This is the story of a young slave gladiator in an underground arena. He doesn't know about his past or how he get there, only that his name is Eigil, and that he is strong.
One day, he kills the boss and escapes outside, joining a band of mercenaries as a new recruit. During one mission, they encounter the vampire, Lucy, who slaughters the band with her inhuman strength. After learning that Eigil only knows how to kill, Lucy lets him stay at her house, educating and take care of him.
Two years pass, and on the day of Eigil's departure, they both exchange a promise that if Eigil becomes a king and owns the land of Erg forest, he can come and take her as his woman. Making this his life goal, Eigil set out on a journey to become a hero, a king, and found his own kingdom.

The main character is not another shounen character, but an actual man. This means he kills people (oh noes) and actually has sex (no nose bleeds here). He is upfront and honest about his feelings and desires, which makes him a rather straightforward and real character. The story is interesting but somehow seems to just fall short of being really good. The best way I can describe it is rather than being a story it is more of porn with plot. This means it fails to be porn, and fails to be a great story. Overall, I like it, think it is better than shounen crap, and will continue reading it, but don't think it deserves a 10.

This review was written at Chapter 15, so some allowance for the story may be allowed for setting up the plot. As such, this review may be edited once the translations progress.

(Chap 9) Incredible potential. A mature tone that rivals the best light novels

Only a few chapters out. But as someone who's read them all (light novels, anyway), this looks like it can eventually rival Mushoku Tensei and Risou no Himo in scope, adult themes, and epic content.

The student-mentor relatioship is reminiscent of Natsu no Zenjitsu, and it looks like it might take that turn, though it doesn't forshadow unrequited love.

A truly seinen web novel.

Side note:
The quality of translation is spectacular, props to Larvyde for doing such an easy to digest translation without leavig too much meaning lost in translation. Blows the translation of Arifureta out of the water haha
