    Description: Amamiya Hiroto is unlucky. His life consisted of misfortune after misfortune, culminating in an unlucky death during an incident on a school boat trip, trying to save a girl he barely knew. After death, he met a god of reincarnation who requested that the hundred or so dead passengers—one of them being the girl he tried in vain to save—be reincarnated into another world.

    Yet a series of unfortunate events forced Hiroto to reincarnate with even less luck than before, starting with nothing but a tremendous amount of Mana. His second life, far worse than his first, came to a cruel end.

    However, upon meeting the god a second time, he was informed that there would be yet another reincarnation—one that had already been set in motion and could not be stopped. Not wanting Hiroto to live long, the god cursed him before he was reborn in the hopes that he would either die quickly or commit suicide.

    Hiroto was reborn once more as a half-Vampire, half-Dark Elf. A Dhampir. Not wanting a fourth life, he is determined to live this third life with the only things remaining from his previous lives—death-attribute magic and his enormous Mana pool.

    My thoughts:
    A great series. I love the story and characters.
    The main character is just mega unlucky and gets reincarnated not once, but twice. With his third live he has a chance to establish himself but his bad luck is not to be ignored. And even though, he is a caring and thoughtful character.

  • This one has definitely my vote, the web novel translation was so good to read.

    The beginning of it is pretty bad (in the WN, at least, it's pretty brutal/depressing and could have been done better), but if you get past that, it's a really good series that I greatly enjoyed. The webnovel chapters are absurdly long, though, typically 6,000+ words.

    Yeah, the chapters are long, but it's mostly filled with explanations that take up more or less half the chapter on the characters, monsters, skills, etc. still quite an enjoyable story though.

    I have nothing against long chapters, but technical manuals :S

  • @sinnoaria the techincal manual parts are at the very end of the chapters and it's usually stats and an explanation about race and you can just skip right over them.
