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

The Mitsurugi household was given the important task of guarding the demon gate by the emperor.

Sora Mitsurugi, who was the heir of the family, was called on to take the trial ceremony at the age of thirteen.

The trial is something that he must overcome in order to learn the phantom blade style that was passed down the Mitsurugi household from generation to generation.

The other seven pupils of the same age who had taken the trial have all passed. And now only Sora remained.

His father, brother, fiancee, and a pair of siblings who have watched over him were all looking, as Sora’s trial ceremony solemnly began…

However, he failed that test, and was expelled from the island to survive on his own.

The story through Chapter 3 is basically the backstory. Chapter 4 is where he begins his counterattack and begins steadily gaining strength.

The MC is intelligent and cunning. You can tell he has a good heart (Hero Material), but after being betrayed and/or abandoned by literally EVERYONE he becomes cynical and more decerning of his companions (Anti-Hero Material).

The revenge is tailored to the person, ranging from hard-core capture and confinement to whimsical tricks to mess with the targets' hearts. The revenge is satisfying but too reasonable for my taste. I'd like... more>> him to go a step further, but I guess he's just a nicer guy than I am...

For instance, there's a part where he reunites with a woman who was like a big sister to him. She said some terrible things when they parted, without even realizing how cruel she was being.

His father is the one who decided to banish him. This "big sis" tells Sora that she's going to become his father's mistress. She thinks this is happy news, she wants to share her joy. What Sora hears is, "I'm going to go **** the man that betrayed and abandoned you".

When they reunite he ONLY ignores her like she's a stranger, and later even ends up saving her life. It's frustrating to me, but I can't say it's unrealistic.

If the LN follows the same path as the WN the story will continue into a much larger world after the revenge-focused part.

Pretty bad for me, here few reason

  1. The usual MC has tr*sh skill or just not awakened yet but the Family Head just banish MC (the exact same situation with other similar novel), no matter how you think it's a s*upid decision
  2. Level System, turn out this novel has level system which I hate. Basically pop out from nowhere for convenient purpose. Let just say if a person (talented or not) swing a sword 40 hours a day for few years, even an idiot would know how to effectively swing a sword but in this novel it is not, just basically because it's not leveled up so there is limit and no mastery level yet (which I presume will appear later for convenient purpose)
  3. s*upid MC become somehow smart in debate? MC is incompetent for sure, joining a guild for 5 years and didn't know the rule. If he can reasoning debate with former group, receptionist and guild master that mean he can think but for some reason he is expelled from the guild earlier in the story just because he didn't know the rule??? Is it because awakening and level up thing???
But worry not, there is good thing about this novel but I only found 1

  1. MC is really incompetent, usually we got competent MC but restricted by some BS reason (cannot level up, not awakening yet and some special constitution). Here the incompetent thing is persistent, the author know people don't change overnight (except by some trauma but PTSD will come first)
Conclusion; I only read at V1C3 part 5 so maybe this novel may become better later but I kinda doubt it so I drop it
