The Queen Villainess Eavesdrops on My Heart and Won’t Let Me Slack Off

Description

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

The first time Roger woke up, he transmigrated into an RPG Eastern Fantasy masterpiece called “Eternal Night”. He became the brother of the right minister under the ultimate villain “Eternal Night Queen”.

He arrived with an Acedia system, which gave him countless rewards as long as he loafed around and lived as a waste.

Unexpectedly, the Queen of Eternal Night didn’t live up to his expectations. Relying on her superb talent to eavesdrop on his heart:

“The Green Vines Empire has been around for thousands of generations, and Her Majesty the Empress is naturally the eternal master of the continent!”

[Quit dreaming, you’re scorned by the gods that joined forces to target you! In ten years, your people will be gone!]

“I’m nothing but an amateur! I completely have no idea how to make those chaotic people of the seventeen countries return to the empire!”

[Your literacy rate is too low! Don’t you know the words “Let the two wheels of all carriages be equally spaced, use the same words when writing letters or articles, teach by law, and set up officials in charge of education in all localities?”]

“The left minister, Lord Margaret, is a world leader. I dare not impose any assumptions..”

[She’s an undercover agent who wishes for you all to die sooner]

Three days later, the left minister Margaret was fired and the Queen of Eternal Night issued an edict:

“For his credit in protecting the country, Roger will be promoted to be the left minister.”

“Thank you, Your Majesty…”

[Don’t mess with me, I just want to loaf around!] Looking at Roger, full of reluctance but forced to agree, the Queen of Eternal Night revealed a smile of satisfaction.

Tsundere… is the most interesting!

I haven't even properly read the novel and I'd like to review the translation site instead.

To be completely to the point, the site is tr*sh.

XianXiaEngine is taking a new approach to MTL and I will admit, asking the readers to proofread their work sounds like a smart business move. They basically "soft-lock" chapters behind a capatcha, where in readers are asked to correct a sentence to make it more readable. You can choose "Not Interested" to not get the prompt and continue to be able to read... But that's not... more>> the problem here.

Too many cooks spoil the broth and the road to hell is paved with good intentions. It'd only take one person with a funky understanding of the English language to start trying to make corrections, only to ruin everyone else's experience because they're not as hot as they think they are.

Not to mention this method doesn't exactly sound moral. Its like the idea of online ad design competitions. Instead of hiring a person normally, a company could open up a competition. Suddenly, the company is spoiled for thousands ad design ideas FOR FREE instead of paying people for them. Doesn't really sound ethical, does it?

Here's an example of one of their "in need of polishing" sentences:

"Damn heretics, this is what happens when you don't believe in goddesses!"

See, I'm not sure if "believe in the goddesses" is the correct... Er- correction. There is a small but potentially significant distinction here. The goddesses refers to a set number of people. On the other hand, excluding the "the" means there's no upper limit.

It's the difference between "We're going to kidnap the Asians." and "We're going to kidnap Asians."

The first sentence implies a specific group that everyone in the conversation knows about. The latter implies they're going to be grabbing Asians off the street. There's a huge difference in a single word! And not giving us context to the entire thing makes the translation questionable at best!

Not to mention how lazy some of the sentences is.

"Joestar ran to the door with his short legs, stretched his hand to grab Paul's shoulder, and tore off his arm."

This is the first "capatcha" I was given. It isn't exact but gives the gist of it. If it looks fine to you, then you've never looked up how to properly write a novel.

"Joestar ran to the door with his short legs, grabbed Paul by the arm and tore the limb off."

Adding "stretched his hand to grab" when "grabbed" alone perfectly suffices shows the need for an editor that's at least familiar with Western novels and the English language.

Not to mention I wouldn't be sure who the third "His" in the initial sentence is referring to. For all I know, Paul could be some monstrously strong man who could tear someone's arm off simply for grabbing his shoulder. You and I don't know! We don't have context!

AND I HAVEN'T EVEN GONE ON HOW IMPORTANT THE PLACEMENT OF THE SECOND COMMA (,) IS!!!

Through the great art of ctrl+C, ctrl+v and deepL I have read over a 150 chapters of this novel so neadless to say I liked it a lot.

The relation between the Queen and the MC is really innocent and adorable and at the same time one in which neither can invest enough time despite thier fervent desires towards eachother.

But I won't spoil it and will just say that it's enjoyable.

At the end of the day I have not read enough to give a "good" review but this is quite a... more>> good novel imo. <<less

Okay, just, this novel sucks d*ck bro.

To start it I will go through some reviews and talk about them real quick, I will list their names and quote sections that I am addressing. If you don't want to read that I will try and leave an Identifying point where you can skip to.

josh1002 - "To be completely to the point, the site is tr*sh"

... more>> The translation quality is ok at first but at around the chapter 50 mark it drops way downhill.

josh1002 -"They basically "soft-lock" chapters behind a capatcha, where in readers are asked to correct a sentence to make it more readable"

No, they don't, or maybe I just don't see it because adblock is on. I have read +100 chapters on Xianxia Engine and never been forced to do that before

Sth - "The relation between the Queen and the MC is really innocent and adorable and at the same time one in which neither can invest enough time despite thier fervent desires towards eachother."

This might be because I am not at the 150 chapter mark but I find the relationships between the MC and the Queen to not be like that, in fact it should be pretty bad, or simply ok. I will go into that in a bit, maybe the next line or so.

Oh boy, this is going to be a long one

Triarkdown - I am going to put the quote in a spoiler so it doesn't clutter up this review too much, as I am going to be talking about all of it.

Spoiler

"Edit: Oh man you dont know how hard I have been disappointed. 5* to 1*..... this is just tragic the re*arded Author out of nowhere decides to add "Reverse NTR" plot after chp63-64. Such happy innocent romance written for 60 chapters.... then the most despair inducing acid dagger stabbed in your heart.
There always was harem possibility but no harem here the MC secretply behind back of Queen starts doing things with random girl he known for 2 days. Ah that was disgusting while the Queen tries to help MC, author decided for no reason at all show MC secretly doing dirty things with a military girl. The queen almost catches them like in any reverse NTR or NTR doesnt get to know what was secretely happening.
If something changes in future then maybe I will change review but YUCK.
Does woman secretly doing dirty things almost getting caught by man shes been around with then deceiving the man nothing suspicious was going on sound familiar ?
Except the one doing dirty things secretly behind back here is a man.
Dont waste time reading this novel"

[collapse]

So first thing I want to address, the MC and the Queen are nowhere near to being in a relationship with each other. Next, a "happy innocent romance", no, just no. Also, dumbass, there is a HAREM TAG, why don't you read it next? I absolutely hate that the female lead is the Queen, the military girl is so much better than her and she has appeared in about 3 chapters so far, maybe 4. The only reason the Queen even seems like a viable option as a romantic interest is the fact that you can hear her inner monologues and decisions, instead, if you take the MC's point of view, all that she does to him is annoy and pester him when he simply wants to be left alone, and even actively threaten him, there's probably a lot more bad things as well. My favorite thing she did was this, picture it, you've just been traumatized, you have just watched dozens of people you were hanging out with and made friends with be turned into meat paste by some god, and a sweet girl (best girl) just risked her life to save you and is currently dying. Later the Queen shows up, and after she sees that you are troubled and traumatized from those events, reveals that she knows your secret identity, have been lying to her this whole time about your identity, and then decides to f*ck with you and manipulate you emotions. Why? Because you saved the girl who saved your life with the artifact she gave you and is jealous. She then decides to make this about her and tells you her life story and says some sh*t like "Are you willing to help me make sure this Empire of 40 million won't be destroyed?"

Like what the f*ck? Really author? You are really going to do all that and expect me to like this character? Bro, I think Reverend Insanity is my favorite novel and this bit*h is more likeable than some guy who killed his entire extended family and personally burned two children alive, amongst many other awful things. Triarkdown says the "NTR" thing was like "the most despair inducing acid dagger stabbed in your heart", but when I remembered that happened I was jumping for joy, I personally read ahead just for the romance with the military girl. However, sadly, it wasn't much. Do you know what this "despair inducing acid dagger stabbed in your heart" was? A chaste kiss. Like what bro? I expected s*x or something, but a kiss? For shame, and there's no gender bias here, she's just a b*tch, and people like that deserve to get NTR'd, at least in novels, novel characters are usually very 2-dimensional and also not real, so it makes it much easier for me to stomach awful things happening to them, even is they aren't that bad of human beings. Just annoying and the fact I het her.

Smallblackcat - "This is a good novel not gonna lie I like the mc's laziness, and the like but the queen I'm kinda irritated by her personality she's so narcissistic to a fault, she even interrupt the MC on every occasion that he's with another girl when they don't have anything to care about each other and she always think that she's in titled to everything the MC knows, its just kinda annoying her being a third wheel on every occasion"

Yes


There we go, I am done with the review reviews. I will try and avoid what I have already said. If you skipped it, just know that I hate the Queen. And if you came here for a lazy MC, just leave now, just about no story will have an actually lazy MC because it needs the plot to actually move forward and for things to happen, which is difficult when the MC doesn't do anything.

The novel's kind of boring, that's the problem when there is a lazy system or protagonist. Plots need something to happen so the MC is usually forced to do something that either doesn't make them stronger, which isn't cool and epic, and kind of boring, or makes the MC do something he strictly doesn't want to do, which is annoying. There are also a bunch of plot holes and very contrived plot points and simply ideas that don't make sense.

Here's a completely arbitrary thing. Nirvanas blessing, a powerup activated by dying, can only be activated by old age or by an accidental death, aka, a death done by someone who isn't trying to kill you for the sole purpose of making you more powerful. Which is weird right? Why does that matter? How does this supernatural ability, which, I believe, is simply an ability and not and actual blessing, have the ability to know why someone kills you, or who killed you, considering you also can't kill yourself.

Something that doesn't make sense, why is the MC so knowledgeable about war tactics, he was an otaku game developer. He shouldn't be able to outsmart gods, and actual war ministers, as well as the Queen about war and civilization tactics.

The storytelling is totally out of whack, it has absolutely no idea where it wants to go. Be the average fight/help the original worlds protagonist? Become a romance between the MC and the Queen? Thank god it wasn't that. Maybe, try something new? Well no, it seems they decided to just wing it and throw in random elements whenever they feel like it. A big part is the sort of kingdom building, it might have even be a Release That Witch-esque story. However they don't commit enough to that idea so it completely falls through. They also don't focus enough on things like taking advantage of the MC's knowledge (but I suppose it's a lazy MC so I can let it slide) or using the original protagonist to force some conflict for the MC, maybe they do that later on but I can't read another chapter of this garbage novel.

One last thing, I think so at least. The MC just gets put down all the time. Want to relax? No, I will take advantage of you and make you work to help me, and while he does get rewarded, it's like getting Dark Souls 1 when you wanted Bloodborne, Sekiro, or Elden Ring. Like, it's good, but it's really not what I wanted. He also got continuously c*ckblocked for his Nirvana's Blessing powerup. The first time he is watching as a god destroys a large part of the city and he is facing the incoming blast, about to be reborn in a pheonix's nirvana, just to get c*ckblocked, then an attack by cannon fodder, not that cool but at this point I am fine with anyting, c*ckblocked, c*ckblocked again in the same encounter, then finally he suicide bombs
Spoiler

the guy who killed a child, caused the bombing (that was the one the military girl was in), and caused his sister to kill the original MC in the future (the guy before the current MC took over his body)

This book is similar to The Villain’s Diary – The Heroine’s Character Crumbles, except that one is much better and actually enjoyable. I hope I don't have to add more to this review later on. <<less

This review isn't about the novel in general but is meant to address one point, another review pointed to there being reverse NTR in this novel which made me hesitate to pick it up but now I am just really confused about why they said that at all.

for NTR to happen two characters must already be in a relationship, if you are angry that the author is introducing new ships in the story that is fine but don't call it NTR when the two main characters haven't even started... more>> considering a relationship in the first place. <<less

First of all, the google translate is kinda awful, so if possible you should wait for the translations.

The interactions are fairly funny, the Story is basically this:

The feMC, almighty empress of the empire, highest tier human being in her world, wants to fight against the gods because the gods decided to make her world a farming ground for them to get energy (faith)

... more>> She is destined to be doomed, but then she met roger.

Roger, the transmigrator is a common person, althought intelligent, he's the type of person who trembles at murder and and is afraid of death.

Sounds a bit simple right?There is however, a thing that makes this novel a bit different than the others cn novels.

The characters actually evolve, we will see how roger gradually changes from wanting to be a lazy person and work with the gods, to actually be willing to side with them as long as the empire falls, and then he get's to even risk his life for the common people of the empire.

The empress. Althought arrogant, a bit narcissist, and lacks brain in the logistics department, is still but a girl, a immensely powerful one, but still a girl of the royalty who is still discovering her own feelings.

The relationship progress about these 2 is very good to read.

Althought my description has been dry, since I can't write reviews well, it was quite a well grounded experience seeing these changes, and I like it a lot. <<less

There is no doubt that this is a very interesting novel, the relationship between the MC and the queen makes me laugh, and most importantly, you can also see a lot of interesting relationships, because these people have misunderstandings because of their identities.
Overall, this is indeed a novel worth reading

The story is too hilarious. 😂🤣 The MC is misunderstood as a tsundere by the Empress.

The empress is turning into yandere whenever a girl approaches the MC.

Truly a satisfying romcom. 😂🤣
