When I reviews, it's either short or long. But when it really triggers me, I am saying it frontally and as bold as possible.

This Thing, I'll say "unbearable" to read. So, be wary that the translator decided that they had to add some extras including very tough weebish translation of it.

If you managed to agree or pass with that part then be wary that Yuri tag doesn't exist. You can't even barely call it a Shoujo AI. Why? Because I am struggling to find anything related to it for the... more>> first 10 chapters without getting thrown into random characters talking nonsense and tons of unnecessary alchemy that honestly can be shortened unless you suck up to atelier shenanigans. Maybe because it's WN and that is acceptable but really unreasonable to have like 6-8 pages of text and all of it were about alchemy.

Then I do not understand, where the hell the harem tag came from unless they wanted to tag every males included and every females that MC met into falling love or even confessing to them. Which isn't exactly what's happening. At all. This is like wrong in so many level, you do not add Yuri tag when there's mixed romance on the harem. This is not drama or romance either so what exactly is the point of it?

The story is incoherent, hard to follow without getting showered by alchemy on almost every chapter (reduce much later), side or background characters talks too much, some nonsense twit of rumour neet which reminds me of Bofuri. Which is a shame because it was a wasted potential.

I can't see myself picking this back anytime soon,

And IMO maybe I'll wait for an LN translation instead of WN which normally already edited and cut where the part should be avoided. The tag I mentioned may apply on later untranslated chapter but so far? Nope.

In conclusion you'll either like it or hate it. But most of the part unless you're a suckers for gender bender and Atelier this is your food. For Yuri GB fans? No, skip it or just wait for it. Although you can read it if you want to and see it for yourself what I am talking about.

If you want to talk about it or spoil some stuff for me here's my discord Xaelath#2315. I am welcoming you in an open hand. <<less

Very rough translation, generic VRMMO tropes, interesting IRL spin.

Basically it's worth the read if you can stand the usual MTL roughness and the cultural disconnect.

MC shows in spades the "I must never be a burden to my family" culture aspect of many East Asian countries that would be labeled "toxic masculinity" by some circles in the west. It's the seemingly bizarre obsession with appearing strong to the point you make everything worse.

Like the family's breadwinner not telling anyone they have stage 4 cancer when they've known for over a year... more>> it was terminal (Actual family situation of a guy I knew in college).

It's such a niche part of the culture that anyone who didn't grow up on it sees it as monumentally s*upid.

In this specific case MC decided not to tell anyone who should have been told that he's #7 of the mysterious body swapping disease. He doesn't tell his sister who by all rights deserves to know. Doesn't tell the government that any IDs he has are now invalid, the health professionals trying to figure out the disease, or anyone who might actually be able to help him/her.

Why? You might ask, he/she might say pride or shame, but the real answer is simple selfish s*upidity. He/she is pointlessly making their life harder by withholding this kind of info. 2 phone calls and 80% of their crisis is over. But no, they sit there and suffer because f*ck asking for help in a situation so rare only 6 others have experienced and no one in their right mind would expect a 15 year old to deal with alone. Wouldn't want to seem like a burden on the family. <<less

  1. So after 15 Minutes of using some online japanese to english translator I think the most accurate tranlation of the titel I can get with them is " I have become a beautiful girl, but I am just a useless Netgamer". Now that less people are confused with the titel here is my review.

    Edit 3: So since I actually got better at writing reviews here is a more accurate one.

    The story is separated into two parts the real life one and the vrmmorpg one.

    Vrmmorpg part Rating 2/5 (or 3/5 for certified isekai tr*sh like me). This part of the story is the worst since there is literally nothing new that you haven't seen in other isekai novels (Really the first part is nearly identical to Only Sense Online) So if you had red other similar novels this will bore you to death. Our protagonist after being gender bent plays a game where you can't play as the opposit gender takes a skill that is thought to be useless and becomes super good at it. Since he became a beautiful girl he/she gains a massive following that literally worships him/her as a godess.

    And here the part of the novel that is actually good. The real live one. I would rate that part a solid 5/5. While the first chapter has a very bad part that I would recommend to skip it actually manages to give an acurate representation of the character relationships and that trend continues as most of the RL chapters are used to establish the relationships between the characters. The problem here is in the beginning there are very few RL chapters and only after about 80 chapters more RL parts are included. That normaly wouldn't have been a problem if the entire story of this novel didn't revolve around the RL part and even then the story only makes much progress after about 80 chapters of the Vrmmo part. It is like the author had a really good idea what he could do with a Vrmmo novel but since he already wrote a mediocre one he simply slapped it onto that one instead of writing a new one and let both parts progress side by side.

    So overall I can say I came for Vrmmo + gender bender and stayed for the interessting concept of the RL part in the later chapter

    The overall rating would be 4/5 but as no one would bother waiting till the later chapters of the novel if the rating dropped any further it gets a 5/5

Very comfy story, but my only gripe is how the MC does not want to confess their gender-bender scenario to their own sister.

With the way how the author describes their relationship, you would think the older sister is more than qualified to handle the truth bomb. But nope, the author writes the MC to have ptsd when it comes to confessing.

To make it worse, its justified by the MC that s/he should avoid help altogether because they will be a burden for the sister.

If what you are looking for is a mix of "Slice of Life" and "Adventure" with a nekama (?) MC this might be the WN for you.

If you are looking for actual "Romance" or "Comedy" then you should probably be looking somewhere else...

Now for the actual review (as of c200) :

... more>> As the title says we got a MC who turned into a beautiful girl (read: loli) but became a net game addict.

First chapter could give the impression that this might be turning into some sort of romcom but for further development of the story (at least until c200) MC's crush might aswell not exist.

As you might have figured out from the MC turining into a girl thing, the RL part of the story is not that much on the scientific side. The genre of this WN should be "Contemporary Fantasy" even though it might not seem as such at first.

The MC spends most of his/her time online. We get the MC-doing-unusual-build-which-turns-out-to-be-OP-somehow pattern. We mostly get the MC exploring the virtual world (and sometimes the real world) in a kind of mypace style. VR world parts can be kind of bland as they tend to drag on longer then they should sometimes (though that might just be my impression as I have read similar things already). The Real world part is really interesting with lots of changes happening and how all that might or might not relate to the MC (have not read anything similar to that).

Some things that might turn you off though:

-The lolicon virus seems to have infected wide numbers of the population (MC fan club can be annoying)

-Author increased the main cast too much => characters other than MC not getting much "screen time"

-MC's intelligence should be like ~6 times that of an average person and MC is still acting like that... <<less

Gender bending stories like this still feels pointless, at least the author put in a reason why our protagonist is female in real life and as a game avatar. The VRMMO doesn't allow opposite gender avatars for some reason. And and a gender changing disease. So if you're looking for a complex story that may involve gender and body issues. This is the absolute worst story for you, go away. Authors don't put in effort for these things. 1/2 prince absolutely does this better.

Anyway current chapters aren't enough to make... more>> a valid point right now. But the translator says chapter 8 is when is really starts going/gets good. Wow that's such a turn off point, anyway there are images throughout the chapters so at least there's some variety.

Alchemy stuff though, it's fine. Again traditional this class sucks and no one plays it except for main character etc. Which is lame. <<less

Okay, you might be tempted to drop this very soon, but just wait.

The Isekai like RPG game is... Kinda cringy and not very fun. 2/5.

However, the best bit is the real life bits. Those bit is what kept me going.

... more>> This novel is like one of those "90% okay, 10% amazing" novels. With the tr*sh bits being bad but not bad enough for you to drop, and the rest being "HOLY sh*t THIS IS FUN".

The first chapter I just kinda skimmed through but I could tell it's boring af. So just skip that if you'd like.

I totally rate this a 4.5/5. I don't really like the MMORPG parts and that nearly made me drop it half way through. However unlike most novels the 10% good bits are like a magnet that stuck me to the novel. I know it's bad, but I can't drop it until I finally read the real life parts.

Should read.

EDIT: Gonna say this again, but this novel is like a fruit bowl. If you like apples, you pick out the apples, eat (read) them carefully, and enjoy it. The other fruits you could just chew faster (skim through) so that even if you don't enjoy it, the taste won't stay in your mouth. Certain parts of this novel is my cup of tea, but sometimes it's not. Then I skim through it. This is a great way to enjoy a Fruit bowl type novel. <<less

Still early but the novel has been good so far and my only complaint would be the translator putting in random images from different anime and games. Let the readers use their own imagination. I am ok with the item icons when the character is making recipes because that can get confusing but spamming images of characters with glasses or cute fantasy girl pictures not so much.

Damn, this is good but it such a waste that it got worst. The start is pretty interesing, it's fun to read the MC exploring in alchemy system. It's also fun to read her meeting with her sister, making party with her friends while improving her skills. Same when she discover a secret in the forest.

BUT, after that it turns bad.

-Her alchemy skills evolved so fast that she got new skills which means new ways of crafting, and because of that it became overwhelming. Instead of staying on the few... more>> skills (system) the author introduced a lot.

-Useless POV of mob character about themselves. A forum board that instead of about something like the new potions appearing or the loli who's doing the alchemy, the only focus there is "I see a loli there", "Let's chase the loli".

-Cringy dialog that is out of place. Like "Who really are you?" then she replied "I am me". Or the MC is fighting and she will be asked "Is this fun?".

-Psychological tag that is not suited in the story, looks like just an additional.

There's really a lot of useless things here that better be remove. A cute girl doing alchemy in game is already fine, but the author keeps adding useless flavor to the story. <<less

Unless you have played Atelier series, you will probably have no clue why this alchemy-thing is interesting. As for myself, I only tried 1 of their game and I didn't like it. So, I will not comment on the alchemy part. But for everything else, it's your typical jp web novel, it's short, it lacks beefy explanation. The set up also pretty overused by now as I remember reading the same thing on this translator site. By the way, The way MC decides not to tell his family about it... more>> at first and insist on choosing alchemy is beyond normal human logic. And the way he not reacting to the gender change, as much as other novels, is bothering me which make it look like the author just put it there for convenience.

Excellent translation quality as always <3 <<less

... surprisingly, it's a fun read.

Pointless? Yes. Plotless? Kinda. Any fight scene? Nay. Any drama? So far, nah.

Yet personally I think it's not that bad. MC seems a bit... two dimensional, but it's not even double-digit chapter so maybe I'm wrong.

There's no notable aspect about this novel so far. Pretty relaxing story with no proper direction... definitely a slice of life, like, in its truest meaning.

__edit—:

... it's getting really weird on later chapter.

... more>>
Spoiler

The game finally started to affect the reality. MC and her friends were forced to return back their reality into the normal one by winning battles (wars), trying to resist the plot concocted by the mastermind. Everytime they won and logged out, they were returned in different timeline. On one point, MC's family become so influential they're regarded as one of the main family in the country (lol) only second to the royal household.
