Motosu Urano, a book-loving college student who just got her Librarian certification and was supposed to enter the job of her dreams after graduation, was killed during a massive earthquake crushing her underneath a pile of her own massive collection of books.
Wishing for reincarnation in order to read even more, she got reincarnated to a world with a low literacy level and very few books, limited only to the nobility of the world. As she reincarnated as 5-year-old daughter of a lowly soldier, Maine, no matter how much she wants to read, there is no way there are any books around. If there are no books then what do you do? You make them yourself of course... What her goal is, to become a librarian no matter what, and to live a life surrounded by books. For starters she begins from making them.
I am a sucker for Isekai even though I usually think the stories are sub-par. However, this story has me wrapped around its finger.
The characters are written very well especially the MC. She does not go into the world with the standard OP powers it seems like all Isekai protagonists have. She has even more disadvantages than advantages but she still strives toward her goal. Plus the dad becomes such a great character later on in the story.
It gives me all the feels. Sometimes when I turn the page and see the next scene my heart skips a beat. You don't think that a character
is struggling as bad as they are and then you see them broken down and it really hits you hard.
I love this story so much. I watched the first to episodes of the anime then binged the rest of the manga. I did not have high expectations for it at first but I was very surprised by how it turned out.
I think this is a fairly good story and especially compared to other stories that feature a female MC reincarnating at a young age. Really, There's just one issue.
That's the boys. I don't like them and feel they take too much screen time. I am more interested in the MC making all these inventions with the help of her sister or by herself.
Something is really interesting about how the story portrays medieval time. It's more of what a realistic look at the time period then you see in most stories.
I was also wanting her to start making her products and become a
high class noble. I want to see her and her family get out of poverty and become really popular. Hell, She can even get access to lots of books this way.
I hope to see more of this in the future with less of the boys in this. The girls in this are just more interesting. Hell, I do think it'd be fun seeing her grow up.
I also hope to god that there isn't any romance ( Unless Yuri cause you know) I am actually wanting something like a harem of girls around the MC except just have it be friends and what not.
Surprisingly, it is incredibly well done, and might as well be one of the best "modern isekai" animes and mangas out there.
You see, the standard mistake a modern isekai does is going through routine processes of game like abilities, guild ranks and so on. Sometimes it has few core ideas, but once those played out, it starts falling apart.
This is not the case here. It is one of the titles where rather than focusing on power fantasies, explosions and harems, the script decided to stick to the story and see it through. The world looks incredibly believable, albeit definitely quite tough, characters have convincing personalities
and motivation, and there are no overpowered abilities to get in your way. At the same time, the world is definitely magical, even odd, and at the same time the manga provides explanations when needed. It is really good.
One of the few well written modern reincarnation isekai mangas. Convincing world, enough magic when needed, explanations when needed, and focus on the story without getting distracted by power fantasies and the like. It is good.
I liked the art, but it didn't take my breath away. It has well drawn architecture and serves its purpose, but is not incredible. Still, there are mangas that look worse.
Convincing, life-like characters that are hard to trace to archetypes, with believable interactions between them. Main character is annoying in the beginning, due to pushing too hard for the the idea of books, but overtime I got used to it.
I definitely liked it. It is slow paced, slow development, with enough trivia and information, and occasional slightly darker pieces (but not too dark). Very wlell portrayed lower-tech low-magic world.
I recommend to check it out. It is one of the well written mangas out there.
