I'm just gonna straight into reviewing this after reading 5 chapters for the simple introduction if you found the manga by any chance.
This Manga is a fresh breathable air that I've been waiting for so damn long in Isekai plot. the last time I ever have this kind of feeling is when "Konosuba" and "The Black Healer" (Isekai de "Kuro no Iyashi Te" tte Yobarete Imasu) was out.
This one so far, took a route where the character is NOT "Reincarnated" or "Summoned" into another world like usual Isekai out there.
This one, is where the MC still alive and well. he goes to another world by
sleeping, or you can say, "Dreaming". and he didn't want to live in that world either and still work like usual adults.
And well, you see by the name of the comic, The Elf got transported into HIS world aka Our Universe
and let just say, this kind of plot have some ORIGINAL potential to be a light of Isekai genre. let's do a quick review!
because it was original. I love every single original plot that blend so well. and this manga didn't copy the usual isekai manga as you can see.
The Author suuurrrreeeely have been making some other works before this. like seriously, the art is very beautiful. it can go from chibi into maturely detailed character that is so beautifully drawn like a popular slice of life manga.
Pretty good character. the MC is not dense and neither weak or strong. meanwhile the girl (the Elf) have some reasonable personality and not overaggressive like usual lead girl character.
It's very nice. it is light-hearted (so far after reading 5 chapters). probably recommended when you want to relax.
Original, Did not have typical Dense or Overpowered MC, Very good art style, and enjoyable story plot.
Instead of dreaming about adventures and beautiful ladies, what if you actually visited a fantasy world every night? Fall asleep in the real world, wake up in the other one. Wouldn't that be fun?
Story: A 25 year old man, has for as long as he can remember, always awoken in a fantasy world the moment he falls asleep. He stays there until he sleeps again. (or dies) It's a typical "transported to a game-like fantasy world" story with some few minor original ideas. There is a level-up system, other races, magic etc. The selling point here is that he accidentally found out he could pull
an elf girl back to reality with him. And so he and the elf starts going between the two worlds together.
Food is a big part of the story, the elf girl travels with the protagonist to be able to eat delicious food. But there might just be a hidden goal as to why food is the only thing he can bring with him from Japan!
Art: The illustrations are both really good and just barely acceptable at the same time. Why? Well, the female bodies are super sexy, drawn with care. Designed to be attractive. But the faces are not of the same quality. The eyes are too far apart, the chins are pointy enough to stab someone to death, and there's just a lack of effort compared to the bodies.
Characters: *sigh* 25 year old virgin. Seriously? He has a job, a car, an apartment, and is not bad looking. No wonder the birth-rate in Japan is lower than ever, even the fictional Japanese men isn't getting any.
Anyway, the Protagonist and the Elf girl are both friendly, curious people. But there's just nothing original about them. After one volume it's still hard to have an emotional attachment to them. Food is a bigger part of the story, and is explained in more detail than the characters themselves.
Overall, I don't like gourmet stories, or virgin-adult protagonists. Heck, I never even understood why big-boobed elf girls are so damn popular. But the idea of how they travel between worlds is intriguing, and both worlds are well explained. Though a lack of focus makes this story very relaxed and open, making it seem slow and boring.
+ Sexy art
+- Dual-World story
- Weird Faces
- Gourmet Story
- Too Mainstream (Elf Girl with Big Boobs, OP protagonist, Fantasy world with levels and monster etc)
If this story were more about romance and less about food, it would be a really good and interesting tale. Unfortunately, there's too much food and not much of anything else. Even Dragons surrender in the face of overwhelming aroma of a home-cooked meal.
