7. The Demon Prince Goes to The Academy
The MC was a third-rate author who died from reading a malicious comment on one of his novels. He was then sent to hell where he got a test, to survive inside one of his novels chosen randomly! But what’s wrong is that this author always writes bad endings except for one and that novel is called [The Demon King is Dead] which is a slice-of-life story where the Demon King is immediately killed off in the prologue. He prays that somehow let him be transmigrated to this novel, and to his surprise, he is sent into the same novel he wanted… but he’s the Demon King’s Son!
6. Academy’s Undercover Professor
He wasn’t reborn with talent or ability, but at least his knowledge from earth allowed him to stay one step ahead in this other world.
Magic exists here, and while science made rapid progress, magic stagnated in the name of tradition. He was able to do things that other wizards couldn’t even imagine by using his earthly knowledge and not being bound by traditional thinking.
Still, becoming an unwitting undercover professor for a mysterious secret society at the prestigious Sören academy was never on his to-do list! Will he be able to deceive both sides and survive through this conundrum?
5. The Author’s POV
“A protagonist is a person whom the world revolves around, someone who defeats all of his opponents, and ultimately gets the beautiful girl. The sole existence all villains fear.”
What about me?
I’m a failed author who had only one success throughout his whole career and reincarnated into my late novel as a mob character. Even in this life, the world didn’t revolve around me. The girls don’t come flocking towards me. As I was rejoicing the fact that I didn’t reincarnate as a protagonist because they are calamity magnets, I didn’t know I would later come to regret these words…
4. My Death Flags Show No Signs of Ending
When he came to his senses, Hirasawa Kazuki, a normal university student, found himself in possession of the body of a game’s character.
Moreover, it was Harold Stokes, the story’s most hated character who was even given the title 『King of Tr*sh』by the players. Myriads of landmines were just waiting for him to step on them!
Will Harold be able to clear the survival route while avoiding the countless death flags in his way?!
3. Trash of the Count’s Family
[The Birth of a Hero] was a novel that followed the adventures of the main character, Choi Han, a high school boy who was transported to a different dimension from Earth, as well as the birth of the continent’s many heroes. And the MC became a part of that novel as the tr*sh of the Count’s family, the family that oversaw the territory where the first village that Choi Han visits is located.
The issue is that Choi Han becomes twisted after that village and everyone in it is assassinated. And the even bigger issue is that this s*upid tr*sh he has become is unaware of what happened in the village and messes with Choi Han, only to be beaten to a pulp.
2. The Main Heroines are Trying to Kill Me
I held back my tears and destroyed the world to save the hopeless Dark Fantasy World, then killed the Demon King and returned.

1. The Villain Wants to Live
Kim Woojin is transported into the game he was creating, by a cruel twist of fate. But to make things worse, he has taken over the body of the game’s infamous antagonist, Deculein von Grahan-Yukline. And that’s not all, he will also inherit the villain’s tangled relationships, blood debts, and chilling infamy.
