    Surprisingly entertaining.

    I bought this novel on a whim, while I waited for a few other books to be released. Similar premise to quite a few books nowadays; main character dies, gets reincarnated in a new world, and gains new powers because of this. However, while this is the main premise of most recent light novels, I enjoy the author's hero choice. First and foremost, the main character has been reincarnated as a vending machine; an (normally) inanimate object, which changes how the hero directly interacts with the world around him; simply having a conversation with the first person to meet him is a challenge, let alone the lack normal motor functions. True, he(it?,) has a rare type of magic gained initially; however, said magic is defensive in nature, the rest of his abilities are more of a enforced merchantile support,(no overpowered offense magic(yet?), and said world allows most(?) of its inhabitants to acquire one initially powerful magic ability. There appears to be a possible way for our immobilized hero to gain some semblance of physical humanity, but only as a distant possibility. What I find most fascinating, is how the author has written our hero in a way that highlights his previous life's obsession with vending machines vividly, and how he uses said devoution to influence his abilities and decisions. As an aside, this is the only book I've read, that has actually made me more curious and appreciative of vending machine technology, based solely on how the main hero's obsession.

    The relatable vending machine

    It's just good. If you like the 'isekai' (new world) genre of light novels, but you're a little tired with the same ol' same ol', this is great. If you're unfamiliar, but have a vending machine obsession, this is probably even better. Save a few gripes (like a defensive force field) it is just fascinating how the author managed to fully utilize all of a vending machine's potentials to get their way out of certain situations. The story is written with humour (as it should) but takes itself seriously enough to allow the reader to get drawn into the vending machine perspective. Never before has a vending machine been this relatable.
