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?

Isekai, you are just like a bad habit and you are perfectly aware of the fact that it is bad for you, but you can never have enough of it.

In a nutshell
Zenjirou Yamai decides to take a walk on his day off, but he is summoned in a completely unknown world by a gorgeous woman. Upon arriving in the new world, the woman makes an offer worth Yamai’s while. I mean, who would not want to marry a hot queen, right?
