I’m in Love with the Villainess, volume 1

By Inori

Inori’s 2019 I’m in Love with the Villainess, Vol. 1 is the first volume in their I’m in Love with the Villainess light novel series. Illustrations are by Hanagata. The translation is by Jean Yamazaki.

While many people in her position might be concerned about how she got there — was it Truck-kun?1 Did a stack of books crush her? — Rei has well defined priorities.
