I like it. I really did. I was on a reading spree where most of the MCs who regain their memory of a past life and reincarnated as a game character have ended up as someone who is completely oblivious to the affections around them. To clarify: it means they believe they’re the matchmaker and don’t even consider the fact the characters could fall for her. What I liked about this character is that
... more>>

she accepts the fact her actions have changed characters and interacts with them as if they are human. She slowly becomes part of the world instead of treating herself like an outsider, or treating it like a game. She’s not purposely flamboyant in acting out her villainous role which honestly makes some MC just seem ditzy. Even better, we have a single love interest. I’m not against reverse-harems. Heck I love them but it’s nice to see the feelings between everyone, or a certain pair develop.

The ending was unexpected. I expected the secret character. I knew the heroine would end up liking the MC and somewhat worship her. She was given her own little romance too and that was bonus. What really surprised me was that final scene with the notebook. I had basically forgotten the world MC as living in was a game and the notebook really emphasised it. There’s a little hint to the mysteries of this ‘game world’ she knows. In the end MC really accepts the fact she is alive and living in a real world and not a game. So what if it’s similar to a game she played in her past life? It is of no consequence to her and she is just going to pave her own path in this world.


It was a pleasant read and I recommend it to people who likes a MC who knows when to stand her ground and when to yield. A little yandere drama never hurt. It honestly has a great plot. <<less

If there's something lacking from translated otome-based novel in general, it would be romance. Other novel protagonist are either too busy escaping his/her bad end, too dense to create proper romance, or are still too young for a relationship. It's otome game, where's my sweet romance moment (#`皿´) /

Reincarnated into Yandere Otome Game, while not having too much rabu~rabu~ moment, have one of the best relationship among the novel that I've read. You could really see Wolf and Lycoris's closeness, and how they influence each other's life. The MC is... more>> aware of the feeling around her (and not only love related) and act properly. While I am not a big fans of yandere, I have to say that they are a good thriller source.

+ points for the illustration. I really like Lycoris and Wolf's design <<less

It's definitely more interesting than some of the other generic "reincarnation otome game"esque stories, but since there is the tag "reverse harem", I somewhat worried it might result into the generic harem ending.

Sigh, but that might be what I get for reading it, fully aware it might turn into another burikko novel.
But for now, 5 stars it is.

101% recommend. This is one of the best otome game transmigration stories out there. Very nice plot with good character development. Each character is very likeable. The MC especially is a very level headed and has a clear view of what she wants. She isn't dense like other MC's of otome novels. Regarding the yandere part, it's there but not the focus of the story. The plot progresses in such a way that you are forced to come back and wish for new chapters.

the MC regains a bit memory from her past life, that is, she is a villainess of an otome game, which genre includes yandere. She determines to live longer, unlike the original game, she tries to change some of the capture targets' personality, though she thinks not much changed because of the limitation of her memory. The story was quite enjoyable and many of the characters introduced are, be warned, yandere. The plot and the comedy are quite good as well. Her personality is the best XD looking forward to... more>> her ending. <<less

I love our MC, and she became my fav MC so far.

... more>>

MC fell in love with ML, and be true with her feeling. Not like some other, she didn't avoid ML just because it might lead her to happy ending route which was BAD for herself. Well, she even befriends the heroine in a blink.

Without being OP chara, she loves and be loved. Solve every struggle with more or less normal way. Normal... I mean, she act like a human being. A child need adults for some big problems. A girl sometimes should be protected by her lover, brother, or friend. And of course, by no mean she is weak.

MC is strong. She knew when to protect, and when to be protected.


Even with Yandere attached in title and tag, I find this novel so heartwarming. To the point of the villain looked like a victim, I ended up wish a happy future for him. <<less

It's different from other otome theme stories. It didn't have to use the readers hate against annoying characters, or sad tragedies to move it along. Every character was well portrayed. I usually don't like the "heroines" in these types of stories because they usually get in the way of the MC, but in the end of chapter 21 I really loved her.

I would have to say, this is a really nice read, and I loved it. Also the translator did a fabulous job, and it flows amazingly.

Though it does... more>> say possive male lead, he's not overbearing (yet) which is nice. And the males are not drooling over the MC, so I would say it's pretty realistic.

Just read it. <<less

I like this novel a lot. Been binge reading otome game novels since they started out, and I have to say this is one of the great ones. I'm not giving this a whole five stars because I feel like there's something missing in the storyline. Perhaps I want to see more of each character's growth before they start meeting the heroine? I'm not too sure lol. But still, this is a really good novel, though the translation only comes at least once a month (^◇^;)

The MC is placed in a reverse harem story where all the capturable characters are yanderes due to childhood traumas or random quirks in their personalities. Not wanting to die, she set out to change them, and somehow obtaining their affections in the process.

The MC is a cute character, and the male leads aren't so bad since she prevented them from being as warped, but the story itself feels like its missing a huge chunk in the middle. It starts when she's a child, meeting 2 of the male... more>> leads, and after they've settled into their roles, the story just automatically jumps a few years into a new setting to add in the original protagonist, and other capture targets.

While we can pretty much make out the missing years, it'd still be nice for the author to include a few chapters as they grow into the role. While the MC would also be given more opportunities to demonstrate her personality.

Overall, the characters are quite likeable, and the story itself is cute and has some depth, but the fact that most of these scenes are mostly there to explain why the male leads fall for her or to sideline a major event, somewhat limits their values to reactive actors who just respond to a situation or development that the game/author throws at them. <<less

Each character is portrayed fairly well in this novel, with all characters that do "flock to Lycoris" having their own stories to tell. Even if some of the stories are not shown until later, the MC is shown to be rather caring of those around her and is not oblivious to their feelings.

I especially like the interaction between Wolf and Lycoris uwu They are such a well paired couple that is able to understand each other and be able to rely on the other no matter the circumstances.

This novel is... more>> one of the few otome-game ones that doesn't feel like it's just going through the scenarios. It is interesting in the sense that the stories drag you in down to the perspective of the characters. Also bonus points for it not to be a generic run through of something the MC already knows the ending of. <<less
