Plot[edit]

Shingo Ichinomiya was once a single salaryman until the day he fell asleep and woke up in a magical fantasy world as a young boy named Wendelin von Benno Baumeister, the eighth son of the noble Baumeister family. Due to his family being poor, Wendelin is unlikely to inherit anything from his father as the family's noble title, wealth and possessions will go to his eldest brother Kurt while the rest of his brothers have to find income by other means. He looks through his fathers library and finds a magic testing orb which glows with rainbow colours when he activates it, proving he has an ability to use magic. Alfred, a former court wizard turned restless undead, senses his magical prowess and decides to teach Wendelin everything he knows about magic. Thanks to Alfred, Wendelin becomes a skilled swordsman and mage, leading him to become a famous adventurer known throughout the kingdom.
