As the most powerful being of all time, the demon lord Varvatos considers life to be extremely boring. When he takes matters into his own hands and decides to reincarnate himself, he calibrates his magical power so that it is perfectly average. But he could not have foreseen that everyone in the modern world would be damn weak, which means that he is once again completely overpowering!
Born under the name Ard, does he have ladies who adore him, the royal family begging him to be the next king, and an ex-Minion who insists on killing him? But Ard only thinks of one thing, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his ultimate goal!
