Synopsis: Note Athlon was really looking forward to becoming an adventurer with his best friend (and crush) Miya. That is, until he drew Mapping—a rare skill with practically no purpose. In other words, it’s trash. This kicks off a vicious spiral for Note, who plummets further and further into the depths of self-loathing despair when Miya leaves him. He now spends his days drinking away his earnings, wondering how things might have been different if only he’d pulled a better skill… But little does he know his trash-tier skill is about to score him an invite to a top-tier adventuring party! Note’s now determined to find his way through life—and a dungeon!—in order to make something of himself.

  1. […] Mapping: The Trash-Tier Skill That Got Me Into a Top-Tier Party, Vol. 1 is the first entry to a fantasy-adventure series of crappy skills, dungeon dives, and two-faced dates(!). Our protagonist, Note Athlon, is a young man who dreamed of being a prolific adventurer, at least until he was bestowed the Mapping Skill at his presentation ceremony. With this notoriously trash-tier Skill, he finds himself hopping between parties, jobs, and drinks. But it turns out Mapping is just the Skill a top-tier party – the Arrivers – is looking for. How will Note use this opportunity to change his life (and personality) for the better? In this story of action, adventure, and romance(?), Udon Kamono brings us a tale of picking oneself up and working with what you’ve got. Hitomi Shizuki’s stylized designs then add to that fantastical feel. […]
