Obsessed with medieval fantasies, Marina develops a revolutionary VR device that can bring fictional worlds to life. Her dreams come true when she transports herself to Lasnorok, the setting of her own novel. The problem is, she can't get back out! Disguised as a runaway slave boy named Rino, she comes face-to-face with the main character she created, the ambitious Edward Allen Dihas. Can Marina help him overthrow the emperor and survive to make it out alive?
I genuinely enjoyed the first season, but it completely went downhill after that. The entire story was such a drag, and the main characters were almost impossible to like. Our 30 year old "smart" fl acted like an adolescent half the time and somehow had the ability to invent everything with a snap of a finger as if she's a magician. Author tried way too hard to make her appear strong and smart to the point where it just looked silly. She was also portrayed as a feminist, and yet admitted female characters were annoying to write about because "they talk too much for no reason" so she didn't give any of them important roles in the original story. The ml was likable at first, but he tragically turned into this bland and obsessive/possessive dude with no personality whatsoever. His entire existence revolved around the fl after she came to his world. We also have the 2nd ml who ended up being this pathetic pushy character that couldn't take no for an answer and continuously tried to woo fl even though she was repulsed by him. I didn't feel any chemistry between the main characters; both men pretty much treated her as this valuable and fragile object that they like rather than a person. The ending was terrible, and you're left with so many unanswered questions. They dragged out unnecessary drama, yet couldn't bother to go into more details about one of the most important parts of the story at the end. I didn't like it. I mean it did make me laugh in the early chapters, but that's about the only good thing I could say.
Ngl this manhwa reminds me of Dr. Stone. Imagine being a scientist from the 21st century then time traveling back to the Medieval Ages. Having that scientific knowledge and being able to help prevent wars and fights was basically what Marina or Rino was doing. Marina/Rino is literally best girl. Smart, sly, cute, you name it! Also, this is a romance story, and Rino is hiding her gender from everyone in the story soo... hehe.. boy+boy. But don't worry the power of cliche and logic will make it so that people will know Rino's true gender. Overall, the plot is well thought through, the art is splendid, and the character designs are great. I totally recommend this to people who enjoy science or Dr. Stone (although theres no chemicals and machinerys used).
I'm just really impressed with this manhwa. I hadn't really thought it would go to the direction it went, but it managed to convey its message without sounding like a forced propaganda. I also like how we saw her actively refelecting how it really feels to be in a medieval setting, and the repurcussion of her self-misogynist on the world she created. ALSO!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE ALLLLL THE CHARACTERS!!! FL is fantastic and takes pride in herself in being a modern woman, ML isn't perfect but actually learns how to properly respect FL's thoughts and opinion AND HE LISTENS TO HER HALLELUJAH!! 2nd ML is very likeable as well, and almost has the same degree of emotions towards FL, but just chose to go about it very differently that can be seen as disregarding FL so he was very wrong on that BUT HE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE COME ON!! I want to see an epilogue story where he's finally content and happy. Overall this manhwa is DEFINITELY worth the read. I rarely rate a perfect 10 but I just really have to give it to this one.
