As he begins his new life, he quickly gathers curious companions: his “senior” supervisor who’s younger than he is, a mysterious demi-human mercenary girl, and a gorgeous high-level swordswoman. With this bevvy of interesting ladies in his party, his journey as the greatest supporter who’s ever lived begins!
