In a certain world, there was someone who excelled in magic combat, people called him 『Sage』.

Seeking the strongest combat art, he devoted himself to research every magic and combat arts in existence.

And the conclusion he arrived at was very cruel, 『My body is not fit for magic combat』.

Yet he didn’t give up.

He sealed his own soul with a magic art, and was reborn in a far-off future.

And the magic theory in the completely changed world he saw there was of unbelievably low level.

It's just not that good. The chapters are super short, as if the Author is just being lazy. The MC is supposedly this Powerful Sage, but he's not very smart...

Its literally like a slap to your face because, it builds up characters and relationships to only disappear. Even in the mist of important battles they become non-existence.

There has to be a Arc for every single thing. Dragon Enrollment + Barrier Magic + Summoning Magic + Killing Demons, Ect. Everything nonsensical. I can't believe its gotten a Manga...

  • There's the "No- Common Sense Protagonist" Despite not being a JP character... So it doesn't fit in

This is kind of sad to me. I like this novel at first beacase it has the same vibe as "death march" but after some reading it just clear as day that this novel is not on the same level.

Like any other OP main character, he break a lot of common sense it's the fun of this genre after all. But it's just that nothing more to offer. The plot look quite promising but it's just so boring that I can't stand reading anymore.

It's like you're reading death... more>> march but not the fun part inside at all. There're really nothing else I can describe this novel other than this. The pure reason I give it 2star not 1 is because the plot really look promising maybe it will pay off later or something? But I'm not gonna torture myself until then.

Similar with "Death March kara Hajimaru IsekaI Kyusoukyoku" translated by the same translator Sousetsuka, this is a story about over-powered main character breaking common sense. The difference is the MC in this series is more agressive than Satou from Death March and actually growing from weak to strong in a gradual way.

The pace of the plot in the story is quite fast with a little bit short word counts per chapter, but the author updated every other 2 days.

I'll make this review quite brief. The plot is quite bland and overused. As boring as it can be. It follows the typical JP protagonist reincarnation web novel where Some guy that is OP is reincarnated into a child's body and has powers sealed. Then it is just him acting like a 12 year old with "no common sense. " If you really like bland novels, this is for you. I only gave it 2 stars because of good translation quality

Typical OP MC usually I like it, but this MC is lacking common sense even if he's already reincarnated for 6 years already (he's 12 by the time he's going out)

For a 'genius' that's been living hundreds of years that is a very dissapointing point, he has 6 years to check the common sense of the world he's living in but he's still being an idiot that think everything is still like the standard of his past life. Grow the f**k up.

Can't stand this kind of idiotic MC...... more>> <<less

If IsekaI were food, this would be the equivalent to a plain burger from McDonald's. It barely has substance, and is bad for you. However, despite its lack in taste it's enjoyable in the sense that there's plenty of it and pretty easy to go through.

It's pretty much a guilty pleasure.

In case if you already forgot the synopsis or didn't read the title, it's about the strongest mage, sage, or whatever the hell you call them reincarnating himself into the future because his genetics lacked the talent to... more>> become stronger. He then awoke one thousand years into the future to discover that instead of humanity progressing in state of the art technimagibamboozlery, the lil' dunces regressed. That's a good concept, except everyone who ever lived vomits endless praises for the MC's actions. Hell, I could probably make an abridged example on the spot about the MC's massive ego dick.

Cuck: lmao u suck caus u sh*t at magic

MC: thats where ur wrong bucko

-proceeds to fire magic from his massive dong bomb-

Cuck: wtf u cant do that thats against the rules

MC: bitch I made the rules

-Cuck makes a surprised face and drowns from the sheer amount of bullsh*t maguffins spewing from the MC's giant schlong-

If you want to imagine the interactions in action, literally search up any Family Feud video with Steve Harvey as the host. It's not exact, but the feeling is all the same.

Translator is doing a real good job though so props to him/her on that.

3/5 not good not bad.

OP-MC slaughtering common sense for fun, that's how I would describe it. But that's it, just that nothing extraordinary new nor unique. Basically anyone that meet MC either get rekt, or admire him to praise him over and over.


... more>>

your usual OP-MC wrecking common sense and harem building, don't expect something great or new


The story is your usual trope with slight different name and spec, and also there seems to be some flawed logic behind the premise of reincarnated to the future, yet the magic and technology is getting on decline. (Though it is highly connected with the past self MC).

If you want to look for a enjoying slice of live, semI comedy, OP-MC, and wrecking story's common sense, then this is for you.

If you hate the typical mumbling of random japanese minded MC, or possibly thick headed, or something like that, this is not for you.

I'd say that this story is your usual OP main character that "breaks common sense" though I just wish the author has a bit more creativity.

You can see these types of story everywhere yet it's like the author doesn't even try to be creative.

It's like the "discrimination" is there just to give the MC a challenge that isn't even a challenge for him at all. Here's some examples of lack of creativity:

... more>>

Everyone that discriminates against him gets facerolled by his OP-ness in a mere chapter or two, or even in a few paragraphs.

The MC does something and everyone gets awfully surprised just to accept it like it's normal after a few words.

"Calamity Class" monsters appearing in front of him just so that he can show to others that he's OP.


There's even a massive plot hole just as early as 33 chapters that makes me wonder if the author had put some thought into the story or is this novel really just something to read for fun


The MC met a demon and after a chapter he magically and omnipotently arrived at a conclusion that the way the weakest crest was called the strongest crest now and his crest was discriminated against (coincedentally and magically) as a disqualified crest and how the magic and everything the humans do became incredibly weak and subpar than his time was because of the Demons.

The Demons did that because it'll be better for them if the humans are weaker but let's be honest here. The discrimination shown in the story is not something that just appeared out of nowhere, it's something that is deep-rooted as said in the story, and he's even stronger than the knight's commander at his age, that means their country is too weak.

If they're that weak then it would've been so easy. Too easy for demons to conquer them seeing as how that demon he fought has a higher magic output than him who could kill a "Calamity Class" monster.


Overall, even if I'm harsh with my review, I still read it because I like "reincarnation" and "transmigration" type of novels.


I just don't understand the high ratings/review

Okay, this novel is not bad at first but keep declining in every chapter until it's very unbearable to read.

The author bring the lack of common sense too far that it's not even funny anymore, it's just... REALLY? it's kind of novel you can't take seriously, just like Manga wo Yomeru.

The response of MC's lack of common sense is also weird, no one take advantage of naive, and stupid MC, no scheme, everyone is stupid or maybe. kind? everyone is good person, including the enemy.

Maybe because I... more>> read too many chinesse novel with their scary scheme and tricks. <<less

From what I have read so far into the story this is like a usual Jap novel. OP MC with no common sense or the knowledge of how to talk to people especially girls, mind you he is someone who has lived for hundreds of years. From the looks of it its going to turn into another one of those harem novels with bunch of girls all over MC by the end of it, and MC still having problems talking to them. Like he is a old man in... more>> the previous life and now he cant even talk to a 13 year old girl. I understand that he has lived his previous life in solitude, but common thats just stupid. Another part that keeps bothering me is how everyone just accepts how op MC is like its common everyday thing even though they have some crazy reaction every time he does something.

Well if you are into a OP MC that is very thick skinned with people around him not questioning anything then this is a novel for you.

I give this novel 3. 0 at the best, I dont know why Im being so generous

The story is about lack of common sense, yes, the MC is lack of common sense and so naive.

The people around him also naive, even the demon is naive, everybody is so simple minded its like no story at all

Nobody become the MC enemy except the Demon, cause you know demon is evil lol

... more>> The only good thing about this is the translator is good and fast

You want to know more? Ok, MC is OP, he is reincarnated from old world and have god like power, in this modern world, every knowledge is lost so you know the rest (in more advance old world he is like the best like god, and in this weak modern world, he is basically the god)

No plot, the author is just make on the go, badly, the jokes always the same (MC is sooooo op), everybody always in awe, the character has no depth

If you want story worth reading, dont read this <<less

Would not recommend. This story is one of the worst written OP MC isekaI stories I've ever read. Here's a list of the most extreme problems with the novel:

  1. The premise is extremely lazy. The MC has what he considers to be an inferior crest, but he still manages to become the most powerful magician in his era. However, despite being the strongest, he is still not satisfied and casts a reincarnation spell on himself to hopefully reroll into a better crest. Before I read this starting garbage, I didn't believe it was possible for a worse starting premise than "MC gets hit by truck and is reborn". I now stand corrected.
  2. By chapter 5, it becomes incredibly clear that in his new life, the technology and magic has regressed severely. However, the MC REPEATEDLY refuses to believe it no matter how many examples he encounters or what people tell him. He is dense to the point that I would be banging my head against a wall even if this story WERE a misunderstanding themed comedy, which it is not.
  3. The MC is SO powerful that he's beating much, much stronger opponents even as a child. He is so strong and ridiculously overpowered that he leaves no room for anyone else to do anything. He waves his hand and creates super strong items, casts super powerful spells, and upends common sense all without any training or practice.
  4. As a result of 3, all the side characters have nothing to do except hang on to his coattails. They are not people. They are instruments that are constantly used to comment on how awesome MC is.

Do NOT read this story, even if you're new to the genre. I firmly believe trying to will make you less intelligent. The novel is nothing more than an exercise in juvenile wish-fulfillment and has almost no redeeming qualities.

Frankly, I just had to stop at chapter 28... the main character is just too stupid for things to be enjoyable.

He doesn't get that the level of things is lower and he doesn't get that the value of items is higher... he's just too unbelievably dumb...

And there is no character development in this short time. Now, a story doesn't HAVE to have character development to be enjoyable... but if the MC starts out THIS stupid... then he needs quick character development...

If you want a fun story about... more>> an OP MC... this isn't for you... it's a badly written story about and OP MC and the entire story just has one freaking joke replayed over and over again... the MC not understanding anything...

Now, some people may still like this... but objectively... this is a badly written story... <<less

The series is disappointing, mainly because the MC falls under the "super amazing but amazingly dense" trope. In this case, despite all the evidence presented to him, he just doesn't seem to understand how the new world he's in works. He repeatedly ignores that he's now the strongest person alive or that the magic from his past life has largely been forgotten. Also, he doesn't bother to find out the history of this new world, despite there being the resources to do so around him.

Also, apparently in his past... more>> life, which apparently lasted over a thousand years, he never had a girlfriend, and doesn't know how to act around a girl he likes.

The world also seems custom made to show off how amazing the MC is.

He doesn't even have to try; on his first day of school, the principal calls him to his office and begs him to literally fight for the school's honour or they risk being forced to submit to heir rivals.

Simple but not bad: basically unplug your brain to avoid common sense alarms, and you'll be fine.

The main character (and the whole cast) is a little too stupid for my tastes, but it's still bearable. Also the plot is a little too quick to solve.

It is fun to read, but come on a 1100 year old person lacking in common sense hello author? Sure he reincarnated into the future but, a 1100 year old person (soul) being all that naive and not minding the surrounding?

Edit: So yeah. It is a good read. Fast paced, no dilly dallying. I would give this novel 3 star. So why am I complaining early about character? Because he is the character the story revolves around!

Edit: Lost counts how many times I changed my review. I have grown more... more>> fond of this novel and Sousetsuka is doing good translation.

How to write a boring novel:

  1. Take a powerful person and reincarnate him with his memories
  2. Give the new world no real ranking system
  3. Make the people around him weak af
  4. Let the MC have all the knowledge of powerful techniques making him OP af
  5. Let the MC have no real opponent which makes him literally the strongest
and this is what 'the strongest sage... ' is. (Up to ch 94)

I tend to like this type of novel, but its done so freaking poorly. The beginning is fine enough but the lack of common sense is destroying the whole crest type power system in the story.

(spoilers below)
... more>>

It was a new system so I was excited, but the MC beat the seasoned father in combat at age 6 and acted like oh is that incredible? He's supposed to be this freaking sage but he doesn't even have the basic deduction/reasoning skills.

Furthermore, when MC is trying to reinvent/teach the old/right way to do magic, he acts the freaking same. Introducing chantless, enchanting normal weapons into legendary grade weapons. He acts like thats nothing special. He did foreshadow how someone screws over the people so that their magic system sucks like hell, but he doesn't do anything about it and simply tries to change the traditions of an entire world by teaching things at school.

Another point is how illogical the plot is. He makes a freaking legendary sword in 10 secs and that never comes up again (besides teaching other students or other students bring it up). That kinda thing should have more consequences, (greedy people, gov control, untold fame) BUT NOTHING COMES OUT OF IT. Also, he beats the knight captain of all freaking things and has chantless magic but its too dangerous to go into a dungeon unless he gets 4 other students with him.


(no more spoilers)
This just might be my opinion, but MC just has the stupidest problems for his power/skill level. The plot is also really slow considering how much he has to do to face those problem. Actually saying its slow is wrong, but pointless. I like how overpowered he is, but when he has to do so much pointless stuff in a inefficient way (teaching) with no real consequences, it just makes it so painful to read. The plot is literally a straight line where the author alternates between making him overpowered but then how to make him normal with the whole world going at his naive pace.

Okay let keep this short.

We know the OP common sense breaking MC genre. Yeah, this is one.

However, you don't have to invent the wheel every time. Like, the Avenger movie, everything in the story is predictable. You know the good guy will win. You know the MC will be OP but what truly make or break it is how it was tell.

Like a clown who hold no shame in being the clown. The MC in this story is a down to earth guy from the Era on... more>> the myth level of might, so ofcourse the today era seemed like a gathering of inept idiot compare to him. Moreover, unlike a certain people (I am looking at you Mile), he hold no attempt in hiding his power and that kind of benefit everyone with any amount of intelligence and save the reader from slow plot. And he have a good reason to do that too. The main humor here is how the MC see the world common sense and he is totally correct.

Like Everyone is a Returnees, the strong point of this novel is that it tell it joke well. Old joke can work better is it is told correctly and this guy go this in spade. One problem thought, people should at least question MC a little bit more.


well considering the fact that they have demon invasion and the dude who would question him should be directly suspect. This cushion the fault somewhat but not enough honestly

It's a good story. Since the MC is already OP in the past, even with the handicap first crest, it's not surprising that he will be more OP in his new crest in his new life.

But since the world's magic level became low and his OP, and there's so many characters that rely on him, it became boring. Also it became annoying when the MC said lines like "I could do better in my previous life but this is the limit of what can I do now" repeatedly, even... more>> during battle, when the enemy will do a strong attack he always have a hidden trump card prepared, yeah REPEATEDLY.

Well, I feel like even when I'm currently in chapter 50's I feel like I am reading an early chapters, so maybe we can expect changes in the future releases. HOPEFULLY <<less

Personally, I don't dislike novels where MCs are OP or expanding his harem at every corner, or the fact that most of the actions that the MC takes defies common sense. However, I've seen quite a few other novels with similar context and this is just more or less copy-pasted content for quite a few other novels.

... more>>

The MC, despite being several hundreds of years old, can't even handle a girl and still stutters when talking to one. Like, hello? You managed to slay a dragon famed to be the world's strongest, but you can't handle a conversation with a girl? Where did your experience of living for hundreds of years go?


Anyway, moving on, a part of the novel which is a total turn-off for me is the fact that the author keeps recycling the "lack of common sense" card. Just about every other action that the MC makes, the people around him will more or less go "oh I forgot, this guy doesn't have common sense". Seriously, mentioning it once or twice is fine but the joke gets old after awhile and quickly gets lame. "Magi's Grandson" is also another novel in which the author keeps pulling the "lack of common sense" card at every corner of the novel and it's so pitiful that the author can't think of something else to create humor <<less

The intro is easy to misunderstand, in the past, 4 crests have the same value in the world the one he had is by no mean weak, it's just the only one not suit for combat.

The story, no, one (or a few) of the main point of the story is the same as "world teacher"

While the number of word is average, somehow the actual story in each chapter is (extremely) short. It's best to combine 2 chapter as 1. MC... in early state (until chap 20 and might even... more>> further) he's almost void of common sense.

As far as the story goes, it's more like MC reincarnate to the "past" rather than the future, it doesn't "look" like magic has gone down but rather like a stone age. But unfortunate... it is, and hell, he's like a god in his past life <<less
