Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series globally, except in Asia. The series’ opening song, titled “Shōjo no Route wa hitotsu janai!”, was sung by angela, while the ending theme, entitled “Bad End”, was interpreted by Shōta Aoi. What does all of this tell us about the third season?
Taking all of this into account, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! future seems very bright, despite there being no news of a potential third season. The source works are, as we have said, quite popular, as was the anime series, and the fact that the franchise has a large fanbase, combined with the fact that we have seen a second season relatively recently and have a movie coming out next year, makes us very hopeful. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2024, but a more realistic scenario is either late 2024or even 2025, if it even happens.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Season 3 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Season 3, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the third season of My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a third season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. But, based on all the information we have, this does not seem like a likely outcome.
As we have said, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! is a very likely candidate for a return. The ongoing manga series still has more material up for adapting and the anime is quite popular as well, enormously so, in fact. Still, we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation after next year’s movie before we can make a proper prediction. Be that as it may, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! is currently on a short break until we get more information on the show’s future.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! is unlikely to come out this year. The earliest we could see a trailer is 2023, but we would have to get confirmation of a third season after the movie’s premiere for that to happen, although 2024 seems to be a more realistic scenario.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Season 3 plot
At this moment, we do not know which parts of the ongoing manga series are going to be adapted in Season 3. Namely, the first two seasons of the anime had only 24 episodes (and an OVA episode) and a very self-contained adaptation schedule, which means that there are a lot more chapters to adapt. But, at this moment, we cannot really speculate as to what would be the content of season 3, mainly because we don’t know what the upcoming movie is going to adapt. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot, in order to give you a general idea of what to expect from the series if you decide to watch it at one point.
Born into a noble family, eight-year-old Catarina Claes has an easy life. She often plays with Geordo Stuart, a son of the royal family. But when she falls and faints during one of the games, Catarina recalls her past life: that of a high school student in modern-day Japan who died in a traffic accident. A fan of manga and games, Catarina also played a dating sim called Fortune Lover.
She now finds herself in it again, but not as a heroine, but as a villainess. In nine years, at the start of the game, she will attend the Magic Academy and another student will steal her fiancé Geordo and Catarina awaits banishment or death. Some of the other “capturable” characters in the game also lead to a bad end for Catarina.
So she resolves to shape the world around her until the decisive day in such a way that she gets off lightly. After she wakes up, feeling guilty about the scar from the fall, Geordo becomes engaged to Catarina. She also gets stepbrother Keith. But Catarina takes care of him so that he doesn’t become lonely and eventually becomes a womanizer to be wooed by the protagonist, as in the game.
Geordo’s brother Alan also gets to know Catarina and helps him to gain more self-esteem. Catarina befriends his fiancé, Mary Hunt, who was his rival in the “conquest” of Alan. And she meets Sophia Ascart, the Premiers’ daughter, who was bullied by many children because of her unusual appearance. Both girls share a love of romance and become friends, while Catarina also connects with her brother Nicol Ascart.
The beguiling gaze of Nicol is another target in the game, with his sister as the antagonist. Over the years of her toil, Catarina has developed good relationships with all the players in the game. To do this, she has trained her swordsmanship in order to be able to defend herself and tilled a field in the garden to train her earth magic (unsuccessfully), and to be able to take care of herself in an emergency.
On the first day at the Magic Academy, she also meets her rival, Maria Campbell. As one of the few commoners who can cast magic, she soon finds herself being bullied by her classmates, just like in the game. But Catarina counters this and helps her. She is also enthusiastic about Maria’s art of baking and so they quickly become friends. So they often meet in the student council headed by Sirius Dieke, to which the best students come: in addition to Maria, Geordo, and Alan.
