Synopsis:

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.

  3. Thanks for translating this

  4. Thanks for translating this!

  5. chapter 20 part 2 and chapter 21 part 1 are missing from the toc now. also,
    Chapter 22 part 2, Chapter 23 part 1, Chapter 23 part 2, Chapter 23 part 1, Chapter 23 part 2,
    chapter 23 is twice. needs to be 24

  6. The illustrations on loading.

  7. too focused on fights & training.
    world exposition feels lacking, usage of time skip feels half baked.
    should’ve known the MC is kinda weird when he can go through 2 billion years of time alone voluntarily would make him a training junkie. there’s literally nothing else inside his head than it.
    makes it less relatable and just kinda repetitive.

  8. Dear Translator,
    I really love this series and I’m happy that you’re continuing to translate it at a rapid pace. Really appreciate your hard work!
    Please don’t quit these series due to the poor reviews on Novel Updates (thise guys are, like, forever-on-their-period or something, always looking to nitpick on any and everything)

  9. Do you have plans to upload the illustrations from each volume? If not, keep up the great work.

  10. I have a question, how many peoples have he killed?

  11. If he gets rid of his naivete and some cliche he might actually become top tier MC

  12. are we getting new chapters soon?
