Based on his introduction, 20-year-old college student, Naofumi, was a nice kid in his version of Japan. He helped his parents get his little brother in line, and while into video games, he wasn’t a shut-in. He was just an average, arguably unremarkable, kid. However, that changed when he got summoned to Melromarc and was assigned a legendary… shield.
Being given a shield, alongside his less than noteworthy persona, made it so, when it was time to form a party, and gain experience, no one initially wanted to join him. However, one person did who took our bright and bubbly Naofumi down a dark path. One that would change the way he presented himself to the world forever.
