In a statement released this evening, the light novel publisher J-Novel Club have announced a replacement scheme for their print release of Satoru Yamaguchi’s My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom volume 1, following a print error.
The publisher confirmed that the paperback physical edition of the book, which is set for release on 21 May 2020 via Seven Seas Entertainment, accidentally omits the first page of the book’s epilogue. In their statement, J-Novel Club has included a printable PDF of the missing page as a short term solution, and are offering a replacement schem for customers who wish to obtain a fixed copy when they are available in August.
The scheme is open to customers outside of the United States, but J-Novel Club do caution that international customers may take longer to process. To take part, they ask that you simply cut out the bar code from the volume’s back cover and mail it to them. You do not need to send the entire novel. Their P. O. Box address, is as follows:
P.O. Box 591644
San Antonio, TX 78259
Customers who send in their barcodes should also enclose their name, address and email address. The eBook editions of the novel, however, are unaffected by this issue.
J-Novel Club describes the novel series as follows:
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!
A television anime adaptation by Silver Link (Chivalry of a Failed Knight) is currently airing, and is available to stream on Crunchyroll.
