Award-winning rock musician Kris Maya had just held a ground-breaking concert, with an arena packed with his most die-hard fans. His songs that contemplated the human condition: desires, love, pain, loss, fantasy and reality, and his philosophy towards life have garnered a great number of people to follow his every move and as he strummed the last chord that signaled the end of his song, he stumbled in pain and collapsed.

With a smile, he closed his eyes on the curtains of his final concert in this life. As the applause of his show turned to become murmurs of worry and disbelief, he was happy and excited. Still, he felt that he was ready and he was anticipating his return to the world where all his past mistakes left a grueling and bloody mark on its history.

This world that he filled with his music had taught him many lessons.

In Earth, the power of music served as his gateway to learning.

When he returns to his former world, his overwhelming power of magic will teach others the same lessons; the bloodshed being the only difference.

It was now time to pay it forward.

A very well written novel so far. Your style and grammar are almost perfect, sometimes you can get lost when reading(a little too much POV change) and little to none grammar mistakes. It is good to have a different POV, but not in the middle of a fight in my opinion. Consider doing different POV at the end or start of a fight. Story got 4 stars because i think it must have more world lore before it can be 5. And characters are good. A little more about them(their history) and you will get 5 stars. You can have a side story to explain lore and character back story for example. Those are my suggestions for you to improve. So overall a grate pice of work.

Not very good at doing reviews (well, at least in english) so I will make it pretty simple.
I really like the mc and the rest of the characters who have their POV.
The grammar is pretty good and I have seen little mistakes so far.
The story so far is very good and I like where is it going.
Also I really love the focus you give to character interactions and their POV.
You deserve the 5 stars.

Give it a try. A decent story if you like it's genre (Japanese Light Novel).

First sorry for my bad english, it aint my native languague.

My hobby is reading, so I read a lot. I'm a lawyer (25 years old) so even in my profession I read a lot. To judge a novel is a tricky thing because the values you judge it change from person to person.

I never liked the 5 star rating since you can't judge everything by the same standards. This story fits a specific genre: The Light Novel (the Japanese LN) if you're into that kind of books you'll find this story enjoyable. I have judge it from my enjoyment factors.

If you want a seriuos novel with great worldbuilding, believable characters, and a great plot you wont find this here. (I suggest you read the likes of Brandon Sanderson "Mistborn" series, Mark Lawrence "The Red Queen's War" series, Patrick Rothfuss "The Kingkiller Chronicle" just to name a few. The are plenty of great authors out there.)

If you like more light hearted stories, that are not so complex, and that are like a "JapaneseLN" or kinda like a "WuxiaNovel". You know with an OP protagonist and all there thropes, you will find this story good.

Give the story a try. At least a few chapters, then decide for yourself if you liked it or not.

Kudos to the author and I hope he/she keeps writing. It has its flaws, but this is a enjoyable read nonetheless.

--"SPOILER ALERT"-- Example why I said that this story is inside the "JapaneseLN" genre:

--OP MC gets late to the entrance exam and because of DeusExMachina moment, he doesn't enter the Univ. Now the OP MC that basically could do "ANYTHING" (you know he is OP, he pretty much can kill anything, and do whatever he wants in the world) like going to the director and show him how OP he is, yet he chosses to NOT USE HIS POWERS because you know... morals and stuff. Later in the same chapter he decides to USE HIS POWERS (a hipocrite if you ask me) TO IMPRESS THE ROYALTY, SO THEY CAN RECOMMEND HIM TO GET INTO THE MAGICAL UNIVERSITY--

This is a amazing book it is what I look for through hundreds of books on this site. You will laugh with the main protagonist you will feel sadness when he does it is a story that makes you forget that you are reading a book and not feeling it yourself. I'm making this review at 21 chapters and I already feel this book should be in the top 10 books that I have ever read including other royal road, wuxia novels and complete books I have purchased at the local book stores. Ty antibv for this story and you made my day reading your book.

I like the unique way of reincarnation, which allows the character to both have strong magic (without some ridiculous blessing or luck) and modern knowledge and ideals. And it's always easier to make some relevant jokes when the character isn't confined to a purely fantasy setting.

The general idea behind the plot is not that clear yet but with the indications we have and the title I'm very much anticipating where this is heading.

The grammar is very good, I have basically nothing to complain about expect for a single really stupid mistake. Namely the repeating of a sentence.

Namely the repeating of a sentence. It occurs several times and is a really annoying and yet so easily avoided problem, especially with the great grammar overall I can't understand how this happens since a simple rereading of the text shpuld prevent this.

the story is like cousin of "Forgotten Conqueror"

the character developing is great,there are a lot of meanfull thing for the mc to learn and to change from his old evil power hungry self here,and one good point is the mc isn't perfect,although he is OP ,but for other part he is not the all knowing thing here,and he do make a mistake,but at least he is not a idiot and resposible for his action ,which is make the story feel more believe and feel more sad in the other part like when he have to left the earth to go back his old world

A very recommended read!!

Overall/ TLDR 5/5 :

As somebody with a love for fantasy this is a must read. Something the author does especially well is different points of view!

Style 5/5:

The style is focused on the perceptions the characters have of each other and the development of these. By using different povs to describe the scenes the theme/feeling of each scene is transmitted very well.

Story Score 5/5 :

If you like stories with a reincarnated protagonist who isnt brushing his past of, but bearing a burden, learning from it and adapting to his new life this is definitly a great story. Similiar to forgotten Conquerer or elemental god. The magic system also seems quite interesting and especially interacting. ( not just : fireball, but theoretical thinking behind magic usage and combination of them)

Grammar Score 5/5:

dont have much to say here. I think its perfect, but it should be noted that english is not my first language.

Character score 5/5:

This is where I think the story really shines. The characters are interesting and interacting well, especially though, already mentioned povs.

Good novel but is not for me

It's a nice novel, I liked. However, I'll drop cuz I don't like this novel type. I would like that the MC killed everyone for revenge, and build a empire, but... it's be impossible, the MC is OP, and be boring. So, for novel construction is necessary that has developed such. Intermediating the world and caring  the people for a good purpose.

Apart from a few confusing POV changes here and there, I think its pretty well written
