It’s just your average (slightly perverted) farmer in the village of Ceza. While he dreams of being a hero and getting the girl, the real hero, Sion, fights demons that threaten to invade the world! But one day Tuka accidentally kills the hero…?! After the death of the legendary hero, who will save the world now?! Tuka quickly buries Sion’s body to hide the evidence, but wakes up the next day to find that she is no longer in her own body…!!
