Introduction 1 – Let the Reincarnation Ceremony Begin
Warning. What you are about to read is an Ero-Novel, an adult novel that focuses more on porn rather than an actual plot, meaning this novel contains more on sex, erotic plays, fetishes, and the like in a fantasy setting. The plot here is secondary and almost deemed as an extra, as it is in other ero-novels. If you came here expecting something other than that, then stop here. This novel is not for you.
The next thing I knew, I was in a completely white space.
“Huh? I was surely on my way to school. How did I end up in this place?”
As I recall, I was crossing the street, when suddenly, I heard a car horn and……
“You’re finally awake, Soichi-kun.”
And then, there’s a woman in front of me.
I was so fascinated by her figure that I even forgot to breathe.
The woman who just spoke is an incredible beauty that I could only describe as ‘otherworldly.’ She has lustrous pink-colored hair, long enough to reach her feet. She has sharp eyes that bear a mysterious purple color, and she’s wearing a white robe that reminded me of goddesses that I often saw in Greek Mythology.
What is incredibly noticeable are her white wings in the back, that made her look like an angel……no, a goddess.
“It seems that the movement of your soul from this world to this ‘interstice’ has gone well. How much memory do you have left? Are you aware that you have died?”

A flowery scent wafted softly to the tip of my nose and made my body tingle. Despite the woman’s surprise appearance, her body exudes an oddly bewitching air.
I wonder if this is what they call a pheromone?
In any case, just by looking at her, I could feel like my heart is going to explode.
“I’m not really sure. What you mean by “I died” anyway?”
I asked her, confused about what happened. Then, little by little, my foggy memory began to clear up.
The blinding light of the headlights looming in front of me.
The intermittent blaring of the horn.
The intense shock that ran through my body.
That’s right, I was……
I was hit by a car and died.
“Soichi Yano, 18 years old. Has a life that has no special features, a picture-perfect of mediocrity. Incidentally, you have no experience with women as you had never been in a relationship. I guess you died a virgin, huh?”
My thoughts went dark at her mischievous teasing.
Why do I have to be told so much by the person I met for the first time after I died? Was that really necessary?
…… I’ve never dated a girl, and of course, I’m a virgin.
“I’m sorry if that offended you. I’ve never played the role of the judge for the reincarnation system before…… I guess I got a little worked up there.”
“Reincarnation …… system?”
“But I’m glad. You’re the kind of boy I like. I was a little worried about what I would do if it was an old, ugly man.”
The goddess then regains her pure smile at me.
She had a smile that was too lovely; it was enough to kill a virgin like me over again with a single blow.
I could even feel my blood boiling in my entire body.
“I am Elciata. One of the pillar goddesses who rule over love.”
The beautiful woman announced solemnly.
“Y-you’re a Goddess ……for real?”
I couldn’t help but gulp.
After all, the divine aura that she──Elciata was emitting was enough to make me believe her words unconditionally.
‘‘I’ll explain it to you from the beginning. As I’m sure you’ve already guessed, you died in a car accident.”
…… I knew it. I am really dead.
I accepted that fact with a strange calmness.
This is because I have expected it already since my memory came back.
To tell you the truth, the feeling of “I knew it” is greater than the shocking fact of my death.
“So, this is heaven ……?”
“Eh, then hell, huh……’
“That’s not it either. This is the chasm of time. It’s a place where the dead pass through from your world to the afterlife.”
“So, I guess that means I’m going to the afterlife, huh?”
Elciata smiled as if she had called out my inner thoughts.
Well, she’s a goddess, so at least she could read my mind?
“But your soul has been specially chosen. From now on, you will live a different life, not in the afterlife, but in a new world.”
Saying that, Elciata winked mischievously.
“To put it in your world’s terms, that would be……reincarnation.”
Is that it?
Is it really the kind of thing that’s common in light novels these days, where you get a cheat ability from a god and make yourself a warrior and produce a harem in another world?

“That’s right. It’s almost the same thing as what is written in these trending light novels of your world.”
……so you can read my mind after all, Elciata.
Well, that’s fine. It’s not like I am having special thoughts anyway.
“So, let’s get on with the reincarnation process.”
Elciata approached me to my side.
Her costume, made of a thin white cloth, was faintly transparent to the skin.
If you look closely, you can even see the red protrusion on her chest and the black shade between her legs.
“Ugh, i-isn’t that a little too transparent for an outfit!?”
You’re not even wearing any underwear!
Contrary to her pure and holy appearance, the glamour of her outfit immediately caused blood to gather in my lower body.
Even though I’m in a situation like this, I’m embarrassingly erect.
I slouched forward in a hurry.
“Oh my, is there something wrong?”
But contrary to her question, Elciata just smiles mischievously.
‘‘I, no, no, na, na, na, nothing is wrong!”
Oh crap, that was utterly suspicious.
“If you say so. Now then, here. Please fill out this contract and this selection sheet and put your thumbprint on it afterwards.”
She spoke after a snap of her fingers.
A desk and chair suddenly appeared out of the middle of nowhere.
And on the desk were two documents.
One of them was a contract.
After a quick reading of the contents, it basically shows that it’s all about ‘I agree to the contract with God, and I will be reincarnated in another world.’
Well, I have no objection to this.
And then there’s another sheet.
“It’s just as you see it. When a person is about to be reincarnated, they can freely choose their own traits. In short, it’s the skills that are unique to a person, their constitution, their appearance, and their race. A sample list of traits is on a separate sheet of paper, but you can also come up with your own.”
I looked through the list of samples.
Race …… human, elf, dwarf, demon, dragon …… etc.
Skills…… swordsmanship, magic, appraisal, business acumen, internal politics…… etc.
Appearance…… good-looking, ugly, muscular, smart, glamourous……etc.
Traits…… great muscular strength, high magic power, increased luck, maximum charm……etc
Okay, I got the general idea.
However, is it really okay to make your own traits yourself?
In the end, after taking my time choosing, I ended with a total of five traits in my list.
“I’m going to say it here first, just because the blanks are long in that sheet, you can’t just combine three characteristics and merge it in a single number. For example, even if you fill up the #1 option with ‘a beautiful boy with excellent business acumen and the best luck,’ it is not considered a single trait but three.”
Elciata gives an additional explanation.
Well, you can include as many traits as you want if that’s allowed, as long as it fits in the sheet, that is.
“How about something like …… five traits becoming a hundred?”
“Of course not.”
I asked her just to be sure, but I guess that’s not happening either.
Hmmm, what traits should I choose……
After all, when it comes to cross-world reincarnation, I guess the usual option is to go ‘Look at me, I’m OP, REEEEE as you yeet yourself to your opponents.
Well, since that’s a thing, and this is the otherworld, where dangers are lurking almost everywhere (or at least, that’s what I was expecting), let’s find first a skill that would make me the strongest, just to be safe.
I looked for some traits that would be useful for living in another world as well.
I struggled with the traits for a while, fantasizing about what my life would be with these after my reincarnation.
And I pondered over it a lot.
“You can take your time thinking about it. This is the gap between time and space. We have almost an infinite amount of time here.”
I was thankful that Elciata wasn’t rushing me.
And finally, after a bit of an agonizing selection, I finished filling out the form.
“I’m done writing.”
“Please pass it here.”
“……let’s see, for now, I don’t have a problem with the contents.”
Elciata looked over the papers and then turned to me.
“Are you really sure this is what you want to have?”
Her gaze at me became sharp, making sure I take her words seriously.
“Just so you know, you can’t correct me later. There’s no turning backs.”
I think I’ve already put all my hopes and aspirations into these five traits.
I thought very well about it.
“Fine. If you say so.”
She nodded once.
As for my traits, they are as follows.
# 1…… Appearance: Immensely Beautiful Boy.
# 2…… Skill: Complete Mastery of Most Powerful Magic Sword Arts
# 3…… Trait: Maximum Luck with Women
# 4…… Trait: Matchless Vigor during Sex
# 5…… Race: Long-Lived Elf
This is what my selection sheet has contained.
Some of them I chose from the samples, while others I came up with the content myself.
I thought I’d be warned to divide # 2 into two since it’s the strongest of both sword and magic combined, but I wrote it as a no-brainer, thinking it was within the rules.
And it seemed to be within the rules. Maybe because it was interpreted as more of a specialization rather than the general one?
Well, to be honest, I always felt magic swordsmen to be really cool. There is also the fact that it gives me a sense of versatility. After all, you can’t be a master if you don’t know the basics of these two well, or at least, that’s what I think.
The reason I chose to make me an elf instead of a human is because I was a fan of their appearances.
Anyway, I tried to pack in as many elements as possible that I thought, ‘I want to be this way.’
Uwaa, I’m starting to get hyped up.
“Now then, for my final act, I’m going to grant you the Goddess’ Blessing.”
Elciata spoke at last.
“When one chooses to be born from a human to a different species, they are required to receive the Goddess’ blessing. It’s a pain in the ass to explain, so I won’t……err, the detailed logic about it is really complicated, so it will be hard for you to understand, so I’ll omit it here.”
“Your honest thoughts came out halfway through, though.”
“With that settled, let’s move on to the blessing ceremony.”
Ah, she totally ignored what I just said.
“Could you lie down on that bed over there?”
Elciata moves her fingers in a snap.
Then, a king-sized bed appears right beside me.
It seems that otherworldly Goddesses have a really convenient ability to bring out desks and chairs and beds: Poof, instant furniture out of the blue.
“You want me to go to bed?”
Still, what in the world is she trying to do?
“Oh, and take your clothes off as well.”
“The whole point of the blessing ceremony is that it needs a sexual act between God and man. You’re going to have sex with me now, and if you’re wearing clothes, they’ll get in the way, right?”
I was stunned to see Elciata still able to smile vibrantly at me after what she had said.
“I, what …… now ……?”
“It is what I just said.”
Elciata puts her face close, enough of a distance to kiss me, and blew sweet breaths on my face. “You and I are going to have sex, and I’m going to give you the best first experience you’ll ever have in your life. Fufufu.”
. In the web novel, Elciata’s hair color is black, but in the light novel, her hair color is pink. At this point I decided to select what is best for my work and chose pink in the end, matching them with the visuals to avoid confusion to my readers.⮌
