    Just came across the manga adaptation for this series and it really sold me on wanting the LN with only the ending of chapter 3.

    The manga adaptation is pretty rushed and the translation quality is pretty poor. But I think it's given me a good enough grasp of the setting and the protagonist. For those that like Trinity Seven, I'd say that Haruto is a bit like Arata in how forward he is with being a bit perverted. The heroines are unique and cute while the story is pretty interesting. The basic synopsis for the series seems a bit on the poor side. Rather than him returning to the fantasy world he was originally as a Hero, he actually ends up in another world with its own Demon Lord and Hero just starting his adventure. The protagonist though is more interested in flirting and it's exactly what I crave from romcom series.

    Sam mentioned in the discord that the publisher doesn't have much actively being published so he's not interested in contacting them for just one series. But I thought I'd still give this series support as we can always encourage publishers actively taking requests like Seven Seas.

    So yea, I'm giving this a big thumbs up as a series I want to read.

    I got to be honest this is harem trash. But unlike most harem trash it's enjoyable. It's a guilty pleasure. I would read this. Just...I would never tell anyone that I was reading it.
