Synopsis

Sophia wasn't happy with her life. Due to some wrong decisions, she'd become really shy and introverted, to the point it hinders her from having basic interactions or even conversations. Not being able to talk with women at all, the only gender she's interested in, caused her to feel really lonely.

The girl wanted to change, but she got too stuck in her ways. After all this time, Sophia had become unable to do so without help.

One day, while she was busy complaining about her situation, she accidentally missed a red traffic light. This accident led to the end of the life she hated so much.

However, she was saved from certain death by a mysterious being. He called himself an overseer of the worlds and gave her a second chance in a different world where even magic exists. He also granted her some boosts to make her life easier. Hoping to finally change herself, Sophia asked him to make her more outgoing, sociable, confident, and the likes.

The overseer didn't just stop there. He boosted every single attribute of the girl. Every emotion and personality trait got altered, be it a positive or negative feeling. Her physical stats were no exception. This caused her to have the most literal identity crisis because she felt like someone else entirely. To make things worse, those emotional boosts aren't the most reliable ones, overcompensating or even failing from time to time.

Trying to deal with these conflicting emotions, Sophia works hard to come to terms with the new her while doing her best in the new world. Exploring places, learning magic, finally finding friends again, and possibly more.

Unfortunately, she learns this world's magic from a highly overpowered, easygoing, and somewhat unreliable teacher. This not only destroys the last bit of her common sense, but Sophia's application of magic also becomes rather sloppy, causing one weird incident after another. Not to mention that some of the inhabitants of her new home are a little different from what she imagined. An easy life still seemed impossible for Sophia, but for all the different reasons.

Info:
I don't think I need the content warnings. It's a tame story in that regard, (I think?) but better safe than sorry.

      Let's see first disclaimer I don't write review options and try to keep them as objective as possible so my personal enjoyment isn't a huge factor in them. With that out of the way onto the review.

      Plot N/A:

      • Since this is a character driven slice of life I'm not going to include it in my rating. But if you want any details it's mostly used to further character development and give them direction and is overall unimportant to the story as a whole.

      Characters: 5 stars

      • Since this is a slice of life I'll be focusing on this subject a lot
      • Overall: All the characters minus the humans are at least likeable and I consider the characters a strong suit of the series. 
      • Humans: The humans are intentionally annoying and while exaggerated their superiority complex seems to stem from the fact that they're super weak and are overcompensating due to feeling of inferiority which makes sense in it's own way. 
      • Sophie: The protagonist of the series her over the top emotions are written in a way that makes them endearing rather than annoying and she's just plain cute overall. I find her struggles relatable due to my own experiences and that adds to my enjoyment of the series. While she is OP and tends to show it off due to her impulsiveness she doesn't let it go to her head and doesn't feel like a self insert due to having an ACTUAL PERSONALITY. Shocker am I right. Her outbursts come off as cute rather than annoying so I've gotta give props to the author for pulling that off as it's not easy to do so.
      • Female Lead: Without spoiling stuff the relationship between Sophie and the female lead is adorable and they are perfect for each other. There's none of the rampant (and often pointless) toxicity that is present in way to many romance novels. Even before they get together their relationship is great and fun to watch. More importantly it doesn't feel dragged out up to the confession like many romance novels do.
      • Fen: Despite being pretty much the third wheel once the female lead shows up he genuinely cares about sophie and the female lead and comes off as sort of a cool older brother type rather than a teacher.
      • Minor Characters: While not much time is spent on developing the minor characters they are all fun in their own right

      World 4 stars: 

      • Magic: The magic system is somewhat interesting but not super unique. Pretty much anything is possible with magic assuming you have enough magic energy and a good visualization as proven by Sophie numerous times but most people don't seem to get that. Even the female lead doesn't understand that until she runs into Fen and Sophie. Magic seems to be finicky in some ways in that it takes what you want to do very literally. I can't go into any details without spoilers but it does cause trouble for the MC a few times. 
      • Setting: It's your typical high fantasy setting, many races, castles, villages ect. So while not super creative it fits and it's not really meant to be the focus of the series anyways.

      Pacing: 5 stars

      • Pacing is an essential aspect of any story a poorly paced story can feel many times it's length or unnecessarily short. That being said the pacing is great it didn't give the whole "get on with it already" feel but didn't feel that rushed either. There were a few minor places where the pacing was off but overall it's a solid 5 stars.

      Spelling and Grammar: 4

      • I didn't notice any glaring typos and the grammar was solid. There were a few minor typos here and there but many of those were quickly corrected by the author when pointed out. The ones left over were so minor that they didn't really take away from the story or my ability to read smoothly.

      Speed and consistency of updates:  5

      • The author keeps up a solid pace of 1 chapter every 1-2 days and the chapters are a more than reasonable length and quality for that pace. Cliffhangers are kept to a minimum as well.

      Overall rating 4.6 / 5 rounded up to 5

      A fun novel to read. The main character is OP, but the interactions between her and the other characters makes it enjoyable (especially Maya). The romance takes quite a long time to get fully going but once it does it is worth it.

      One thing that I've heard that people don't like is that the "human race" in this novel are annoying. Basically, they are super arrogant and idiotic, despite, more or less, being the weakest race. Personally, though, I quite enjoyed that aspect. It made me feel the world more real - not every race is super positive and happy. It also makes it so there is overwhelmingly more fluff rather than normal humans in the story.

      Regarding personality changes - this is, for me, what made this novel stand out from the rest. These "overcompensating" personality lines made it much more fun to read Sophia's journey. How she sometimes got super embarrassed and her brain just turned into mush for a while was hilarious for me.

      I recommend you try reading it for yourself to see if you like it.
