Synopsis of Hamefura
After hitting her head particularly hard one day, Duke Claes' daughter Katarina recovers all the memories of her past life: that of a Japanese teenager. Just before her untimely death, this girl remembers playing an otome game ... and it's exactly like the world she's living in now!
She is now Katarina Claes, the antagonist of the otome game, who harassed the protagonist until the end. Knowing all the possible outcomes of the game, he realizes that all possible routes end with Katarina's murder or exile. To avoid these catastrophic endings, he has to use his knowledge of the game and his own tricks, starting with breaking this engagement with the prince.
