Akuyaku Reijo Nanode, known for its English title I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, is based on a light novel series by Sarasa Nagase, with illustrations by Mai Murasaki. It was first published in Shosetsuka ni Naro on May 2017, before being acquired by Kadokawa Shoten. It was then serialized in September 2017 under the Kadokawa Beans Bunko imprint.
It received a manga adaptation, with art by Anko Yuzu, which was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s seinen manga magazine Comp Ace from June 2018 to August 2019. Yen Press has licensed both the light novel and manga series in English, describing the plot as:
Avoid the bad ending at all costs! When her fiancé breaks up with her in front of the entire student body, noblewoman Aileen d’Autriche is devastated-or she would have been, if that wasn’t also the exact moment memories of her past life came crashing back! Turns out, she’s been reborn as the villainess of a dating sim…and according to the story, she’s slated to die at the hands of the demon king in three months! But Aileen’s already got a plan: Step one, get Demon King Claude to fall in love with her. Step two, live!
