After dying as a result of God’s mistake, Touya finds himself in another world, where he begins his second life. His only possessions are the body that God gave back to him and a smartphone that works even in this world. As he meets all kinds of new people and forges new friendships, he ends up learning the secret to this world. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and works together with the kings of some very laid-back countries on his carefree travels through this new world. (Synopsis from Medialink)
