On the Emperor's Lap

Jun 11, 2020

I started off very invested in this story, particularly the female lead, Bella. But very quickly the "romance" with the male lead turned me off. He is just... the worst. To be fair, I'm not crazy about his archetype to begin with, but they just take the awefulness too far, and it became impossible for me to feel comfortable with them ending up together after how he treated her and his actions in general. The story is framed as one where Bella needs to "forgive and forget" in order to be with him, but his actions are absolutely terrible, and not deserving of forgiveness, regardless of how he might try to make up for them. And very quickly, the characters, which seemed really interesting at the start, have become two dimensional and predictable.

Now, the art is pretty, and absolutely no shame for people who liked this, but there are much better ones out there.

3/10 story
8/10 art
4/10 characters
4/10 overall
