I Favor the Villainess


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

“I am the heroine of an otome game, so is it wrong to like the villainess?”

Corporate slave OL, Oohashi Rei, reincarnated as the heroine Rei Taylor in the world of the otome game 「Revolution」.

Her preference isn’t capturable princes, it’s the villainess, Claire François.

She merrily accepts Claire’s dislike.

With the protagonist’s involvement, it’s the beginning of a unique romcom.

To make it worse, Rei’s love became directed at the villainess, what does Claire’s future hold?

It’s my second series with a screwball villainess.

A little different from ordinary… I hope you can enjoy the villainess who’s just a little different.

at the very shortest; it’s pretty good and if you enjoy or want to see what a story written from a shoujo manga male lead’s point of view, you’ll like it. If you’re familiar with Usui from school president is a maid (a shoujo manga), this story is what it would be like if we followed his POV.

Yes there are some holes in the plot and it does get a little confusing here and there if you can’t suspend disbelief but it’s a solid read. I think the stand out... more>> is rei’s characterization honestly.

If I were to break it down, Rei is a woman who is written like a shoujo manga male love interest who fell in love with the protagonist first. A little flirty, cold to the normal “capture targets”, she’s very focused on her sole goal of supporting Claire in love and life with a disregard for all else. Claire herself is a “tsundere” who at first attempted to bully Rei but recoiled due to rei’s abnormal reactions. The three princes who are capture targets fall to the side. They kinda feel like friends (except for one who feels a little like rei’s rival for Claire’s love) but kinda feel mostly there to move plot. Mish is kinda weak and honestly fades into the background very quickly. She’s supposed to be rei’s “handler” but she shows up only a few times and then is forgotten quickly.

Plot wise, it’s less “political intrigue” and more “slice of life”, it follows Rei and her devotion to Claire, with some background events to cause drama. Whether or not Rei and Claire end up together is a toss up, as it feels like Claire is split between Rei and another character (a male capture target).

Overall, I think your love of this novel depends on how much you like shoujo manga. Did you like stories like Special A? The school president is a maid? Dengeki daisy? More specifically did you like the male lead of theses manga? A little flirty and cold to others, helps out the main girl a lot, skillfull, etc etc? Did you ever wish you could see from his point of view?

if you answered yes, you’ll like this story because it reads very similar as long as you slide past the few chapters until Rei becomes Claire’s maid and accept that Rei is a girl and not a guy. <<less

Well, I can say is, It's great! It's different from the usual Isekai power play I read.

As the synopsis says, the MC which is called Rei, she's then Isekaied to her fav love sim game and goes with the villainess route. It is very light-hearted and cute, Rei just messes around with the Tsundere Villainess/Heroine which is called Claire, on a daily basis.

But at times the plot turns serious, hinting on events that could destroy the Rei everyday life with the Claire. I really like the change of atmosphere in... more>> the novel and when that does happen I get worried and excited how the MC's going to handle the problem.

As for the characters, as the story goes on the relationship between Rei and Claire gets deeper and more Yuri, no echii thou. We also get a glimpse of the MC's past little by little and the reason the MC's so addicted to the Villainess/Heroine. The interaction between the two is, Rei teases Claire and declares her love anytime she can, this direct approach gets Claire closer to Rei, and Tsundere Claire goes Dere~ more often. (Love it when this happens!)

Finishing this off, I really like this and hope it continues to get better. I think you should totally read this if you like your light-hearted and cute novel but also like a bit of drama included. For the Isekai consumer like me, give it a try as it's a similar concept but new at the same time. <<less

I have read the raws out so far, I love this story as the yuri develops at a good pace, not instantly or after hundreds of chapters

... more>>

The yuri starts to pick up around chapter 45 when Claire's sister comes in and makes Rei stop being a maid for a few days, in that time Claire realises she misses Rei and also just before that point Rei starts to realise how she would get depressed if Claire dates someone else, until that point she was thinking she would be happy if Claire is happy

I honestly wasn't expecting to be so invested in this story. The story is light-hearted and the interactions between the MC and Claire are hilarious. The chapters are rather short but that doesn't take anything away from the flow of the story.

I thought it stay light-hearted with no real depth (in term of characters and plot) but after reading chapter 15, my opinion has completely changed.

... more>>

the author's realistic take/explanation and comparison of homos*xuality in Rei's original world to her current one really hit hard for me and I was not expecting to see that kind of character depth pertaining to LGBT issues in a WN. And honestly ugh my heart stung at Rei's self-mocking moments. It felt very real for me.


All in all, this is quickly becoming one of my favourite stories and I can feel it in my bones that the slowburn will be worth it. (I'm begging u author pls)

OH!! And the translator is just amazing! Frequent updates and it's very easy to read the story. Very grateful to them for picking this up!

This is my first time reviewing so I apologise for any mistakes! <<less

I love it. This goes above and beyond the average WN. The main character's introspectives/narration are fairly interesting; it's not just your typical I have to do this and do that, etc. Her banter is excellent, and if you read it you can kinda tell it's not all cut and dry. The translations are very well done and as of right now, releasing at the speed of light. (I appreciate you)

In certain chapters, I can feel influence taken from the 3d world. Maybe it's just me looking too deeply... more>> into it, but I really feel like the author knows what they're talking about. There's a bit of social commentary that I want to share that was in ch15. There's a few lines in the chapter that goes like:


In my previous life, intellectuals who tried to eliminate prejudice against homos*xuality often criticized celebrities who made homos*xuality their gimmick to appear on TV.

There's no doubt their opinion was correct.


Of course, it's a fact that such celebrities increase prejudice.


The biggest figure that comes to mind is Sumitani Masaki (stage name - Hard Gay). He was this super flamboyant, leather leotard wearing TV personality, one of who's catch phrases was something along the lines of "HAADO GEI DESU" while doing air humps towards people. I'm assuming he's not actually gay since I mean, he's married to an actress/model (who I think is drop dead gorgeous I might add) so it does really seem like a gimmick. However he seemed pretty beloved from what I remember; only other plausible figure that I know of is Billy Herrington but I don't know if he was that famous. Really gets your noggin joggin.

I've never thought this hard about a WN.

At the very least, it's a cute story about a girl hanging out with her crush, the villain girl, while dodging d*ck.

Update at ch40. Man this story is getting spicy. <<less

I love this story really. I just love how the story kind of jokes about the genre and the relationship between the Villainess and the MC is my favorite. I've wanted a story like this for a while. I always think it'd be more interesting instead of the cliche harem of guys around the MC If the MC decides to go for the girl like the Villainess.

I don't really like Mish, She's not funny how she will Real In the MC. Even looking past how annoying she is. Her type... more>> of character is best reserved for MC's IMO. It's funnier seeing the MC real in an overly energetic character than the other way around.

Overall it's a pretty fun story. <<less

It's very funny, but if you start empathizing with Claire (the villainess), then it becomes impossible to enjoy. I'd also recommend against it for anyone who's ever been the victim of s*xual harassment, stalking, or other s*xually motivated crimes as it will likely trigger you. That said, I doubt it will ever have graphic content. It just doesn't feel like that kind of story.

Honestly, it's hard to rate. If you can prevent yourself from seeing things from Claire's point of view, then it's hilarious, and easily a four or a... more>> five, if not though, then it's basically a one, since the whole series hinges on their dysfunctional relationship. <<less

This part isn’t really a review, but more of just a way to let everyone know that Xen’s review has skewed info: no gender bender, the MC was always a girl, always.

My short review for this novel is that it’s hilarious and great for most people. If u aren’t homophobic, can ignore Claire’s p.o.v. (Which I could, didn’t even think of until I read jacobpaige’s review which makes complete sense, bless your empathy), AND aren’t already sick of/hate the genre in general, then this will be a gem.

As it is clearly stated in the title, it is about a MC who merries on the known well tsundere type syndrome person.

The plot and the sketches of story is very simple, almost like fitting the slice life tag, because there is not much plot development, much universe detailing focus, instead it is cleanly centered in the daily imteraction of a very limited amount of characters incluiding the female gender bender protagonist and her /his crush.

As the problem comes from, the declaration stated in the title is bluntly fast, but... more>> the problem itself remains aftermath, it is very shallow and repeatitive, ocasionally fixing the MC as a merely puppet of love. He can think, but only according the priorities, after his admiration for his crush. And this admiration is the problem because in turnways author started trying to fix a rational thinking on him but latter regards more importance making him belittle and instead make a clearly contrast of the work of his, and by this reasoning it is easy to predict the story.

For those who have already been reading, ¿Where do you think the slime appeared in out town or innertown?, the answer is neither facts matter, the demon invasion popped out of nowhere detailing any fundamental previous spacial location about whether it is the logical of the situation, be it plausible or not, in contrast the continuation dialogue between characters of the baby slime and monologue of the MC just feels artificially, all in way to fit the story maybe to detail the rational thinking of him and latter losing it into blind devotion. <<less
