I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss by Sarasa Nagase was illustrated by Mai Murasaki and published by Kadokawa Beans Bunko. Both the novels and the manga adaptation have been licenced by Yen Press, and the plot is as follows:
When Aileen’s engagement to the prince is called off, details from her past life resurface, revealing that she is living inside the world of one of her favourite otome games—as the heroine’s most formidable rival!
