The TV anime adaptation of the 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… ) confirms a second season following the last episode of the first season, which aired on 21st June 2020.
A commercial has been revealed for the announcement and the second season is scheduled to premiere in 2021. A special illustration created by the original character designer Hidakami (ひだかなみ) is also revealed.
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.
