Synopsis

With a dignified veteran's body and a long white beard, summoner mage Dunbalf was one of the strongest player characters in the virtual reality online multiplayer roleplaying game Ark Earth Online, even heralded as a one-man army. Together with the "Nine Wise Mages" and King Solomon, they formed the mage player Kingdom of Alcait. But one day, Dunbalf and the other Nine Wise Mages suddenly go missing, leaving no trace behind.

In an effort to spend his expiring credits, Dunbalf had purchased a cosmetic kit and tinkered with his character; however, he accidentally fell asleep during the customization process. Upon waking up, Dunbalf not only notices that the world of Ark Earth Online has become more realistic, but also discovers that he has turned into a cute girl! After reaching Alcait, he learns it has been 30 years since he supposedly disappeared.

Now tasked with finding the other missing mages by King Solomon, the avid role player proclaims his new identity as Mira—the Pupil of the Wise Man Dunbalf—and ventures forth to prove his legacy.

I'm not sure why there are so many abysmal reviews here on MAL. I thought it was a wholesome enjoyable little series. Fun to watch and easily bingeable.

I do wish they'd made somewhat of a bigger deal about everyone being trapped in the isekai world, not being to log out, what's surely happened to their bodies in 30 years, and so on. Those facts are utterly glossed over and all but ignored. And I don't really like that.

That aside, it was an enjoyable watch. Though expect somewhat more of a wholesome entertaining experience like Bofuri rather than something hardcore and super serious like Overlord.

Mixed Feelings
Generic. That's a word your going to see a lot in this review because that perfectly describes it.

Going into the season this was honestly one of my most anticipated shows. I had discovered this show when I had just finished reading “The boy who cried wolf tells a lie today also”(which to this date is one of my favorite manga) which got me a bit interested in the Gender Bender genre. The premise for this show sounded intriguing and I was excited to see what it had to offer. As you might have guessed I was disappointed with the result.

The show makes little ...

TLDR
I watched this since it was there in Muse Asia, and I had never thought id ever have a more enjoyable time watching YT ads than anime.

Bad CGI is forgivable but the laughable amount of still frames, the same soundtrack being used everywhere even though it does not even fit, convoluted storytelling with several boring infodumps that only get MORE convoluted and stupid as the show progresses. everything about this show is lazy. The only plus I could see is MC having a pretty nice wardrobe and looking anywhere from slightly adorable, to the borderline-hentai-manga-loli type of cute in her numerous outfits.
