Description

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

Slava is an old man. On the verge of death, he has only two regrets; not perfecting his Martial Arts that had been passed down by his Master, and leaving his adopted daughter, as well as disciple, the Elf Alma, alone. His two dying wishes that he makes to her are that she take the hidden scroll of the school and learn its secrets, and that she would love, have a family, and be happy in his stead.

But Slava is reborn as an Elf, and with the same first name too! Being told that he was named after the only master of “Alma-sama”, it appears that some time had passed and his adopted daughter had become a very important person!

A decent read overall, but there are some fairly major issues with the setting and plotline.

First of all, it's a fantasy world and elves are known to be great at magic (according to author). Yet every elf you meet uses either unarmed martial arts or knives. The only magic seen is healing magic, but it's not really used to heal anything but cuts and scrapes.

The author says they use magic to strengthen their bodies, but no one accomplishes anything a well-trained human couldn't accomplish with muscles and technique in real... more>> life. So far the only purpose of a fantasy world seems to be using the long lives of the elves to add harem members based on his past life.

The fight scenes are nicely described but so far he's only fought against martial artists and people with knives so it gets kind of repetitive. You'd think there'd be fantasy monsters or people with actual weapons, mages, etc. It's just disappointing if you go in expecting fantasy. (Illustrations for volume 2 suggest it'll get more fantasy, but I suspect the bulk of fights will still be mostly realistic unarmed vs unarmed)

Characters are simple and straightforward. Character interaction is plain. The MC being condescending towards everyone gets a little old after a while.

The story is pretty much nonexistent so far. It's like a one-volume prologue setting up for the actual story, with a few short arcs set up as excuses for kung fu fighting. It's like a porn novel, only instead of s*x scenes you get gratuitous fight scenes. And that's fine, both are enjoyable, but it still feels empty without an overarching plot.

Overall it's "OK" and recommended for fans of unarmed martial arts and patting elves on the head. Not for people who like fantasy or world-building. <<less

Has the amazing trope of this old man died and reincarnated but still acts like a 7 year old... ? Inability to read overexaturated anime faces. You get the point the MC has been written flawed. The story itself is genetic and dull as well. Even as a "isekai" enthusiast not much to be found here.

It is early to give it a rating, but so far I like the story. The premise of the MC reincarnating several years into the future is unique, because someone that he know in the past before he died, still lives after his reincarnation. Unfortunately, time between new releases seem to take forever.

This novel follows martial artist Slava into his second live after he dies in the arms of his foster daughter, only to awaken 30 years later as an elven baby. His earlier life left him with strong martial arts' skills and he wishes to further hone his skills.

While living through the (let's face it: mandatory) school arc, he meets friends from his old life and makes bonds with new people. The cast is kept fairly small to this point, allowing characters some depth and personality. Some characterizations do fall a... more>> bit stereotypical (the gung-ho admiring youngster, the quiet and proper girl,...), but stereotypes aren't inherently bad, and here they work out ^^
The fight scenes are well-described and fun to read without being too flashy. The focus is on the MC's thoughts (and his character development) while providing funny scenes once in a while.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the story ^^ <<less
