The distant future: In a universe where humanity's mortal enemy is the alien race known as Bugs, an Imperial battleship suffers a mysterious and devastating attack that sends Captain Alan Corinth crash landing onto an unknown planet.

The company describes the story:
Usato, an ordinary high schooler, happens to run into two fellow students after school one rainy day. Suddenly, all three of them are engulfed in a magic circle and transported to a fantasy world.

Now Usato must spend his days with the rescue team thugs, struggling through their hellish training regimen--learning The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic.

After Hiroto Amamiya dies on a school trip, the god of reincarnation, Rodocolte, sends the unfortunate student into a second life. There he obtains death attribute magic, but after more than a decade of torment, his second life also ends in tragedy, after which Rodocolte reincarnates Hiroto once more for a third life--again without any special powers. Adamantly swearing that there definitely won't be a fourth time around, Hiroto uses his vast reserves of magical power and the special death attribute magic from his previous life to live as a dhampir called Vandal.
