Mochizuki Touya, a 15-year-old boy, who got zapped by a flash of lightning due to a freak accident caused by God, wakes up and finds himself face-to-face with God. “I am afraid to say that I have made a blunder…” laments the old coot. In order to smooth over the fault, God says that he can reincarnate Touya into a world of fantasy, and allow Touya to bring the smartphone! Then in a new, anachronistic pseudo-medieval world begins Touya’s adventure. Friends! Laughs! Tears! Inexplicable Deus ex Machina! Mochizuki Touya sets off on a journey full of wonder as he absentmindedly travels from place to place, following whatever goal catches his fancy. The curtains on an epic tale of swords, sorcery, and smartphone apps lift!


Therefore, you have died. I’m very sorry.」

「I see」

The old man then bows deeply. The shining clouds in the background begin to spread. The clouds spread everywhere like a rug with no end. But, I appear to be sitting on top of a tatami mat. It’s a simple 4.5 tatami room (Although there is no wall or ceiling) that floats above the clouds. There is a low dining table along with a tea cabinet and an old fashion television and black rotary-dial telephone.

And before my eyes is God. Or at least he says he is. For a God to say that I was killed by mistake, I don’t feel like I died.

If I remember correctly, I was coming home from school. I was in on my way back home because it suddenly began to rain. The moment I tried to take a shortcut through a nearby park, I was attacked by a radiant light and thunderous roar.

「I neglected to check for people earlier before I dropped lightning. I’m really sorry. There are reasonable amount of humans that die from lightning strikes, but this time it was completely unexpected in this case.」

「Did I get hit directly by thunder and die...I see. So this IS A CRUSADE!」[TL note: Did you get the reference? what is actually says >>I see, Then this place is heaven? <<]


When I wake up, I see the sky.

The clouds move slowly and you can hear birds chirping from somewhere.

I get up. There is no pain. I stand up and see mountains and grassland everywhere as I look around. It feels like being somewhere in the countryside.

So this is the other world.


(Hayate, is that you? What are you doing here, did you get into an argument with Nagi again? )

I see a big tree in the distance. I think there is a road near it.

「For now, I wonder if I’ll meet people along the road?」

I decide as I start walking towards the big tree. Before long, I see the road. This is certainly a road.

「Well, which way to go, but....」

I’m worried whether to go to my right towards the base of the big tree or to the left. Hmm, if I go right, it’ll take me 1 hour and if I go left, it’ll take me 8 hours to reach a town. If that’s the case, I’m worried....while thinking, my smart phone inside my pocket suddenly made a noise. (TL: you know, ring tone)


This is Tsunami. A few days ago my computer was infected with a virus that corrupted and destroyed about 1.3 terabyte of data on both of my SSD’s. Most of it was my entire anime collection and games, but most importantly chapter 4 of Smartphone was lost so I have to re-translate it. I’ll try and get started on TLing it again but i have lots of torrenting to do and this week is Finals for the class i teach and I have lots of grading to do still.
