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

Cyan Vert, the best assassin of the continent, meets a pitiful death after having been betrayed by his own brother, whom he had trusted all his life.

If I were given another chance at life, I would live it differently. I would only trust myself, and achieve all the things I want on my own without serving anyone else but myself.

That is how I was given a second chance at life.

The Cyan Vert, a shadow who lived for others, is no more. I will now pave a path on my own, for myself!

Reading this novel is a matter of preference.

If you're like me who likes reading novels with an underdog MC but gradually gets OP and is misunderstood as "hiding his abilities, " then this story is for you.

Now onto the dissection of the story:

... more>>
  1. PLOT - The premise is obviously cliche. The MC gets OP fast and he defeats enemies with no sweat at all. Every situation almost always go according to his plan/wishes except for a couple of instances with a few hiccups. Although, there is this one event in which the enemy was able to escape and he is a big threat to MC and co. if left be so there's finally some tension going on. The plot armor here is very thick and because Cyan is the main protagonist, he enjoys the privilege of having "chance encounters" that no supporting character nor extra will ever experience.
    • Revenge theme - MC's way of revenge is thwarting his mortal enemy's plans and waiting for him to reach his peak (the same level in his 1st life) then he will kill him so the revenge will be sweet and he will be satisfied (although I can't say I agree with his way of revenge because if it was me, I'd immediately nip it in the bud.) There are events when the MC messed up Aschel's plans but the actual revenge has only really started at around c114 and it's not even in earnest but more like a prelude. So we still have a long way to go before Cyan gets his ultimate revenge on his older brother.
    • Cyan Vert (MC) - If I have to describe him, he's in denial. It's understandable cause he's an assassin in his 1st life (and is still is in his 2nd life) that's why he's indifferent and lacks empathy & compassion. Whenever his emotions get stirred up, he always denies that he cares and makes excuses that he's helping them cause it may be beneficial to him in the future and whatnot. Yeah, right. Boy can't fool me. Apart from that, I like his trait of giving hints on some supporting characters about the "path" that they can take but doesn't involve himself much with the actual journey. Cyan just lets those characters decide for themselves and fly free. One thing I don't like about Cyan though is his arrogance and overconfidence that he can defeat every single enemy that comes his way. I mean, I get it he's OP and his plot armor is very thick but I find it a bit irritating if it's constantly being reminded.
    • Supporting Characters - Quite a few of them are fleshed-out with backstories. Surprisingly, they all left impressions on me. (btw, my fav character is Emily... just sayin)
    • Villains - Aside from the third-rates, the main villain is foolish. I can't say much cause I'll have to spoil practically everything but I had quite a bit of expectation because he uses his brain to form his devious plans but it seems he lacks common sense.
  3. BATTLES - I can't say they're exciting cause the MC almost always pummels his enemies in one strike or at a very fast pace (well, he's an assassin so). I guess the most "exciting" or rather longest battle in this story is their battle with that one enemy that has escaped. My rating for the battle scenes is around 1-2 stars.
  4. ROMANCE - There's occasional hints of romance, which I would normally hate in this kind of stories but surprisingly, it adds to the depth of the FL's character. The way the MC's and the FL's relationship gradually develops is natural and satisfying. There's actually another potential candidate for the FL but honestly, it's quite obvious who's the endgame. The FL isn't some damsel in distress. She puts in massive effort even with her unfavorable and almost hopeless circumstances. I rarely like FLs in stories with OP MCs but I just can't help but feel proud of her. I felt like a parent watching her daughter gradually grow up for the better.
I stopped at c131 because the next chapter is the start of a new arc and there are only a few available chapters left. I didn't want to feel the frustration of having to stop at a crucial point so I'll be waiting for more updates before I pick this up again. Btw, there's a few mistakes in translations mainly in pronouns but it's nothing big. It won't hinder your comprehension of the story (I read in Fenrir Translations btw).

I gave this 4 stars for now because of my personal enjoyment but if I have to rate this novel without bias, it's around 2.5 - 2.8 stars. In short, it's mid. <<less

After seeing 3 groups competing for this I was hoping for something interesting. But this is your standard korean regression story. It's ok if it's your first experience.

But if you read enough of them you see this as what it is; i.e. "Oh we are doing this pattern. Bastard child. Underdog. Face slap scene to grab fathers attention. Here comes the morality pet sister, that is only good person in family. Time to get the hidden treasure to jump start"

Honestly I am half writing this review because I know I... more>> would not remember this if I notice it again 6 months later. It's that unoriginal.

If you are into this type of stories don't let me discourage you though. <<less
