A 34-year-old otaku-NEET who was evicted from the house by his family slowly realizes that his life is reaching a dead end. He then remembered that his life would actually have been a lot better if he had made better choices in the past.
Just as he was at the point of regret, he saw a truck drive at high speed towards three high school students. With all his might he tried to save her, which ended up being run over by the truck.
When he wakes up again, he finds himself as Rudeus Grayrat in a world with swords and magic – albeit with memories from his previous life. Born in a new world, a new life, Rudeus decided: “This time I will really live my life to the fullest, without regrets!” The story now follows Rudeus from infant to adulthood.
