I Reincarnated, but I Think the Prince (Fiancé) Has Given Up


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

The Prime Minister of Noin Kingdom, Duke Zariel has a single daughter.

She was a beauty who possessed silver hair and eyes as clear as amethyst, Christina.

Her fiancé from her childhood friend who was the First Prince of Noin Kingdom, Alberto.

Having fallen in love at once after they were engaged, she overbearingly demonstrated her love, but before anyone noticed she exhausted his civility, and without even meeting her on her fifteenth birthday, only the present arrived.

When she saw the gifted hair ornament, she suddenly realized. This different world was from a dating simulation game she played, and she wore the role of the love rival.

And now where she was at this point of time, she was in the middle of the route where her beloved Prince was stolen away by the dating simulation game’s protagonist, Clara.

The intersection of jealousy and pride leads to agony, a heartrendingly naive romance between a love stricken maiden and a young man.

The plot is amazing, however it's too fast. I actually got emotional when the whole thing was just a misunderstanding and the FML was ready to break all ties with the prince, but whatever Kami suddenly existed and flushed all my climaxed emotions when the prince suddenly confessed that he loves her. (-_-'')

The FML didn't do anything yet to win the prince's affection and your telling me that he fell in love with her because they knew each other since young and became infatuated after meeting..... bruh. I thought... more>> the story was suppose to be the prince falling in love with the protagonist, Clara, AND THEN when FML regains her control will she do something miraculous.

Sorry, but I can't seem to continue reading this. Don't get me wrong, this is only my personal opinion and I respect your decision of liking this novel... so please don't talk about getting me to like this and whatnot *sigh*

P.S. atleast I gave it a 3 star, lol XD <<less

In the typical villainess story, the FL becomes aware of her role as the villainess, act differently from the original plotline and thereby captures the heart of the prince. This story differs in the fact that the ML has been in love with the FL since the beginning, and this I why I hate it.

... more>>

The ML is extremely possessive and jealous. He has been in love with the FL since they were children and would do everything to keep her by his side. Everything with the heroine is a misunderstanding. He spends time with her because his friend is in love with her and he has difficulties rejecting her because he as the prince has to be courteous. In the original plotline, the ML fell out of love with the FL, because she out of jealousy was mean to the heroine. In this plotline, the FL endures the provocation of the heroine and this allows her to keep the ML.

ML: "If there is any man around you, I want to kill him. And if you were to choose any man other than me, I will kill all of the men you chose, so prepare yourself" (v1c3).

How can I accept the existence of the original plotline, when he says such kind of stuff? How can I not feel betrayed, when her display of jealousy is all it takes for him to abandon 10 years of love and marry another woman? And that is not the only reason why I despise him. He is allowed to kill the kill the men around her, but she can't even splash tea at the heroine without being dumped? How is this fair? Besides, he knows that the heroine provoked her to act that way. I love his possessiveness, but I can't accept the fact that his love isn't unconditional.

Well I liked it but there were some things that didn't make sense to me. First, even though it says she remembered her past life, it was only limited to the knowledge of the game - nothing else, not even modern women common sense. Next, the whole ending that was supposed to happen in the game. The next part is a big spoiler since this is a pretty short story so be warned ---> ... more>>

If in the actual game, the prince married clara and all that jazz, how could he suddenly be so yandere love with christina???? Like wtf, if he was in love with her all along then how did he even marry clara in the game ver. And if he was so in love with her that he would kill anyone who threatened their love or whatever, how come he was all good with her marrying the merchant in the game????!!! Omg. Personally don't like the dude, he came off as one big perv but I guess his pov stories are pretty cute so idk anymore this story lol sigh.

A cute romance that is put together nicely. I read the series before it was translated, but the translation quality is also nice.

Somewhat atypical for a 'otome game memory recall' storyline, the main character's personality doesn't completely change after realizing that she is in the rival role. She still acts like a noble, not a clueless Japanese girl with crazy marketing schemes.

I reincarnated but I think the Prince (Fiance) has Given Up is nothing stellar, but may satisfy your immediate cravings for self-aware otomegame villainesses. The target audience is very young - say, 10~17 years old, and you may be able to enjoy it. If you're older than that or if you've read enough stories to know what you like and don't like, this one will most likely fall into the "don't like" category.

For a light novel, the prose can be considered on the average side. It has enough setting, backstory,... more>> and description to give you a firm understanding of where the story takes place and what's going on. The pacing goes a bit fast and skips a lot of introspection and build-up. For plot and action purposes that makes things easier to read, but the characters and their personalities greatly suffer.

The female lead (villainess) is decently likeable - after regaining her memories she reflects on her previous actions and amends them in order to protect her integrity as a person. The antagonist (heroine) is also decent in her role of instigating trouble and forcing the scenarios to march on. They aren't given enough time to think to go beyond their tropes, but they're effective enough to carry the story forward.

The problem of this story lies in the male lead, who is accidentally written to be an extremely flawed, shallow, and lustful man. He avoided his fiance, Christine, after she started trying to impress him by dressing up, but once she regained her memories and started looking at him as if she wanted to break down in tears, he immediately regains interest in her and starts teasing her. Evidently, he doesn't care at all about what she's feeling or going through, but instead just likes how she looks when she's sad and insecure. The more depressed she gets, the more excited he becomes.

Furthermore, every other line he speaks is some incredibly cringy attempts at flirting that attempt to sound cool and heart-thumping, but instead come off as crass. After reading so many doujins and web novels you'd think I'd have built up a resistance to poorly-written dialogue, but Prince Alberto is simply too powerful. Examples:


"You are such a bad girl, Christina. Doing such mischief, showing me such face, are you doing it on purpose?"

"You are such a bad girl..... To trouble me like this"

"If you keep on being so cute..... sooner or later, I'll eat you, you know..... ?"


The main things he does in the story is 1) molest Christina 2) flirt with Clara, so I'm not sure what his appeal is as a person or as a love interest.

If you're on the younger side, this kind of story may be fresh and new enough to excite you - but once you've read better-written villainess stories, or better-written smut, then I Reincarnated, but (etc) just falls flat. If you've read this story and enjoyed it, power to you, because I wish I could have as well. <<less

A very cute romance between two nobles. If you want a cute, warm love story this is for you.

... more>>

From the tags it seems the MC was reincarnated in an otome game she played in her past life, but it was not explained clearly since it was mentioned she cannot remember most things in her past life except the game she played. In her past life, game memories she is the main love antagonist, and her fiance which is the prince, will fall in love with the game protagonist named Clara. At first she couldn't accept it since she's in love with the prince but on a party when she saw the prince and the Clara she decided to resign to her faith, to give up the prince.

The otome game tag really has no big involvement in the story. But still I enjoyed reading this, plus I'm glad the misunderstanding was solved pretty quickly instead of dragging it for a long time.

Its a short romance story.

For me personally its interesting how the two main character have misunderstanding and at the end they solve it.

Its fluffy and cute. It also had its heart break moments. If you want a short fluffy romance story then this is the one.

I love it! Thank you for translating this intriguing novel!

I can't wait to see the final ending of this novel!


The story is focused on the relationship between a noble daughter, Christina, and her fiance, the crown prince, Alberto.

... more>>

Warning! Spoiler!


Christina and Alberto has fall in love with each other since they first met. Alberto, like any yandere, is very protective and possessive with his innocent and naive fiance, Christina.

Unfortunately, their relationship become a bit rocky and full of misunderstandings after the arrival of Clara, a commoner turn into noble, who looks like any innocent heroine in otomen game.

Clara has her eyes set on Alberto. Clara has many times try to make Christina looks bad in front of Alberto and everyone, while at the same time set a rumor to break Alberto and Christina's engangement. Clara know that Emil, Alberto naive childhood friend, likes her... so she use him to approach Alberto.

Fortunately, Alberto, who is madly in love with Christina, is able to reconcile with Christina. He shows her how serious his feeling is with her and how he couldn't wait to marry her.

There's a reason why "R-15" is tagged to this novel. No, it's not just because the yandere crown prince, Alberto, vows to kill everyman who looks at his fiance, Christina, wrongly.


What I like in this story is... it's told by third person point of view of Christina and Alberto alternately. It's kind of rare in otomen game themed novel. <<less

References to the story throughout my spoiler, so skip if you want to read it with fresh eyes.

This story plays out like a typical shoujo manga, sparkles and flowers and all. Not my favorite genre, but it was nicely done. To be honest, the author should've taken that reincarnation bit out. The main character rarely references back to her past self, and the main source of ~~~drama~~~ is her insecurity, not the overarching Otome Game Plot. The plot itself is simple and bland done countless times over. Though the male... more>> main character appealed to me on paper, I never got why he fell for the MC. Personally, I'd like something more down-to-earth, but that's my preferences talking.

Extra star for the amazing translations and prose that turned this novel from bland to semi-likable for me. Not my taste, but I'm sure some would like it. All in all, if you're a shoujo fan or just want a simple, cute romance with sprinkles of k-drama cliches, it's worth your time. <<less

Read up until the main story and some side story.

Quite good.

It's basically the leading lady realizing she's in a game and knows her fiance would be stolen away from her and therefore has misunderstanding him -which I think probably is the reason that she got the happy ending?

I would have love to read what happened to the true ending where as the prince was successfully taken by that girl. Cause judging from the prince's personality I don't understand why he broke up as the leading lady saw in the game.

The game element plays almost no part other than the initial shocking memory and Christina is too lovely for this world. I felt her feelings were very genuine and her frustration combined with her intense love was very satisfying to read. She's a very lovable character who has a surprisingly low self esteem for her stature. Tbh she deserves better than Alberto but oh well. Alberto is truly an idiot.

From Christina's story he's vaguely detestable but after reading his story I conclude he's simply an idiot that loves her too... more>> much to function sometimes. The after story is fun to read and I'm glad Christina has her happy times. The translation quality is good and the descriptions were pretty nice especially regarding Christina's tumultuous feelings.

Overall, A cute misunderstanding filled romance with a happy ending and an especially cute female lead. <<less

It is a cute run-up like story. It is short and focused. With all the necessary elements. I wish a prolonged version of this story but then the well proportioned events and intensity will decrease. So it is good as it is.

There were some unexplained things in the plot that were like thorn with the rose, I just focused on the main story but some loose ends still were annoying. Like proper disposal of "Clara". "Chris's missing background and unexplained devotion to the Prince even though she knew he is... more>> heartless" (Although we come to know it is not the case after reading the end and his POV too).

Overall it was an enjoyable read. <<less

It's cute, but I really don't like the prince, he's like a hungry wolf all the time. The FL is alright.

Interesting story... but even though it's says reincarnation, the FMC adapted too fast to the event... It's fine and all as it's different from other stories that depicted the MC as a person from another world and try too integrated their past life in the new world. and I think it's a good too. But like this is it really reincarnation or just a soul transfer?
