Ive heard this starts out decent but turns into garbage, seeing as the web novel has 1000+ chapters I can see why and anyone that reads Chinese stories can too I guess lol, so imma just stay away and id recommend others just don’t bother too.
its not that bad but yes i agree it does get annoying how the MC refuses to think about the fact that they already avoided their doom the very second she got her memories back and resolved to not be the old Pride anymore…
Thats a straight fantasy bs. Dang.
As a web novel reader, I’d like to point out that unlike some other stories with the same plotline, she actually has a good reason for doing so. I can’t say more without spoiling it though.
Altair might not like it, but I certainly do. I highly recommend people read this one if they like the genre; it’s definitely one of the better written villainess stories. There’s actually a lot of foreshadowing, but we’re all too genre savvy about how these villainess stories go, so a lot of people just chalk up the foreshadowing as typical villainess story fluff.
Ironically, I feel like it’s the ones where there is some kind of corrective force of ‘plot’ that have MCs that try harder to deny it. When there isn’t, the MCs tend to be passive, or idiots that constantly blame themselves for things they didn’t even do (like Pride).
i readed the manga… and it does
NOTt gonna give this a try
