On the plus side, this story is adorable. Not content with a fate of being shoved into a corner and forgotten, the MC sneaks out and embarks on a career as a knight. The MC is quite gutsy but also hard-working, and the missions she accomplishes are rather interesting. Plus, we learn that there's actually more to the plot.

On the minus side, however... harem. Too much harem. Instead of moving ahead with the plot or the missions, the author decides to shove in all these extra characters infatuated with the... more>> MC for some reason. It's distracting and quite frankly very annoying. <<less

The story feels a bit artificial at first: most of the characters feel at first like they're roles to force some emotions out of us, like the MC's best friend who dies, the boys who dramatically end up on opposing sides, the conveniently-placed female knight, etc. There is also the troubling fact that at first, none of the sides are likeable, and in many situations, the MC is usually the only one who seems to have a brain.

Despite this awkward start, once the direction of the story becomes more clear,... more>> the military and political plotline is actually quite interesting and promises much more. Also, the MC is quite unique: her optimism and out-of-place remarks in even the darkest situations make her absolutely charming, yet at the same time she's innocently ruthless underneath. Her search for and philosophical musings about happiness, in the meantime, provide quite a bit of comedy but also food for thought (she wasted no time crossing off 'marriage' for example).

I won't rate it yet since I think it's a bit early: though the story feels forced at first, it flows considerably better later on and shows great potential. I'll certainly be paying attention to see if it lives up to its promise. <<less
