Otome Gēmu no Hametsu Furagu Shika Nai Akuyaku Reijō ni Tensei Shite Shimatta… (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!) is an oddly long name, but trust me, it has only 12 episodes and it’s not that odd when you know how light novels work. 🙂

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! follows a young girl who accidentally bumps her head and regains memories of her past life as an otaku. She quickly realizes that she was reborn in the world of Fortune Lover, one of the games she had used to play in her previous life. Unfortunately, the character she was reincarnated into is the game’s main antagonist!

Misato Kurihara has lived her whole life as a loner, without the experience of having a normal life because of her high intellectual capacity. However, her life takes a drastic turn one day, when she dies and gets transported into a divine realm to be reincarnated and granted one wish. She wishes to get a life where she can be a normal, average person and experience ordinary life.

Instead, she gets reborn as Adele von Ascham, a noble daughter that possesses magic powers that are in no way average. Still not giving up on her “regular life wish”, she leaves her comfortable home and enrolls at a hunter school in a faraway kingdom using a different name. Despite all her efforts, it seems like it’s going to be really difficult to hide her overpowering potential!
