Together they’re going to do whatever it takes to bring a peaceful end to her unwanted engagement!

  1. I just finished Vol. 1. It’s quite good. Not an isekai, of which there are too many. And not one of the villainess-reverse-harems, of which there are also too many. I like that the author coolly writes one chapter from each character’s point of view without completely retelling entire events (like in Bakarina). There is some but minimal overlap.
    Otherwise, it is pretty straightforward with an outstanding heroine who is far too humble trying to put everyone else and the country’s needs before herself and winning a reverse harem in the process.
    It’s pretty believable without any outlandish tropes or comedic caricatures.
