Right now I'm far ahead in the mtl all I can say it is a total brilliant work among regression novels. Why? Because unlike most regression novels where the MC stops some tragedy in the original timeline, the reason why it just gets harder is some butterfly effect by the regressor's actions but on this novel it literally has a plot twist of its own. It shows how tr*shy many regression novel gets where many MC just struggles due to the antagonist sending someone stronger than what some regression main... more>> characters expect but on this one the MC uses the memory of the regressor only for it to be half assed that it isn't the entire story and the MC gradually realizing how much in the dark was the regressor really was despite him defeating the black heaven or all in all if Gwon Ohjin's personality and black heaven abilities, the 2nd round would all have just been a waste <<less

Here's the gist. A character defeated the final boss and saved the world. As a reward, he was granted a wish, he used it to recieve an OP skill (?) and return to the past. So that he could kill the enemy while still weak.

This is from 1st chap, not major spoiler but there's a twist:

Spoiler

He died the moment he regressed because the skill was too OP for him. As a result, the actual MC inherited it

There are a lot of stories out there with overpowered protagonists. Heroes who travel back in time to avert the apocalypse, who face the future armed not only with foreknowledge but with massively overpowered skills and abilities that only they can control. And, 99% of the time, those overpowered protagonists are as bland as plain white toast.

"I'm determined and driven to change the future and avert the apocalypse, and that's my defining character trait!" - You and a hundred other unimaginative light novel heroes.

"I have [insert overpowered ability here] and... more>> succeed at challenges due to my overwhelming strength!" - Same as above. Also, superpowers are no excuse for a lack of personality.

"I use my future knowledge to change the past!" - So, you're saying you always have a plan to succeed at everything, leaving no chance of dramatic tension? That sounds so exciting. /S

Anyway, I'm Not a Regressor proceeds to take all of the mediocre "regression" stories you've read in the past, beats them up, and steals their lunch money. Despite using the themes and tropes of the regression genre, this story:

  • Has a character whose attitude and antics are a delight to read
  • Frequently throws problems at its protagonist that can't just be punched, so he actually has to think, scheme, and scam his way out of trouble
  • Manages to repeatedly hit the protagonist with curveballs, even in a situation where he knows pieces of the future, so the plot beats are unpredictable and exciting.
A breath of fresh air amidst the endless sea of genre clones. <<less

This is a quite cliche KR novel. With the MC getting stronger at a very past pace, eating everything along the way and getting OPer by the minute. Skills goes up like crazy and all.

But like fast food its quite satisfying in a rather tr*shy way.

The con man act of the MC can be seen as a comedy. Theres a face slapping scene after he beats a boss enemy. He gains something every time he beats someone as a dopamine reward kind of feel.

The part where he flirts with his... more>> not related sister and goes lovey dovey is also quite cute.

And ofcourse, it cant be completed without that against all odds save the beuty in distress moments to boost your ego.

All in all, its not something new nor was it something intricate and amazing. But its enjoyable enough with all its cliche moments. <<less

Starts out great, with a completely fresh take on the usual regressor trope. But later devolves into the usual clichés like where MC loses control of emotions and recklessly jumps into easily avoidable fights against opponents he knows he has no chance of beating, but still wins / gets saved due to plot armor, learns nothing and does the same thing again.

Power levels don't mean a thing. They aren't described properly, we just know higher power levels are stronger but don't know by how much. Either way, MC can defeat... more>> any enemy using his cheat skills and plot armor irrespective of the level gap.

Initially MC was portrayed as an underdog who has to rely on his wits to overcome dangerous situations. But later, it turns out MC is a perfect genius who can learn anything much faster than other geniuses, and is able to bear any amounts of pain without flinching, and can invent new broken abilities as easily as breathing. He is also the master of all abilities to deal with any type of situation and has no shortcomings. He no longer requires wit (instead, actively chooses the s*upid path) to solve any problem, and becomes the most admired young hero in the world. <<less

The MC even scared of her so he had to scam her to make her think they had a thing in their “past lives” but believe me you are the only one in his heart!!!

I got the same feeling as Second Coming of Gluttony from this, though with the MC being much more of a scammer. It's been great as far as I read.

Spoilery Description (Spoiler from first couple chapter) :

... more>>
Spoiler

So the MC is not regressor, but due to his innate ability he inherited the power of the regressor. MC was actually a villain (the final boss type) in the regressor's original timeline. So the regressor decided to go back in time to redo it as every of Earth has been destroyed. In process he request a blessing from the top god, he took it knowing that no one has been able to handle it so far due to it being very powerful. Thus resulting to them dying, which what happened to the regressor the moment he traveled through time.

MC and the Regressor was actually try to clear a dungeon, then a monster overflow happened. Though the regressor suddenly dropped dead due to him not being able to handle the blessing of the top god. Which resulted in the MC's innate ability awakening and took the blessing for himself, thus he awakened as a hunter. Then the top god showed up, as she sense her blessing on him and though that he was the regressor.

The hilarious part is the MC scared of thinking that she might killed him if he said otherwise, ended up lying to her. Thankfully the MC inherited some of the regressor's memories and would continues to gain more as his innate ability grow stronger. Thus throughout the novel we will see that the MC tried to fool this god into thinking he is a regressor using the memory he inherited. Funnily enough is that because the regressor was trying to stop the MC, he had to come up with all sort of excuses and even shift the blame to some other group. Which funnily enough might ended up being the true enemy which even the regressor didn't know about.

Reason MC destroyed the world in regressor's timeline:

Spoiler

Basically the regressor in the past, abandoned the MC in the dungeon. The MC managed to survive and escaped the dungeon, but possibly only after a long time. The MC have a sister from the same orphanage as him and something might have happened to her which pushed the MC to become evil. She was a former hunter but was injured greatly, she lost her eyesight and some of her limbs.

So the regressor coming back to the past and dying might have changed the future for the better, LOL. As he was the cause for everything.

edit: for anyone beginning this series now, don't. The Translation has slowed down to a crawl. 1 chapter per week nearly. It's impossible to read with how sh*t the Translation speed has become.

... more>> It is average. As general fiction, I'd rate it pretty bad. But compared to others of its ilk, as in Korean regression stories? It's pretty good.

The main issue stems from the fact that the story's very interesting beginning twist cannot carry it all the way through. Immediately after the twist, it turns into a rather boring generic regression drivel. The massive momentum of the first few chapters is very evanescent. By chapter 20 you might as well have been reading any other story.

Perhaps it could have been interesting if we could just see more into what made the original him so evil in the first place, but we're not seeing any of it, perhaps the author himself hasn't even thought of it yet, so it's quite boring as is. <<less

I would give this 5 star just from the chapter 1. It is so cliche in the 90% of the 1st chapter and it turn 360 degree right after that.

I was feeling reading MEMORIZE type of novel. You know OP MC with regret after clear the game want to come back to the start of the game. But nope

Up till now its quite good, sometimes I think the world building or better sayed the personality of the MC is quite weird.
Spoiler

: He lives in shabby lil house or apartment while he earns everyday between 200-300 dollar.

[collapse]
Sadly the story got the Harem-tag. I am praying to Vega, that the story doesnt contains, poor written hollow female charcters.

Overall till now its a pretty good start and I hope that the novel will continue into a good direction cuz the personality of the MC is pretty well written.

So far, it doesn't seem like a harem and more like a love triangle, but with there being one very clear victor. It has well-built characters and mixes the action with wholesome moments making it an enjoyable read. The translation is very good, they have special formats for system messages and illustrations on the transalators site so I highly recommend you read from there. The illustrations in special moments really give a huge impact in certain scenes.

The novel is well translated and written regressor LN. The MC has a unique character unlike most protagonists with his witting/cunning and almost sinister and cynical character, which I personally enjoy. Although still in it earlier phases of translation, it is worth the read and I am looking forward to future chapters. One side note/ tangent/ interpretation of the author, I would like to point out, is I can't help but think this is a satire of Second Coming of Gluttony. As someone who personally thinks SCOG is one of the best LN's to date, I am not offended and find it quite funny but you just can't help but think the author is taking the mickey of SCOG sometimes.
Spoiler

The novel first starts off with a similar setting, after finishing a devastating war at the cost of most of humanity, the MC (in this case not MC) asks to 'regress' and returns to the past. Yes, this author adds a funny and uncanny twist to it which I like.


Very similar skill system with Gods giving their abilities to people and these awakened have similar 'apostle/disciple/executor' hierarchies.
AND lastly but the most important and obvious one:

Valhalla? Small group of elites? The leader being one of the top 7 'stars'? And to top it off the MC is using them as his personal 'hound'. Come onnnnnn, this was almost a declaration of war to SCOG hahaha, I can't help but laugh.

[collapse]

Anyway, I'm not trying to call out the author for plagiarism or even intentionally trying to mock SCOG. As I said SCOG is probably my favourite LN of all time. I'm not offended and actually enjoy reading I'm not a regressor.

Give it a read it's pretty good so far, good action and comedy regressor LN.

This is a very good novel with a fresh idea. Immediately after reading the first chapter, you will get hook with the wacky story about a scamer who pretend to be a regressor and try to change the fate of himself and the world.
Many people said that the combat/action of this novel is lacking. It is true but you dont come to this novel for that, the strong side of this is the story, comedy and romance (?). And about the plot armor ... more>>
Spoiler

So what wrong with plot armor, rememer that the original MC supposed to destroy the world anyway even without the strength of Lybra

[collapse]
it just a trivial thing when in every fight, you see that how desperate he fought, not some OP buff shit.
I have been reading the MTL and the quality doesnt drop so expecting the good stuff coming soon. <<less

i think i’m just a who*e for villainous & OP protagonists. It’s not the best novel, but it certainly is entertaining and can be quite funny at times. The MC’s relationship with the FL is soooo cute and I think that overall if u like novels with MCs that aren’t goody two-shoes and also want to read something that is lighthearted and doesn’t take itself too seriously I would totally recommend ^_^ I have a lot of hope for this novel I feel as though as time goes by it’ll... more>> only get better and better !! <<less

don't worry y'all, this story's protag starts off seemingly unredeemable scammy, but follows the standard Korean trope of becoming bearable and a very good character overall as the story goes on. I also like the plot twists that the author throws in, this is a very good and fun novel to read, and the premise of the story is also important to the plot.

What a great start! This novel has such and interesting twist to the normal regression novel starting plots. It totally took me by surprise and gave me a whole new perspective to that genre. I also really like the misunderstandings in this story. They are hilarious and drive the story well. But most of all, I absolutely love this story MC. He reminded me of some other MCs from my fav novels.
... more>>
Spoiler

He started out looking like a tr*shy yet clever scammer who would do anything for money to survive in a ruin world (of course his ‘cleverness’ is a double-edge knife causing him to lift a stone and hit his own foot multiple times). But then step-by-step, his actions prove otherwise. He’s clever and a scammer, but he is definitely not tr*shy. He works hard day-by-day for years before the story started to support a non-biological sister that used to take care of him and other kids at orphanage. And after awakening, he was constantly putting his life at risk fighting difficult opponents while putting his life on the line strategically to quickly improve and earn lots of money. He also consistently trained from sun rise to sun set days in and out. And while he always has excuses for acting like a hero and saving others, he always takes care of his loved ones and never harm anyone that didn’t show malice towards him or his important people.
The tipping point is when the reason for his obsession with money was revealed. It was quite obvious but still hit like a truck. The story got me hooked by the first few chapters. However, little by little, I fell for this kind of MC and by c40, I was sold. It’s honestly cute to me that throughout the early part of the story, MC kept mentioning how he want a simple relaxing life that he wouldn’t have to worry and just enjoying life, but he put himself through a life of hardship toiling away scamming people much stronger than him in dungeons dangerous to even awakeners as a normal human while taking care of a disabled person. And once the most urgent need is covered, he still continue to work hard (to the point of madness tbh) by ‘sparring’ to death continuously to push his growth.

[collapse]
He’s the type of MC that seems to not only will turn out to be extremely OP but also will definitely develop more depth as the story progress.
Spoiler

No doubt he not only excelled in the previous timeline but will also be celebrated as the hero in this timeline

[collapse]

I have great expectations for this and definitely recommend people reading this gem. <<less
