posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Parts of 1st volumes available now with complete volumes launching in December

J-Novel Club announced on Thursday that it will release the first volumes of Satoru Yamaguchi and Nami Hidaka's My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! (Otome Game no Hametsu Flag Shika Nai Akuyaku Reijō ni Tensei Shiteshimatta...) and Eri Shiduki and Kasumi Nagi's Apparently It's My Fault That My Husband's Head Turned Into That of a Beast (Danna-sama no Atama ga Kemono na no wa Dōmo Watashi no Sei Rashii) novel series in early December. The first halves of their first volumes are now available for members, and previews are available for free.

The company announced its license of both titles as Otakuthon in August.

J-Novel Club describes My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!:

After hitting her head particularly hard one day, Duke Claes' daughter, Katarina, suddenly recalls all the memories of her past life: that of a teenage Japanese girl. Just before her untimely death, this girl recalls playing an otome game... that is exactly like the world she's living in now!

She is now Katarina Claes, the antagonist of the otome game, who nastily hounded the protagonist until the end. Knowing all the possible outcomes of the game, she realizes that every single possible route ends with Katarina being murdered or exiled! In order to avoid these Catastrophic Bad Ends, she has to use her knowledge of the game and her own wiles, starting with breaking off this engagement with the prince...

Will Katarina survive while making her way through this world, where bad flags trip at every turn? Find out in this reverse-harem rom-com, led by everybody's favorite villainess!

Yamaguchi began the original novel series on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō! website in July 2014, and Ichijinsha began publishing the novels with illustrations by Hidaka in August 2015. The sixth volume shipped on March 20, and the seventh volume is slated for October 20.

Hidaka also provides the art for the ongoing manga, which began in Ichijinsha's Comic Zero Sum magazine in August 2017. Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed the manga and will release the first volume on July 30, 2019.

J-Novel Club describes Apparently It's My Fault That My Husband's Head Turned Into That of a Beast:

Love Is a Beastly Business!

Rumor has it that Princess Rosemarie is an antisocial shut-in, but the truth is far stranger. The young princess hides from the world because of a strange condition:

whenever someone expresses a negative emotion, she sees their head transform into that of a fearsome beast.

It seems there's no one in the dishonest world of courtly manners she can trust... until she meets Prince Claudio of Baltzar, whose features remain ever human. The two marry at once, but she learns too late that his human features aren't thanks to a kindly nature. Claudio has become a very real beast, all because of Rosemarie's accidental theft of his mana many years prior!

Claudio's life and future are on the line until he gets his mana back — and Rosemarie would give anything to know how to do it. Will they break their mutual curse in time for Rosemarie to get home for tea, or will Claudio lose his temper first? Find out in this new romantic fantasy.

Ichijinsha released the complete two-volume series in compiled book volumes from 2016 to 2017.
