Running Away From The Hero! (Remake)


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

When I woke up after a pretty crappy death, what greeted me was one of those famous fantasy worlds! I didn’t expect anything like becoming the strongest with a common job, or rising to the top with the weakest class…

All I wanted was to live a slow farming life, but the world just wouldn’t leave me alone! And so I equally backstabbed good people and bad people alike, becoming a villain with a true sense of equality and just when I was about to retire and enjoy a proper life on a farm…


My former disciple at the evil organisation, currently the hero of justice came looking for me. Can’t you all just leave me alone?

This was a great story before the Remake. It's just sad that I can't finish or continue reading either... Both translators dropped it. I would MTL it but I couldn't really figure out how to get the words... After all, I'm only a simple idiot who doesn't speak or read an ounce of any foreign tongue.

Finally someone start translate this series which send me into Ecstasy. Basically this story is really similiar with Konosuba except the MC doesn't really have talent and try to act like a villain.

Really recommend it for those who love Reincarnation Story with less focus on Harem and s*x Tags.

And I really Love the Translator's Group Name LMAO

I really wanted to like this, but it's boring.

  • POVs are all over the place, going forward and back on the time line, making it confusing and unfocused.
  • MC has 40 year time skip from being a farmer to a 'drill sergeant' for an evil corporation in a few paragraphs.
  • Things that would be a nice plot twist are instead explained in a dumb POV internal monologue.
  • Several POVs of the same scene, including from side and unimportant characters.
  • For more than 20 chapters he's training a new class and nothing really happens.
So much wrong... more>> in so few chapters. Could be forgiven if the story was nice, but it's not. <<less

"Although it was pure nonsense, I was thinking that although world conquest might be difficult, assassinating the demon king might be doable."

Was I the lunatic, or was the night study the lunatic! --A certain student council president’s quote


When you compare to the original RATH... this is the level up ver. with more details and elaborate and most importantly Hilarious
To whoever gave 1star are those who want to read serious novel and lots of nitpicking and had not read the First ver. and I bet they hate most Japanese and Korean novel.... might as well just stay at Royal Road and stop complaining Asian Author Novelist mentality

I PRAISE OUR TRANSLATOR Eevee for choosing such fitting group name and translating this novel

Greetings to the successor of the bat!

Finally someone has started translating this masterpiece again!

Well in all honesty I could really say that base on my experience of reading a looot of different novels, this novel is really one of the most hilarious and funniest one that I've ever read.

What's good about this one aside from making some parodies from a lot of different anime/manga/novels the author has the ability to take the reader's interest be it from the way he write the setting, plot to its every character. There's just... more>> nothing that you would hate from this novel

All in all this one is a must read novel for people who's looking to have a stomachache inducing laughter and the likes XD XD <<less

So far, this is following the original pretty closely. I'm looking forward to the changes in future chapters and, of course, to the completion of the series. This is laugh-out-loud hilarious with its ridiculous over-the-top scenarios of training from Hell--and the personality changes that result for those who survive.

What can I say? Its a comedy story based around internal monologues and interaction between characters. It does its job as a comedy story very well, with many funny things going on around the main character. The descriptions and general feel of the story always leaves one wanting more.

TL;DR It is a good story.

This is one isekai story that I truly recommend. The original story has already pull my heart string where the remake still has the same charm with more easy to understand characters, I truly recommend this if you like novels like konosuba

Always a pleasure to read. Very similar to the the previous version, but different enough to enjoy and plot holes are filled in nicely. Read this book.

Friggin great novel. I highly recommend people reading this if you're looking for a comedic short, especially when you get to see a bunch of miserable students suffering under their great (devil) teacher.

This novel is a sadistic slapstick comedy in its full form! The protagonist isn't your usual protag, who become fodder with woman who love him. Instead, he make them to become fodder to his weapon! A slap and they will be obedient. That's his style of teaching!!

In other words, think of Super Sadistic Kazuma from Konosuba without his companion. And he is sadistic to everyone. That's the MC. A laughter inducing Novel.

Certainly this is unique and original story of otherworld type novel. There's no bullsh*t about tales from baby, just to the point. Our MC are like a villains mentor who really doesnt think he's fit a role to be villain, yet others know him as most as*hole villain person ever. Other character are interesting and funny too, especially his disciple.

Setting are clear, yet the target of story still unclearly hillarious. The pace are random, but isnt confusing. World building still vague, but I think its just not describet yet. I'm... more>> really enjoying this novel, so really recommend when you need a fresh story. <<less

If the author didn't make the stupid dizzying pov transitioning, this novel would have been much greater. The novel is funny but it offsets the mood when changing perspective.

But still a hidden gem that should be read when you want a funny novel to read.

I read a lot of crappy stories. Slogged through a valley of silicon. Climbed fictional peaks with heroes. Raised slime to wage war. Race cars and heat bath water. All in the same day.

However most of those stories are okay. This is great. This is gold. I'm happy when I finish a chapter.

I don't believe there are many out there with this quality.

I just binged this yesterday+today. It's very solid, extremely good/fun. It's a little slow at first, but characters seem to have real personality and character-development and it has funny references to other series. The translation isn't perfect, but it's very good nonetheless and it's clear that the translator is putting in a lot of effort especially to find all the references to CN/WN/LN/KN stuff... Hmm, other than that I'd say that this series is very interesting and fresh and different. Give it some time since it actually has a lot... more>> of surprising development and all of the characters introduced seem to matter. <<less

A great fun novel to read if your tired of reading similar novels that focus on power leveling, harems, and women. The MC does a great job of being really interesting compare to other novels MC's.

What can I say...

Its a funny story and it gives a new wind in the reincarnation novels.

The MC is the villian. And I mean he is the villian of villians 😉

... more>> A little checlist from him:

Choppe down the world tree.... check

From the wood make a bat.... check

Hit my ungreatful disciplin, because they want to thank me for my training methods.... check

Ungreatful bastards.... check

Yes because he is so good in his job (really he is the best, all his disciplins are the creme de la creme in their kind of field. Even the drop-outs get a job) he is in the sight of every (job) headhunter. <<less

Nothing much to say except that the remake didn't dissapoint the original. That much should be enough. Having great expectations for this~
