At first , I didn't like the art so I dropped it but then , I came back out of curiosity since i saw the other reviews here and I was glad I did.Despite the arc that is quite average compared to other isekai webtoons I read, the story is quite hilarious and different from other isekais.For me this is the first time i was able to tolerate such bad art, all thanks to the storyline

Review 12/11/20
The original premise of this isekai manhwa was strong: the sister of the author of the original story (compared to just a fan or someone who played the otome game) had previously advised the author and changed the outcome, so when she is reincarnated she brings that knowledge in and tries to change her fate. The first few chapters are hilarious. The cartoon faces are drawn in an art style different from the other manhwa and allows for comedic moments in the medium that I haven't seen before. Her approach to problem solving of trying to bed the nondescript second male lead showed an aggressive approach to problem-solving rather than meandering around.

However, the strengths fall away pretty quickly. The former life is quickly forgotten about and the story is played straight: an overreacting, quirky female lead who's beautiful and has a Unique Talent (in her case, forging weapons) that gains the respect of the male soldiers, and the progress that she makes in the plot (such as becoming the advisor to the knights, and having a few verbal "battles" between the female rival) aren't so much done with her own ability any longer but more with the Male Lead's help.

Like other reviewers have pointed out, it's very slow paced. I picked it up just as Season 2 started so I was able to binge Season 1 and see the development, but I can foresee myself dropping this as I read on a weekly basis. I don't have too much of an attachment to the main characters--I hope their romance goes well because I'm a sucker for a love story, but I find Alicia's inability to communicate frustrating. The side characters are all just tropes. There's not really any that are sweet or funny in their own right. The King is a typical tsundere for his sister and has only one flash of nobility or talent that was demonstrated at the end of Season 1
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(when he protects Alicia from being expelled from the palace because she was influencing his education)
but that came too little, too late. This king was already an idiot in my mind.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Season 2 picks up with the proposal from Ares to Alicia, which he made at the end of Season 1 because the author inserted this contrived rule that the advisor of education to the king had to have served the king for 7 generations. That's another disappointment--why not fight to change the rules? Why not explore the fact that the supposedly all-powerful king is still subject to the law? And if the law is supreme why do the nobles disregard it so casually? There are other interesting avenues there but the author again chooses to stick to the romance, I think at the expense of characterization and development.

Had potential but had to drop it by ch34 because of boredom

I liked how the FL is somewhat smart, a bit funny in interacting with her brother, and is cunning enough not to be a doormat, BUT other than that it's just not my cup of tea I guess? By ch34 I realized just how bored I am of reading it and I really don't care about any of the characters. I don't feel anything at all when the OTP is on screen together. I had to drop the series because it's starting to become a chore just to continue reading which is sad because I usually push through for romcom isekais.

Horribly unfunny.

Plot is decent, but the pacing and storytelling are all over the place. I don't like how it portrays the comedy. Seriously, why constantly change artstyles for the comedic bits? Just comes off as lazy to me. Usually I don't care about it but it's changing artstyles every two panels. The humor in this is so awfully lame, but I'm probably just biased because I don't laugh at 90% of comedy anyways. If it had a more serious tone I'd probably dig it.

The whole storytelling is a mess. Like what is going on? The female lead acts like a child and is so snobby and cannot handle things well despite proclaiming to be an elite. The art has the potential to be nice if not for the weird blurry lines that make decreases the dimension of the characters drawn.
Messy as hell, and it tries to be funny without actually being funny.

Plot: 7.5/10
Storytelling: 0/10 - A huge mess
Humor: -10/10
Art: 3/10

Total: 2/10

I usually don't like relationship stories that start from a one-night stand, but the events leading to the one-night stand and the events after were just so ridiculous. I got a good laugh out of this.

Spunky FL, but really jarring pacing

The pacing is all over the place and the humorous chibi are added too liberally the story is very slow to progress. I do not mind non stop humour, however it should be continuous and streamlined, but this feels like the humour stop the story just to focus on some slapstick sometimes. The art is not the best but could be excused as this is focus more on humour after all. Some characters are un-understandable, (for example this love at first f@ck ML), however I do like the FL that take charge.

FL act like a retard

For someone from their past life who have a cruel streak and had a standing with a bright future, she act like a pompous bimbo who doesn't know what she's doing. She got knowledge from her past, she didn't even use it. She's being laugh at and she only take it like a clown she is. She's impulsive and indecisive. Maybe her drowning made her brain lack oxygen necessary to think when she got isekai'd.

I expected the usual Isekai but this is a true gem in a sea of acrylic stones and for the first time I felt like leaving a review. The art is peculiar but I honestly really like it, it's a bit of a fresh air. The characters are very diverse and interesting, the female lead is a real badass (and quite crazy too) but what I love the most is how hilarious this webtoon is. I can't stop laughing while reading, it puts me in a real good mood, the interaction between all the characters are funny but still don't undermine the serious plot going under. I simply love it, I can't wait to read more and more. Max points!
