The Darkness was Comfortable for me

Summary:

“I will have the 1,000 people I have chosen go to a parallel world.”

Chaos spread once those words of God were displayed to the whole world.

Kurose Hikaru, whose childhood friend had been chosen, was killed together with her on the same day she was supposed to be transferred. However, for some reason, Hikaru didn’t die and, even though he wasn’t chosen at first, he ended up as one of the [Otherworlders that will have all their actions live broadcasted to Earth].

Transferred without any preparations at all to that accursed land, he faced threats innumerable times and somehow managed to survive with his Gift, the Dark Spirit Abilities. 

“I must not die. I am sure the people on Earth are all rooting for me after all…” 

This is the story of a young boy who is tossed about by the gazes of the viewers, yet eventually manages to raise his head and walk forward.

  1. DARKNESS IMPRISONING ME!
    Let it pile up a bit. I just hope that it’s not a virgin harem kind like someone above called it.

  2. How many chapters is the prologue? I kinda wanna read it all at once before I decide whether to stick with this.

  3. Me está gustando la historia muchas Gracias Regokai-Sama.

    Interesante que su habilidad pueda revivir a seres, pero también siento que debido a su habilidad será rechazado.

  4. Thank you for introducing me to this work reigokai-shi. The first 5 chapters had me hooked on so much that i went ahead and read up till the latest raws. This is truly a great work better than, if i may say so, all the other works being translated on novelupdates.
    For those who decide on following this series, strap up. This’ll definitely be a joyous ride.

    1. So… since there’s illustrations of the cute Celica-chan, does the mean the twins might be joining? And my fantasizing of what they look like is completely destroyed… only Celica looks absolutely adorable…

    2. Karen look like the lazy kind of genius, one that does everything on the very last second, while Celica looks like a strict secretary of some sort.

    3. Hikaru looks Like Edward Scissors hands.

      I just want to pet Grapeful😐so I get Jeanne’s reaction now.

      Nanami is the library girl so cute in her own way but I was looking forward to the butt kicking marine Nanami so we could do a before and after .

      Celica looks…like a semi goth troublemaker. Still cute though.

      Karen looks like the confused ditzy type until she is given a specific task.

      Thank you very much for the pictures😍. Nice job 👍🏽 👍🏽👍🏽

  5. I just want to tell u all, this wn is so boring and slow, author just made one chapter talking like chat room is that made sense?, is he idiot. Authors just try to spin off as he can to made one chapter become long. I hate this wn, Chinese wn is better from this wn.

    1. Jesus dude chill, no need to hate on it directly on reigokai’s site, he’s working hard to translate novels like these and you’re here critizing the novels that he himself enjoys to translate bruh :V. Comments like these are why translators lose motivation to translate novels they like.

    2. Chinese wn is to edgy and aggresive, the plot is mostly same even in same novel. it so boring as fuck, i can exchange the mc and will not notice the difference. the only one i like is Ancient Strengthening Technique because the Mc is having growth. it’s first time, i saw mc breaking through his culvication after he saw his first children.
      author try to spin off as he can made one chapter become long?
      considering wuxia CN novel are around 2000 to 3000 chapter, i think you barking to wrong tree here. ah but then pov chapter is rare for wuxia so they could milk more actually.
      Also it logical to have forum for people who watch their Isekai life that being streamed, just like there is comment section in this novel website.

    4. I was going to talk about how you were right to have an opinion (even tho it’s invalid) but after looking at your profile the other guys were right

  6. Thanks for translating this. I’m enjoying the story. Hopefully Hikaru catches a break soon and finds some happiness (with Rifreya).

  7. This has been a fun story so far, character growth is
    Moderate but at an acceptable level. Honestly I thought it would be darker.

    1. Hey dude. Just wanted to ask something. If you are caught up with the release Does this novel still follow the harem route? and how’re things going currently?
      That’s a cool illustration
