I Came Back but the World is Still a Fantasy!?

Toggle Dark Mode:

Author: Tsukimi Cocoa


Schedule: None for now.

When a boy coincidentally fell into a dimension hole, what awaited him was a world of sword and magic.

Two years of tragedies, wars, and schemes, passed until he was finally able to return to Earth.

But when he came back, the world was no longer the same.

A new world with advance technology, Garesto, was now trading with Earth, leading to a complete overhaul of Earth’s technology.

In the long years that have passed and the great changes that have occurred, his family was not left untouched.

His parents were now divorced. His siblings were now strangers. And all his friends were now gone.

He who possessed otherworldly power and knowledge hid himself for various reasons. But though he was able to somehow pull the wool over the world’s eyes, there were still those who noticed him.

This is a tale that came to be because of a boy who came back home.



This series is meant to be read according to release order and not chronology. If you wish to read this according to chronology, use the numbers as reference. Also, the first six chapters are prologues, so they’re a bit more confusing to read, but still do read them, as they’re actually good and not as confusing as it might seem at first.

    Man I’ve been waiting for translation of this series. I’m so happy you picked it up(at least for now it’s not completely dead). First translator of the series just disappeared and rtd picked it up as a side project but not for long… I hope we would be able to follow this story again with new translator! Thank you!!!

    Well thanks for translating this great series, this one seems special since beside magic also invilves social trauma and repercusions for the so called hero summoning.

    I’m very impressed you’ve picking this up, since after reading on RaisingtheDead, I didn’t have much hope for seeing a dedicated translation. This isn’t a quick and easy translation, since aside from a few deliberately short and to the point interlude chapters, most are long and quite complex for a light/web novel. I’m sure it’s going to be challenging and time consuming for you, but I hope you keep it up. I reeeeeally want to see where the author is going with this plot.

    Is it possible to put something in the Ch titles to indicate the release order? That way don’t have to always come back to this page and count to where I am. So when I come back after not having read for a bit, I know properly where I am.

    I’m glad someone is translating this, I don’t find many OP MC novels that I actually like so this is a treat for me so thanks for all the hard work.

    Thanks for the chapters. Had to read it in chronological order to make any real sense of the story but it was a good read. I always feel that excessive use of time shifts in stories serve no real purpose unless it’s a mystery/thriller. This story absolutely didn’t need time shifts. It’s a really good read in chronological order.
