J-Novel Club licensed the novel and describes the story:
One day, the supervisor in charge of looking after the Earth was dealing with a distortion when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose her physical body. Not only that, reincarnating her into another, less cultured world was the only thing they could offer to do for her. Not one to sit down for the sake of sitting down, Kaoru makes a request: the power to create a potion any time she wants, with whatever effect she wants it to have—and it doesn’t stop there, either. . She requests a Magic Item Box, the ability to understand and speak all languages, and the same body she had as a fifteen-year-old girl. Using her newfound powers, Kaoru must try to make a stable life for herself in a whole new world!
Nobuaki Nakanishi (Koihime Musō, Shin Koihime Musō, Kasimasi-Girl Meets Girl) will direct the anime at studio Jumondo. Chisato Kikunaga (Don’t Hurt Me, My Healer!) is adapting Sukima’s original character designs into animation. Takayo Ikami (Penguindrum, Magical Girl Site, Yuri Kuma Arashi) is supervising the series’ scripts and Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Dr. Stone all three seasons, Jujutsu Kaisen) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.
