Story by FUNA; Art by Itsuki Akata
Be careful what you wish for in this magical comedy about the pitfalls of rebirth--now with a manga AND anime!
When she turns ten years old, Adele von Ascham is hit with a horrible headache--and memories of her previous life as an eighteen-year-old Japanese girl named Kurihara Misato. That life changed abruptly, however, when Misato died trying to aid a little girl and met god. During that meeting, she made an odd request and asked for average abilities in her next life. But few things--especially wishes--ever go quite as planned.
Praise for Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! (Light Novel) Vol. 1
"...I found reading this book an absolute hoot, and it was also nice to see a standard “other world” series where the focus is on a girl and her friendships and not possible romantic interests." --Sean Gaffney, A Case Suitable for Treatment (Manga Bookshelf)
"If you missed this one when it was released as an e-book back in February, it's worth picking up in hard copy – it works well within its subgenre and is also a nice break from the general tendency towards bringing over isekai works with heroes rather than heroines." --Anime News Network
