Makoto Misumi is just an ordinary high school student living a regular life, but suddenly he is summoned to the other world to become a "hero."  The goddess of the other world, however, insults him for being different and strips him of his "hero" title and casts him off into the wilderness at the edge of the world. As he wanders the wilderness, Makoto encounters dragons, spiders, orcs, dwarves, and all sorts of non-human tribes. Because he comes from a different world, he can unleash unimaginable magical powers and combat skills. But how will he handle his encounters with various species and survive in his new environment? Makoto tries to transform this other world into a better place, despite the humans and gods that have turned their backs on him.
