But one day, when he logs on, he is whisked into the game's fantasy world as his character. There, he meets a one-legged girl, and begins his adventures alongside her. But as he is a powerful "Dark Lord," various nations and holy maidens journey to defeat him, and he stirs up trouble everywhere he goes.

Novelist and scriptwriter Ōka Tanisaki is overseeing the series scripts, and Chiyo Nakayama (key animator for Robotics;Notes, Kuroko's Basketball all three seasons) is adapting Makoto Iino's original character designs for animation.

Haruka Tōjō is performing the ending theme song "New."
