Original ONGOING Adventure Comedy Fantasy Romance Male Lead Reincarnation Slice of Life

My name is Alexander Halesworth, sole heir to a prestigious ducal house. Or rather, that’s what my identity is supposed to be now. I still haven’t gotten used to this whole situation yet.

Not long ago I was just a humble store clerk. But shortly after getting into an unfortunate road accident, I woke up in the setting of an infamous Otome Game called “Lost in Love: A Heart Throbbing Romance in a Fantasy World~!”

Yeah. It’s even trashier than it sounds. Don’t judge me, it was a gift from a friend.

*cough* Anyway, this situation wouldn’t be too bad, except I ended up in the body of the worst possible person: the villainess’ older brother. Alexander has great looks, near limitless wealth, and a thoroughly rotten personality. In most of the game’s endings I end up dead or exiled. My family also falls to ruin, and don’t even get me started on what happens to my evil little sister.

Well, whatever. If that’s the hand fate dealt me, then I just have to prevent the bad ends, right? And if I have no choice but to deal with this family’s baggage, I may as well enjoy myself while I’m at it. Being filthy rich and powerful has its benefits.

For example, this cute maid who I get to tease whenever I want.

Simply put, this is an amazing story. This author clearly knows how to write a proper plot with fleshed-out characters and with perfect grammar to boot. Not only that, I feel that we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg in terms of the potential this story has. Magic? Other 'main' characters? School arc? Romance? Not even there yet, yet so far this is probably my favorite story on RR! Please continue with this awesome, awesome story!

7 chapters and this is fun

Yeah, this is good. Grammar good, Story good, no long info dumps, Mc is little on weird side(Mc died but he didn't feel terrified of it or I might not have noticed(I was reading this at 00:43)), Clear goals but this moving a little to fast. The idea is good, very good though.

P.S. I would love if the Mc becomes OP though

Edit: This is after reading chapter 22 and I must say that this story continues to charm me. Mc is not op-action type(Which I adore) but a decent human being with human powers.

I didn't know what to expect from this type of reincarnation novel, but it is very good. Although the troupes are there, that doesn't pull away from the enjoyable story. Order master does well in the execution of character expansion and a plot driven direction. Both are what this type of story requires. The pace is great, not rushed but not so slowed down by the content Order could've inserted. Overall it is a great piece in the works that readers can look forward to each new release.

story carried by its humor!!1

Nice. It reminds me of other otome transfer novels. Although I've only read two or three that are light hearted/not tragedies. I'm at chapter 22 right now. I really like how there seems to be a lot of friction between him and his environment. It's a good mix of suspense and genuineness. Suspense in terms of there's still a lot of bad endings he has to worry about, such as corruption or his family being such poopy dicks, and genuineness in that this mc is rather proactive in fixing things. I like the friction, and some of that is because we don't know how people will react to his actions. There's some suspense besides the overarching plot- he may be immune to punishment but his servants are not. 

I'm assuming, after reading 20 chapters, that this will be a light hearted story, with small hiccups here and there. So far it seems like so long as the mc wills it, the fixes will happen. I like that currently it's not a snap of the fingers, and it's a rather slow process [so I like that it seems realistic that things immediately don't become a 10/10 utopia]. But, as I've said before, it does seem like so long as the mc wills it, it will go towards that. On one hand I wish that this wasn't the case; I can see it just being a cycle of the mc wants something good to happen into good things happen, which is pretty consistent in these types of otome stories. I don't like how it's such a repeatable pattern. But, maybe going away from this is a mistake as well- tropes shouldn't be avoided just because they are tropes. So far I think a healthy mix of at least a sprinkle of looming suspense and these good intentions might be the winning play. I assume at one point a lot of things are going to be hunky dory. Not sure what would be good then. I imagine too much suspense would be a bad thing. Who knows! I don't.

Regardless of whether there is a long cycle of good intentions into good results, I hope that there is more casual/harmless misunderstandings, more comedy[ by more I don't mean I want more of x thing in frequency/density, rather I want more of this consistent quality that the story has so far in terms of humor/comedy] and some heartwarming moments once in awhile. I think full on fluffy all the time would be too much, in line with when/if the mc ever comes to the point where he doesn't have to worry about much. Maybe the author should end it at that point? But it can be a good thing to have a lot of fluff- like maybe a chapter or two or a small arc. But what do I know? Not me. Keep it up! I think that the sort of casual comedy in the story is the best part, but in isolation would be pretty horrible without everything else going on, such as the juxtaposition with some of the serious problems that are present that the mc has to face.

Can't really say much more than that this is one of the most enjoyable novels that I have read on the site.

 

Well written with great character interations and it was able to make me smile almost constantly.

 

I can only hope that it continous and if it does I also hope that the author will allow me to support their work in some fashion.

Character development good for the soul.

Summary: Some dude gets transported into an Otome game world (basically a visual novel where the MC is a girl trying to get guy routes) but he's the main villain's brother. So now, he's gotta figure out how tf he's gonna live.

Grammer: Pretty good. Minor errors here and now (no really, it's not noticeable, even for a slow reader like me.)

Style: Can't say I like the overly saturated commentary from the MC, but it seems you are going for that classic Japanese ISEKAI novel type of genre. MC is tolerable until the goes on huge tangents.

Story: Worldbuilding is gradually increasing and I am quite invested.

Character: I honestly do like most of the characters. Most of them are quite loveable. However, you done goofed with the [SPOILERS] latest scene in chapter 20?  This is where you did that card game with the maids. It's too out of place for this sort of story now matter how light hearted you try to make it and logically inconsistent. I recommend you revise this to better fit in with the character's perceived reputation, because it personally broke my immersion when I realised it.

Overall, I loved the journey in catching up to the latest parts. I do hope you continue writing. If your author's notes are anything to go by, let me confirm that it is as fun to read this as it is for you to write : D

Otome game transmigration are usually mostly similar, with the character changes and interations that differentiate the good from the bad. This is obviously a bad one. Characters aren't evil for no reason, and should not be assumed so; no attempt is made to understand or describe the interactions of power between parent and child, servants and master, and especially fiance and fiancee. 

 

I tried reading this as usually royalroad authors place more emphasis on depth of characters rather than a fluffy story and catching title, but do not be deceived by the synopsis, there isn't even any cute scenes of "teasing".
