The Hero Laughs While Walking the Path of Vengeance a Second Time


Kaito Ukei was destined for greatness in his new world, landing himself the role of a hero and defeating the evil sorceress alongside a band of noble adventurers. When he’s double crossed, though, and brutally murdered by his former allies, something inside him snaps. Death brings Kaito neither peace nor salvation. Rather, it instills in him a singular desire—to squeeze the life out of his blasted betrayers in the cruellest manner possible…! The strange twist of fate that gives him a second chance in the world with all his memories intact provides opportunity to do just that, and so begins his quest to stalk and torture the members of his former party in the bloodiest, unholiest, most sadistic ways imaginable!

  • I’m enjoying this series, thank you for making them available.

    When will Vol. 6 be available? It’s translation was released recently.

  • Love this series. I read the WN but they stopped updating after the 6th arc. Glad the LN is being published.

  • Reading through vol 2 at the moment

    MC is reasonably revenge-oriented and the mechanics around the stats/level based world and the MC´s second try are pretty interesting.
    MC himself is at least a decent-ish enough actual character by LN standards; Veering between revenge-/kill-everyone and actually recognizing that targeted revenge is better, for example.

    So far its an okay read, my issue is that the “bad” people the MC wants revenge on are way, way too evil/bad in character/action.
    Despite the fact that the MC was fucked over pretty well, the “revenge target” people are additionally shown to be actually depraved/evil, instead of just doing their own thing according to the world and locale.

  • This is a surprisingly fun read. The title and artwork makes it seem like it’s gonna be some super edgelord revenge story, but it actually turns into a revenge black comedy once he meets the rabbit chick midway through v1.

  • Absolutely shity edge lord, cringe. Boruto lvl cringe.

  • This series starts out pretty good but then it kinda fizzles out a bit cuz author didn’t have the balls to actually make a true villain mc, he’s pretty annoying and contradictory, still pretty fun in a trashy way though just don’t expect things to make sense.

  • Man I didn’t expect this to come out as novel. I read the manga and loved it 🥳

  • But this IS nidome no yuusha

    • I can see that now, thanks for pointing it out. When I first commented, I had only read the description and the prologue. Once I saw that the main character’s name was the same, I realized this was just the LN version of the series.

  • This novel seems very similar to “FFF-Class Trashero” and “Nidome no Yuusha,” so if you like this type of story then those could be more content for you to read.

  • Um why a lot of novels has long title 😅

    • Supuestamente entre más largos son los nombre más interesados son las personas en las novelas. Básicamente el título te dice de qué trata la historia. Es prácticamente una competencia.

      • that competition just took things too far. not that I’m complaining since it’s true that I’m way too lazy to read those synopsis.
