Yeah, this book is super funny! The art feels a little basic, without much detail, but it's fine for what the story is. I was actually almost disappointed because I thought Alice was going to be the protagonist due to her prominence in the cover, but if anything now I see it as another kind of meta joke among the many we already got. The level of ridiculousness feels like if someone took the misunderstandings from Nozaki-kun, the exaggerated bombast from Jojo's, and slapped them into the most "normal" isekai premise I've ever seen. I will never get over the opening chapter where we get the MC's perspective in the middle of his reincarnation, i.e -- actually getting BIRTHED. That completely set the tone for the rest of the ride lol

Is there a name for the adult man goes back to school in the body of a child sub-genre? It would seem less weird if I could say it in Japanese.

I loved this book (and the series); bald man doesn't even go to waste as he becomes a focal point in the third volume. Sadly it seems like 3 volumes is where it will finish. The author apparently has barely touched it in the last few years.
