The Villainess Flips the Script!

I woke up inside my favorite novel, not as the protagonist, Luca Winterwald, but as Judith, his abusive aunt and the first character to die—time for a rewrite! I’ll hand Luca off to his loving, long-lost uncle as scripted, and then live my own life far from danger. At least, that was the plan. When his uncle arrives, Luca suddenly calls out, “Don’t leave!” Now, I must protect Luca from impending family tragedy, raise him to become the hero, and turn this villainess’s ending upside down!

The art and story are fine, but i think it should be called "The Aunt is constantly dragged around by smatter people" because the original  title makes you hope for a witty and strong FL that's the last thing you gonna get, she's so incompetent and dependable it's pitiful :           》Despite knowing that it's a story and even how the characters think she does no real effort to figure out what will happen, just having a insight in the most convenient moments while the ML and her "son" are the ones really getting things done.           》She's a transmigrated grown ass woman but acts like a guillable and dense child  constantly in need of approval and guidance from the ml and the kid who are so much more capable that i kept asking why she was there in the first place, but the far i read the more became clear that her main use  was to be a kind of humanity anchor to them and just this (along with a weird fitness to baseball) , my friends, are NOT ENOUGH to make her a protagonist, at least not for me.            》And it's really cringy how she keeps treating the boy like a child while he's the one being always aware of everything and even counselling HER of what's the best move but it does not matter cause she just ignores him, makes a mess anyway and freaks her tiny brain out until he and the ML come to her rescue. In an attempt to make her have more impact in the story the author keeps shoving her in crucial situations but also keeps  her from having the witts or the capacity to handle it, and everything always ends up with the dynamic duo saving their beloved (although they still oblivious to that feeling) precious burden (a.k.a the so called protagonist).   To summarize, guess a lot of my disappointment comes from me getting my hopes up bc of the title that wrongly sells an idea (she's barelly a MC let alone a villainess) so to prevent others from making the same mistake, just having a more honest title like "The Aunt is constantly dragged around by smartter people" would be enough to save the time of a lot of readers in my humble opinion.
