Aidin [Manhwa – Recommendation]

Aidin is pretty darn good, both in terms of story and art style. If you like time reversals, you should definitely give this one a go.

Summary of Aidin from MU

Aideen, the esteemed daughter of Duke Glandya, is the Emperor’s assassin and the leader of ‘Owl.’
For giving everything and serving her Lord faithfully, she was betrayed and sentenced to death by guillotine.

“I will take revenge on you. I will never forgive you even in death!”

Abandoned by her Lord, her life came to an end, yet the moment she opened her eyes again, she realized she had returned to a time when she was still only 17. In order to get her revenge, she decided to destroy her home country Perdi that the Emperor cherished more than his life.

“You are beautiful, Milady. Especially those red eyes of yours.”

The man who personally sent the order to have Aideen executed, the Prince from the enemy country, Diceon,
unexpectedly began to interfere with her life!

The story of Aideen, the woman who was abandoned by the Emperor and was given a second chance at life to get her revenge and to destroy her home country, now unfolds! 
I’m getting “The Little Mermaid” vibe
Our main character, Aideen, is pretty much what Sahara Illaud SHOULD have been in “Crows Like Shiny Things”.

The story is pretty straightforward in terms of the plot: it’s a revenge story where your previous enemies become your allies. I quite like how our heroine directs her anger towards the right people. She could easily feel resentment against the crown prince, but she doesn’t. She’s wary of him, of course. He did chop off her head, so that totally makes sense.

I really like how smart Aidin and her owls seem to be as well. They fake her illness and use relics to fool people around them. It’s clear there’s something brewing between Aidin and the crown prince, but I suppose it’s not going to be explored until season 2, at the earliest.

Someone commented and said the art was very basic and I might have to agree. Yet, is that really such a bad thing? Not really. I prefer art that’s executed to perfection than art that hides behind frills and flashy colours. Besides, it’s actually pretty decent in my eyes.

Aidin isn’t easily flustered or lose track of her mission, nor is she’s the type to stand and blush in front of enemies. Surprisingly she’s also very caring of her Owls, they’re her family. This is partly the reason she wanted to go back in time and fix her mistakes. She didn’t want them to die for her!

Recommendation: Yes, if you like slower stories with a strong female character.
