On one spring evening when I was eight years old, I, Erica, Duke of Aurelia’s daughter, realized something.

Huh, I have gotten reincarnated into a fantasy world, haven’t I?

Moreover, it was the romance-fantasy girl game that had the reputation of being bloody, 『Liber Monstrorum ~Phantom Beasts and the Winter Princess~』

The face reflected in the mirror was that of the villainess character of that game.

After repeatedly harassing many characters, including the heroine, she would die without exception, signaling the beginning of an event called the bizarre incident. She was a villain who deserved to get the consequences!

—I absolutely don’t want a destiny like that, though?

No, for me who has remembered the memory of my previous life, there would be no such thing.

In my previous life, I was harassed immensely by an irrationally angry yandere man who proclaimed ‘She is absolutely in love with me.’

My cause of death, too, was from being stabbed by another yandere man who I only had talked with a few times……

Now that I have become the haughty villainess Erica, I shouldn’t encounter more misunderstandings like with the previous life’s yandere men anymore, right……?

In that case, it will be fine as long as I deal with the death flags that I may have raised myself.

All right! First of all, before the bizarre incident begins at the Magic Academy, I will strike down the death flags accordingly!!

—Or so I thought, but it seems that I am about to die.

Eeh, how did this happen—!?

Its great action packed mystery of a villainous-reborn-in-otome-game setting. With wonderful translation.

Like, seriously. The first arc was practically Action/Mystery/Suspense. With some fluff padded at the start and end of the arc.
The second arc had worldbuilding galore and then buckets of suspense.

What I particularly enjoyed was how the protagonist was ridiculously outmatched by the arc boss. Like seriously, it felt that a Deus ex Machina was needed to get out alive but the solution was set up chapters ago.

For people who like the Otome setting in small doses, and Fantasy... more>> Action Mysteries. <<less

Unlike other "Reincarnated into a Game World" or "Transported into Another World" novels that I red so far, this one is my favorite. The MC is not obligate to use the knowledge of the modern past life she lived like a job, hobby or anythings to keep her self apple to live in her new current world. She only want to avoid the death of her reborn character and by that the story become more the adventure fantasy story I usually like. For people who are looking for romance story this one isn't the one for you.

And thanks for the translator. The work you done so far is amazing.

I like how each arc tells a different story rather than a return to a status-quo. The MC travels a lot and that leads to a lot of world building. There are surprisingly a lot going on in the background being done by the side characters in solving the mystery and the growth of the characters. The MC is brutal and devious to the point that she pulls off the image of a confident villainess while also being full of empathy.

Yip! This novel is rare. I caught up to the latest release in 3 days. The story was so engaging that I couldn't help it. I opened an account just so I could rate it.

The world building is unparalleled, the presentation is neat and it has a different type of charm overall. The culture of the world is very diverse and charming.

The characters are so finely developed and dynamic that even the side characters are really interesting and loveable, all of the characters feel really alive.

I like the mc's ironically... more>> funny internal monologues as well. She gives of the feeling of someone with a slightly twisted sense of humor, I also like her powers. She is extremely powerful in her own unique field, well her friends are just equally powerful if not more than her in their fields so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb or anything.

Finally, the plot!! The mystery and thriller elements are superb!! The first 2 arcs are engaging and full of actions but things start to get serious from the 3rd arc and the novel's dark aspects start to come into view. I'm totally looking forward to seeing what else this novel has in store.

And my salute to the author for her extensive research and thoughts put into developing this one. <<less

I have looked for reincarnated as Villainess Noble novel. Because I was expecting for romance reverse harem. With some slice of life or comedy. at chapter 10 I begin realized... this novel is an action fantasy... at chapter 18. Only a few romance thing. but their action scene is very enjoyable. if you are looking for Action fantasy (Not a romance, comedy or reverse harem) I very recommend it.

One of the best novels I've ever read.

The story and plot is well written and well planned by the author. There is sufficient build-up every arc and the a very satisfying climax and conclusion. Each arc is connected in an over-arching story, with numerous clues to keep up the thrill of the mystery.

As for the characters, so far they are consistent in their characterization (in the most part) and the main characters are sufficiently 3-dimensional that they avoid the usual 2d characterization of the capture targets unlike in most otome... more>> game reincarnation stories.

As of now, the magic school arc is starting. If you like Harry Potter books, you'll definitely like this one. There are also references to alchemical myths, especially the kabal and legends from the middle ages in Europe. I laud the author and translator on the painstaking research on these obscure legends and mythologies to make the world-building very substantive and realistic. <<less

I just found this story the two days ago and I have already caught up to the translations to date. The story is very interesting and the characters all are uniquely developed. I realy like how the characters are not perfect and how the author drops hints about what might play a significant role in later arcs. Can't wait to read more!

I have been keeping up with this novel for a while now and I must say, while it is not perfect, it does hit quite a few good notes! I like the character interactions, and also the growth each of the characters have. It's not major, but its subtle. Characters have flaws (some innate, some due to the environment), we see how they struggle with the expectations (or lack thereof) and how they feel. The "Male Leads" have valid reasons for acting the way they act, each passionate with their... more>> own interests that make them unique from each other.

Erica is an interesting main character. I might have to re-read the early chapters and some of the interludes, but I think it's not that she an 18 year old in an 8 year old body. It's an 8 year old, who had grown up fully as Erica (even her growing up was noted to be... interesting. #no spoilersreadinterlude) before gaining some memories of her previous life. Her actions, principals and character does not just get replaced by a Japanese 18 y.o. So that explains why sometimes... she isn't the brightest. Don't get me wrong, she is immensely talented and bright for her age, but just don't expect adult level, calm decision making 100% of the time. She is genuinely a kind girl who is quite stubborn and brave. Really the admirable character.

Now, personally, where this novel shines to the most is in its world building. It can be tedious reading, but it makes the world come alive! The author has put a lot of effort in making reference to actual things (Egyptian, Greek, etc.) to actually drop hints in the story. Wonderfully descriptive world that isn't an info dump. Good balance.

The plot itself has been quite engaging, you can't quite expect what will happen, but nothing is too bizarre. Romance is definitely slow as it is not the main focus at all right now. Surviving the actually lethal death flags are usually the main focus.

Kudos to the translator for the hard work in both the quality translations, but also the amount of effort it took to explain the references so that we, as the readers, can enjoy the story more. Please give it a shot, at least the first arc! <<less

It's a good novel. I like the world building surrounding it and our main character isn't someone overpowered either.

Each of the characters have their own personality and don't feel dry.

Not that much romance but boy is there a lot of plot twists.

Oh wow oh wow oh wow. Such a pleasure to read, high quality translation, thrilling plot line and with just the right amount of romance and comedy, and at this point it isn't the highlight of the novel. The characters are developing incredibly well and it's such a pleasantly different take on the reborn-as-the-villainess trope, for instance there's a lot of action and adventure allowing it to be fully immersed in the fantasy world and only serves to enhance the reader's experience.

Absolutely, fully recommend. You won't get bored reading this... more>> and it deserves a binge reading session. The MC is an active participant in the plot and quite admirable, the 'love interests' are unique and are undergoing in depth development through the story arcs which is such a refreshing change, even though most of the interactions are from a singular viewpoint you don't miss out on their development at all. The pops of other viewpoints are appreciated though and really exposes the other characters. <<less

This is not exactly the "action" I was looking for, but the plot, the world build, the characteristics of each part of the continent, etc. they are so great. Each character has their personalities combining into unique one, which makes the story colorful and lively. They are not just simply and flat "tsundere", "gentle", "bright",... like the other novels of the same genres, they have deep traits and those are interesting to read.

... more>>

The thing I love most is how each region of the empire in the novel has its own history, natural materials and exotic traits. Such as the north is place of strong swordmen, eastern is mages country, alchemists are in western and the south is where dragon knights located. Even the religion is described in details.

Really a very interesting series with a focus on resolving mysteries of the monster/ yandere world. Could have been a light-hearted novel, but with the protagonists pessimistic outlook the novel feels very suspenseful. My only sadness is that there is a harem tag so there isn't likely to be any solid romance plots (only alot of fluff in that department).

This is what I looking for!

I rarely like romance novel/light novel/manga, but this one is different. I really like Klaus's dere-dere reaction. And his sister... sometimes I think that Ann is the older one. Oh I love Erica and her bad luck. She reminds me of Harold Stokes from My Death Flag. I know these two not even similar, but...i don't know, when Erica hit every jackpot on that labyrinth, it always reminds me of him.

Well, thanks so much for translating this one.

This novel was disappointing. I thought that it's a 4.5 rating so it might be good and I like otome game novel but this one doesn't interest me at all. If you like fantasy and the like then maybe this novel is for you. The balance isn't there, I feel like the author try to balance the novel with action and romance but it just feel shallow to me. Hey maybe I am just the problem or I have been reading too much top tier quality and Just being a... more>> picky person. <<less

This was one of the best transmigration/reincarnation.. Novels that I've read so far. I loved and still love it.

It starts with the typical ''I need to crush death flags'' and ''I'm the villainess'' and ends with an WOOOAH, HOW IS SHE STILL ALIVE -you will understand what I mean-.

I really recommend this light novel. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

The novel's fantastical setting is a pleasure to explore, since the world building was clearly well-researched and thought out. Characters' strengths come with weaknesses, and I like that the author included that concept into the settings of the world itself. I also appreciate the effort the author put in in laying out pieces of information, enough to foreshadow, so when on a second read the readers can go "Oh, I remember this part!" and piece the puzzle themselves. The original game settings that this novel is based on is still... more>> a little unclear to me, but the author's choice to withhold information about the game may be a choice for the plot, and not because it was just a second thought setting that's never to be mentioned again. I'd wait until a majority of the novel is out to make judgement though. The pacing looks fine to me. Each chapters have its own importance, so the plot doesn't drag out for so long until it's a bore, or too fast that it would sacrifice character development. Thus, characters in this novel serve their roles well, and their developments are very nice to witness. This is rare to see in an otome story.

Translation is pretty good too, at least better than the translations of other similar-genre novels. The fragmented sentences initially disrupted my flow of reading (since I'm used to the idea-per-paragraph style in typical novels), but I figure it may be due to the Japanese's formatting style itself. The fragments will take some getting used to especially when trying to figure out who said what, but it shouldn't take away all of the enjoyment in reading.

The MC. Whew, where to start? I appreciate the MC's intellect. Thoughtful, dense with romantic advances, but nevertheless a capable character that doesn't give out the "cheat ability" vibe like Isekai or transmigrate stories tend to do. There will be less of internal struggles and psychological developments that can help readers build an emotional attachment to the MC, since this story is built on action and character interactions to drive the plot forward. On this aspect I believe it's more to the readers' MC preference. If you like plot, this novel is it. If you like to see more psychological developments from the MC, this novel is not it.

I enjoy the little snippets of romance, but because our MC is dense, don't expect much more than one-sided hinting. I generally stay away from sweet-diabetes romance that makes little sense, so this novel is a good, warm ginger tea for me. The one-sided love from male MCs are cute to see, sometimes comical. But for the romance aspect I would wait until the majority of the novel comes out since the MCs are still children. Little you can expect aside from crushes and sweet, protective friends at this point in the novel.

This novel is good enough to have high expectations. I look forward to reading the end of this story. Author and translator, hang in there~ <<less

So far, it is an interesting novel. World building is done well, and it is apparent that the author did his or her research and found inspirations in folktales from a number of cultures. Overall, unique. The mystery makes the novel engaging. In terms of characterization, it is pretty decent. The MC still seems a bit typical to me, but at the same time, I feel like I hardly know her.

... more>>

There are aspects of her that are confusing/contradicting. She is afraid of ghosts (first arc, she mumbles to encourage herself), but not death. At least, she thought of it foremost. She didn't think, "Oh man, I am going to die (since I have never done this before)." Even though the MC died in her previous life due to getting stabbed, she is too calm and confident, which I am not sure where it came from. For example, when she was inflicted by the death curse, she proceeded in finding Ann without showing fear of dying. It is as though dying once made her immune to the idea of her dying. I would think that if one had another chance to live, he or she would generally be more careful and more afraid to lose it a second time. Although the event itself was a death flag, and by saving Ann, she supposedly would save her own life, it still felt like she did not put too much thought into her actions.

What I am trying to say is that I want to see some hesitation and inner struggles that are inherent in human beings, especially for a modern person, when it comes to death. This is even more true because the novel is mostly in first person. The lack of these aspects make her less relatable to the reader in my opinion. Towards the end of the first arc, she used a wand to switch places with Ann, who was about to get possessed by the so-called antagonist. I just find it hard to believe that she was willing to risk her life for someone she met for only a day. But I guess, in her head, she's thinking that she'll just die either way. If she doesn't save Ann, Ann gets possessed, and she'll die like in the original storyline. But if she goes to save Ann, she'll die in the process. Complex thoughts like this *should* be shown. It makes the MC feel more real. Honestly, cannot clearly say whether or not I like her.

Not to mention, we do not know who *she* really is. Sure, she is "Erica, " but who is she really? What is her real name? That's one of my main concerns in isekai/transmigration novels is that the background of the MC, not the character they get turned into, is not fully explored. Her past can help to explain some of her actions. The author might as well made the otome game world a real, fantasy world that this novel is based out of. The significance of the world being based out of an otome game is that the MC has the advantage of knowing her death flags, but this novel could still work without the reincarnation aspect. For example, "Erica" could have foresight or even a fragmented version or something like that to allow her to vaguely see what will happen in the future. Because the way that the novel is now, I actually do not care much about the otome game characters because I subconsciously separate the MC from the rest of the cast as real and fake people.


Another thing that I want to mention is that with all the world building done around the actual game, there is not much explanation in regards to the foundations. I am left with some questions, which may or may not have been addressed in the novel later on. For example, what role does the character, "Erica, " play in the game? Cannon fodder? It seems that she serves mainly as a plot device to move the story along. She is the reason that the story is all "bloody" by leading some of the nobles to insanity (from possessions and the like). This leaves the protagonist of the game to capture... them... in that state? If so, why do the developers of this game characterize Erica so much? From what I have read, the in-game Erica is extremely knowledgeable with wands and golems due to her mother's teachings yet acts arrogant despite not having any magical ability? It was noted that the MC does not even know why Erica acts that way. How does she have so many death flags? How does she have so many lives in the game? It seems that her existence is contradicting with that of the protagonist, Chloe, because she herself has her own route. In the first arc, a mere mention of the necklace led to Ann attempting to find the star piece (or whatever it's called) and getting possessed, which led to Erica getting turned into gold, from what I recall. What's the significance of letting "Erica" live? How does she continue the story for the protagonist, Chloe? I feel like the author spent too much time developing the times that the MC is Erica, and not how "Erica" is important to the game. Maybe I am misunderstanding the story. Then that would be my fault, but things are not entirely clear.

In terms of translation quality, pretty good. I kind of wish that sentences were grouped into paragraphs because having sentences act as lone paragraphs breaks the flow of the reading. Most likely, this was how the author wrote it, but having indentations everywhere makes the chapters seem unnecessarily long. I do love the illustrations though. It would actually be nice to have one for the world map.

In conclusion, I might continue reading this. I don't know yet. If I read further, I might grow to like it more, but at the same time, I am wondering if the novel is really worth my time. For new readers, I would suggest reading it to see what it is like. Many seem to be enjoying it. I'm just on the fence about it. <<less

Like most reincarnated in an otome novels, the MC gets caught up in a mystery that's bigger than what the original game lets on. Where this novel stands out is in its lore and pacing. Not only do we have a world that's rich in plot-relevant mythology and history, the unraveling of the mystery isn't bogged down by the usual romantic subplots and fanservice common in the genre (and shojo in general).

This is one of those rare female MC novels with a lot of plot, little romance (including baiting), and... more>> definitely no romance with the controlling creeps found in many Chinese novels. Oh, and she's NOT the loner type that some authors use as cover for writing what would typically be a male character. <<less
