However that is not the case with the remaining one person: Yashiro Yuu. Unlike Kaito, he is a normal teenager (and a perverted one) with zero magical power, and refuses to join the quest to slay the Demon King because he is summoned accidentally. Instead, he wants to live steadily as an adventurer. And there he goes, no one make a fuss when He suddenly left the party (because he is a weakling with zero magic power, no one cares) but that's just what he wanted: to live normally in obscurity, eh? but he has zero magic power, how can he survive you ask? That's no problem, because: Yashiro Yuu is actually Yuuya Shirou, the Previous Hero. Why do he get summoned twice then? what is his role then if there is already a new Hero? Will Yuu be able to live normally?
Spoiler for Novel Cover Illustration:


Another title from Narou that get published by MF Books. In one breath: this is the story of a hero summoned again to a world he left 3 years ago, meeting with old friends and making new friends, facing old and new enemies.

Ah, fantasy is just roman of man )~=_=)~

Narou or "Syosetsu ni Narou" (Let's become a Novelist) is a web-novel site, lots of LN published by MF Books, Alphapolis, Hero Bunko are also from this site. Famous title like Mahouka Rettousei or Accel World was first posted on this site before they get published on Dengeki. HJ, Overlap, MFJ also started to adapt web novel from this site into LN. Currently I'm addicted to narou-site ^_^

Oh I see that's interesting. So can you spoil anything regarding the first novel? Specifically: why the hero quit.

How can anyone not recognize the MC as the original hero?Besides that, was the MC 'powerless' when he was summoned before?

What's with the recent rash of LNs following similar concepts? This one at least seems interesting, but the "follow the leader" is kind of annoying.

from what I'm seeing

Spoiler for hero:


So is the silver haired girl the princess or Rishie the knight? Red eyes on the guy who I think is Kaito makes me think he goes evil and becomes the next demon lord.

@amatsunagi, I just wanted to tell you that I love all your recent contributions to this forum. You have good taste and I dare say that this is the most interesting setup of the demon lord and hero trope yet.

By the way, can you give us a breakdown of who's who in the illustration?

Nice princess, kidnap someone from there world to save yours. You can't send him back, and then find out he is rated as useless for your purpose, throw him on the street with nothing else.

Sounds like an awful snobbish b$tch to me.

So why did the MC return back to his own world originally? Did he get forced out because the world no longer needed him?

Ojou-samas we can actually hate since they're not contenders for the protagonist's affection. I like it. I never liked ojou-samas anyways.

Well, ojou samas from some series are quite nice, but the ones Amatsunagi introducees tends to be downright snobs and b^tches.

So is the new hero some sort of deutagonist?Does the MC get his own harem?
