Miss Not-So Sidekick

Miss Not-So Sidekick

Hyejung loved to read to escape her daily stress. But that’s before she woke up inside the bizarre world of her favorite novel! Instead of the main heroine who courts three eligible men, she is now Latte Ectrie – a minor villain that everyone hates?! One way or another, it’s a chance to live out her most beloved storyline, with popcorn in hand to watch all the drama! Taking charge of the narrative takes on a whole new meaning!

The humor in both these mangas kill me and the FLs seem more interested in spending their lives the way they want instead of living for romance XD 

Potatolife Potatolife says...

It’s amazingly funny And I almost died reading both of them Because of the faces, the drawings are superb!!!

caynine caynine says...

Both are about someone who read the story in their past lives and are reborn as villainesses. Miss Not so sidekick doesn't take itself seriously and is pretty silly and very funny, Beware of the villainess makes me pity her and just cheer for her to get revenge against those who wronged her

If you like this type of protagonist then you'll probably enjoy: "Miss Not-So Sidekick". The art style is very similar. The main different is the male leads are exactly as she remembers them from the story but it works well.

SecretOtaku SecretOtaku says...

Both have the isekai/reincarnation theme but is much more unique than most since the main characters are strong, hilarious and independant.  Unlike the perfect MC's we get gifted so oftenly these both don't have the ML's liking them instantly.  Definately worth reading.

LilyNoel LilyNoel says...

Both are reincarnation isekai with female protags who figure out their own ways of breaking out of the story's constraints.

MinRei MinRei says...

both mc are hilarious

they both transmigrated to a character of a novel, one being a side character while the other as a villain

miss not so sidekick makes fun of cliche in novels

beware of the villainess mc refuses to just go with the flow (the cliche of the villain being engaged to the crowned prince)

both have a lot of meme worthy panels

Bacteria Bacteria says...

They have some sort of similarity as they both heavily take in the Comedy genre. The protagonists are far different from each other but they both rule over the male leads unintentionally.

In one of the chapters in TGB I was reminded of Nine from BV for some reason.

Although the over all tone and even the attitudes of the mc differs they still both fall on the bad ass category (esp when they are using a sword).

DO NOTE that BV is an isekai while TGB is time travel.

HiloPeople HiloPeople says...

Both leads are hilariously bold and badass. While Melissa subverts troupes, Astina flips the power dynamic between husband and wife and it's all comedic gold.

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke's Mansion

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke's Mansion

Poisoned to death by her own betrothed?! Eunha didn’t wake up in a novel’s story just to get killed off again as an unfortunate extra! To change her story she needs a cover… 6 months pretending to be the fake fiancée of the novel's male protagonist, Duke Noah Wynknight. But will this cold-hearted, angel-faced demon of a man really help her avoid another ill-fated ending?!

Both strong female lead, MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY

I love the sosososos much plus they have that fancy Noble style which i adore

Both main characters are mentally strong women who decide to forge their own path to avoid the ending they would have otherwise faced.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!

At the age of eight, Katarina, a girl of noble birth in another world, has an accident that unlocks her memories–of playing an otome game that’s exactly like the life she’s living now. There’s one problem: she realizes that she’s playing the role of the villainess, and only bad endings await her! What will it take for her to “break the game” and live a happy life?

Both FLs got isekai'ed into the role of a villainess in a novel. Knowing the kind of ending they will get, both tried to find a way to avoid meeting their doom and become capable FLs in the process. Both have the "villainess face".

.

.

[SPOILER] kinda?

Both of the heroines of the novels got "captured" by the FLs instead of the other male candidates and become good friends.

Both stories take a comedic turn when female MCs reincarnate into the villainess of an otome game/novel.

Doushitemo Hametsushitakunai Akuyaku Reijou ga Gendai Heiki wo Te ni Shita Kekka ga Kore desu

Doushitemo Hametsushitakunai Akuyaku Reijou ga Gendai Heiki wo Te ni Shita Kekka ga Kore desu

When a young Astrid-Sophie von Oldenburg trips down the stairs, her memories of being a military geek in her previous life awaken. She remembers she’s in the world of an otome game she played in her previous life, and what’s more, she’s what people refer to as a ‘villainess’. In the game, the villainess is destined to face a destruction ending, but this Astrid-Sophie vows to be different. As she gets older, she becomes obsessed with recreating the power of modern weaponry using magical techniques, by taking advantage of the magical talent bestowed upon her. The heroine? The prince? Shaming her family? Being exiled from the country? If only a bad end is destined for her, then she has to crush it through sheer firepower!

Both remind me of murderous/overpowered FLS. They both are prtety determined and from my experience, if you liked that one, you will most guaranteed like this one!

nattalief nattalief says...

Both are mc was reincarnated into an otome game. Plus both mc is how do you say it more powerful? stronger? and shoves romance and the male leads aside just trying to survive. 

The Villainess Will Crush Her Destruction End Through Modern Firepower, I like this one more since its more unique. The mc uses her knowledge from her previous world and makes weapons preparing for her fate. Its more my style, But both manga is very good for otome lovers.

Saigo ni Hitotsu Dake Onegaishite mo Yoroshii Desu ka?

Saigo ni Hitotsu Dake Onegaishite mo Yoroshii Desu ka?

The engagement between Scarlet, a noblewoman from a ducal family and the Second Prince Kyle was suddenly annulled during the ball. She had been falsely accused of harassing a girl called Terenezza, daughter to a baron, whom the Prince doted on heavily. Condemned by everyone around her, forced to burden all manner of crimes, she finally decided enough was enough.“Before I leave here, may I ask for one final thing?” As the crowd threw their boos and jeers, and that good looking guy flung his insults ─ Her palm spun like a drill and the ballroom floor was stained with blood.

Living as the Tyrant's Older Sister

Living as the Tyrant's Older Sister

When I opened my eyes, I was inside a fantasy novel world! The beauty I see in front of the mirror is the future tyrant's older sister, Alicia! She's not even a protagonist or an antagonist, but a character that doesn't appear much and gets beheaded by the (upcoming) tyrant little brother. My life is all about escaping that fate from the novel. In the end, I seduced the male lead's merchant friend who also doesn't appear much and was about to leave the country with him. How-e-ver...The face of the man who spent the night with me was extraordinary.

Villainess in Love

Villainess in Love

So I’ve become Yunifer Magnolia, the villainess who’s crazed with jealousy that Duke Ishid Lucrenze, the devastatingly handsome hero, has eyes only for Raelle, Yunifer’s best friend. Yunifer torments Raelle so much that Yunifer’s killed off at the end. But... I’M Yunifer now. UGH! Good news is, I’ve reincarnated a year before her tragic end, so there’s time to make sure Ishid and Raelle have a fairy tale ending (and I stay alive). Bad news is, I got drunk and woke up with Ishid next to me. Crap.

A Royal Princess with Black Hair

A Royal Princess with Black Hair

Caruel and Euricienne have a lot in common: they're both 16 years old, belong to royal families, and absolutely hate the idea of a political marriage! Both are determined to make the other beg for divorce. But enemies on the sidelines are also scheming to tear them apart and even threaten their lives! As Caruel and Euricienne overcome various obstacles together, perhaps they're more drawn to each other than they initially thought… Will they follow through with the original plans to end their arranged marriage? Or does fate have something else in store for the reluctant couple?

AnnCathrin AnnCathrin says...

I'd definitely recommend reading one if you've read (and enjoyed) the other. I read the black-haired princess first, and couldn't help but think of it while reading Beware of the Villainess.

Similarities:

- a strong female lead (both in character strength and physical strength)

- a hilarious plot line

- awesome cliché breakers (Beware of the Villainess deconstructs typical 'romantic behavior' in reverse harems, Black-haired princess subverts the typical princess-marries-prince trope)

- FLs who are more than prepared to beat someone up if necessary

- a world where magic exists but isn't really used/cannot be used by the FL

- a good supporting cast

- a general refreshing feeling

Differences:

- the FL of BotV is a villainess, thw FL of BHP is not

- BotV is centered around how horrible the 4 MLs are, the FL's friendship with the original MC and the supporting cast. BHP has a very wholesome ML and FL who make a good couple.

- BoTV is an isekai; BHP is not

The Golden Haired Elementalist

The Golden Haired Elementalist

I thought I was dead, but when I woke up, I was reincarnated as a nobleman's daughter?! The only thing I did in the seventeen years of my first life was studying. Now that I'm alive again, I won't live just to study! The second life of an ordinary middle school girl with a slightly strange personality, Jean, begins an unstoppable journey on this continent!
