I must say not bad. Although the title really indicate the MC is a fool. He is still smart, a strategist and calculated.

Always bantering with his familiar Siberian Husky Pochi but all fun and laughs even in the face of dangers.

A real slowpoke towards learning but never gives up even 5000 years passed.

I give this 8 out of 10 since MC is pretty slow towards change and realization. But still good as it gives a broader scene for him to regained his lost humanity of values, kindness, thoughtfulness, fairness and... more>> etc.. Over the 5000 years of his isolation from the rest of the world.

A worthy story. <<less

The premise of this novel is great, a young man with low potential in magic becomes an immortal by chance, spends 5000 years learning magic and researching, after which he comes back out into the world that hasn't advanced but rather the opposite.

It's an awesome premise for the template of an op sage-like MC without any common sense and who has trouble dealing with other people, but rather than this it's just turned into a giant joke, he's basically useless because of the litRPG elements where he has horrible titles... more>> that lower his abilities and his personality is 2D at best.

The litRPG elements are horrible in themselves, they are there just as filler without any real depth, the editing of the translation is bad and the manga images thrown in is annoying as hell.

I expected better. <<less
