@Folker46 I stopped reading it because I wanted to start with the protagonist the story started with. I came back to it later because I enjoyed the beginning so much but I skipped a few books as there were low original protagonist interest in it. Then I started picking up what was going on with Shun et al and went back and picked them up after all. I like the new version of Kumoko and after the various plot lines with Shun and friends settle out and the stories are all caught up to the same timeline it's interesting again, but it did get confusing in the middle. Personally though my favorite arc of the book was the first one.
