The story follows Shin Wolford, a young man who was originally from Japan, but who was reborn with his memories intact in a magical world, where he was adopted and raised as the grandson of the great sage Merlin Wolford. Unfortunately, Shin was raised in isolation and Merlin forgot to teach him basic common sense...
