My Life as a Villainess Episode 8: Book of Yummy Doom

Our heroine and her harem found themselves in a rather peculiar predicament this time around.

Mary looking after Catarina

Mary pondering her next move.

Achievement tests were coming up. The Baka One had no idea what to do and retreated to her garden for some relief. Alan dropped by as The People’s Lady watched from afar worried as always. She leapt into action ASAP. Fortunately she ran into Catarina who invited her to study together. The seitokaichou helped them with their studies. He told them to check out the Eastern library for more reference books. Alas, on their way to said library they met up with the rest of Bakarina’s harem, spoiling Mary’s special study date.

Mary and Maria reading the cursed book

While studying The Baka One’s sweet tooth kicked in. Mary and Maria happily rushed off to prepare tea and sweets for their sweetie. Catarina noticed a strange green light emanating from a particular book. Suddenly everyone in the room were sucked inside. Mary and Maria returned a few seconds before suffering the same fate. The book was called “A Tale by the Name of Desire”. Right there viewers got an idea what the episode would be about.

As always we skip the boys’ scenes (All of them were hilarious btw) and focus on Sophia’s desire. We found her and Bakarina in her library. Catarina said she’d like to live together with Sophia reading books and eating sweets.

Sophia's Desire

Sophia may be the most subdued but push the right buttons and watch her awaken her true power.

Sophia was like “I’m ready for you any time! You see, I…l…lo…”

Catarina: ” I love you too, Sophia.”

Sophia's ultimatum

Sophia’s ultimatum.

Mary reaching her limit

Poor Mary could only look on as her competition made moves on her beloved.

Besides Sophia’s desire the best parts of the episode were watching Mary slowly descend to madness and Maria doing her best to control her friend/rival. This was her after enduring four advances.

Mary's screw it face

Mary’s like “I don’t have to watch the fifth rival’s desire to know how it will end”.

Suddenly they remembered reading how to break the curse. So long as a trapped person’s desire was fulfilled everyone inside would be freed. They had yet to see Catarina’s desire.

Mary and Maria desperately wanting to help Catarina

The funniest joke of the episode. I can’t explain why.

Catarina's Desire

Catarina beating the curse as only she could.

Mary and Maria relieved

The day is saved!

Mary's battle rages on

…or not. The People’s Lady’s war rages on.

I may not have shown it properly but this was one of the best episodes. Ask my gut. I was left coughing and breathless.

On a personal note I hope this isn’t the “Mary Episode” I’ve been waiting ever so long for because as fantastic as she was here all she did was endure great torture. Us Team Mary stans know she’s capable of so much more. We must hang in there. Team Maria and Team Sophia had their time in the spotlight so surely Team Mary’s time will come…It better…

    Maria’s support for Mary kinda makes me hope for an OT3 of those…

    I definitely agree with you. This is NOT a Mary episode. She didn’t even get the chance to be alone with Catarina for the majority of the episode. Mary’s been working really hard to keep Catarina’s admirers away I hope she’d get an episode that she truly deserves.

    Though I love the scene where Catarina craved for Mary’s tea and Maria’s sweets 😀

    Mary’s desire would have definitely overwhelmed that book as well. No need for her to get trapped in a cursed book to make it plainly obvious what she wants.
    Would have been fun to see Maria’s desire as well.

    Delicious. Now we know that lovely Sophia wants Catarina for intimacy and not just a friend ^^

    Catarina: Wanna study together.
    Mary: YES! I know the perfect place to study….
    A few minutes later
    Catarina: Your room?
    Mary: Yes. NOONE will interrupt us here.
    Catarina: What?
    Mary: Nothing, nothing! Now let’s make this into a game.
    Catarina: A game?! That sounds fun!
    Mary: I will ask you questions and for each question you get right, I will take off an article of clothing. For each question you get wrong, you will remove an article of clothing. Then, if I have no more clothing to remove, I will have to whatever you want and vice versa.
    Catarina: A strip quiz. …. Alright! What’s the worse could happen.
    Mary: YES!
    Mary’s bedroom door flies open and Sophie and Maria falls into the room.
    Sophie: W-we’re joining the game!
    Maria, blushing, nods furiously.
    Mary: I forgot to lock my door! Curses!
    A few days later Catarina stands confusedly at an alter wearing a tux as three brides makes their way down the aisle.

    Best episode so far. Now we know that Sophia is also craving for Catarina’s honey. Mary and Maria both know they’re rivals but still help each other for the sake of their loved one. Showing tea and sweets to a book, that was funny. A cursed book can’t contain Catarina’s desire for sweets. Oh no, I hope this is not Mary’s episode. It looks like it because we talk about the girls only and let’s be honest Mary is a champ. But maybe next week.

      Catarina’s power is incredible. The ladies giving it their all is nice to see. Mary remains the best in our hearts. REALLY hope she’ll get an episode to freely relish Catarina without worrying over the others. Maria and Sophia got to enjoy some alone time with her so why can’t she?

    Mary was kind enough to save Alan from embarrassment.

    I guess Catarina didn’t get to serve her mushrooms to anyone. Either that or they weren’t poisonous. Probably for the best, since only the girls volunteered to eat them.

    Sophia could use the desire boost in her efforts, but Mary would probably do that on an ordinary day.

    Poor Mary can’t catch a break, yet. I hope she gets to spend quality alone time with Bakarina soon.

    It took all of Mary’s willpower (and Maria’s support) to keep her sanity in check. Her poor heart couldn’t stand it! It would have been quite interesting to see what form Mary’s desire would have taken. Double for Maria. Also, I don’t think she would have been embarrassed by her actions in the book like the others were.

    Everyone got out thanks to Catarina but can you really say her desire was fulfilled by the book? If anything, she was still unsatisfied even after scarfing down so many sweets. You could say that it gave up on keeping her satisfied ;).
