What is this anime?
MC dies and gets transported back in time into the body of a girl about to be married off. On her way to the marriage, she gets kidnapped and instead is married off to one of the leaders of the bandit group that kidnapped her. To be honest there's a lot more to the plot that can't be summed up in a few sentences.

Did I enjoy it?
It was very nice. Could have been better. The first half or so of the first season starts out great, with a plotline pushing the story forward every episode, and making it hard to turn away as you might miss something. Then a little after halfway through the season, it turns more into a slice of life show with tid bits of story put in. This continues into season 2, where the focus is almost more on the everyday person coming in, her cooking for them, them being happy, then a little tiny bit of plot that progresses the story. I'm almost relunctant to call it "Romance" since almost this entire show is characters just crushing over eachother with nothing happening. It was still enough to keep me entertained and wanting more. Although it has a satisfying conclusion, I feel it wasn't brought about in the right way, and as a result lessened the impact.

*SPOILERS BELOW*
Although it does have a satisfying conclusion and end, the post credit scene says to expect more in season 3. So very likely another season will come out.
