I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, Vol. 1 (I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss (Manga))
About this deal
You should watch this show if you have an infatuation with the isekai/otome game genre and a thing for lord claude. Esta historia me gusta mucho y en Octubre de este año saldrá el anime, ¡así que no puedo esperar! Los personajes son cliché en este género: la villana que no quiere ser la villana, el protagonista de la historia enamorado de la chica buena y la chica buena que no es lo que uno piensa; sin embargo, tiene sus bocanadas de aire fresco y originalidad, sobre todo si no es un género al que se está acostumbrado a leer. No se lo pueden perder~ The characters are not necessarily unique, we've already seen those typologies over and over again, but the author manages to give their own twist and the result is a colorful (even though
The story is nice, rather short for my liking, but you can read it in one sitting if you want to. As another commenter said, it's very fairy tale-esque, but I enjoyed that aspect of it.
I laughed A LOT in that first quarter! Aileen is a very fun main character and was cheering for her right from the beginning! I loved her spunk and go-getter attitude to go ask Claude if he would marry her followed by all her antics. Deeply looking forward to seeing what she will do next and appreciate how she takes matters into her own hands.
Leído en inglés]: Cuando el prometido de Aileen rompe el compromiso frente a toda la escuela la devastación llega a su vida, o eso hubiera pasado si sus memorias de su vida pasada no hubieran llegado de golpe. Es entonces que se da cuenta que ha reencarnado dentro de un juego de citas que jugó anteriormente y que su vida está pronta a terminar en tan solo tres meses. Aileen tiene un plan y el primer paso es que el Rey Demonio Claude se enamore de ella, mientras que el número dos es sobrevivir. Also the antagonists (well technically heroes) I think they're really bland. Cedric is just kinda the ex character. Lilia is the standard good girl anime protagonist, and pretty predictable like YOU know that girl is hiding something hah.
Si je suis la vilaine autant mater le boss final est un manga que je m’étais acheté après avoir vu l’anime a sa sortie (fin 2022) et je me suis récemment dit qu’il était enfin temps de le sortir de ma PAL. The depth of this show is lesser than the depth of my carpet. No character development whatsoever, the only exception I can maybe think of is Keith; the demon lord's right hand man, and Levi but they are both side characters and their arcs only last 1 episode. Otherwise if there is "development" it isn't really development, it is just a random and inexplicable shift in a character's attitude, see-> the demon lord during the third arc, or prince Cedric in the final episode. The character with the most interesting concept was probably Lillia, and her motivations absolutely deserved exploration, but no, nothing. Don't expect anything in the realm of high quality writing, you will inevitably be disappointed. So. Yes, this is similar in structure to other books in the genre, but it does a good job of being distinct and OMG the hero is just PERFECT. Highly recommended if you are interested in this genre.
The plot is quite simple: the protagonist, as a classic Issekai scenario is supposed to be, finds herself in the world of a video game, where she finds herself in the role of a villain whose destiny is death. The task is clear: to change the plot of the game by defeating the final boss...with her love. Romance, though. I didn't really get the gist of it. Maybe the author wanted to say that even in the game love and friendship work wonders and solve many issues, change the fate, but most likely the anime is just a normal isekai, covered with the feelings of the main characters. Some characters are revealed, discarded, and what is timeless is the beauty and allure of the prince of darkness, Claude. By the way, I would argue with the word "darkness." After all, all the darkness is crows, furry critters, cyclops, and green-haired helpers... Seriously, they even have a fortress? A fortress for one man, two demons and beasts...that's "darkness." I’ve started a new manga series again. I’m convinced that summer is the season of manga for me, seeing as I’m lagging when it comes to reading novels. The good thing is there’s only one book out for this one. It’s a good thing because I don’t have a bunch of books to catch up on, but it’s also a terrible thing because now I’m left on a cliffhanger. I know this is having an anime soon, so my only choice is to wait for that to air…Again I think this is intriguing story wise, despite dragging a bit towards the end. But I'll talk about that later. I just had a fun time with this silly little story. And you really do want to root for Aileen by the end of the volume. A time limit is introduced so you got a "Oh shit!" feeling going on. Real sense of tension and intrigue. Also usually I don't like slow burn romance but here it's well done. The narrative doesn't force them to get together immediately for the plot. And the romance again very cute haha. And sorry I LOVE HIS HENCHMEN they're so goofy. There's a good mix of "this is a stupid silly story" and also a compotent story. There's world building established and such, that's not just a thrown together romcom. Sorry my romcoms need tomes of worldbuiling jk JK. I’m pleased with Aileen’s character development as a “villainess.” She really turned out not only to be so lovable but also a competent and intelligent woman. It was no wonder that so many of my favorite scenes throughout the series, but especially in this volume, were of her epically one-upping Lelia, the so-called heroine who turned out to be the real villainess. The more and more the story progressed, the more unstable Lelia became. Soon she was pushing for Aileen’s death and a more reverse harem ending for herself, forsaking all the good Aileen, Claude, and the others had done for the kingdom. No es la primera vez que leo esta historia, creo que la primera vez fue por allá del 2019, pero si es la primera vez que lo tengo en físico, por lo que no ha aparecido en ningún otro año de lecturas.
