Along with the unknown reasons for his reincarnation came the uneasy reality of having to coexist with demons.
He was faced with a world that made him question everything he had believed in.
Gifted with this extraordinary body since birth, Eugene begins walking down the unfinished path from his previous life.
Based on the novel “Damn Reincarnation”:
“Chapter 1: Prologue
I used to think that I was a genius, but when I look back at it now, it’s so embarrassing that I might just go crazy. However, the fact remains, I truly believed that I was a genius.
At the start, I did have enough talent to allow for such a misguided belief. During my childhood, I had no trouble when it came to learning new things, and I was able to improve my skills at a faster rate than others.
However, things were only easy at the beginning. Although I improved faster than everyone else at first, when things really got going, I slowed down to match the others’ pace.
I didn’t think much of it at first since I thought that these things could happen. After all, wasn’t I still improving little by little? I can still do it. Why? Because I’m a genius.
In the end, I was forced to accept the reality that I had tried so hard to reject.
I wasn’t a genius.
It was all thanks to meeting a ‘real’ genius, one who I couldn’t even compare to, that I was finally forced out of this ridiculous and childish delusion.
The me who thought I was a genius was but a frog in a well. Inside the comfort of my little well, I had gotten drunk on a false sense of superiority. Meanwhile, the real geniuses were already flying through the wide-open sky.
I hated that genius.
I felt my killing intent rising whenever I heard him spout nonsense about how anyone could possibly be able to do what he had done if they really tried. Whether or not he really believed what he said, or he was just looking down on the efforts of someone less talented than himself, it still made me feel like shit.
‘Are you jealous?’
Fuck jealousy. You’re the one who started talking shit first. I just returned the favor, so how the fuck am I being jealous?
‘I didn’t think that you’d take it like that. I was just… feeling sorry for you.’
Feeling sorry? What?
‘If you just tried a little harder….’
Just what do you know that makes you think you’re qualified to preach about hard work?
‘You could be a lot better than you are now.’
Hey, I’m doing perfectly fine, thanks. Your standards are just too damn high. Do you really think that everyone can be like you? Since you’re a genius, don’t assume that everyone else is capable of doing what you do.
I can’t be as great as you.

I could barely squeeze out these words. A gaping hole was running through my chest. To try and treat my wound, they were desperately casting magic and pouring out drops of the precious elixir, but it was pointless.
“No, please no.”
She’s crying? I never expected a girl like her to make that sort of expression for me. Even though we argued about everything, and she always had a nasty look on her face whenever she talked to me, I guess she still got a little attached to our quarrels.”
