The Imperial Knight Judith was once a scumbag that would do anything for money. She lived as a slave to money as a dog of the imperial family and a tool of the chief. Under the guise of destitution, she abandoned her guilt. But what was at the end was betrayal and death. However, when she opened her eyes, she went back to being a new knight after six years? ‘I’m not going to be a swordsman for money anymore!’ In front of Judith, who is determined to live a different life than before, the commander of the Red Knights and scouts appears... “I assure you that you will be treated fairly. Why don't you join the Red Knights?” Judith decided not to pursue money blindly as a Red Knight, abandoning her past of being a Black Knight. Can she live this life without regret?
Strong FL with good mind and excellent sword skills! Trauma is not glossed over. Red-haired ML strong too. Power couple! FL's friends are great! ML's friends are also great. Plot is interesting - typical travelling back in time, but FL is a swordswoman who wants to take revenge on previous evil commander and in general, just be a better person this life. But ah, workplace ethics and slight favoritism?... A bit of a power imbalance as ML is FL's commander after all. But I'll look over it because ML is a good person and FL is almost as strong as ML (FL is an aether master, which means she's pretty OP). Art is okay. Anyway, pretty solid time-travel webtoon with a sensible FL and sensible ML.
I'm liking this so far but I don't really get what's going on with the fl and ml- like you barely know her why are you trying so hard to please her?? Like you have literally no reason to. It just weirds me out, I guess it just feels a bit forced it it's still okay. I also feel like the female lead isn't actually a strong person even though she's supposed to be but maybe she's still in shock and that's why she's always on the verge of tears and saying stupid stuff. Additionally I feel like virtually all of the side characters have zero personality but I had a bad day so maybe I'm being over critical haha. The art is great, a little awkward at first but refreshing, it's consistent and very pretty. as I said before the romance aspect weirds me out, like I expected romance, i looked at the tags but I think it's suuuuuppppeeerrr strange that, they met, got in a sword fight, and all of a sudden they're all ✨blushy blushy✨ It's beyond me and I find it awkward. Hopefully it gets better when they inevitably get together- Oo that rhymed! The story is nothing too new but interesting, I don't have too much to say about it. so yeah it's perfectly fine, not my favorite so far but I like it all the same. p.s. I'm totally chill with ml and me being together, im not sour about the prospect of that, they look good together. I just think it's terribly awkward, I'd still give it a shot though, it's just my opinion and I think it's a good read if you will.
The story starts with a knight that only followed her sense of greed and achieved whatever it was to get money. She dies after being betrayed by her commander, the one who instructed her to do all those crimes. I think the way her first life ended is very fitting to how she was leading her life, she met the karma for her greed and for not treasuring the fine things in life. After getting reincarnated the FL showed clear determination to rewrite her past into a better one, and not make the same unwilful decisions again. The trauma isn't her whole personality unlike some stories, and she does her best to change her personality from what it was in the past. She starts to try and treasure her friends and relationships more, change the mindset of responding to violence with violence, and not be so greedy. The ML is a great commander, although he has fallen for the FL and her sword skills he tries his best not to favour her than his other subordinates. He also isn't toxic and respects the FL's wishes, he tries his best to apologize for things he thinks are his fault as the commander so the relationships he built don't fall apart. The FL and the ML are a powerful duo and it's very satisfying to see them work together, their ways of thinking are also something new to look into since it's very fitting with their personalities. The plot also isn't all over the place and I can follow what's happening without thinking "this is going too fast". The knight's jealousy in chapter 19 over the FL and the ML is sympathised with to a certain point, he has worked for years to achieve higher positions while the FL and the ML were born with natural talent and achieved those positions "easier". Seeing the FL treasure her friends, have the will to withstand the punishments for them, and patiently teaching them is very enjoyable to read, the loyalty she's building up with them slowly is amazing character development and I love that.
