Dear My Friend [1st Impression]

Dear My Friend features an annoying main character, who is only good at shouting at everyone. Not really worth reading in my opinion.

Dear My Friend Summary

No more pushovers!

The main character in Maristella’s life was her friend Dorothea. Maristella was no more than a supporting role, and she struggled and sacrificed herself for her friend’s happiness, only to be betrayed in return.

Dorothea threw Maristella to her death for her own benefit.

“We’re friends, Marie.”

It was Maristella who died miserably.

“So make a concession, will you?”

As I watched Dorothea sacrifice her “friend”, I vowed never to have a miserable ending like that novel.

“You don’t seem like the person I know. It’s like you’re a different person.”

“I decided I would not be subservient to Dorothea anymore.”

I wouldn’t be as kind-hearted as Maristella. So this time I won’t suffer, Dorothea.

Dear My Friend
If you have read an isekai story where the female lead replaces the old lead, you’ve read them all.

This is no exception so far. I don’t really understand why our female lead even bother hanging around their so-called friend “Dorothea” when it’s clear they mean so little to them.

Instead of having a clean break, our female lead runs around shouting like a madwoman. Had it been in real life, she’d end up with a one-way ticket to a mental asylum.

I’m quite sad to know the same author behind this story is behind Lady to Queen and The Three Are Living a Married Life. Personally, Lady to Queen is the better story of all of them. However, The Three are Living a Married Life is at least somewhat fun or messed up.

Dear my Friend just features so many tropes and clichés. Our female lead is replacing the novel’s female lead, so of course all guys pay attention to her! How typical and boring.

In my eyes, the art is decent but nothing too spectacular. I can just assume our female lead’s “friend” is going to go bananas over the fact the male lead is interested in our female lead.

Final thoughts: I think you can skip this story if you want, it doesn’t seem to feature anything new or exciting.
