A loser with no attachment to his old life gets summoned to another world to be its hero--and then is betrayed, realizing only at the end how badly his friends in this new world had been treated by the 'allies' that were around him at the end. He then awakens as a six-year-old, ten years before the summoning.
Why's he a loser with no attachments? Because back on Earth his family and allies were peeled away in a succession of accidents, murder, and coercion. An elite life of a "young lord" had been taken away from him, and he didn't even know it.
Why not take him only back to the time of his summoning? Because he wasn't that OP--as a hero he was a meathead, because a sword was good enough for the Demon King's army. The humans that summoned him would see through him, see that that he hated them, and then would've just overpowered him with magic and delayed their plans.
The MC needs to unfuck his past, get re-summoned to be a hero, and then protect his friends in the new world while pretending to go along with people he knows will betray him after he succeeds in what he knows to be an unjust war. I like how the author is taking the MC's problems seriously.
Fifth stars are reserved for a beastgirl waifu. An elf can come too.
Complaints you'll have/notice:
1. elite six-year-olds are smart and act like adults. The MC in particular has to re-learn acting like a brat. Personally I think that intelligence varies a lot more between people than between ages (stupid people are stupid their whole lives; smart people are smart their whole lives) and aren't bothered by this, but lots of people are.
2. at C101, all chapters but the first few have taken place in the 'past', and there's been only one two-year time skip. You're not going to see a beastgirl waifu for a while. IMO, whether this is bad or good depends ultimately on how long the story is. Ultimately the story may be 10% MILFs-from-the-past and 90% beastgirl-waifus. It's too early to be unhappy with the story. If you're bored by the MILFs, then you're just not compatible with this author and shouldn't expect a setting change to fix that.
I will probably update this review when the story is progressed
This is good work. The story is amazingly build with fact and answer of some of the previous question that could have been raised. The MC look like a one sided character in the begining but the author did an amazing work in puting firstfruits since the begining that would allow to lead in changing his personality, why he react like he would. For the writing quality I gave 5 stars since I didn't find any glaring grammatical error. 4 stars for update stabilty since it stay mostly consistent except for some unexpected happening ( 5 star would be the work of a robot or a superior A.I 😀). 4.2star for story development even though , like some previous review said, the synopsis doesn't matches the actual arcs of the story BUT THE AUTHOR ALREADY EXPLAINED HIMSELF WHY IT WAS LIKE THIS!! So some review who blame this aren't accurate. -An example would be people in my native country who systematically dock points on games that aren't in the country languages like the Yakuza series (some gave 0 because it was only for " english" people"). 3.5-4 stars for chara development: MC and his relatives are described quite well but it falls a bit short for some of the antagonists or distant related
3 stars for world background since the modern world is described but not so much. Morover the fantasy world hasn't been explored has of the current chapters
Truthfully a good story that could potentially become amazing, even though there is some flaws. But as sole said "error is human"
To those looking for a quick read/ fix, I do not recommend this novel. Why? Because this is a novel that encourages readers to think about some matters themselves. (The author has already confirmed this.) This novel starts out slow and you would probably be one of those complaining at the early chapters and dropping this if you're looking for a complete MC right at the very start.
Even the simplest of lines delivered in the early chapters come to bite you if you haven't realized it in the later chapters or volumes. I think that is what I like most about this novel.
If you don't want a simple-minded MC that never changes, then this is the novel for you. I've seen a lot of people in the comments section bashing the author about how much of an ass the MC is towards people but it was clearly said that he had been forced to spend an unspecified amount of time in the dark void as he watched his life pass by him to the point that he had memorized the people and suspected everyone of acting against him. Anyone with a decent mental capacity can figure out that he was unexpectedly put in his 6 year old self as a damaged, paranoid person. That is where it all begins.
Here is a novel that focuses on people/ characters rather than just killing off people. You can read how the MC grows and changes from a broken person with PTSD and turns into a calculative protagonist rather than the previous hotblooded version of himself.
Of course, this novel is by no means perfect. As it starts from the MC reverting to his 6 year-old self, many might question the maturity of the people in his age group. I myself did not mind it much as I saw it as them growing up in such an 'elitist?' environment that they were portrayed to act in such ways. The updates were also unstable at some point.
Also kudos to the Author for being easy to talk to in the discord channel. I've seen many readers' inquiries and doubts answered in there.
Dang Fine story . . . but Not updated often enough ::( Loved the start but then it seams like the author / translator got real life problems and disappeared for quite some time , Hopefully they will return to once a week or more hint hint
Overall this novel is great, from the idea up until execution. for me, the only downside is the ages of the characters do not match their actions. like how a 7 yr old kid side character knows about schemes and other advanced stuff. Even if you put an excuse that these characters are geniuses, but still their ages don't match their actions.
Cheio de spam dando nota 5. O mc é convocado como herói?Ok. É meio idiota? Ok. É traido? ok. Volta para o passado? Ok. Por que não ler? O mc volta para o corpo com 6 anos de idade mas não sabe agir como uma criança. Como que uma criança que perdeu a memória pode fazer o trabalho de um SEO de uma empresa?Não faz sentido.
Most stories start off well enough and yet after falling into a rut of cliches and overused ideas, they become an absolute pain to read. On the opposing side, Edea, while starting with a similar reincarnation trope, does it amazingly well; a gripping story which just gets even better.
This story was one of my first reincarnation novels, and it proves a story can be great without relying on the typical, ~~~im useless but i became op and I saved a beast girl who's also a princess, holy maiden, etc etc~~~ anime protagonist cr*p.
Edea has a great conspiracy/mystery plot, with an additional blend of real life and male fantasy in just the right amounts. Interesting side characters which still get enough 'screen time' further into the story, rather than getting sidelined (apart from Mei midway through, who doesn't seem as important as initially portrayed). Plus to that the well timed cliffhangers, the story is near perfect.
Kudos to Ruruci for writing one of my favorite webnovels, hope to see this story to the end.

Shameless Author here, with a shameless review.
I wrote a novel recently, which is Call of Ring. It was my very first attempt at writing, and there may be some mistakes and errors in it, but I still feel extremely proud of it and enjoy it thoroughly.
Please give my story a try and leave some comments for me. Thank you!
Hey there! Here are some web novel recommendations for whom share the same taste with me. If you like this story, my recommendations are worth a try!
I like a lot of things about this, but i just cant find myself to read it. no matter how hard i try, i cant enjoy the pace at which it flows when readin. Also, one thing that confuses me is why it has the gender bender tag when as far as i can tell the mc doesnt get gender bended at all? Oh and apparently it takes Fucking forever for it to finally get to the fantasy part after he gets reborn, which is what i was expecting to read after reading the synopsis only to be dissapointed that theres a ton of other stuff i have to sit through even though thats not what got me interested in reading the story originally. i dont hate this story at all, and wish i could enjoy it, but its very confusing and unsatisfying in many places despite the sheer amount of detail the author has put into it which totally gets my respect.
Good day for writing! If you wanted to see whether you can get paid by distributing the current work or getting financial support by writing new work, you might want to contact email@example.com. A brief introduction, some sample charpters or links will be appriciated when reaching out.
Hey any chance for more chapters per month love the book but the time I have to wait is insane by the time you release a chapter I have to go back and reread a few old chapters to make sure I understand what's going on.
The story is about 6 years old being prodigies. 6 to 8 yrs old kid appearing like cabbages. Showing their intellect and skill this is like every kid here is on detective conan level with how sharp they are . While the adults are all dumb. Still a good read to past time.
