About Table of Contents


Imagine being forced to live, after death, as incorporeal bodies trapped in a vast space of nothingness for thousands of years, with nothing to do but exchanging past memories with other cohabitants (read: weirdos). Everybody wanted out, but there was no way to leave the Void...
Until one day, a young man was finally summoned, as a powerful but reluctant mentor, by a bubbly and motivated but completely naive young girl. Baiyi, finally out of the Void, was the only one who could save all of the other 32 souls from their prison and his summoner might just be The Key to their freedom.
However, Baiyi had to use the techniques and abilities the other souls had taught him throughout the years, and together with his own extensive knowledge of anime and game tropes from his shady and dangerous past as an otaku, to face the biggest challenge of them all: training the clumsy young girl he was forced to partner up with… into a competent sorcerer!

    Unfortunately, this story is nothing like Long Live Summons. It is about a news editor who became a Void Traveler, traveled in the various worlds and absorbed the memories of other void travelers (the author tells the readers these in the first two chapters, so not a spoiler). Then he is summoned by a girl in a magic school, and the story starts from there as he solves her issues. I found the writing quite bland as the fantasy setting needs one to suspend disbelief, yet the author just tells things instead of showing how the events actually happen. It is readable, but nothing really stands out compared to other fantasy/ summoning novels.

    Is it just me or am I the only one that think the red shorthaired girl in the cover is a girl? Why do I think she's a girl? Just look at her clothes and you will notice it. So, are the MC Male or Female? Regardless, the word summon in the title is enough for me to vote for it, so vote for it too everyone! Since it looks interesting. Going to give 5* for now since I look forward to the novel.

    I liked this novel. I really did. I wouldn't of minded it going premium, but immediately upon going premium, 100+ chapters that were previously open to read got placed behind spirit stones. So **** this book, **** the greed that leads to this type of ****, and **** everyone involved with making 100+ FREE FUCKING CHAPTERS GOING BEHIND A GODDAMNED PAYWALL.

    Pure trash. 30 great Voidwalkers who were legends when they were alive behaving like perverted otakus, disappointing. 15 Chapters in and there is no progress at all

    If anyone haven't noticed it yet, the background is certainly a sharingan , and by the fact that the MC looks like gaara , maybe the author is a NARUTO fan???? Hahahahha Gonna try this one.

    Just wanted to say I voted for Gaara, not the synopsis. I mean really, what can we tell from that thing. For all I know, he was a demon accidentally summoned to earth from another world and his ambitions are to develop the world's most popular cafe. Well, Daoist Jie cleared things up already, but still - 3-

    Good story overall but not worth paying for, the progression is slow and get boring fast, not good that it went premium in a day without any notice and locked free chapters behind a paywall. But that’s normal on this website.

    The first chapter can make you think that this LN is good .. But thereafter, it is a total deception. The main character is absolutely not original, the other voidwalker are just excuses to release jokes of the type "LOL, they are perverts" in each chapter (literally) and the summoner is just a girl without any specificity. .. The scenario does not advance in 43 chapters, other than the beginning, the only interesting thing we had is a fight with a rich girl (who has a 90% chance of finishing in Tsundere) and it lasted 3 chapters! !! The ambient universe is nonexistent. But reassure you, it does not matter because you will have a chapter every day :/ In short, I do not understand how it can be noted 4.2

    Would have been better if this story was an epic adventure insted of a slice of life. All that potential wasted. The perverted void walkers get annoying and I'd rather have more training and adventure then anything else. I would have preferred him to be summoned by someone who is a bit more of a genius who he trains until he gets strong enough at the end of the book to bring the voidwalkers back

    Story is slow as hell, chapter 118 and almost no progress still, every major thing that's happening so far is revolved completely around woman even major fights so far are either made by woman or ordered others to do it by women and the talk going on by mc and people in void is all random junk just to fill up the chapter and no actual number is mentioned on how many people are in void so how many people that talk so far may increase to further waste a chapters worth of a read on nonsense that is just ment to waste time for a easy buck.

    Up to chapter 33 , about 80 % of this story si about a bunch fantasy old man saying slang and cit about popolar web games and pop culture in china , 10% si about how cool the mc is, the rest is the novel, one of the worst story in QI , complete waste of time

    Unfortunatly, the author tend to spend half of each chapter having the Voidwalkers making a bunch of reference to popular games and anime, and most of the rest describing the female characters in great details (especially their legs). I'm afraid this got boring fairly quickly.

    I know this novel has received lot of negative review from many readers but i personally like this novel and give it 5 star. Well yes thr seems to be almost no story plot now and seems strange but i quite like the things that happen in this novel such as the joke they made and seems similar to a setting like Zero no Tsukaima.

    I did not know what to expect getting into reading this novel . But this really surprised me and I would like to read more of it and that is my personal opinion as a person who loves reading and will read about anything . As for the review, let's start with the technical aspects :- The translation quality is good enough and not something extraordinary There are some typos and minor errors in grammar from time to time nothing to fuss over and I am sure that the quality of language will get better with more release I really hope for more updates not just one per day It is only the beginning of this book so not a lot is made known about the story line and character development but the characters that are present give off a good vibe and can be developed more holistically I really like the male lead and the female protagonist and their relationship which appears to be that of students and teacher and also sometimes of a baka dad and of his extremely cute inocent daughter I also love the commentary from the other good walkers they acts as fanboys and girls about earth culture especially Japan It is really refreshing to read a CN without any stereotypes or discrimination against other countries or forced patriotism for the country which doesn't have any relation to the plot At present I love the world black ground and hope it gets developedand explored more
