This is definitely the worst wish-fulfillment otome I've ever read... given that this is a one-shot I'm surprised by just how bad they managed to make it... unless you just want to read constant pretentious bragging by the MC about how great she is from herself and at the end from her fiancee don't read this... Just that and how inferior everyone else is, is literally all there is to this oneshot....

It's about an MC with a unbelievably bad personality that fancies herself super intelligent and above everyone else, especially... more>> now that she's been reincarnated, first half is about how annoyed she is over the heroine trying to become friends with her, how s*upid the heroine is, as well as how s*upid the guys are for liking the heroine and how much she dislikes the heroine for bothering her by trying to become her friend, second half is about how great she is inherently and how great she is now that she's reincarnated having scored highly in school thanks to her prior knowledge and made great efforts towards making sure that her body turned out as beautiful as possible. Out of nowhere a rich/powerful heir of Mishima's Group, a group that pretty much controls the countries commerce appears having apparently fallen for her, and immediately upon appearing he starts condescendingly talking down towards the heroine for not recognizing how great the MC is, praising the MC for how amazing she appeared to be thanks that one conversation he had with her in the past, he's really obedient to the MC's whims in a way that comes off as being a pet dog rather than a human, they marry, and the MC lives happily ever after the end. (Note: They show the fiancee's perspective and yeah his falling in love is really out of nowhere, all of a sudden when he first meets her he falls in love with her at first sight thanks to her "bunch of compliments in a pretentious tone") <<less

I'm giving a 5-star review for this because I have to compensate for the 1-star review that I don't think that it deserved.

While the plot itself isn't great, it is coherent, and I personally am indifferent to it. It is a classic example of a story that isn't bad but isn't good either.

Overall, a slightly below average story, but satisfying nonetheless.

Fluffy diabetes.

Don't go into this expecting FULL DEPTH, complicated plot. No, this is just a straightforward story of a young girl who knows what is important in life and so she pursues a good future.

It's just a quick cute fun read!

It's nothing special, it's honestly just your "lol alpha b*tch thinks she's the best but turns out the person you try to make fun of is better than you" kind of story. Same as trying to pick on a dude whose the CEO, this story is just the heroine trying to flaunt her boyfriends but turns out the MC's prettier, smarter, her man is hotter, just overall better than you. I don't think it's a terrible story, but because of it's length it's too short to annoy you but too... more>> shallow to give you any appreciation. <<less

Interesting premise, but the ending ruined it. It made the MC shallow. It made the side characters shallow. It was just bad writing.

If this is ever turned into an actual series, I hope the author re-writes the MC out of her "I'm better than you, but I just decided not to show it. So you better be grateful"-kind of feeling she gives off. As well as making it so the other characters aren't so hung up on appearances.

Haha, it's one of those one-up the heroine kinda stories.

It starts off with the MC being logical, in that it's less that she's reincarnated into an Otome Game, but that's she's a reincarnated person. So ace those exams! Plan your future! Avoid teenage drama!


This plays off later when the heroine tries to show off her harem and is smacked down by the MC's high spec older fiance.

This is a good story, though it doesn't really go into the details. It's like a "you're bored and want something quick to read" kind of story. It's still a good read and the face slap was hilarious.

So, if you got nothing else to do, might as well take 5-10 minutes to read this.

Highly recommend to be read.💯

This MC really is a hidden gem

"I Reincarnate into otome game?"

"So what?"

"I'll just do whatever I want with my life!"

That's how the MC live her own life without even caring about the game at all.


She even ends up being better than the heroine bit*h & her harem dogs in the end


Truly a remarkable story 🖒❤

This is a good faceslap oneshot from a super highspec woman hiding her charm versus another reincarnated heroine who looks at her with disgust. With the cute and reliable fiance of hers for the greatest reversal that put the heroine in shame and her entourage a stalker of the MC...

Also read the cute love at first sight sequel of the fiance lololol

I quite like the plot that she isn't your average person but I don't like how the capture targets are so easily swayed by her better looks...

This is mediocre at best. Typical cookie cutter story where the mob protagonist is leagues better than the manipulative heroine and everyone that isnt the protagonist and her fiance are brainless tr*sh only interested in a pretty face. I'm not sure why this has so many good reviews for how basic the plot is even as a one shot. There are better mob centered stories out there that treat their characters with respect and not made to be props to make the protagonist look better.

I have mixed feelings about this.

At first it, seemed nice to me and I liked how MC decided to focus on herself. But then she started commenting on how heroine was so annoying and that she was better than heroine... It kind of killed my sympathy for MC.

(I was annoyed when the heroine intimidated her and the pretentious love interests pissed me off, but MC was so self-focused that she made the story die)

Considering this is a Oneshot, there's nothing much to expect from the story.

Even though the story is one of those where the MC is aware of her mob status in the otome game, she does nothing to interfere with the plotline.

The best part of MC is that she simply focuses on self improvement and making the best of herself, ... more>>

however it's annoying how all the Capture targets suddenly turn towards her on her reveal of her being beauty with brains and completely abandon the heroine they have been desperately chasing. But I also like how the MC found a partner who she can connect with and is loyal to him despite being in a world where OP characters like her are being constantly stalked by admirers. (It's satirical though)


I mean can you show men as less fickle here and a little more dedicated even of they're supposed to be part of reverse harem game. It's simply a turn off. That's why (-1) 🌟.

And I 💯 agree with KuroInfinity 's comment <<less

this is my first review, please keep that in mind.

So I'm just going to say it, I like this story. although its short I really did enjoyed it. To be honest, I saw this a month ago and was genuinely curious about it. But I decided not to once I saw a bad review on how bad the main character is...

Given the fact that I've read a ton of novel where the main character is like that I thought that this was going to be really bad and decided to... more>> just ignore it. But now that I've read it... its not bad at all!

The main character is carefree and just really doesn't want to be involved in the drama and that's why she doesn't want to be friends with the heroine.

Other reasons for this is probably because the heroine is a reincarnated person that thinks just because she is the heroine that everyone should love her. though this is just my guess because the heroine doesn't really show it but rather she mumbles things like "why is Miki (mc) getting notice by that hot guy when I'm the heroine?"

it just gives me that vibe that she is supposed to be the center of attention because she is the heroine.

but thats it, I really like the story. <<less

This is a quick, delightful (and delectable) read. It's very satisfying, but not satisfying at the same time. There needs to be more... I know there's a sequel, I've read it, but it just explains the events of

... more>>

How Keigo and Miki meet.


I was really hoping for


More dry Heroine jealousy and jaw-dropping salt. I want to see her fall from grace, her reverse harem stolen and beaten up to shreds by Keigo, I want to see Miki absolutely dominate her in every single state possible. I love to soak up the sad, salty tears of little MsMcHeroine. Get absolutely dunked on you crapstain of a girl. Your reverse harem ain't worth sh*t to my boy Keigo. Keigo is MVP and boss. And Miki, what an absolute UNIT. Uber intelligence, uber skill, uber beauty. Get f*cked, heroine.


But, nonetheless, a very good read, makes you desire for more. <<less

I love the story but I fell a bit frustrated, this storyline is very short.

This story deserved to be more developed but because I love the story, I rate 4 stars!

Pretty cute and simple oneshot. Though the part where Keigo removed her pigtails and her glasses made me cringe so hard. As another reviewer mentioned, it is kinda wish-fulfillment but nevertheless, it IS a oneshot. It's meant to be a lighthearted read. I'd happily read this if it got turned into a series (cause I want more of Keigo and Miki) with way less cringe.

The translation was good that it let me understand the whole story, though there were some places that could use some editing (like with [Laugh], I'm... more>> guessing it's actually (笑) in the raws, which actually translates to lol instead). But regardless, the translator did a good job. A cute find. <<less

This one shot is so cute and it cheered me up after a bad day.

Miki and Keigo are so cute together, I wish it was longer but I also like that it was a oneshot because sometimes I just want to read something short and sweet.

This is a very simple and cute one shot about the MC living her life instead of being the Friend A of the Heroine. If you’re looking for something simple, fluffy, and about breaking away from a “bad” friend, this is a simple fun read.
