So I'm a Spider, So What? begins after an explosion kills an entire classroom. Most students are reincarnated into exciting lives, but our protagonist is an unlucky girl who finds herself in another world, reincarnated as a spider monster.

Episode 16, shows Nameless come close to the better life she dreamed: following her latest evolution, Nameless finds out she's now immortal - a big change since her life has been at stake quite a lot throughout the show. D contacts Nameless to congratulate her on her evolution and make a disturbing revelation.

In the past, Nameless kills the Puppet Teratect but is then viciously attacked by the Origin Teratect Ariel.
