The plot of My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
The story follows Catarina Claes, a young daughter of a noble family. She bumps her head one day and regains memories of a past life as an otaku. She realises her rebirth into the otome game Fortune Lover.
In all endings of the story, Catarina is a villainess and ends up dead or exiled. The story takes on interesting turns when she tries to change her fate.
It is not uncommon to have a reverse-harem shoujo anime. But it is particularly interesting to have an isekai of sorts with a woman lead character. We look forward to the second season of My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
