The Executed Sage Reincarnates as a Lich and Begins a War of Aggression


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

Sage Dwight subjugated the Demon Lord along with the hero.

They, who had returned peace to the world, were suspected of becoming the next Demon Lord and were pushed into the valley of the dead to die.

Ten years later.

Dwight quietly survived at the bottom of the ravine, becoming a skeleton that lost all its flesh.

With deep remorse, he held the hero’s dead body and said to himself.

“What’s wrong is the world. I have to prove it to them.”

Having resolved himself, Dwight ate the Miasma of the valley of the dead.

He became an existence that surpassed the previous Demon Lord and headed for the surface, leading countless undead with him.

All for the sake of world peace.

The King of the Undead, who received the strongest power, began an all-out war against humanity.

Saw the translated manga, the premise was well executed for a revenge cliché plot.

There were only a few translated chapters, so more materials are needed for a definite rating. Gonna leave this five star for now.

Great translation, but it can't make up for the fact that the story and its world lack depth.

Basically, the various elements that make up this story -- the magic system, the factions and characters Dwight encounters, the battles that occur -- are too... basic. The result is that the story has some interesting moments but ultimately fails to use its compelling premise to its full potential.

If this story had anything approaching the characterisation and world-building of a similar series like Overlord, its readability would skyrocket.

(I personally don't like Overlord... more>> as a whole, but that's because I despise evil characters and hate seeing them living well. I'd be able to stomach it if, like this series, the MC had a noble if cynical reason. But I digress) <<less

Excellent premise, the start was nice enough, everything after the initial setting is executed fairly blandly so far.

The pacing feels like someone telling a story they've heard thousands of times and absolutely hate. Dialogue is really... generic? I'd say that conversations that happen are straight cliches, but at least cliches have some flavor to them aside from salty or bland. The writing is executed in a way that evokes the feeling of a monotone professor droning on about the history of something he only knows through textbooks instead of experience... more>> or research. There is no real feeling aside from the start of the story so far, everything else feels really... meh?

Translation quality is nice enough, can't blame them for the way this turned out. They'd have to do some heavy editing to make something like this better. Hopefully the manga will do the story execution better? <<less

Pretty meh.

The translation is good, though, the writing of this story is kinda simple and you will get good results with most machine translators.

The story is... meh... very meh. It feels like the author don't know what to do with the concept he got and just creates very generic drama to fill things up.

... more>> The pacing is glacial. Almost everything is padded with characters doing nothing (just standing, or sitting or walking) or with irrelevant details. One character talking to another would take several chapters or so.

On the other hand, the author can't seem to make relevant battles, mainly because the protagonist is overpowered. The protagonist can kill anyone with a blink of an eye so the battles feels pretty much like they are dragging on. It would have been something if these battles have impact or something, I mean, the protagonist does have a goal to unite humanity but we don't really see that making these events fell pointless.

The plot is pretty much non-existent after he got his revenge. We got nothing but the protagonist just reacting to what the humans does. In short, if the humans do nothing, he will do nothing. You can see by that how aimless the plot is. Everything else that happens, especially the drama are just contrived.

The characters are really meh as well. They are barely characterized. They are shallow and really dull only having a singular gimmick to set them apart. There is this succubus girl, because why not. A typical boring anime version of what a succubus is complete with the affection for the protagonist for no apparent reason. Grom just exist. Seriously, he has no purpose in this story. The protagonist is specially boring. He pretty much zero character, nothing but a walking cardboard tube.

Overall, everything about this story is just half-baked. The writing is half-baked, the plot is half-baked, the characters are half-baked, everything is half-baked. It really has nothing that you could feast on. Sure it has nothing really terrible or offensive but it doesn't have anything filling either. It has a very interesting concept but that all this story has. <<less

This was like an imitation of Overlord but with a grudge build background character instead of starting with an OP character. The author motivation were good at first few chapter until the story began to reach to the main point of the grudge which is, the king. After that, as if it reach to the peak of it's grudge, the author seems lost to continue the story and began to become lazy with writing into short story not longer than my fart can hold. If you're thinking this as a... more>> substitute for Overlord, well, it's not quite the Overlord but a small fry lich as the title called it.. <<less

Have the Overlord vibe but a notch below. The sentence and pace through the story are not refined enough. And the main character, that was a sage, but only use fireball and bare hands to tear through stuff. Again, you don't suppose to introduce thing that is brazenly contradicted. Something as a habit of using magic, dies hard, even if he already died once. The image of a wise magician sage is now as good as a crumbling pile of bone in his bag.

Great translation quality thought.

Love the setting, and the start was excellent. But the addition of the two subordinates feel jarring as hell. Their interactions feel so awkward and unbelievable that it makes it hard for me to visualize it happening as per the setting of the story. Like, the MC is suppose to be ruthless - and he did killed lots of people - yet the bone subordinate acts like a wannabe comedian. And somehow the succubus subordinate is (at the time of writing) an ara-ara onee-san trope at the same time.

Mc's interaction... more>> with both of them feel borderline rom-com. <<less

This story has a great start. It's promising me a good revenge story--a contrast to another JP WN SOL Story. The power-up in the second chapter kinda too easy, but I don't really mind. I hope this story will continue with this kinda dark atmosphere, but we will see.
