The Demon King of the Frontier Life, Reincarnated to Become the Strongest Mage ~The Former Demon King Who Grows Up While Being Loved, Wants to Know Humans~ (LN)


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

In a certain frontier, there lived a mage known as ‘The Lone Demon King’.

He was just a creature that never grew old, but he was loved by the villagers as something like a Guardian Deity.

However, he was destroyed by a magic organization that regarded his existence as dangerous.

200 years later, he was reincarnated as the second son of a noble family and had acquired the strongest magic power.

“…This time, I’ll pretend to be a human skillfully”

However, being a human lover, he didn’t particularly thought of revenge, but decided to master the pretense of being human in this life.

In his previous life, he was the Guardian Deity of a region, and in this life, he is a local noble, but he doesn’t know common sense. He doesn’t even know how to take it easy.

As the second son of a noble, he was loved by his family and friends, and while he was revered as a master of magic by the Magic Guild, he rose to become the ‘Immortal Mage’ behind the scenes.

As the tags and description says, this is a grand story about an overpowered doormat status push-over who did nothing to deserve his power - a character who has the personality of a generic cardboard cut-out NPC, whose every move and thought is predictable.
Did the author spawn this junk out of necessity during the "incompetent op protags" era of webnovels to keep up or is he just that untalented?
In conclusion, read only if you've exhausted every single option. Don't read a single word otherwise.

I have some reservations about reviewing so early on in the story, but I thought it might as well be better this story gets more notoriety. The story so far has done well in introducing the characters, setting, and plot, but it's also kind of the same stale and overdone 'OP Protagonist Shows Everyone Up' kind of thing. Again, it's too early to say definitively (My Death Flags Show No Sign of Ending was quite bad in the beginning too), so hold your breath before committing to any stance on... more>> this story.

I wish stories within the same genre would be more distinct from each other, but I guess it can't be helped.

P.S. The translation is quite good! Props to Athena Translations. <<less

Really early for review so far but it seems to be very promising OP fantasy and I'm looking forward to read more. The translation quality is great but I need more chapters fast!

The character development seems well made so far and while world building has not progressed much, I think it has been logical

I really hope I get to keep 5/5 rating on this

I've read manga, web and this LN version and while the manga at least shows us some pretty visuals this has nothing to offer. The tags say it all. This is a generic story about an op good guy beta protagonist who just wants to live quietly but his op mess won't let him.

At his his previous life manga design was unique...

Fairly typical for a LIGHT novel. Characters are shallow and there's not too much in the way of world building, so it's definitely a "light", or bare bones, novel. The MC is OP but wants to be normal. Family is mostly tr*sh at first but then does a 180 after a dramatic event.

Light novels can be good for older audiences if you compact the plot and character development into a "quick read". This sort of light novel is still good, but in this case it really is more for kids... more>> (maybe middle schoolers).
