The adaptation of Mamare Touno's novel begins when 30,000 Japanese gamers are trapped in the fantasy online game world Elder Tale. What was once a "sword-and-sorcery world" is now the "real world." Shiroe, Naotsugu, and Akasuki join together to survive.

The series also starred Jouji Nakata as Nyanta, Daiki Yamashita as Tōya, Nao Tamura as Minori, Tetsuya Kakihara as Lundellhaus, and Eriko Matsui as Isuzu.
