I really wanted to like this novel, but it's just so chocked full of cliches that I can't. I'd only suggest reading this for the typical brainless shounen harem magic school novel that there are already hundreds of if you're into that kind of thing.

The main character's motive is to lead a relaxed life, but the military doesn't want to let him go because he's the strongest mage (cliche counter: 1) that does over half the military work for their country.

Even though he has absolutely zero obligation to, the main... more>> character compromises and enrolls in the country's magic school (cliche counter: 2). He hides his identity to the entire school to avoid shock (cliche counter: 3), but that just makes things worse for his "relaxed" school life because the entire school thinks he's an ass for not paying attention in class while remaining unaware that he's the top mage.

The main character is literally being strung around by the nose, and one stupid event leads to another which ends up with him getting into an argument over a silly reason with a tsundere red head (cliche counter: 4).

The main character is then tasked with teaching some girls at the school (cliche counter: 5) after his fight with said tsundere red head. Of course, those girls will end up becoming a part of his harem (cliche counter: 6).

It's like everything the main character does is counterintuitive to his goal of retiring and leading a relaxed lifestyle (cliche counter: 7) and we all expect him to get caught up in some troublesome crap.

It's like the author just put together a bunch of popular Japanese tropes to create this novel. <<less

So far, the first chapter has shown that the story is set up for a good run.

The character has a decent backstory, but it isn't so blurry and unnecessary to make you upset, and instead just gives a quick drop of what he's gone through so far in life, which I appreciate. The cliché angering the pretty girl bit kind of upsets me, but at least it wasn't something like seeing her naked or something, and the situations themselves in the 1st chapter have had good reasons to occur. Same... more>> with him being sent to the school.

He knows nothing of society and companionship. School is a perfect place to learn of it. I know, this bit is kind of ripping Magi's Grandson, but it only seems to be taking the idea for going to school a little bit, so it's okay.

He himself has stayed how he was made out to be in the prologue so far. And that's good. I hope the author keeps him like this and haves him learn to feel emotion over periods of time instead of a sudden change.

Now from the available art, I say meh. The artist for the LN was kind of lazy and I know that the art doesn't really matter for the story. But I still enjoy a bit better visuals than what I can see.

Lastly is the translation. I don't know about the author's grammar as it might've been cleaned up by the translator or editor, but the grammar seen so far is fairly well done and very easy to understand, which makes the story a thousand times easier to enjoy.

So overall, the beginning seems good, the translations are good, and the story gives me a lot of hope.

I'm can't wait to see what's next. <<less

One of the golden needles in a rotten haystack which sadly had its translation stopped. The WN was translated up to Chapter 5, while tbe manga was translated up to Chapter 4.

The story revolves around Ars Reigin, a mage who, at the very young age, has been trained by the military. Now, his duties are completed at the age of sixteen. Moreover, he was considered as the country's strongest mage. He decided to retire, but as he requested so, the governor could not let this pass by. Mainly due to... more>> his extraordinary abilities and combat prowess, the country did not suffer too much from the demons invasion. The governor laid down an alternative: a long absence of work with the contidtion to attend a general education. Ars agreed to this proposal.

A boy who somehow lacks common sense, but has incredible amout of magic unparalleled, and sort of have poor social skills, will attend an institution full of various people.

Ars was some sort of a unique person, weird to most of people, abnormal to other due to his circumstances that honed him in the past. In the academy, he do the following:

  1. He spend most of his time in the library to read books and research things. He is satisfied in meeting the minimum requirements of the curriculum so he mostly do not attend classes.
  2. Upon attending classes for the first time, he had an unusual way of talking towards other people, which made them irritated.
  3. A woman confronts him, but his unfazed demeanor, combined with his unusual way of talking and answering questions, made the woman burst out of anger that she did grab his book and throw it away.
  4. He tends to hide his powers as the academy's headmaster requested, but when the same woman declares to have a fight with him after school, he single-handedly countered her magic, which led her dumbfounded. Much less to a shocking state after the headmaster revealed her his license identity.
  5. And so on...

Hope that its translation will resume, there were very few like this one. <<less

This is a story about the strongest magician that wants to just quit after finishing his obligatory service in the military.

So the MC is forced to go to the school as a trainee before finally gets his way to retired. The MC then shows off his OPness at the school, do some duels, meets girls and such.

The beginning seems kinda cool. On how people are shocked on how OP the MC is. But.. thats it. Like some harem shounen series, the author kept giving the MC girls after girls after... more>> girls... and theyre your typical harem girls that flock around the MC. And for some odd reason, all the main cast in this story are all girls save for the MC.

If youre into those story with an OP MC thats surrounded by girls in a school setting, then this is the thing for you.

Otherwise, you might want to skip it <<less

First off, let me state that the story here has a bit of depth to it IMO.
... more>>

Part one, boy excels at magic but the world is in a crisis, so the military takes notice of the boy's talents and turns him into a bloody killing machine (Fruit of grisaia anyone??)

Part two, the boy starts to get sick of either seeing comrades die or tires of killing constantly without end

Part three, boy wishes to retire but the boy's CO panics at such statement that CO plans everything in his power to get the boy either tied to the country through a means of love or through a means of force, due to this, the boy is FORCED to go to school, which he didn't want to go to in the first place and just wanted to study magic.

Part four, boy knows he will get s*** on due to being too OP so he tries to hide his powers. Little did he guess that there's a lot of stuck up pricks in his school where the CO obviously planned in as well.

Part five, when his favourite pass time gets ruined, boy goes and implants fear to ensure previous event won't happen again, then again CO swoops in and spoils it by showing his OP stats.

Final statement, to be honest, if I was that boy as well, I wouldn't want to continue killing endlessly because it does take a toll on a said person. Second, I'd totally do the same thing if I was this boy's CO, such an asset being retired while majority of the world is still under monster control is unacceptable in this case but, the boy was turned into a killing machine at the tender age of SIX like my god child rights, then again, doesn't really matter in that crisis.I would do EVERY SINGLE TRICK IN THE GOD DAMN BOOK just to make sure that boy will keep fighting, because I would want to reclaim the land that was lost as well as increase land for future development and weapons. All in all, the aspects are good, just a slight bit rushed if some people can take it that way.


Read the spoiler to understand what I mean plz. <<less

The beginning itself is strange. Why would someone who is the best return to school just because he wants to retire? That in itself doesn't make any sense. Well it would make sense if he returned as teacher or researcher, because it was mentioned that he had contributed so much, not only as op mage but in magic theory, so why he was returned as student? Even if he doesn't want to become teacher, at least you can bother him as retire and ask him for advice while let him... more>> doing research or anything that he want to. So in the end of my rambling, this novel doesn't make any sense at all, even for fantasy and sci-fi. <<less

The story is almost direct opposite of Mahouka Koukou in that the MC is both OP since young but unlike Mahouka where Tatsuya enters school willingly the MC here is forced to enter school. They both serve for the military since childhood and still is, but Ars wishes to retire.

Ars is the top magician among thousands others, entered the military since he was 6 years old and spent 10 years serving in the front lines against demons, and is among the few who is capable of going against SS Rank... more>> demons. After serving his minimum 10 years in the military, he decides to retire so he can relax and focus on magic research, a habit he picked up when younger. Due to him being a Single Digit and also the No 1 mage, the country cant let him leave, and he also doesnt know any common sense due to growing up in the army. So he accepts the Director General's suggestion to still be attached and the military will support him fully, but he has to go to school and achieve minimum credit.

The early part of the novel is basically how he lives his new life as an awkward student trying to avoid relationship with people, and how he slowly opens up and gains emotions. <<less

I really appreciate this novel yeah it's kinda cliché but what novel isn't really it has good depth and follows the MC that lacks common sense background so it has that comedy that really helps you enjoy the story plus the way the story seems to be developing you can expect some great things
