Production

Rifujin na Magonote commented that he created Rudeus aware of his controversial personality. He intended Rudeus' actions would be more meaningful in the process. He had no issue criticizing Rudeus at an early stage and left it to the audience to judge him. Magnote wanted the audience to pay attention to a specific side of his character and be able to relate to him. Earlier, he said that I felt a big response in episodes 6 to 7 of the web version of the novels, but that was just when Roxy took Rudeus out. Thanks to her, Rudeus overcomes the trauma. Such a story gave a warm impression to his readers and made him think, "Let's grow in this direction."

After publishing the first parts of his work, Rifujin wrote that he intended the series to last at least a hundred chapters. Due to criticism towards his work, Rifujin considered ending the series prematurely but was inspired to continue when his work reached the first place on Syosetu's daily rankings. Originally, the story arc where Rudeus' reunites with Aisha was supposed to be completely different from the published work. The author intended to have Lilia die off-screen, and Aisha to be hiding under a different identity. However, he found Lilia's death anticlimactic and decided against it; thus, he had to rewrite the story arc to make sense of her survival and lack of contact. Rifujin stated the story arc might be bizarre due to the changes but expresses no regrets in his decision; he noted Lilia's survival made him reconsider Zenith's condition in the story.

Synopsis

Despite being bullied, scorned, and oppressed all of his life, a 34-year-old shut-in still found the resolve to attempt something heroic—only for it to end in a tragic accident. But in a twist of fate, he awakens in another world as Rudeus Greyrat, starting life again as a baby born to two loving parents.

Preserving his memories and knowledge from his previous life, Rudeus quickly adapts to his new environment. With the mind of a grown adult, he starts to display magical talent that exceeds all expectations, honing his skill with the help of a mage named Roxy Migurdia. Rudeus learns swordplay from his father, Paul, and meets Sylphiette, a girl his age who quickly becomes his closest friend.

As Rudeus' second chance at life begins, he tries to make the most of his new opportunity while conquering his traumatic past. And perhaps, one day, he may find the one thing he could not find in his old world—love.

Character

"It's no good to overestimate me. Victory is something that you grasp by always being modest, you know?" Rudeus Greyrat

The main character of this work. Her nickname is "Rudi/Rudy". He is a reincarnated person from modern Japan and was born in the village of Buena, Fitua, Kingdom of Asura. In his previous life, he was withdrawn until he was 34 years old due to bullying in high school and did not attend the funeral of his parents, so he was kicked out of the house by his brother and died in an accident trying to help three high school students who were run over by a truck immediately afterwards. did. After his reincarnation, he decided to live seriously this time because of the regret that he threw everything halfway in his previous life.

Keeping in mind "do not get sick", "do not blame others", and "work hard", learn magic, swordsmanship, language, etc. from an early age, avoid rubbing with others as much as possible, even if something happens I try not to unilaterally say bad things, considering the other person's position and what I did wrong  . Also, because he was a dropout in his previous life, he does not want to abandon the weak and the dropout, and tries to do his best. It is thought to be a hard-working and mild-mannered person, but since his roots are amorous, he cannot read the air and may make the other person uncomfortable. Other than that, the bad things of the previous life have not completely disappeared at the time of reincarnation, such as playing around with the other person and making a fool of the other person, but he grows up by meeting various people.

The total amount of magical power is extremely large due to magical power training from childhood and Laplace factor. Since you can use attack magic without chanting, you can control the generation and store the magic power so that even low-ranked magic can be released with the power of the imperial class. However, since the human body cannot withstand using magic that is commensurate with the total amount of magical power, magic that makes use of the enormous total amount of magical power cannot be used. Also, only attack magic can be used without chanting, and healing magic cannot be used without chanting. His specialties are "rock cannonballs" that shape stones made with magical power, add rotation, and shoot them at ultra-high speed, and "mud swamp", a mixed magic of water and soil systems. In addition to the fact that swordsmanship does not have a fighting spirit, the sword god that does not suit the aptitude because his master Paul did not dislike the aptitude of the Kitagami style and the next master, Guillene, was a sword god style swordfighter. He was taught the style and stopped as an intermediate swordfighter, but when he was 11 years old, he changed his right eye to a magical eye "predictive eye" that can see the future a few seconds ahead.. Its ability is recognized by some of the most powerful people in the world, but its self-evaluation is low due to the fact that it has seen many such overwhelming strong people and the reflection of the previous life. On the contrary, there is a tendency for people to misunderstand or overestimate what went well by chance as a strategy.

In addition to the "human language" that I learned in my childhood, I can use the "beast god language" that I learned from Guillene and the "genie language" that I learned from the dictionary I got from Roxy.

After learning magic from his tutor Roxy, he taught Sylphiette magic, but became Ellis's tutor to earn money for Lanoa Magic College. In the Fitua territory transfer incident that occurred the day after his 10th birthday, he was sent to the demon continent with Ellis, where he was helped by the Spelled Louis Geld, and then the three of them formed an adventurer party "Dead End". Aim for the Kingdom of Asura. Arriving in Fitua territory over three years, he left for Louis Geld and Ellis to find his missing mother, Zenith, in the northern part of the central continent.

In the search in the north, Zenith went around to make a name for himself as an adventurer in order to find himself, and after two years he became known as "Rudeus of the Quagmire". After learning from a report from Erinarise that Zenith was on the continent of Vegarit and Paul and his friends were heading for him, he enrolled as a special student at Lanoa Magic University at the recommendation of Erinarise and Hitogami.

《Personality》
── Because of his former life, he is careful not to get carried away and become arrogant. As a result, he is extremely self-aware and humble because he does not want to revert to his old self. He is a kind person, helping his friends and protecting his family whenever needed. Due to being capable in many fields, people have high expectations of him. Rudeus is very polite to others, often making them uncomfortable.
── Having the morals of his past life, he hesitates with the thought of killing someone. However, he displays aggression and blood lust toward anyone threatening his family. He is extremely perverted and even though he has this shortcoming, his family and friends still love him since he always takes care of them to a great extent. Even with very high magic capacity and high potential in battle, he often lacks the confidence to fight his enemy.

Abilities

Rudeus is a powerful magician born with a strong Laplace factor which is one of the reasons for his great magical power besides his intense training at an early age. As he was reincarnated from another world, he is immune to Orsted's curse. This is a trait that is inherited by his descendants.

  • Voiceless Incantation
    • Rudeus is one of the few people capable of using a voiceless incantation, and even rarer as a person who can use voiceless incantation with melded magics.  He cannot use voiceless incantation for healing magic due to his lack of understanding in regards to how mana is manipulated to heal. A normal Magician takes at least five seconds for a simple spell, while for higher-level spells its thirty to sixty seconds. Rudeus can do it almost instantly no matter what difficulty of the spell, with the exception of healing magic. Rudeus needs to use the chant of a new spell being taught to him before he can use its voiceless incantation version which puzzles Orsted.
  • Demon Eyes
    • 『Foresight』
      • It's a Demon Eye that Kishirika gave to Rudeus for giving her food replacing his right eye. It allows the user to see a certain amount into the future. It is difficult to adjust the focus point; the farther into the future he looks, the more unreliable it becomes. The power of Demon Eyes are adjusted according to the amount of mana poured into them. The more mana Rudeus inputs into the Foresight Demon Eye, the farther into the future he can see. Rudeus is able to fine-tune the eye to see 10 seconds into the future reliably.
      • Experienced warriors can negate the Demon Eye's usefulness in battle by making split-second decisions, forcing the eye to see multiple futures. This is learned when Rudeus duels Ruijerd. Some beings such as Badigadi are completely immune to the eye when wearing the Fighting God Armor. The eye can also act as a conduit for another being's power as Hitogami was able to show Rudeus a vision of where to find Aisha and Lilia through his eye. Another weakness of the eye is that it does not pick up sounds and as such, Gyes was able to incapacitate Rudeus using Howling magic.
      • Overuse or losing control of the eye may cause the user some sort of pain and nausea as a result of overloading the brain. This is shown when Rudeus felt a moment of extreme nausea after Hitogami used the eye to show him a vision of the future, or when he originally received the eye and it took him a while to learn to control it since it would give him a double vision.
    • 『Clairvoyant』
      • It's a second Demon Eye that Kishirika gave to Rudeus for giving her a donut when she is captured by Atofe replacing his left eye. It allows the user to see far away. However, the "focus point" is difficult to control. Rather than acting as a scope, the Clairvoyant Eyes seem to change the perspective of one's vision, with the amount of mana determining the distance from the user.
  • Magic
    • While Rudeus is a pacifist and doesn't like fighting in general, when he does, he is a formidable opponent. He is capable of casting magic simultaneously in both hands as well as cast melded magic in an instant. With his scientific knowledge from his previous life and creativity, he always strives for developing more efficient magics for himself to use. Most of the spells he uses a lot, like Stone Cannon, have been stated by Badigadi to have an Emperor-class level of power. Initially, when he was a child, he mostly used water magic. However, as an adventurer, Rudeus primarily used earth magic such as Stone Cannon and his namesake, Quagmire to hinder and slow down his enemies.
    • His total magical power has been stated by Orsted, Kishirika, Badigadi, and Perugius Dola to be greater than that of Laplace. He was able to create a nuclear explosion, an extension of fire and air melded magic similar to that of the firework used in Roa, in his fight against Orsted. According to Orsted, this magic could be considered God-class magic. Rudeus also uses Earth Magic to make figures which Zanoba and Perugius takes interest in.
    • His rankings as a magician are as follows:
      • «Water Emperor Ranked»
      • «Earth Saint Ranked»
      • «Wind Saint Ranked»
      • «Fire Saint Ranked»
      • «Healing Magic - Saint Ranked»
      • «Detoxification Magic - Saint Ranked»
      • «Barrier Magic - Intermediate Ranked»
      • 『Nuclear Explosion』: Unofficial God-class magic(stated by Orsted) that Rudeus created in a desperate attempt during his fight against Orsted. By focusing a tremendous amount of magic power at a designated area, he creates a huge explosion around his pinpointed target and leaves behind a mushroom-like cloud similar to a nuclear explosion. During the second confrontation with Orsted, he managed to destroy a village with this magic. Even with Orsted opening the First Dragon Gate to tremendously lower its power, the explosion was still packed with power similar to Laplace. It is hinted that this is a Fire-type magic.
      • 『Ran Ma』- Disturb Magic: It is a unique magic that Rudeus learns after observing Orsted in their first fight and works by interfering with the magic of the opponent disturbing it thus preventing it from working. This is a very rare and difficult technique as Sylphiette, who is a talented mage in her own right, had a lot of trouble learning it.
      • 『Dry Steaming』: Dry Steaming is a melded magic of fire and wind originally developed by Rudeus to dry wet clothes with a risk of damaging the fabric.
      • 『Explosive Stone Cannon』: It is a variation of Stone Cannon originally developed by Rudeus. The stone is hollow thereby exploding at the point of contact.
      • 『Electric』: Realizing that 『Lightning』 might be a bit overkill as a single target spell, Rudeus weakened the King-class Water magic. Rudeus was able to use Voiceless incantation to create a miniature thundercloud, compressing it, and designating a target for 『Lightning』. In order to distinguish it from the normal overpowered spell, he named it 『Electric』. The Electric strike is hard to avoid and can numb the nervous system, making it a very useful spell against people who can wear Touki. It is effective against the Immortal Demon Race as demonstrated in the battle against Atofe.
      • 『Light Spirits』: Rudeus can make a light spirit scroll and use them to summon bright light spirits as a source of light.
      • 『Howling Magic』: Howling is a type of magic that can locate or paralyze enemies by using sound as a medium, but Rudeus can only use it to surprise or scare opponents. He learned it from Gustav Dedorudia.
  • Fighting Style
    • 『Sword Techniques』
      • Intermediate-ranked Sword God Style
      • Elementary-ranked North God Style
      • Elementary-ranked Water God Style
      • Since Rudeus cannot make use of Touki, he cannot rise to Advanced ranked Sword Techniques.
    • 『Saint Dragon Battle Aura』
      • Saint Dragon Battle Aura is a fighting style that was created by Dragon God Urupen, who was considered to be the weakest Dragon God due to having the lowest magical capacity ever and rose to become the strongest with this fighting style. It involves defeating an opponent using the minimal amount of magical power. It is described as a fighting style by Rudeus that combines magic arts and the real world martial art Wushu.
      • Rudeus is currently being taught how to use this fighting form by Orsted. This fighting technique is the best fighting style for Rudeus due to it's great compatibility with the 『Magic Armor』, making the 『Magic Armor』 performance more potent, efficient, and useful during combat. It should be noted that it is a fighting style and not a type of touki as Rudeus lacks the ability to use actual touki.
    • 『Tactics』
      • He has been noted by others to be a battle genius. During his first fight with Paul, he was smart enough to trap Paul's leg to restrict his movements. During his time as an adventurer, he was known for his skill with Quagmire and trapping opponents with earth magic before attacking. After training with Orsted, he became more aware of his tactics and was able to perform the strategies more efficiently since he was conscious of them.
      • In the case that he is trapped by a high level barrier magic that restricts his magic, he will use the Manatite stone to destroy the seal and use a combination of Quagmire, Mist, and Electric to slow down or disable his opponents before using a summoning scroll to summon his trump card, the Magic armor MK I, to defeat his enemies should the need arise for the fire power. Taking stories and legends from his previous world, he was also able to come up with a strategy to defeat a hydra that could regenerate its heads.
《Equipment》
『Arrogant Water Dragon King』 (Aqua Heartia)
Arrogant water dragon king.webp
An expensive staff was gifted to him by Eris on his 10th Birthday. The material of the wand is made from a rough and bony wood that comes from a tree called 『Elder Torrent』, that grows in the large forest of the Eastern region of the Mills Continent.
  • The Wand will become a subspecies after it drinks from the Faeries' Spring. The tip of the staff is adorned with a large Magical stone that is the size of a fist that comes from a stray dragon located in the Begaritt's continent. The maker is from the Asura kingdom palace's Magic team, a wand-maker(Rod Director) called Chein Procyon. A wand's rank is determined by the wood and the Magic rock, both of which are A-ranked materials. The Magic Stone alone is at least worth over 100 Asuran Gold Coins.
  • The wand has a lot of sentimental value to Rudeus, as Ruijerd was able to see how important it was to Rudeus and convinced him to not sell it so that they could take Ruijerd to the Mills Continent the legal route; instead, Ruijerd agreed to enlist the services of a smuggler even though they would be getting involved with people who would harm children, which is against Ruijerd's warrior code. Rudeus commonly calls it his friend and has a few nicknames for it. Although his power has outgrown the staff's abilities, he will still occasionally use it during important battles. The Staff is normally kept in his room as a decoration due to Rudeus who usually uses 『Shotgun Cannon』 as his main weapon. Arrogant Water Dragon King is given to Lara Greyrat when she leaves the house along with Leo.
  • Magic amplification coefficient:
    • Water Magic: 5 times
    • Earth Magic: 3 times
    • Wind Magic: 3 times
    • Fire Magic: 2 times
『Mana Absorbing Stone』
A stone made from the Manatite Hydra's body. From Rudeus' testing of the stone, there is a front and back of the stone. When mana is applied to the back of the stone, a high pitched sound would ring out and the front of the stone will emit magic canceling wave that is similar to 『Ran Ma』. The stone does not actually absorb mana and its magic breakdown power is similar to the Disturb Magic; however, the stone also requires an almost equal amount of magic power to negate attacking magic. But, the stone is more effective than 『Ran Ma』 due to its capability to cancel completed magic. Magically created objects like dolls that have their mana stabilized will not be destroyed by the waves, but magic attacks that do not have their magic stabilized will be destroyed. Magic Circles will not be destroyed by the stone, but the barriers created will. By inserting the stone into the 『Zariff's Prosthetic arm』, it can be an effective tool at the cost of magic-less effective from that arm.
『Zariff's Prosthetic Arm』
From Zanoba's research of the doll left by the previous owner of Rudeus' house, Zanoba with the help of Cliff were able to create an artificial prosthetic arm. With the chant, "『Oh Earth, become thine Arm.』", the magic tool can be activated, and can be deactivated with the chant 『Oh Arm, return to Earth』. It can also allow the wearer to feel tactile feedback from the fingers and even has the strength to restrain Zanoba's Miko Power. The arm can also fly out as a Rocket Punch. It was used as the replacement of Rudeus' left hand that was lost in the fight against the Manatite Hydra and continued to function as a Rocket Punch gauntlet, after all of his limbs were restored by Orsted's King Class Healing Magic, until its capabilities were replaced by the second version black 『Magic Armor』. He still wears them as gauntlets and he has one for both hands.
『Dragon Tribe's Robe』
Its crest was engraved by Dragon God with the ability to block Hitogami's future foresight from seeing the future of the wearer, effectively blocking Hitogami's view of Rudeus's immediate surroundings. Orsted gave it to Rudeus after they started working together.
『Magic Armor』
  • Magic Armor 『MK. I』
    • The prototype was created under the joint cooperation of Zanoba and Cliff. Its height is a little less than 3 meters. The right hand was affixed with a Stone Gatling Cannon and the left hand was affixed with a shield and a Magic Absorption Stone.
    • Although its mana consumption was quite high, it was considered to hold defensive and offensive power similar to that of the Seven Great World Powers, It was specifically created in order to fight Dragon God Orsted, though it was still kept in use after that. It was destroyed by the Fighting God during the Battle of Biheiril Kingdom.
  • Magic Armor 『MK. II』
    • It was a complete set that could be separated into arm parts, leg parts, and torso parts. It was a jet-black armor and helmet. A smaller version of the『MK. I』. If worn, it could provide physical ability similar to that of a Saint Ranked swordsman.
  • Magic Armor 『MK. Zero』
    • The decisive battle weapon of Rudeus was created for the Battle of Biheiril Kingdom. It is a stronger version of the『MK. I』, although it consumes double the mana.
  • Magic Armor 『MK. III』
    • The Magic Armor was used by Rudeus during his last years. Its height was a little more than 2 meters and its ability was the same as the『MK. I』.
    • This Magic Armor became the basis for the mass-production of the All-Purpose Magic Armor Series later on.
『Summoning Scrolls』
Each scroll has a one time use and can be used to summon the 『Magic Armor Mk I 』. He also is able to create scrolls that link to hidden locations, in the event he needs to make a quick escape.
『Gatling Gun』
only Rudeus can handle, for the fight against Orsted. This weapon is able to fire off 10 of his standard 『Stone Cannon』 per second. Rudeus only uses this weapon in conjunction when wearing the 『Magic Armor Mk I 』. Rudeus defeated Atofe using this weapon by three steps:
  1. In the first step, Atofe's armor was smashed into several small pieces.
  2. In the second step, Atofe's shoulder was torn to pieces.
  3. In the third step, Atofe's upper half of the body became full of holes that were blown off and separated from her lower half.

After Atofe realize that 『Magic Armor Mk I 』 wasn't the Fighting God Armor, she pointed out the difference in color and that the 『Gatling Gun』 didn't exist at that time.

『Shotgun Cannon』
A weapon that Rudeus develop after taking Orsted suggestion about the Gatling gun to make it fire multiple stone cannons in one shot to counter Water God Style practitioner. This weapon is currently replacing 『Arrogant Water Dragon King』 as his main weapon when not wearing 『Magic Armor Mk I 』. Rudeus stated that this weapon is a very user-friendly weapon.
『Lithograph Stone』
Based off of the seven powers stone created by Technique God, Orsted created a stone that would allow long-range communication through writing on the Large Stone. Anything written on the main stone will appear on the sub-stones. Having a main and a sub-stone for the other person's main stone will allow for long-range communication. The stone also requires a bit of magic to actually use so it is not a widespread tool.
『Scroll Vernier』
The second Roxy made machine. A tool that was mounted on the back of the MK II. It has a bulky steampunk look to it that carries folded scrolls ready for activation. If a button near the waist is pressed with magic power, a corresponding slot with a scroll is automatically activated. There are 5 slots by each hand with a total of 10 types of scrolls.
『The Bone Ring of Laxus』
The Ring was given to him by Death God Randolph to show to Kishirika to gain favor. Kishirika told Rudeus to keep it since it may be useful. The Ring was originally owned by Death God Laxus who created the ring to kill the Dark King Vita. The ring works by using the death of the person the ring's holder relied on the most to break the illusion. The spiritual form of the Ring is a dirty black skeleton with a crown. The ring would not activate without the Ring's holder having experienced such a death. For Rudeus, that death was Paul's and an image of Paul's death appeared in each dream showed by the Vita. The ring caused Dark King Vita to self destruct and die. The ring broke after fulfilling its purpose.
『Atofe-hand』
A gift from Atoferatofe given to Rudeus, a wooden box that contains flesh from Atofe. After getting both of his arms cut off by North God Kalman III and former Sword God Gal Farion, Atofe-hand attached itself to Rudeus. It looks obsidian black and is hard as stone, Rudeus describes it as stronger than Zariff's Prosthetic Arm.
Wooden Pendant
A pendant hand made by Sylphiette for Rudeus' 10th birthday at the suggestion of her father that is a good luck charm handed down in their family then Lilia is supposed to send it to Rudeus but the Teleport Incident occurred.  Lilia holds on to the pendant until Rudeus rescues her and Aisha in the Shirone Kingdom but didn't tell him it was made by Syphiette and when Elinalise Dragonroad sees the pendant she shows it matching emblem engraved on her sword. Rudeus later realizes that Sylphiette made the pendant when they were at the Forest of Hail.

Controversy

On February 8, 2021, before the premiere of the fifth episode, the series was suspended from the Chinese streaming network Bilibili due to controversial content described as "immorality" by some critics, most prominently a streamer named LexBurner, who called the anime "for bottom-feeders in the social hierarchy," which led viewers to leave low reviews for the anime on the streaming site. This also led to LexBurner, one of Bilibili's top streamers, being banned from the site. Later, author Rifujin na Magonote commented on LexBurner's actions as follows: "His words are only his personal opinion, and he is free to hold whatever views he likes. Although I am displeased at how he has insulted other viewers, anime is not just made for successful people, so I hope that those who can enjoy it will enjoy it." He further commented: "If that is the kind of online presence he is, that's just the way it is sometimes. Even in Japan, there are plenty of people like him, although they might not have his influence. As far as I am concerned, instead of engaging with him, I think it is more important to ignore him and grow your own communities. Thank you!"

The series has also received user criticism in China for containing perceived misogynistic comments and content.
