Ok, this is a story about a guy who is born in a noble household in a medieval setting but, after 1 month, he was magically transported away from his home and sent into the future (basically to modern times). After spending 18 years growing up in an orphanage and graduating high school he's finally magically summoned back to his time by his parents who found a wizard to bring him back, they re-unite, , and the story starts. Well, it the process of the summoning his gender changes... more>> to that of a girl but, well, that's the risks of time traveling!

It's not every day you come across a story where the MC is summoned (or re-summoned) by his original parents. So that's something new I think, but there's problems as well, IMO. The translator does a great job, but the story is, well, I'm dropping it and all because of the MC. Firstly, why make a gender swapping character when he was already originally girly even as a boy? He doesn't go through any of the conflicts that most boys would go through if they're suddenly forced to live as girls.

Spoiler

Wearing dresses without complaint even though he never wore them before, letting the maid bathe him just because that's how noble girls have their baths done... this in itself might not sound bad in itself but keep in mind he really didn't want to, not complaining about the high heels even though he was AFRAID of tripping in those things when walking down some stairs, and etc.

[collapse]

Really, why make the MC originally a guy that then becomes a girl when his personality is already that of a, well, girl and a very passive one at that? Alice Tale did this too, what's funny or interesting about going through the added effort of making your character a gender bender if he adjusts to his new gender without any issues at all?

And then there's his personality, or lack thereof. He's passive, he's very passive, he's just so freaking passive with everyone about everything. I've already read stories about passive MCs 101 times, I'll admit I tend not to like them, but this guy takes it to a whole new level... but, ok, not everyone has a problem with passive MCs so let me mention the extent he takes it to.

Spoiler

Even though he grew up in modern times he let's his parents dictate everything to him, doesn't even stand up for himself in front of the servants like I mentioned in the spoilers, and even accepts it when his maid mentions that his parents will arrange a marriage for him in the future... even though he's mentally a man! And not gay! And spent the first 18 years of his life in modern times! This guy is a complete 100% doormat. And the worst thing is that he doesn't like some of this stuff (including the likely future arranged marriage) but the most he can do about it is lightly (yes, LIGHTLY) complain about it in his head. He's not just a beta, he's a cuck.

[collapse]

I acknowledge that part of the reason I gave such a low rating is because I hate passive MCs but he takes it to such an absurd level that I don't think I'll be the only one face-palming at this. Now, we're only 15 chapters in so we haven't seen how the MC more modern education impacts things yet, all the other characters seem to be written OK from what I can tell, and as for the MC's parents I'm actually glad they have medieval values... they're not bad people and they clearly love the MC, they just have different values. Unfortunately, the one guy in the series here with modern values is an utter doormat that's too much of a wimp to stand up for anything, so a lot of opportunities for conflict was flushed down the toilet and I see ALOT of wasted potential.

If I hear some good news regarding this series in the future then I'll take a second look. But, I'm done with this series for now. The doormat MC that never expresses a contrary opinion (outside his head) killed this series for me. I gave this 2 stars. -1 for the, IMO, unnecessary gender bending that serves no purpose other than to look cool and -2 for an MC so passive that he makes many of the standard passive Japanese MCs look like freaking alphas. Pity really, I could see myself giving this series 4 stars, potentially 5 depending on future story development, if it had a better MC. <<less

It's a bit unfortunate but this novel is pretty lackluster it started off strong having a few things to spice up the story and make it interesting but quickly throws them out the door leaving me wondering why it even had those things to begin with. The gender bending doesn't add anything to the story and leaves me wondering why it was included also the transported to another world is kinda of pointless as well the MC acts like she was a rich noble girl from a fantasy setting to... more>> begin with and not a male orphan that grew on earth. <<less

What a interesting concept with exceptional execution. We have a poor orphan boy ready to set on the world only to set into a different not as a boy but as it should of always been a young miss. It's a good story that most wouldn't want to miss.

I want morrrrrrrre 😭
I like it so much already

I didn't think I would like it since its tagged 'genderbender' but it's really different from the generic genderbender because...

Spoiler

he was born as a she so when he was transported into a different world his body went back to a girl's

[collapse]

So there isn't this feeling that her gender changing is an unfair thing because it's meant to be :)

It's funny how the themes to be explored, like affronting the medieval values from his family or the dramatical change from being an orphan boy to a sheltered girl are left untouched. Instead we get more than 15 chapters of descriptions of the mansion :/
I expect something from his/her lessons with the old man, meanwhile 2/5 is all it deserves.

This is quite an interesting story, probably the best Gender Bender I've read so far.

The main selling point of this IMO, is how the MC actually looks like someone that has been through a huge change on his to her life, being thrown into a different world with different gender all of a sudden and having to adapt to a totally new reality is quite a shock for sure, and the author does an excellent job in exploring that.

5/5 for sure, would definitely recommend for anyone that wishes to see... more>> this kind of psychological thing. <<less

So far the story isn't really all that captivating for me, it's just MC getting used to her new life. However I suspect that there'll be development in some kind of plot in the next few chapters relating to the previous world. The gender bender aspect is not really all that focused on in the WN so far, it's just MC having a few insecurities due to the change in his gender and it doesn't really talk about them in much detail.

In the future I may raise the score from... more>> 3/5 to something else if there are any interesting developments. However, at the moment I believe this is a fitting score for this novel. <<less

Ai-chan has always loved gender bender stories, they're so fun. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about this story. While the premise is fine, it suffers from one debilitating problem.

And that is... it's f**king boring!

Seriously! I can understand slow and to some extent, I can enjoy slow. This is beyond slow. The protagonist has absolutely no personality. He/she is something like "Oh, I'm in another world. Ok." and "Oh, I'm actually not an orphan. Ok." and "Oh, I'm actually a girl. Mm, ok." and "Oh I'm a rich girl. Mm,... more>> ok."

Like put some emotion into the character already! Even a sterile person who can't show emotions in front of people can be interesting, but this is completely boring. <<less

So far so good.

After finished reading chapter 4, this story seem to be a light-hearted one with a very optimistic protagonist.

Well, I still can't say anything much about this since there's still no actual plot revealed.

I'd like to start of by saying that I found this stories beginning to be quite unique which initially captured my interest.

Unfortunately I had to give this story a 2 star rating due to the fact that it has an interesting beginning, but a very uninteresting MC imo. Like some of the other reviews here I personally agree that the MC who came from a modern society such as ours, is much to passive. Things that we today would find abhorrent and would likely fight tooth and nail to prevent,... more>> (s) he simply meekly accepts.

Another reason I gave this review a 2 star rating is;

Spoiler

The people around the MC know that he came from another world, yet not one of them asks about it. Not about what it was like or anything. The only thing they learn in passing mind you, is that he grew up in a commoner lifestyle. Which doesn't tell them much at all. I mean come on... if it was me i'd be asking a million questions!

As for chapter 3... well there's not much going on but I think it has quite a potential.

There's not much Slice of Life novel with Gender Bender twist in it to begin with. So we can look forward into it in the future when more chapter is released.

For now 4/5 is suffice since I'm looking forward to the future.

Quick Review

Slow story more focused on Drama than what you'd expect from an Isekai or Gender Bending story. It's about the very passive MC coming to terms with being a daughter of a noble, learning about the world, and finding out what she should do. No action, no Isekai OP power, very plain Drama with an Isekai/Gender Bender flavour.

I'd rate it 2.5 Stars if possible.

Usually I like isekai story but this one, I don't really like it.

The MC is too weak in many place. I know the MC is a girl when he/she born but.. the way he/she act is make me wonder where the heck is his 18 years lived as boys experience??

Sorry not my cup of tea...
