Fake Cinderella (Suggestion for JNC Heart)



  • A very nice story in my eyes, appears fluffy and cute at first (the romance as Altirie grows up more and more is also totally nice and fluffy), but there is much more to the story, than it seems. Also the cooking scenes are a nice side dish to the political intrigues which happen in the novel.

    Must have missed this on the first time round I’ll give it an upvote now. Looks like a nice fluffy shoujo title.

    @silvercat422 You know, it hasn't even been a week since you last bumped the topic (and some of your other topics). It's one thing to bump a topic that hasn't been posted in several months, but when it hasn't even been a week, it just makes you look desperate, which can turn others off from voting for your suggestions.

    I'd generally only bump a suggestion thread when a new volume comes out. Then, you can bump the topic with that news (and an image of the new cover). That allows for periodic bumps to the topic while also making it known that the series is continuing and hasn't stalled out or got cancelled, which is always good to know. Other than that, if the series has been mentioned by Sam on the JNC Curiouscat (or is relevant to one of the answer there), you can bump with a link to the relevant answer. If someone else makes a duplicate topic, that's also good enough reason for a bump.

    Otherwise, bumping topics when you don't have anything to add, especially so quickly, isn't going to help.

    @stardf29 not to sound rude (i understand just saying that can come off as rude but that really is not my intention)

    they created the topic so they are free to do as they please as long as they aren’t harassing others.

    I understand that you are saying what you said to Inform them that it could lead to users not supporting the suggestion, but let the chips fall as they may...

    Short of someone bumping a topic an excessive amount I see nothing wrong here, if you don’t like OPs frequent bumps you should mark the topic as “ignoring”



  • This novel is awesome (read some chapters of a fan translation and immediately fell in love with it), the art is sooo pretty and the manga seems nice too! I would love to see this novel getting licensed. You have my upvote!!!^^

    A cooking novel?! Moreover mainly about making sweets?! It would be a shame, if it doesn't get licensed!



  • Volume 10 got recently released:

    I have always been very interested in cooking, especially in making sweets. Unfortunately the only cooking novel I've read so far, Cooking with Wild Game couldn't really convince me. But this one is different. I could finally read a few chapters of the web novel fan translation and almost immediately I fell under it's spell. This novel is just the right mixture of cooking, making sweets and romantic love story with a lot of mystery. Moreover the art style is totally beautiful! It's the perfect cooking novel for female readers!!! Now I want JNC to license it more than ever!!!

    Oh! Hearing there’s actually cooking increases my interest exponentially!



  • @petitmelon You should read the manga then. There are some scenes where the female lead makes sweets. Even better, you should read the fan translation.



  • A cooking novel for girls? I would love to read it!!!

    This looks cute I would read it



  • The art looks really nice and the story sounds interesting, moreover I like making sweets. Upvote!



  • Sounds like a nice romance novel, moreover I‘ve read “cooking novel for girls“ in the comments, so one more reason it should definitely get licensed. And the art is absolutely gorgeous! You’ve definitely got my upvote!!!



  • Cute art, would love to read it!



  • I love cooking, so upvote.
