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 story of a girl gamer who is reborn into an Otome video game with one huge flaw – her role is to be the villainess! She won’t give up so easily though and will try her best to avoid this fate.
