"My Next Life As A Villainess" to Continue In New Movie
Fans of the popular anime series My Next Life as a Villainess will soon get to see Katarina Claes on the big screen.
A new teaser trailer confirms that a film adaptation of My Next Life as a Villainess is in the works. While the teaser provides a preview of what to expect in the movie, details about the story, cast, creative team and premiere date are scarce; however, additional information will reportedly be released in the near future.
Adapted from the light novel series of the same name by Satoru Yamaguchi and Nami Hidaka, My Next Life as a Villainess first aired in Japan on Tokyo MX and ran from April 5 to June 21, 2020. The anime was animated by Silver Link (The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as Aristocrat, The Misfit of Demon King Academy) and was directed by Keisuke Inoue (Ao-Chan Can't Study). A second season aired earlier this year.
The story follows Katarina, the young daughter of a noble family, who discovers that she was an otaku in a past life and has been reborn as the villainess in the otome game Fortune Lover. Using the knowledge from her previous life, she endeavors to overcome the game's programming and avoid being killed or exiled.
Both seasons of My Next Life as a Villainess can be streamed on Crunchyroll.
