Originally, unveiled during the Anime Awards that was held last year and then recently at Anime Expo Lite. So, I’m a Spider, so what? Is set to premiere in Japan on January 8th, 2021.

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!

Kumuko (Voiced by Aoi Yuki)

A high school girl of self-professed low standing who has reincarnated as a spider.

She uses battle tactics that make up for her low stats with her mastery of agility, spider thread, and poison fangs.

Schlain Zagan Analeit (Shun) Voiced by Shun Horie

The fourth prince of the Kingdom of Analeit. His name in his previous life was Yamada Shunsuke.

Karnatia Seri Anabald (Katia) Voiced by: Nao Toyama

The daughter of Duke Anabald. In her previous life, she was a boy named Ooshima Kanata, but she reincarnated as a beautiful girl. She’s a prodigy on a par with Shun, and has been his best friend since their former life. Her speech is normally elegant and refined, but when talking with others who have reincarnated, she talks like a boy.

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Feirune Visual

Feirune (Voiced by: Eri Kitamura)

Shun’s pet Earth Wyrm. In her previous life, she was a girl named Shinohara Mirei, but she reincarnated as a monster instead of a human. As a monster, her stats grow at a very fast rate, and she has excellent situational judgment. She has a cheerful, open personality, but she was a bully in her former life, and this shows in her behavior.

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Filimøs Harrifenas Visual

Filimøs Harrifenas (Voiced by: Kaya Okuno)

In her previous life, she was Okazaki Kanami, homeroom teacher to the kids who were reincarnated, and they affectionately called her “Oka-chan.” After reincarnating, she began attending school with Shun and the others as their classmate. Since she reincarnated as an elf, she looks younger than she actually is. She’s a caring teacher who continues to follow her students after their reincarnation, but she has many secrets.

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Suresia Visual

Suresia (Voiced by: Yui Ogura)

The second princess of the Kingdom of Analeit. As Shun’s half-sister, born to a different mother not long after his birth, her talents rival his. Her obsession with her brother Shun is extreme enough to put others off, and she’s noticeably hostile toward all girls who get friendly with him.

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Hugo Baint Renxandt Visual

Hugo Baint Renxandt (Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa)

The crown prince of the Renxandt Empire. In his previous life, he was Natsume Kengo, and he was regarded as the leader of the class. His skills are the real deal, but his habit of exaggerating his own abilities detracts from the magnitude of his power. He’s as belligerent as he was in his former life, viewing Shun as his rival.

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Yurin Ullen Visual

Yurin Ullen (Voiced by: Aimi Tanaka)

A Saint candidate in the Holy Kingdom of Alleius. Her name in her previous life was Hasebe Yuika. She’s very serious and well-mannered, but often loses sight of what’s going on around her. After reincarnating, she inherited the life of a girl who was abandoned by her parents and raised by the church, and she is now a fanatical believer in the Word of God religion, which follows the creed of “We improve our skills so that we may hear the voice of God.”

So, I'm a Spider, So What?- Julius Zagan Analeit Visual

Julius Zagan Analeit (Voiced by Junya Enoki)

The second prince of the Kingdom of Analeit. Julius is Shun’s older brother and the strongest hero among all humankind. Despite his mastery of both swordsmanship and magic and his achievements in combat, he remains virtuous and not at all proud. He is a true hero, devoting himself to fighting for world peace.
