Reborn in a dark and ancient fantasy world as the legitimate son of the Count Lindblum, sharing the name with the legendary mage Vanitas Armatail, our protagonist Vanitas Lindblum embarks on a treacherous path.
He is depicted as a villainous character in the novel “______,” destined to embrace the utmost depravity, only to meet a tragic fate as he falls into the abyss of enslavement and manipulation.
During an extended vacation from the magic academy, Vanitas Lindblum finds himself falling into a bottomless, gloomy swamp. After being tormented by a high fever, he discovers that he has reincarnated into a novel, unable even to remember its title.
However, even since his enrollment, he has been renowned as a troublesome troublemaker within the academy, accumulating evil deeds. Returning to the academy, he knows full well that he will be feared, avoided, and secretly reviled by others.
…But what of it?
Should he be concerned about the opinions of those around him and strive to walk the path of righteousness?
Should he cautiously follow the vague memories of the novel’s plot and meticulously plot his every move?
Nonsense. Worrying about such futile matters is pointless.
This is the tale of the nameless man reborn as Vanitas Lindblum, a villainous aristocrat, living life as he pleases, unapologetically carving his path to supremacy.
“――――Stand not in my way, oh protagonist façade.”
The question remains: Can he survive without falling victim to the fangs of the greatest archenemy, the protagonist?
The key to survival lies in the radiant heroines who, for some reason, draw near him like shimmering stars in the night sky.
