This world is stacked against me, but can my wits and insider game knowledge score the affection of these male characters? Or the reset button???

Both of the main charactes are living in worlds that are affected by game choices. Both main charactes are transmigrated into the games from their respective worlds and must complete the conditions requested of them in order to return. Both main charactes must acquire the love of the male main charactes to succeed. Also both of the main charactes are considered to be villainesses.In “Death is the only ending for the Villainess”, the world is actually a love simulation video game which contrasts with “Happy ending for the Time-Limited Villainess” in which the main character finds herself in a new situation because of a demon guy. 

9.Endo and Kobayashi’s Live Commentary on the Villainess

When her embarrassment levels exceed a certain limit, she will explode into anger. However, the point that she’s suppressing under the surface is that she wouldn’t mind that sort of thing if it were in a less public place. As Endo-kun passionately reacts to the antics of Lady Liselotte, the villainess of an otome game, Kobayashi-san provides a painstaking breakdown of her tsundere behaviour. Suddenly, one person could hear their voices; Liselotte’s fiancée, Prince Siegward. That is where this story begins.

Honestly Endo and Kobayashi’s Live Commentary on the Villainess doesn’t have as dark of a story as Villains are destined to die, but it does have a great looming threat just like Villains Are Destined to Die. Although the “villain” in Endo and Kobayashi’s Live Commentary on the Villainess isn’t the main character the story does still mainly revolve around her. Both manga are attempting to save a misunderstood “villain”. Although Endo and Kobayashi’s Live Commentary on the Villainess has a lot of cute sence their is so much mystery surrounding what is really going on I can’t help but long for more chapters. I do think the story needs a bit more work when explaining the backrounf of characters tho.

8.The Villain’s Savior

Description:Set on a path to tragedy and misfortune from a young age, Aseph Randell is doomed to die a villain. That is, until the mysterious Elzay Tiathe appears in his life with a promise: “I can save you.” After having vivid visions of him for so long, can Elzay untangle the twisted fate tied to Aseph… or will they both be dragged down together?

Death is the Only Ending for the Villainess has a similar “tragedy” aspect to it, despite not playing a big enough role to be labelled as one of the genres. The female protagonist, of this webcomic is very alert of her situation and wants to find a way to save her life. Kind of similar to the situation in The Villain’s Savior, but opposite. (Instead of saving the meal lead’s life, it’s the own female protaganist’s.) Whether or not it is the same, you’ll enjoy the story as well.

7.The Villainess Lives Again

Both Main characters are fighting against their known tragic future that most likely ends in death. Taking matters into their own hands.

Strong protagonist who in the past/original lived everyone thought they were strong but only really became strong in this new life they vowed to change. Also it’s interesting to see the parallels with their past, present, and future.
