Fushi no Kami: Rebuilding Civilization Starts With a Village

Ash is a young boy with apparent past-life memories who lives in a remote, deserted village. As he remembers leading a bountiful life, he can’t bear living in a world akin to the Dark Ages, where not even the internal combustion engine exists. Ash envisions the rebirth of a civilization where housing with proper sanitation is the norm and the world is connected via a means of transportation faster than horses. For that reason, he is eager to consult books containing knowledge from a highly-developed ancient culture that is rumored to have existed far in the past.

Ash makes use of the church’s resources, learning how to read and obtaining the knowledge that he seeks. In addition, he enlists the help of the people around him, including Maika, the village chief’s daughter. Together, they aim to develop their own village.

This is only the beginning of the story about a young boy who sets out to revolutionize the world in order to rebuild civilization and create his ideal life!

  • It also has left me with a relatively good impression and with little to no qualms despite how Isekais’ usually are.

    Very intriguing and likable characters and development.

  • Juat finished vol 5. Strange, with some parts Irksome but not that much, and in general an intriguing and beautiful story as far as my experience went by anyway.

    All in all, the novel is:
    Strange but beautiful. I generally like the phase, the story, the characters, etc.

    General rating: 7
    Personal rating 7

    7 cause despite it’s absurdity, the story is still generally nice and sensible. Might be biased but compared to others, this is relatively more tame and wholesome in my opinion but also has a fair bit if action and humor of which all in all makes it entertaining and relatively good without being too off putting despite being a mixture of medieval and modern sensibilities, especially as far as Isekai’s goes.

  • Damnnn this new volime is good
    My waiting time is not a vain
    Cheering for both heroine tho

  • UwU
    Finally it’s here
    Thank you for the update sir ^^

  • For XIX, i think those mistake in naming is simply translation mistake, just like how “common cold” and “flu” have similar naming in japan and for “books” and “codex” its probably because in Japan when they still copy by hand they called it “books in Japan word”

    Its probably simply mistake because its translation so that result in something feels off

  • the ads are too much plesase help shrik and earn click allow ads cant be pass thorugh anymore it stucks

  • Hey, can you add this novel? Vol 1 was translated on ero light novels.

    “Tales of Harem: A Foursome! Fivesome! Sixsome! With Fantasy Girls!”

  • The heroine’s mama is the best girl imo. ><

  • So far i enjoyed this novel,still decent tho
    No magic so far, everything about physical ability (hunting, chemistry etc) giving vibe like Dr.Stone but fantasy ver. + World building genre

  • It’s decent enough so far

  • From the review online i dont see a magic tag. but its got good reviews and a 4.4 on novelupdate

  • good enough, 7

    • Is there magic in that world?

      • dunno , asfar as 1st volume get its no magi , it meaned some demo being , but they didnt appeared in the 1st vol

        • Yes, I allmost finished this volume and it seems like the author, has not yet decided on this. Atm it can lead to either with or without magic.
          The demons can refer to a ‘Beast’ (like a bear) or an actual ‘demon’
          And the ‘ancient civilization’ can be either scientific or magic based, since hardly anything is revealed about it so far.

          Other than that, the author seems to try to go for a ‘realistic’ route but goes a bit overboard with it at the same time. For example the ‘common cold’ is described as something you could die from. Now in the Dark Ages this was true for the Flu, but not the ‘common cold’. If you die from the ‘common cold’ you allready were dieing from something else and the ‘common cold’ just finished you off. And even today we still have no medicine against the ‘common cold’ or the ‘flu’ So why pick these instead of the more dangerous diseases that we now have medicine against?

          Anyway it seems the author Googled his information and used it for his story wich makes some details feel kinda off. Like for example: books being copied by hand, yet a village priest with a whole bookcase of books (even if he was a scholar) the thing is that in the time that books were copied by hand (and not printed) they were not called books, but a codex. And that’s not something you just have a bookcase full off. Since not many people could read there for not many people could copy them. There are more of these inconsistencies.

          In addition the change of perspective seem often not needed, and just slow the story down.
          Overal I would give this a 6.5 but perhaps it gets better with volume 2.

          • I cannot agree about your opion in regards to books on the story.
            In this world Church is not like religious organizatorom of our world. Sure they lead the ceremonia but they are also more like reaserch and educational organization. They are responsible for education event in villages (priest was supposted to teach kids but he didnt brother). There is a mention that Priest are responsible for copying and distribution of Basic knowledge trough the villages like writings on agriculture etc. But from MC its cery Basic becouse most of the information was list.
