The story follows an ordinary handyman named Saitou who is reincarnated into another world. At the start of his adventure, he meets a beautiful tsundere warrior; a powerful, but forgetful spellcaster who is also a perverted geezer; and a cute, but miserly fairy. Saitou makes use of his handyman skills in this new fantasy world to perform tasks like opening chests or repairing his allies’ armor. Although he has no special magical skills, Saitou finds fulfillment in his new life where he’s needed and appreciated.
