The first chapters are basically just setting up the premise. However, it really makes you sympathize with the 'villainess' main character. Nobody ever told her about her bad personality or about how her surroundings were suffering from it. So when she gets a wake-up call she is pretty much horrified. Of course she would be!

The whole sympathy for the villainess thing is just so cute. She wasn't really trying to be mean, she was just misunderstood. Cue the fluffy life lessons.

Bonus for the high translation quality. Let's hope for more... more>> chapters! <<less

My Dad Is the Galaxy’s Prince Charming
November 20, 2018
Status: c29
Only 15 chapters are out but I couldn't stop myself from using Google Translate and keep going. This is holy cow awesome!

Yao Si mysteriously becomes a vampire ('bloodling', 'blood clan') one day. She doesn't know who turned her. A vampire war is going on and Yao Si is caught in the middle of it. Unfortunately she is a 5th generation vampire at the bottom of the food chain. Stuff happens and she goes into hibernation.

She wakes up X billions of years into the future. Vampires dominate the galaxy and their... more>> generation numbers are in triple digits. A number of misunderstandings interfer and mess up Yao Si's life. It is on an oh-my-gawd level. I somehow wonder about the IQ and sanity of some characters. Will Yao Si be able to keep it together?

Other than being hilariously funny, the story goes at a fast pace. I'm not sure if the 'action' genre should be added. There is action but (so far) only on a superficial level, moving the plot forward.

The male lead character has just entered the stage about where I'm at in the story, so I can't say much about him. Suffice to say he is high spec.

Anyhow, this is addicting. Make sure you've set aside enough time since you won't be able to stop once you start reading this! <<less

As of writing this, only one chapter is out and that is the prologue. This first chapter/prologue is suuper long. If it keeps this up it's going to be way meatier than it looks at first glance. It seems good though as of yet there is no dialogue and essentially no character interaction. Some amusing descriptions are used so maybe a comedy tag should be added later, if it keeps up.

Suddenly Became A Princess One Day
September 29, 2018
Status: v1c8
Though only two chapters have been translated so far, I struggled through the only raws that were available for free. Frustratingly, the MC doesn't meet her father until the later half of chapter 7 which means I was left hanging. Because of the status of the raws, the likelihood this will be dropped is very high.

As for the content of the first seven chapters, they were more like an introduction to the story. Slightly cute but unsatsifying since the actual story begins with the paid chapters.

Rated five stars for potential.

Advent of the Archmage
February 5, 2018
Status: c28
Plot: A pro gamer transmigrates into the body of a magician apprentice in the RPG game world. Realizing the time of the game is about to start, he is able to predict what will happen. There is also a skill system.

Characters: Main character is a planner and uses magic cleverly. By chapter 28, two potential harem members have been introduced. Those two do not have much personality but do have background stories.

World: RPG-like western fantasy, but written from a Chinese perspective.

Read this for lighthearted action where the enemies die without... more>> blood. Though the MC is leaning toward being overpowered, it isn't to the degree of one-hitting everyone; actual battle happens. <<less

The main character is reborn into a BL (boys love) world. Though she is supposedly a fujoshi who likes BL, the setting has become an obstacle on her way to find her own love. Her position as a woman isn't good.

Though it seems like she will eventually find someone the main focus of the novel doesn't seem to be her romance but an exploration of the setting. As such, read this because it's interesting and not because of the romance.

There is a lot of inner monologue and straight up explanations... more>> of the world and settings. Some people might not like that. I just thought the content was captivating enough I ended up struggling through a couple of chapters (ch. 2-4) in the original Japanese, using Google translate. This despite how lousy the Japanese machine translations are.

(Sorry SublimiSomnium, but why did you machine translate this to chapter 47 if it was only worth a 2-star rating? I guess we have different rules for rating...) <<less

Lucy Blanchett Remembered
December 7, 2018
Status: c2
The main character Lucy has issues with her memory. This adds both comedy and mystery to the story, but is also disturbing at times. Essentially, Lucy is an oblivious idiot. The information the reader receives is limited by Lucy's world view which leads to the mystery part.

Questions arise about what Lucy's background is and her prior relationship with Prince Claudio. What sort of magic does Lucy have and why was she admitted into the magic academy?

Though Lucy acts stupidly and you may want to laugh when reading about it, I... more>> end up worrying for her instead. Having bad manners when talking with a prince is no joke you know? Stupidity like that can't be attractive you know? Really, how are you going to make me believe in the romance tag up there? Won't Lucy just become a burden at this rate?

Well, this review is only based on the first two chapters. I guess there is time for stuff to happen. <<less

The villainess type character remembers her past life during her conviction event. Her current world is that of an otome game she used to play. Her engagement with prince charming is broken and she realizes she will die if events follow the original otome game plot. So far, so clichéed. The villainess (Eileen/Irene) decides to change the future by proposing marriage to the Demon King.

As of chapter 4 Eileen has met the handsome Demon King, Claude, and his two male followers, Keith and Beelzebub. There is no insta-love and Eileen... more>> is showcased as a "strong female character" (whether this will keep up remains to be seen).

It is hard to describe, but the logical reasoning of the writer is similar to Japanese management-style novels or Japanese novels which feature politics. Because of the clichéed opening I was reminded of Common Sense of a Duke’s Daughter. Hopefully there will be more about the handsome Demon King and less clichées later. <<less

Daughter of the Emperor
November 25, 2018
Status: v1c5
I started reading Suddenly Became A Princess One Day before this but I like this one better. Daughter of the Emperor isn't as frustratingly slow in the beginning. Apparently Daughter of the Emperor came out before the other novel even though the translations started slightly later.

For me, the point of either of this two novels is to bring down that cold and evil type father. The triumph of cuteness over evil. This has yet to occur but it had better happen.

Two Saints Wander off into a Different World
October 20, 2018
Status: c4
Two drunk girls/women are summoned to a different world when very drunk. They are met by a bunch of hot guys of different fantasy races. It seems like the story will be an amusing romp. The translation quality is good but it is hard to tell who is talking. Anyhow, I'll come back for more when more chapters have been released.

So I've only read a few chapters but I just have to write a review. Somebody please rescue the female character from the MC!

So he is a bullying victim who has a dark outlook on the world. Rather than transferring to a different school or some other non-violent solution he decides he is going to kill the main perpetrator. Typical thinking of a psycho. Later he uses a girl who is about to get raped as a distraction to kill an orc. Ok fine, that might be necessary but shouldn't... more>> make her like him.

He chooses to use summon magic (sic.) and support magic. His reasoning is he doesn't want to, or is too weak to, fight in melee. Despite the fact he has been striking orcs with bamboo spears and their own swords, he still doesn't think he could do it. Instead, he decides this little girl he doesn't know should fight in melee. I'm sorry? You think somebody weaker than you should do it instead? Though he doesn't think he is suited for it, he wants to order somebody random to do it instead. Shouldn't he ask this person to choose something she would be good at instead? If you are convinced you are bad in melee, wouldn't this person also have some idea of what she is bad at?

So the MC is an idiot and a psycho but what really makes him unattractive is that he is just lazy. He just doesn't want to fight himself because it is a bother. He could have chosen elemental magic to fight from a distance. Insead he chose summon (should be summoning) where he doesn't have to do anything himself, and buffing with support magic where he only has to re-buff every 20 minutes. There was no other explanation why the combo summon + support would have been more effective than other options. Did he pick this because he didn't want to choose healing for his summons? I can only speculate the MC thinks reality turned into an RPG where healing is boring.

Is this going to turn into a harem? That would be the most unrealistic with this lazy, psycho, domineering, stupid MC. Girls should leave him when they discover his sh*tty personality. <<less

This is one of my new favorites on Novel Updates. A sick girl is reborn into a healthy body far into the future. Unfortunately, her father died, and she has to masquerade as a boy in order to inherit his military benefits.

Spoiler

Following birth is training and measuring of her combat abilty. This gives the sense of planning for the future much like a crafting or strategy-type fantasy, where the reader's expectations build over time.

Some characters attempt social maneauvering to get the better of the heroine, similar to quite a few Chinese historical romances. However, this isn't the focus of the story. It never gets to the point where everyone is out to get her. Several characters are amusing.

Action scenes appear but have clear endings and don't dominate the plot. There are also some descriptions of cultivation practices.

Expecting a harem in the future.

[collapse]

Overall the novel has a varied plot which prevents the reader from getting bored. The mecha setting is also a breath of fresh air.

Though the main character is strong, she doesn't entirely cross the line into becoming overpowered. She even has a weakness.

The slow age progression might annoy some people. The world building is also a bit illogical at times. I don't think this pulls the story down though. <<less

A naive Japanese teenaged girl is transported to another world. The world, Evelier, is of the usual sword-and-sorcery type but has been through something like a zombie apocalypse. Though some attractive gods are encountered, the setup appears to be for a monogamous relationship with the last man on Evelier.

PROS: + A handsome knight and some handsome gods. + Post-apocalyptic setting rather than the usual fare. + Good translation so far.

CONS: - Main character is a naive girl. - Chapter length is a bit long.

Love it love it love it! Translate faster, I want to read the entire thing!

The way this is written, it is as if the main character is leveling in a MMO, slowly gaining resources and power. However, it doesn't have that game-y feeling. What it does have is excellent world building which explains the elements actually borrowed from gaming: The A.I. Chip is the reason for character status numbers, and gaming-esque monsters originate from magical experiments or other dimensions. Rather than being overpowered from the start, the main character is... more>> evolving little by little to become overpowered. This is very satisfying and you get to treasure every bit of progress done. <<less

I Raised an Obsessive Servant
May 11, 2019
Status: c6
It's great. Good translation, cute story. Edit: Now available to everyone without any login requirement. I would change my rating to 5 stars if I could.

The plot so far is how the main character has her family take in the male lead and sponsor him for magic studies. The ML is unused to aristocratic society and uncertain of his worth. He is very cute. There is no tragedy yet, only fluff.

Return of the Female Knight
January 22, 2019
Status: c3
Seems like it will be a great novel. Great translation, great plot.

After her death, the main character is sent back in time. She wants to prevent her family from being killed and picks up a sword to do so. As of chapter 3, she is moving to act and there is a sense of urgency. In other words, the story isn't a Japanese novel clone; it is Korean after all.

The crown prince will probably become a love interest. It must be him in the cover illustration. As of chapter 3... more>> he hasn't been introduced yet so I can't say much about him.

This translator puts tiny pictures of characters next to their dialogue. This particular novel also has several color illustrations so far. To me this was a great bonus which helped bring the characters to life. <<less

The Eternal World
November 21, 2018
Status: c17
This feels like an otome game story even though no such setting has appeared yet. The main character is the daughter of a count who remembers the 'common sense' of her past life. She begins to question the world around her, especially her family situation. Though this is a recycled plot it's done in a new way, giving a sense of mystery which makes you want to keep reading.

The translation quality was great for the first 11 chapters by Nekomori. The other translator, SugaminnyJP, tries hard and the text is... more>> readable. However, chapter 12 was a case of what the f**k and I'm not sure what was going on there. I can't help bet drop a star from my rating of this novel because I was put off and didn't get fully back in the story.

I don't think the original story quality drops in the following arcs. In fact, there was a surprising plot twist. It seems like the author is using the readers' expectations of the clichées in otome game novels, sometimes breaking away from them and sometimes not. <<less

Megami Buchigire

Since so many Japanese are being summoned, Amaterasu begins to reverse summon every time it happens. Hilarity ensues. Includes comedic stories about the summoned heroes, parodies of shinto gods, and an over the top prime minister. The perfect read when you want a laugh!

I can't wait to see what will happen when more reverse summoned people begin to affect Japan.

Akidzuki Rio is summoned to another world as their 'goddess', a hero-type character, but is overlooked as average and another girl is summoned as a replacement. Akidzuki Rio is abandoned by the royals and has to survive in this new world on her own. However, she begins to train with great determination and slowly becomes stronger. It seems like it will only be a matter of time before the king regrets overlooking her?

Hopefully this novel will be picked up again. At least the beginning of it is far better than some other novels I could name. <<less

Please Sign: Your Runaway Wife Has Been Captured
February 27, 2019
Status: c2
Why the bad reviews? The premise is interesting. I can't help but be reminded of A Slight Smile is Very Charming but the online marriage is set up by the MCs brother (is he her real brother?). It's implied he may have done something else as well when he borrowed her account. I can't wait to find out what.

The game terminology is a bit weird though. The translator uses gangs instead of guilds, bosses instead of guild masters, and zones instead of servers. Also, if the game depicted here existed... more>> in reality, I wouldn't want to play it. It seems too much like pay-to-win. It might be a setup for the ML turning out to be rich; that would be another similarity with A Slight Smile is Very Charming.

Chapter length is decent and the plot moves at a good pace. Hopefully more chapters will be translated soon. <<less
