If you're looking for manga similar to Lout of Count's Family (Novel), you might like these titles.
An ordinary university student that could be found anywhere, Hirasawa Kazuki, possessed a game character’s body when he came to his senses. Moreover, it was Harold Stokes’, the story’s most hated figure who held the title 『King of Trash 』. For him, tons of landmines appearing like death flags are in his surroundings! Can Kazuki evade the mountainous amount of death flags and advance through the survival route !?
Both center on the premise of a modern person suddenly waking up as a villain character in a novel they have read. Living as the villain, they start to carefully plan how to survive in this world as the villain. Clearly they cannot do the things that would get them punished, killed, etc but they also can't change things too much, since their main advantage of knowing the plot would disappear. The novels revolve around a refreshing main character who shoulders the weight of the world while desperately just trying to survive. Without them knowing it, characters around them start to notice this and start to view them as kind and heroic existence, while the main character still consider themselves as villain characters. These boys will save the world just to survive, and the people who witness their great feats (that they pull off behind the scenes) misunderstand some things, admiring them as great people who do nothing but sacrifice themselves for others

Both of the novels portray a misunderstood villain (our ML) that is just trying to survive. Love the fact that people around both of the ML misunderstand everything that they say giving them more credit than they deserve, very funny in my opinion. If you liked "Trash of the Count's Family" you will love this novel (●'◡'●). (and the opposite is true as well)
After his death, Bern awakens 10 years into the past as the third prince of Kailis, the enemy country. He became a weak and incompetent prince who was to be assassinated before turning 15-years-old.
Features a calm, calculative, and down-to-earth male MC who transmitigates into a young man who will soon meet a bad end. MCs have very similar vibe despite somewhat different circumstances, for example: turning their discriminated character into a mysterious badass, character collecting, crude self-sacrifice (supposedly calculated, but counterintuitive to the whole "I just need to survive" motto?), use of techniques (especially magic ones) to manipulate an enemy despite knowing it will seriously backfire on their physical condition, and etc.
MCs are both same type of cool, level headed badasses tbh

Really nice similar in the fact that they are both reincarnation/travelling between bodies however, the style in which the characters are written is very different. Which I don't mind cus they are both awesome! Like one is a misunderstood/really smart hero while the other is just a smart (less calculating) hero. I simply agreed that they were similar because you should read this novel o(*￣▽￣*)ブ.
King Grey has unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in a world governed by martial ability. However, solitude lingers closely behind those with great power. Beneath the glamorous exterior of a powerful king lurks the shell of man, devoid of purpose and will. Reincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, the king has a second chance to relive his life. Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however. Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again.
I haven't actually read The Beginning After the End. But look at the cover arts. Are you saying these are not the same book? Bollocks. Obviously they're identical. Besides that, from the summary there are similarities like getting reincarnated into a new world and using their knowledge to kick butt... or something. If it's anything like Trash of the Count's Family, it involves kicking butt and taking names and other general badassery. But the main point is LOOK AT THIS COVER ART. This is the SAME PICTURE!!! With the same guy!! Omg if they're not the same story then why even exist at all? Idk

I was transported into the romantic fantasy novel my younger sister was reading, not as the male lead but as the second male lead. If I remember correctly, this punk is fated to go into war in the future and die in the male lead’s place. Okay, I’ve made up my mind. Let’s not go anywhere near the main characters and stay healthy until I can go home.
Both main characters tramsmigrated into a book, know some of the main story plots, and aren't interested in following the plot. Yet the plot slowly seems to be revolving around them. Also both are amazing Korean novels without romance being the main focus. In fact romance most likely won't be mentioned at all. Both great action stories, and has very wholesome children/friendships.
I really like the fact that in "Happens When the Second Male Lead Powers Up" the MC doesn't know the story but his character is really pleasant and he is very powerful but like a calm power. I would recommend it cus both main characters are transported to another world, both are really well written and naturally attract people.
In this world where Hunters with various magical powers battle monsters from invading the defenceless humanity, Sung Jin-Woo was the weakest of all the Hunters, barely able to make a living. However, a mysterious System grants him the power of the ‘Player’, setting him on a course for an incredible and often times perilous Journey. Follow Sung Jin-Woo as he embarks on an adventure to become an unparalleled existence through his “Level-Up” system - the only one in the entire world!
This is copied from my recommendation for the webtoon adaptations of these stories:
As a reader of Solo Leveling--the webtoon adaptation and the original Webnovel (multiple times)--one of the things I liked about the story was how details gradually revealed themselves over time. There was enough information in the beginning to walk alongside the protagonist Sung Jin-Woo, but enough questions that kept popping up to keep me interested and invested. Trash of the Count's Family has been great in the same fashion.
This dynamic makes it a nice read amongst other stories where the protagonist is now living in a story they have read before. This is not a romance story. But for an omniscient reader there are still unknowns that are affecting how things play out. If you pay attention, readers will also notice that the protagonist of Trash of the Count's Family has read only a portion of entire series he was reading. He knows a lot. But only up to a point.
Where mysteries, surprises and questions keep you interested, Solo Leveling and Trash of the Count's Family both fill that itch in a way that satifies me and keeps me into it.
You also get to read a protagonist--and others in Trash of the Count's Family--who gets to do cool things as they become very powerful over time and events.
One more comparable point for both stories is what we don't know about both protagonists. There is no omniscient "the protagonist is like this" descriptions. Even if we know some of their thoughts we have to infer what their personalities are like through their actions instead. This means we don't know if they will become more twisted down the line, keep a moral code, develop a moral code, or perhaps draw the line in places that are seen in their actions as circumstances present themselves in the story. Sung Jin-Woo and Cale Henituse/Kim Rok Soo both need to "survive" and we are not entierly sure what their moral code is, what choices they will make with the power they have.
I know who Sung Jin-Woo turns out to be as a character from beginning to end. I love his character. Cale/Kim Rok Soo has continued to be an interesting character over the course of his story. I'm still think I don't quite have his character down, and that is nice for his story.
The Duke’s daughter, Rishe left the evening party without delay. In fact, for Rishe, this engagement has been terminated for the seventh time. And that’s where her new life starts, having enjoyed the way of life of a pharmacist and a dressed up knight, she lost her life at the age of 20 and now has gone back to the scene where her engagement was broken off. Normally, this could have broken Rishe’s heart, but her mentality now is strong. Her past six lives have been busy and fulfilling, she wants to live longer this time around. If possible, she wants to live a life of leisure and squander money…. To commence her 7th life, Rishe has set up such a diagonal goal. However, in this life, she will be married to the Crown Prince of a militant nation, who killed her in her past life. It’s probably better. It doesn’t matter if it’s a former rival country. In her seventh lifetime, she’ll enjoy loafing off at a castle!!
He read a novel. She's lived a 5-year loop six times already. Both stories have mysteries of "what's going to happen this time" in light of our protagonists's foreknowledge. There is also an element of things to learn about the protagonists through watching their actions, a gradual unveiling of the entirety of their character (Trash of the Count's Family more than The Villain Daughter...). Cale and Rishe are different people. But both have a set of tools that can affect the future they've known. And it turns out they are pretty dang good at what they do.
If you enjoyed either story's gradual reveal of character and influencing a known future, you might like the other for something that feels familiar, but has a different setup and execution.
Also, both of these stories read like more seasoned, better writing for stories of their content. The Villan Daughter...has the setup of girl reincarnated into an otome game as the villainess. But she is mature, very skilled, and actually a regressor (wake up in younger self) with a relatively short time loop lived quite a few times. Trash of the Count's Family also takes the foreknowledge wielding protagonist and makes it interesting by Cale both an interesting persona and unknown parts about him that are part of what keeps you invested in reading more of the story.
The EX rank cleared the final chapter of the national failed game and became an unnamed supporting character inside the game. Substandard and unmeasurable, the EX rank plays a supporting role with an unknown rank.
Both MC's know what's going to happen next since they read/played it.
Both MC's are smart .
They are both great novels .
Both have gods intervening in between .
Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Cid wants to be someone just like that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn't going to get in his way! He trains in secret every single night, preparing for his eventual rise to power—only to denied his destiny by a run-of-the-mill (yet deadly) traffic accident. But when he wakes up in another world and suddenly finds himself at the head of an actual secret organization doing battle with evil in the shadows, he'll finally get a chance to act out all of his delusional fantasies!
The Eminence in Shadow is a satire piece where the protagonist is playing out their imagined role for their fun without realizing his role play is real the entire time. The entertainment lies in the protagonists oblivious but pinpoint actions on the deeper truths of the world. The comedy is predictable. Yet the intrigue of how deep the rabbit hole goes keeps you alongside the oblivious protagonist's role play for those moments of "no, this is real, and here are the details his subordinates thinks he knows about but really doesn't."
Lout of Count's Family is a recomendation for a protagonist who tries to move a pre-read story forward with only a few changes beneficial for himself. The catch is how he--now in the body of a minor antagonist early in the story--becomes the "hero" on the journey to avoid it. "My dream is to be a slacker," he says. Funny and ironic with layered depths you discover as the story progresses.
If you liked the premise of someone living a foreknown "role" and accidentally becoming the hero (with some "no, this is real shit" underneath), both The Eminence in Shadow and Lout of Count's Family are good and great reads (respectively) to try. The second title has a webtoon adaptation currently running on both Copin Comics and Tappytoon.
I reincarnated as the wife of a cursed archduke in my own twisted novel. As the author, I took responsibility and set things right by lifting the curse, which was the key to returning home. I thought my job was done, and just when I was finally trying to go back, the archduke asked me, "Did you really think I wouldn't know that you’re planning on returning to your fiance?" He had completely misunderstood! "Whether you like it or not, I'm still your husband. I'm never letting you go back to that bastard." All I want is for him to please let me go home!
I lived suffering without a home, religion, or parents, but an angel appeared and reincarnated me. "You, a pro when it comes to romance fantasy novels, would you like to reincarnate in a world that was created based off of a romance fantasy novel?" I reincarnated because he said I would have a (handsome) dad and a (handsome) older brother who would spoon feed me, and even gift me a diamond mine, but… I might be a child from my mother's affair? As soon as I was born, I was sent to my mother's household and fell into a family that deprives me. "If I stay like this, I might end up freezing or starving to death by myself!"
