    Hopelessly insipid title...to an utterly hilarious novel.

    MC has terminal chunni syndrome...he practices martial arts in secret, to become the (CHUNNI) master of shadows in real life...however, due to giving himself cerebral cuncussion from hitting trees with his head, (in order to develop his Chi...nope, I am NOT making this up) while training buck naked in the forest (still not making this up) he gets hit by a car and reincarnated. (ditto)

    The author or trans has a deadpan delivery for this absurdly hilarious story that is PERFECT!

    Read it NOW! The first chapter alone will have you hooked. I am going to read the mtl, because it is THAT FRICKING GOOD!!!

    That reminds me of a idea I had for a novel. Its about a mc who is a shut in. His parents and everybody looks down on him. They dont know he has been cultivating in his room. He will show his martial arts when his sister gets atacked at her wedding. Feel free to run with that. Im to lazy to write it.

    Nope, I was bored out of my mind, and I saw a stupidly chunni title, and for some reason read it. Giggling like a schoolgirl. ;)

    Try it.

    Meh. Translator dumped TRPG to pick this up, just when it was getting interesting. : ( </pouts>
    Also, misunderstandings drive conflict, not stories. Not my cup of tea, anyway. Humph.

    The shear amount of chuunibyou in this gives me horrible goosebumps, if it weren't interesting I'd drop it that's how severe the chuuni is.

    Shameless advertising, but it needs at least 30 chapters before you can say anything.

    Authors tends to make the first few chapters “the good chapters” to hook readers in. Who knew!?

    Yeah, but at least the Arifureta guy has non-chuuni times.

    Agreed! After I reread "A hero without blood or tear" I'll look at the mtl. (In the toc) I have a good feeling about this. ;)

    You’re right, this is amazing. The best part is how the MC thinks it’s all part of his grand chunni dreams without realizing it’s all true, ahaha. I love misunderstandings like these the best!
