Modern Villainess: It’s Not Easy Building a Corporate Empire Before the Crash

現代社会で乙女ゲームの悪役令嬢をするのはちょっと大変​It’s a Little Hard to be a Villainess of an Otome Game in Modern Society

A woman is reincarnated as the villainess in a retro otome game…where she has to navigate the incoming Great Recession of 2008!

When the economy collapses in September 2008, an exhausted career woman’s fate is left in flux…until she’s reincarnated! Now she’s Keikan Runa—the villainous daughter of the Keika Group—in an otome game set before the pop of Japan’s economic bubble. Keika Group’s financial situation isn’t great: they’re on the verge of ruin if left unchecked. However, Runa is determined to save both Keika Group and Japan through risky, smart investments. Thanks to an interest in cold hard cash, knowledge of future technology, and her awareness of Japan’s real-world future doom, Runa might just be able to nip the looming economic collapse in the bud. Witness the rebirth of Japan’s economy as Runa uses her knowledge to save her new present from the future!

  1. Might want to have google handy if you’re not familiar with terms like “zaibatsu” or “tobashi scheme” or other financial fancy talk. I learned many new things in the first three chapters.

  2. as someone that never understood economy, i feel like this novel it’s still quite easy to understand. I didn’t get the exact meaning of a lot of things, but overall he general idea it’s clearly stated each time the MC take action.
    Also, i learnt a bit of infos because they were explained really well, and with easy to understand examples. As long as the reader doesn’t focus on understanding every single nuance, it’s highly enjoyable and quite fresh to read

  3. A nice read

    A nice take on the villainess genre as the author tackle a pretty difficult topic.
    Not sure if it’ll be for everyone though as mentionned by other comments, it had a lot of technical and historical talk about economic (with some twicks on the historical aspect).

    There was a similar novel on the korean side if I remember correctly, but instead of a villainess, we got a regressor

  4. A nice read
    Unlike most villainess novels, this one fovus more on the political, financial and economical aspects of things.

    It reminds me a bit about that regression novel (korean if I remember correctly) that also talk avout the asian financial crisis

  5. Fair warning: this is kinda verbose and might not be for anyone to read if they don’t find topics about finance boring.

    1. Mannnn i was really waiting for this one but opinions on it have been pretty mixed, I’ve heard the translations are a little scuffed and make an already quite hard to read through even worse since it’s full of specific economic talk and such and author seems to lose focus a lot and focus wayyyy too much in that part … welp I’ll still give vol 1 a go.
