The Baby Raising A Devil


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Three regressions, 4th life.

Although she was prophesied and raised as the child of fate, she was sacrificed when the real child of fate appears.

‘This country is no good, let’s defect!’

Leblaine chooses to be adopted to earn money until defecting. There was nothing wrong this far, but the place she chose was a family full of villains. She tried to trick those bad guys in order to live comfortably before defecting…

“My daughter is the cutest in the world.”

“Give her the building. She can use it as her bathroom.”

“It’s okay, Leblaine told me not hit you, but she didn’t say not to kill you?”

“Who made my sister cry!”

‘…they’re spiralling out of control, what should I do?’


“You can’t hit or kill people just because you don’t like them.”

My family was quiet even though I purposely looked sad.

‘Then there’s nothing I can do!’

I looked back at my family with a sharp gaze and said solemnly.

“I’m going to sleep without a blanket.”

“I’m wrong, kid!”

“I’m sorry!”

“I won’t kill anyone!”

(As of chapter 1) To be completely honest the quality of the translation isn't great. It seems to have been mtl'd without much editing and it's quite hard to understand at times. However I've been waiting for this for a while since I loved the promotional manhwa so I'm grateful that someone is getting us access to the novel.

I can't really say much about the story so I'll add an edit one day when the story has progressed.


The new translator is doing a great job. The villainous... more>> duke is still being a bit of a tsun right now but the story is super cute. LeBlaine is trying her best to survive so I feel a bit guilty to say this but she's SO cute! I can't wait to see the dad become a daughter idiot and I can't wait to see the three brothers. <<less

This story is heartwarming and cute. I like how Blaine ended up in a loving family on her 3rd reincarnation. I will rate this 5 star because:

  1. Story is good. Despite it being a cute, heartwarming story, the chapters clearly shows hints that there is an actual story plot. From what it looks like, the story climax will not happen so fast but we can definitely anticipate for good story.
  2. Character Development.
    1. Spoiler

      The duke seems cold on the outside but is actually very caring. I think he simply find it awkward to show his emotion. He is definitely ruthless as an enemy but I can see that he cares for his son and daughter clearly. Next is Henry, he is a genius who is suffering from trauma but it looks like Blaine's care for him caused him to slowly get over it (based on chapter 22). I think we can expect good character development in this story.

  3. Good Translation. I think the translator did his best translating it while maintaining what the author is trying to convey to the readers.
  4. Delivery Speed. Chapters are being rolled out every 1-3 days which is great. I do wish it can be a constant 1 chapter per day though.
Overall, thank you Translator-nim for picking this up!

This is one of my favorite novels on this site, mainly because the protagonist is so great. So our girl has lived 3x and is currently on her 4th life. As is pretty typical for novels like these, she is super high-powered and has a great, overpowered family who love her to death. So sounds pretty typical. BUT our protagonist, Blaine, makes up for all of the cliches by being completely awesome and utterly unique personality when it comes to this type of story.

For one thing, our girl will do... more>> villainous things - and I mean actual, villainous things, like mu*der - herself and without hesitation, usually out of revenge. She is super protective of her family and she will legit take someone out of the equation if they make a move against them. She honestly can come across as more of a proper villainess than a lot of stories with "villainess" characters, but who never seem to do anything even the least bit sketchy. She's the type to be pretty calculating and cold, but in a way that ends up valuing herself lower than others, which is oddly heartbreaking. For example (mild spoiler)

she drafts her team of supporters from people who each have their own goal, specifically so that they can abandon her at any time.

Which is both genius and terribly sad right?

But at the same time that she's this super cold person who can take advantage of people and even kill, she's also a complete marshmallow when it comes to her family and silly things like food. She is both a kid and a really experienced soul with a lot of knowledge and pain, so you get this really funny and adorable mix. I totally get how her family is so protective.

The world itself also makes sense, and there is an actual cost for using magical powers. So even though our girl is super strong her power isn't unlimited and that actually effects the flow of the story. Her family is also strong, but not perfect, and the author does a good job of making her characters "human." At times the translation can be a little tricky, but they still do an excellent job and people experienced reading light novels probably won't have any trouble understanding what's happening. Absolutely excellent story all-round and I really hope the translators finish it out for us. Highly recommended. <<less

Oh my. Some people don't know what trauma is. Poor people. They should experience how to be neglected and abused first before commenting that our great Leblaine is s*upid even though she isn't.


I'll make this short.

... more>> If you love and simp for Cale from TCF (tr*sh of the Count's Family) and love the story.

I highly recommend this. Leblaine (our cute female MC) is of the same race as Cale.

Loves Money. Mischievous and cunning. Cares for her comrades. You just can't not love her when she does evil things.

Extra info:

Leblaine is not from another world but after living for 3 whole dispicable and lonely lives. In her fourth life, she already has the knowledge to shake the whole continent.


Theres also this girl named Mina from her first life that made her life miserable. She's from Korea and I think.. For her.. She reincarnated on a novel. She has too much knowledge of this world for a person who came from another.

I saw a comment or two about the translation being good. I'm highly confused. The translation is pretty bad. It's about as bad as a translation can be while still being marginally useful. If it was much worse, you'd get about as much out of it as you would staring the raws without being able to read Korean.

On top of that, the writing itself is just not very good. Any kind of action sequence is just a blur of random unconnected things that will mostly confuse the crap out of... more>> you if you try to figure out what happened. Just keep reading and eventually the context will let you figure out the end result. That's about the most you're ever going to get. The more plot-related stuff has the same sort of problem. It's just words shoved at you that you've got to try to make some sense of. It's miserable.

The only reason to read this is the interactions of the MC and her family. That's it. You still won't even understand all of that between the poor translation and the equally poor writing. But the overall feeling will usually come through. It's a fairly unique or at least rare sort of feeling, so if you're interested, you'll just have to bear with everything else.

And it's worth noting that those moments seem to be getting rarer, as the story starts to focus more on the plot. I'm still reading it for now, but... eh. Pushing through several chapters of "what? huh? wtf? whatever" for a paragraph or even just a few sentences of MC interaction with her family or one or two others is not worth it. Those chapters are becoming more common, unfortunately. <<less

Absolutely adorable. The translator is doing a good job at translating this. This is one of those fluffy reads of a stone-cold seemig father and a cute lovable daughter, that could simply make you jealous of their adorable interactions.

The time she stole bread was hilarously cute. The duke baraged her with suspicions that was so far fetched from the truth. The duke was slapped with the truth that the only thing she stole was bread and not military secrets.

Any whooo, this is def a great read. Cute and entertaining, I can't wait for her meeting with her former fathers and her meeting with her 3 "cold and talented" brothers. This is a father and brother doting feast~☆

Writing this review after deciding to drop this. It’s been over 100 chapters and it feels like very little has happened plot-wise. She now has the full support of her family - none of whom we know loads about as whenever they appear they turn into fanboys that just squabble. Once or twice is fine but you know I’d actually like to see them acting competent and not just idiotic. She’s also met 2 important people who have both appeared once since then and I’m not sure why one of... more>> them is important except he’s an enemy of her brother 🤷🏻‍♀️ She’s also made lots of money. I don’t remember how. Lots of the plot isn’t fully explained and any conflict she wins so easily that there’s absolutely no tension or drive to the story. Her goal seems to basically be to get money and survive - a dull goal with a dull plot. Where’s the other girl that pushed her out? Oh it’s been 100 chapters and she hasn’t appeared yet. <<less

I didn't like this as much as I was hoping I would. I also didn't get that far, so it's possible it improves.

I found the main character's baby talk annoying, and she's a bit on the dumb side for someone on her fourth life (like, after dying three times how do you not seem to have any sort of plan!? This is probably why you died three times, isn't it).

Also, I'm not really loving the Duke or his sons (her adoptive family for this life)

... more>>

The fighting over the heroine's attention is a bit tiresome. Definitely not a healthy family dynamic.

Also, they are a bit too villainous. Like, one second they are showering her with desserts, the next second they have gone to a s*ave auction house to buy her a s*ave. Yeah, not a fan of that. Her only reaction is, "Oh yeah, I forgot they were villainous." I really hate casual acceptance of s*avery.

This novel is so great! The MC is super cute, a little cute sly kitten! She protects her family, at first because of personal interest and pity, then now I'm waiting for the time when she'll be so accustomed to aegyo that now she'll involuntary do it even without noticing it. Her past lifetimes were literal shit. Hypocritical parents at first, abusive the second, then starved on the streets. The fourth run will be the lucky one! Fighting gurl!

P. S. One of my favourite scenes

... more>>

Isaac frowned at Henry.

"Why is your treatment towards her and me so different?"

"Because I only care about my people. "

"Since when did the kid become your people? She's my little sister!"

"My little sister."

"No. Mine!"

The brothers glared at each other throughout the heated debate. I, a bystander, was shocked to see such an unusual interaction between them.

'What's wrong with both of them!'

In the middle of their dispute, an incoming footstep could be heard from outside the door. It was the duke.

He was stunned when he saw both of his sons were having a dispute.

'Duke, your sons are doing strange things.'

'Take them away, please.'

I tried to convey the request with my eyes, but instead of dragging his sons away, the duke suddenly hugged me.

"My daughter."



I'm updating after 3 years because I decided to pick up this novel again... and oh boy it was a roller coaster ride.

The plot twist are crazy. I love when the story is able to intertwine itself into a full circle in the end.

Some parts are kinda confusing and sometimes I feel like the memory of her past lives are kinda deus ex machina.

Not all the time tho.

Because what this story was good at since the beginning was the butterfly effect.

Her enemies are no joke, her schemes just get more brilliant and her love life is heart wrenching, angst, but goddamn we will have our happy ending!

But I do feel sorry for a lot of people, one in particular. But it's still ongoing so maybe later in the story we will have an epilogue for a place where even a god can be happy.


He was a good brother.

But not a good God.

Still, one day even the lost sheepherder Neliard (Mina's God) shall find happiness with his sister.

All he fought was for a better world for his sister, but he was wrong since the first step he took.

I don't condone the fact that his ideology went against the Creator (Lablaine's God), but I feel sad that he got stuck with them without accepting any compromise.

He didn't give a chance to others.

He didn't give a chance to himself.

He didn't give a chance to his sister.

The story is really promising eventhough it's only 1-2 chapter. Perhaps someone who review before gave a low rate just because the translation is really bad. But there another translation who took this project and the translation is quite good.

Just give it a try. P.S if you have read this please give rating to this novel and leave lots of coments in their original website to support them mentally, thank you.

One of the best novel I have read.

There are lots of twists on LeBlaine life, especially her past identity (aside fr dubblede daughter).

I'm already in book 3 (LeBlaine, 17y/o). Will wait for the available of Jap or Eng translation of this last part. I wish kakao has the text version instead of image so it can be translatable

For ML,.. I want it to be her eldest brother instead

The story is quite good. It's pretty heart warming and I love how the MC is spunky. She definitely isn't a passive protag, she likes taking things into her own hands even if she's not OP.

The only reason this isn't a 5 star, is because of the translation is a bit rough to read. The touches with the child-like talk for the MC is great, but for other parts it's a bit lacking. I often find myself rereading a line to make sure that I was reading it correctly. It's... more>> only a minor issue, so feel free to pick this story up! <<less

It's a very cute and entertaining read. I kind of feel bad for the Duke's sons though, imagine having a deadbeat dad who seemingly didn't care about you all your formative years but is now outwardly showing love and affection to this new girl (they don't feel anything this is just me not liking how the sons didn't have any emotional turmoil that added depth to their character)

Ugh one trope I hate is the family fighting for affection. The MLs fighting with their children for their partners attention, and... more>> in this case the Duke and his sons fighting for blaine... It's not cute to me at all *barf* <<less

this is such a cute and loving story. Although the background of the MC is very tragic and sad. I really hope she will find her happiness in her fourth life. Also those who hurt her shall be punished severely.

Alrighty, sooooo, this is my review based on what I've recently read.

Leblaine's life has been pretty entertaining and while people say she's dumb, well.... I wouldn't ever agree. She's smart, cunning, and CUTE! She has lead multiple lives full of hardships, mind you. She can't place her trust on people that much. When you see someone you thought was a good person who's gentle and caring suddenly turn violent and cruel, what would you feel? Leblaine has gone through a lot and whilst on her journey, she has gathered her... more>> own people. She now has goals in mind. She's no longer just trying to survive, she has something she wants to achieve, to protect, and to live by. Her life is entertaining and mood lifting. In conclusion, she's amazing.

About the story, the other characters and the premise, it's all good and dandy. I enjoyed it a lot. I hope that whoever is reading this, gives it a try and join Leblaine's journey. <<less

MC is the most scaring character of all novels that I read


she acts cute and adorable, but is the most scheming who knows how to choose allies and screw up the enemies without getting caught, I must say she is really smart, three lives is too little to be so powerful

This novel did a really great job in making the story cute, heartwarming and funny with some serious undertones.

I think the phasing is good. Despite the MC still being in her child body, there are already many happenings that so entertaining, I can't help but get hooked but the same time, I'm not frustrated enough to look for spoilers which is very unusual of me. Maybe it's how the author wrote this novel, but each chapter is just so satisfying to read!

I'm don't even care about the romance anymore, I... more>> just wanna read our Leblaine's adventures. Oh god she's so adorable and witty.

Plus, kudos for the high quality translation! The scenes flows naturally on my mind. It didn't gave me headaches at all hahaha. 1000/10. Thank you translator-nim!

I really really love this novel. It's cute, funny and mostly well-written.

I loove how the MC is always one step ahead of everyone and how badass she is in handling her enemies.

and, I like how her family loved her so much and would go out of their way to protect her. But, I'll admit, their overprotectiveness and overreaction to whatever MC was doing could be a bit annoying to me but other than that, this novel is amazing.
