Ah splendid. I didn’t think I’d see these two sweethearts here. It’s such nice art, I haven’t gotten to see it all big before so I’m glad.

Xvnom it’s your time to shine.

Good stuff here!

What's this about?

Givemeanaccount Jun 15, 2020 9:53PM

^ Lesbian office lady dies and is reincarnated in an otome game. Original game had several princes that could be romanced. She decides "screw that" and tries to romance the villainess instead. Basically "My Next Life as a Villainess" but more gay.

Here's the entire summary.

The immaculate Jun 15, 2020 9:54PM

^ woman dies (I think?) and goes into her favourite otome game as the protagonist (rei) where her favourite character, whom she loves and whom is best girl, is the villainess (claire). It’s a romance LN. I could say more but I think that’s more or less it without spoiling it.

^damn you beat me to it XD

Author approved fan TL available, official TL of the first volume coming soon(tm)

Norainhere Jun 15, 2020 11:20PM

^ Technically the fan translation is of the web novel, while the official translation by Seven Seas Entertainment is of the light novel. I'm kinda wondering what, if anything, changed between the two versions.

Azero25 Jun 15, 2020 11:28PM

the light novel officially comes out soon. already got it pre-order

SPHR Jun 15, 2020 11:46PM

I should really get back to reading the sequel. I don't know why I stopped.

the.moron Jun 16, 2020 12:13AM

^ She's still working on it. The 13th chapter of the sequel will be releasing on 18th June along with the Manga

Azero25 Jun 16, 2020 12:22AM

there's a sequel?

Jelbel Jun 16, 2020 12:36AM

^^ There will be a manga Adaptation!?

Random Wanderer Jun 16, 2020 1:03AM

Man, I hope the manga for this will be done well.

Norainhere Jun 16, 2020 1:03AM

@Jelbel Yep, the first chapter's coming out on June 18 on Yuri Hime. Here's promo art

carlosraruto Jun 16, 2020 1:06AM

The Manga can't come out soon enough.

^^Also, all the designs are on point.

Gah, I really hope it doesn't take long for the manga to get translated.

juanelric Jun 16, 2020 1:41AM

Can't wait for the manga

Norainhere Jun 16, 2020 3:16AM

^ I mean, the author posts on Twitter links to the fan-translated web novel chapters, and even went on the fan translation site itself to thank all of the readers there.

Of course, these are for the (free) web novel version; I'd imagine it'd be a different story for any potential manga or light novel fan translations.

riverFlower Jun 16, 2020 4:46AM

This was a great story, I'm glad the author's being getting more recognition for it. It was fun how it bends all the LN tropes but also heartwarming in the end just how much Rei goes through for Clare. Reading her translation site comment though I feel bad, she makes less than 1/3 of Japan's annual income? How strapped for cash are mangaka/writers usually anyway.

Hibiku1456 Jun 16, 2020 5:54AM

I'm so glad to see this here. I've been secretly hoping that some one would request this.
Bless the soul of the one who requested this and the uploader who approved it. ( ;´꒳`;)

P.S. For those who might be interested, you can see more fanarts by searching #私の推しは悪役令嬢 on Twitter.There are some great artists who make WataOshi art. (´ ˘ `)

In case anyone's curious, the official translation's title is "I'm In Love With The Villainess". If I remember correctly, Sevenseas will be releasing it some time early November.

Rye Jun 16, 2020 8:01AM

Thanks for all the info!

Lilliwyt Jun 16, 2020 8:53AM

Personally i don't think i will read it cause for one Isekai is a genre that i read so little and Otome is a genre that i don't like. Moreso that most Otome Isekai contain the word Villainness one way or the other, that either the MC is the villainess or help the villainness. I mean i have nothing against the genre but some originality couldn't hurt.

Random Wanderer Jun 16, 2020 9:10AM

@Lilliwyt: This is a rare yuri otome isekai, which already sets it apart from the crowd.

DY4Y Jun 16, 2020 9:19AM

^And this deals with actual LGBT+ stuff (e.g. it doesn't shy away from saying that Rei is a lesbian, etc), so it's also set apart from most yuri

Lilliwyt Jun 16, 2020 10:01AM

^ I mean, it's easier on a fantasy setting to deal with those kinds of things rather than in actual Japan and moreso with JK. I don't really care that much it's a yuri, i'm not a big fan of the genre.

carlosraruto Jun 16, 2020 10:15AM

Mad talk! There is no such thing as too many Isekai parodies.

yuri n wine Jun 16, 2020 10:38AM

I’ll be looking forward to this now in yuri hime instead of citrus plus

I really hope they make an anime out of this one.

Megumiaki Jun 17, 2020 3:23AM

This series is literally one of the best things I've read (though the translation of the first part is pretty clunky, presumably due to the amazing release pace of one chapter a day). The world building, the characters, the story, the way it deals with and intelligently discusses real LGBT issues; everything is so interesting and engaging. I'm so looking forward to the manga, and I'm crossing my fingers for an eventual anime!

I don't wanna sound pessimistic but given how little real Yuri got adapted, it's better to keep your hope down.Especially when it come from Isekai Otome who just got its first adaptation.

Norainhere Jun 17, 2020 4:23PM

First chapter of the manga has already been scanlated on Mangadex! The group scanlating asked to not post it anywhere else so it probably won't be coming to Dynasty Scans, unfortunately.

carlosraruto Jun 18, 2020 1:57AM

Thanks for the link!

Looking it up right now.

Does anyone ever wonder in these games if the VA's of these characters are voicing them in the isekai version of the game? Like if I'm playing a Symphogear game and get isekai'd to that world would Aoi Yuki be talking to me as Hibiki? It makes you think.

carlosraruto Jun 18, 2020 12:13PM

@thechampionmike95, I actually started wondering that while reading 'Endo and Kobayashi’s Live Commentary on the Villainess' if the game was getting new voice lines.

The immaculate Jun 20, 2020 10:13AM

^Oh damn I forgot about that. I really enjoyed it so thanks for reminding me.
