So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 1

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 1

Okina Baba

I used to be a normal high school girl but in the blink of an eye, I woke up in a place I've never seen before and-and I was reborn as a spider?! How could something that's nothing more than a tiny spider (that's me) possibly survive in literally the worst dungeon ever? Are there no rules? There should be some rules! Who the hell is responsible for this? SHOW YOUR FACE!

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 2

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 2

Okina Baba

After many trials and challenges, our reborn spider has become very good at fighting (and eating!) monsters. Getting a little full of herself, she's rushed headlong into some unexplored area and now, she's facing her worst enemy... a huge dragon!

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 3

Okina Baba

Who knew being strong meant going hungry...? After making it through the fiery Middle Stratum and evolving again, things have been a cakewalk for me-and also one of the worst times of my life. I've gotten so strong that every living thing is avoiding me like the plague. Even monsters that wouldn't leave me alone for a second are running away like their lives depend on it. I mean... all I want to do is eat them! Is that too much to ask for?! At this point, about the only thing that WON'T flee the moment it sees me is the earth dragon Araba, and I sure as hell can't have that for a meal... right...?

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 4

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 4

Okina Baba

I've finally escaped the monster infested Elroe Labyrinth and now making my way towards the land of humans! But what was waiting for me on the surface was something even worse than dragons... it's MY MOTHER!! We don't have the greatest relationship for various spidery reasons but am I going to make it out of this family reunion in one piece?!

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 5

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 5

Okina Baba

When someone asks if you're a guardian spirit, you say...? I've really done it this time. After I saved my old classmate who's been reborn as an overpowered vampire, the townspeople took it upon themselves to worship me like some kind of guardian spirit. Not that I'm complaining about the delicious free food, but... I'm a loner by nature! I'm TERRIBLE at dealing with people! And they're not monsters, so it's not like I can just kill them to make them go away. What am I gonna do...?

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 6

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 6

Okina Baba

I-i-it's not like a spider needs friends!

I did it! I'm finally an Arachne! ...Aaand things already aren't going the way I thought they would. I'm inexplicably on a road trip with the Demon Lord, a reincarnated baby, and her troubled vampire guardian. I don't really interact with them much, besides subjecting my reborn classmate to insane training, watching the party sneak off into villages, hearing about the delicious food they eat... Wait, hold up. Doesn't it seem like I'm the only one who's being left out?!? W-w-well, the monsters up here taste delicious, so whatever! Sniff, sniff. I wonder if my other brains are having a better time... What are they even up to?

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 7

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 7

Okina Baba

Seriously! What genre is this?!

So get this... Me, the Demon Lord, the baby bloodsucker, Mera, and the puppet posse are on our way to the demon territory when Mera falls into a hole and gets attacked by giant ants. We wipe 'em out in no time, but the commotion (and totally not me sticking my nose where it doesn't belong) just haaappens to wake up some ancient, hyper-advanced killing machines, and now the entire planet is gonna be destroyed! It's such a big deal that Güli-güli, the pontiff, and even Potimas are teaming up with the Demon Lord. Wait, when did they all get so chummy? And I'm sorry, what? They want ME to take out the main weapon?! No waaay!

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 8

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 8

Okina Baba

Deification is one hell of a nerf...

So I'm a god, so what? I'm weaker than ever! I have no stats, no skills, and no physical stamina! In fact, the only thing I got out of this upgrade was...legs. But since I never have the energy to walk, the others have no choice but to haul me around like a piece of luggage. Can't we just get to the demon realm already?! We're so close! One final leap over the Mystic Mountains, and- Wait, what? There's a rampaging ogre killing everyone in sight? Greaaat. Of course there's a surprise boss battle right before the checkpoint. Work your OP magic, Demon Lord! ...Hey, wait a minute. I recognize that ogre!

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 9

Okina Baba

Let's go pay God a visit...

So I can make thread again. That's... something, I guess. Don't get me wrong-I could be doing a whole lot worse than pumping out thread all day while cooped up in some demon's mansion. I just wish my other powers would come back alrea-Oh... they are back. When the heck did that happen?! And why am I suddenly, like, really good at teleporting? I bet I could go anywhere I want! In fact, that gives me an idea... Hey, D, I think it's time we met face-to-face!

So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 10

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 10

Okina Baba

SPY, MY PRETTIES!

Y'know... understanding the reason for your existence, learning the ultimate truth of the world, and attaining godhood would give most people a lot to think about. But me? I've got better things to do, like making mini-spider clones! Look at this one-isn't she precious?! There's a LOT more where she came from, and I've sent them all over the world to act as my eyes and ears. I bet the Demon Lord will find the info I've gathered super useful for dealing with the impending demonic rebellion. Oh, did I not mention that before...? 'Cause that's totally a thing.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HERO?

As the chosen of the gods and defender of all humanity, everyone expects me to do great things. From the tender age of six, it's been my duty to serve humankind, and during my first trial by fire in Keren County... I failed miserably. Since then, I've devoted my every waking moment to becoming someone worthy of my position. Though I'm still too weak to accomplish much on my own, as long as I'm with my friends, I'm sure there's something we can do to help people. Hmm? Where's the spider? What are you talking about...?

THIS COLD WAR JUST WENT HOT!

This is a special spider field report coming to you straight from the human-demon border where a massive battle has erupted! The Demon Lord is finally launching an all-out assault on the fortresses guarding the human realm's frontier and has committed hundreds of thousands of soldiers for the attack. On the other side, the humans are putting up a stiff resistance! All signs point to a bloody day of fighting for both forces--though that's kinda the point, y'know? Hopefully the hero comes onto the field as planned...

Okina Baba

THIS SYSTEM IS RIGGED...

Man... whoever thought being a god would make life easy needs a serious reality check. I mean, I offed humanity's champion, then I hacked into the world's System to literally erase the pesky Hero title once and for all, but I still can't catch a break. Now Yamada's inherited his brother's title, and it looks like he and the other reincarnations are on their way to the elf village juuust when the demon army is looking to conquer it. Ugh, this is becoming way too big a headache... Time for plan B. I think I'll have a little "chat" with Sariel.

So I'm a Spider, So What?: Book 14

Okina Baba

THE MOMENT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!

Just when you think things can't get any more complicated... Our army is in position to kick off the final battle with the elves, whoop-de-do. But there's still the problem of Yamada and the rest of D's former classmates' inevitable clash with Vampy, Mr. Oni, and in the worst-case-scenario, the Demon Lord herself. I can't believe I'm saying this, but can't we all just get along? At least long enough for me to wipe that stupid smirk off Potimas's face and put him in the ground once and for all?! Assuming the Demon Lord doesn't steal the kill, that is. I swear, if there's one person who hates him more than I do, it's her. What's their history anyway... ?
