Synopsis Tsuyokute New Saga is a story about a fantasy world of magic, swords, classical fantasy races (elves, dwarves, demons, monsters), and time travel. The world is segregated into the humanoid and demon factions. After a long period of peace the demons, led by the Demon Lord, began their great invasion against the humanoid races. The humanoids were greatly devastated in the suprise war of annihilation after 400 years of peace. Kail, the main character and heroic magic swordsman, "The Hero of Humanity" who rose to glory on the battlefield, attempts a final effort to kill the Demon Lord along with his valiant companions. Successfully slaying the Demon Lord all his companions died in the battle and he is on death's door. Noticing a strange object of immense magical power that was nearby being protected by the Demon Lord, Kail reaches out to it. In his last momemts of life he activates a powerful magic throwing his conciousness back in time. Four years before the beginning of the war, before the humanoid races were slaughtered, before nations collapsed, before his friends and family died he burns with resolve to protect all. Thus his New Saga begins. I read the novel (a source of in-depth information) in addition to the manga. Story This story has a lot of potential. Kail, who knows all that will happen in the coming years is ready to go full throttle in defending everything he once lost. He's gained a second chance and decides to prepare to save humanity from the impending danger. There is just one downside, he's lost all the reputation he gained on the battlefield and is now a "nobody". Since he has no reputation his opinions and warnings will go completely unheeded by kings and queens because he's just some kid. Deciding that he must become a hero to have his words listened to he embarks on his journey to gain reputation and warn the nations of the coming war of annihilation. The story feels similar to playing an RPG game for the second time. Kail knows all the secrets and tricks necessary to boost his power, money, and reputation. Secrets, events, people, treasure, dungeons, monsters, enemies, and future companions are all known and he intends to fully utilize all his knowledge. It feels quite rewarding to see him "cheat" as an experienced player in the game of life. The justaposition of his pure goals with his "no bullshit" expedient nature makes him a respectable character. Characters Main Character: Kail (Hero of Humanity) Kail is a kind hearted person who whole-heartedly loves his family and friends, but having lost them once he is now absolute in his conviction to protect them. His goals are pure, but Kail is a dark hero who will do anything to accomplish his goals. In the previous war he used drugs, steroids, brutally trained his body, and did anything to give him an advantage in the battle against the demons. Now his New Saga has begun and he intends to do whatever he must to save the humans and his loved ones. His "no bullshit" personality and actions are his best points. He thinks about his actions, keeps secrets, uses people, has noble goals, and isn't afraid to dirty his hands. Beginning Companions: Seran (best friend) Perverted goofball, chases women, no girls like him, the most talented swordsman in the world, dirty fighter/slaughterer, his foolish appearance conceals his intelligence Urza (Kail's love interest during the war) A wandering elf who specializes in spirit magic, hates liers, honest personality, a little bit tsundere, nice personality, Lize (girl next door) Childhood friends with Kail and Seran, very energetic and innocent, happy personality, powerful fist fighter, brute, easily embarassed, naive, cooks like a talented housewife, concerned by Kail's drastic change in personality

(70 chapters in, Slight spoilers) The series is extremely somber, there is no comedic moments, the little romantic moments found in the beginning of the series are treated as a joke. There is only worrying, more worrying, and mystery. If this is your cup of tea, feel free to read it. It is certainly not mine, hence the reason why I'm dropping it. The story is average, its shaping up to be an amazing story, though with how slowly it updates, it'll take a couple decades for a satisfactory conclusion. Unfortunately, there is little to no world building, and no satisfactory conclusion to arcs. The actions the MC has taken seems to have little to no impact on the future he's desperately trying to prevent. At most, so far, he's only made baby steps, when he has the capabilities of making substantial leaps and bounds.  The art is okay. I heavily dislike the MC's interactions with the supporting cast, but not the characters themselves. Once again, the tone is incredibly somber, but there are very few interactions between him and the person he loves. The characters who questioned "Why does he act as if he knows the future?" never question him again after their initial meeting. The few interactions that exist feel as if they're forced, as if they're puppets, and noone reacts to the main character's supernatural abilities.  Overall, I generally hate somber works, but this one was okay. If it was slower paced, focused more on natural character interactions, and allowed the MC to make better decisions are show the rationale for making the decisions he made, this series could easily become a whole lot better.
