Common Sense of a Warrior


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

I was born to a Marquess military family; my father is a hero of the country. Motivated by my mother’s death one night in a burglary, I too resolved to study the blade. My aim was to join the army just like my father, and to avoid repeating my mother’s tragedy. Unexpectedly, despite my gender, my swordsmanship grew strong… However, my ambition ended when I learned that women could not enroll into the army. Furthermore, although I hadn’t received even a single lesson in proper etiquette, I suddenly had my engagement set with a Ducal House that had churned out prime ministers for generations…

Very interesting. This is actually the story of the mother from "Common Sense of a Duke’s Daughter". I have only read the description above, but I just had to write something the moment I realized who the main character was. Who would have guessed that the gentle and elegant mother actually wanted to join the army once. I'm really excited about reading this, but I want to wait until a few more chapters have been released.

The story's nice. It shows Melice, Iris mother's development from a boyish personality to a fine, smart and wonderful woman. I highly recommended it.

I just realized that this is from Iris's (Common Sense of A Duke's Daughter) mother's


The story is good and it's making me very curious as to how she and her husband got together

My only complain towards the Novel is the fact that the chapters are too short.. Other than that his story is interesting... In this story, The MC, a noble takes up swordsmanship for the sake of revenge towards the bundits who killed her mother and this reults in her becoming a tomboy. personally I am looking forward on how she transforms to elegent "Melice" from "Common Sense of a Duke’s Daughter".

If you like Common Sense of a Duke's Daughter (the main series) then you will most definitely like this.

If you haven't read the main series and just go into this then you might find the pacing really odd. It kinda jumps all over the place with no direction in the first couple of chapters. Additionally, a fair amount of chapters are really short especially compared to the main series. Still, it is perfectly enjoyable to see how she goes from the warrior to who she is in the main series.

I... more>> personally recommend though you read the first 100 chapters of the main series before reading this as I feel this is a series that is better enjoyed when you know the destination. <<less

It's nice and all but how is a 7 or 8y.o, in the first place, stronger in almost every aspect than the average soldier and, secondly, speaks more maturely than most adults. It really takes me out of the immersion when the kids start to have a deep philosophical debate about life, like bruh this isn't how a 7y.o speaks and behaves, Did you forget how to write children characters? I understand that they're a vehicle for the author to expose their views and whatnot but I just can't picture... more>> a child speaking in such an unnatural way no matter the situation. <<less

Well this is honestly much more enjoyable to read than the main story. But it's still ridden with plotholes and 2 dimensional characters.

A story about a kid being stronger than fully trained soldiers who learns to be a lady. Yea. This is. The story.

It's bland and I have dropped it.

It's a ok enough to read but honestly this many glaring plot holes and forced writing make me angry.

Overall 3 cause translations is cool. (2.5 story)

I liked it up until about chapter 60 or so. After that, the character arc takes a sudden turn without much explanation and, even though I don't hate the development, it doesn't feel earned and the lack of repurcussions from it are irritating me. I hope at some point it gets explained, but it already feels like the author is moving on story-wise so I doubt it.
