Makoto Misumi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makoto_1.png

Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae

An Ordinary High-School Student who is teleported against his will to another world... then promptly abandoned by the Goddess who summoned him. Makoto is a stereotypical Story-Breaker Power protagonist (mage type) who could singlehandedly save the world if he wanted to. Sadly, he's not in that kind of story.


  • Achievements in Ignorance:
    • Makoto is able to boost his already ridiculous power level from being equal to multiple demon lords to just shy of a God 'and' warp reality and create new worlds around himself, by using a mundane meditation technique. He didn't even realize he was doing it until his companions observed him doing it.
    • Later, he achieves Creation, causing reality itself to scream in pain and frustration as he forces some armor into existence to defend against a specific attack. This is explicitly spelled out as something only Greater Gods of Creation can do, and the person who tells him ( Daikokuten, aka Shiva, Hindu God of Destruction and Creation) mentions if not for restrictions placed on them, they would have immediately tried to kill him for it, and because of those restrictions he's only been allowed to get stronger so they may no longer be able to.
  • Almighty Janitor: Makoto is, for all appearances, an unassuming (and, for the setting, ugly) level 1 adventurer and a man who runs a small medicine and snack shop, occasionally teaching self defense classes at the local academy. Some realize that he's significantly more than that. In reality, he is the single most powerful being in the entire novel, just below a god. This is before he does any kind of training, which puts him firmly into Greater God tier strength and rising.
  • Archer Archetype: Despite his superhyuman magic abilities, Makoto's true talent is in archery. Without even using his abilities, he can one shot kill monsters that would take entire teams of seasoned adventurers to fight.
  • Beady-Eyed Loser: How the anime and manga depicts his Hollywood Homely nature. The other characters are all drawn in a more traditional anime look, but in the Anime especially Makoto's pupils are extremely small.
  • Celibate Hero: Makoto rejects any and all attempts at seduction from Tomoe and Mio, both knowing their true forms (Dragon and Spider, respectively) and considering them family. He later ends up averting this by sleeping with both of them, officially become romantic partners with them.
  • Chick Magnet: Even before coming to the new world and meeting Tomoe and Mio, Makoto still managed to grab the attention of several girls in his school. He was the average looking Vice President of the Archery Club, which was filled with beautiful women, the two most beautiful of which confessed to him.
  • Covert Pervert: Played a lot of porn games back on Earth, to the point his very first request to Tsukuyomi is to wipe his hard drive. Tomoe also regularly teases or coerces Makoto into doing things for her by bringing up various porn games he's played with her memory access powers.
  • The Dreaded:
    • Makoto's magical ability is so overpowering that merely being in his presence is enough to terrify everyone and everything. Even after he finds ways of restraining his power, the few people who rationalize or observe just how powerful he is are openly terrified of him, and for damned good reason.
    • When he finally snaps in chapters 59 and 60 (Manga chapter 42), stoically and effortlessly murdering a hyuman-supremacist who accidentally set off a bomb in his pocket dimension, said supremacist can't understand a word he's saying. The look on his face, tone of his voice, and the killing intent behind him is enough to drive her to a terrified self defense.
      Makoto: Right now, I honestly wish that I had killed you back in the forest.
  • Field Power Effect: Realm/Sakai, which manifests as a magical aura around Makoto. It's a bit of a catch all, allowing him to increase his power, hide his magic, heal others (but not himself), negate magic, and acts as a radar. However, he is limited to how many effects he can do at the same time, and usually has to use the negate magic ability on himself to restrain his powers.
  • Hollywood Homely: In Japan, Makoto was a fairly average and unassuming young man, but still had some admirers. In the new world all hyumans are supernaturally attractive, so Makoto being average for his old world makes him hideous in the new one.
  • Lack of Empathy: It's revealed that when younger, Makoto had no empathy to a near sociopathic level, only learning to fake emotions in order to avoid frightening the people around him. This includes forcing himself to cry after the deaths of some of his subordinates and him killing the one responsible despite not understanding why he's actually crying, he understands that, yes, he cared for his subordinates and feels nothing for killing the hyuman but he's only crying because of a memory of his parents comforting his sister after she's upset over a cat dying and he's acting out the emotions he should feel even though he himself doesn't actually care.
    • This starts to lose it's hold on him later in the story, were he comes to legitimately care and love his subordinates and especially Mio and Tomoe.
  • No Respect Guy: Makoto is a level 1 and E ranked adventurer. Everyone who meets him assumes he is using Tomoe and Mio as Crutch Characters. Some realize he's talented but few to exactly what extent. Those who realize just how powerful he really is are openly terrified of him, and for good reason.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: The true source of his powers is only described as a featureless black abyss peaking out from the white "shell" that is Makoto, to reinforce just how horrifyingly dangerous Makoto could be if ever pushed over the edge.
  • Oblivious to Love: Subverted. He acts fairly clueless about Tomoe and Mio's ongoing affections towards him, only for later chapters to reveal he's doing it on purpose because he doesn't want to commit to relationships in his new world as long as he plans to try to go back to Earth. After coming to terms with his desire to remain with his new friends and family, he drops the act.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Outside of his skill at Archery (and attracting a love triangle with the cute girls in the Archery club), he was unremarkable in his original world, other than he went through some fairly extreme training.
  • Physical God: Makoto is ostensibly a normal hyuman teenager, albeit one with a lot of magical ability. However, he creates a life-filled pocket dimension where Asora resides on accident, has physical and magical abilities far above anyone else in the setting, and raw magical power that puts him just below the gods — and, being still hyuman, he can improve with training. And does. By the time Tomoe and Mio stop him from abusing a Zen Archery meditation technique that was causing his mana capacity to grow exponentially, he is "1 step below the Goddess."
  • Power Incontinence: Makoto cannot help but leak out ungodly amounts of mana, which is akin to "several demon lords appearing at once." He does this on accident. It's so bad that he has to wear several Power Limiters and use his Realm/Sakai ability to conceal his mana from others.
  • Power Limiter: Makoto has to wear several types at the same time — multiple rings (each meant to make a normal person completely unable to use magic) and a full suit of clothing (which should be fatal to wear due to the mana drain) and has to use Realm/Sakai to contain and reduce his power before either of the other two methods just for them to work — just to hide his power. Anyone else wearing any of those items would be struck dead by the mana drain — they merely catch the runoff from Makoto's abilities.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: The actual reason he's listed as level 1 by the adventurer Class and Level System is that he'd already exceeded the maximum power level of that system from the moment he arrived in the Goddess's world.
  • Reluctant Ruler: Gradually takes races into his alternate universe. He isn't exactly cut out for it.
  • Sex God: After he finally hooks up with Mio and Tomoe his Physical God stamina and mana pool from living on Earth and his constant training over the series turn out to have *ahem* numerous applications in bed. Tomoe eventually asks her Really Gets Around subordinate Lime if he has any tips after even both of them, despite being legendary monsters, can't manage to outlast Makoto's seemingly bottomless stamina.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Reconstructed. Makoto Misumi has the Story-Breaker Power most Isekai type heroes have, but everyone who understands this about him treats him like a living Doomsday Device, one that must be kept far away from politics and taking sides in conflicts, lest he starts wiping out civilizations. Fortunately for the world, he's more interested in being a merchant...Which he's less than talented at. As for his appearance, the goddess he was summoned to serve found him ugly and sent him out of sight. And his companions are balanced between men and women, and while the women are interested in him, he's a Celibate Hero (And even distrusting a few of them), Until he consummates a proper harem.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Makoto's mana is way past absurd. This, combined with his Realm/Sakai ability given to him by Tsukuyomi, makes him beyond overpowered. Especially when 'simply using this power can make him stronger'.
  • Training from Hell: Makoto was put through various training by his parents who knew he would eventually be sent to the other world. This included training his archery without wearing his glasses, as well as living on Earth, a world without mana and with heavier gravity than the other world, which naturally trained his ability to use magic and to move his body.
  • Tranquil Fury: Makoto finally snaps after a group of hyuman-supremacist adventurers he teleported to Asora to save from their own racist stupidity decide to pillage the place, causing an explosion that kills all but the adventurer's leader, harms several hundred Asora residents, kills several side characters, and puts Tomoe into a coma. He calmly follows her through the gate, entraps the woman in his own version of Tomoe's mist, and calmly and methodically defends against her attack, cuts both her arms off at just past the elbow with a small dagger, kicks her violently to the ground, and slits her throat. He only has an emotional reaction after the fact.
    • Said emotional reaction isn't because he actually cares about the deaths, it's because his parents told him that it's sad when things die and his body is reacting to that over any actual emotional attachment to the situation.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: While in the Goddess's world, combat is still new to Makoto but he compensates it with his super human body and ridiculous amount of mana he has.

    Tomoe 

Tomoe / Supreme Dragon of Mirages Shen

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tomoe_0.png

Voiced by: Ayane Sakura

A Supreme Dragon who made a contract with Makoto after peering into his memories and becoming obsessed with the history of Japan.


  • Cosplay: Her sarashi and hakama outfit is specifically meant to copy the look of the samurai from the historical japanese dramas she loves so much.
  • Costume Evolution: Starts out with a very revealing kimono getup, only to switch to a more conservative hakama because she wants to cosplay as a samurai.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Her idea of training is more like absolute torture.
  • Foreign Culture Fetish: Loves all things Japanese, but especially samurai and detective stories.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Naturally given how she fangirls about samurai, her weapon of choice is a katana.
  • Kimono Fanservice: Starts out in a kimono with the shoulders off and the font completely open on the bottom, making her chest and legs stand out.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: She's fascinated by the culture of Earth, especially historical Japanese dramas, and ends up joining up with Makoto to get access to more of it through talking with him and viewing his memories.
  • Master of Illusion: The power she governs over as a Superior Dragon. Apart from making illusions to fool her opponents, she can No-Sell attacks and kill people by turning them into illusions.
  • Morphic Resonance: Her wavy turquoise hair and ruby red lizard eyes are shared between her dragon and human forms.
  • Sarashi: Starts binding her chest with a white cloth strip after switching to her samurai cosplay.

    Mio 

Mio / The Black Spider of Calamity

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mio_4.png

Voiced by: Akari Kitou

A giant black spider that was driven insane by hunger and terrorized the wastelands in search of sustenance. After Makoto inadvertently sates her hunger for the first time with his massive mana pool, she forms a contract with him and becomes Makoto's second subordinate.


  • Combat Hand Fan: Uses a fan as her weapon of choice.
  • Combat Sado Masochist: Invoked in the anime adaptation. When she and Makoto first battle, whenever Makoto blasts her with his spells, she emits what are very clearly sounds of pleasure. Makoto even refers to her as a "pervert" after blasting her with enough of his magic to temporarily exhaust himself. She promptly regenerates and wraps her mandibles around him in her equivalent of a hug whilst ecstatically praising him for the "meal" their battle gave her. Tomoe can only watch the exchange and disbelievingly call her a "real pervert".
    Mio: You're incredible. Amazing! It hurts so much. It tastes so delicious. It feels so good. I've never felt so fulfilled.
  • The Dreaded: As the Black Calamity Spider.
  • Eat the Evidence: Early on the team disposes of bodies of enemies by having Mio devour them whole with her Extreme Omnivore abilities.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She is capable of eating just about anything, so long as it's physical, and happily would eat whatever she could wrap her fangs around prior to meeting Makoto. Justified in that she was hungry not so much food as for mana, and so everything she ate was just a means of trying in vain to fill her enormous mana pool. Once Makoto ended her maddening hunger, she slowly learned to appreciate and value the taste of whatever she was eating.
  • Foreign Culture Fetish: Gains an appreciation of anime and tokusatsu (super sentai) shows when she observes the memories Tomoe was organizing and translating, although not to the extent of Tomoe.
  • Healing Factor: What's kept her alive for so long is her ability to regenerate from damage inflicted to her. In fact, she can absorb mana from spells used on her, which is how Makoto inadvertently feeds her whilst attempting to kill her.
  • Hidden Depths: A foodie, as befitting her original form, Mio becomes interested in cooking and becomes a surprisingly talented chef.
  • Horror Hunger: Prior to meeting Makoto, she was so maddened with hunger that she attacked and devoured anything she could find mindlessly. Being fulfilled by his mana is the only thing that brought back her ability to reason.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: She is turned on when Makoto hurts her, even if the intent was non-intimate. For example, when he bonks her as punishment for frightening a child, she winces and tries to justify her actions, but the hearts in her eyes still signify her arousal.
  • Love Bubbles: In the anime adaptation, when hugging Makoto after he feeds her, she is surrounded by glowing pink hearts, pink bubbles, and glittering motes of golden light, to showcase that she has become enamored with him.
  • Magic is Feminine: She is the most feminine member of the main cast, and she fights using magic spells and hexes. Even when she does use more physical strikes, it's always bolstered by magic.
  • Seductive Spider: She is coded as a hypersexual sado-masochist right from the start, moaning in pleasure while fighting against Makoto in her giant spider form, being so excited by her injuries and the taste of his blood that both he and Tomoe call her a "pervert". After the battle, she declares that she will follow Makoto and belong to him for the rest of her life, and repeatedly tries to coax him into bed with her.
  • Spider People: Only in the sense that she's normally a Giant Spider but has the ability to assume a human form.
  • Supreme Chef: Learned how to cook to impress Makoto. Initially, she was a Lethal Chef since, as an Extreme Omnivore she had a poor understanding of what others could eat and would cook with things such as gemstones under the assumption that the only reason Makoto didn't eat buildings was that they were uncooked.
  • Yandere: Mio is extremely possessive and doting on her "Waka-sama," and being originally a non-sentient abomination she lacks a lot of the morals and civilized common sense that the others have. Makoto is often more worried about Mio's overreactions to things than anything else in a given situation.

    Shiki 

Shiki / Larva the Lich

Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda

A hyuman who turned himself into a lich long ago to get more time to study magic. He made a contract with Makoto after being defeated in battle.


  • Cool Teacher: Alongside Makoto in the latter's Raidou persona.
  • Only Sane Man: As the only former hyuman of Makoto's retainers, he is an island of sanity compared to the others.
  • Hot in Human Form: Initially, he had a skeletical appearance in his lich form. As a hyuman, he is a handsome young man with long silky locks and a muscular build.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: In his hyuman form, he's a Bishōnen with long red hair.
  • Revive Kills Zombie: Averted. Unlike other typical undead, healing magic is one of his specialties. Makoto's openly disillusioned by the thought of a White Mage Lich.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He is far weaker than Tomoe or Mio, but he makes up for it with his large knowledge base.

    Tamaki 

Tamaki / Touda the Wicked Fire General

A servant that was gifted to Makoto by Susanoo, who was once a legendary spirit associated with various tales about Abe no Seimei.
  • Been There, Shaped History: "Touda" was the name of one of the twelve divine familiars of Abe no Seimei in legend. Tamaki similar alludes to various events she's been involved in in Japan's past.
  • Enigmatic Minion:
    • Makoto is absolutely convinced that she is not to be trusted and has a second agenda, having previously been a minor deity of Earth and a servant to Earth's gods, with it hinted that she was something much more malevolent than a mere servant.
    • Beyond just where she came from, part of his distrust is him having an epiphany when meeting her gaze — It was filled with evil — or more specifically, malice. It's enough to send him into a minor existential crisis and then ask Rembrandt to teach him about evil — and conflict.
  • The Magnificent: Tamaki used to be known as "Touda the Wicked Fire General." Though this makes her one of the Familiars of Abe no Seimei in legend, Makoto does not pick up on it.

Asora

Hyumans

    Lime Latte 
Voiced By: Taku Yashiro

A womanizing adventurer who is hired to Makoto's company and becomes Tomoe's subordinate.


  • Half-Human Hybrid: While originally fully hyuman, he's made into a half-dragon by Tomoe granting him some of her blood.

Demons

Gods

    Tsukuyomi 
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno

The Japanese god of the Moon. He is the one who selected Makoto to become the hero.


  • Almighty Janitor: He literally helps every other Deity on Earth with their duties, to the point that they have difficulty actually doing their jobs when he's out of commission.

    The Goddess/Bug 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bug_7.png

Voiced By: Reina Ueda

The goddess of the world that Makoto is summoned to. Incredibly shallow and obsessed with beauty, she regularly prioritizes her own whims over actually maintaining the peace and safety of her world.


  • Beauty Is Bad: She's a beautiful goddess who dislikes all non-human simply because they don't fit her aesthetic sense of beauty.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts rather nice to the two heroes she chose herself. Although that doesn't mean they trust her.
  • Evil Is Petty: Her sole interaction with Makoto has her show that she regards him as less than an insect, purely because she finds him ugly.
  • Fantastic Racism: humans are the only ones who get her blessing, which allows them to drive out all the other races and dominate.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: It seems that most, if not all of the suffering any demihuman goes through is because of her blessing to the humans.
  • Hate Sink: There is nothing redeemable about her. Her entire lack of any kind of empathy toward "undesirables" has caused countless suffering, and she doesn't care.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty:
    • Her position isn't as secure as she thinks it is. Makoto's power is said to be at least approaching hers, and Tsukuyomi states that he and the other gods intend to punish her for what she's done.
    • Waterfall of the Superior Dragons states later in the story that she is no longer capable of stopping Makoto if he came after her, and tries to have Makoto sealed away or leave their dimension entirely, he personally hopes Makoto just goes back home.
  • Smug Snake:
