Just like how everyone adored heroes in their childhood, a certain young man adored those powers hidden in shadows. After hiding his strength and living the mediocre life of a mob character by day while undergoing frenzied training by night, he finally reincarnates into a different world and gains ultimate power. The young man who is only playing at being a power in the shadows, his misunderstanding subordinates, and a giant organization in the shadows that gets trampled….. This is the story of a young boy who had adored powers in shadows possibly eventually reigning over the world of shadows in another world.
Personal Thoughts : I have been reading this web novel for quite a while now and I would say it is right up there among the very best for me along with overlord and how to pick up girls in a dungeon. The MC, even though is OP, isn’t bland like others I have read. This mc is a breadth of fresh air with how proactive he is. The novel takes misunderstandings to a new level and it’s damn funny, action is top notch. To my knowledge only 2 LNs have been released so far so its relatively new. It would be great if this sees the light and we see the light novel version getting officially translated.
License was announced a week ago or so by Yen Press. They're gonna be doing hardcover too for the physical release. https://twitter.com/yenpress/status/1124415194179018752
