The world is on the brink of destruction after a devastating ten-year war in the "shadow labyrinth." Desir Herrman is one of the last skilled magicians left standing, but even he is no match for the formidable foe threatening humanity's very existence. Just when he's certain the end has come, he is sent back in time to his early days of studying magic at the prestigious Hebrion Academy! With this rare second chance, Desir is determined to save not only himself but also the friends and comrades he once lost. Armed with the knowledge of what their future holds, can his efforts make a difference, or are they all doomed to relive the same terrible destiny? Based on the hit novel.

I don't read a ton of manhwa because after you read a few they all feel kinda the same, but this one for sure is one of the best. I can't say that anything it does is super unique but in the general power fantasy manhwa environment I think it's almost more impressive that it can do a concept that's been done so many times and still do it very well. Desir is not your typical overpowered mc. He's so underpowered yet overpowered. He's an anti mage and you get to see him use his knowledge and planning to win fights, not winning with brute read more

I read a lot of power fantasy books and this one has to be the worst by far.

The story is alright, time travel to the past to prevent a future event seen it before.

The art is passable, nothing special though.

But the characters are some of the most basic 2d characters I've ever seen. You got a genius who has little aptitude in magic besides like cancelling spells for some reason (The reason exist but I forgot since I dropped it a while ago), a blue-haired femboy who is good at using a sword, a flat-chested tsudere who can use magic decently (She is read more

Excellent mawha, it has become my favorite.

The fights are getting cooler with each arc and the design is very good. In addition, the story is very interesting and the "dungeons" of this work are very different from other Korean manga.

But the best of all the work is the protagonist. He is not overpower, but he uses his intelligence to be stronger than the others, this is very cool. And besides, he is a very well built character, MC is a good person, but if the situation calls for someone tougher and more manipulative, he takes on that role without any problems.

I recommend give a chance, read more

While the concept of this manhwa is nothing new, the MC's powers creates a very interesting dynamic between his "weaker" self and the more "powerful" peers he has to navigate around. Desir's goals are very clear and he strives to reach them constantly without it becoming something akin to an MMO grind. The rest of the characters also have very interesting arcs which develop naturally throughout the story. The plot is nicely paced and the world-building is very rich and impressive overall. The art is nothing special- expect a typical manhwa art. This is a highly enjoyable series which, while not being a must-read, would read more
