[as of chapter 97]

“Who Made Me a Princess” is a present day, shoujo magnum opus. Having just completed my 3rd complete read of available chapters I was really paying attention to why this work always left such a good impression on me. A standard that others within this sub-genre should aim toward. The quality of the aesthetics of “Who Made…” are self-evident, whether that be attractive characters, gorgeous backgrounds and panelling and a cute reverence for (at times) silly, yet fashionable clothing. However, I also believe that not only presentation, but plot and general character of the story is elevated here. The cast of relevant characters is kept rather small which seems to have given the plot ample time to flesh out and contextualise each individual persona. Not to diminish just how wonderful each miniature interaction in this story is. The bouncing tonal shifts in combination with the presentation just makes each scene pop in a way that the average manhwa in this sub-genre just doesn’t. It’s hard not to have a personal stake in the story from the very beginning because of this. You are sold from the first moments. The momentum takes you in it’s steely jaws and just carries you forward. There is no dilly dallying for pointless side character, or extemporaneous fan service. It’s all just baked into the core of the story.

It’s all just dripping in high romance, as any fairytale should be! Not that this necessarily means it is without potential areas of irritation depending on taste. Magic has this ephemeral, nonsense quality to it. Lucas is very much the fairy god mother, who is plot designated as a possible auto-resolve button. A cynical (occasionally cunty) super-genius who always has the “logical” take and a suggestion that a flick of his wrist could solve all their problems (within some very loosely defined parameters). However, this is veto’d by the very story he exists within. Magic would be far too convenient a solution for us! Drama is what we serve. It wouldn’t be true to the emotional journey of either Athy, or even Lucus himself if it was all that easy.

Not to suggest I don’t have any reservations with “Who Made…”, which I think gets a bit slovenly around the transition from first to second season. Amnesia is really not a solution I am entirely fond of for mixing things up. The story definitely makes the most of the scenarios that this offers up though, and having past that point quite a number of chapters ago now, I feel I can forgive the designer and appreciate what they have done with the place. Seeing the transitions from anhedonic stupor to blood thirsty beasts again for Claude is also entertaining.

I would also be amiss to note that I don’t think I have seen a story (in this very specific sub-genre) give so much credence to it’s foundational premises. It has become increasingly common, with the supersaturation of these genre tropes, to simply discard the “I’m a 20-something nobody from IRL who has been reincarnated as a princess from a book, wowzers xD” and get on with the good stuff. But “Who Made…” makes a concerted effort to continue to incorporate the MCs past life into how she evaluates her relationships in her new life. Lucas is also in on the situation from the beginning, adding this extra layer of comedy to their relationship. There is even an increasingly obvious hint that there may be more going on behind the background. That the original “novel” wasn’t necessarily what it seemed.

So I am highly impressed and think “Who Made Me a Princess” takes it’s side next to “Stepmothers Marchen” as the current standouts from this sub-genre (that I am aware of). This definitely reads more typical shoujo than “Stepmothers…” though, with it’s adolescent relationships and whimsical flare. I look forward to seeing how the story ends.

Strong first arc; peters out

Review 12/11/20

Athanasia (Athy) is killed by her psychopathic, emotionless father in her first life, and in her second chance after a reincarnation, devotes all her time and energy into gaining his attention and staying alive. The first season is spent showing Athy's playfulness as she tries to engage with her father. Much of the comedy comes from her taking on a feigned docile, sweet personality while her internal monologue rants about the role she has to play. She eventually does gain his love and affection--to the extent he has any.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Then in Season 2 there's an amnesia arc that goes on far too long--as of the time of writing, it's probably been about 40 chapters and there's no end in sight. This arc resets all the progress they made and centers on the question of which of the two girls, Athy and Jenette, will be chosen and accepted. I think the author really misses the point on what was so appealing about this series. The superficial bonding through tea parties and walks are nice, but what I really expected was some kind of explanation and resolution of Claude's inability to feel emotion and why he put a curse on himself. That could have been positive plot progression allowing both Athy and Jenette to have a role in his life. Instead, the author is pressing very hard on the dramatic irony of Jenette in fact being the former emperor's... magic-created child? The reader knows this but the characters do not. This plot point is becoming tedious.

As of writing, the plot seems to be pointed towards focusing more on politics, as Athy is claiming power while Claude is incapacitated with amnesia and the dark magic effects on his body. This plot just isn't realistic--courtiers support Athy because she tells one rude lord to back down, and gains the respect of everyone. I don't think the author has the ability to write out a well-machinated plot about political rivalries and schemes. I would be happy to be proven wrong but I anticipate a lot of Athy's future problems will be resolved either with magic or with quickly-batting eyes.

Some reviews criticize the lack of romance, but I don't find it offputting. There are two potential romance leads, the typical courtier whose family has the opposite intentions of the royal family (setting a Romeo-and-Juliet conflict up) and the court magician who knows more than he lets on. They're both tropey and I'm indifferent to who Athy eventually ends up with, so long as the author actually makes a decision.

The art rocks, it's really gorgeous. The story is interesting so far! Can't wait for more.

For now, highest recommendation 🙂

I started reading this a few months back, and since then have read other manhuas/mangas. Despite having read other ones, I keep coming back to this. It's, surprisingly, a really good read. The author fleshes out the emotions really well and gives it just enough panels to stick -- not too short, not too long. I think that's one of the strengths -- the timing. Not the story pace, mind you (that's another topic altogether). Every emotion, every scene is timed so beautifully.

I also love how the characters are so distinct -- like omg y'all have personalities?! And y'all (well, almost) behave rationally!? Y'all have consistent characters?? *cries* Like if I think back on who Lucas is, or who Claude is, I will remember a distinct relatable trait. That's how I know that the characters have been developed well (unlike other manhuas/mangas where the author makes the FL unbearably rude without reason for about 20 chapters just because she's supposed to be 'strong' oooof please). They also have great character development. I love the interactions between the different characters.

And the art.

Let me just. *words fail*

The art. My goodness.

There are moments I need to just stop and thank the good Lord for living at a time where there is art like this. Okay I'm exaggerating but ... it's really beautifully drawn. A lot of thought and care by the artist to ensure the art complements the story. I love everything about it.

Overall, would recommend. 9.5.

Disclaimer: don't read this if you are looking for something action-packed and intense. Not a lot happens until like the 3rd arc. But I never knew royal slice-of-life could be so amusing and fun!

Seeing the MC grow up from a baby to full grown princess is such a journey. I'm totally invested in her. I love how this story is wholesome despite how dark/morbid our narrator can be. The contrast is hilarious. The story also humanizes the cruel king pretty well towards the later chapters. Granted, some plot elements aren't laid out very well and ended up confusing me,

like, what's the deal with the court mage? why was he not in the original life but suddenly appeared in this one?
but this comic's flaws are overshadowed by how cute and funny the whole series is.

Overall, great read. The art is sooooo beautiful jesus.

Let me just say this first, I didn't expect to like this as much as I do nor even predicted to like it at all honestly. The premise really didn't sit well with me and I was deathly afraid of some Alabama scenes popping up. But I had read good things about it so I took my chances.

Oh boy, did I get attached quickly! The MC is super likable; she's not only super cute but her personality is so relatable and genuine it's hard not to root for her. The art is a blessing, it's eye bleach. It's so unbelievable how pretty this manhwa is. Although there were maybe 2/3 panels that obviously were drawn with low effort and others that were so well made that the panels afterward were jarring.

I'm also a sucker for handsome male characters and hot damn did this story delivers with endless amounts of eye candy... (Lucas and Felix are by far my favorite) The character development is pretty steady and didn't feel rushed either. I became so overly attached to the father-daughter relationship that it was the highlight of the chapter whenever I saw the two interact.

There were also many many scenes where I genuinely laughed out loud not because the characters made a funny face or they referenced a meme, but it was because of the characters themselves being their charming selves. Which I found refreshing as a lot of Korean manhwas nowadays seems to depend on memeable panels to get a laugh.

For about 20 or so chapters down the line, however, is where my problem lies. The entire story kinda halts and stays stagnant for seemingly no other reason than to build up backstories and draw out the plot. It was fine at first but became frustrating after like 15 chapters. As of recent chapters things have picked up so I'm hoping this story will keep it like that.

If I was reading the original novel, without the amazing art, I doubt I'd feel the same way, but...

It's better than other comics of its ilk. The heroine is a little annoying in the first few chapters, but it breaks free of that and doesn't feel as tired and nonsensical as similar titles.

The premise, about the book, that is one of the weaker parts of the story.

It was fun reading the bonding relationship between father and daughter, with some cute boys for possible romantic interest in the future. Then on season 2, the story takes turn becoming a melodrama. I can’t believe they are pulling

amnesia card.

I’ve been scrolling down fast the last few chapters for lacking interest in the story. I still love the cute artworks and the characters though. So for now, I’ll just wait until the series completed before reading it again.
