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 itís not Haruka who has the powers of the Holy Maiden they wished for. What will Satoki do!?

The premise, like most manga plots, is interesting (For Isekai) but then decides to write something super generic: "What if you're the chosen one but others think it's not you?"

The main girl and her friend are transported to another world (Its been a while since I've read this) is this unconfident, indecisive girl who has these holy powers to create weapons but for some reasons hides the fact that she is the one who can do so and helps her friend whose a fraud but considered to be this chosen maiden based on looks alone.

The manga's plot unravels from there and things get worse with each chapter as the main girl just does not want to admit she's this maiden everyone worships and other characters treat her poorly because she's ugly.

I don't know how I managed to finish but it ends with her being able to go home after finally being able to utilize her power fully but she doesn't resolve her issues of being the chosen one, nor being revealed as the holy one. She also leaves w/o her friend who is stuck in that world. She doesn't develop as a character and leaves the way she came in.

Not worth reading imo.

Actually a really interesting concept, it's a shame it couldn't be developed more, it would be great if possibly a more experienced or better story teller could grasp this concept and work with it because it could make for an excellent series. Left me feeling a tad bit disappointed in all honesty.

The art is gorgeous and the action is also very detailed, which is quite something for a shoujo manga. While the premise is kinda original for a lost-in-a-fantasy-world manga, the thing that made me like it the most was the characters: I hated some of them while others were very endearing, somehow everyone made a lasting impact while reading. The heroine was an otaku stuck in a position she didn't want or wasn't ready for and behaved the way you'd expect her to, aka like a real loser. Her refusal to take any responsibility for herself is one of the central themes and as the story goes on you get to see her starting to grow a spine.

Unfortunately this is where the story stops. Although I wouldn't call the ending badly executed it does lack some closure. It makes you wish that you saw more of her growth and that you learnt more about the other characters as well. It is still a very appropriate ending for a heroine who was actually never the main character, but it does leave you yearning for more.

Still loved it and looking forward to the author's future works.

I LOVED THIS SERIES SO MUCH YOU DONT UNDERSTAND. Satoki can be indecisive and very rabbit like but I think it's endearing. She's so atypical of a heroine. I love it. The ending wasn't the best and the story had SO MUCH POTENTIAL but it's pretty one of a kind to be honest. She doesn't end up with anybody and she goes back to her world. There's no typical romance and her personality isn't very typical of a heroine either.

And at the end, don't you guys think that Miva was trying to confess his feelings? He seemed kind of increasingly attracted to Satoki throughout the manga and at the end he kept trying to tell her "something" but Satoki was so distracted that he just looked like he kinda gave up trying to confess and told her she did a good job. Does anyone else get that kind of vibe ??? I would have loved if they got together but I guess ironically the novelty lies in the fact she DOESNT get with anyone (in the manga)

I was waiting and waiting and waiting, for the heroine to get some backbone. I wanted to sympatize with her but it was a lost cause... From beginning to end she didn't change and kept this annoying attitude that "it cant be helped". I really wanted just a simple "I am the heroine of my own life" ending but didn' get even that -.-

Only manga ever that I wish was longer. Oh well...

It was really great, I specially loved the main character (Satoki) and how she reacted and acted, I could relate with her as I think that if I was in a similar situation like hers, I would've be the same! I loved Luce too. Only two characters that I liked. Oh! And Obdima!! How to forget about him? Hilarious!!

Anyway, as I said, it was really great, but it was also really short. I feel it had so much more potential, so many other scenarios that it could portray, like a showdown between Obdima and Satoki, or they becoming these competitive friends/rivals of sorts? Their scenes together were hilarious AND amazing, tbh. The manga could have shown us more of Luce and Satoki's friendship, more scenes to deepen their bond. And what if Satoki and Luce escaped the castle and went out in the world to travel and work as bounty hunters... That would have been amazing!! They working together amd helping people along the way, and hey! Maybe even meet with Haruka and Miva and the rest.

Anyway, again, as I said, it had so much potential and so much room for more scenarios, but... Author decided to end it like this at this time. Oh well. Enough is enough, I guess. Yeah, the ending seemed rushed and really fast, but I'm satisfied, I think. I mean, it could've been a worse ending, right? But it wasn't. It was a good ending, so it was okay.

Satoki, I've got your back. You're the best. I'll miss you. And Luce. And Obdima.

P.S. I absolutely hated how everyone (even Master/Miva) treated Satoki. Seriously, the girl has self-esteem and insecurity issues and you go and worsen it, and even when you say you're "friends"? That's no way how you treat your friends (yeah, I'm looking at you, Master/Miva). Everyone just kept disrespecting her and treating her badly just because she wasn't pretty or because she wasn't the Holy Maiden. Ugh.

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.
