I Was Reincarnated

Description

“It’s my principle to never let go of the people I once reached out my hand to.”

Reincarnated again and again for failing to reach his life span, the protagonist’s soul finally lost its ability to become human in his next life. Finding it amusing, God decided to send him instead to a world where magic and demi-humans exist, and turns him into a Demon God — a legendary, fearful existence among the residents of that world.

The protagonist is your typical lazy MC who was quite popular in his school despite his delinquent status. He once threw a student off the second floor for bullying his best friend (who also happened to be his f**k buddy).
The mystery behind MC's death

Spoiler

stabbed to death by his bff/f**kbuddy-turned-yandere, which MC accepted because "to be killed by him (bff) means he's so crazy in-love with MC that he'd prefer MC died instead of others snatching him away"

[collapse]

was sufficiently explained, which is surprising, because I thought the author will write it off as a fateful coincidence.

Now in a different world, MC reincarnates as a Demon God. Some circumstances lead him into taking two beastmen and some slaves to his castle. Thus, their fluffy daily life begins~

This story has a nice set up and a good plot however further into the story, the uke becomes one of those damsels-in-distress which I hated. He's a beastman with strong combat abilities but he just cry and hide behind the seme. I stopped at the point where the main plot is starting, I admit. Maybe I'll read this again someday. It's actually a good story, all things considered. <<less

It starts out okay, but along the way all I read was about how cute the ML's Uke is. How he likes to spoil him (and the kid too) and I see no other story development... or it's there but too slow for my liking.

As far as I read almost 70% of the story is about the ML thinking how cute and how he spoils his Uke and kid.... Ugh...

Whether he acts cute, whiny, crying, jealous and so on... No story or character development at all...

Makes me bored out of... more>> my mind. Too lazy to read the rest, so Imma dropping it. -sigh-

I'm amazed the translator can hold on this long to translate this story....-claps and bows-

Thank you for your translations though, sorry that this can't hold my interest for long. <<less

Okay, so it starts out good and it stays steady till around ch 15-20. Then it becomes a story not worth much.

The demon god is actually a pretty interesting character. He explains his emotions and I think he gives a pretty good reasoning of why he is so uncaring of himself and the world around him.

Unfortunately, those two adorable characters you met in the first few chapters turn out to become spoiled and worthless. They just laze and want more. Especially the main love interest. His thought process is truthfully... more>> hard to stomach after the many pity-filled thoughts.

I don't think the author knew where they wanted to go with the story. And that harem tag is a lie so far as the demon god sticks to the one interest in every instance but one.

If you want filler, it's fine. But if you want a plausible story, it's lacking. <<less

I should have listened to the other negative reviews. I'd meant to hit three stars, because I find the other aspects of the story interesting, but my finger hit the two star instead. Oh, well. It's true that the so-called "romance" is, in fact, an increasingly toxic relationship.

Although the MC never rapes the uke, he does emotionally manipulate him and physically threaten him, first, if the uke runs away or falls in love, then, after he's been sleeping with the uke for a year and finally falls in love and marries him, for doing anything independently. The MC starts as being morally ambiguous, but quickly becomes an abusive person. Although it is always emphasized how "gentle" he is toward the uke, it's only because the uke is his "thing." Not because he loves him. And everyone is aware of this. At one point the MC threatens the uke for even speaking another man's name, but the MC has 0 qualms with sleeping with others. Even after getting married and being "in love, " he still sleeps with other people in order to make the uke jealous. (Later, the MC still isn't sure that he actually loves "his wife" who is still "his thing.") This behavior transforms the cowardly uke from a barely competent guy, but at least he tries, to a supposedly OP fighter who is clingy, whiny, wracked by negative thoughts, and unable to do anything, much less use the skills he's been training. Although this sort of character is annoying, I 100% blame the MC's manipulations for him becoming that way. The MC even knows that he's done this, and likes it. He threatens "his wife" with cutting off his legs if the uke does anything independently. Although the audience "knows" he wouldn't actually go through with it (because the MC thinks it), the uke, quite understandably, believes it. And I wouldn't put it past him to actually do it. After all, the MC loathes mature people. He himself said so.

A lazy human who keep dying without being able to live his age quota lol. The God made him reincarnated into a demon king instead so he can't die anymore but our demon king just want to have an easy life. He wants a castle? Done. A castle appeared and he got his beautiful sleep. Someone banged his door and shouted "wth why this castle suddenly appeared out of nowhere" and questioned the demon king only to be commanded to strip by the said demon king??!

It's a knight with animal... more>> ears and tail wohoo o/

Found this today and honest I am itching to read more! Too bad it's on hiatus ;__; oh well, here's one soul hoping it will be updated someday~ <<less

The beginning wasn't bad, the idea of completely OP and somewhat emotionally detached MC was quite interesting and fun to read. However, the further I got, the more frustrating the novel became, time after time I got really iritated with characters' attitude.

It's not for me, but if you don't mind whiney love interest, self-absorbed and overwhelming MC, maybe you'll be able to somehow enjoy it a bit more. Overall would not recommend.

I liked the beginning but later on it became 'too much'. I like the ML but the uke is too whiny, cries at nothing and behaves like a child afraid of everything even though he's an adult (even better - a warrior, though inexperienced one) and survived for 22 years alone. It feels like his character devolves as the novel goes further. Don't want to slurr japanese novels but as expected of one - even yaoi is same as the typical harem novel. Rated as 3 because beginning wasn't bad... more>> and I haven't read till the end so leaving space for character evolution eventuality. <<less

Hmmm this can be summed up as being simply average. It’s not heartwarming enough to be enjoyed as a simple slice of life novel and not climatic enough to be enjoyed as an adventure novel. Very little emotional investment and yet not fun enough to make up for that.

So far, there isn't any plot to the story, and all of the characters are coming across as pretty shallow. The writing isn't good enough to keep my attention or pull me in, and I'm too bored with it to keep reading.

The idea is interesting, but the writing could really use an upgrade. There isn't any drama or plot, and the action is mostly completely skipped over. I haven't seen any strengths in the story up to this point.

Since I can't change the star rating I'll just say it here. 1 and a half stars out of 5, would not recommend.

I really don't like the love interest. He is becoming whiny, annoying, spoilt and a cry baby, it makes me dislike each chapter.

[collapse]

I prefer him with Dea or Sei to be honest. At least the both of them have strong personalities and are useful.

So far my favorite characters are, Shin, Dea and Sei, Rona and The freed villagers. Rua to I guess. In chapter 38 he (Shin) noticed his (Sei) smile. I SHIP THEM SO MUCH!!!!

I can't read this anymore, I'm stopping at chapter 45. My final verdict is, I really don't want to read this anymore. It's making me angry and I just want to hit someone reading this. The MC is okay, the love interest can go jump in a boiling lake of lava for all I care and the only one I can honestly say I can tolerate is the Knight Sei. Everyone else may as well be cardboard cutouts that occasionally have lines. <<less

The MC was a lazy type of guy, but the flow of the story makes him practically invincible in a unbelievable but funny way. The translation was great too. I literally jump when I saw this being picked up! Hope it'll turn as good as it is~ looking forward to Shins Love blossoming _~ Five stars!

I won't go into the character stuff, other people have already done that. I'll give my major complaint that hasn't been touched on by any other reviewers:

About 50% of this story just does not need to exist.

It's not uncommon for Japanese stories to switch POV between characters, at the very least, this POV switch offers something and still moves the plot along. Every second chapter of this story switches to another character's POV but just rehashes things that have already happened, to no real purpose. Many of these characters are... more>> minor enough that their viewpoints do not matter. It's just an artificial inflation of chapters and pointless filler. While a switch in POV providing an outsider perspective on the MC in a first person narrative can be interesting, if done in moderation, when literally every second chapter, sometimes three chapters in a row, is just the same event being covered and whole dialogue texts being copy pasted and repeated, it becomes tiresome and pointless and just stalls the story.

If you can skip entire chapters of a story and not lose anything, it's a poorly written story. <<less

It was interesting at first, but then it just got boring. The ML (uke) wasn't at all compelling as a lover (as the MC, the reader is put into the seme's role and there is nothing about this ML that makes him more worthy than other characters to be held). The main thing that described the ML was "cute" and "jealous". That's pretty much it. Both the romance and the story wasn't engaging enough to keep me reading. I tried to give a chance but after 23 chapters, I'm just... more>> so bored. <<less

Overall I like the story, it has promising future. Until chapter 30 though, they still revolve around one country, or one region of the country perhaps (?) but anyway there's still room for world building.

The reason why I can't give this novel a full mark is because like one of the reviewer said, the uke is too clingy and meek. I know world is a scary place but, ffs, he was a scout/milita from the village and he became meek like a 5 YO kid? This is quite disappointing for... more>> me <<less

This is of course my thoughts but the protagonist is... how do I say this... kind of f***ed up. His thought process is just hard for me to want to relate to him in the beginning of the story.

I would recommend this novel if you are okay with the male lead (uke) being a seriously VERY clingy and spoiled child (but the MC likes him like that) and the protagonist is a person that gives no f***s about anyone else until later on in the series where he starts to... more>> pity the ML and starts to develop more than just liking a pet for the ml.

Spoiler

i just feel sorry for the ML because the MC just hops and tastes other people as much as he wants. He is the type where he will have s*x with someone else to get his lover to spit out their true thoughts or else he won't stop hurting the person. He does admit that he has twisted and sadistic thoughts. [ /spoiler]

But excluding the characters, the story is well translated and the scenes are detailed and juicy.

Later in the story, it does explain the character's thoughts, which in some cases "some" of their thoughts are understandable, and he does treat the ML better later in the story. But I just personally don't really like the MC all that much, hence my 3 star rating.
