Akuyaku Reijou Level 99: Watashi wa Urabosu Desu ga Maou de wa Arimasen

I reincarnated into the "Villainess Eumiella" from an RPG Otome game. In the main story, Eumielle's merely a side character, but after the ending, she reenters the story as the Hidden Boss, a character on par to the Heroes with her high stats!! Lighting a fire in my gamer's soul, and taking advantage of being left on my own in my parent's territory, I train! Train! And at the end of my training... By the time I enter the academy, I managed to reach level 99. Though I had planned to live out my days as inconspicuously and peacefully as possible, soon after entering the school, I'm suspected by the Heroine and Love Interests of being the "Demon Lord"...?

The entire appeal of this manga comes from Eumiella's dead-eyed, apathetic look combined with how casually overpowered fe is. Fe has that same type of expression that is used for these types of cutely emotionless characters--the pinpoint mouth and flat-roofed eyes. The eyes are often drawn super large. And the best moments come from when fe experiences some level of excitement or emotion, and feir expression subtly changes. Like, when fe gets excited about teaching people the most efficient methods to level up (methods which end up frightening those who hear them) or when fe gets worried or frustrated. We also see fem quietly nodding to femself and thinking things through, but not really grasping common sense, which can be cute-funny. There's also a slight amount of political maneuvering or strategizing type stuff, though I'm not sure if I would say that Eumiella excels in this area. Fe's mainly just unambitious, which leads to fem avoiding anything that could be troublesome later (even if that means declining offers from royalty). In fact, if anything, Eumiella kinda sucks at conversational skills and socializing. Some side characters are introduced briefly, but then barely play a role. I'm thinking of like Eleonora or Adolf or Rita. And several of the recurring characters--like the three capture targets--don't have very interesting roles, and mainly just serve to be annoying. At least Patrick isn't a flop and seems to actually be engaging with Eumiella in a straight-forward way, leading to hopes of a cute little romance. Obviously, the weight of the entertainment value of this story lands on Eumiellla alone, and for the most part, fe bears that weight pretty well. The artwork is good, though the backgrounds can be simplistic and the facial expressions can grow stale over time. [Reviewed at chapter 11]
