My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Reading for the Game Player

As the older sister to three brothers I’ve watched them for hours play countless video games and actually have even loaded up a character or two. So when I saw the humorous premise of My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! vol 1 I knew I had to check it out just for old times sake.

Did My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! satisfy this Fangirl’s nostalgia?
While I know about games it’

Reincarnation as an otome game villainess. I love the art style and the story. The characters are sweet and it’s a little funny. Katarina is trying everything to save herself from death or exile, she’s oblivious to what’s actually going on and how many hearts she’s capturing. Favourite character is Nicole, although I do like Gerald’s attempts to be subtle.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! stars Katarina Claes, the rich and spoiled daughter of Duke Claes. Or at least we're told she was spoiled - at the start of the volume, Katarina is 8 years old and has just hit her head, prompting her to remember her past life as a 17-year-old otome game fan from our world. She was somehow reincarnated as the daughter of a duke in a world where magic exists.

As the story progresses, she gradually remembers other important details...like the

A teen girl gets reincarnated into a new life, which is when she finds out, at the age of 8 in the new body, that it resembles the otome game she was playing before she died in that previous life. As the game and her new life match up detail for detail, she realises that she is in the life of the main villain in the series, and if everything went as in the game, the only two fates for her are exile or death. So begins her campaign to revamp the path of Katerina Klaes, so that she either escapes ...more

Isekai and otome combine in 2019’s manga My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Vol 1 written by Satoru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Nami Hidaka. This is the manga adapatation of a light novel of the same title, publishing by J-Novel Club, and is set for an anime adaptation during the Spring 2020 season.

A high school girl winds up being reincarnated, not as a hero in some other world, but as the villainess from her favorite otome visual novel. Catarina Claes is the daughter of a

Apparently this manga is based on a romance game. I'm not familiar with that at all, but I do love reverse harems, and this definitely delivers. It's one hundred percent over-the-top ridiculousness, and I'm here for it.

At first, I was really thrown. In the opening scene, the main character, a 17-year-old, dies, only to awaken in the body of the villain of the game she'd been playing, only at 8 before the game begins. She immediately begins plotting how to survive being the villain, which mostly

This is a series that I discovered on Tvtropes. I find a lot of fun stuff over there. We tropers like documenting things and this one is new (to me at least). I will examine Plot, Character, and Polish before assigning a grade. Also, I should mention that this review is specifically for the manga adaptation of the light novel.

PLOT

While the premise is simple enough, someone from contemporary real-life Japan inhabiting a role in another world, it becomes more complicated. Several twists are

Not as good as the novels, mostly because we don't get anyone but Katarina's thoughts, but still a whole lot of fun.

I was waffling a bit as I read this volume, but I have to say the positives definitely outweighed the negatives. This was a fun, adorable isekai with a lovable, enthusiastic leading lady and her adorable friends and the "capture targets". I understand this doesn't say much, so let me break down the positives and negatives to explain my thoughts.

The Positives:

1. Katarina is an absolute delight! She may not be the most deep/interesting female lead, but as I said before, she's lovable,

Today's post is on My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Volume 1 by Satoru Yamaguchi and Nami Hidaka. It is 230 pages long and is published by Seven Seas. The cover the main female character Katarina and the two princes on it. The intended reader is someone who likes shojo manga, comedy and isekai manga. There is no foul language, no sex, and no violence in this manga. The story is told from third person close of Katarina. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

THIS!!!!! THIS IS SO GOOD!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!

I give up on trying to sound like a professional reviewer (actually I gave up a while ago) but this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is everything I wanted without knowing I wanted it!!! Just a lovely, wholesome story, the best isekai ever made, about a girl who just ends up with everyone in love with her simply because she is incredibly kind -- even if that kindness springs out of her desire to not die her inevitable untimely death which she only knows about

I think I have fallen for the main character the way everyone else in this series has, and she's supposed to be the "villain!"

Katerina hits her head and remembers her past life as a Japanese high school student who had an obsession with otome games, specifically the one she's just been reincarnated into. That would be great except for the fact she's reincarnated as the villain who suffers terribly later on in life either by death or exile. And so, Katerina begins a plan to disrupt everyone's

I started reading this manga online, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the physical copy.

Kat is hilarious, She doesn't act like a proper young lady and when her mother gets on her, it's hilarious. I cannot stop laughing when this happen. She'll never learn, between her farming here and there, as well as her throwing things at her fiancee, and her climb trees. Lol she is a an exciting being being of her own.

I also love how air headed she is, lol she doesn't understand that the people she

The protagonist is really entertaining in her ditzy cobbled together way. I like that in comparison to other isekai genres, she is not being reincarnated to safe a kingdom, or the world, but is just actively trying to avoid her own death. I burst out laughing during some of the scenes, and I have a feeling the light novel version of this would be better because you would probably get more of the inner dialogue, but the manga does an excellent job portraying the inner struggles that the ...more

¡Es lo más divertido que leí en tanto tiempo! Nuestra heroína tiene una personalidad tan extravagante que no te sorprende que todos los "target" del otome game en que se encuentra se hayan enamorada de ella.

El estilo de dibujo también es agradable, la historia es atrapante, las risas imparables y lo único "triste" es que el manga sale mensualmente :(

Estaré esperando por leer más capítulos de este manga tan increíble.

it works as a manga well but I think it losses a bit when you cut out how the other characters interpreted the events. But it is fun to see the characters art on more than just a few pages like in the light novel still love Katarina's birthday chapter.

Really entertaining series. It's full of humor and a good plot. You can definitely see where the series is heading but that doesn't take away from the story itself!

I'm looking forward to the next volume!
