After her lowly mother married a count, Aria enjoyed a life full of luxury while harassing her gentle stepsister Mielle. Several years later, Aria is about to be executed when Mielle reveals that she wickedly tricked Aria into building the bad reputation that ultimately brought her to the scaffold. Just as Aria desparately wishes she could change her fate, she sees a curious hourglass that takes her back into the past. Now, Aria can destroy Mielle by using her own tactics against her like a true villainess. The power of the hourglass is on her side... Can Aria take everything from Mielle, or will her actions change the past in ways she couldn't have imagined?
Loving the mc's character so far, she doesn't do a complete flip to her character (still a noble brat, just lowkey). This is the right kind of villain, instead of trying to be a better version of herself (in a good/innocent way) to help herself and others to avoid death/destruction she becomes a better person (in an evil way) in order to save herself and bring chaos to others. If you're a person who dislike actual villain "villain" (a person who does actual bad things) then you'll find her actions uncomfortable. She's a bitch. At first I wasn't excited about the romance part but wow, I love the ML and the two of them actually fit each other, no overly exaggerated blush, their interactions feels natural, I feel like a third wheel, a fangirl on the sides every time the ml appears. Mc is a villain, and I'd be willing to be here underling. You'll understand when you get to know her.
This makes me feel so conflicted. This manga is a rare gem among it's kind because the main character is actually a villain i.e kind of a terrible person. While that makes for a great story that I have a lot of fun reading, it also leaves me feeling a bit uncomfortable. I like to consider myself a morally up right person and you see, the thing with the main character is, that she's a BITCH. While it's very entertaining watching her plot away behind the scenes some off the actions she takes on stage leave me feeling icky and, not wanting to support her. Like with her teacher. This woman genuinely LOVES her yet her intentions towards her are so cruel. Not to mention what she's doing to poor Oscar. He's the only real innocent in this story and I hate how he's being tormented.
Now I haven't gotten that far in this yet, but I had to write a review because of how conflicted I felt. I love stories like this; stories about a character put in the role of a villainess. However, the main character in this is different from all the rest. She's like an actual villain. She's cruel and manipulative. It makes a lot of sense though. Unlike other characters who are driven to do better, she's lead by revenge. She doesn't want to win everyone's favor, she just wants to crush the person who hurt her most. This is new for me, so its very intriguing. But manipulative characters are always the ones I hate the most. She's like the bully who hurts your favorite character and gets away with it because of her annoying yet amazing acting. It's hard to root for her because of how cold she is. She's a true psychopath. But it's very interesting to read and I wonder if she'll ever change or what she'd do after getting revenge.Also, I find it very weird that the sisters are so similar. Other than height, there's basically no difference in the two. They're supposed to be step sisters or half sisters. Even their personalities, they're both cunning villains.
