The Tyrant’s Guardian is an Evil Witch


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

I seem to have reincarnated in the world of an r-rated romance fantasy novel. And not just as an ordinary character, but as the witch who loses her life to the crazy male lead!

Luckily there is a long 200 years until the main characters are born and grow into their roles.

Now that my life is not in imminent danger, shall we leisurely think of ways to avoid death?

However, I had not taken notice of a very important detail about the time I’d be spending ‘safe from imminent danger’. 200 years was by no means a short waiting period and by the time the younger version of the male lead appeared in front of me, I had completely forgotten the original novel’s plot!

Oh, whatever, now that it’s come to this, the only way to survive is to raise the male lead into a sane and stable adult! The first step to avoiding death at the hands of the tyrant male lead is changing this extremely frightened child’s life.

“It must be very inconvenient for you to have me suddenly show up on your doorstep, I’m sorry. You can tell me to go away, I’ll be fine.”

“Nonsense. Do I look like someone who could be inconvenienced by a little boy like you? Also, what do you mean by you’ll be fine even if told to go away? It’s not like you have anywhere to go back to, kid.”

The little boy burst into tears.

‘Oh, this is so not it.’ That was what the witch thought to herself as the little boy sobbed.

lmfao that child grooming comment. Really cracks the hell out of me. 😂😂😂 Well, the story is a fantasy setting in which the female lead is a witch and on top of that, she's the number one beauty ever. Idk how it became a child grooming to some but the reason she adopted the child is because she wanted to change his character role from psycho to docile princely type. If you would use your head and read the further chapters they will fall in love when male lead is... more>> a full grown adult. There's literally little to none romatic plot until the coming of age of Tita and story focus on their daily life and magic. The rest are just subtle presentation of unrequited love of the male lead in which the witch is always oblivious of it to the point of annoying (bc she doesn't see Tita as romantic interest.) grrrr..

so it is basically, "I love you so I will make you love me back." setting for ML pov. <<less

The awkward protagonist cares for the little prince. Somehow, it makes me think of those father + adopted daughter plots where the daughter used to be an abuse victim. Only this time it's gender-swapped and the "father" is the protagonist.

I'm writing this review to inform you the chapter links won't always work. To me, only the link to the latest chapter worked despite the address field being correct. If you're having trouble, I guess you could try to click yourself to the chapters from Sleepy Translations' main site (https://sleepytranslations. Com/).... more>> The latest chapter might appear on Sleepy Translations before it is on Novel Updates. <<less

Very cute.

I'm really appreciate that this novel got picked up by Sleepy Translations, I can't understand Korean so I can't provide any spoilers... But I'm looking forward to more chapters!

As always, thank you translator-nims! You're the best! 😍

So far, I love the story. It is quite cute.

Our MC and ML don't know how to express their emotions yet. Their interactions are a little weird but cute and funny.

I'm looking forward to read what is going to happen next.

From the beginning, even after reading the synopsis (which has no hints of romance between the female MC and male mc), I've been worried that this would be another guardian-turned-lover type of story. I really wished it wouldn't be, but seeing the developments of Tita (Alpen), his behavior towards Clete, and the reviews of some people on here as well, alas, it is that type of story.

**I will say though that their family dynamic (Edmund, Clete, and Yita) is very cute and I would've liked to see more. Tita grew... more>> up so fast 🥹

Thank you to the translators (novel and manhwa), but I will be dropping to preserve my memories of baby Tita with guardians Clete and Edmund.

** (I will elaborate further on this point.) I say this because I would've liked to see a simple, cute, family story. C&E takes care of Tita, he grows up, he becomes very attached to C&E (sees them as true guardian/parent figures), becomes cute and affectionate with them but tyrannical with others, meets his female pair, they fall for each other, he introduces her to C&E—C&E tries to test if said female is deserving of their Tita, etc. Clete could've stayed single; she could've wanted to be single forever and take care of T&E; or maybe she could've gotten with r*pelle—you know, anyone else but Tita, her baby. Just a true, cute, lovely family dynamic. <<less

Cute cute cute~~~

If we are lucky, this time we can see just a cute slow development love? I know it's korean so is to much to expect for.... But *fingers crossed*!

Until know is funny to see our MC trying to interact with the little bun but being hilarious unsuccessful HAHAHAHA

Thanks TL-sama for your hard work <3
