(Cthulhu Average; Jashin Average)
When she stands, she’s like a white peony. When she sits, she’s like a tree peony. When she walks, she’s like a lily flower. And when you look her in the eyes, she’s like the Great King of Terror.
Despite having the qualities to be a peerless bishoujo, because of the look of her eyes and that atmosphere of hers, she’s feared by others; such a girl is forcefully sent to another world.
Being told that she would be granted a wish as a special favour, the girl made a wish────
“Make my eyes and atmosphere normal please.”
This is a story recounting the lifestyle in a parallel world of a girl who would be perfect (probably) if just her one weakpoint was overcome.
A fantasy comedy with magic, dungeons, and a hero and demon king(candidate) who she gets tangled up with.
She’s cursed though.

The Vampire Princess Dreams a Rose Coloured Dream (TS)
I-, who was supposed to have died in an accident, awaken as my “Eternal Horizon Online”’s vampire princess character. It turns out that I, along with my entire pet, assets, and territory within the game had been transferred into a different word that was similar to the game. When fighting around, to be honest, I was in a higher post than my followers who are stronger than me, I also have no choice but to reign as the ‘me’ from the game. Furthermore the demons and beast of this world, and even demi-human start to follow me too, and before I knew it I had established a huge empire. Moreover, trouble from the appearance of mysterious enemies are just endless…
Notes: Like Overlord but some actual overlording instead of being a sissy and hiding as an adventurer for 2 arcs. Translator is a little fobby, but hopefully some editor recruits will fix this.

I Reincarnated Into an Otome Game as a Villainess With Only Destruction Flags…
(Destruction Flag Otome; Monkey Ojou)

Also, I’ve turned into the villainess that interfered with the romance of the capture targets… If the heroine got a happy end, I would be exiled, while if she got a bad end, I would be killed by the capture target… I have no happy end!? Why is it only bad!? Somehow I have to avoid the destruction end, and reach old age peacefully!!
– Mary & Maria best girls

I used to be a human girl. I can’t recall my name. Because I’ve turned into a female dragon. What’s more, in a certain kingdom I am considered a sacred dragon. My diet consists of humans… Eh? Humans?
It seems that after eating a human, that human’s magical power is what sustains me. How G R O S S. By now I’ve gotten used to it and eat without batting an eyelid though. Eeh. I want to live, too.
I’m a type of dragon called an “Earth Dragon”, which for generations have formed contracts with humans in a certain kingdom, leading that kingdom to victory in war against another kingdom that they are on bad terms with.
I don’t care about that. I want to live in peace. Since I’ve come to an alternate reality, I want to live in tranqulity.
However, when living together with my fluffy rabbit friend, I got branded as a “man-eating dragon”. Growing tired of those sent to vanquish me, I entered human society, ending up serving in the castle, where tasty looking humans abounded.
When I felt down about my job, I was immediately informed that I had been selected for personal-reassignment. I’m to clean the 4th Knight Corps resting quarters. There I met a lineup of top-grade ingredient tasty looking humans.

An Otome Game’s Burikko Villainess Turned into a Magic Otaku
The high school girl Manami who had fallen down the emergency stairs at school had, before she noticed, become a three year old in the world of an Otome Game. What’s more, that little girl was one of the rival characters that appeared in the game; the can’t-take-a-hint-burikko-type-rival daughter of a marquis family. What awaited her at the end was social obliteration.
Though she did get a bad feeling about this… Aimi decided not to worry!
It was a dream after all, so that had nothing to do with her. For now, she’s going to master magic! Hooray!

What Came to Mind During My Third Time in Another World was to For Now, Get Naked (TS)
After being tossed into another world, Ononogi Kazuto splendidly defeated the Demon King as the Hero. However, there was no sign of being able to return to his old world at all. The moment that he touched a gem that appeared at the Demon King’s throne, Kazuto was sent back to the first town, 《Azerleims》.
From here began the tale of this second time(NG+). He saved the imperial princess that he was unable to save in the second time, had a wedding with her, and after defeating the Demon King, met his happy end. Or at least that’s how it should have been. The True Demon King has suddenly appeared.
Although it was a tough battle together with his companions, Kazuto eventually defeated it. And from the mouth of the True Demon King appeared a gem. Although he had a bad feeling about it, Kaztuo reached his hand out towards it, and when he did, Kazuto was sent once again to the starting town, 《Azerleims》.
As you’d expect, by now Kazuto wasn’t really surprised, but the figure reflected in the mirror was female. Bewilderment. But at that point, Kazuto took one action.
“…Mn. For now, let’s get naked.”

I Will Live with Humility and Dependability as My Motto
(Kenkyo, Kenjitsu wo Mottoo ni Ikiteorimasu; KenkyoKenjitu)
It was something that happened while I was waiting for the day of the primary school entrance exam. I realised that I had become one of the characters of a shoujo manga that I loved reading in my old life, 『you are my dolce』.
The role I was assigned was a character who bullied the commoner protagonist and tried to get in the way of her love with a rich boy nicknamed Emperor; a typical villainess ojousama, Kisshouin Reika.
At the end of the story, Reika suffered the Emperor’s retribution and even her family fell into ruin. With the villain gone, the protagonist and the Emperor overcame their trials and became a couple. And they lived happily ever after.
Wait, that’s terrible for meee! The manga ended with just that, but I have to continue living my life after my family is ruined!
I’m fine with the protagonist having fun with her romance or love or whatever. I’ll erase my presence so that I don’t anger the Emperor.
Eh-? The story isn’t progressing well because there’s no villain, you say? But I’m busy saving up money and studying so that I can live well after the collapse.
Even if just a little, I want to avoid getting involved with the Emperor to avoid being ruined. If you two are a destined couple, then please just get together even without facing those trials.
In my previous life, I was a complete commoner. Right now I’m an ojousama from a rich family. I can’t forget the taste of junk food, so I’ll sneakily slip out of my house to buy potato chips.

In one of the worlds that exist within virtual reality, Kagami held the title of one of the Nine Sages, a position that placed him at the pinnacle of magicians.
One day, he fell asleep in-game after pulling an all-nighter. When he opened his eyes, what he found was a world that was different to the one before… More important than anything else, was that the grizzled and dignified veteran’s body that he was used to, had now turned into an innocent little girl’s.
If his true identity was leaked, honestly speaking it was a situation where it was very possible that the solemn image he had built up until now would be destroyed.
And to deal with this problem, the excuse that he came up with was…

Tilea’s Worries (TS)
With the progression of his Chuuni Disease, Shioda Tetsuya is shunned by his family, and dies in despair, a thirty three year old jobless virgin. He vowed that if he was born again, this time he would stay away from delusions and live life seriously. Fortunately, he reincarnated in another world as a girl named Tilea, and lived a happy life with her kind parents and adorable little sister, but…
Lately, she’d been troubled. Her beloved sister had begun talking about how she was actually one of the Six Demon Generals, serving directly under Demon King Zorg, a descendant of the Three Great Demons. The situation was looking bad. She had to do something before this Chuuni Disease got any worse!
This is a fantasy “misunderstanding story” about a protagonist who has not noticed in the slightest that she’s a “cheat”-like existence, and how in her efforts to heal her sister’s Chuuni Disease (except that she really is one of the Six Demon Generals), she somehow or other ended up setting out to defeat the Demon King.

The Bathroom Goddess
“The heck are you? A peeper?”
“Would it be possible for you to spare me a cup of water?”
This conversation that was obviously mismatched at a glance, was the meeting between the Japanese company employee, Tamano Izumi, and the one who would later be known as the Sacred Kingdom of Yohk’Zai’s strongest and greatest king, Huuron.
While she was in the middle of a bath, the bathroom window connected to a mysterious world. Izumi was just enjoying her baths while she bartered things with the various people that appeared beyond the window, but before long, she ended up deeply affecting the fate of that world…
It was annoying to think of a name, so I just went with whatever.
After reincarnating in the novel I loved, I run left and right to save my beloved character from peril!
So that I can live a great life, I’ll cut down my villainness role, and even warp fate itself!
So become happy, okay? Oniisama!
