Accomplishments of the Duke’s Daughter

Iris, an otome game addict with no time for romance, gets hit by a truck after getting out of work–but instead of dying, she finds herself in the world of a game she'd played just hours earlier. However, she's not reborn as the game's protagonist, the main heartthrob of the harem. Instead, she starts her new life as the antagonist, right at the moment she's being sent to live in a nunnery–for the rest of her life!

This is clearly a manga with a thought-out plot. Personally, this doesn't seem like a shoujo manga focussed on romance. It deals with matters with a mature perspective, more befitting of a josei/seinen genre. The manga has a well-written complex plot. Story: The story focusses more on the overall kingdom, especially Iris. However, it does have a love interest (and an interesting one at that), and their relationship is one that develops properly and naturally, based on trust and respect.  I'll admit that the first few chapters didn't smoothly introduce the supporting characters, so in the beginning it felt like the manga was dumping information from the light novel onto the readers. After some chapters, I got used to the characters' personalities, and that's when the plot truly blooms.  This manga is a good example of showing and not just telling. The manga shows the details of Iris' (the female protagonist) work and thoughts. The only complaint I have about the chapters is that they sometimes go into too much depth about taxes, banking, etc., which may bore readers. Some pages are just filled with textbook information. Luckily, the word vomit only appears in the beginning chapters about Iris' fief's reform. Though economics information do re-appear in chapters after that, they are just enough that they enhance the storyline and show you the importance of what Iris has to do. Conflict: It is rare to read an isekai where the antagonists aren't written as stupid, so the conflict in the manga is wonderful to read. At first glance, the conflict is the typical lover's spat, but there is so much more behind that, including the (very well written) fight for the throne, faction divisions, and tension in not just the kingdom, but also between nations. Watching Iris, her family, her employees/supporters, the royal family, and opposing factions was certainly entertaining, and kept me on the edge of my seat. The resolutions are logical and satisfying.  Characters: Iris' love interest is also written splendidly. It's rare to see a love interest that supports and stands beside the main character so well. (Hint: while in the beginning there was a frame that made me believe that her love interest was a knight, her love interest shows up much later. That's all I can say without spoiling, while still keeping your hopes up that Iris will be with someone of her caliber.)  This is a manga with realistically competent characters - both protagonists, antagonists, and supporting characters. The art is beautiful and I have no complaints. I especially like the characters' eyes and hair. Though we don't see much of Iris' connection with her past life other than her being capable of filing taxes, I think it's not necessary that the story delves too much into Iris' past life. Personally, I think this could have been a solid story on its own without the isekai plot, but that doesn't matter. This is truly a gem. I recommend you read this if you want a manga that has depth and proper development in characters and their relationships.
