The Savior’s Book Cafè Story in Another World by: Kyoyka Izumi

In this charming tale, a woman gets transported to a fantasy world and pursues her own quest: opening a book cafe!

Tsukina is a single, thirty-something office worker whose favorite thing is curling up with a good book. When a god tells her that she must go to another world to become its magical savior, Tsukina isn’t interested. She has zero desire to go on some grand hero’s journey. So when she arrives in this strange new land, she decides to use her magical powers to create a cozy little book café instead. Her first customer is a handsome soldier who loves reading almost as much as she does. But when a fellow “savior” starts causing trouble, Tsukina might have to play the hero after all!

Right off the bat when I read the summary I knew I needed to read this manga…and it did not disappoint. I’m already in love, and invested, with this story and cannot wait for more volumes to drop!

We meet Tsukina a thirty-three-year-old bookworm who’s just living her life. Out of nowhere a blob, claiming to be a god, says “hey you’re a savior and I’m sending you to another world” to which she’s like “Um, maybe if you’d approached me in my early 20s but not now, I’m comfortable with my life and that seems like a young person adventure,” which completely shocks said god. She’s assured she’ll be going regardless but since he recruits a lot she probably won’t be the only savior in the realm so she could just kick back if she wanted to.

Realizing she’s going whether she wants to or not she negotiates herself a great deal which lands her in a well-protected kingdom overseeing her dream…owning a book cafe. Never have I related so fast to a manga. I mean imagine finding out you have to go but you’ll be given magic and you can just do your own thing since multiple saviors have been selected. Sounds like a dream!

Sadly only volume one has been translated and released here in the states but luckily we only have a couple months to wait for volume two! I cannot wait to see Tsukina’s journey unfold!

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance. Ratings: 5 Stars: Completely blew me away 4 Stars: Loved the story but didn't feel completely blown away by it 3 Stars: Liked the overall concept of the story but either had poor execution, had a lot of plot holes, or was written poorly 2 Stars: I struggled to understand the plot, poorly written, or just had really unlikeable characters along with a poor writing 1 Star: Horribly written, major plot holes, or extremely unlikeable characters and plots.
