The Villainess Becomes the Leading Lady [1st Impression]

The Villainess Becomes The Leading Lady has the potential to be a good story, but it falls quite short. The art is above mediocre, but it’s not amazing.

The Villainess Becomes The Leading Lady Summary

Reborn into a fantasy novel as a wicked character fated to meet an early demise, Minjoo – now Dahlia Margaret – has a lot on her plate right from the start. But at least she’s now free of her vicious high school bully, Sooyeon.

Or is she?

When Dahlia meets Flore, her estranged sister and the protagonist of the novel, she is shocked to find that the girl bears a suspicious resemblance to the classmate who tormented her.

Now, driven by the desire to save her own life and also get revenge, Dahlia needs to make a powerful ally, and she has her eye on a handsome royal who just might be perfect for the job.

However, a deal with this mysterious man might mean more than she bargained for…

The Villainess Becomes The Leading Lady [1st Impression]
The Villainess Becomes The Leading Lady is quite interesting at first, namely with two isekai characters.

The closest story to be doing this would be Romance Fantasy Comic Binge, which features three isekai protagonists.

Sadly, I feel very little reading this story since it’s only half-decent. Initially the female lead seems decent, but I’m having some issues with the overarching story.

Like most stories, the female lead is engaged to the emperor or soon-to-be emperor but she wants out. Likewise, the emperor doesn’t love her at all.

However, instead of being happy she’s calling off the engagement they try to postpone it. This plot feels so similar to the plot of The Reason She Lives As A Villainess, with even the main characters looking quite similar.

At least the art is better in this story, but it’s not saying much. Overall I just feel like the story is decent at best, and poor at best.

Final thoughts: The plot blends with all of the other stories, so you can easily skip this one if you’d like,
