    Selling Points
    • Real-life fantasy world captured through the eyes of a hardcore online gamer.
    • A gem for fantasy anime/ranobe (light novel) lovers.
    • A splendid collection of isekai (otherworld) sceneries to immerse in.

    Every time a child watches animation, plays a role-playing game, or reads fantasy novels, he imagines that he actually exists in the world of those movies, games, or books and deserves to be part of it. This kind of excitement that people experienced in their childhood remains in their hearts even when they become adults. This book proves that those fantasy worlds exist not only in our imagination but also exist in our real world: a huge tree in an enchanted forest, a witch’s magic shop, a lodging where you can save your playing data, the remains of an ancient city that waits for the last boss...
    You will surely be fascinated experiencing real-life fantasy worlds through the author’s eyes. Perhaps you’ll start looking for your own.

    Mysterious solo brigade Shimizu Daisuke, the author of this book, has been an inhabitant of the world of online games. His ability to capture the real-life scenery as if it were a fantasy world is created by an insatiable desire for exploration of imaginary worlds in real-life. Shimizu Daisuke travels all over the world looking for thrilling moments in which he can feel his fantasy world as an actual place.
