Shion, the ‘Hero of Darkness’. He was said to be the strongest hero ever. He believed one thing, and that was his current party members.

“I’ll defeat the Demon Lord with this party!”

That is what he swore to do, but a tragedy occurs. He was painfully betrayed by the girls that he trusted.
He barely held onto his life, but the incident left a deep scar in his heart.
He gave up on living, and while he was wandering around in a forest, looking for a way to die, a single monster appeared in front of him.

“Will you kill me, please?”

The monster asked Shion, who was still strong, despite losing his powers.
What Shion, who wanted to die as well, did was―

An opening so plain it hurts. No attempts at believable motivations, obvious logical holes, and a plot I'm willing to bet I can guess the next 100 chapters of based on the first 2 chapters.

His party members betray him because... eh? I mean, they blame jealousy. However, it just doesn't make sense. You join this person's party and pretend to be his friend/family/love interest for THREE YEARS in order to kill him because you're jealous? Not just 1 person, but THREE people who were unrelated prior to joining his party.... more>> I mean come on!!!

Then there's the whole point that they're killing off the strongest hero BEFORE killing off the demon lord. Firstly, this makes NO SENSE. Secondly, I can already tell you, a main driving plot of this story later on is going to be "without the strongest hero, the Demon Lord is free to wreak havoc, so please come back and be a hero." Then we'll have some drama about not wanting to come back and BLAH BLAH BLAH. It's too obvious!!! <<less

This the type of Light Novel which "the manga" version (if it has manga) is better than the light novel itself.

The story is simple yet interesting, but the writing isn't really good because it's too simple. The interaction between characters is simple, the plot is simple, the story progress is simple. It feels like someone tried to tell us a story about the good manga that they've read.

Btw, if you expect this to be a sad revenge story, you'll be disappointed because it's not that kind of light novel. It's... more>> more like gintama, many comedy by just simple exchange between main character and that's why if it has manga version, it would be a lot better! <<less

Nice, a different spin on the Betrayal Troupe.

Grammar: 4/5

Writing: 3/5

Story: 3.9/5

The grammar is really nice in this novel. Thank you, Translator! The writing style of the author is a tad bland, but it fits with the MC who has pretty much lost his will to live. The story is a different take on betrayal genre, instead of revenge, the MC just loses all hope in life. I'm interested to see where this story goes.

Hoping that the story "Gits good".

Kudos to this series for doing what almost no other betrayal series has done - giving the betrayers a tangible motivation for betraying the hero without making them pieces of sh*t. Sure, it doesn't glorify the betrayer, but it also doesn't try to overly glorify the MC as the only righteousness in a world filled with terrible people. The MC's first partner is also a male - yay for not immediately running into a female and getting intimate with them! It's real plot, not plot.

That said, the story is simple,... more>> Japanese updates are slow, and the English translation isn't anywhere near catching up. It's decently easy to read on Syosetu with Google Translate, but if you're not up for that this'll be a quick but light read. <<less

Seems interesting, I can somewhat tell how the plot will go. But it's too early to decide currently. I suggest you wait for more chapters to pileup before reading. The first two chapters we have seem kind of generic, though I hope it gets better over time. I'll give it a 4, for now. The translation quality is pretty good, you won't have big errors currently. I hope it doesn't get worse later on.

So far this series tickling my interest. Like something new but not in the same time.

The fact the one meet him after broken is not a women, which is the normal cliche. Make it fresh and new for japanese series.

There is no yaoi or shounen ai tag (i hope it was not a mistake from publisher), make it more epic than any new age adventure japanese.

My review so far is really looking forward for this novel development of characther. Especially, the fox guy.

  1. And of course, will our MC revenge himself or not?
