Clichés and references to a book.

Rating: 6.0  / 10.0
After reading this manhwa I invite you to read "The Selection - Kiera Kass".
We see that the basis on which the story is centered, that is the competition to become the future queen of that kingdom, is inspired by that book.
The ending is by no means satisfying. In a few manhua and manhwa I found myself at the end with more questions than answers.
The story, as said, is full of more clichés than others I have read.
In some places I struggled to carry on reading, which is rare to happen to me.
Drawings ... better put a blindfold. I'm sorry but at times it's ALL wrong.
I do not spoilers but in one chapter we see the protagonist cut in half as if there were a table but the table ends almost 2cm before!
ML and FL ... boring! Honestly, the secondary characters have more depth and characterization.
One thing I absolutely didn't like is the fact that they introduce some characters that are important at the end of the plot, show them for just one chapter and then DISAPPEAR! They are not even mentioned anymore!
If you need something to read with a dull brain, I recommend it, otherwise move on.
The 6 is because in my opinion it is a work that has pulled enough ... also because I have really found many references to a book that I adore.

Romance is bad, but the competition is interesting

Art = 4/10
I’ve read worse (e.g Taming of the Shrew, One-Punch Man, etc.), but the wonky shadows & furniture can really take you out sometimes. I have trouble separating some characters bc the men look like clones of each other and the same can be said for the women. Rely heavily on hair color/style is my advice if you wanna stick with this one.

Characters = 4/10
The side characters shine to justify this rating. They need more of a spotlight. The whole mechanic of
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
101 reincarnations to the same world participating in the same crown princess competition where they are all protagonists of each of their own stories is interesting. I like that we have some stories or reincarnators who don’t necessarily get a happy ending, or don’t necessarily end up with romance as their end-game.
The ML and FL are nothing to write home about. The ML is a not very likable. He is thoughtless, manipulative, spineless, and shows zero character development. The FL seriously deserves better, but she is naive to a fault. She is way too honest, trusting, stupid, and self-righteous. The only character development she has is overcoming a fear the readers didn’t know about. Most annoyingly, she claims she doesn’t want attention, but then she goes out of her way to get attention. It’s because she has this plan (that no one understands) to somehow expose how the competition to become crown princess is exploitative & cruel.

Plot = 4/10
The transitions for panels and character development is very choppy and abrupt, so it can be a bit hard to follow. For instance
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
FL will end up in the dorms of the competition instead of showing her entering the competition; or she has a fear of cameras that doesn’t reveal itself until later on, but she has little to no problems with them before that sudden reveal; or a competitor suddenly starts talking to Evie (FL) like they know her but they’ve never been shown to us, the readers, as having interacted before; etc.
The romance is trash, because the ML is trash. The ML basically does whatever he wants with the FL without her consent and gets away with it. The FL has convenient dumbness and doesn’t notice. I feel so bad for the FL, but I absolutely love all the side characters and their schemes together. They are a powerful group of ladies even though I don’t understand what they are doing and why most of the time. I find the competition fast-paced and entertaining so I give it a pass compared to how terrible the romance is.

I did like this series and I liked the intrigue and drama enough, but it ends kinda blandly and left me with a sour taste.

A commoner who joined a royal contest and was chosen out of pure luck and hates to stand out but stood out anyway.

Part/s I liked:

The twist. Well, partly. I've read a few isekai stories and the common denominator has always been a sole FL whose goal is to avoid conflicts or death since they knew how the story would end. But not this one. Evie actually had no idea how the story would unfold despite being aware that she was reading a novel prior to her death. Another point is that I was surprised by the revelation
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
of one of the candidates being actually one of the protagonists of their multi-volume story.
That twist alone could give this manhwa plot extension and rising conflicts without forcefully dragging the story to end. But, yeah. This has only 71 chapters and I am convinced that it's too short.

Evie. She stood out not only because of her commoner social status, just like some other series. Cliche but I love how her physical appearance smashed the stereotype. And if I remember correctly, she was the only one with that kind of hairstyle, which is why her character stuck out symbolically as well.

Part/s I didn't like:

Weak to no character development. First and foremost and I'm sorry, the execution of the ML's character. Like Dengeki Daisy, I think the author intended to make the ML's identity seem obvious. If that was the case, they should have revealed it within the first few chapters. The author put the reader in the FL's shoes initially but I personally think that that tactic failed. Otherwise, I don't see any reason why it had to reach numerous chapters before
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Violet's character was "revealed". It would have been more surprising if the masked version of the ML had different physique and interacted a few more times with the characters.
That way, they could lure the readers into thinking of another character. It's actually pretty predictable that I had an internal debate whether to put spoiler or not.

Violet was like he skipped a large gap to arrive to how his character ended up.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Numerous times, he declared that he had to play the bad guy.
But honestly, I didn't see the depth of that. I also didn't see him as a partner to Evie. In fact, I was rooting for Renok and honestly, I felt like he's got more potential character development albeit rushed.

And what about Selena?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She was dead set on declaring that her position was secured right from the start. But for me, there was really no final showdown between her and Evie--the latter was obviously the winner in the first place (no pun intended) because of her trump card.

Weak conflict.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Violet repeatedly spoke of how he was sorry that he had to play dirty and that the crown princess was already chosen to begin with.
But towards the last few chapters, I found it hard to believe that he was actually struggling. There was no scene where I felt that I could sympathize with the ML simply because I didn't see an inner battle against himself. No, he wasn't torn between his duty as a crown prince and as a lover.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He simply decided that he'd choose the FL just because of one dance.
And because of that, the king (who was also the primary antagonist) looked like he was just designed solely for the purpose of the story having an antagonist. There was just one scheme from him towards the end of the series but it didn't seem a dramatic climax and "final boss" to me.

I seriously think that the only thing that compelled this story to reach up to more than 70 chapters was Evie's desire to bring a revolution to the way the contest was held. There was no apparent and permanent end to the corrupted system of the contest either. That final resort served as a deus-ex-machina just so Evie and Violet could have a happy ending.

I could also overlook those random numbers at the start of the story given that Evie was the protagonist of the story (or the world) she was in.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
That could be her luck, but it was too much of a coincidence that her birthday coincided with the crown prince's rule of "numbers no more than 45". What frustrated me the most was his surprised reaction when Evie told him the reason behind her choice of numbers. I thought there was something significant about it that would be revealed in the later chapters but no. That was purely random of a reason so Evie could join the contest.

All in all, I didn't enjoy the romance. What got me hooked was how the formed alliance thought of tactics to win the contest. It was more of a story about friendship and girl power to me.

If you'rw like me who doesn't like unresolved questions like
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ch.59-60 did the ML really make out with another girl as he said to the FL and left it unclarified if it's really true or not? (I tend to drop these types of MCs)
save yourself the trouble and skip this.

Hooked in the beginning ..... but it’s bad

Rating: 2.0  / 10.0
The main characters lose their flavour very quickly and the side characters become marginally more interesting. Renok and Selena deserved a story of their own but instead we’re stuck with an unlikable, self-pitying prince and a boring heroine. And i mean boring. She’s a Mary Sue - everything goes her way from the very beginning, save for the prince messing her up. Bland. So bland.
The first 5 chapters seemed promising enough but it goes downhill from there. A lot happens very quickly but at the same time nothing happens and the story draaaaags.
This feels like the authors first manwha bc it’s just so...meh. And rushed. And badly written.

Any way yeah, give it a try to about ep 20, and if u find u dont like it by then, just drop it, it’s not worth it - the most unsatisfying romance - it reminds of ‘to all the boys: p.s i still love you".

Too many clichés, predictable plot, typical shoujo MC. The protagonist is, of course, ✨different✨ from all the other girls and everytime she says or does something, everyone goes gasp 😮 and promptly falls in love with her.

The romance also seems forced. There's barely any chemistry between the main pairing, but hey, at least the art is good.

If you're one of those people who have never read a shoujo manga/manhwa before, then you miiiight like this story. Otherwise, skip.
