Synopsis

Meet Eren Elijhah Idril, the guy who just couldn't catch a break even in the afterlife. He kicks the bucket as an old, broke-down adventurer, courtesy of a not-so-friendly neighborhood monster.

Bummer, right? But hold onto your hats, 'cause that's not where his story ends.

By some crazy stroke of fate, Eren gets thrown back in time to his teenage years, back when he was just a greenhorn at Lionheart Academy, dreaming big and not a care in the world (except maybe passing his special exams as a a novice Ranker).

Now, most folks might use a second shot at life to right their wrongs, make amends, you know, the whole shebang. But not our boy Eren. Nope, he's not about to let a little thing like mortality slow him down. With a fresh start on the horizon, Eren decides to throw caution to the wind and embrace his inner rogue.

And boy, does he embrace it. From pulling off daring heists to stirring up trouble wherever he goes, Eren dives headfirst into a life of mischief and mayhem, all without batting an eyelash. No hesitation, no regrets—just pure, unadulterated chaos.

    Hi, readers. Thank you for reading or at least checking out Vile Evil Hides Under Veil. It's about the main lead who died with a lot of regrets and decides not to have them when he is given a second chance. It's a typical fantasy work with a typical fantasy setting but with an atypical level of world details usually not found in other novels. Although there will be a larger plot at play in the background, it will be filled with fun moments. It'll be a pun-riddled, fun-filled, troupe-busting, and fantasy-fulfilling ride meant for mature audiences. A few FAQs: 1) System? No 2) Relation to Anime Eren? Almost none. 3) Relations with Female Leads? Intimate with multiple women without marrying them. 4) OP MC? No 5) Edgelord MC? No 6) Evil MC? Duh! 7) Cliched time travel theme? Yes 8) Cliched plot? No 9) Young Master Troupes? Almost none 10) Weak to strong progression? Yes 11) $mut novel? Not really. Sparsely included as a way to highlight Eren’s journey on the path of seven sins. 12) Info-dumps? Optimally placed and Incorporated into chars' dialogues at the start and mostly as a third person POV later on. Dialogues become more concise after chapter 125. 13) Slow burn? Kinda yeah. But not really if you like the storyline to make sense with in-depth details. 14) Daily schedule? 2 chapters/day + Bonus release 15) Is this novel worth reading? Yes 16) Replies in memes? Memes are justice! You can open up the novel’s auxiliary volume and read the Author's Review for more in-depth details. It is recommended that you do that. But can be skipped if you have your queries answered in the FAQs above. Read the FAQs and author review in the auxiliary volume before raising a query That's it. Happy reading! ;)

    One of the rare works that has motivated me to gift the author. Even for readers that are not a fan of the 18+ sections, those readers could skip that content and enjoy the novel regardless. The world building as a whole is very well done, with good pacing and connections with past chapters noted. Grayback has me compulsively checking my phone for new updates like an addict 😂

    i rarely write reviews for novels but i think i have invested for too much time and money in this novel not to write one, not sure why u are here but the fact that you find yourself here means the book is calling you and you should give it a try you will not regret it, writing, story, characters, pacing, mystery and everything you can think of is done right( yes im biased but im not lying) i really do believe this book far exceeded the qualifications to stand in the top 5 but i guess people don’t want a read a story with a mc that isn’t brain dead and can actually make good decisions for themselves. some may find the first 50ish chapters annoying due to how MC perceives and treats the world around him but he does grow to accept his pass and starts to live more in the present than in the past, i still don’t understand how some people find it annoying but i personally think it’s done and that’s just one of many character growth moments i don’t want to spoil anything cuz if i could i would erase my memories and reread story 🤷🏾‍♂️

    What can I say man. This novel is awesome. Give this novel a try you won't regret it. Writing Quality: Awesome, with all of those unreadable novels we are getting with the notes 'English ain't my first language', this right here is a treasure (Minor typos here and there, author is only a human). Stability of Updates: Can't say much since I binged 100 chapters at once so no idea about it, but author promises regular releases. I am gonna believe that. Story Development: We have a good storyline going here, even with the now common plot being used author excuted it in his own way making something new(good) out of it. Character Design: Hmmm....... I think this is 'The Best Point' of this novel. Awesome character designs and Interactions according to me. Mind it not all people would agree to this sentiment but I feel it to be correct. World Building: Author is drawing a world for us while unfolding his novel, it gives us knowledge about the world and its working as we delve deeper into the story. Hope this one ain't cen.sored coz this one doesn't have even one curse word

    cap 90 drop sorry, this novel started very good with mc evil like fang yuan RI, but only first arc. in second arc when mc go for academy, in my opnion the author got lost. The mc have 2 choices, solo or in group, and chose the last one. In this, the same kind of boring novel that the mc stays with several people / friends, helping them, losing the true essence of an evil mc in his journey that only cares about himself and does anything to achieve his goals.

    I always give detailed reviews. But for this novel, I wanted to make an exception. It is that good, and has a huge potential. Now, I'll talk about it one pointer at a time. nothing to complain when it comes to writing quality. i know that grammatical errors and glaring typos can affect a reader's experience. this didn't happen with me for this novel. story development is solid and firm. but it hasn't progressed much. as I'm writing this review, the novel is 40 chapters deep. the mmc still hasn't left what we call the newbie zone. I see that the writer is talking about starting a new arc. hope that changes this thing. we want the mc to explore the world some more. the character design is just like story dev. it is nuanced and in depth. and so far, every character has been given a particular shade. but since mc hasn't left the beginners area, there aren't many characters to talk about. till now I can only remember the names of Eren, Nina, Dom, and Lin. it's not a bad thing per se. but we already know so much about these characters now. it's about time the story introduces some more chars. updating so far has been stellar. i see the release rate of 23 chapters/week as I'm writing the novel. world background is intriguing. i like that the author has kept things straightforward. we still don't know the exact power structure as of now. but i for one am not in a hurry. wishing the author all the best and may this review help you and your novel grow further [img=update][img=coins][img=fp][img=exp][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend]

    This novel is awesome. I got totally addicted to it from the start and bought the max privilege to read them all. My only complaint is that I’m caught up even though it has a great release rate. I guess reading is faster that writing 😢 lol. But seriously, no complaints; story progresses at a good pace, like the concept/world build so far, great characters. ** I really appreciate the notes at the end that refer back to when things happened in previous chapters. Makes me feel that the author pays extra care to remember all the details, and not just make things up for the story to forget them a few chapters later. (Not that I needed them since I read it so fast 🤣, but maybe in the future I will need them)

    Characters are really well developed and realistic. His friends act like their ages, and you can see him act like a man who had lived a terrible life. The world and magic is really interesting, the writing is very good with few mistakes, and it’s one of the first novels I’ve seen that isn’t forcing things to occur. You can tell something is going to happen dozens of chapters in advance due to how the characters act, which is really cool. This is one of my favorite novels on this site, and I’m putting it up there with how much I enjoy Authors POV and My Three Vamp Wives, which are the two novels I’m heavily supporting. Amazing novel, and I hope it keeps being updated!

    Review up to around #30. Grammar and spelling are well above average, the story is a slow burn but is slowly progressing at a steady pace, plenty of character development... However... the biggest issue for me is the exposition dumps, monologuing, and unnatural conversations. For example, early on an entire chapter is dedicated to a exposition dump on beasts, which could have been edited down considerably to something much more concise, or even better, have the information naturally dispersed throughout the story. Characters frequently exposition dump or explain things in excruciating detail, spanning multiple long paragraphs without pause, often repeating the same concept multiple times. This makes many conversations feel more like a lecture than a natural conversation. The author could remedy this by having the other characters in the scene interact more, asking questions, pondering on the information provided, or have the characters physically move in the scene.

    While I can go on about alot in this novel as all aspects of this novel are above average. The world design is your classic fantasy adventure type it's solid but not expectinal and will act as a good foundation to the truely best part about this novel. The plot so far is a perfect mix of short term, medium term and long term plot lines. There's lines I can see coming to a close in 20 chapters while there's an over arcing plot line that's far into the future while right now it's hidden in mystery parts do get exposed within short term plot lines that other novels would treat as a separate plot line with no interaction. While I won't comment on each arc due to spoliers they are well thought out and executed. This is exactly what you want to see from a long term perspective this novel will happily go to 1000 chapters plus. The character design and development is the standout feature in the first 200 chapters some of the best I've seen it would be able to turn a novel that is weak in other areas into a good novel. The MC his personality is some of the finest I've seen to the level I assume its been all pre planned before the novel was even started. The MC isn't OP his major advantage is his experience and all the other reborn advantages of which the MC uses them all to his advantage. But that also comes with flaws the MC isn't reborn and is somehow naive again. He is mentally scared which leads to problems where he is over zealous with his pre rebirth enemy's to the level where he can cause future problems to himself not because he's dumb or this is just the way it is. It's because his past experiences and the imprint it's left on him he can't control his response it's carthic to him. This novel is worth a read based on the MC alone but the other areas are just as strong.

    A follow-up review after 75 chapters of the novel: the minus points- author be has dropped his release rate. it is still better than what's considered as slow release novels. but compared to his previous speed, author has slowed down considerably. and no fight scene or "cultured" scene has taken place in the second arc, even after so many chapters are released. the plus points: it is still a bit slow paced for my taste. But now I've accepted that author takes his time painting a detailed picture of the scenes that are getting talked about. The writing quality and and world detailing haven't been dropped and show signs of even more improvements. Eren's character is still focusing on what's best for him at any time or scene. He is staying true to what he said he'd do after entering the academy. after everything that's been said, i really like this novel. Eren might not b the most lovable mc out there but he grows on u. and all his decisions reek of his real mental age. hoping the novel stays true to it's goal and doesn't make mc a wu*s or just plain idiot in doing about things!

    Review after 80 chapters into the storyline! The novel has outperformed in most segments so far. It also has a few shortcomings. I'm assuming that the new readers must have seen the book tags, so I'll not talk about mc's antiheroism, his views and all that. I'll mention everything that is apart from antiheroism below so that potential readers can decide better wether they want to invest time in this work or not. Shortcomings 1) Slow burn: the storyline takes it's time to unfold. I don't feel it to be slow paced but just detail oriented. Others might not feel the same tho. 2) Limited fight scenes- again not an issue for me but most readers would prefer the novel to change this aspect about itself the most. but author has hinted about something called ranking war, which will appear in the upcoming chapters. Hopefully, the figh scene seeking audience can be pacified whenever that plot starts. 3) lack of culture plot- this is a problem for me as well. i don't like plots without any stories behind them. but the novel has left it's culture plot fans high and dry after chapter 53. 4) TMI- too much information is observed to being given seldomly in this novel. building a lore is fine. but sometimes the information needs to be introduced at the right time for it to make sense and have maximum impact. thankfully, i only observed two three such instances. so till now it's no biggie. hope author san takes heed from this comment. it'll definitely benefit him as well as us the readers. 5) comic relief has dropped down- volume one had a lot of comic relief moments that are lacking in the second volume. Now the plus points 1) writing quality- top-notch from my perspective. English is not my first language, so I might glide over a few obvious grammatical errors. But if there are errors, I can't spot most of them. There are sporadic cases of name swap maybe. But it should be counted as an ATD error, not a writing quality one. Solid 5/5 2) Story dev- author has placed heavy importance on the story development of the novel. He has made an intricate world with it's own set of laws and culture, which is not all that different from what we can relate to. I've gone through the entire ranking system and it's in depth and intriguing. But maybe author san needs to dial down on this aspect to focus on making the plot a bit fast paced for it's current and upcoming audience. 4/5 3) Character Design- The characters have enough info about them to make us readers imagine them into almost tangible personalities in our heads. author had only focused on the mc in the first volume, but thankfully he has started exploring the niche characteristics of other side characters. The interactions among them are driven by logic and rationality. They don't sound dummy and synthetic like most wuxia novels. Plus the in-novel characters don't go out of characters, ever. So that's a relief one seldom finds in newly published works. All in: 5/5 4) Updating stability: the novel is barely a month old and it has 80+ chapters as of now. And this is after the author declared that he has dropped his speed to focus on making the story plothole proof in one of his notes. So obviously its a 5/5 from me. 5) World background- most of the shortcomings I've enlisted above are from this segment. But their instances are rare and ignorable. Plus, I've read the entire ranking/cultivation chart of the novel. Least to say, it is intriguing. 4/5 In short, Vile Evil has all the qualities in it to break it big. It's a treat for the readers of antihero works. Hope the novel goes pro so that readers can expect a consistent release from the author. I think I'm forgetting something else to add, but whatever! Wishing all the best to the author.

    Hey this novel is very good, and I expect many things from it. I hope that we’ll be able to continue reading it and it won’t get dropped. I feel that this novel has much potential to be realised and hope that it does get realised. This is one those hidden gems. After all not everyone start reading a novel in it’s starting phase. It’s because nobody if it’ll be worth their time or because it might get dropped any moment due to author’s whims. After all, people wouldn’t how serious is author with his work, or even when they sometimes feel that the author might be an immature writer. ————————————————————————————————— Believe me when I say this that this novel is one with potential to reach the ranking board of webnovel. Though, I might be wrong. But I still believe in what I stated. I found this gem 💎 on the encouraging novel section of the homepage of webnovel.

    This is an antihero novel. so future readers need to take that into consideration before judging the MC's actions in this novel. what i liked: every action mc takes has a valid reason behind it. the actions might be cruel, heartless, and deceptive in nature. but they always have their reasons. and those reasons too are based on sound logic and information available for the mc at the time. what can be improved: the background story sometimes feels like it is getting stretched. we don't need reasons all the time. sometimes they can be just assumed by the readers. that's it. this novel has become my new fev after Dual Cultivation for 'culture' story with plot [img=update][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend]

    great story, very good concept for this world but unfortunately I will have to stop, the MC's actions are completely clueless and ridiculous, I understand your an anti-hero tag but your actions are completely unreasonable, he knew where the beast was but killed those two for no reason among other occasions throughout history. but your work is well written and well thought out and I wish you success.
