I can't remember the name but I from what I remember that the FL woke up to have already eaten a few human beings maybe children as well but the ML was still alive barely. He promises himself he was going to get his revenge since he remembers all the times the FL had killed him but the FL in her old life used to work with kids (not 100% on that one) so she is nice to him and eventually uses her magic to become a kid to go to a school with the actual leads of the original story.

The FL was either a witch or demon.. she also had a group of like demons/witches who followed her not so big like 3-4 people until she disbanded it so they could be better people while she went to school.

  • Hi, welcome to the site. What colour was the female lead's hair? Jul 21, 2022 at 1:32

  • @qazmlpok a few months ago… definitely a few months before New Years.

  • Just to confirm - the FL is the main character, the protagonist, correct? And she suddenly wakes up, so this is definitely a reincarnation or isekai story? Do you recall if she explicitly wakes up in a novel or game? She ate the ML multiple times - he is immortal or regenerating, or does she eat him over multiple lifetimes? Is she an immortal? How graphic is the human-eating? Is this likely a grotesque or horror story, or does it all happen off-screen?

I think the name was The Villainess Refuses to Court (or Flirt with) the Male Lead by Kuri.

Front cover of The Villainess Refuses to Court (or Flirt with) the Male Lead

Transmigrating as the villainess of a cliché imperial manhua isn't scary, what's scary is that the male leads are all children! Not only do I have to take care of children, but I'm also being courted by one of them and being called "wife"!

    @DavidW - I also thought so at first, but this is an answer, just in need of some details. The proposed manga is "The Villainess Refuses to Court the Male Lead", and the first panel does contain a female lead, who worked with children, and someone who was "transmigrated [...] into someone who uses children as ingredients".

  • @fez Arg. I hate when the title just looks like some random sentence.

  • Isekai has gotten so self-aware. Now they even advertise that they are cliche in the cover blurb. Not that there are not some decent ones: Pokémon Legends Arceus was a cut above the usual isekai.

  • Ah, a review that says that the manga may contain pedophilia and child abuse (perhaps on the part of the nominal hero). That sounds like a charming story.
