MC is reincarnated into a heartless world where only the strongest survive, literally.
The noble has the right of life and death to those beneath them but on top of the noble you have the Magus, the almighty enlightened beings that pursuit the truth.
It is a world where every Magus of the same level has to fight amongst themselves to get every inheritance and ressources possible to pursuit their path.
In this world where only the cool headed survive, our MC, Leylin has been reincarnated with his loyal A.I. chip fused into his soul.
MC, Leylin is in no way overpowered, unlike other novel, he does not "jump" level and fight being above him without consequences, only when he has to, he uses every means at his disposition to survive.
He always weights the pros and cons before taking action. He will not slaughter without reason, that being said he won't fight for justice without any profit neither.
But if he has the power and happens to be able to help without consequence when passing by he will. So amongst all the psychopath Magus in this world he's probably one of the best haha.
As for being the scientist part, I really like it - I am a student in biotechnology and most of our current experiments even the simplest task as for counting the cells we have computers taking care of it. So I can totally see if MC comes from a few decades or even a century futuristic world having an A.I assistant.
Little rant in spoiler -
Computer gives us answers we need, but conclusions are done by ourself. Do you ever doubt and question your calculator after typing 1+1 on it ?
Every experiment we do it is done with a machine assisting us I really don't understand people ranting about him using his A.I as an assistant, have you ever been in our labs? And my lab is an uni lab not corporate lab... Even before of thinking submitting any theories it has to come with the support and analysis of computers to prove the results first. Honestly thanks to these review I even had a nightmare of being in a lab without any computing device. It is really like insulting scientists of today of not being one because of using high-tech devices. I really can't support any of you. If I was transmigrated 60 year before with a scientific calculator I can already see people here giving me long face... As for that A.I chip... I would totally love to have one as powerful as the one he has one day hahahaha
As for this world. It is really alive... Every places, every characters, be it men or women interact with our MC and have thought of their own, every character in this world scheme, against MC, other organisations or such following their best interests.
It feels so alive, so colorful. Nothing is stagnant, alliances, friendships, enemies; all of it can change so it is not boring to know about them. It really change a lot from other novel where every team stays the same and never change.
Our MC, Leylin, based on this will make decision some you will agree with, some perhaps not, but as far as I have read he stays true to himself and the only thing he never betray is his own interest.
This is what got me hooked. He is so interesting and so true to himself that I can't help but be amazed by his character. I just keep on reading about what he will do chapters after chapters.
I really thank the translators for translating this novel and letting me discover what an amazing character this MC, Leylin is. Intelligent, hardworking, determined, cunning, apathetic, manipulative and evil everything in the tag fits in his personality!
Honestly, what an exemplary and great Magus our MC, Leylin is for the new world he's been reborn in.
there were great comments on this about how it was so sweet people had diabetes reading it, haha
It was not really broken due to the girl's own will, really as pointed out she was influenced. And MC did not totally break off with her they just remained friends, just not close friends, they still talk to each other and goes to family party together, like just your usual childhood but not too close friend, you know what I mean ?
Like, I hope MC's bro will keep being a bro as they are so good to each other. MC defended his bro when he was wronged even though he would get in trouble for it and the latter didn't really care but when he saw MC getting wronged in turn he just went mad as well. I feel like that's how friendship should be : I can call my friend stupid but don't you dare do the same to my friend before me. Not exactly what happened but you know that feel
as they are already leaving the academy then their places, it all happened within 30 chapters.
She knows exactly who the murderer is, doesn't go to the police station maybe because of lack of proof or none would believe her if she says she remembers his face, fine.
But god d*mn like she then decide to go back to the very shop of the said killed even better she walks into a dark alley alone even though the ghost pointed out to her she was followed then proceed to confront the killer going so far as taking the risk to make sure the killer knows that she knew his identity, I mean what is the point, why are you even provoking him, why are you even doing this.
Was that your plan to die alone like this when the ML asked you of your plan ? Worst. The next chapter I only read a few lines because she asks very surprisingly "are you and the cops following me" ? O. M. G. I can't. I stop here.
It gets even worst. I was reading more because in consideration of all the good reviews here. But holy.. She just do whatever is in her head and acts it's cute. I don't see a girl that's 25 and been through hard life, work to pay herself in jobs etc. Basically there is not a single thing mature about her.
Anyway let's talk about c54 because god dammit. She just NEVER listen, the grandma clearly told her spirits could be bad and show vision of whatever they wanted however she just goes on with what the ghost shown her and confront the people that could be potential killer in a remote place, YES AGAIN. Even the plot gets recycled, incredible. Anyway because of that very confrontation she discovers that she was wrong, goes back to grandma acting cute because *teehee* I'm 25 it can't be my fault. This VERY confrontation leads to the suicide of the girl she confronted. Yeah keep acting cute. She concludes that it just can't be her fault and all, honestly reading the thoughts of this girl makes me sick. Yeah the girl MC confronted was using a another one's identity but she never killed anyone. You destroyed a happy couple and lead a girl that opened an orphanage to kill herself and concluded you had nothing to do with this ?! Ok.
