Synopsis

Intrigued by the severe lack of faith a particular salaryman displayed as he drew his last breath, a godlike presence known only as "Being X" reincarnates him into a magical yet war-torn world to test his mettle. Under these new circumstances, Being X believes that, should this man succumb to relentless suffering, he will call upon the heavens for assistance.

Starting life again as a young girl named Tanya Degurechaff, the salaryman quickly utilizes his past experiences and volunteers to the military of his country, the Empire. Wielding tremendous potential despite being a child, Tanya's prodigious capacity for strategic and magical warfare allows her to quickly ascend the ranks and consistently lead her nation to miraculous victories in the ongoing war. Even so, she does all of this for one purpose: to live in the backlines far from the warzone, effectively defying Being X's objectives.

However, as Tanya strives to escape Being X's influence, she soon comes to know that even with her genius, there are situations that a human simply cannot overcome without divine intervention.

To be very frank, the story ( or more precise , the plot ) is not the best thing about this amazing masterpiece. If you know even a bit about both World Wars , you can certainly predict what major events will happen. That being said, following the story of Tanya, the author managed to make the dangerous , boring and often very fucked up life of a soldier exciting , or at the very least , interesting to see, which is an amazing achievement. It's even more interesting to see that the main character of this manga has a lot of read more

Story: The story isn't overly amazing but its far from bad. The story is set in an alternate reality in World War 1, but it starts around 10 years after our own WW1 so instead of WW1 happening in the 1910's its in the 1920's. The weaponry and out fits are very WW1 looking with some changes, but the biggest changes is the use of magic. I'm not going into more detail because of spoilers but the first few chapters sum it up.

Art: The art is pretty damn good, its not Berserk or Uzumaki in terms of art but diffidently good.

Characters: Now the only read more

Do you miss "Fullmetal Alchemist"? If so, I recommend giving "Youjo Senki" a try. Why do I say this? Keep on reading.

Both series' have a very similar vibe where the setting of the story is loosely based off history, and takes place during a time of devastating war. "Youjo Senki" and FMA share almost the same vibes due to the focus and the point of view that its told from; with "Youjo Senki" focusing even more on the events and the historical implication of those events, and FMA focusing more on the "magic". "Youjo Senki" is more like a documentary.

"Youjo Senki" is also a isekai read more

I enjoyed Youjo Senki's LN series, but the manga is just as good. What did the LN do really well in? It depicted a lot more of Tanya's monologuing which is lost in the manga, and there's also a lot more focus on Zettour, Rudersdorf, and a lot of different military personnel to really figure out why some military operation happened.
However, honestly, other than the monologuing, I really did not care much for the worldbuilding. The manga focuses more on the details of battles, the characters close to Tanya, and dialogue. The manga essentially focuses on the good parts of the novel, while cutting read more
