The noble class that treats those born with white hair or heterochromia as treacherous snakes, Shirley was born into the family of the most powerful duke in the land adorned with stunning hair the colour of snow, and non-matching red and blue eyes. Hated by her own family, and having the only man who she ever loved snatched away by a jealous younger sister on her wedding night, she is imprisoned on false charges. Enduring torture and humiliation, she vowed to take revenge against those who wronged her. But, even though she escaped, in her belly there was the child of her former fiancée. Even if the man himself is hateful, an unborn child is without sin. After giving birth to healthy twins, she thought to leave them at an orphanage for safekeeping, but… “Ah, what to do, my daughters are just too cute.”
So none of that background information in the synopsis is covered in the manga. Like, at all. The most we can figure out is that Shirley had a noble background and had to survive on feir own. Though I guess Shirley's background isn't the most important thing in this type of story. It's a story about an overprotective adventurer mother, who wants to protect and coddle feir two cute daughters. A big part of the plot has involved the adventurer's guild trying to convince Shirley to advance to being an A-rank adventurer and Shirley refusing, because being an A-rank adventurer includes certain obligations to respond to emergency situations and Shirley wants to retain as much freedom as possible. The vibe so far has basically involved Shirley doing heroic things but for entirely self-serving reasons--often reasons involving feir daughters in some way. Since Shirley isn't necessarily attempting to be heroic, it adds a small amount of irony/humor to these moments, though not enough to actually make me laugh. The cuteness factor and action scenes are also not horribly impressive to me personally. Like, they felt a bit generic. [Reviewed at chapter 10]
A must-read if you love OP female leads who dote on their daughters and give everything to them. The story and the art is very meh - mostly to be expected with little to no overarching plot development but it's still a light and fun read. The world seems convenient for the growth of the characters and poses little to no threat to the actual FL. No romance so far which is great! We can see Shirley, the female lead, take control of this world while still spending time with her daughters on her off-time away from adventure work. Sadly, there's not much to recommend this manga for because it toes the line of 'just okay'. Reviewed at Chapter 9.
