This sets into motion a series of misunderstandings that has everyone believing that Kouki is the real genius behind all of the incredible new technology that his mother is rapidly developing.

As a result of his apparent genius, Kouki is forced to give up on his peaceful school life to attend the International Science and Technology Academy, where he meets a beautiful Canadian girl called Alice Alford, a robotics engineer named Shingo Saitou, and an expert on space exploration named Megumi Aikawa. Surely, he can’t still continue being mistaken for a genius while surrounded by these real geniuses?!

Every time Kouki uses his knowledge from his past life, it causes a new misunderstanding, and his ordinary life is gradually turning into an extraordinary life.

Kouki can’t help but go from one misunderstanding to another in this insane sci-fi comedy!!

What he doesn’t know is that Japan has discovered a portal to another world in the vicinity of Mount Fuji. The government sees a great chance to make a profit, if they can keep the secret long enough to corner the market on exports to the Holy Eldant Empire, their point of first contact with this new land.

The people of the Eldant Empire, though, only have eyes for one of Japan’s traditional exports: pop culture. When it quickly becomes evident that government bureaucrats and “Japanimation” don’t really mix, the bigwigs realize they’re going to need help bringing “otaku culture” to the Eldant masses.

Enter Amutech, a purveyor of “general entertainment” that’s secretly run by the Japanese government. Shinichi lands a job as the company’s general manager, whereupon he learns the state’s biggest secret. Now he finally has a chance to put his nerd know-how to good use spreading the otaku gospel in the Eldant Empire. And wait… he has to work with a half-elf maid, an empress, AND a female soldier to get the job done?
