Sakimori Kagami plays a VRMMORPG called Arch Earth Online. He is a veteran player with the name and appearance similar to an elderly bearded wizard from a certain book about a ring.

One day he purchases an appearance change item as a last resort to spend expiring currency and gets the idea of choosing what he would want to look like if his character was ever a girl.

Falling asleep should have suspended the game, but Kagami wakes up still online and feels the game has has gotten a bit more realistic. Did Arch Earth Online finally get a long-awaited update? Or…

Guy who have game avatar that literaly, combination of Gandalf and Dumbledore. Suddenly had the game turn into Real. With a plot Twist, he become a Loli.
The premise sounds not convincing but it's a pretty good read. It's the adventure of an OP Loli damnit! I mean who wants to read a story of a Gandalf/Dumbledore fusion in another world right? Wait, actually it sounds interesting too... But this is Japanese Novel, Loli comes first!

... This review isn't helping isn't it?
I mean who reads review anyway... Just read... more>> and judge it yourself! I implore thee! <<less

Wanted to like it but...

It's kind of awful. The actual writing isn't very good-looking the story is excessively verbose yet says so little. The lack of anything happening is frustrating, even for a slice of life. 99% of the story is background and, even the parts that aren't, seem to only be set up for the author to launch into another multiple page back story explaining something minor, that adds little to the story at hand. Of course, backgroundis necessary, but this author needs to know that all context and... more>> no action makes an encyclopedia, not a story.

On the topic of "no action"- the characters' emotions are virtually non-existent and the author seems to be going through the motions of what a light novel does, without actually establishing a base for itself. It's just shallow, shallow, shallow. Overall, it's like suffering a slow death. I won't even get into the parts of the story that kinda creepy me out (like the loli obsession) as I've read plenty of other novels with similar themes that I still enjoyed. For this one, it's purely the execution that turned me off.

And then let's move on to the translation. Not too many major issues, but the number of small errors adds up to an annoyance like a lot of water drops add up to make a river. Ex: the fact that the translator's verb tenses continuously switch around, odd word order, and just weird, cryptic sentences make the less than mediocre story painful to read. And then the "witty" chapter titles the translator comes up with just come off as trying too hard and start to get annoying considering every one ends in "..." He's better off just leaving the author's original boring titles.

Now I know you're probably wondering why I bothered to review this story since I clearly hate everything about it, but I really don't hate it. I criticize it so harshly because it could have been a much better story considering the concept, but it seems like everyone involved insisted on making it as bad as possible. I'm simply disappointed in both the author's and translator's efforts, though I appreciate them nonetheless. Overall, I guess this is one of those stories where I recognize that it could be enjoyable or even good, but just happens to hit every single thing I dislike in light novel creation/translation. <<less

I've read up to chapter 32 and it is a nice read overall. Aside from the awkward grammar, the story itself is interesting.

Haven’t even finished chapter 7 and can’t go on... so many things that bug me about setting/characters/etc etc. This story is so detached from reality, as in, even for a fantasy work, characters need to act in ways that are relate-able,... as in, somewhat human (logical, or understandable, or emotional, whatever). The characters in this story act like either robots or aliens T_T

setting – because VR tech was developed, all companies *only* exist in VR now. No need for stores, for paperwork, for any hard copies of anything, even service... more>> industries now only exist in VR it seems. Schools don’t exist, and seems people are born, log online, and only ever log off for food and sleep. The stupidity of the author is astounding... a single EMP will cause society in his world to completely collapse. Tbh, don’t even have a clue how society functions. Since people never meet in real since there is no reason to. Unless of course, they live in the matrix. and the game world is a matrix within the matrix.

Character – so many inconsistencies... the char has apparently played the game for 4 years, and despite it being a learning game, his gear+stats+skills have not changed in 4 years. people like him disappeared for 30 years, but he still expects the old players to do the exact same things they were doing when it was still a game. wut? as in hey look I got transported to the future and everything became real, my best friend likes to play basketball... so of course he is you know, still playing basketball, who needs to even know what the hell happened to us anyway?

The 1st thing he notices when he gains consciousness is the smell of grass... so the 1st thing he does,... is pull it out then eat it... wut o.O? then he notices the taste of his drool... But despite his apparently godlike observation skills, he doesn’t notice that his gender has changed lololol.

the char is complete opposite of The New Gates char – no foresight, no planning, no sense of danger, no sense of caution... in fact, the char is “special”... from putting grass in his mouth to staring at butterflies to completely not noticing people talking to him and just blanking out... dude doesn’t even try to log out, and when he finally notices he can’t, no biggie.

game settings – people are pretty much forced to join a country because not doing so has several disadvantages like... complete item box lost on death, 24 hour death penalty, etc etc. Just based on that, its obvious that the game is a complete kuso-ge (sh*t game). w/c is quite understandable since the game has only been updated 2x in 4 years... which is a pro for the players...

players trapped in this world for 30 years, and there has not been any improvement in technology... like log horizon where everyone is a caveman...

So many more things... the details are what makes stories like this enjoyable... so...

2/5

then I think this is really ridiculous so

1/5 <<less

I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good gender bender OP character. The story is nice and most certainly enjoyable when people see the MC power.

That being said, I do not recommend reading the UndefTrans translations of ch48-57. The reading is so difficult to comprehend and it ruins the joy of reading. So I suggest waiting for properly translated chapters after this to read. It's kind of slow now but still worth the good read!

Raw reader here. I wouldn't quite put this series in my favorites, but maybe one rank below that?

Basic summary: VRMMO players get transferred to another world identical to the game. Not all at once, though, but rather here and there over a course of many years. The MC shows up decades later. In the game the MC RPed a summoner character who was basically Gandalf. Due to an accident in the transfer, he wound up in the body of a young girl instead. In the game his guild had created... more>> a player-run nation that's in trouble now that it's real life. The main McGuffin driving the story is the MC searching out her lost companions to save the country.

What's notable about this story is that it really takes its time, going over every detail and carefully building the world. It's been 4 years since it first began, but in the raws the MC has still only found a few of her companions. This means it can kind of drag a little bit at times, but at the same time it gives a real sense of going on an adventure I've seen few series match.

I'll give special mention to the MC's abilities. She's a summoner who occasionally uses a sort of magic kung-fu, and the author does a good job of making it interesting as she explores what she can do now that the game is real. The fight scenes are usually pretty fun and interesting.

I will say that I think the first parts are some of the weakest of the series, but that it gets more interesting later IMO. Hopefully someday the translation gets that far.

On that note, it's a bit of a difficult series to give a good translation to. The MC has a way of very explicitly talking like an old man in Japanese that's difficult to translate to English without sounding stilted. <<less

Much too wordy, too much circle jerk of the MC, and overall the story lacks focus without a concrete goal.

MC is kinda cute though.

if you already get used by light writing style then this series maybe wouldn't fit with you, cause almost every detail described by writer, if I should make an example maybe goblin slayer will be similiar, but with less comedy and more detail.

In the end I think this series have it own advantages that made me still reading it even with long and solid chapter, so rather than rate it without even read single chapter but just see those bad review I think you just have to read it a... more>> bit and rate it by yourself <<less

One of a few nice isekai novel with a real story, and no harem or cheesy love story ever hinted. However from chapter 47 above the translations are horrible it gave me brain hemorrhage; so I dropped this novel.

The story progression is kinda slow with the author tried to build the backstory, as the MC apparently skipped 30 years; so it's kinda understandable.

The fighting are cool with the MC using combination of summoning and close-quarter combat which is his/her signature.

Great story surrounding around Mira (MC), trapped in online games that-become-reality, detailed world building, great character buildup, great for filling time too

too bad it was a very hard translated one regarding the TL groups, slow release but, worth it!!

This series is pretty interesting. A guy role playing as Gandalf in a mmorpg gets trapped in the world, but the last thing before he got trapped was play around with a cash shop 'cosmetic change' item which changes him into a beautiful silver haired loli.

This series is a bit on the slower side and feels more like a slice of life. It is quite enjoyable because the author is good with little details and the interactions he has with people are very organic.

This novel have a slice of life feel to it, because of that it come out as slow for other people. Well after about 15 chapters the gears start turning faster tho. I can understand that the first chapters are boring as I have stop reading it a few time too.

After c15 (or around that) it become more heartwarming and cute. I really like those part. Typical MC defying commonsense and adventuring.

For those who give it 1 or 2 star I encourage you to continue reading it a little bit... more>> more as the good part come later.

I give it 4/5 star because the beginning. <<less

This series is a hidden gem. A good, decent and well fleshed-out setting. However it's too much verbose, redundant and unrelatable. Also sadly to say that the MC is incomprehensible as you get started from the first chapters, it's cringy. Not what you expect from a person that lives in a far future from ours. His hindsight is too shallow. Its like the human logic of reasoning has been removed from this series. And what do you usually expect from a jap. novel?
.... jap beta MC

Although aside from that,... more>> it's a good read for someone who waits for their fav. novel to update. <<less

It was pretty good, It reminded me of Only Sense Online because of how the MC acts like a girl but says he isn't (to himself, at least.) Overall, pretty decent novel, but doesn't have many unique parts to it.
