This is a blatant wish fulfillment fantasy, made especially obvious when the author practically bleeds through during the s*x scenes. The MC (or author) of course has to be an absolute chick magnet, right? As he evolves, he again, retakes the role of harem MC of his previous life and enjoys many days of snu snu. The popular playboy MC dies? Okay let's have him reincarnated in to the weakest race, only to have said race be imbued with the the ability to evolve and make void the quality that... more>> was theoretically supposed to have been a handicap in the first place, rendering any possible obstacles obsolete before he even encounters them. Anyway, there's no plot at all and this exists for the sole purpose of self inserting and if that's what you're looking for then go ahead and take a read. <<less

Trash. Disparities in terrible naming sense (are all the characters immigrants of varying nations? Richard, which is Ricardo in the raw, then Sarusu and Ryuze?) The author is uninformed in the novel's intended subject matter and makes obvious their own ignorance (scum nature) and lack of writing ability with their portrayal of a hateful, idiotic girl that was supposed to unironically make a display of being clever despite the character and writer both appearing completely bereft of not only common sense but also basic human decency. While the MC concerns... more>> herself with performing an imitation that is in actuality a pitiful mockery of intelligence that she does not even possess, she very shamelessly succeeds only in emulating an existence that can be perceived as nothing more than an utter embarrassment to humanity. It can also be said that that the abhorrent disposition of the narrator, especially her disdain for the overweight, accurately reflects the author's own unprofessional prejudice because although it is stated in the beginning that it is mostly her unbecoming personality, with precedence over appearance, that results in her unpopularity, they fail to maintain even such a simple plot point consistently.

Spoiler

It becomes overshadowed immediately by the MC herself making constantly scathing remarks about only the state of her body and her intention to do away with it but never once does she give the slightest mention to her reputation as an abusive and spoiled idiot with no worth (which she deludes herself into believing that she no longer is with the recent acquisition of useless memories) or come to the obvious conclusion that treating people better is also a viable solution to alleviate the likelihood of reaching the death route that she still deserves. She then mistakenly deems the state of being fat ("lazy") and having inevitably natural body odor ("unhygienic") as the sole sources of the hate directed at her and has so far fixated on rectifying only those superficial qualities because her stupidity is so severe that it renders her incapable of multitasking/critical thinking, unable to repair slighted relations in tandem with her dieting.

That also means that her innate b*tchiness resonates so strongly with the original villain character's that she thinks that there is nothing about her past and current personalities worth fixing. And even her ex-fiancé who found her personality more off-putting than her appearance contradicts himself (he put value in the prospect of her being kinder than she seemed) by suddenly declaring upon their first meeting that the fact that she was overweight alone was the only factor that contributed to his contempt for her. But, what the hell? In the author's ridiculously, nonsensically flawed and underdeveloped world, the commoners scarcely bathe and even the wealthy do so only once a day; how the population has not yet died out but is somehow even flourishing is beyond me. This is also another testament to the MC's idiocy because she claims that she "hates Brittany for being smelly and lazy" even though everyone else including herself bathe the same amount of times and being fat doesn't correlate with reeking or being unmotivated. Also, have you been living as the mob character, as yourself, since before you remembered your previous life, or did your new memories make you? Make up your mind and decide who to blame already unless you have some variant personality disorder. It's creepy to refer to yourself in third person like an unrelated party when criticizing your body and then sometimes in first person when taking credit for pretending to be innovative and smart.

Ascendance of a Bookworm
April 26, 2017
Status: c51
The title is so inaccurate that it's laughable. It should be closer to the Ascendance of a Stupid B**ch? It's questionable whether the idiot that has assumed the unrightful control of someone else's body was really an adult in university in their previous life or just a two year old pretending to be. And she thinks she's cute. Ew.

Spoiler

Her first thought when being confronted with the prospect of being in a world deprived of books is to overturn the house of all its possessions and to then throw a tantrum to the point of falling unconscious from fatigue once she finds nothing in her surroundings but the mess of her own creation.

She cares nothing for her own family's state of uncleanliness or of educating them about it all while expecting her sister (slave) to pamper her as the only civilized, well-kept one and monopolizing both the household's resources and the useless knowledge that she has of her first life. She thinks she's being magnanimous when lets her sister wash her hair with shampoo after she finishes and the water has been muddled from the grime of her own lol.

She has voyeuristic tendencies towards her sister's child romance and gets flustered like a pedophile over a five year old smelling her hair. Since when has being reincarnated into the body of a little kid equated to inheriting the romantic interest for one? She demands immediate ownership of the first materials (pen and paper) she finds at her father's workplace without questioning its origins or the reason that they are being denied to her. She even forgets that she herself does not yet know how to read or write the new language, and that there is no one suitable to teach her.

She chooses to be a further embarrassment to humanity and harasses her father in front of his coworker with her incessant whining while forgetting the prevalent case of illiteracy and poverty that is plaguing their society. It doesn't take much know the implications that a scarcity of products would present but the MC is incapable of even that common sense. What kind of books has she so obviously lied about being well-read in? "Psychology, religion, history, geography, educations, folklore, mathematics, physics, geology, chemistry, biology, art, fitness, language, fiction..." Does she mean that she studied the art of being utterly delusional and insatiable in her contagious, ever crippling stupidity? Is she a real bookworm when she has rarely if at all mentioned the titles from the previous world? She very well excels, at least, in making a show of the maturity that she, among a multitude of other virtues, doesn't realize that she devastatingly lacks.

I can't really tell if this is supposed to be a parody, with its (poorly) played out self aware cliches, just that, parodys are supposed to be funny, right...? I don't know what I was expecting with the author's pen name being Sakamoto666... what with the author also having previously plagiarized another WN, don't expect much at all.
