Sarasa Nagase’s light novel series, I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, was illustrated by Mai Murasaki and published by Kadokawa Beans Bunko. Yen Press has licenced both the novels and the manga adaptation, and the story is described as follows:
When her engagement to the prince is called off, details from Aileen’s past life resurface, revealing that she is living inside the world of one of her favourite otome games—as the heroine’s greatest rival! Her memory, on the other hand, has more plot holes than good… and the only certainty is that if she doesn’t act quickly, her death is all but certain. The hero/main-love-interest can’t be relied on, so why not see what the last boss has to say?
