We learned back in the summer of 2018 with the fifth volume of So I’m a Spider, So What? that an anime adaptation of the property was in the works. Back in February, Crunchyroll announced their pickup of the series and announced their availability for it is set for North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East.
Now, the official production has updated with a new key visual to the right and an announcement that the two-cour series is being pushed to January 2021, citing production delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is, again, expected with a number of productions planned for the summer and fall seasons this year as shutdowns during the spring and slow start-ups in the summer will cause things to be pushed back.
Aoi Yuki is set to star.
It comes from the novels by Okina Baba and Tsukasa Kiryu. The manga adaptation is produced by Asahiro Kakashi.
Check out our review of the first manga release from Yen Press.

Plot Concept: I’m gonna survive, just watch me!
I was your average, everyday high-school girl, but now I’ve been reborn in a magical world…as a spider?! Wait–this isn’t how these stories are supposed to go! Can I get a do-over? …No? But how am I supposed to survive in this big, scary dungeon as one of the weakest monsters? It’s “every spider for herself” in here! I gotta figure out the rules to this QUICK, or I’ll have to kiss my short second life goodbye…
