I liked it at first but it slowly got annoying. The MC kept helping other characters who later on started bothering her. If she makes friends, instead of them leeching off her, shouldn't they be like comrades? I feel like the story would have been so much better if the people she met joined her party and became trustworthy people. Instead, people approach her for her knowledge, skills, or cooking, and end up being a nuisance. For example Collie at first, seemed pretty logical, but later she started saying "oh... more>> I was following you so I should get your loot too right?" There was also Lily and her sister, they never really helped her and only brought her trouble. For example, the chef situation. But despite all the trouble Lily gave her, the MC still cooked for her. The story also kept emphasizing her power and beauty it was kinda cringy. (P.S. It's gender-bend, she was previously a man. Some people don't read the subtags, aka me, and yeah. I don't mind gender-bend, I was just surprised. The one thing I liked about the novel is how realistic the MC was when dealing with her gender. She knew she was previously a man, but she doesn't disregard her present identity as Ren, a female. Instead, she merges her knowledge from both her lives and continues to live on as Ren rather than whoever she was before. <<less

Don't know why there are so many negative reviews, but the story is good. The FMC have more balls than those other isekai doormats who talk about killing is bad, this MC similar to how ordinary people behave, she doesn't care if the whole town destroying by a monster because it's not her problem and she only helps if it involves someone close to her. It's better than that doormat Japanese MC who say killing is bad and need to help others. Here she doesn't even give an Sh*t children... more>> look at her when she eats, she just ignores them and minds her own job. That's how people do things in real work they don't help others unless some other take initiative.

Everyone has their own taste, so just read it till she goes to the town and if you don't like it, just stop.

Also, those sweet moments with

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

You enjoy pedophilia, s*upidity and cooking? Then this novel is for you. Maybe in your life you're someone of average skill who toils away thanklessly for the sake of others. With this wish fulfilment fantasy you can get a taste of what it's like to be a genius, everything coming your way easily, and still toiling away thanklessly for the sake of others. Or maybe you are actually a very assertive person who wish they could be a doormat.

1) Pedophilia: The MC is 1m40 tall, 11 years old, has enormous... more>> boobs and her tremendous s*x appeal is one of the main plot points. It's such a problem that she can't show her face in public without every male literally drooling, sometime going as far as plotting to r*pe her. It's so crippling that no man can remain functional while interacting with her unless she's hiding her face. In their defense, it seems that her figure is very mature for her age and everyone thinks she's about 15 when they see her, which is... marginally better?

2) Moronic MC: Quite simply, the MC is totally incapable of understanding the link between an action and its consequences. Randomly distribute priceless items to people and then be surprised that you attracted unwanted attention...
No drive. The MC only motivation is to "avoid troublesome matters". She won't ever be proactive in doing anything except caving in to the demands of people who harass her. That's boring as f*ck. I don't want to read a story about a neat who doesn't want to leave their home nor interact with anyone. You're in an amazing and strange foreign world, a little drive to adventure maybe?

3) Cooking: Or the quest to recreate japanese food in a world where no one ever considered cooking anything. After all, it's similar to the middle-ages, they didn't have any idea that ingredient could be cooked back then, did they? Nah, they must have eaten their ingredients raw. <<less

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?

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.
Spoiler

(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.")

[collapse]

Mascot Character:

MC saves some wild
Spoiler

Fenrirs

[collapse]

(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.
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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.
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

Reverse Chekov's Gun:

Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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.
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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

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.

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.

The novel has a interesting story but the MC sometimes irritate me a lot. Sometimes he is smart but sometimes he act like a idiot. Basically all the troubles he usually encounter is cause by himself. For someone who tried to be low key, he is doing a freaking terrible job at it. It frustrate me how he attract attention with his mouth and his carelessness.

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
Spoiler

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)

[collapse]

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

In general I enjoy the story, however one of the core story elements is handled so horribly that's it's become painful to read.

The core element here is the identity of the MC. The story posits that we have a fully mature adult man from present day re-incarnating into the recently deceased (and revived, common trope) body of a pre-teen orphan girl who has no knowledge outside of the orphanage she grew up in. The problem is that that the author tries to keep the original bodies identity alive and have... more>> the two people "share?" the body, this is the biggest problem with the story.

As always the detail matter, in this case the problem is that while there is only one internal identity, all the MCs actions seem to be based exclusively on either the guys mindset or the girls, never both, so it's much closer to an MC with multiple personality disorder, in the all the worst ways. This results in the MC wholeheartedly doing very logical/masculine/mature things and then in the very next paragraph suddenly doing very idiotic/feminine/childish things as if it's the most natural thing in the world. This creates a very jarring reading experience and makes it impossible for the reader to understand the MC as they keep changing back and forth.

Edit - To clarify, most of the problems don't really start until chapter ~63, so the read until then is in general enjoyable. After this point however, the problems appear to be growing even further beyond what I mentioned above, with the author seemingly just giving up on trying to explain anything and just doing random sh*t without thinking it through. It's almost feeling like the author has a second personality that just took over writing the story here...

Final edit (10/5) - I wish I could change this review to 1 star, as I'm dropping this as it's gone to absolute shit. At this point it's clear that what I thought was the MC (Reincarnated guy) no longer exists and is nothing more than a convenient knowledge module for the toxic man hating thing that abuses it. This is made even worse since the author continuously twists reasonable story settings into intensely hateful directions for no apparent reason. The MC has lost all apparent goals, direction, and worst of all, their very identity. This is nothing but a dumpster fire at this point with no redeeming aspects to it.

DO NOT RECOMMEND. <<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.

Tbh, Karsus review basically sums everything, although I don’t think it’s that bad. Almost every male character for some reason has to look at the MC in a sexual way and the food chapters (yes, there was at least one entire chapter only about food) and monologues get tiring so fast. And if they’re going to s*xualize the character, why don’t they at least make them 18 years old, is every japanese novel author a p*do?

Also, the character has no drive at all, only avoids troublesome situation.

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... 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.

Started good, like the tenth first chapters then became below tr*sh tier level, typical japanese isekai when the MC do absolutely nothing besides cooking and eating. This novel doesn't have any single selling point, no plot, child protagonist, yes-man protagonist, dumbass protagonist, annoying characters, cooking and eating based novel.

No point reading this, don't waste your time and find something interesting to read, this novel is utterly boring.

If you like other "slow life" and "I just want to live in peace even though I'm OP" type of manga, then this light novel will be a good read for you. It satisfies my guilty pleasure of slice-of-life-esque story troupes in another world while using knowledge from the previous life. The other reviews here are valid and it does get hard to read due to that but I still think its worth reading.
