  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 trash 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

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

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.

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.

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.

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
