"This world is truly...boring." [HIATUS: OVER. DAILY UPDATES] The Mage King, overthrown and killed by his own people, escaped via one last spell. Reincarnated in the body of a weak baby, he sets off to conquer the world once more. Except somehow, he has been reincarnated into a completely different world. A world with no mages...aside from him. What is the point in ruling such a boring world? He might as well reincarnate again. Until the TV catches his eye, and he sees a certain animation from a far east Asian country... Maybe...maybe I can do something here. Maybe in this world without mages, a mage is what is needed to spice things up a little. Maybe this boring world needs...a Demon Lord to rule it from the shadows. If this world isn't interesting enough, then I'll force it to change with my own hands! "A Demon Lord needs henchmen, so I will create my own!" "I also Heroes to fight against, so let's make those as well!" "Hmmmm...I like System novels, let's give a Hero a Gamer system!" "I also like superheroes and romances, let's create some superheroes and make them fall in love!" "What's this? A thriller? Hmmm...maybe I can make something like this too..." Lots of LGBT issues in here. If you can't handle gay, this is probably not your story Cover was drawn by @yikes-psychic-pen, go check her out at https://yikes-psychic-pen.tumblr.com/

Alright, this novel is gutsy and ambitious. Three entirely different storylines of different genres meshed together incredibly well using that one demon lord. Seriously, I was scared for this one. I thought the stories would clash, and that there would be tonal clashes and clashes for which story takes the spotlight. But this goddamned author pulled it off. And he pulled it off to an extent I've seriously only seen in published books. Alright, yeah, so if you, the person reading the review, hasn't cought on to the fact that I love this book and that this is just going to be me gushing all over it, then let me make it clear. I LOVE this book. The writing is phenomenal. It's set on Earth and I'd say it's a pretty solid planet as far as word building goes. It seems to be very well researched. I can't elaborate on this point really because I haven't had much experience with the character and location and customs settings present in this book, and as a typical Webnovel reader I'm too lazy to cross reference it against stuff, but yeah it feels really well researched. The writing style is great. The flow and pace just fits the story like a glove. It's introspective in the best of ways. It's just great, yeah? There's some occasional spelling issues I've come across but c'mon, that's still leagues better than any Webnovel I've seen on here. The characters oooh boy the characters I love em to bits. Character development and growth is on point. Characters are all hella likable. They are characteristic of how much effort went into this book and how much I love it. Alright, I'll close this off by saying a couple more things sike this brain isn't going to let me stop gushing so soon- a) It's great. b) I love it. c) Yes it does have quite a bit of LGBTQ rep and boy do the characters gain depth due to the societal impacts of that, but it's not the focus of the book. d) I need more chapters e) Hey almost daily uploads would you look at that thank you author f) I have no clue why I'm still doing this. 7) I will not apologise for any time wasted on reading this 'review'


Excellent writing skills but too lgbt for me. There are obvious parallels between the main character and the reader in how he feels and how we are supposed to. Many times the mc posed valid reasoning that made me question my discomfort at the ever increasing focus on lgbt issues. Maybe I'm reading too much into it but it felt like the mc was a strawman for the reader and his assistant trying to push lgbt stories to him is the author trying to tell me that the characters doesn't have to be like me for me to enjoy the read. Well it didn't work and I'm dropping the novel, but credit where credit is due if you don't mind the anti-corporate agenda (which I don't) and the large focus on lgbt issues (which I do) then it's an excellent novel.


Its a good story. I personally like the gamer and the MCs stories the most. All the other plots seem to be pushing LGBT views down my throat though. Like one story arc happens then we switch over to the MC and get his take on the surprise reveal of the gay couple and the trans person. Where he plays the straight white male, and then all of a sudden his female assistant (which was purposely made to be more competent than him) starts making excuses for her candidates. Ending with the MC being subtly manipulate into changing his straight views on the sexes and into this female leads more gender neutral ones. At this point I dropped the story. I didn't want to read something where there isn't a single person I can relate to. And that the only straight male (MC), was only created to play the fool in this story. The constant POV switches didn't help either.


Pretty interesting story so far. By mixing several types of anime together, the author manage to create this unique novel. Several POVs allows reader to see the situations more clearly and make this story more lively. I can only say that I really envy that assistants girl. She’s really lucky to get that job.

For anyone that reads this know that this is amazing, very good pacing, great character interactions and natural development of relationships. A lot of writing techniques that can be copied, I mean learned from this

I’ve read until about chapter 30. So not especially far. As the author warned, if you can’t handle LGBT, you won’t want to stick around. 30 is a point in the story where the focus seems to be more on LGBT issues than the story. I can handle, and even like stories with Yuri. Yaoi is out of my comfort zone, and that’s where I have to draw the line. The writing (w/o the LGBT agenda) is top quality, and if you can push past that, it is a great book. Sad to say that I won’t be continuing though.


Honestly one of the best written things on the site ive seen. The plot development, quality of writing, and obvious experience with human interaction (which sadly most who write on here dont have) all make it amazing. Personally, i prefer to read things that are either neutral in their views, with some LGBTQ+ relationships and some not, or just no relationships at all, as when i and many other readers come onto the site they are mainly looking for a good read that is usually action packed, or has an amazing plot like this one. The only reason i will not continue reading this is because of the way i choose to read. I try to stay away from social/societal issues when reading because they are what are making me want to read in the first place. As of chapter 30, which is what ive read up to, there has been mostly no issues being brought up, but as the story started getting more fleshed out the more i realized one of the main topics that would be discussed and very prevalent would be the opinions people have on the lgbt community. An example of a story that is similar to this in terms of how fleshed out the story is, and explanations would be Zombie Knight. If you have time i would really you read a bit of it as it would greatly improve the already amazing story you have created. Overall a 5, but will not be reading as it will probably just take a toll on my mind i dont currently need or want.


To everyone who wants to turn away because of the tag, grow a pair. The only thing “not normal” about this book is how amazing this author is. Three different stories from different backgrounds put together in a way that blew my mind. Any SINGLE one of the perspectives could be a sold on Amazon for $30, minimum. Just try the book, you wont regret it.


Incredibly fun and creative story about an otaku mage and his assistance trying to have fun by making the world they are so bored with feel more like an anime plot. The writing is absurdly enjoyable with every character being extremely likable which makes you want to follow them and see what they are up to. Highly recommend it!!!


Story has great potential but Author is clearly lacking in storytelling. Our Mc is starting three storyline together which got so confusing at a time that I had to dropped it.


When I read in the synopsis "If you can't handle gay..." I took that as a challenge, Aside from being provoked to reading the story was actually pretty good. Keep up the good work


A unique story that combines so many genres of light novels into one essential read. I got hooked the moment I read the synopsis. The author's ability to bring the cast to life along with their understanding of varying cultures created a living and breathing world.


Everything you ever wanted to read is here: Evil Demon Lord Main Character that is controlling everything behind the scenes... What more could you ask for if you’re into that kind of stuff?


Loved literally everything about this! SOOOOO GOOOD! You'd think that a story this good doesn't exist, BUT IT DOES!!! READ IT READ IT READ IT NOOOOO***WW!!!!!!


one of the best novels on this site. Unique and ambitious. Very well written. I think that the only reason it hasn't risen to the top is that it touches LGTB themes, and unfortunately many readers are very closeminded.



I juzt started this book, first chapter really grips the reader, and makes the reader curious to what is coming next. Leaves you wantimg more. powerful.
