Here we go again with the red-haired and green-eyed villainess, this time in “I’ll Just Live On As A Villainess”. They’re all starting to blend together at this point!

I’ll Just Live On As A Villainess Summary

After an office worker is reborn as Everia Oberon, a romance novel villainess destined for an evil life and a tragic death, she decides to skip the drama by retiring to the countryside.

Having moved to a frigid region full of nonflammable wood, Everia calls on archmage Theoharis to warm her home with his azure flame… not realizing that she’s bound herself to a lifelong contract!

Now that she’s master of a bloodthirsty (but breathtakingly handsome) demon dog, can she kiss the quiet life goodbye?

I’ll Just Live On As A Villainess starts with yet another isekai’d person wanting to live quietly and not die.

This means they decide to leave society for a lazy life, only to end up in an inhospitable place. In order to survive this place and thrive, our main female lead summons a demon. 

Now this demon helps her but he can’t just randomly go back. He’s stuck there for life (her life, not his, I assume). 

I’m not sure about you, but this aspect of the story is very similar to “Villainess Maker”. The similarities may just be superficial, though. I won’t judge the story too harshly as we’ve barely started. 

The art style reminds me a bit of “Living as the Tyrant’s Older Sister”, but I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe the way the colors are blended? It’s just something that I can’t put my finger on.  Maybe it’s the noses. The noses always get to me.

Now, I won’t say this is a bad story because I love myself an isekai story.

When I initially read this, it had less than 10 chapters so it’s hard to base an opinion around it. It does seem we’re turning into a bit of a naughty territory, which really does also remind me of “Villainess Maker”.

Although, for some reason it feels like this story is more fast-paced and thus develops these romantic situations quicker. At least it’s been hinted at twice, by two separate characters.

I must say I absolutely loved the wyvern part of this story. I can’t forget those puppy eyes looking at the contractor! This story definitely has a charm to it.

Recommendation: Worth a shot, hard to judge based on few chapters but so far it’s quite enjoyable.
