She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man (Light Novel) Vol. 1
Sakamori Kagami was one of the top players in the VRMMO Ark Earth Online as Danblf, a veteran summoner with the gravitas to match his elite status. When he falls asleep playing one day, he's transported to a world where the game is reality--but instead of his all-powerful avatar, he's stuck in the body of a cute young girl! He can't let anyone know that this little cutie is really Danblf, so he takes the name "Mira" and claims to be Danblf's disciple. If this gets out, he'll never live it down!
I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with the story
Knowing that the concept of genderbend stories tends to fall short of most people’s expectations, I expected a short passage about the main character’s initial shock, some adjusting, and then for the premise to be dropped completely.
I am very happy to have discovered that this was NOT the case, and that the concept of existing in a body completely foreign to oneself takes time to adjust to, with even other characters, who are unaware of the scope of the situation, making comments in regards to the player’s appearance versus their skill, making the world feel more “real”.
The premise makes it seem as though the main character is a full on “cheat magician”, but once a genuine main threat is revealed, even the main character has to adapt to the situation at hand. I don’t feel as though readers will regret picking up this light novel, and I am very excited to read more of Mira’s adventure.
I love how this story mixes two of my favorite genres of Isekai and Gender Bender. Poor Mira-Chan has to adapt to being a young girl while being OP is a combo I never thought I’d enjoy this much. Can’t wait for Volume 2!
