By some ill fortune, Hikaru died in a traffic accident. He was in heaven standing in line, waiting to be judged, when he took an unexpected invitation to transfer his soul to another world. He received an ability called Soul Board which he could use to allocate points to Skills to make himself more powerful.

But there was a catch…

「I want you to kill someone within an hour. If you don’t, I’ll destroy your soul.」

To pull off the task assigned to him, he poured all his available points to the Stealth skill tree.

This is a story of a boy who specialized in Stealth. With his skill trees as weapons, he would demonstrate his unrivaled strength in another world.

Cover Illustrations

Note: The WN and LN differ considerably, the LN covers may not properly match what is occurring in the WN we are translating. Thus, these are purely for your enjoyment.


  1. The link to the chapter isn’t here~ 🙁

  2. What are the genres

  3. I Like the start and theme of fiction. Hopes to continue reading it.

  4. I don’t know if it is on purpose or not but nothing after chapter 8 is posted in novel update

  5. The link to chapter 38 of rule breaker links to something else and not the chapter.

  6. Unfortunately the web novel had been discontinued by the author. The last chapter is 378 and updated at 19/7/19. Sadly we will never be able to read this till the end unless some publisher license the LN. I already read up to arc 6 and this WN is very good!

    • Well, it was licensed in Japan back in 2018, and Volume 6 of the LN was announced on the publisher’s Twitter feed three days ago now.

      My understanding from our TL is that while Volume 1 of the WN and LN match up, after that they diverge in significant ways. Sufficiently so that we aren’t going to intersperse the cover illustrations within the ToC, but have them all grouped together under a spoiler.

      That does mean that since it appears we are TLing the WN, if we shift to the LN after completing the WN it’s gonna be a very rough transition…

      • I hope the LN version is also translated, because in LN version hikaru more gentleman and cool

  7. I wish I could japanese…….AAAAA now I’m really curious about the LN and how it differs with the WN, I least I want to know the general arc or the relationship Hikaru have.

  8. LN is the better one than WN cause Lavia seem dont cut her hair

  9. Thank you so much for continuing to put these chapters out! They’ve been great reads while holes up for COVID!

  10. Can someone tell me where do i find all the illustration of this light novel please?

  11. love this so much

  12. Thank you so much!!!
