    Name: Shini Yasui Kōshaku Reijō to Shichi-nin no Kikōshi (Deathbound Duke's Daughter)
    Why It Should Get Picked Up: The novel has a very intriguing plot which differs from the usual novels of its genre. It has already been almost 70% translated, but unfortunately, the translator has not been responsive for nearly two years. The raw had been on hiatus until recently and has now resumed and continuing at a steady pace. A strongly fantasy themed novel, it has plenty of actions, suspense, drama and dark undertones, somewhat reminiscent of Harry Potter in terms of world-building yet quite different. The vast lore and world-building behind this work makes it a fascinating read. The novel used to have a large fanbase while it was still being actively translated, so it would be great so see it being picked back up. More importantly, it has received a manga adaptation so the novel's reader base is steadily increasing.

    Description:

    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, since I have remembered the memory of my previous life, I will make sure that kind of thing does not happen.

    In my previous life, I was harassed immensely by an irrationally angry yandere man who thought I was in love with him.

    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—!?

    i almost got a heart attack (notreally) i thought its finally completed.
    edit: I notice the author himself went into burrow for more than 2 years to search for ideas? then lets hope the translator himself is the same. i mean its not really that big of a deal if TL did the same thing right? right?

    Yeah, the author is back now, updating again. But unfortunately @aceclover95 has been MIA for almost two years now. I have tried contacting her a few times but no response.

    thats unfortunate, this novel is too poetry? i mean theres a bunch of words difficult to translate. lets hope someone capable and caring enough picked it up.
    ngl i kind of forgetting the plot. i remember at least the ending with Erika and her brother in the library or whatever that dimension being called is.
