Ordinary office worker Oohashi Rei wakes up in the body of the protagonist of her favorite otome game, Revolution. To her delight, the first person to greet her is also her favorite character, Claire Francois--the main antagonist of the story! Now, Rei is determined to romance Claire instead of the game's male leads. But how will her villainous ladylove react to this new courtship?!
The manga adaptation of Inori's light novel hits its mark in this goofy yet intriguing volume. Chronically overworked salarywoman Rei awakens to find herself reborn in the fantasy world of Revolution, her favorite dating simulation video game, as its protagonist. But rather than try to romance any of Revolution's intended male suitors, Rei throws herself upon her favorite character: Claire, a cruel aristocratic bully and the game's de facto villain. Much of the ensuing action follows an expected trajectory as Claire's attempts to torment Rei meet only with relentless doe-eyed adoration, rendered with tongue-in-cheek visual humor and plenty of sight gags by Aonoshimo. But there's more at stake than just a one-sided crush, as Rei slowly teases out her knowledge of political subterfuge and events still to come in the game's timeline while insinuating herself deeper into Claire's life. Thoroughly entertaining, this first volume will be well received by fans of the original series while remaining inviting the uninitiated.
Not ur typical generic formula
The Arthur isn’t afraid to keep the reader in the dark about what the protagonist knows but hints just enough to keep the reader guessing at what’s to come. Read in one day, too good to not.
Wonderful story! I absolutely loved it and am eagerly awaiting the sequel. Stay healthy!
