It maybe a little bit early to review this novel, but I really like the MC, Mariel. She's like a combination of Naedoko (from manga koi dano ai dano) and Alicia (from Shinigami-hime no saikon). She is an eccentric girl, from outside she is just a plain girl with ordinary noble background, but inside, she is a keen observer and has vivid imagination but she is cautious enough to not let people see her true self.

Her fiancee, Simeon (translated as Simon) is her ultimate moe, a good-looking glasses guy... more>> with black belly personality (in her imagination). Unknown to her, he already took interest of her from several years earlier and knew her eccentricity.

I'm looking forward for their relations to grow. <<less

I normally don’t give reviews so early in a translation, but I felt this one was worth it.

This story is quite refreshing so far, with a “plain, ”* but intelligent MC and her seemingly extraordinarily lucky engagement to an ikemen of high rank. In truth, each is hiding some secrets from the other, and I am looking forward to the reveal and how their relationship flourishes, as they seem, to me, to be quite well matched.

*Maybe it’s just the cover, or in comparison with the other ladies around her, but... more>> honestly, who would call someone like that “plain”? Maybe I just have weird tastes... <<less

The story starts off alright at first. Marielle is a noble, who perfers being a wallflower to better observe society. And in order to not spoil too much, lets just say Marielle is a fantasizer and has an overactive imagination.

Doesn't sound too bad right? And thats what I though too. But I may be biased, I'm turned off by books immediatly if there are idiotic, supremely happy-go-lucky, or MCs that lack sensibilities and basic common sense.

She seemed normal enough, a noble not taken in by the glamour and egos of... more>> society. Unfortunatly as you read on, her tendencies to fantasize gets annoying. It intrudes upon sensibilities and common sense. Like literally, in the face of trouble she's pretty much like "The maginificance of a true villianness lady! How quickly sje plots! How vile her words! Ufufufu I must remember this experience!" And this is pretty much the template (with allowance for changes in the given situation) for almost everything that drives the plot. It's freaking annoying.

Also, I'll like to note that marielle is an unrealiable narrator as well. If you're looking for a cute (?), nonsensical easy read I guess this is for you. If not, you might want to pass on this book.

Also, for those who read through my long review and want a spoiler see below.

Spoiler

She's an author that publishes dramatic chick-flick romance novels secretly. Which resulted to her becoming some plot manic to the point it overrides basic sensibilities and common sense (you can almost say shes a 'hentai' for plots). So yeah, "The maginificance of a true villianness lady! How quickly she plots! How vile her words! Ufufufu I must remember this experince" is quite a literal summed up internal monologue she has that repeats throughout. Marielle doesnt care about society at all in my opinion. And although her fantasizes are internal, that doesnt mean it doesnt clue out externally (overt and covert) but other characters pretty much conveniently ignore them all and the MC goes on with her self-centered life of going Ufufufu for various things. In my opinion she becomes more unlikable with her fantasys as the plot goes on (but at this point there's only 3.3 chapters, so maybe it'll change. But I'm quitting the novel after this review.) Her character is also very shallow and the author has yet to provide any subtance to her character growth and depth.

I like this story, the balance of MC and ML pov is good. And both of them is calculated people.

Spoiler

ML is first who notice he like MC a little by little, but after getting advised by captain, he become a little rush to say his feeling. Dat was so cute~
