Too Bad

I liked this manhua when it started. The female lead was awesome, the male lead was also awesome and they were cute together.

Then came volume two and everything went south. I love bickering couples when they are done properly but this was just too much. More than anything else all they did together was bicker and mostly because of the female lead starting it. I also love a good palace/political plot but this was really non existent. The plot was stuffed in such a short amount of chapters it just did not turn out well. The ending could not really be considered an ending because of how open everything was left. It is just sad seeing seriously good plots and/or characters take a turn for the worse. Just upsetting,

The first volume was really funny and interesting. It had a lot of potential. The art was so-so, but the characters were really funny. The two MCs fell in love pretty early on, but it wasn't bad.

At around chapter 8, it became constant arguing and the main female lead started ignoring the main male lead. It's still funny, but I don't like it...not anymore...

Volume One - 10/10
Volume Two - 3/10

The 2 main characters were amazing.... I think this could have and should have lasted longer... And the ending was semi rushed in the last 2 chapters..... And many things still unresolved... And transitioning too fast from one scenario to the next.... But.... It was still... Amusing

Wow, so confusing. I'm not sure whether it was the translation or the actual manga that made it such a confusing read.
I thought it had great potential and was entertaining in places, but I often found it difficult to follow and the ending was ridiculous. Nothing was brought to a conclusion and it felt like I'd wasted my time.
Shame, it could have been great.
