What is the plot of Reborn to Master the Blade?
In a sword-and-sorcery fantasy world, the Hero-King Inglis becomes a divine knight and slays the enemies of humanity and the dark gods in order to establish the Kingdom of Silvare. But he didn’t do this alone. The goddess Alistia aided Inglis in his quest for peace.
Inglis managed to reach a ripe old age and even though he managed to create a peaceful world, as he lay on his deathbed he realized he had one regret – that he had never mastered the sword.
As a last favor granted to Inglis, Alistia decides to reincarnate Inglis so he can have a second chance at life and fulfill his dream of becoming the most powerful swordsman in the world. Unexpectedly, he’s reborn as a woman (perhaps the jesting whims of the goddess). Inglis won’t let this unforeseen obstacle stop him from trying to reach his goal, however, and continues to work towards his goal while trying to get used to being a woman.
