Hated this novel purely because of the ending. Other than that it was a decent and relatively compelling fantasy story. As for why I hated the ending:

The whole story begins with Lambert (MC) being betrayed and killed at the command of the King he served extremely loyally for basically his entire adult life just because he is supposedly so strong and popular that someone with influence MIGHT be able to rally a rebellion around the cause of making Lambert the King regardless of whether Lambert himself wants to be King.... more>> This is because the current King is secretly a woman (one who Lambert is in hopeless love with), which is apparently not legal at the time.

This conflict is resolved at the end by having Lambert accept that this was the right call and yes he should've just laid down to die like a b*tch despite the fact that HE is the ONLY REASON the Kingdom is as powerful and peaceful as it is. Then he goes to the grave of the former King to cast off his resentments, kneeling down to protect the b*tch who agreed that betraying and mu*dering him was the right thing to do for all eternity.

I really cannot emphasize enough how much I hate this.

This is Basically Japanese version of wuxia, with non-human protagonist. Here MC status :

MAX Strength

MAX Speed

MAX Defense

MAX Technique

~ Stamina

No Magic

And his main opponent is Something akin to Giant Robot, or Immortal Vampire, or Immortal Transgender Necromancer.

The plot kinda remind me of Fate/Zero.

A romance above romance, a tale of faith and betrayal, with mix of yandere and headless horse.

Not going to lie the novel is a little slow at times. The summary is accurate, but the very different at the same time. I truly enjoyed it. (Kind of guessed the ending while closing in on the end, but none of the less still made me cry). Thankfully everything connects in the end (well, all but one but that is besides the point).

The MC is overly OP, blunt and sometimes coldblooded with a side of cuteness (can I call an undead general cute?) that makes him more (even though... more>> he is dead) human.

All in all I was happy to be able to find the novel as well as the raw because good god I'm impatient. <<less

A loose collection of stories about the same character dully fighting without any opportunity to have a personality. He has plenty of reason to have a personality, he just doesn't ever use it.

Here's the whole novel:

... more>>

1. MC shows up

2. Meets some new person in a city

3. Gets mixed up in drama he (or the reader) has no reason to be invested in

4. MC overpowers the villian who is inexplicably linked to some bigger threat

5. Rinse and repeat.


Side characters are abandoned too quickly to hold any value. Each arc is him sauntering off pointlessly to a new destination.

Essentially, we're looking at a story with a decent concept and an author with no ability to follow through on it. If it gets better later, if there's any improvement later, then the author messed up by being too boring to hold attention.

If the top comment's "Japanese Wuxia" doesn't read like a red flag to you, you're probably far gone enough to like this. <<less

I'm a sucker for very strong MCs that destroys arrogant enemies one sidedly.

MC is not s*upidly strong like one shoting a god but just overpowered enough to call him broken.

Also the MC is not like those sorry excuses of an isekai MC (the story is not an isekai, im just comparing the MC). The MC shows characteristics of a knight like he should but he will not hesitate to kill and deal with annoying problems the violent way.

Not going to lie I would have given it a 5 star if... more>> the story just revolved around revenge but thats my opinion, the strory right now is also good. <<less

The background politics are already interesting and somewhat unique, being background politics. So I'm really looking forward to this!

The author keeps emphasizing how super freaking abnormally strong the MC is. We get it. They are also mindful of how little the MC knows. It's almost to the point that I think he's a little slow. Just a bit. But I think that's good, I find OP characters that just wander around with a Protagonist's Aura pretty boring tbh. Death Notice (within human cap kind of OP) and Overlord have OP... more>> MCs know how to do it. So does Berserk, but Guts actually has a whole mountain to climb. <<less
