Author : Haiaka
Artist : Kurodeko
WN status : 128 chapters (complete), 7 side chapters (complete)
LN status :
Vol 1 - Jan 18, 2019

WN link : https://ncode.syosetu.com/n8091eb/
Translation : https://mwmtranslations.com/akuyaku-...o-yasesasetai/

Spoiler for Synopsis:


Spoiler for Usual questions:


-Not otome isekai, but uses some plot elements.
-MC is more villian-like in her emotional moments compared to similar "villianess heroines" of other works, especially when she gets angry or annoyed. Overall she's a good person though, and will fight against perceived injustice.
-Main love interest is very fat, but also very relaxed and chill; a counterpart to Camilla's bouts of anger. Alois has slight amnesia and cannot remember his past very well. Apparently it ties in with the finale.
-Weight loss plot part is quite understated. Most of plot is Camilla exploring and learning to live in Mohnton, which is very traditionalist and puritan.

The slimming down part becomes less of a focus in main story; more about Camilla learning to accept and love him for who he is inside. Other than learning about the new territory and its strange, puritan customs (apparently because Mohnton used to be criminal dumping grounds, so residents believe they must still bear the sins of their ancestors.)

Exactly! Good Japan doesn't give a X$&# about that.

Enslaving bishoujos is completely different matter! It's good japanese authors and studios doesn't care about being PC, but weak willed submissive heroines are just plainly boring. Especially if they know no better then actually worship random guy because he doesn't beat them.

Political correctness = bad
Beta wannabe authors = even worse

I notice this comes up a lot in shoujo manga.

I suppose it ties in with the idea of the gentle, feminine beauty swept up by the strong man in charge in female fiction.
Sometimes I think the authors go too far in the name of drama; they exaggerate the gentleness into timid submission, the strong man into domineering bullies.

As far as I remember that is part of what a Japanese man seeks in his partner, submissive, mentally unripe and that does not show superiority in front of man.
It is difficult to find mentally strong MC without hard, traumatic or tragic experiences

That's not how "Yamato Nadeshiko" works. You got that "doesn't show superiority" part right, but she should be superior regardless.

Do you know these homely nice perfectly respectful characters that noone dares piss off? That's the" Japanese ideal.

I do not mean the fictitious ideal.
You mean those characters that even if the opponent is an omnipotent entity, will always say something like "it's better not to make her angry"?
