Breaking Off the Engagement… Bring it on!


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

One day, I was called out by my fiance, the first prince, Leon-sama and asked to come to the gardens of the royal palace. When I got there, Leon-sama and a lovely woman who clung to him awaited me… eh? He wants to break off the engagement? Wouldn’t that mean I won’t have to receive that severe queen’s training? Great!

This story is all over the place. It starts off interesting enough: as the empowering tale of a woman who happily accepts the breaking of her engagement, when in fact the other party just wanted to test her. After that though, the MC is suddenly this strong adventurer who fights monsters (sure, cool), then this whole slew of people smitten with her abruptly show up one after the other (um...), then there was this half-assed coup that ended as abruptly as it started and appeared to serve no other purpose... more>> than adding a few More admirers (?!), and the characters increasingly devolve into being mere gag characters (...). It's all becomes terribly confusing, and it feels like the author is just winging it at this point. <<less

So, this is a quick opinion after reading ahead in the raws for about 25 chapters or so. It's a really well balanced story. The world building is done well in the sense that every character that occurs seems to be an actual person (except Chris) with motivations that are, more or less, explained at rather appropriate times. Essentially, things are being so naturally hinted at that instead of saying 'oh, that came out of nowhere' you just go 'alright, now their past actions makes a lot of sense suddenly'.

Also,... more>> the heroine is great and not at all dense. She just suffers from the usual phenomen that no one ever tells her anything and then act surprised that she doesn't know about it. Even then, it's done in moderation, nothing overblown.

I'll upload the next ten or so chapters at some point since it seems like the current translator hasn't been active in several months.

Just a minor thing about the tags:

I took the liberty of removing the reverse harem tag since that tag appears neither on the original nor is there any such development as of now.

Incidentally, I have been breezing through these types of novels for a while. I love the idea of having a main character who is nonchalantly moving at her pace. It seems boorish that the releases are slow but I look forward to future developments as I'm sure many people share the same views as I. It refreshes my soul to have a MC that isn't lovestruck and obscure. Anyway, this is merely my own opinion.

The first chapter is actually pretty good that it make me want to read the next one asap, thought it seemed kinda familiar so I just hope it doesn't ended up like the other one.

This story is very typical for the genre and characters are incredibly one dimensional. On top of that is a translation that while comprehensible definitely isn't enjoyable - dialogues especially don't flow well and are very awkward.

I've decided not to torture myself with this poorly written cliche anymore. I suggest you do the same.

The fiancee of the main character breaks off their engagement in order to test her feelings, but it doesn't go as planned since she happily agrees. The plot is interesting, but the misunderstandings are stupid and the main character is annoyingly dense. The reactions and comments of the people around her all clearly indicates that her fiancee has feelings for her and yet she just repeatedly ignores it all. Even denseness must have a limit! Furthermore, all these misunderstandings could have been avoided if someone just explained the situation to... more>> her from the beginning. <<less

This is the story of a Highborn Lady, fiance to the Kingdom's Prince who 'broke off' the engagement with her, while in fact, he is madly in love, he is just to shy to approach her and made a mistake. In fact, she is a HIGH LEVEL DENSE CHARACTER, which I usually despise, but maybe because for once it's a girl who is dense, I found it funny rather than annoying (well I think that if I read 2 or 3 other stories with a dense girl char I will... more>> start hating it too anyway).

So it's nothing special really, it's kinda funny and sweet if dense girl char don't piss you off yet. <<less

A misunderstanding type of novel. Fresh giggles.

Prince actually liked her since they were children. Prince wanted to see jealous reaction.

There seem to be a lot of these kinds of stories lately, after Duke's Daughter translation started off, lol... but it seems interesting. I can't get a good grasp of the MC yet but I hope she doesn't just turn out to be a dumb bimbo.

I don't really know how to describe it. I guess if I had to I'd call this novel cute.

Most of the other reviews more or less sums up what I think of the novel though anyways, so make sure to give them a read.

Hmm.. Dense Protagonist or you could say a pure girl I guess. Miserable fiancee for her to not even able to look in the eye. Some chapter was missing in the index at the end so be careful. It a nice story but an annoying translator? Which dropped it and say "appeared like a storm and leave like a storm", I hope the translator got blown up away by the storm too. :P

It's a bit too disjointed for me. I don't have any strong emotions or thoughts while reading it. Everyone is just running around wanting nothing, except for the useless prince. It's constantly pointed out how much he's ruining everything by the our protagonist, the potatoe. There's a second love interest introduced, who's apparently much better who says 4 lines and was really strong as a kid too. The main character is just too strong and stupid. She has apparently been stronger than ten trained guards since she was like 7.... more>> The fighting scenes involve pushing 1 person and having everyone behind them also fall down like dominos. If looney toons wrote a novel, this would be it. <<less

A story borne out of a misunderstanding of the dense variety. Though, the MC can't really be blamed since no one ever tells her anything. She's also refreshingly independent. Not much darkness/angst/tension, it's a lighthearted story.

Finding it enjoyable so far.

After reading the first 22 chapters, I am hooked. This is a dramatic comedy revolving around a certain prince's pants-dropping level of hubris. It is with great anticipation that I wait to see how all this plays out. However with the story's (Excellent I might add) pacing, it would seem that the story could easily resolve in just 50 or so chapters, the raws have a total of 166. It seems there is more to this story than there might seem.

It's a nice, cute type of novel that is good for easy reading. I was not expecting the direction the story took after the first chapter, but it was really funny after I finally understood the twist that was not very obvious in the first chapter. If you don't get it, it might be confusing for the first few chapters.

Only one chapter but this looks pretty good actually. The hook (aspect of plot used to keep the reader's interest) is subtle (for a WN) so I'm actually curious to find out more as more chapters are released. Rating pending.

In short this story is just about a tomboyish girl wanting to get out of her engagement and freedom for herself.

At first you might think the MC is a airhead and dense but when you start reading it seriously you can see that MC is not that dense or airhead unlike another character.

MC is a understanding, gentle and pure so she couldnt guess the other factions love for her. In fact she only has goodwill. (I support the shipping of MC and Ryan. And some other imaginations about the boys)... more>> <<less

This series starts out like it is going to be quite generic, but it quickly picks up and becomes something really original. It seems like it could become a reverse harem at any point, or a romance featuring any of the different male/female prospects, but at the end of the day it seems to have a much more interesting angle.

The first 10 chapters are well translated and flow nicely, but from 11-51 the translations are spectacular and definitely do justice to the story as it starts to pick up. The... more>> second translator specifically set a target chapter to translate until (chapter c40 on here, or chapter 51 altogether), which means that the currently translated story ends at a very satisfactory point almost as if that were the end of the story. <<less

This is pretty good, but I'm not really sure where the plot is going. The main points are all explained pretty early on, with the broken engagement, learning about character backgrounds, and going more into the thoughts of all parties concerned. But it's definitely become just a slice-of-life kind of story, so I'm not too excited about the 166+ chapters, since I feel like it's too much for this type of story, at least from the chapters seen so far...

Not to say that it's bad, but nothing super special either??... more>> Definitely for people looking for strong, dense female MC and a mixture of romance, comedy, and misunderstandings! <<less

this will be my first "review" since I felt I just had to write at least something. The reason for this feeling is unadulterated surprise at how much I am enjoying the read.

I believe we all know our fair share of dense protagonists, and I'm sure we all have less than flattering things to say about them. The MC in this novel really takes the cake though, but not in the way we all know and hate. Not to mention, the reactions of people when they learn the prince broke... more>> the engagement is priceless. <<less
