Protagonist Vaito, who was reincarnated as a werewolf magician, becomes the Vice Commander of the Third Division of the Demon Lord’s Army.

Having captured a frontier trade city, he is in charge of controlling and protecting it.

Formerly a human, now a monster, he understands the feelings of humans and the feelings of monsters as well. Thanks to that he is being considered as a great commander with both wisdom and courage by others, but in reality it is just one hardship after another:

Seems to have a good start - reincarnation is mentioned passingly as "oh, former japanese person, has empathy with humans". MC is a werewolf with human memories, so pretty much a human with the ability to transform into a werewolf. It's still interesting, going to have to see if it flops or not

Since there weren't any written reviews of the recent chapters I thought it would be a good reason to write my thoughts so far. The MC works under the demon king in charge of a human city which he subjugates peacefully, much to the surprise of his fellow demons. His physical strength equates to normal werewolves but leads since he can become stronger with his unique magic. The main story so far is about how the MC werewolf deals with the would-be rebels before they actually have a chance to... more>> rebel. There is not much romance in the story, with the female side characters only thinking that the MC is "nice". There are a few fights mostly seen on the large scale from above showing the mc's strategy to defeat the opposing army.

Overall it's entertaining but in a very slice of life way, without any real stakes and with a fantasy setting that doesn't really affect the story as much as a military one does. <<less

It's very similar to OverLord. One of the best WNs I've read. Humans are the Villains. The Author surpassed my expectations. This is truly brilliant. I love all these good Characters... Not only is it dark to some degree but a good amount of Humor. I only wish I could read the LN.. Anyways this needs more Translating.

Though I do see some faults here and there but no where near to complain about

Even though it's on the short side this story so far is high above most garbage here. The short chapters elude to greater things in short summary that will hopefully play out in later chapter

-the MC looking at the long term
-difference of human vs demon rule

No game nonsense, silly dues ex machina, evolution crap or numbers. The issue with reincarnation is barely emphasized. The MC has balls and is by no means the strongest.

Can't really say much more as not enough is out.

So much love for this series! For reference, I'm going to refer to this by its bookwalker title of Der Werewolf, since that's where I read it from.

Our MC is reincarnated into another world as a werewolf (a type of demon) instead of as a hero. Studying magic, he becomes the first and only werewolf mage in this world's history, and finds himself placed as a vice-commander in the demon lord's army.

In the first volume, he and a small military force conquer the trading city of Ryunheit, and the rest... more>> of this volume is about him governing it. From there, the size and story escalate and the cast continues to grow.

Veight's most notable trait is that since he's lived as both a human and as a demon, he understands both viewpoints very well. You could say he helps bridge the gap between humans and demons, making him much less antihero than you'd expect at first glance.

Der Werewolf has many entertaining characters, and it manages to juggle them all pretty well. Of course, a lot of the females seem to have a crush on Veight, but as most protagonists are, he's too dense to notice. I don't particularly mind, since he doesn't exactly have time to waste on that kind of stuff, and it's more of a cute side thing than a legitimate element to the storytelling.

Speaking of juggling, one of my favorite things about this series is how it paces itself. It's a very well-written story that isn't afraid of politics, but this is all broken up by pacing it with dialogue and action. Seems like there's always something new happening, making a very effective page-turner. Really, it's well-written and just feels good to read.

Veight isn't as clever as Dungeon Defense's Dantalian, nor is he a schemer, but he is intelligent and very competent. One of my favorite things about him is that humans spread rumors about him that get overblown. Being a modest japanese person at his heart, he always inwardly sulks in response when he hears about it. I also think that Veight is quite cool, although I'm somewhat biased since I already like (non-twilight) werewolves.

The art isn't as much about moe as a lot of Isekai, and mixes it up with a lot of cool stuff that fits the gritty world-building done by the author.

So I suppose it boils down to yes, I would recommend this series to you. If you enjoy Isekai (or werewolves!), then it's a no-brainer. It's well-written, well-paced, mature, and just generally feels good to read. Definitely give it a shot! <<less

This is just a good novel, plain and simple. The idea of a hero who is not OPAF seems to be dying but this novel might just be enough to bring it back. Not only is his strength realistic when you read the story, it makes the story that much more enjoyable because now you know he isn't some overpowered douchebag on a mission to do some weirdly fantastical thing. Warfare and the occupation process are more than enough to create a situation that is beyond interesting and its clear... more>> the author knows this. By making it so that the protagonist feels like someone you could sit down and actually have a conversation with, you get pulled into the story that much more easily.

Now they just need to update the story so that we can see how it goes. <<less

If you like a logical, strategic, or realistical reincarnation novel, this one is the thing for you.

MC reincarnated as a werewolf, doesn't really have attachment to his previous life, and think very logically. Not your everyday OP MC where he gets to be the top boss suddenly, working slowly with his limitation and condition. Not a super dense, and an agreeable MC.

It's a shame the translator didn't get author's permission to translate and stopped the translation ever since.

I'll be reviewing off the published light novels, since they have been translated and published in english.

The MC (Veight) was reincarnated as a Werewolf, with only very hazy memories of his past life. After enlisting in the Demon Army, he rapidly rose through the ranks to the position of Vice Commander, at which point he was assigned with the capture of a human city, which is where the story begins. Eschewing the typical Demon Army approach of attacking with overwhelming force, he uses a combination of espionage, intimidation, and tactical... more>> force to capture the city mostly unharmed, and obtain the (initially) reluctant cooperation of it's leadership, granting him fame and influence in the Demon ranks, and making him the target of fear and awe to the humans. This, of course, draws him to the forefront of the Demon/Human conflict.

This series is something special. Veight is a likable, relatable, and genuinely skilled diplomat, warrior, and unwitting lady-killer. There are equal parts gripping combat sequences of both individuals and whole battles, and believable political/economic intrigue. The romance, although present, is subdued and more akin to what you would expect in a real-life relationship: a sense of comradarie slowly building into something more. There are no half-naked s*ave girls pledging their undying love 20 minutes after laying eyes on the protagonist.

The only impact his reincarnation plays in the story is an ability to empathize with humans (who are generally his enemies),

a connection to the late Demon Lord,

and sometimes inspiration for his off-the-wall strategies. He does not make the same s*upid mistakes we've all seen, putting his feelings as an ex-human ahead of his new compatriots, or naively believing in human decency. He even demonstrates a willingness to not just tolerate, but embrace the new demonic culture he has been born into, such as their inherent might-makes-right mentality, demonstrated once by beating another Vice Commander into the dust for challenging him.

The side characters are hardly side characters at all, each with vibrantly distinct personalities, histories, and agendas. Much of the humor in the series is built around the fact that Veight unwittingly attributes most of his success to his former knowledge (as hazy as it is), when it is clear to the reader and everyone else that it was simply his own skill and/or hard work. <<less

oh tasty this one is... but I am not sure why. It's not missing anything that wouldn't put it in a book store. I would recommend this to the supernatural/fantasy along with kingdom building fans as it's got that kind of flavor. Now if only that would fix that next button... I can't seem to get to 21 yet.

Ok, I am the person who always uses logic to judge a novel so I can assuredly say that this novel is quite good. There are some points I want to show you guys.

  • Background setting: no Truck-sama, no Summoning, it's just like afterlife of some Japanese. Rarely some will regain their memory from previous life, and MC is one of them.
  • MC: rational guy. He acts very civilized (not doing any unnecessary killing, think first before action, his actions although not very deep but still considerably wise). He is also not an OP character, he even weak than normal werewolves! However he can use his memory from previous life and some magic to outsmart other werewolves (I love these nerd-type character, and I really like the idea using buff-magic to increase his physical capabilities to maximize werewolf's advantage: physical body).
  • The world: everyone acts exactly like their position. No OP skills bring them to higher position or something identical. Everything is made in order and described very carefully by author (how the troops assembly by maou, what tactics human uses to fight back, etc. Those are very logical)
We just have 1 problem, too many translators pick up this project, and not everyone is good at translating....

Decent enough novel, mostly about governing, with a few battles.

I'd say that the main flaw is that the characters are left way too blank, despite having the opportunity to flesh them in multiple occasions.

The writing is not bad, the translation mostly right, so it does help to get into the story itself without having weird phrases everywhere, too many "sound effects", or the sadly common huge line spacing between phrases to pad the "content" of chapters.

There is nothing especially outstanding, and the main characters are not "evil" despite being monsters... more>> and fighting humans, it's mostly a case of fighting for their own survival.

At least we don't have a protagonist that's completely withdrawn like usual, and while a bit naïve in how problems are handled, it still feels like something that could potentially happen, rather than badly put together for plot reasons.

Also, the style doesn't seem to change (up to now at least), so if the first few chapters make you feel that it's not worth your time, forcing ahead is probably not going to change your mind.

All in all, it seems like a decent novel, not award winning, but entertaining enough to waste a few hours when you have time. <<less

I'm really liking it, both the army/kingdom management and battles. But I especially like the emotions the MC has and how that affects his decisions, good and bad (making him both wise and reckless). It's definitely written well and I can realy empathize to the MC. There are no cheap tricks/plot armour and as a reincarnator, he's not unrealistically knowledgeable or adaptive. We can still see the gaps between his current and previous world occasionally.

The story talks about a human who reincarnated as a werewolf. He commands his battlefield and... more>> rules his town (which is a former human town, now occupied by demons) like how a demon with human memories would. <<less

What can I say? It's extremely boring.

MC is completely unremarkable. He's just another beta reincarnated into an RPG fantasy world. And, it's just painful to read... keep in mind, that I'm reviewing the light novel which supposedly a superior version of the web novel since it's gone through an editor and stuff.

The first couple of chapters is cringey. He acts like an 8th grader raving about how he transform into a werewolf like in Sonic Unleashed... Ohh wow, how cool. I get it you're a werewolf and not a mutt,... more>> but you don't need to point out all the specifics between werewolves, canines, monsters, and demons to help with your inferiority complex and low IQ.

He's considered a genius in body-strengthening magic thanks to his rudimentary knowledge of the human body... Oh wow, would you look at that. 21st Century medical knowledge is superior to what was known during the Middle Ages. Yeah, no sh*t.

Also, did you know that he can understand human perspectives since, gasps, he was also once a human? How is that even remotely unique for an MC? It's a wide world. There's a human that has been reincarnated into a slime, goblin, skeleton, and zombie. Heck, there's even one that's became a vending machine out of all things...

And he captured the trade city using a squad composed of his friends and neighbors... Hmm, so he's not only a reincarnated, beta-werewolf mage with an inferiority complex, but he's also a social reject. Huh, go figure. Lemme guess, you got a crush on the neighbor next door too, right?

There's no way to take this story seriously. Veight just plot-armors through everything. The whole world conspires to his favor because he's the MC. I hear it gets better, but I'm out.


The premise is just bad from the start. I just couldn't get over this plot hole during the start.

According, to the city's Viceroy. She says that the trade city is a key point in so-and-so's human alliance/nation. If that's the case, then a) why was it so poorly defended and b) why let someone so spineless like you manage the place? She just surrenders to the MC like a b*tch after he threatens her. Like really? You could have at least fought the guy, but no you try and commit suicide instead after hearing him roar. Like really? Is that going to be the standard for human female characters? I swear, she better not end up as harem material

Great novel although it's a usual Humans vs Demons premise. The MC is likeable, balanced and not overpowered (he's neither the hero nor the demon king).

He kills when he has to but is not a xianxia honey badger killing everything that moves. Diplomacy is used to win over cities when he can and we can believe he's a better ruler than the humans. There's more strategy warfare than single encounters but both are well done. Don't agree with the slice of life tag btw as most chapters are story... more>> related with few fillers with other's POV.

This is a must read for people who likes fantasy genre and one of the best in this site.

Bonus: no harem or bland females to drool over the MC for no reason. So far, no romance unless you count his devotion to the DK as love. <<less

This is a pretty fun series involving an MC reincarnated into a werewolf. He was smaller than the other werewolves, so he trained his magic instead to become the top dog. Thanks to his human memories, he has more strategies and creativity available to him. He uses this in his battles against the humans and changes their impression of demons.

The MC gave everyone the impression he was OP when he was really just clever and knew a few tricks to turn the tide. It's funny how the rumors about him... more>> increase every time he returns to a city.

Of course, he's not the only character with secrets to hide.

It's a good action/adventure/fantasy/war series worth checking out. <<less

MC is a former human who now holds a fairly high position in the Demon army as a werewolf. Very early on, we are told that MC does not possess any cheat-like abilities. Instead, he admits to being weaker than some of the fighters under his command. It is refreshing to see a MC that is not overly-cautious/hesitant, but modest (yes, there's a difference) of his abilities. Further, MC sounds intelligent, and doesn't lose himself to carnal desires or anything like that, so there's definitely good room for character development... more>> and more exploration into his worldview - which, I'd like say, isn't mindblowingly unique, but nonetheless makes for an interesting and relatable MC. There doesn't seem to be a MMORPG-like system of levels or skills in this story, which is somewhat a relief. Anyway, it is a fantasy setting, so some measure of relative strength for characterization might come into play at some point, but don't expect anything like Kumo-chan or Re:monster. There seems to be a budding focus on cultural, economical, and technological development, but it's far too early in the translations to predict where the author wants to go with this. Thus far, we've only caught a glimpse of MC's intentions to apply human knowledge, rationale, and values to his surroundings. <<less

Three chapters in and we have arrogant twin wolfs trying to usurp the MC for his position in the demon army. What does our MC do? 1) he kills them for insubordination, 2) he gives a fitting punishment, 3) he lets them go after growling. If you answer three then you got it right. This shows the lack of writing in this fic. By the third chapter, we should expect a beta MC who will deal with this kind of drama. The author chose this option because it would be... more>> too hard to write an engaging story involving politics of a person who has to balance his human and demon morals. This synopsis promises a interesting twist, however, it is like a 10 year old wrote this story. Nothing stands out, the dialogue is cardboard and numerous scenes of development is cut out and summarize in a sentence or two. I highly don't recommend this fic for teens+.

Read the Ln, seemed decent enough, NOT. Demand too much suspension of disbelief for a series going realism: trading hub on the fringe with no military outpost; a "city" with barely a town size population and a 1:11.5 ratio of guards to citizens that will be further unexplained down the line...

Honestly, I think the whole first volume is pilot garbage and I'm not sure I have enough to trudge through.

This is a sort of slow-paced, leisurely war novel. There's no tension that isn't almost immediately resolved so far. There's some fighting, some city building, some politics. It's certainly not bad, but nothing really stands out and I don't find myself eagerly awaiting new chapters. Actually, it's weird how generic/inoffensive it feels when you have a werewolf protagonist who slaughtered 300 people in a single battle, but for every cool scene like that you have ten scenes where he sips tea and wonders why people think he's so amazing.

(this... more>> doesn't affect my rating but) I'm not sure why this is tagged as Romance when there's no hint of any progress in relationships at all. At most there's a line saying "I have a crush on my childhood friend" early on, then it's never mentioned again. And every female character with a viewpoint chapter acts like a potential heroine, but there's absolutely no sign of it outside of that chapter. <<less

The story is interesting, but not enough for me to hang off my chair.

The MC feels sorta generic in personality. He's calculating and good at manipulation. It's interesting that he's a werewolf aide and not the Demon King or a Hero or something.

... more>>

Heck, he's not even the only reincarnated dude. It's interesting that the story focuses on him, not the Demon King.


The characters are okay, not too interesting but enough to be slightly memorable.

It's nice that the Demon King's troops aren't as demon-like as usual, although death is everywhere. The human enemies seem crappier than the demons so far... <<less
