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

After reincarnating in a different world, the great sage Ephthal spent all of his life researching magic. However, he who had aimed to reach the summit of magic, knew of the limits of his talents and fell into despair, thus closing the curtain to his lifetime.

However, 400 years later, he reincarnated for the second time and enrolled in a magic academy using the sorcery and knowledge he acquired from his previous life. As if to sneer at the state of magic that had been in decline for the past 400 years, he easily invokes legendary class magic!

With overwhelming power, the entire world will kneel before him.

I'm usually a very easily satisfied guy but.... what the hell is this?

The premise is actually good and pretty fun but as the chapters go on I get more and more annoyed

We have a dude who got reincarnated (yayy... big surprise🙄🙄) with his previous life abilities... says some big words about peering into the truth of magic...I'm actually okay with that part

What pisses me off the most is his s*upid attitude... the dude says he doesn't want attention in his current life... two sub chapters later nobody doesn't know him... more>> and he's crying out ohh this wasn't supposed to happen ohh universe why must you confound me so like a dumb sh*t he really pisses me off

He even blows off someone who really adored him and treated him as family because of a s*upid reason like it will be troublesome and he doesn't want to attract attention

If this douche didn't want attention he should have settled somewhere far away from civilization peering into his so called abyss of magic and died there.... nuff said <<less

MC is the biggest dumpster-fire of contradicting cliches: truly puts the moron in oxymoron. Wants to avoid attention but flexes on the nearest beggar; wants to live a peaceful life but dives headfirst into hell; has no talent and is incredibly inept but also one of the greatest mages. This list goes on.

It's bad to the point that I thought that there were mistranslations in the dialogue. The MC has literally no character or personality other than being "unexpected". From how he lost his temper when his "cherished child" who... more>> he mentored from young simply asks about a s*ave that they both knew were about to up and stab them in the back, or how he just watched his beloved older brother get blown to bits despite easily being able to save him, this author is either treating The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders like a checklist or is throwing darts to decide each chapter's cliche.

This is undeniably abysmal, bottom barrel, braindead, filler fodder manga that you read so you learn to appreciate better writing.

tl;dr absolute hot garbage out ur mom's ass. Honest to god just white-out all the words and it makes more sense and becomes infinitely easier to read. <<less

The translator has 4 different 'magician dies and is reincarnated in the future' works in progress. I'd say that this one's not quite as good as "Frontier Demon King" - the setup is a bit rougher, while characters are tropetastic on top of being super flat.

The prologue could have been an entire volume in an of itself - basically what Frontier Demon King seems to be doing - but it's rushed through instead. That's fine, if none of the characters introduced there are going to be sticking around, but going... more>> into chapter 1 we immediately get another tropetastic antagonist who doesn't even manage to last the entire chapter just so that we can introduce tropetastic s*avegirl harem member A.

... Actually, this story was feeling like a 4 when I just got through the prologue but the rating I want to give it just keeps on dropping as I read more segments. If you can accept that it reads a bit like a mad libs, give thanks to the editor and translator for making this a pleasant read.

Rating: Cliche Storm/10 <<less
