  • Best LN I've read in a while

    The biggest problem with this book was that there wasn't more of it. :) I eagerly await the next volume. As happens too often with LNs these days, instead of just telling a fantasy story, they feel the need to transport someone from our world to a fantasy world to be the hero of the story. However, this time around, it's an adult, working woman (who's actually so overworked that she thinks that working 9am - midnight is normal). Instead of being excited to be summoned, she's actually mad about the whole thing as a reasonable person would be (though it doesn't help that they accidentally summoned two people, and the young prince immediately assumes that the teenage girl who was also summoned is the hero rather than the mousy, twenty-something and _completely_ ignores the main character). However, she fairly quickly starts figuring out how to cope with her situation in this new world and essentially manages to get a job as a magic, pharmaceutical researcher (herbs were her hobby, and much of that knowledge seems to translate well to this new world only with magic added into the mix). So, instead of her dashing off to be the hero, we get something that's closer to a slice-of-life story (at least to begin with) as she learns about this new world and job (and to someone used to working insane hours, the work she's doing now mostly just seems like fun to her). I suspect that we'll get more of a plot as we get further into the series, but it's all very exploratory at this point with her trying to live as normal a life a she can in her extraordinary circumstances. If/when they decide to actually treat her as the hero though, in this case, the hero is someone known as a "saint" whose main job seems to be healing the land to get rid of monsters rather than defeating a demon king or anything action-heavy like that. So, she's basically supposed to be a very powerful healer, though to begin with, she's essentially seen as the spare saint, since two people were summoned, and she's mostly left to her own devices. Unsurprisingly, we also get some romance thrown into the mix (I've seen elsewhere call this series josei, which I'd agree with given who the protagonist is and what she's like, but it's definitely kid-friendly). With all of the incredibly attractive men around, it wouldn't have been surprising if the story became a reverse harem, though it seems like it's probably just going to be a single guy courting her. However, since she's somehow managed to never even go on a date in her life and as a workaholic who made only minimal attempts to look pretty is not used to the idea of men being interested in her, she's incredibly dense about the idea of anyone actually showing any interest in her. So, she's a lot like some male, LN main characters in that way. It will be interesting to see where the series goes, and I find the main character to be very refreshing (especially in comparison to how many isekai main characters are teenage boys who at least start out as being very immature if not outright annoying). Here, we get a hard-working, pretty normal, adult woman who wants to live a normal life but gets thrown into extraordinary circumstances. I think that it's pretty clear that she'll ultimately be happier in her new situation though as long as things don't go too far south in future volumes.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Refreshing Fantasy Slice-of-Life

    This story turns the "I've been summoned into a fantasy world" genre on it's head by making our female lead an adult working woman rather than an adorable high school girl (although one does come along for the ride). Sei is suddenly summoned to a fantasy world where, instead of becoming a hero or a saint, she is immediately ignored by the people who summoned her. But Sei is an intelligent and practical woman. Rather than sitting around and letting fate or other characters take then reins, she takes charge. Sei takes pains to learn about the world she finds herself in, gets herself a job, and actually thinks about her future. Sure it turns out that she's actually super overpowered, but the author puts more emphasis on what she achieves through her own hard work. Some romance is thrown into the mix but thankfully, despite being surrounded by gorgeous guys, this is not a reverse-harem and romance is not the focus. This is truly an enjoyable read and now my favourite light novel series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
