Would actually compare this to a painting that's executed beautifully

I always put off reading this one despite the high reviews just because of the cover art. I thought the main character was the female there and what the scene looked to be - of a female nomad feeding a guy with her mouth and holding their kid - just wasn't appealing to me. The summary about this book being focused on her dad didn't appeal to me much either, as someone who's a huge fan of romance but could take or leave family relationships.

However, after exhausting a whole ton of other otome isekais up to their latest season and on the search for any more, I decided to give this one a shot. I pretty much binged the last half (fifty or so chapters) all at once. Let me just preface by saying what looked to me to be a seductive woman who has a kid in the cover is not remotely the focus. What is is the father-daughter relationship, but there is still romance and the story's really worth reading.

It starts off slow - and even a little annoying, tbh - with the female lead fake-acting sweet. Despite the very good art and her being a very cute kid, this didn't really appeal to me. And despite it being hinted early on that maybe there's a reason the emperor's so cold and ruthless, I still didn't like to see him being so cruel to his daughter either. Didn't really like seeing either of them basically lol, but the art was really pretty and the story seemed fine so I kept reading over the next couple days.

Then, the emperor started to warm up a bit. It was still annoying to see him so cold to her, but hey at least something's happening in this story. And after that, the plot really started rolling.

The author did such an amazing job with pacing. The worries and struggles the female lead has are relatable, and you can feel the tension this causes even while it's in the background. How the plot unfolds is done so well, with events unfurling with this character and with that, like a well-orchestrated play. Everything builds up to the climax, and then we're held there waiting for the resolution.

Gotta say, though, the last part was like fifty or so chapters from when it started to when it resolved. While it was all out so I could read it all at once, if I had to wait chapter by chapter for fifty of them before what I wanted to see happen did... oof. If it had been resolved quicker it would've been unrealistic and I don't feel as if any of those chapters were bad, but still.

The art makes reading this a joy. The emperor and all the men really serve as plenty of eye candy, and the female lead is so pretty. It's not all tension and stress and there are lighthearted and happy moments throughout, which only serve to help define the characters' personalities and their growth.

I've talked about how the story tells itself, but the content of the story itself is also well thought out. Everyone's motives, the mix of conflicting feelings, and people's flaws - all of that is drawn on and shown. The author keeps her focus on telling one overarching narrative and weaves all the characters into this one thread. Since in the end this is just one narrative it's nothing complex or confusing. It's just one story told very well and illustrated with a lot of detail.

I was on the fence when I started, but between the skilled storytelling and beautiful art, I'd really recommend this.

I think this is probably still the stand-out in the genre. Even though the current arc (as of July 2021) is a bit rubbish, the story before that is consistent in pace, plot, and theme. There is a very tangible and genuine sense of *fear* for Athy that I think a lot of similar stories have struggled to capture. As a few other commenters have mentioned, the protagonist's life before becoming Athy is not dropped wholesale but there is a real effort made to keep it relevant. In particular, there is effort to think about the novel-world that she is in through many different angles and lenses: it's not a solid truth, nor is it something she completely discards. That's nothing new anymore, but it's done with surprising sophistication here, and a lot of respect for the reader.

I think this has probably the most sympathetic evil-father-figure, too. It's my least favourite trope, often because the burden is on the daughter-figure to humanise him, and often because his wrongdoings are brushed over, or very easily forgiven. That's not so here -- it's made explicit that the fault is with Claude. He does have a backstory to explain his cruelty, of course he does, but that is never used to justify what he has done. I wouldn't say it outright redeems him, either, but just adds another layer of complexity to his relationship with his daughter. Even at his most "loving", the spectre of Claude's violent rule as an emperor and a father hang over the relationship always. His history does not go away, and I think that makes his steps towards being a good father to Athy much more sympathetic.

As a final note:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I love that Athy and Jennette care for each other.
I wasn't expecting it at all, I really thought she would be a villain for Athy, but instead it was another strong friendship for her. There's a lot in this about how children get used/played by the adults in their life, and how powerless they can feel, and how above all else, playing with your friends is the best thing ever. There is a lot of tension in that relationship! Jealousy and frustration frame the affection between them so beautifully. It's such a lovely friendship/sisterhood and I am very grateful with how sophisticated and complex this ended up being.

I'd wax poetic if I could, but I'm trash at it. So this jumbled up review is the best I could do.

Usually I'd be able to list all the things I like about a manhwa, but this one is an exception. This is one of those stories that made me ask myself, "What's not to like?"

The main point of this story is family—particularly the relationship between Claude and his daughter, Athanasia. These two broken characters start as strangers, but little by little—without either of them realizing it—they become each other's most important thing in life.

The author fleshes out the characters in the story very well. There's a clear reason why Claude is the way he is, why he acted the way he did, etc. It certainly doesn't erase all his wrongdoings, but there's progress, there's character development, and these are all that matter to me. His and Athy's journey is really what made me so invested in this manhwa. Obviously Athy will choose a romantic partner down the road, but the author is taking their sweet time with it so we'll see how it will turn out later.

Surprisingly, I found myself liking the whole cast of characters—yes, even the bad guys. And not just because they all look like they just finished a magazine photoshoot 99% of the time (looking at you, Claude my-torso-is-a-gift-to-behold-so-be-grateful-ye-mortals Obelia). I liked them because they're there not just to support the main character, but they actually contribute something to the story.

I honestly can't say much else except that I highly recommend this manhwa, so if you have some spare time and are looking for something to read, try this one. There's a reason why it's so popular and why people left and right are singing its praises.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)

Anyway. Claude wakes up, Athy demands an apology from him for all the shitty things he did, and then they finally make up. Ngl I very nearly bawled. Good for you my darlings now go and be happy together as a family. God knows you DESERVE it.

P.S. I listened to this song First Man by Camilla Cabello and I got all choked up lol. It somehow reminded me of Claude & Athy (and Lucas!). If someone made a fan edit of Claude and Athy slow dancing to this song I would simply perish.

Slow and proper world-building and development of relationships with no uncharacteristic betrayals. And when something is taken away, you don't realize how important it was and want to restore it so you sympathize with mc. Very well done and good art and magic system.

[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.

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.
