Chelsea may be the eldest daughter of a Baron, but her days are spent enduring both verbal and physical abuse from her mother and younger twin sister. However, upon skill appraisal on her 12th birthday, it's discovered that she has a never before seen skill—[Seed Creation]! Brought to the Royal Research Institute for the investigation of her new skill by the Appraiser Glen, Chelsea's life does a 180. A big room with personal maids, a warm, soft bed to sleep in, and delicious food to increase her mana pool... She's treated like a princess! But of course, her younger sister Margaret won't sit by quietly as Chelsea is pampered...

Milligram launched I'll Never Set Foot in That House Again! on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" website in May 2019 and published an epilogue on June 9. Overlap published a compiled volume on April 25. Jirō Yūki launched a manga adaptation on the Comic Gardo website on March 27.

J-Novel Club describes Fushi no Kami: Rebuilding Civilization Starts with a Village:

Ash is an 8-year-old boy with apparent past-life memories, who lives in a remote deserted village. As he remembers leading a bountiful life, he cannot bear living in a world akin to the Dark Ages, where not even the internal combustion engine exists. For that reason, he needs to consult books containing knowledge from a highly developed ancient culture, that is said to have existed far in the past. This is only the beginning of story about a young boy who sets out to revolutionize the world in order to rebuild civilization and achieve his ideal life!

Amakawa published the novel series on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" website in 2019. Overlap published the third volume on June 25.
