I actually rather like this one

This story is set in an alternative universe during the Crimean War (called “Crimm” in the comic), with the male lead in the role of Queen Victoria (but genderswapped sort of) and the female lead as a sort of Florence Nightingale. The female lead has lived this life before but was a horrible person and was executed. She learned to be a doctor during her second life in Korea as a way of atoning. But when she dies in Korea, she is able to return to her previous life to live it again.

There are a few things that could be better in this comic (the costumes can be terribly inaccurate, even for an alternate world setting). But I really like how this highly intelligent character is unable to overcome her preconceptions about what will happen in this life. Unlike many isekai leads, she remembers this life and remembers her execution and painful life with the prince. Her attempts to avoid that life make sense to me. She fears becoming that person again even though it is clear to everyone that she is nothing like that woman anymore. She is unable to see how much she had changed things since her self image has not caught up to reality.

I do agree that Elise can often be too perfect, but her abilities as a surgeon aren’t the actual conflict in this story and don’t need to be creating tension, so it doesn’t interfere with the plot.

Overall I find this story quirky and enjoyable.

Mediocre

I've seen similar setting many times already and its nice that she was just a doctor on Earth and not an assassin or military personnel, which is more realistic and dramatic since she has to struggle and ain't all powerful. Also, the art is quite good too but I have to say that given the amount of 10 votes I had high expectations for this one and I'm disappointed, it's decent maybe but that's it.
In the first place, the pace is quite bad, it's somewhat boring, the characters are rather unremarkable or shallow with the MC being just too perfect and thus boring, what I found particularly attractive or interesting about her thou is her fear of the Prince whom caused her death last time, it humanizes her, the Prince is a hysteric and an emo and the kind of guy who thinks everything is about him, really a boring and terrible choice for the male lead, I had hoped the doctor, her first boss would be in for the fight but seams that women like princes in their fairy-tales after all. Dialogues also lack depth.
As for the story, its somewhat interesting but the plot execution is at times naive and childish, like the ridiculous bet which the author keeps stretching its plot when it has already ran dry and should be over with. Or how causality is flawed, she doesn't want to do this or that (like marrying the prince) because the things she will do in the future will cause problems for her family. Yet, can't the author not see the stupidity of that argument? the fact that she doesn't want to marry or that the actions in the war change thanks to her advice mean that she can act differently from her past life, if she wishes to avoid problems all she has to do is not cause them. Actually it's arguably the other way round, if she puts herself in an active position she can act to prevent any problems. Last, the romance in particular is quite bad, cheesy and boring and the couple doesn't look like they would get along at all

Cute but...

It's cute but kinda boring. Nothing has really happened plotwise. It's just Elise being tested as a doctor, but she's already a genius doctor, so there's no real tension. Every other plot point has been hinted at, but nothing has come about. You get the feeling that it's just part one in a long journey, which is both exciting and depressing. Especially for my wallet. At least the romance is progressing already.

Elise herself is the biggest obstacle to making this story truly enjoyable. She's just so...mature. Those three (albeit short) lifetimes she's lived really shows. Live a little girl. It's like l'm reading about an 80ry old nun.
