A new trailer, visual and cast additions are here for I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, the upcoming TV anime adaptation of the light novel series by Sarasa Nagase and Mai Murasaki. The series is currently lined up for an October 2022 broadcast in Japan, and you can see how the fantasy rom-com is shaping up below.
Previously revealed cast members include Rie Takahashi (Emilia in Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) as Aileen Lauren Dautriche, Yuichiro Umehara (Kimura in Heaven’s Design Team) as Claude Jean Elmir and Toshiki Masuda (Porco in Attack on Titan) as Cedric Jean Elmir.

I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss is being directed by Kumiko Habara (I’m Standing on a Million Lives), with Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil) on series composition for the MAHO FILM production.
Yen Press publishes the light novels in English and describes them like so:
Villains Have Their Own Routes Too!
When her engagement to the prince ends unceremoniously, details of the young noblewoman Aileen’s past life come rushing back and help her realize she’s living inside the world of one of her favorite otome games—as the heroine’s greatest rival! However, her memory has more plot holes than bad fan fiction… and the only certainty is that if she doesn’t do something quick, her death is all but assured. The hero/main-love-interest can’t be relied on, so why not see what the last boss has to say?
