TV anime adaptation of Satoru Yamaguchi (山口悟) light novel series “My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!” (乙女ゲームの破滅フラグしかない悪役令嬢に転生してしまった… ) reveals the second PV, two new visuals and additional cast. It is scheduled to premiere in Spring 2020.
The series is animated by Silver Link and directed by “Ao-chan Can’t Study!” director Keisuke Inoue (井上圭介), with “Butlers x Battlers’” Megumi Shimizu (清水惠) handling series composition, and “Honey and Clover” key animation Miwa Oshima (大島 美和) designing the characters.
Female singer angela will perform the opening theme song “Shōjo no Route wa Hitotsu Janai!” (The Routes for Girls Are Not Only One). Voice actor Shouta Aoi (蒼井翔太) will perform the ending theme “BAD END”.
The series follows a young woman who was reincarnated into the body of Katarina Claes, the villainess of an otome game, Fortune Lover, that she was playing just before she died.
Her past memories are recovered after she was accidentally hit on the head with a rock while she was harassing Prince Geordo, as her prior self was infatuated with him. With the memories comes the realization that the heroine’s ending would result in either her exile or death, depending on whether she received the good or bad ending, as the villainess would repeatedly try to interfere with any romance attempts.
Katarina tries to avoid the bad endings by thinking up ways to escape death as well as taking up gardening as a potential occupation if she is exiled. She also decides to try befriending or resolving issues concerning other characters that would result in her receiving a bad ending, such as repeatedly telling Geordo that he is free to end the engagement at any time.
