Memories lost, Powers buried, Dalis spends three years in the Caleyar Orphanage listlessly. Unlike his peers, he will not become a Vanquisher. Protecting the borders against the demonic beasts? No, Dalis’s fate was far beyond that. Dalis's very presence was destined to cause the world to quake, and the impending crisis to be overturned. 

And yet, all of his endeavours were insignificant. 

It was only the prelude to the beginning.

Heaven and Hell await his return.

Was everything Dalis lived in those times of lost memories for naught? 

"Light-hearted” and very comedic adventure novel with a grand overarching plot. As the plot progresses, the story turns more serious. It also has quite a load of dialogue. There are references from other works too and even an ambitious arrogant young master. Not as an antagonist but as a MAIN CHARACTER. This is about a Great Journey/Odyssey/Bizzare Adventure

Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday

This review isn't from someone who had read up to the newest chapter available so be warned that things may and probably will change. This is a review of the first few chapters. If you don't want to read the whole review then a short version would be:
There are some minor things i don't like but i would recommend reading it, its good.

OK, lets start with the good points.

The authors writing style is really smooth, its easy to read and if you don't look closely its hard to find anything bad about it.

The characters are rather well defined and feel like they have a backstory to them. It does not seem to be one of those stories where characters exist only to further the plot.

The magic system of the world is rather solid, its not the best i have ever seen but as a fantasy fanatic i am rather happy with it.

Now to some things i don't like.

From time to time there appear to be small grammar mistakes and in some situations the author uses unusual ways to describe moments that could have been made a lot less weird if he just used different, better suited words.

When a time skip happens the author tends to use small sentences to notify the reader. In my opinion using the dot system that most stories use or making a short paragraph instead of just a sentence would make it better, but that's probably only a personal problem of mine though.


Another thing is fights. The author stated that the first 15 chapters are rather explanation heavy so its probably because of that but fights tend to be interrupted with info dumps or useless explanations from time to time, this will probably change and if it does i will mention it here in the review.

The last thing i want to mention is that the conversations between character and some scenes oftentimes feel anime influenced, sometimes i think its too much but its easy to ignore for me, but i know many people can't stand it, so theres that.


So all in all even though i know i wrote a lot more about the negatives i would still recommend people to read this story, it has lots of potential and the small mistakes only seem so jarring because of how close to extremely good the writing is.

As the title says. The story is globally good, and the characters are heavily inspired from characters from japanese anime/light novels.

It takes a few chapters for the story to take off, and the writing dialogs is a bit off at the beginning, but the author gets better with time.

For the pacing, I personnaly find it a bit slow, with fights that drag on for too long for my taste.

All in all, a decent story, go for it if you enjoy japanese-like characters.
