Cross Infinite World has announced their latest acquisition, the one-shot light novel, Past Life Countess, Present Life Otome Game NPC?!Â
The book is a play on the current reincarnation in an otome game genre. Only this time, the main character is a fantasy character reborn into a modern-day Japan based otome game. And, instead of being the heroine, or even the villain, she’s an NPC!
Oh dear, it seems I was reincarnated into a modern otome game from a fantasy world!
All I ever wanted was to be free of my responsibilities as a countess and I finally got my wish when I was reborn as a commoner in modern Japan. Everything was going perfect, except it turns out this is the world of an otome game and some crazy girl who goes around calling herself the â€œheroineâ€ is upset at me for stealing all her â€œeventsâ€ with the â€œlove interestsâ€â€¦ Now she wants me to team up with her against the â€œvillainessâ€. Iâ€™m supposedly just a random NPC, so why am I being dragged into this?!
The book is written by Sorahoshi, with illustrations by Yuki Kinami. It is schedule to release on September 11, 2020. You can preorder it on Amazon now.
