I Shall Survive Using Potions!

One day, the supervisor in charge of watching over Earth was taking care of a distortion, when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose her physical body. Not only that, but reincarnating her into a different, less culturally-advanced world is the only thing they can offer to do for her.

Not one to take this turn of events sitting down, Kaoru makes a demand: the power to create potions at any time she pleases, with whatever effect she wants it to have—and it doesn’t stop there either. She asks for a magical Item Box, the ability to understand and speak every language, and the same body she had back when she was a fifteen-year-old girl.

Using her newfound powers, Kaoru has to try and make a stable life for herself in a whole new world!

  • Oh wow, has it really been a year already since the last volume?
    I do enjoy FUNA’s works a lot, sure, the stories have their tropes and drawbacks but are lighthearted and fun.
    The one thing I never liked is the regular talk about boys. But it is 100 percent certain that FUNA’s girls all will stay single forever. So why the boy talk? It’s uneccessary.

    Oh, and btw. is there a chance that justlighnovels will pick up FUNA’s third series “Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement” by Kodansha as well one day?

  • Both links end up dead. Please look into this

  • I had some fun reading this one for a while and got half way through volume 8 but yeah… I couldn’t go any further since it started getting way over the top. I think the author has and is brute forcing alot of problems and trying to make things far more complicated than it needs to be.

    That said there is also alot of character irrelevancy in the volumes after the first, it almost feels like the author included them but then had no idea how to utilize them. Which then ends up the only time they get mentioned is when Kaoru says what a bother they are or how they screwed up. They also fall into “they just happen to be there” since they are watching over her or are always by her side.

  • I do tire of the author insisting that the main character is smart. By her actions she is not, and the only reason she succeeds at anything is either through her overpowered ability or the author bending reality so she wins.

  • volume 8 When?

  • Links not working?

  • Just realized it hasn’t even been a month yet, it just felt like it cause I was being impatient.

  • No more updates coming??

  • I’ve now finished reading up to the end of the fifth volume. I have sincerely come to like the characters, particularly Kaouru & Laynette–For their personalities and cuteness, as well as innocence that of Laynette’s particularly on that matter. Though I can’t help but ponder about whether or not it would have been better for Kaouru to not have proclaimed herself to be a Goddess in the first place over just keeping it more simple and lowkey considering her goals and intentions. The same goes for what would have happened if she did not…That said, it has become quite amusing but at times exasperating as well. In general, weighing what I have found to be the pros and cons, the piece is good and I am really fond of it and am eagerly awaiting for the next volume to come around. I thank thee author for this piece of art, though not all of it came to terms with my interests and such, to each of our own, cheers.

    • Additional Notes not too relevant to the plot and flow itself:

      I very am much fond of how the characters were portrayed, how I found them to be full of life in their very own way each, especially the Illustrations that were often enough just full of cuteness and vigor or the likes. Praise be to the author, artists, editors…To the whole team in general for a great work done. Sadly, can’t understand nor am able to get a hold of the original work. Nor can I get a hand on any translated copies that are out on the official markets and the likes…Perhaps someday but surely not any time soon especially right now.

  • Disclaimer: I am not fluent nor adverse in terms of any form of proper literature and the likes. This is just a simple analysis by an average joe type of person that can be subjected to bias.

    Note: I’ve have only finished reading up to the first LN Volume and have tried to summarize my findings thus possibly overlooking details.

    *Shows Promise
    *Has an overall interesting plot
    *Can be wholesome and full of cuteness

    *Plot progression can be too fast and could have been possibly improved.
    *Somewhat lacks a sense of depth.
    *Can tend to be really odd.
    *Confusing paragraphs e.g. no proper transitional verbs or clear signs of transition. (Partly also due to my incompetence to reading but still would have like something to clearly define transition between conversations or scenes.
