Like Overlord, more bones and misunderstandings!

Overall this has been a fine story, though i coulnt help but to compare it to Overlord, with this story using many elements from there. This story is also somewhat cliched in the same ways as Overlord, but i dont necessarily consider that a bad thing.

This story starts in the Holy Undead Kingdom of Deagoth, where the Holy Witch King has been entombed for a thousand years. Then he reawakens, but not all is as it seems to be, for the Holy Witch King is not the person he was once, a reincarnee from Earth took his place and is put in his spot, without knowing anything.

The MC bluffs his way through the problems of his kingdom, and like Overlord, it somehow succeeds. One thing i do like about him, is that he does take action himself, even if he is a sort of coward on the inside, also expect him to do some references to other media in this story.

The other characters are fine, but i feel like they could be developed even more, to feel more real.

Sadly enough, grammar is a major problem in this story, with there being wrongly used tenses, many typo's and simple grammatical mistakes. I have to recommend the author to edit the story, or get someone to help him, it would improve the readablity of this story so much.

Currently a fast release speed, so no problems on that front.

This story is a fun, enjoyable read, even with its flaws. Recommend for anyone who likes a ton of misunderstandings, or just wants to read a story like Overlord.

Good, but could be better.

This is a fairly entertaining story, though if you don't like overpowered MC's you definitely don't want to read this, because the main character has things come rather easily to him and people are constantly misunderstanding things in his favor. Still, while I typically get annoyed by that, this story does it in a humorous enough fashion that I'm more amused than annoyed. The characters all feel fairly distinct and unique, and the entire undead society is rather fascinating to read about, the author has definitely put a bit of thought into how his world works. My main gripe with the story is that the editing is brutally poor. Constantly uses the wrong words in a sentence, like comfirmable instead of comfortable, just, all the time. Even aside from using the wrong word, the phrasing is often really awkward and hard to parse at times. It's unfortunate, I really enjoy the characters and story, but it's dragged down by the presentation.

  1. Highly interesting, even for as early as it is. A story of a far more ruthless man with modern knowledge being put into the position of a benevolent leader in a cultivation world as an undead. Seems to update frequently. Worth taking a look at, at the very least.

Edit: Now, later in the story, some developments have made this both more and less interesting. Although a humorous point worthy of note is the zombie apocalypse seemingly burgeoning in a world already ruled by the undead.

As of chapter 28, I can sincerely say that not only is this novel well written, there is also barely ANY grammatical and for one such as myself nothing is more off putting than an error pervaded story.

The MC is quite likeable?

One thing of note (to the credit of the author) is that most of the characters so far are well fleshed out (with political undercurrents, individual motives and all that, I do wonder though, How do skeletons bone? Do they even bone?) and several incidents hints to a quite exciting world.

Should the novel deliver on the promise of these aforementioned hints this book will definitely gain the recognition it will deserve.

AND of course the update speed is not too bad Ai?

Kudos to the author and I am definitely looking forward to more.

Nihilism turned fun

Tldr: Guy reincarnated as lich-pope. Guy gets chick, kills half of parliament and kicks mafia posterior. 

Decent story without grammatical errors and boilerplate characters. Prose is a bit lacking but that isn't a detriment to the story. If you have time. Read this.

Early review...

Enjoyable read did not not notice anything annoying will come back to binge read when author posts more

Edit ch192 

Jesus christ I f'ed up putting this one off I enjoyed this immensely ( i couldn't remember any of the story so i reread it all in one sitting)

Some spelling errors and weirdness with phrasing but it didn't detract from the story enough for me to care


  • Overall Score

Wholly Undead is a entertaining reincarnated as a skeleton story with cultivation. While some parts can be a bit cliche, what isn't these days, the world and characters are well done. Some grammar mistakes here and there but nothing too glaring considering some of the atrocities to language seen on this site. Give it a chance and I believe you will come to enjoy this funny tale of a socially awkward guy who wakes up king/pope of an undead empire headed for conflict.

Very good early work.

Read up to ch.66, so I feel comfortable to post an advanced review that tears a little deep into the work.



It's what either makes a read interesting with the use of unique language and speech, or gives your eyes visual HIV and/or cancer.

The story has all around OK grammar, but the author really needs to work on the sturcture of his sentences, take heed as to not write as he speaks, use more commas and fullstops, and make sure to not forget his "and, a" and so forth - while I am not a native english speaker, my english is native-level, and good enough for these things to really grate on my nerves.
In this story, it's really not that bad, but it definitely can be improved upon.

An editor would also help.


The style is essentially overlord, but without the shadow of japanese culture restraining our hero. It's fresh enough and entertaining. the story's still in what I'd call the 1st arc, so we don't know enough about the world and characters to make a judgement, but tthe style thus far deliveres - I would like less earth references, and to see the word "anime" less; we're all fellow weebs, but no respectable man of culture does a shinji-in-the-hostpital without closing his curtains first.

The caracters don't feel one-dimensional. Some of them are tropey, some of them are generic - which is important to make the main characters look more impressive by contrast, and gives disposable mobs as tools to the author - but they are rather interesting, and feel like they do have a life. It's centered around the MC, but not in a bad way.


The story is quite good. It borrows a lot from other tales, and is rather easy to get, but while you can guess how a scenario will unfold, there's a good chance you'd be unbalanced by the outcome. a very refreshing experience for a veteran on the royalroad platform.


Overall, a recommended read for people waiting on overlord, recovering from an antihero story completed or on hiatus (which means it's canceled but the author's too much of a bitch to admit it) or just in it to have a good old read.

It's not remarkable - but it hits almost all of the right spots.
