Eight-year-old Pride Royal Ivy suddenly recalls her former life as a fan of the otome game Our Ray of Light. While on her way to replay it, she tragically died, reincarnating as the game's final boss and firstborn princess of Freesia. Her knowledge of the game's events leads everyone to believe she has the power of precognition. But unlike the game's original princess, this new Pride does not wish to torment those around her, such as her younger sister and adopted brother.

Haunted by nightmares of her other self's atrocities, Pride resolves to protect her family and country while progressing the story. As the world around her changes, she prepares for the day she will have to die at the hands of the game's main characters. Nevertheless, before that happens, Pride will either transform her kingdom for the better or fall under the weight of her possible crimes.

I think this might one one of the few villianess shows that breaks the mold enough to recommend to people outside of the subgenre.

Regarding out protagonist, Pride. She is being terrified of turning into everything she hates. Early on its clear she has nightmares about what her 'character' will do, but unlike most other shows of this kind she really believes she's fated to bring tragedy to the kingdom and people she loves. Large chunks of the show are her setting up ways and means to protect people against her. It's an interesting twist and creates a number of flaws in her character. Personally ...

The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen,
is another Otome game/novel anime that female MC reincarnated in a fantasy world. Not as the main Heroine, but she is an evil last-boss Villainess (very strong).

It does resemble bakarina in regards to villainess + harem + not realizing that everyone loves her + saving the love interests etc.. But this show is much darker with basically no comedy/romance.

Right now, we are still in the harem gathering phase. It basically loops through a plot that roughly goes --> "introduce sad ...
