Short Synopsis

Prologue

God had stated the truth, the fact that he messed up and killed Touya. Touya calmly accepted it as the old man bowed down to him to apologize. God reveals that he killed Touya accidentally by throwing thunder down and sincerely apologizes again. God then implies that Touya is a bit too calm, despite the fact he is now dead. Touya responds to this by saying he still is having a hard time believing it but what done is done and there's really no reason to point fingers. God realizes and states that Touya is truly a wonderful person and says to forgive his carelessness. God asks Touya if there are any small favors he can grant him. It was a cellular telephone and to make it function in the world he was to be resurrected in. God says it is possible but there will be restrictions like no communication with just anyone, no texting, no internet, or posting to social media. God also tells Touya he'll link battery power to magic which will keep it from running out of power. Touya, confused by God saying magic asks him if people in this new world can actually use magic. God answers yes to this and says in due time he'll be able to use it as well. God gives Touya basic abilities a boost in order to prevent Touya from dying due to mere probability. God calls the boost a little present from him. God states he can't interfere with the lower world and should he need any advice, he can call him on his phone. God then smiles and says goodbye to Touya, who instantly passes out.

Chapter I - In Another World

Touya woke up on the outskirts of Reflet. Touya was immediately contacted by God, saying that he does not want to create a big commotion by transporting Touya into a town so he settled on transferring Touya outside the town. God also said that Touya can use the map on the phone to travel to the nearest town. After Touya's conversation with God, Touya settled on traveling to Reflet but he realized that he does not have any basic necessities. Suddenly, Touya noticed a carriage passing by. The carriage stopped with a moustached gentleman coming out of it, looking at Touya's clothes meticulously and immediately fascinated with it. The gentleman offered Touya to trade his clothes to the gentleman and in return the gentleman will offer him a new set of clothes, a ride to Reflet and sum of money. After three hours of travel, Touya arrived at the gentleman's shop in Reflet. Touya realized that he cannot read upon seeing the sign of the gentleman's shop. Touya also learned the name of the moustached gentleman is Zanac Zenfield and the gentleman's shop is Fashion King Zanac. Zanac paid Touya's clothes for 10 gold coins. Touya asked Zanac if Zanac knows an inn in Reflet and Zanac answered Silver Moon which is relatively near from his shop. Touya bids farewell to Zanac and he started to find the inn.

Touya arrived at a place with a crescent moon on its sign and inferred that he had arrived at the inn. Touya entered the inn and met a pretty looking woman around 20 years old with red hair tied in a ponytail. Touya asked about the cost of stay per night and the woman answered that for one night with a meal included in the morning and evening is worth two copper coins. Since Touya does not know if it is cheap or expensive he asked the woman again about the nights that he can stay at the inn for one gold coin. The woman replied that he can stay for 50 nights with one gold coin. Touya then realized the worth of the gold coins and he paid for a month stay at the inn. The woman asked for Touya's name and he responded Mochizuki Touya. The woman thought that Touya's first name is Mochizuki and Touya corrected her. The woman asked Touya if he was born from Eashen due to the name and surname is reversed and Touya replied vaguely that he was born somewhere around that place. Touya ordered lunch to be delivered to his room and immediately he went straight to his room to rest for a while. After eating lunch, Touya bid farewell to Micah, the inn-keeper woman, and strolled in the town.

While walking in the town, Touya observed that many people carry weapons from axes, knives, swords to whips. Touya began to ponder if he needs to buy a weapon and reminds himself that he needs to find a way to make money. As Touya's thoughts increases, he suddenly heard an argument off the main street towards the back alley. Touya's curiosity tingles and he decided to look. Upon entering the back alley, Touya saw four people, two man and two woman, quarreling at the end of the path. (to be continued)

Chapter II - The More the Merrier! Double the Joy, Half the Sorrow

Touya, Linze, and Elze look for quests to do at the guild’s board. And Touya practices reading by reading a quest listing about exterminating slimes and when he consulted his party about accepting they vehemently disagree saying that they hate sticky slimy creatures and that slimes melts clothes. They then come across a quest to deliver a letter to the capital that was coincidentally Zanac Zenfield’s, the one who bought Touya’s clothes, request. As Touya ponders about how long the travel will take he thinks that it’ll be beneficial since he will be able to use gate to go to and from the capital. They then meet up with Zanac for a more detailed explanation of their quest which is to deliver a letter to Viscount Swordrick in the capital and that their traveling expenses will be handled by Zanac and any remaining funds will be theirs to keep.

They rented a carriage that Touya says is nothing more Han just a cart but is still better than walking. And since Elze and Linze had a relative who took care of farm animals, they know how to coach and so they went way North, passing through the town of Nolan, until arriving at the town called Amanesque to rest for the day. However, looking around town they met Kokonoe Yae, an Eashen person, wearing a kimono like dress and wielding a Japanese katana like sword, facing of against ruffians, although they were quickly dealt with Yae and Touya and his party. Yae revealed to them that she is traveling to the capital and Touya’s party decides to bring her along as they are traveling to the same place. And they depart for the capital the next day, with Touya learning and feeling ashamed that even Yae is able to drive the carriage but says that he is studying magic so it’s alright. Touya learns to use long sense and detects people up ahead being attacked by lizard men. The party rushes in to help the people under attack and runs cues them. And the people were an envoy which consisted of Sushie Urnea Ortlinde, the daughter of Duke Alfred Urnes Ortlinde, Liem, Sushie’s servant, and ten guards, seven of which had died in the attack and learns that they are also headed to the capital and decides to hire them as guards. Sushie then orders one of the guards to bring a message to his father of the happenings

They safely arrive at the capital passing through checkpoints quickly because of Sushie’s family crest on the carriage. And when they arrive at Sushie’s home, her father was glad and thankful to Touya and his party, so much so to even award them 10 platinum coins (1 platinum coin is 10 gold coins) each and a medal that has their crest that acts as a invitation or support from his family. They then continue their quest to deliver the letter and learn that Yae is also looking for Viscount Swordrick, who was a student of Yae’s father. And when they arrived they gave the letter and received the reply but Viscount Swordrick learns that Yae is Kokonoe Jubei, his former teacher, daughter. Yae and Viscount Swordrick have a match, which Yae lost. Yae lost due to shade sword, a technique that turns fighting spirit into a blade however it is just an illusions so when Yae tried to overhead block it, she was hit at side instead. Yae then thanks him and they leave.

Touya then goes shopping separated from the rest, looking for armor that doesn’t hinder his agility. He learns that only enchanted leather armors are stronger than metal armor so he heads to an exclusive invite and nobles only shop called Berkut but thanks to his medal he is able to shop there. However, along the way he meets a lost young Demi-human fox girl named Arma and helps her find her sister.

Chapter III - The Crystal Creature

Touya, Elze, and Linze with Yae tagging along reports to Zanac that they have completed the quest, and Touya returns the travel funds rather than keeping it because he said that Zanac’s trust is more important. Then they rest up and Touya makes another dessert, role cake which receives high praises from those around him, including Sushie Urenea Ortlinde. At this time, Touya learns new useful null spells, Enchant, Paralyze, Modeling, and Search. And they then take quests which raises their rank to green, the third from beginner rank and also the rank where others acknowledges one to be a real adventurer. At this point, Elze suggest they try taking quests in other towns which they agree. They take the request to defeat monsters, a dullahan with a 20-pack wolf which they defeat but end up at the remains of the old capital.

Elze says what if there’s treasure or something valuable their but Yae says that it is impossible since the capital was only relocated and not raided or captured. Touya uses search null magic for “treasure” anyways but nothing comes up he then tries to search for “historical relics” and something does come up and so the party heads towards the location, they go underground and end up in a room with ancient language written on the walls so Touya, thinking it might be important, takes a photo of it, then, they find a stone spellstone that Touya activates which opens a room they find a broken crystal-cricket like thing, a Phrase, a word the learn in later volumes. And before they realized it, the phrase absorbed their magical power and activated and regenerated, and they noticed a growing ball inside it. The phrase caused the underground area their in to collapse but they escaped using Gate but the phrase is still intact and the battle begins on the surface. The phrase is solid as send when Touya’s sword breaks, it also has regenerative abilities so even if it’s damage pd, it regenerates, and since it absorbs magic, direct spells will not work so indirect magic will work as seen when Linze forms a giant as atop it and drops it. As the battle continues, Touya then thought that the growing ball inside it is it’s power supply so he uses Aports on it and Elze crushes it and the phrase stops moving and the battle ends.

Linze inspects the broken phrase and notes that it’s properties are similar, similar in a way that both does magic amplification, build-up of magical energies, and the discharge of said energies. They then reported this Duke Alfred and Alfred said that he’ll have people investigating the matter.

Chapter IV - The Royal Family

When Touya was in the underground place, he took pictures of the ancient writing and so He was using a null spell, drawing that acted like a printer and copied the pictures onto paper. Then he bundled it up and went to the Duke’s house using gate to deliver it but upon arriving, the Duke is about to leave. When the duke sees Touya, he takes him and bring him to Tristwin Ernes Belfast, the King’s mansion. The duke explains that the king was poisoned and he was hoping that Touya can use Recovery to heal him. And the duke explains that the attempted kidnapping of Sue and this incident is most likely the same mastermind and that their motive was that they do not support the king making an alliance with the beast man country, Mismede, because they are lower beings and they should just take their resources by force instead. When they arrived and was heading to the king’s room, they encountered Count Balsa, a suspicious man who, according to both Touya and the King, looks like a toad. Count Balsa then said that the perpetrator which was the mismedian ambassador has been captured and locked up. When they arrive at the king’s room, the people there were the king himself, his wife, his daughter, the Belfast general, the Belfast Court Magician, and the royal family’s physician. Then after some short introductions, Touya successfully uses Recovery in the King and is healed. Then Touya inspects the crime scene, a room where the king, other notable people of Belfast like Count Balsa, and the mismedian ambassador, Olga ate. Touya uses searched for poison using the null spell search and finds that the poison was on the cup itself and not the wine that Olga has given. Touya calls everyone including Count Balsa to find the perpetrator, Touya drinks from the wine straight from the bottle which surprises everyone and everyone worriedly asks him if he’s okay which he is, then Touya gives a cup of wine to general Leon Blitz which he drinks, Touya then give Count Balsa a cup of wine, the cup that was the king’s, which he drank and acted like he was poisoned, but Touya reveals that he has already wiped the poison of so he is caught and was later executed.

Thanks go around and the king wanted to give Touya a reward but he declines saying it’s the only natural thing to do. And when talking, Touya notices that Yumina stares intently at him which makes him question if he had done anything to offend her until she declares to her parents that she wants to marry him which makes Touya spit out the tea he was drinking. Touya objects saying that he’s just an adventurer and that they’re still too young but the parents reply saying that it’s normal to get married young and that they got married even younger (Yumina is 12 years old while Touya is 15 years old). But Touya still objects so the parents compromise saying that Yumina will live with Touya for two years as a fiancé and if he doesn’t like her they can break up so Touya reluctantly agrees.

Touya meets with his party Yumina announces that she wants to join the adventurers guild because she wants to support Touya, she also says that she was trained in magic and archery by court magician Charlotte and General Leon so she should be alright. Also, Yumina has affinity for wind, earth, and dark magic, the ones that Linze doesn’t have. So they register Yumina as an adventurer and take a subjugation quest for King Apes. Yumina uses dark magic to summon her contracted beasts, a pack of 7 wolves to search for the King Apes and they eventually find the monsters. They then fight and win and during the fight it is seen that Yumina is a good support using both magician and archer and so they accept her into the party.

Touya saw how useful summoning magic was and decided to ask Yumina to teach her. So she does, she draws a magic circle up using chalk that has tiny spellsstones in it, then she states that to summon a beast, one must be contracted to it and to form a contract, the summoner must fulfill their trial, these trials vary a lot, some for simple trials like to feed them until they’re full and some to fight the beast themselves. She also says that the magic circle prevents the beasts from harming them unless the summoners step inside the magic circle. And that the summoned beasts are random. So Touya pours mana into the magic circle and summons a large white tiger, the white monarch, a heavenly beast said to be on of the most powerful beast in existence. The beasts trial was to see the magic capacity of the summoner so Touya pours as much as he can into the beast but because Touya is “blessed” by god, he has tremendous magic capacity and recovery and so the white monarch was “overdosed” with magic and collapsed so the white monarch accepts Touya as his master. The beast says that to complete the contract, touya must give her a name so Touya gives her the name Kohaku and the contract is completed. Since Touya has tremendous magic capacity and recovery, Kohaku asks to remain in this realm indefinitely because to maintain a beast in the realm where touya lives, he must constantly use magic and so he agrees but says that her appearance might scare people so Kohaku turns into a small white tiger cub that the girls find adorable and hugs her a lot.

Interlude I - The Adventurers

Elze is having “girl problems” and so they rest so Touya goes to the guild library to look at a beast almanac and learns many things, he can’t use magic since there is a barrier in the library which touya speculates is to prevent people from stealing books so he also can’t use drawing to copy it but he can use his photo camera. And when his time is finished, he leaves and saw two adventurers fighting. He says, “...How stupid. They should at least take their fight somewhere out of everyone’s way.” but they heard him so they threatened him and saying things like angering and making them jealous because he always shows his girls off also that adventuring is for adults. So they fight and Touya wins. He learns that their from Red-ranked parties called steel fangs and poison snakes so they both outranked Touya’s party by one level because they are green ranked.

The next day, Linze started having “girl problems” so she and Elze stayed behind while Touya, Yae, and Yumina took on a quest and when they finished and we’re about to report it to the guild when the party steel fangs numbering nine members tried to ambush them but they lost as punishment, Touya strips them, ties them upside down, and threatens them that if they’ll do anything like that again that he’ll release photos of them in the capital. Then Touya remembered about Linze and Elze and that the other party might go after them so he used gate and when he arrived he saw seven people collapsed outside the Silver Moon inn. that turned out to be the poison snakes with at was defeated by Dolan and Barral that turned out to be red-ranked adventurers before and so Touya took care of them they same way with the steel fangs and hung them across each other. And soon after, the party disbanded and left Reflet.

Interlude II - A Day in the Capital

The girls of the party talk about Touya. They ask Yumina why she chose Touya and she said that she’d not sure because there are numerous reasons which could possibly be the answer but to them they knew it was “love at first sight” because they know it too. But then Yumina asks them their impression of Touya and ultimately p, their answer is weird (but it didn’t seem in a bad way).

Touya and only Touya is chosen for a quest to “guide” Dolan, Barral and other shop owners to the capital so that they can stock up. He was chosen because of his null spell gate. And so Dolan, Barral, and the other went to the capital but before they buy their necessities, the went to brothels and invited Touya and he is confused as to why they would go to brothels but Barral tells Touya that Dolan is a widower and so he’s lonely and to also keep this a secret from Micah. And so he instead he went to the guild to find a quest to spend his time and he accepts a demolition quest.

It was a mansion that had it’s inhabitants commit suicide after being tricked by Count Balsa. Touya was in charged of cleaning the shed which was still possible to fix so it won’t be destroyed but living armors appeared. Living armors are spawned by the retreat of those who died and in this case the regrets of the family who committed suicide. Touya shot out a Holy Javelin which destroyed one of many living armor and the shed. Since living armor are undead creatures, Touya thought that any light spells would kill it so he picked up a sword and enchanted it with cure heal and it works, touya exterminates that living armors. He was reprimanded by the foreman for destroying the shed but gets of the hook as he protected them from the living armor. And so he met up with, Dolan, Barral, and the others and they used gate to get back to the silver moon inn. Micah questions them as to why they took so long and eventually found out that Dolan went to a brothel, she’s mad not because he went to a brothel but because he didn’t tell her because it increases their costs which she is trying to decrease.

Touya then saw a flyer of the brothel Dolan went and looked at it but the girls appear and he reflexively hides it behind his back so he goes up the stairs and into his room backwards which makes the girl reiterate that Touya is weird. And because of exhaustion, Touya falls asleep without even hiding the leaflet so when the girls came to wake him up, they saw it and interrogated him for almost an hour so Touya decides never to accept Dolan or Barral’s quest for an all boys quest ever again.

Afterword

Hello there, this is Patora Fuyuhara.

I’m not really used to appearing in the public(?) eye like this, so forgive me if I seem a touch nervouth. Whoops, bit my tongue there...

Er, well then, this work is an improved and revised version of a story I started working on back in 2013 for the “Shosetsuka ni Narou” website. I originally began writing this story completely as a hobby, but I was able to get it physically published like this thanks to all of my readers. Really, thank you all for your support. As I write this, I’m actually still worrying that the book will never actually make it to print, but, well, if you’re reading this, then that must mean my worries were misplaced... I hope they were.

In Another World With My Smartphone, or Isekai Smartphone for short, is a story set in a world like a large hotpot, into which the ingredient known as Touya is suddenly thrown one day. From there I added a little bit of seasoning, skimmed a bit off the top, had some people do some taste-testing to see if it was any good or not, got informed on things that I’d done wrong, and then like some blindfolded bring-your-own-ingredients food party this work... became increasingly difficult to compare to a hotpot. Anyway, Hobby Japan really has guts to bring a blindfold-hotpot to the dinner table like this... But that’s just how I feel about it. I’ve already gone and made it now, though. All that’s left is to hope that this first volume was to the liking of anyone who read it. Did you enjoy it at all? I plan to continue adding more and more ingredients to this blindfold-hotpot from now on, too. Something like a spy maid and a goth-loli girl, for starters. If you enjoyed this volume, then please continue to support Isekai Smartphone from now on! Thank you so much, really. Now that the story is being physically published, I’ve decided to go back adding and removing little bits to keep the lore a bit more consistent throughout the series. With that said, I haven’t made any major changes to the story, I’m not about to replace new characters, and I won’t be erasing any existing characters or anything extreme like that, so fans of the original web novel can rest easy knowing I haven’t mutated the work in any major way. Come to think of it, I’d just like to mention that, in keeping with the title of this series, I’ve written the whole story so far on my smartphone without relying on my PC at all, except for making backup copies, of course. I guess you could call my story “Patora Fuyuhara, In The Real World With My Smartphone.”

Personally I find I’m able to type much quicker on my phone than a keyboard, so this way is simply more convenient for me. Though sometimes I end up typing too fast and leaving a lot of typos behind, so checking for mistakes like that can eat a few hours away. I do sometimes worry about accidentally dropping my phone or spilling water all over it, but thankfully I’ve managed to avoid any problems like that so far. Lately I’ve been thinking that I’d really like to get a newer model. I’m always using it for long periods of time, so the battery’s constantly on the verge of death... My wrist and hand actually start to hurt a bit if I’ve been typing on my smartphone for too long, so sometimes I’ll even end up switching to typing left-handed. That’s what I’m doing right now, actually. Could you tell?

Another thing is that, when I’m writing stories on my smartphone, from an outside perspective it just looks like I’m constantly playing games on my phone all day, which is unfortunate. I get the feeling I’d look a lot cooler sitting at a desk, typing up my stories while sipping coffee. I already know that wouldn’t really suit me, though. I’m aware that Touya didn’t really make much use of his own smartphone in this volume, but don’t worry, it’ll start gradually powering up from now on!

Finally, some words of thanks. Thank you, Eiji Usatsuka, for all of the wonderful illustrations. I look forward to working with you from now on.

Thank you, K, for reaching out to me and agreeing to be my editor. Thank you, everyone else at the Hobby Japan editorial department. A great big thank you to everyone involved in the publishing of this work.

And last, but certainly not least, a great big thank you to all of my readers, both those of you who might have read the web novel version of this work on “Shosetsuka ni Narou,” and those of you reading this story for the first time with this officially published version. Thank you so very much!
