Book 13
The fan-favorite comedy jaunt through romance, giant robots, and dating sim jokes from the author of I’m the Evil Lord of an Intergalactic Empire!–and don’t miss the manga adaptation or the anime!

Office worker Leon is reincarnated into a dating sim video game, where women reign supreme and only beautiful men have a seat at the table. But Leon has a secret weapon: he remembers everything from his past life, which includes a complete playthrough of the very game in which he is now trapped. Can Leon spark a revolution to change this new world order?
Book 12
OUTER SPACE OR CERTAIN DEATH?!

New humanity’s greatest trump card—the intelligent mobile fortress Arcadia—has revived. The Empire is reduced to acting as Arcadia’s puppet, Finn is ordered to assassinate Leon, and the last dregs of old humanity face total annihilation. Even Luxion can’t hope to overcome the looming threat. Leon finds himself at a crossroads: does he take a select few with him and leave this doomed planet for outer space, or does he battle an impossible enemy where the only outcome is certain death?
Book 11
WAR IS NO TEA PARTY

The Holy Kingdom of Rachel and its allies have Holfort Kingdom cornered, and the mighty nation has an ultimatum for Leon: He must hand over all his Lost Items for their military concord to share, or prepare for war! Thankfully, Queen Mylene has a plan. By sending Leon out on the front lines to battle Rachel, she can stall to hold diplomatic discussions with other nations. But there’s something odd about how she’s acting…
Book 10
PARTNERS, PROBLEMS, POLITICS

Caught between her own family and Leon, Angie feels like so much of a burden that she considers leaving the relationship. Leon, too, is convinced he’s only weighing Angie down and wonders if breaking off their engagement would be better for her.

In lighter news, Leon plans a trip to go treasure hunting. When Marie, the idiot brigade, and Jake’s party all pitch in, Leon’s adventure turns into a no-holds-barred competition!
Book 9
PLOT TWISTS, GENDER FLIPS

Leon plunges into the third entry in the dating-sim series to rendezvous with its main character and love interests. Unfortunately, the scenario is already breaking down: one of the male romance options is now a woman! Meanwhile, the female lead is off enjoying herself with a knight who didn’t even appear in the original game. And in the shadows of the capital, a murderer is on the loose… Can Leon drag this spiraling story back on track?!
Book 8
MUTUAL BALL AND CHAIN

Strong-armed into taking a break, Leon kicks back and relaxes with his three boisterous fiancées. When the Roseblades arrive to arrange an inter-house marriage, Leon assumes he’ll be offered a fourth bride—Deirdre, his friend and former upperclassman. To Leon’s surprise, they want to foist Deirdre’s difficult older sister on his brother Nicks! A heartfelt love story begins, but who knows who’ll end up holding the leash?
Book 7
THE END IS NIGH (AGAIN)

Leon thinks he’s finally made a breakthrough in his relationship with Noelle, even if Marie’s still accusing him of being a total incompetent. But all Leon’s resolve may come to naught in the face of the platoon of problems rocketing toward him. He’ll have to contend with everything from deteriorating parent-child relationships to a grudge-based coup d’etat to a full-blown AI uprising before he earns a happy ending for Noelle—and maybe even himself.
Book 6
THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

Leon may have saved Noelle from a life in chains, but her future is far from certain. Bound as she is to the Sacred Tree Sapling, she is a prize for every nation in the world. Worse, Leon’s fiancées disagree over her fate: does Noelle have a responsibility to serve a nation, or should she be free to choose how she lives her life? Meanwhile, Noelle’s own villainess, Louise, faces the same dire question. It seems the Sacred Tree has demanded a sacrifice in exchange for continuing to protect the Republic—and it wants Louise. It’s up to Leon to intervene before all the women in his life succumb to the dark fates the otome game demands.
Book 5
GUARDIAN OF THE TREE—AND THE PRIESTESS

Against his wishes, Leon keeps getting pulled deeper and deeper into these otome game plotlines. Somehow, he’s ended up with the Guardian Crest of the Sacred Tree, which is supposed to manifest on the hand of the chosen love interest. But Noelle, the new protagonist, couldn’t possibly feel such things for him, right? He’s going to have to figure it out fast, or Noelle might be swept away by men with far darker intentions for the Alzer Republic…and for Noelle herself.
 
Book 4
REINCARNATION ROUND TWO

Leon heads off to study abroad in the Alzer Republic, accompanied by Marie and the idiot brigade (a.k.a., her love interests). Leon’s just praying that Marie keeps her hands to herself—if she meddles in the plot of the sequel, she may force him to save the world. Again. Unfortunately, the original story has already flown off the rails. The new protagonist has a twin sister who wasn’t in the game! On top of that, some high and mighty noble’s son, backed by the power of Alzer’s Holy Tree, is baring his fangs at Leon. If Leon ever wants that quiet country life, he’ll have to seize the reins of a whole new story.
Book 3
SAVE THE KINGDOM OR SAVE HIMSELF?

Leon keeps earning accolades and climbing the social ladder–much to his chagrin. Now other nobles view him as a threat, and his political rivals pull out all the stops to lock him up and throw away the key. But that’s just what the Principality of Fanoss wants. With Holfort Kingdom’s greatest power behind bars, the Principality launches an unprecedented attack. Now Leon must figure out how to free himself–and whether his country is even worth saving.
 
Book 2
REVOLUTION WAITS FOR NO MAN Leon doesn’t want a leading role, not in the kingdom and not in the game. Too bad for him. Between his new promotion and the attentions of protagonist Livia and villainess Angie, no one will leave him alone–least of all the prince and his lordly gang. As Leon struggles for independence, tension grows with his allies. But soon, they’ll have to band together to face the greatest danger imaginable, one that threatens to destabilize the game itself.
Book 1
