Synopsis

One day, I died.

And when I awoke, I found myself transformed into a giant robot?! And I have to fight in a massive alien war, with the survival of humanity on the line?!

WAAAAAHHHH! I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS!

A-At least my pilot is kinda cute... that's right! I gotta do my best to protect her! And protect myself! There are ravening cosmic horrors bearing down on Earth, and I absolutely refuse to get eaten by one!

Do your best, Sveta! Your second life as a giant robot begins now!

      This is a gooooooood story.

      I can see that the author did (at least some of) their homework, coming up with alternate history for why the world is why it is. They didn't need to - they could have just said "SPACE COMBAT WITH ROBOTS AND ALIENS IN SPACE!!!11!!" and that's a workable setting. But no, backstory.

      And the backstory manages to find a realistic place to be inserted. Infodumps feel like you're exploring alongside the main protagonist instead. The author manages to make good use of the reincarnation aspect to set baseline knowledge.

      Perhaps the prologue is the worst chapter of the bunch. I feel a frame of reference is missing there - you don't quite know what's going on or who this person is.

      And as for reincarnated into an object, maybe an AI is a chickening out a bit, given that it quickly sidesteps the challenges of communication, sensory input and mobility that a reincarnated-as-an-object person might experience. But these are replaced by the main plotline instead. Additionally,

      Spoiler

      there are hints of mobility issues with her frame being old and that refurbishing it would take a week, so mobility is still in play as a source of challenge to write about.

      [collapse]

      The supporting cast doesn't feel flat yet, but I'm still in the first few chapters. The multiple-perspectives help, and they don't feel overused yet. You can see the chapters having prefixes for their POV. The S prefix is the main storyline; compare it to the total amount of chapters and you'll see that a healthy amount of chapters are dedicated to the protagonist. Even then, in most other-perspective chapters so far, the protagonist has been involved as well, so you don't have to worry that the protagonist will be left forgotten in a corner to allow the author to expand on space politics or something.

      TL;DR: It's a good story and any points I forgot to talk about were probably forgotten because I wanted to read more.

      This is a gem. The characters are lovable, the action is awesome and easy to follow, the tech and background are interesting and thought out, and Sveta, in an interesting take, is notably not the silver bullet to all the world’s problems. Instead, she fills a previously empty niche that then lets the other characters shine, which is a nice alternative to the OPMC’s you can get elsewhere.

      The series combines the grim, desperate, end-of-times setting of Knights of Sidonia with the shipside hijinks of either Heroic Age or Vandread for a blend that transitions pretty smoothly between tense action and lighthearted antics, of course with Sveta ditzing through it all. Fair warning, if you hate the cutesy ~tehepero~ character archetype, stay away because that is our MC. Otherwise, welcome aboard, recruit. We’ve got a wild ride ahead.
