I graded it Three star, because the start of the series was good BUT, a big but the storyin this books devolved in a cheap rip off of mahouka koukou no rettousei, Gakuen Toshi Asterisk and Freezing, the anime the author took inspiration from Seriously I understand that he want to send some winks to what he like, but being an author is also taking the works of other and making it your own Doing something unique is best when you write a novel so xianxia in its setting.I ll keep reading because I graded it Three star, because the start of the series was good BUT, a big but the storyin this

I like Sylvie and Tessia, though Did I really just finish this It took me three hours to read this, and that was after promising myself I d only read the first two chapters THAT is how much a page turned this is, and I mean that about the entire series so far. 4.25 Stars I m still having fun now for the school edition Here s a bunch of observations in no particular order For a book set mostly in the continent s premier magic school, there is surprisingly little education going on unless you count classroom battles as education The low key sexualization of minors is starting to bother me It s mostly implied so I m giving the author the benefit of the doubt Hopefully, the characters will be age appropriate soon enough.It s a nice change to see a school hea I m still having fun now for the

opposition.I was disappointed to see Jasmine drop out of the story entirely after being Arthur s sole companion for three years She seemed interesting King Grey has unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in world governed through martial ability However, solitude lingers closely behind those with great power Beneath the glamorous exterior of a powerful king lurks the shell of man, devoid of purpose and willReincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, the king has a second chance to relive his life Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again Review of book 1 7Book 1 This was very entertaining, and while I have read something similar before, it was an enjoyable read 4 Stars However, only two things kept it from being 5 stars First, there was no REAL conflict in this book Everything was too easy for the MC and everything was pre ordained Second, there was an initial information dump in the form of the MC reading books in a library about his new world, but after this, we do not get much detail I knew practically nothing about Review of book 1 7Book 1 This was very entertaining, and while I have read something similar before, it was an enjoyable read 4 Stars However, only two things kept it from being 5 stars First, there was no REAL conflict in this book Everything was too easy for the MC and everything was pre ordained Second, there was an initial information dump in the form of the MC reading books in a library about his new world, but after this, we do not get much detail I knew practically nothing about the world, how society works, etc Book 2 This was also entertaining, and 4 stars, kept back because the author seemed to skip over the most enjoyable parts I wanted to see the MC s first encounters, and read about his journey Instead, it kind of skips over the interesting bits to summarize a 4 year period Book 3 5 Stars The author has hit his stride You can tell he has gotten better at writing The author also shows that the MC has flaws and his character is changing You see that he is not invulnerable and can be harmed.Book 4 5 Stars In this book, the author explores the wider world a bitand you start seeing conflict on a larger scale You finally find people who are insanely strong compared to the MC and it starts exploring the history of the world.Book 5 5 Stars This is a book of training While it seems that a book focused mostly on training would be boring, the author did a good job of keeping the reader interested You start to see the book from others point of viewoften.Book 6 4 Stars This book shows that start of the true war and plot of the series It is also twice as long as normal While I normally love longer books, it almost seems as if he is padding the book 30% of the book seems to come from other s point of view While the writing was still good, I wanted to experience the world through the MC, not some random person.Book 7 4 Stars This book suffers from the same problems as the one before it It is still an enjoyable read, but now about 50% of the book is either from other s point of view, or a flashback from the MC s past life I will definitely read this series until the end However, I am no longer furiously devouring it page by page like I did before I find myself skimming the chapters on side characters and random enemies There were 3 or 4 full chapters told from an enemy s point of view that ended up being pointless I won t go into why, as that would be a spoiler Alert I hate trying to write reviews because there are really only pass fail results for me Did I make it all the way through Yes 5 stars No There would be nothing here to read In all fairness, if an author holds my attention from page one to the end, they ve done their job Anything less than 5 stars is petty criticism from someone incapable of even doing the job let alone doing a better one.So in respect for the author and their work, I am going to start pasting this along with a generic

respect for the author and their work, I am going to start pasting this along with a generic review I found somewhere This was a fun book I am glad that I read it You should try it too Now, since I have to keep explaining myself to people who don t like my reviews, I guess some clarification is in order.1 I am 100% against criticism for works of art Art is subjective, meaning reviews are irrelevant The observer s opinion is only relevant to the observer It is my belief that regardless of what others might say, I have to experience the art for myself.2 I read upwards of 20 books a month The 10 month I spend on K U, feels like I am cheating the authors But since I can t afford 20 books a month if I were to purchase them directly, all I can offer is a positive review That leads us to the final point.3 If I get to the end of a book, then it was worth my time I give those books 5 stars because it helps the author get exposure That is the only reason I write reviews at all.I understand that people are people and they are going to do what they do regardless of my stance I know the way that I review books upsets some people I am sorry they feel that way but as many have said, they will just ignore my review going forward In fact, if you made it this far through my review, you should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews here You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here.Cheers These two books 3 4 went down hill pretty fast, the MC turns into some drooling idiot that can t think and make rational decisions the only thing good about the Books is that Travis is doing the VO work view spoiler Let s boil it down what Arthur is doing most of the book, because he is not training AT ALL, it s just crap being dropped into his lap by the author 1 He is wasting time saving Tess yet AGAIN 4 times in these two books , 2 Dealing with side characters that are supposed These two books 3 4 went down hill pretty fast, the

with side characters that are supposed to mean something to the readers but do not because he spends so little time with them, very one dimensional 3 Being pointed out by another race of beings that he is insignificant in the big scheme of things 4 Dealing with Lucas and now Lucas 2.0 5 The whole supposed Cliffhanger is just down right dumb also, he defended the School from basically what was a terrorist attack The schools administration failed to defend the students, The LANCES failed to do anything but performposturing generate Lucas 2.0 for the next books annoyance and the Consul failed to do anything The power level creep of the villains vs the rest of the world is a joke, no point really if the rest of the population doesn t stand a chance Way to much in fighting, inner monologues and posturing going on Maybe they all should be wiped out for being so arrogant and stupid hide spoiler Great but not epicI enjoyed the story, however, the cliches and over the top peranalities seemed forced The flow and general out line of the story was a 7 10 Good, but not amazing Romance progression is a plus, I hate the generic mc s who never take a step past friends until like vol 15ish The paceing was great, not too rushed or too drawn out just enough to where I couldn t put down the book I enjoy this seriestha reincation novels such as Slime or Spider I do like me some gore Great but

seriestha reincation novels such as Slime or Spider I do like me some gore that actually is described instead of a one liner description Overall I would recommend this story to anyone, the tropes make me irritated sometimes Ya know a good time to get rid of trash is on a mission with limited survalence Derivative, a mediocre copy of better worksExcept for the main character Arthur, the other characters hardly have any development Well edited with fine grammar, but I felt like I had read this story a dozen times over Instead of this go read the translation of the excellent Mushoku Tensei or Clannad or read a fanfic of Fate Stay Night or Harry Potter There s a lot of stuff freely available that is much better I m no longer giving this author any of my money.
