WeebI'm looking for an isekai where the main character is mistaken for a hero from the past by his maid. He then has sex with the maid, goes to a school, and meets a kitsune girl. I think the maid trains the MC in magic at the beginning, and he gets really powerful.

Nimann_IVSidious says "The Jedi are relentless; if they are not all destroyed, it will be civil war without end. Does this mean that the Sith can only choose between two permanent outcomes (i.e. permanent war or permanent destruction)?
