Plot description:

Quote:
When the two girls meet, magic begins. Hazuki Kagimura loves stories, an orthodox girl who is overly imaginative. Because her relationship with her new family does not go well, the environment sends her toward the stories in which she spends her days. One day after school, Hazuki gets lost among the bookcases of the library, leading her to a mysterious school where meets Shizuka Tsuchimikado. It is a magic school where girls (called "mädchen") are selected by the magical texts from which the world's stories are born. Hazuki herself is said to be chosen by the book of Cinderella. In order to become a true magician, Hazuki becomes friends with Shizuka and begins her new life at the school.

You know, on hindsight its actually amazing we haven't had an isekai story with yuri vibes before (If there's some novel that does this, I don't know about it). It doesn't look spectacular, but it does look fun, and I like Hazuki already, and her "friend" already looks cute judging from the preview, so sure, lets give it a go. The only real gripe I have with this is that Kantoku's designs don't have seem to have translated as well in this as they did on henneko.

^For actual animated series sure, there is a quite a few isekai light novels that go the yuri route. Currently quite a few novels gender change the MC from male to female to go the yuri route.
I’m not really into them so I can’t give you a lot of info, a lot of them fall flat for me, then again I’m not into yuri really, but if the story is good I’ll keep reading/watching regardless.
I did try watching this episode though, unfortunately the story wasn’t enough to catch my attention, I’ll keep watching the next few episodes to see if it interests me.

Well this first episode was definitely moving at a clip. Though I can get wanting to hit that stopping point. Still made it feel a little hurried.

I swear if the MC's mother knew about all that magic stuff she really should have made her message less cryptic. Instead of "find your own story" go with "find the magical book, called an original that will give you powers and let you go to a magical school."

I stick with this one. The MC was a bit of letdown first but I will know that this improve, because I have read one or two WN/LN like this. Also, Isekai with Female MC for now is a rather uncommon where the genre is plagued with generic ones and others that try to make something different and fail.

Well at the end I'm only a fan of shoujo-ai and yuri genre, so also is that. For that I can oversight two or three tropes. Really I would like more Isekai or LN adaptations with female MC in future.

Then allow me to introduce you to the world of Web Novels that later turn in Light Novels with female MC in Isekai territory and others. Sometimes the plot is generic but fun to read, sometimes is interesting ideas but wasted and others is really interesting or plain fun. I hope for some of these for a (DECENT) adaptation in the future.

A downgrade that Isekai with female MC have is: if the worn-out trope of normal Isekai with males is "I'm in other world with OP powers and get a harem" in the female ones is "I'm in a otome game world where I'm the rival of MC and I have to escape of my tragic destiny".

Watched episode 2:

Now this makes me think.. Shizuka is trying to make Hazuki a strong mage, because she needs the help of Hazuki to win the torunament? - if that is true.. is Shizuka not strong enough to win the competition with her own powers?

*waiting for episode 3

Since the author's apparently dead, even if this thing is a masterpiece and hit, they won't be able to sell new light novels over it. The budget may have been adjusted accordingly.

And frankly so far this thing isn't, at least if the anime is anything to go by. The MC is kind of cliche, klutzy type . And yeah, of course she has a Super-Strong ability . At least the characters are cute, but I really must ask why people think the opposite color eye reflections make characters cuter .

As for episode 2, oh many, could they have gone for a more cliched development of the tsundere silent type saying exactly the wrong thing, then they make up within a few minutes...

At least it is better than Smartphone ... wait, maybe that's just because there aren't significant male characters.

Oh, I'm reading one of those myself, and yeah, I want it to be given a chance. At the very least it has to be more deserving than Smartphone dammit! Though it is disadvantaged by
1) being published by something called Earth Star rather than say Kadokawa
2) it has a female MC so all the males may find it a bit hard to put themselves in the MC's shoes (in fact, for the most part, males are not treated too kindly in that story).
3) in some places it is not suitable for imaging. Though the comicalization did a great job on concentrating on portions that are, and given how anime adaptations are one-cour these days, they can probably be quietly cut out since they are secondary bits.

As for male MCs in general, I've come to the conclusion that unless the storywriter intends a romance from the start, they do more harm than good. Basically, the female Acceptable Personality Gamut is larger than the male - you can have female characters take on male-ish roles much more easily than the reverse. There are a few places that only males can go, but they aren't really good MC personalities and so I cannot really consider them losses.

As for mixed parties, the moment writers let even one male into the story, it starts to distort. For one thing, the pressure is now on to make some kind of romance, even if the writer is no good at it. Further, even before the romance is on, the pressure is on to give the Male a disproportionate share of the really good abilities. Even if the author manages to avoid this temptation or even deliberately makes Male weak, the pressure is on to give the male character some good moments with whether his abilities would fairly speaking warrant that good moment pushed into secondary importance.

So, go right ahead with all-girl stories.
