Synopsis: Once before, Seven mythical Gods appeared on Earth.Their battle split the earth and tore the sky. 10 years after the battle, the calamity should have been long gone already.
However. A boy named Shinsen Raika had his true little sister abducted by a god in the battle and was currently standing in the『Academy』on an artificial island in the distant seas.
Here, the night was called as after school time. During that time period, the 『Gods’ Proxy War』 were being held by using Divinity-Compatible people for gaining the seat of the law of world (The supreme God).
On the first night, Raika was attacked by a Norse mythological God called Brynhildr. Facing death in front of himself he acquired the detestable power of gods, the power for revenge.
「Become my slave! Give me not just your hands and legs, but also your fingers, toes, and even your soul!」.
Absolute Domination, using that power from the devil eye of Balor, he tries to take back the world from Gods control. A new mythical heroic saga of a devil eye-user person swearing to take revenge on Gods begins now! (taken from Novel Updates)
My pitch: Mythology reference-heavy action series. MC's only godly power is the Evil Eye granted by Balor, but he refuses to get more power from him due to his hatred for the gods. So he essentially has to rely on his own abilities as a human being (though some exorcist training helps) to match the requirements to utilize this power. There's also some political intrigue as the MC's motive for infiltrating the school where this war takes place is to investigate an organization that got a lot of power after the advent of the gods. But the main reason I want this one is because of the mythological references, as I'm a huge fan. It really reminded me of Campione and the Nasuverse.
Edit: added NU, LNDB and Bookwalker links
I really want this one too. Up-vote!
