Endo and Kobayashi Live! The Latest on Tsundere Villainess Lieselotte sounds like it could be a lot of fun if it's written well. The idea of a "Let's Play" informing the actions of the characters in the story is an idea that I'm shocked is not more prevalent in North American YA itself, and I think there's a charm to the idea that will make the first volume worth checking out.

Yeah, definitely. I usually get my hopes up for these announce,ents on,h to be disappointed, but that one sounds promising. A Let's Play format bight be a neat way to inject some humor into one of these generic settings while simultaneously avoiding some of the more tiresome tropes. Hopefully the Prince won't be too self-inserty.

Holy shit what is with all the blue eyed silver haired girls. someone on the licensing team has a type.


Anyway, I've read part of the manga for Endo and Kobayashi Live! The Latest on Tsundere Villainess Lieselotte and it's really good! I really enjoyed it, it's a pretty fresh take on the villainess genre. Endo and Kobayashi have their own issues and they come together to work through it via playing the game together. The prince is a bit of a nerd who loves Lieselotte but doesn't know how to talk to her properly because she's so tsun.
If it gets a physical release I'll definitely buy it (I'm not big on digital as I never actually get around to reading anything that way).

Goodbye Otherworld sounds kinda interesting!

Seems that way, they should really acquire Lord Marksman and Vanadis then. Tokyo Ravens has a silver haired fox too...both of which I would purchase immediately, J-Novel...just sayin'. Wink

It's a fairly substantial trend in the light novel sphere right now, so you're gonna see a lot more of them.

I've read the early parts for all of these and I'm definitely into Villainess Commentary the most.
