Fake Saint Of The Year


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.
[The Eternal Scattering Flowers: Fiore Caduto Eterna] is a game ill-suited of being known as a galge, as the main heroine would – regardless of the chosen route – meet her demise.

Fudou Niito, a resident of Japan, went to bed dissatisfied with the ending of the game. When he next awoke, he found himself in the body of the game’s hated fake saint, Elrise.

Confused, but with an understanding that Elrise’s actions would spell disaster for many lives in the future, he took advantage of the situation and acted to change the course of history.

As a result, despite her rotten personality, Elrise was adored by those around her as a perfect saint. Furthermore, the game itself was intrinsically linked to his original world and changed accordingly to suit Elrise’s actions. Without any knowledge of what the hell was going on, the fake saint Elrise continued to alter her fate.

A saint on the outside, but a man on the inside.

The transmigrator was a piece of sh*t and the person he transmigrated into was also a piece of shit. A combination of sh*t and sh*t would cause an accident – to create the greatest fake saint sh*tshow of the year!

It is a really good novel. The protagonist is likeable and funny. And the story is always progressing, without making it feeling rushed.

Recommended for those who seek comedy gender bender trope.

The tags for this novel are extremely deceptive, this is at least 10 times better than I ever hoped it would be.

It got to the point where I had to dabble in the dark arts of MTL to know how the story would proceed.

The plot is surprisingly well done, our MC here is a self proclaimed NEET (male) that got transmigrated into the body of the fake saint Elrise (female) a minor villain of a gal game. She strives for the "ideal ending" as usual in this kind of story... more>> but as the plot progresses we are made to realize that things are not as simple as they seem.

This is fundamentally a misunderstanding comedy but it's different from the likes of "Overlord" or "To be a Power in the Shadows" for example because the MC here is counsciously deceiving other people most of the time, she is an extremely selfcentered person, a sociopath if you want and I'm a sucker for this kind of characters when they are done well and Elrise is pulled off reasonably well.

This isn't a masterpiece by any means but for a webnovel, especially one of this genre, this is far ahead of anything similar I've come across, the novel is also translated pretty well and, if you want to MTL that's also readable.

I can only suggest you pretend the tags don't exist (especially the "romantic subplot" ones, as they are a stretch) and give it a shot. <<less

Great novel. Unlike many JP novels, this story sets out with a clear idea of where it wants to end. Some might see 'only' having 85 chapters as being a downside but I much prefer this story where this any annoying fluff and filler. Every chapter move the story forward. I was very satisfied with the end.

I am also a sucker for characters like Elrise, and I fell in love with her instantly. Other characters could have been more interesting if developed differently, but that is forgivable. The story is... more>> also pretty light hearted so the story is as tense as it could be.

While I wouldn't call the writing a masterpiece, this was one of a handful of stories that I have actually loved all the way though this year. I would definitely recommend giving this a try. <<less

Waiting for ch. 2, the story start getting interesting there.

Misunderstanding accelerated.

What protag doing in the game? World affect (change?) the game contents in the real world side. And here we got interesting players side reaction.

So, if you'll notice, all the reviews saying bad things only read ten to twenty chapters. All the reviews saying good things have completed it or at least went past twenty chapters. This is not a coincidence.

At first, the world building seems clumsy, the characters seem cheap, the misunderstandings seem obvious, and the MC seems a little s*upid, changing things and expecting things to go the same. The MC also seems extremely selfish and uncaring of the people around them. Also, the reincarnation explanation (or lack thereof) was complained about.... more>> BUT. If you continue reading,

the world around the protagonist is explained more clearly. The MC's cause for their thought process is elaborated on, and you begin to realize that maybe his original personality really is a bit saint-like, and though he degrades himself and has trouble being genuinely considerate of others, he does want to be better. As for as the reincarnation explanation? I thought I learned about the truth of it a few chapters ago, but it seems I may be in the middle of being hit with a double whammy reincarnation explanation/world building exposition that might be quite unique! I'm looking forward to it!


Anyway, what I'm saying is, don't judge the story by the first few chapters, as it just gets better and better as it goes on. Even tr*sh of the Count's Family had us misunderstanding our beloved protagonist for ages. Go in with the mind that this protagonist is not as bad as he seems, and that he's an unreliable narrator, just like Cale Henituse. He's seriously growing on me. <<less

  1. I'm actually hooked that I finished this at one sitting.

    The world building for a galge is quite good to be fair, the author has done the plot a good conclusion even without a romantic end which is nice considering that I want her to be as pure till the end. (lol)



    Seems like it will go like bakarina LN which will extend after the dating sims ended (or not, just added side stories). I'm quite hyped for the continuation!
Edit 2:

Hoo boy the After-story has quite a bittersweet taste onto it... Kinda hope it's got deeper really (or is it just me that doesn't want to end that part, it's really interesting to have a reverse isekai part for some reason as it's rarely used genre.)

One of the best damn novels I've read in a while; The MC is relatable and seems like a real person more than many mc's I've read about so far. She honestly might be a psychopath all through out the story up until she fights the [witch], but somehow her realization of this makes her seem more real. She understands her mortality and has good reasons to act without much care to her own personal well being, but it doesn't come off as forced.
At the end, I was hoping... more>> for really any romantic development, but wholesome slice of life is good too. <<less

One word, masterpiece.

Okay, that might seem like a exaggeration but this novel really is a very beautiful one. It has very good comedy, very nice plot and a huge feels trip. I

The characters are all nice and realistic upto a degree. The MC is just awesome as well.

... more>> The world building is excellent specially its history.

The plot is pretty good too and will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Some things might confuse you at first, but as you keep reading, you will find that almost everything is explained properly.

Hope it will give you as much enjoyment as it gave me. <<less

I did not expect this novel to be as good as it was. There were almost no loose ends, and for once, the epilogue chapters were unbelievably satisfying. It's like the author knew exactly how to make the ending into one that doesn't leave you feeling empty. Easily one of my favorite novels now.

Edit: I was wrong I feel so empty now

As other reviewers who read about 1/4 of the novel say: early chapters can be annoying to read. But once you can get past that, you can experience a great joy as I say below


Rarely do I read such story so mysterious right at the start that ends with explaining everything leaving no plot holes. It amazes me how well thought out the plot was made, as well as how the mystery and twists were handled.

It's a story you'd want to continue reading forever but of course, it just ended.

Definitely would recommend.

Saw this randomly popping up, and oh man you're never going to regret picking this up.

At first, I thought this is just yet another generic isekai, and the first few chapters do make me think so. However, after the first few chapters, everything start unfolding. No filler, no bullcrap, every chapter filled with plots and can you believe it? An isekai with PROPER MYSTERY, and a damn good one at that.

Reading a chapter just makes me want to read the next one immediately, it makes you want to binge it... more>> as much as possible. Even as an isekai, I can safely say this is one of the best series I had ever read. The pacing is really really good. Jam-packed with actions and plot but not fast to the point of overwhelming.

You know what's the most surprising? This story actually managed to make me get attached to the MC unlike every single other isekai. The plot is so unbelievably good that you actually get worried about the MC.


Right now, at c41 in the story, the MC is currently in an inescapable death countdown that's impossible to survive and it'll go off in less than an year. Even if our MC manages to kill the witch, it'll still require her to end her life to break the cycle.


There aren't much chapters and each chapter are jam-packed with plot and action, so please don't go in expecting a lot of world-building, slice of life and character development (except for MC and the characters that are particularly close to the MC)

tl;dr: just like what the rating of this series imply, this series is truly fantastic even while being an isekai. Action packed, no filler, no bullcrap. <<less

My gosh, this novel is so unique and funny. While no harem was a plus for me, I thought the no romance (besides some side cp in extras) would be a downer. But nope! Surprisingly, the gender bender of this very weird guy, our MC, carried this novel from start to finish. Honestly, MC should get an Oscar for his acting skills lol! He saw that he looked like a cute, angelic girl so he acted like a saint. Who would’ve known she (he) was a fake saint that would... more>> become the strongest and most saint-like existence out of all the world’s other saints haha.

Great comedy and great ending. A lot of the mysteries presented throughout the novel eventually gets revealed and explained. Definitely a fun read I would recommend, and the extras were satisfying too. <<less

This is good, it made me tear up 2 times. The plot holes in the early parts are explained later but I guess it is hard to understand it little. The MC has an unreliable narration, what he does is different from what he says inside his head. The MC is really a saint from the POV of the others. The misunderstanding is a little repetitive but that's bearable. Don't worry about it being gay because there's no romance with the MC at all. Don't be bothered with the POV... more>> of the MC at the start of the story because it's the unreliable narration part, the POV of the other characters towards the MC is more reliable to know what she does and what she says on the outside, but the MC POV is on purpose. Anyway it's really good and I think you should read it <<less

A well-written coherent RPG-like story that kept me flipping the pages from the beginning until the end. The various tropes are used just the right amount to make the story interesting but not overused to the point that it's boring. The various themes are mysterious are well thought out and revealed. (The misunderstanding was maybe reaching into the over-use territory at first, but it got toned down in the latter part of the story.)

With that much praise, why 4 star instead of 5 stars? I've thought a lot about... more>> it and I think the best way to put it is, if you're looking to kill time, it's a great story to read, but if you don't read it, you're not really missing out on anything. Perhaps it's because there's nothing unique about the story. I just don't feel that invested in the character or the world (that matches the MC's mentality though, so it could've been deliberate). <<less

It's a fun adventure with a guy that ships the MC and heroine so much that he commits mass genocide on their enemies so they would be free to romance each other only to break the story by becoming the main heroine. I highly recommend it

Amazing. This novel had many plot hole at the start but at the end many plot been hole been filled that I can't help feel amazing. Especially I like that MC power is not an blessings or cheat but more an cursed if been normal or amazing human. Only because MC had broken personality that it became her power.

At first I couldn't adapt to the author’s writing style it felt close and personal and it honestly made me uncomfortable since I'm used to feeling it is fiction. When Niita the MC turned into the fake saintess Elrise he maintained his original personality looking down on others who were weaker or slightly incompetent compared to himself the OP Saint-sama. He would do it feeling exhilarated at his never-before-seen power and would get deep in the act of being a Saint whowas endlessly forgiving and all merciful to anyone within... more>> ’her’ reach.

I really liked this novel because of how much effort the author pays into explaining every single mystery delving into plot holes and patching them all up with logical reasoning and various theories using otaku knowledge from other times and spaces (manga, anime, otaku specialties) which made sense considering that Niito, after all, has been an otaku since the very beginning and in fact his sense of fiction and reality which he lacked made him feel less of a line of thinking that others would consider logical and this sense of realty is ironically built in what he had supposed was a fictional world. This author did an excellent job in making the personas more 3-D by adding several POV's. If anything it's the MC who tends to understate his actions as he sees it as a routine but from a spectators view we as readers can understand what was happening outside of the MC’s unreliable narration. <<less

I didn't think I'd like this story as much as I did when I first read it, but I'd give it a 4.5. The first person monologue was quite annoying at first. Especially the first 2 chapters which looked like nothing more than lazy writing. The author skipped ahead 14 years in just 2 chapters and with just a few paragraphs each, briefly gave the backstory and introduction of many of the side characters. I wish there was a bit more effort in fleshing out the the beginning of the... more>> story instead of glossing it over and then recounting "Oh this and that happened. Also that happened", in the first person monologue of the main character. But I must say, I think the writing get's better (either that or you get used to it, like a certain priestess accompanying a certain goblin fanatic said).

So why the 4.5 star rating despite what looked like an appalling start? It's because I loved the story and how it turned out to be much grander than it first appeared. Like a rough gem that was polished, this story got much better. It is by no means perfect but I personally think the skills of the author improved over time as reflected in his writing. The first person monologue of the main character might be the weakest part of this story because of how annoying it can be sometimes, but it reflects on the true character of the the protagonist. As with all stories using the "misunderstanding" trope, the best part of this story is in the perspective of the other characters who do not know of the truth. We can quite clearly see how the main characters actions in their first person monologue is perceived by those around them and this is what made me think that the annoying first person monologue was actually alright.

Not only this, the story improves. What at first looked like a story that can be lazily finished in just 10 chapters if the author wanted to, managed to evolve into wonderful adventure spanning 86 chapters with many side stories taking place after the end of the main story (we can see the world after the end, which helps fill the gaping hole in ones heart they often feel when they finish a story). The author managed to add in many twists and turns that most of us probably wouldn't have expected which improved and made the story much more interesting. At some point, you just want to carry on reading because you are interested in what happens next. It's is a slow start, but if you manage to get past the first few chapters I think you would find that this story would turn out to be something worth your time. <<less
