Seventeen-year-old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. 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 paradise 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?

The story starts of great, there is plenty of emotional depth and a relatable protagonist. However, as the story progresses it becomes a glorified emo cliche with way too much focus on romanic attractions and a not so clear motive for the protagonist to follow. It get's worse with just how over powered the protagonist becomes and his general outlook on everything gradually changes from pessimistic loner to tsundere straight man. I felt like the story was made rather well in the beginning but then it felt like the author swapped out with an awkward pervert that has daddy issues. Really, everything from after he meets bunny girl is just a mess.
I really enjoyed it but had to drop it due to Japtems horrible translation skills, having to read paragraphs 4-5 times over, re arranging it in my head to be able to understand it was painful, all in all this would be a great read if someone came and copied his broken english and fixed it up into something readable.
