Since when have things become that troublesome?

So the story of Iris meeting baka prince for the first time definitely never happen in the WN version (It was never stated in the WN why she looks up/love that idiot prince to begin with). It's sad to see that she works hard for him only to get dumped away.

What I'd like to know, ahead of however long it's going to take, is why Dean ever showed up in the first place. Did he come because of the fief's sudden progression? Perhaps the fief's new lord? Or maybe even just wandering in like a curious cat?

And now, something completely different. I've always wondered how a person ends up living as a soul in another body. Does the soul take over completely and erase the old, or maybe they merge into someone new? Iris, in her previous form was a workaholic with no real experience in love- that we know of. While memory Iris is a life with one love that betrayed her for some . So it feels like we're seeing memory Iris in earnest, one who has cut ties with love and- as she says, "created a line". You'd think a merged Iris would be less likely to draw lines in the sand, as the soul Iris knows of the 'game', and that her betrayal was practically ordained by cruel gods. Maybe it's the fact she is falling in love again in the first place that which makes the merged Iris?

Oh, wow, the second prince actually used to have a semblance of personality.
Kinda ironic hat he used to tell people to look past someone's status while he's now flaunting his royalty to fulfill the otome's protag every demands.

To me, it seems like he's just going to purge some noble by reporting their corruption semi-anonymously, but then unintentionally get recruited by Iris.
Then Iris' workaholic and vision kept him there.

Then again, dunno, haven't read the novel.

In the WN. Dean visited the fief out of curiosity after hearing the rumor of its progression, he also wanted to hire whoever responsible for the sudden progression for his own personal gain (According to the WN that is). But to his surprise, he never expected it was Iris and he slowly abandons his goal of trying to hire her and tries his best to help her while hiding his true identity.
.
In the case of Iris, rather than a new soul taking over the body. It was more of a sudden memory of the past storming your brain, she still remember who she is now and also who she was. Of course she knew that what she is experiencing now is part of what once a game her past self used to play. But at the same time, game logic doesn't really work since the original game never delve deep into the politics and power struggle. Her action may have already changed the original game route as far as I can see. As for the love part, seeing that this manga may be following the LN version. There maybe some difference in the later chapter that doesn't appear in the WN version.

I was surprised myself. In the WN, I always thought the 2nd prince was always a D-ck and Iris love for him is simply because he was the 2nd prince. Knowing now that Iris love for him was pure and seeing her being dumped by him after she did her best makes me even more pissed at that bastard.

The manga is most definitely adapted from the LN version, since I've noticed details that haven't shown up in the WN version that's been translated. Some novel series I've read added new stuff like this probably to elaborate on weird details like this whether it's a side story or some kind of added extra detail. It's to either explain or deal with a possible plot hole or fix a detail so the story flows better. I always wondered what probably caused Iris to fall in love with the baka prince. Manga adaptions are almost always from the LN version.

@Vasqueztion
From my memory about Dean's thing.


For Iris, I think it's a bit of a weird merge. Like the two co-exist at the same time and work together at the same time yet you can tell there are separations. Iris's memories. Our MC's modern knowledge of accounting and various modern day products. There are random differences like, our MC's Japanese cuisine habits versus common sense, eating raw fish, nobility wouldn't eat raw fish like that usually I think, or our MC's yoga exercise usage versus what's normal for a lady of nobility since Tanya was disapproving of it.

Raise your hand if you want to kick Ed ass or have Tanya do it. Honestly, that girl gave her all to be the perfect person and stand by his side and his asshole self could even giver an present. Idk how such a cute kid could turn into such annoying guy, but now I can't wait to see him get his ass handed by Iris and Dean when the time comes.

Also, Iris cutie, open your heart to Dean. He is the most handsome and nice prince. I bet he won't disappoint you.

Thanks for the new update, you guys! It made my week so much better! You guys are doing an marvelous job

@Vasqueztion: Is just speculation but I think Dean was aiming for learn more about his country/business and then got involved with commerce guild and then later meet Iris. I think he might got curious about it bc it follows the trend of the fiefs of the persons that support him. Also, about the soul thing, in the WB novel, they say that their souls merged, so is "Iris" and "MC" together, I think, sharing the same feelings, but with different memories (?). Idk, I don't understand much of the concept.

@irmaars21 if you want a spoiler i can give some details from the WN version of how it ends

Thanks so much, @kevmasterxoc and @Kucai, you guys are really gonna help me go through the WB novel knowing how this shit show is gonna end. Also, I thought I couldn't hate Ed more, but here I am, burning with hatred just thinking about little shit.

Just another questions:

The soul thing is quite simple, as explained in the first chapter, the two lives are merged. She is one person now, with memories of both lives, but as she says in this chapter, she is starting over from when the second set of memories came up in her mind, the day of the break up. So both pasts are in the past, and her personality and behavior have averaged out between them.

Also, I just started the wn, and she does say that she started the story as chubby, and that's why she started the yoga.

The WN has been translated further while LN isn't so all of the answer here is based on the WN

And some info on Yuri's harem based on WN

well for the ones mentioning the merge of egos the author is following a patterns or a model (I call them that doesn't mean there are any define models) but as I only have the manga pointers can be describe as follow base of other models or ways of use it by other author's/tales/histories. this is my take or interpretation I'm not saying is 100% correct but feel free to look at it, I put it in a tag to keep it short.

I really can't understand why is she letting something that didn't actually happened to her have so much effect, she has the memories and experience of a whole different life, other than the memories of the noble girl one, just get over it and stop acting like the noble girl life was yours...
She has known him for 2 months at most at this time right? Is it really this much time for her to feel this way about him?
Avatar
@Lenk Basicly the MC is losing sight of who she is then. Interesting and it does seem like a commom hapenstance in these kind of scenarios, good think the author didn't go that route with Bakarina (from another manga).
Avatar
@mahtan but she is that noble girl. every aspect of iris' life experiences and memories are hers in their entirety.

UWOOOOOOOOOH! She needs many headpats.

@mahtan This is less an Isekai but more a story about remembering past lives. And it shows in the way it presents itself. Look at this situation instead as a girl scorned by love, and finding someone so warm and tender, yet so steadfast and reliable. A person who can manage to keep up with her wild demands and is able to bounce ideas off with her. And with those good looks to boot, it's hard for her not to fall for him.
