Ch 1 “Hero summoning? What? What do you mean?”
My name is Akira Yano.
I have an average face. My study is so-so. My physical activities are neither good nor bad. I am an ordinary 17-year-old high school student.
I’m in an empty, blank room. Where am I…? Here? I’m pretty sure I was at home sleeping…
After a while, the light suddenly became stronger.
“Pow pow pow! Yoo-hoo! It’s the goddess~♪ Congratulations! You’ve been chosen to be summoned as the hero~!”
What is it? Is this gal-like goddess…?
“What! Who looks like a gal?”
Did she read my mind?
“Fufu-n ♪ It’s natural because I’m a goddess~”
Is she real? So I’m going to another world?
“That’s what it means~! Then, before you go. I’ll give you a “Beginner’s Pack”. First, I’m going to give you a 4-piece set of language comprehension, appraisal, item box, and body enhancement. Yes, I gave them to you!”
What a lightweight. This goddess.
“Now all that’s left are the unique skills…”
“Oh my God! Goddess! That man is not a hero! It’s a mistake!”
“The one chosen to be summoned as the hero was Sano Akira-san, and this is Yano Akira-san!”
“What? Then, did I make a mistake? I’m sorry. I’ll send you home right away. Eee~y!”
“Goddess! You still have to remove the blessing…”
Then, I went blank and lost consciousness.
When I woke up, it was my room. I looked at my phone and saw that it was 7:00 AM.
“Big brother? Are you awake?”
This is my little sister, Sakura. She’s cute today, even though she’s my own sister.
She is a freshman, one year younger than me, who attends the same high school, although lately she has become a bit cocky and spouts her venomous tongue at me. Unlike me, she has grown up to be a girl who looks like our mother and can be called beautiful. I heard that there is already a fan club for Sakura…
“How long are you really sleeping? You’re so sloppy. You should be firm as my brother. You’re embarrassing me!”
She’s really becoming a bit tongue-tied. She used to be so cute when she used to stick around and call me big brother.
“Okay, okay, I’m getting up. I’ll wake up now.”
By the way, I had a strange dream…
Summoning a hero, or is it a light novel? What’s more, it’s a mistake.
Oh, she gave me a beginner’s pack or something like that, didn’t she? Well, there’s no such thing, but it’s called “Appraisal.”
Then a status window appeared in front of me.
Hey, what the hell? This?

Appraisal result: No boyfriend. She has already been confessed several times, but she refuses all of them. She has an extreme love affair with her brother. She has a fetish for smelling her brother’s shirts. My latest problem is that I am annoyed by people who call themselves my fan club. My brother doesn’t care about me, so I try to get his attention by acting cold. My best friend is Miyuki Yoshinaga. Aya Yamamoto.]
What the hell is this? Could it be the power that that goddess gave me?
What? Wasn’t that a dream?
I was dumbfounded, and Sakura said with a cold look in her eyes.
“I don’t care what you say, but you need to eat your breakfast and get out of bed! You’ll be late for school!”
“Oh, oh… I’ll be right there.”
“… You’re a weird brother.”
At any rate, let’s eat breakfast.
I think about this morning as I walk along the way to school.
If that dream was real, it means that the goddess gave me the beginner’s pack and brought me back to the present day. It seems that Sakura can’t see that appraisal. If that’s the case, what about my other abilities?
Either way, I need to check…
First, I ran the appraisal on myself.

I came across this.
Hmmm… It certainly shows up as skills. But still, my ability is average. It makes me sad to see it. I guess because it’s mine, that’s why I can’t get an appraisal result like Sakura’s. Instead, it’s a skill display. Let’s examine them one by one.
It seems to be the ability to disclose all kinds of information. It seems to be able to grasp personal information, corporate information, the value of things, authenticity, and even the transition of stocks.
This is quite a cheat. It’s like I can know everything about the other person’s feelings and problems. It is not mind-reading, but it seems to be able to see the state of the person.
This is just as it says. I think I am speaking in Japanese, but the other person understands me in his/her own language. I tried it and could have a conversation without any difficulty. It was strange for me to hear a foreigner speaking fluent Japanese.
This is very useful. I don’t know how much capacity it has, but it seems to hold quite a lot. More importantly, it seems that time is suspended in the space, and even when I put iced or hot coffee in it to try it out, the state did not change.
It’s hard to use this one… it’s called “LV” but if I had to use an analogy, it would be something like this.
Lv1: First-class athlete level
Lv2 Professional fighter level
Lv3: Can crush rocks with bare hands
Lv4: Can pop a bullet
Lv5: Can knock down a tank.
I don’t know the details, but if I had to make an analogy, it would be something like this: after lvl 3, it’s clearly out of character. I think the CIA or NASA would come if I used this kind of thing.
Anyway, the blessing I got from the goddess was real.
Isn’t this crazy..? I’ve been normal until now, but if I had this power, wouldn’t I be a winner in life? Perhaps in another world it might not be a big deal for beginners, but what if I had this ability in the modern world?
I was filled with anticipation for the joyous life ahead of me.
