The Death Mage Who Doesn’t Want a Fourth Time

It has started with a nice motivation: MC life was sh*t, scum incompetent bug god reincarnated him into a even sh*ttier one, MC suffered hell for 10 years, then was killed by the one who got every blessing that must have been his, reunites with said bug god, promises to get his revenge on everyone including him, gets cursed by bug god to have a sh*ttier life to die quickly and be reincarnated/wiped out on the fourth and final time, MC promises he'll live to get his revenge on bug... more>> god and the 100 others reincarnators, only to some chapters later the the MC be mellowed down in his third time, and fail to get his revenge at the village who burned his mother, and then proceeds to become as incompetent as possible...

It was because of novels like this that I got to know xianxia stories, to quench my thirst of good efficient ruthless revenge driven MCs who promises revenge and do it in the most glorious of ways if you ever cross their bottom line a single time.

Why, I ask, why you write a MC only to suffer, you write his life as complete hell on heart, make him vow a edgelord revenge promise, only to throw all that world and character building in the trash chapters later, denying his right for vengeance by means of generic sh*tty harem rom-com slice of life writing? Worse yet is when you write then finally getting their revenge, only to forgive the scum and say that classic "i can be better than you", then let the scum live, even if said scum killed everyone that the MC cherished... <<less

Finally a true revenge boner, his world was sh*t, the revelation that everything he did on his first run was for nothing, the people of this world seriously contend with those on Tate no Yuusha on being the sh*ttiest kind of people you ever know. I ragequitted JP revenge stories after reading many that in the end the MC became a complete eunuch wimp and forgave and forgot all the sh*t the world made him feel. And this decision made me know the glorious xianxia stories where the MC has... more>> balls of steel, and his revenge involves killing everyone related and their dog and then salting the land for good measure (I'm looking at you Renegade Immortal <3).

Well, this review has gone places, but my point is: I hope that those harem and romance tags doesn't plummet this novel to hell like every other i've read before, even though that was the main reason I got to know xianxia revenge stories in first place, and I seriously hope that this MC and his yandere sidekick won't mellow down, be as ruthless as an xianxia MC, and NEVER decide to forgive forget and go the: "i won't mess with you if you don't mess with me at least 1229394949 times and kill everyone that I love and leave me as a battered sack of bruises on the sideroad" route (I'M LOOKING AT YOU TATE NO YUUSHA AND ARIFURETA!!!) <<less
