Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I reincarnated, so what do I do?

Because I worked at a black company, I overworked to death. I want to live without working this time. But, in my previous life, I was a very ordinary guy, and I didn’t have any special skills.

At that time, I watched TV and a light bulb flashed.

With the body of a child and the head of an adult, I might be able to aim for a rise as a genius child.

In the future, I will work hard to become a NEET!

I'm a making a review because I'm the translator.

So, this novel is a light-hearted comedy that refreshes your day. It's not like your normal reincarnation novel, mainly because of it's un-seriousness, and the fact that there's no harem; the MC collects pets instead. Give this a read if you want an original, funny JP novel, or if you had a long day, and you want a break. If you want a serious novel, then go back; this isn't for you.

There's also some chapters that will give you diabetes.

Other than that,... more>> there's the fact that the translation quality is amazing. (Yes, I know that I'm thick skinned) <<less

The series is still young and a nice break away from all those fantasy and fighting stuff.

This one line in the series especially hit the core of the current web novel scene:

"Well, sometimes verbal agreements don’t work like with a certain Chinese web novel company."

Is anyone getting the reference? *Smug face*

The best part of this story is the MC is not interested in romance with either gender.

It different from the standard reincarnation novels where the MC reincarnate into a fantasy world, or into the past/future version of their world.

It great that the MC want to make enough money to live as a NEET for the rest of their life.

For the 10 chapters of this that I read, from what I can see, the author doesn't really know what pacing means. Things that could take a couple hundred pages at the very least get gleamed over within 17 pages, and things that can be gleamed over take tens of pages.

Also, this is 100% one of those webnovels where they have the "I'm a guy who got reincarnated, but I am a girl now, but don't worry this is just a tropey plot device that really won't impact the plot... more>> at all, other than the token mention every so often that is mandatory of every novel that does this"

Conclusion: If you're bored out of your mind or really don't care about quality and want to read a brain dead poorly executed slice of life novel involving a child actress, this is for you. Sorry, I can't really mention any good things about it. Everything about this webnovel has flaws and is full of holes. Cliches and tropes are sprawled around everywhere, and I just had to drop it after 10 chapters. <<less

I find this novel entertaining and interesting. I've always loved reincarnation novels and I love this one as well. A young child does he best while young to enjoy the rest of her life off of her earnings. Wonderful concept. I wish I could read more.

This story is just amazing. I hate to admit it but the MC is actually a smart, interesting, and lovable MC... it's unprecedented!

However the only gripe I have is that the author tends to make it that the MC is basically the embodiment of Aphrodite. Sure it leads to interesting events and stories, but with seducing boys still in elementary school with not even trying.... yeah that one is SERIOUSLY pushing it.

A great read regardless and I would love to see how they plan on address the issue with hormones... more>> as they dictate your Mental growth as well as who you are attracted to. <<less

Spelling errors are here and there but minor issues. The issue I'm having is the lack of updates from... the author I assume?

Anyway... relaxing pacing, lighthearted and fairly sweet, (minus the GB+Rebirth) its more or less realistic with slightly more focus on the livelihood of the character rather than her job, as the job is in its own way just... there.

The acting is Not expanded upon as it's "a means to an end" in Nana-chan's pov, its also barely a talking point for her "friends" (For the small amount... more>> she has, *sigh*), but that is likely due to the seemingly 'realistic' pace setting... which I actually enjoy as its quite... melow? Relaxing yet just fast enough to keep you entertained. I know "realistic pace setting" doesn't tell you much about what I mean, but it's the only way I could explain or get my views accross about the pacing.

As we have so little chapters in stock, we know next to nothing about nana-chan but tearfully wish for faster updates so we can!!! Her cuteness is extremely subtle and it's been a LONG 5 YEARS since I found something that has made me as interested purely in the characters development. This applies to much to many things.

Like playing a game and learning it has more than a thousand True endings, but all you wish for is not the ending compilation video, but the walkthrough to all routes instead.

Last but not least... that burn of a Qidian reference. Though "a mortals journey to immortality" had them As well, I was genuinely surprised it was in this. Fight the tyranny of the pol- CHINESE STRANGLEHOLD AND MONOPOLY OF CHINESE NOVEL/S TRANSLATIONS!!! <<less

It is kind of a boring slice of life novel most of the time so far but then again I am very picky with what slice of life I like and dislike so meh. The writing is fine but I am 8 chapters in and hardly anything interesting has happened. It is a bit too slow paced for me but some might quite enjoy it I guess...

I would give it a score of 3.5 but I rounded up to 4 because it is better then the average slice of life... more>> novel in my opinion. Though the acting segments being kind of lamely written and shortish (idk it is hard to describe) and the school segments were not my cup of tea either. Despite these somewhat negative comments I don't dislike this novel all that much overall so I would say read it if you want to read about the daily life of a man now young female child actor with very brief written depictions of her activities and not much else or like the sound of what the translator LysUltima talked about in their review.

This is my first time writing a review so sorry it if kind of sucks though the fact that I find this novel very hit or miss is also a factor of its suckiness :P <<less

To get the negatives out of the way first: The original is only being written VERY sporadically and the author has a choppy style of writing that can be off-putting. Neither is a reason not to give this one a try!

The plus sides are numerous: The MC is genuinely interesting, the situations and writing are amusing, and there is ZERO smut. Not that I don't mind some of that, but it would be inappropriate for this story and detract from the humor. The difference between how the MC sees herself... more>> and the rest of the world sees her provides endless amusement as well (much like in Youjo Senki). I also love how the MC throws herself into her new life without a ton of angsty baggage (again, that can be okay just not here) but her POV is definitely of an 30-ish man rather than a prepubescent girl.

I sincerely hope the author continues the story because 23 chapters isn't NEARLY enough! <<less
