The light novel’s Japanese title is Mob Kara Hajimaru Tansaku Eiyuu Tan, which roughly translates to the unofficial English title The Story of An Exploration Hero Who Has Worked His Way Up From Common People

A Nobody’s Way Up to an Exploration Hero is centered on average high school student Kaito Takagi, who is your typical mob background character. One day, mysterious dungeons begin popping up in Japan, and Kaito starts hunting slimes every day while admiring his childhood friend from afar. His luck changes after he defeats a gold slime, which gives him a super rare summoning item called the Servant Card. Using his newfound treasure, he summons a beautiful warrior maiden to change his fortunes around.
