Initially I bought the manga because COMIC FLOS was having a sale on Bookwalker and the first volume synopsis sounded interesting enough. The idea of a trope reversal where the heroine reincarnated as a common noble also piqued my interest. The heroine, Fillimina, is quite likeable, with the strong will personality to overcome her hardships, but is also a magnet for disaster. Egidius seems to be fragile at first, but his determination to becoming a man who can support Fillimina makes their relationship a good read.
Holy cats, I can't beleive no one put this suggestion up already. Fully support this title.
As someone who read the manga adaptation, I must caution that the MC's characterisation might rub some readers the wrong way, esp. those who are used to more brash, gung-ho, proactive heroines like Katerina Claes, Marielle Clarac or Erica Aurelia.
Not that this affects its Japanese popularity, in fact I think the fanbase loves it.
Oh... yes. Unfortunately, the spoiler comment confirmed my suspicion from the blurb. Not my cup of tea, but I hope for those who do enjoy it it will be licensed!
I hope they pick up the light novel.
