    This is one of several manhwa @VereorNox recommended to me recently, and by far one of the best I've read...

    If this sounds familiar, it's because it is very similar in feel to Villainess Lives Twice, but much better handled in my opinion.

    The MC is a genuinely competent protagonist, who after being spurned by her fiance for another woman, goes off on a quest to take everything from the other girl.

    Only, a freak accident let's her switch bodies with the otome protagonist... and the idyllic life she envisioned the girl having hides some rather sinister undertones to it.

    The characters are really multi-faceted, and every few chapters we unpeel a different layer of their onion. Also, Medea (the protag villainess) is such a bae. Worth reading for her alone.

    @Sesc you can yell at me here.

    5/5

    I am massive disappoint. And also not.

    See, you're getting all ready to cackle when <3 Medea takes her sword to walk through a knight for convenience and vows to take everything from the disgustingly sweet and perfect princess you can't help but hate.

    But it's not that story.

    On the other hand, it's also not a bad story. There's plenty of shredding going on. Just ... not what was advertised. So, I like this. But now I also want my revenge porn this thing SKIPPED OUT ON. Gah!

    This story is very good and does not deserve to languish In the review board. I don't really have anything constructive to add about this story that hasn't been said above.

    My personal recommendation is go read The Villainous Lives Twice, if you like that story but think that the main character is not evil enough come back and read To Be You.

    5/5
