    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!

  • 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, ...

    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.

  • 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 ...

  • Tensei-Isekai meets Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
    It's an awesome feel good series. All of the characters thus far are likable if not lovable, the art is great, the voice acting is perfect, and the relationships are adorable. The main character, Main, is super knowledgeable, due to her tensei-isekai-ness, but she isn't OP. If anything, she's the opposite as she is born the frail daughter of a peasant family. Everything she does is because of her ...

  • SO TENDER! A great concept matched with heart warming scenes.
    The first few episodes are so heartwarming and cute, also the entire concept of the anime is lovely! I cant tell whats going to happen next and I can't wait to find out! From the intro we know that this is a magical world, but there's so much happening in the series right now the creators almost make us forget about it until they bring up the strange ice tree in ep. 3. I'm very interested to see ...

  • I really like it, one of the best of the season
    This season I have struggled to find anime I like. Last season my fave was "Fruits basket" Anyway, this is a great Anime, sweet, likable characters...a strong, ambitious smart female character that doesn't resort to fun service.

    The dialogue is really good.. So I like it and strongly recommend it

  • quickly becoming one of my favorite anime..... ever.
    I came into this thinking it was going to be some magical isekai anime that books are powerful and knowledge gives you power or something along those lines. I am finding myself grinning ear to ear with what i got. the protag, aptly named Main, Is just a super smart women from modern day japan that was reborn into this little girl. Her knowledge from reading any and every book known to man is ...

  • Really well done, always looking forward to the next episode.
    Absolutely love this Anime, everything about it is nice without feeling forced. It is different from other shows that I also enjoy, but it is those differences that make it great. I also like that it actually teaches as well, very good for children and people of all ages.
