==I do reviews from the perspective of a normie.
==I am not a weeb or enthusiast willing to excuse questionable parts of the medium and unsavory tropes.
Giving a protagonist the power to solve any problem makes for poor storytelling. It invalidates any conflict or tension.
The only thing the author can then do is pretend like the protagonist's abilities are incapable of solving the problem, or pretending like she has no powers at all. Which is what this isekai chooses to do. Problems build up and conflict happen while we the reader pretend, like the author, that she has no powers whatsoever. Until the
crucial final moment, where she will solve the conflict in a way that IS clever. It is just that everything leading up to it weren't.
If you want an easy-going powerfantasy escapism that you can enjoy if youturn your brain off. Then this is not bad.
I suppose I am thankful that I am frustrated at the plot holes, rather than objectification of female characters, fanservice, slavery portrayal, incel protagonist, or a lack of morals in both the protagonist and the author. None of that here thankfully.
Recommended for those who enjoy isekais. Not recommended to those who want a good isekais.
