Story Role/Play Isekai

Formula: MC is born into/reincarnates into a fantasy world, usually one they've previously interacted with (usually in their past life). This must be a character that already existed in the world (I.E.: These people actually have parents and they're not explicitly avatars created from nothing). The most common goal of these protagonists is to avoid possible death flags, and they often tend to attract harems without knowing, even if they were reincarnated into someone who was originally a villain/villainess. Some protagonists have Cheats, though most are just trying to survive based on the knowledge they have from their past life. Name was changed to remove some confusion.

I had no idea there were that many villaness stories. I was not expecting to see the same story 200 times when I clicked on the list.

stardust2222 Dec 16, 2020

I have a suggestion read 

  • <h1>I Became the Hero’s Mom</h1>
Redcutepanda Dec 12, 2020

i love your list i always come to your lest to check what there is news of great manga <3

Gameriuxlt Oct 9, 2019

Nice list my only issue is with the naming, "Role Isekai" I was expecting something like isekai where mc has specific roles like blacksmith, alchemist, doctor, farmer, w/e

but all stories on the list are just about being reborn as a Villainess and a name like "Villainess isekai" or something would be more fitting.
