    I'm almost caught up with the fan-translation of this and I've really liked it so far. The MC is trapped in a game he knows well in a villain's body who filters every good thing he wants to say into something mean. He tries to change events enough so that he is not killed, yet tries to make sure some game events still happen so that the hero still wins. He is an overpowered protagonist, but he worked hard every day to become that way.

    It's different from other trapped in a game novels like SAO and Log Horizon because he is not in the body of an avatar he created or as himself, but instead in a villain character whose personality we're not sure to treat as the MC's or as a separate personality pressuring the MC.

    Apparently there's an upcoming manga adaptation of Death Flags, for Mangabox.

    The original webnovel is still ongoing, but the author posts new chapters at a very slow rate ever since 2017, with hiatuses of 1-5 months between chapters. Likely Vol 5 hasn't come out because there isn't enough material for publication.
