    SYNOPSIS
    By some ill fortune, Hikaru died in a traffic accident. He was in heaven standing in line, waiting to be judged, when he took an unexpected request to transfer his soul to a person in another world. He received an ability called Soul Board which he could use to allocate points to Skills to make himself more powerful.

    But there was a catch…

    「I want you to take revenge on someone for me within an hour. If you don’t, I’ll destroy your soul.」

    To pull off the task assigned to him, he poured all his available points to the Stealth skill tree.

    This is a story of a boy who specialized in Stealth. With his skill trees as weapons, he would demonstrate his unrivaled strength in another world.

    This one seems to have gone completely under the radar but it is well worth the read. There are some of the typical cliches you'll find in every Isekai, but it has a few interesting spins to it that make it hard to put down. The main character moves in the background and ends up involved in a lot of important events accidentally as part of a chain reaction of his previous actions and it flows very well. It doesn't feel like random protagonist-kun events at all but more like he causes himself unnecessary trouble each time he does something behind the scenes, despite his desire to remain under the radar. There's quite a lot of world building too and it feels like everything is connected rather well.

    I highly recommend anyone pick this up if they can, and I would love to see an official translation from here since I have read that there are significant differences between the WN and the LN (similar to Spirit Chronicles).

    How can being a knife, be the strongest job ?

    Joke aside it does sound interesting, if it really managed to put a new twist on the cliché it can be cool.
    Does it stay focus on stealth or is it just a gimick at the start ?

    I don't want to be spoil anything so I'll only say that it does focus on the stealth but not how you would expect. And joke or not, his power is definitely the strongest.

    I don't know about this, Rule Breaker isn't exactly the strogest Noble Phantasm.

    Imagine any Noble Phantasm, but it has an invisibility buff.

    @Shaddohh Now I can only think about how much more useful Rule Breaker could have been if Caster had presence concealment.

    Now I can't either, it'd be broken AF. Medea could totally be Assassin class if you think about it.

    Here's some additional info that would be helpful for your post.

    • Official Japanese Publisher Site
    • Japanese Publisher: Shufunotomosha (Hero Bunko is the publishing label rather than the publisher itself.)
    • Japanese Title: 察知されない最強職(ルール・ブレイカー)
    • Romaji Title: Sacchi Sarenai Rule Breaker (I typically avoid fan-translated titles cause the tend to just cause confusion if the series ever does get licensed.)
