Synopsis for I’m in Love with the Villainess
Office worker Rei Oohashi wakes up one day to find herself as Rae Taylor, the heroine of her favorite otome game, Revolution. Being surrounded by attractive men vying for her attention would be any maiden’s dream, but that’s not the case for Rae. None of them can compare to the villain, Claire François, whose blonde drill-shaped ringlets only accentuate her haughty and irresistible charm. In the original story, Claire harasses and intimidates the heroine, which causes her to get close to her male love interests. But Rae has no intention of going after either of the men; Her heart is set on Claire herself. Not used to receiving affection, Claire is left at the mercy of Rae’s endless teasing. With the power of true love, can Rae successfully convey her feelings to the villain? Font: comic natalie
