The Dark History of the Reincarnated Villainess

Akiharu Touka’s isekai fantasy manga The Dark History of the Reincarnated Villainess is getting an anime adaptation. An official X (formerly Twitter) account opened along with the news, with more details to be revealed at a later date.

The Dark History of the Reincarnated Villainess first kicked off its run in the pages of Hakusensha’s Lala manga magazine in August 2018, and the 13th collected volume will hit shelves in Japan on March 5, 2024.

Here’s what the author had to say about the announcement:

“I am surprised myself by something I had never imagined. It is thanks to those who have read and supported the manga that we are able to develop in this way, and I am truly grateful for that. I will look forward to the day when I can watch the anime together with you all, while cherishing and remembering the respect and gratitude for all those who are involved in its production. Please watch it in real time!”

Yen Press publishes the original manga in English and sums up the story:

Konoha Satou has a dark history. After all, she spent her teen years writing self-indulgent fantasy romance fics-like her Dark History. But since she’s become its most despicable villainess, remembering every last detail is now a matter of life-and-death. Having avoided the first couple of death flags, Satou’s suddenly left in the dark when a mysterious stranger returns from the Lily Kingdom-a character she doesn’t recall writing in the original script. Although Yomi claims to be her ally, can Satou really trust a character she knows nothing about in such a dangerous world?
