Description

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

I’m a very ordinary girl who had no interest in otome games, but was suddenly sucked into the world of a cliche Otome game, Heartthrob Love Revolution.

That’s all well and good, I’m not exactly thrilled, but it’s fine. However, why am I the heroine’s older brother? I’m a girl! My character is named Makoto, and as him I hang out with the Heroine to help her get together with the princely character and make it to the end credits.

All righty, I just need to support the Heroine while she does her best. If I do, I think I’ll be able to go back to my original world… but wait, why am I so popular? Hey, prince guy, don’t you blush at me!

Pretty much what’s in the description. The female MC is dragged into a game as the brother of the supposed main character, trying to pair off his sister, while all the playable characters fall for him. It’s not a bad concept, but since all the characters fall instantly, they’re just waiting around for the MC to notice as she trips flags and is targeted by various rivals. The story is also very much dependent on its characters, but unfortunately decided to go with a mix of your standard ‘nice’ types... more>> with one or two quirks to differentiate them and the spurned women types, where there’s one dramatic turnaround scene to redeem them before progressing to the next problem character. So not particularly relatable or realistic. Overall, the story is character-driven but churns out very generic and flat personalities, with cliched scenarios and limited character development. It’s easy to fall into at the start, but hard to keep following since it’s not particularly memorable. Other notes: Recently the MC seems to spend a lot of time with the gross character who spews tacky lines (though since it's a game, all the characters have tacky lines). Also this could’ve made a pretty decent and short comedy, but it’s kinda a mediocre all-rounder. <<less

Surprisingly good.

The protagonist, Mako, is transported from her world into an Otome game world that her friend, Subaru, made. However, she was transported into the body of the Heroine's (Mitsuki) twin brother.

... more>>
Spoiler

Throughout the time spent in the game world, Mako is adamant on not falling in love with anyone, because she wants to return to her own world. Her friend, Subaru, suggest that they may be able to return to their own world if they allow the game to reach its 'Happy Ending', which would require the Heroine to build a relationship with the main 'capture target', Kiritani Riku, also known as 'Prince'.

On a side-note, Mako also ends up developing a sister-complex, which ends up making the story even more hilarious. Luckily, the complex is kind of returned by her sister, and they develop a mutual sibling-complex.

However, Mako encounters several of the 'capture targets', they begin to fall in love with her instead of her sister, the Heroine. Since the beginning the story has been edging in several different types of 'capture targets' with different personalities to differentiate them, however, it becomes clear that this story isn't going to end in a 'harem-end'. Mako slowly falls for one of the 'capture targets', Tsubaki Soutarou, who has been consistently devoted and doting towards Mako, and the least problematic of all the 'targets'.

Just as a note, the author does go into a couple of chapters to flesh out some of the problematic characters. Although, I do understand why they exist, since in an actual Otome game, there generally will be characters that are problematic, I'm not particularly a fan of them. Luckily, they're only the primary focus for a few chapters, and Mako does not end up particularly liking any of them.

Throughout the beginning and middle of the story Mako was constantly trying to deny her own feelings, which really added to the sense of conflict between her decision to love or to not, since she believes that this is all temporary. And, considering she's experiencing a culture-shock from becoming a male, and may not know the norms for male-bonding or the new alternative world, I am more willing to accept that her actions may actually be a product of her previous world view – a slightly loner-ish and tomboy-ish Japanese girl.

However, we don't see Mako going through with her decision to pick any one of the characters, until she realizes that her sister has already chosen someone - Takayanagi.
Fortunately, Mako ends up choosing Soutarou, instead of the other 'targets'. I was rooting for them since the beginning. Near the end of the story, Mako eventually gets her original body back, for a brief period of time, and finds out that Soutarou can still recognize her and love her even with the differences in gender. And by the end of the story, after she becomes a male once again, and it's implied that they'll have a happy future together.

However, I am a bit sad that Mako won't be able to return to her own world though, but it seems like she'll be able to live an enjoyable life in the alternative world though. It's a bit open-ended whether or not Mako or Subaru will ever return to their worlds, and if that will create any complications. And, as a reader, we aren't certain whether the real Makoto will ever return, and where he has gone, now that Mako is still residing in his body.

[collapse]

Even so, overall, it's a pretty good read, although some parts were harder to read through (6 of the 67 chapters were about 2 capture targets that I did not care for). In general, I would recommend, since it seems to be one of the better series with a 'Female-to-Male'. I, personally, found that Mako's female and male perspective to be refreshing, especially in contrast with the villianess and other heroine stories, which are still enjoyable, have become quite saturated. <<less

Rating is 5/5 damn smartphone lol

Anyway, the MC is super popular without him knowing and do not realize that he became the Heroine at the story and not a support chara. Lol, the rivals is jealous to our poor Mako-chan~

Spoiler

Madoka sees him as her rival to Takayanagi even though he doesn’t have a clue about it. Mako still thinks that Mitsuki needed to get together with one of the capture targets, when the capture targets interests is him.

This is super weird yanno

A girl in a boy's body romancing other hot boys is really weird

What happens after she achieves a love ending? Won't it be pitiful for the real Makoto to return to his body and find a guy in love with him but unable to return his feelings?

Then what about the girl Mako that gets transported back to her old world even though she's fallen for an in-game character? Ahhhhhhhhh this is a dead end unless the author gives it a super plot twist

Eh, I came into this hoping it would be something fantasy... Mistaken. It’s a modern world...

Other than that, the relationships seem a bit forced with the puppy and the prince... I dunno, I just don’t see the magic or thrill of other stories.

While a bad guy student council president is nice, it’s kinda “blurgh” to read that he sleeps with women in the student council rooms. I dunno, it just seems like something the teachers would get right on if they knew... and if most of the student know...... more>> I could be wrong or uptight...

Story is just not clicking with me. Stopped whichever chapter it was that the dude appeared. <<less

Tbh mediocre, normally I'm okay with cliches (im a lover of many isekai mangas, dont hate) but the flow here isn't that great and neither are the characters. I can tell the author tries to develop them, but of course given how many there are it's hard which leads this to fall on its face I feel. Especially the characters that end up being important (like the one MC chooses) should be developed but entirely aren't, very shallow and honestly I don't feel the appeal. Falls in love way too... more>> fast. See spoilers for details.

Emotional scenes feel rushed and you don't really get how one scene led to the next, and the MC's decisions are ridiculous. She, as a guy, gets pushed down and knows she can fight him off but obediently agrees to let him have his way (for people concerned, nothing ends up happening) ?? I get that becoming the other gender means she has the right to be effeminate sometimes, but the ridiculous "going with the flow" is actually absurd. The entire novel felt like she was taking care of her children, which makes sense to some point considering her goals but still!! Furthermore, as someone that loves the "misunderstandings" and dense character, this was way too much.

It's not the worst time killer in the world if you're in the mood for something brain-numbing but there are better things to read. I really tried to like this and get a grasp on it before making a judgement and writing a review, but alas.

Also, my personal bias against it,

Spoiler

She ended up choosing Soutarou, which I really don't understand because he just feels so shallow. All he really does is follow her around wagging his tail, idk someone like Kaname feels like there's more depth to them. To begin with he fell in love way too fast?? Esp since his setup is a straight guy and they were good friends, wut.. This relationship feels more like a parent-child pet-owner etc.

Since she ends up choosing him, I have higher expectations for at least his character development, but nope. The other ones aren't that much better; I feel like the author tried with Nakabayashi (the president) but it fell short and the Prince in particular is so lacking.

My personal favourites were Takayanagi and Kaname, even Ichigo, so I'm sad the first was chosen by the sis and the second wasn't chosen..

MC is like detached as hell from whatever is happening,

"I turned into a dude? Oh well"

"I'm in a highly suggestive position and literally love flags are popping up everywhere? Ok, maybe it's a misunderstanding"

It's not bad, I like the storyline, some romances are abit forced but hey it's still a good read.

Spoiler

Could've told more about how Soutarou fell for MC but issok

Spoiler

I like the Ichigo-chan arc, cause MC actually has emotions other than laid back. He's so cute and staightforward, very refreshing.

I skipped some chapters and moved straight to the ending.

... more>>
Spoiler

This is a HE and MC will eventually pick only one person. (Its pretty obvious from the start who it will be tho)

Aside from the typical harem, where all capture targets surrounds MC, we will get to see some side chapters about these side characters which also involves some of the capture targets.

Also

Spoiler

IIRC, there is a sidestory where MC goes back to her original body (and world)

[collapse]

It's a good read if you just want to pass some time. You'll see the stereotypical types like the tsunderes, hyperactives, flirts, serious types, etc. Given that the world is an otoge (Otome Game), which is pretty popular for girls in Japan

Actually, I want to give rate 4, 5.

The plot was good, but somehow not all capture characters always being together with the MC.

The MC, first he was dense, but more he into route with another characters, he also realizes he "liked" by most capture characters.

... more>> What make me kinda sad, the MC should back to her world. And she (he?) Can't tell anyone beside her friend, Subaru who somehow came to another world with her.

Well, I really do hope, this one can have happy ending. 'Cause in the game plot, the heroine can get happy ending right? What happen if the heroine not his sister, but him? It's will be sad when MC get in love and get one route with one of capture characters, but somehow he knows he can't stay longer and should be apart with one who she loves most. <<less

It's extremely "meh".

I liked the feel of the story in the beginning but the endship kinda ruined the whole story for me.

I wouldn't really bother reading this tbh. There are better stories out there.

I really like the idea that the MC wakes up as a guy and tries to do their best to progress the Heroine's story without getting in the way.

Also MC is such a huge siscon, the sibling relationship is absolutely adorable. A bit obsessive, but adorable nonetheless.

The whole "I can't fall in love with anyone because I don't know what may happen in the future" is what's truly keeping me around. I wish the author explored this more often and go into the nitty gritty details. There is one chapter... more>> that gave us a glimpse into how truly helpless MC feels with her predicament and it was great.

I did hope that after transmigrating, MC would become genderfluid since she does have moments where she's "I'm a big brother. I'm a guy". However she isn't. She is at her core, a girl. Despite that she does try to be a good older brother. It's still good, just wishful thinking on my part since the MC seemed to be the type to "go with the flow"

Additionally the translations for this novel is fantastic! The grammar is well done, the sentence structure flows well and the translators did their best to convey everything as simple as possible.

None of that ["Just according to keikaku" (TL: keikaku means plan) ] nonsense. If there was a word or a reference that couldn't translate well into english, they made sure to put it at the footnotes for you instead of spoonfeeding you.

Thank you translators, you're the real mvp. <<less
