On January 2nd, Crunchyroll released a sneak peek of So I’m a Spider, So What?. The 10-minute video will be available to watch worldwide for a week, with the anime premiere following.
The anime was originally planned to air back in 2020. However, COVID-19 delayed the premiere. We will now be able to watch it starting on January 8th! Here is a summary of the plot according to Crunchyroll:
I, the protagonist, was just an ordinary high school girl, but suddenly I was reincarnated as a spider monster in a fantasy world. Not only that, but I awakened in a dungeon filled with vicious monsters. Armed with only my human knowledge and my overwhelming positivity, I’m forced to use spiderwebs and traps to defeat far stronger monsters just to stay alive… So begins the labyrinth survival story of a girl with incredible mental strength living as one of the lowest-ranked beasts!
