The Reborn Otaku’s Code of Practice for the Apocalypse


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

Lacking a pocket dimension, lacking a power, lacking a thigh to hug onto and the three life advantages (money, power, and looks), he had been cautiously living in the apocalypse for ten full years, getting closer to falling into the zombies’ mouths, but unexpectedly he had the bad luck to be caught in a fight between two gangs and die, it really left people feeling disappointed.

But when he opened his eyes, he had returned to a decade ago, three months before the apocalypse!

Like before he still lacked an ability, an ordinary person without a pocket dimension, but he did have ten full years of experience in living in the apocalypse! Even if he didn’t fight zombies, didn’t hunt monsters, he could still live a careful farming life in the safe zone.

Find a safe house, utilise all kinds of skills from his previous life to farm in exchange for meat, and if possible, find a person to peacefully spend the rest of his life with; ordinary people had their own ordinary little pieces of happiness.

Originally believing he had picked up a beauty he returned home to prepare a golden house, but on the contrary he was the one being pushed down……someone once said, whether it is people or matters, by no means can you only look at the surface!

It's a very fluffy story and I love it!

Just that as much as how I appreciate the translator's effort; the translation just has a lot of mistakes in grammar & etc. Like for instance the word "some" is turned into "come", "not" into "no" and many more. Sometimes the sentences gets so confusing that I have to stop enjoying the story to dissect what it meant. An editor will easily fix this so I hope the translator finds a reliable editor soon, I would volunteer to be one but I'm... more>> not 100% sure of my grammar. <<less

Not bad, but MC and ML relationship seem kind of weird up to c29.

... more>>

The MC saves the ML and basically nurses him back to health. And the ML happens to have a power to create more arrows for the MC's weapon. And somehow that ability is all the ML needs to be able to mooch off of the MC. Even when the MC tries to move the ML over to an empty apartment beside him, he just ends up staying in MC's room, eats the food the MC cooks for him, and is basically living an easy life. I just get kind of frustrated, because we see from early on how many preparations and plans the MC makes to make his life after the apocalypse better, but somehow this guy comes along and only needs his power to control metal to be able to live better than basically anyone else in the city..... Just illogical. Especially since their relationship seems kind of forced for some reason.


But I have higher expectations for when the ML is fully healed. As long as he's not a moocher, I'm looking forward to their new relationship! <<less

This is one of the stories I can not forget. The setting is realistic enough. The romance is very good. Even the bromance is there. What more could you want?

Unlike typical Apocalypse novels, this one do not priotitize strength. The protagonists' number one choice are stability. And that is admirable, especially when most of other protagonists usualy lost their morals while chasing after power... and revenge. God, the revenges. Rebirth = Revenge is the most prevalent formula around here. So this one is a rare gem.

Had to Google translate my way till the end.

I liked it a lot. The ending was a good conclusion. Warmed my heart. It was worth Google translating. As wonky as the translation was, it was great.

It was interesting. Despite being reborn, MC came to know that not everything is the same as before.


Ex: The Policy Reformation of A city's base and this leading to the weakening of A city base


A lot of farming, base building, animal Care and such. There was also fighting but it was more of fighting to farm crystals or to defend. The MC is truly loyal to ML and vise versa. ML is dependable and adores his waifu.

These people, the Otaku squad, truly just wish to live good lives and I like that. I like that a lot. No super OP MC here (Hubby is pretty OP though). No harems. Just a hamster MC trying to make a nest.

10/10 would read again if it was translated hahaha. Google grammar... Is not that great.

The plot and character's relationship is good that I can't stop myself from reading it via MTL (and it readable).

The MC is a hard-working person. He does not have any special powers, super intelligence or godlike hacking skill. He just a completely ordinary one who can survive the Apocalypse by himself.

I love the MC good temperament and balanced IQ/EQ. You can see him rolling around the room, playing with his companions, cleaning or cooking something (like a good housewife lol), but when he has to be serious, he can make... more>> a sharp decision. He can also talk about cruel things with calm mind and situation based moral. <<less

indeed the story’s plot is quite interesting and I know I will come to love the later-chapters too, with my whole heart. It would be much more amazing if the chapters were uploaded swiftly 😳

I love to read this series and I just hope to be able to continue reading it;) and thank you dear translator-San to be able to convey such a good novel to us, followers;)

Update as of Chapter 29: I'm loving the relationship dynamics being displayed, it feels like a real couple slowly starting to tease their way into the other party's heart. The feelings don't feel plastic like many other "Romance" stories, it feels genuine and as spontaneous as real life thus far.

Update as of Chapter 19: The grammar is going into a slow decline, but nothing too bad, yet. The story is slowly starting to gain traction, with the setting firmly taking root, and the beginnings of an undertone to the story... more>> showing its face. I'm really looking forward to where this story takes us.

Update: I 300% missed that Yaoi tag... or was it even there to begin with? Either way, just do note down that it's there.

Loving it so far. Fairly well translated, just a few errors that don't detract from the word flow too badly. The premise and setting are nothing new but are executed quite well thus far. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. <<less

The novel is great so far at chapter 16. It is hard to give a detailed review this early, but if it keeps progressing as it has, it will be an awesome read. The plot and writing is is just as good as other top rated apocalypse stories. It's just that the romance factor is BL.

... more>>

There are not enough women due to their weakness at the beginning of the apocalypse. The writer makes the M/M bonds seem part necessity and part desire.


Based on the author's writing style so far, even if you do not like to read BL, you might want to give it a try. The romance is not the focus. It is more a part of the world building so far and if it gets naughty later on just skip it. The novel is worth reading.

The translation so far is excellent. Its smooth reading without mental distractions of wrong pronouns, sentence, tense, etc... I loved reading it!!! <<less

Really enjoying this so far. The world has been well established, the MC is very cute. If you don't like OP MCs then this is the one for you. The translation is done well. I will possibly add more once we get further, but so far I'm loving the set up.

Sure, there's romance and all. But mostly, this is about MC and friends living a heartwarming post-apocalyptic life. In a sense, it feels like those slow-paced Japanese transmigration novels where the MC is busy improving the standard of living instead of getting stronger. Apart from scavenging and zombie-hunting, they're always busy with some construction, farming, or food processing project.

Unfortunately, that did get old after a while especially since the plot forces them to rebuild twice. And perhaps the author felt that too, so the novel ended with a disappointing timeskip.
