posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
J-Novel Club announced on Saturday that it has licensed author Ren Eguchi and illustrator Masa's Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill (Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hōrō Meshi) light novel series. The first part of the novels' first volume is available to read for free.
The company describes the series:
Mukouda Tsuyoshi was nothing special in modern Japan, so when he was summoned to a world of swordplay and sorcery, he thought he was ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Too bad the kingdom that summoned him only got him by mistake! Not only was he not one of the three summoned heroes, but his stats were laughable compared to theirs. On top of that, there's something really sketchy about this kingdom... "Ah, these people are the kind to try and use the Hero," he realized, and immediately left to make his own way in this other world. The only thing Mukouda can rely on is his unique skill: the "Online Supermarket," a skill that allows him to buy modern goods in a fantasy world. It's useless for combat, but if he plays his cards right, he could lead a comfortable life, maybe? At least, that's what Mukouda thinks, but it turns out modern food bought with this skill has some absurd effects! What happens when Mukouda introduces ridiculously tasty modern cooking to a fantasy world like this? He gets some ridiculous repeat customers begging for more...!
Eguchi started publishing the novels on the "Shosetsu ni Narō" website in 2016, and Overlap published the sixth novel volume in print on January 25. Overlap published the third volume of AkaishiK's manga adaptation on January 25, and also published the first volume of Momo Futaba's Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hōrō Meshi Sui no Daibōken spinoff manga on the same day.
