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.

A fantastic comedy in which you can't help but admire Aileen, the main heroine, and one who was reborn into the world of an otome game as the villain. Does this sound familiar? The show resembles Hamefura in some ways.

The show's premise is as follows: Aileen is dumped by Cedric. Aileen makes Claude fall in love with her in order to avoid the fate of the character she was reborn as. Claude falls in love with Aileen, and the two live happily ever after.... or so that should have been the case. Aileen tries everything in her power to avoid doom flags and her fate ...

HameFura (you know, the one with the lovable dense blonde MC Bakarina Claes), MobSeku (you know, the one with the shitty MC Leon Fou Bartfort), and finally the 3rd entry in the now Isekai space that is the Otome Game sub-genre: Akuyaku Last Boss (or AkuLas for short feat. yet another blonde MC). Damn, looks like Isekai has a new winning formula that's only starting to pick up right now, but only getting more predictable as time passes.

Out of the Otome Game adaptations we've had so far, I really have to concede the fact that HameFura is the overall better handled show that we have ...

The villainess trope is something we’ve seen a couple of times now as it has slowly become more popular. I myself was questioning if this could follow up on the success of something like My Next Life as a Villainess. I must say, I think it kind of did as this was an enjoyable ride to sit through, but by all means, it isn’t perfect and can be a little bit goofy at times. I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss is a fun watch for those interested in it, but it can definitely have been improved upon.
