First Journey, and Samurai (初旅、そしてサムライ。 Hatsutabi, soshite Samurai?) is the second episode of the In Another World With My Smartphone anime.

Plot

The episode begins with Touya and the twins (Elze and Linze) arriving in a new town while on their way to deliver a letter to a person in the royal capital (a guild request). Touya believes they should have taken the Mega Slime subjugation request instead since it paid better; however, the girls are against it. Elze tells him that slimes are disgusting and some can even melt clothes; something They will not tolerate. They then come across some kind of scene unfolding nearby involving a young girl and several men.

Turns out the girl is being targeted because she previously helped get some drunks arrested; their friends want revenge. She quickly uses jujitsu to subdue three, but stops when he stomach growls. Touya steps in, followed by Elze to help her. Hearing the guards are coming, they quickly retreat into an alley with the girl. The girl introduces herself as Yae Kokonoe a traveler from Oedo, Eashen. Touya introduces himself, which makes Yae think he's from Eashen too; however, he quickly deflects that he's from somewhere similar.

After Yae explains she lost her travel funds, they treat her to lunch; unfortunately she's a human garbage disposal, prompting Touya to worry she's bankrupt them. Yae explains that she's on a journey to improve her skills. Linze wonders where Yae plans to go, to which she says the Royal capital; the same destination as the trio. They invite her to come with; though Touya is still worried about funds.

Later, the group is riding in cart with Yae at the reigns. Elze is glad to have another pair of hands to switch with, since Touya cant handle it. Linze hands Touya a spell book on [Null magic], which has some silly spells in it; like curling hair and making dogs friendly. She explains that Touya is a rare case of someone who can use any spell once he's seen it; [Null magic] typically can only be used by the one born with the spell. He finds one called [Aports] that can pull distant objects to his hand; he fails. Elze wonders what he tried to take; Touya explains he tried for one of Yae's katana. He realizes he can only take small things and tries again; this time taking Yae's ribbon. Linze and Elze believe the spell to be dangerous as Touya could pickpocket people for money without ever getting caught; Touya assures them that he won't. He then wonders if he can use [Aports] to take someone's underwear, prompting the sisters to cower away from him; Touya assures them he's joking (he's not a pervert). Yae asks for her ribbon back to keep her hair from blowing im her face.

Later Touya finds a spell in the book called [Slip], which removes friction in the designated area; he thinks its only useful for specific situations. Continuing his reading, Touya finds a spell called [Long Sense], which allows his five senses to reach behind his normal range. Elze snarkily comments it's perfect for pervert to keep on girls without getting caught. Touya then notices a smell thanks to the spell; blood coming from straight ahead!

Upon arriving at the scene Touya and the others discover a carriage being guarded by soldiers coming under attack by creatures being summoned by a magician (lizardmen). While Elze, Linze and Yae get rid of the lizardmen Touya takes out the magician by using the Slip Spell. After dispatching the enemy creatures Touya and the others find a critically injured man on the verge of death, using a combination of healing magic and the Aports Spell (which he uses to extract a piece of a arrow that was stuck inside his body) he is able to save the man. Upon introductions the group is surprised to discover that the young lady they are escorting is in fact the daughter of the Duke of Belfast (the King's younger brother) and thus royalty who introduces herself as Sushie Ernea Ortlinde.

At the request of Leim (Sue's butler and the man Touya saved) the group continues their journey to royal capital with Sue's group. Upon arriving at the royal capital and to her home (a large mansion) Touya and the others are warmly welcomed by her father (the Duke of Belfast) who thanks Touya and his friends for saving his daughter. Later Touya is having a conversation with the Duke concerning the attack on his daughter and who could possibly be behind it when Sue returns from speaking with her mother. When Touya asks about the Duchess he is told that she is blind due to surviving an illness that she had five years ago, and that despite the efforts of multiple healers her blindness could not be undone. He later explains that the reason Sue had been travelling is locate a spell that can heal her mother with no success, with mentioning her grandfather had a spell capable of restoring her sight but the Duke states that it is impossible since it's a null magic (it can only be used by that person).

The girls overhearing the conversation excitedly point out that Touya is capable of utilizing any magic. Later Touya cast the magic on the Duchess which to the overwhelming happiness of the others is shown to be successful. The Duke thankful to Touya for saving and protecting his daughter, along with restoring his wife's sight, gifts him with a pouch containing 40 platinum coins (the denomination above gold with each being worth 10 gold coins) to which he reluctantly accepts. He then gifts Touya and the girls with medals bearing his family's crest which would allow him to pass through city checkpoints and utilize facilities normally only available to nobility.

With their quest done, Touya asks what Yae plans to do next. Yae explains she wishes to stay with the trio as they have proven themselves noble warriors. Touya, Linze and Elze welcome Yae to their party.
