“Aileen Lauren d’Autriche, our engagement is officially dissolved!
Oh boy, looks like we have another isekai anime show where it’s similar to Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta…
This is Akuyaku Reijou nanode Last Boss wo Kattemimashita (or AkuLas) where it tells the story of a villainess named Aileen Lauren d’Autriche. Yes, her engagement with Prince Cedric Jean Ellmeyer is cancelled, but Aileen is not some ordinary villainess from a visual novel.
Turns out that Aileen Lauren d’Autriche was once a young girl from Japan who is terminally-ill and thus she plays otome games to pass the time.
Sadly, this young girl passed away where she’s reincarnated into the villainess from the game “Regalia of Saints, Demons, and Maidens”, although she doesn’t want to die horribly in her second life as Aileen.
So in order to prevent her demise, Aileen decides to do the unthinkable where she plans to marry the demon lord named Claude Jean Ellmeyer, Cedric’s older brother who was cast away due to having demonic powers.
Accompanied by both Beelzebuth and Keith Eigrid, Lord Claude felt that Aileen’s presence is quite a nuisance.
But, Aileen is determined to marry Lord Claude as she wants to prevent her demise from ever happening.
While it’s a good idea to tame the final boss since it’ll bring eternal peace across the world, it’s not easy to ease the relationship between humans and demons.
Take these rowdy men for example where they bully one of Fenrir’s cubs. I won’t be surprised if the demons will get angry upon learning of this cruel act by humans.
Oh wait, looks like Fenrir got angry that those pesky humans attack one of its children. Thus, those rascals ran away, possibly calling the knights for help since they can’t deal a monster on their own.
But here’s Aileen where she managed to rescue one of Fenrir’s cubs from being brutally killed by those pesky humans. Looks like this villainess did something good…
…until Prince Cedric and his entourage accuse Aileen on helping a demon so she can attack Lilia Reinoise, the main heroine.
Of course, Lilia told Cedric that Aileen didn’t do anything wrong as she just set a monster free from captivity. C’mon, there’s no way Aileen would do such dastardly things that will lead to her demise!
Still, that doesn’t matter ’cause Aileen Lauren d’Autriche will be ostracized due to being the villainess of the story.
Fortunately, her pride was saved when Lord Claude Jean Ellmeyer has arrived to rescue Aileen from humiliation.
Even Prince Cedric is horrified by his brother’s presence as Lord Claude possesses powerful magic. There’s no way that he’ll beat his older brother without a holy sword.
With that said, looks like Lord Claude agrees to accompany Aileen but he’s not gonna marry the villainess yet. I mean, the demon lord sees her as annoying but c’mon, Aileen possesses her past life experience to stop those tragic flags from happening.
But that’s the end of the first episode of AkuLas where I might describe it as some spinoff to HameFura, yet it appears to be slightly distinct where Aileen is quite competent when it comes to stopping her untimely demise.
How will her relationship with a demon lord remains uncertain but hey, I’m looking forward on the next episode where Aileen won’t stop until she gets a yes from Lord Claude.
