The Bad Ending of an Otome


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

I was reincarnated into the otome game I had played in my previous life.

Ophelia, a beautiful female protagonist like a goddess, is loved by numerous nobles while Emilia, the character I reincarnated as, has a supporting role of a villain and she follows around the male leads after Ophelia’s death, only to be destroyed by them.

A few years after Ophelia dies due to an incurable disease, the player (default name Elodi) who resembles Ophelia appears.

The male love targets, who were heartbroken from the loss of Ophelia, becomes obsessed with Elodi.

I, who reincarnated into the story and became Emilia, decided to abandon that kind of plot. So, I decided to quietly leave the place I had lived at for 10 years on the day of Ophelia’s funeral.

Nobody expected her to leave, and they were shocked. They kept looking for her, who had disappeared without a single word, but couldn’t find her.

Two years later, an accidental encounter leads them to find her.

I read this a while ago because I stumbled across of the pic from Pinterest. It immediately caught my interest as it was drawn by the same artist who drew "Death is the only ending for the Villainess". It further caught my interest when I learned it's title.

The storyline is interesting. I was confused a first, but then caught on.

There was this girl named Ophelia which a lot of people had loved, but she had real temperamental problems and liked nobody except for MC whom Ophelia treasured dearly. Ophelia was sickly and was destined to die at a young age. Nobody liked MC for various reasons, but the main reason is that she was a low-born person and people thought she was only close with Ophelia in hopes that her father could adopt her as a daughter, since MC lived with Ophelia because she was the only one who could calm her. The second reason was because they were jealous of the MC of her being close to Ophelia.

MC reincarnated and left the house because in the OG game, she was the villainess who "followed the male leads around" not sure what that means. The OG FL named Elodie looked like Ophelia so they all went yandere? But MC went bye and all of them were like ??? And wanted to find her because they literally expected the opposite.


Anyways I'm hoping for more translations, but since the last one was in January, I don't have that much hopes.

[Edit] A new chapter came out and I feel as if I've been liberated <<less

I have many mixed feelings on this novel but I can assuredly say that I love the MC and ophelia. I absolutely loathe all the men besides the ML because they treated emilia like total garbage & ophelia like an object when she was alive. The guy emilia ends up with is ok but I honestly feel sad that she loved ophelia so much yet didn't get to be with her instead but I guess that's the point of tragic romance stories.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, so I hope you guys don’t go all rage once you see the review. I’m not a fan of reverse harem, but I’m not trying to disparage people from reading this novel, so people who actually digs this stuff just ignore the stuff I’m going to talk about.

Alright first of all I tried to give this a try as a male reader in order to broaden my perspective after constant pestering by my friend. Yea basically I was scammed to read this. Now... more>> I might get quite preachy about this so called “REVERSE HAREM” genre. Personally I would have liked if there is a fixed pairing with a stronger connection from the get go instead of MC being put in a reverse harem situation.

Plot wise I would say the beginning felt quite cliche-esque, also the characters were a bit stale, but at the end of the day I dropped this around chapter 20, so definitely this review won’t be helpful. I would suggest you try a few chapters and see for yourself, whether you want to continue or not. As for those who are not fan of the genre, I highly recommend you guys to stay away from this. <<less

Dude I hate how the author did Ophelia.. Like ... more>>

We're told that she's loved and everyone doted on her and loved her when in reality it wasn't love.. They only idolized and pitied her. Why do you think they moved on so fast and to Ellodi? They didn't care about Ophelia's feelings and personality, they only cared about her looks. They didn't see her as a person, but as a beautiful, pitiful object. It sucks as hell that we find out that the only person that truly loved Ophelia was Emilia. Not her parents, not any of the MLs, no. Only Emilia. And then how dare they f*cking let Ellodi go into her room and touch her stuff but not Emilia's? God, I feel so bad for Ophelia. Not only was she sick, but she also died, was replaced, and wasn't truly loved. I just wanna give her a hug..


I love Ophelia's character sm. She's my fav character in the whole thing and I love the novel, I just wish Ophelia wasn't more so unfortunate than she already was.. <<less

Cliche but not that cliche I guess, you know the typical I won't treat the heroine bad kind of troop but the former main heroine dies at the beginning, but everything after 4 volume turns dumb
