The official website describes the series as follows:
Living, isn't easy.
When Haruhito awakens, he's in the dark.
He doesn't know where he is, why is he here, and where he came from.
Around him there are several men and women who have the same circumstances.
Together, they advance forward away from the darkness, and a world they've never seen before called "Grimgar" spreads out before them.
Memories, money, special powers — This is the reality we who have none of those things have obtained.
The "youth x fantasy" series follows Haruhiro and his companions as they suddenly find themselves in a "game-like world" called Grimgar and must form a party, cooperate, and learn new skills to survive the harsh environment together.
Author Ao Jūmonji and illustrator Eiri Shirai launched the light novel series in 2013, and Overlap Bunko published the sixth novel on October 25. Mutsumi Okubashi launched a manga adaptation in Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine in April.
