Isekai are everywhere these days, but some of them, like this one, seem like a lots of fun.

The manga's story begins when a 32-year-old unpopular salaryman is transported alongside his handsome friend to a fantasy world, due to the whims of a naked goddess. While his friend has been transported without change, the salaryman now has the body of a beautiful girl.


To be fair though, the goddess did grant his wish that he made while drunk and self-loathing about his inability to get a girlfriend and that if he was going to have to continue being like that, then he might as well just become a girl himself.

She did also grant his friend's wish too. spoiler[which of course at the time he was trying to get the drunk salaryman home and had wished to get to the salaryman's apartment...]

Your comment might not be a spoiler but it's unnecessary since this part of the premise:
"Due to the whims of a naked goddess" already covers it.

Seriously, does every light novel have to have either its premise in place of its title or a summary of its first chapter in place of its premise?

The salary man kinda looks like Maes Hughes from Fullmetal Alchemist, may he and his Japanese VA rest in peace.

Oh, this one reminds me of the middle-aged office worker suddenly becomes the villainess in his daughter's otome game manga. (not the title, I forgot the exact one lol)
Only that this one is clearly a romcom and the one I mentioned is more like "old man tries to be a villainess but fails and becomes a dad to every otome game character instead".

Sounds like a lot of fun! Maybe I will check it out!

That is certainly a premise.

Oh, this one. I tried to read the manga because I liked the art but didn't get beyond the first chapter (I think I just got distracted maybe). Maybe I'll have another try some time.

Who would expect it to be yuri though, with this premise? Maybe this speaks more about the stuff I tend to consume, but to me "unpopular-with-girls man with a hot male best friend turns into a cute girl" comes with a foregone conclusion of "they will get together, one way or another".
