I'm going to own up to my mistake and be transparent, I only read the good reviews and went into this novel thinking that it was going to be similar, SIMILAR, to the novel's extra. I think it was because of the mindset I had going in that I was severely letdown, but at the same time hooked (?).

In one of the beginning chapters, the MC states that the novel he's been transferred into is a slice of life novel, and I chuckled to myself thinking "haha you're the MC,... more>> there's no way it's going to be a chill life for you, " and oh boy was I wrong. The amount of significant fights that has happened in the story up until chapter 90, I can probably count on one hand, but at the same time each fight holds more significance because there are so few. Some people might view this as a good thing, but again, like I said, with the mindset I had going into this, when I was reading, hoping for a fight to happen, it felt like I was waiting for a dad that went out to buy milk.

With my hurt feelings put aside, I think this novel is very well written, and if you're looking for a story that has significant fights and well written characters, you're in the right place. The only valid complaint I have would probably be the MC himself. The author made it so that the MC was more realistic. MC often complains that his memory isn't perfect like those protagonists sent into their own novels, and he often forgets plot elements, which is a good thing, like I said, as it makes it more realistic. But sometimes I can't help but think that the MC is too dumb? He feels really inconsistent at times and doesn't feel like someone who was sent into his own novel.

Spoiler

This is a very minor thing, but the MC often repeats what characters say and basically translates it into language even a kid would understand. I get that the author is trying to make sure the audience understands every sarcasm/hidden message/silver lining, but it happens in literally every conversation and it became annoying quite fast.

Reading reviews Is the most pointless thing ever. It may be usefull for mangas since everybody more or less reads the same mangas, but when it comes to novels everybody has their own kinks. I like subtle romance developing over many chapters, if there is none I can't really relate to the story since it seems pretty gay for there not to be any romance. Poor to rich = my shit. Side character development, multiple pov, weak to strong, smart but not unimaginably intelligent, if a novel checks those boxes... more>> then I don't care much about anything else. Just don't use this novel to set the bar, if you do then you won't be able to read much of anything else. Anyway haters always gonna hate, I know cause I wanna hate sometimes too~. Just not on a master piece like this. What would make this story the best story ever is if at the end he just f*cks all the girls but not in a s*upid Chinese Chad way but he gets drunk and just blam blams them all and they get preggers hahaha. I guess the reason why I wish that is because I have unfulfilled childhood dreams of getting down with all the girls that like me even if only a bit. Since there's a shounen tag on some sites I'll give up on that. Still 10/10. <<less

The novel begins with the death of an author because of a rise in blood pressure after reading malicious comments. He then possessed an extra character, 'Demon Prince, ' who he himself didn't know existed in the novel he wrote as punishment for crimes such as 'Being a repeat offender' and 'Having no prospects at all'. The story mostly delves into human relationships, the way MC forges bonds and how these bonds get tested during the difficult times.

Unlike the author's previous works, which had heavy atmosphere throughout the story, this... more>> work starts off with quite a bright and light-hearted beginning. But as the plot progressed, it was quite clear that the author was slowly shifting the tone to his original style.

Spoiler

Relevant Main Cast

    • Reinhardt: The main protagonist of the novel who, after his death, possessed an extra character, 'Demon Prince'. He later resolves himself to save as many lives as possible in the novel he created. Contrary to his brash behavior, he has an altruistic personality, who will always try to save others at his own expense. This character stems from the sense of debt and guilt that he has written such absurd developments in his novel. He hates people sacrificing themselves for him, so he would rather be the sacrifice.
    • Ellen: The black-haired girl in the cover, she is portrayed as a kuudere. She is the little sister of one of heroes. Considered the strongest swordsman and the also sword mentor of the Reinhardt/Vali. After the death of her brother, she became quite cold towards others. The heroine with the most screen time in the story. She was herself unaware of her feelings for Reinhardt, but eventually comes to terms with it. Currently, the most hated heroine as the KR readers legit butchered her.
    • Charlotte: The blonde girl in the cover, the Empire's princess. She was a girl who didn't appear in the original novel, as she would die in the Demon King's Castle. Reinhardt risked his life to save her. Another heroine that is currently getting a lot of hate by the Korean reader base.
    • Olivia: She is a person who was supposed to be appointed as the next commander of the Knights Templar. She is an outstanding beauty with a noble personality. She is very upfront about her feelings towards Reinhardt. Currently, the most loved heroine among the fanbase, as she is the only one who stays by Reinhardt's side during his darkest time.
    • Herriot: The twin tail girl in the cover, she is a typical tsundere, she initially looked down at Reinhardt due to her noble lineage. They eventually get close. She is also one of the few who choose to risk her life for Reinhardt.

Pros:

    • Author's immersive writing style is top tier and will pull you in and the translation quality is quite good.
    • The detailed emotional analysis of each of the characters and the way author portrayed it
    • Life like and intelligent side characters. Detailed worldview and intriguing background settings.
    • Harem actually helps to drive the plot instead of being straight up annoying
Cons:

Author's previous works such as "Hunter of the Ruined World", and "Strongest Marshall" are critically acclaimed and considered as masterpieces by many, but sadly the author rarely writes happy endings. So I'm kind of worried about it.

KKP ratings:

Due to various controversies with the author, the initial star rating of the work started seriously low (7.3/10), compared to many other novels in of Kakao Page, which does not receive very good ratings in the low 9-point range. However, from the 180th episode, the star rating reached 9 points, and was gradually reaching towards late 9-point. But after 500 chapters the star rating starts to drop once again and has stagnated somewhere between 8-9, many of the reviewers also gave 6-7 ratings. The cause of this is because author introduced a heavy atmosphere and frustrating plot development which the Korean readers usually term as "Sweet Potato"-esque situation.

Final Thoughts:

It's definitely worth the read, especially since the TL quality is quite good.

The author of the novel is one of the best in the field, so the writing style and the way the plot is driven will keep you hooked. The depth of the side characters, and the worldview is also pretty well written. Although I hoped the MC's personality would have developed alongside his strength, so I'm unsatisfied in terms of character development. Also, if you come across some negative comments in KKP, it's probably because of a certain arc as there is some frustrating development later on in the story which the Korean readers label as "Sweet Potato", but when it gets resolved the story again gets better. I think that both harem haters and lovers can enjoy this novel alike, as harem actually plays a role in driving the plot instead of being annoying. I think you probably got a rough outline.

The author previously wrote Hunter of the Ruined world and Strongest Marshall (considered one of the best sc-fi of all time) all of them are critically acclaimed and many label them as masterpieces, he is known to create waves in many genres, so he will probably do justice to this one as well. <<less

  • Have a really good start, bring some aspect I like from Novel Extra. Really hope it doesnt go toward the same direction tho! The translation is pretty good too, so really recommend it rn
  • *EDIT People says its slow because the MC goes to the academy at chapter 25, thats what laying a ground work mean. 25 chapter build up for hundreds of chapters in academy is a small proce to pay imo
  • And thing start to be really interesting. The cast is big which I really love!
  • *EDIT The MC is funny as hell man and boy he have balls. Lovable MC is a plus for sure

Dunno what it is about web novels and why they are so equally bad, but the excuse "these are novice writers" doesn't cut it. I think it's likely that they're learning how to write from web novels, so they universally learn bad habits and never improve. Like almost every single web novel, it suffers from stream-of-consciousness writing; I don't think web novel authors use outlines, and instead just make it up as they go, which is why you have the constant info dumps in the middle of chapters. It's a... more>> clear sign of a poorly-trained novice writer.

The author takes 10 sentences to describe/say what could be said in one every single chapter and gives cringe-worthy amounts of detail about s*upid, obvious, and irrelevant things. To say that this author goes off on tangents to explain completely irrelevant facts is a huge understatement. Super frustrating to read half a chapter of explanations and find out that the point the author was trying to make was literally spelled out for you beforehand. Chapter 4 of this novel is a perfect example of this. It's an entire chapter made to waste your time, and it's not even a filler.

The author obviously self-inserted himself into this novel and he flaunts his utter lack of writing ability constantly. <<less

I must say, I feel let down.

The translated chapters at the time of writing this review were 28. I went through the raws myself since I was so interested in the early premise of the novel.

I was looking forward to interesting developments, interesting talents being developed by the MC. Maybe some interesting combination of talents, maybe some talent with interesting advantages and disadvantages that the MC cleverly works around. But I was sorely disappointed. The author gave him the most lazy talent you can imagine.

... more>>
Spoiler

"Self-suggestion". Based on the name, I initially believed it was some sort of talent to hypnotize himself. Maybe to accelerate his learning, meaning he hypnotizes himself into ignoring the pain and undergo immense training. Or improve his learning of sword techniques through hypnotizing himself. Or hypnotize himself to ignore his pain/fear during battles.

It's none of that. Basically his ability is that if he believes strongly that something is possible, then it's made possible. It's ret*rded how broken this is. It's basically reality manipulation. Yeah, it not THAT powerful in it's early stages, but it's still pretty crazy. And the MC got it for cheap as hell. Just 1000 points. He got 1000 points just by tricking someone to confess to him, though that process was admittedly pretty funny.

But it's too broken of an ability for a story that seems tobe trying to take itself seriously. I mean where's the challenge in this if the MC can pull out bullsh*t power out of nowhere just because he believes in it.

[collapse]

In the coming chapters, some limitation on this might be shown, but honestly I'm just all around disappointed by the blandness of the author's choice in giving him this ability. Unfortunately I'll be stopping my reading at this point. <<less

Imagine an underdog MC. He picks his fights properly, he knows everything he's supposed to, and wins either by proper preparations that took multiple chapters, sheer luck, or a deus ex machina that makes some sense but leaves you feeling... unsatisfied.

Reinhardt (MC) is not that. Despite being the weakest character for the first like 50 chapters, Rein is not afraid to beat the living sh*t out of other people. His existence as a thirty year old man surrounded by teenagers, unlike most novels where that's ignored, is often integrated into... more>> his ideas as well as humor. Despite being an underdog, this shameless beggar refuses to give in to society through some ball-breaking ideas.

It's only 50 chapters, but hey there's illustrations and everyone's kinda hot so- <<less

Mehhh, it's alright but not that great. I feel like the MC is very incompetent. He gets to the human kingdom, in a situation where he's gonna starve to death. Takes the option which the system clearly said is always a trap and sells the magic scrolls. I feel like he's an idiot

I'll keep it simple, the story's pacing is utter garbage.

Although I love the fact that the author includes extra details and additional thoughts that adds immersion to the story, the author doesn't know when to stop. It's basically a grand feast of information (thoughts) dump. This makes the development extremely slow despite the long chapters, or what feels like a really long chapter.

I'll give you an example of what it feels like to read the story (similar to the content of the story but the plot is different, so not... more>> spoilers... kinda XD) :

Imagine the MC enters a slum. The story will start by describing this slum and where the MC got inspiration to create it (as the MC is the author and "creator" of said world). Then it would shift to what similarities and changes the MC made and even what was his thought process was when he created this slum, which is completely irrelevant to the plot.

It still doesn't end there, the MC will start blabbering about how surprised he was when there are certain details that appear in the slum which he didn't write about because he is a "lazy writer" and what he thinks of it. Which happens more often then you think.

Only then, does the story proceed normally with a description of how vulnerable he felt walking through the streets and what his thoughts are about the situation (which is very likely to be shorter than the previous babble).

You see how much "extra" information the author writes about despite only entering a single slum? The main event hasn't even started yet! Whether the author doing this is good or bad is entirely up to the person reading it, but I'll just say this. The author writes the ENTIRE thought process of the MC, who thinks too much and panics quite frequently. Though the MC is a rather normal person all in all and not a JP model citizen or a Korean badass or a Chinese tr*sh start slap face character. <<less

It's fcking painful to read it because of the pathetic MC.

He can only whine and go with the flow. Most of the time he will be pushed around by others.

He has no plans or even useful ideas, running around like a headless chicken is his most basic modus operandi.

Mc's level of intelligence is the saddest thing here though. It's a real wonder how he is unable to think of anything despite being the creator of this world. Even after getting his hands on his cheat, the first thing he does... more>> is asking for a troll-like advice from one of its functions. He threw away 1/3 of his hard earned points just like that.

I thought that maybe he will wise up with system's help but no, he met his subordinates and was pushed around once again.

I have no idea why most other reviews especially praise MC here, he is more like a joke. <<less

Goddamn this is a good novel. The premise of the story is what you read in the summary. The demon king's son goes into hiding into an academy after the demon king got killed. Except that it's the author who got sucked into the novel. The premise itself is pretty similar to The Novel's Extra. There's even a harem except that the romance part of the novel doesn't suck absolute f*cking garbage like TNE.

You get your usual harem except that all the heroines are developed amazingly well. They're not one... more>> dimensional characters that only exist to stoke the main character's ego. They all have their own lives and you can see why they fall in love with the MC.

The main character isn't OP, the man can be beat by a lot of other students. And the fights don't occur that often. But when they do? Amazing shit. The writing allows you to feel CHILLS when a meaningful fight occurs. Also, I like the main character's personality. He refuses to be hammered down and give up.

Also, the story is very interconnected. One incident that happens early has vast impacts and continues to affect the story even now.

In other words, great novel until now. I recommend it and you probably won't be disappointed with it. <<less

There's an irony with this novel, in how the MC is an author that writes angsty, apocalyptic stories. The novel he gets transmigrated into is his only attempt at a light-hearted slice-of-life story, but after running out of ideas he eventually writes in a cataclysm that turns the story into his usual angsty slop.

I'd say 400 chapters in, the same thing happens to this story. The school life parts were genuinely fun, but the author can't help but turn it all on its head with a big disaster. What annoys... more>> me most of all is that the second half really retroactively ruins a lot of the good parts of the first half. It didn't really have anything else going for it anyways, with a nonsensical 'system', lack of realism/coherence in character actions, narrow worldbuilding, etc. This isn't even just my opinion, since this is the MC transmigrating into his own novel, he lampshades how bad these aspects are and how bad of a writer he is constantly. And unfortunately he's right - it was just excusable when the story was mostly a comedy/slice-of-life.

Spoiler

Bonus point for having the guts to go for a harem ending at least, but I can't give too much credit here since the romance with several of the heroines was absolutely nuked in the second half. In general it was lacking a lot of romantic development in the most crucial stage - after they realize their feelings for eachother.

Now I have learnt that I should not always trust top reviews. They give star and complaint which doesn't say much about overall quality of the story. Such thing made overrated and underrated novels appeared all the time, in a bad way. Good quality one didn't get appreciated while generic type bad one is mostly well-known.

This story is not bad as the reviewers said out to be, it's deserved the rating and I was enjoyed reading this. I really like the gang-like personality that the MC forced to have, also... more>> the romance with misunderstanding element. Overall it's just good. Read it. Feel the satisfaction as the MC grow stronger like in shounen mangas. This novel deserve my 5 stars. <<less

If you're looking for something different and funny, this is the one for you. The updates by the translator are consistent, and the translation is really great. 5/5 stars!

This is a great novel. I'm more of a josei transmitigation into body of villainess noble woman type reader, but sometimes these male ones really hit the spot. Like this one!

Our MC is really well written, and the things he does are intelligent and natural. I've ready many of these shounen/seinen transmitigations & I never like when the focus is... more>> only on leveling up and no interpersonal interactions (aka very little genuine friendship growth over time, small conversations, etc.). This novel has a really great balance of growing stronger and also interacting with people/making friends and enjoying school life. The interactions are believable and sound.

Our MC's personality is quite funny. I don't know how much he is faking vs. Actually likes behaving this way, but he displays some anger management issues in the funniest ways with his classmates and strangers. He also isn't very powerful which is great to see. I don't like when the novel starts with someone being all-powerful, or having too many easy coincidences lead to great power. So if you feel the same way, this is defintely a perfect novel. <<less

I can't continue anymore.

I can't continue reading due to how the protagonist is, he keeps weeping about how shitty of an author he was and it's oversaturated, we already get it, you were shitty, and yet the novel keeps on slamming it to the readers faces.

Too much unnecessary exposition that it makes reading the novel feel like a chore, we're given details which are then glossed over and some are basically just used as a punchline, like how the system just hurls insults at our protagonist, it was fine at... more>> first, yet Everytime the system made a joke about our protagonist, it's always about how shitty he is and our protagonist self deprecatingly agrees, it's a total mess, does our protagonist have some sort of problem where he can't express pride? I'm sure he has shame though, yet that somehow disappears whenever the system makes the jokes, he just agrees and moves on.. What?.. Alright..

Maybe you'll find this good, but for me it's just lacking that spark that lets me use my imagination, as it keeps referencing real places, it ruins my immersion of the world he was sent in, I don't know what Seoul looks like and I don't want to see how it looks like, I want to see some originality, something that makes the world unique, and not f*cking boring as hell.

Anyways maybe some people will like it, some people won't, and this just wasn't it for me. <<less

Interesting power mechanic and also relationships around the MC

For example him managing his relationships with his 3 demon servants, good, evil, neutral

or even with his classmates where those he befriended, interested in, guided and others

... more>> His arrangement for future apocalypses while dealing with skeptical surroundings are also something to be awed

Regards the Mc's improvement as logical to a certain extend (time, hardwork, Mc's super power is to supplement his will for hardwork, trained by the best talent, good meal intake, best institute in the world), more realistic than 'I used a sword and I am invincible'

best of all are the characters, where shown side characters also gives off an interesting feeling

Small downside the D-day of apocalypse are 3 years from the day he started school, now its just 1 year after 341 chapters and 2 years to go

I was actually skeptical about this novel and I passed on reading it a couple of times because of some of the reviews.

Now, I'm so glad I read it. I binged through the whole thing. I don't really like reading through mtls because of the quality but I legitly kept on wanting to see what was going to happen next and I ended up reading the whole thing.

Some of the plot situations can be frustrating and that's completely understandable. Personally, I felt like how the story progression went just made... more>> sense in a way. Sure things could've with solved with butterflies and rainbows but nope, not this one. Majority of the characters, if not all were very humanlike and that is why I think that everything that happened seemed like it made sense why it happened whether it was good or bad.

I thought this was going to be like a school life/slice of life novel with a bit of seriousness added to it. Oh boy I was wrong. Although they didn't overly emphasize it, get ready for some feels. As you read through the chapters you'll end up thinking back to how it was in the early storylines and how much things have changed.

Anyway, I 100% recommend reading it. I could write more but I'll end it here. I would probably re-read it at some point again once the translations are actually done. It'll prolly take a year or two tho lol. <<less

I've been reading the MTL so my review is already past what's posted/translated. Rn, I'm around 500+ chapters. I'd recommend you still read the translated version because MTL have incomplete info, also it will kill your brain cells because of gender swapping and incorrect translated words. Plus the translator of this novel really did a good job translating. 👏 So first of all, let's talk about MC. He is like your slice of life MC tho I won't say the same thing with the plot of the story. You might find him s*upid, not cunning for a supposed to be author, weak and maybe for others, boring. Well, that's all true but at the same time, this makes the character more interesting. As the story progress, the character develops.

Also, I like how the other characters are portrayed as well.
Spoiler

The supposed to be member of his harem will really play a big part on future chapters. There will be an arc you will just f*cking hate Ellen, pity Charlotte, be surprised with what Harriet can do and just simp for Olivia for not giving a shit. Ah, there is also Liana.

[collapse]

Now, for the plot
Spoiler

I dare break your belief - this is not your typical school life novel. You are wrong if you think this is light hearted. It's a darn tragedy - welp, we don't know the ending yet but man, this cause me depressed. Srsly. I just did not see that coming so when that Gate whom MC mentioned in the beginning opened, death rips characters one after the another

[collapse]
You might say there are like information dumps, sentences that can be shortened and yada-yada, but I do think that the pacing is just right. The world building is good, the story itself is worthy and fun to read.

So that will be my review for this novel. Have a fun time reading. Let's all shared laughter, tears and curses. Ciao!

I picked up this novel without much expectation but it turns out to be far more interesting than how I thought it would be. The setting is your typical isekai/fantasy novel with the conflict going on between human race and demon race. However, what I find fascinating in this novel is actually the relationship between the MC and other characters.

Currently this novel can be divided into 2 parts: the Academy part till chapter 429 and the second part from chapter 430 when things start getting more serious.

The first part basically... more>> there to build up the relationship between the MC and his friends, servants, comrades and love interests: how they get to know each others, how they help each others with their problems, how they improve together and what events made their bonds grow stronger. Personally I find this part is written quite well as the author always mentions the MC's inner conflict with this

Spoiler

As all the relationship being built on a lie that he is a normal human being while he is actually the new demon king

[collapse]

And then the second part is when their bonds are being tested, especially the bonds with his friends and love interests at the Academy as

Spoiler

His identity as the demon king is exposed. He is being captured and waiting to be executed. Would his friends help him and who would stay by his side as this should be seen as an act of betrayal to the human race ?

[collapse]

As of now, the dilemma in the relationship is making a positive impact on this novel and I do recommend to give it a try. <<less

This novel is a bit of a mess, but it's a well written mess from what I could tell from the first 45 chapters.

Theres some conflict in how to author tells the story, for example: the MC is supposed to be a 30 year old author but acts like kid going through puberty, the mc's powers are explained but never actually used, and how one of the main premise of these types of novels (The fact that the MC, being an author should know alot about the world of his... more>> own story), only amounts to him knowing a few characters with surface level knowledge.

Asides from that, what this novel does well is setup a good base for a weak to strong protagonist. Even if he isn't such a bright character currently, you can somewhat sympathise with him and his outbursts or insecurities.

Ill wait till I can read more, but I do have some high hopes for the rest of the chapters. <<less

(The Demon Prince goes to Academy) masterpiece by *Geul Jengi S*
Finished at 07:35 and accompanied by the song 'NORN' by 'Rigel Theatre'

Trust me before you finish this novel, it would be better if you shut up your rotten mouth and read until the end

At the beginning of the plot, the plot is made cheerful as if it would be like an isekai novel in general, the characters displayed are not too flashy and are made to seem just passing things.. (But this is where... more>> the strength of this novel is)

The conflict starts from the middle of the story, what was initially introduced unimportantly becomes very fatal and looks memorable in this novel (I was very very impressed)

The plot is played, the characteristics of the characters change, and this is where you will see how extraordinary the foundation of the story in this novel is (this is really extraordinary)

I really can't believe how this simple-looking novel with a very complicated context can be so integrated with all kinds of conflicts such as plot, characterization, even plot holes into something magical that even somehow can be written as a novel.

I'm crying seeing how the composition of the story is so tough here, I'm really crying

Even compared to other isekai like The novel extra (bastard author) it's so despicable when compared to this novel... Really despicable that bastard novel

In essence, the strength of this novel lies in the brilliant writing, the simple but very memorable characterizations (too memorable!!) and the real plot can make a veteran like me amazed.

Actually it's too complicated to explain for this masterpiece novel, I hope you guys read it till the end and then build a fanbase of this novel

Thank you <<less
