her name is YUNIFER

🌚 ignore my previous review, im going to redo it. i just finished all the chapters in one sitting. i’m going to split this in two:

- plot wise, there was a lot of build up with little pay off. for instance while i really liked the magic as a concept in here, it’s not further expanded upon even once they make new discoveries. and if there is a hint of romance between heroine (raelle) and the fl (yunifer whose name is still ridiculous), none of that is resolved. was this axed 😕
- even side characters like raelle’s friend michael and the child laborer have no storyline or ending other than to be plot armor/bluffs for the main characters.
- the drama felt stale at points in time. since it’s mostly a deep dive into their relationship, it’s fluff with some plot on the side but none of the interesting twists im into. could’ve used some angst to balance it out tbh
- the writing honestly was pretty choppy, like the author was making it up as she went along which is probably true because this is adapted from a web novel. events felt uncoordinated and random, especially since they weren’t written well or as if they were in any particular sequence (chapter would begin at random points). regardless, the narration was wonky and i’d get lost
- i’ll elaborate more on this later but bro fl-ml relationship begins when he takes advantage of her while she’s drunk and it’s later revealed he had a crush on her when she was presumably 13/14 and he was 17/18 😐. this is not discussed whatsoever and honestly excused because the korean yunifer was much older.
- speaking of, i wish this discussed more about the isekai portion. few ois do this; beware the villainess had this same problem where the heroine transmigrates but there is no discussion about what happened to the og!yunifer which is terribly sad when you consider the father keeps trying to say sorry to her.
- really could’ve used real smut

- healthiest relationship depiction i’ve ever seen in an oi. yes it starts off really wonky. but wow they actually communicate and listen to each other and help and uplift and support each other it makes me swoon. truly unforgettable i haven’t seen a manhwa so absent and not rife of any pointless misunderstandings in forever.
- literally a star of its kind. the focus is on the characters and relationships; both ishid and the prince (not a secondary ml, there is no love triangle) have such nuanced beliefs and thoughts and opinions. you don’t see that kind of development being put into characters these days, it’s revolutionary frankly.
- ishid was such a swoon worthy character he was so in love with yunifer i loved it. he was so cute, puppy, crying kind of type and yunifer was very mature and reasonable. sometimes i liked her more cold tbh.
- art was refreshingly different. simplistic but not the pasty bright tacky colors and dresses and flowers, just different.
- translation was actually really good and poetic and kept what i imagined the novels feel was like

overall: 8/10 i quite liked it (ignore the imbalance). very entertaining, sweet and cute, and contains my favorite toe curling trope (ml madly in love with fl). well done and so different, true josei of its genre

Cool lore with a FL that understands what a healthy relationship is!  
by Justiiine
November 6th, 2021, 7:53pm
Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
Despite the title, the FL is more of the typical isekai girl trying to survive than a villainess.
I really liked the lore with elemental mages, and the whole academy thing kind of felt like a college romance in a fantasy setting.
It is SO nice to have a Fl with her feet to the ground, teaching other characters healthier behavior!
The main couple was cute, the fact that they are sexually active makes for a more realistic relationship even if some of these scenes were confusing (nothing explicit so some panel are like what even is this body part supposed to be).

What really spoiled this webtoon for me is the pace. The progression between scenes and story arcs felt rushed or choppy. Sometimes I even wondered if I was missing panels or chapters but I don't think so. It also kind of felt like the author changed their mind on the overall story twice along the way.
The beginning is more of the typical isekai "how to keep the original story without dying". Then there is the whole monster hunt and "mystery" around the magic stones, which was cool but came and went out of nowhere. The end is about the main couple turning into villains, out of nowhere again, before an abrupt happy ending.

The side characters were nice but under explored. The secondary couple was supposed to be central the way they were introduced and yet one just disappeared from the last few chapters while the other is scarcely seen throughout the story and has his backstory and ending dropped in the end and covered in like 2 chapters.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I appreciate the fact that Raelle and Cassian did not get back together but it's sad that Raelle never knows why Cassian acted like that. It would have made more sense to have Cassian and Ishid's childhood and relationship brought up gradually throughout the story than dropped at the end like that.
Same for the emperor's obsession with weakness and mortality.
Also, why imply that there was something about the count not being Yunifer's biological father without even having a scene with them clearing things about that? Unless I missed that in which case please someone sends me a DM

Also there is never really a proper explanation on how the FL arrived in the world.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
There is this scene where Yunifer was sick and crying for her family when in first year at the academy, sounds like when she just arrived in the world but that was never really explained.
And regarding her father, she could have made up some memory loss excuse or something.

Overall lots of potential, nice characters, interesting setting but despite the 87 chapters it felt too short and would have probably deserved more chapters for a smoother progression and a better wrap-up. I'm curious how much comes from it being adapted from a novel and how much were flaws actually kept from the novel.

A fun isekai

It's kinda cliché in its concept, but the main pair is still fun. The action is kinda meh. The plot is fine but I quite like how cunning Yunifer can act, it's great when it happens.

Best Isekai Manhwa  
by SleepyFire
July 28th, 2021, 9:58pm
Rating: N/A
This manhwa leaves me craving for more. The art, plot, and character development is top knotch for a “smut” isekai manhwa. Im honestly confused why the ratings aren’t higher. To be honest I almost skipped out on reading this because the cover art is so dull. Im so glad I picked it up. I was getting so tired of the recycled isekai romance tropes, so this manhwa was a complete breath of fresh air. Also, HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS?! COMMUNICATION?! We love to see it! If you’re tired of toxic ML look no further! If you’re tired of damsel in distress MC look no further! If you want something darker, and more mature this manhwa is the one for you! (Btw if anyone knows of an isekai manhwa that can compare to this masterpiece please dm me!)

I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty hard for me to remember the names/titles of a lot of otoisekai due to the sheer number of titles popping out each month. So for anyone with similar struggles, I will provide a brief synopsis:

It's the one where her hands are cold because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she's a waterbender and his are hot because he's a firebender
and there are a surprising amount of scenes where characters actually discuss umbrellas?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Also they fight squid. and there's a little gay girl with gray hair who lowkey wants the FL to be her mommy gf. at one point there's some sexual tension with gray hair girl over an umbrella.

More interesting than expected

The truth is i actually dropped this a few chapters in a while ago, but I tried to give it another chance this time around and it was worth it 🙂

Even if I don’t understand all of her actions, I like the fl. She is mature indeed, but also intelligent and self-aware. On the other hand the ml is lacking, he is childish and obsessive, but as he is also caring and genuine I still enjoy their relationship.
I also like the side characters, especially Raelle ! I expected a typical shoujo female character (cute but useless) however she isn’t like that at all. Far from being a pushover, she is strong, resilient but remains gentle. She’s precious. I hope she will find happiness, and that she will manage to become close friends with Yunifer. Speaking of which I don’t understand why Yunifer tries so hard to avoid her, she even comes off as a bitch sometimes. I understand that she wants to prevent her own death sentence but why not befriend Raelle instead then ? Btw the reincarnation issue is not part of the plot at all, it could have easily be a stand alone story. It has no relevance here if not straining the mcs relationship and somewhat explaining her behavior with Raelle...

Anyway, although it’s shallow and light hearted, it is still a good read, thanks to the female leads who are quite interesting and because it feels more mature (having the mcs sexually involved is rare in this kind of stories. I like it, it adds dimension). I also appreciate the effort in the worldbuilding. For the moment I’ve read up until chapter 60.

The FL is indeed mature, interesting and well defined, a good character to carry the story, unfortunately, the ML is the oposite, he's personality and attitude are ok for a small kid, but he's a man, a grown man yet he's childish, needy, possessive and to be honest somewhat scary. Lately I've read many manhwas and manhuas that have an interesting and engaging FL but there are really few where the same thing applies to the ML, they tend to be pieces of sh*t or the annoyingly perfect white prince's cliché, it's rare to find both.
There is a scene where the MC tries to explain to the ML that just because she likes something he doesn't have to harm himself to give it to her... it's like a mother talking to her 5 year old little boy. Their relation is thus like that of a mother and her child, that's the feeling I usually get from their banter and actions, but they are a sexually active couple, I find it a bit creepy. this kind of interactions are what fill most of this romance driven story, and while I like romance, for stories over 20 or so chapters I prefer it as a subplot not as the main driving plot.
Story-wise it's yet another version of the "living inside a novel as the villain" story that is in vogue lately, can't say much more about it other than it's a bit annoying how the FL persists in thinking that things will inevitably go the way they did in the novel when every thing that happens seem to indicate otherwise.
Art is good.
Dropped at ch30 ish.

A sexually-mature, smooth-talking, mature female lead???? I STAN THIS QUEEN  
by moonmystery
July 19th, 2020, 3:01pm
Rating: 10.0  / 10.0
Wow I'm in love with the FL. She's surprisingly mature in various situations compared to other otome isekai female leads. For one, she realizes that even though she lives in a potentially preordained book world, the book characters she interact with are still people with their own free will and feelings. She doesn't try to force things to go in any particular direction because "destiny" or "fate." Rather, she is good at adult compromise.

I'm in love with this character's thoughtfulness and sexual maturity. She doesn't run away screaming after a one-night stand (although she initially wanted to), but instead had a fruitful conversation with the other party. She has dirty thoughts often in innocent contexts, which make her more real and funny.

The interactions she has with others are just A+.

Unexpectedly good

The heroine is a mature lady, but has her "childish" moments that add that bit of flavour in her personality. I usually prefer if main characters were just a little kinder than this FL, but she's still amazing. There's not much plot yet, for now i think it just revolves around building their relationship up and healing the ML. Their relationship is realistic, with the female lead admitting to her faults when she makes mistakes, and she never throws tantrums at the ML. The ML is super loving and gentlemanly and mature. A mature relationship? That's something I haven't read in a long while lol.
And what's a plus point is that I can't tell whether the female lead is considered beautiful in the series as they never mentioned her looks. The male lead fell in love with her solely based on her personality, and even though she was attracted to him based on his looks, she only fell in love because of his personality. Such a refreshing change to a lot of shallow comics where the FL has non-existent charm or knowledge with an unlikeable personality but brings all the boys to her yard.
Will continue reading it and it certainly is worth a try.
