Overview

The so-called "different world reincarnated thing" serialized in " Become a Novelist ". A story in which the hero who reincarnated as a werewolf while having the memory of the Japanese of the previous life aims to settle down with demons and people as a "just lieutenant" of the Demon King Army. Speaking of reincarnation in another world , "cheat ability by reincarnation" and " technological innovation utilizing modern knowledge of the previous life " are standard. However, although the main character of this work certainly has high fighting ability, it is a basic spec because it is a human wolf. Also, the main character is also a magician , but that was also learned from scratch by becoming a disciple of another magician. In other words, each ability does not stand out from the world after reincarnation, and if limited to each field, there are characters with cheat specs higher than the main character. Therefore, the hero will be struggling as a mediator between monsters and humans as an existence that "is born as a monster and can understand the way of thinking of human beings while growing up in the culture of monsters". Although there is a bloody battle depiction, the overall style is characterized by abundant domestic depictions such as security maintenance, negotiations with other city executives, nemawashi and secret agreements, and behind-the-scenes work. Sometimes it is depicted that he fulfills his duties as a "just adjutant" , sometimes steadily, sometimes sincerely, and sometimes by chance due to intimidation or misunderstanding.

The serialization started on July 22, 2015, and then updated around 3 episodes a week. The main story was completed on December 30, 2016, and the Gaiden was completed on June 30, 2017. It has also been made into a book, and 13 volumes have already been released by Earth Star Novel.

Nisieda is in charge of the illustrations up to 11 volumes (the main part of the Naruro version) . Teshima nari is in charge of the 12th volume, which is the Gaiden of the Naro version. This has been replaced with consent from the idea of ​​the editorial department, "I want to convey the arrival of a new peaceful era with pictures."

By the way, it is clearly stated that there is no digestion accompanying the publication of books. In addition, two comicalize works with different drawing staff are serialized in Comic Earth Star. Even pixiv comics and Nico Nico still images are being delivered late. The comicalize drawn by Isaza Terada was serialized under the title of "Reincarnated as a Human Wolf, Starting the Demon King's Deputy Officer", but it was discontinued with the update for December 2016. There are 2 volumes already published. A comicalize drawn by Yuchi Kosumi is being serialized under the title of "Reincarnated into a Human Wolf, Chapter of the Beginning of the Demon King's Deputy Officer".

6 volumes have already been published. On the Comic Earth Star site, the page of "Starting Edition" has been deleted, but since the serialized page remains in pixiv comics and Nico Nico Seiga, it can be viewed.

Character

Veight is the main character of Der Werwolf: The Annals of Veight. He is a human from Earth reborn as a werewolf. Although he knows he used to be human and has retained some his memories, he has decided to make the most of his second life and does everything he can to make the lives of those around him better.

Appearance

As a human, Veight is a tall, handsome man with black hair and deep purple eyes. He has a muscular but lean build.

As a werewolf, he is also a bit leaner than other werewolves like the Garney brothers, but he supplements that with Magic. His fur is a deep black and his appearance strikes fear into many humans who have heard the exaggerated tales of his exploits.

Personality

Despite what others may say about him, Veight is the kind of person that few understand. Despite being a demon, he understands humans, and despite being below-average in physical ability, he supplemented it with magic to become the leader of his village. He understood that cooperation with humans was necessary to live prosperously, a topic that few demons could understand.

Veight makes full use of his knowledge from Earth to navigate political and personal conversations, and often uses others' underestimation of him in order to gain the upper hand in many situations. The issue is that he has a tendency to charge headfirst to solve issues himself without utilizing his subordinates. He often fails to see how important he is to the Meraldian Commonwealth, constantly downplaying his importance to a fault.

Veight also loves food that many demons find alien, such as fish.

Abilities

Werewolves are an uncommon species of demon that generally tend to keep to themselves. They are fond of meat and value high physical abilities, quickly and easily submitting to the pack leader. Veight possess the traits, attributes and/or abilities of, transform into, or be/is a werewolf, a human or humanoid being with the ability to transform into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature. He gains the traits of werewolves, most obvious being ability to change into a wolf with the natural characteristics inherent to both wolves and humans, including senses, stamina, agility, etc. In addition werewolves are often attributed strength and speed far beyond those of wolves or men and may have them in lesser amount even when untransformed.

For the werewolves of the current generation, Veight is the leader due to his ability to use magic to enhance his strength, reflexes, and willpower to heights many times greater than the average werewolf.

  • Razor-Sharp Claws - While transformed, werewolves possess razor-sharp claws on their forepaws which easily can rip and tear through humans as well as even harm vampires.
  • Superhuman Strength - Werewolves experience a dramatic increase in physical strength upon transformation, able to bend thick iron bars with their bare hands and easily lift heavy objects that mortal men cannot.
  • Superhuman Speed - Werewolves are capable of terrible speed which makes them swifter than both man and wolf alike.
  • Superhuman Durability - Werewolves are highly resistant to injuries that would instantly kill lesser creatures, such as electrical shock and gunfire. They have a high tolerance for physical pain.
  • Superhuman Agility - Werewolves are extremely lithe and can jump several meters in the air in a single bound.
  • Healing Factor - Werewolves can regenerate their skin when reverted back to human.
  • Magic Absorption [Unique Magic] - Veight like Gomoviroa can absorb magic and is unharmed when used but can still feel the the non magic parts of the spells (IE. Heat from fire, Cold from ice spells)
