Lucas Trowman was the greatest archmage in history until he was condemned by Demigod to spend eternity losing his mind. But 4,000 years later, he’s thrust back into this world, into the body of Frei Blake, the weakest, most un-talented student at the prestigious Westroad Academy for mages. After all this time, the world of magic has barely progressed. Could this be the work of Demigod? Determined to find out, Lucas seeks to reach the highest levels of power once again and get his revenge.
It says this is based off a novel, and I could easily imagine the source story being awful; I have the sneaking suspicion the artists tweaked it a little and added substantially to the quality of the characters. That being said, despite having a lot of the standard cliches, the execution is well done, even nuanced. Things like the protagonist's body being instinctively afraid of his bullies due to residual emotions/memories, him being attracted to women who are his mental age instead of being a mental 50-year-old creeping on schoolgirls, and the first actually sad reincarnation scene I have read, really make the series for me. The way the protagonist is drawn occasionally annoys me, but overall the art is quite good. So far, definitely worth a read.
The first what, 10 or so chapters I think were very enjoyable. After that (I'm probably dropping this at chapter 17) it just got super boring. Isabelle started following him everywhere, I really don't like deuteragonists in these sort of revenge or from weak to how they were before they lost their power. Also, the chapters just kept dragging... it went on for much longer than it should have so it got boring super quickly. Sure, the scenes where our protagonist fights are hella sick, but that doesn't last NEARLY as long as the 'filler'. Despite these points I've made I'm still going to rate it 7/10, because that's what I would've rated it if it were only the start and kept the quality throughout. I might still read this if there's nothing else to read but I highly doubt that.
I was discouraged to read this after I saw a review giving it a terrible rating. I will say this read isn't for everyone. While some of you may adore tropes or stories like this, others will find the plot frustrating. Personally, I liked where the story started and was becoming, that is until a female character came along. I'm just the type who prefers solo mcs and I don't mind a little teaming up here and there but it seems this girl is gonna be relevant to the story. The overpowered mc enters a body of a weak man and shows up to the academy the next day like a big shot, showing off some of his superiority. I figure he's never been noticed in a way like this before, but the moment he shows a little bit of strength, power-lust female character starts taking interest in him. She starts clinging onto him and getting flustered at every thing he does. He could motherfucking breathe and her panties would be soaked. She acts like a weak retard because I guess being helpless is sexy? Only in moments of need though, she'll show the powers that she's had. She's also pretty naggy. She reminds me of Lucy from fairytale. If you like fairytale, and you like Lucy, you'll probably like this story so give it a go.
