I'm really upset by the fact that no one has come to pick this up. The first chapter is great to be honest, I've always been a fan of MCs that straight up said "no" because geez I wouldn't go about risking my life for a world I neither care for and has been kidnapped by. I really want to know what happens next. It'd be hilarious if she really held that grudge to the point of actively doing the opposite of defending.

I can already tell just by the protagonists inner monologuing that this is going to be a hilariously fun ride. I love how realistically he views his situation, and that he's not automatically a reincarnated badass. I'll update this when I'm farther in but I can tell this is a keeper.

I didn't even know it was possible to love a story this much. The author fulfills all kinds of pairing preferences and backgrounds in one story. I love how it goes from modern drama to xianxia world. The different types of personalities the MC plays is amazing and shows that just reincarnation doesn't mean the reincarnator has to rework the originals entire personality. You don't have to become black bellied and kill everyone in your way. My favs happen to be when that doesn't happen. So I totally recommend this... more>> to anyone ready for a more serious but still light story that can grab your attention and make you wonder, what's next? <<less

I Got Reincarnated And Mistaken As A Genius?

So when reading this people need to remember that it's meant to be comedic, and to be honest it highly resembles a crack fic. There's no serious plot and thus many plot holes, but its obvious that its intentional. The whole concept revolves around the fact that a moderately intelligent airhead ends up reincarnated and through a series of unintentional events becomes considered a genius. I consider it well done for a side story to be read while your waiting for the other shoe to drop in a more serious... more>> novel. And tbh I like seeing how many tropes can be fit into a story line. <<less

I like the story, but if your not making notes on the side or reading the entire thing at once its hard to keep up. I'm waiting for issues that appeared in the beginning to make an appearance and be resolved but theres nothing like that. I like the concept. I just dislike the delivery. El is very oblivious, which can be as frustrating as it is funny.

Everyone is originally convinced that he's some sort of doll, rather than a human being, and at some point his retainer, Matthias, realized that El might have been aware since infancy. BUT NOTHING HAPPENS! Nothing at all, no one ever questions how smart El is, why he was so emotionless, or how he can use ice magic.

I love this story, I've followed the manga for years and the light novel seems to be the exact same story this far. I don't however like many of the characters. Natsume, for example, isn't an entirely lovable character especially when things are really put into perspective.
Spoiler

I give her leeway on making Harutora promise to become her shikigami while they were children (she was taught this way by her family and probably expected Harutora to understand what she was asking of him since he should have been taught this as well). What I don't like is that fact that she created a shikigami to befriend Harutora, lived a double life with him, and used that shikigami's demise as a toll to bind Harutora to her. If it was just this I could be mollified but she's abusive on top of that. The storytelling plays it as humor but many of the scenarios don't warrant her to take such offense. Natsume constantly uses her status to order him around, ruins relationships she sees as a threat to her romantic pursuits, has beaten him because of misunderstandings (which is a trope I personally hate because these characters don't have the right), all the while establishing their relationship as childhood friends (sometimes just Onmyouji/shikigami) and then punishing him like a wronged girlfriend when he's in a situation she doesn't like.

don't get me wrong I still love this novel characters like her just rub me the wrong way.
