To Hell With Being a Hero!


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

I lived like any ordinary person when a stranger suddenly approached me, “You are… a hero.”

“No, I’m not.”

“I see. You are the one we have been waiting for…”

I just told you I wasn’t though.

“How surprising. Were you aiming for this perhaps? As expected…”

This is crazy, absolutely mad.

“Praise the light!”

I am about to go insane, for real!

All those who reviewed negatively didn't really understand the story properly so I'll explain it.

The novel is slow as it focuses on Character Development, which as we can see people just want their MC to kill people. So if you like a slow read with a Main Character like Ethan in REV then you'll be fine.

This novel is not really about the mystery, but more about surmounting unsurpassable obstacles in our way to our goal. It's like One Piece in that we care about Luffy and his Crew, but what... more>> the heck is this "One Piece"?

The other part that people dislike about the novel is that the MC has a powerful backing but he can't use it at all, so he can't be a Gigachad Overlord Faceslapping Cool Ass Guy, in fact he is so weak that he can't even fight ordinary monsters.


For those who can't handle their favorite character die I suggest you stay back because there's a high chance that they will die, like 90% chance of death even if they were former heroes

Written by the author of Second Coming of Gluttony. The level of writing and translation are top notch at least for this site. The author is really good at creating mysterious vibe and we will slowly uncover the big mystery layer by layer.

The MC might be unlikable for a lot of people in the beginning but with this author, he will get a lot of character development. Like Seol Jihoo in SCOG. Just compare him like Grid who was unlikable in the beginning but has grown so much.

  • "To hell with being a hero" is not to hell with being a hero at all. Tr*sh title to lure people in.
  • Treats readers like they have mental deficiencies.
  • This whole novel is like a "no means yes" they keep saying no MC you can't, but we all know where it's going. Either that, or every single "vow" or disappearance or forceful decision by the people to "prevent" MC is just "well you'll suffer" or "well you're allergic to bananas and heaven has bananas so you can't come" basically pretend-reasons that are not reasons.
  • C**k teases the reader for chapters on end with fake depth and a billion foreshadowings without getting to the point. Imagine someone who knows a murderer goes to the police, but instead of saying the name of the murderer in <half a second, they spend 90 years talking about their favourite TV show or how much they suffered, then they die of old age before they can reveal it.
  • Waste of my f**king time scrolling through each chapter, with all the c**k teases, trying to fish out what is important information instead of tr*sh repeated delays acting as fake foreshadowing.
To summarize again:

nah, this is trying way too hard to offer zero information to make you read 300 chapters only to find out that his brother left for some inane reason,... more>> like he was fighting the evil dragon of the heavenly ten thousand an*l fists or smt.
Fake depth, basically.


MC could literally ask his parents wtf is going on but nope. Author just want the sense of "mystery" instead of just explaining shit. <<less

I'm gonna be honest, I haven't read enough to give a comprehensive review, but what I've read so far was enough to turn me off.

The MC can see ghosts? Okay cool. Heaven gets turned upside down by his arrival because he's some kind of "chosen one" or because his family is super prestigious? Sorry but that's really not my cup of tea.

To those people who rate it that low, it's really unfortunate that you dropped it when it's just getting to the good part. The true tutorial ends in chapter 95 and it's where the MC truly shines. The story slowly ramps up and would lead to a marvelous climax. Do give it a try since the author Ro Yu-Jin is also the author of Second Coming of Gluttony.

It's a shame. I continued reading this beyond chapter 5 because it was written by the author of the amazing SCOG. I'd hoped it would eventually pick up and become good. It didn't for me. Author was way too vague about a lot of things. I think he was hoping people would respond with "Oh my god, such awesome mystery! I must keep reading to find out the truth". My personal response was "I am getting repeatedly annoyed over constantly not knowing what's going on"

Hopefully the next novel will be... more>> amazing =D <<less

Nah, confusing, slow, and overly obscure plot with insufferable characters all around. Sure it's gonna get better probably, but should you need to read 100 chapters of a novel to even start making any sense? Ok then keep your secrets

The problem with this novel is the fact that the mystery is too dragged on and unnecessary. The author could've dropped in reveals that make the story more exciting and engaging, but instead chose to be as vague as possible with literally almost every story element. Sometimes even just the background of side-characters and context of side-plots are made as vague as possible by the author. Not to mention, the starter chapters of this novel are just so boring that they made me genuinely sleep several times.

I can tell that... more>> the author has no experience in writing mystery since all he does in writing this is to keep every single thing in this novel vague no matter big or small. If it wasn't for the fact that this was written by SCOG's author, I wouldn't have even bothered to read it. <<less

The first few chapters make it seem like MC is op. Even the MC starts behaving with such confidence because of how he's treated and the expectations put on him. The further the novel progresses you quickly realize that everything is worse than you thought and while the MC has many skills/gifts, its not enough.

This is a very realistic take on heroes and the idea of saving the world vs actually doing it. With a lot of comedic breaks of people completely misunderstanding the MC to an absurd level.
