The Villainess is Retiring

If you want to sit back and relax as you watch a chill OP female protagonist acquire everything with the companionship of a sweet, handsome, OP male lead, this is the webtoon for you.

The webtoon is very typical of an isekai manhwa - but with little drama (as of chapter 24). The protagonists are OP.

FL is a transmigrator so she gets the cheat code knowledge. She's a really chill character and is quite clever so it's quite fun to watch her actions.

ML is a powerful demon who is binded to FL because... only she knows his name as she's a transmigrator. FL gains the affection of everyone. The world bends for FL. This isn't exactly bad because the lack of challenges makes for a relaxing read, but it gets a bit boring after a while.

ML is like a puppy with FL. He gets all blushy and flustered, but sometimes flirty. He's loyal only to FL and assists her with whatever she needs.

FL is oblivious to what a demon needs. The "big secret" to ML's way to relieve desire other than seeing blood is revealed in Chapter 20. And then FL deals with it nonchalantly like a pro B^)

I just feel like the relationship progresses way too fast, and the demon, an extremely OP being, submits way too easily. He literally acts like a dog. All the situations are written too conveniently to favour the FL.

The art is good. The dog is cute, the FL is beautiful, the ML is handsome, etc. 

Overall, it's a nice read, though at times the extraordinary favourable situations that FL gets is blatantly obvious.

The FL is strong, level headed and hilarious. I love the dynamic between her and Harry, the ML, since it's refreshing to have a more bashful ML when the FL is teasing him. His dog form is absolutely adorable and him, and others around the FL have her best interests in mind, such as the holy sword and Emma. 

I love the story and I'm very excited to see how it progresses.

Too uneventful, nothing really much going on. There is no real plot atm, Dropped it for now. 

The story is meh, nothing yet exciting, Idk but i really had a hard time reading this, it just felt too boring. There is also too many guys that doesnt help the story, uneccesarry love triangles etc. The ml, the demon doesnt act like a demon, but like more of a dog, which is dumb, its not cute just irritating, the female lead is kinda good, but a lot of inconsistency. Overall i really didnt like the story and the characters.

Fluffy and wholesome, with a smart but chill FL that slowly gathers powerful allies and uses them to improve everyone's lives. Highly recommended!
