Sendai Yuusha wa Inkyou Shitai


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

Three years ago, in the land of Reinbulk, a Legendary Hero was summoned in the Kindom of Leezalion and he succeeded in repelling the Demon King. Now, five students are summoned back into Reinbulk by the Kingdom of Luxeria to fight against the Demon King and the demon army. Unlike the other heroes, Yashiro Yuu has no magical affinity and the Luxeria Kingdom has no intention on acknowledging his existence or returning him to his world.

However, Yuu is actually the previous Hero that had fought the Demon King. Moreover, he is perplexed at the situation since he knows the Demon King has not returned since he sealed him. If the seal was ever broken then he would be automatically summoned instead of normal summoned. Since he already saved the world once and the Demon King hasn’t been unsealed, Yuu decides to leave the demons to the new heroes and retire from the Hero business. So he decides to become an adventurer.

So the start was really interesting, an ex-hero being summoned again then discarded, but it quickly turned for the worse. The hero is a plain pervert, he just want to touch girl's butts, no romance whatsoever in any form.

He is really discreet in what he does, so everyone else take credit for what he does, so much that even his past achievement the 1st time he was summoned are treated like tr*sh accomplisment in the world, for no apparent reason other than bashing the MC

This novel is okay not great and not the best.. Old hero gets summoned back by accident because a different country summoned the new hero.. (He got transported with his friend whose the hero).

Anyways we got our typical slightly perverted MC and his adventure.. And how he ends up saving lives.. Again..

Anyways the story its self feels subpar you don't really feel any attachment to any of the characters and feel slightly disgusted by the first female character whose whole purpose is to be a loli.. Ugh. Anyways It's... more>> not a bad read if you can get over that and that he MC is trying to hide his hero-ness~ <<less

After 103 chapters not sure why this has a romance tag on it as the MC has no romantic interests at all, he is however a pervert, but that is it. Rest is so so, read if bored. Starts off good but declines from there.


Well he does have one romantic interest but she is dead from long ago...

A complete waste of time, slapstick with the typical pervert MC. The worst part about this novel is the beginning, since it's actually decent some readers might be tricked in but it turns into an extremely cliched and annoying read.

Listen, I love these types of novels. I love reading Isekai/strong MC/cheat MC stories, even though they often have no plot since the MC can't advance much.

However, this was rough to read. First of all, since the MC can't really get stronger (he's already at peak), in my opinion, romance should be a decent part of the story. However, there's a loli girl who complains any time the MC tries to talk to any other girl. It's incredibly annoying, like sh*t man, I'm not opposed to loli's in any way... more>> but she's so damn annoying. I feel like she's just there to prolong the story, since the MC has to try 500x harder to get with any girl.

As someone who generally loves these novels, and reads even the worst ones, but STILL can't finish this, you can see that it's not that good. You're better off reading something else, trust me. <<less

Give this noval a try and read pass the first arc (when the loli elf girl separate from mc) and the story will get better. The characters, each has its own personality but only the main one is indepth. The worst thing about it is also the characters, there's a lot of annoying one that will make you drop this novel like the young elf girl, the pirate girl, the loli hero and some more. The MC is not perfect either, he makes some s*upid decisions and have shitty personality.... more>> The plot is pretty bad with no objective, they're just screwing around meeting people. Characters development for the main characters is pretty good but shitty for the side characters. Fighting scene is pretty decent too but still have many holes.

Overall: 3.5/5
Plot: 2.5/5
Characters: 3/5
Comedy: 3/5
Characters development: 4.5/5
Fight scene: 4/5 <<less

Gets good the deeper into it you go but has a very slow start, the dude may be strong but that don't mean his mind is invincible. Don't expect any type of classic shounen power upping, rather learn about the guy as the story goes on.

it has an interesting start and goes ok until the annoying loli elf appears, seriously her constant nagging about him looking at other women or even thinking about other women is annoying since the start, and sadly even when she eventually leaves others will come to take her place and continue her work, read only if you dont have anything else better to do

Same as the other reviewers. You wont miss anything after finish book 1.
MC is already strong - world strongest. So, when being summoned back again, he has nothing to do. Nothing to be developed. So, the narrative almost likes vacation dairy of high school boy who goto kindergarten. Light novel. Many pervert joking scenes. Recommend to read while have nothing to read as the translation quality is very good, enough to cover to poor plot. That's why the extra 1 star.

Good start, main character’s summoned (kidnapped) along with the heroes to save a fantasy world, but he’s kicked out for lacking any magical power. Unknown to all people, it’s the second time he’s been summoned to that world, the first time he saved the world at a great price. Unrecognized he takes a life as a normal adventurer.

Main Character starts interesting with being open about his perverted objectives in life, but knows when to be serious, and some interactions with those who still remember him are pretty enjoyable.

But the story... more>> suffers from pacing issues, second volume has a big problem with repeated changes in the P.O.V., making the story little enjoyable, the MC’s also forced to pull the short stick in the story, forced to work from the shadows, not getting recognition but having his name and accomplishments as Previous Hero treated as garbage or non-existent. <<less

Wow. Just wow. To be honest, the summary of this light novel is mainstream. But what separates this from other novels is the author did a good job giving supplying new information. There are many mystery surrounding around the hero and his lover. But the author won't hide it until we forget about it. He feeds new information when the plot is needed. So far, there isn't any plot holes. Character development is there. The story is interesting as well. So yeah, a 5 star for this.

To be honest, this novel is not bad, but the few problems that exist are pretty substantial. First, the author has a habit where he breaks the flow of the events. When you reach the most interesting part, the author just stops and switches to something else. And then he never goes back to the event you wanted to read about. Instead, you are in the future and just know the result of the event.

... more>>

For example, I wanted to read more about the reunion with Ossan in the academy city, but as soon as they met, author switched to a different scene. Or the s*upid 5-chapter cliffhanger about the "trauma of the past" that Norn was guilty about turned out just to be chuunibyou. Many other instances where events are stopped halfway through and later we return to the end after everything was over.


Second, this s*upid MC. He is a pervert with delusions. As a result of the story being focused on MC, you only see his overreactions and perverted impulses. It just reads as an ecci manga, to be honest. You can pretty much draw manga directly from the novel. The comedy is.... mediocre. I did laugh a few times, but more often than not, it's not funny. It is the type of a s*upid humor we saw in ecchi comedy manga many times over when we were 11.

Lack of relationship depth. MC does establish some relationships, but first of all - all characters are flat. There is no personality for any of them. Second, we don't actually know enough about any of the characters to care about them. The only characters we care about are those that MC new from his previous time. Only because he talks more about them and establishes that he cares about them. However, many potentially interesting characters that can make the novel better are left behind. It is actually a contradiction that MC is such a pervert who want to do the girls, but deliberately avoids doing things with the girls at any cost. It's like he just enjoys watching underage girls in costumes and jerks off secretly, and that's all he really needs.

Lastly, the events are sooo drawn out and often are confusing. There is endless stream of inner thoughts to the point where what is happening falls to the background and often cannot be clearly traced because of inner thoughts.

Overall, the story is ok, but because it is written with these cheap tricks for comedy, the novel deteriorates substantially. <<less

Vol 1 was great but once continuing it feels weak but the back ground of the MC is nice though I hate how he is being used by the first hero aka original hero who has him doing the behind the scenes thing and the girls the MC meet go to the hero who he was summoned. It really feels like the original hero is the cause of MC love tragedy. And MC power that is only truly effective against demon lord can’t be used against others to kill or... more>> defeat them is a big handicap though if they are the vilest even with a different weapon he won't kill them... <<less

Not that much of a great read. It starts of strong with an interesting premise. You even get a pretty gruesome death early on, making you think this might be some more mature stuff.

In the end though, it regresses into some ecchi/ comedy routine. Though well, it’s not really much ecchi, seeing how the first companion the MC gets is some brutal loli who turns violent as soon as the MC got any lewd thoughts.

I'm pretty sure I have hype'd while its decent isekai when read this novel first time but meh.. Constantly hiatus translation and novel+ when trying re read first part again which I find is damn annoying make me want to express here in in form of ranting review. Remember im reviewing this with my past memories few month ago, so its kinda vague, im trying to re read but god damn it its one of kinda unre-readable, and when I want continue from newest arc, the loli is there..

Review in... more>> spoiler :


Story start as ur decent return of hero to isekai with his friend blablabla (im even forget what he want to do). Heroine, his loli baba teacher and there.. Fellow classmate as character atleast has decent characteristic with the loli elf as annoying character ever. MC is beta protagonist with op power, naive and yah short of wimpy as like other generic jp isekai. One thing im remember is the pace is okay, slice of life and world building is decent (with some of foreshadowing plot).


As the story not enough memorized for me, I can blame translation speed or my brain of lacking memory, but this prove of the story lacking of unique-ness. Tbh, im glad translator dont push away this and as free reader I cant complaint since everyone has a life..

I'm gonna trying to read again from last checkpont few month ago if its has decent ammount of chapter hope loli dissappear later. 3/5 since its okay novel but has some highly annoying character inside (MC included) and im happen to person who cant hold my stomach with it. <<less

If you can get over the annoying kid/loli elf that keep on being a noisy third wheel, I guess it could be considered ok. Previous hero re-summoned, OP, but not fame chaser, trying to not be recognized as much as he can... but this loli pulling his hair/ear/clothes at LEAST once a chapter... I'm sorry, I can't.

First volume started off strong but second volume was decent and wasn’t as strong. As you read the volumes, you will meet mc’s past comrades and acquaintances, learning his history. It’s still a decent read, but don’t expect the same quality as the first volume.
