Regaining the memories of his previous life, Cyril realised that he was an otome game’s character, the villainous daughter– Sophia’s butler.

At the rate things were going, Sophia would eventually have the prince stolen away from her by the heroine, fall into darkness, and be executed.

Wanting to save the villainous daughter he was so fond of, Cyril moved to eliminate all the factors that would cause her to fall into darkness, raising her up to be a talented and beautiful girl who could win the prince’s love, however…

The history is good, romance is nice, and high society etiquete and interaction is accurate. However, when you realice the age of the characters is 12, things become utterly ridiculous. Whathever a bunch of 12 old kids decide in their playing around is meaningless, the ¨faction¨wars is plain stupid and taking it as a life or dead matter is paranoic.

If slavery is forbidden in your country you will more likely get in trouble when you go to the mafia and pay for a ilegal slave you have rescued (you don´t... more>> get away calling it a gift) than just simply disregarding the other party (mafia) , even more so when that party GOT YOU EXECUTED in the game by PROVING YOUR WRONGDOINS.

The author creates and unrealistical setting (making out everyone to be some sort of genious schemer) and ends up outsmarting himself. <<less

A very nice novel indeed~ It follows the ideals and struggles that Cyril and Sophia faces and they’re really interesting to read. They are both really lovable and adorable~! They’re so perfect for each other! I ship those two so hard! CyrilxSophia for the win! Also, the yandere, jealousy, in Sophia and her love for Cyril is really good and strong in this one. So wonderful. Period.

I'm the translator, so what else did you expect? lol (Yes, I added the tags, I read the RAWs)

Before anything else though... yes, the protagonist is male, but this is a shoujo novel. Please keep that in mind.

This novel is a romance story about two characters. Sophia (The Villainous Daughter), and Cyril (Her Butler) .

Cyril reincarnated into a maiden game as Sophia's butler, and while one of his motivations is his self-preservation to avoid the bad ends where he's executed with her, he also truly wants to save her... more>> as well. He goes about this by polishing her charms (so she could win the prince's love in this life) and by destroying all the factors that could lead up to her execution ends, but his devotion to her unexpectedly ends up directing her love to himself instead.

Make no mistake though, this romance is a slow-burn. Cyril acknowledges her feelings for him, but he doesn't reciprocate them because he does not see Sophia as a love interest due to still having the mentality and preferences of an adult, making her only a child in his eyes. Though his perception of her does change as they grow up together, his number one priority is her happiness, and he doesn't want to involve her with all the complications that might arise from a noble like her being together with a commoner like himself.

For me personally, the main hook for this novel is the main protagonist, Cyril himself. He's the embodiment of what you'd expect from a maiden game capture target (despite not being one). He's loyal, devoted, selfless, honest, and by far the most gentlemanly character I've ever read about.

I really love this novel, and I hope you will too! (^^) / <<less

It's a new take on the Villainous Daughter story. But unlike those stories where the otherworldly persons become a parent of the Villainess, same gender, or are immediately antagonistic, here is someone who is the opposite gender falling under the same age category and on her side.

Ah...3 strikes. You can see almost immediately why his perfect plans are going to fail...

The MC of the story is pretty much impossible to hate, he's grown up and realistic and a great shojo protagonist. He's a good guy and you can't help but to root for him. He is outstanding at what he does but the story doesn't push it into our faces just to show how awesome he is so it's not really the OP isekai trope. The FL of the story is also cute and likable.
In short what I'm saying about Cyril's character is that he is like the princely... more>> character of an otome game but he just doesn't really acknowledge it. By no means does this mean he's too dense to detect this or the feelings or the female characters though. This is not a Bakarina situation. He's humble not dense.
The story is paced well and each chapter is pretty substantial so it's satisfying to read. The translation quality is very good! <<less

-As of October 13, 2019

Wew I just finished reading up to the current release on the raws and I must say I like these villainess reincarnation as a mob character and trying to help the villaness reform or save her from ruin. What's more refreshing is the heroine isn't depicted as scheming and evil as most villainess reincartion story goes but rather a friend or love rival in a positive light.

As the synopsis states, you can say this is a shoujo WN having male-demographic content and as of the raws... more>> I have read it was on the MC (Cyril's perspective) and I'm speculating throughout it would change to others.

Major spoiler read at your own sake


Major Spoiler

As we jave known, Cyril is raiaing the perfect Ojou-sama that would charm any person and would be willing to do anything for the cute villainess' happiness but turned he was raising a somewhat yandere for him, neither in his knowledge that this villainous Ojou-sama has a plan of her own. If MC is a schemer, so as the young lady as she was educated by MC and neither the MC has any idea that what he taught the FL would backfire on him which is funny.


On the side note I'm kind of fond of Alicia, the Otome game's protagonist, she's isn't depicted aa scheming or a wicked reincarnated person but rather a justifyable charcter, she is somewhat innocent but is a strong willed girl, I find her lovely and somewhat rooting for her.

As the general, mid part of between Volume 1 and 2 was kind of mediocre for me but when another twist and revelation was added kinda perked me up again.

It's a nice read in my opinion, for this time not much of character depictions except the main casts, excluding targeta of affection in the game, but the main cast aka Sofia, Alicia, Cyril and the prince, I like all their characters.

I am looking forward for more character developments adn their growth, MFL and otome heroine especially. Shuraba all the way!

P.S. Cyril gets spooked out whenever Villainess or heroine goes kinda yandere mode. <<less

Simply reading the prologue is getting me hooked to this. Love the fluffiness that comes with yandere tag. I have only skimmed through raw + translated prologue though.

I've long been bored with the Japanese style of writing, but this reminds of the other isekai novel with the heterochromic eyed butler and the "villainous" noble lady. It's very different from the usual trashy stuff; I quite like the protagonist's devotion and sincerity (which was the reason why I dropped the other novel because it was spoiled to be a harem). I also like that although the protagonist obviously has an edge because of reincarnation, everything he has and everything he continues to gain is a result of his... more>> hard work. The only thing that followed him from the previous life was magic, so nothing like pulling plot out of thin air so far.

As long as the quality of the novel doesn't drop and it doesn't become a harem, this will stay a high rated novel for me. Give it a go, if you're into the genre, it's pretty decent. <<less

The main character has his priorities and sticks to them. He's rational and surprisingly, he's not dense. He knows when other female characters are attracted to him, and isn't completely oblivious like the trend of other Japanese-novel characters with similar traits (i.e. Rational, calm, intelligent). It's really quite refreshing to read.

Honestly this is good in the sense that what the characters do is reasonable for their characters. I like that not everyone is as they are first presented. Knowlage of the future doesn't seem to play a big role. Most of the protagonist's edge comes from his previous life and the skills he gained there, not to mention his dedication to studying to better himself. I do not want this to become too much about teen drama and all that stuff when there is so much potential for the political... more>> schemes. I do believe that this

may just eventually become one of those stories where they try to change aristocratic society to their own ideals. I would rather there be complex schemes and plots to gain power and influence to get what they want and it should not come without cost. <<less

I. Need. More.

For the me that was getting bored of the reicarnated otome game villaines kind of stories, this is definetly very fresh.

The MC is a BOY, in a SHOUJO story. And he is not your regular beta MC in this kind of stories. He is aware of everything around him, finally a reborn MC that acts their (true) age. (Don't take this wrongly, he still makes a couple mistakes here and there, but if you read the novel, you will see those mistakes are completely OK)

And also, can't... more>> hate the (incoming) Yandere.

I. Need. More.! (However, each chapter is EXTREMELY long, and the translator releases chapter very frequently in my opinion. So, I don't lie saying that I actually need more, but I am not pushing the translator in any ways, 100% satisfied with the release schedule/rate) <<less

Took a chance on this one and so far it is enjoyable.

The translations are quality and Kuro is known for fast releases as well. Only 3 chapters out at the moment but I'm getting hooked. Check it out for yourself.

Im no that great on reviewing things but, I just want to say this is a great series to read. Not your typical reincarnation novel where the MC is dense AF and cant do shet. The story is great, with capable translator to boot. And for you dipsh*t who lower the novel rating because of 1 chapter of how dense and stupid both faction are, redo the rating and give it a frickin 5 star!!!

The villainess is very cute and MC isn't annoying as of chapter 7. You might not enjoy how the MC is subservient and a couple of repetitive paragraphs the author writes to make himself clear. Also, I have a feeling that this might need a 'harem' tag.
