@koiwipa holy sheep I just reread it too and you're right! I mean it's not unusual for an artist's artstyle to be more mellow/smooth/round as time goes on (Shaman King, Bleach, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto etc are the same) but yeah she looks noticeably older in the first chapter XD

I get your point, but you can do that without the isekai trope. She came from an abusive family, that alone should've given her a different outlook in life. But even that is barely mentioned other than "Oh, I'm fine with this, my previous life was worse."

You do not need isekai to give the character maturity. Heck, she isn't mature at all. Like in one of the previous chapters, she 'decided' to climb a tree instead of climbing it because she's a kid. She expressed 'maturity' in this scene by trying to get herself injured.

There are plenty of fantasy and non-fantasy novels without isekai with characters that are more mature than her. You do not need isekai to provide maturity. Her character is not even mature. Her rebukes against her status earlier could be said by anyone, even my annoying 8 year old niece.

I read the 1st chapter again and she looked more mature in the 1st chapter. She is now shorter and younger. ๐Ÿค”

You know, she might as well be saying in that last panel "It would be nice if I could completely upset the balance of power of the entire kingdom..."

The point is ultimately so that she is less of a child. Typically it's only projected in her thoughts, which is not the typical mindset of a young girl.

And that's kinda it. Like Battle Through the Heavens, it only makes their thought process different to those around them.

The Emiel/Estelle ship is going well huh.

Emiel will probably have more blood on his hands soon.

@CivilSky : May I introduce you to Bookworm then.

The isekai is relevant to the story but isn't overshadowing the plot, in fact it's part of why the plot can proceed.

i wasnt referring specifically to this series, just isekai in general, and how some (primarily japanese) series reference the difference between the new world and japan quite frequently

By this point, I wonder. What exactly is the point of her being reincarnated from our world? This could've just been a normal fantasy and nothing would've been different. She's still acting dumb and immature, consistent with children, with nothing of the wisdom of having another life.

What's the fucking point other than bait and switch? It's the same as Battle Through The Heavens, after the first chapter, the isekai part is gone and forgotten, despite the quest which was the basic premise of chapter 1 still not completed.

@CivilSky
But this is a Korean manhwa, not Japan.

9 times outta 10 isekai is a premise, rather than a plot element, and can be safely forgotten about if it bothers you too much.

well

except when the protagonist keeps monologuing about what it was like in japan i guess.

why do they do that i wonder. the main audience is people living in japan. they dont need to be reminded. ๐Ÿค”

I personally think she is a child, who has her own unique mind and way of thinking but has her old memories from her old life injected in her, not fused or originally part of her, so while she can sometimes act like an adult she is a child in a child's body with the memories of an adult injected into her.

@Fuwasagi isekai is pretty much just a plot so she can act more mature and potentially attracts more readers. Her previous life, knowledge, and personality doesn't play any roles whatsoever in her current life :v
