First review :) Now to actually explain what happened. Firstly; Yes I’m adding this novel and I am participating in the event. Knowing that there is a chance; I might work on writing more then anything else. I won’t make the chapters paid; not until very later in the story. (Volume 4 or 5) Knowing that there’s a chance for adaption; I’ll make the story as best as I can. I am depending on feedback as well. Comments and Collections are okay. (As you can already tell; this story is heavily inspired from the story Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World. So please don’t point it out.) (No I’m not copying every single idea and detail from the story... nor do I want to. Now... Q and A Q: Why are the main character designs so simple? A: To answer that, well... it’s because I was the one who drawn the character designs for Damien and Teresa (Including many others.) I commissioned an artist to draw the concepts; and they have made the designs even better. But soon if I have enough money; I will hire other artists to draw the characters for me. Q: How old are you? A: I’m 16 and unemployed. I don’t even have a driver’s license yet. Maybe it’s because I’m too focused on the novel. Q: Where did you get the idea of the Soulmark? A: I got the idea from a simple mistake and line on a piece of my artwork. It was actually supposed to be a fan art of Echidna with black eyelashes; but then I thought of Akame ga’ kill and the tattoos; so I slightly moved my arm accidentally and formed an ‘S’ on her face. That’s when the idea sparked out. Q: What inspired you to continue writing? A: Those fortunes from the fortune cookies. The three fortunes were so detailed and matched to me; I never decided to throw them away. I will avoid speaking of the fortunes except this one. “Focus on your long term goal, success is soon yours.” That was the one that really motivated me. Q: Where did you get the Story Idea? A: I recently discovered Dark Souls, and I really wanted to merge colorful characters in that said world. I love isekai fantasies, so I made this. Restart from Death is from Re: Zero. Q: Is this the first story you wrote? A: No. There was another story I wrote when I was 13 years old, and... well, it was only 17 pages long. I decided to abandon it completely and start a new three years later. Q: What inspired you for the environments in this story? A: Genshin Impact, Re: Zero, Jobless Reincarnation, Konosuba and Dark Souls. Q: What device you use when writing? A: A cheap laptop that I was given back in 2020 from those stimulus checks. Q: Has a version of this story been made before? A: Yes... It’s called a Intertwined: Summoned to a Another a World. I abandoned it because Arc 1 sucked for most. I love Arc 2... it’s just, Arc 1 was downright awful in that version. That’s the reason why I made this novel. Q: What’s your favorite character? A: Teresa. The one that started it all. I want a white haired protagonist for once. That wraps it up. Thank you so much for trying this story out, and we’ll see how it goes. See you soon!

Q: Where did you get the idea for your characters? A: Most are inspired from other stories, but Damien’s design is similar to the appearance of me as an author. (Teenager.) Q: Do you plan on translating the novel? A: Maybe, If I had money. Q: When did you start? A: October 13th 2020 Q: When is your birthday? A: August 21st 2004 Getting through my Sweet 16 this year! Q: Do you plan on getting contracted and if so, when are you going to the lock the chapters? A: Around the Chapter 140-ish area. Q: How did you get these ideas? A: I just examine and look around my surroundings I guess. For example; during one morning when I was ready for the school bus; I saw that the grass is covered in frost and dandelions so... I used that idea to create a region in the story where it’s covered by a permafrost from an ancient curse. The dandelions feed off the energy of whom stumbled upon the forest, and they are creatures in disguise.
