I’M IN LOVE WITH THE VILLAINESS

私の推しは悪役令嬢。

by Inori and Hanagata

Ordinary office worker Oohashi Rei wakes up in the body of the protagonist of her favorite otome game, Revolution. To her delight, the first person to greet her is also her favorite character, Claire Francois–the main antagonist of the story! Now, Rei is determined to romance Claire instead of the game’s male leads. But how will her villainous lady love react to this new courtship?!

Seven Seas will release Volume 1 in print on November 10, 2020

THE SORCERER KING OF DESTRUCTION AND THE GOLEM OF THE BARBARIAN QUEEN

破滅の魔導王とゴーレムの蛮妃

by Northcarolina, Shiba

In a land of swords and sorcery, a ritual is conducted to summon forth the “sorcerer king” who will bring about ruin–but succeeds only in summoning an ordinary human boy from Earth. Stripped of his name and memories but endowed with sudden, enormous magic power, our protagonist has no intention of destroying the world. Fortunately for him, tinkering with his newfound magic results in the creation of a powerful (and beautiful) new partner…and she can keep him safe!

Seven Seas will release Volume 1 in print on November 24, 2020

HELLO, I AM A WITCH AND MY CRUSH WANTS ME TO MAKE A LOVE POTION!

by Eiko Mutsuhana and vient

“I want you to make a love potion.”

The Good Witch of the Lake’s four-year crush ended in heartbreak with a single request from the object of her affections! Wanting to increase what little time she has with Royal Knight Harij, Rose sends him on a wild-goose chase for the ingredients but gets more than she bargained for when the grumbling knight starts visiting her every day…to feed her?

This is the heartwarming story of a shut-in witch and an arrogant, straitlaced knight whose romance starts from a love potion.

Cross Infinite World will release Volume 1 digitally on June 30th, 2020

Seven Seas is expected to announce more titles on Thursday and Friday.

  1. Third novel sounds hella cute!

    And is it just me, or are we getting a lot of otome game isekai fiction these days? Is it the newest isekai trend, after over-/under-powered isekai protagonists?

    1. Not just you, we are definitely seeing more otome isekai-type light novels. I think it’s the companies trying to broaden the appeal of light novels to more female readers. Which is totally cool, because I’ve enjoyed the more female-centric light novels I’ve read.
