Synopsis of “TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy-“

The story revolves around Makoto Misumi, an ordinary young man who is transported to a fantasy world as part of a mysterious contract made between a goddess and his parents. However, upon his arrival, the goddess finds him physically displeasing and quickly strips him of his hero title and banishes him to the most remote and desolate lands of the world. In these hostile lands, Makoto discovers that he possesses exceptional magical and physical abilities that allow him to survive and thrive. As he explores this new world, he encounters a variety of demihumans and legendary creatures that are drawn to his unique abilities. Together, they begin to build a new community where everyone can live in harmony.

Despite the adversities and the initial rejection by the goddess, Makoto‘s journey is also a journey of self-discovery and establishing a new order in this world. His ability to speak all languages, except human, plays a crucial role in his ability to mediate and lead among the various races and species of the world. Throughout the series, Makoto and his new allies face multiple challenges that test their resilience and their ability to adapt and thrive in an environment that initially seems entirely hostile.
