The latest otome game is all the rage recently, so a regular university student decides to see for herself if its fame is well-deserved. She clears the normal mode in no time and finds herself pitying the villainess, Penelope Eckhart. Penelope is a fake―a replacement for the duke's missing daughter, the protagonist of the game.

Initially confident about clearing the hard mode as well, the woman is shocked by the sheer leap in the level of difficulty, eventually passing out from exhaustion. However, when she wakes up, she no longer recognizes her surroundings, for she has been reincarnated into the body of the villainess!

In a world where everyone seems to be out for her blood, Penelope must make wise decisions that keep her away from the death route. A tyrant prince, a suspicious magician, a nobleman from a fallen nation, or one of her nasty adoptive brothers―whose affections will she win?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

"Villians Are Destined to Die" or "Death is the only ending for the villainess" is a very well-written Otome isekai manhwa. Based on the novel, it's very accurate and sticks to the original story magnificently.

STORY | 10 | The plot in this is pretty great. Easy to follow, with plenty of cliche moments that don't really bother me as a reader. Compared to other manhwa I've read, it's unique. It's very painful and heartwrenching, with many moments that push me to keep reading. Overall, my favorite thing about this plot though is the game aspect. It's interesting as hell watching Penelope's decisions, and the turns read more

One of the best villainess manhwas out there! Penelope is one of those smart protagonists thats actually somewhat evil like a true villainess.

The whole favorability adds so much more to the story! It makes it so exciting because we get to see what each character like or dislike to increase or decrease their favorability. This way, we know the characters tastes and their personalities better.

The story is pretty true to the novel and the manhwa does a good job executing scenes.

The art is beautiful and every character is just so good-looking. Her development with each character is so natural especially her interactions read more

Villains are destined to die is probably my favourite Villainess reincarnation story. It doesn't fall into the trappings of so many other stories within this cliche and is truly able to stand out in this saturated market.

Story. The story is really interesting. It isn't the first Villainess story to involve death flags, but it's the only one which make the death flags feel like actual threats. The story also never lets you forget that this is part of a game.he only thing about the story that I'm not too fond of is the pacing, sometimes I feel like some scenes drag on for too long read more

Villains Are Destined to Die is a Manhwa that I really enjoyed. Despite it's Similarities to Otome Game no Hametsu Flag it's really unique and Lovely. To be honest I prefer this Manhwa over HameFura.

[Story] [9/10]
The story is really interesting and unique. Its about a girl who is transported to the Fantasy world of a game she played. She is now in the body of the villainess who is facing a lot of Hardships and is fighting to survive in the ruthless world
Even though people might think its the same as HameFura this Manhwa is a bit more complicated and serious than HameFura.
