A Dragon Idol's Reincarnation Tale

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

"Survival of the fittest is easier said than done...why couldn't I have been reborn a bit bigger, huh?"

If waking up in a new world wasn't bad enough, an idealistic teen starts her new life as a newborn dragon not by being embraced by a loving family, but having to escape two hungry kobolds wanting some grilled lizard for breakfast. Now, status screens obscure her vision in a hostile forest filled with vicious magical monsters, as two concerning Titles welcome her to her new life.

Equipped with fragmented memories from her past life and the game-like mechanics of her new reality, the young dragon must face trials and tribulation, undeterred by the reaper's scythe inches from her neck. Despite her challenges, she is determined to find civilization. For nothing will stop her from fulfilling her one true desire: to become an Idol.


Author Notes: I'll update the story every 2-3 day, if nothing major in my life happens.

The story is mostly inspired by Japanese Light Novels, specifically "I'm a spider, so what?".

Worth taking a look at despite poor early reviews

Reviewed at: Chapter 169: The Sarlenzia Trading Company.

I'm going to admit, I'm not entirely sure why there are so many low reviews for this story. Most of these were written during the earliest stages of the stories developement, to which I can understand some of the critism. It's nothing ground breaking, but neither are most stories on this site. I'm righting this review specifically because I think this story is worth more than what those reviews give it credit for.

The beginning is probably the worst section for being kind off dull and generic, but once the story got off the ground I felt the author really wrote something that will keep me waiting for updates.

I think probably where this story shines are the characters. They aren't exceptionally complex or unique, but watching them grow and change as characters is one of the things that appeals to me most. The author does a great job of bringing these characters to life and making sure all the important ones feel unique in there own way. Though, It does take a while for these characters to really be introduced and everything.

When the story isn't focused on characters the system isn't too burdensome. One of my problems with stories that have systems is that they often times dominate the story and try to carry the story on it's unique mechanics. After the first major section, the system fades a little bit from the forfront and becomes a supporting framework in the background rather than the focus, as I believe it always should. Over focusing on the system almost aways gets boring fast, but forgetting it exists makes it feel like the story was just wasted your time. This story does neither.

Actual word building is part of the stories strong suit as well. The author introduces enough to make the reader never feel lost, but there is aways a certain amount of mystery regarding to greater picture that we are exploring one piece at a time.

Honestly I don't find many faults with this story. I can see people not enjoying it for person reasons. The MC might not appeal to everyone, the early bit isn't outstanding(or even very good at all), ect. But I've not regret reading it and the author only seems like they've improved over time, which is more than what many can say about some stories that end up going nowhere. 

In the end, I just like this story. I'm not going to jump on a podium and start crying that it should be top 5 on the site, but it's worth checking out. Who knows you might enjoy it like I do. It will definitely remain on my follow list until the author takes a nose dive in quality, quits, or finishes the story.

Original review below as of chapter 23:

 

It started out pretty good, but I started losing interest when the parallel minds showed up. The constant switching and color changes were just too much.

Still, that doesn't make it bad. The writing flows well, and grammar mistakes are few and far between. The battles are well written and dynamic. 

 

New portion:

The author sent me a message saying they had removed my main criticism (the alternate minds) after much reader criticism, and asked if I would keep reading. I'm glad to say I kept reading, as chapter 23 really seems to be the turning point where the minds mostly disappear. With that gone, a lot of the MCs more irritating commentary disappeared, and its almost like a new book with all the good stuff from the original.

It's nice seeing the character grow, especially seeing her recognize and try to atone for her mistakes. Without the inner voices forcing the MC into a trope, her real personality can shine and I like it a lot better. Throw in some faithful companions and brief glimpses into some characters that will eventually be important, and I am more than glad I stuck it out.

Dragon Fear ? no, Dragon Shenanigans

Reviewed at: Chapter 23: I am Saori Segawa

As expected from a story with a Dragon as a main character, the adventure/action side of this LitRPG  is not the main purpose.

The novel has a clear japanese vibe. Cooking take more room than necessary. Cheat abilities from the start for a quickly OverPowered MC.

the novel doesn't waste time on explaining the other possible abilities and only focus on the MC's one.

We don't know much about the world since the MC is stuck in a forest, but worldbuilding doesn't seems very promising so far.

The way the Mc interact with other creatures is not very reallistic. She want to become a idol but slaughter anything that is not human because... well, experience? she doesn't try to find other ways to achieve her goal and show little remorse when killing children. Worse, she admit it all and yet keep talking about becoming a idol that share joy with people.

When she get cornered by a strong ennemy, deus ex machina save the day.

This novel can be enjoyed, no doubt. If you like Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear, this novel has the same vibe but with more slaughter and less cuteness so far since the MC is stuck in a hostile forest inhabited with monsters.

Grammar is good enough except sometimes the MC talk in German, usually for swearing, which i found annoying since i don't know German.

i also dislike the casual way abilities are selected, there is no drive nor style in the MC abilities build, she seems to just pick whatever magic is cheap enought to be bought and whatever can strenghten it. She doesn't spend nearly enough time testing things. same for evolution, she don't really care and evolve as soon as she can without ever thinking twice or trying to see if by training a bit more other possibilities of evolution might become available.

Author made sure that the status page of the MC can be open and close with a button which is very nice since the status page is filled to the brim with abilities and skills and, unless you are masochistic, you will want to skip most of it.

Character development is fine but not rich, i'm more concerned with characters' mindset. The MC's obsession for becoming an idol and desciption of her past life make me doubt her mental age ever reached 10 years old.

the story seems aimed for young teenagers. As i am in my forties, i am not buying all the childish talk and idol dream. But, if you like the japanese light comedy's style, this might work for you.

past chapter 20 i had enought and started skipping a lot of useless gibberish. The novel simply is not for me.

Overall

I've read up to chapter 26 and at this point, I'm calling it quits. First, this story isn't bad but it rapidly gets too Japanese/boring for my tastes.

My biggest problem is the main character. In the beginning, where they struggle to survive and learn about the world, I was interested. It was cool to see the MC overcome challenges and learn to survive. Sadly, the intelligence and maturity of the MC rapidly decreases as the story progresses which I personally don't enjoy. 

In summary, don't read this if you don't like:

  • Young and naive children as main characters
  • Anime or Japanese inspired writing and storytelling
  • Kill-to-level boring combat LitRPGs

Cotton Candy novel: slow paced and padded out with barely any developm

Reviewed at: Chapter 84: The Aftermath and Spoils of a Quest

Base concept is decent. That said, it takes over 50 chapters to START moving out of the forest towards civilization, and that wouldn't be so bad if the forest Arc was interesting, but it's not, and it's rubbed in your face that the plot is on ice. You get constant hints about what's outside the forest, while never doing anything or going anywhere. THEN, we get some absolutely terrible side story with garbage characters who don't matter, and you won't miss anything by skipping all of that.  We eventually get a plot twist getting out of the forest, of course because moving somewhere can't be simple, and with standardized travel padding,. HOW LONG UNTIL NAMEK? Anyways, the story finally starts moving, and the content stops. Don't bother with this novel until 300 chapters, unless you like reading cotton candy fluff novels with no plot progress and end content the second it starts moving somewhere. Recommendation to author: move faster or write faster, and drop the padding because it's poorly done with a few exceptions. The plot twist padding was somewhat acceptable. The main characters are overall carrying the novel.

Reviewed at: Side Story 9: This party has no future…

Overall, the story does exactly what it tries to.

It's a lighthearted story about a girl turned into a baby dragon, and her experiences as she traipses through the world with her quickly growing isekai troupe. She begins to experience the world while avoiding the gods and goddesses harping on her, continuing her dream of becoming an idol which was her goal in her past life.

The style and grammar leave nothing wanting, and I have only noticed a few small errors here and there. They were too small to really bring up, and I quickly skipped past them.

The story itself is pretty typical, very reminiscent of Kumo Ga Desu Ka, but that has a certain appeal to it in itself. It hasn't offered anything groundbreaking yet, but that is to be expected for a story like this. If you like Kumo, you will probably enjoy this. 

The characters are pretty typical for the genre and tend to follow tropes that already exist, but that also fits the genre and what the author is trying to do. The author likes to take each character and put a bit of a spin on them, making them a bit more interesting and fleshed out.

If the genre is something you like, you will certainly enjoy this. Give it a read if you have the time.

Girl who wanted to be an idol is reincarnated as a baby dragon and probably meant to save the world. Well, who said you can't do both?

Let me first say what I like about the novel: It's the characters. Rarely have I found a novel where the characters seem superficial only to show surprising complexity and this is one of them. Take your average isekai'd classroom with all the stereotypes you expect to see in a Japanese light novel, but give them actual personalities, hopes and dreams that may not fit their stereotype. Then add the MC who is severely spoiled and insecure without giving me a headache about it. Full marks here.

The story is just picking up towards some actual plot, so I've given it a cautious 4.5. It's hard to make out who the 'bad' people are, which I am pretty sure is intentional. She's maybe supposed to avert a dissaster or put something wrong to right, but it's up in the air at the moment.

The writing is easy on the eyes in excellent English, with some German curses thrown in here and there. Yes, there are mistakes, but they are not bad enough to interupt my enjoyment. I'm fairly sensitive to errors even while I can easily read past them at the same time, so you might have a different experience.

The style gets a slight minus due to the parallel minds. I didn't mind them as much as some seem to do and thought them a sign of the MC slowly going insane. Instead of talking to a tree she was talking to herself, pretending they were other identities. I could already imagine her being in company again and casually saying "Oh, one minute, I gotta talk to the voices in my head for a bit." Otherwise they pretty much reflected her own state of mind, so I'm not calling it more than a minor blemish for execution, rather than a bad concept.

All in all a relaxing and entertaining read.

Like I said, pretty good isekai.

The strongest point of this story is undoubtedly the characters. Very well done, very well flushed out. The interactions are genuine and believable, though the dialogue feels a little scripted sometimes (probably just me). I especially like how Hestia and Saori react to being reincarnated (not a gung-ho, where's my cheats, going to live a slow life as I please mess).

From a litrpg perspective, I like the SP system but their powers are very, eh, animey? (if that's a word and it completely makes sense given this is isekai) As in, rather than having a skill they perfect the use of, they gain bigger, better, and flashier skills (not that they don't strive for competency too). Their status sheets are a complete mess (don't bother looking at the full things anymore). Not my preferred cup of tea (I prefer basic skills sets used with maximum efficiency and creativity) but, again, well thought out enough that I can deal.

Worldbuilding is great. Period.

My only actual complaint would be the beginning. It's slow and feels directionless. Had no clue where the story was going for a good few chapters. That changes once Hestia and crew reaches civilization becomes quite enjoyable.

If you like light-hearted adventure, the power of friendship, and dragons (OF COURSE!), I highly recommend.

The characters and their interactions are adorable. The battle scenes are exciting. Am looking forward to if or how MC's idol dream is going to be used: like a saint, battle diva, or princess/mabye queen of the forest lead her people? Only time can tell and i for one am looking foward to many amzing chapters, twists, and evenys to come

A nice story.

The writing is clear, grammar is great, and the characters are very well written, with good interactions.

The plot is smooth, but a bit slow. But, it lays a very thick foundation for future plot progression, where the plot will hopefully be richer.

Final verdict: 9/10
