Halerious! Our MC is juat the best! I had a great laugh. Now current ration is 1 becouse someone decided to be a jerk, but trust me its great. And the hero had to be warned by the author himself/herself

It's funny, cute and as a nice story. At first I thought that it was and ripoff of kumo-desu-ga-nani-ka but oh was I wrong. Over all I really enjoy reading it and can't wait for more.

Having read the three chapters put out initially, this looks like a comedic slice-of-life of an OP disguised monstergirl.

A short summary covering the first two chapters: In this verse Arachne young eat each other during development because they have a 'gain strength from eating monsters' ability. Protagonist doesn't want any part of that, and escapes into a human settlement. She has a human disguise and sets up shop as a tailor secretly using her own silk. From there she sets out to become the best clothes shop in town, acquiring... more>> more and more ridiculous materials to work with as she gets stronger.

The story has potential, a fairly interesting premise, and is quite funny (I genuinely laughed at what happened with the demon king). Considering it's relationship with pseudo-kunochi, one might wonder if there's going to be yuri in the foreseeable future. Possibly, there's no romance at all yet, but yuri is teased at. Either way though, it's an enjoyable light-hearted read so far. <<less

I didn't expect much of this story but it's definitely fun.

First thing to keep in mind though is it is not a battle novel. I could explain more but this type of series is more fun when you go in more or less blind.

What I will say is that the story knows what it wants to do and it does it well. Again it's not a battle series at all and instead if just about the heroine in her quest to start a tailor shop.

The heroine has a charming personality... more>> and the humor of the series is simple but enjoyable. This is not A quality material by any means but it's still a pleasure to read. It's simple but a good kind of simple.

Also while it only have a few chapters right now they are actually decently sized chapters so it's worth reading right now. <<less

For about the first half of the first chapter, I liked it. Yes, it was a bit reminiscent of Kumo desu..., but it was kind of interesting. 'So she'll blend into society as a dressmaker.' I thought. Simple, but workable.

Then the point of view switched. I won't say what happened then, but the story thereafter went downhill fast. The story is, in no uncertain terms, a weird cutesy lolicon power fantasy without grounding of any level. The main character is literally force fed supreme power in the second chapter, so... more>> there are no stakes at any point. Just stupid, cliched, often perverted, and overall unpleasant jokes. <<less

The premise was quite good, but after our protagonist reaches the city and opens a tailor shop the story starts to speed forwards at insane rate, peaking at chapter 3 where...

... more>>
Spoiler

... the Hero asks protagonist for better armor so that he could defeat the Demon King. Protagonist goes and defeats Demon King herself, strips him nakes and sells his armor to the bewildered Hero.

[collapse]

After that there's no plot - each new chapter is just a small story, sometimes split across two chapters - and up to last currently released chapter they are increasingly non-interesting. There's a whole chapter about how she made earpicks and tested them on a female customer, of all things. Well, sorry, but this kind of story is fun only for the first time, and this one is far from the first to me. Two stars for the lack of Slice of Life tag (EDIT: yeah, fixed this) and giving me expectations.

EDIT: recommendations are hilarious, because most of them are nothing like Arachne since they actually have a continious plot. The only relatively similar is Guild's Cheat Receptionist. <<less

This is a "thoroughbred story", its a parody about a story about a story that was about a story.

You basically need to have read the right novels before you read this for this to make any sense at all, like many JP stories they are a kind of snake that eats its own tail. And to understand those novels you likely need to have consumed a large amount of either anime or manga to understand the rather odd tropes exclusive to JP.

Its not a story that will ever win "best... more>> story ever" and that is its strength it does not aim above its level and just sets about having some easy to ready fun, my biggest complaint is that its not actually funny´just amusing. <<less

This is just plain old silly fun, and I love it. To be fair, if you're looking for something with substance, walk away. It's nothing but fluff. Thankfully, I enjoy moments where phenomenal cosmic power is used to be a fairy godmother or just to break common sense, so it doesn't get under my skin.

Not bad but its more of a slice of life with heroic fantasy.

The typical MC is op because of cheat but since its more of a slice of life its don't come out has that bad its more of a comedic novel in another world.

Really OP cute loli but seems to get others to nearly cross the line...

Light hearted story without actual fights, just showing how OP Shiori-chan is...

She is Cinderella's fairy godmother although she's actually a few months old, looks 13, mentally 20+

Really OP so if you don' like this kind of novels don't read

Ridiculous, hilarious, heartwarming, interesting, adorable, addicting, and makes you laugh so loud people look at you funny then get annoyed so much they yell at you to stop and when you don't stop they toss things at you only to then join you later when they read it.

Saying anything else will just be a spoiler.
