    I just started reading this & it seems it has potential, many will compare it to Mushoku Tensei but ill giv it a chance.

    Gonna Continue Reading now

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Thank you for your kind words and I hope you will like it 🙂

    Hello, thank you for your hard work. I would like to quickly mention a reoccurring error in your grammar, you continuously misuse “of-course” as “off-course”. Just a minor thing, but probably something you want to nip in the bud before it progresses into a full blown habit.

    I won’t even mention the early resemblance to Mushoku Tensei because I’m sure you’ve heard it a thousand times over,

    Good luck,

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Ah! So it’s “of-course”! So I was right from the start, but got confused because others were using “off-course” instead… 😛

      Cool! I wasn’t sure which one of them is the correct one. Thanks for pointing out, it helps! 😉

      Yeah… I’ve heard about the similarity so many times, it started to just bore me now… Oh well, it’s good people are also taking attention of how good Mushoku Tensie is! 😀

      Thanks for your time and effort, Zion. 🙂

    I have a question is this long term… second does MC get a wife companion or… is he.. well u know… a sad lonely person?

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      is this long term…

      Yes. It is a very, very long term story! 😀 If you go to Phoenix Rising – PDF Downloads, you’ll see more information about it.

      second does MC get a wife companion or… is he.. well u know… a sad lonely person?

      He is no sad loner! As the story progresses, he slowly gathers his companions that’ll eventually become his personal army! Oh yeah, some of his companions will also be his future wives later on.

  4. SlyMonster says:

    So you are planning to write aboute 800-900 chapiter
    Are you really sure you have enough motivation for such a long work ?

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Initially, it was an overwhelming thought, but I know it can be done and I’m now driving towards that goal! 😀

  5. Tibet101 says:

    are you the author? or are you just translating?
    and the intro has perked my interest as well as the current number of chapters out 🙂

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      I am the author and no translator (I don’t know any other language except English and Telugu which I can only understand and speak).

  6. Tibet101 says:

    k so far I’ve read up to the 9th ch and i’m starting to see the branching off 🙂 but really i don’t think its a coincidence the beginning were so similar lol….but i like where the story’s going at this point 🙂

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Oh, come on… 😛

      9th chapter, huh…? Well, you still got 86 chapters to read before you catch up to where I’m writing! 😀

      Anyway, it’s good you’re taking liking the storyline so far 🙂

  7. TempesT says:

    Hey! I was wondering what software you use to create the pdf version?

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      I use Adobe Acrobat XI Pro and it isn’t a free program, but you could get it cracked from torrents online.

  8. Mirado says:

    I’m impressed with your work and even more with the many chapters you made. Most good story’s don’t really have many chapters, since the author is dropping them sooner or later.

    Now what I like at your story:
    – A very good story. I can understand why the people would compare it to MT, but as you said many times in your comments, the direction changes after chapter 8. There are still some similaritys but I like them and your ideas are very good.

    – In your story you can actual feel with the MC and see him growing up. He doesn’t really act out of character and stays with his principles. I don’t mind the slow progress. Personally I love it when the character gets more depth to them.

    -Your world is living! That is the best description my 3rd rate English can give it. Even your side characters have a personality and it looks like they stay with it. Your world has a history and a development (like the changes in the village after the monster attack).

    Now some critic.
    There are some minor typos, but since I only have a bit school English I probably don’t even notice much of them.

    What I think is more important is the time. I’m currently on chapter 99 and thankful that a few chapters ago you finally decided to explain the time in this world. Wouldn’t it be possible to do this sooner? For example in a lesson with the house maid? Then without giving spoilers… why do they take so much time with reaching there destination on his first travel??? Shouldn’t they make haste and go as fast as possible?

    So overall: Your story captured me and I read the 99 chapters in two days and as soon as I click on “Post Comment” I will continue to read. The hard part on it… is to find it. If a friend hadn’t given me the link, I wouldn’t have found it. So I will do my best to share the link with whoever I know 🙂

    Sry for my bad English but I hope I could tell you what I know and that you understood that I think that your story is awesome!

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      This has got to be the BEST COMMENT EVER!! 😀

      Sorry I didn’t get to answer last night, but I had to go to sleep. So that’s why I’m responding now.

      I am super glad the story was so appealing and good for you 😉

      Yes, I know about the typos. I’ve noticed them as well, but I decided against it. This was because it is more tiring to proofread a chapter rather than writing it. So I will fix it all once it’s all done.

      As for time… Hmm… Actually that was just the brief introduction into the time (like year, month and date). It gets fully covered later in the story.

      Anyway! Thanks for loving the story! and hope you will continue to like it! 😉

  9. Good work 🙂 A new type of Fantasy Story i read after a long time ….
    Its nice to see a countryman is working in Light novel also . Feel proud .
    Currently read upto 22 chapter hope to finish them all in 2 -3 day 🙂 mc is a good Indian boy :))

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Thank you very much and I hope you like the rest of the chapters! 😉

  10. becool says:

    hmm i’m just at the start but i’m glad there is a lot more to read and even though i haven’t gone through it all i can say this story have great potential plus your speed of updating is great (i hope you can keep updating at the same speed xd) and i saw you posted it at royaldl and hope it gets much attention / plus iwanted to point that if you’re going to change stuff in the earlier stories (if there is inconsistensies in the latter chapters) you can put some type of index of the chapters that you changed since i think some of us downloaded the pdfs before you did that so i would like to read the storie as you intend for it to be
    .in the end i’m glad i stumbled on your fanfic and hope you can keep up the good work

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Glad you’re liking it and thank you 🙂

  11. Allecrast says:

    Hello there Vijay, glad I could find this hidden gem, I haven’t read any of the chapter, but based on the reviews it seems has a lot of potential, moreover it’s alrd 200+ chapters! Quick request though, is it possible for you to have a bundle release in e-book format? like .epub/.mobi? Some of us prefer to read it on reader app, Just letting you know about this! THanks a lot man!

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Hey there.

      The reviews are mixed up so yeah… I think it’s better to try this jem before first, but others r liking it (there are a few) 🙂

      .epub/.mobi? I usually release them in PDFs, but I’ll see what I can do about it.

  12. Rayz0676 says:

    Hey when will you update the new chapter after the 220…just asking btw..can’t wait for next

  13. Yer i plan on posting your new chapters on reddit light novels in English section but coming to ask for your permission and and if i have permission do u want me to just put your username Vijay Kakani as author? not sure if its your real name or fake if u don’t wish to disclose either way doesn’t matter to me.

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Yes. By all means, go ahead posting them on there. I don’t see the problem in it 🙂
      Ah, yes. Vijay Kakani is my real name, so there’s no problem in using that name 🙂

  14. wait just to clarify your chapters won’t go to reddit but there will be a reddit post with links back to here informing people of your book if you already know what i mean all good otherwise here is a link for an example your one will be in english section though not chinese

    1. Vijay Kakani says:

      Okay. That’s alright. I don’t see any issues with that 🙂

        1. Vijay Kakani says:

          Ah! I’m sure I’ll receive mostly negative comments there, but oh well. I will still thank you for taking the time to do this! 🙂
          By the way, how often will you update the chapters on there?

          1. ive ticked to recieve an email as soon as ur post updates so unless im asleep or not at home within 10 minutes

        2. Vijay Kakani says:

          Oh, I see. That’s fast, much faster than what I do for making PDFs when new chapters get released.
          Anyway, I hope you’re liking the story as well to have taken the trouble to receive notifications of new comments and chapters through email.
