Programmer Ichirou Suzuki is transported to another world. In a foreign land, he finds that life is an adventure that's sometimes fun, sometimes serious, and full of girls! Living in a gamelike fantasy world, Satou Suzuki is in no hurry to get back to his "death march" at home. He's content to take in the sights of Seiryuu City, go to a play with his friend Zena, and take care of the five girls in his party. After he discovers one of them was summoned from Japan like him, though, he prepares for a journey to learn more--until another friend is kidnapped by an evil sorcerer!

Twenty-nine year old Satou just closed his eyes for a brief nap at work, but when he opened them, he found himself in a game-like alternate world. Fortunately, thanks to some excellent luck, his level is high, and his wallet is full.

After successfully saving the elf girl Mia from the evil Zen, he's set off to accompany her back to her village. Satou is enjoying his break from work and touring a brand-new world, but such a journey couldn't possibly end without a little adventure, right?

What's a journey without a few bumps in the road?

All Satou wants is a leisurely vacation from the real world, but this time, his travels lead his party into the famously dangerous Muno Barony. Satou may be level 310, but even he has his hands full with giants, four-headed monsters, and haunted fortresses! He still finds time to help out the locals along the way, though, and when one of those people in need is Baron Muno's beautiful daughter, he may be the only one who can stop a terrible conspiracy...
