Episode 26 - Arachne greeted after her ressurection

Arachnophobia greeting their head after her revival.

Arachnophobia is a large and formidably powerful organization which even predates the creation of Death Scythe Meister Academy. Over the eight hundred years, Arachne Gorgon had secretly expanded the "network" with the assistance of her steward, Mosquito.[1] Arachnophobia hold a very powerful military force with enough resources and troops to even go head-to-head with one of the most powerful organizations in the world: Death Scythe Meister Academy.[2]


Arachnophobia is split up into several divisions:

  • Research Division: A division which specializes in researching and developing Demon Tools, such as the Morality Manipulation Machine. Mosquito seems to have a hand in this division, being the project leader for that particular Demon Tool.[3]
  • Enchanter's Division: A division made up of Enchanters who use Golems to fight. Not much is known about this division but it seems that Giriko takes command of this particular division.[4]
  • Samurai Division: A division of samurais exist within Arachnophobia, with Tsubaki Nakatsukasa speculating there to be about 300 members within this particular group. All of them are also Japanese with the exception of Mifune, who seems to command this division despite their resentment towards his ethnicity.[5]
