This manga plays into the Accidental Hero type of space (you know, like the kind of space that My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead To Doom! plays into). Our protagonist, Sophia, has the stated goal of just wanting to marry and thus avoid the death by adventuring that occurred during feir first timeline. That stated goal, though, is there more to create the ironic moments of "you're nowhere near the path of a married life" than for legit character motives. Sophia kinda gets swept up in the flow of things and seems to have also taken on a personal interest in helping Raiye with feir goal. Which is fine. Most of this manga is fine. The fights are fine. The humor is fine. The apparent trajectory of Sophia becoming hugely influential and revered is fine. But I don't think anything really goes beyond just being "fine." And some things, like the artwork and characterizations, can sometimes dip below the level of "fine" and feel a bit like a negative.

Somewhat refreshing, this manga reads as a cliche shonen time-travel second-chance at live fantasy except the protaganist is a girl this time.  Using knowledge from her last try and superior self-training since childhood.  Otherwise, expect pretty much the typical guild-adventurer-dungeon exploration fantasy and the MC picking up princes/lords instead of princesses/ladies and instead of a hot guild receptionist lady, it's a cute guild receptionist guy- like that.  It's like a cliche isekai but there's no truck-kun in this one because it's all the same world and the standard cliches are mostly gender bent.

In fact, if the MC was a boy and everyone else was gender swapped, this would be EXACTLY a dime-a-dozen manga.  Exactly average, to put it bluntly.  Doesn't mean it sucks, though.
