posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Asia describes the series:
"I'm gonna go all out in this isekai!"
A 34-year-old virgin, jobless, shut-in and NEET, male.
On the day of his parents' funeral, he was kicked out of the house, and then immediately got run over by a truck and lost his life.
To his surprise, when he woke up, he was reincarnated as a baby in an isekai of swords and magic.
The man who once lived his life like a scum, has now become a boy named Rudeus, and swears that he'll give his best effort into life in this isekai!
Awaiting Rudeus is a loli magician, a pretty girl with elf ears who uses "Boku" to refer to herself, a violent tsundere Ojou-sama, and his encounters with all sorts of other people.
Moreover, he'll be fighting during his harsh adventures.
His new life is getting started!
A fantasy story of "restarting life", now begins!"
