NTV describes the anime:
Makoto Misumi is just an ordinary high school student living a regular life, but all of a sudden gets summoned to the other world to become a “hero.” The goddess of the other world, however, insults him for being different and strips his “hero” title, before casting him off to the wilderness at the edge of the world. As he wanders the wilderness, Makoto encounters dragons, spiders, orcs, dwarves, and all sorts of non-human tribes. Because Makoto comes from a different world, he is able to unleash unimaginable magical powers and combat skills. But just how will he handle his encounters with various species and survive in his new environment. In this fantasy, Makoto tries to transform the other world into a better place despite the humans and gods having turned their backs on him.
NTV secured distribution of the anime worldwide outside of Asia through Crunchyroll. The company also secured key sales for distribution of the anime in Asia through MediaLink Entertainment Limited‘s Ani-One Asia streaming channel and the Aniplus-Asia television channel. The anime will debut through these distributors (in addition to Crunchyroll) in South Korea (Aniplus-Asia) and in Southeast Asia (Ani-One Asia) “shortly after [the anime’s] broadcast in Japan.” Between the three distributors, the platforms will distribute the anime in more than 200 countries and territories.
