Amakawa Haruto is a young man who died before reuniting with his childhood friend who disappeared five years ago. Rio is a boy living in the slums who wants revenge for his mother who was murdered in front of him when he was five years old.

Earth and another world. Two people with completely different backgrounds and values. For some reason, the memories and personality of Haruto who should've died is resurrected in Rio's body. As the two are confused over their memories and personalities fusing together, Rio decides to live in this new world.

Along with Haruto's memories, Rio awakens an unknown "special power," and it seems that if he uses it well, he can live a better life. But before that, Rio encounters a kidnapping that turns out to be of a princess of the Bertram Kingdom that he lives in.

After saving the princess, Rio is given a scholarship at the Royal Academy, a school for the rich and powerful. Being a poor orphan in a school of nobles turns out to be an extremely detestable place to be.

After waiting over a year for english translations I began reading both the light novel and the web novel, during that time I found that I lean more towards the light novel's progression of Rio throughout the story.

I have also found the pacing to be too quick sometimes rather than slow, as the progression picks up extremely quickly around volume 4 which I find to be a bit too quick.

Overall however, ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (48/? eps)
Seirei Gensouki gets off to a great start. The first three volumes are fairly interesting and get the series off to a decent start. Near the end of those volumes, though, everything basically stops.

Any character with an ego is portrayed as a bad guy, which means that no characters that you're meant to care about have any personality to speak of. This is typical for an isekai protagonist, but usually the characters around ...
