At first it sounded like a stupid story, but it turned out to be an awesome and unquie story.

MC is not overpowered. He can run out of energy by not selling products and he can be destroyed by taking too much damage. He is powerless to stop any danger to himself without help. He can only repeat the preprogrammed phrases.

Spoiler

He is limited to selling what he had purchased in his previous life.

The only problem is the translation speed. At the current speed of a chapter every 20. 5 days it would take a 11 years to finish.

I was like, WTF? Vending Machine? Japanese really are weird to come up with this kind of premise...

But it was an effective strategy, I become curious and read this thing. But then I was disappointed... in a good way. Though the basic premise is ridiculous. Somehow it also interesting. Maybe, one day we'll see a Demon King got beaten by a Vending Machine... A goddamn Vending Machine!! How awesome is that?

Btw, I'm still waiting for the Transformation skill.
Yes that's right! A Transformer in another world!

I love the character so far, he’s a funny guy (vending machine)... Not that pervy like Rudeus (MT) Just your regular perv

I’ve read 5th chapter, he’s quite smart and kind to other.

What I learned from this novel:-

... more>>
Spoiler

1. The land of the deviants that is Japan, has plenty of weird vending machines. So much weirdness; the one that sells used panties is one of the normal ones.


2. The land of the deviants that is Japan, also has weird people like the author of this novel that writes about a beta MC that loves vending machines so much, he reincarnates as one when killed by one. Pun not intended.


3. Despite obvious limited mobility, MC do get involved in many adventures, such as helping to defeat a bandit group and also single-handedly slay a dungeon level's boss.


4. Using the fact that in the land of the deviants that is Japan, has plenty of weird vending machines, the author skillfully choreographed some crazy action sequences that actually allows the MC to succeed in those adventures mentioned above. And the author successfully done so without breaking suspension of disbelief or venturing to deus-ex-machina territory.


5. This is because this novel has plenty of slice-of-life chapters where the MC flaunt off many forms of weird vending machines that only exists in The Land of the Deviants.

[collapse]

All in all, this is a solid 5-star novel, which is a rarity in Japan.

The main character is a vending machine. If you ever wondered how a vending machine might have an active social life and maybe even a harem, or if you’re in the rare minority who haven’t ever wondered about that, but want something good to read, this is it. This is another of those series that is written about somebody from Japan who dies in real life and is reincarnated in another world. Like most of those novels, it is written entirely from the main characters perspective. The... more>> only difference is that instead of ending up as your typical hero, monster, or something else OP, he ends up as a Japanese vending machine. That being said, it is original, funny, and basically just plain cool. If you’re looking for a slice of life novel that is a little different, check this out.

You know, there are rarely novels that make me going as far, as leaving a mark upon them with a review. I tend to keep my thoughts to myself, but there are cases, where I feel like rising my voice.

What I love about reading novels, is that they let you to explore and experience a boundless depths of possibilities.

And above all, I love novels that are able to hook you up, to ignite a desire to know more. To reach further, to sink deeper in the world and... more>> stories they present.

And very surprisingly, this is such a case.

As a big fan of klinH and his/her Hon'yaku, I was aware, that this novel was picked up there. To be honest, at first I was somewhat annoyed. As I desire more and more of the other stuff they've got there, I've felt like this silly thing is pointlessly draining klinHs attention. Bear in mind tho, that despite I say like it like that, I am fully and well aware how those emotions are silly on their own. Like, who am I to feel like that about other persons hobby? Well, we all know it. But I bet'cha a handful of fingers (more like 2), that you do this too. It's a very humane thing.

And this peculiar novel, which I've avoided even looking at for quite a while now, was picked up by me today, out of sheer boredom. And man, it got me. Two fast for flinching.

I've been reading it whole day, even at work, during my short breaks, because I've enjoyed it to my surprise. I've enjoyed it very much. And this is the factor, that I deem as most important for novel to have. It-has-to-be-enjoyable.

It's a story about a guy, who have a strange hobby. Very weird hobby that I assume don't really exist outside of Japan. He's a vending machine freak. He loves 'em so much, that he actually died because of one of those. And... he got reincarnated in another, much more fantasybendworld. Yeah, I know. Typical.

BUT, he got reincarnated as a vending machine. A mahou vending machine-cha... kun.

He has this game-like cheat-like predisposition that all recent Asian light/web novel protags gets, but this time it's not overbearing. It's radical, comical and man it's fun.

I'm in awe. A well deserved respect for the author, for coming up with something so amazing.
A concious vending machine in a fantasy setting.
Splendid.

I give it round 5. It's ain't a masterpiece, it won't be made into a movie, or anime or comic. I doubt it, really. But it's a fine 5 star novel, at least for me, because despite everything, it made my day much better. Much brighter, and dragged a handful of laughs of me. Which is what I've desired. <<less

Comparable to "Reincarnated To A Sword"! This Novel feels smooth and nice. I feel I am learning many things about Vending Machines as I read on. I hope we get to the point of !Pod and electrical devices, Vending Machines.

I like the potential Romance. A Vending Machine picking up girls is pretty hilarious. I love Hyurumi, best girl definitely. I don't like the Main Heroine though. She's a muscle headed and stupid girl. A waste of space lol

I had my doubts about this Novel since he sounded obsessed with... more>> VMs but then we understand why he is so enthuastic about it. Now I feel like a Vending Machine Otaku. The Author is really clever in the OP development. The Vending Machine gets more HI Tech as time goes on <<less

It's really cute so far and the MC's obsession in his past life helps him out a lot in the new one. Breezy and light, with likeable characters so far. I'm very interested to see the limits of his capabilities as a vending machine as the story progresses.

This dude is putting more work into being a vending machine than I put into living.

But realistically I am unsure how far they can really take the plot. So far the relationship between the two leading MCs has been pretty great, but it is hard to imagine many more interesting adventures coming without some sort of shakeup. If it just stays in a slice of life pattern or "slowly powering up" pattern then this story, while pleasant, is not going to be as good as it could be.

lol, funny story.

MC is an Otaku whose hobby instead of being anime/games, was only vending machines. Vending machine maniac (how does that even work?) who gets "reborn" as a vending machine.

Currently (chapter 4) is how he's working out his new "abilities". Need more time/chapters to see if it's superb or crap though.

The funny thing about this novel is that in japan you can basically get anything you want from a vending machine.

When the supermarket is closed and you can't buy the things you want, go to a nearby vending machine. When it's raining outside and you forgot your umbrella, go to a vending machine. Hell even when you're hungry and no Restaurant are open, no worries there is restaurant called vending machine.

Yes they basically put a vending machines inside a building With chairs and tables.......

If you think that... more>> japan is famous for there pornogerphy, than you're right, but when you add vending machines to the mix and a whole bunch of random stuff than you're just crazy you know?

Alrighty you can expect great thing about this story (a vending machine maniac)

....... yea j-just read the story and you'll know what I mean....... <<less

If you are looking for a story to pass the time, and get a good laugh this is it. The characters are well developed and it might get interesting to see how they pan out as the story progresses.

Makes you wonder if somebody will make a smartphone reincarnation next..... oh who am I kidding, it'll happen!

How does this novel works, I don't know, but I love it!

The story is may sounds ridiculous at first, but it's a good reincarnation novel with a heart-warming plot, in fact, I think it's one of the bests I had read about that genre!

The MC and his situations changes from funny and cute to serious and tragic at times and, when you less expect, you are cheering for him to win the situations and come back alive.

To be honest, I thought it was a waste of time and I... more>> would never read it, but, thanks to the boredom, I was able to see a good story and have a good time.

I recommend for someone that can't find anything new to read about MCs going to another world. After reading
this novel, you may start liking the genre again. I know that I did.

(Update as of chapter 42: This last chapter has quite a few Grammar errors, enough to make it difficult to stomach. Most of the paragraphs are almost indecipherable gibberish as far as grammar goes. Not nearly as entertaining as previous chapters either. I'm guessing there was just no editor/proof reader this time around to fix things up.)

Another one I can't give a proper review to, my current bias is too skewed because of personal preference. I was not expecting this story to be this entertaining. I was expecting... more>> something extremely mundane without my MC interaction.

It's a fun read, plays on a bunch of arch-types.

Not my usual cup-a-tea, but it's better than a lot of the other stuff I've been reading to pass the time. Maybe in the future after re-reading it a few times I'll come back and be able to do a proper review.

It's a really interesting premise, and very well written. You get hooked pretty quick! A slice-of-life story, but so interesting you want to just keep reading it.

There's not really any romance - he's a vending machine. I like that there's no drama about it.

Aaaaand! You learn a lot about vending machines. And then get hungry. Uuuwaaaaa~ Oden...

It's your basic reincarnation story in a fantasy world with rpg mechanics for the protagonist. Except he's a vending machine. It's a great satire of the genre. Where as other novels would have the MC decide to go down class upgrade path to gain op magic or fighting ability, in this one he levels up to be capable of selling instant ramen.

Read It!

Definitely give this a go. It breaks through the usual reincarnation tropes. Its hilarious and heart warming. It also captures a realistic feeling, as in, "I would do what this MC does. "

He loves vending machines so he's making the most out of being one!

Honestly, I have a fondness for series like these. It's always great to see how the author can take the most idiotic premise and execute it well.

In any case, this is one of those cases. The protagonist isn't overly special, but he has an extreme enthusiasm for vending machines. Seeing what absurd antics he can pull is fun, whether it is trying to sell food to stay alive, fighting bosses single-handedly, or taking care of certain societal issues. Sure, he uses common sense like a lot of isekaI protagonists,... more>> but he can only do that because of all of the crazy vending machines he has encountered throughout his life. The heroines (?) and side characters aren't that well developed in and of themselves, but they have fun dialogue with the protagonist and each other. The novel's gimmick of restricting the protagonist's speech to a few words, and the side characters trying to interpret what he's trying to say make simple conversations more fun than they should be. Eventually, they grow to love the vending machine, and he grows to love them. There's a real sense of community between the characters of the novel.

The pacing is overall slow, and this story isn't for everyone mainly for that reason (and the absurd premise). For me however, it is very entertaining. If you want a weird SOL story, try this one out.

Interesting and funny. But unfortunately, the author failed to keep the momentum going. It's going blah from, like chapter 40 or so.

Interesting MC. But the main heroine (or side kick) is kind of generic. And the potential harem is generic too.

I drop this novel around chapter 45 or so. I think I'll try again after stock pulling the chapter to 200 or so
