First off, the title is lie. ... more>>
Spoiler

There is no plan. The MC just gets pushed around doing stuff for others because reasons. At one point he's like, "Oh, I wouldn't have done this before. I wonder what changed?" and the answer is literally nothing because the thing he's thinking about is one of the first things to happen, before any character development could happen (Not like there's any character development anyways).

Now on to the actual review, this novel treats you like an idiot. It spends half it's time explaining stuff to you over and over.

For example, near the beginning it explains that an AWR is basically a wand. It helps people cast magic. But because that's not specific enough, it goes into detail how. But wands aren't good AWR's because the author says so. Apparently only bladed weapons are good because reasons. Now in case it wasn't obvious to you, the author then tells you that AWR's are import to magicmasters. Then he explains AGAIN what AWR's do. And again later in the same chapter. And again in a later chapter after telling you that AWR's are important one more time.

Overall this novel has a problem with show don't tell. It tells you everything, and most of it is completely redundant or boring. But despite all the time it spends telling you stuff, there's plenty of things that don't make sense. For example, the teachers teach stuff that's old and outdated even though they're supposed to be top tier mages. Considering how desperate they are to train new mages to save the world or whatever, they really shouldn't be teaching stuff that could get their students killed. Honestly I think the only reason this is in the story is to make the MC look smart when he explains it to the girls.

Speaking of which, they are bland, generic, and unlikable. There's the noble girl who treats the MC like crap until she finds out he's super strong. The kind girl who's kind and uh... kind. The doll-like girl who only cares about the MC. And of course the strong MC who's element is non-elemental but can do everything anyways.

There's no humor to speak of, it's too busy explaining stuff for that. Nor is there is there much of a plot. MC goes to school. MC meets girls. Girls fall for MC. MC trains girls. 1.5 volumes in and there isn't even a real bad guy. It's just generic evil monsters that exist so the MC can be op.
Spoiler

The first arc ends with a nondramatic fight again a monster that is easily defeated.

There's no reason for the MC to be a student. Being the number 1 and all he should've just been a teacher.
Spoiler

The novel even tells you that high tier mages become teachers, and he spends most of the his time on screen teaching the two girls anyways and NOT going to class or doing anything else a student does. He doesn't even live in the same dorms as everyone else.

TDLR: Stay away. It's not even good enough to be a generic power fantasy that you can turn your brain off to enjoy. <<less
