Ever since she was a child, Itaka Izumi dreamed of being transported into a world of medieval fantasy, where to live her life as a brave hero by the sword. One day, by a miracle, Izumi actually gets her way.
Only—she's a child no more...

Famous knight princess Yuliana escapes the kingdom of Langoria, defying the king and the law, in an effort to save her world from a prophecy of doom. Caught in a bind, she is saved by a champion, one summoned from another world.
But definitely not the kind of a champion she wanted...

By forces of circumstances, the two women end up journeying together through the deceitful world of Ortho, where the greatest threat might not be a beast or a monster, but fellow man.

This is good. Pretty much everything in this story is on a higher level than what you usually see as rated at 5 stars on RRL. Only downside is the relative shortness of the story, but I'm a sucker for extremely long series so that's that.

Note: As the author says, there is mature content. That said, it is not there for no reason, and adds to the story.

Finally a Heroine past her 38th

the review title describes the story more aptly than the book's title.

an isekai otaku girl forgoes her life and waits for her transmigration and to get chosen and be prepared she tries and learns variety of skills, techniques and knowledge on how to be a hero in medieval setting and she finally gets her wish fulfilled but it's a bit too late as she's already a kissless virgin sage in her mid life crisis.

the story is fun because of the interaction between characters and them acting their roles. it's more of konosuba in a different settings with real life drama.

That was a great story that I hope to see more of. I love how Izumi makes constant videogame references though she didn't mention Dark Souls sadly. The group is pretty good together and each character has good development while also being intelligent and realistic.

Criminally overlooked

I'm not sure why this story has so little views, because it is absolutely amazing. I can only presume that it is because of the short amount of chapters, which is a non-issue. The chapters are all quite long and I've seen plenty of stories floating around 30-40 chapters that are shorter than this one.

 

It's hard to describe what about this story makes it so great. The author starts with the very tired trope of a summoned hero and makes it fresh. The dynamic between the small cast of characters is amazing. The dialogue and comedy elements of the story are handled especially smoothly. None of the stilted dialogue or flat jokes you see all over the place on RRL.

 

tl;dr:

every aspect of this story is fantastic and the only improvement I could imagine would be a second volume.

Oi, why aren't more people reading this?

This is honestly a gem.

Style: The writing is really good, like seriously good.

Story: The story is pretty typical hero summoning, but there are twists that are quite interesting.

Grammar: Almost perfect.

Character: I really enjoy the characters, especially the main character. They motivations of each one are quite nice too, and everyone is engaging to read.

amazing! i recommend this

Just wow! the unsuspecting title or modest description made me put this on the lower end of the readlist but 
the mc really contains a broad combination of characteristics which give combined with the engaging way the situations develop and you are introduced to the world and the characters... i just couldn't help myself but binge read this.
Even though the chapters number few, they are freaking long! 

and it has sequels *,,,* completed sequels  drool
