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.

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, ...

So we start with the typical protagonist who regress through time and is given an opportunity to keep his memories and change his previous past mistake and the future.
The story is your typical training, high school arc before it gets to the meat of the actual plot. A lot of cliche are used but not abused.
Sadly, I fail to see anything really special about that protagonist and his teammate as the story telling and world building start to crumble the more the story progress. Power scaling will start to take a turn to some chinese wuxia/xianxia with nothing making sense.
It is like saying, look at ...

Ignore all the window dressing on this story, it's mostly battle Shonen.

The story seems very ambitious at first. It develops multiple relationships, has multiple levels of mystery, a fantasy element, a SF/gaming element, a fighting element, an element of horror/suspense...they basically want to do all the genres.

It works for a while too. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold up in the long run. Shonen style fighting takes over the story to the point that relationships just stop developing. Its rather predictable stuff following Shonen power scaling conventions. It goes on too long with this same pattern and repeats itself too many times.
