  • Good isekei with its own unique twist
    If you like isekei's you will like this. It comes at it from a unique perspective that is refreshing. Now for my warped synopsis:

    Its about a librarian who dies and reincarnates in another world by possessing the body of a dying fever stricken 5 year old in a medieval slum. She charms her impoverished acquaintances with knowledge and crafting skills from the old world. This eventually catches ...

    Boring but different
    The show does not offer anything of substantial value. Comedy is not above average. Combat doesn't really exist so far. Book development inching along slower than Doctor Stone's medicine creation. Characters are unremarkable for the most part, with a few bright spots due to the positivity of each character. Overall this anime is not a great use of time.

  • This show has only three flaws
    One is pretentious title, pretentious fetish of main character (books) and those irritating micro scenes that demonstrate internal monologue of MC, they try to be funny and cute and are neither of those.
    Apart from that, this is very nice show, that i could recommend (after 3 episodes) to anyone that is still tired after disappointment that was Isekai Sht Magician.
    Nice world building, ...

  • Another I'm from another world done differently
    Do you like rehashed ideas with a fresh spin. Well this is it! A women takes over a little girls dying body! Thrown back into a time like the middle ages, and all she wants is to read books but they are expensive and only for the noble. Watch as she fights her way to make a something simple as a book! All the while in a littles girls body that is to sickly to do much!

  • What you get with a female MC
    I find the lack of yelling, screaming, announcing attacks, forced confrontations with antagonist to be refreshing. The MC faces more pedestrian foes in day to day challenges which, through her own will and perseverance , she overcomes. Her challenges are relatable to the average viewer. I find myself rooting for the MC and her small triumphs as she progresses through this tale.
    I think many ...

    Wholesom, Realistic, Relaxed, and cute!
    Just finished the third episode and this is going to near the top of my list for this season.
    Although, it is an isekai it's smart about how it uses prior knowledge and the MC even even forgets things that she has already remembered. I keep getting a "Read or Die" Origins feeling from this.

  • so wholesome and cute!
    Such a wonderful anime so far, wholesome and entertaining, especially if you enjoy learning about stuff like in Dr. stone! I love all the characters so far, from the Dad to Lutz, no horrible loud and obnoxious "comedy relief" characters so far either, and the story so far is so charming and interesting

    Disappointed by the animation
    I have thoroughly enjoyed the manga adaptation of this story & was super excited when i heard they would be releasing a anime version. fast forward to today when i tried to watch the first episode & i couldn't look past everyone's HORRIFYING DEAD CGI EYES. to quote Robert Shaw from Jaws: "lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes". i kept thinking to myself "i'll just get over it sooner or ...
