Description
Quote:
Do you know how this world ends?

Become the hero and defeat the 72 Demon Lords. The game that boasted as the absolute hardest strategy game, 『Dungeon Attack』.

I used to be the ‘hero’ that had accomplished everything in this game, but after answering a suspicious survey, I found myself in the game as the weakest Demon Lord, 「Dantalian」.

With only my eloquent tongue and my memories of conquest as a hero—.

In order to survive as Dantalian. I shall tear this world apart.

Say the story is very like the King of Battlefield and since it`s also a Korean novel i must ask is this work full of assholes and biches?

Also this looks like Game of Thrones with demons and the MC is kinda of Petyr Baelish lol.

King of the Battlefield, Reincarnator, etc. for the most part use power/strength to subdue their foes(the everyday assholes).

Demon Lord Dantalian is rank 71st of the 72 demon lords. He is the equivalent of the "practice" boss that even an average adventurer could take down.

He immediately finds himself in a checkmated position and can only rely on his eloquence, acting, and scheming ability to pull through. Most of his foes are quite intelligent/strong as well. Most of the characters move for their own benefits rather than just being a jerk to somebody else.

MC has some great "common sense". Also, his interactions with Lala are delicious

I have no idea how to get the raws tbh. It was someone from NU that said that you have to get yourself signed up at Joara for the raws... I myself didn't really try so I can't give any advice on that part. Though I think that the one being translated isn't the web novel but the light novel... So this may be on the wrong part of the forum.

Finished reading the translation of volume one. Both a good writer and a fantastic translation in my opinion. The author uses many allusions and more "grand" rhetorical gestures, in addition to LOTS of banter between MC and Lala, and the translator managed to convey them quite well in English. In particular I thought the translator did a great job with the banter, to the point where I could believe it was originally in English.

The world building isn't anything earth shattering, and the setting of "reincarnated into a low level boss villain" has certainly been done before. That said, I still enjoyed reading the first volume and are looking forward to reading more, mostly for the MC. He strikes an interesting balance of thoroughly amoral but still ethical; I never get the sense that he enjoys being evil or is just evil for evil's sake, but he has no compunction about performing evil acts if it suits his purposes.

That intermission was scary. Especially that one last pic. I had thought the girl would be someone important but I did not think it would be "her."

I already suspected, if you read chapter 2 you'll see that Riff talks about a red haired girl, and in chapter 4 when she is investigating the plague she metions have red hair, and with that personality of hers...Well we all knows how it ends so it's good.
Thanks a lot for the translator for doing this novel, you're amazing man and so is this novel and now MOARR gimme moaarrrr

Started and finished reading it today. Quite nice. Wonder if Barbatrosa and the bat will end up in the harem. The necromancer loli seems very likely. Not that much for the bat.

I would actually bet on the vampire before the necromancer. Once the vampire realizes that the MC has complete disregard for the caste system, she'll understand that their objectives actually align.

Poor Paimon, being drag into the schemes of Ivar and good bye good ol goblin, even though MC spoils her misdeed of the future.

Artist remind me of the art of Cavalier of Abyss and also Owari Seraph.

yup ... she's definitely not Ivan .. it was mentioned already in volume 1 where Ivan's real body is . . . and from reading in between the lines, MC even threatened her not to use her real body or else a much bigger 'problem' would befall her . . besides the pluck-pluck-pluck
