- I Kept Pressing the 100-Million-Year Button and Came Out on Top (Title used by Yen Press for their licensed translation of the LN)
A mysterious old man approached the Swordsman who is on the verge of dropping out of his academy with the “100 Million Years Button”. A magic button, when pushed, will have the same effect as having trained for 100 Million Years. The Failed Swordsman doubtfully pushed the button, and the very next moment he felt a tremendous power surging through his body. Thus he pushed the button many times over – he spammed it.
It was a cursed button. The moment he pushed it, he was trapped in a “Time Prison” of 100 million years. 100 years passed, he was fortunate enough to train. 1000 years passed, and he had forgotten why he was swinging the sword. 10 000 years passed, and he had stopped thinking.
100 000 000 years later, he became a fleeting existence and finally returned to the real world.
At the same time, the memories of 100 million years spent so far were erased, and all that remained were sword skills which were honed to their utmost.
“I can become stronger just by pressing a button!” – he misunderstood and spammed the 100 million years button and each time he would curse at his own foolishness. As he continued to loop through 100 million years of hell, he realized something.
“If I can cut this world, won’t I be able to get out of here…?” Hundreds of millions of years later, he “cuts” the prison of time, and escapes from the 100 million year loop.
This is a story about the Failed Swordsman of the Swordsmanship Academy who manages to clear away the stigma attached to his reputation, displaying his swordsmanship which has been honed to the pinnacle his name will soar to the top of the world.
