Excellent art, YMMV especially if not a fan of yandere MLs

The art is what I came for, the female lead is what I stayed for xD She's an interesting study in how a girl with a quiet and meek personality can still be assertive and stubborn about what she wants. The characters feel complex and interesting to read about, and while yandere male leads aren't usually up my alley the one in this manga actually seems interesting, if just barely on the edge of being a little unbearable at times (I'm chalking it up to his messed up upbringing.. or lack of any at all). I'm also enjoying just having so many female characters in the story with important and interesting roles. Really intrigued with how the mangaka is going to end this story because right now it feels like there are no easy answers for anyone involved xD I don't want to spoil too much but one of the side characters really makes me feel bad for him. I hope the managaka has the time and plot space to give him some more development before the story has to end.

not for the rich Yandere CEO fans

It's a solid story with good art and great women characters.

The FL is a serious girl who is a dear, who is in marriage talks and wants to marry someone who will benefit her father whom she loves very much and was always very good to her. But she will meet, be saved by, and eventually fall in love with someone who could never be presented to polite society.

The plot and pace is solid so far (Ch 31). But to really enjoy this story you will need to like Yandere characters for being purely Yandere. If you love the ripped CEO yanderes because they are ripped or rich and not purely for the Yandere aspect this might not be the story for you. Because there is not much going on here for the ML, logically speaking. He has no money, no family, no future (as in he can die because of his profession as an assassin), no patronage, his body has no muscle but is full of ugly scars. His temper and inability to understand proper behaviour is also not the best. He is the worse prospect, compared to the second male lead and to other possible marriage partners. But he IS in love with her and sweet (in a Yandere way). He is honest and tries to have good communication many times. He is many times a kind person.

It's only that the story doesn't have an easy way out for them, so even with the story not being melodramatic at all so far so difficult to see how they could end up married. So, if this is your cup of tea then this is probably a good story to read.

P.S.: there are some reviews below which must have being given to the wrong series because they are just plain lies about the story: 1) the FL is not on a quest to run away from home (😕? She was kidnapped) 2) the FL didn't fault the ML for her woes at all (😕?? She literally faults herself for his troubles), so ignore them

Fantastic Yandere Series

I find it fascinating that this is in the Shoujo genre because I find it much more Seinen personally. Regardless, if you're into the Yandere character type, this is a must read. I read a metric ton of this genre (mostly books), but this manga is a standout because the male lead is actually very interested in the female lead's consent. If you engage in Yandere, you'll know the lack of consent is a common trope, and, while I have nothing against that, seeing the male lead so invested in her consent over her domination is very refreshing.

Satoko is sometimes naive because of her sheltered upbringing, but she grows from her mistakes and, most importantly to me, always makes a point to be useful where she can. Sure, she can't do much against 10 assassins all after her head, but she can outsmart the conniving nobles and courtesans who would plot against her.

Shinpei is a force of nature, stronger than any other swordsman, but he wants to know love in his own way, strives to work with Satoko and talk through things, and I find them both very refreshing as leads.

I look forward to where this story will go since we're only 26 chapters in, but there hasn't been a single miss yet.

Edit: after seeing the manga in Japanese, I think it's Seinen after all. There are no furigana on the kanji, so it's definitely intended for an adult audience. As a heads up, there's violence, nudity, some sexual stuff, and so on, but no gore (e.g. viscera) or explicit sex yet, so genre could definitely go either way.

FL who has a weak heart is on a quest to run away from home to avoid causing trouble for herself and look for a new heart in this quest she meets ML who is a broken assassin and she lure him into her trap for stealing his heart and returning home. A truly ruthless and antagonist FL a broken ML.
LOL he d*es at the end while she lives happily with her new family a truly trashy shoujo manga.
