"The Inner Palace Tale of a Villainess Noble Girl"
"Akuyaku Reijō Kōkyū Monogatari"
It's about a noble family that has the unfortunate trait of being born with evil eyes, so the people around treat them as if they are comic villains even though the family is very kind and loving. Looks like it's a romance comedy starring the daughter who I think is named Diana.
Description from NU:
In the Elgrand Kingdom, a certain earl’s daughter was well-known.
Captivating men and women of all ages with her beautiful looks, she did as she pleased. To those who defied her, she had no forgiveness, crushing them thoroughly, and she caused misfortune for multitudes of people simply for her amusement.
Beautiful and cruel, with sharp thorns, she was the “Rose of Ice”.
“Um, who is that story about?”
This is the story of an earl’s daughter, who will have everything she has to do explained the day after tomorrow, and who, after all, sorts of troubles, tries to somehow attain happiness in the battlefield of women called the inner palace.
Publisher is Arian Rose / Frontier Works.
A Manga version also debuted in January.
The 8th and final volume came out earlier this year. Upvoting as I like what little is out in fan trans, and it's nice to have an ending in sight.
This is the progenitor of the excellent villainess noble girl sub genre right? With it finished, I wonder if that makes licensing negotiations more reasonable? I would love to see more of this genre, especially the one that started it all.
One of the OG, yeah. No Reincarnation / Otome game, but it seems to be the progenitor of the modern Villainess sub-genre. Released in Web Novel form in 2012, two years earlier than Bakarina from what I could tell.
