‘Endo And Kobayashi Live! The Latest On Tsundere Villainess Lieselotte’s Story
J-Novel Club is publishing the light novel series in English and it describes the story:
One day, Crown Prince Sieg hears the Voices of the Gods out of the blue. His fiancée Lieselotte is a “tsun de rais” villainess destined to meet her demise…and her sharp tongue is just a way of covering up her embarrassment. The prince can hardly contain himself after discovering Lieselotte’s adorable hidden side. Little does he know, the heavenly beings that bestowed this knowledge unto him are high schoolers!
Can he use their divine prophecy (let’s play commentary) to save his betrothed and avoid a Bad End?!
Enoshima first put the story on the website Let’s Be Novelists (Shsetsuka ni Nar). In April 2019, Kadokawa Books began putting out the light novel series with pictures by Eihi. Rumiwo Sakaki has been serializing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa’s B’s-LOG COMIC magazine.
