Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Aihara Runa was a person who had been living in hell of misfortune. One day she found herself in a strange stage, apparently her soul was reaped without permission and sold at an auction to gods from another world along with her 28 classmates. But there was a trouble, it seems that Aihara’s soul was extremely smelly and stinky. Instead of getting a buyer, she was thrown away and with her soul in danger of disappearing.

However, when her soul was about disappear, she met an unnamed goddess who claimed herself as a god’s vessel. The goddess said that she can help Aihara to get reincarnated but with one condition, that is to bring her along and get reincarnated together. Aihara who was about disappeared accepted the goddess’ condition and got reincarnated successfully as Emmy. But apparently, the hard life still continued even after reincarnated too….

If there’s no food, then let’s get some bugs!!! Let’s just enjoy this hard life together with the reliable partner [Omake-sama] inside my head and have fun instead.

As Emmy managed to survive while watching and getting involved in the events of another cheat reincarnations, she grew into an irregular. This is a story about Emmy, a soul who managed to survive from disposal by gods. However, she doesn’t know that her reincarnation did not list in fate’s archive and unconsciously broke the gods’ scenario one after another.

I've been brooding on how to start writing this review ever since I caught up to the raws a while back.

To be honest, Omake no tensei-sha is a very close contender for my personal favourite from this genre; currently that spot is held by Two as one princesses. Now, without trying to spoil either novel too much, those of you who've read both titles know that they differ in a plethora of ways, yet, share some key traits. Namely, two souls (well, if you squint at Omake- sama hard enough... more>> that is) in one body. The desparate dance with death caressing both MC's hairs, the lack of proper nourishment due to abuse from their- for the lack of a better term to substitute biological parent - sperm donors. The rat race to acquire some form of defense to just not die before their life begins is all the same in both of these works.

The key difference lies in how each work approaches the subject of tragedy and how it moves on from it. Two as one princesses doesn't dally too long on how beaten and bruised the MC pair was in the early chapters, yet, the writing style of those early chapters gives the work a sense of direction very early on. While the "tragedy" faced by the two souls residing in the MC in Two as one princesses ends very quickly on the surface, there is a distinct sense of dread planted into the reader's mind that something's around the corner, and it isn't good.

However, in Omake no tensei-sha , the author chooses to boldly douse the reader's hopes for the MC to find happiness and mature under some proper adult supervision and correct some of her, twisted-out-of-necessity personality traits, with gasoline and sets it on fire. If you squint hard enough, you might even see the bastard laughing at his creation like he succeeded in pulling off a bad practical joke.

See, here's the thing, the MC's spirit is so broken that she takes everything in stride. Eating bugs and animals raw cause you don't have fire or proper knowledge on cooking? Sure. (P.S yeah, the MC doesn't have the godly gift of cooking here) Having no way of earning money or finding any place in human civilization 'cause the filth control the world? No prolemo. Encountering and parting with people who are genuine and don't give two shits about the racial stereotypes of this isekai? She'll cry over dinner and run along.

But every arc, every chapter, the MC is at the mercy of the world and to challenge that she grows in ways no ordinary girl can. She is strong, sure. But she's a mere six year old. Her soul may be that of the highschooler Aihara Runa, but even then, that's the mental fortitude of a juvenile. The cracks in the glass dam holding her grudges grow ever deeper as the days trickle by, and when it shatters, it'll consume all.

Now, going back to where I started talking about the writing style of Omake no tensei-sha, I omitted a key point. That is, the tone the novel uses. So far it's light-hearted. So much so, in fact that that scares me even more about the MC's mental health.

If the writing style of Two as one princesses was poignant yet subtly bleak, Omake no tensei-sha is hiding it's true colours in plain sight, waiting for the moment when everything bubbles over.

Well, if you're still reading this review after my long-winded and incoherent rambling about the novel, wondering when I'll say something about the characters, or world building or the like. Frankly speaking, as much as I want to praise those aspects, I want you, who's reading this review to discover what you like and dislike about those aspects by yourself. It'll be fun that way. In conclusion, I'm here to watch Emmy's journey, hoping her days of suffering can come to an end. <<less

At first, when I looked at the tittle, I thought that it was a boring story. However, when I tried to read the raw, I found that it's very interesting story, it feels like it was trying to deny all of the isekai novel concept so far. The tragic side and the comedy side mixed so smoothly. In the story, the protagonist was bullied but the way it delivered didn't make the story heavy and rather it made me laughed how pitiful the protagonist. Well, I don't want to make... more>> a spoiler, so it was all of my opinion from what I read from the raw, and whether it will delivered or not in english translation it will depend on the translator. <<less

This story is pretty amazing, basically. I read it up to the latest chapter in the raws, 16th arc (maybe) chapter 239 in 3 days!

Why is it pretty amazing? It's comedic and fun to read. But there are also frustrating and saddening times. The world in the story is a stage for gods to deIiver live shows of Reincarnated people which is pretty messed up to just kidnap souls for entertainment and they design scripts for them and just go decide their fate! Anyways, it's fun to read her thoughts... more>> and conversation with Omake-sama (the bonus goddess, our MC's friend) and antics that blows away common sense. By that I mean, she eats raw food and poisonous meat and plants, she learns "unusual abilities" fast to a genius degree, and she's strong that people think it's impossible for her to be a human child. And I'm not saying she's a dumb genius who does things willy-nilly and breaks everything everyone have ever known in their lives, not like THOSE kind of protagonists. She does stuff for reasons (which is mostly because she's hungry or for her survival). She has limited knowledge of the world and Omake-sama is her only source of information. She also can't easily enter civilisation. It's sad.

She lives a hard life. Our MC is most definitely a hated protagonist which makes me frustrated. Yet it's the set up of the author and there would be no story without adversities so I'll just cheer her on.

Characters have been well-made. Some named characters don't even have much of a role in the story but well, doesn't matter, I guess. The author doesn't put much needless background character perspectives, so it's alright.

World-building has been great though I'm pretty confused where is where and what is where. I think it's because I read the mtl of the raws. There's a limit to my brain's comphrension ability and auto grammar correction XD

I've already cried three times whilst reading the raws and makes me feel sympathy for her. That's also how good it is and how I think that Tragedy tag is a nice touch. It's comedic here, it's tragedic there. Somehow, they're in balance.

Overall, it was definitely a great read for me. It also makes you rethink the usual reincarnation troupes you love. It makes you laugh, cry, sympathise, and smile and maybe a bit creeped out in some chapters also a bit sadistic? There are just characters you wanna punch in the fface. So thank you to the author and the translator. Keep doing a good job. Mtl is quite hard to understand and I really hope the author updates soon XD <<less

One of my all time favorites, in my opinion the characters are really well made, the power system makes a fair amount of sense, and the world building is very good. Sorry for the lack of depth, but this my first time trying to even write a review. I know this doesn't mean much but I enjoyed it enough to put up with Google translate.

Basically the world hates MC, MC reincarnates, the world still hates MC, but now she has a friend (voice in her head).

Emmy is great, worldbuilding is great, story arcs are interesting. It's a good series.

I usually avoid tragedy story because it ruining my mood for the day but this one keep me entertained.

Its because theres happy go lucky moments amidst all the tragedy. Good dynamic between comedy and tragedy I should say.

Additionally, our protagonist, Emmy is so pitiful and precious. I want to cheer and wish all the best for her. I even swear on author at some point because Emmy misfortune keep piling up.

Overall I enjoy it very much. One of my all time favorite.

Really great read. I've always preferred characters with similar backgrounds like this: unfortunate, unlucky, poor, yet grateful, lively, and strives to improve their lives. The story so far has been a real treat with Emmy and Omake. The translations are incredible as well. Definitely a worthy read in my opinion.

It might be cliche, sure, but somehow it still makes me curious and remembered again and again, there should be some charm in it, the way the protagonist always trying to look at the bright side of thing, it deeply related me to who is the completely opposite yet longing to be like her. By no mean this novel something unique or a masterpiece, it's only by chance that it managed to capture my heart.
