And to address the previous review, about the "forced romance" did you clearly not heed the yandere tag? Name me one yandere male lead who wouldn't be labeled psychotic in real life. This story is clearly appealing to those who just want to daydream a bit about a relentless pursuit by a man whose handsome, a prince and has high specs, what's wrong with that? It's not meant to be deep, there's no need for the parting sarcastic shot, who are you to judge what people read for enjoyment? And before anyone comes at me with "fantasy influences reality", well yes but if someone is building their entire world view on romance novels alone, you're either too young for the internet and need to leave or the society that is immediately around you has failed you and you need to speak with your school or your parents and adjust those views.
We're not fighting over the same thing, in fact I AGREE with what you're saying (ML is psychotic on real life terms, this novel is not meant to be looked upon as a guide to healthy relationships), my problem is passing judge on what people like to read in their spare time. However, you clearly state "... [the] high spec ML's I LIKE don't ever resort to...", which is great but so? Why are the only yandere ML's that are okay have to be the ones you like? Just because this yandere doesn't work out to be satisfying or what you personally think what yandere should be doesn't mean it's not "true" or "healthy" yandere. ANY sort of yandere in real life is Not Okay™, a relationship partner who is controlling and obsessive in real life is called an abusive relationship. As for attacking others, where in this entire paragraph have I attacked anyone? You've called me crazy, deluded, ignorant, and "don't live in the real world" for liking a fictional story. At best I called others sarcastic, too young or that their surroundings failed them if they are building their view of life on romance novels alone.
don't get me wrong, she does a fantastic job and I understand she wants compensation for her time and effort for translating. I totally get/support that and I understand splitting long chapters up, even if it's just for the pure fact you want people to support you on patreon. What I DON'T appreciate is how damn short the chapters are in the split up, killing the momentum of the story. Every single chapter is split into three parts, and those three parts are so short it's annoying. If you're going to split a single chapter up, why not split it into half? Why is every single chapter basically just 1 page of writing? I can totally understand and agree with the decision to paywall chapters that can entice people to pay if they want to read ahead and slowly release them for free for those who can't pay, but the decision to chop up the story to the extent where we artificially boost up the chapter amount waaaay beyond the actual amount just for profit annoys the hell out of me.
Addie and Mary are pretty much together from the beginning, even though they're not official until later on. The protagonist is also coupled off with the prince character from the get go.
Claudia turns pale instead of the dark skin she was born with from the blessing and everyone is much more accepting of her. Her reaction? Literally "What a pain. I don't want people doing a 180 degree turn and swarm to me." Complete with telling her mother and father to (mildly) eat sh*t once they try to cozy up to her. However I do wish she treated them even worse, I hated them so much...
accidentally meets the hero anyway and he falls in love at first sight anyways
dragged into ending up with him rather than the black bellied best friend anyways because she couldn't fight the fate of the manga
