Imagine being forced to live, after death, as incorporeal bodies trapped in a vast space of nothingness for thousands of years, with nothing to do but exchanging past memories with other cohabitants (read: weirdos). Everybody wanted out, but there was no way to leave the Void…

Until one day, a young man was finally summoned, as a powerful but reluctant mentor, by a bubbly and motivated but completely naive young girl. Baiyi, finally out of the Void, was the only one who could save all of the other 32 souls from their prison and his summoner might just be The Key to their freedom.

However, Baiyi had to use the techniques and abilities the other souls had taught him throughout the years, and together with his own extensive knowledge of anime and game tropes from his shady and dangerous past as an otaku, to face the biggest challenge of them all: training the clumsy young girl he was forced to partner up with… into a competent sorcerer!

This is a story of heroic adventures, cunning strategies and romantic tales. How will our MC thrive in a world completely strange to him? Where will his ambitions and abilities take him in the palace?

    Im crying 😭 100 chapters in and there is no decent plot line. Its all slice of life stories between the Guy, his Summoner, and friends. I came in because of the Kingdom Building tag but so far its all School Arc type of plot. There isnt even a major anti-protaginist or some enemy. Most of the time its all cringe stories and some Otaku-related talks. It's like Im reading a Japanese Light Novel. Female MC doesnt even have a decent growth and still stays timid and shy girl. The MC even acts too conservative like a overprotective father to the female MC. Honestly, I was expecting something grand but probably this is the intent of the author. Its not that bad if your into comedy and slice of life stories. But if your into something like a grand plotline from zero to hero, then dont expect anything in this novel. I will still continue reading this in hopes that the plot would get interesting.

    I, personally, really enjoyed this book. It was really funny, and it was 100% worth the time spent reading it.

      If you read the story you will see near the end that he marries the assassin, the fairy, and the warrior walker and has kids with them. He also is in a relationship with Aya and had an affair with Undine.

    it was interesting at first but mc is too op and it makes the book get boring really fast. and mc is suppose to be like 40k year old or something but all his students and servant are little girls around 16, some would do lewd stuff unknowingly in front of mc,some would do them knowingly and mc and his void friends would comment on those little girls in creepy voice in private. after reading around 150 chapters, i just stop
