At first, it is boring, but later on, it become too awesome!

Our MC regresses back in the past, and try his best to fulfill his promise to the Saint.

All of his action is misunderstood as love, lol.

MC is a sigma, a keeper, and devoted attendant. He kills the evil Alphas, Ugly Bastards and Ntr characters.

Read it if you loathe vile people!

I had high hopes for this novel but have decided to drop it.

I enjoyed the opening chapters. Especially the push and pull banter between Vera and the Saint. Unfortunately, it's a false front. Instead, we get to read Vera passively say "...I'm sorry" or "...I apologize" in EVERY. SINGLE. conversation from the moment Vera reunites with the Saint until the completion of the novel. (I skipped ahead a hundred chapters to see if this trend changed by at least chapter 150. It didn't.) Couldn't stand it any further. I get... more>> it. He is finding his own salvation in dedicating his life to follow, protect, and one day walk side by side with the Saint. I can understand being unfamiliar and awkward at first, or even afraid to speak out and possible taint what the MC believes to be holy. HOWEVER!

Spoiler

At ch. 39 there is a time skip, so now Vera and the Saint have been together for 3+ years. You expect me to just swallow the fact that they have been together. Inseparable. For more than three f*$#ing years, and there is absolutely no development at all!? Not even to the point where they can have an actually 2-way conversation, like 2 human beings would naturally develop the familiarity to be able to have after spending so long together!? SERIOUSLY!?! No. F*$# that.

[collapse]

My expectations and wants derived from the opening backstory will never come to fruition. Therefore, this novel is a lost cause. A disappointment. A failure. And that realization is a rather bitter one. <<less

Just by reading the synopsis, I was blown away! And after diving in, I was even more amazed. The plot may seem simple at first, but it's filled with mystery that will keep you hooked, chapter after chapter. The writing is truly extraordinary, making me feel emotions and want more with every page. Even just reading up to chapter 5, I'm certain that this novel will become a must-read for everyone. Don't miss out, give it a try and see for yourself.

Well dam I have to be honest and say that our little blind saintess rules.

As a few people have said the MC is a sigma male. I know calling characters alpha, beta or signa is a bit cringe, but it fits so well. After regressing, he becomes quite docile towards the saintess as he believes that its his role to protect her and be by her side when she needs him. Aka he believes himself to be her knight. The problem with that is that the saintess falls in love... more>> with him prety early on. So once she confeses over 3 years later, he rejects her due to him not wanting to influence her in a negative way (since he knows how selfish he can be from his past life when he lets his desires control him). But in a fascinating twist, the saintess has none of his bs. She loved him for over 3 years and wasnt about to give up just because of his dumb reasons. So she kisses him, vows to make him fall in love with her and then goes on to use every trick in the book to seduce him. Dam she is great. Both of them have such great character development. With the MC trying to become a better person and learn how to protect, while the fMC matures and learns how deal with her love.

Also I just love how the fMC acts when she is jealous. I mean girl was straight up ready to kill someone if she has suspicions that they were intrested in the MC (which were always just her missunderstandings).

There is a lot of praise that can be given for both of the main characters but I will stop here.

The plot itself focuses mostly on the romance between the 2, with incidents and mysteries sprinkled all around for when more focus will be put on the overarching plot. There is a decent amoubt of set up for that. Where this story kinda falters in its side charactera. They are solid enough, but feel a bit one note and lacking in substance. Not bad, but nothing special.

The action is solid enough with the MC being strong, but not broken, but thats more because all his opponents are very strong themselves.

The pacing is a bit on the faster side, though not too fast. If the perfect pacing is a 5, this would be a 6 or 6.5. Honestly thats about all I got to say. I highly recomend you read this one if you like action romance or fantasy romance novels. Enjoy <<less

Altough it's still 5 chap, the art is good, the writing is good.

Lots of unique font by the tl group and good word placing, altough the pace is very slow. It's not fail to deliver the vibe of the old school fantasy stories, not those cringy japanese isekai wanabe.

I bet this will bring your emotion to the whole another level.

This is a heartwarming romance novel with great character developments.

The MC, to put it jokingly, is someone who is originally selfish and cruel, but got converted into a lovable simp after realizing the greatness of the Saint's onlyfans. The MC used up his 2 weeks free trial of onlyfans, so he embarked on a journey for 4 years to make himself great and worthy to stand by her side. All the while without the Saintess knowing who he was. Doesn't this just sound like a simp suffering from parasocial relationships?

Well,... more>> all jokes aside, the MC is actually very well written. Without spoiling the plot, he is a cruel hearted and selfish person who is finally able to be reformed at the end of his life by coincidentally meeting the sentence. During that time, he also realized how much the Saintess suffered and decided to help her if he ever lived. While the first 15 or so chapters might be boring to some, it's because the author is spending time building up the MC focusing on his character development. While doing this, the author also made sure to introduce the Saintess' character and also build up the power system a little bit. After that part, from what I can see on what is currently translated, it's going to be a pretty great and sweet romance between the MC and the Saintess.

The side characters currently introduced in the translated chapters are pretty good, though I cannot really give an accurate judgement right now due to the heavy focus on the MC's development.

This novel will mainly focus on the development of the MC and the Saintess. The other things that happened are just gonna be the incentives that triggers further development from the both of them. This is gonna be a great romance novel, go read it. <<less

Though only 7 chapters have been translated so far, I'm quite enjoying the story. The storytelling is done well and I hope the story would remain consistent in its quality till the end.

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC's main reason for his oath to live for the saint is because she was able to reform such an evil being as himself. He then decides that he will not let her suffer such an end before his return in time. With his stigma he regresses and after taking care of the scums which dwell in slums, he moves to the Holy Kingdom to prepare for when the saint receives the stigma and well becomes the Saint and arrives there as well.

The translations are a bit slow and I do wish they were faster but can't complain too much. I recommend reading this but it might be better to stack chapters even though it would probably take a while. <<less

Just from 7 chapters I can already tell that author is blessed with a talent to write

Both of the MCs have depth to their characters just from reading 7 chapters their trajts are clear. Story is quite good. Plot progression is just perfect not too fast not too slow.

Translation Quality is decent. Frankly there a lot of poetic words which hard to comprehend if you aren't native so blame is automatically directed to TL quality. Although admittedly compared to their other projects which have phenomenal TL standard especially 'Main Heroines'... more>> this one falls a bit short. I believe they didn't assign a PR along with Translator, so it can be sometimes janky. But overall it's 3.5/5 compared to myriad of generic Translation out there. Downside Translator seems really busy with irl issues so updates are less frequent. However, I still suggest to read the 7 chapters and decide for yourself whether to stack up chapters or read it whenever novel gets an update because I'm pretty sure you won't be dropping it once you give it a try. <<less

I honestly don't understand so many positive reviews about this novel, it's so absurdly over the top that it leaves me totally confused, this novel is at most between 3 to 3.5 stars, I really would like to enjoy it like so many here do, but the story is simply dull watered with a generic drama which means that the main character simply does not have his personality developed properly, I agree that if it were one of the first novels that I read, I would certainly find it profound... more>> and incredible but I think that after years of reading several novels, it simply does not I manage not to make comparisons with the other novels I've read, which makes me find this novel at most a little above average... <<less

Rare Masterpiece. Hidden Gem Romance Novel with a male Protagonist. Will definitely follow it.

Some may find the the prologue excessively long, in my opinion, however a romance novel finally gives accurate motives behind the Protagonists Love & Regression.

In addition, the Translation Quality is being well done. 10/10. It's a little early to recommend it but will do so.

As a person of reason, I can't really bring myself to like this novel. This is all to much about acting totally on emotions and abandoning reason.

I decided to drop this novel, when he decided to take weeks to persuade the saint to come with him voluntarily while that person was in danger of death, while deciding that telling the person their are in danger of death is too forceful an argument.

All that because he fears being hated by the person he wants to protect. Acting like that isn't being... more>> kind and protecting, it is just selfish.

I can't bring myself to cheer for such a foolish bastard. It makes me wish he gets rewarded for his s*upidity by being unable to protect the saint and her dying an early death. (Though she wouldn't deserve it)

Even I, with my Autism and social anxiety would manage to tell someone I care about that they are in danger. <<less

the sole reason I put this rating so low is because of my dissatisfaction of the Saint. She is a character that sincerely pisses me off to no end, for one she is by far the most judgmental character in the entire novel, she is very quick to dislike someone because their interests seem weird to her, or their personality is a little eccentric, and this has been shown on multiple occasions where she can be a complete as*hole to someone because of something very minor when they had no way of knowing. She's also extremely sensitive about anything related to the MC and other women even when it's just rumors, she will literally hear a rumor about a species for example and instantly think the MC has fallen in love with them with literally no evidence to back it up, even before meeting them, it feels extremely exaggerated and frustrating. She proceeds to be extremely guarded against this race for literally no reason because of her own assumptions that had no credibility to them to begin with. Another example of her judgmental attitude just came up recently on c160, they have just recently met the apostle of death, and one thing that should be obvious, is that the apostle of death's power is related to death and is able to heighten other death related powers, such as necromancy. And because apostles are selected based on a type of personality, such as all oath apostles having stubborn personalities. You would imagine the apostle of death of selected based on a certain personality, maybe they are selected due to a pure interest in death or necromancy. However it is clear they would would have a huge advantage in necromancy, but when the apostle of death shows a pure interest in necromancy and wants to show the Saint what she can do (like when you wanna show someone close to you something you are proud of because you want to show them your interests and whatnot) the first reaction of the Saint is literal dissatisfaction with her interest, she is disappointed the APOSTLE OF DEATH is doing necromancy (which isn't even a bad thing, it's literally just making contracts with the dead and other things) and shows instant disapproval in her actions even tho she did nothing wrong and she's literally the apostle of death, and if the Saint even thought for 1 second about that fact, she would realize how judgmental she is being for absolutely no reason. It's just something I'm dissatisfied with, and annoys me to read just how much of a piece of sh*t the Saint can truly be. Another think I want to mention is how blinded the MC can be. He has made a lot growth throughout the chapter but he is still extremely frustrating. I will just mention the most recent example of this, when the group first met the apostle of death in the land of the dead, they thought she was a necromancer from afar and instantly became aggressive towards her because all the dead in the land of the dead belong to the king of the dead so they thought she was trying to steal the undead and make an enemy out of the king and get them involved, so the MC rushes through the woods towards the energy with his sword drawn and divinity flowing out of him getting ready to fight this necromancer, only to find a little girl shaking on the ground surrounded by skeletons seemingly protecting her from him, and then he realizes she's the apostle of death; and instead of sheathing his sword and trying to calm her down, nope, he instead grabs her by the arm and literally drags her back to the rest of the group while she's crying and screaming and shaking in fear. But that's not the worst part; the worst part is that later when the Saint is trying to get close to the apostle of death, she brings the MC with her once, and when the apostle of death sees him she starts shaking in fear and hides, but instead of realizing why she's scared of him and apologizing for his actions. He instead gets angry that she hates him thinking "why does she hate me? I literally did nothing wrong" and gets pissed off. Which just made me blow my top off, I have never gotten so pissed off while reading this novel, this was the most frustrating thing I have ever read from this novel, because all of the characters have genuinely treated the apostle of death badly in one way or another, and they even want to drag her back to the holy land with them, even tho in early chapters it was stated that the holy land respects all those who awaken divinity and respect their wishes wether they want to live in the holy land or not, and won't force them. Yet here they are doing just that. And they don't even treat her well, she's extremely innocent and timid, yet all of the characters in one way or another have treated her poorly. It's just something that really pisses me off, because I wish they would either genuinely care for her and treat her well or leave her alone because if they can't treat her well then they have no right to drag her to the holy land away from her master and family where she will genuinely suffer a lot.

Scratching my head over this one... I'm going to be the counter-balance voice of reason to all these weighted one-sided reviews. The first couple of chapters and these reviews here hyped me up for something great and then every chapter after that I was struggling to stay awake. After 13 chapters of the MC just b*tching about everyone and everything, and the novel just not doing anything at all after chapter 2, I gave up on it. You could easily skip chapters 2 - 13 (possibly more but I didn't... more>> read further than that) because these chapters are just a complete waste of your time. Unlike what one of the reviews here says, there is absolutely no character development happening during these chapters. The chapters that are normally devoted to world-building and character backgrounds were just completely wasted in favor of s*upid jokes and circular introspection (the MC just regurgitates the same thoughts over and over and over)... The novel constantly alludes to how evil the MC was in the past but completely fails to go into depth about it at all. It stinks of edge for the sake of edginess.

The writing is honestly... not very good. It doesn't flow well at all. That's par the course for a translated eastern novel and maybe the blame for that is on the translator, but definitely not 100% of the blame. I'm not going to rag on these guys' apparently favorite novel any longer, but I just don't see what's good about it, and I disagree with practically every reviewer here. <<less

Everone giving top tier reviews when the novel has barely started, I am here to straighten things out. Yes, the first 40 or so chapters are very good, but soon after the author completely misinterprets the MC's and the FL's characters. I think the author got too obsessed with the idea of a bratty princess and her brave (yet dense) knight. As readers of the story know, neither character is anything like this. FL starts ordering MC around and starts treating him as someone owned by her (which he is... more>> to some extent, but she doesn't have the character to treat him like that). MC becomes increasingly dense and servile with no voice or character whatsoever. It has gotten to the point where I'm wondering why FL likes MC at all. In spite of this, I have given it a 3 for it's stellar opening. <<less

A fresh and innovative take on the typical "saintess" stories I have read.

It's the story of a man, who at the end of his life, met a woman who had lost everything yet still had something to give him, which was regret... He regretted living his first life that way (committing crime, using his powers for his own selfish purposes but to be fair he was trying to survive ? etc) and swore to dedicate his second life to her. And then he regressed and decided to ... more>>

fulfill the oath laid upon his very soul.

[collapse]

This story has fully fleshed out characters with their unique quirks and personalities, decently vivid worldbuilding (considering it's "only" been 33 chapters I'll say it's quite good) and a distinctive magic system.

I especially like

Spoiler

How each Apostle has different powers that have their own checks and balances. Our MC is the Apostle of Oaths so his power is to set down rules that can be to his advantage... as long as he doesn't break them (and the repercussions of breaking them are greater than their rewards because you're making a "vow" so you're not supposed to break them in the first place.) To give you an example, he can lay down the "law" that he wouldn't use his left eye (so he closed it) for the entire battle but in return would gain some form of enhancements (eg. speed boost or whatever, I can't remember), and the retribution for breaking that vow (ie. opening his left eye before the fight was over) would be to lose his sight permanently.

[collapse]

The novel delves into deeper and more thought-provoking themes that I find refreshing, and I really look forward to reading more chapters.

The Saintess is really endearing, and I love
Spoiler

her budding relationship with the MC and how she's so clueless about her blossoming crush on him... Ah, to be fourteen again, lol. Her beliefs and questioning towards the gods of their world are also a realistic take; suddenly becoming blind one day, she harbored a lot of resentment towards the gods, which I can understand. Of course based on the first timeline we know she will become more mature and change her thoughts later on, so I'm looking forward to her development.

One of the best romance novels, has won 2021 "Excellence Award" on Novelpia, ranked 7th in life picks with over 6M+ views.

Although it is a regression kinda of novel, the biggest feature of this work is the process of regression. Unlike recent trends, where regression ends in a few sentences, here our protagonist's (Vera) regression isn't just described and forgotten.

Vera, a thoroughly evil person who seemed to have no regrets until the end of his life, was moved by the saint's (Renee) kindness and care towards him, while he was... more>> on his deathbed, she took care of him on her own expense, until one day she was gone..

With an oath torwards her using his stigma Vera regresses to make the future different Vera who was the king of the slums and an evil person becoming the paladin of the holy land and the saint's knight, his character development throughout the novel is amazing, his power is the sigma of oath, think of it as equivalent exchange, his oath to the saint is quite literally written on his soul (kind of reminded me of Kurapika from HxH), an example of a use, he declared a certain realm that magical spells prohibited and everyone within that realm is compensated for their physical abilities equal to their lost magical prowess and those who break the rule shall pay the price and their heart will stop beating as a result of that.

Renee, the female lead, a pure hearted blinded woman and the future saint. Her character has a lot of depth and you can relate to most of her dialogue (at least when she's serious), her power is to literally make miracles.

While the synopsis seems like a usual romance fantasy novel, it is not, the novel is targeted to anyone (as long as you have no problem with romance), it doesn't just focus on romance aspect but highly focuses on the action/fantasy parts of the story.

-The plot is made in such a simple way but it attracts the mystery in it which makes the reader enthusiastic from chapter to chapter

- Both of FL and MC have a great character development, with the MC trying to become a better person and learn how to protect the saint, the fMC matures and learns how to deal with her love.

I was never a fan of romance. But this... this shall be an exception.

The story is not exactly unique but the wholesome moments really do make you feel good. Also how a ruthless person can change so much by a person's influence too is really cool to see. So far I'm liking the story.
