Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Noble’s daughter Mary Albert, in the middle of the school opening ceremony, remembers that this world was an otome game she played in her previous life, and she turns out to be a character from that game. The Mary inside the game was a villain, harassing and interfering with the heroine, and was met with destruction at the end – the so called ‘villainous girl’s downfall route’. And so the obvious reaction is ‘This isn’t a joke!’ and carefully avoids the destruction end…… or not!

Instead she trudges headlong towards the destruction end!

“The one who will have the last laugh, will be me!”

Involving her attendant, Addie, the deadline is one year! Will she obtain the same result as the one depicted in the game!?

“I will embrace my destruction flag head on! Ohohoho!”

Ehem.

Please take note that this is not merely a comment to this novel, but a simple reply to a comment that has been posted by a another user.

A rant, so to say.

... more>> @pavetta, I have read your comment and had noted your concerns and, well, let's call it dislikes (?) About the novel in general after reading 3 chapters in.

Ah! Apologies, it was disappointment that you felt, wasn't it?

Now, if I may to make a rough summary of your concerns, it would be....

1. The confusing dialogue. Specifically onto as to 'who' as of the moment is speaking to whom and about what.

2. The logic behind mary's desicion as to why she played the role of the 'villainess', even though she knew of the consequences in the future if she did so.

Let's answer them now, shall we?

As for the first concern, I somewhat agree with you in that regards. I, too, when I just started reading novels online, had more often than not, encountered dialogue that does not indicate as who is speaking to whom.

That is why, I fairly agree with you in this certain point.

Somewhat

Let's skip that now, and go to the main topic.

The reason for her desicion to play the part of a 'villainess', even while knowing what consequences it may bring.

My answer to you in this regard is, are you an embicile?

Or maybe just playing stupid, maybe?

Spoiler

I seriously want to ask as to why you would even think that the conclusion to the question that you seek off would straight off appear at the start of the f*cking novel.

Did you not even consider the fact that it may appear in, I dunno, the f*cking rest of the 44 chapters you had not even f*cking read?

But fine, you asked for it, then I shall answer you as to why Mary chose to do what she did.

Its simple, really. It's technically just aristrocatic politics.

If Mary, a daughter of a prestigious duke household, which not only hold considerable power, but also a tremendous amount of influence in both the masses (the commoners, so to speak) and the nobility, marries the only son of another ducal household which is also on par with the Albert house, but is also considerably richer. What would the royal family think?

Two great families, both coming from ducal houses. Both hold considerable political power and popularity that rivals the royal family itself. And then suddenly they're connected through blood. It could lead to a coup de'ta, wouldn't yiu think?

It sounds ominous, isn't it.

I'll not elaborate in this that much as it involves a major part of the plot and its ending.

But my point here is, she Did have a reason as to 'why' she still played the part of a villain. Its just that you were too lazy to even continue to read the novel and actually understand the plot of the story.

Sure, the comment you posted may just have been your first impression of the story, and it may change if you kept reading the novel.

But please, please at least read until chapter 10 before you even dare to comment.

Your thoughtless comments towards the novel may misslead other possible readers in the near future.

So please think before you write

[collapse]

P. S

The alternate 'reason' you gave her. About her action being the direct effect of her previous life or so, is completely cliche.

I'd rather have the whole reason as to 'why' mary played the role of a villainess blank and left to the readers imagination, rather than to have your suggestion.

Yes, it may give her actions a reason as to 'why' she did them. (She already has one)

But in my opinion, it takes out one of the most unique points this story has.

Mary's previous life does not change her personality In any noticeable way whatsoever.

So if she did have that kind of backstory, it may jus feel bland and over-used. <<less

All the great reviews convinced me to read the story, but when I started, it didn't live up to expectations. the translation is okay, but could use a beta-reader here and there, and I dislike the fact that there are often several lines of dialogue and no indications on who is saying what.

Another thing I'd like to mention is that the summary really got me interested. I have only ever seen 'reborn into a villainess' stories where the MC tries to avoid the fate of the villainess. I found it... more>> interesting that this story would be different, except... there's no logic behind the decision? She decides, for no reason at all, to play the role of the villain and to seek her own destruction.

I wasn't expecting a particularly compelling reason, but I would have wanted something better than no reason at all. Maybe the MC lived her first life being overly nice to everyone and that led to her death, so in this second life she wants to be as mean as she can and take advantage of life. THAT sort of reason would be really good. Instead, she just announces she'll play the villain, without giving much of a reason as to why.

It would be so easy to just come up with a basic reason like the one I just came up with in the preceding paragraph, so that makes it even more confusing that the author wouldn't have done so.

I read the first three chapters before giving up. It didn't feel like much was happening. It's not that the pace is slow, it's just that there is not much content per chapter, and I'm pretty sure this is the kind of story where something important only happens ten chapters in. Honestly, I think it would have worked best if each post of the translator contained between 3 and 5 chapters, so there's more content per post.

I usually read between one and three chapters of a new story before making my decision, and while this story wasn't terrible enough to make me give up as soon as the first chapter, by the third I was feeling rather bored, only interested because of the cool premise and not because of the execution/story itself.

90% of the reasons I stopped reading are due to the author, not the translator. The translator did an overall good job (and I'm only talking about the first translator, MushroomPrincess, because I haven't read later translations), though some editing would be great, as well as an indication as to who is saying what in the dialogue, instead of long conversations without any hints as to who is saying which line. <<less

I've read this till the end of the second volume, and I have to say this story never disappointed me. (which is awesome, cause I'm a very picky reader)

You'll have lots of fun seeing an MC that chases her bad end only to fail and comes out as tsundere xD

... more>>
Spoiler

It gets even more awesome when, in the middle of volume 1, it is revealed that the MC is actually really smart and have a really valid reason for wanting her downfall.

It has been mentioned on earlier chapter that the Albert House is powerful, second to the Royal Family powerful. Thus if it goes on like that, MC is afraid that the Royal Family will trash the Albert House cause they're afraid/don't want to be overthrown.

Thus the MC, in her martyr-style way, decide to walk on her downfall route simply to reduce Albert House' power so that Albert House won't invoke the Royal Family's anger.

Awesome! 10/10!

And in the end of volume 1... go read the story to find out :9 #tehe

If you love Bakarina (Destruction Flag) or Bakamille (Otaburi), you'll love this one too xD <<less

The synopsis does no justice to this novel. You might think "eeh the theme is so template" but even the heroine think it so. 😂 When she realized she's heading to her destruction flag, she proudly embrace that flag and even willingly harass the target..... though sadly the heroine is a boke, so all she did have the opposite effect.

In conclusion, this is the story of the main villainess who tries to do her best as a villain, but fail miserably because she's too kind. Assisted by her ungrateful teasing... more>> butler whose main job is to act as tsukkomi for his master, she'll strives to do her best....... and fail lol~ <<less

Muu. I want to make a review but not on the story itself.

Story is fine. It's funny like most "turned into villainess" WNs.

My only complaint is the translator. Well, the update rate is pretty abysmal, but IRL circumstances can't be helped.

... more>> My problem is the word choices and sentence structure. Often times, the translator is using words like: hereto, hayseed, fracas.

These words are pretty archaic, and you'd see them in ye-olde-english. Normally, they'd be fine on their own, but some sentence structure makes the words itself hard to decipher.

Add on that this could proceed for paragraphs that parts of the story fly over my head.

Add to that, that most WN/LN translators don't ever bother to try and write who ever said which sentence. You know what I'm talking about right? Conversation that go like this:

“W-well, you see, the cafeteria! The cafeteria is still open, so I thought rather than buying a drink it’d better to have a tea after your conversation end!”

“......... It’s simply unbelievable, but I’ll buy your lie.”

“I’ve prepared Black Tea and cakes. After all, today is a celebration!”

“Celebration? If you’re referring to Patrick and Alicia’s engagement isn’t it too soon?”

See? If there were like 3 people in that conversation, you wouldn't know who was speaking what.

I'm not sure if the TL is literally translating archaic words, or if she is just being creative in her writing, which is if the case, she should just go all the way in writing Western Literature, saying who said what.

HOWEVER The TL isn't all that unreadable. You probably just need to reread a few paragraphs of the story to make heads or tails of things, especially to deep conversation you'll sometimes find in this story.

I'm still going to read the story, but this is all just my minor pet peeve about reading this story. I by no means wish to discourage the TL. Just that they go about it differently. <<less

This is another hilarious novel! Mary seems more like a tsundere best friend than a villain! It's so cute how she tries so hard, but she's just really a nice person to begin with, so the point is moot lol. I ship her with her servant Addie! They're like Team Rocket in a way. They have the kind of relationship that works in gag manga (^O^) /

It's very good, although I would say this isn't really a transmigration/rebirth novel. The novel starts almost directly before the original game protagonist comes to the school rather than the typical age 1. It seems Mary was quirky/levelheaded from the start and then gets hit with the knowledge that in another dimension/life, she's a video game character.

Characterization-wise, Mary is quirky but loveable and her slapstick interactions with Addie, her butler, are a joy to read! She doesn't fall into "all loving saint like protagonist" territory, and her bumbling... more>> actions are hilarious. Addie is just as enjoyable, jokingly disrespecting his master while also indulging her whims. The original protagonist is quite cute and Mary's attempts at harassment fall short quite hilariously and only serve to bind the protagonist to Mary more.

On the subject of love interests, that plot line ends pretty quickly as they get coupled off immediately. There's no love triangles, no other options, the pairings are pretty much set from the beginning. The only wooing that really happens is mostly Mary inadvertently seducing the protagonist into friendship. There's no political intrigue, revenge, diabolical plans, etc. It's mostly just a very fun story of Mary trying to throw herself into a destruction end but from the beginning you can tell there's no real way that would happen.

If you're curious as to what the pairings are:

Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

overall, rather than a "died and reincarnated" its a "realized in another life they were a game" novel. There's no lamination of an old life, no true and sudden change in personality, the only "past life" knowledge she ever really gets/laminates on is stuff that happns in-game or was game related (aka merch from the game). It's a good fluffy novel that doesn't try to pull any surprises, and makes an enjoyable read. <<less

My reviews aren't spoiler-explicit, but as the nature of reviews tends to dictate, it isn't spoiler-free either. It's best if you skim through if you haven't caught up with the translations or don't mind glimpsing into the story. This review will be updated if needed.

A fast-paced and short but sweet story of yet another villainous-noble girl. I find myself smiling throughout the chapters and smirking at the surprisingly not-annoying dense reactions of our main character. Mary, Addie, and the heroine and capturable character (s? We have yet to come across... more>> more) are all very likable, and there are far more hilarious moments than there are cringeworthy ones. Though they aren't as deep as I hoped they'd be, it's the nature of this story so I honestly can't complain.

All in all, if you like likable tsunderes (and I'm not talking about the type to punch or badmouth a character for the stupidest reasons) and want to have a light-hearted short read, then this is for you. Due to my personal preferences for plot, politics, and three-dimensional characters, I can't rate this as high as I'd like but I truly did enjoy this. <<less

I love the story! With all of reincarnated person always keep their secret and trying to avoid the bad end, she's rushing toward bad end and failed beautifully. It's basically about a girl trying her best to become a villain but turn to a tsundere MC.

A funny and sweet romance story, which have one or two particular differences with it's peers that this is not a reverse harem and the MC is immediately disclosing her past memories to someone! Instead of working alone in the dark like other MCs, she's working with her aide.

The author's creating characters with lovely personalities, Mary and Addie's banter is fun to read, Alicia's naivety and unpredictability is funny and cute, and Patrick's chill way of handling things are pretty much cool.

Mostly lighthearted comedy, but there's some dramatic moments inbetween.... more>> Well, lighthearted as it is, it feels like a fairy tale for kids. Which is enjoyable for light read. <<less

Hilarious read.

Highly enjoyable!

There are many translated japanese Shoujo Otome-themed novels in Novel Update, but this one is definitely among the top ones~

... more>>
Spoiler

MC: Sensible softie and a girl with strong personality! Also, she's totally ME if I ever transmigated into otome game as a rich daughter YOLO... correction: YOLT!

Remember Reika? She's totally Reika but with no effort spent to maintain any public facade (EMBRACE YOUR MODERN SOUL AND LIVE FREELY, DO NOT CONFORM TO UNWANTED AND IRRATIONAL STEREOTYPES LOL) because unlike our beloved Rococo Queen, Mary is baddass face-slapper with platinum spine, and stronk enough to face her opponents head on~

Remember Bakarina? Not as retarded as adorable Bakarina, but Mary is better in my book because she has enough brain to make sound decisions... Or not LOL. Her antics along with her forever loyal sidekick Addie are f-- hilarious!!!

Whereas other otome MCs work hard to stay alive, Mary Albert strives hard to meet her Bad End as The Villain! WHAT A PITY SHE'S TOTALLY NOT A VILLAIN MATERIAL HA HA HA HA

Her relationships with The Heroine reminds me of the camaraderie between Reika and Wakaba! Pfft Mary! Pretty sure Bad End is sealed off forever for you, The Heroine totally In BFF Love with you~ Furthermore, if she becomes Queen in the future, I see only easy and wonderful future for you HA HA HA!

Love Interest: Addie, highly-capable handsome sidekick/butler with apparent crush for his Mary-sama. Sassy and cheeky, threatening him with Master Albert is the only way for Mary to make him bow.

My question for Addie: "What the hell is actually hidden under your furnitures?!! P*beep*N?! Adult mags?? Mary's photobooks?!"

Heroine & Patrick: "May Your Love Be Blessed Until Death And Beyond~"

Also, Patrick the Prick XD What a great friend you are HA HA HA HA

Mary is absolutely adorable in the way she tries to become a villainess girl but comes off as helpful instead. I feel that Addie may the only one for her and her cuteness!

The story is simple but something easy to read without overly complex plots to make it seem interesting. Just a very determined girl trying her best to get towards the destructive end she wants. Characters would usually try and break any flags that appear but she welcomes them with open arms. ^-^; I really do enjoy reading this... more>> novel and would recommend it to anyone who wants to give it a try. <<less

Basically this story is about a person in another world who gets hit with a memory that she is the villain and the world is a game. Two chapters in I have no idea why she decides to play her part, seems to be "Because I can"- of course, the strange translation (which initially seems competent with the translator translating difficult words well) and poor editing (strange archaic and unused word choices, combined with seemingly random letters and the incorrect words dotted here and tehre) make it difficult to be... more>> aware of what's going on all the time.

There is no description of the surrounding environment, uniforms, the descriptions of the characters is very vague.

Got tired of it real fast and dropped it after the second chapter. Complete waste of time. <<less

Well, I totally fell in love with this novel at first sight.

In truth, my first experience with Mary and her story was in the Manga, and since it makes me laugh so much I decided to read the novel.

The fact is. This novel isn't perfect at all but have a lot of good points. One of them is certainly Mary's personality and her interactions with Addy.

... more>>
Spoiler

I liked the fact that Mary accepted her reincarnation in the very start, she is more intelligent than you think and also a determined MC.

[collapse]

Another really good point is: there are love development of another couple and not just with the MC. I'm not saying more than this but expect a sweet atmosphere with funny events.

I can say other good points but they are all spoilers so...

By the way, the story isn't perfect. I would have liked to now more about the background of the MC family.

Spoiler

I mean, Mary's father appears in the ball event, and when Alice is about to discover that she is the lost princess. Her mother appears just in the 'lost princess' thing too, and before the last chapters of the first volume I didn't have no idea that Mary have two elder brothers

[collapse]

The information we have about the kingdom is less than what I expected too. The novel don't work much on the scenery description. For a point of view it's good because we can imagine as much as we can, thought.

What I'm trying to say is that the story have it's own problems but you should give it a try because in the end I never got desapointed.

Spoiler

In truth I was really impressed by the fact that the Heroine must have work in aspects like self confidence in order to get a 'happy end'

I also want to say that Mary (MC) is a very smart protag whose awareness of her position will be revealed at a later chapter

[collapse]

This is the type of story where you came in with all comedy and light hearted stuff before you get hit with feels and plot.

The only reason I would discourage anyone from reading this is if they do not like a slow burn or would like a drama-filled novel. This is not a drama novel, but that does not make it any less interesting. Actually, because the drama (if there even is any) does not overshadow the characters and the plot, it is easier to empathize with the characters and actually feel what they feel; thus, making it more interesting.

Another discouraging factor would be the translation. There are a few faults in grammar, but the biggest inconvenience would be the archaic words. So either being eloquent or having a dictionary at hand is recommended.

Other than that, the plot and the characters get a 10 out of 10 from me.

I will repeat this for fellow readers.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING STORY.

SLOW BURN DOES NOT EQUAL BORING. GIVE THIS STORY A CHANCE. <<less
