Isekara, or Letters From Elsewhere, is a serial that explores the question, “What exactly happens with the people who don’t end up in the fantasy world of the isekai story?” This is what the hero left behind. This is the story of the people who knew him. This is his best friend, the only one who knew what was truly going on.

This is what it means to be needed.
