---
A woman gets hit by a truck and gets sent to the world of an otome game that she had played earlier that same day.

I love the concerned imouto excerpts at the end of chapters. XD

Definitely!
Feeling tempted to look for more..

It's uncommon, but yes it's one of those. Prinnies originally had this (which was translated into "dood")
 

I want Rehme to end her sentences with "dood."

Seems like Prince Eddy failed to pick a winner.  Adds a bit of perspective to your typical romance/otome works.

If you are going to try to bring this to reality, then separating family funds from the fief funds is also a terrible idea.

Just imagine that you are president of a country for life.

What do you live off?

You either get a salary from your position, or have to set up a company live everyone else.

Now, try to juggle the correct administration off a huge territory (specially with the inefficient and slow-ass tech of the middle ages, coupled with widespread ignorance, occultism, etc) with successfully administrating your own enterprise, AND not making laws that are favorable to yourself.

 

See the problem now?

 

There is noting wrong with a medieval lord using tax money to live, as long as that doesnt mean the rest of the populace live in the streets, so your dog can have castle in your castle.

I thought the separation was to stop the rulers from stealing money that rightfully belongs to the citizens. I mean, there were mentions on how Yuuri was wasting money on soup kitchens and dresses, and basically bankrupting the kingdom, causing taxes to rise, and all that other bad stuff.  

 

While I would trust Iris to not take too much money from her fief, the same cannot be said for other members of the family, or for future generations. In fact, I'd be willing to bet in 200 years after she retires, all her companies will go bankrupt, due to some descendant taking too much money from the companies, and doing a bad job of management. *shrugs*

 

I don't really care if laws are made to be favourable to Iris' business either.  I also think that there should be a salary for being the ruler. It's a job, I just don't want them dipping into funds that are earmarked for other spending. 

And out of this whole manga, the part I enjoy reading the most is the diary of a concerned imouto...

I would like to see that spun out into it's own story, it's pretty amusing on it's own

The problem with inventions in modern isekai story, often they invent stuff outside their previous expertise and the knowledge rarely justified in the story itself.

I happen to enjoy the fantasy of bringing knowledge from the future and applying it to the past. I like reading about someone "inventing" how to make chocolate. The story doesn't spend much time with the details, but you know it's doable. You understand that this is something that can be done with the resources at hand.

 

Sane deal for the double accounting system. Wanting to form a business and keep family finances seperate from the fief is also a fine idea. I've read plenty of other world, reincarnation, stories by now, and they have all come up with interesting ideas, from making ketchup, to curing diseases, to gold plating bronze items. I've seen them come up with interesting business ideas too. All these things get an explanation of how they work. We don't need the nitty gritty but we get some details and have a rough idea of how they are going about it. 

 

Income tax though? That is not easier than the current system. It's not an obvious solution. Iris spends her time explaining how taxing income, rather than charging entrance fees, and such, can help trade, and I'll buy that, sure. However, she doesn't spend a single moment explaining how to accomplish implementing the system, and anyone that has done income taxes, or, rather, hired someone to do income taxes for them, knows that a fiendishly difficult setup this is. It's the most complicated way to be taxed, that I can think of, and it requires a LOT of bureaucracy to keep the cheating to a reasonable level. It just doesn't jive as a reasonable solution to me.  I look at these stories as a guide as to what I should also be doing, if I was ever reincarnated to a low tech world myself, and I just can't picture myself ever using this, at this point.

 

I feel there is a better method here. Perhaps a sales tax.

This story is like the story of the rise of the bookworm only that it's more focused on business. The book worm story focuses more on the how-to from the bare basics such as creating paper.

I can learn from this manga for one of my uni units haha

You should be made aware that this insight into that is the sole reason I'm following this series beyond the imouto diaries.

I didn't mean anything negative by it, I was just saying most people will skim through those portions to get the gist, and therefore won't need to suspend their disbelief to enjoy the manga.

 

It's based on the light novel which covers these things... I for one enjoy it.

I enjoy this immensely regardless, but I'll pass on the LN.

The intricacies of income tax need to GTFO of my manga!
 
All joking aside, I don't think most people care about or want to know how tax systems work, to have a need to suspend their disbelief in the first place.

This is a fantasy LN/manga after all, so a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief needs to be maintained.

 

Hell, Iris is the pioneer of the modern tax system in this world. She can probably start things off with a simplified version of enforcing income tax where the businesses calculate the tax on the employees' behalf and deduct it from their salary. That would make it easier to monitor taxation, and would lift the responsibility from the individual citizens who are then left with pure income.

 

Small businesses whose owners don't necessarily have the ability to calculate taxes nor the financial wherewithal to hire a personal accountant can consult a public accountant who has learned the trade from the tax-funded education. I imagine with the tax reform, human bean counters will be highly in demand, and in time, the invisible hand will make accountant service highly affordable as well. There are some small details with everything that need to be smoothed out, but again, this is wish fulfillment isekai, so everything will work out juuust daijoubu.

It's also next to impossible to uniformly enforce in a feudal structure. Most "income" taxes were tied to property for a reason - it's hilariously simple in an era with poor record-keeping, lack of formally structured companies, and where the majority is self-employed/indentured/annual workers to just not report revenue.

Also, most people would not exchange money for goods and services.  You'd see a lot of bartering and such like a farmer trading hay to a cattle ranch in exchange for dung fertilizer.

One thing that surprised me was that Iris' plan is to create an income tax. Isn't an income tax really hard to manage for a country where most people can't even do advanced math? It's such a chore to have those things filled out every year.

seinen?

Shoujo or Josei because of Protagonist point of view, But the setting more fit To Shounen or Seinen, cause the interesting of plot and obviously the isekai genre. Such as Manga Black Healer of Another World

It is published in a seinen magazine. To be more precise, in Young Ace Up by Kadokawa.

Which is surprising since the source, the light novel, is in Josei. Haha.

seinen?

The author better not ruin the mother visiting with too much exposition.

Diary of concerned imouto should be it's own series

I would be a great one XD

that last page...

seinen?
