Cute, but not much else.

Characters often make s*upid decisions or act uselessly for contrived reasons. The entire world seems to have had its IQ lowered, just so Lei can realize the obvious and seem smart by comparison.

Jokes that are almost funny the first time get overused to the point of annoyance.

There's a weird disparity between how Lei thinks and acts. She often wants to be treated less like a baby and her inner monologue has her thinking in a clearly mature manner, but like a typical Japanese character, is willing... more>> to go along with people's expectations of her until the last possible moment. Instead of asking the questions she wants to ask or trying to get information that might help her, she sits in a corner playing with blocks. For someone who's in such a precarious situation, she shows a remarkable lack of interest in actually doing anything proactive.

The pacing is pretty bad too. There are lots of events that give the appearance of advancing the plot, but without actually advancing the plot. Lei's situation as of chapter 72, is exactly the same as it was back at chapter 12. Plenty of things have happened, but nothing has actually changed. <<less

Well, the first 20 chapters or so are nice, then MC gets kidnapped and that lasts for the the next 80.

but that’s ok, what’s not ok is how just weird it would be to imagine a 1 year old baby speaking/commanding experienced ghost hunters. Far be it for me to know how things would be in a magic world... but it’s kind of ridiculous, not only does this 1yr old baby speak like an adult, she even revolutionized magic by learning how to mimic these barrier boxes that keep people... more>> safe from the ghosts.

basically this story is about a grandma who dies peacefully in bed, is reborn as a baby in a lower intellectual world and as a result, her normal IQ is impressive. Mind you, it’s not impressive because a 1yr old is saying these things and people are giving her more credit due to her age, the 1yr old baby is making choices/observations that are seen as smart/inventive. <<less

It is a pretty cute story about a woman who is reborn in another world. Unfortunately,

... more>>

her mother dies while giving birth to her and her father hates her due to this reason.


She has a cute, sis-con elder brother and as usual, wonderful magic powers.

Seems like a fluffy, slice-of-life. Hope the translator continues/ someone picks up the translation. <<less

i rated five stars because it's cute! It's cute, ok! I love fluff and sweetness! Listen, I google translated this up to 87 chapters, as of now! I've been binge reading it! It's a heartwarming story! How she bonds with people, and such! It's a sweet story, and Lilia (Riria? Dunno) is super cute! Kyaa, she's really cute! Her interactions with her family and the others, it's adorableeee! The interactions carry this story, let me tell ya! It's fluff! She's cute! I'm just repeating myself, but yes, I'm gushing over... more>> it---!

some extra things:

there are some plot things, and stuff. But I'm not a person who reads for plot. For the plot, you can judge that youself--- yes, she acts smart beyond her age, but things like her speech and all that being slower is still there. But like, yeah, up to you to be particular.

anyway, if you like sweetness and fluff and heartwarming, read this! It's cute! <<less

Fun, cute, fluffy, and fun (Yes, I said one of those words twice). Nothing special, but it's a good read all the same. It would've been perfect if not for the age-dissonance that occurs after ... more>>

she gets kidnapped.


I know that with reincarnation, the psyche of the characters are far older than what their appearances suggest, but... I don't know, it just bugs me. I'm okay with children (maybe 4 or 5 at the youngest) being acclaimed as geniuses and prodigies, but I always feel really peeved whenever I see fully grown adults relying on babies not even a few years old in stories. <<less

i love this novel though the last few chapters were quit the plot twist and made me sad but I still love this novel it's cute even if it's sad somehow it feels like "before you get the fluff you have to suffer first no free fluff here "yah but I still love it though I have to tell whoever thinks "if to read" and is belating reading this from his/her reading list..

you:what is something wrong ?( ̄ε ̄)

me:..... weeell I won't spoil it for you but it'snt there for show just keep this in mind (lll-ω-)

you: wait what do you mean ? this is shoujo u know ? and there's a heartwarming tag as well so what could possibly go wrong right?

you stare dumbfounded wondering what to do.. and you run out of options (∥ ̄■ ̄∥) (◢д◣) in the end you give up and read it and become this 从´_υ`从 (╥_╥) (/;◇;) /... so be prebared the fluff comes at a price though I don't know about upcoming chaps but the recent ones..从´_υ`从 read and see for yourself (*´Д`) =з <<less

Had me entertained reading from start to current release for a day off in quarantine. Comedic without resorting (much) to the stereotypical "falls down" cliches. Decent work on subtleties and empathy in a bottom-up perspective.

Be warned to suspend your disbelief, since peeps in this world give tons of stock to the words of a newborn. Typos and redundancies are trivial, but sometimes things get entirely confusing due to either the lack of identification of who's speaking or when "understandings" between characters are displayed through monotones.

Also, as an English-as-a-2nd-language person, this... more>> novel contains the absolute worst, most dreadful writing sin.

Baby talk. <<less

As of ch 49, five stars (for its target audience). The story is about a baby trying to find happiness. If you are looking for any kind of action you would be disappointed. This story is good because the characters act considerably realistic, meaning they don't act smarter or dumber than they should normally be according to their age/station/experiences/individual in general. There are no s*upid hate sinks/cannon fodder characters for example, those that usually pick a fight with MC, lose, pick another fight.
At the same time, it 'succeeds' in... more>> its selling point, the cute and heartwarming department.

As for the 'cons', well, the cons are debatable. For one, it is 'slow'. MC is still a baby at ch 49. It would also probably 'lose some of the cuteness' when the MC grows up. Last but not least, readers would likely require another dose of insulin. WOO DIABETES! WOO INSULIN OVERDOSE! <<less

I would recommend it if you like to read something cute and heart warming story.

The story begin with her as a baby. I really love when the author use a logic in the growth of baby, as mostly the other story, doesn't take note this part.

The writing is also interesting and I doesn't get bored when read it, although the story is a bit slow, as it tell in detail on her age progression.

There is a manga version of this but I gonna tell you, the manga version is a... more>> bit slow than the novel.

I got to mtl this story as I cannot wait to read it. But the translation is not slow either. I really love to read this very muchhhhh. <<less

As of now I have only read up to chapter ten, as such this will be a preliminary review which I may update once I have read further in and have gotten an idea where the story is going. As always I am going to start by talking about the translation quality itself, since the translations will undoubtedly be the first thing anyone reading a novel here will notice and can often make or break a series. That said, frankly the translations are impeccable. The translators clearly have a strong... more>> grasp on the fundamentals of the English language and probably have experience writing stories of their own. Furthermore, so far the entire series has been translated by the same group so I am expecting the quality to remain consistent.

The next point to talk about is the world building. As I have yet to make it very far it is still entirely possible that this will change or that inconsistencies will arise. That said, currently I have no complaints on this field. Honestly it has been a bit scant on details but I can say with certainty that it isn't just "your average medieval fantasy world" that novels like these tend to have.

From what I have seen there probably are not going to be the usual monsters you see in stories like this. No goblins, no orcs, no dragons, etc. (Edit: Okay as of chapter 11 there are indeed dragons. Though they seem to be used like horses instead of actual dragons.) Instead the only danger that has been mentioned are referred to as Hollows. These seem to be shapeshifters which take the appearance of people and prey on humans for food. According to the preliminary information we have been given, beneath they are completely hollow. No meat, no bones, etc. And when they die they crumple up into rechargeable battery-like magic stones that are used to power everything.

Some examples? For the most part no clue. For the most part this story has been following the principle of showig instead of telling. Which is good, means there are no pointless info dumps which means you can really get a more natural feel for the world as it develops. That said, so far all I can say is the magic stones are used instead of electricity for lights and they may be partly used for powering a giant barrier surrounding the major city/cities that keeps the hollows out (likely more info about these barriers soon).

As the details have still been scant I do not know how far civilization has advanced or even if this barrier is used over multiple cities or just one. Haven't seen any horse drawn carriages or cars or anything else that will suggest the level of civilization since the MC has not yet left her house and little explanation has been said about the quality of the house itself besides that it is large enough to have several wings. All that said, so far the world building is suggesting that proper thought has been put into it, and this won't turn out being a copy paste of the worlds seen in so many other novels here.

Now for my only complaint, and the reason why I didn't give this five stars. Now, before I say anything I will talk about some minor story spoilers, but again only for the first ten chapters, which covers the first year of the mc's life as a baby. Honestly, this is just me being a bit petty and this isn't going to be something that bothers most anybody else so just think of it as me ranting a bit.

My only problem with this series so far is the premise, most specifically the novel's description. In the description if says, "When I woke up, I had been reborn as a baby. My mother passed away and I was neglected by my father. Even though I was born in a Marquis family, my life started on a HARD MODE." This whole thing just pisses me off.

Yes, the mc's mother died during childbirth and in his grief the father neglected the MC. That said, she never went hungry. She still had a warm place to sleep and was cared for by the house's servants. While she was ignored often when she cried, (mostly because the servants weren't sure if her father would get mad at them if they treated her well, as in his grief he blamed her for her mother's death) she would have always had someone nearby in case anything actually bad were to happen to her. In no way can this ever be called "HARD MODE." I personally had a far worse childhood than this and the whole idea comes off as a spoiled brat not knowing what hardship really means.


this treatment doesn't even last for a full year. The father ends up being won over and starts treating her like his greatest treasure by chapter eight. CHAPTER EIGHT. That's before she can even walk and before her first birthday. If she didn't have the mind of an adult she wouldn't even have remembered anything from that time period.


Ok. Rant over. Other than my complaints above this series looks like might turn out a good one. <<less

Cute and fluffy, nice read overall, it does better than a lot of "reincarnated into a baby" novel, but still has some problems.

Pretty much every adult in the novel acts a bit unrealistically, it's not absurd and jarring like a lot of the novels that focus on the childhood of the protagonist, but it still feels like they are dumb if you pay attention; it's not bad enough to ruin the story though.

The protagonist has the mind of an adult, but is influenced by her body, she get amused by... more>> mundane things, easily distracted and she's childish in the day to day interactions, but her mature self takes over during serious times (which sadly, as I mentioned above, is significantly more mature than the other adults). Overall I like how she's depicted, she doesn't feel like [cliché japanese protagonist, but in the body of a child! Except they still are the same as every other japanese webnovel protagonist] but instead a decently realistic depiction of an adult in the body of baby (not that I'm an expert on babies, but it's definitely better than average for a webnovel).

The story and the setting is decently unique, for an isekai at least; nothing special but it's not bad. The pacing is slow, but I didn't find it boring.

The comedy sometimes puts a smile on my face, sometimes is repetitive.

And again, it's cute. <<less

I love this novel!!!

It was so much more than I expected. I was reading it, mildly expecting some fluff, and light doting family shenanigans, but I was pleasantly surprised as it turned out to be much more to my liking than a ordinary "no plot mindless fluff puff" story. It has engaging world building, unexpected twists, a storyline that is very adventurous and also magic! I've been searching for a really good isekai for a while and this has answered my call. While for some people, they read this expecting... more>> moe and are disappointed in the lack of moe after a certain point, I find that I far value the adventure and journey that they go through to be far more enjoyable than Moe fluff. <<less

Dropped at 26.

I started off enjoying the story I dont really mind how everyone acts about her intelligence its common within the baby reincarnation genre. What grinds my gears is how jarring the dad is in his POV, like his mindset seems more childlike than his children its just weird and brings me out of the story. Then the ... more>>

kidnapping was so badly done even a child would have refused to go with the maid so late at night let alone someone with apparent intelligence. Then throughout the journey she could have kicked up a fuss to slow them down or at the end tell the dragon to not run away from her father which its apparently protecting her from or just jump into his arms/air since someone would catch her even if she missed. It would have been more believable if she was just knocked out for the entire situation until the frontier.

I wish her brother was more involved or had pov's instead of the father after the


then I might have lasted longer. <<less

I love this novel!

Lately, I have been looking and reading almost (if not all) all the "daughters" novel. This is the first Japanese novel about daughter for me and I find it more endearing than the others (the others I read are from Korean novels).

I think the reason for it is the first few chapters of this novel. Her struggles and efforts in that first few chapters is making me feel all kind of feelings. Heartache, heartbreak, joy, laughter, and amazement at her. It feels like she is larger than... more>> life with her attitudes toward her abandonment.

There is some comedy put into it so the the vibe isn't that dark. I meant the baby is being taken care of by only 1 person who gives her milk/food. Aside from that she's all alone all day and night. That's it. And her speech about how we should take care of a baby is breaking my heart.

I look forward to read about her life. I hope the group will translate this until the end (with the premis that the author actually finished it. ?) <<less

Normally I do not make reviews with so few chapters, but this one just hits the feels just right.
You get a great slice of life story from the baby perspective that also grants just the right human element to developments.

I am seriously looking forward to the rest of this story, so much that I may in fact try using this story to try to become literate in Japanese. As right now I can only converse.

From comment and my reading, I do agree with cute and fluffy stories it has. Recommend those who love cute is justice. For those who need plot development, sorry this novel is not for you. I have plot but no expansion of it. Example, kind like, there are monster there, then that's it. No explanation. Like how the monster came, for what reason. No, nothing.

so yeah, cute and fluffy 10/10

plot development 3/10
