The series has revealed a trailer which lets us take a listen to the main character, a spider being voiced by Aoi Yuki! Yuki has left a comment about being cast in the role, which we have translated for you down below.
Comment from Aoi Yuki
These days I seem to participate in a lot of stories where someone is born in an isekai, but as expected it’s my first time as a spider. I will work hard to give everybody a cute, trendy monster high school girl who can smoothly switch between intense feelings and funny jokes!
The narrator of this story is a regular high school girl, who is suddenly transported to a fantasy world and into the body of a monster spider. On top of everything, she has woken up in a dungeon where mostly evil demons reside. She uses her human knowledge and her undying optimism as a weapon and fights for her survival against monsters that have a way higher level than her by making use of her spider webs and making traps…
The weakest in the food chain with the great mentality of a high school girl tries to survive this dangerous labyrinth!
