Born with vague memories of a past life in contemporary Japan where he failed to do anything useful, he is determined not to make the same mistake again, and that this time, his life will be lived.

Saihate no Paladin is among the better isekai novels, and lot of it is thanks to how it build its protagonist.

While the opening was a clear 10/10 when compared to most isekai, the later development in my eyes took a huge dump on the foundation laid out in the first arc.

The first arc, that is the childhood arc has a wonderful and emotional buildup that also clearly sets the main character on his path. It has great character development, making the unavoidable sacrifices all the more sad. Besides that, I also liked how it tackled the ...
