Will add rating when a bit more comes out.

Do you want an independent woman who was thrown into an otome game at her destruction flag? Do you want to see how she stands up for herself without needing rescue from the Male Lead? This could be the novel for you. Nothing admittedly groundbreaking for the villainess lady genre but it will give you diabetes. The Male Lead swoops in like an eagle catching an unprepared rabbit, the sheer impact shocks the poor rabbit. This is my first otome novel where... more>> they talked about a sequel to the game that the MC has no knowledge about and in that case, the story has potential to go through many different routes. If you need a fluffy shoujo otome novel, this is definitely worth a try. Plus, the name of the Male Lead is absolutely nuts! Please welcome His Royal Highness, Aquasteed Marineforest. <<less

WARNING: This is more of a long rant than a review.

To be honest, I was thinking about rating this with 4 stars (because the Translators were pretty good) but I dropped it down to 2 stars because I just can't read any more than I already have.

The main problem that I have with this story is the MC (Main Character), Tiararose. There are a few other factors but the main character is always the make-it-or-break-it.

At the start, she had potential to be a well-rounded character with room for some character... more>> growth. Very quickly, I began to realize that there is little to no substance to her.

Tiararose, was interesting at the start. I thought she had a strong sense of justice and an unyielding spirit. This personality of hers made me cheer for her when she stould up to the Otome game's heroine, Akari. Her close relationship with her parents made me smile. I also thought her interactions with ML (Male Lead), Aquasteed, was very adorable as well.

Then, well... let's just say things took a turn, and not a very good turn either.

Spoiler

Unfortunately, I only thought she was awesome until she and Aquasteed arrived in Aquasteed's country, Marineforest. There, she meets the sequel otome game's FL (Female Lead), Aishira, and everything just went downhill from there.

She literally does nothing but cry and get jealous this whole arc. Her constant cases of "insecurity" makes reading the story incredibly frustrating.

And, yes, I put quotations around "insecurity" because that is what Author-sensei wants you to think she feels. Rather than being insecure, however, I see Tiararose as someone who has no common sense whatsoever. She's distrustful and spoiled, and she doesn't reflect on her actions (or inactions). In a way, she's very self-centered.

I understand jealousy, but not to the extent that Tiararose had dragged it on for. There's a fine line between being jealous that Aishira wants to get closer romantically to Aquasteed, and just not trusting that Aquasteed will choose her, Tiararose. She also doesn't trust Aquasteed enough to confide her worries. She merely bottles it up like she's supposed to be the "bigger person" for not making a huge fuss over it and then cries about it when she's alone, creating countless and pointless misunderstandings and frustration just to push the plot along.

True, she's technically in a game and her fears of Aishira stealing Aquasteed from her (because Aishira is the FL and Aquasteed is the Capture Target) is not unfounded, but she needs a better excuse than to continue blaming the game setting for her "insecurity".

If the world she was in truly followed the game logic, Tiararose wouldn't have been there to witness Aishira's attempts to "capture" Aquasteed in the first place.

Her very existence means that the whole premise of the game should serve as a reference, not a guarantee. However, she does not get that. She relies too heavily on the fact that she's in a game world to understand that things have changed because she's the one that changed it. She doesn't realize it and she still hasn't even at chapter 52. It's truly frustrating and I cannot stress this enough.

Moreover, she was so harsh to Akari for not following etiquette and dancing with Hartnight more than proper, but (where I'm at in the story) she sneaks out of the castle with a man who is not Aquasteed, her husband, to go to a place that is isolated from civilization with them two being alone and together. Oh, and did I forget to mention that she's currently the Crown Princess?

Now, if that ain't hypocrisy at its finest then I have no idea what is.

And other than receiving the blessings from faries (that somehow did not exist nor have a variant of in her country despite the two countries being geographical neighbors), she has no redeeming qualities. Even having a domestic skill like baking really doesn't nearly do a good job filling the plot hole that is Tiararose.

[collapse]

TL;DR Spoiler: Basically, Tiararose has no substantial character growth after she broke off her engagement with Prince Hartnight. She "grows" because the plot dictates her to.

Character growth is dependent on how the character reflects on their actions, and Tiararose doesn't reflect until, like, the 10th repeat of the same instance. There is no testing-the-waters feel with her character growth. To me, her change seemed rather abrupt, like the plot was leaving her behind and Author-sensei couldn't be bothered to let Tiararose catch up on her own.

At this point in time, she merely feels like a narrator. If it weren't for the characters that interacted with her, braking the immersion, it feels like she literally has nothing to do with the story. She made herself a side character, and not even a side character that I like.

I may be judging this story too early, seeing as I am only on chapter 52, but it's hard to continue reading a so-so plot when you truly dislike the main character if the story. <<less

Rating: 3.7

Eh. It's not bad. There's not much to judge bc only seven chapters have been translated, but it's the basic Otome Villainess Reincarnation story. The trope used is the one where the original protagonist of the game is actually an antagonist.

She does pretty well keeping her cool during the Engagement Break scene, but I do wish that she'd been given a chance to actually save herself. Aquasteed Marineforest (lol at the ridiculous names in this) ends up being the one to rescue her and redeem the status of the... more>> poor Damsel in Distress. What better way to prove she's not as pitiable or pathetic as one might believe after being dumped by the idiot prince/fiancé than to publicly get the approval of another prince? Male approval as a necessity for redemption/value as a female individual seems to be an overreaching theme. But the translations are pretty good, & the male lead seems cool so far, in that he takes her wishes into account when setting things up for them to be affianced. <<less

Before I jump into the story review, I just want to take a moment to say what is up with these names?!! Tiararose, Aquasteed, Hartnight, Marineforest... it's like the author just kept clicking the random word option on dictionary. com. Hilarious and painful at the same time. As for the story... it's good up until about chapter 25 (though I did switch to the raws so maybe some things got lost in translation). But, as I see it, the main villain suddenly becomes buddy buddy with the MC out of... more>> nowhere- I believe she refers to her as her "best friend" at some point. And the entire arc after she arrives in Marineforest is a bit... fanciful? It feels more like the story went off on a dozen long chapter tangent rather than continuing cohesively. But, for the first couple dozen chapters or so, the story isn't bad. <<less

After the first 2-3 arcs, you can stop reading.

After that are pretty much just fillers that the author drags out. Nothing really happens, and nor is there any significant character development. Tiararose and Aquasteed's relationship is depicted very superficially, and at chapter 73 (in my opinion) still feels like total strangers. Once again, I'll like to repeat no character development happens after the first few arcs either (not that there's much happening thete either). So they all remain pretty shallow as characters. Furthermore, Tiararose becomes your typical heroine that somehow... more>> does nothing and something at the same time. I wish I could say the later arcs at least have good subplots, but they don't. They all are short and read like anticlimactic slice-of-life non-adventures. <<less

This novel was fine at first, but then it's boring. It's only about the daily life of an insecure girl that can bake. I gave it a chance but I can't read it anymore.

The fluff was so so. Because everytime they kissed, the next day Tiara would became insecure again. It's tiring.

They're married now, I don't know how the author gonna milk the novel now and I don't want to find out.

I did not read up till the translated chapters and dropped this series at chapter 9, please take this review with a grain of salt.

The reason I dropped this series was mostly thanks to the lack of drama, or rather the lack of anything. Very quickly the engagement was broken off, and... great that's settled.

Spoiler

The prince realizes he's in love with Tiararose and... she rejects him immediately for the LI (high spec prince). Although I don't particularly feel that it was wrong of her to reject him but, I can also say that it was somewhat unrealistic. She has been with him most of her life then because of this incident she quickly went to another guy. I seriously felt bad for the prince rather than for the protagonist and the LI because there was no emotional attachment towards anything but to the new LI. Best part though. was there are cute scenes of dating... yay?

[collapse]

Generally the issue is there is a lack of conflict or cathartic emotion. Things get resolved so quickly to the point that it feels like a fan fiction of a story the author has read, then decided to expand it and the fact it is a "reincarnated into a game" feels like a gimmick that was the premise then discarded. (I notice there is a tag for multiple reincarnated individuals but it doesn't give enough substance to want to see where that goes.) Perhaps the story picks up a new arc but I don't feel like it needs to be continued in any way.

I do like how cute it was but... it felt slightly unnecessarily long. It's not a bad series it's just not a very interesting series. The reason it's 1 star is because although it doesn't do much for me as a cute series (I don't consider it really good for the the sub genre of "cute story") it just feels unnecessary. It picks up with the LI proposing to the MC and then the scene (described above) just took me out of it because it was resolved so quickly that it feels like there is nothing to add to the series. There is no real tension and there's nothing to look forward to. The rating might be harsh but it's in light of the fact it's still an ongoing series and the story wasn't written well enough to want me to keep reading. <<less

This story begins fine, just a bit cliche. I wasn't expecting a lot anyway and the first couple chapters are decent, just a satisfying revenge story with a logical MC. But after that, everything goes downhill.

The MC, named Tiararose (all the names are atrocious btw), originally has backbone but she quickly dissolves into a generic MC blob. She's now just an angelic sweetheart who blushes anytime her fiance, Aquasteed, so much as blinks (his name is so bad, I want to die).

The structure of the first arc holds it together... more>> because at least there's an actual antagonist. The villain keeps some tension and the way she's dealt with is satisfying. But the second arc lacks all of that and things start falling apart.
Spoiler

For no reason, the villain from the first arc suddenly becomes BFF's with the MC. On top of that, there's no antagonist in the second arc. The 'love rival' isn't remotely evil, so it just feels like a big waste of time. The worst thing she ends up doing is almost speaking up to disrupt the MC's wedding. But the side characters stop her instantly so nothing even happens. Honestly, I might've applauded her for ruining the wedding because at that point, I think I was brain-dead.

[collapse]

By now the plot has devolved into 'TEE-HEE!! Just baked some sweets!!!! But oH NO??!! Someone stole them!??!!!' What an absolute joke. <<less

Frankly, this is disappointing. If you would like to read a good story that's worthwhile then this will barely meet the mark.

The reasons why:

... more>>
Spoiler

The story lacks character development and the plot is bland. The MC is quite toxic as the chapters go on. It's seems that as she becomes more in love with Prince Aquasteed (the names are ridiculous btw,) the more jealous and illogical she is. For example: when she met the sequel's heroine Aishira and noticed her kindness and lack of malice towards her, she had the audacity to think "It would be easier if she was like Akari." Akari was the heroine of the main game and was malicious during the first half. That left an extremely bad taste in my mouth. Then the story goes on to have Tiararose be blessed by the forest fae and king (apparently it was extremely rare to be, even the original heroine was not blessed by any spirit king/queen.) That made it cliché as heroines always seem to be OP. The drama in the story was pathetic as well, from going to argue with the actual spirit queen of the sea over some of the loss of her sweets to befriending the sky king and making the sea queen jealous, which almost caused the destruction of the entire marineforest. What I find ironic, was that the out of all the characters, ranging from Akari to the sea queen, the one I actually hate the most was the main character herself. Tiararose was incredibly toxic, jealous and insecure despite being raised by a doting family for a good amount of time, and despite the constant love and assurance of Aquasteed, she still manages to nitpick every problem and be overcome with grief.

[collapse]

As for the saving graces of this story:

Spoiler

The only source of character development that I found was in Akari. She went from a spiteful villain hiding behind her heroine halo to a caring friend that was supportive, which was surprising. Aishira was a good addition because she truly was a good person that had realised her love for Aquasteed too late. Although I was disappointed when she almost stopped the wedding because of her realisation for her feelings, she still recognised her mistake and repented thanks to the help of Akari. Prince Aquasteed was your typical loving prince, the difference being that he didn't have a solid reason for loving Tiararose. I find it difficult to understand how someone can fall in love just from looking at someone else's different facial expressions from reading a book. However, he is unwavering and supportive so kudos to him.

[collapse]

Overall, I'd say the story is so-so. It's readable, the translation is fine and the settings are good, but it's not enjoyable. <<less

Okay so first review ever (yey!)

Now this story is a pretty interesting fit into the whole "villaness otome game" genre. It follows a young girl by the name of Tiararose (different) who pretty much gains her past memories. From the looks of it the memories don't really effect her. They just give her the knowledge of future happenings i.e destruction route. Best part so far is that there's no weird 180 in personality! So it seems like an extension of herself like her mind just became clear. Anywho It's... more>> pretty interesting and I can't wait to see how everything unfolds and the so called "heroine" is fishy as fish sticks! Gurl is sheisty. <<less

I've read ahead on the original, so this is more of a synopsis of what to expect with some general plot spoilers:

Essentially, this is an Otome game plot featuring the love rival engaged to the prince, except as soon as the prince dumps her, the prince from the sequel picks her up. She only vaguely knows about the sequel, so she experiences uncertainty and jealousy.

In other words, the villainess of the first game immediately becomes the heroine of the sequel/expansion.

As for the quality of the story, it isn't fluffy or... more>> too serious with the drama, so more light-hearted drama that only lasts a few chapters with each incident. It's okay but a bit plain. <<less

Karma train is fast in this one...

Cute pure MC and a mysterious, gallant and vaillant prince, good cocktail that will melt your heart... You may get diabete after reading this...

Antagonnists that you will hate but the autor seems to want you to pardon them...

At chapter 13 the novel could end just fine so dont stop reading before this chapter...

But the bigger picture seems to be still hidden so I will stick close to this...

Finally a novel with a bit of common sense. You just don't casually steal a man who is already promised to marry someone else. Also with people who has a common decency to know what was right from wrong. They weren't as easily manipulated like the idiotic prince.

For once, the MC is not humiliated by her ex-fiance and the damn heroine in front of everyone and she defended herself from the senseless accusations.

What I don't like is the heroine awakening her powers, she didn't deserve it. Anyone can see just... more>> how self-centered she was. Still, it's great the ex-fiance prince realized his mistakes. You just don't throw away 10 years worth of relationship for someone you just met, you give her the benefit of a doubt and a chance to defend herself.

Good for the MC to meet a prince like Aqua. Although I think the naming sense of the author is a bit corny, that may pass since they did a decent story like this. <<less

I think this one isn't my cup of tea.

I first read some chapters of the Manga, but since the updates were too slow, I decided to read the novel.

Frankly speaking, in the start it was interesting and enjoyable. I was satisfied with the story, even if it wasn't the best one. Then, as I advanced in the chapters, it became less and less interesting to me.

And when the first part of the story ends...

Spoiler

After the Marriage of Tiararose and Aquasteed. The plot became something about sweets disappearing.

[collapse]

In truth, I wasn't enjoying the reading since sometime before.

Spoiler

The chapter when Tiararose was kind of kidnapped by the Forest Fairy King and Aquasteed go after her is one of the chapters that I read while thinking "Ah... how pointless." At this rate I already was feed up with the story...

[collapse]

Since I really liked it in the start I can't say "don't read it, it's just waste of time". I didn't liked it but you might like.

Just a Alert. It's so sweet that you might need insulin.

That being said, if you like fluffy, slow and peaceful storys, you should read it.

It's not my cup of tea but it can be your's.

Pardon my grammar. English isn't my main language.

Hope this review helped you out. 😄 <<less

a pretty good story, if only the author stopped at the end of the second arc. The story is really easy to predict but the first arc was really well done with a heroine who shows how much a good villainess' situation is absurd. The ML is also really sweet. All in all, the first arc could end the story, it would have been ok, even makes it a really solid read.

The second arc shows a rose-colored world
Spoiler

ex-rival who became best-friend at the drop of a hat, the new rival super predictable...

and the heroine's character takes a nose-dive with the usual cliche "if fates (the game's plot) is already written, it will most probably come true !" then ensue plenty of misunderstanding bla bla... with rival for the ML too but it was just lukewarm... I was reading till the end of second arc just to say "ha, knew it".

I was already planning to drop it at that point but still tried the third arc and, oh my ! it's even more unbearable to read, bye bye~~ xD

tldr : if you like novel with good villainess and sweet romance, read the first, maybe the second arc but know that you will probably lose your time after the second arc (though just reading first arc is enough to make you feel a completed work :)) <<less

The story takes a while to warm up. The beginning is extremely cliché to the point it grates on the nerves a bit, but once the main couple is married, the plot picks up and interesting things start to happen. Not kissy kissy, jealous partner plot, but character developement and hidden stages.

The novel remains soft and mushy nontheless, but I actually love it now. The story is finding it's balance and the mysteries being revealed are interesting and fun. I'm glad I kept reading after the wedding.

This novel is really generic and boring. It's probably ok if you read one chapter every other day but binging it like I did makes the whole story unbearable. It's also not a problem with the translation. The translator did a good and this review isn't a reflection of the translation. Relationship problems that come out of nowhere become more obvious since they happen really often and it's clear to see how much the author is milking the story after a while. Tiararose falls in love with the guy who... more>> confessed to her so quick it gives readers whip lash and the longer their relationship continues, the more annoying it becomes. Tiararose has about as much character as the two things in her name and the others aren't much better. The ML (forget his name) is just kind of there to make Tiara blush and the only adjectives I can describe him with after reading 30 chapters is that he's "nice" and handsome. The antagonists are suppose to be hateful but they're so idiotic that it's more funny. They're actually one of the better parts of this novel. <<less
