Kumo desu ga, Nani ka Episode 8 Spoilers
In episode 7, the protagonist gains a title, the Ruler of Perseverance, and acquires certain abilities. Moreover, her Evil Eye class of skills gets unlocked. She becomes especially giddy about this and envisions herself acting like an “edgelord.” Her two brains have a conversation, and she decides to select the cursed evil eye for now.
Meanwhile, Schlain, Feirune, and Karnatia speak to Filimøs about the reincarnated individuals. There were 25 students and a teacher in the classroom when the bright beam of light hit and destroyed it. The former students deduce that 19 have been accounted for, but Filimøs, the former teacher, reveals that four reincarnated individuals have already died, leaving only 3 still missing.
During a training session, Hugo suddenly attacks Schlain and informs him that he is tired of playing second fiddle to Schlain. Hugo reveals that he has brought a monster and several associates to either kill or capture everyone from the academy.
This is when Filimøs appears and tells Hugo that the monster and his associates have been dealt with. She then proceeds to erase almost all of his abilities and skills. As Hugo is still one of her former students, Filimøs spares his life, hoping that he will take this incident as a lesson for future behavior. The episode ends as a mysterious woman appears in Hugo’s room and promises him vengeance. In episode 8, the identity of this enigmatic woman might be revealed.
