A world where wars are fought with spies.

The story of Tantei wa mou, Shindeiru. follows Kimihiko Kimitsuka, a young man who four years ago became the assistant of a mysterious detective known as “Siesta” on a hijacked airplane. Together, Kimihiko and Siesta went on mind-boggling, globe-trotting adventures while combatting a secret organization, but all of that came to an end when they were separated by Siesta’s death. In the present day, Kimihiko tries to return to an ordinary, boring life as a high school student, but things are never that simple, even though the detective is already dead.

悪役令嬢なのでラスボスを飼ってみました
Written by: Nagase Sarasa
Illustrations by: Murasaki Mai
Began publication September 2017
8 Volumes have been released in Japan to date.

Due to the shock of having my engagement broken, I was able to recover the memories of my previous life. This is the world of the otome game of my previous life, is not it? If so, then as the villainess I’ll get caught up in the battle between the heroine and the demon king and die…… please tell me this is a joke! If this is so, then I’ll avoid that death flag by conquering The Last Boss (Demon King)!

This is the story where the villainess gives the heroine, her former fiance, and childhood friend their just deserts, starts her own enterprise, increases subordinate (manservant) count, and gets loved by the Demon King.
