It’s not torture to read

Bland as hell, MC was interesting in the beginning with the double isekai trope, but that’s about it.

Surgeons aren’t perfect people, not even those that study a lot, our Mc is obviously a mary sue, the author obviously has an infatuation with scholars that give their whole life to a subject.

I don’t regret reading it, but I really despise how it’s never impossible for our mc to do anything, technology limitations? None, fund limitations? None, trust limitations? None.

It’s good for passing the time until you find something better

World: weak, story: mostly good

World-building is mess. Modern trains, x-ray but "no higienie", believe in "bad air" and surgery can be done only by FL (100% of success). And this with aura (magic-like) powers, battles with swords, sometimes with guns and after few names, author stopped modifying the names to fit to another world like "Brittia"&"Londo", at the end we have ex. Alps! This would be better if every name is changed like at least Allpos, Chinnie.

But worst thing is that in this world france-but-not-France have capital which never exist in our world but in epilogue author add unnecessary scene where FL is reincarnated in modern era of that other world which is "the same" as her second life in our world so it make only confusion and time paradox if author trying combine this in one world by adding that scenes.

But art (without first few chapters) and story (without parts with surgery) make this worth reading.

Mary Sue of Historical Medicine

I read this because I was interested with the application of Medicine as part of a storyline.
FL is a Mary Sue, no flaws at all. ...very capable that it I find it not so realistic. Then again this is fiction...t

Emperor has another identity named Ron, which Elise liked first but somehow she seemed fine with it when she found out that it was indeed him.
Fresh idea that she was Isekai'd twice.. like she went in sa modern world and adapted, then she went back to her original world with a new personality.

Emperor, Emperor's Brother, and co-Surgeon is in love with her.

Overall, it was a good read, but I wouldn't get excited much to read it again.

A one dimensional Mary Sue in a silly world.

If you don’t care about the story and want there to be no real difficulties for the protagonist, then this might work for you.

In the first place, the whole conflict in the story is between her being a doctor and an Empress, like an Empress actually has a job and can’t just be a doctor 90% of the time.

And for those 10%, she obviously should do it because she freaking knows the future.

It is also killing me she knows there will be a plague in a large military campaign, like every single military campaign ever and she warns them to “prepare” and it works… what ?

Art is pretty nice.

I loved this manhwa and I’ve read it 3 times already.

Rather than based on reincarnation, it is focused on redemption.
Elise was Elise but initially she acted like a bitch, was found guilty and issued the death penalty by her husband/ ML, reincarnated in an orphan in modern Korea, where she studies and becomes a renowned doctor but during a plane crash she returns again (long before she died) and redeems them by behaving well, helping with medicine.
Many events are carried out well considering that she already knows many events (for example how her brother dies) and helps by giving advice and opinions.
Reading is beautiful and never boring.
The length (143 chapters) is perfect for this story.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Perhaps the only thing I would have liked to see are any children between FL and ML.
Even the situation of the last chapter where the girl (who before was Elise) goes meets a guy who looks like the ML would have been nice to see her developed, even if that minimum just one or two chapters...

I really enjoyed the design.
I don’t feel like giving a higher score of 8.5 because in my opinion there are Manhwa/Manhua/Manga that have more delicate stories and that deal with topics that few dare.
Here at the end of the day is always the question of the villain who has a second chance (or who himself goes back in time or a person takes his place knowing that he is a villain) and redeems himself.

The Series is about Elise, who gets reincarnated with her memories intact. Twice. Originally a bitchy type character who gets burned at a stake reincarnates into the future. Realizing that her actions in the past made her you know a total bitch she decides to pursue medicine this time. To save the lives that she couldn't save before. Now she has become a successful Doctor in this time. But when going on a plane it crashes or whatever and she has been transported back into her own life. So 2nd time she's been reincarnated. 3rd time she's reliving her life. Now determined to not be the bitch. She's gonna live her life properly this time.

The series has a big Vanderohe's saw problem. To those who have seen Army of Dead know what I'm talking about. It's the opposite of Chekhov's gun trope. They keep teasing stuff but never pay it off. Some examples include the Love Triangle between 2 people but 3 characters. The vague ass powers the male lead has. The bad guy promising to commit revenge. Her parents in the modern world. And various other shit. Why did the male lead Execute her? And all that other shit.

They also keep mentioning how bad and horrible of a women she was. But literally I can only recall one actual bad thing she did. Majority of it was elementary school bullying. like Putting a frog on someone's lap, Making shit tea. Ruining someone's clothes. These are bad things yeh. But like Execution worthy? Come on.... Again the only thing that is literally implied not even properly shown is that she is hurting someone's father right in front of his daughter. But like we don't see anything. Its very short. Cuz we had more depth to what she actually did that might add some depth to the character. Add a whole new dynamic. But that requires actual skill and talent to pull off, so instead the author is gonna go the easy route and just skip all the bad shit and skip the redemption arc and just make her into a sympathetic character that is capable of holding her own webtoon series.

Another Issue I have is that the Doctor Moments are very boring. The main theme is her becoming one of a kind Doctor. The best of the best. But she goes through no trials. Not even the classic, *she's just a women type*. I mean I'm glad thats the case It would be boring and Ultra predictable instead of the super predictable it is now. Regardless she doesn't go through that much pain and punishment. She's just done it all already. They are a total of 4 surgery that are actually exciting. 1 of them had big potential drama to it. But you know the author is a pussy there is a perfect solution for every scenario.

There is some action in this series as well. But I found the more anti-climatic moments to be more hilarious tbh. Like in one scene the male lead gives the female lead a gun and so he can duel a guy she shoots him lmao. That was funny. Sadly they aren't that many scenes in the manhwa. MMC's power's are also very vague and are literally there to be plot convivence. Oh you are stuck in an incredibly specific situation? Don't worry the powers that the male lead has that is never explained will fix it all.

The setting is also a bit confusing, but I'm willing to forgo that since the inclusion of magic and what not (or really advanced technology. Like I said powers are vague as fuck).

In the end the series is disappointing. I was told to not give up on Isekai/Villainess series If I read this series since it isn't the best. It is however still disappointing.

I will talk about some of the things I did like the main romance between the male lead and female lead. However there was 90 chapters of filler in there for no apparent reason. So... Whatever I guess.

In the end should you read the series. Well Its not bad. The art is nice I liked the dress designs, and I like how the abs of the male lead point to his penis. that's what it felt like Every time he had a shirtless scene.

Strong Start

I thought the beginning was really good. The heroine is awesome and she defies expectations. It's just exciting to see what cool thing she'll do next. It's also nice that romance isn't the only focus. If I judged this off the first 50 chapters, I'd give it an 8 or 9, but this started to lose steam in the middle. I'm on chapter 102 and I feel like the story has been essentially wrapped up. Not really sure where else the story can go from here, but I don't think I care to find out. I'm not a fan of dragging things out past the core plot, but maybe I'm wrong and the ending is super awesome.

Also, I got super confused by the random introduction of magic partway through. I didn't even realize it was that kind of story. It felt irrelevant.

This reincarnation manga started out with strong plot. An intelligent doctor reincarnated to the body of a villanous pretty woman. Like any typical reincarnation manga, she change her attitude for the better to the point that she was recognized as one of the best medics in that world.

But the author started dragging her intelligence as pointed by other commenter as Martyr Mary Sue And Know-it-All. And bec she's a Mary Sue, you'll expect every handsome royal men to fawn
at her.

Speaking of men, they are all hot, sexy and handsome but bland. The Male MC is your typical sadistic man with a rather pitiful background who tormented the FMC to death, for unknown real reason aside from the one sided POV of the FMC. Of course, his attitude changes(?) in this new world (we can already see his POV). The next Man was the revengeful bro for no apparent reason (as of now) aside from not being a crown prince. The other man was a genius doctor who's just there.

Overall, the manga has potential as long as the author will not make the FMC a Mary Sue. To let her focus on her work as a great doctor and maybe a future empress.
