“Wealthy heiress Catarina Claes is hit in the head with a rock and recovers the memories of her past life,” says the series’ official synopsis. “It turns out the world she lives in is the world of the game Fortune Lover, an otome game she was obsessed with in her past life… but she’s been cast as the villain character who tries to foil the protagonist’s romances! The best ending the game has for Catarina is exile, and the worst, death! She’ll have to find a way to avoid triggering the flags of doom, and make her own happy future! The misunderstanding-based screwball love comedy now begins!”

While details are currently scarce, the staff behind the My Next Life as a Villainess movie will reveal more details, along with the premiere date, in the future.
