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?
Furthermore, the website announced that the anime will premiere on July 6 and provided additional cast details. The first broadcast of the show will be on Tokyo MX and BS11 on July 6, followed by MBS on July 7. In Japan, the series will be available for streaming on ABEMA, U-NEXT, Anime Hōdai, and other platforms. HIDIVE will also stream the anime.
The anime is being directed by Norio Nitta (known for “Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama”) at OLM Team Yoshioka. Deko Akao (known for “Pokémon: Journeys,” “Noragami”) is responsible for series composition, while Hitomi Kōno is the character designer. The music for the series is composed by Hanae Nakamura, Tatsuhiko Saiki, Kanade Sakuma, and Junko Nakajima. The ending theme song, “PRIDE,” will be performed by ChoQMay.
Tenichi initially serialized the original story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in April 2018, and the serialization is still ongoing. Ichijinsha began publishing printed editions of the story with illustrations by Suzunosuke, starting with the first volume in June 2019.
Bunko Matsuura launched a manga adaptation of the novels on the Zero-Sum Online website in March 2020. However, the manga had to be canceled due to Matsuura’s health issues. Ichijinsha has expressed plans to continue the manga with a new serialization in some form, although concrete details have yet to be announced.
