    The manga was good with world building, so it may be a decent isekai.

    Librarian isekai? Yo that's my shit son, girl be making these dumbass medieval hicks all smart and shit and socialist with easily accessible libraries and ways to make people think reading is fun and shit. I can respect that as reading is hard and shit and is the way to civilization.

    I got so burned by anime in the last season, that all I could think of while watching this was "When does the pedo shit start?". Its gotten to the point where I just want to avoid all anime with young kids, because I've gotten repeatedly shocked by surprise loli shit way too much at this point. I remember when I didn't have to worry that any anime with kid characters could possibly be a show made for pedophiles...

    Relax, there's no pedo shit in the novels or manga.

    I like a few things already.

    1. It has a very interesting way to introduce everything.
    2. It seems realistic enough (like they showed life sucks)
    3. It doesn't seem she is a loli.
    I'm still iffy however. I'm not sure how interesting things can get, and I kinda seen a few things that takes me out of it. Like if you had knowledge of our world. Then wouldn't you try to bring some of that in the new world. Like the printing press. Ya you don't know the exacts on how it works, and realistically a kid wouldn't make it. But if you can draw and talk, you have a chance that it can be made or some official will look into it. Even more since it looks like she has good parents.
    But I could be jumping the gun.

    Still, I think this is worth a look.

    Episode 1:

    Looks like this is gonna be a chill and wholesome show. A bit slow-paced but I like slow-paced sometimes. The source material seems to be well-received so I'm looking forward to more.

    The art and animation is so jarring.

    E1: this looks cute enough, even if I'm a bit overdosed on isekai from watching Yu-No for what feels like the last ten years...

    This was a nice slow bit of world building and introduction that didn't feel like an exposition dump.

    So is reincarnation more like possession now, just taking over someone else's life? What happened to the original Myne, the one all the memories come from?

    Ep. 2 and thoughts:
    an isekai about a female protagonist slowly building a library strikes me as refreshing. I don't think there are a lot of isekai that are focused more on creating than destroying. Well, Reincarnation as a Slime was also about building a community. Well, needless to say, I'm all on board with watching this anime, can't wait to see where it will go.

    Episode 2:

    This continues to be comfy and cute. Probably my favorite isekai this season because of how wholesome it is.

    The Otto-san pun was amusing and got a good chuckle out of it.

    The "Main" character never dies! XP
    From what I understand she's taking a more realistic "awakening" approach.
    More than likely the body was always hers, but the memories didn't collide until the moment she wakes up in the bed.
    I still remember the moment my mind started "recording", I was walking down the stairs looking for something, and boom, that was it. I knew everyone in my family, where I was and how to speak, I just had no conscious recollection up to that point.

    For example if I ask you "when did you learn to speak your first language"? Most people would acknowledge they've known it for their whole life.

    Interesting train of tougth. Did you come up with it or was it explained in LN/manga?

    Episode 3:

    Man this episode sure warmed my cockles. Seeing Main and her family doing stuff and having fun together is so heart-warming and cute. I already got diabetes so this show is gonna kill me one day.

    I'm enjoying this a lot!
    I like how Main interacts with her family, how time passes, and how she uses things on hand to create stuff like shampoo

    It kinda reminds me of Dr. Stone but in a heartwarming way (and rather than collecting nitric acid, she makes pancakes)

    I do wonder what happened to the actual Main. Like, where did original Main go?? Did they switch bodies?

    How come the family doesn't question that their daughter knows so much more than them? They brought it up once, but it was quickly dismissed.

    Im curious about that, but it doesn't bother me since I'm content with how this show is going :duck:

    Episode 4:
    Whoa. Why is Main glowing and have rainbow eyes of all sudden? I do wish this stays somewhat grounded and I don't want them introducing some kind magical power and stuff. If they really want to include magic I hope it's lowkey as possible.

    Still, it's great to see Maine slowly accepting her new family and I love how supportive her parents are despite being baffled by her knowledge.
