Fed up with a world where science has made every fantasy a reality and people just don’t care about stories anymore, a young video game developer named Kai uses ancient black magic to transport himself into one of his games, titled: Choices.

Disturbed by his powerlessness on Earth, Kai makes sure to give himself the ability to change this new world as he sees fit, literally.

If you were ridiculously powerful, would it be as cool as you thought it'd be?
Would you throw away all your morals and do whatever you wanted?
Would you find happiness? Would you find love?
Or would you end up realizing that…

Absolute power is pretty depressing.

How did I not find this sooner?

I can't believe I haven't found this before. It's so damn good! But there's one thing I'm happy about: I can binge read the whole thing! Don't have to wait for crap. 

Anyhow, this is a GREAT story! I really, REALLY love it! A lot of people complain about all the different POV's at first, but afterwards, you guys will understand why it's there. Anyhow, all I need to say is that you must read it.

Best fucking shit ever!

Although this is my first proper review on a fiction on RRL, I have read over 150 stories on RRL alone, and over 300 novels overall at the very least.


RE: WRITE is one of the most amazing fictiI'veever read, purely because of all the well thought out character development and intense plot. This is not about simple fights, wars, being an overpowered mc, no. This is about much more than that, but I won't try to spoil much in this review since this story is too good to be spoiled.



The plot in this is a very deep and well thought out plot that makes anyone who ends up reading this story think about life in general at least at some point. This is a guy who made RPG games for a living in a more futuristic world, and gets fed up with his powerlessness and uses some kind of magic to send himself to one of his first RPG's he created 900 years or so in the future.  To make is life fun, and to make sure he will never be powerless again, he gave himself a skill called RE: Write. This ability makes him literally rewrite anything and everything without limits. You might be thinking, wouldn't this just make the story boring and make all plots pointless? You are completely wrong because rewrite has a flaw, it is too limitless. Although I won't try to spoil too much, just think about what you would do if you could do anything but don't know if you should do anything at all. Oh and don't get me started on the plot twists, amazing! :D

Ps. Don't let the first 20 or so chapters fool you! The story has yet to begin!



The characters in this story are very relatable as they aren't just some clichè individual who is there for the sake of the plot. There are no clichè's throughout the story and isn't anyone who seems like they don't belong in the story or should be involved in it more. It is all perfectly well throughout. There are many different POV's in this story, and they all help to develop characters making your heart ache when something depressing happens to them and be happy when something good happens. It is kind of a complicated feeling, but a feeling none the less. The main characters have their own backstories explained and everything flows just right with no plot holes that make the characters seem like they aren't doing anything they aren't supposed to, like when an evil Mc who kills people for fun saves a little girl because why not.



Well, obviously there would be one or two sentences incorrect but what do you expect, we are all human after all. Basically all perfect and there is a sense of clarity throughout it all.



The way this is written is just right and nothing is done too fast or too slow. The use of different POVs are done just right, and the way worldbuilding is done to give the reader a clear understanding of the world. Everything is expressed just the right way, and it flows well with all the confusion since there's a lot of mystery throughout the whole story.



Fucking good shit. Almost made me cry a few times, and the only time that has happened was when watching both Clannad seasons and a few other emotional animes. Never a novel!

Read it if you know whats good for you.

Thought Provoking Story

I absolutely loved the story all the way to the ending. I will be honest with that I had to take a break from the binge where I just felt tired of the story. However, when I came back to complete my reading of it I am astounded with the way you ended the story. The story may be confusing to some on the end but I believe I can say that I understand the premise that you pushed in the ending. If you make this story an Amazon book I only would like to say to give more mystery hints at the beginning of the story that links with the end. Thank you for the amazing read.

  • Overall Score

I honestly really liked this fiction. Although, I do have to admit that I got a little bit too curious cause I knew that the prologue was- SPOILER ALERT- the beginning of the end. So I skipped to the ending while I was 40 chapters in, and oh boy... The feels. WhoCares, to say the least, is one of the few talented authors that can convey the human emotion of sadness into me. I would've cried, but I honestly couldn't.

Got sidetracked. This was an amazing read that got me really thinking about life as I continued to read. But there's a little problem with me thinking about life- I usually get depressed and feel helpless when I do so. Anyways, this isn't exactly for everyone. If you like tragic, serious, and slice-of-life types of fictions, you should read this. But! Be prepared for the feels in the end!

 I just finished rereading this story, over 2 years after it was completed. And if anything, my love for it has only grown.

RE:WRITE is an, interesting story about a world bound by Fate, and a group of people who try to escape his grasp.

But in honesty, to me this seems more of a sub-plot, despite taking up almost 70 chapters of this masterpiece. It's 70 chapters of adventure, learning, and hardship, but you only learn the real story in the end.

RE:WRITE tells to sad tale of a man, who made the greatest mistake of his life.

A man who became God.

First Read, Loved Every Moment

This was/is the first story I've read on RoyalRoad. I only discovered it through chance when I was reading through Isekai novel reccomendations. I'm extremely glad I did find it, though. I'm by no means an amazing writer, or reader, but I do highly reccomend this book to others. 

I understand that the plot points may have been messy to some, but the book just had such charm, that I read it in 2 days, and couldn't take my eyes off the page the whole time. As for the characters. They were written really well. Kai, Amy, all of them. I felt Kai's words also. It was a tear jerker. I actually cried.

Thank you for the work of art, WhoCares! I look forward to reading more of your content in future!

Good Story but too many POV

I really like the story but like the others who doesn't like too many POV, I am one of them. So I just skip the other POV and just read Kai's chapters.

Surprise for those who thought " another cliche story"

Kairo Mezai ( MC) - former game-developer, travels into the world of one of his games - Erath(Magic and levels included).And there you think : "Another cliche story" but no, Kairo has one thing that no one of popular MCs have - power of a God.No , no, you didnt mishear, he can just think a script in his mind and its done! Then you think: " That wont be interesting , he is the strongest , what is the point in reading then?" . The point is, my friends , in his interactions with the " strongest",side characters development(they are not just background layouts) and the flow of the story( I seriously dont know what will be next, I cannot even unravel characters in the prologue). If you want a analogy to this story - Onepunchman.
Overall - 5/5 , just dont stop writing.

I started reading this in return for feedback on some random words I put together.. Glad I did.


I am a bit conflicted with my own ratings, but I hope, that they are objective.

To make one point clear: The style is homogenous. The descriptions are good, there is a certain flow to it and there's a huge variety of  words; an extensive vocabulary if you know what I mean.... I can't really give full points, because sometimes backstorys (like that of that ugly bandit) are coming a bit to abruptly. It's not poorly written, just a bit "in your face". There is a lot of switching of points of view as well; sometimes multiple chapters are written from another characters perspective. While I personally dislike that (It's really just too much for me since multiple characters are introduced one after another in the beginning and the chapter count until background is done is hiiigh), it could very well be just because I really dislike characters such as that Candela, which of course gets the most screentime xD

It's a matter of taste, so since the style is homogenous, I can't give a bad rating for my own preferences.


Story... The story is very good. There is a lot of background, the style of description really creates a vivid world - And that is important for a story. It takes place in an interesting, cohesive environment. And the best part: The events of the story fit in perfectly. It's certainly not 0-8-15, the twists and turns are interesting and the prologue foreshadows even more of that.

Grammar is good.

Characters are good as well. I might not like some of them, but they are what they are and what they are is certainly not shallow. Downside is, that with so many characters, one might be forced to read quite a number of words about and from the perspective of one that one really doesn't like.


All in all: Without some of it's edges (And I don't mean extensively fleshed out characters, don't get me wrong), it might as well get printed - with a hard cover.

Meh story, great style

Style 5/5: Author is amazing storyteller, even when a story is subpart.


Story 3.5/5: It seems like author tried to tell several different stories and failed to connect them together. It felt like world was static and events happened just so author could write a little bit more. Arcs had loose connections and honestly could be their own separate stories. Air kingdom island crashes; Dark kingdom academy. These two could be their own stories and honestly speaking could be written much better individually if they weren't connected. Instead I couldn't care less why characters did what they did. Too little time was spent on each individual arc to bring reader to care. Air kingdom was described as super advanced compare to other kingdoms, but you don't see it, as technological level of other kingdoms isn't connected to struggle of their citizens. Reach people in other kingdoms are still rich, slaves are the same in every kingdom. You would think that life of middle class is better in Air kingdom, but there's no comparation with others. All technology Air kingdom has feels meaningless, like all they have are toys. I can continue about other arcs and kingdoms, but it will take too long.


Grammar 5/5: Had no problem with it whatsoever.


Characters 3.5/5: I felt no connection with characters. There's no character development for Kai. There was a glimpse at it at the start and then when he was sealed, but that's it. I didn't care about him at all. And I can't understand Amy either. Author just throws her personality at us without showing us how it was built, she's one dimensional, while being main cast. Her falling in love with Kai was absolutely random. I was just confused about it. Didn't feel any joy for a couple. Runir and Lily are probably the most developed characters in the story and honestly speaking author should've just wrote about their story with no Kai bullshit that just killed all interest I had in this story. Other characters were even more of an afterthought and I don't have opinion about them, because of how bland they are.


Overall 4/5: I enjoyed this in the end. But not because of story or characters, but because of author's style. I would enjoy to read a story from this author if he would go with something simple and not complicated. Also I wouldn't recommend this story to anyone, as you will gain some expectations in early story only to have them betrayed in a bad way. Ending felt like I wasted my time and I didn't shrugged off this feeling until I decided to write review and realised that author's style was indeed enjoyable.
