    "Life is a shitty game. No matter how hard you try, you cannot overcome the characteristics given to you at birth." To Tomozaki Fumiya, who feels he is trash-tier and can never compete with the god-tier humans in the world, this phrase is the truth. His one pride is in his position as Nanashi, Japan's number one player in the video game Atafami. However, one day, when he meets the rank two player face to face, his stance is challenged. Is life actually the greatest game of all?

    A vida é um jogo ruim. Esta frase clichê é, infelizmente, uma realidade. No entanto, a vida não tem regras simples e fáceis. O que tem é irracionalidade e desigualdade. Os fortes dizem que eles têm muita liberdade, mas os fracos não têm escolha a não ser viver um estilo de vida esmagadoramente desfavorecido. Portanto, é um jogo ruim. Não há nenhum erro nisso já que eu, o melhor jogador do Japão, estou declarando isso. No entanto, algumas pessoas que estão no mesmo nível que eu, dizem o seguinte: “A vida é um jogo muito bom”. A heroína perfeita e de vontade forte da escola, Hinami Aoi. Além disso, ela falou: “Eu vou te ensinar as regras do jogo da vida”. Normalmente, eu não acreditaria nessas palavras.

The British Museum in the C.M.B. story, which had custody of the recondite scientific curiosities and artifacts collected by explorer/adventurers and stored in a Wunderkammer, decided to study the dusty arcana in the 19th century. Three investigators dubbed the "Magi" were appointed to do the research, each given a ring embossed with the letters C.M.B.
