We’re back with a new Webtoon feature, and today we’re reading The Perks of Being an S-Class Heroine. It’s a fantasy romance isekai, and it’s absolutely hilarious. I was in stitches while reading this. If you want an otome isekai that still ticks all the boxes you need but also puts a fresh take on things, look no further.
The Perks of Being an S-Class Heroine
On the outside, Ailette Rodeline is an adorable child prodigy. Cooking, brewing tea, alchemy; you name it, she can do it. But this little girl has a big secret: Ailette is a transmigrator! After dying prematurely in her past life, she becomes a character in a novel, in a world destined for destruction. With all odds stacked against her, Ailette must figure out how to survive. Fortunately for her, she finds her salvation in… an insurance package?
After replying to a suspicious message right before she died, our heroine finds herself in the Transmigration Bureau, where she’s promptly reincarnated into a high-difficulty tragic novel as an alchemist’s daughter. Thankfully, the perks that come with the premium insurance package she purchased are endless. From farming skills to divine power, Ailette can equip a number of skills to change the ending.
I am thorougly enjoying this comedy series so far, and my one complaint is that it’s still in the early stages of serialization, which means it will be a while before we can see the end. But let’s get into the details!
First of all, the art is so pretty. The colours are vibrant and the panel transitions smooth. If I’m being picky, there’s the same thing that bothers me with most series that have a whole lot of childhood chapters. The 8-year olds are all behaving super dignified, and the design sometimes makes them look more like preteens.
So far, we’ve not really had a chance to get to know anyone very well besides Ailette. Her family and Bianca are adorable, and I’m really looking forward to how their characters develop. Ailette herself is so proactive and strong-willed, I love her! And let’s not forget Lord Voice who Shapes the World, the system admin-turned-God. All the interactions between Ailette and the system are simply hilarious.
Overall, I’d say this is a must read; That said, it will likely be more enjoyable if you have previously read other transmigration/ reincarnation series, as a lot of the humour is based on knowing what the common tropes are.
