Leo, a young scrooge who loves money more than anything, unexpectedly had his body swapped with a beautiful young girl who had unusual circumstances named Leonora.

Leonora was the young daughter of a fallen marquisate family who, in the past, were driven out of noble society by false charges. Now, by various circumstances, she was to attend the academy for young nobles. Since she didn’t want to, with black magic she tries to escape her fate.

Offering a gold coin as compensation, Leonora lured Leo into going to the academy in her place.

Leo, now “Leonora,” had only planned to show her face at the academy before fleeing. However, with unmatched beauty and peculiar values, “Leonora” got herself mistakenly known as a “pure maiden” who attracted the attention of not only a marquisate couple and the imperial princess, but even the first imperial prince of the empire.

This is the story of Leonora von Harkenberg who would later be known as the「Altruistic Saintess」.

I usually loves misunderstanding comedy like "Angel Densetsu, "Tillea's Worries", "I Said Make My Abilities Average!" and many others, but unfortunately I can't like this one. I can't laugh at characters who got their life screwed up by the misunderstandings produced by the main characters. Initially it's quite entertaining, but after passing sometime the jokes becomes forced and nearing the end of the series it's completely not funny.

Hmm... How to say this.... If you're expecting a sweet and gentle misunderstanding story.... Stop at chapter 2 or give it a miss altogether.

The story isn't bad by all means, it has an interesting concept and idea though I personally think its rather predictable so far. If you like "I got mistaken as a genius" then I suggest giving this at least a try.

I have to question on how in the hell so many people got "fooled" by the MC's acting is rather ridiculously improbable yet it happen anyway.... more>> The biggest thing that I have issue with is that I found the MC rather hard to like.

The internal monologues were rather dumb and kind of makes me wish he/she'd just shut up since he/she seriously makes me wonder if he/she's bipolar. Moreover, forr a "scrooge", he/she certainly doesn't act like one. Simply put, he's not greedy enough. In fact, other than the continuous pinning over a lost coin, very few sign showed the MC as a scrooge. I can tell that the author was struggling to imagine how a scrooge actually think.

Still, as long as you don't think too much about it, this novel is still quite enjoyable. <<less

So far, I had a good laugh when reading this series. MC is a natural born master of tsukkomi (if you read Shinka no Mi you should be able to understand), while heroine (former?) is a my-own-pace character.

I can give an exact review as only 1 prologue + 2 chapters currently translated, so for now I'll give a 4★ simply because it's hilarious. Might revise my score on later date though.

I love how Leo's love for money (and how the language filter casted on him) gets him into various misunderstandings. Fun story and hilarious misunderstandings! :D Very nice. Looking forward to reading more chapters. I hope someone will pick this up. Thanks to the translators. :)

The misunderstandings are all connected and they keep escalating in proportions.

And this is why I love this story.

A good misunderstanding novel in my opinion. It's one of those where everything the main character does get's interpreted positively and raises other people's opinion towards the main character who is obviously oblivious to it.

In this story, the cause of these misunderstandings is often due to the main character forgetting about the fact that he, Leo is currently in Leena's body. I guess you would need a certain degree of suspension of disbelief to enjoy this kind of misunderstanding comedy because the main character is just unbelievably dumb sometimes.

At glance,... more>> it may seem like Leo got the short end of the stick and got his life screwed over by Leena. Indeed, Leena is a douche most of the time but they have actually made a contract (1 gold coin as compensation), therefore Leo is simply fulfilling the contract. Not only that, he get's education he wouldn't be able to obtain under normal circumstances as an orphan as well as being able to enjoy luxurious foods (albeit it's Leena's body eating).

In short, whilst needing some suspension of disbelief to fully enjoy this story, there are comedic misunderstandings which should provoke at least a few laughs and therefore this novel deserves a chance. <<less
