So I’m a Spider, So What? is an anime series adapted from Okina Baba’s light novel of the same name. Its first season aired from January to July 2021, and the audience received it well. The unique premise of the anime won so many hearts. 

The show revolves around a teenage girl who finds herself in a new fantasy world after a mysterious spell is cast on her. She reincarnates into a spider of all the animals. Now, all she has to rely on is her instincts to survive and this is not an easy task. 

As per Crunchyroll, the plot is, 

“The last thing that a high school girl remembers is a strange explosion ripping through her classroom. In the aftermath of the tragedy, she finds herself reborn as a lowly spider hatchling, one amongst thousands in a vast cave. Furthermore, the world she is incarnated into is a point-based skill system, prompting her to level up as quickly as possible if she is to survive the treacherous environment and persevere in the face of insurmountable odds.” 

What Happened at the End of Season 1? 

The whole story of the anime takes a turn by the end of the first season’s finale. The protagonist of the show is challenged by the Earth Dragon Araba, the villain. The spider Kumoko has been gaining power and expertise throughout the season and overcoming several obstacles and foes. 

The climactic episode of the season shows her defeating the dragon using her cunning and skills to avoid Araba’s assaults and counterattack with her most powerful abilities. She is hurt and is on the verge of losing her life. Her victory cost her high. This conclusion of the show leaves all the fans wondering what destiny has for Kumoko and the other characters as they continue their trip through this complex and enigmatic realm. 

What Will Be the Plot of the Season? 

The first season of So I’m a Spider, So What? was split into two courses, each containing 12 episodes. The anime has adapted the original light novel series up to Volume 3 of a total of 16 volumes.

As per some sources, the second season will adopt the 8th volume of the source material, in which Kumoko and her company continue to journey to the Demon Realm. But their tour gets halted when they reach the town of the Renxandt Empire, south of the Mystic Mountains after getting troubled by an ogre, forcing the Renxandt military to intrude.
