A science nerd dies and asks the goddess for the skills: structural analysis and structural editing.  Those skills don’t exist, so the goddess (who is NOT a scientist) tries her best and makes up new skills.  What?  Could possibly!?  Go wrong!?!  So yeah, she’s pretty instantly OP so there is that.  Otherwise: it’s an isekai, that’s what you’re here for and that’s what you get, but there’s nothing really special here. 

It’s incredibly forced and rushed in the first chapter, skipping around from 15 years after the main character died in our world to the main character’s death as remembered by side characters to the main character being reincarnated to her at ages 0, 3, and 5 all crammed together, but after the second chapter or so it starts to pick up.  Then there’s more time skipping because the author has an aversion to letting you read about her childhood, but yeah.  It does get a little better- goes from garbage isekai to average isekai.   

The story tries to give heavy handed hints at ‘there’s a mystery’ and ‘there is more to the story than you know’ but it isn’t interesting enough for you to really care.  It’s pretty obvious who is ‘a bad guy’ and who is ‘hiding something’ but you don’t really care because the main character is so overpowered it doesn’t matter

The characters are shown, but even if they’re named, you don’t remember them (I literally only remember the main character’s name, Charlotte) and their personalities are all just placeholder personalities.  They exist, but only as foils for the main character.  Backround NPCs.  Mom character, Dad character, Priest character, Soldier 1, Soldier 2. 

The art is a solid average for what’s expected of cookie cutter standard manga art nowadays, they’re lazy on a lot of the backgrounds and some panels are more ‘lazy shading’ than ‘actual screentones’ but it’s just average.

Dropped at ch6, they butchered the isekai within 5 chapters. The idea is great but literally just huge time skips ruined it. Way too rushed, i recomend something else before investing your time in this flop. Also the translation needs work.

  • Cliche. Period
  • Half of it is just MC's cooking earth-meals and getting praised
  • There is not much to see about her skills except for a short "Would this work?" and then, ofcourse it works
  • The characters are children and unsuprisingly childish
  • The whole plot is rushed as fuck
  • Even though I can't say it for sure, but I have a strong feeling that the result of all plots and events in the future will be the characters becoming friends and playing house. I'm really tired of this in japanese mangas.

The will probably be some kind of "story", but considering the first 15 chapters, I can't take it serious and I can't take this "villian becoming friends because of 2-3 words from MC" plot anymore.

I find the use of the main characters abilities to be rather uncreative and nebulous, but it's nice having an op child main character who isn't putting all their effort into hiding their abilities from even their parents. It's rather average, and it doesn't hit the same spot as other manifacturing/power building stories since there's no long slow grind and research involved, but it also doesn't hit the same spot as other discovery stories since the discoveries aren't particularly satisfying since there's little mystery in the first place. Some of the more violent/disturbing visuals are well done and impactful, and it does seem to be teetering on the edge of finally becoming a little slower and more creative, so it's not boring enough to drop.
