When I opened my eyes, I was in a different world. I had become the game's villainous princess who was feared by all. Not to mention... Completely naked men I didn't even know were approaching me left and right! “Are you cold? Shall I warm you up with a hug?” “Oh? Have you not had enough yet?” Seriously, what’s up with this situation? And just how the hell am I going to get out of this freaking game?!
This is an interesting premise. So our mc gets isekaid in to an otome game as the villainess BUT a player is currently playing it and from the information we have it seems that she doesn't know what this game is or who the characters are because the moment she wakes up she doesn't recognize who she is (the body she got in to) or any of the other characters in the bed with her. Also an interesting part is that she can see a game screen with information about the quest, status and choices but she isnt the one manipulating it nor does the game seem to direct her to an event, it is the indication that a player is making those choices (literally is a cheat since she can see what actions the player will do). The concept is interesting but I can't say the same with the mc, her choice of action always give me a mixed feeling. If you look deeper, some of her actions make sense but she does them in the most frustrating way. Also as the story progress you will find the characters less intriguing and more of a nusiance as almost everything that happens to Yuriel (the player) are not at all convinvcing (the nicest way to say it). How could a mere maid stomp her way through the events with ease just like that with barely any punishments? At least in other stories the og mc is illegitimate daughter of a noble so she will have the status to save her. But then again, I will probably read till the girl gets her head chopped off but that's not likely gonna happen soon since that's the main story there- our mc transmigrate into a character in an otome game where she can read the status panels of the player that is currently there as well.
This tickled my fancy. The part that I liked most is that our protagonist, who is stuck in the body of the villain of an otome game, can see the game-choice boxes of the game's protagonist. Basically, there's actually a Player outside the game playing the game, making game choices. There is a bit of a discrepancy where Yuriel, the avatar of the Player, is treated as though fe is the Player femself, as though the Player has also entered the game or something. I assume this is just a ill-thought-out narrative choice, so they wouldn't have to pan out and show the actual Player. In the more recent chapters, it's felt as though the game-choice boxes haven't been showing up as much. The story isn't nearly as interesting without them, so hopefully they'll remain central. I've enjoyed Ettsen and Nadricka as characters and the drama they bring to the harem, but I don't have similar feelings about Robia and Eclot. I've been okay with the aspects relating to the previous princess's life (the princess before our protagonist took over feir body) and our protagonist trying to figure out what type of person fe was. Fe is slowly undoing and trying to make up for some of the messed up things that princess had done. Daisy and feir contrast to the other maids is a pretty good reflection of how entrenched the fear of the previous princess was. I don't know how I feel about the emperor as a character; so far, fe's been a bit disappointing. I do appreciate that the emperor's storyline actually involves Yuriel having some success, which I think is necessary for tension to be maintained, but that success honestly feels undeserved. So far, the story's still pretty new, so that might be part of the reason why it's been able to maintain my interest. But I do like it, and I hope it will continue to be written well enough to tickle my fancy. [Reviewed at chapter 29]
At first I was a bit sceptical about reading this Manhwa as I am not really a fan of the harem gener. But after, I started reading it, I was surprised by the depth of the story. It is not like the other stories where the MC knows the future and just walks through it at every step. This story tries to build the character from the very beginning and we get to know new sides of the characters in every chapter. I don't want to drop any spoilers here as the author has really given his all to make it. For now, I can just say that, it's a good read if you are interested in mystery gener and want to read something fresh.
