Main characters

  • Naofumi Iwatani – the main character, a benevolent, but not very sociable young man of 20 years. Other heroes called to battle do not take Naofumi seriously. And the first companion, using the confidence of the guy, stole things, while telling everyone about his “sexual thoughts”. After the incident, Naofumi’s attitude towards people has changed dramatically, and not for the better. For the battle in the parallel world, the guy was given a shield, unlike the other recruits – so they got the weapons to attack.
  • Raphtalia – a young orphan girl accompanying Naofumi everywhere, who in turn bought her from a local slave trader. The girl does not look like the usual one: she has cute ears on a shock of hair, she is fluent in a sword, can fight, thus protecting the main character. Friendship with Raphtalia turns the protagonist from a cynic and an incredulous guy into a true warrior, able to understand and protect people.
