A character with extreme difficulty and the worst performance.

Baek Yu-Seol was the worst character in “Aether World” history because he couldn’t use magic in a world where everyone did.


[Due to the wrong ending, 90% of Aether World has been destroyed] [Please reach the ‘True Ending’] “Why did I possess this character?”

[You can use the skill ‘Blink’] Blink was the only magic skill I was given.

Surviving in Stella Academy where many genius wizards run rampant, I became the Flash Wizard.

It’s an interesting story, but one that is hindered by a lazy translator who doesn’t bother to check his work. From constant switches between first and third person to grammatical errors, there’s even an entire chapter full of korean puns that the tl just translates literally and writes it off as “local korean wordplay that’s too hard to translate”, like come on, show some love and respect for the work. It’s not that hard to google some english puns that you could interchange with the korean ones.

Personally really enjoying this. I am looking forward to what sort of skill he'll bring out and I think the relationship between each characters is nice.

The pacing has been good so far, although, there's some part where I'm not sure which character is talking during a conversation.

started yesterday and binged 60 chaps instantly even though I had to read through MTLs.

A well developed story, the author has really planned everything.

The MC is a fun character, who loves having fun.

The main girls are also good, properly developed and so far there's no romance which is a good thing as author is taking his time to develop everything

The world building and lore seems really deep.

binged all 5 chapters in an instant and suddenly I am craving for more.

This story really pulls you in with the premise. The quality of translation is good for a mtl and you can easily understand what's going on.

The main character seems to be fleshed out and well written. It feels more like a free flowing story now and I am excited to see where it goes.

This novel is how should I describe. Its author wants the novel to be "average good". I have read it past chp 200. Its not bad but its not masterpiece either. The author always stops shortly before an arc becomes epic or great. Ending to every arc is just "average good" never progressing arcs to full satisfaction. Plus the fillers are brutal, straight up boring cause main heroines get average arcs so filler heroines could get forced for just increasing harem numbers. Yknow whats ironic ? This novel desperately tries... more>> to be not harem while writing a obvious harem story. If I reach the end then prob I will give 3* in honor of author who desperately makes his stories average.

Alright have you read Mobsekai or Little tyrant ?
Do you wanted both games good things like the main blonde heroine Nora/angelica being called evil/villain, the game setting but with a new plot twist ? Here we have it then.

Divided old review and new edit using spoiler. Read it if you want character review.

[[EDIT: (Alright I read starting chp again since I said I will change rating in future to understand more. The Reincarnated FMC, & the FMC (not "reincarnated" like above fmc) as their name says they were originally MC of this fantasy world. Now both of these above guys are in game our MC plays, they cant reach real ending enter our MC !

We got two new Protagonists one is our MC and the another is villainess Biyeon Adolveit. It took long time to figure out like our MC has exclusive chapter where no one appears, same way still less chp amount Biyeon Adolveit has her own solo chapters (I.e. Our MC not present). As for why Biyeon is one of protagonist prob cause she is written villain to die in game like alot diff ways as told in 3rd chp and in game pretty much everyone fights with her like all even mother (legit commits warcrimes to Biyeon since born). Another thing is Biyeons enemies/battles arent part of Main story which is the only thing MC wants to do so shes handling them alone. But shes learning to think like MC too idk if MC gonna help I didnt read far. Shes like Darth Vader I mean literally, just there was healing in this world.

In big events both appear but most MCs arcs focus on other heroines than Biyeon since like she gets her own solo chp right? But she does interact with MC dw. I am guessing Biyeons time is after 50% of story. Whatever author dumped 7 new girls in 10 chp so I gave it 1* in anger but maybe I shouldnt think all are heroines.) ]] EDIT END


The world has progressed and the knights/heroes taking up a sword to fight the evil are things of fairy tales and chivalry is no more but just thing of past as flying wizards with godly powers look down on the world. All MC wants to do is complete the game defeat the final boss and as a modern person he is like nice, kind, saviour. Basically ppl laugh at MC for being kid who likes impersonating fairytale fighting the evil with sword following chivalry (modern values like above). Well they are in to left speechless

Only issue is too many heroines hinted in future. Like another heroine thats just copy of Main villainess Biyeon is added for future. If author tries to divide focus between 7-10 heroines leading to main heroines not getting focus at all. Even the early 3 cant get enough focus. But I see hope. <<less

I am the translator for this and I must say it is a very good novel. It is a beautiful mix of good worldbuilding, magic, well thought out characters, a decent plot and gives you a wonderful novel worthy of binge-reading.

I am also quite happy with the response it has got and plan on contunuing it.

This novel will definitely succeed you expectations, that I am sure of.

No the MC is not "flashing" his underwear. Story is quite interesting. It is about a gamer who entered a world where the game MC is someone from the modern world who entered a novel world. Pretty neat. I wonder if I am also part of a story and someone is reading it lol

One of the best isekai story I like. MC is likeable. Not OP, and compared to other characters' skills are relatively weak. But with his creativity and execution, it can be classified as an OP MC. But that's the thing that I love the most.

All heroine likeable and The author prepares a plot that focuses on each heroine, so readers can gradually like the heroine. And this is an important element for the harem genre.


Hong Biyeon is the best girl

It's good the MC is op (for where he is at) but I do believe that's because it's at the beginning of the story considering his ability.

The plot is nice. The author is really adding in those world building details deliberately so that he can use them later ... more>>

example is in the elfs domain or whatever where he got a key and entered a very old elf persons chambers where that elf is asleep or something and he just does some body training like pushups, pullups and plenty of juice, and he talks with the spirit of the elf and leaves. Just that, no waking the elf up.


The character interactions are also really well done with none of the characters being 1 note in my opinion. My favorite character aside from the MC is probably Eisel or Azel I'm reading the mtl not too sure.

Even though I am 63 chapters in it definatly feels like this is one of those 800 to 1000 chapter kinda novels depending on how it is handled as it doesn't feel like much is happening and the characters are still in the beginning phases.

I will change my rating and comments as I read more but currently it's a 10/10

Chapter 63 and before spoiler.

since full frame thinks the MC is a regressor I wanna see the story end with everyone thinking that the MC will disappear and start crying about how they'll never forget him and he's just super confused and it ends with him saying that he's not a regressor


Chapter 200 above something spoiler


even after 200 chapters im still hooked. Its really good. The main character is op because of his knowlegde and I love that it completely disregards the story going onto a slugfest of fists without any strategy in the future with the MC also be suprised a lot of times. My current favorite chapter is when Eiselm full frame, and hong bi yeon go to this celestial library and look at the MCs past and everywhere surrounding them theres just baek yu seoul getting mureder and them thing that he went through all of that. This suprised me as I though this story would be where they find out the the MC isn't a part of the world but they find out the MCs past is the game characters past. Im at a part where the 12 moons are being met like every arc or 2 and its very interesting like in a part of the story the 11th month says that what would happen in 10 years from the beginning of the story is completely set and it wouldnt change. The arc where baek yu seoul goes 10 years into the past is also really interesting and is a testament to the author thinking of the story before actually publishing it as Eisels dads soul is still free se he's still alive and also not to mention baek yu seoul is getting every girl

This is just the type of novel that everybody is dreading for, it's concept and creativity flamboyantly succeed my expectation, and I hope yours aswell, and has brought me bundles of satisfaction throughout the whole novel.I just started to read more consistently so I don't know if my review is acknowledged in the novelupdate community but I hope it helps some people who are in the state of debate in which they want to or not read this novel. Thanks.

The novel is currently too short to give an accurate review.

Despite the generic concept, this novel is actually pretty good. The characters aren't annoying, the powers are cool, and the fights aren't bad.

The story isn't rushed, and the female characters didn't suddenly go "omg I love him!" the moment the MC appears. Since the novel is still currently short, we have not yet seen much of the side character's story yet.

The MC isn't dumb, he's a bit of a troll. When he's summoned to another world, he didn't suddenly got... more>> used to using his powers with sh*tty excuses like "I'm a try hard key board pvp master who's been playing this game for 1000 years blah blah bs". He actually needs to learn to get used to his powers.

Tbh, that's all I can write in here currently, I might add more in the future. Recommended to read. <<less

The writing style of the author is like "My Death Flags Show No Sign of Ending" with the POV narration, which I like.

The MC's supposedly "tr*sh" power seems OP to me, even though the author seems to say otherwise.

The translator's cliff notes at the end is pretty endearing.

The plot has been done a thousand times, but pretty entertaining nonetheless.

I have no idea where to look for the MTL so I guess I'll just wait for the TL of it, help plz.

Now then, onto a review on this, I like it, I'm actually hooked on this, if this were 40 chapters, it would've just ended in a day, none of the chapters are short either (less then 200 words... I think).

Now then, if you've read the synopsis, you'll see that he played a tr*sh character for 10 years, he mained said character for the entirety of those 10 years... more>> and with that alone, it's pretty obvious the dude ain't normal.

The prologue starts off with him slightly prior to transmigration and I'd say the prologue is chapter 1 so don't skip it.

Let's see, anything else I can say? Uh, the kuudere is the best girl. <<less
