17 years ago, Takafumi’s uncle Otaku was in a coma, but now he has returned as a man raised from his grave. Soon after, Takafumi makes two strange discoveries: His uncle values video games above all else, and, while in a coma, he is actually transported to another world as a hero! Now, Takafumi not only has to share a room with a literally magical uncle, but also has him trace two decades of history — smartphones, high-speed internet, current anime manga great… and tragic end of the 90s console wars!
