What I Am In Love With Villainess is About
The manga has recently gained popularity, and now fans of the show will be able to enjoy it in a whole new way.
Oohashi Rei works for a respectably sized, but routinely oppressive company; doing the same work over and over, her life is devoid of anything new and positive. However, she has one hobby that keeps her going: her passion for games. It is so strong that she still plays her favorite otome game “Revolution” late at night after returning from work.
Yep, you guessed it! She definitely gets Isekaid in the game. She is reincarnated as Rae Taylor, the game’s protagonist.
You’d think she’d be overjoyed and blushing, surrounded by the game’s three original romance routes with the Bauer Kingdom’s princes. Any maiden’s dream would be to have so many princes vying for her attention—but Rae has no interest in them! None of them can compete with the villainess, Claire François.
Claire harasses and bullies the heroine in the original story, which drives her closer to her male love interests.
Rae tries to give Claire a happy ending using her knowledge of the game’s upcoming events before the revolution destroys any chance of it happening. But how will the villainess react to her new courtship?
