Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Insane. Traitor. Terrorist. The title given to Joon-young, a soldier who fought a lost war. Performing the most devious last stand befitting his titles, his memories were sent to another world. Now named Isaac, he seeks to live out his days in relative peace. But with his family wanting him dead he is sent to the Campus, the Empire’s greatest centre of Education, in hopes that he would be expelled and tarnish his position as the heir of his family. He is told that the school will treat him as if he doesn’t exist, that he isn’t protected by its rules. But Isaac, or Joon-young, sees it differently. There are no rules to hold him back from getting what he wants.

"perfect", "modern", and "meritocracy" are not words that describe the society Isaac is transported to, yet it is repeatedly narrated as such. It's literally a monarchy. MC's father can't marry his mother 'cause she's a commoner. A typical 'the entire world is against me' isekai. It's perfectly justified that they can hit the MC because he's only on campus and not an actual student but if he tries anything he'd be arrested. Don't bother

Too many has given low star when they only read few chapters so I given this perfect 5 star to balance it. Still this ones do deserved 4 star. This is kind of novel that has slow development so keep on reading and you will be rewarded. Of course, the writing is not perfect but I do enjoy it a lot. Please be reminded that the MC is kind of anti hero and there is a lot of time where he is not being treated fairly. But I always love... more>> how he respond to this unfair treatment. Keep on reading guys <<less

As an lover of code grass, this is just lelouche on steroids.

Compared to omniscient reader, novel's extra, returner's magic should be special etc ; this novel truly focuses on the out-witting and countering your opponents.

For those who want to might want to read this, the main tags are: isekai, clever/cunning MC, secret organisation, nobles/medeival setting.

It's strange that every Korean novel has the Japanese commit a dozen war crimes yet you could look at the top 50 Japanese novels on the ranking and not find the word Korea. That said besides the initial edginess the novel is decent, it doesn't stand out in any particular way so if you're after standard Korean isekai genre fiction this is it.

I will call it refreshing.

I have read a lot of novels with the clever protagonist settings but some of them fall to give them the charm or simply made them inconsistent in the whole novel, by taking actions that they will not take or attitudes that derivate from his former behavior without any explanation what so ever.

It's not the best of his genre but how the author made the MC made his way through the adversities gives me the feeling of Dungeon Defense (I'm not saying that they are similar).

I... more>> advise you to read a little more chapters because the first ones don't give a full scope of the novel but again like any novel until more chapters come we don't know if can kept it up with its own quality. <<less

Mazelan mentions Isaac isn't the only person to be in a situation like this and yet in those year in Campus NO ONE LIKE THAT appear even after Isaac become an very important person a.k.a VIP and try to become his opponent. The only way I think its possible is at viscount or higher they can shutdown the agent completly since a mere baron can hide their heir in 10 year

THIS IS THE MOST UNLOGIC PART. The Campus work like a GRAND ÉCOLE in french which compose a bunch of school so you need to enroll in one to get graduate. During the talk with Mazelan his biggest problem is to survival for 5 year (No school will accept him). The problem here is every one is fk busy to try to pass the exam. The only one care is those who doesn't try and want to drop out => bully + his relatives who wish their nuisance to die. Yet there aren't any death since the new law had adapted (Only 5 in 300 year). So they can go there playing for 5 years accept some bully and get a certificat of the top school in the world while the other have to try their best to study and can be expelled????

The MC isn't too OP. He only know how others people think. The villain (so far exclude the little brother) is not too s*upid like the other isekai. <<less

I've been cat-phished by the summary!! I was expecting the second coming of Rambo when he got transported to another world. Go in there with guns blazing and makes some serious changes but nope. It has a more slice of life feel to it. Its still a good read but don't expect some serious action. Also some minor bashing on America and Japan in the first give chapters but its minor and it was to set up the character. Not my cup of tea so I pretty much just skimmed... more>> it. <<less

It's a decent novel if you have the time. There were actions made by the MC that I didn't expect, specifically chapter 94. There were parts that become confusing, but other than that, it was a superb novel to read.

y'know. this ain't my cup of tea. The synopsis IS COMPLETELY MISLEADING.

"He is told that the school will treat him as if he doesn't exist, that he isn't protected by its rules. But Isaac, or Joon-young, sees it differently. There are no rules to hold him back from getting what he wants."

That part hyped me up for some good political intrigue+fighting... but all it's been is talking and talking and more talking, and many chapters of nothing. What is this? A slice of life novel? Also, the methods involved are... more>> pretty s*upid, and everything just seems overrated. The only good stuff was the beginning, albeit it being a big ridiculous, but at least there was actually some action. Seriously. What the point of it being a fantasy world if the MC can't do shite with magic?

It was honestly made out to be this big epic of a story, full of action and adventure and vengeance, but it's just borderline shitty, and in all truths, incredibly... BORING.

Also, while the world seems clear cut at first... some things in the world building realllly don't add up. (+plotholes)

0/10 would read again. <<less

I enjoy reading a book where the main character is smart. The author also does a good job at running the line between a completely crazy main character and someone the readers cant stomach. (But I'm all in for a good antihero.)

The faults I have with the book I that very few characters can keep up with his scheming. It's sad that I can figure out what he's scheming before any book characters whose jobs hinge on it. Just writing one smart character isn't very fun. Having many duking... more>> it out is much more fun (though harder to write). But then it wouldn't be the power trip kind of book that it is. (And don't try to tell me Central is smart. It isn't.) <<less
