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:
Spoiler

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.

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

The story is... meh. For the first few chapters I thought it was an interesting storyline, but I was very disappointed. MC has a lot of choices for a love interest, but she doesn't seem to be attracted to anyone. Everyone else seems to be falling in love except her, which makes the story quite dull. It's like talking to a wall. The plot is very, very, very repetitive.

Also, I don't think there will be any closure since I think the author dropped the novel.

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.

This might worth 4 star if it ended with 20-ish chapter. The main idea is interesting, but after that, the story starts to drag a lot and lost it's charm. At chapter 40, the characters are still as boring and lifeless as ever; very 1 dimensional. I can't sympathize with them at all. The plot is paper thin, the scenes are boring, and in later chapters, I can't help but to skip paragraph to (try to find) the exciting stuff—not like there's any, mostly.

Dropping this from reading list.

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

After reaching chapter 34, the end of the first arc, I can only continue to be dissapointed in many of the male characters. The main two love interests, Leon and Chris, seem to both take Ririina/Lillina for granted, while all the side characters from family to royalty involved, are constantly suprised at her not knowing something that was kept secret from her.

Spoiler

Everyones constant suprise when Lillina thinks Leon hates her, when all he has ever done is avoid her and attend other girls at parties, and then finally calling an anullment of their engagement. From an outsiders perspectice it makes sense that Prince Leon was just timid, embarrassed and wanted to see Liliina jealous. But anyone in her place would only see an annoyed Prince forced into a marriage he did not want.

Next would be Chris, the third (or second, doesn't really matter so didn't remember) prince of a neighboring country that is a spoilt brat. He seduces both Liliinas brother and Prince Leon while passing as a girl at 6 years old (can authors stop with romance before having any level of maturity?). Now he has taken an interest in Liliina and only ever seems to treat her as a plaything that he should have. Even proceeding to be happy that he got his proposal declined by her because it is interesting.

[collapse]

The saving grace of this novel is definitly Liliina herself, as she is very likeable and we are routing for her to get her way out of the engagement. The only other character I like would be Sana, Liliina's maid, after we get more details about her first love in a flashback chapter.

All in all it was entertaining but the majority of characters just left me feeling dissapointed, especially all the possible love interests. Normally in a reverse harem story like this you would root for at least one of them, but I can only root for Liliina to escape from the terrible fate, that is being with any of these male leads.

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.
Spoiler

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

I honestly have no idea where this story is going. Ririna/Liliana, our MC, is the eye of a force of nature that ridiculous gag-situations revolves around.

Think of this as a story about a muscle-head and her muscle-head friends and muscle-head family who goes around solving international issues through muscle-headed violence.

The story starts off interesting, with a dense tomboy agreeing to cancel her engagement. However, after that incident is amusingly resolved the dense tomboy turns into a naive shoujo MC. All the story arcs revolve around her friends falling in love or somebody falling in love with her. She even stops focusing on fighting monsters and instead
Spoiler

starts focusing on making sure people don't feel unhappy, because negative emotions create monsters.

[collapse]

Basically an interesting shoujo turns into a boring one.

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.

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.

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

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.
