Hello! I am Goblin, the translator of this webnovel. I would like to mention here that I will edit the first few chapters again to increase the quality when I have the time. I am currently very busy, but hopefully I will be free soon.

First of all, I would like to point out two major aspects of this webnovel:

    • This is a slice of life novel.
    • This is a fluffy romance novel.
Since this is a slice of life story, it stands to reason that the events would be somewhat random, without any major drama or tension. Yes, the pacing is a bit slow, but its supposed to be that way. So, criticizing it for doing the things it's supposed to do is a bit wrong.

As for the romance aspect of the story, there's plenty of it. This is a slice of life story at its core, and it tries to show the romance between two people who can't be honest about their feelings in a very unique manner. But, we do see the two slowly fall for each other. That's the whole premise of this story

to see how the villainess changes chapter by chapter. And, the story will end when she changes completely.

As for the writing style of the author, I can only say that, I have read a lot worse. The writing is pretty good considering that this is a webnovel. Writing a novel is very hard, so give the guy some credit.

As for my rating for the novel, I'll be giving it a shameless 5 star.

Now, for my translation, you are always welcome to criticize my translation. I am always trying to get better, and I am very regular in my release schedule, I have been that way for two years, and plan to continue as long as I humanly can. So, I would be grateful if you point out any mistakes you might find, I will gladly fix it.

To sum up, read this novel if you enjoy a slow paced fluffy romance story.

That's all from me.

Its good, really good. From the title I expected your average "Shower the villain/villainess in kindness till they are a good person" trope you see time and time again. This however, is a bit different where the MC is actually mean to the villainess as she is to spoilt from doting parents. This interesting take sets up a refreshing story with good banter between the two main leads. Some qualms I have about this novel is that the MC adapts too easily. Like

(Minor spoiler)

... more>>

After randomly transmigrating into novel he doesn't question anything and just goes along with things, he exercises and practices swordsmanship for 6 months straight vigorously till he has wounds and bruises and on top of that already deals with the villainess scolding while being nice to her and maintaining etiquette. We also don't get any information on MCs past life. Does he miss his parents? What will they think when he's gone? Does he have any lingering attachments? None of this is even glossed over and it would be a interesting plot point the author could of explored to give the MC a bit more depth


This review may be a bit to early seeing as there is only 7 chapters but the novel seems promising and I think needs more attention for its freshness. Side note - the translation is kinda iffy at times sometimes it will have an out of place word or an incorrect sentence no where near the level of MTL though. Some translators think its okay to MTL an novel and call it a translation. Seriously one of my favorite novels was straight up MTLed halfway through the series. IK being a TLer is hard job and all but MTL just ruins the novel and my immersion anyways MTL rant over give this novel a try its worth a read <<less

The romance is the main draw of this story, but it's sorely lacking. The progress is glacial. The events all feel random and strung together without much overarching intent. The MC is... bland and pretty useless. The first few chapters emphasize how hard he's worked at swordsmanship and magic, but then the author turns around and makes him incredibly weak.

... more>>

When he starts teaching the FL magic, she learns things in a day that took him weeks. Same with swordsmanship.


I dropped this when:


... the little girl character from the future appeared. Sloppy time travel is always a turn off, but in an already bad novel, it's the final nail in the coffin.

The ordinary storyline and shallow characterizations make this novel stand out, but the writing skill is what ultimately makes it a success. The sweet and heartwarming romance between the ML and FL is beautifully portrayed and improves as the story progresses. The misunderstanding between the two leads to cute and caring moments, and the cliché ending is made unforgettable by the writer's mastery.

If you're a fan of fantasy romance, this novel will not disappoint and is sure to be a hit with its genre-focused approach

A fun slice of life/romance where two main characters with relatively bad personality make fun of each other.

The personalities of the MC and ML are witty and introspective and its been amusing seeing their relationship blossom so far.

Totally recommend

1st time of writing a review but it is definitely a 5 star to me. There are minor grammatical errors in some chapters but still better than other translations I've read.

The story is quite good and has a good foundation on the romance part. While others may think that it is slow, I genuinely think it worked for the better.

It's funny how the MC and the FL try to one up each other, while the MC wins most of the time taming the villainess


The misunderstandings is also hilarious and not frustrating.


For example, FL thinking that MC will die due to a medicine in his magic pouch


As for the time travel part, it will be explained later.


How their daughter was actually sent to the past due to MC dying in the original timeline resulting in his father sacrificing his skill and giving the wish to FL. FL then wished MC to have poison magic, make MC's fav theater to be better, and to see their daughter earlier since they haven't had the chance in the original timeline.

She has no redeeming qualities for the majority of the novel to this point, and the reveal that's meant to seem like a redemption arc, feels like its not followed up with enough genuine change in the fML character's behavior, nor the protagonist's.

At this point it feels like its falling into a formula and its disheartening to feel like my time was wasted.

It's slow pace romance. It's fluffy. And it's really fun to read!

About the original plot. It's really interesting and different! Instead the plot going astray from original story because of our MC doing, this one is

going different from original because this story timeline is not the same with original novel but it's after the original story happened.

The description does a pretty good job of describing the relationship dynamic in the novel. Instead of being kind, the MC is mean to the FML. He's already tried being the "nice" guy, but it doesn't work out. Now, it's always about who can one-up the other. FML almost always ends up losing and getting embarrassed. As a result, FML mostly hates MC and wants him to suffer for his wrongdoings. Normally, as a villainess, FML is supposed to be the one bullying MC, but looks like the roles are... more>> reversed. <<less

Yes it does brush over quite a bit of the setting but it's an enjoyable read. I'm not the best at describing romantic relationships but it is similar to the romance in Ending Maker if you've ever read it.

If you are looking for humor. If you're looking for a fluff. If you are looking for a relationship and character development. If you're looking for something light. If you are looking for something really cool translated [Probs for TL]

You found it.

Cool interactions between ML and FL, "We vs world" attitude. A large dose of humor and fluffy chapters.

You can relax and you can break away from the gloomy weather.

No drama, no harems or anything else that can spoil humor.

strong recommendation

A fairly standard kuudere romance comedy, but I ended up dropping it. The translation's very stiff and awkward to read, though. The TL should probably get a proofreader (if this isn't a machine translation).
