Seventeen year old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling

all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his

class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving

the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns

into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job,

Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak,

he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and

demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength?
