I’m the Evil Lord of an Intergalactic Empire!
Liam Sera Banfield is a reincarnator. He was reincarnated into a fantasy universe of swords and magic, but at a time that civilization was already making advancements into outer space. The setting takes place in an intergalactic empire, a space opera-like universe where humanoid weapons and spaceships do battle. Liam, who had incarnated into an aristocratic family in a monarchic society, has the ambition to one day become an evil lord. In his previous life, Liam had unfortunately lost everything and died in despair.
— It’s foolish to live for others.
— I will live for myself.
Holding those feelings in his chest, he starts towards his second life, but is instead worshipped as a virtuous ruler from his difference in values. Will Liam be able to safely become an evil lord?
Tonally, this story is a comedy of misunderstandings, much like Tearmoon Empire. Liam does his absolute best to be a selfish a-hole, but all of his decisions are misconstrued as being benevolent and forward thinking.
Like the art and mecha. I'd like this one.
(Lazy on Thanksgiving, otherwise I'd look for the cover to post).
I'll just add that Evil Lord is from the same author as Sevens and Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs, which is an indicator of quality in itself.
@Lily-Garden Kinda, except Wein understands he's failing upwards, whereas Liam seriously thinks he's being "evil".
