Shinka no Mi Synopsis: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei
Hiiragi Seiichi is an ugly, disgusting, dirty and smelly fat man; or at least these are the insults that he has heard all his life from him. Such was his daily bullying school life, and then for some reason, one day when classes were over, a voice claiming to be a God said through the public address system to prepare to be transported to another world. What’s more, not just Seiichi, but the entire school.
A fantasy world where there are elements similar to those of an RPG, such as levels, statistics and abilities. However, the God still had preparations to complete the transfer, and he would send them out as soon as the hero’s summoning ritual was ready. Thus, all the classes formed groups to wait for the transfer and, as expected, Seiichi was excluded and summoned to a different area. But in the area where he arrived, Seiichi came across the “Fruit of Evolution”, and that would completely change his life.
