great art but predictable story  
by ninakun
July 24th, 2022, 1:00pm
Rating: 6.0  / 10.0
I have no problem with heavy themes if the story is good. This one isn't, really. And everything is too glossed over to be heavy, or even sexy. When you take away the "edginess" -- and it's not really much -- you have a story with poor pace, with a boring FL, and a predictable plot. There are so many events that could have been engaging and gripping but lacked intensity to be so. It's unfortunate that the artist is waisting their time adapting such a boring story because their panels placement and composition is one of the best I have ever seen in a manwha.

P.S.: If the story really wanted to be edgy the ML should be the brother, Dion, he's is more interesting anyway.

Still waiting for more chapters!

Cant say much since it is only a few chapters. But so far, I like how strong the FL is. She is unwavered with her surroundings (maybe not all... But most)

And I don't think it is theres stockholm syndrome, since Ana didnt abuse ML. The syndrome only applied when the abused felt pity for the abuser. But he didnt pity those who actually abused him..

Still, the story escalated pretty quickly. I am waiting for more.. hoping I dont have to drop this one!

surprisingly good

- read up to all avail officially translated ch
- at first i didn’t think i’d like it bc of the neg reviews but i was wrong. i’ve seen a lot of ppl complain abt various things, incl fl’s family with a lack of depth (sort of true, they are all supposed to be evil but there’s a deeper individual characterization than that) and roxana (fl) as being too morally corrupt to root for (sort of true). y’all can determine that for yourselves but as someone who’s read a shit ton of oi, that is precisely what makes this so much better than the other ones. i will remind - we don’t necessarily need to moralize the fl, and we aren’t really here to judge arbitrarily whether or not roxana is a good person to base our reviews.
- i’m actually rather intrigued by the plot. magic system and world building go hand in hand with tensions, and i’ve become pretty invested in her relationship with the ml (cassis). development is unique and interesting; only complaint is the ml hasn’t showed up too much so descriptions/development r very narrow.
- the incest stuff was yucky. there’s nothing explicit, no kissing, it’s just that roxana’s brothers r obsessed with her in a non-sibling way (except jeremy maybe…?) but otherwise nah yeah that would be a general tw
- ART IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. this is among one of the few manhwas i feel guilty for not paying the artist like $10 for each chapter it’s one of the prettiest webtoons - comics, really - i’ve ever seen. such attention to detail, amazing color palette. artist took advantage of paneled webtoon format and as a result it’s rife with tension and the art flows well. some panels with illustrated narrations take my breath away.
- narrations are surprisingly well written, and i’m genuinely intrigued to the point of finding novel spoilers. writing so far has been pretty good, nothing too exceptional. yes characters can be kind of one dimensional but it’s still young

overall: 7/10 i really quite liked it! i’m looking forward to more before giving a higher rating

Roxanne: villainous? Morally gray?

Rating: N/A
Although the female leads moral compass is kind of defunct, I think that is natural. If she was always good & never did anything bad then that will be just the author giving us a false fairytale. I wouldn't believe it.

She's not just surviving in Agriche, she has power & standing. Plus the start she saves the male lead & purposely tries to gain his trust because she wants to survive not because she was a good person.

Pretty morally gray  
by Shygirlz
January 21st, 2022, 7:10pm
Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
At first I was like okay she's only doing what she has to in order to survive in her family... gruesome stuff, but again nothing more than what has to be done. Then she does stuff she didn't have to do and it's clear she's actually evil too. It's not that unexpected when she's grown up in such an environment, but at this point I'm not that interested in how she and the male lead get together 'cause I can't imagine it happening other than her corrupting the male lead or it being some type of Stockholm Syndrome thing.

In summary, at first she seems like a person with good morals that's just acting like one with no morals. Then the story starts switching to her being someone with little moral and it's more like she's only influenced by the pure ML. She'll be kind and then she'll be cruel, so maybe it's purposely inconsistent. In the end she's living with a family of psychos and fitting in with them, so what can I say.

The art is good and the characters are interesting and that's what keeps the story going. The plot is barely there and so far there's no overarching plot that I see either.

Chillingly beautiful

By far one of my favourite visual stories across all platforms so far. The artwork is absolutely stunning giving you a gothic vibe that haunts my soul. Very along the same wavelength as Kuroshitsuji with the dark, gory and tragic storyline all laid out via magnificent artwork that captivates niche readers like myself.

Great for the Edgelord

Rating: 6.9  / 10.0
Art 10/10
Plot 7/10 (for isekai)
Plot Execution 5/10

There is a lot to unpack for this rating. Let's start with these two remarks. 1) I enjoyed the series enough to finish the first season. 2) I would not recommend it; its an edgy isekai.

This story is a 2021 isekai. The isekai genre has been revived for the general public and it follows some distinct typical traits for this era (I'm not listing the traits at this moment). This particular story takes a darker conception of those traits, and hopes the audience will like it.

Now from reading the summary, I hope you understand some regular person gets transmigrated to a story where her story family plays the evil role of the same story. (wordy, huh.) This would be fine by itself, but it is a little improbable. This transmigrated lead has to play the biggest baddest villian. Could you easily accept changing your cultural preception about murder, torture, and unjust imprisionment? In a second or a couple days? And then act on it to be top dog?

The answer is "no". But, because the female lead can do this, the audience is hooked on this edgier tale of overused tropes.

However, as the story moves on, additional darkier elements are dropped in, and our female lead has no visceral moral reaction to them. Our female lead can just make rational judgements with, as she puts them, these additional annoyances. These additional elements are: child torture, incest, extremity, & etc. (Go look at other reviews to see more of the other edgy/dark elements).

At this point, each additional darkier element doesn't deepen the tone of the story, the story just gets more edgy and distastful.

As of ch 33 the story is very gripping

Rating: 10.0  / 10.0
First off the art is some of the best ive seen so its very easy to want to continue reading it if for no other reason then to continue being able to see the art. The story is very exciting. I get thriller vibes. Ever single chapter im anxious for the next wondering how the story will unfold. I love the intrigue. I love mangas surrounding crime familys and this gives a similar vibe but cranks up the intensity a notch; and honestly its very welcome. Im very tired of low risk predictable isekais. Im excited to see how the romance aspect of the story will unfold. I guess to sum it up im just excited about this story in general and looking forward to seeing how it unfolds

Too heavy (incest, cruel killing, extreme measures on everything), but aesthetics are on point.

hot garbage? Fetish sh*t? Too edgy for no reason?

Feels gimmicky. Interesting in the beginning but gets stale afterwards. Tired of seeing the FL putting on an act. Also very cringe to see her facial expressions while pretending to be a villain. Not sure how this series can remain interesting now that the initial gimmick is gone.
