Bloodstained Princess
About Scarlet

Scarlet el Vandaminion is the main character of Saigo ni Hitotsu Dake Onegaishite mo Yoroshii Desu ka? (最後にひとつだけお願いしてもよろしいでしょうか), fan translated as May I Please Ask You Just One Last Thing?, a Japanese light novel series and manga series. The novels are written by Otori Nana, with illustrations and character designs by Satsuki, and the manga adaptation is by Hoonoki Sora. Although the series is not part of the isekai (different world) genre, it shares some similarities with isekai series based on otome games.

Scarlet, the daughter of a duke, is the fiancee of the cruel and selfish second prince Kyle, the heir to the throne. Although Scarlet is inherently violent, she is forced to suppress her violent tendencies in order to keep her engagement with Kyle and please her father. Kyle mercilessly and relentlessly tortures Scarlet over the course of seven years, while she tries to kill all of her feelings and maintain a cold, indifferent exterior. The only one who can see through Scarlet's facade is the devious, black-bellied first prince Julius. At the start of the series, Kyle publicly breaks off their engagement and defames Scarlet. Now freed from all obligations, Scarlet unleashes her years of pent-up fury on Kyle and his corrupt supporters, using her fists to beat them all into a bloody pulp. Julius then recruits Scarlet to help him clean up the rest of the corrupt nobles in the country.

The light novel series currently has 2 volumes, and the manga began serialization in late 2018. Neither the light novels nor the manga have been licensed in English. English fan translations of the novel can be found at NovelUpdates.com, and translations of the manga are at Mangadex.org.
