Aileen Lauren Dautriche's life changes forever on the day her engagement with the crown prince Cedric Jeanne Elmir is nullified so he can be together with Lilia Rainworth. The event triggers Aileen's memories from her past life—she has been reincarnated in an otome game as the villainess, who is destined to die in the final act. To prevent her predetermined demise, Aileen has only one option: to court the game's last boss, Claude Jeanne Elmir—the proclaimed "Demon King" and Cedric's half-brother—and marry him.

However, it is easier said than done, as Claude distrusts her intentions. Instead of giving up, Aileen adamantly tries to win his heart by helping Claude fulfill his wish: to build peace between humankind and demonic beasts. But time is running out, and it is up to Aileen to change the course of not only her tragic ending but Claude's as well.

I think you're enjoyment of this will depend on how much you like the 'villianess' subgenre. Personally I like the strong female protagonists and the humour combined with the rather chill plots.

- The art style is pretty, and doesn't have too many of the romantic flourishes I tend to find frustrating.
- This show is seriously funny.
- Unimportant duck.

"Akuyaku Reijou nanode Last Boss wo Kattemimashita" is a 2022 Issekai romance from Maho Film.
The plot is quite simple: the protagonist, as a classic Issekai scenario is supposed to be, finds herself in the world of a video game, where she finds herself in the role of a villain whose destiny is death. The task is clear: to change the plot of the game by defeating the final boss...with her love. Romance, though.

The series itself is divided into three arcs, in each of which the story changes, the characters remain the same (except that new ones appear). In my opinion, the first and ...

Akuyaku Reijou is an anime that I can only really recommend as background noise. The isekai and reincarnation genres have always been a refuge for shows with wasted potential, but even if lost potential is unavoidable, Akuyaku Reijou is utterly self sabotaging. However, I did give this show a 4 not a 0, so I'm inclined to point out a few of its redeeming qualities before I disparage it.


It can be fun, I'd say somewhere half way through the show I would confidently state that I was enjoying myself watching the show, certainly keep your brain off while watching, but once your brain ...
