When the economy collapses in September 2008, an exhausted career woman’s fate is left in flux…until she’s reincarnated!

Keika Group’s financial situation isn’t great: they’re on the verge of ruin if left unchecked. However, Runa is determined to save both Keika Group and Japan through risky, smart investments. Thanks to an interest in cold hard cash, knowledge of future technology, and her awareness of Japan’s real-world future doom, Runa might just be able to nip the looming economic collapse in the bud. Witness the rebirth of Japan’s economy as Runa uses her knowledge to save her new present from the future!

  • I gave it a try…

    Help T.T

  • It’s hard for me to put in words how much more interesting this modern villainess reincarnation is compared to all the fantasy ones.
    I don’t mind it as much if there’s magic involved, but after reading this it really feels like all these novels that focus almost entirely on relationships of some superficial characters are lacking substance.

    This MC doesn’t just reincarnate as a rich family’s daughter but actually makes use of her knowledge of the past to make huge investments and financial moves. In particular I’d like to take this opportunity to point out that the translation is done very well and there’s a good explanation of some of the terms used at the end each chapter.

  • First time I actually liked a villainess otome game novel lmao

  • Okay so, a big chunk of this book is financial shenanigans, with a lot of technical details.

    The trouble here is – I think it makes it very difficult to translate.

    For example, clearing “bad debts” make up a fair chunk of the narrative.

    Bad debts, are debts which you are owed, that you won’t be collecting on for one reason or another. When you declare a debt bad, you’ve basically forgiven it.

    Declaring a bad debt is basically saying “This asset is worthless, we’re taking it out of the books.”

    Our hero’s solution to “bad debts” is to take advantage of the .com bubble, but that doesn’t really solve the fact that her debtors aren’t paying up. A story around dealing with bad debts, from a villainess POV, should involve hiring people to go break some legs.

    Which is to say, I suspect the translator is using the wrong terms for things, which makes a lot of the business-speak come off as financial word salad.

  • You’d be better off reading a textbook than reading this.
