[book 1] [book 2]

On one spring evening when I was eight years old, I, Erica, Duke of Aurelia’s daughter, realized something.

Huh, I have reincarnated into a fantasy world, haven’t I?

Moreover, it was the romance-fantasy girl game that had the reputation of being bloody, 『Liber Monstrorum ~Phantom Beasts and the Winter Princess~』

 

The face reflected in the mirror was that of the villainess character of that game.

After repeatedly harassing many characters, including the heroine, she would die without exception, signaling the beginning of an event called the bizarre incident. She was a villain who deserved to get the consequences!

 

—I absolutely don’t want a destiny like that, though?

 

No, for me who has remembered the memory of my previous life, there would be no such thing.

 

In my previous life, I was harassed immensely by an irrationally angry yandere man who proclaimed ‘She is absolutely in love with me.’

My cause of death, too, was from being stabbed by another yandere man who I only had talked with a few times……

 

Now that I have become the haughty villainess Erica, I shouldn’t encounter more misunderstandings like with the previous life’s yandere men anymore, right……?

 

In that case, it will be fine as long as I deal with the death flags that I may have raised myself.

All right! First of all, before the bizarre incident begins at the Magic Academy, I will strike down the death flags accordingly!!

 

—Or so I thought, but it seems that I am about to die.

Eeh, how did this happen—!?

  1. I quite like this series. And I”l be quite impressed if you do translate this all the way to the end. To this day, I’ve never once read all the way to the end of these reincarnated into an otome game type novels. Either because the author dropped the novel, or otherwise the translator. Well, I wish you the best in translating; I’ll be checking out some of your other projects later. 🙂

    The logic of this sencence is messed up. Erica realized that she is Erica

      1. Makes me afraid of starting to read story with such out of order mess synopsis. Even machine translators don’t confuse several different paragraphs. They only confuse within same paragraph, within same sentence.

        1. Well can you give me suggestion to make it better then? Also, it said 私ことアウレリア公爵令嬢エーリカ so yeah, the raw did say it like that. It’s not that the sentence is messed up, but it’s because that’s how it is. She has only just realized that she was Erica, on one spring evening when she was 8 years old. This is a common plot point in many reincarnation story. But sorry if my grammar is bad.

          1. I feel like I understood your translation perfectly… maybe English isn’t that person’s first language, or he or she had a brainfart?

            Or perhaps if someone is unfamiliar with transmigration/reincarnation stories, the context is off for them. But I think the summary is fine as it is. Thanks for your hard work! ❤

          2. Ahaha no, that was before my grammar editor and my japanese editor came along so the summary was badly translated. So it’s understandable that the person didn’t understand it back then. Right now everything is editted od everyone can understand it better

          3. Although you say that, what it was back then was not grammatically wrong, just perhaps phrased in a way not suitable for this context I guess. Oh well, everything is cleared up now, so all is well.

    1. Internal identification distinct from outside identification.

      Apparently, it was when she was eight that her persona as a reincarnated person came to the fore.
      Prior to that age, either the reincarnated persona was suppressed, or hadn’t been introduced into that body.
      But, when “she” (the body) was eight, that persona became dominant, and realized that she wasn’t in the body she had lived in previously, and had a different external identification than she had in her previous existence. She’s relating when she came into a realization that she was reincarnated, and in this case the dominant personality is that from the previous life, so it’s that person realizing that things were very different from what they had been.

      Let “A” equal the persona.
      Let “B” equal the external identification of the body within which that persona dwells.
      “A” is a constant value.
      “B” is a variable value, subject to change as the physical body hosting the persona is changed.
      “A” has to have a sufficient recollection of previous existences to recognize that “B” has changed. That recollection may not occur early on in life; when it does occur, there will be a realization that they aren’t who they used to be, if the persona is reincarnated, not just memories from a previous existence being made available.
      The sentence attempts to describe “A” realizing that “B” is not what it used to be.
      “I”, in this case, refers to the reincarnated persona “A”. “Erika, daughter of the Duke of Aurelia” refers to the physical existence in this world within which she had been reincarnated “B”.

      Of course the logic of the sentence would seem to be messed up if you don’t understand that the CPU and boot drive with installed OS just got dropped onto a different motherboard, to use an analogy.

  3. I’ve been wondering something for a while. Firstly, I’ve noticed after reading through the translations so far that this story is narrated from 2 perspectives. Mostly from Erica’s 1st person point, and around the epilogues and in some places, from a 3rd person’s point. You have translated the entire story in past tense. I think the parts from Erica’s perspectives would’ve sounded better if written in present tense considering how often she adds her ongoing thoughts indicating she is narrating as the events are taking place instead of narrating past events. For example, let me quote a place from the first arc.

    [However, rather than something happened, it was better that nothing happened.

    –A sense of relief……was it alright to feel it?

    But then, where did Klaus go? I used the Wand of Glam Sight just to be safe. Huh? This – this lock, it was a phantom!]

    There are tons of other instances where she makes a comment or a monologue which should logically be used if the events are taking place right now instead of being in the past. So I think this passage would sound more natural if said like-

    [However, rather than something happened, it is better that nothing happened.

    –A sense of relief……is it alright to feel it?

    But then, where has Klaus gone? I use the Wand of Glam Sight just to be safe. Huh? This – this lock, it is a phantom!]

    Her fluctuating emotions wouldn’t be expressed so expressively if she was retelling something that has already occured or happened in the past right? It sounds the most natural in present tense.

    Then the final chapter of the 1st arc was in a 3rd person’s perspective so I think it’s fine to leave it in past tense.

    Of course, if the story is written in Past tense like that instead of the present tense then I have nothing to say about it. The rest is for you to judge.

    1. So, the narrative of the novel has a distinctive style in it. I use past tense because sometimes, there are instances when Erica used brackets to react. Like:
      (W-why is the son of the Earl in a place like this!?)

      On that instances, I will use present tense to differentiate between the narratives and her reaction. Or else there wouldn’t be any difference. I hope this understandable ^^

  4. Might be worth to add that both volumes of the LN can be bought for Kindle as digital version. So there’s no need for heavy shipping fees and such. I know that expensive shipping is usually a deal breaker for people who want to support their authors. The only downside is that the few images are of low quality (as is tradition with anything the Japanese scan ..).

    Just bought volume 1 a few days ago.

  5. The one gripe I have with this novel is – why did the author decide to make it about 8 year olds?
    (very mild spoilers ahead)

    – They don’t behave like 8yo children, no matter how smart. Justified perhaps for Ericia whose previous-life memories and personality have mostly overridden her original ones – but all the other children behave nothing like they should at that age.
    – They are not treated by others like 8yo children – regardless of cultural differences there’s just no way for them to have this level of freedom and be treated this seriously. We even have an 8yo boy involved in an official royal investigation team…
    – They don’t have capabilities that would make sense for 8yo children, no matter how talented… It gets pretty ridiculous when it comes to physical combat in the dragon tournament. I know that dragon control is the most important but riders’ skill with weapons matters too – and we’re supposed to believe that a 8yo can handle (and not just struggle with but handle with high degree of proficiency) full-sized weaponry including a top-heavy “heavy weapon” that’s a hammer or something like this with elongated shaft? Come on…

    Even if they need to be children – why weren’t they made, idk, 13 yo at the very least? They would still be behaving mature for their age but 13yo “little adults” are much easier to swallow and the whole story would make much more sense. The way it is done, however… I need to constantly remind myself that they are 8yo (since it doesn’t look like this at all) while also simultaneously trying not to think about it (because it breaks suspension of disbelief for anyone who’s had any amount of contact with actual 8 year olds)…

    Like

    1. Hmm well, I will agree on that people gave the characters who are only 8 and 10 too much responsibilities and freedom. BUT most of the freedom we see are due to the characters going incognito, and the responsibilities are something to be expected of the children of the dukes and the royal family. But let’s address the other things.

      – Klaus and Auguste are 10 not 8.
      – Klaus is a genius in hardwork. Like what Gilbert said in his lecture, Hafan people are all hardworkers and there is no curtain of talent here. And Klaus did act like his age in the first arc, but the Ruins of Visitor opened his eyes. Near death situation changed people, and he became a tiiiiny bit more mature. Him being involved in the investigation is all Eduart’s fault though.
      – Auguste’s capabilities. This is not weird. It was hinted many times in the second arc, like how Auguste lifted Erica’s heavy bag like it was nothing, how when they dance Auguste shows balance and steadiness. These are hints that Auguste trained his body since young age. As someone from the country of dragon knights, training their body since young is not weird.
      – You have had contact with an actual 8 and maybe 10 years old, I have too. But have you ever in contact with a genius child? I don’t so I also don’t know, but maybe they are more mature and more capable than you think.

      Like

      1. The other things are pretty sketchy but can be ignored with some effort. When it comes to Auguste’s case, however, that is downright ridiculous, sorry. Pretty much every dragon knight is trained from very young. And we’re not talking Auguste being able to fight off your average knight, no – we’re talking about him joining a prestigious tournament and getting through most of it with minimal difficulty. A 10 year old kid having physical abilities on par with a wimpy adult? Ok, I could buy that. 10 year old kid being able to match an average adult in a physical fight? That’s a stretch (and probably not healthy for the kid’s development) but I’d let it slide, especially when you factor in the importance of dragons. But here we’re basically talking a 10yo athlete easily prevailing over top adult athletes in an important sports event. And in a discipline that has a lot to do with strength at that…

        And all that is completely unnecessary. Imagine if MC was, say 12 in the dragon arc, her older friends 14. How much more believable would everything be.

    2. My cousin is one of what you would describe as a “tiger mom”, she disciplines her children very strictly and yes you do see this level of maturity in her kids. You kind of fear for the kids but I have to admit, she does get results. Not my taste but it works.

      Like

    3. Is it that weird? I mean my two nephews one is 10 the other is 8 and they do household chores when their mum invites us for a party or something and they have perfect etiquette, standing at the door and receiving visitors, bringing out foods and dishes from the kitchen, instructing the servants and handling kids younger than them etc. They act waay mature than their age trust me. Well, a lot of kids in my family are trained that way so it didn’t seem too surprising to me though. It all depends on how you raise them you see.

      Like

      1. There’s a big difference between what you describe and what the kids do and how they behave in the first arcs of this series, though…
        Oh, well. Fortunately we’ve reached the academy arc so it should be better now, at that age being “adult” works much better, especially with PoV perspective (frankly, I don’t think I’ve personally ever felt as mature as when I was around 15-16 – that was the peak, since then I’m somehow only getting less and less of that I-am-such-an-adult feeling as years go by).

    1. I wish we knew as well but romance isn’t exactly the main focus here given how complicated the plot is. But maybe when the main plot is over we might get an ML? Until then feel free to ship whoever you like as we all are doing, cuz everyone is always around Erica and helping her one way or the other haha.
