However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength?

A truly excellent work
The concept of the book is nice and the plot that Author develops is quite interesting, but be prepared to get a bit bored when it comes to the characters. Specifically the Main Character and a few supporting ones. Some points in the story can feel like a grind, especially later on in the series (mainly with Volume 2), and the Author tends to feed the Protagonist the answer at times, which really hurts the suspense factor and makes it hard to truly connect with the character beyond getting a laugh or a smirk. After a certain point, the butterflies in your stomach that you feel for the Main Character tend to fade away. At that point, it's all a matter of reading from page to page. Not much surprise after that point. On a more positive note, our Main Character here isn't your regular guy, and the language of the book is pretty simple, which keeps in line with the Main and how the character is developed. But again, that is how I feel about this book; it's fun, but it's simple. Don't expect many surprises.
A really awesome read.
