This one was actually pretty interesting - from what little I've read - so I'm quite pleased that this one was picked up.

Hopefully it manages to be compelling as it goes further along Anime hyper

Yeah, this sounds like an interesting twist on the standard premise even beyond it being a female rather than male central character. It also sounds like prime bait for an eventual anime adaptation.

Might check it out.

At this point, getting hit by a truck is basically the isekai genre's equivalent of getting exposed to radiation in superhero comics.

IIRC, this was one of the female-centric isekai stories that were actually pretty decent. It had its weird parts, but it wasn't enough to break my suspension of disbelief.

Hmm, so this manga's source is complete. I may check this out in the hopes the manga will end up covering the whole story.

Out of all the announcements SS have made so far this week, this is the only one I'm interested in. I don't count the Magus' Bride stuff as that is a franchise I'm already interested in.

My hope is that, by some miracle, a series I have been asking for in the monthly survey SS have been doing gets picked up. Doubtful...but the week of announcements isn't over yet. Laughing

This sounds like it would be funny. I hope it's funny. The world needs a female-centered Konosuba!

That sounds about right. If we're not careful, some ambitious/hopeful/naive fans will start throwing themselves into the street. Look both ways, guys!

Truck-kun is everywhere!
Man these shoujo isekai antagonist reincarnation stories are becoming a trend in Japan.
Finger-crossed that they will license the light novel too.

Personally, I'm waiting for a light novel to adapt Truck-san's story, I think there's lots of people waiting to read Reincarnated As A Truck! Pedestrians I Hit Go To Another World?!, or somesuch genre-aware tale.

I really don't need to add more to my queue, but I'm a sucker for antagonist POV stories, especially comedic ones.
