Villainous Daughter Aims for the Last Boss


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

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.

ohohohh, my time to shine has come! I've read over 80+ chapters of this story with google translate!

firstly, eileen is cool! She's a cool female lead! I admire her!

secondly, I really like the main couple's interactions! They are cuteeee! I ship it, ufufu!

in general, the story is not too overcomplicated, but reading it definitely makes me want to find out more about the development and the couple wheee!

the story continues even after the main couple gets together, currently there are 3+ arcs.

Was not worth the read.

The premise started off well but began to drift. What started as cute prods and jabs from the antagonists (Cedric, Lilia, and Ma) ends up being ridiculous and almost omniscient harassment. They cobbled together with a slowly degrading translation quality makes it an overall frustrating read. By the end of the story, the concept has lost most of it's original appeal, the rules set by the author are blatantly ignored, and there isn't much satisfaction in the resolution.

Real talk:... more>>

What started as cute jabs and minor political manuevers turns into Cedric declaring she'll be his consort, abducting, then attempting to r*pe her. Lilia blatantly attacks Beelz unprovoked, and the "treaty" just gets ignored whenever humans decide to ignore. Keith sold a bunch of monsters into s*avery for reasons, and it's roughly laughed off because the monsters "agreed" to it.

Look, no one suffers any consequences for anything they do. Cedric becomes second prince. There are no consequences in this story.

Why doesn't this get a higher rating than it should? I love this novel, funny yet not too overly quirky. There are hundreds of isekai novel out there, mostly with the same theme, but this novel is a breath of fresh air for me. The female lead is funny and stubborn, kept trying to hopelessly seduce the last boss and miserably fail to do so. Ahh, can't wait for more translated chapters. I will diligently wait for the manga to be translated as well..

The start was promising, but eventually many aspects of this novel starts to deteriorate after a few chapters. The dialogues are often incomprehensible and confusing since you can't tell who's talking half the time and what they say sometimes doesn't even make sense. The author also doesn't do any proper research since an Emperor is ruling a kingdom instead of a king. At first I thought the kingdom is a vassal state of an empire but turns out the author is referring the emperor as the ruler of the kingdom.

The... more>> pacing also became very slow at the middle part of volume one since there is next to no progress made towards the main story arc. Luckily, the pacing eventually picks up again and you're not trapped with filler chapters that pretends to be main story chapters.

However, the reason I rate this novel so low is because how it handles antagonists and how it pretends the protagonists had a huge victory even though most antagonists only get punished very little in comparison to the atrocities they commit.


The crown prince Cedric, for example, committed infidelity, false accusation, breach of contract, breach of the peace treaty, assault and battery, attempted r*pe, and is basically the role model for tyrants and incompetent rulers. It was one thing if he committed all these towards a random commoner but I find it hard to believe that he's still fine after doing all these to the daughter of the most prominent duke in the kingdom. And the fact that's his willingness to mu*der another member of the royal family for the throne got ignored is also absurd. What's more ridiculous is that his cohorts that are of far lower standing than him managed to get away scot-free.

While Cedric gets demoted to second prince, Lilia gets to keep her engagement to Cedric despite her low standing and many crimes she committed with and also without Cedric. Max, the nobody that's not even a knight doesn't seem to get punished at all while in reality he'll probably be executed as a scapegoat to save Cedric's ass and preserve the "imperial" family's reputation. But nope, having their plan foiled is punishment enough, so the author decides.

Edit: Wait scratch that, the prologue of volume 2 reveals that Max got promoted to a Holy Knight. Lol wtf?


The main problem of this novel is the plot armors vs plot armors thing it has going on. The protagonists and antagonists both have plot armors so the status quo doesn't really change too much. The antagonists are still fine even after they willingly jeopardize their own future because the author probably didn't want to come up with an entire new cast of antagonist. Couple this and the fact that everyone that are against the protagonists are the biggest scumbags that humanity has to offer, and some of the protagonists' allies are borderline scumbags as well, you'll actually feel more tired than entertained since all you get from reading this is frustration and disgust. And the fact that that the protagonists just decide they've won after foiling the antagonists' plans and proceed to let them go doesn't help either.

I rate this 1/5 doing evil stuff is fine. <<less

If feel betrayed, it's one of the novels were every thing feel great and you infest your feelings in it then the author will throw some shitty cliche at you just because he don't want the novel to end.

Author: the main couple are getting close and there is no way for further development and without them no one will bother reading this novel, but I don't want to stop writing. I have a great idea let make The ML lose his memory by illogical magical incident, and conveniently only lose memory of the time he spend with the MC, O my god I am genuies - OR AT LEAST THAT WHAT HE SOUNDS LIKE IN MY MIND.

Ch42: The MC should have kicked the 2nd prince between his legs during the attempted r*pe since the MC chose not to retaliate afterwards (just stripped of the title of 2nd price as crown prince ?) . I feel that her move is so.... s*upid. And publicizing the wrong doings of the 3 could strip them off of their position. Also, from the evidences she could use the power of their ducal house + being neice of the queen dowager to punish accordingly the 3. ???

The story is okay (idea... more>> is unique, but the construction is common) , though not truly good and not really bad <<less

The villainess type character remembers her past life during her conviction event. Her current world is that of an otome game she used to play. Her engagement with prince charming is broken and she realizes she will die if events follow the original otome game plot. So far, so clichéed. The villainess (Eileen/Irene) decides to change the future by proposing marriage to the Demon King.

As of chapter 4 Eileen has met the handsome Demon King, Claude, and his two male followers, Keith and Beelzebub. There is no insta-love and Eileen... more>> is showcased as a "strong female character" (whether this will keep up remains to be seen).

It is hard to describe, but the logical reasoning of the writer is similar to Japanese management-style novels or Japanese novels which feature politics. Because of the clichéed opening I was reminded of Common Sense of a Duke’s Daughter. Hopefully there will be more about the handsome Demon King and less clichées later. <<less

I really love the story! As of now, the only thing I hate is the father's personality. And the douche prince. Along with the so called heroine.

It's very nice to find a story where the MC is a capable (OP) woman ... more>>

I mean, with that set of followers, it's very clear that she has a very good leadership. Yeah, I can't wait for the prince to get wrecked.

, with a very unique personality that actually makes the novel funny.

The Demon King is so mmm handsome,

and it's really helpful that his emotions change the weather, since with that poker face of his, it's very hard to guess what he's thinking/feeling. It's fun guessing what could be the emotion behind those phenomena too!


It's a fresh read, since the MC has her own strong personality, and isn't like any Isekai Novels where the MC is immediately "Oh! I'm the villainess, for now I should just accept my fate and live humbly!" And then have men swooning for her after her change. Yeah, I've gotten tired of those harem stuff.

Can't wait for more chapters! Recommended if you want a MC with a very noble-like, headstrong, and manipulative (little)

but it only works on Beelzebub and the other demons, right?

personality. <<less

Translation was decent at first but then kept dropping in quality until it became a complete mess no better than straight up MTL. Often it's hard to understand who is speaking, or what they are even saying so I'm dropping this.

I read it because it was highly rated, but it became increasingly disappointing for the following reasons:

    1. World is pretty dumb in general.
    2. FL gets away with everything, in regards to the demon lord.
    3. Unlimited power for demon lord, powers don't seem very demonic tbh
    4. Why does it being a transmigraton matter? It seems the original inhabitant of the body was pretty good at everything, only problem was they loved the dumb prince
    5. Original owner of body "apparently" bad at everything. Except she had started her own business, exceptionally pretty, had lots of good connections, etc
Basically the world is completely incoherent. Even before transmigration, she was the super special character that wasn't discriminating against the poor and was upholding justice, all the other nobles are so conceited. Very Mary Sue-ish

Isekai? Check

Villainess Incarnation? Check

Badass MC? Check

... more>> Good Quality Story + Translation? Absolutely Check

The Demon King is actually not that bad? Heck yeah check.

Seeing all of this and more, what is there not to love? Well, the main antagonists maybe, but I'll admit, these antagonists were written in a very well-written way that for all that they're kind of shallow, they're actually cleverly done.

The MC is badass, no contest on that, and the ML is also a badass, handsomely beautiful as well. The many good points of this story are centered around the characters. There's hardly ever a dull side-character, and even background characters are written well! The drama is also great, as well as the romantic development, most especially the character growth with a lot of characters

All in all, if you love these Otome Villainess type of stories, you're going to love this one greatly. There isn't much I can compare this with, and I honestly feel like it's the most well-done and unique one so far.

Go read this. (C1-c42 cover the whole first part of the story and is almost complete in a way so it's kind ofof perfect way to read this story)

And the manga as well. <<less

This is. 3.5/5 for me. It's a typical otome game villainess story that wants to avoid death flag but instead of distancing herself from capturable targets she wants to marry one to survive. I actually like Irene's guts and her modern independent vibe although she sometimes transform into a shy lovesick girl.

Claude's innocence in love is also adorbs and he's built to be perf with a bit of ✨darkness✨ on a cute scale.

Reason why I'm dropping this when I'm almost done is because it just keeps on getting repetitive you... more>> know? Each part/volume signifies a start for another season in the orig otome game with a new set of characters. It's the same pattern. Irene collects his new batch of guys, turn the villainess into her ally and prevent them from being evil, unintentionally charm the last boss, defeat the heroine turned antagonist, solve the problem. That's all she does each volume and it gets tiring. I'd say, it's unnecessarily stretched but whatevah.

Also kudos to the translator (Ms [?] Empress) her site has cute design hehe and also interactive. Her tags always makes me laugh.

I call dibs on baby Bel ♥️ <<less

-I came here from the manga & I can't say how much I love this story
-The FMC is really strong & determine. Eventhough she reincarnated & has a bit of memories from her previous life, she solve most of her problems through her own skills she develop from her queen training & the support from her talented aides that she gathered.
-I think she's similiar or a bit better than Iris from common sense of the duke daughter.. Maybe?
-And the ML, the Demon King!, I dont know why but he's really is cool & better than that crown prince
-His personality is also reasonable to his circumstances
-But what I like the most is that despite the demon king tsundere ness & cold attitude, he's true feelings tend to show by affecting the surroundings especially the weather.
which I somehow find it amusing and sweet ??

This is a delightful story. Well worth reading. While the setup is one we've seen before, it has greater depth of characterization than most 'reincarnated villainess' novels, and a charming romance. Reccomended.

This is one of my favorites. The story was cute, funny, and interesting.

While this is a reincarnation novel I don't feel like it focused as much on that as other novels. Instead the focus was on the story and characters, which I very much liked.

Some reviews have mention bad writing and translating. I have to disagree. I think Empress did a fantastic job translating. In addition, the authors other work has become one of my favorites as well, so I find the writing to be quite good.

I just finished the first story (first Arc), and I came from the manga version.

What I need to say is this novel is definitely one of the best reincarnation/otome game story.

... more>> It was not just the plot that was better than the other story of the same genre, the Characters, too, are so like-able.

Our MC is not your annoyingly s*upid Marie Sue kind of character. She is brave and clever. Our ML is cute, somehow. Their relationship development was sweet fufufu~

The manga version was a fun read, but the novel version was sweeter.

Anyone who likes isekai, fantasy with cute demons, noble/royalty, great MC and ML, nice plot, this novel is definitely for you. <<less

I think this is one of the most aspiring villainess novel I have ever had the pleasure of reading --- no it IS.

It has an MC that doesn't change and simply finds other ways to better her situation. She bulldozes her way into the ML's person without an ounce of dishonesty -- these types are actually my kind of MC, that is why I like it so much.

Translation is good if not a few bad grammar here and there but only so few that I'm nitpicking at it.

Highly recommend reading,... more>> you'll be pulled in no time when you start reading. That's the kind of story it is. <<less

An amazing heroine who takes things into her own hands and doesn't leave it to others to protect her or help her out!! The only thing that confuses me a little is the part about her past life and how it played absolutely no role in her current life except the knowledge of the game. Other than that, I really enjoyed her intelligence, persistence and strength!
