A true gem. MC gets teleported to the moon by a demonic mage. The mage tells him that he was simply unlucky and that he will be used as a reincarnation vessel if the mage dies in the upcoming fight.

    Also, please read "Endless path infinite cosmos" on webnovels, and "Mother of learning" on any platform. The latter especially is gold.
