Satoki Houma is an imaginative girl who enjoys shoujo manga. She has long comes to terms with the fact she will never be the type of girl that is the heroine of a manga — purely because she isn’t pretty, and she has decided she prefers to watch events unfold rather that get involved in any case. However, in the perfect shoujo manga twist, one day she gets dragged to an alternate world where the people have summoned a Holy Maiden to save them…!

Except so did her classmate, Haruka Toudou, who fits the exact model of a Shoujo Protagonist. Naturally, Satoki is overlooked for Haruka… except it’s not Haruka who has the powers of the Holy Maiden they wished for. What will Satoki do!?

It had promise but...

This manga resumes in a single line: "Making WORSE a BAD situation with every act". The premise of the manga was quite interesting and had promise but it was developed poorly. Useless or negative characters have their charm since they can go the bad way instead of becoming the "ideal character" (becoming evil or the anti hero type), but this MC just makes it worse for herself as a MC, no improvements (of any kind), and with every chapter the situation worsens for her just to make it plain ridiculous (joke intended) and annoying. When something happens to actually make the story right... the MC tries her damn best to keep it wrong, at least I can give a point because of this, it is original, a fail character that knows that she is a fail that wants to keep things failing for her (you're just playing the victim, just kill yourself please).

The manga is quite self serving, it should be IMPOSSIBLE to keep that pretense without anyone noticing that the cute girl has nothing for herself besides her face in the situation the story is in, at the most, people would start to notice that this power is UNRELIABLE when needed. How convenient that the MC is always there to help the other one keep the pretense at the PRECISE situations to regain some credibility, and this repeats constantly in every chapter (until a certain point). I only kept reading until the latest chapter because I wanted to SEE THE MC FAIL UTTERLY BEYOND HER "FAILNESS" and see completed her circle of bad and idiotic choices come back and bitch slap her in the face. She does not want stress or the agony of being a MC but ends up with stress and agony regardless, how else can you call this one but a complete idiot? And I hate idiots.

It's split between gag/serious plot. There are a lot of pokes at reverse harems, but the plot also progresses the way it would in a typical fantasy save-the-world story.

I feel pretty invested into Satoko as a character, especially with the last few chapters. She starts off as a chill, gag main character who doesn't mind being on the sideline, but in reality, no one is like that. She's just brushing it off and it comes off pretty as a funny but realistic portrayal of real life. She ends up with some power, starts thinking that maybe she could be in the spotlight because of some outside influences, but falls back to her old position. Now, the story is starting to really dig into her confidence issues as Haruka actually does have power, and there's a sweet-talking evil little prince.

So at first I was thinking, 'wow what a great idea' and I was looking forward to seeing how it carried on. The main character travels to another world with her more attractive friend, and because of her good looks the attractive friend is immediately assumed to be the 'Holy Maiden' even though the main character is the one with the power.
So far so good. It seemed like a really interesting take on the generic world travel manga and the typical shoujo hero. The art was pleasing too.

However *and I suggest you don't read on unless you want hints on how the plot develops* things started to go downhill really fast. First of all, even though the main character travels to this world alongside the 'holy maiden,' she's treated like trash? It didn't make any sense. Furthermore, when one of the characters figures out that the MC is actually the holy maiden, he doesn't treat her any better? Um, hello. You've been worshipping the other 'holy maiden,' why not this one?

Then things get EVEN worse. Suddenly it turns out that the attractive friend actually is the holy maiden after all. Erm, what? What kind of dumb plot twist is that? What happened to the whole premise of the manga?
And I'm not even going to go into how chaotic all the panels were and how confused I was about who was who.

I think what I'm going to do is drop it for now and come back later when there are more chapters and hopefully the plot has recovered...

It has some promising premises, and start strongly, but the MC's character is so out and over the top (and also very unbelievable, there is no way some one behave like her) that it took me out of the story.

It has some comedies, but it's not a gag manga, so the MC is either incredibly stupid or is just that ego centric, that she prefer to bet the war outcome just because she doesn't want to be embarrassed. Even a little kid would know to seek for authority when there is trouble, but NO, not her, she would rather fix it on her own even though there is a chance that the whole country will burn.

Looks really good so far~
It has a good twist on a troupe that's been getting pretty generic (Transported to Another World), and its refreshing to find a female protagonist that's not the classical sense of "beauty" (which seems to be a pretty big factor in the manga) that's funny, seems smart and maybe a little relatable.

I really hope for more soon, the story has me dying of curiosity.

The first chapter is already so promising! The art is awesome, the main heroine is not typical - that is, she behaves naturally, acts rationally and has a sense of humor (or, better to say, the mangaka has a sense of humor wink) - and the plot started off in an unordinary way. Can't wait for more!
