The original light novel series is distributed by J-Novel Club, and the premise is described as follows:

In a tale featuring a middle-aged Japanese salaryman, a schoolgirl, and a speedy truck driver, a rescue attempt unfolds. As you might guess, I was that man attempting the rescue – though “was” is key, as the story swiftly transports me into the realm of my beloved game, Braves and Blades, with the character Rex Tauren.

Meiji's I'm Not the Hero!

Rex, an adept level 50 all-rounder, boasts abundant class skills but grapples with a major flaw – being a minor character, his growth dwindles post-tutorial, rendering him almost useless.

To clarify, my new quest entails pinpointing the real protagonist of BB and passing on the weight of world-saving endeavors. My desire? Just to relax and… Wait a second! Why does everyone persistently label me as the hero?!
