Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy

Misumi Makoto was just a normal high-school student... until the day he was summoned to another world because of an agreement his parents had made with a goddess. Except when he meets the only goddess in the world he's sent to, she insults him by calling him "extremely unattractive" and makes an arbitrary decision to banish him to a deserted wilderness. Makoto searches the desolate land to find other humans, but for some reason only finds creatures that are all nonhuman. Even the two pretty women who decide to follow him on his journey used to be a dragon and a giant spider. Along with two extremely eccentric characters (but really reliable in battles), so begins Makoto's unlucky adventure in the new world! A fantasy about a teenage boy who keeps getting hit by one problem after another!

In a fantasy world, Makoto largely interacts with the demi-humans and other non-humans. In a sense, the goddess of the world cursed fem with the ability to speak all non-human languages (even being able to speak to horses), but made fem unable to speak the human language. Fe did this because Makoto is not beautiful and fe doesn't want fem to contaminate the beautiful human society fe has created. But to be fair, Makoto isn't even intended to be ugly, just average-looking (by our world's standards). But the goddess is selfish, shallow, and exuding those final boss vibes. Makoto is insanely strong and gains several powerful servants by defeating them in battle: Tomoe, Mio, and eventually Shiki. Once Tomoe becomes feir servant, fe gains the ability to open up a mist realm. This ends up becoming a central aspect of the manga. Tomoe convinces Makoto to build a city within this mist realm and then invites several groups to coexist there: highland orcs, elder dwarves, alkeys, and mistio lizardmen. It reminds me of That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime, in the sense of building a city of monsters which then trades with humans. Tomoe is the impetus for most of the developments and fe is quite possibly my favorite character. (After Ema of course! I totes ship Makoto x Ema!!) Tomoe was able to read Makoto's memories and fell in love with period dramas. Fe wants to replicate Japanese culture within the mist realm and styles femself as a samurai. It's adorable. Though honestly, Mio's not a bad character either. Fe's very simple-minded and just wants to be loved by Makoto. As for side characters, I'd have to say that Rugui has captured my heart. Fe's the eye-patched dwarf who's tasked with designing gear suitable for Makoto, but feir stated motives are, um, funny. I'm not sure how I feel about Rembrant; I both hate fem and distrust fem, but also find fem a bit endearing and want to see how feir story will unfold. Since the goddess banished Makoto to the wastelands, isolated from humanity, fe brought in two other heroes to the human realm. Every once in a while, the story will show what those heroes are up to. And I really don't enjoy those detours. The heroes aren't interesting protagonists. Or antagonists. They aren't interesting characters really at all and I don't care if they succeed or if they fail. I'm sure eventually, their storylines will intersect more directly with Makoto's and then maybe I'll appreciate the set-up that happened before then, but at the moment I just really don't care.
