I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, a romantic comedy isekai series, is airing in October


I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss is a Japanese light novel series by Sarasa Nagase and illustrated by Mai Murasaki. The anime adaptation has been announced and is scheduled for broadcast in October 2022 during the Fall 2022 anime season.

The official trailer for the anime showcases Irene, her engagement annulment with the crown prince, and her plans to seduce a demon to avoid her terrible end.

I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss is a story about an ill young girl who spent most of her life in a hospital room playing otome games–these are story-driven games targeted towards women.

However, things change drastically for the young girl as one moment she’s in the hospital, and the next, she finds herself in the middle of a scene from one of these games as Irene Loren D’Autriche, the story’s villainess.

The scene involves a banquet celebrating the end of the academy’s winter term. Unfortunately for Irene, the crown prince, Cedric Jeanne Elmeier, publicly annuls his engagement with Irene and announces his love for Lilia Rainworth, the game’s female protagonist. 

Knowing the bleak future waiting for her, she is determined to change her fate and live her life on her terms. So, Irene decides to conquer the game’s final boss–the Demon King–by making him fall in love with her. The Demon King also happens to be Cedric’s half-brother.

As her time is running out, Irene must conquer the Demon King, or else she will be subjected to the terrible ending that awaits the villainess.
