Yen Press is releasing the manga in English with the title The Second-Chance Noble Daughter Sets Out to Conquer the Dragon Emperor.


Yen Press aren't releasing the manga with that title. They are using the same title as Cross Infinite World. https://yenpress.com/series/the-do-over-damsel-conquers-the-dragon-emperor

Oh boy, here comes the drama. Mentally the MC is 18 but physically she's 12 and the adult male lead is head over heels for her. There's plot reasons for that, but it'll make a lot of people uncomfortable all the same.

I hope JC Staff delivers on this one! They've had a good track record with Shojo stuff lately.

Aside from the age thing, how is this substantially different from something like 7th Time Loop? Is it more light-hearted (a la Tearmoon Empire)?

That's kind of a complicated question. There plenty of silliness but also seriousness. There's a cute dragon god/pet thing, but the male MC might become an omnicidal maniac in the future. There's also stuff like spoiler[a yandere goddess who possesses girls above a certain age to force the male MC into being her lover] and spoiler[the girl MC's past life fiancee has sex with his sister.] Last I remember reading spoiler[They live in hiding because male MC's family wants to kill him and take over the empire.]

But then you have a scene where the girl picks up a giant boat and casually chucks it away.

Dang, this makes I'm the Villainess so I'm Taming the Last Boss seem absolutely tame!
