Short Synopsis

Prologue

God had stated the truth, the fact that he messed up and killed Touya. Touya calmly accepted it as the old man bowed down to him to apologize. God reveals that he killed Touya accidentally by throwing thunder down and sincerely apologizes again. God then implies that Touya is a bit too calm, despite the fact he is now dead. Touya responds to this by saying he still is having a hard time believing it but what done is done and there's really no reason to point fingers. God realizes and states that Touya is truly a wonderful person and says to forgive his carelessness. God asks Touya if there are any small favors he can grant him. It was a cellular telephone and to make it function in the world he was to be resurrected in. God says it is possible but there will be restrictions like no communication with just anyone, no texting, no internet, or posting to social media. God also tells Touya he'll link battery power to magic which will keep it from running out of power. Touya, confused by God saying magic asks him if people in this new world can actually use magic. God answers yes to this and says in due time he'll be able to use it as well. God gives Touya basic abilities a boost in order to prevent Touya from dying due to mere probability. God calls the boost a little present from him. God states he can't interfere with the lower world and should he need any advice, he can call him on his phone. God then smiles and says goodbye to Touya, who instantly passes out.

Chapter I - In Another World

Touya woke up on the outskirts of Reflet. Touya was immediately contacted by God, saying that he does not want to create a big commotion by transporting Touya into a town so he settled on transferring Touya outside the town. God also said that Touya can use the map on the phone to travel to the nearest town. After Touya's conversation with God, Touya settled on traveling to Reflet but he realized that he does not have any basic necessities. Suddenly, Touya noticed a carriage passing by. The carriage stopped with a moustached gentleman coming out of it, looking at Touya's clothes meticulously and immediately fascinated with it. The gentleman offered Touya to trade his clothes to the gentleman and in return the gentleman will offer him a new set of clothes, a ride to Reflet and sum of money. After three hours of travel, Touya arrived at the gentleman's shop in Reflet. Touya realized that he cannot read upon seeing the sign of the gentleman's shop. Touya also learned the name of the moustached gentleman is Zanac Zenfield and the gentleman's shop is Fashion King Zanac. Zanac paid Touya's clothes for 10 gold coins. Touya asked Zanac if Zanac knows an inn in Reflet and Zanac answered Silver Moon which is relatively near from his shop. Touya bids farewell to Zanac and he started to find the inn.

Touya arrived at a place with a crescent moon on its sign and inferred that he had arrived at the inn. Touya entered the inn and met a pretty looking woman around 20 years old with red hair tied in a ponytail. Touya asked about the cost of stay per night and the woman answered that for one night with a meal included in the morning and evening is worth two copper coins. Since Touya does not know if it is cheap or expensive he asked the woman again about the nights that he can stay at the inn for one gold coin. The woman replied that he can stay for 50 nights with one gold coin. Touya then realized the worth of the gold coins and he paid for a month stay at the inn. The woman asked for Touya's name and he responded Mochizuki Touya. The woman thought that Touya's first name is Mochizuki and Touya corrected her. The woman asked Touya if he was born from Eashen due to the name and surname is reversed and Touya replied vaguely that he was born somewhere around that place. Touya ordered lunch to be delivered to his room and immediately he went straight to his room to rest for a while. After eating lunch, Touya bid farewell to Micah, the inn-keeper woman, and strolled in the town.

While walking in the town, Touya observed that many people carry weapons from axes, knives, swords to whips. Touya began to ponder if he needs to buy a weapon and reminds himself that he needs to find a way to make money. As Touya's thoughts increases, he suddenly heard an argument off the main street towards the back alley. Touya's curiosity tingles and he decided to look. Upon entering the back alley, Touya saw four people, two man and two woman, quarreling at the end of the path. (to be continued)

Afterword

Hello there, this is Patora Fuyuhara.

I’m not really used to appearing in the public(?) eye like this, so forgive me if I seem a touch nervouth. Whoops, bit my tongue there...

Er, well then, this work is an improved and revised version of a story I started working on back in 2013 for the “Shosetsuka ni Narou” website. I originally began writing this story completely as a hobby, but I was able to get it physically published like this thanks to all of my readers. Really, thank you all for your support. As I write this, I’m actually still worrying that the book will never actually make it to print, but, well, if you’re reading this, then that must mean my worries were misplaced... I hope they were.

In Another World With My Smartphone, or Isekai Smartphone for short, is a story set in a world like a large hotpot, into which the ingredient known as Touya is suddenly thrown one day. From there I added a little bit of seasoning, skimmed a bit off the top, had some people do some taste-testing to see if it was any good or not, got informed on things that I’d done wrong, and then like some blindfolded bring-your-own-ingredients food party this work... became increasingly difficult to compare to a hotpot. Anyway, Hobby Japan really has guts to bring a blindfold-hotpot to the dinner table like this... But that’s just how I feel about it. I’ve already gone and made it now, though. All that’s left is to hope that this first volume was to the liking of anyone who read it. Did you enjoy it at all? I plan to continue adding more and more ingredients to this blindfold-hotpot from now on, too. Something like a spy maid and a goth-loli girl, for starters. If you enjoyed this volume, then please continue to support Isekai Smartphone from now on! Thank you so much, really. Now that the story is being physically published, I’ve decided to go back adding and removing little bits to keep the lore a bit more consistent throughout the series. With that said, I haven’t made any major changes to the story, I’m not about to replace new characters, and I won’t be erasing any existing characters or anything extreme like that, so fans of the original web novel can rest easy knowing I haven’t mutated the work in any major way. Come to think of it, I’d just like to mention that, in keeping with the title of this series, I’ve written the whole story so far on my smartphone without relying on my PC at all, except for making backup copies, of course. I guess you could call my story “Patora Fuyuhara, In The Real World With My Smartphone.”

Personally I find I’m able to type much quicker on my phone than a keyboard, so this way is simply more convenient for me. Though sometimes I end up typing too fast and leaving a lot of typos behind, so checking for mistakes like that can eat a few hours away. I do sometimes worry about accidentally dropping my phone or spilling water all over it, but thankfully I’ve managed to avoid any problems like that so far. Lately I’ve been thinking that I’d really like to get a newer model. I’m always using it for long periods of time, so the battery’s constantly on the verge of death... My wrist and hand actually start to hurt a bit if I’ve been typing on my smartphone for too long, so sometimes I’ll even end up switching to typing left-handed. That’s what I’m doing right now, actually. Could you tell?

Another thing is that, when I’m writing stories on my smartphone, from an outside perspective it just looks like I’m constantly playing games on my phone all day, which is unfortunate. I get the feeling I’d look a lot cooler sitting at a desk, typing up my stories while sipping coffee. I already know that wouldn’t really suit me, though. I’m aware that Touya didn’t really make much use of his own smartphone in this volume, but don’t worry, it’ll start gradually powering up from now on!

Finally, some words of thanks. Thank you, Eiji Usatsuka, for all of the wonderful illustrations. I look forward to working with you from now on.

Thank you, K, for reaching out to me and agreeing to be my editor. Thank you, everyone else at the Hobby Japan editorial department. A great big thank you to everyone involved in the publishing of this work.

And last, but certainly not least, a great big thank you to all of my readers, both those of you who might have read the web novel version of this work on “Shosetsuka ni Narou,” and those of you reading this story for the first time with this officially published version. Thank you so very much!
