I know there isn't much to rate really, but the premise seems unique and interesting. We don't know much about anything, but...

... it begins with a reincarnated guy (presumably MC) getting kicked out of the Academy. He sees ghosts and can somehow appease them (purify them maybe) by talking to them. He seems to have gathered a few ghost yanderes (not literally) who freaked out after he left.

In short quite a good beginning.

[collapse]

Edit: Unfortunately, the translation is kinda iffy at times. An example of that:

Spoiler

For example, when it comes to simple magic, I am not even comparable to my fiancée, Erica Bright. Because she is a lumber that can reach the realm of being an Archmage.

Maybe this is just me not getting something, but this kinda breaks the immersion unfortunately.

[collapse]

Even then, the story is good. <<less

The title and the generic blonde girl in the image are really miss leading for this novel.

You would think this is another generic academy novel with a protagonist that has necromancer abilities. Not even close. This is more of a cerebral horror story about exorcism and relieving the dead of their regrets. Honestly I don't even really understand why the ability is called necromancy because everything he does is closer to exorcism.

The quality of the writing is very high and can get quite dark with some of the ghosts back... more>> stories.

MC is cold and indifferent because of the torture he's had from ghosts his entire life and people viewing him as a crazy person. Some of the examples he gives about his experiences as a child are genuinely guthrenching.

So far the harem seems like it's gonna be the most annoying part. Considering MC personality this doesn't seem like he will ever develop feelings for anyone so the whole thing feels needless.

*I'm not a hater of harem (actually like it) but in something like this it feels unnecessary.

So if you want something a bit more cerebral that feels like a 'Haunting of Hill House' this is pretty solid. <<less

Our MC transmigrates into a game, is a professor, can see ghosts. That's the main summary in a gist.

Spoiler

Our MC in the past life suffered a lot coz he could see ghosts and his maternal grandmother was a shaman which played a big part in it.

Now, our MC transmigrates and becomes Deus Vardi. Even here, he can see ghosts and try to hear their grudges so they can attain salvation but the academy fires him for it, calling a Heretic and what not.

"Scream."
Over a hundred years, the tongue, which had not reached a drop of water, must have already hardened and dried up.
The dust was so thick it clogged her throat. The bugs ate the flesh, and the spiders would have built a house on you as bait to catch those bugs.
"Beg, shed tears, howl at your miserable life."
The girl's soul was already ruined, and she couldn't rest even after death.
"Awake, and pour out your grudge upon me."
I felt that the girl's eyes were on me. It's as if I've been asked what would be different if I told you.
I answer her
"Then I will save you."

The above lines are part of a chapter when our MC encounters a paranormal entity he wishes to liberate... more>> from its suffering over endless years. Now imagine a whole novel full of such top tier literature whose quality does not diminish even in machine translation.

This novel is a fantasy one where the MC transmigrates into a game world. The world is a middle age aristocratic type with magic and what not. Here the MC transmigrates into an as*hole of a character who is beyond messed up. He is a necromancer but since the MC could originally see ghosts, his necromancer abilities are enhanced with him being able to communicate with ghosts.

The mood is kind of mysterious with a paranormal investigation+fantasy vibe. The necromancer thing is done well and is unlike those modern Korean necromancer novels where the necromancer part seems abit casual. The MC is obviously treated like a heretic since the religious environment is like middle age Europe with the church burning down anyone who would refute them and bring about a loss in their control over the masses.

The romance here is kind of nonexistent with the MC not being interested in it. However the FLs do like him. Obviously the best character in the book is Fiden Ai (the silver haired maid) who isn't a romantic interest but is comedic af.

Spoiler

The main FL, Erica Bright, but MC clearly told her he doesn't like her once the chaos in the academy resided. There is also the regressor, who is the main character of the game, who turns out yandere and possessive after the failure of the first round where the MC failed to save the world. Here the MC has her on some kind of a leash so that she doesn't f*ck things up again (she was the main culprit behind the chaos at the academy and she did that to enhance the MC's capabilites)

[collapse]

Overall it seems like a top tier novel with writing on the level of SSS Class su*cide Hunter. 5/5 would recommend. <<less

I think this is a great novel. Having read the mtl, my opinion may be a little spotty because the translation and actual text could’ve differed significantly, but the author does a great job at making you feel relieved and that moving on feeling.

... more>>
Spoiler

it’s like: “what’s this? ‘Evil’ entity that is causing havoc? My my, how pitiful. Indeed I shall listen to your last songs before you perish as, perhaps, that is greatest I could do for you. Cry, cry all you want. I will listen to your wails, I will promise you that you will not leave alone. I guarantee that.” Or the MC be like: “indeed, perhaps I was not for you. You are beautiful, you deserve love. I have realized that after spending time with you, you deserve happiness. Grow, love, make friends and play. Thank you.”
Imagine that but with better writing for like every single main entity that appears. It’s like wow it doesn’t even get repetitive cause the author intertwines it so well given the context of the situation. And then the MC be dropping gems like “cry for the living for I will cry for the dead” it’s just so f*cking magnificent.

[collapse]

the author does a good job at making the characters. I want to see them be happy and be successful, and when that happens, I am happy. It’s like wow, who knew seeing a fictional character move on from their guilt and trauma could be so heartwarming and satisfying. <<less

OKAY, I AM NOT KIDDING, THIS ONE WAS GOOD, I am a bit relieved the MC isn't exactly a beta male but he isn't a "chad" is what you call it, It's good, I enjoyed it, it's not a story that could outmatch my otber top 5's, but considering it's low content/chapter count, it could potentially beat my other top 10 novels, honestly, I thought this would be a cliche KR/JP like story where the MC just uses skeleton and revives dead people, but unexpectedly it was different, it's good

It's a bit cliche of a ghost story but you have MC dealing with spirits and ghosts as a professor of a school. The drama comes from him taking over the body of your typical hedonistic noble- and dealing with that nobleman's past, including family, lovers, reputation, the whole 9 yards.

The problem comes from the fact that the Author makes the MC pointlessly cryptic and reluctant to speak, making things difficult until the MC shows up with all the answers and saving the day. To add on to the bloat,... more>> you have to get through chapters of ghosts backstories, which isn't really relevant because only the MC can hear them and communicate to them- but then they leave the story.

I do like the characters, but the game plot feels unnecessary- even if it explains the main protagonist of the game is a reincarnator- and it's hinted she and the MC have already lived one cycle. How many cycles in total is vague at this point.

Dont get me wrong, these are cool and interesting ideas, but the MC is a dull rock w/o emotions, justifiable or not and it's hard to get excited about anything other than the events. Think generic xianxia protag that's logical all the time.

3/5 with chance to hit 5/5. Could be a classic but, I doubt it's going to end satisfactory. Already looks like harem with somehow no romance so... <<less

This story is amazing. This is my free flow thoughts on it...

The MC isn't really powerful directly, more clever and knowledgeable. The physical aspects of fighting are left to others and this fits the protagonist well. I find this to be novel when it comes to a Korean light/web novel MC.

The MC is reborn as someone who has a scum reputation, yet there is a clear mix of people who know him pre-rebirth and post. The relationship between himself and his fiancee is very unique. I don't want to say... more>> more for spoilers reasons.

The MC lacks feelings towards others in a believable way, but is also not a dense MC.

A certain character was just revealed to have been the driving factor behind all the events thus far (well except for the always questioned why was X person reincarnated/isekai'd/whatever reason you want to call it). I would kinda consider c43 the true end of the first full arc. I am excitedly looking forward to more eventually, but it also is a satisfying stop to the story. <<less

Having to give this novel a 4 pains me considering how good it is but it had to be done.

The protagonist is in that sweet spot while he's not a weak pushover but he can't steamroll everything by himself either. The way they write the ghosts are also pretty cool. I'd like to see it adapted into a manhwa.

There's a twist near the recently released (at the time of writing) chapters and while it was pretty predictable. I appreciate how they try to make us conflicted and doubtful before revealing... more>> the twist instead of just blowing their load prematurely like most other Academy Transmigration novels.

We also aren't hurled headfirst into the academy and I appreciate that for a change.

Unfortunately the misunderstandings, especially the one revolving around why the MC had to leave the academy the 1st time, are a bit too dumb so it barely failed to reach 5 stars. <<less

It's good for the time being. Not actually a generic boring academy novel. But dives into the regrets of each deceased person, using wit and strength rather than screaming loudly and destroying everyone.

However, this interest will most likely die before chapter 100. The Harlem element and how its being setup will result in many many chapters being about Harlem drama. You classic harem girl a b and c arguing about their love of the protag. Gets extremely tiresome fast. Tragic really, it was a good story and setup thus far.
