The author of the light novels WATASHI NO Oshi WA Akuyaku Reijou (I'm in Love with The Villainess), Inori, responded to the questionings on Twitter in the light of the discovery that multiple sections of the first volume of the novels were omitted in his Launch in English. The author responded by pointing out that "it must have been due to causes of force majeure" and that she felt "a bit sad about it." She subsequently pointed out that she hopes that readers act calmly and rationally to the situation.
The omitted content of the novels consists of the internal dialogues of the protagonist RAE. In history, Rae reflects on her actions related to Claire, her female loving interest. She compares her excitement from her excessive with passing the limits and how homosexual artists are represented on Japanese television. The last reference is cultural, since there are specific comic stereotypes that homosexual artists usually interpret in Japan. Members of the LGBT + community in Japan have criticized these representations that, ensure, perpetuate homophobia. Thus, Rae reflects on how she could also be perpetuating these ideas as a defense mechanism to be accepted, and points out that homosexual artists on television are making the same decision.
Readers in social networks have expressed their dismay by the decision to cut the internal monologue, affirming that his absence hinders the development of the character of Rae and makes the character seem without repentance for his actions.
On the other hand, INORI began the publication online through the Shoutetsuka Ni Narou website in January 2018, and the Editorial GL Bunko seal makes its publication on paper with illustrations of Hanagata, with the second volume published in September 2019. A Adaptation to Sleeve by Aonomoto is published in Comic Yuri Hime magazine of the Editorial Ichijinsha since June 2020.
