Translation quality starts good but declines to the point of barely comprehensible as it shifts from one translator to another. Japanese seems very redundant to an English speaker when directly translated and a good TL knows when to remove the excess.

The story is similar in that way, it starts off interesting then just falls apart. She treats nobles badly even though they are the best way to reach her supposed goal. She apparently gets some high level connections on Earth at some point but never mentions when or how she... more>> gets them. She is very bad at making her store's products pass as from the same world, leaving everything wrapped/bottled in plastic, and not even looking into what other stores are selling to know what the market is like. And everyone just accepts and likes her in typical Mary Sue fashion. <<less

Man, FUNA, the first few chapters really interesting, the theme is intriguing, but at chptr 60-99 it's all focused too much only on sabine, colette and mitsuha. And the innermonologue keep talking about unimportant things again and again and again. Mitsuha or FUNA seems kinda forget the objectives most of the times. Lot of other characters but their story are either not developed or dull. Created an account just to write this cause I am so invested in this, but now I'm just disappointed. Going to drop this, new readers... more>> don't even bother to try, just read the manga. <<less

It's nice to see a protagonist who isn't afraid to pull off a nice grift on some fools for gold coins. She doesn't get stuck in the tropes of other novels and isn't adventuring or doing stupid romance stuff. No school *crosses fingers*, no pointless pretty boys, no annoying party members, just one girl and her desire for dough not being swayed by a silly moral compass.

It feels... realistic. Now, you see; in typical JP's isekai-novel, the MC tends to act as if it's natural. "Oh I got transported, now let's save a girl" or something, as if they're playing video game. But it's not like that for this MC. Thrown into wilderness, she struggled to survive until she collapsed on a trail, then luckily saved by a villager. She knows nothing about the world's language, and it took days before she was able to use simple gesture to communicate.

It seems to have potential, so I'll... more>> give a 5. Though I might edit it later, after it get more translated chapter...

—edited per ch24

I took back my 5-stars and give it a 3-stars

I'm not really sure about this series now. The sentences seem disconnected with each other, though I don't know whether they are intentional or just caused by bad translation works. The plot is still continuing as usual yet I can't seem to enjoy it anymore. The story feels too... bland, detached from any emotion. It's not on the level of "it's quite bad but OK"; it already reaches the "what the hell are they talking about?!"-level.

... if you want to read it, just skip read. It's not like you will lose anything. <<less

The beginning is good, maybe better than a lot of isekai story. It's still ok until the battle with dragons. After that, the story is just like a bunch of kids playing together.

  1. The author writes a lot of sentences, that or it's really bad sometimes or just meaningless.
  2. She tries to save money (well it's a fine reason) but then she does a lot of thing for fun (and for me it's seem like for free, because the story doesn't mention about what she gets later, maybe just a relationship with some higher-ups).
  3. Well she does have connection but she never uses it. She is also cold and anti-social with other nobles and doesn't care about them. However she still wants to sell her goods to other noble's territory. Everything she does is just playing around or taking care of her stores. I don't even know if she can somehow save 80, 000 gold (because she just sells things to commoners or asks some sla.. People to sell it). At least she has a territory.
  4. She always relies on earth items and if she brings something new, no one dare to ask her where she gets those. It feels like "oh it's from Shrine Maiden so it's fine".

i love FUNA sensei...i really do, I love her/his work, but man.... this one is really hard to read, dunno the fault is on the translator or FUNA, but I 95% sure its FUNA fault...

the story itself is lovely, I love the beginning, it somewhat realistic in term of expectation and reaction someone from earth to fantasy world

theres only couple main problem for me

  1. the author LOVE to use round about sarcasm and hyperbolic breaking 4th wall inner monologue, honestly, once in a while its fine, but this almost in every single goddamn paragraph, I hate it from the bottom of my heart.
  2. FUNA design the MC like a complete thougthless imbecile, seriously, she act "cold" to her benefactor (the earl one), hell, she don't even give a single shit, and yeah spread that plastic on that pure world like it didn't matter, the author justify it as "well we ask them to bring it back to the store", really ? does the character really have that high of hope for people ?, and also couple minutes after saying that, she bring plastic container/bag to the world for the popcorn, f*ck me...

I do like it, but one thing is really starting to bother me... all of the products that she brings over is going to be wrapped in plastic. However, from what I've read so far, there's absolutely no mention of recycling or proper plastic collection/disposal...

... Capitalism, Ho!

A light hearted girl doing this and that story. But instead of the usual rpg world, it's a medieval without magic with the MC starting a business. Despite the title, the MC isn't very money grubbing and will go very far just for fun. It starts serious but becomes a light hearted fun story a few chapters later.

It was great at the beginning, but after the dragon incident the author's writing style had an important shift and bacame very tedious to read.

Funa started being so repetitive on things that didn't matter and began to write in very short sentences, producing an incredibly poor narrative and low cohesion story. To that add the fact that translation wasn't the best... it became a pain to read.

But don't get me wrong, is not a translation problem, translation is just an additional issue. I have read other web novels with bad... more>> translations that aren't as bothersome to read as this one. <<less

It's typical Funa sensei's style, a story where a bad guy got crushed with a plot or you can say so many instant karma happened in it.

But, then after a few chapters, the story got mixed with some ridiculous plot where your logic doesn't apply anymore and the story felt so unreal, also it feels like the people in that story doesn't act like what "normal" person would do. This is the only flaw from Funa sensei's novel. I wouldn't say it's 100% bad, but everytime I encounter this part... more>> in Funa sensei's novel, I always say this in my mind "Funa sensei, you can do better than this, pls don't disappoint the reader with this kind of plot eventho the previous chapters were all good"
You'll probably think the same if you also read other Funa sensei's work, for example the few latest chapters of "I Said Make My Abilities Average!" which you can read in this website.

Overall this novel is good especially for those who like the plot where the bad guy who usually act all high and mighty at the beginning got crushed in the end with a satisfying plot. <<less

The MC is a girl right? She got brilliant mind, merchant skills, survival skills, trained by American Mercenaries, and try to save money so that she can have a relaxing life.

The MC is likeable indeed. But the story was too light. The author made the MC so lucky that everytime she brings a weird items, nobody dares to ask.

But, because I like to read this story...i forgave the author.

The story was fun to read, but sometimes too many monologue, but still quite easy to read. Unlike other isekai story... more>> (forgot the title) about a middle age guy that reincarnated and developed rubbers, that story got too many ramblings... felt so unreal. While this story felt real enough.

Read if you like the story.. thats all <<less

Sad to say this novel had so much potential that it just fails....

Sure you could still enjoy it, but the holes in the story and events..... you could make a new religion out of it (pun intended)

So the Shrine Maiden thing is still funny as a running gag. yet that is basically the only running gag (well besides the whole earl son trying to win her over) that is done well. I loved the dragon battle, loved the first time she was at the earls house, also even enjoyed... more>> the invasion and start of the territory arc. However it feels like a bunch of kindergartners playing with the teacher that just lets them do whatever they want cause its a job. Maybe I should even go as far as a preschool setting.

So many problems that have also been stated by others on the reviews, and if you read comments while reading, you will find mine that destroy many things that anyone with 10 mins on google would be able to see. It is obvious that the author either thinks he is always right, or doesn't care enough to be rational on many things. Still, the premise is enjoyable, the read is still fun sometimes. and after the whole wolf fang vs the army part, you can skip many parts, even chapters, and still enjoy/follow it decently. Just like his other novel I read, 'I will live with potions' it abandons so many parts of the story that it sets up as if it keeps getting passes to new authors (hence my many kids analogy) <<less

it is way better in the beggining. This is one of thise novels that is all a dream and perfect, it feels more like the author is writing a fanfic of his dream than a proper novel. I hope the author goes back on track and improves this boring ass plot that is incredibly ridiculous. Its ok for a light read

To keep this short...

If you liked "I will survive using potions!", you're likely to enjoy this as well, as there are A LOT of similarities (well-reused ideas)

This is a pretty light read with the biggest fault probably being how convenient things usually are for the MC.

For What it is, 4/5. Overall, 3.5/5

I read up to the most recent translated chapter and I enjoyed the story, but it’s started to meander. There isn’t much drive behind the story anymore and it’s losing the excitement and engagement from the beginning. Still, it’s well written and has an interesting plot.

Light Novel. Vanilla with some ridiculous required suspension of disbelief. Plot armor to the Max! Nonsensical circumstances done in nonsensical ways.

Ergo, a time waster novel. Good enough for that, but don't expect anything serious.

Steam Bun here~~


I give rate 3/5 star. Its possible to have 4.5 star from me, the why???

Although the story is pretty good (B+), no I think it will be exellent (A-).

I just can't enjoy it because that translation

I almost have to read 2x/paragraph to understand.

Thats all what I have to say.

If you like isekai, then I think this isekai is better than death march

Ok thanks for read my review see you again in another Novel

After reading all the chapter up to date that it is translated (c29 as of typing) I can say that this isekai novel is what you called fluffy, vanilla or can be called as relaxing. It is almost similar to Takarakuji de 40-oku Atattandakedo Isekai ni Ijuu Suru, where the protagonist can go back and forth to earth and to the other world. Aside from the fantasy monster like the orc and all, the story focuses on yamano mitsuha on road to riches. My only problem here is that she... more>> is relying too much on the earth item which can be a problem later on, even if she can deceived most of them for now the story will somewhat go to that topic, the only good thing that I can think of is that the mercenary code for both worlds are kinda respectable or at least the people who are following it.

im giving it a 3.8/5 as of now, hope the quality dont drop like any other isekai novel where only the first few arcs are good and the following will be boring already. <<less
