Well, this was an isekai that was totally worth the time.

Reincarnated as a Sword focuses on a thirty-year-old Japanese salaryman, who dies in a car accident and is reincarnated in a fantasy world. Not just as a person, but as an intelligent sword. And, of course, there are many monsters and other creatures, including humans, who want to steal, or to have the sword for themselves. Our protagonist, who remains nameless until meeting his wielder, does not feel human any longer. Its goal is to grow stronger by killing enemies and leveling up. Eventually, the sword finds itself a new wielder in the form of a young beast girl named Fran. The sword no longer only cares about growing stronger and the story of a beast girl and an intelligent sword begins.

I really enjoyed Reincarnated as a Sword. The best thing about it is that it offers a unique take on the isekai genre, where the person being transported to another world becomes something non-human, a sword. While the fist chapters do seem to be a bit average, cliché and boring as hell, later on, it becomes much better, when the two protagonists meet each other. Through the dialogues between the two, the reader gets a clear idea about the overall fantasy setting and about the main characters.

Overall, Reincarnated as a Sword could have been much better, but one thing is obvious, it truly is a unique isekai that really does its best to be not just your average le harem isekai with no plot, but actually a unique isekai that has a good story and likeable characters. That said, it gets a 7.5/10 for trying.
