One day, average salaryman Yamai Zenjirou has an out-of-this-world experience—literally! He's pulled from Earth and dragged to another world where magic thrives and a gorgeous, powerful queen needs a consort. Now he's being pressured to marry that very monarch and help her bear a child. Will Zenjirou accept this life of lazy, luxurious love at the cost of leaving his home behind?

Preliminary (37/? eps)
If ever the phrase 'never judge a book by its cover' applied to anything it definitely applies to this series.

The cover art and description leads you to believe it's another run-of-the-mill wish fulfillment isekai dripping with fan service, but what you actually get is a deep, intriguing political drama wrapped in a heartwarming love story that has a healthy power dynamic and rich characters filled with personality, hopes, and dreams.

In a refreshing change from most romance-oriented Isekai, the protagonist consistently rejects the idea of forming a harem, even as the world literally thrusts additional suitors at him (for political reasons).
