The manga, It’s That Reincarnated-as-a-Virus Story is based on the light novel series of the same name. It follows someone who is reincarnated as a virus and starts to infect animals and plants in order to take control of a new world. It’s an isekai story, which means ‘otherworld’ and normally presents someone who dies in our world and is reincarnated in another.
The art for this story is really great. It’s simple, cute and really nice to look at. Then the story is just so bland, that it’s an absolute chore to get through. I haven’t read that many isekai stories, but I’ve read a few, and this is by far the blandest and hardest to read. I actually stopped reading around 50 pages a few months back and had to restart it just to finish it off. It’s not a long read, with very little text to read, but it still took a lot of effort to really get through.
The main character is just not interesting. He was a loner in his past life, and then becomes a virus and there’s nothing interesting about him. The most interesting character is the adventurer that he meets, who’s the girl on the front cover, but she’s only in it for one chapter. I know she’s probably going to reappear later in the story, but I won’t be reading past volume 1.
It’s very dull, hard to read, and really not worth reading. The art is good, and that’s it.
