tldr: Beautiful girl doesn’t know she’s beautiful, is hated by a few of her female classmates because of her interacting with the ikemen of the class who likes her, and after being forced by a jealous goddess (Saria) to be super weak, she’s forced to face an evil god... whom she eats and becomes super op.
Soooooo spoiler for first chapter? In time it's shown that she's a bit mental, but she IS AT LEAST 100 Million y/o based off of the first chapter, as it's stated she became the last Earthling 100 million years ago, so give her some leeway with her mental state.
This will absolutly sound terrible: I’ve been waiting for Makato to absolutly annihilate the man-child ‘hero’ but as it’s been paused mid-arc, I’m sitting here like a foodie waiting for the buffet to open while stuffing my hunger with the side dishes that we’ve been provided thus far (47 of them or so).
Namely between the MC and her fiancé Wolf, but they do get their time.
The setting has been well portrayed, but not enough for you to be able to guess what is coming next when reading it the first time around. The mystery is kept by withholding crucial information on the setting, such as what the limits to magic are, until it’s both necessary and relevant to the specific moment in the story. Of course world building elements are pointed out, such the existence of magic, but it’s not an information dump as it keeps it’s pace (though I got thrown through a loop at the beginning of the 3rd arc as it went from the MC being ~10 (2 years until starting magic school at 12), to her already being in her 6th year (so approximately ~18 y/o) which is quite the time skip without any specific warning. Not a big deal though, just me being an idiot?
Chapter 36 cough cough
Repetitive theme (Go to new place, fall in love with woman/women nigh immediatly, get to know people around the place, brute force anything that opposes which causes the woman/women to fall in love, solve big problem (s) in the area, and run away after misunderstandings happen between him and the woman/women. Add in some comedy here and there and you get the idea), 'Bland Harem Members' (Woman/Women have some problems they can't solve, MC shows up and solves it, woman/women fall in love and chase after MC to fix misunderstanding (s) that happen along the way. Once they find him, +1 to Harem and proceed to either 1-Be thirsty for MC, 2-Be jealous of other harem members when they're spoiled by MC, or 3-Give generic replies (if they even reply.)) Beta MC (MC runs away from rejection, when he faces a woman he's shy or an idiot, won't love the harem until he settles things with Aria (Holy Woman childhood friend who left him for the hero) and even when he's supported by his harem he's cowardly at times.) and lastly Too Much Comedy Replacing Story (There are full chapters that are running gags like the bandits.)
Provides a proper and realistic reason for the MC to have an actual trauma which does give him some character (Aria the Holy Woman aka Childhood Friend who he WAS ENGAGED TO (when they were 12 yeah, but they were to get married at 15) until she goes off to fight with the hero a year after and falls in love with the hero. Yes... it's NTR... Then 2 years later the MC finds out that she came back after the demon lord is dead and sees her kissing the hero in an ally... and it's his 15th BDay... So yeah he's got a trauma. A NORMAL GUY found the love of his life kissing another dude in secret. Big surprise, it's a trauma.) The comedy is gold (Cheesy comedy is gouda) and personally my favorite, EVERYONE'S A HUMAN (It may be hidden but the vast majority of character that are introduced by name have human desires (I need to reread to confirm if there's some that weren't named), abiet some seem shallow but it's realistic in how it shows different people's humanity.
(Possible spoiler:) Fair warning though-It's a very sad story once you realize what's going on.
A few reviews say that it doesn’t exist one way or another and they’re right! But it’s not that she’s never been intelligent/cunning, it’s that she’s depressed. IF YOU READ THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS WHILE FOCUSING ON THE MC, you realize that her family is very strict. Anyone who isn’t useful is disposed of one way or another. Now the MC messed up (not entirely her fault, but you find out eventually), so she’s thinking ‘failure means I’m useless, so I may as well be dead to my family which has been everything I’ve ever known’... So yeah, she’s depressed.
Now what does that have to do with her intellect? Well, have you ever been depressed? Anxious? Or even had an off day? YOU GENERALLY DON’T THINK LIKE A MAD GENIUS BECAUSE YOUR MIND IS IN A THOUSAND DIFFERENT PLACES!!! Granted she does a bit better later on (probably because Yua is an amazing Yuri FL), so give Veena some time to recover.
