Licht, a young man who has the special ability, "Resurrection," makes his living as a member of an S-Rank Adventurer's Party. However, the king, who feared his power, ordered his comrades to betray him, and in the end, executed him in an unfair manner. But Licht, who was fortunate enough to be revived because of his own skill, now swears to carry out his revenge on humanity…
I feel like I should mention that Licht doesn't seem motivated by vengeance at all, and there is no instance where fe "swears to carry out [feir] revenge on humanity." Fe does turn to living with and aiding demons, but it seems to be purely out of a sense of self-preservation more than anything. Even when the party-members who betrayed fem get killed, we don't see Licht really seeming to relish it (though fe's obviously not bothered by it either). Fe doesn't even act as though fe was waiting for them to get their comeuppance or that their deaths brought fem a sense of relief. There are none of the indicators that this is a story about revenge, so it's probably best to just ignore that part of the synopsis. Honestly, I feel like this story is much more closely aligned with dungeon management stories. Licht helps strategize the best ways to defend the dungeon, goes out and recruits some allies, and fights only when others start fights first. Fe isn't the dungeon master (that role is reserved for Aria, the demon lord fe resurrected), but fe does act as a trusted advisor. Most of the characters are girls, so it definitely fulfills that ludicrous aspect of harem stories, but there aren't any romantic tensions in the story as of yet. It's an okay story with only a few slightly annoying characters. The fact that everything goes smoothly for them combined with the calm personalities of Licht and others and the nature of the resurrection ability makes this feel like a laidback, low-stakes storyline--even though the stakes are technically life and death.

I read 10 chapters, and they suggest this is garbage. Unless it gets better later, but I doubt it ever would unless the author(s) changed. The story is meh. The "revenge" part is something the protagonist is uninterested in and just somehow happens, not to mention we only see one of three former party members die while the rest is forgotten and the protagonist doesn't even seem to hate the king who was behind everything. The way the protagonist befriends one random elf village and one random family in a dragonkin village and then thinks he has an alliance with both races is silly. Actually most of the plot is silly because everyone on mc's side is an idiot, and he's exemplifying that saying about the one-eyed king in the land of blind with his barely average smarts among them. Damn, we even have "daremo shinasenai saikyou healer" which means "best/supreme healer who won't let anyone die" in the title, yet in one of the chapters, mc wants to heal a dragonkin woman, says he can't heal diseases, and so he goes and gets her killed on purpose so that he can revive her... and then pretends he healed her and everyone believes him. The hero part is half-assed too, we don't even know why he is necessary when there seems to be no demon king or anything that the humans are going to face. Characters are just as trash. Like I said, everyone is an idiot, and not only does mc have to think of every single small thing for them, the manga also makes him seem like he's very smart because of it, but he's just making normal decisions (actually, even saying normal is a praise already). The protagonist himself is apathetic as hell and doesn't seem to have any real goal. It's random how he joins up with his new comrades and takes a position among them, no idea why they all listen to him, either, or what the demon lord is doing most of the time. The said comrades are very random too, being extremely 1-dimensional. It also doesn't make much sense how they are willing to be the mc's comrades. Also funny how he has no problem trusting them after being betrayed by his party that has been the first party he's shown his resurrection skill to because he had always been hiding his ability for fear of trouble and being used, which is exactly what happened with that party... Art is nothing special. It's quite average, in fact. Well, I suppose it's passable.
I don’t even remember last time, when I have picked something as boring as this series. The only exciting thing are occasional fights, but the series is mostly slice-of-life. This isn’t your typical slice-of-life. It’s life with OP Daemon lord. She is recruiting new members, going on trips and occasionally killing people. It sounds way more exciting on the paper than in reality, trust me. However, the main character isn’t Daemon lord, but human Licht. He was betrayed by his friends in somewhat stereotypical manner of protagonist betrayed by his adventurer party, because he is deemed as no longer useful. He has OP skill to resurrect anyone, who died including himself. Yep, he is effectively immortal. Using the skill, he resurrects residents of ancient dungeon including Daemon lord and her servants. You guess right, they are all females, but if you expect this to be harem, then I’ve to point out except very mild hints some of the girls like the MC there is close to zero romantic tension in the story. What about the revenge? You might ask. Yet, again despite the proclamation of MC to execute his vengeance upon the kingdom, he doesn’t seem putting serious effort and dedication to it. This element hangs in background, but practically brings nothing to the story. So, what is left then? MC just hangs around Daemon lord, who is the one pulling strings of the story and even then, it’s a lot of filler around occasional conflicts. Visually the series is ok. I have no issues with that. There are some violent scenes including MC getting beheaded, but other than that there is no nudity nor fanservice. Action parts are at best ok, except the parts with Daemon lord tend to be everything instantly dies. Overall, I do not recommend the series. I think there are better series in all categories this series tries to cover. This review is written after reading five volumes (all existing at the time) equivalent to 28 chapters. Japanese difficulty 4/10 (see my profile for details about various difficulty scores) It’s shounen series with furigana on all words. The text volume is above average. Density is normal. It has no overly difficult words nor expressions as far as I can remember.
