Shinichi, an elite class “otaku” with a light novelist father and a game artist mother, has no special talents except for his vast knowledge and opinions on anime. Despite this, the Japanese government gives Shinichi a job as an anime evangelist to the Holy Eldant Empire, a parallel world accessed by a portal in a forest near Mount Fuji. In this fantasy world where dragons soar through the skies, Shinichi forms a strong friendship with a half-elf maid girl and a beautiful young empress. But Shinichi's goals are viewed suspiciously by the different factions, and even Shinichi wonders can anime really foster cultural exchange?


Shinichi Kanou
VA: Natsuki Hanae
The protagonist of this story. He decides to look for a job in order to escape the hikkikomori lifestyle he'd fallen into after entering high-school, but as a result he ends up employed in spreading Otaku culture for the “Holy Eldant Empire”, a fantasy world that's mysteriously connected to Japan. He's a hardcore otaku who's true and honest to his interests.
Myuseru Foaran
VA: Suzuko Mimori
A personal maid who serves in the mansion prepared by the Holy Eldant Empire for Shinichi. She's very diligent and devoted to her work, but she's also a bit clumsy. She's a half-elf with human and even blood.
Petralka Anne Eldant the Third
VA: Mai Fuchigami
Emperess of the Holy Eldant Empire, 16 years old. She's rather small and cute for her age, but her breasts aren't very big. She's proactive and brimming with curiosity, so she's curious about importing Otaku culture and proactive in supporting Shinichi.
Minori Koganuma
VA: Maaya Uchida
Ground Self-Defense Forces, Eastern Army, 1st Division, Private First Class. She serves as Shinichi's bodyguard and supervisor in Eldant. She's actually a big fujoshi as well, and was selected by Eldant's Self Defense Force because of (and to make use) of that trait.
Elbia Hanaiman
VA: Sumire Uesaka
A werewolf and a wandering artist. After certain events, she becomes the exclusive illustrator for “Ameutech”, the general entertainment firm where Shinichi serves as general manager.
