This game’s got me obsessed! It’s like it’s taken over my life... wait—HARD MODE ACTIVATED. No-no-no-no-no! It has literally taken me and thrown me into the part of Penelope Eckhart. Love is easy as the heroine, but as the hated villainess, I’m trying very hard not to die… at the hands of my brothers… the prince… a fork… every possible ending is death!

This world is stacked against me, but can my wits and insider game knowledge score the affection of these male characters? Or the reset button??

This is excruciating painful in the best possible way

There is a handful amazing otomeisekais, and this one sits is right at the top. It's dramatic, thrilling and absolutely gorgeous. I spoiled myself and briefly read the uh fate of my favorite ML, who wasn't chosen, but the story is so well done I will continue reading the manhwa because the journey to how it happens looks far more interesting than just the "this boy and the girl gets together" fact. Plus I want to see more of my favorite ML.

Glamorous Game Mechanics

Few stories in this sub-genre match the sultry, whimsical flare that details this story. Colour and light isn’t just a tool, but a weapon, searing this gamified romance into your eyeballs. Drama is an ever present reality, with little comic relief, which fits well with the bejazzled beauty of the main characters, too serious and aristocratic for mere games! But its’ fun, and thankfully, also self-aware thanks to the down to earth main character. Of course, I’m not sure if her constantly expressing how confused she is about the way the favourability system works makes it any less of an incomprehensible concept. After all, if the range of favourability stretches from -100 to 100, then 0 should be neutral setting, which certainly doesn’t coincide with the aggressive/resentful/disdainful dispositions of her brothers. Of course, “they’ve always slightly liked her, but they just don’t show it on the outside!” would make vague sense if we hadn’t just seen one of the brothers explode on the MC at the end of the season at 10% (?) favourability. But I digress, as the game concepts are simply minor plot devices to add drama. The primary engines here are the art, characters and plot. There are always enough gears turning to be interesting at this point. But, the real challenge is only just beginning for “The Villain’s Ending…”. Will it have enough tricks up it’s sleeve? I shall wait and see.

One of the series with the isekai-villainess genre that I like

The story of this series is really good, well packed with female lead characters that are developed fantastically. For the isekai series, I think it's very interesting and worth reading. I'm really looking forward to the continuation of this story and hoping that it will become even more interesting

Now this is how you do an isekai genre! I love how strong willed she is. It also doesn't hurt that the art is also stunning. It's witty, it's emotional, and it's suspenseful! Sadly, it's on hiatus right now but I can't wait to see how the rest of the story unfold!

Is there anyone who experience the same thing as me?

So actually i have read this manhwa (the comic and not the novel) i think till chapter 60++ in july-august 2020 where the hunting competition is already taken place. But suddenly i cannot find it anywhere.. and i just found that right now at this time and moment, the original manhwa in korea just reach about 43-45 chapters. I feel like I'm travelling to the future only to read this manhwa 😅. Or is this manhwa a challenge manhwa before it release as official manhwa??

I'm not daydreaming cause i still can remember the exact story and picture.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
well for spoiler, I am looking forward to the crown prince route bcs after hunting competition, Penelope will be trapped with crown prince in a cave because of the attempted murder . Only two of them. Later the crown prince will develop more feeling toward Penelope until it reach 60%. Faster and safest among all routes, regardless of what Penelope think at the first ecounter with Crown Prince and think that the route is not safe at all and will be avoided. Gogogo Penelope and Crown Prince.. as he was the sweetest among the male (beside ecclise)

So far so good. It's thrilling.

To be honest, I pity the main character. Her life in real life and her life as Penellope were very similar that she distrust and closed herself from all the people in the estate, including her family, even saying she hate them in her dream. Of course we can see how her brothers and father are opening and warming up to her, but it's still not enough.

It's really thrilling. She might die anytime. We know she would eventuallly opened her heart to her family, but personally at the same time I wonder if Penellope will ever forgive her past and all.

So far so good, and it's worth to read. I wish for more development between the family member.

A survival thriller otome game isekai!  
by moonmystery

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
This series has a lot going for it even though it's only 29 chapters in atm.
1. We get to know the MC before she transports into the game world. A lot of manwha don't give us enough time to know the MC's original life, leading to a disconnect. But here, I feel more for the MC because of how she was portrayed in her regular life. Moreover, we actually see MC playing the game she will eventually be transported into, and futilely having to restart due to bad endings. Then BAM she's actually become the game character!!

2. In-Game mechanisms: This series actually incorporates elements of the otome game (e.g. you can only say 1 of 3 given choices in scenarios at times). There are hidden quest pop-ups and all that jazz. This makes the series more exciting to read.

3. We are told that death is at every corner for this villainess, and since she is constantly stressed about getting killed by the hot dudes, winning them over becomes that much more crucial. The setting of this series is just well done.

4. Complex character creation: all the characters in this series feel mysterious, and you get the sense that there's always more than meets the eyes. It's this sort of atmosphere that makes readers want to keep binging. Kudos to the author for establishing this.

5. GORGEOUS art. I love the fashion, the hair colors, the brilliantly drawn facial expressions. Just so so pretty.

Can't wait to read more as the series updates.

The main character's struggle is real, you feel her pain and anguish. And you especially feel the unfairness of her new life. At the moment (at chapter 12) I really can't tell how exactly things will play out, but it really doesn't seem as cliche as most stories in this genre. I hope the story remains as realistic and non-cliche as it goes on.

Should you read it?

The answer is yes, it is recommended that you read it. The novel has 210 chapters which means the manhwa would have around 100+ chapters.

The plot is very unique, it's very different from your typical isekai manhwa. As seen from the description, she needs to survive as a villainess in a game she played. Instead of being loved by everyone, she has to gain their love and affection to survive. From her life experience and gameplay, she is able to understand how to survive in the game she is in.

The art style is very beautiful, this artist uses thicker lines and is very good at shading. Everything is detailed and it's basically eye-candy.

So far, it is very engaging and at the end of each chapter, I always want to know what will happen next. Please give this manhwa a try, it is very good!
