    • Give it a try if you like a mc that only works for himself. Well his family too and well friends sometimes. Theres romance too. The mc starts from weak to become strong. If u want a spoiler regarding his strength just reply to this with "sure lmfao"

    It’s kinda sad how they said murdering someone was a mistake and just gave him a little punishment:(

  • lnwUser26384 Jan 03, 2021

    I dropped this long ago because the story progress really slow. The story is good though that's why I'm giving this another chance, wish me luck.

  • Calm Dec 28, 2020

    This novel is slow. Extremely slow. You can skip from chap. 816 to 916 and will not miss anything. The MC is... Well no comment.

  • PrinceOfEdo Dec 18, 2020

    Love this novel, hope it gets picked up as a manga. The MC is way too haunted by his past but he's had 2 past lives but he's still caught up on his 1st. Over all everyone is gonna have some issues but it's a great novel! Thank you

  • Parode Dec 12, 2020

    Well, good but HELL SLOW character developpement even if MC is kind of an ass. I mean he has his reasons but come on. That's a new life, you have to move on at some point. Nice characters. Nice plots. It's really well done, there are a hell a lot of plots, they don't roll around MC, but sometimes, it happens MC meets the plot. Great novel tho. I wish i knew how to support the author :/

  • Caelum Dec 01, 2020

    If you prefer: Harems "Smart" to nigh omnicient MCs MCs with a clearly defined set of morals MCs with a character depth of a kiddie pool Little to no complexity in plot formulas Then keep moving on, this novel ain't for you.

  • I hope they release the rest of the chapters cuz it says 918 are translated but only 912 are released. God give me patience... But please hurry.

  • Azazel1 Nov 23, 2020

    Ignore what those ppl say about the story,its a really great read but his paranoia and OCD really get on my nerves somethings. If you can skip does little detail then the story is really hilarious, especially chap 62 were he has the hots for a professor and he was tryna stop the 'Rising of the Spear Hero'

  • CosmosWisp Nov 20, 2020

    I can't believe I missed this site from my recommendations glad I found this novel here. It is absolutely great 10/10

    i've seen some people comment that the mc is childish or stupid. The way he is written is not as someone childish, but someone with serious mental health issues, and for good reason. His father was abusive, his mother neglectful, and with his fathers bipolarism, there's also a genetic factor mixed in. I'm no therapist or psychologist, but if you look up behavioral signs to look out for in antisocial personality disorder, he's got some pretty indicative ones. He has a low self-image (no narcissism) and is capable of empathy towards those that show empathy to him, and lacks remorse when dealing with his enemies in cruel ways. All of this points to him being a sociopath (lack of narcissism and capability of empthy takes psychopath of the table). That does make him socially inept in many ways, making him come over as childish sometimes. But there's no age limit on mental health problems, and I think writing your main character with mental health issues is an interesting and challenging thing to do. And I'm sure a lot of people can relate to this mc. If it isn't what you're looking for, drop it. But give it a chance.

  • V0ID Nov 02, 2020

    You would never know that this is a 40+ year old man, hes fucking childish as fuck.

  • V0ID Nov 02, 2020

    Goddamn chapter 180 was so fucking cringy.. im getting closer and closer to dropping this

  • V0ID Nov 01, 2020

    I just finish reading warlock of the magus world and then started reading this... what a fucking mistake, to go from something so good to something so garbae, this mc is a fucking idiot

    • AppleBee Dec 22, 2020

      I think, you yourself is the problem, not the novel. The novel is so great and I dont understand why you like the Warlock but not this one. I guess this one is too complicated for your shallow mind to read.

    • I just checked "your" novel and it was some chinese cultivation harem bullshit, i don't think i even need to say something else besides the fact that from what i can see you like harem novels from a previous comment which makes me believe that the majority of the novels that you read must be some cringey ass chinese trash with no kind difference between them. So don't come here with your stupid ass thinking your tastes are any good and go back to your shit hole.

  • zer0 Oct 26, 2020

    Can anyone tell me if this has any romance? Does he get any bitches at all? Thanks in advance

      • It would be very kind of you to stop lying to people. I dont know what kind of mental issues you have but since you like harem based novels so much then this isnt a place for you. Please do fuck off you illiterate fuck <3

      • Thanatos13 Dec 26, 2020

        Please mind your words, ma'am or sir. I too am not a fan of harem-based novels, with repetitive and simple plots, poor storytelling, and shallow character but calling someone "illiterate" just because your opinion does not coincide with him/her or you have different tastes is to be straight, harsh. He/She could read anything he/she wants because it does not hurt you or affect you in any way. You could just end your sentence by saying that this is not the novel he/she is looking for. P.s I am not great at speaking English so if by any chance there is a grammar error please don't mind it. Thank you :)

      • Do you think that you did a good job? You want to be praised for how kind you are, don't you? Let me praise you for protecting an illiterate dum dum who talks shit in every lightnovel that doesn't fit his tastes. I think you did a great job. :) You are the kindest person I know. You deserve a cookie <3 You gave me hope in humankind :)

  • MNRDNS Oct 21, 2020

    So far only reach chapter 79, but dang this is like reading an emo kid's diary. From other's review, it seems the MC's gonna grow up, even though he's already 40 emotionally.

This was a 4.5 was for me, I just cant decide.

On one side, I like almost everything about this novel. Let me start my rant.
The characters are not just some empty inside stepping stones for MC. They have a brain (mostly, some are just supposed to be stupid) and personality, just everybody is a bit too cynical. I would like a bit, just a bit less on that front, but the novel is supposed to be about that so it isn't a big issue. Not every person is there to just fight dumbly with the MC and get rekt. The character interactions are very nicely done.
The world building is very good, it isn't a massive info dump. The author keeps in mind the writer and there is just enough information which you would usually be able to absorb from a single chapter. Other than that the world is very interesting.
The funny moments in between just make everything better, and always manage to get a chuckle out of me. (Manohar best boi)
The MC doesn't just get OP altogether, he slowly gets more and more powerful. Although he is powerful but it is clearly shown that there are many more powerful creatures.
I don't remember the author making use of any plot armor, there is always a reason why the MC is able to come out on top, or do something that others wouldn't be able to.

Now here are some things I didn't like.
The MC. I liked him at first and yes he has character development, but its just too slow. He has improved a lot, don't get me wrong and I also wouldn't like it if he turns from a cynic to a jolly moron for no reason, not that I want him to just. Just a bit less cynical as I mentioned earlier would be better. I don't mind too much other characters but the MC is just downright annoying at some points. But well, Character Development.
Now, it is a bit slow for my taste. I don't usually mind the pacing that much, but yeah this is a bit slow, especially during fights which I am not a big fan of. But there isn't much I have against the action scenes so I can bear it.
Now the biggest low point for me was when he became a ranger, it was great at first, but it got repetitive and fast. It went on for quite a few chapters, which were actually quite boring than other chapters. The chapters were well written, no doubt about that but, the ranger thing was just getting repetitive. Which is the only reason I had doubts about giving this a 5.

I would suggest you to give it a read and decide for yourself, but I really enjoyed it.

Now, final issue I had. [Spoilers up ahead]

[Massive Spoiler]

[You really don't want to read it]

[Final warning]

They did my boy Yurial bad. I know it was a big point and it may have been necessary but no, he was one of my fav characters. :(

Over-hyped. Truly not that great, is too damm slow. Mot fights are so long and boring that you will most likely fall asleep. MC does not grow at all. 2 stars is me being nice because I spend soo much time reading this **** and I can't really say I'm not curious of what will happen. Read it if u like i don't care but I do not recommend it. ¯\_(*u*) _/¯

The first 400 Chapters are amazing, the story is set up very well however after that point it becomes soo repetitive its painful. go here and oh no something went wrong, spend the next 60+ chapters solving the problem. rinse and repeat for the next 600 chapters

I liked it at first because the mc wasn't some happy go lucky op from the start character. I disliked his approach to dealing with people like how he literally hated his family up until he had spent 5 years for the sole reason that humans in his previous life were bad. He loves to bring up the fact that he has lived 2 lives despite him not experiencing anything aside from waking up sleeping and dying in the 2nd life. I went into this knowing the mc was cynical, who wouldn't be cynical after living a life like his first one but I had hoped that he would eventually grow not to blindly trust people but to realize that there are people he can trust. however 400 chapters in and the mc has managed to not develop his character at all. for me an mc carries the series since its told from their viewpoint but this mc sucks. I don't know if he ever develops into a decent person that doesn't snap because someone called him ugly. this series for me was originally 5 stars but the mc's lack of development has brought it down to 3 stars. This series is not like dragon ball where goku is the exact type of character that he is supposed to be for the plot to carry on. this series is called the supreme magus and magi are highly respected and acknowledged throughout the lore of this story but the mc pushes away all his allies and is so obsessed with hiding his abilities that he pushes everyone close to him away and puts them in danger and never feels remorse. Spoiler:

his friend dies and that could've been the start of character development for him but instead he's like damn wish I knew him better and carries on with life. Another instance is he tries to sacrifice himself to bring a dead friend to life and succeeds but his dead friend tells everyone to tell him that he failed and the friend stayed dead so that the mc never does something that foolish again because if the mc dies his family will die, and when the mc finds out he curses out the peson who kept the truth from him without even caring about the greater message or how that person felt being forced to lie to teach the mc a lesson

The story is good but I don't like the writing. This is the first novel that I find hard to read. I don't know who is talking. At the end of the sentence, the name of the person talking should be written so we know who is talking. Otherwise, I like the story.

This, geez, this is one of my favorite light novels, for one, it doesn't really have a romance subplot, which is peek wonderful in my books (I don't need romance in my fantasy, thanks). Though some people may dislike lith's kinda sociopathic personality, I'm a fan of an mc so okay with murder. DOn't get me started on solus, she's great, don't know how others feel about her, but I love the girl. Earlier on she's kinda naive but eventually she comes to terms that most humans are bad. All the arcs are pretty good in my books, but when I reread I typically skip over the odi arc because it's so long. On a side note, though, *kinda spoiler* it's kinda frustrating that the current arc isn't about lith, like I want to see what "war" does to someone, you know?

As far as I can tell from 550 ch it is worth reading and a little refreshing in terms of character build. Mmmh I seem to not have enough content for the review so I wrote this sentence. 🖒

So.. I must say that if you're looking for your typical light novel with the hero saving the world with the power of friendship and bullshit like that, i tell you that this will not be your cup of tea.
The MC is a broken man and have lived a abusive life with his bipolar father and negligent mother , can hardly trust anyone and sees most people as a mean to an end while some would say he's a sociopath.
The beginning is pretty good, as i enjoyed the early road(talking age 1-12) when he slowly develops his powers and give us a perspective of how he lives in the new world and how he copes with it when he starts on his journey to redeem his soul and find a solution to his partner. Sometimes the transitions feel lackluster.Most characters have pretty decent backstory.

I'm at chapter 620 right now and i started for about a week.However, i'll tell you that sometimes you may be angry with the mc actions and shit.
So i'd say it's decent to good read.

Muito boa a leitura, primeira novel que eu li com mais de 500 capítulos! O que torna a história mais empolgante é o desenvolvimento dos personagens e principalmente do Lith e da Solus que foi a que eu mais gostei.

I like this Novel VERY MUCH! Lith is not a stupid and retard like most other mains. The side characters are well done. The story has depth.
Warning Spoiler:

Well I don´t like it because the Character was one of my favs, but it really helps the story that he died. Those who read a little bit longer than those stupid harem kids, will know wich main side Character I mean.

I haven't completely finished this but I'm over chapter 200 and so far it's basically flawless. The character development for the mc and main side characters is impeccable. The romance is also well developed as it's not just all sunshines and rainbows.
