Anime Review – My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!

my next life as a villainess anime


Year: 2020
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, School
Studio: Silver Link.

Synopsis: Most people would prefer being the protagonist of a world full of adventure, be it in a game or in another world. But, unfortunately, a certain girl is not so lucky. Regaining the memories of her past life, she realizes that she was reborn in the world of Fortune Lover—one of the games she used to play.

Unfortunately, the character she was reincarnated into—Katarina Claes—is the game’s main antagonist, who faces utter doom in every ending. Using her extensive knowledge of the game, she takes it upon herself to escape from the chains of this accursed destiny.

However, this will not be an easy feat, especially since she needs to be cautious as to not set off death flags that may speed up the impending doom she is trying to avoid. Even so, to make a change that will affect the lives of everyone around her, she strives—not as the heroine—but as the villainess.


STORY

Given the current state of anime, I know a lot of people might be experiencing isekai fatigue right about now, and I thought I was too, until I started watching My Next Life as a Villainess, which I’ll be calling Hamefura for the remainder of the review. Thanks to mediocre anime like BOFURI, my expectations are pretty low for shows in this genre. A reason why I felt differently about this anime isn’t because Hamefura does anything radically different than other isekai anime, it’s simply because the show seemed fun and clever, two things I personally haven’t felt about this genre since the olden days of SAO and The Devil is a Part-Timer!.

We didn’t watch a lot of shows this season, did we? 😀

Whenever Trigger comes out with a new anime, I’m either all over it, or I’m not interested at all. There’s no in-between. Kill la Kill? All over it. SSSS.Gridman? I couldn’t care less. BNA had an interesting premise, so I gave it a chance, and my curiousity was certainly rewarded. This turned out to be pretty entertaining and had the action, comedy, and flair that I’ve come to expect from Trigger.

Yuri News Update: July 2020

Summer is officially here, and with it comes another Yuri News Update. As has been the case lately, there’s a lot to get to, and as always, if we missed something important, feel free to mention it in the comments~


my next life as a villainess season two

It makes sense to start this Yuri News Update with some good news. From what I hear, perhaps this spring season’s most pleasant surprise has been My Next Life as a Villainess, which you guys have recommended to me on more than one occasion, so it’s great that a second season was announced at the end of this season’s final episode. 2021 is when you can expect the new season to arrive, so next year is already starting to take shape quite nicely.

I actually haven’t started watching the first season yet, but since our Spring Final Thoughts post is planned for next week, I better hurry the hell up! *rushes to finish writing this post*
