The anime stars:

Norio Nitta (Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama) is directing the anime at OLM Team Yoshioka. Deko Akao (Pokémon: Journeys, Noragami) is in charge of series composition. Hitomi Kōno is designing the characters. Hanae Nakamura, Tatsuhiko Saiki, Kanade Sakuma, and Junko Nakajima are composing the music. ChoQMay will perform the anime's ending theme song "PRIDE."

Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing both the original light novels and the manga adaptation in English, and it describes the story:

Pride Royal Ivy is only eight years old when she realizes that she's been reincarnated, destined to become the future wicked queen and final boss of an otome game. She's got it all in this new life: razor-sharp wit, boss-tier powers, and influence over the kingdom as crown princess. Determined to sow despair and destruction across the land, she... Wait, what kind of a rotten future is that?! Princess Pride decides to drop the maniacal villainess plan and protect the male love interests instead, cheating her way to saving everyone she can! Will this final boss end up earning the adoration of her kingdom?

Tenichi began serializing the original story in the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in April 2018, where it is still ongoing. Ichijinsha began publishing the story in print editions with illustrations by Suzunosuke, beginning with the first volume in June 2019.

Bunko Matsuura launched the manga adaptation of the novels on the Zero-Sum Online website in March 2020. The manga was canceled due to Matsuura's poor health. Ichijinsha plans to continue the manga with a new serialization in some form, but has no concrete plans yet.
