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

At the age of eight, Katarina, a girl of noble birth in another world, has an accident that unlocks her memories–of playing an otome game that’s exactly like the life she’s living now. There’s one problem: she realizes that she’s playing the role of the villainess, and only bad endings await her! What will it take for her to “break the game” and live a happy life?

None of the characters are really that interesting. For a bit, Katarina was pretty engaging, with feir tomboyish and crass streak, but once fe turned fifteen, any personality fe had was overshadowed by feir denseness. By that point in the story, fe'd already spent seven years constantly telling femself that fe must avoid the bad end. Ironically, this made fem too paranoid and blind to notice that fe's already avoided it because the various love interests are now interested in fem. Fe shows extreme, unwavering fatalism. In order for the plot to move forward (and to be fair, the plot is pretty interesting), fe needs to be completely unable to recognize that the boys around fem are interested in fem, so denseness becomes feir primary character trait. Fe's so dense that it's a bit funny, but it also destroys fem as a character. At best, fe's a walking joke. That's not to say that fe's not still entertaining though. The other characters all appreciate how fe looks them straight in the eye and is honest with them; it makes them feel valued and understood. I was genuinely surprised that the manga didn't end at chapter 22, since at the end of that chapter it seemed like everything up to that point had been tied up in a neat little bow and the story didn't feel like it had anywhere else to go. So far, the chapters after that have...continued. And there's recently been some developments which indicate that this new story arc may be dealing with the ascension to the throne and a power struggle between the princes. It's still alright and sorta cute, and Katarina's quirky lack of common sense are still the highlight. [Reviewed at chapter 29]
