Nidome no Yuusha


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

Ukei Kaito fought a desperate struggle in order to fulfill his role as a summoned hero. He defeated the Demon Lord and saved the very world, only to meet an end filled but with betrayal. The companions that he’d trusted throughout his journey betrayed him and killed him by sticking a blade through his chest.

It was then that he swore to himself.

He swore that, if given another chance, he would no longer so rigidly cling to the concept of “faith.”

He swore that, if given another chance, he would dedicate himself to enacting the most atrocious act of revenge possible.

He swore that, if given another chance, he would do things right.

「I’ll kill every single last one of you… I swear it…」

And so, he died, leaving behind not but a series of menacing last words — but his story had yet to end. A voice resounded through his head and informed him that there was more to his fate than what lay beyond the grave.

Everyone is an asshole. Just deal with it. This novel is about assholes, not evil people, just simply assholes. Kaitos companions - assholes, Minnalis's village - assholes, everyone in the kingdom - assholes. If you want a story about evil characters and dystopia Dungeon Seeker is better than this. Kaito is a guy who saved the world and killed the demon lord than was killed by the kingdom he saved and that made him pissed (well if you wanted to quell unrest after the war I think using the hero... more>> as the beacon of hope, instead of backstabing him would be a better idea, but royals are assholes so never mind). I think if your daughter and wife are getting lynched by angry mob, you wouldnt simply sent them to slavery without second thought like Minnalis's father did (but again he is an asshole) and if your best childhood friend just risked your life to save you, you wouldnt simply betray her right away like Minnalis's childhood friend did (but again she is an asshole). Bottom line is that you are evil if you do terrible sh*t because you enjoy it or because you have a good reason for it. When you do evil stuff for incredibly stupid and petty reasons (like the princess who hated Kaito as soon as he was summoned and procceded to betray him even after he saved the world or Minnalis's father and childhood friend who sold her and her mother to slavery without second thought just because beastmen are "despised" in their country), then you are an asshole. But the reason I gave this novel 3 stars and not 1 is because Minnalis and Kaito are just as pissed as I am (and the way they show it simply feels good). <<less

A story about a summoned hero that’s hellbent on revenge.

The MC become a big sadist after he walk his path of revenge. You would see the MC do many kinds of torture, and how the MC somewhat enjoyed it in the process.. He is using his knowledge that he got from the tutorial mode to get even more powerfull this time around, and kill/torture all the backstabbers.

Its a pretty good read if you enjoy the antihero kinds of story.

If there were a reason to read this it would be that it's different from other stories. Worth a look, but unworthy of praise.

This book is about monologues, torture, and selfish egoism. The author has a fetish for power tripping torture. I would actually find it bearable to read, if it weren't for all the tedious monologues and inner thoughts. The MC is basically an edgy teenager turned psycho killer, albeit for ok reasons, but just because he has a reason to go on a perpetual power trip slash revenge... more>> hunt doesn't make the story a good read. Also, I personally think the MC is going pathetically overboard and he doesn't have sufficient reason to do so. If his enemies had killed his family as well that would have worked for me. <<less

A story for edgy teenagers. It's a overused revenge trope where the MC goes back in time because he was betrayed. Now the MC is a "evil" and brainless with only the most basic emotions like hate. It's like the MC never heard the world betrayal in his entire worthless life and he goes crazy when he suddenly experiences it. The slave trope is really off putting too, I guess it's a must for Japanese light novels. I do not dislike this novel but it's so much like someone putting... more>> in all their pessimistic emotions into a story and forgetting about logic.

Also all the characters on the cover look so punchable! <<less

This is something good, highly recommended!

The MC is rather sadistically good which is awesome. His vengeance is empowering him to kill his targets.

Can't wait for another carnage.

Do you believe there is only good in the world? Do you believe people to have your back? Do you believe people even when they stab you in back? Now do you believe in Revenge?

It's time to stab them back.

Grammar: 3.5/5 (formerly 4.5/5 as of ch 15)
Story: 35/5 (formerly 3/5 as of ch 17)
Writing/Translation: 3/5 (formerly 4.2/5 as of ch 15)

(Update as of Chapter 19: Thank goodness, series is back on track with the story instead of detailing simple killing as revenge. Things are starting to look good again :D)

(Update as of Chapter 17: Severe drop in quality and story. Went from a rather nice revenge story to a simple kill em all revenge story. There were nice details before that... more>> would elicit some kind of feeling, some kind of recognition that it was a revenge well done. Now it's just kinda shallow. I'll keep reading until another drop in quality or the translators give up, either way I don't hold much hope for this series getting better.)

Well, found a diamond in the rough. The story line is typical betrayal revenge, but done in a way that feels satisfying to the soul. The MC doesn't search for petty killing as a form of revenge, but the truly, deeply, burning desire to utterly destroy any semblance of life from his targets.

The grammar in particular is pretty well done from the translation group, there is a fairly good flow with wording, and phrasing that I find astounding considering it was done by a small-ish group. There are, of course, a few spots that they stumble on as far as proper wording, but it's not enough to disturb the reading experience unless you're a Grammar Nazi.

The writing and flow of the story line, although it includes some flash backs and largely boring descriptions of the world system, are fairly consistent and allow you to really get a sense of events and the proper ability to start feeling the story. No real character development has occurred yet, but the small amount that has taken place allows you to feel for the side character that gets added in. As for the MC, I find it best to imagine that he shares your own personal history to make up for the gaping hole that is his character. Maybe this will be filled in slowly as they story progresses. Maybe it will forever remain a void of any details. Either way, it doesn't hurt the story too much since I personally prefer to imagine myself in his place. <<less

Whew it's good, there's no nonsense such as 'i must bidding my time before showing my fang', pure vengeance from the start. There's no stupid heroine with muscle brain and balon breast either. Love it.

So what if it's a girl? Author-san really shine brightly without describing how 'hot' the female is, how big and plump her breast, how tiny her waist.

Definitely read this for the plot ^^

Relatively interesting twist to the "redo" genre, but not to the point where its jaw-dropping. However what made this novel worth reading so far is the vengeance aspect.
... more>>

So far the MC makes good use of the understanding he gained of the world during the tutorial to take complete advantage over the other characters (ex. The shady dealer, princess etc.) Unlike some vengeance stories, this MC has no qualms in killing or thoroughly torturing those he has a grudge on. It's a bit similar to Shield Hero but he's definitely a lot more ruthless than the shield hero.

His personality does a complete 180 from when he first started thats for sure. A good read; however there is only 13 chapters translated. I have high expectations for this one. <<less

Finally a true revenge boner, his world was sh*t, the revelation that everything he did on his first run was for nothing, the people of this world seriously contend with those on Tate no Yuusha on being the sh*ttiest kind of people you ever know.

I ragequitted JP revenge stories after reading many that in the end the MC became a complete eunuch wimp and forgave and forgot all the sh*t the world made him feel. And this decision made me know the glorious xianxia stories where the MC has... more>> balls of steel, and his revenge involves killing everyone related and their dog and then salting the land for good measure (I'm looking at you Renegade Immortal <3).

Well, this review has gone places, but my point is: I hope that those harem and romance tags doesn't plummet this novel to hell like every other i've read before, even though that was the main reason I got to know xianxia revenge stories in first place, and I seriously hope that this MC and his yandere sidekick won't mellow down, be as ruthless as an xianxia MC, and NEVER decide to forgive forget and go the: "i won't mess with you if you don't mess with me at least 1229394949 times and kill everyone that I love and leave me as a battered sack of bruises on the sideroad" route (I'M LOOKING AT YOU TATE NO YUUSHA AND ARIFURETA!!!) <<less

Reading raws~

... more>>

At later chapters, it feels like it starts to lose aim and going to the direction of harem fantasy by adding a second (loli dark elf? 14 yrs old) 'revenge partner'. Will there be a 3+? Starting to suspect his old party members were all females as well (2 showed up as characters as far as I read, and like the revenge partners, they're described as beautiful/ desirable/ striking), or atleast the new party will. These might not be considered minus factors for some readers.

I was thinking of keep reading until (maybe) 4th member of the party show up and if it's a guy then it's not a harem/I stand corrected but then decided to drop it afterall after the flashback chapters about the (also loli?) demon king main love interest.

Also at some point he's no longer gleefully rampaging/he decided to 'limit' his revenge to only a few people though there are random petty killings committed (they killed a nobleborn mage because he wanted to stay in the back/wanted him and the rabbit --who are not mages and fight in melee.-- to be tanks? Somehow it becomes ' (nobles are) selfish and not caring about other people's lives').

A really interesting read on anti-hero who greatly desires revenge to the point where his sanity is questionable.


>The hero gets betrayed by comrades
>Hero dies
>Time reversed and the hero sworn vengeance to those who betrayed him
>The once kind and naive hero became a bloodthirsty demon with a strange sadistic nature as a bonus
>Must read

Betrayals, betrayals everywhere. And revenge is the sweetest when you use your own hands to serve it cold.

Absolutely love this novel. The MC is smart, determined, decisive, cruel, and justified with his actions.

The motif of someone who was kind, but foolish in blindly trusting in someone to the point that they're taken advantage of... only to be slapped in the face with the treachery is so pitiful, us readers can't help but cheer on the anti-heroes in their journey for revenge. A major plus, it's not a harem. He... more>> gains just one companion, Minaris, who's charmingly twisted in her own right and that I have high expectations for.

So far, only 10+ chapters have been translated, but I'm definitely looking forward to more. (5/5) <<less

Intense. This is hate-wank material. The author does a good job of portraying the absolute madness and desire for revenge the Main Character has (and his lovely companion too).

While it's sufficiently brutal, I'm a teensy bit disappointed in how... uninspired... the acts of revenge have been so far.

... more>>

There have been two instances of "revenge" so far. One was just repeatedly healing and torturing the target. The other was shoving a bunch of people into a cage, driving them insane with a hunger spell, and making them eat poisoned food that turned them into goblins while making them suffer immense pain.


I'm worried that the author can't create satisfying enough resolutions for the great build ups. Maybe I've been spoiled by how extremely creative Dungeon Defense is at torture, but I was expecting more. We'll see as the story goes on.

EDIT: Gets better as the story goes on. While you may feel that the MC goes overboard, that feeling will be significantly reduced by Chapter 24. Also, he's not completely gone. At one point he realizes that it's important to avoid involving innocents in his revenge, as much as possible. Simply because he wants his revenge to be perfect in both execution and essence. In his own words,

"The line between killing for vengeance and killing to vent my anger." <<less

This is how "Tate no Yuusha" should have been. The MC is still soft against the people that betrayed him, he should be more like the MC from "Yobidasa Reta Satsuriku-sha." The MC in this series has every right to hate the world that he was summoned in, because he was betrayed by most of that world. In this series, we do not have an MC that is like a fish out water, he knows what his real goal and how to do it. I still consider the MC the... more>> hero of the story, because I see the Kingdom that betray them as evil. In other terms, the Princess is the true Demon Lord, and her followers the Demon army. <<less

it is gonna be fluffy between the hero and maoh! I am sure at least between them!
joke aside, this Story seems pretty interesting since I have always been interested in reading a Story about a hero who has been persecuted after having fulfilled his duty since I have read about them in the hero Bulletin board~. But most stories I have read is about heroes who have been abandoned before that so this is a nice Change for me~

The story starts of nice then its just destroyed the protags reason for vengence when it is reveal early on that the 3 years he was in the new world was actually just a "Demo" version of the actually world he gets summoned to. So the all the events that happend during that time didn't actually happened but he does get to keep all his OP powers. Which makes the protag a retarded villian because his so called "Revenge" is just him attacking somewhat innocent people because they kicked his... more>> ass in the "Demo".

And this is reveal very early in the story! <<less

Amazing!!! Brutally Amazing!!!!

Just amazing, and just a little recommendation for those who like metal, read this novel with your favorite black death metal band, I read this piece of art called "novel" with Belphegor and Behemoth; ohhh that atmosphere and the image of the hell that came from hear them, with that music, the novel imbues itself in a much more grim atmosphere and makes it a thousand times better.

My Playlist is:

  1. Behemoth: The satanist
  2. Behemoth: O Father O Satan O Sun
  3. Belphegor: Rise to fall and Fall to Rise I've never had such a fascinating reading!!

I can't even imagine why some reviewers gave less than 4 stars to this novel, the raw itself is on another level compared to other works and the translator also helps a lot maintaining that quality.

This novel explores the concepts of "what to do with heroes when they are not needed" and "what happens if that hero came back to bite your ass", flashback chapters may bore you but they are needed to know what happened to transform the MC into a sadistic avenger so please read them.

Finally found one of the uncommon stories where the hero has a bad past / personality. Seriously, it's kinda hard to find them; usually I only get stories where it's all talk about getting stronger and 'more gracious / benevolent / kind'... I am fed up with them.
Still, I wonder whether he can still trust someone who is not a slave in the future...
