With her engagement annulled, Tiararose was supposed to have been exiled from the country. “This is the otome game I played!” She realized on the day before the story’s ending. Is waiting for my conviction the only thing I can do? But, I did not do anything too cruel... Thinking so, the ending proceeds. However, during the judgement, something that was not possible in the game happened. Tiarose was proposed to by the crown prince of the neighboring country.
This manga starts off well, but I did end up dropping it at chapter 22, and I’ll explain why, but first, let me run down the basic events. Our protagonist is reincarnated into an otome game’s villainess the day of her bad end, in which her marriage with the crown prince is annulled. However, she never actually did anything bad, the heroine of the otome game, who is also reincarnated, merely claims that she did and gets the crown prince on her side. This promptly earns condemnation by the King and all of the other nobles. So, for once, people are actually on the MC’s side. Another noble, who is the crown prince of a foreign country, quickly becomes the love interest and a cute little romance begins. To be honest, the first few chapters were good, any nitpickings I had could be easily written away, and while the plot and relationship drama wasn’t anything new, it was still nice to read. However, as the manga progresses, the protagonist becomes increasingly naïve and possessive over her love interest. She is cynical and distrusting of those who might come between her and her love, but when those suspicions prove true, she turns into a naïve moron. Someone tried to kill but only injured me in the process – they should only get a slap on the wrist, they didn’t succeed after all. A guy abducts me and is going to force himself onto me against my will – I want my prince to save me, but not hurt my kidnapper. In other words, she becomes increasingly too dumb to live. Additionally, the author will sometimes write about side characters who it seems like we are supposed to sympathize with, but we just don’t – we have no reason to do so, I don’t care how you frame it, their actions are not reasonable or sympathetic. All of these combine into annoyances that really start to pile up as you go along, which led to me dropping the series after 22 chapters.
I'm interested in the plot and characters so far, but the translations I've been able to find are just. Incomprehensible. I finally gave up in one scene where I couldn't tell what was happening at all. Hopefully there will be a better/more official translation soon though. I'd like to try it again.
Fluff in manga is ideal however it should be given in moderation. Originally had a very interesting premise but it ended up being more self-serving the longer the story progresses. The plot has little to no tension and everything is too convenient for all the characters involved. I mean, if everything has an easy resolution then there's no meaning to anything that they have to do right? Characters that commit "crimes" don't get punished for their wrongdoings, characters that do well are too good to be true and have no flaws whatsoever, the FL acquires powers which she never uses in practice and is only discussed when convenient. The romance here is severely lacking. I've seen more character development from the bread I forgot to throw out than any of the characters. Honest to god, the love the characters have for each other seems very surface-level and incomplete. They never go through anything that could strengthen their love for each other tbh. I stopped at chapter 24 mostly because they've already addressed most of the concerns that are brought about by the plot. I think that at this point they're introducing new characters with the sole purpose of keeping the manga going but honestly, it's become quite draggy and taxing to read.
