This game’s got me obsessed! It’s like it’s taken over my life... wait—HARD MODE ACTIVATED. No-no-no-no-no! It has literally taken me and thrown me into the part of Penelope Eckhart. Love is easy as the heroine, but as the hated villainess, I’m trying very hard not to die… at the hands of my brothers… the prince… a fork… every possible ending is death! This world is stacked against me, but can my wits and insider game knowledge score the affection of these male characters? Or the reset button???
It's very hard to find such a well thought out story in a genre that is drowning in cliches. This story could have very easily gone the typical spiteful vengful Villainess route and made everyone the bad guy for the sake of the main character. Instead they went the extra mile and tried to make all the characters as realistic as possible. There interactions are always interesting to watch and there's a sense of morbid fascination that comes with reading the story. The romance is just absolutely lovely. Even though it's categorized as a reverse harem its clear to the readers half way through that the main character could only romantically love one person. Their relationship build up also feels surprisingly natural and they both just feel like such a good match. She's manipulative and driven, he's paraniod and almost world weary. They both have terrible lives and it just makes scene when they start to seek comfort from each other. The reason I favor the art is plain and simple. It's the nails. Nail polish has always been my kryptonite and damn if this girl's nails don't make me feel weak. It's really the little things, that make me sit up and notice. Alternate name: Death Is the Only Ending for the Villainess
Out of all the isekai or reincarnation manhwa/webtoons I have read so far, this one is pretty unique. The whole game like feature in the beginning was pretty cool. I'm glad that the author doesn't just skip over how she came into the game world like a lot of others do. Lot of other webtoons just half-ass the past, but here her past background story is incorporated into her new life. It's pretty interesting so far. I can't judge the storyline completely because the translations are just getting into the main plot. I totally recommend this especially if you are into this genre. The art style is gorgeous. I am a sucker for pretty characters. Just don't be quick to judge since it gets better the more you read it. Hopefully my opinion doesn't change cuz that would be quite disappointing.
I tried to read this manhwa some time ago and got to the ch5 or so, I disliked the system constrains were she was forced to choose what to say from 3 dialogue options (all bad), I don't like when the characters are forced to do things for arbitrary reasons. Then, after reading all the incredibly high review I tried again, fortunately, from ch7 onwards, the MC is freed from this limitation and it was more readable for me.Unfortunately, even so, the only emotions this manhwa evoked in me were angst and annoyance, from the mentioned start, to the world building were she is not transported into the world of the game but into the game itself (thus subject to game mechanics and some ridiculous things like sudden teleportations and such), to all the unreasonable and hypocrital BS her brothers put her through, to the simply deranged crown Prince and the general lack of logic in many of the actions the MLs take (I won't accept that it's reasonable for the prince to kill the daughter of a Duke just because he feels like it, even if her father couldn't care less, there are political implications, not to mention all the normal ones. I also don't like how the brothers personalities change like pancakes for no reason, I find them inconsistent).So again I was about to drop it around ch20 yet I forced myself to keep reading a bit more. And again it improved after ch25 or so with the appearance of other two MLs and the FL being a bit less freaked out by dying after one mistake, letting her act more freely rather than being constantly on the receiving end. Even so, I found this one to be too "negative" for my taste, I don't particularly like angst, I can swallow it if it's the preamble to something else or if it's balanced by similar amounts of "victories", or in a well planned ending, but if angst and annoyance are pretty much all I'll get from the story (with some minor gain of putting a ML in his place ocacionaly) then like here, I'll have a hard time enjoying it. Then again, as the story progresses the MC will most likely get more and more freedom and it will improve, but so far I find this one readable rather than enjoyable.
