The very ordinary otaku university student Naofumi Iwatani finds a book in the library that summons him into an alternate world. He receives a mission as ‘hero of the shield’, who is one of four heroes, the others being sword, spear, bow. Their mission is to shake off the disaster called ‘Wave’ that brings chaos to the world. Naofumi is excited about this great adventure and begins his journey with his fellow comrades.

However he is betrayed after some days and loses money and his position, simply everything. Just when he thinks he can’t trust anybody else anymore he meets the slave Raphtalia, employs her and together they try to stand against the ‘wave’ and the world.
