I have to say, this is an amazing novel. I wasn't sure at first, but the premise behind it got me a little curious. It had that dash of isekei involving reincarnation but with a strange twist that it was like groundhog day, but every 5 years. But what really hooked me was the main character, she's not a flat character at ALL. She is incredibly intelligent and you can follow right along with her logic, it absolutely does not seem like an "OP Skill" or out of place. It's... more>> just how she is, after living six full time professions for 5 years with a wealth of knowledge expanded by traveling the world and learning multiple languages. Her skill set is very aptly spelled out, and how she got to where she was and why. There is drama in this, but it's a twisting drama, you think one thing and then it twists a bit to something else then twists a bit to yet something else, but all the clues are already there. When everything starts coming together at the end of an arc you start realizing what the MC has already figured out and is now revealing to you. This is what I like about this novel, because it gives you the clues and some of the MC's conjectures but it doesn't give you the answer out right and when the MC figures it out she doesn't tell you the audience either. She just starts making plans, some of which you don't realize are plans till later, because now she's hiding her actions from even the audience.

For example, envelope shoved under her bedroom door in her villa. This is nothing at first and even I just thought this was a simple plot device to move the story along, no, this becomes a major hint. When it's revealed how she figured it out, it all came down to HOW the envelope got under the door. Her private villa's quarters can only be approached by 3 people, her fiance, her personal maid and her guard. All others wouldn't even get close. That kind of blew my mind, I wasn't looking for it, it actually tripped me up near the end of the arc when the puzzle pieces were being laid out. 5/5 for me, I will be continuing this with MTL on syo, even though the second arc isn't done yet. <<less

Duh, I tapped wrong, it should be 2 stars, but ok.

The premise seems good, it was good for the first 20 chapters, but you start to lose interest afterwards, you then begin to notice how Mary Sue the MC is, being a middle aged woman who has seen the world and acting like a innocent and pure girl in her teens.

It is cringe.

Good for people who like to read light and shallow novels.

Honestly I never write reviews cause most of them are fine but this novel just sucks. Frankly it’s just boring. There’s hardly any fluff and plots are dragged out. You can literally skip whole chapters and still get what’s going on. Yes they do kiss or whatever but like that’s one chapter out of like 40 and there’s absolutely no buildup or fluff that comes with it. Honestly just such a let down considering how interesting the first few chapters of the manga was.

It’s also boring how the FL seems... more>> to always save the day- inventing this, doing that, etc. So predictable. Don’t get me wrong, I usually love it when that happens but here it’s written in such a forced and s*upid way.
1/5, would give it less if I could. Idk how the translator manages to keep reading and updating this. Such a waste of time. Rather read anything else. Only went up to these chapters bc I was constantly hoping that it would get better. I suggest villainess that reverses the hourglass for something similar and so much better. Completed novel on box novel (it doesn’t say it on novel updates) <<less

The MC is quite a refreshing change from the usual always flustered and overly energetic heroines. So far she seems to have a "chill" and slight indifferent attitude to the absurd situations she's placed in (due to her living numerous lives). It's a nice personality to be paired up with the ML's (so far) more playfully dangerous personality as because of that we get to see moments where he's stupified by the MC's casual yet outlandish actions. Theres not that much to read yet but it has got me hooked... more>> so far, I can't wait to see how it progresses. <<less

So far very solid. Protagonist is skilled at a lot of things, though not unreasonably so, and has a rather calm 'yeah whatever man' personality. Totally unfazed by almost everything, but not in that insufferably smug way. The ML plays off that beautifully by being a match for her, being able to get under her skin and yet never making the protagonist look s*upid or weak.

Of course, this is only chapter 17 so it's anyone's guess as to whether the quality will stay consistent.

very bad.

MC is a Mary Sue.

ML is a template edgy op "perfect" ML.

... more>> Side characters exist just to show us how perfect MC is, or to progress the relationship between MC and ML.

I originally picked this up looking for a relaxing slice of life novel that I could just turn my brain off and enjoy, but this is too much lol. Every 1-2 chapters, we have ML being an edgelord or MC having some cringey interaction with a side character where the side character is like "omg she's so perfect."

There are so many annoying little bits of bad writing that I've gotten pulled out of my suspension of disbelief even while trying my best to just push through this mess. <<less

Imo, the premise of the story of a girl who experiences life in a loop is original. It’s like a combination of quick transmigration novel and regular reincarnation novel. I haven’t really read anything like it that sets up the world well and have interesting main character.

When the FL dies at 20 years old, she is transported back in time to the moment when her fiancé, the Crown Prince, nullifies their engagement. Over and over again. For 6 times. Instead of falling into despair about having to live the same... more>> moment over and over again, she picks herself up and lives her life by her own terms every time. Because of that, throughout her 6 lives, she has accumulated lots of experience and life skills. Our FL is by no mean weak at heart. She’s courageous, capable, and smart. I like her attitude.

I don’t mind her Mary-sue capabilities at all. In fact, that makes this novel easy to read.

74 chapters in, the romance is still at the beginning stage. I can already tell it’s going to be a slow romance kinda novel. That alone makes me not give it a full 5 stars just yet.

The plot isn’t quite flushed out yet and I cannot quite predict what’s going to happen next. I’d be keeping up with the updates for this one.

Recommended for people who don’t want a too complicated plot; good world-building; slow romance; likable, not ditzy, smart, resourceful FL who knows what she wants, goal-oriented and even fights well. Definitely not just a wallflower. <<less

The MC must have at least a few decades of experience if you combine every lifetime but you'd never know it from her behavour. She behaves just like every other clumsy, ditzy mary sue who stumbles through life without two brain cells to rub together. I can completely believe she'd continuously die over and over without learning a thing from the experience to prevent it happening again.

The only way I see her surviving this is if the sociopathic ML decides to prevent his new pet from dying of her own... more>> s*upidity. Then her mary sue halo makes him fall for this idiot and they live happily ever after. Somehow. <<less

When it comes to the relationship of the MC and ML, I like the pacing of this novel. It's kinda close to what happens in real life couples. Yeah sure, it has a lot of happenings as compared to normal couples but I like seeing how they develop their relationship. They're both weary of each other but still tries to believe in one another. I like how they maintain their individuality while saving the other person in need. For teenagers such as them, they both have the maturity to not... more>> be swept by feelings alone. But that's just me. The love aspect is very realistic for me.

As for the other stuff, it has enough intrigue to keep me interested and wait for more chapters. Also, I don't really encounter similar stories where the MC keeps on reincarnating back to a certain time. It's fresh for me so I think that's its main selling point, at least for myself.

Also, IMO, the MC had gone through all of those 6 lives to prepare her on being the perfect wife/partner for the crown prince of a ruthless empire. I love how she can use everything she has learned in her past lives to help the ML and "try" to prevent him from waging war in 5 years. I also have theories about the ML as to the why he would go to war, that's why I'm re-reading the previous chapters while waiting for updates. Will never get tired of this novel, no matter what other's opinions may be. <<less

I've gone back and forth on this novel and finally decided that it's not something I enjoy. The story is about average, which makes it a little better than many others like it in that regard but lacks in what those other novels have. Which is Fluff, either the literal or emotional. It reads more like a political intrigue than romance novel but it has no twist to keep it interesting and everything after she arrives in the castle is predictable. To summarize, while I wouldn't call it boring, I... more>> wouldn't call it exciting or interesting. <<less

She is so into living life to the fullest and being herself I love it. I don't mind traditional heroines but I love competent and independent ones best. Our heroine however exceeded the norm I feel. I am cheering her on to live her best life and the side characters are interesting too!

Awful novel, and an even worse translation. It's one of those Japanese light novels where the content is so light that there's next to no detail in it.

Also, the translation is terrible. Heck, they can't even decide whether to use " " or [ ] for dialogue. There are even a few sentence spoken like this.... " I just saw him walking down that path ].

Seriously? The person translating doesn't really seem to care about the quality of their work. 1 star all around.

I decided to read the novel coming across the manga, which I was totally invested in. The novel had a great start but it got worse as chapters went by and I was forcing myself to read the last 20 or so chapters in hopes it would get better. It didn't. I wouldn't say that it's horrible, but it doesn't keep your interest and I feel that the characters that had some importance besides the protagonist weren't really talked about.

... more>>

Rische (MC) is a Mary Sue which I usually don't mind but it seems all the servants praise her as an idol after barely knowing her for plot convenience. I'm confused as to why when she single-handedly cleans a whole goddamn estate, does the laundry etc everyone just accepts it without much resistance?? She's a crown princess for crying out loud and even if she is seen as a royal hostage and is looked down by others, did they forget she is from a dukedom in a foreign country? She's meant to be a royal hostage, if the king found out she was being put to work, wouldn't they be put in an uncomfortable situation, regardless whether she works voluntarily or not? Taking into account that the king that rules over where she was born seems somewhat of a coward, she is STILL a high-ranking noble who's the daughter of a duke and is engaged to the crown prince. It doesn't matter whether they like her, dislike her and if she wants to do laundry out of her own free will, she can't be treated carelessly and she cannot act carelessly either. The hierarchy system exists for a reason. If rumours of her doing 'servant activities' spread, wouldn't she be bringing shame upon the name of the crown prince and the royal family? She said she doesn't want to lift a finger and wants to loaf around yet her actions constantly contradict what she says.

I couldn't feel any chemistry between Rische and the ML, unfortunately. Also, their communication skills are so tr*sh it made me want to pull my hair out, it feels like their relationship has barely progressed. That was a huge let down for me, though others probably feel that they compliment each other well, I guess just not me.

EDIT: I forgot to add, if she were to bring shame upon the royal family, isn't that the same as a death flag? They have no real benefit keeping her, so why would they not kill her off if she was being a nuisance? The crown prince cannot protect her forever, he is not in the emperors favour and the emperors word IS law. Even if she died, her home country wouldn't try and seize an opportunity here. This is because 1: the king is an old, scared man who obviously shows fear to their kingdom. 2: The kingdom she comes from is already small and without much influence, complaining would only be a path straight to war. If they offered him small compensation with a half hearted excuse, I guarantee he would walk away happily and that would be the end of that. She has no real, strong allies to back her up. It was too early to be so carefree.


In all fairness, the MC does have a refreshing personality at the start and isn't a pushover. That was the most and probably only enjoyable thing about this novel for me. Who knows, you might love it even though I didn't. This novel wasn't my cup of tea, but it wasn't unbearable. <<less

It started great. Yet, it becomes too preachy indeed. I get it that the FL wants to change the future to “enjoy” her life, but I don’t find it admirable for a woman to try so hard to change a man. The moment I reached chapters 50 or so, I become annoyed at the insistence of the FL to intentionally change the mind of the ML. It becomes frustrating and boring. I can’t continue to read this anymore.

I can't help but to love this story!!! So warm and gentle~

I like the FL the most especially when she open minded not minding that the ML cause of her deaths... but she kind of dense in her feelings or... maybe she still denaying...

Next, I love the ML on how he been spoiling her. He do what she wish for and his face turn gentle when it comes to her... many emotions....

All over,

Thank you for translating this~

I really like this novel!

There's definitely romance but please be noted that it's not the main focus. I think you'll enjoy this novel if you read it as slice of life novel.

Personally, I really like the pace. Not too slow but not too fast. It gives enough depth for me to understand what's the going on and the reasoning of her action.

Is female lead OP? Kinda semi-OP to me. The premise is she has lived sixth lives before the seventh life. Of course, she will gain knowledge as she changes... more>> career in every lifetime. Currently, it was known that she was a merchant, maidservant, pharmacist, alchemist and a knight.

Other reviewer said that she was at the top of her every career in every lifetime but so far, there's no indication that she's that good? I mean, yes, she has knowledge and somewhat excelled at what she do but she just happened to have a good teacher who will teach her these knowledge and I don't know how long she spend in each lifetime but if she lived long, then it would be reasonable that she's excelled at what she's doing. However, she isn't exactly at the top. She never invented something on her own, it was taught to her by her teachers. So, in a sense, she's stealing it? So to me, she's not exactly straight-up OP - read a book and suddenly able to invent a car - but I will definitely acknowledge that she does have some OPness and I don't mind that.

Why she become a bride hostage in her seventh life? Well, strictly speaking, she was forced to do so her. She was a duke's daughter, yes. But her family was only a noble from a small country, ML, however, is a crown prince from a huge country with major military power. When he asked her hand in marriage, she refused at first but was then coerced (threatened) by the king of her country to marry him. Her parents also viewed her as political tool who only has a value if she's able to marry well - thus why she's easily been exiled in her past lives because her parents saw no value of her beyond that.

ML fully awared that she was forced into marrying him thus been respecting her wishes - making agreement to not touch her without her permission, which he abide most of the time. Their interaction is very cute and they took their sweet time so if you're thinking that the romance blossomed in just a few chapters, this is not for you. At the current chapter I'm reading, ML had been showing/hinting FL his affection towards her - sometimes bluntly saying that she's the only one for him but FL always seems to rack up her brain to find a motive behind his action. FL definitely shows interest in him and had some affection towards him but she never put a label to her feeling so she didn't realize if she has a feeling to him. She just know that she wants him to be well.

Why does she seems to save the world? The reason why FL always changes her job for each lifetime is not only because she was curious and seeks more knowledge (back when she's a duke daughter/her country's crown prince's fiancee, she was denied of extra knowledge beyond what's necessary to make conversation in the social circle) but at the same time, she had been wanting to prevent the loop from happening. This also ties to why she agreed to marry ML, in the first place because after analysing, she realized she had not been in contact with ML and always seems to die before she arrives in his country or die because of the war he's waging. At the moment, she believed, the key to stop the loop is to stop him from waging war. Therefore, she's kinda saving the world because of that.

Do I recommend this? Yes, I do! But please don't expect heavy-reading from this novel. As I said, this novel feels more like slice of life with schemes as its seasoning. It's not entirely light as well. I would say, just put this on your reading list and read it when you're feeling it because that's what I do. I've ignored this novel for a long time until I'm feeling like reading it. <<less

So far the MC is a rational girl if a little obtuse about romance. She is just quirky and talented to gain not only the audience's attention and favor but also the ML, without being OP. I am not sure where the plot is headed but I am intrigued and excited to find out if her days are as lazy as she seems to want them or if her experience thwarting disaster in her multiple lives will help her overcome her biggest problem, getting past 20. Or at least solving... more>> all her past friends' problems as a weird benevolent puppet master. <<less

I must say...I thought I found a new jam but turned out that wasn't the case. The brother's relationship built arc was all dulled dumb and weirdly dragged out. I was invested in the story, loved the characters, loved the chemistry but after that arc, it all started to annoy me. I read 10 more chapters and now I'm deciding to drop this.
Big whys:
-The FL is VERY overpowered. She decides to do things and then does it %100. There is no surprise about that.
-The ML turned into a wall. I can't feel any character from him. It wasn't like this from the beginning then he somehow vanished from the story and after he came back he felt... plain and boring.
-The relationship between FL and ML: Didn't get any progress, I would say it progressed backwards even. She continues to say "his highness" still instead of his real name. The supposedly fluff chapters have no fluff on them. In those chapters, you expected them to build their relationship but no, ML acts like a dry stick and FL is over-excited for the merchant related-stuff.
-The translation: Was alright. But it's truly weird how a person can't decide using [] or "". It would change the middle of a sentence for goodness sake... Anyway, it got better. Good thing they decided what to use after a long while.
-FL's absurd disguises: too unrealistic... For example, she decides to be a trainer knight and disguises herself as a male. Like nobody will ask why her schedule is all f*cked up, why is she doesn't participate some days or why is she bulking up all of a sudden... I can unsee most illogical parts but when they are too absurd it annoys the hell out of me.

1, 5 STAR, doesn't really worth your time.
