The story just started, so I can't say much. But it's unique and entertaining

So far there only has been 36 chapters. Looking at your typical romance shojo webtoon manhwa with the fantasy empire/kingdom settings, I feel that the story has just only began.

But so far, I do love how the story going. As you know, there has been already several isekai webtoon manhwa where the main characters turned into villains. At those manhwas, the female characters usually will end up attract those she tried to avoid in the beginning. Just name it: Doctor Elise, The Villain's Stepmother, The Villain's Ending is Death, etc.

But this one? I love it that she is truly able to avoid those she wanted to avoid. She wanted to be loved, but not begging for it, like the original Mellissa did in the beginning of the story. She didn't look for it, but she found and gained new love by being honest to herself. She's blunt and aggressive, but I definitely LOVE this part of her. Sometimes there are really people who we wanted to tell to "f*** off" right? But because of some circumstances we might not be able to say it. Mellissa filled this part, and helped people by being blunt and aggeessive.

Yes, definitely love this so far. I hope it will be going good between her and Nine.

It's too early to give this webtoon a 10/10, but i've really been enjoying the various antics our main characters are up to (the maid, the villainess reborn, the dad, the fluffy werewolf, the book heroine). Everyone's hilarious and unexpected. Every chapter surprises me like a breath of fresh air.

The premise of having 4 terrible male leads is A+. I'm so over the toxic, unrealistic shoujo trope of "cruel jerk with a heart of gold for his true love." Like nah, love alone doesn't guarantee happily ever afters. Relationships take virtues (e.g. patience, communication, flexibility) that these hopeless main males often lack. So yeah, it's awesome finally having a series that points out the dumb nature of terrible male leads

Got to my Top 5

I'm reading mangas and manhwas for 15 years now. This one is still ongoing.. but as it is right now it got to my Top 5!

I love how strong and independed the MC is and how she utilizes what she's got (yes, strong AND intelligent, kind but NOT naive. After all.. she is a villainess.. <smirk>😉!
And I love how all the personalities of the usual typical male-main-leads are portrayed how they usually really would if this was real life.
I mean if a woman who has any self respect towards herself - as a woman - would ever get across a damn good looking showinistic guy (like what most ML are), she wouldn't even think of letting such a guy touch her! Because no matter how good looking a person is, if his personality is s***, then he/she's s***. No husband material.
So in other words, although this is fantasy, it is realistic an encouraging for all the young girls out there to respect themselves and that's really rare in mangas/manhwas (even if the mc is strong they mostly still don't have self respect at some point (because of trauma or what ever)...)

This manhwa is REFRESHING.

If you like Bakarina you will like this one too. The heroines are different, but the humor and over all story construction is similar.

Give it a chance so hilarious and unique!

I made the mistake of reading one of the bad reviews here in mangaupdates, and was put off into reading it at first but then thought better of it and gave this piece a chance. IT IS SO FUNNY! I've had my share of isekai fodder, and I kid you not, this is so hilarious and the FL IS A BAMF. And kudos to the scanlators because their translations add to the depth, personality, and hilarity of the characters. The pop culture references are awesome, the FLs decisions are soooo refreshing and I can't wait to read more. Give it a chance, form your own opinions about it ;D

Not my cup of tea. Gets a bit better

After 18 chapters I've had enough of this, all characters save the MC are completely unrealistic and two dimensional selfish assholes, all broken people by any normal person standards. I've only read about two of the male leads but both and her father are just like that, unrealistic caricatures. This is done of course with the intent to be funny, I don't find it funny.
Add to that that 80% of the story so far is either the MC having some dumb inner dialogue (either explaining things that need no explanation or just going into the nooks and crannies of those around her) or some inconsequential dialogue, it leaves only about 20% of each chapter to some kind of action or development. This is beyond slow, I like slow stories, but those usually employ the time for development, either of story, world or characters this is just reading the MC's inane self monologues. Sure, I didn't give the story enough time and maybe it's better later, but such a start doesn't tempt me to reach that later.

EDIT: I re-read it since so many sing high praises, I find what I wrote above to be spot on. I guess it depend on whether one finds it funny or not, most seem to like the humor, I on the other hand can't understand how anyone can find this funny, though I admit to have a different kind of sense of humor to most people I know.
I often get too annoyed, for example at the MC not being able to have a normal conversation with anyone, each and every character unilaterally spouts a load of BS and she just takes it most of the time, it piles and then she explodes, in either case communication here is one way when normal communication is two ways, it's quite unsatisfying. This and the cartoony chars are made on purpose, the author herself(?) aludes to the clichés and two dimensional personalities of the characters, I think it was ch28, the MC analyses some of the clichés of the genre, I found that the only really interesting ch so far.
I pretty much forced myself to keep going and fortunately the pace picks up after ch20 and she's able to have some more "freedom" to do what she wants. It's not great but decent after those first 20ch which I found dreadfully bad.

There are currently only a handful of chapters, but I can't wait for more. Even though I have read dozens of stories in this genre, this one truly stands out. The main character truly owns her villainous character and doesn't shy away from being mean or rude, just to avoid a death flag. She truly runs her own show and messes with everyone very enjoyably. She doesn't try to be nice to the male leads and doesn't try to win their favor. It's quite refreshing. It reminds me of Miss Not-So Sidekick, but on steroids.

REALLY slow start but it gets better eventually

The FL started out to be very intriguing with her bold words and expressions, the art is quite pretty and the comedy started out quite good too. However, more than 13 chapters go by and she became all bark and no bite. It was extremely disappointing and felt so unnecessary. At up til point, there had been little/no story development and the chapters consisted of the FL getting pissed/stressed and nagging. No amount of meme-able faces and pretty boys could make me feel less irritated.

I almost stopped reading but around chapter 20, things really picked up and started looking better! If you want/can sludge through that long-winded introduction, this might be the next manhwa you should read. I'm really looking forward to future updates!

The MC is petty, cunning, but nonetheless extremely charming! It’s really refreshing to have a female lead like this.

The story so far at 24 chapters has been really funny and progressing at a good pace. Am looking forward to more

Whoever is the author and the artist, thank you very much. I love you.

BEST VILLAINESS HANDS DOWN. Who needs a male lead when you can have the best villainess that can fulfill both?
