Cold horror gripped my heart when I finally admitted out loud: I'm in a dating sim filled with yanderes. I quickly sat up. As much as I love the game and enjoyed the characters, there's no way in hell will I follow any of the routes. All of them lead to pain and some even death! I don't want to die or get raped! But, I don't know if I'll be forced to. There's no neutral ending, after all, and even if there was, I don't think it would be any better than the other endings. What do I do? A light bulb lit up. If I'm male, I can avoid a yandere, right? Getting transported into a dating sim is a girl's wish! But, as they say, be careful what you wish for. Our female lead, who goes by Haruka in her otome games, gets that wish. So, what's the catch? It's the game full of yandere characters and bad “good endings.” Thinking she'll go back to her world at the end of the game timeline, she decides she'll be a guy to bypass any affection. Smart, right? Silly girl forgets there is no neutral ending. She is the Main Character, and there is no escape. Updates: I try to update once every 2 days! (But now that university is a thing, updates have slowed down. TT I’m tryinggg. It’s more like every 2 weeks now, oof ;-;) Warnings: Many curse words and some violence. Oh, and since I get people constantly trashing or complaining about my MC, I’ll warn you now that she is a “pushover.” :) A great target for yanderes, if you will. So leave if that isn’t your cup of tea, thank you. Discord Server: https://discord.gg/KPKrSKb Twitter: @SkyHiLimits And if you can’t get enough of this novel, check out my extras book!

I gotta say, this story really checks off all my boxes. I’ve been looking for a female -> male crossdressing story(why are these so rare?!) and I’ve not been disappointed yet. Other than just happening to be a gender bender(this just happened to be on my list of things I wanted to read), the story has a lot going for it. The pacing is pretty good overall: not too fast, not too slow. The different events of the story happen at the right times without seeming forced. Character: now this? This is a lot of fun. The yandere character has always been fascinating to me, similar to how Haruka felt at the beginning of the story. Their pasts and personalities are usually interesting to watch unfold. This book more so than others because the MC actually goes and starts ‘fixing’ them. Kinda. She’s getting started on Ryuu at least. Tatsuya’s got the potential to be fixed as well. Buuut Yuu’s kinda a lost cause so far... *Cough* anyways! World building is the next topic! It’s what you’d expect from an otome game story, so not much I can say here. The story takes place in ‘our world’ (it’s not a fantasy world), so there’s not much to really write. Despite that, or really because of that, the world it takes place in just kinda makes sense, ya know? It’s not like some crazy fantasy world with crazy magic systems that get really complicated. Don’t get me wrong, those can be great and I actually really love them! They’re just hard to write and get into sometimes. Writing Style: this is beautiful. I love the way Author-san writes! It has a clean flow from each sentence/paragraph/chapter. The story flows and Haruka’s thoughts and reactions are just a blast to read! Overall: 10/10. If or when Author-san decides to write another story, I will almost definitely be on board with it.


Scrolling around for web novels, I was not expecting much from this novel, but I found a jewel in the haystack. I honestly love this novel. It’s so unique and different from the cliched “isekai to an otome game” novel. The writing style is great, only a few typos, the character development is amazing. The author has put in a ton of effort into these characters and the plot. Every time Haru interacts with each of the characters, I always get so excited because I never know what to expect. Their interactions are way better than what I predict, which is very rare. I loved how the author added a “potential love target” because it keeps u guessing about him. Is he really another yandere or is he a normal guy trying to protect the FL? I’m still contemplating whether he’s someone to trust or not. I think it’s cute how the author added the little twist about the FL crossdressing to not attract the love targets, but I honestly think she couldve used another method to not attract them. Not only that, but I feel kinda uncomfortable that the FL’s parents aren’t really there for her, and it isnt really explained why they’re abroad for such a long time. In addition, it’s kinda weird that the FL doesnt really care much about her previous life. Its like she didnt really care about being isekai’d to a new world. Overall, I love this novel. It kinda reminds me of “Death Is The Only Ending For The Villainess”. They are both such a cruel reality, but very unique and twisted... I really like it >:) Keep up the good work author!


I chanced upon this story and the title made me curious enough to give it a try despite being clueless about this genre. The first chapter thankfully explained clearly what the story was all about, specially for a novice like me. Since then, I haven't been able to stop reading. The characters and their back stories are interesting and the writing is wonderful...laced with humour and intrigue. The MC's inner dialogue is simply gold! The story flows really well, there's suspense and fear for the MC as well. I'm living your work and all characters except Yuu...he's really creepy and looks non salvageable. Ryuu and Tanaka can be reformed I believe, but tbey obviously have that obsessive and possessive traits as yanderes. Akira is a mystery for now but I wouldn't trust his friendly harmless facade blindly. It seems the gender of MC doesn't really matter to the targets. I'm enjoying your work and would recommend this to everyone. Good luck and keep up the amazing work!


I love this so much! She is so relatable in her reactions. I'm curious as to how she is going to deal with the capture targets moving forward. I can't wait for the rest!


So far the story line is really good! I'm looking forward to seeing her interaction with Ryuu >_< Hopefully she won't have a bad ending. 🙏🙏


I'm liking it so far, well written and builds up ******* well for later chapters, only seen first 5 chapters like, however i like the chapters so far.


I LOVE THIS STORY SOOO MUCH AND I REALLY WANT THIS TO BE A LEGIT ANIME OR SOMETHING UGHHHHH I HAVE BURNING PASSION FOR THIS BOOK!!! CONTINUE WRITING TO YOUR HEARTS CONTENT!! I always get bursts of energy to continue making art after reading this story and I really appreciate it so thank you. :)


I'm into a couple of chapters of this novel and its going pretty well. The story flows really smoothly and I barely spot any grammar mistakes which means the author either have godly editing skills or is just a really fine writer. I hardly find novels like these so it makes me really happy that I have found this among thousands of other novels. Thanks a lot, SkyHighLimits! 😄😄


This story is just awesome despite having only a few chapters. It has things I love: Otome Game, Yandere, and a MC that just wants to live away from her possible lovers but Fate ain’t having it! 🤣 I highly recommend this to others who love these kinds of stories!


Not my favorite theme, but really good in what it’s meant to be, also it seems(can’t be too sure yet) the story will go in the direction of the MC “curing” the yanderes, so if you want to see a twisted “happy ending” of the MC accepting the yandere you might be disappointed(again, this is not a problem of quality, just genre preference)


MC is mentally retarded. ..................................................................


Initially, my expectations for this story weren’t high. I was searching for a good gender-bend novel and ended up with so much more!! I love the suspense and how the characters are written (seriously can’t get enough of Ryuu). While the writing isn’t perfect and could use some more editing, I find it very enjoyable to read. Despite not being beautifully done the writing style is very lax and easy to read. the story progression has been moving at a comfortable pace and isn’t difficult to follow. Overall, I’d say this is a good read and readily recommend it to anyone who’s still on the fence. Creative concept with for the most part likeable or satisfying characters. ☺️

I'm not really good at writing reviews but i can tell you that this novel will make you fall in love with it. I really love this novel it is one of my favorites❤️


I normally don't binge read things that I'm iffy about coming into, but my god do I love this story so much! I can't wait to see how it plays out and how it keeps going.




I really love thevstory so far. Cannot wait for the next update.💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖plus the story is funny.😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😋😂😂😂😂😂😂


Here a fanart from me, What I like about your work: a)Haruka(mc) is relatable and her dialogue is simply hilarious?! b)The author makes a fascinating job in MLs' pasts and personalities on how they become yandere. Most people seem to cut short of yandere tendencies so they look the same to me. But this author doesn't make the same slip. Nuh-uh. Which placed the author, Queen in my eyes c)Most otome games have hidden chara(HC) which include this game mc isekaied. So, this give thrilled to mc and us, reader since mc don't finish the game. This gave us a dose of paranoia to doubt everyone in MC radar as HC. It likes playing "among us" but in the novel. d)The world-building is good I guess(?) Well, it otome game which most focus on capture targets and love development. What do you expect? At least, it makes some sort of sense since it was a modern high school Japan drama(that don't have mafia, secret societies, lab rat experiment, magic, quirk and superheroes/magical girl)


Omg I love this so much!! Its kinda funny and entertaining. Hahaha I love how its different from other books. I'm always so looking forward to your next chapters. Keep up the awesome work!! 😍😍❤❤


Really, I'm so in love with this book already the different Yandere characters are like off well the MC is truly a legend being a boy still the yandere notices you. It's so hard to choose one of them as every yandere is special in their own way. Well, except Yuu is scary *Shivers*
