Synopsis

It begins as a usual isekai story.
No, wait. It`s worse. It's otome isekai. And I`m the villain.
Of course, there must be some kind of cheat to make up for it. It's that kind of story.
And my cheat is... being a shoggoth. Which apparently includes being a genius with setting up all sorts of production. Because "engineered to be universal labor" backstory for that race, I surmise.
So... Screw it, full steam ahead. Let's see what I can make out of this world and it's ikebana-based magic.

    Holy sh*t this is isekai gold. Yuri, intelligent main character, interesting world building, it's all there. The power trip is delicious and cooked to perfection. This is going to be a top novel it already has tier 1 waifus. This is gold, literal gold.

    And so I wait for the next chapter button once more...

    Why does an Eldritch need to worry about the plot of an otome game they just transmigrated into? They’re an nation killer. 

    Anyways, the author is prone to info sumps that simultaneously provide too much and too little information. I’m sure there is a good story in the somewhere. If you can tease it out from the almost frenetic text, the  by all means. &Nbsp;

    Isekai'd Shoggoth tries to be several things at once. Strangely, it succeeds. We have a harem based on consent and mutual respect with some genuine polyamory. We have a well-researched and amusing empire-building based on technological progress. We have serious elements of adventure and political intrigue. And it is rather wholesome without getting naive. Honestly, I never expected this quality on Scribblehub. Go and read it.

    There's an old joke in the gay community, "What does a lesbian bring to a second date?  a U-Haul" and both the MC and all the love interests adhere to this as a tenet of faith.  Not only do women jump into the harem almost as soon as they're introduced, the plot also races like an Olympic sprint.  e.g.

    Spoiler

    MC declares war on another country and basically ends the war with one spell in the next paragraph.  The MC has so many irons in the fire that often 2 or 3 major developments occur at once, like building an entire confectionery chain or introducing high carbon steel within one chapter.  On that note she seems to genuinely be an expert in many areas and very meticulous and hardworking, which makes the plot a real blast!

    [collapse]

    The blistering pace is fun and adds to the light-hearted tone. There are two things I don't like and one minor gripe.  First, a lot of the 'cute harem/s*x' scenes are repetitive, lots of petting and cuddling and kissing every time and the scenes are pretty frequent and feel the same.  Second, Selene who is supposedly a straight woman, dreams of making out with the MC.  Now, thankfully this hasn't happened a lot so far, but if every character in the novel has their personality bent towards the MC just because OP MC harem novel, that makes those characters more dull.  But most of the characters have ideas and motivations independent of the MC, which is good.

    My minor gripe is at least once each chapter there's a sentence that's clearly missing the words "a" or "the".  It only stands out because I haven't seen any other mistakes, but it is fairly common.

    That's the bad, now there are two thoroughly enjoyable things about this novel: first, the MC is great.  She has a vast knowledge, knows what she wants and has her own ethics, and acts decisively.  Her flaws are fun too, the possessiveness about her harem intersects with villains without being overplayed into psychopathy.  She's the heart of the novel, which is probably what makes it good since it's almost all written in first-person.

    Second, the eldritch theme is overlayed nicely.  It feels like a Shoggoth plot meteor crashed into a regular isekai otome novel and upturned everything in interesting ways.  That scene with Moon near the beginning is especially good, and some later ones.  Really the eldritch is all over the novel and very good.

    Lastly, this novel avoids stepping in the pit trap of some yuri/yaoi or harem where all villains are [opposite gender] or all [opposite gender] are villains, and the other trap where all characters are gay and their only personality trait is being in shallow puppy love with the MC.

    One of the best here, give it a go!

    At first, I was skeptical. But then, I was like, "holy sh*t, this is good!" Basically, it's a great story, just keep a dictionary nearby.

    Status: chapter 42. a-talking we will do…

    Without a doubt my favorite series on SH. Yuri, legitimate polyamory (rather than a protag who’s just indecisive or oblivious), a unique magic system, hints about interesting monsters... IS hits all my high notes.

    For anyone who’s read Maou Shojou, rest assured that the two are distinct. Sure, both feature OP reincarnated lesbian horrors from The Beyond who gather harems of beautiful and powerful wives to corrupt, but that’s about where the similarities end. Where Makoto focuses on combat and conquest, Alyssa’s forte is development and expansion. While the badassery you’d expect from an extradimensional eldritch being does crop up fairly regularly, the main draws are definitely watching as Alyssa slowly puts her tentacles into all the pies and the interactions between our lovable harem mistress, her wives, and the rest.

    That said, the last bit is probably my biggest gripe. Most of the non-harem cast have had about 2 scenes of screentime across nearly fifty chapters, which just feels...weird considering the only thing she stands to gain at the Academy (besides a diploma she could probably test her way into right now, just based on her knowledge and achievements) are friends, wives, and connections. And yet, we’ve barely gotten any info on her classes, classmates, budding romances, or escapades (excepting that one time with that one professor). Even the wives seem to be losing agency somewhat. The newest ones I can give a pass, since they’ve explicitly been catching up, studying, and adjusting to their positions, but the original two are starting to feel like they’re either latched onto Alyssa’s side or completely nonexistent, with little in between. Kind of like a bouquet of flowers: each one is beautiful and unique, but though they’re nice when you’re around, they’re not the most... functional additions.

    TL;DR: great stuff, would definitely recommend, just wish the non-Alyssa characters got a bit more attention (especially the harem—non-harem interactions).

    I began reading  this out of curiosity, as I really liked the idea of a lighthearted eldritch horror Isekai and found it quite unique and refreshing. And all in all, the story delivers -- it's funny, it's interesting, and has a good worldbuilding and flow.

    However, the reason I'm giving it three stars isn't because the typos (about which the author already talked at length about and are understandable due to russian being the author's primary language, even if they break the immersion a bit).

    It's because I am almost a hundred chapters in and have absolutely no idea about how anything and anyone looks in the story. There's no description about the characters, almost no description about the scenery, I'm sincerely drawing a blank here -- I have no clue about how the MC looks, how anyone in the harem or supporting cast looks or what are their mannerisms, how the school looks, nothing, they're amorphous blobs (pun intended). I can't really visualize anything because there's no description.

    Only by braving the comments for each chapter I found some incredibly vague descriptions, like Moon Unit being "ethereally beautiful" and some other (I don't remember exactly which one) being... "redheaded".  It's frustrating and, sincerely, my single serious gripe about the story (but a BIG one, hence, three stars).

     Curiously enough, the most description I had were fight scenes and shoggotastic moments. Those are  awesome.

    All in all, it's a interesting read nonetheless, and I intend to keep following it until the end. Thanks for the story!

    I can't get past the first 3 chapters. Too much information with an enormous amount of random references sprinkled everywhere, sometimes it's not even English I'm here to enjoy the story, not the reference dictionary.

    With this many 5* reviews this might be a good story. If you can get past the first few chapters.

    Read this only if you're into hardcore info dumps, and excess narration that breeze through things with zero-little character interactions between characters.

    If not, I advice not to look into this work as I see myself quitting.

    The only thing I wanted to point out was that sometimes you seem to forget some words. Like "Rising against legitimate king will be expensive" instead of "Rising against THE legitimate king will be expensive". I don't know if you're a native English speaker, but this is just something to keep in mind, because while your story is very much readable, this will make it even better.
