I am not even halfway through, but let me just offer my opinion about this novel.

Translation: 4.5/5

  • Based on the dates of updates, the translator uploads chapters quite frequently. It is already a feat (in my opinion) to have translated almost 100 chapters in 6 months.
  • Translator also provides several footnotes on some culture-centered/not-so-common terms in the novel.
  • Translator does research on scenarios that are quite difficult to translate for the readers.
I really appreciate all the efforts the translator put into this work.

Story: 4.5/5

Th reason I gave this a read was because of the "yandare" in the description. I was curious. But I still thought that this was the typical "reincarnated into an otome game" story. Since I am a sucker for this type of novels despite being so cliche, I gave it a try. I was not expecting much. I basically have the possible outline of the story running in my mind. I was ready to give up after 10 chapters, but boiiii was I wrong! The plot was truly interesting.

Yes, there is the the same old formula of gets reborn as a villainous ojou-sama with guys falling head over heals for her, death flags, etc., but it was phased moderately!

In the chapter I am reading, there are only 2 capture targets that showed interest in MC. Considering the number of chapters, most of the time, all the capture target harem would have already taken a liking to our girl.

The arcs for the novel are all cookie-cutter formula: world introduction arc, capture target arcs, some grand arc, magic school arc, etc. Really the typical ingredients of an otome-type novel. But, all arcs are done accordingly. We do not spend a lot/less time on each arc. We get introduced to a capture target and destroy the death flags related to them. Surprisingly, we get a lot of development (albeit somewhat awkward) not only from the MC but also from her potential MLs and other side characters. We get familiarized with them to some point that it feels engaging. It was the right combination for me.

I really loved the mood the author was setting up for the characters and the general direction of the plot.

Another thing that I admire from this novel was the world building. If I have to say, the strongest part of this novel is the world building. Although it was a mildy dissociated transition in the start, the world building was done wonderfully. It is obvious that the author had done a lot of research in some aspects of initializing the world of this novel. There are integration of cultures in the real world that are slightly distorted to fit the theme of otome world.

If you are looking for a novel with romance as its main focus, then you might like this. Although, I have to say that this has a fair balance of romance and fantasy to be exact.

This is a slow burn. Our MC is naive in love. Don't expect a lot of scenes. It's frustrating, I know. But when romance scenes start, you can't help but squeal in delight.

It's the typical otome game story. But hey, you get more than what you bargained for!

This is so good! The MC is pretty smart and has a good mouth. She is able to escape a lot of the obstacles thrown at her, albeit barely. She also has a lot of skills in making the ML and other guys confused with their feelings. Truly funny!

However, the best of them all is the Divine Turtle!

I truly wish I could read the next chapters.

Translation: 3.5/5

  • It was decent. It had a very fun/childish vibe writing style. Not sure if that was how the author originally wrote the story that's why the translation came out like that.
Story: 3.5/5

  • A breeze of fresh air compared to other villainous ojou-sama stories. Though I had a feeling how this might end, it was a fun read.
Characters: 5/5

  • Both MC and ML were funny! I loved MC's internal comments! I had same sentiments as her during the whole story.
Overall: 5/5

  • Giving it 5 because I laughed out loud in the story. Truly a short story that invokes joy!
