    So yeah, I'm planning on reading "Reborn as my love rival's wife".
    The plot looks interesting, the premise looks interesting, it's basically a really interesting looking novel (I also loved the cover to it, looks so good).

    After seeing some of the reviews (yes, I sometimes read the reviews before I read the novel) it seems as though our male, now female, protagonist slowly falls for his love rival.

    So here's the winning question: does it make you fell like "eewww get me away from that gaysh8" or "that's some good shit right there, Mmmm, good shit. Now get married"

    I wouldn't want to experience it myself and I don't read novels with a female protagonist AND romance for a reason, but it's not like I'm particularly against other people liking it.
    I don't really know how the "reborn" works here, is he reborn as her from young or does he get thrown into her body while his rival is courting her? In the first case I'd say go for it, but in the second I believe the rival has a right to know that the person he's courting is no longer the one he fell for and a former male.
    A relationship built upon lies is not a real relationship.

    I'm undecided... I dislike Yaoi/Shounen Ai but if he became female I guess it would bring forth quite a few interesting internal monologues/conflicts about gender identity and that kind of stuff... I don't know, probably depends on the novel.

    I don't read the novel so I don't know how it is.
    But, depend on the quality of gender bender stories, I quite like it.
    But, if the story make me feel the ""eewww get me away from that gaysh8", then I will just drop it.

    My first response was.. That's disgusting. Second response was.. It's probably biased anyway, what I mean is that male to female or vice versa where they change their sexual preference usually they first comforming to their old gender stereotype and then overtime changed to their new gender stereotype, by that I mean I don't like it cuz their personality changed just to make the romance work. Third response was.. On the off chance that I do pick it up(not the first time I randomly pick things that I would usually never touched), I would first look at the writing style, and then judge it with extreme bias, where I would only continue reading if it pass the extremely good assertion.

    It's alright, the male (now female) lead isn't constantly talking or missing his male parts, and he acts more tomboyish than a man.

    Its more cute than "ewww" because the MC isn't really bound too much by her gender, so you wouldn't really feel uncomfortable by their interactions. Male lead isn't really overbearing either, so that helps.
