Not an Isekai story, surprising after reading that title. Haha.
*contains minor spoilers of Vol 1*
Story: Okay so this King and Princess falls deeply in love and want to get married. Thing is, the unpopular sister of the Princess, is given to the king as well, as part of the deal. Her name was Fie. Due to misunderstandings, everyone hates Fie and she's locked away. So would anyone miss Fie if she ran away? Thus the second path of her life begins, as a knight-in-training. While pretending to be a boy!
It all sounds really good. And it was, at first. A girl training as
a knight, she's weaker than others, but agile. Not a fitting style for medieval fighting, but it works for her. Then the typical "shoujo" story turn came and made it obvious it will be much drama later on. The identity of her boss is non other than... The King, the man who married her sister, and locked Fie away without ever meeting her. (revealed to readers early on)
Art: It's pretty good. But it's a light novel, so art is a tiny part of the book.
Characters: The Main Character is an interesting girl. She's not gonna let herself get beaten by others, and will fight for her freedom. Along with her work friends, it's nice mix of characters that makes this story easy to follow. Though it has the typical jerk characters that you see in shoujo stories.
Enjoyment: So, why didn't I enjoy it? I don't like the dramatic "twists" in how it reminds me of shoujo stories. Why do I keep mentioning shoujo? It's just how the story resembles shoujo manga with some story events and characters. Like how the King just happened to like Fie, when pretending to be a boy. But he hates the real Fie, why? Rumors. I liked the story as a whole. If they only toned down the drama and focused on Fie being a knight-in-training it would be a lot better.
+ Interesting story about a girl trying to be a knight (while cross dressing)
+ Most characters are well written, both adults and kids
- Exaggerated drama.
