The Raven Dark Hero ~I Longed to Be a Hero but Due to This and That I Became the Last Boss?!~


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

Since I was a child, my dream was to become a “hero”. In order to become a hero, I worked very hard and always took the initiative to help anyone that was in trouble. I didn’t have any doubts about becoming a hero but… God didn’t grant me any “gift” ability…

Or so I though but, when I was in a moment of complete despair, I suddenly gained an ability.

With this, I can finally be a hero!

But ironically, my dream crumbled on the same moment that I awakened my gift…

This is the story of a boy that acquired a huge power and will become an evil boss before he realizes it…

Its not revenge of the sword shield hero its Rising


I read this before and forgot so reread. I'm on 50+ now and remembered stuff skipped to around 83 and remembered why I dropped this and forgot. He's still friends/respects the dude that ruined his school life and cucked him.


Nothing matter more then a useful ability

I think this a pretty good start wn for people out there excluding one that got serialization comics and film adaptation I believe this is a perfect example of shitty wn and can be seen as the standard of quality for most reads it has all the tropes of bad wn wasted potential sudden shifts in tone etc I believe without the context of other stories of this genre and the Rosetinted glasses that come with new experiences this is god awful but I highly implore those unfamiliar with reading... more>> oc/translated content to read this because it has nearly every cliche and thus will give you a lot of good background knowledge for future reads.

If you arent new to skill steal, shitty revenge, totally average protag, sudden best friend, power fantasy, fifth grade syndrome, this isn't for you.

What I would recommend but with context of more cliche fantasy stories

Is fff-class hero for power fantasy

Everyone else is a returnee for totally average protagonist

For shitty revenge just don't it's bad well its good sometimes but don't scroll for it

Fifth grade syndrome- to be a power in the shadows

Literally anything adapted to and they aren't always good but they're almost always well translated or cohesive

Power steal is good? They're all the same and I can't separate them anymore

Anyways hope this helped if didn't why did you read this all <<less

I really don't know what to say about this story..... Whether it's the poorly laid out premise, or the most boring and under-developed protagonist, who fails to arouse the interest of a reader. Then again I could be wrong as the story is still in Chapter 10 and not has started according to the translator. It could be better than average if it had not been so slow in development, bringing in unnecessary and poorly made interactions that don't bring any emotion. The author or the translator had used minimum words to describe the scenarios and left much up to the reader's imagination.

Well, after all this, I can only give this story a 3 cause it's still in the beginning, and I don't usually judge any story too harshly unless it's in the later chapters... However, if the same pattern continues in the upcoming chapters... welp, you get the idea. <<less

It started out good

Until chapter 44 where MC turned from a character with an actual backbone to just another soft naïve goody too shoes "i can forgive anyone" idiot.

The "nobody deserves to die / revenge is a no no bad boo boo" bullsh*t is one of my most hated cliché that plagues many Japanese media.

The premise of the story itself is interesting. The MC starts of as a powerless member of society who dreams of becoming a hero. However, after a dark revelation he becomes emotionally unstable. He then proceeds to pick fights, and after a particularly nasty one he awakens his power (which is also fairly interesting). The story is pretty good up to this point.

However, after that the story takes a significant shift in a bad direction by the lackluster follow-up developments, and poor writing starts to drag down the initial interest.... more>> The protagonist becomes hard to relate to as he acts fairly foolish and is not particularly interesting. The plot progresses as we start to see that maybe the bad guys aren't totally evil and the good guys aren't absolute good but the execution makes it hard to be interested in the attempt at world building. I stopped reading at point so I cant say anymore but judging from those who read further than myself it doesn't seem to recover. <<less
