Synopsis of Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou, Murabito A ni Tensei suru
As the most powerful entity of all time, Demon Lord Varvatos believes that life is quite boring. When he takes matters into his own hands and decides to reincarnate, he calibrates his magical strength to be perfectly normal. But there is no way he could have predicted that everyone in the modern world would be weak as insects, which means that he is totally dominating the world once again! Reborn under the name Ard, he has women who flatter him, the royal family begging him to become the next king, and a former underling who insists on killing him. But Ard has a one-way mind, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his ultimate goal!
