[Recommended Watch] “The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke’s Mansion” Is A Spring 2023 Must See

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting

The Spring 2023 Anime Season is upon us y’all and what I suspect to be a must-see this season is The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke’s Mansion, which is set to release on the 10th of this month. There are several reasons why, but what I think makes this a must-see is the situational comedy that our title character, Raeliana, finds herself in throughout the course of the manhwa, which will certainly make for a hilarious and dramatic anime.

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke’s Mansion is one of those transmigrated stories with a little bit of everything–and I do mean everything as this work sets the bar for what seems typical in “I’ve been transmigrated into a book” type of story. In the comic version, our female lead faces romance, a murder plot, divine powers, a look at complicated social-political states, and so much more–all while hitting comedy beats that will leave you with at least one thing to chuckle at in just about every chapter. Don’t let the dramatic trailer fool you–I suspect the anime will do much the same in terms of bringing in a good laugh if not with dialogue than by sheer character involvement!

I don’t want to spoil the series for those that haven’t read it yet, so I can’t give specifics, but I will say that I find this work stands out among the slew of other stories with a similar premise simply because of Raeliana’s approach to the ridiculous progression of her life in a fictional world. She can’t believe some of the situations she finds herself in, but also can’t ignore them, and that just feels like the realist part of this story.

One thing I am looking forward to in this adaptation based on the trailer is that I suspect we’ll be getting some beautiful art adaptations to the setting. The comic holds a somewhat simplified look in early chapters that would not be typical in animated projects, and I can’t help but feel that it will add to the romance aspect of the story (because mood can be dedicated a lot by setting).

From what I understand, viewers will be able to watch this new series on Crunchyroll when it releases in a few days. Meanwhile, you can start reading this completed manhwa now on TappyToon, where it is officially licensed in English. I hope you will check it out and let me know your thoughts on the series!
