Incredibly interesting, barely any filler like in a lot of novels and the tedious nature of most political/business novels (taking 50 chaps to start the business or 30 just to get on their feet) is completely eliminated with skillful (imo) use of time skips. The synopsis is a little misleading however as the premise that this is in an "Otome game world" is only relevant for the first 3-5 chaps (I have read up to 84 so not sure if it will resurface later) however this is an incredible read... more>> if you like an MC who is truly smart and adept rather than the author simply stating that they are. The political and financial moves the MC makes are well thought out and logical, truly a work deserving of 5 stars. <<less

I like the story, its kinda fast pacing story. It was translated by JAPTEM.

I dunno what happen, but there's no more updated translation in this team.

I found this novel yesterday and I finished reading it today morning. So you can say Im a BINGE reader.

... more>> The plot is okay, very readable how it was translated. Im just wondering how the MC, switched in the story. Because there's no story about that details.

The length of the story per chapter was short for me. So the more details, let say it was remove. But still you can imagine how the story goes.

And also, since it was a fast pacing story I just find it Lacking in Surprise Area, yes the MC she's making her fief revolutionarizing but thats I want to say its so fast.. Hehehe.

But still I like it.

I just hope there's a more in deep tackle of the characters in this story.

Because I finished reading what the JAPTEM TEAM translated yo v1-v2-c51. As for now, its my opinion..

Now let me see the other translators did on this Story. <<less

Iris is a hardworking woman. Even so, she is soft hearted and very kind. She's the epitome of a saint that works hard towards an ideal goal. She has many supporters who stands up for her at all times. She is a queen fit to lead.

This novel is very different from those other transmigration novels. First of all, she was right at her bad end when she transmigrated. She also has her memories and it's more like her personalities mashed together than one taking over the other. She has a... more>> great deal of resolve and knowledge. Although, regrettably, that knowledge is somewhat excessive deus ex machina for supposedly normal salary woman who works with taxes.

In the beginning, there's some info dumps on character introductions and setting so it's a little confusing. Even so, it's enjoyable seeing her manage her fief. The real thing basically starts when she made her re-debut in noble society after her bad ending. It basically is the internal strife between the princes. One of things I want the novel to tone down is the switch in perspectives. Although it is helpful and interesting, doing it too much is also very messy and hard to understand. The romance is cute but is not very developed as it is somewhat one sided on the ML side currently. Although I would love for them to get together but the ML is hesitant to chase after Iris so I don't get much hopes of improvements right now.

Currently, in the story, there's not much complex plot lines happening so there is much to be anticipated. I hopes it continues to dive deeper into the main conflict and drama. The characters are somewhat bland and not much character developments but then again, we haven't gotten to know much about the characters yet. Just the outside descriptions currently appear. Even so, they are pretty likable. Overall, it's certainly interesting but just waiting for it to get more in depth and angsty. 4/5. <<less

Shoujo is the tag, but do not get it wrong that shoujo are full of romance inside of it. Nope, this one had not, or at least yet. It was all pure business, how to get back up from being shunned by the society, but no hardships whatsoever her, she was away from those who could mock her afterall. The business part was nice, but as expected of shoujo, there was not any detail of "building up to success", the MC just implemented her idea then "skip!" it was a... more>> great success without any problem, this story is for teen girl, so no to heavy stuffs. There were also changes of PoV which was nice too. So far no hardships, or maybe conflict, the main problem was still a mystery, such as "the original main heroine" what was up with her butt!? <<less

My absolute favorite reincarnation into an otome genre novel. Heroine has past knowledge which makes her decision making processes (and her overworking) seem believable, but there's still enough mystery to make it intriguing.

I first found this story while reading the manga adapted form of it. Thinking nothing of it besides how beautiful the art is, I got drawn in by the plot and how she handled things that were thrown at her. Now that it got me hooked, I went ahead and found the novel and read the entire story up to where I had to wait for the next chapter. She's a female lead that I love (strong, capable, witty, beautiful, gives no fudge about the people who threw her away)... more>> and wish more authors would create *COUGH SHOUJO AUTHORS COUGH* and you can say this novel is what got me hooked into reading more light novels than manga nowadays. I hope she gets her happy ending. TL;DR: Came for the art, stayed for the plot. <<less

I really like this. Although it follows a common trend of reincarnated-into-an-otome-game-as-the-rival, It's unique in how they have it set after the "game" is over, or the bad-end flag is up. The character is also relatable and likable, but not too OP or pulling a reverse harem situation. Although some elements are a bit generic, it's still a solid, well rounded novel that many will enjoy. The pacing is a bit fast in the beginning. Compared to the manga, it skips some parts, but it's still good.

Love this series!!!

A mix of otome game and political dabbling but there is also the deeper element where the prospect of an evil heroine or just a strangely 'empty' one now that the game is over is SUPER EXCITING. Ahhh Oujo-sama, please go on exciting exploits and clash against the prince and his airheaded (or genius-actress) fiancé. Oh and a romance better be raised soon.

"Common Sense of a Duke's Daughter" isn't just your average Otome game novel with a noble villainess. The MC isn't a super super sweet, dense, and dumb like all the other MCs from other novels involving Otome games. I also love the fact that the MC didn't start out from the beginning of the game, instead of the she started at the end, which brings the reader to wonder what she's going to do next to escape her destruction end. Also, I like how the MC doesn't make a harem... more>> with the captured characters. I enjoy the slow romance between Iris and (you'll know who if you read the novel, so READ THE NOVEL). I learned a lot from the way of the MC's thinking and her knowledge of politics and her actions to help her fief. I love this and find this novel as a jewel among the other similar novels. <<less

First I read the manga, because I like the plot and bored for long waiting update I was searching the novel and I really like it.

Its different for other otome reincarnation novel whose MC try to twisted the bad ending. The story is about how to survive after the down clif of life and how to revenge in elegant way to her ex fiance and his lover.

I hope the translator continue to translate this novel because this novel is really good.

First I started the manga and because the plot looked funny I started the novel. I find that the novel is a good relaxed and interesting story, but it's true that the developments is too slow and the Protagonist is too perfect.

One of otome game story I had been reading so far and so good. Protagonist's character similar to "Kenkyo, Kenjitsu o Motto ni Ikite Orimasu" but her action been more like "Botsuraku Youtei Nanode, Kajishokunin wo Mezasu". Very intresting story.

Initial impressions as of ch.3. Rated 3.5, rounded up to 4.

An interesting hook. Somewhat like "Kenkyo, Kenjitsu o Motto ni Ikite Orimasu", the MC found herself transmigrated into the villainess of an otome game. The difference is that when she arrived, she was already careening towards the bad end. Bewildered by her sudden condition but remaining calm, the MC goes through the motions just like in the game, adding her own flairs and to change her image from a bully to a defeated but still proud noble. The first three... more>> chapters thus far feel just like a teaser but already the hook seems interesting as the MC will try to struggle against the terrible ending in store for her. Will be reading this, and update accordingly once more chapters are out. <<less
