Seven Seas currently holds the rights to the title in North America. They describe it as:
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.
A manga adaptation by Neko Mint launched in Comic Earth Star magazine in August 2016. The ongoing series currently spans two compiled volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on October 17, 2017. Seven Seas also holds the rights to the manga adaptation.
