Alternate Title

異世界チート魔術師

Synopsis

Taichi Nishimura is just a run-of-the-mill average high schooler, and Rin Azuma is a jaw-dropping beauty who looks like a model. The two lived an average high school life until one day suddenly they were both enveloped in a strange magical light and transported to an unfamiliar fantasy-like world where a multitude of different races including dreadful goblins, brutes, dwarves, and elves live. Stuck in this new world together, Taichi and Rin decide to become adventurers to survive, but after an aptitude test is performed it’s found out that they’re both using “cheat” magic!
