She Professed Herself Pupil of Wise Man focuses on a VMMORPG 'Ark Earth Online’, an online game that appeared 4 years ago. It first appeared on a late-night T.V. ad in the form of a VR access code. Sakimori Kagami is a player that decides to try the game. Sakimori plays as a summoner and his player character looks like an old man, like any magician should look like. One day he purchases an appearance change item to see how he would look like, if his player character were a girl. However, when changing the character’s appearance, he falls asleep. When he wakes up,
he notices that instead of being an old magician, he has used as a main character for so long, he is now a little and fragile girl that is trapped in the world that reminds of the game he has been playing for a while now.
Sakimori’s summoner is called Dunbalf, a very powerful magician that is highly respected among humans, demons, fairies, spirits; there is hardly anyone that does not know the magician Dunbalf and how he looks like. But Dunbalf is no more, because of Sakimori’s mistake, he is now Mira, a young disciple of Dunbalf himself. The storyline focuses on Mira as she finds out more about the world she lives in now. And that is it. I would not say that a story like that is anywhere new and that it offers anything unique to the reader. On top of that, it will take somewhere 16 chapters for the story to show some kind of a development and what it is all about. Having read 16-20 chapters, the story will be much better, so give it a chance and do not drop it after 2-4 chapters.
However, even when the story starts showing its colors and you start to understand what it is going to be about, the main problem is that this manga is somewhat boring; there are too many unnecessary episodes that have nothing to do with the story and character development. Do not get me wrong, though. It is not that bad and has a potential to become even better in the future chapters, if it focuses more on the actual plot than on bathing lolis and some other unnecessary episodes. If it does, time will tell. But for now, it is a 7/10.
