    Isekai, but not THAT kind of Isekai.
    Alright yes, it is another isekai in the torrent of isekais, the character animation is meh, the voice acting is passable, and the smiles... *shiver*… But what this anime lacks in production value, it more than makes up for in originality. While I said it was an isekai, it is far from your typical power fantasy isekai that you can find just about anywhere, instead going for slice of life anime ...

    I want to give this show 2 stars...
    ...but I can't. This show poorly explores the very tired "reborn in a fantasy world" genre. The ending is basically spoiled in the first minute of the show so there is nothing really keeping you watching aside from how she gets there. One episode in they give you an extremely one dimensional, tropey character that utterly and completely relies on plot devices and everyone around her being ...

    Realistic but lighthearted
    Instead of following the money and power level one-upmanship, the author of this series saw the true promise of the tired isekai genre and went back to the drawing board for a story about improving the world that brings history to life.

    Kind of reminds me of Dr Stone but less cheesy.

    Love this show must watch.
    I read ahead and I still want to watch the anime. It is a great story and a beautiful show. I didn’t even realize I’ve been watching for the whole show until it ended and I wanted more. Five stars would watch multiple times until satisfied. Even new episodes give me excitement that I haven’t felt in a while, and it is great they returned to the female protagonist for isekai anime. It has been ...

    you want a wholesome anime you can just watch? here it is!
    to put it short its nice. not much plot but enough so its not boring. although it is *cough* another isekia, its really not that bad. give it a 3 to 4 episode watch and find out as it applies to a general yet some what specific audience.

    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 ...

  • 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

    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.

    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 ...
