I picked a new series.

So I decided on my new series. I had a few contenders, all of whom I think you’ll find bear some striking similarities. If you want to find out which one I picked, just scroll to the bottom.

First contender: May I Ask One Final Question?

It’s about a villainess solving her issues through her fists. I like the story, but it gets a touch repetitive and the art isn’t great.


Second contender: Her Engagement Annulled (Crushed), The Villainess Sought the Affection of the Vagrant King

Interesting story, but it’s not really my thing for a few reasons.


Third Contender: Akuyaku Reijō na no de Rasubosu oka Temi Mashi ta

I was tempted, but I’m pretty sure someone will pick up the manga instead.

 

So, drumroll, please. The series I decided to pick up (assuming the TL who used to work on it doesn’t get back to me saying to not do it) is…

Akuyaku Reijou wa Danna-sama wo Yasesasetai (The Villainess Wants to Slim Down her Husband)

As suggested by Chibi the Stalker, the prologue was done by Mojo many moons ago, but it wasn’t continued. Mojo gave me the all clear so I’ll be starting the translation soon. The story is getting a light novel release on January 18th, and that’s when I’ll be starting to release chapters.

    1. Oh, I’m not trying to hold any claim to those contenders, if anyone wants to pick them up that’d be rad. The more villainessery the better. I have all the illustrations for the first and second series if people want them.

        1. Here’s the full synopsis I translated when I was seriously considering going for it, if you’re curious.

          “The engagement between Scarlet, a noblewoman from a ducal family and the Second Prince Kyle was suddenly annulled during the ball.

          She had been accused of harassing a girl called Tenerezza, daughter to a baron, whom the Prince doted on heavily.

          Condemned by everyone around her, forced to burden all manner of sins, she finally decided enough was enough.

          “Before I leave here, may I ask you one final question?”

          In the midst of all the boos and jeers, that good looking guy soared through the air──

          Her palm spun like a drill, the ballroom floor was stained with blood. ”

  1. I read the prologue tranlated by mojo and it says that the male lead looks like a frog.

    But then I look at the cover and he’s a cute fat kid? From a frog that causes revulsion just by looking, to a fat kid that every aunt out there would want to play with his soft looking cheeks.

    At least Camilla looks exactly like I imagined.

  2. Do you think you might pick up Akuyaku Reijō na no de Rasubosu oka Temi Mashi ta after Yaseretai is finished? Rasubosu looks so interesting!
