I've been searching for this manga for a while, but can't remember the name. All I remember is that in the first chapter, the main character dies and is reincarnated as a warrior, then works his way up to being called a blade master or sword saint. When he dies, he's again reincarnated and this time tries his hand at magic, being later called a sage or whatever. In his fourth life, he wants to do something different, but I can't remember what.

Any help with locating this manga, or someone confirming I was tripping balls on LSD when thinking of a story like this is appreciated!

  • Hi, welcome to the site. Was this in full colour or mostly black & white? Also, do you remember any other characters in the story? Dec 3, 2022 at 5:04
  • I can't remember any characters since I only read the first chapter. From what I can recall, the first chapter didn't even provide the mc's name since he lived many lives. Also it was definitely black and white Dec 3, 2022 at 12:17

This may be Shijou Saikyou no Mahou Kenshi, F-Rank Boukensha ni Tensei suru: Kensei to Matei, 2-tsu no Zense wo motta Otoko no Eiyuutan.

Aizawa Yuri has reincarnated 2 times now and is dead tired of being the emperor of this and that. Using his skills, he aquired a reincarnation artifact, and starts his life in a brand new world!

Some details don't match, but the general idea of the story does. Aizawa Yuri is a Japanese man in his thirties who is taken to another world; there he learns magic and becomes a master of magic. He reincarnates and learns the sword instead, and becomes a master of the sword (this is the "this and that" in the synopsis)

Main character becomes magic emperor Main character becomes god of swords

The order doesn't match, and he transmigrates rather than dying, but he basically lives 3 different lives there.

The very start of the story is him fighting against a giant monster to obtain a resurrection crystal, which he uses to reincarnate and live a fourth life, where he more or less tries to be unremarkable.
