Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious ‘Beasts’. The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts. However, this new safe haven Regul Aire has a dark secret behind it.

Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.

Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his ‘Daughter’ once felt for him so long ago. Together, through their everyday interactions in the ‘orphanage’, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting.

This is a story about a man who lost everything. His home, his people, his friends, his loved ones..... all lost in the passages of time. As the last human on the face of the world he has to start a new in a strange new world ruled by creatures unfamiliar to him. He has to cope with loses and deal with wounds that will never heal, physically and mentally. Until one day he meets a group of girls who has to face the same fate as he did 500... more>> years ago. There he has to face his past and once again step forward.


Do not get this wrong. This is NOT a harem novel series just because he is in the middle of a group of girls. I got some spoilers from other forums and he sticks with one girl. I think this is worth the read because it is a story that will pull at the heart strings as you find out what the MC has to go through. I will update this review as the story progresses.

Edit 1: Boy does this novel have interesting twists and turns. Questions as to why the world came to be are clearly spelled out to you and make a lot of sense. Not only does the MC have a sad fate but so does the Heroine. <<less

This is a story of suffering and darkness with the glimpse of light and heart warming. This is a story of a man who has lost everything, who was broken, who tried to get up just to be put down again, who desperately to find hope just to lost it again.

This is a great story, but a very sad one. It can't make it to my top 3 but definitely in the top 10 of all the novels i have read.

Edit: just finish the book and have to say as... more>> expected for the most part. Still hasn't make it to my top 3 thou. <<less

This is a real gem hidden amongst the piles of mediocre, average and occasional trash story on Novel Updates.

The premise is quite unique with humanity already extinct and the remaining races stuck upon a limited number of floating islands. The Beast's that roam the surface are still a clear and present danger to the inhabitants of the isles and that is where the fairies come in. They are the only thing that can deal with Beast's but the mortality rate is high. ... more>>

Only by self destructing can they hope any guarantee of winning.

The MC was a former pseudo Brave from an orphanage whose body is now broken beyond repair.

Now enter an amazing story filled with gut punch feels, awesome narrative, great character development and the best LN romance I have ever seen. This is one hell of a emotional rollercoaster. Honestly, this series is one of the best I have EVER read. <<less

It is a good novel (as far I can see for now). This is a bit different than your average jp novels that you can find in this website.

This isn't about a OP protagonist who lives a happy life with his harem. Rather, it's about a [Broken] character in this new world. In fact, this is basically the novel's main selling point.

The summary describes him well in this regard:

A young man who lost everything five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.

The story might flare up your emotions as you progress your reading, with how bleak and depressing it can be. I don't think it's at the level of some tragic masterpieces, but it is more darker than your average japanese fantasy novels


There isn't any [mecha], so that might be a turn off for some people who likes it or must have it along with their sci-fi.

Other than that, you should try giving this a read. <<less

So far it's one of the best light-novels I've ever read. At first glance it might seem kinda cliche, with all that loli-warrior-harem stuff, but actually it shows us a really cruel setting. The protagonist, who only suffered troughout his whole life, the girls, living in... well actually they aren't even living... So yes, definitely worth reading. The translation quality is great (perfectly understandable, and easily readable), and it is one of those books, which if you start, you just simply can't put it down until the end. Looking forward... more>> for the full release of volume 2 - and of course for the others :) . <<less
