Description

Based on a light novel by Nagatsuki Tappei. It follows an original story that differs from the original light novel series and the anime.

Except, the prize isn't what it seems, and, taking on its "Death Curse", Subaru must use his power to return from the dead to solve the mystery, build the trusts with the girls, receive the "kiss of a beautiful girl" and break the curse to escape death.

Description

A 17-year-old hikikomori and gamer who suddenly finds himself transported to another world on his way home from the convenience store. There, he meets a silver-haired half-elf girl named Emilia, and falls deeply in love with her. Upon his arrival, Subaru acquires an ability which he calls "Return by Death", that allows him to go back in time when he dies, while still retaining his memories of the previous timeline. He is unable to tell anyone about his power, because any attempt to do so causes him to black out momentarily as black hands emerge to squeeze his heart, and may even kill those around him; it also causes him to give off the "scent of the Jealous Witch", which attracts "mabeasts" (magical creatures), and is repulsive to those who can detect it.

Description

Age: 20

The head of Karsten house, which is known to have strong ties to the late royal family, and one of the candidates for the royal election to become the 42nd King of Lugnica. Crusch's ideal is free the country from the centuries long heavy dependency on the Dragon's guidance which she believe has led Luginca into stagnation and stripped the country's will to govern without it, betraying the hopes of the conservative ruling class who pin her as favorite to win the election. Crusch is honest, sincere, right, being a type of person who is destined to stand above others, though she has talent and has worked hard to reach where she is now. She prefers to act herself and has the pride of a warrior, but is also very dense and often believes the false knowledge jokingly told to her by Ferris, and sometimes displays an airheaded side.
