For those unfamiliar with the story, the light novel series is available in English through J-Novel Club and follows Yogiri Takatou. He awakens during a school trip to utter chaos and mayhem, discovering that his entire class has been transported to another world. To make matters worse, he slept through the mysterious Sage’s bestowal of powers to his classmates.
Abandoned by their friends as bait for a nearby dragon, Yogiri, a lowly Level 1000 monster, must reluctantly protect his only companion. Fortunately, he possesses a secret power—the ability to invoke Instant Death with a single thought. Now, if he can stay awake long enough to utilize it…
Originally, Fujitaka unveiled the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2016 before Earth Star Entertainment started publishing it with illustrations by Chisato Naruse.
