The story was rather boring. Almost nothing happens. The romance leaves much to be desired and most of it the relationship development happens in passing. The author spent too much time on the exposition and almost no time at all on the climax. The main leads are both boring while the only somewhat interesting characters are shoved into supporting roles.

The only good points: it's an extremely quick read if you just want something to read to tide you over until the next update to something more interesting.

Surprisingly cute and lighthearted story with a focus on development, not war/battles. I liked that the ML didn't appear immediately and the relationship between the MC and other characters were developed first. Overall, it was a natural romance from arranged marriage to friendship to romance. None of the petty revenge stuff you find in other novels either. Very warm and sweet!

MC is a university student, so he got transported into another world, the one with magic and kingdom. He who has appearance so feminine, got mistaken as a woman and got saved by a royal gardener/magician

The fluffiness is strong on this series, MC is so adorable >.<. Not many of super invention from earth, just bento.

I am the new (?) translator of this novel, so I am going to be pretty biased.

I actually really enjoyed reading through the raws (using google translate of course), but I enjoyed it. This story is simple, cute, not too long but not too short, and just an overall fun, relaxing read.

Honestly, I am glad that there isn't too much detail (as that would be a lot more work for a MTL user like me). It gets to the point, it's somewhat fast paced, and it gets where it needs... more>> to be. Though I am a little sad the second half of the story seemed a little rushed.

My favorite part of the story is how some things contact, which you will see later on. It's kind of like foreshadowing, but still nicely done out.

Of course, I do love BL so I enjoyed this story even more. It has fluffy romance that I love, so it's alll good.

Overall, I hope I can deliver the story as the author wanted, and I hope people will enjoy this story as I did. Oh, there's a small sequel, which I plan to translate as well! <<less

Ahh I can't wait for the development of this one! The relationship between the MC and the gardener is so cute. Because the chapters are so short, he hasn't met the love interest thus far, but I'm looking forward to the moment as well as to how they treat each other in private. Will it be like the title, remaining indifferent to each other both in public and private? Ahh can't wait for them to fall for each other! Side note: I'm confused as to why people rated this a... more>> 1? The plot nor the MC isn't offending anyone, they're actually (both) quite likable. It's pretty early right now in the story but I'll go ahead and round my unofficial rating of 4.5 to a 5, to bump up the average. (4.5/5) <<less

I've read the raws till final, and here's my verdict.

In Aloof King and Cold (Acting) Queen, a young man was transported from modern Japan to a fantasy land. In the beginning, he merely lived peacefully with the people who found him. However, a twist of fate made him turn into a queen for neighboring country's king.

It was an adorable love story with myth-like nuances which will surely make you smile silly every now and then. However, the author wrote better in the first half of the story, more sloppy in... more>> the second half. The king was outwardly aloof, but the queen was not really cold. I can't help but feel that many more should and could have been told. It's like the ending comes rather too fast... or, probably it's just because I want to read more of the pair...

The score came down at 4.5 star for me --> rounded up to 5. <<less

Romance aside, I appreciate the goal of the ML to make the country better by stopping the war and focusing on agriculture instead. Moreover, the MC is also very willing to help eventhough he has to pretend to be a woman.

The ML and MC are definitely a match! Their feelings started from being friends and when they realized that they seem to fall deeper. They didn't think too much and just went with the flow. I just feel like their relationship is very comfortable.

When rating a novel, I really don't... more>> care about the technicalities. As long as the material is interesting, why rate it so low?! I enjoyed it and thus the 5 stars!!! :D <<less

The romance leaves much to be desired, which is pretty bad considering this novel has only romance going for it. The first 25 or so chapters were pretty good; decent setup and interesting supporting characters that genuinely made me curious as to where the rest of the story would go. Unfortunately, the remaining 20 chapters couldn't hold up to expectations. The romance was so rushed it didn't make sense- main characters literally go from playing games to being in love (with that level of emotional depth too) and there's just... more>> no sense of how/why they start to like each other at all.

Then the author tries to throw in some crappy dangerous "twist" that spans maybe 3 short chapters and yada yada. Honestly, it was just so rushed and forced I couldn't help but be disappointed. Especially after the first half of the story got my hopes up. <<less

The story was sweet and heartwarming. Recommendation if you want a quick and light read. There isn't much plot going on (besides being married and stuff) so if you want an in depth story... this isn't for you.

The summary I can say that it doesn't actually quite fit the story. The mood of the story is softer than what the summary implies and not that... intense?

All in all good if you want to read a quick love story but don't like much drama.

I think this is a cute story overall, but there's some parts lacking in the story and character development. I would've liked to see their characters growth instead of time skip (maybe?) but it is a short story. There isn't much of a conflict here as it only lasts about four to five chapters (?) (don't really remember). There's many cute interactions between the MC and the ML, that will give you sweets. It's not heavy fluff as well so keep in mind that you will not be getting... more>> any diabetes from this. Last thing is that if you're looking for some good *cough* *cough* drugs... You might find this one disappointing as the scene is very short and leaves us rotten people congested and wanting a wee bit more than what was offered to us.

But if you have time and is looking for a very quick read with not much drama, this is the read for you~! <<less

Gosh, I really enjoyed this novel. From the first chapter I read to this one, I almost have nothing bad to say about this novel. The MC and ML's love is pretty cute, even if it's a bit fast paced.

This is one of those light-hearted yaoi novels that don't really focus on drama, or that's at least how I have perceived this novel so far.

It's actually kind of refreshing to read a pretty light hearted novel, since I usually read novels/books with revenge themes in them. All in all, I... more>> recommend this novel! <<less

A very peaceful, slice of life ish novel so far. MC is adorable and I rather enjoy all of his friendships lol. Looking forward to the development of his 'cool' persona and the eventual romance with the male lead

Super fluffy and easy to eat!

It's... ok. As a slow sort of slice of life story that suddenly has a romantic ending, it's alright. The ending and the romantic development felt very rushed and out of place though. The main character was at least likeable enough to carry things along.

The MC quite interesting, has few charming points, and I enjoy read this because of him.

The ML not that interesting, there's not enough character development for me to like him more, and other characters feels more interesting than him.

And I don't understand why they can falling love?

... more>> One chapter they happily playing Othello, next they groping each other.

Urie x Haruto feels more logical pairing than Leonhart x Haruto. I can't even enjoy MC x ML pairing! Lol

Well, if you want some light read, you can try this (even though there's better light read out there, but go ahead). Even so, don't expect many fluff from ML x MC.. Lol <<less

The summary is very misleading-- the tone is far more subdued and less extravagant than the summary promises. We have a protagonist who transmigrates into a fantasy country of magic where we are shown a very low-key slice of life glimpse of his five years. Under the very weak premise of needing an alliance, the MC is quickly 'adopted' into the royal family as a "princess" and married off to a neighbouring country.

One of the main problems with the novel is the sense of disconnect. The writing fails to endear... more>> you to any particular character and the MC's personal angst and sense of presence is very weak so nothing particular grabs you.

However, the novel has its cute moments and I admit, the fact that the fantasy world accepts same-s*x marriage was a huge bonus even though the MC still needs to pretend to be a girl so really... what was the point.

Overall, a weak three star rating sums up this novel. <<less

The first time I read this I loved it. But now I realize how it doesn't live up to my standards of shounen ai/yaoi now. So by the 2nd time, I realise Its alright. The characters are alright, the plot is stupid af and the cuteness is alright. But even when reading the first time, there wasn't that much excitement and there is still remotely any sh*ts I can give about any of the characters because they all really lack that spunk. I'm actually slightly pisst at the king of... more>> the kingdom because of sending the MC to be queen, for the sake of the country that really doesn't have anything to do with the MC. But whatever MC gets all this crap responsibility and burden because plot.... so yeah it's cute but logic is wtf. <<less
