i've read the raws, and this novel is one of a kind. It is completely unique and I have not seen anything like it. It is quite short, but isn't unsatisfying to read.

[S] The Ancient humans achieved immortality and complete enlightenment, but slowly died out because of their lack of interest in their own lives and the universe. The last ancient human is a girl who lives alone on an artificial island and whose only remaining joy is observing the new earth and the primitive people living on it. The new world she observes is a world of magic, elves and orcs, and adventures aplenty

If you were immortal, had run out of things to do, and were practically waiting to die of boredom in a very literal meaning, would you not be something like her? Would you not try to derive pleasure out of everything that takes place around you that is unusual, intense, or different from what you expect? You no longer have the drive to do, but those around you fascinate you in their desperation. You no longer have a will to do, but those around you fascinate you with their perceived... more>> ingenuity. Like watching a child grow up from birth, you see them taking the steps you had long before, noting the differences, and delighting in the learning process as they grow. You let them make their mistakes and learn or not on their own. You protect them from something which is so beyond them they can't understand it yet. Just watching and enjoying their progress all the while. <<less

Very good story.

The rise and fall of an entire species seen from the perspective of a god-like bystander. People rising from the dirt and slowly crawling up, always repeating the same mistakes, only in slightly different contexts, iterating forward but eventually still making things hard for themselves.

It was quite a moving read. I'm impressed.

It's a great story about the observation of the last human on the rise of the new races of Earth. Below is pretty much the synopsis of the entire story, read at your own discretion.

Spoiler

It follows the races through each era. Each era has its own protagonist that overturns common sense of the era to usher in the new one. It also provides the POV observations of the last human as she watches them grow. The story continues to watch the new race as it follows almost the same path of the humans except they never figure out the truth behind the origin of magic. Eventually the new race dies out to the last one just like the human race did before last human and the last of the new race meet for the first time. The story end with both of them observing the new new race creating fire.

Having to suffer through the google translate was one thing, but it was totally worth it for this novel. Even though I kind of expected the ending since there are so many hints, it was still fasinating to watch the growth of humankin through the eyes of our MC, espeacially when there were so many heartwarming moments. Though, one thing I would say that is a bit lackluster about this novel is the timing as some event happened too quickly and kind of destroy the potential of further story development.... more>> I definitely wouldn't say that this novel is extraordinary (but don't take my words for it as I read the novel using google translation and many terms may have been misinterpreted), but it was indeed a refreshing reading experience. <<less

The simple explanation for this book is about what the synopsis says. The human race grew to the point of becoming godlike beings, then became bored and went into seclusion, slowly dying off to the point that only one remained. Then she watches as the universe that once revolved around her species, evolves and develops now that the humans are gone.

However, a different synopsis that I think also applies is that this is an argument for atheism. The author pretty much demonstrates how people who can't explain something rationally, uses... more>> "god" to fill in the gaps to create a religion—much to the detriment of that species. <<less

I had read hundred of web novels in syosetu, this is one of the best for me so far. You can't simply find this kind of story at that site, this is very unique.

From what I remember this story is divided into goddess and demon lord arc, religion revival arc, religion fall arc, automata arc, and space war arc. The plot is stay true to its path, no fool's errand plot and heavy filters, so simply yet so good.

Personally, I feel that it was quite rushed near the end but... more>> the good execution of the ending compensated for that, and it stills remains dear in my memories. <<less

... boi, where should I start it... Basically we are looking from the PoV of an ageless being. About how the humanity arise, fell into ruin, then arise again. You can see how twisted her PoV as an observer, for being ageless for too long. I mean, she felt happiness for being seen as the world's enemy smh. **laughs**

Not to the point of completely wholesome, but it's still fun to read.

Best thing i've read that was rather original for a while now.

Interesting story that is not fluff. It's like the observational diary of an anthropologist went and observed Magic using beings in a parallel world. I'm just sad that it's not longer. Hopefully this goes on and doesnt get dropped and reaches completion.

Absolutly love this novel. It's a bit difficult to relate it to others (at least from all that I've personally read so there may be something similar in which I'd love to read that as well), but because of that I'd ask that you give this novel a chance.

Soooooo spoiler for first chapter? In time it's shown that she's a bit mental, but she IS AT LEAST 100 Million y/o based off of the first chapter, as it's stated she became the last Earthling 100 million years ago, so give her some leeway with her mental state.

Anyways, again I ask you give this novel a try, as to me it's pretty unique and captivating. <<less

I saw some of the reviews who read the raws and got curious so I decided to read the raws (Still waiting for the raws since google translate can still be horrendous). This is a definite must-read, it is short but sweet. It was really cool with how we watch a species develop from essentially god-like entity's perspective.

Despite what people here may be saying; you CANNOT read this and enjoy at the same time via google translate.

Since Japanese is a contextual language, you often have to work out what's being said by rearranging and rereading what was just written in order to gather what is being talked about, which means you have to suspend your reading to go back and make sense of what you've just read.

That being said, I enjoyed this up to the translated chapter (currently 22), it's a shame that we're still in the... more>> early days of translating, almost every novel I've read so far (easily between 200-300) has been in an unfinished translation state and it's quite infuriating to begin to get engrossed in a world, only to have the story suddenly become inaccessible.

4/5 - the story itself is 5 stars up to this point, I took a star away because the current translator has barely managed to translate a single chapter per month this year (2018) - if he/she hadn't uploaded two chapters this month, they would've fallen below monthly releases. <<less

it's hard to rate this novel, I would like to rate 5 for the bravery of the author as they wrote about a topic that even their own race is not fully understand. The ideas of the novel maybe right or wrong, people may like it or not yet they were still take the challenge and wrote it. That's alone deserved a 5 stars rate

yet there are some tini (huge) flaws in the novel that ruined it : The Protagonist (a.k.a New Humankind) totally lack of a stubborn yet curiously... more>> head... they changed their beliefs so fast yet at a point of the story they suddenly forgot some one who live in some advanced islands. Every countries of every era known about her yet none questioned about her... Just how the heck can you go and invade other planets when in your own planet, there is an unknown zone with huge question mark above.... How the hell can a Sage country which were built by the curiously of one women would lets the Goddess Island out of their research range... if they were human, they would throw themself to the invisible shield till they understand how it work, try to communicate with the mysterious girl and solve the question about their origin instead of playing around with dolls... <<less

An epic in the making

Remember that one episode in Ancient Aliens where they are rewording the Mahabharata with modern vocabulary and we get a Star Wars-ish story?

This story is going in that direction, and it's looking very promising so far
Can't wait for more chapters to be translated

I've read the raws for this series, and is almost perfectly translated with Google Translate, with few grammar and kanji errors. Unique and amazing, a breath of new life amongst all these shounen novels with their boring isekai plot. Beautifully planned.

Extraordinarily different to a conventional story. But it was entertaining nonetheless but I'm unable to quite put my finger on how I found it so good because of how unconventional it is.

this was something I wanted to ask the author a lot. I wanted to question over and over why did the new humanity even after they took to space never try to find the answer to the island she lived in, this was something they never tries even till the very end, it was really illogical for something like this, maybe they became arrogant thinking that the mysterious island was nothing special
