This novel is awful. The only thing I liked is the cover illustration.

Starts normally, an average guy gets reincarnated into another world as a peerless beauty who's OP. Kills a few lecherous bandits and goes to the city to start an inn. There, she finds out that you need to be a B class adventurer to start an inn, so a test for the adventurer has to be given.

And what happens after she finds out about this? A time skip. Next chapter, she has already started an inn which... more>> even the King visits. Dafuq?!! Details of her adventures? Difficulties when setting up an inn? People she met as an adventurer? NOTHING!! Author, you skipped like 2 volumes of material!!

I decided to ignore this and continue reading. I regret it doing so. So many faults. In one chapter, her inn is small and lacks soundproofing. She complains how she doesn't have the time to make a magic item to solve the sound proofing. And right in the next chapter, she cleans the inn with super sonic speed and explains that the inn won't get damaged even if she bangs into something while moving at that speed, because her inn is special, it's made of OP material and the inns value would be equal to a small country. If your inn is so amazing... why does it not have soundproofing?!! Also, you clean the inn using super sonic speed, but it takes one hour to clean it, not even including the rooms where guests are in? Wow. Is she cleaning the inn with a toothbrush?

Plenty of other faults lying all over as well. For example, the MC's stats make her the strongest person in that world. But she's only used her ability twice, both times to deal with people who wanted her body. Author doesn't have any other ideas? And I don't understand why the MC is so rigid. Forcing the customers who eat there to say Itadakismasu and Gochisousama before and after meals, and actually kicking out customers who forget to do so, including the King, but no one minds that... ugh. I can't read this anymore. <<less

I think it is written to be... Cute? Nope, always happens with cutesy Japanese novels.

Hard to get into something that sounds like a mom baby-talking to her child. Not my cup of reincarnated as a woman from an otaku man with cheat abilities-tea.

After reading the currently translated chapters (ch1&2), this seems like it should be a rather amusing story. The first time I have seen this particular reason for the/a God to offer some choices about what happens next, them being dead now. I hope someone translates a few more chapters.

Saying that, I dislike/hate these kinds of, ' "OhshitIF*ckedUp tehepero" Gods'.

On a side note, this was the first time I've seen this and was amused by it and it's use in the story. (^^) V

f*cking terrible. Huge time skips. In order to set up the inn, which is literally in the f*cking name of the story, you need to take a test to be a powerful adventurer, first of all, why? Not explained. Secondly, show us your adventures and test not a huge time skip. Thirdly, the common sense, even if there is magic, is so f*cking illogical it gives autism. Fourthly, the translation quality is so f*cking terrible during the start that it felt like it was translated on Google translate. It wasn't... more>> even edited to make it smooth. I understand if the TL isn't good with English, but he could get a f*cking editor. I could do better with some Japanese Machine translators out there and 20 or 30 minutes of editing. Seriously. If you wanna read this... Just don't, it's not worth your time, nor is it mine. I bet that you, the one reading this, could write a f*cking essay about ants and make it better than this junk. <<less

To summary this novel, its just typical isekai, a cheat like ability but the MC choose to live peacefully, well I do agree the title and description is realy interesting. But after read it, it just really biased and confusing story. But man, those first chapter is really..... Like "hey, I'm God.... and sorry you're dead... because of my fault... but your death had been writen in the book of life since begin with, so its not like mine fault.... lol" and its like "kay you're dead, lets ressurect you... more>> in different world.... and I give you cheat, so donas you like... lol" and the MC is like "oh waow I'm dead... lol, I want to live again as a girl plz..... lol" <<less

Sorry, if you are looking forward to a good light hearted Japanese novel then this isn't one of them. The translation was... okay. It is readable but was very confusing. The author uses time skip for a lot of things. And the MC him/herself feels far too 2D- dimensional. Her personality isn't even as 2 D as an anime character. Is was very flat. The only good thing about this novel was the world it is in. Even then, I barely gets what this world is made off because the... more>> translation was very confusing. <<less

basically the story starts off strong then by chapter 3 story is gone and it turns into a comedy slice of life about a op person running a hotel and nothing happens for the rest of the chapters.

The grammar is terrible, whoever translated it was so lazy a few chapters seemed to come straight from google translate

god aweful dont read

The story is too cliche and the story progression was not what I expected it to be. The only thing noteworthy is the cover illustration but the contents are cringey

This novel is an isekai cheat with less action and more light-hearted, comedy story (Good for stressed peeps). The take of having the main chara as an inn keeper is unique and as I'm an isekai junkie I like the new concept.

At first the time line is confusing, the introduction is quick and shuffled about. The author looked like he didn't really know how to start, to start from getting Isekaid (reincarnated and such) or halfway through the novel and have a flash back. Should I say it's more like... more>> a very big and confusing time skip at the start, but later on it gets better as it becomes what it's suppose to be, a light-hearted isekai.

Well... final opinion is... you should read it if your more of a relax isekai guy/want some break from the intense isekai. The author is not that skilled, but I luv the stories. Welp, your choice anyway. I enjoyed it :I <<less

This novel seems to take an easy going kind of approach to the reincarnation genre. After the first few chapters you dont see much action per say? I suppose it was a nice change of pace, so I didnt have much to complain about. But if you want to see monsters, fighting, or adventure you should look elsewhere.
This one only has a mix between fantasy, and everyday life.

I actaully rather enjoyed to be honest, but it seems to be an aquired taste if you read the reviews above...

So remember... more>> to read it yourself before just following the others opinions on this one. Who knows, you may just like it? <<less

The translation is readable (though I need some guessing works to read it). Please don't expect high-quality translation or even worse, bashing the translator on its blog. Just be grateful that someone picked this project.

As there are only two chapters translated, I can't give any in depth explanation. The MC was a man, dead because Sue Primgott the Supreme God, she made a mistake (what a template). He was given the opportunity to pick a cheat, and yet he chose to become a girl. He only wanted to become a normal girl, yet somehow Sue become too excited and after one serious contemplating session (which was about three minutes), she gave her (previously 'him') multiple cheat skills.

Yea, what a template; I know. I just want to read a relaxing story, so I'll put this series on my reading list. **shrug**

It starts out okay but after it gets to the current translator, the grammar goes to hell. It literally becomes intolerably bad. Get an editor ffs.

The name inconsistency is absolutely horrible, even across all of the translators. It suddenly switches Kail to Kyle and Ririka to Lyrica. Even the MC's name gets cumberbatched, having been published with names like Carl/Karla/Carla. Not the worst but it's still very annoying.

Otherwise it's a decent slice-of-life with an OP MC. She gets what she wants almost effortlessly, so if you just want a light... more>> wish-fulfillment read with progressively worse grammar, this is it. <<less

Starts out reasonably well, and a couple of obstacles are placed into the MC's way, including just as a consequence from changing s*x upon transmigrating, but for some reason all of the problems that have to be solved and that could make the novel interesting in any way are simply skipped. Made an acquaintaince at the gate and in the adventurer's guild? Doesn't matter, a chapter later she already has an inn and is serving the king.

Rather than making use of the cheats that have been described at the start... more>> of the novel, new aspects of them are used to immediately solve all issues. Yeast takes 12 hours to rise? Well, you could just prepare the bread early because it's going to sell out anyway because you claim that there's literally nobody else using yeast and thus all the other bread sucks. Nope, have to make the bread only when ordered for some reason and invent a time spell to speed things up.

The concept of the story would have worked, but this novel is just incredibly poorly written.

On another note, the translators' sites look horrible and make it a pain to read, and the translation quality is meagre. <<less

the story translated with zenith novel while lacking in editing is possible to understand and enjoy.

Really the story up to the last chapter of this translator is not all that bad to read and yes I know that it is not an action packed novel but that a genre in itself...

anyway this is mostly a comedic story of the most op reincarnator id tie it up with death march even in this case but I don't know the full scale still the MC is strong enough to beat the god... more>> of the world he live in die ten time over and more.

the translation from mak 5 well that literally not English sentence are comprehensible if you really know English and force it but they aren't enjoyable at all just don't give yourself such hardship for no reason... <<less

the explanation at the beginning of the story is enough to disturb the storyline (in my opinion). at least make like a side story or a particular chapter for that explanation (not in main story)

The story itself, How to explain it.... It feels like there's still something missing in the story.

The author make it looks like the MC have whatever he needs (– –) =3

I can't do it. It's the early translations that make my head spin. One or two errors is fine, a few more make me say they should get a beta reader or an editor.

But pages full of mistakes? It takes me out of the story and flings me to the far reaches of reality.

I would normally like and read this story again and again, but not with this translation. I hope someone good picks this up one day.
