‘The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess to Savior’ is an isekai fantasy series written by the author known as Tenichi, illustrated by Suzunosuke, and published by Ichijinsha since 2019. The Japanese animation studio OLM has picked it up for an anime adaptation to be released in July 2023. Sentai Filmworks acquired the license to stream it to the HiDive streaming service.
“There’s just something about redemption stories that make you want to see the protagonist succeed. And when you combine that premise with isekai? You’ve got a recipe for great entertainment,” HiDive said on their website.
The series is directed by Norio Nitta, written by Deko Akao, and character designs by Hitomi Kōno. Japanese composers Hanae Nakamura, Tatsuhiko Saiki, Kanade Sakuma, and Junko Nakajima are handling the music for the anime.

The series began as a web novel published on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2018.
The Isekai Wiki describes the synopsis as follows,
“Pryde Royal Ivy is only eight years old when she realizes that she’s been reincarnated, destined to become the future wicked queen and final boss of an otome game. She’s got it all in this new life: razor-sharp wit, boss-tier powers, and influence over the kingdom as crown princess. Determined to sow despair and destruction across the land, she… Wait, what kind of a rotten future is that?! Princess Pryde decides to drop the maniacal villainess plan and protect the male love interests instead, cheating her way to saving everyone she can! Will this final boss end up earning the adoration of her kingdom?”
Ichijinsha began publishing a manga version of the series in 2019 with the artist Bunko Matsuura handling the illustrations, though this has been discontinued. Seven Seas Entertainment publishes an English version of both the light novel and the manga in the United States.
