When, after her sudden death, Rinko Hanasaki is reborn as Raeliana McMillan, she is not sure whether to curse her luck. Raeliana was a minor character in a novel Rinko read, and as the eldest daughter of a nouveau-riche baron, she led a carefree life until her unfortunate demise at the hands of her fiancé, Lord Francis Brooks. To avoid her destined fate, Raeliana is determined to end her engagement with Francis.

However, when Francis refuses to break things off, Raeliana decides to seek help from someone of higher standing and approaches Duke Noah Wynknight—the novel's male protagonist. Using her knowledge of the plot, Raeliana captures the duke's interest by proposing a deal: she will not expose his secrets if Noah agrees to act as her fiancé. Little does she know that getting involved with a duke who only shows his true colors around her may lead to more than she bargained for.

"Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke's Mansion" is a delightful anime that brings a fresh perspective to the isekai genre. Unlike many other series this anime takes a mature approach with its characters, centering around characters with more life experience.

The premise follows Rinko Hanasaki, who finds herself reincarnated as Raeliana McMillan in a world she once only knew through a novel. As the eldest daughter of a nouveau-riche baron, Raeliana faces the challenge of changing her predetermined fate, which was met with an unfortunate end at the hands of her fiancé, Lord Francis Brooks. Determined to forge her own path, Raeliana's journey takes a ...

Imagine watching a great political intrigue show, like LotGH, but every second episode it would switch to being a generic high-school romcom. That is kind of how this show feels to watch: I was blown away by the complexity of the negotiation scenes, and the main character must use her special abilities with skill and nuance, instead of being completely overpowered. It felt great to watch her be so smart about everything, unlike so many other isekai MCs. But then came the romance scenes, where she showed no more intelligence than an oblivious high school romance MC, which felt incredibly frustrating. The show tries to ...

Well. Like a lot of people I knew the story of Raeliana since the webtoon came out. I didn't really loved the story because it was quite slow, but still, it was good. When I heard about the news of an anime adaptation, I was already picturing most of it : way too few episodes to talk about the whole story, poor budget, and bad animations quality.

I was right. It is just one of these anime from those waves of "animes with 12-13 episodes and tasteless". (I'm kinda sick of them, please bring back the time were the animes were like 24 episodes for the ...
