Five-year old Kishouin Reika discovers she has memories of her past life! Always pondering why her own name sounded so familiar to her when she was reborn, Reika finally remembers on her first day of elementary school! [Suiran Elementary School], the school, and her name were from a series called [You Are My Dolce].
It was a extremely popular Shoujo series in her past life, to the point where it was even made into a live action drama! The series starts out when the protagonist, a commoner girl enrolls as a special student into the prestigious [ Suiran Private High School ], where only the children of wealthy families attend. The commoner girl falls in love with the most popular boy in the school known as The Emperor, and becomes the target of severe bullying around the school, and the culprit of the malicious bullying was the character [Kishouin Reika], who served as the main antagonist of the series. [Kishouin Reika], in the series is the typical archetype of a rich girl antagonist. She was spoiled, vain, malicious and lacking remorse! By the end of the series [Kishouin Reika] gets her ‘just desserts’ when The Emperor cancels the forced engagement she had with him by declaring his love for the protagonist as well as seizing all of the Kishouin Company stocks, and exposing her father’s illegalities and corruption.
To her woe, Reika finds she had been reborn as that [Kishouin Reika]! Disillusioned and terrified by her inevitable demise, Reika swears to become the most unassuming, polite, and agreeable girl anyone could ever meet. Find out Reika’s adventures as she tries to prevent her fall!

a very comedic slice-of-life story with a slightly odd (but also lovable) MC and lots and lots of food. the story progresses from primary school and is now into the 2nd year of high school in the translations. this story tends to make fun of shoujo cliches and the MC is a very unreliable narrator, but the whole thing is both fun and funny.
there's no romance for the MC yet and it doesn't look like it will change any time soon so those who are looking for that might be better off choosing a typical shoujo story instead. i find the laid back pace refreshing and usually end each new chapter with a smile and a growling stomach...did i mention all the food?

Not all series need to have an expansive plot about saving the world. In Reika's case, it's simply enjoyable to listen to her life as she inevitably approaches her role as a villain in a shoujo manga. As of the translated chapters, we don't know if the future will be significantly altered from what Reika 'remembers' or if she will eventually be a villain, but as of now Reika is an adorable girl just living her life. There are many points where I even respect the character, going out of her way to help others who were in predicaments like she used to be in her prior life. She's supposed to become a villain in her high school years, but the WN has slowly crept up to them while showing her character in primary and middle school. Not much happens to her other than slice-of-life shenanigans, but through the author's voice it's enjoyable. If you want a comfy series with an entertaining MC, this may be up your alley.

The main character, although supposedly a 20 year old something, is pushed around by kids younger than her and has no back bone what so ever... The only thing redeemable about her is her drive to study more, but even then it says she only gets average test scores...
If the MC wasn't such a tool I would like this story a lot better. Will continue reading to see if there is any character development. Overall the concept of the story is really good and I want to see how it will change, if at all, form the novel she read.

If this, and Otoburi, another similar LN with the same premise, is an indication of what shoujo-based reincarnation stories are, then sign me up for more. At least in comparison to all the ones about shounen protags...

This one is a slightly comedic take on the reincarnation genre, this time as the rich ojousama asshole antagonist of a shoujo-manga. Of course the commoner reincarnate doesn't want to get the Bad End of the original character she now inhabits, so she tries to use some of that great power some people have: common sense. Like Otoburi, there seem to be divergence from the original "backstory" of the story-within-story shoujo manga that the reincarnate-MC is incarnated into, but we haven't yet even seen the original-Heroine, so who knows how much has changed? As it is, this is mostly a progression-of-life story of the MC's new life, and how she copes with trying to keep things as steady as she can without tripping any landmines that will trigger a Bad End someday down the line.
