It isn't pretty bad. It's quite average to be honest. The MC doesn't really have a specific goal, she just doesn't want to be sold as a s*ave.

If the MC was male its practically your normal isekai novel. The MC doesnt have much common sense, she's beautiful, and a good cook.

It's a "heartwarming" story that you just read for fun because there is yuri and isekai!

I rate it quite average. It's your typical feel good isekai LN so far, the protagonist has a cheat and overpowered, nothing bad, nothing new and exciting. If you're a avid isekai consumer, well go ahead.

It falls into the trap of 'cooking syndrome' which is common in isekai, but I can't deny it, I like my food. The typical 'modern knowledge' flick is also there, (RIP common sense-chan) the people in this world are blown away, etc, nothing too exciting. As it's also a genderbend it does dwell on... more>> it, but doesn't have a very memorable impact yet, except for the LEWD bits, which I support.

It's pretty average, however the protagonist personality is quite unique (from most isekai protags), this adds a little bit of spice, to your average isekai. This personality controls her interacions with others giving senarios which keeps the readers glued.

Overall pretty solid LN. <<less

A fairly typical story about a Japanese guy reincarnated as a 10 year old orphan girl. She ends up living a hermit life in a forest for a year and awakens to her cheat magic, which is mostly of the super easy production system where creation magic can somehow make stuff as it levels up.

High points are that she can say no and leave for another town if people bother her. Also has two Fenrir pets, a mom and pup, which are more combat force than fluff. She also behaves... more>> in a reasonable manner for some boring adult that was reborn in a fantasy world, so this doesn't suffer as much from typical JP MC syndrome.

The turnoff for most will likely be mentions of her masturbating off-screen out of boredom, which has the tangible effect of giving her skills that boost her looks. She's also very banzai Japanese culture, particularly food and bathing, although neither have been overdone yet.

RAWS: https://ncode (dot) syosetu (dot) com/n4736dz/

Chapter 25-119 update: story remains solid, with somewhat annoying food craze bits, and the overall plot seems to be avoiding being entangled by nobles while maintaining her relationships with decent people. <<less

Just like ValorPhoenix is saying, The MC is not your typical "I don't kill people because it's bad, and being a brain-dead person." She is a very straightforward character. If things are annoying she either solves it or leaves it. Also, most of the story consist of her gathering ingredients, cooking, and complaining for not finding a suitable place to masturbate (Well, it's very rare for the masturbate part to happen so ignore it) which I don't find it unreasonable. A 30 years-old man turning into a woman would wanna... more>> find out how it feels to do it unlike most Japanese MC which they would say something such as "I am a former Japanese, so I will not do it because of reason " which is BS. And this is one of the reason why I hate most of the stories because it is just so cringe. (Hell, I don't believe every Japanese doesn't masturbate daily or have a fixed schedule to do it.) <<less

Not bad, But not that good either.

It is a wish fulfillment story with not much grip on the reader. Suddenly in one chapter (4 or 5) MC becomes OP, without any hardships just poof all the skills needed becomes available and used just like that with no story, it just happens because author says so in a brief explanation that she used... skill, she made..., and so on.

I don't like these kind of stories.

Some reviewers mentioned the MC as sleazy, even though the author didn't have that in the story. The MC is supposed to be slightly lazy and uncaring. They're calling the MC sleazy just because of her gender in past life being male. Would you like it if someone called your 5 year old son sleazy, just because he's a boy? Don't be such a moron.

The story is okay-ish, it's SoL through and through. The yuri is barely there, but it's fine.

well i’m glad I went to read the novel after discovering the manga
that way...I now know to expect nothing of the manga if it follows the novel
Don’t get me wrong, there’s some great things involving "wolves", or caring for orphan childrens, some cute things too with a couple of cute girls and stuff... But the writing’s absolute tr*sh.
The MC is a dumb hypocrite half assedly kind, bimbo ST, literally. There’s almost nothing of the 30+ yo adult man, asside from his virgin, dirty minded, and absolute lack... more>> of social skills, OH, and lazyness too or the “i don’t want to bother/be bothered” Even to the point of not saving people when it would cost him/her ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, and even start helping and then goin "yeah nope sorry can't help more than that, f off".
No maturity, no reflection, no comon sense, nothing. The MC help someone without thinking of repercutions and then get offended when people ask for more help.
He’s unable to even properly tell someone off, and instead just ignore/avoid the people/issues/topics and basically goes “yeah no bye” to any sort of approach. Inevitably, people either get missled, or just don’t properly get the point, and keep insisting.
It also doesn’t help, that there’s a CHARM stat, wich is briefly mentionned at the start, raised by the dirty minded MC’s actions, wich obviously has an effect on people, yet isn’t being explained at all.

Now onward to the side and tertiary cast, victim of the author’s tr*shy writing, as they’re made into “horrible people” when they’re really, not that bad, asside LITERALLY a couple ones. It doesn’t help that the readers are either straight up dumb brainless edgy pricks, or just forgot their brain somewhere. Like, main exemple from "actual" start of the story

1: “The family are ungratefull tr*shes for selling the potions, and therefore their benefactor” (general impression of readers)
The mother was healed, and had no uses for some sort of tonic she didn’t really understand the use for, rather what was needed in their current situations was things like food, tools, maybe even clothes, all things wich she need money for. She even used some of that same food to offer a departure “feast” to her childrens.

There's also 2: “he kept going back everyday bothering her!!! boooo!”

The dude, had his older brother and lover, dying of a dicease, so naturally he clinged on the only sliver of hope he had, the egoistical lazy tr*sh MC, and went to beg her everydays untill she accepted to help one "last" time (he even thanked her later and gave some food from the family's food storage)


all in all, a somewhat good read, if your turn off your brain, and ignore all the s*upidities of people. <<less

Like most Isekai, this one starts off strong with a good setup that it proceeds to waste in execution due to poor planning or attention to detail. Don't expect anything more than your average Isekai.

Common LN Tropes in this story:

"I just want to Peacefully live a Peaceful Life... Peacefully":

MC lacks any drive or desire to do anything but live, but due to the precious little danger to her life, OP skills, etc, along with the author not setting up any plot tools to encourage to MC to push themselves to... more>> do anything. This leads to the plot slowing to stagnation and all the MC's activities tending to be fairly shallow and boring.

(Ex: "I'm living in a world full magic so I'll master blacksmithing so I can make a magic sword so I can have one.")


Mascot Character:

MC saves some wild



(Insert LN Name Here) is a Cooking Novel:

Expect LOTS of extremely long food tangents that distract from the story and many times DIRECT the story. Feel free to skip over them if that's not your thing. You aren't missing anything if you aren't planning to cook this stuff yourself.

"It can't be helped...":

What the MC says when they reluctantly proceed to do something that is not obligatory or their own responsibility, often for some random person they just met. Played up to show how generous the MC is. Usually leads to the MC doing FAR MORE than required, giving away her own secrets, gathering attention that the MC herself doesn't want, and resulting in trouble for herself down the line. If MC sees anyone come into a slight amount of inconvenience, expect to see this.

Secondary Character Boosting:

MC often teaches, cooks for, and provides aid to kids that randomly decide to follow her around. Often with no obligation on her part.

MC eventually meets kids from her former orphanage. This leads to dozens of chapters of her cooking for, making gear for, teaching literacy, and training them so they can survive. Though not set in stone yet, it can be expected that those orphanage kids will shadow her around from now on, meaning she will continue boosting them instead of moving her own plans forward throughout the rest of the story. IMO extended use of this tends to make the story boring due to impedes progress and covering previously tread ground.


Gender Bender Gimmick:

MC kept her memories of being a male in a previous life to justify why she's not into guys as well as she's turned on by her own body.

This led to an interesting character quirk that led to her gaining perverse skills, but eventually the whole idea is forgotten until it becomes necessary for the MC to remind the reader why she's not attracted to males. Otherwise, this gimmick has no reason to exist in the story.


Reverse Chekov's Gun:


Early on, the MC checks her status, she finds out she's NOT human, but actually from a Celestian race. This could've been used to set up an explanation for her fast skill growth and creation magic, as well as set up her backstory and give the plot a direction. (Examples include combating an enemy force that seeks out Celestians to capture them for their abilities in order to dominate the world or the MC seeking out other Celestians to find out who she truly is and some special role she has to fulfill for the sake of the world) Too bad she doesn't seem to care about this as well as the author because after over 100 chapters into the story, it's never brought up again. A completely unused plot point.


Master Everything because we can!:

The MC falls into the sin of attempting to be a jack of all trades by mastering various random skills; some acceptable to improve her quality of life or battle potential, others, completely irrational or redundant.

At the beginning, she's a potion master, then she focuses on normal offense magic, then she focuses on gun magic and throwing knives, then she focuses on cooking, and lately, she's focusing on mastering blacksmithing so she can create not a magic staff for her magic, but a magic sword... even though she always fights from a distance. (By the way, MC isn't old enough to legally accept hunting or extermination quests from the adventure guild, as well as she herself seeming uninterested in combat herself. Your guess for why she wants a sword is probably better than mine.


Unless the author decides to address some of the points the set up for themselves at the beginning of the story to create a plot, this story is already over as there's no real long-term problem for the MC to resolve besides looking for food ingredients to cook with when her supply gets low. <<less

It was a (kinda) cute story about a girl living in the woods and making do with her magic for about 10ish chapters until she left and randomly decided to become an adventurer despite seeming to enjoy her hermit life. Then once she got to town the entire world started to revolve around her, everywhere she goes everyone's eyes are constantly on her, she's so beatiful that she must wear a hood constantly or else everyone around will be first dazed by her beaty before talking at audible volumes about... more>> how incresibly beatiful she is, she goes to collect herbs once and gets enough to hand in for 200 days whilst breaking records every day on the amount she hands in, she goes to a blacksmith but the things she made out in the woods with no materials are better than his masterpieces and of course her cooking is the best this world has ever seen even when she puts in no effort, thank god for japanese sandwiches she's really showing these unwashed natives what's what. <<less

Every human character so far besides the MC exists purely to be an annoyance. The MC also constantly gets into problems that wouldn't exist if she was slightly more careful or assertive. The author frequently goes off into uninteresting tangents. I wouldn't call this a bad story but so far it's been mostly unpleasant to read.

Started out pretty interesting, though not really anything new. Then it transformed to just another cooking story, with little to no interest in the characters of the story. Simply focusing on the MC's inner cooking monologue, ingredients and a simple reaction to the food.

Why does every single isekai author have a food fetish?

So far a great story that can be changed easily in many ways, by that I mean that with the MC's current situation of the spot I'm reading in the story is that anything can happen because of her flexible powers and situation with no ties to the place she is staying at.

Seems like it will become a great story and has tons of potential, also is a very fun read for now and I really enjoy it.

The only problem I am seeing is the masturbation scenes but it seems... more>> like they will be rare and somehow tied into the story.

I hate slice of life stories, but this seems to be a slight exception since I'm a fan of gender benders. <<less

So... yeah. It's basically an OP chara living her leisure life, following the Slice of Life genre through and through.

Just like SoL genre, it got trapped in the same ‘non-plot’ problem. The saving aspect of this series is in MC's personality; she's definitely not a “seigi no mikata”-type and instead an “I saved you because I feel like doing it”-type of MC. Even when someone is in perilous situation, she can just ignore them because she's unrelated to their trouble, and she has no conscience to even feel guilty about... more>> it... oh maybe she does, but it's only to the point of “My bad.

I like the story so far.

It does have some typical Japanese elements like the MC being a Japanese food cook and lover, but aren't we all spoiled rotten when it comes to FOOD?

About the MC trying to live peacefully and failing because she has a working conscience... No, I don't think I need to comment further.

Her denial of the reason she acts and the clearly false excuses given are typical for both first person point of view and young children. Remember she is an 11 year old girl even if... more>> she has some of the memories of a 30 year old man.

Thankfully the translator provides us with a 3rd person point of view translation.

The MC randomly exploring her abilities to make whatever can provide her with more luxury or catches her attention... I would do the same, <<less

For whatever reason, the author gave the MC the body of a sexy 21 year old... But despite that, she is 11 years old. Don't believe me on her looks? Look at the light novel illustrations. Surprisingly, there's already a Manga for this LN. I recommend to look at the illustrations there.

I'll never understand what the author is thinking, but I digress. This IS a Japanese author, so there is bound to be some level of degeneracy in here.

So far, the MC isn't a pushover, and does what is necessary.... more>> However, they barely have a motive, because all they want is "a quiet life". <<less

Stop me if you've read this one before. Sleazy/loner 30 year old guy gets reincarnated as a young girl in I Can't Believe Its Not DragonQuest. Said MC starts out battered and bruised with no power but starts with a few 'cheat' skills and can acquire new JRPG skills faster than usual. After establishing himself, MC interacts with the world with a unique worldview that mostly just boils down to "I don't want to get involved, but end up getting involved anyway".

As of chapter 22, this series doesn't seem to... more>> do anything to differentiate itself. It takes the few interesting unique ideas in the premise and grinds them away into isekai paste in short order. About the only thing notably different are several sections that are prime /r/menwritingwomen territory. As somebody who interacts regularly with japanese culture, I'm absolutely no stranger to 'creepy undertones with women and underage girls' but uh- this one has some choice bits.

I'm still curious enough about this one to check back in a couple years from now, but at this point its not something I can recommend. <<less

I feel that the MC keeps getting into easily avoidable problems in the story because she is too careless with who she confides in, leaving her gadgets and things for others to get greedy for. After they find out, she goes and uses the typical MC excuse of "Can't be helped", And asks herself why she's in the problem she set up for herself.

So first and foremost for simplicities sake, I’d state this story is a middle ground between “ Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill " and “I said make my abilities average!”

The story is more a slice of life then anything, the MC is overpowered. There’s a bit more lewd then I’d expect but nothing too smutty. And a heavy focus on cooking and convenience. That said outside of the first few chapters the story is generally light and fluffy. Nothing to lose your mind over but a... more>> nice read none the less. <<less
