–Using healing magic on the world itself, I’ll start over.

‘Healing magicians cannot fight alone.’ Keare, who was bound by this common knowledge, was exploited again and again by others.

But one day, he noticed what lay beyond healing magic, and was convinced that a healing magician was the strongest class. However, by the time he realized that potential, he was deprived of everything. Thus, he used healing magic on the world itself to go back four years, deciding to redo everything.

This is a heroic tale of one healing magician who became the strongest by using knowledge from his past life and healing magic.

First volume was kinda OK, but after it the story lost all tension, as MC and his harem are too powerful, versatile and knowledgeable; there's just no credible threats aside from MC's own stupidity.

A rare dark genre light novel.

This kind of genre is very rare because some dark light novel might not pass some censoring in some site.

The MC is hero healer. He is looked down upon by his party. His revenge is pretty good like nidome yuusha but more worse. But when he healed the world, he reverse the time? Its mean the world is hurting because time flow ?

This conflict is really unexplainable. But this is a novel, such a thing can sometimes forgiven.

As with most of the novels on novelupdates, overrated.

Author treats you like an idiot regurgitating the same information again and again.

The characters are so bland that calling them two-dimensional would be a compliment; I literally do not give a sh*t about any of the characters, even the MC isn't even fleshed out. This is made doubly annoying because he prioritizes describing game mechanics in-depth over actual character development.

World building is also bland, because the author keeps fleshing out tired old game mechanics we've seen millions of times instead of developing... more>> an actual interesting, deep fantasy world.

For an amateur translation it's not bad but it's not good either, it suffers from a lack of localization, grammar mistakes, spelling mistakes and awkward phrasing.

The author had a decent spin on the reincarnation/time-travel schtick but after the prologue he kept butchering it harder and harder. <<less

This series is written by the author of "Elf Tensei Kara no Cheat Kenkoku-ki", "Maou-sama Machizukuri!" and some other series. If you liked Elf Tensei then you'll probably likes this series too since it's using similar formula, but that also means negative aspects from it also carried over here.

Positively even though it's the jaded trope of redo a life for revenge, the author managed to make it flowing rather naturally and engaging. Since the author is rather seasoned writer, the plot is easy to follow and read. The MC is... more>> rather cunning and tricky maybe appealing to some readers.

Negatively, harem will ruin some of the mood similar with his other series. He is extremely ruthless and unforgiving toward males but hypocrite/soft toward females. Along with the story progression he will have girls following his orders. If you don't like out of the place harem it will probably feels a little bit annoying. <<less

If you're looking for a decent story about a healer who was abused by his teammates, went back in time, got revenge, and became the strongest hero, turn around and walk away, this novel is not what you're looking for.

This novel is...a fulfillment fantasy. If I were to put a point on the matter, I'd say that revenge is the plot and everything else is secondary. World building is secondary, character development is secondary, even the abilities used is secondary. Everything in this novel exists to give you a fulfillment... more>> fantasy about getting revenge. That said if you were recently scorned by a man or woman and want to fantasize about raping them and breaking their mind repeatedly until their former self no longer exists, then magically healing them back to their prior unbroken condition only to do it all over again, then this novel is for you.

An argument could be made to say that this main character is an anti-hero. If such an argument was made, I would reply with: "The main character doesn't give enough attention to the overall situation to warrant being called an anti-"hero"." I'm a little over 22 chapters in and the overall feel of the novel has not diverged from "mindless revenge". Every action, every choice, every plan has been centered around revenge. The main character has mentioned a single thought, a single LINE, a single sentence related to the end portion of the story "defeating the Demon King" and he has only mentioned that line of thought once. Everything else has been about revenge. To point that I'm curious whether by the end of it all the author will even remember this basic point at all.

Something else that I'm dissatisfied with is how the main character continues to mind break people. Mind breaking for s*xual pleasure, mind breaking for revenge. I can see the warrant for those two, they make sense considering that this novels' overall feel is centered around being a fulfillment fantasy. However the main character does not stop, he continues to mind break even basic people who aren't even involved, purely to satisfy his "curiosity" to what their choices will be, which is blatantly stated by his own internal monologue. Not leaving aside the fact that the main character was abused in his past life, that is all the more reason why his revenge should be more targeted towards his targets and less towards the common people he meets along the way. However, the author does not go down this path and I find that disturbing. The main character is less centralized around getting revenge on his specific targets and more interested in screwing with random people "On the Way" to his dedicated targets, and this I find truly repulsive.

If I wanted to go a step farther I could even say that this novel is subpar even as far as fulfillment fantasy's go. The mind break is rather unoriginal and most of it is skipped over. Even the rape scenes/s*x scenes are basically "They f**ked, the end.". Just an overall, poorly written fulfillment fantasy novel. <<less

I will be completely honest. I was hoping for a well describe s*x scene considering the plot and all I got is the scene getting cut every time. I had a high expectation so that was a bummer.

Setting that aside the premises is good just that the main character somewhat annoys me to some degree, probably because of how he thinks he is so kind but if you view it in other's person view he is just like any other antagonist in the story.

Short Description:

... more>>

The MC is the healing hero, seen as useless and just garbadge in the hero party. He got drugged to obey orders and was basically treated like sh*t. Someday he regains his personality and manages to turn back time to get his revenge. (All these things are naturally explained in the first few chapters)


Warning: The MC is really an asshole.. If you look for a decent character you need to look somewhere else. This novel is driven by revenge but also by the MC's determination to live this new life without restrictions.

Personally I really like it.

This revenge/ (anti) hero novel is so good.

Of course there are similarities to other hero revenge stories.

But the way the author describes Kearus revenge upon various people is way better.


I personally loved how he treated Princess Flare - I wonder what her reaction will be once she remembers everything :D


I also really enjoy Kearus reasoning - as in when he decides to take revenge and when not. Sometimes he's just hilarious ;D

The female characters also have likable characters.

Plus I'm a sucker for Brainwash Novels. Even though it only appeared once so far I freaking loved it.

Also yes there is mature content in this novel, but it's rather described in a roundabout way. And I like that all harem members get the same treatment and attention.

So if you looked at the tags and they interest you, I would reccomend giving this novel a try ^^ <<less

A different and rather fresh (has been done before but not many) take on the "reincarnation".

I'm almost tempted to give this a 2, however, because of how one dimensional characters are and how the author frustratingly breaks his own world's "laws".

... more>>

An example would be in the bedroom/prison where maids, soldiers, etc rapes him for level but he explains it's almost pointless as it's much more optimal to do it in the morning (or something) yet after he meets setsuna he explains how it can be done 3 times a day like a meal. He also talks about he will only take revenge if flare is truly "trash" to take the moral high ground but looks forward to taking revenge on the gun/sword hero, even though it was flare who got them to treat him unfairly.

It also doesn't help how he killed the attendants even though he clearly has the ability to remove memories. Also even though kureha has been identified like an "enemy" (like the heroes), it's almost guaranteed that she is going to be spared just so his harem count can be increased (while the heroes will probably die due to them being male).




This is so frustrating... Now that the MC has princess flare and is starting to develop feelings for her, we conveniently find out that her sister is the true "mastermind"... The plot hole being the hero has all the memories, so he should've known by healing flare that she had a scheming sister. But ok, that's even forgivable compared to the hero of the sword being a cross dressing female. Later the MC is going to conveniently point out that he knew all along that the hero of healing is a female and she is going to be added to his harem... WHYUDODIS AUTHOR

I'm giving it a 5 cause I'm biased towards stories that can cause that feeling of strong and raw emotions. I love betrayal stories that don't pull punches regardless of who is on the receiving end.

My one complaint is how the author went with a harem when he could have made it much more interesting. Harems are fine if you stick to two or at the most three characters and invest the time in them so they aren't one dimensional but few authors manage to pull it off well.... more>> For example he could have made it so the

Amnesiac Princess becomes someone completely different and he ends up reluctantly falling for her or had the MC decide to side with the Demon Lord.

MC's cheat has already been established as combat experience + spirit eyes + knowledge of future events. I like the way he went back in time wasn't some standard reincarnation that happens randomly with no explanation (similar to many other novels) but is instead a premeditated and man-made event the MC was planning.

The premise is very interesting and the translation pace is good enough to keep my interest in the series. I'm worried about a few implications in ch3 as it seems like he will forgive one of the people... more>> who manipulated him. If it turns into a harem with her and the demon king I'll be pretty disappointed.

Not your typical JP harem novel. Although the premise is unoriginal (guy gets betrayed, but is given a second chance), the execution is very very unique. The villains in this JP novel are not left off with a slap on the wrist and a scolding. No, no, no, none of that easygoing stuff here. The MC is like one of those crazy dudes from a mindbreak hentai.

... more>>

He tortures the princess who betrays him, by repeatedly breaking and healing her fingers. Then he rapes her, brainwashes her, and kidnaps her.

He also turns one of his enemies from a man into a woman, and had him raped by his subordinates. Pretty original stuff eh?


This is one of those novels where you shouldn't think too deeply and just turn off your brain to enjoy the ride. (The author contradicts himself quite a few times lol) It's quite different from most JP novels, and can be enjoyable if you're into this stuff, but is not a well-written or deep read by any stretch of the imagination. <<less

I have not gotten far yet so this won't be the most comprehensive review but I just wanted to take a bit to adress the premise, some basic issues with it, and some of it's initial execution.

First off the idea that there are 4 of these legendary heroes yet they find a need to brutally abuse the "healer Hero" is absurd IMO. In any RPG or even in real life medics and prized and valued. Additionally most humans will feel SOME level of gratitude to someone who saved their life.... more>> Of course people can be selfish and cruel but the level the author has them go to is pretty ridiculous.

Another issue is how the MC becomes OP. See apparently healing magic in this world doesn't speed up healing but instead returns things to a healed state. But he figured out how to abuse this and turn it into "Rewrite the state of anything as he pleases". But here is the issue... WHY DID NO ONE ELSE REALIZE THIS!?! Why is healing magic regarded as trash if it can really do all of this?

Whatever the case is between how naturally he ends up becoming OP and how unnaturally cruel everyone around him acts it all feels like a cheap set up for a "revenge" story. <<less

Firstly, I have to warn readers of inconsistencies in this novel, TL-or tries to correct them whenever he can but still, it's annoying when stats are messed up several times or the names (and even gender) of the characters as well as the laws and abilities of people.

Now about the world and people, it feels like a milder version of The Dungeon Seeker. Humans are extremely evil and treat everyone terribly (even other humans) , however even the other races are manipulative and cruel and have tons of negative traits.... more>> Now, I say it's milder than Dungeon Seeker because there is shown some sort of goal of those evil actions beside ''being evil because I can'' and there also some characters that are genuinely good (so far only the humans in the kingdom MC is in are terribly corrupted and greedy, we still don't know if all of them are like that).

As for the MC, he is pretty insane and hypocritical, perverted, cruel and has a twisted sense of justice but at least he stays that way so far and nothing that happens in the world changes his mindset.

I said insanity and twisted sense of justice because MC always wait for people he wishes to kill to first get on his bad side (or as he calls it : ''Get revenge points'') before he strikes them back since it gives him a reason for doing it. This already gets proven in the first volume when he

waits for the princess to drug, torture and order bulky soldiers to rape him before he gets his revenge on her.


About hypocrisy, he is ruthless to men, but becomes somewhat soft when dealing with females. I think this quote from him describes this trait pretty accurately :

''To be frank, apart from my village and my first love, I don't really care about anyone, but only after this many people are here, I can become serious. I have to search for someone I can feel attachment to. As I thought, I can't come to like anyone unless it's a cute girl. Are there any girls that are my taste and will make me cry and shout when they get killed ? ''


As for the his mindset overall, I would say it's quite on point for the world he is living in and that it's better than most ruthless and twisted MC's have because he knows he is ruthless and doesn't sugarcoat it in any way. Similarly to my last paragraph, there is also a quote that shows how he feels about his current life :

''That path has already vanished long ago. I chose a different path.I became the hero of Healing, degenerated into a brute, and even while being self-aware that I'm a brute, I'm doing whatever I want to my heart's content and will grab everything. And also, I don't regret a single part of it. I have money, I obtained the best women, and both my body and spirit is free. I obtained overwhelming power. As if there is any happiness better than this!''


Also, for the people who think that his second life is all about revenge and that he lives only for executing it, this is what MC has to say about it :

''After I finish my revenge, I will live a long life, and living a life without anything remaining after my revenge is lifeless. I only think of revenge as a hobby to become happy''


Now for the harem, I wouldn't say it's too good, since half it are his slaves and are brainwashed to love him, but at least there are much interactions and emotions shown from them and each girl has different traits then the other. Also, he doesn't treat his slaves too terribly like abusing them, he actually wants to improve them and because of that he often has a dilemma because it's a double-edged sword if they some day try to betray him. <<less

I give it 4 cos MC is too Mary Suu so by far he didn't encounter really hard obstruction.

MC is so broken I laugh so much.

I also looking forward to see how this gonna end cos while MC tell himself all he did is for revenge, he did do a good deeds that will lead to world peace.


I hope Freya turn back into Flare and kill him and kill herself after that cos she both love and hate him.

His harem can keep the world at peace after his dead.

Reading several chapters and I never knew what the point of it was. As an ecchi a good foundation was set, apparently hero's don't have level limits and s*x with them raises it, this forms the basis for MC's capture, rape, then reason for revenge. That's fine, problem is this world seems to view healers as useless?! Because who needs healing. After that I just got lost.

A test I use to see if I should drop book is if a skip dozen or more chapters and feel as if nothing... more>> has been missed, like there was just a timeskip or a scene change.

So far the writing is mediocre and the author makes a lot of mistakes. He will say 1 thing in a chapter and then completely contradict himself in the other. Some things are not explained well, and the main character is weird.

Character Analysis Rant:

I was unsure whether to admire his determination or scoff at his folly and weakness. His mentality is one of a weak beta (understandable as he was just a peasant) who was brutalized until he became determined to get revenge. So far I didn't have an issue... more>> with that. In fact, I can admire someone weak striving to be stronger. But his approach is utterly stupid and demonstrates his weak mind (beta male, sub tendencies, and just poor decision making).

I can understand that he thinks he cannot run, and maybe that is true. I can understand that he needs to acquire certain resistances. But what he does just reeks of weakness. He allows himself to act pathetic to reenact the circumstances that he hated. Instead of playing along and training himself, he allows himself to be brutalized to gain it that way.

And this might MIGHT have made sense, if he hadn't said one of his reasons. Part of the reason he does this is to ensure that his revenge is "justified." That by being brutalized AGAIN he can justify his revenge. This is stupid and shows a weak spirit. 1. He already can see that the princess has not changed. 2. Even if he has gone back in time, it is only 4 years. She is still the same damn person. 3. WHY DOES HE ACTUALLY CARE? He was beaten, raped, starved, drugged, and just abused for 4 years. WTF would anyone ANYONE ever want to give their abuser another chance.

So rather than going the crazy alpha (which wouldn't fit), crazy broken (might work), or just determined and sad person route (would work) he is just a determined (when he can make up his damn mind) yet weak sub. This reeks of a weak character, but is probably because the writer is Japanese and is trying to justify the MC's actions with weak Japanese "Sensibilities." That seems to be the best explanation as the hentai is off screen and fade to black, the MC seems to kill people randomly with seemingly no consistent logic, and the MC seems to be unable to make up his mind over whether to get revenge or not. He says he definitely will, and then the next sentence says well maybe not.

He decides to kill a soldier for harassing (propositioning) one of his girls but he decides to allow the soldier to hit him once, just to make it fair? What? He then kills the soldier. But a few chapters earlier one of his other girls was literally about to be chloroformed and he just hit the attacker. Did not even kill him.

One of his potential targets literally rapes little boys and then kills them so they never grow old and out of their "beauty." Said target raped the MC. The MC decides well maybe he is different in this timeline and shouldn't be killed. WTF. <<less

The MC is powerful, but his personality is twisted. The way he takes pleasure in torturing his enemies disgusts me. He values himself above all else and sees the people around him as disposable. If not for these character flaws, I would have rated this series a bit higher. If you don't mind an edgy and twisted MC, then you can consider this a 4/5 review instead of a 3/5 review.

This is a pretty typical edgy revenge story (MC got betrayed hard, got some power that enables him to do revenge, does revenge) with a LOT, I mean a LOT of s*x (not detailed, but still).

MC is OP, kills a lot (if the target 'warrants' it), rapes a lot, and basically view the world as his playground and other people as objects, things to be used and admired at best, obstacles that get way in his fun at worst.

If that sounds interesting, great, you're gonna enjoy this.

I, however, take amusement... more>> some kind of strange irony in his morally bankrupt actions. If you ever read Franken Fran, there's a story where a hero is corrupted by way of taking pleasure in revenge. He actually deliberately not-quite-betray his friends (by leaking their base for example) and then scream to vow revenge in ecstasy after seeing the aftermath.

The MC in this is like that. When he befriends someone, he thinks "wow, this person is pretty nice, I would have to take revenge if this person is killed." And lo and behold, the enemy who he knows have a high chance to kill that friend in the first place kills him, he thinks "Unforgivableee, how dare you kill my friend. Now you warrants revenge from me." I don't know whether this level of over the top bankrupt morality is intentional or not but I sure as hell amused by it <<less

The first volume was the best but every single Character is f*cked up in the head. The MC contradicts himself a lot and is a huge hypocrite. He claims to be a pacifist but I started to catch on that he was just being sarcastic. In almost every chapter MC says he never looks for trouble. He will kill if he feels like it, he will rape if he feels like it. That's all there is too it.

I also hate how the Author tries to get us sympathy for Flare... more>> later on in the story. I don't hate that he has s*x but why is the writer being hypocritical about it? At least stay true like in Elf Tensei and write it out, instead of being a round about way of doing it.

Anyways I'm still a big fan of the Author. I like how he writes about fox girls in every novel. He knows how to write a good plot and has shown significant improvement in his writing. Elf Tensei had many holes and writing was really bad. But now these characters are very well fleshed out. Though I wonder when he will write a non harem? <<less

Well, I have some ideas on this novel even though I have only read the other works like Elf Tensei and Maou-sama without actually knowing that they are from the same author, the plot as of now is rather straight forward and easy to follow, it is easy to incite hate and if logic follows then it is soon that we will have a kemonomimi girl in the harem. For revenge I hope it will not be like Tate no Yuusha, and it probably will not as seen from his... more>> other works. <<less

This is a bit of a weird one. Your first impression from the summary and early chapters is that it's a dark revenge story (which it is), but as you read further the villains get more exaggeratedly evil and MC derives delight in delving out some heavy revenge that it starts to feel more like a dark comedy.

The most glaring thing to me is how 'cheat', overpowered or even ridiculous MC's skills are, but as he uses them creatively, I can overlook it. Supporting characters are adequately fleshed out.... more>> It's fun to read how MC strategizes and takes down opponents above his level. The story flows well and keeps you interested.

All in all, if you don't take it too seriously, it's a worthwhile read.


Update at v5ch15 - Still a fun read. Not the best characterization/ world building, but the author has a way of keeping the story fresh and moving forward briskly while keeping you interested. <<less
