A new anime adaptation is on the way in 2023 that uses a very familiar word these days with I’m in Love with the Villainess. Announced in December 2022, the series had some solid baseline information but has seen some welcome additions. With the show previously set for an October 2023 debut, Crunchyroll previously announced its pickup of the show for streaming. They’ll bring it out in the fall with it being available to members worldwide excluding Asia.
The show was recently given an October 2nd, 2023 premiere for it and now a new trailer for it has arrived.
