I liked it at first, because it was alright for the typical villainess-turned-actual-heroine trope. She's trying to become a villainess, and people end up liking her because she's cute, determined, hardworking, whatever. But recently I don't know what it is, maybe the writing style has always been this way? But it's become quite difficult to read without cringing. There's a lot of Alicia's thoughts, which is fine, but too many words are getting bolded or highlighted to add emphasis, and the dialogue and scenarios read like a Wattpad story written... more>> by a 13 year old. I'm gonna keep reading when I'm bored, but I'm honestly disappointed. I feel like there was a lot of potential, but after she

goes into seclusion to train herself



the new character, Mel, gets introduced as some kind of quirky, half-crazy servant of Duke


everything just started going downhill. I'm honestly kind of upset. Thanks to the translator for all your hard work, but maybe the author's writing is just not to my taste. I have seen many villainess stories that worked out way better with a more solid plot. <<less

This book is amazing. The story is cute and fluffy at the start, but gradually proceeds into something more mature.

The character development is also good. As the MC grows older, you can see how she changes from a little girl wanting to be a villainess to a brilliant young woman.

And I also like how dense the FL is and how she slowly realizes and accept the ML feelings towards her. It gets a little annoying sometimes but I find it quite cute and funny.

One of best otome/isekai novel I ever read.

Rather than trying to avoid being a villainess, the protagonist aim to become the villainess. Moreover, even though she played otome game in her previous life, her standard of being the 'best villainess' is way too different from those game's villainesses! While most the otome game's villainesses lack something (such as magic, or intelligence) and tend to behave poorly, our MC here rejected that. Instead, she tried to gain knowledge from reading books (way too many books, really), practicing magic, kept her manner,... more>> and even practicing sword! She believed doing all that can help her to be the best villainess. Her 'best villainess' standard is way too high.

At the start, the story is fluffy. Later then the story became more serious and mature and went to dark. But, even though it went to dark, the author can balance it so that it didn't become too dark. This makes the novel so enjoyable and comfortable to read. <<less

Young girl tries to become the best villainess she can, but her idea of what a villainess is might just be a little bit off. I like it, it's a good read but the age gaps are poorly planned out and don't work. In the current chapters you have a 13yo MC and a 9yo suddenly being the antagonists towards a bunch of 18yo's? Lol.

There's an age gap of 3-5 years between the MC and most of the other characters, so you have a 10yo girl being courted by a... more>> 15yo. Which later becomes a 13 girl being courted by a grown ass 18yo man, after one event

she wakes up in his bed and he is lying next to her, shirtless. Then she gets all hot because of his closeness and whatnot. Yuck. Mind you she is still 13yo, even if she is reincarnated and whatnot, modern sensibilities don't really like it


My nonce radar is pinging too much for this so I'm going to have to drop it. Still worth a read if you can get past the age gap. <<less

why is my otome isekai novel teaching me about the evils of hyperinflation caused by the disconnect between the real economy and the value of a fiat currency system

why is my otome isekai novel talking about how universal welfare is impractical because an economy is a limited system reliant on a limited circulation of goods and services, and, if I recall the chapter correctly, the issues of dependency on welfare rather than uplifting the population causing a continuation of the poverty cycle and an unstable base for the peace the... more>> impoverished gain via welfare, although I'm not sure the novel mentions that bit

was this author reading some Mises before he started writing this? I have zero issues with this, but I didn't expect Austrian Econ 101, Isekai edition. <<less

I mtled up to the latest chapter and let me tell you, this webnovel is not what it seems. The first 80 or so chapters are fluffy but then it gets DARK like wtf where did this come from. I honestly thought this was gonna be one of those Bakarina-type reverse harem novels but nah. It's still good, but it's got a "Josei" tag for a reason. MC is a Mary Sue type character but since the Heroine and ML are also it doesn't mean she can easily settle problems... more>> by herself. The heroine and her posse may also severely piss you off whenever they make their appearance. <<less

In the first 70 chapters or so, you would think that the villainess has a skewed idea of what a villainess is supposed to do. Well, try to continue reading, and you'll understand that it's not actually the case. She definitely knows how to act like a villainess, and when she gets older and enters the academy, she will be able to follow the plot. Actually, it gets much more interesting in the later chapters, as the way it all comes together makes sense.

Just a fair warning though: the MC... more>> is very OP. Don't use normal common sense and the likes as this is supposed to be a fantasy novel. It does get a bit boring the author showing how well-versed the MC is in economics, politics, and philosophy. Meh.

If you don't mind being somewhat spoiled, and to better understand what I mean by the latter chapters make the story come together:


MC is actually asked by the King and other nobles to keep an eye on the Saintess and guide her, but she can't do it directly (I guess it's political reasons, etc.) so she must guide her in an unconventional manner. Since the Saintess is supposed to make important decisions regarding the country, she is suppose to posses some levels of wisdom. While the Saintess here has good grades, she is s*upid in other matters. She is way too idealistic. She is so far out of reach from reality. ("Living under such idealism will forever prevent her from becoming a pillar of strength for this nation.") Thus, MC must "guide" her by giving her criticism and the likes, which would make her a villainess in the eyes of outsiders. (MC is really smart and possesses great wisdom from a very young age about economics, politics, etc. which the King had discovered by testing her over the years--she was basically a genius, thus they asked her for help.) In a way, you could see this as her following the main storyline. It makes you think whether in the real plot of the otome game the villainess was really just trying to guide the Saintess.... Far fetched, but it's still pretty interesting how the villainess is pushed to become one with an interesting goal.

It went from fluffy to downright dark. It felt like the author abandoned the capture target's backstory so that she can emphasize the MC's self-paced blackening. I loved it! She's a villain and she doesn't shy away from it. She's badass!

I love Alicia's character. Her motivation to become a villainess might seem dumb, but her head and her heart is in the right place lol. She's whip-smart and can actually dish out a good tongue-lashing against the dumbass heroine. And I absolutely respect her savage nature. This girl doesn't need a hero to save the day!

The male capture targets though... they're dumb as bricks. Not to mention blind as a bat. They're all too busy simping over their oh-so-precious heroine that they stop using their brains. And idc for... more>> that Prince Duke kid (he has the s*upidest name ever I swear). Even the king and his royal advisors turn to Alicia for advise regarding state affairs??? I fear for the future of their country.

Plot's good so far. We're finally seeing Alicia acting like a true villainess and killing people left and right. She's so cool. I wish she would just leave everything and run away with Gilles to rule their own territory lol. <<less

I'm not too far in the story unlike y'all chapter 230 readers but it's okay, I guess. It's a bit annoying when she does that "I'll try my best to be a villainess" but she (kinda) fails at it. She's not really my type of a female protagonist. But hey, what do you expect when you're reading a villainess novel like this. I kind of feel like she's going to be super dense with feelings in the future, which also annoys me.

Its generally pretty nice, she actually has a... more>> decent personality besides being an airhead (you might like it but I don't).

One thing that bugs me a lot is how OP she is though. The author really made her have over the top learning abilities. She bulldozes through a book in ten minutes... That's not normal. It's fine if she had some kind of golden finger or buff of some kind, but they just go "oH she's a genius"???? Makes me kind of mad. What is she reading? A children's book?

It's not that bad if you read it after reading a tr*shy novel, but I just finished a REALLY good novel, so my expectations are kind of high. Welp, I'm dropping it. <<less

OP protagonist!! If you don't like this you won't like this novel. I do though. XD

Alicia is so fun. Somehow she's so unique and cute in her way of thinking. I really like her.

All the capture targets seem alright. The prince seems nice too.

... more>> Sadly this novel does lack women. So far only MC, her mother (who has like 3 lines so far) and the future heroine are the only ones in it.

Seeing as that's the only thing I'm disappointed about, it won't change my opinion of it much. Not a masterpiece of writing, but definitely very entertaining to read. I recommend this! <<less

I felt my blood boiled since around ch 78

And continued so until 115. I binged reading from the start til the current chapter. Holy sh*t I felt my body became warmer the entire time LOL

((You all will surely understand what is villainess in her term.))

... more>>

The heroine here is rly a typical flower brained character and MC wants to fight against it lololol

So its more like

Damsel in distress VS Strong independent whamen who need no man


I rly want to scream at the heroine and all the other insignificant followers of her including capture targets.


and also the fckn heartless king and other 4 aristocrats who treated her like a discarded piece.

I alrdy smelled something weird from uncle Will since the beginning lol. Hoping he'll be the trump card to flip over this fcked up country.


Not sure whether I can continue riding the rollercoaster of rage 8'D

Not as bad as tate no yuusha. But still makes me want to throw my phone while reading this.

So far there's no in depth explanation abt the capture targets and still in MC POV.

I need to cool down <<less

Really good. A top tier Otome reincarnation. I mean, its really up there.

I recommend this not only to people who like otome reincarnation, but to everyone.

But there is one weird thing. And that is the image of a little girl bullying a 16 year old + teenager. It doesn't matter in the narrative of the story, but when you think about it, it is actually quite funny imagining who is essentially a child bullying a girl reaching adulthood. Heh.

Overall this one was okay for me so far. I wouldn't say 'girl trying to be a villainess but fails because she's too kind and has morals' is a cliche exactly since I haven't seen it done too much yet but this definitely plays out exactly how you think it would. She unintentionally gets the attentions of all the boys that the heroine is supposed to 'romance', and she's super good at anything she puts her mind to. Cliche and lighthearted and predictable, but still a good time if you... more>> don't mind those things.

As for the things I didn't like so much...


The thing that bothers me about this is that Alicia has that attitude of 'I'm not like other girls'. In regards to being a villainess, she says herself that she's 'not like other girls' because she doesn't want to be the heroine and instead wants to be the villainess. And then the story starts and though she believes she's doing her best to become a villainess, her natural personality/ethics/morality is totally that of a heroine. Not being self aware enough to realise that is okay, really, but then I got to the part about Duke.

I'm pretty sure he's the ML, and it's pretty obvious that he likes Alicia (this isn't about the weird five year age gap but I also don't like it... ten and fifteen is way too different for me to consider even being comfortable with this). Even Alicia suspects this herself, though she thinks 'surely it's just platonic...' she also has this moment where she says 'I'm not naive about these things like other girls' and then just... is? She's like 'I'm not blind I know he likes me... but just as friends haha surely not romantically' and it's just... annoying. The lack of self awareness really started to bug me at that point, especially because she seems to think she's different and not like the other girls when in actuality she is.

This kind of ignorance/naivety is like kinda cute in the beginning I guess... and then the more I read the more it started to tick me off. Now I've decided to just drop this all together... it's cute and fun most of the time but not good enough to make me want to stick it out and sit through more of this nonsense skldgjsdg.


There are a lot of novels that I would categorise as brainless fun... aka it's good as long as you don't think to hard about anything, and I'd probably put this in that category, but it seems even for me, someone who loves brainless fun, this one's a bit too much for me in some aspects. <<less

I had started this one and continued it because even though there were serious bits mixed in the story was just a fun read. I had looked forward to reading the updates up until chapter 61 the turn seems so out of place. I feel the the author is making out of character twist while screeching out randomly “plot twist” which makes no sense.

Her wanting to be the villain really doesn’t matter, she’s a 10 year old child to them - what right do these grown ass men have to... more>> put that amount of strain on her? Which governing body would ever decide to force a 10 year old become a handler for a teenage girl with an absurd amount of magical power? Even if Alicia can use magic it’s absolutely ridiculous to assume a beginner can control someone with such vast powers. Aside from a governing body, a noble child of said member of the governing body allowing their only daughter to be used in such a fashion is laughable.

They won’t allow her to test her swordsmanship, question her loyalty, and basically hide her away when the know that she’s a genius... this turn of events is a story breaking plot twist. <<less

Great novel and very enjoyable to read, but something is really annoying me, her definition of a "villainess" is very childish and naive, like srsly? Bullying? U said you want to be a villainess that will go down in history and not a brat 10yo like bruh, being a great villain is to use ur intelligence in evil matters or being the bloody duchess not bullying a frickin 15yo, plus one of the things I really hate is her not paying attention to what other feels for her like cant... more>> you just be grateful for the good life you have and pay attention to people around you cuz only bad life gang have a reason to be villaines unlike u that is living lavish but still mess around like a 5yo, like pls she still thinking that they are just otome characters but no not anymore!. <<less

Surprisingly interesting. Level of misunderstanding and OPness is high but strangely acceptable, plot is pretty solid (at least in comparison to most of genre standarts). Translation is good, too.

In summary - worth reading.

[Spoiler Alert: I'm too lazy to use Spoiler tag]

I like the MC. Kinda disagree with how they made her OP though. I like OP characters but I just dislike that there's no buildup to her OPness. She's OP. Just that. Fortunately, her personality is entertaining to read... and probably the only good thing about this story???

Heroine on the other hand is annoying. She's too idealistic, WAY too idealistic. I kinda hated how easily male captures fall for her, even though, a moment ago, all of them were flattering MC. It... more>> was as if they were brainwashed into liking the heroine. No one is questioning her, including the country's leader, the King... except for one of the MC's brother. He had sus on Heroine and probably the sparkling hope I had left for the other male captures. I really don't care about other male captures but I, at least wanted MC's brothers to believe in MC which they did, just a moment before they met Heroine. That's why I was suspicious if Heroine had an ability to hypnotize people unconsciously.

Honestly, I wonder why they made MC that young. She's younger than Heroine! It made the shipping between Duke × MC feels weird, if they ever go that way. It's unsure if Duke is gonna be the ML of this novel, although it implied that it might be him, considering the illustration covers and all that.

Personally, Gilles might be better match than Duke. Again, I don't even know if there's romance in the story.

As for the King and the top ranking people of the country, they seem foolish enough to ask advice from MC who's 8-10 at the time. Although I'm unsure about Duke, I cannot wait for him to replace this foolish king ah. Furthermore, he doesn't fall for the heroine so I have a little bit hope that he could be a good king in the future. If he is also s*upid, I'll be really worried about the future of the country so MC should stop realizing her dream as villainess and just start planning to immigrate to another country ah. You can still be a villainess in another country. <<less

Giving a 5 based off the setup of the character. I enjoy the smart and competent but also airheaded MC. It's fun and enjoyable to read. I can't say a lot for the plot yet, and honestly won't expect anything unique. But the villainess genre is pretty saturated and in my opinion, this one has a character that stands out.
