The MC is a reincarnated assassin from earth who died then went to hell then was summoned by an archmage. Not only is that premise a little long, the hell bit also does not come in play, nor does it seem like the main character carried anything away from his experience in hell so theres that.

So far the novel has been the MC mostly lying to people trying to convince them he is a harmless, and honest person. Except he reveals to one of the people that he is deceiving... more>> that he is actually a master martial artist relatively quickly. Overall the whole novel reeks of the author making everyone have infantile levels of intelligence to just make the not very bright main character seem like a genius. I believe this mostly to the convenient plot made against him which was laughable at best, and the fact the lies he makes would not fool a child, so how does it fool a incredibly powerful archmage? The answer is that everyone in this novel is retarded execpt the MC.

Edit: Although I have to admit the one combat scene we have seen was written pretty well, so I still have some hope for this novel, and will check up in a hundred chapters or so. <<less

So the 5 stars will be updated throughout reading whenever I remember to come back to it. So far naturally it's too early to say whether it's great. However, this novel so far is pleasantly one of the most surprising reads I have had in months now. All together I would say I have read over 80+ different chinese/korean novels. This one though at least as far as I can remember has been one of the best LOGICAL novels I have had the pleasure of reading. It was honestly surprising... more>> how logical the author made the MC actions to be. Which is laughable considering that's what good writing should be.

With that out the way and to not drag this out. The plot is still moving forwards. The character growth of the MC has been fantastic! His opinion on something changed. So for anyone who has ever read Otherworldly Monarch, if you have you should understand exactly what I mean by opinions changing. I think I read up to 100+, but essentially the MC would place his feelings and thoughts of power from his previous world above the current world that he was in. Or to not be specific, think about a time where you're reading a novel and the MC did something so ridiculously dumb and you just stop and wonder if you should drop it or not? I have been there. Too many times now. I have dropped at least 15 novels this year. Simply because of how silly some of the decisions MC's make, as well as how ridiculously stubborn 'My way or high way' (where author writes in circles to justify the MC) vibe you always get.

Magic is in this world! Fleshed out? Nope just 15 chapters. But! We have seen three different schools so far. I am sure there will be many more as well. Side characters only two so far. Too early to tell for others maybe, but I enjoy them both. They even have interactions! Not some senseless background characters. This ended up being longer...

This novel is truly a breath of fresh air simply because of some of the stuff I said. With all that said it's just 15 chapters. But I really see SO much potential here. I just hope the author doesn't do it a disservice.

Just give it a try. I will update it in the future when I have time. So far it's 5 chapters a week but we'll see. <<less

It's pretty good. It gives a different and better feeling compare to other transmigation CN.


Assassin MC has the habit of an assassin. Clever, scheming, natural actor.

Although MC was an assassin, he is not heartless.

Plot and pacing so far seems pretty decent.

MC is not OP in magic (so far).


A bit hypocrital. MC assassin who only killed those who deserve death cringes me.

I feel that some side characters are stupified.

This novel was good, I didn't expect it, I was bored and considering all the "assassins" novels we can see on novelupdate I didn't expect much from it. Yet it was good, at least the beginning, he dies because of karma and even his rebirth is logical and at least until now he still has the mindset of an assassin and act like one unlike most novel where the assassin loses more IQ as the novel goes.

It is quite good in terms of plot so far, the MC is intelligent and deadly, using tricky realistic skills to kill powerful people why he is still weak. He is good at acting, and has manipulated everyone he has met so they don't suspect him. It is worth noting that he hasn't met many people yet, though.

My only worry for this story if that the MC, Anfey, is quite OP, with his assassin skills. They are very well explained and reasonable for an assassin to possess, but he managed... more>> to kill an archmage through trickery and knowledge, before killing two master mages through misdirection and stabbing one through a door. He then kills a medium master swordsman, by stabbing his foot through the floor, and pretending to go onto the roof, then stabbing his other foot through the floor. He then had little difficulty finishing him off. I think it is justifiable to worry that he will have no opponents later in the book when he gets more powerful. He mainly used extreme trickery and misdirection to kill these people, as well as a trap, but if he uses these tactics to kill other powerful people, with also having the power to back it up in a straight fight, he will be OP.

That said I do enjoy the realism used in these fight scenes. It is truly understandable that many of his opponents were arrogant and unaware, leading to him being able to surprise attack them and finish them before they could react, meaning the powerful characters still need to pay attention to less powerful people, so he may be challenged in the future by those on a similar power level to him.

And last thing, despite the good explanations, I still find it hard to believe that the MC, an extremely skilled assassin, was killed by a meat skewer. <<less

somewhat interesting in the beginning but slows down soon after. Not sure what went wrong but it just lacks tge umph to it, cant really capture my interest for it.

its no where repetitive as far as I have read though. Maybe it cuz its felt separated into too many small segments and it just doesn't fall as a whole in the overall context and the MC also doesn't make full use of what he has n is too affected by those around him

It started well enough to continue reading. It had its ups and downs, but slighly entertaining. However, the story started to become annoying. The MC and his companions had to go on the run (the reason is aslo stupid, they defended themselves), and they had to cross a forest. I believed they might encounter some dangers while traversing the forest, and move to the next kingdom. Yet, the author decides to focus more on the forest than the actual plot. It seems like most of the story has taken place... more>> in the forest, this how long the current arc has been. Also, with the addition of some drama, it seems like the MC and his companions are playing house. Then, instead of trying to kill find ways to kill their enemies, they kill an innocent unicorn, instead. <<less

It had a 3.6 average rating when I wrote this review, which was a bit harsh. The story portraits the element of professionalism of an assassin somewhat well. It's not the stunning secret martial art or technique that explains his edge over other, but the mentality of a miser. You won't see the protagonist kills on equal ground unless he can't help it, does things without prior consideration in mind or let plot armor secures his escape route.

Its only demerit, IMO, is its dryness. It's too down to earth at... more>> times. I can't tell where exactly it is sub par yet you couldn't shake that it gets bland after a while. The writing also feels a bit self-centered, which is classic for chinese novel that doesn't have comedic undertone.

All in all, good stuffs. Hopefully, it will add more fantasy elements and character developments in the future. 4/5. <<less
