Archmage Kaplan took over the body of a young kid who had been deceived by a childhood friend.
He discovered by coincidence in the boy’s diary that he wished to become a renowned magician.
“Shall we give it another shot?”
‘All right, let’s do it.’
In the end, those who are good at magic should use it well.
Am I too fast again?
Alright, will leave a review if its not trash
Quic review plz
Honestly if this is a another same old academy novel then I’ll just reread fated to loved by villains again🗿🗿🗿.
I didn’t read it yet but i like the cover😏😏😏😏😏
Harem, archmage isekai to a similar world but one where instead of wizards beyond knights knights are above wizards. Kaplan now Flan/Plan decides to slowly destroy the hierarchy and attain new heights.
Yes it’s harem. Boring? You decide.
He doesn’t show interest beyond apprenticeship.
Also mc original body a knight family so he is at odds and whatever.
Hmm, it released finally…. Was interested in it for some time….
Read 23 chaps….. basically mc who became strongest gets bored and somehow posseses Flan’s body ( don’t know if it’s another world or in the future) who is from a knight family but want to become strongest wizard and then he tries to become strongest. Also there is Harem
As for characters they are okayish, story is generic (sometimes boring)
MTL is somewhat readable
Rating – 5.5/10 ( Read if u bored)
Guys recommend me some weak to strong academy novels
Nooo another childhood friend problem again, why these authors don’t know how to make some ideas? Too lazy or too dump?
From the synopsis :
”Wow i am an overpowered archmage and i possessed a young boy! what a new life!!! sadly the body was abandonned by his childhood friend..”
Generic and boring. I was expecting more since it appears on front page of novelpia
pretty decent compared to most novel here
Don’t take the reviews seriously! Read patiently 25 chapters.You will know.
The novel pretty Decent
Most of the reviews here are wrong, looks like they didn’t even give it a try, but actually, this novel is pretty good, and not an ordinary one. The main character Kaplan was an archmage in his previous life and now he possessed the body of a boy named Flan who wanted to become a great magician. at first, he was not interested in this new life too. but he like the changes and started proving himself again. the other character is also very nice and feels unique in their own way.
The best thing I like about it is that the explanation of magic is really nice and it’s not a very heavy read. It is a fun read overall. 8.9 for me. I like this kind of story.
I was reading on the TL site and I really liked it. If you want to read the translation you can check it on nu, or maybe the TL site readingpia. About the translation, they are good.
I’m not someone who usually writes something to criticize novels but this…
I expected a lot from this, things like the academy and the harem I don’t care but for me it was a disappointment and I gave it several reads to understand and still nothing.
For me, the mc is not an archmage, he is more of a scholar or a researcher because to be an archmage he has not shown anything at all, I think the author made a mistake in the title of this novel because he has nothing dominant, not an archmage.
If someone liked this novel, perfect, there shouldn’t be any problem but for me, this was a disappointment and I didn’t expect much
After reading this novel till the cliffhanger of chapter 50 I was enraptured by its intriguing theme, the mc is not a Mr know it all, he takes time to readjust into the new environment he is currently living in, he rationalize his views and makes comparisons with his era like his disdain towards the self pity that is prevalent with the current wizard in the present era, and best of all is the scientific approach he incorporate in his magic and way of battling after all a wizards goal is for the truth and not just to be some classic shounen based wizard who only use magic to attack in a direct manner, I like how the Author provided an early and clear goal for the mc which is to make the wizard community dominant once more. If you find this helpful give this novel a chance.
First of all nah this novel is good. Let it cook.
Second of all the to the comment above mine: of course he isn’t an archmage, he’s in a new body
This novel is pretty damn good.
Hoping for more updates.
The negative comments about this novel are laughably bad takes.
It’s good. Read it.
a top novel of pia well=written !
People who rate it good are probably new readers who have hardly completed 50 novels. Veterans with hundreds of books of experience can already predict the plot word for word. That’s why we are disappointed.
Veterans? Get off your high horse. A novel doesn’t have to be fresh and unpredictable to be good and enjoyable.
it’s ok boys
This is a fun novel. I have read 6 chapters for now but it has been really fun. I usually try to read as much as I can before saying anything here but some pro reviewers here said that my review with around 20 chapters worth reading is nothing.
There is no need to read a story you can’t make yourself read. Reading must be fun and not a tiresome process. If a so called B Grade novel is giving more fun than a so called S Grade novel then what’s the reading of S Grade? People say that S Grade one will become “better” with 100+ chapters but if reading even 6 chapters of the B grade one is giving me more fun than 20 chapters of the S Grade one then I will prefer B Grade over the S Grade. Sometimes people forget that Novels and other medias are entertainment, they must have enough fun, it you get to enjoy them after 100 or thousands of chapters in contrast to others where you get to enjoy even in the beginning then don’t expect everyone to have same taste.
And also, after reading 100s of such novels I can say that in terms of @Feng I am a veteran. Yes, I can predict most of the story of this one, even the possible end with these 6 chapters only. But does it take away the fun elements? Not a chance. Every story works on one single structure called as Hero Journey, all of our Epics are based on that or some variation of it. It appeared first time in recorded texts via the Epic of King Gilgamesh. And every Epic or Hero story is based on that one structure, which is actually very simple: We have a hero, something disturb the Hero’s life, Hero works hard to overcome the issue in his life, Resolves it, and get to a new Normal life. So every story is predictable, but it does not mean that we can not enjoy them.
Everything revolves fun. If you are having fun consuming a 1/5 star novel or manga or game or even a movie then it’s fine. Try it yourself and enjoy it. Don’t listen to so called Veterans, Pro Reviewers, Critics or even people like me. Just enjoy.
Update: Now I have read 60 chapters. Yes plot is predictable but it has been executed properly and I like the MC here. He is not a sage but a true Magician who learn new things and apply them in the real life.
I think what he means is that new readers like novels that are very predictable and are power fantasy’s. For example… Solo Leveling. It’s objectively bad: the MC is bland cause his personality is based on the fact that he is strong, everyone likes him for no reason and their entire personalities evolve and depend on the MC, everyone also gets slapped by him easily despite being stronger than him (at the moment) or as strong as him, and the romance is dry because there is nothing to base it on. It sucks there’s nothing that stands out, it’s the most generic cookie cutter novel you could ever read.. aww crap I forgot about those Chinese cultivation novels, let’s ignore that. But I loved it, despite these criticisms I still enjoyed it.
But me personally, I wouldn’t take that- I mean if you set the tone right and stick with it then more than likely I’ll enjoy it. Anyways I guess my main point is, I don’t know. Enjoy whatever novels and feel free to hate them, it’s online novels lmao.
Wait what why did I even write that then if there was no main point. I’m going to make up one now, you’re correct. A novel does not have to revolutionize a genre to be good, you know how many academy novels I read just because they have obsession in it? Well probably like 13 max, but point is. Yeah cliches aren’t bad.
I know what you are saying…, When I started reading more famous and generic novels, it was a fresh and exciting feeling, just like watching your first anime. Now I am tired of the normal genre and It doesn’t matter, if they are MTL or not. Academy, System, isekai are getting out of hand, We need something new and refreshing..
Also, Solo leveling Manhwa is much verse than the WN and Solo leveling’s sequel is out now, did anybody read it?
Sorry, Extra, the posts above that praise this crappy novel are laughably bad takes for numerous reasons.
First, the title of the novel is the archmage “doesn’t hide his talent.” Bullsh!t. He is constantly hiding his talent, from the Agora wall, to the lessons with Trixie, etc. Indeed, the author even calls himself out on his own hypocrisy in Trixie’s monologue in one of the chapters in the late 20s. And the ending of Chapter 70 and his calling abstain – what is that. other than the horrific trope of “hiding his talent” because “reasons”?
Second, the MC is basically a eunuch – it’s like Peter Venkman commenting on Walter Peck – “Yes it’s true, this man has no dick.” Although maybe I should scale it back a little – there is a reason he wears Hera – the black glove artifact – on his left hand like a 12 year old with chuunibyou, since that’s the only action he is going to get.
Third, the MC is basically a dick – he has no concept of any kind of interpersonal relationships. But the author magically forces all these women to fall for this charmless a-hole – except of course the childhood friend, who is like a caricature of a bad NTR novel heroine.
Fourth, the plot plods along with interminable set-ups for major events that could (and should) be finished in 1/4 the time.
In short, I wouldn’t recommend this novel for anyone other than a 12 year old shounen fanboy who likes their MCs to (1) think internally they are smarter than anyone else even when hiding their power, (2) ignore women because, girls, ick, yet still (3) have all the women fall for him for no rational reason.
You choose to criticize the one with better writing quality and a mc who isn’t a wuss and isn’t a skirt chaser like 80% of the novels on this site ad to why?
He isn’t what its says in title?
All bloody academy synopsis has those writing seems like written by 6th graders and to think people cant digest something of this standard,
Never seen taking a dig at those 3rd rate academy novels. But why do i am not surprised ,
@rob z looks like he just got out of his mom’s basement and saw how rl works ig thats why he’s pushing his insecurities on this one.
And dude you you want to wet your pants there are adult eroticas on the internets . This mc isn’t someone who thinks with his bottom like the 12yr horndog like you . He’s been on the grind since day 1 trampoline on those immature btches like yourself
This guy @rob z aint getting any btches .
So guys dont take anything seriously what this caveman says , and if not 10 ,this novel is surely 8.5/10 . Beware of reviews like these horndogs.
Dudes like these have only know the world of peppa pig
Wow a review war is happening with this novel May come annually for the comments and some updates
(Sometimes man just want to see the world burn)
decided to throw my hat in my review ring, because why not?
and my verdict is – this is generic. sorry, guys. it begins generic like popcorn, then get gets bad generic like bad popcorn
now, for the inevitable – ‘these novels are all the same, you need to turn your mind off to enjoy it, get off your high horse’ people, i do have a criteria for judging, okay?
all these types of novels have arcs/developments/characters – and so when i read them, i judge how cliche/ fresh they are. freshness, or at least the willingness to give a twist, or try something new, or an extra quirk for the characters gets points in my book.
this one doesn’t have it. it is just the tropes in the blandest ways possible. competently written, but boring
for a great one – you should ready academy necromancer, or weakest demon hunter, or i killed the player of the academy.
Yeah its just one of the best only when you count it among generic fantasy harems.
There are no significant male side characters
Like all the 10/12 villain and allies are all women?
And mc just enslaved the villain girl who was killing the mormal citizens and never harmed a single hair on that girl?
Author self insertion as some gentleman ass seem quite evident.
And girls are submissive quickly to mc and all male hate mc like he just killed their family
wow new 5701 characters seems usual now.gl i guess.
people like these are the reason why so many bad harem novel these days because readers only want 18+ scene, without any relationship romance development.
