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.

has some interesting parts. Decently following story for an isekai. It follows a main character that's more nihilistic than other MC's, which is an interesting change from norm. Has many interesting dramatic scenes particularly how thins world damns him, and he comes back to those and returns the favor. Overal it's borring and slow feeling, they made it feel a lot like a viedo game and like you were reading through a diolouge. Not my cup of tea there. In addition the anime is out, and it's more interesting in... more>> that format. Overal 2.5 stars <<less

The grammar from the translator is horrid, seriously what idiot is doing this? If theyre getting paid they should be fired immediately. I cant follow along because it doesnt make sense, maybe it gets better or something. However im not sure if I could follow the story based on actual writting either, that could be the authors fault or the translator. The only reason I know anything is because the description if I hadnt read that I would know a godamn thing about whats happening. I sincerely hope this fixes... more>> itself before I get burnt out by it because I really like the premis and idea. <<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

You might find reviews on how this story is edgy and the author is spending time on useless monologue and flashbacks. So I'm here to give you a few pointers before reading this novel to save time if you think the story in not up your alley.

Well then, first of all before I go to the main point I want to explain to you what is edgy. If you check the urban dictionary it will give you something like this "something or someone trying too hard to be cool, almost to a point where it's cringe worthy". This will be very applicable to Xianxa protagonist who just simply burst every people's head if they ever bumped into him, but these days, whenever there is... more>> a story about torture, sadness or revenge, you will hear tons of people crying "edgy!". So if you ever comes across a review that screams edgy without even a constructive criticism in the novel on how it became edgy, please ignore it, because the person who made that review has a booger clogging up his brain.

Anyway, with that out of the way, let's get to the main point.

This story is about revenge, so don't expect ponies riding across rainbow towards Happyland or something then call it edgy since there wasn't what you expected. With that being said, expect tons of betrayals and rage inducing villains in the story.

The story start of when the MC died after being betrayed and given another chance by the goddess. You should probably able to imagine that since it start of right at that time, we don't have any background on who and why he was betrayed and killed, but this will be explained bit by bit by the author as the story progress in a form of flashbacks.

THIS IS A WARNING - if you are the type who thinks all flashbacks are filler episode like in naruto as well as character and world build up are just author's way to lengthen the chapters, then you can close this site and find another novel.

With the amount of people that had betrayed the MC, there's no way for all their names to be cramped in a single chapter along with all of their individual reason by doing so. Whoever does such spoonfeeding information is a failure of an author.

So anyway, this novel as I said is about revenge and torture but the MC isn't like to Xianxia protagonist who indiscriminately kills everyone cuz they have bigger d*cks. MC is the type of person who holds on his vow and will never go back on his word for it, he is not a psycho killer you might be hoping for because he selects his targets. One more thing, if you ever read Sairin Yuusha and liked it, then this will be right up your alley. <<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.

I read till the point where I just dropped it. I understood why many translators dropped it too. Someone said to give it a try it is not a filthy whore, but it is but worst it has multiple STD's (bad things) which makes you gag.

The first thing is the MC is stupid actually strike that he oblivious and a complete dumbass. I am sorry to say this but from his flashbacks, he should know sh*t was up when he first met the demon lord as he said she saved... more>> him. That's a red flag in bright daylight if I never have seen one, to begin with.

He was betrayed and chase down. I am sorry but his experience does not match what he has shown. I was betrayed so I will go and torture people because they chase me down. No sane person would think that way. If he were insane it may be found as I understand being betrayed could make someone insane, but he is sane to me to know better.

I can say I like the other novel with the healer and stuff because he has justification for why he is like that. Drugs do sh*t to people and he has done many wrong things, but at least he is somewhat excusable but this MC is not.

He finds out that he transported to the past and punches the princess thinking he the same place dying. Doesn't make sense, I thought running away and being betrayed would make him observant, but nope. He is in the summoning chamber again and his strength is weaker yet he does not connect the dots instead takes I think 5 chapters before figuring it out pathetic.

Second, he does not try to calm down and use the situation to his advantage he goes and starts to torture and talk about everything while torturing. Now I am not sure but fighting for 4 years, being 21 (mentally), and being betrayed and chased down should at least make really mature but for him, it seems like everything went back to zero along with his stats.

He could wait and try to gain their trust along with power grinding his way to the top before turning on them, but nope he goes and torture the princess and the knights then leave them alive. Does not make sense. He tortures people in order for them to feel the pain he felt does not make sense.

He should hide and make a bunch of incidents and make it so that the people who betrayed him are chased down instead. That would be an act of more satisfying revenge.

Next, the bunny girl shows up and join why not she also wants revenge. He wants an accomplice why because of its more fun that way. Forced Harem member. Next, let's continue some more he makes her vow on a sword which makes it so that if she dies he dies and vice-versa what in the actual f**k is he thinking. He did not learn anything in his last life. He tells his secret to her and gives her almost everything. But I stayed strong and press forward.

The breaking point to me was the second forced harem or maybe 3 forced harem member the elf/dark elf. She is not needed like the Bunny girl. Demon lord is alright and maybe the saintess since it would make sense why she attacked him. I am honestly disappointed to have wasted my time to read this mess. Do not recommend for anyone to read this mess. <<less

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 ^^

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').

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

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

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

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

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

Trash. If this story was about dealing with feelings of revenge against an unfair world than it might have been good. Don’t be fooled by the description: Nidome no Yuusha is simply a cartoonish violence power-trip for edgy teens. "Revenge" is just a shallow excuse. Even if you’re into fetish violence / torture the incredible amount of useless filler and generic JP harem antics will burn you out.

The revenge plots are both incredibly drawn-out due to filler and unsatisfying due to how quickly the author wraps them up. A revenge... more>> plot starts, padded out with filler for many chapters, and then the execution of the revenge will play out over a few chapters in a brain dead / silly fashion. <<less

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.
