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’ve spoken at length about how much I love this trend of Otome/villainess style anime we’re getting lately and I really think Lastame is one of the best of the bunch. If you’ve ever watched fantasy shows and cringed at how stupid the main character acts or the usual anime shenanigans like not being able to communicate properly which would solve 90 percent of issues, good news for you. This series actually addresses those things. In fact, that’s the bulk of the show. The characters communicate and talk through their issues like normal people. It was such a breath of fresh air and I will ...

You know that very new MAL feature that allows you to see your own statistics in a fun way? There is this section called "MAL Score vs Anime Score", and to me, this show in a nutshell belongs to the criteria of "They loved it, I didn't". Now you know, thanks.

We've had like the Isekai villainess/Otome game sub-genre for like what, 3 years now? HameFura was a lot of fun (and still is to this day); AkuLas was kinda OK in spots; TsunLise was really fun mashing both real life and virtual reality at the same time; and the most recent of all, Kanojo ga ...

Its a simple show. At around age 6, MC gets her memories from past life and realizes that she is a villain princess who will bring this country to ruin (does lots of evil stuff in the process). And she wants to somehow try to save her kingdom from herself.

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 ...
