The Saga of Tanya the Evil

When the average Japanese salaryman is suddenly thrown into in a world wracked with warfare and hardship by a supernatural power, they might first think to hide or run away. But not Tanya Degurechaff. A calculating and utilitarian man has been reborn as a child soldier. This young girl will do anything to rise in rank and find a way to live a life of comfort, and woe to any king, country, or god who stands in her way.

I dropped this a second time at chapter 3 (originally I read a little more but that was some years ago) So Tanya is a good series overall, has a nice setup, cool world, it's unique as an isekai can be and it's not hard on the eyes. So what's my issue with it? A couple of things: 1.- Characters: They're not bad but to be honest I just couldn't like the MC at all. I can't even fully remember any other characters by name nor face. The MC has quite a nasty personality for my taste so I just couldn't get behind him/her. 2.- Trivia. Trivia is cool. Dr. Stone does this every chapter and it's genuinely interesting. Trivia on Tanya tho... it's dropped too often as a side note or as an inner thought by the MC connecting his/her previous life knowledge, which can get annoying too fast for some (like me). 3.- Fan service. I don't mean the 'kya don't look at my pantsu!' kind but more like the 'let's make this character as moe as possible and badass as possible'. I can enjoy an overpowered character (I do like several series with op mc) but I just felt it was waaaay too forced in this manga. 4.- The world is lost. There's too much time focusing on the mc and too little time focusing on the world. You do get a snip of it here and there but most of the time the focus is on the MC and how badass he/she is. In general it's not a bad series, I can completely understand why some people like it or why some will like it. It caters to a certain audience, which i'm not part of. Give it a try if you're into powerful moe characters, militarism and real world history.
