Superrr Boooring First 25 Chapters

Rating: 3.0 / 10.0
The manhwa begins super boring: with chapter upon chapter of the MC complaining to herself as the story goes around in circles, and text upon text of useless info that doesn't get used anywhere in the story, only appearing present to waste your reading time. Events are accompanied by 20+ thought bubbles from a single character that often run out the entire chapter and lead to little progress. It isn't until the mid-to-late twenties that the story begins to pick up steam; and from there on, it maintains a good pace while improving in quality... But only if you can make it through the manhwa's bad start.

Fun FL but bottom barrel ML

Dropped ch.58
The start is fantastic, but I have no motivation to pick this up again. The endgame ML is pathetic, the romance is forced, and the gay bait with Yuri is sad (and she's clearly the best choice). You can have a more subservient ML without him being an annoying simp..

I started reading without getting my hopes up just like most works that have ''villainess'' in the title, but, damn, i was plesantly surprised with the whole new take on the genre and the mockery towards the male leads. it is quite refreshing and im writing this while starting to read it for the 2nd time . Try it.
Edit: it starts slow a bit but after like 15 chapters, the true nature of this manhwa comes up.

Incredibly funny with the gag scenes and ugly faces they make haha. Similar to the other commenters below me, I totally didn't expect the plot to turn out that way. Who knew the villainess would befriend the heroine? And the heroine would despise all the sh*tty MLs haha. I think what really gets me is that the author made it clear that these classic ML roles are so cliche and over used. She's clearly making fun of them. FL is waaaay too funny with her no f given attitude - I love it!

This is a gem kind of ... hidden in geode?

At the very beginning I wasn't sure if I liked the series because it seemed like she was just too rude and things felt kind of disconnected and weird. But as all of the shitty characters were introduced and precious Nine and Yuri appeared, this became one of my favourites. So...if you struggle with the beginning, persevere. The 4 male "lead"
characters are meant to be shit, it's basically satire on the overused stereotypical male leads in romance series or games. Also, I love Yona.

If you think this webtoon is bad, you missed the point of it.

I usually hate when people say stuff like my title, but in this case, it's just so accurate. All the bad criticism for this Webtoon is focused on the depiction of male characters - when the whole point of the story is to call out the toxic tropes in the Shoujo genre. The illusive man following you from the shadows to protect you in your time of need - is an overbearing stalker. The over-powered tough guy who can beat everyone doesn't value human life, the rich guy who solves all his problems with his money has the personality depth of a Toast and the womanizing pretty boy who changes his way for true love left behind an array of broken hearts of women who deserved better even if they weren't the main character. Sure, they are caricatures of these tropes and therefor very extreme versions but that's what parodies are all about.
Honestly, I wish I could force everyone who mainly reads Shoujo to read this as well just so they don't get the wrong idea about the way romance is depicted in material meant for young women. What a great contrast to all these shoddy "MC falls in love with their abuser after he apologizes bs" that's out there.

The Villainess The Plot Deserves (Ch 46)  
by dragonlord7012

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
Most SI into a villain role, tend to follow certain troupes. The most egregious being the "stealing" of the harem, and the MC being brianless outside of their future knowledge, and completely unable to notice people falling for them. While I cannot say it seems to be avoiding all of these, it gleefully blasts the first one into pieces. The male harem, is clearly awful , and the Villainess gleefully opposes their worst tendencies, that when not viewed under the rose tinted glasses of "romance" are pretty damning.

The MC is energetic, and pro-active. The Protagonist actually seems like she has a personality other than "All-loving-protagonist" at times. I wish there was more, as there are some common tropes left to be avoided, but overall it's a strong start. Do recommend.

Wish we had more series like this showing women being decisive, assertive, and independent without needing trash males fawning over her. The main character is a boss who actually makes decisions for herself and takes actions accordingly rather than just letting things happen to her. It also calls out all the toxic tropes so prevalent in shoujo works.

I love Melissa!

Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
I found this manhwa irritating at first. Aside from the main character Melissa, everyone is irredeemably obnoxious. Which is the point since she is a villainess and the four MLs hate her in varying degrees, but it doesn't make a fun read. What annoys me the most however is the delivery of the story, where the main narration is constantly interrupted by long-winded internal monologues that's basically just a repetition of the same point.

It gets so much better as the story moves along, however. More characters are introduced who are really interesting, like Nine (the real ML), Yuri (the original FL), and even this hilarious money-grubbing maid Yona. And Melissa becomes even more likable and even cooler, I can't possibly describe how much I love her (I'm basically joining her fandom along with Nine and Yuri). The plot is neat and there is also an allusion to a deeper meaning behind Melissa being reincarnated as a villainess. Many reincarnated novels often pass it off as something that just happens and leaves it at that, so I always appreciate it when authors make good use of it by coming up with an explanation that helps strengthen the world building.
