A poor student in the West Road Academy, the shame of the Blake family chooses to die after living a painful existence. However, a new soul suddenly takes over the body of the student.
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.
While I am currently writing this I've read 23 chapters and there are only 23 chapters out (not raws). The manga seems ok but it doesn't seem like it's gonna improve anytime soon so a review at this moment seems appropriate. STORY So basically the premise of this story is that an overpowered main character "dies" and is reincarnated 4000 years later in a weaker body but has the knowledge to make himself stronger at a rapid pace. The story is very ordinary; while ordinary doesn't mean bad, the story's execution is where it really fails. The story starts off with a small bullying arc which is often seen in these sorts of stories. The bullying in this story is based on discrimination of magic prowess but even if thats the case it seem to have no hold on the actual story other than to have some "bad guys" the MC can beat up to show his how cool and strong he is. This discrimination might come back in later chapters but it seems unlikely to be a big part even if it does because the in all of the 23 chapters world building is second priority if a priority at all since would rather display how cool and strong the MC can be. CHARACTERS There are currently 2 important characters, the MC and a love-interest/student. So let's start with the MC; he's selfish, spiteful, playful, flirtatious and cold at times but that doesn't excuse or answer the reason why he say or does some things.For example he will announce that he is over 4000 years old for no real reason and when questioned about this he will shove the question into a corner and just not answer. And this is not just a one time occounce but something that crops up multiple times with no reason other than the fact so the audience can go "ohhh please tell people how cool you are!". Anything else he does can mostly be summed up to he's just playing around which is an easy catch all. As for his tagalong love interest she is mostly there as someone who can respond to the MC's actions but in a haughty, flustered tone or inner monologue.While this sort of interaction can add to a story it more makes the character feel like a restant to the MC's actions and comes off my annoying than anything. There only really one side character with any depth and there not much to say about them, bad or good. Art It's pretty good. 4.5/10 It's ok but could easily and most likely will get worse.
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.
