Since all the stories have separate authors & artists, I wonder if this is a novella collection turned into manga?

I Wanted To Create A Story That Would Be Included In An Otome Game Villainess Yuri Themed Anthology, But My Original Proposed Title Failed To Measure Up To The Minimum Length Criterion, So I Was Forced To Add Another Two Paragraphs Of Unnecessary Verbiage That More Or Less Summarized The Entire Plot In Order For It To Be Accepted For Publication.

It's Rather Hilarious How Industry Saturation And Rampant Consumerism Has Taken Us All The Way From Short, Punchy, Memorable Titles To Compressed Wikipedia Articles, All In The Interests Of Helping Folks Pick A Story (That's The Title Of My Otome Isekai Novel About Media Dynamics, Btw, And Yes, The Stuff In The Brackets Is Included).

Disappointed...

So, only 2 out of 5 stories are really yuri. That's kinda disappointing.

The one who wrote that synopsis needs to be fired

They'll probably be promoted with how well it was able to bring in the yuri crowd without explicitly promising yuri. If the synopsis given is an accurate translation of the original from the publisher, then yeah, it and the anthology's title are very clearly yuri-bait.

^Not to mention that it's lying about all the stories having happy endings, for some of the characters at least.

The main character and her friend were happy in the end in that one, and the scheming bitch got what she deserved, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

All 5 chapters are here, but it still says Ongoing. Are there end of volume extras coming?

I'm also pretty disappointed. I was excited for some yuri isekai stuff, but... only the first story was really yuri since it seemed like the yuri was thrown in at the last second in the second story and then the next stories don't even bother trying. I mean, I didn't bother with the last two stories 'cause of the tags, so I'm not too disappointed, but I still am disappointed. At least there's I Favor The Villainness and the Magical Revolution one, clearly the superior yuri isekai stories (also the only isekai things I've read or watched other than these things, so I guess they're my favorites by default).

the first one was good, the second one was better and the last one was awesome but just lacking a yuri ending.

3 was good but doesnt really belong in a yuri anthology and 4.... 4 was going so well up until the super lazy and half-assed het ending that really came out of nowhere story wise.

Well, I feel sorry for poor old scheming bitch-chan. She gets reincarnated as the heroine of an otome game (replacing the original heroine, who abdicated her responsibilities in order to become the villainess's sidekick) and proceeds to enjoy her new life to the fullest, only to be cruelly thwarted in her ambition of creating her reverse harem by Villainess Junior (who doesn't even give a shit about Prince Eugrid or any of the other capture targets), and ends up having an appointment with Jack Ketch. I bet you if she had her time over again, she'd jump out of the way of that truck pretty sharpish.

For what it's worth the fifth story seems pretty good
