Due to an accident, half of Kagami Keina’s body was paralyzed. One day, because of a power outage she regrettably died, but just before that she was moved to the world of the online game she was playing. When woke up, she was in the game, moreover it was 200 years in the future?

Well for the time being, in order to survive I should probably do something.

In the world that was a video game, who stands in the way of the fumbling girl making her way through!?

Status: epilogue
One of the first web novels I had ever read.

Innovation: 4/5

As a pretty old novel as far as syosetsu goes, it predates a lot of the other "game-turned-reality" novels. As a consequence it doesn't seem to do anything particularly innovative with the genre, being one of the pioneers itself.

... more>> Characters: 3/5

The protagonist, Keina, sort of just chills out in a village until stuff happens and she adopts a daughter. Who she spoils and dotes on immensely. Given the short time-frame they've known each other it is difficult to believe that the relationship is much deeper than simply feeling sorry for a random orphan.
Additionally, Keina's interaction with her NPC "children" from back when it was a game is for the most part an unending recurring gag that isn't particularly funny.
Finally, the second most important character to the story only appears late in the game, and they are difficult to treat as a real person because of their oddities.

Story: 2/5

The story seems mellow and mediocre for the majority of its run, but close to the end strange revelations come out of nowhere that seem like complete ass-pulls. Worse yet, these revelations are tied deeply into the existence of the world and the whole mystery behind what set off the plot.

To be fair, a lot of what seem to be complete ass-pulls are in fact mechanics known to the world at large in the author's previous novel. But on the other hand, that novel was dropped midway so you can't expect anybody to have read it, and worse yet there was never any indication or mention by the characters of THIS novel that these mechanics were even around. <<less
