The My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! movie release date in Japan is confirmed to be scheduled for 2023.
The title of the Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta movie hasn’t been announced yet.
The initial announcement of the film was made shortly before the anime’s second season, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! X, released its final episode on September 18, 2021.
The official Twitter account confirmed that the My Next Life as a Villainess movie story summary will be released at a later date. On April 3, 2022, the account stated, “What kind of doom flag awaits us on the screen? Please wait for the follow-up report!”
It’s possible the HameFura movie could adapt Volume 6 in the light novel series, but it could also be an original story. The first two seasons of the anime TV series have already adapted the first four light novel volumes and much of Volume 5, which is comprised entirely of side stories.
Hopefully, the film’s ending will announce the My Next Life as a Villainess Season 3 anime TV series.
Original creator Satoru Yamaguchi, light novel illustrator Nanami Hidaka, and Maaya Uchida, the Japanese voice actress playing Catarina Claes, all offered their congratulations for the movie adaptation announcement.
“Thanks to everyone’s support, the movie version decision has been announced!” said Yamaguchi. “Thank you very much. I never thought I’d see Catarina and the others on screen! I’m really looking forward to it.”
“Congratulations on the movie version!” said Hidaka. “I’m looking forward to seeing Catarina and her friends animated on the big screen.”
“It’s a movie! I had the same reaction as Catarina and her friends!” said Uchida. “I was surprised and happy, and when the second season was announced at the end of the first season, I thought, ‘That was fast!’ I was surprised and happy. Please look forward to Catarina’s adventure!”
In addition to the film, there is a My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! X OVA episode that will release with the special edition of manga Volume 7 on September 30, 2021. The OVA episode, which could be considered My Next Life as a Villainess Season 2 Episode 13, will tell a story of Katarina’s childhood from the light novels that was skipped by the anime.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! movie release date predictions
As of the last update, Studio Silver Link or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact My Next Life as a Villainess movie release date. The production of a HameFura movie sequel was announced on September 17, 2021. The time frame of 2023 was announced in early April 2022.
Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when the Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta movie release date will occur in the future.
When the official HameFura Twitter account made the announcement the tweet stated, “Please wait for the follow-up report regarding the timing [of release] and [story] contents.”
Considering the timing of the announcement, it’s very like the My Next Life as a Villainess movie release date in Japan will be in mid to late 2023. May-July and November-December are typically considered the best timing for a tentpole film to have a chance at being a blockbuster premiere whereas January and February are considered the “dump months” for bad movies.
As for the release date in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and other countries, it’s possible that if the movie box office in Japan is high enough that the film could come out in international theaters.
If so, similar to how The Saga of Tanya the Evil was handled, it’s possible the film will first be released internationally in select theaters several months after the Japanese theater premiere, then it’ll come out on Blu-Ray/DVD, and then Crunchyroll will be streaming it many months later.
