The story starts very boringly. But from the fight with the prince's group the story takes off. All the fighting in the wari n their robot sized fighting suits is great to read. There is a lot of comedy when the prince and his group does their actions stupidly. Finally I liked the story very much and it's a good read.
In a semi-matriachal world (I say semi-matriarchal because even though women generally have more control over men, the person on the country's throne is still a man), a world of a video game, Leon uses his knowledge from having played this video game in the real world to gain some autonomy and independence over his own life. He was at risk of being married off to a middle-aged noble woman, but was able to prevent that. When he goes to the academy, like all young men he must host tea ceremonies for women to try to entice them to marry him. And he does do this, but largely because he's awed by the tea skills of his Master and wants to be able to do justice to tea in a similar fashion. < This is a pretty adorable aspect of the manga. Ideally, he wants to be able to live independently and not have to kowtow to the demeaning traditional roles. Leon befriends Olivia, a commoner in the noble's academy, as well as Angelica, the prince's jilted fiance. He is frenemies with his sister and straight up enemies with Marie and her lover-cronies. One of my favorite relationships is between Leon and Luxon, a robot/airship who's an ally of his but is very willing to mock him. Currently, it seems like Marie will be an ongoing antagonist. And Leon will continue to rise in rank and influence. Nothing outstanding, but an enjoyable read. [Reviewed at chapter 15]
Most of the characters pissed me off, but (call me evil or whatever) I really liked Leon's personality. He was so rude and blunt I loved it, you rarely get characters like him. And it was extremely satisfying when a certain someone had their plans foiled. I had very low expectations since it had a harem tag but it's better than I thought and funny at times. I also liked the concept of women having all the power, it was new, I like change. I don't like the mecha though, I keep confusing who is who whenever they use those robot thingies. Yeah, I really like how nasty Leon's personality was. He's a funny douche. But this manga could've been better, and I definitely wouldn't call it the best. See ya. (Update: Change my mind, my overall rating went from 7.1 to b because I got bored really fast after chapter 13. Such a shame.)
