If you've read Love-crafted, then you have an idea of how this story is shaped. The premise is that a young Broccoli Bunch receives a literal call to adventure while sitting in class and gleefully accepts it for the chance to explore a new and exciting world. Squealing with joy on arrival, she's rewarded with the class 'Cinnamon Bun' and shortly after the class skill Cleaning, which she hopes will be helpful with her hero's quest to cleanse the land of evil. Surprisingly, she makes a solid, if unconventional, hero. Polite, excited, and a part of a world that does not forgo darkness, she neither breaks from her friendly and optimistic base nor does the world bend to make things happy and sweet. It's a surprisingly effective blend of wholesome positivity and classic adventure.

The character is a complete sugar rush, but well written in how she responds to the less positive aspects of the world. The excitement is almost visceral, even for things as simple as ranking up her cleaning powers, and her naivete shines in certain moments (Vibrating wand of cure hysteria) without detracting from occasionally brutal problem solving within the dungeon. It's a tight balance to walk between recognizing the danger posed by things and ensuring that she never hurts anything that doesn't want to hurt her, but so far it has been handled very well. There hasn't been much in the way of other characters at this point in the story (excepting the nibbly skeleton), but I look forward to Broccoli sweeping into the just spotted fantasy town on a flood of raw enthusiasm and friendship. If the author's other works are anything to go by, characterization won't be an issue.

All in all, while the story is still in an early stage, it makes for an endearing read similar in tone to "There is No Epic Loot Here, Only Puns" in that the main character is an unrelenting force of positivity in a world that was not designed for them. If you're looking for a happy, somewhat whimsical fantasy read, then this is definitely something to keep on your read list. If you're unsure, but a fan of adventure, it's worth giving a few chapters to see if it agrees with you.

Dear lord, this is a good story. When I picked it up to take a quick look at the first couple of chapters, I was not expecting to get sucked in so much I found myself twitching at every daily interruption delaying me from reading the rest.

It's a bog standard litRPG/isekai premise - average teenager gets sucked into a magical fantasy world with dungeons and quests and handed a system - but the execution is superb. Main character Broccoli is a delightful and refreshingly well-adjusted bundle of enthusiasm and competent social skills, qualities which are apparently rare enough in her new environment to be worthy of their own class, the 'Cinnamon Bun'.

You might be forgiven for thinking that this story doesn't take itself particularly seriously, and yes, it does have a distinct lighthearted tone. Far from being silly, however, Broccoli is arguably a smarter, more relatable character than the average litRPG protagonist, using her ingenuity and common sense to learn, scavenge, befriend and problem-solve her way to survival in an alien environment, while remaining true to the cultural values of the prosperous civil society she was raised in. I have an easy time imagining this as a realistic scenario. So if Lord of the Flies ever left you with a bad taste in the mouth or a character's rapid descent into violence seemed a little too cynical to be realistic, this is the story for you.

But it's not all about characterisation. The story is easy to read and perfectly-paced, taking its time to linger and explore each fascinating aspect of the world before moving on. Like a good RPG protagonist, Broccoli leaves no corner of the world untouched, uncovering and utilising every secret she can. 

And what a world, and what improvisation! The world has a clear consistency to it, so as readers we can piece together clues about the societies and structures in it from relics left behind. The game system is just as well-implemented, with clear consistency and planning in its tiers and mechanics. Items and skills are used to creative, clever, and innovative effect, and it makes for one hell of a more satisfying and original ride than the more traditional 'swing a sword and get better at it' approach.

Cinnamon Bun is the kind of story that reminds you characters don't need to be prodigies to make good decisions, and that there are more ways to approach problems than with violence - though it's also wise to be prepared for self-defence. One of the most satisfying stories I've read in a while, and very well-written, it just hits every note right.

The same vibe as "There Is No Epic Loot, Only Puns", except the MC isn't a dungeon core and is a little less flighty. A fun read!

Cinnamon Bun is at the heart of it a story meant to bring joy. Our protagonist is a sweet girl with a working moral compass that does not let a vicious world of fantasy monsters bring her down, instead, she brings the world up with herself. 

She questions inherent violence and opts for a peaceful solution. It is wish-fulfillment by proxy as sweet Broccoli goes on an adventure. On a quest to find friends and spread love and we are here for this ride and what a ride it is! 

Now, up till here what I described is fairly standard but what is NOT standard is the fact that despite the class itself acknowledging plot armor it is not all-powerful, things can and most probably WILL go bad, but what is interesting is that she will not let herself be thrown around by that. Bad things happen struggles, grief, anger mistakes loss. They are there but in the end it a story where our character takes the high road, where she put effort into TRYING to make things better. Broccoli Bunch is an explorer, curious and adventurous and she will not let Bad guys get to her, instead, maybe she will make friends and find out that they were not so bad after all. It is the goodness of people that shines here through our main character in a World that tends to take a turn to the dark.

Slowly as you get to know the characters and the world, you will realize how much you look forward to her exploits, there is no grand plot here and no demon Kings to defeat (befriending him is an option too!) instead it is the little things that jump out. I will not spoil here. Just give it a try. It might take time for some, do not rush and slowly but surely you will be charmed by our Cinnamon Bun. 

But do not misunderstand, she not a saint, by no means. She is just a good person, curious and adventurous. She will fight and she might have to kill and that is EXACTLY what makes me so excited about this. She does not succumb to Edgy crap plaguing LitRPG yet she is not all good and perfect either. Mistakes are a part of the adventure, and I love her as she is. I hope that you will too!

 “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” 

-Plato

The 4 and a half are because I have not found many other characters that come to her level of complexity, a few but not many, but the story is young and I hope to see much more!

I did not mention the world and I don't I can do it justice, it is complex and full of vibrant imagery, something where many others fail. I cannot possibly tell you what you get, You just have to see it for yourself and trust me you will NOT be disappointed.

So here we come, together to watch as she brings some light to a world, with light hidden inside it, inherent to world and people. just obscured by the veil drudgery and apathy that people come to accept as a matter of course.

For the Stubborn here are some points why you should give this a try: 

  • A breath of fresh air. 
  • Lots of fresh world-building and unique twists to races and history
  • Lots of interesting characters
  • Filled with wonder and beautiful sights. 
  • Just do it, man, Broc's not gonna disappoint you. You can be friends with her too!

A must-read on this site, and a much needed fresh of air. A Cinnamon Bun filled with sweetness. 

Just read it okay?

My expecations for this story were exceeded and shattered while reading it, and thats all thanks to the MC, who is just tooo good, i hardly can handle that much Cute.

After getting transmigrated because of accepting a sudden quest prompt while she was attending class, our (Cute) Hero Brocolli Bunch explores the new world she is in, in her own way, by treating everyone with the power of friendship, unless they are meanies, which get pounded down!

 

Basically the MC is simply too pure, she acts friendly to everyone, even if it would make totally no logical sense at all, and it somehow works! Her innocence is one of her greatest strengths, since she only sees good in others, even if they openly disrespect and distrust her, though not to the extent that she cant recognize who is an enemy though! The MC is totally not an airheaded person, even if she may seem like it, she is quite capable at surviving on her own, with an healthy dose of common sense, though she is blissfully obivious about some topics, and i hope it stays like that!

Like every character gets swept along with her optimism, it is like a massive gravity well sucking all in and not letting them go! And even with her around, other characters are still well written, have their own characterizations which is quite clear to see, though even if they protest, they still get swept away by the Pure!

 

The plot? Well, its all about the MC going on an adventure to travel this new world, on a quest to destroy Evil, hugging all kinds of creatures and making friends of them!

The system quite fits here, it is a bit different than what one would expect from a standard system as it is more based around skill slots and levels, which are limited by how many Points you can have (and sadly Cute is not extempt from this).

For the rest, the world is like a standard Fantasy world with a system, though competently built but nothing expectional, still nice to see some of those twists to it like the dungeons, which are Weird and even creepy.

 

Near flawless grammar (for Royalroad that is) in this story, typos and such get detected fairly fast and thus corrected, i think i saw only one myself during my read, and absolutely had no problem at all with grammar and spelling.

The writing is just about amazing, the story is generally a lighthearted read, and flawlessy manages to switch to a darker tone and back, without even disrupting  the flow of the writing. Also just the right kind of pacing during the entire story so far, no complaints here!

 

This is certainly a story im going to enjoy for a looong time, even when constantly reading the most recent released chapter. It is just so fun and enjoyable to read.

Stop whatever you are doing right now, and just go read this story, it is certainnly worth your time if you like lighthearted reads with go-happy protagnist going on a silly adventure! And even if you arent a fan, give it a try, you may grow to love this weird lighthearted story!

Not giving this story 6 stars because it does not have enough chapters. Writing is refreshingly clean and intentionally easy to read. MC is a fun and unique blend of kind and outragiously optimistic all while somehow balanced on the book's edge of believability.

If you ever get tired of all those OP murder hobo Isekai protagonists, if you want a story that is cute without getting dumb and innocent without being naive, if you like puns and friends and adventures, then this story is for you. Cinnamon Bun is not a patsy nor an idiot, but someone who will defend herself only after she has tried to make friends.


Just read it.

The writing of the main character is slightly weak since the narrative keeps framing her as this excessively perfect saint despite all of her actions lining up more with a fairly normal "genuinely good person, but very willing to resort to violence when provoked in any way" adventure story protagonist. Sometimes it feels like we're being asked as the audience to issue the character the fricking nobel peace prize for not immediately murdering everyone on sight... and only horribly murdering them the instant they threaten her, something she does repeatedly.

Everything else about the story is completely amazing, though. A class deliberately designed to be inoffensive foisted onto an RPG player so she's always a bit wrong genre savvy, a system that's written to sound exactly like the kind of mean, petty dick that every system in gamelit is, a protagonist who is completely on board with the viewer's desire to explore the world instead of the author's desire to write a game book. Side characters who are interesting and have their own lives and concerns, and aren't arbitrarily hostile just to give the hero someone to beat on. Creative applications of abilities that come off as logical even when they're a surprise (hello, "cleaning"), with an advancement system that affects the story in meaningful ways but doesn't bog it down in nonsense.

Also, ghost kitten. Which is to say, no hesitation to focus on things that are just fun even if they don't advance the story or worldbuilding. Why a ghost kitten? Because it's cute.

And that's the big draw here: not the hook of the twee aesthetic so much as the sense of joy pervading everything. It feels like the characters are there because they're enjoying this, the author writes for the joy of it, and the reader is here to have a good time rather than watch something be accomplished. Surprisingly I think it reminds me more of Azarinth Healer than any other webnovel around.

... yes, I just highly recommended a story whose ostensible hooks are a Candyland reference and being super G-rated based on its resemblance to one of the more gruesomely body-horror-themed exercises is unrelenting ultraviolence on this site. Fight me.

This story has a happy (one could say giddy) main character who faces standard Dungeons and Dragons foes and tries to make friends with them.  So far none have survived an encounter with the MC.

After reading Love Crafted, I knew that I was in for a romp through a world where lucidity is just a minor roadbump.  This story lives up to that expectation.

There is something very wrong with this author (in a good way).

Very light hearted. Character feels very innocent, author please keep it that way!!!! The only negative that I have is that the MC doesn't seem too upset about not seeing her friends and family from her orignal world.
