The Evolution Fruit Storyline
Hiiragi Seiichi is ugly and disgusting, at least when it comes to his classmates, who keep insulting him. One day, however, he hears a voice through the loudspeaker system that pretends to be God. This says that you should prepare for a journey into another world. A fantasy world where there are game-like elements such as levels, values and abilities.
But not only Seiichi should experience his own Isekai adventure, but the whole school. Since his classmates had formed groups and he was excluded again, he is stranded alone in the new world, where he directly meets a gorilla who proposes to him. Before he can agree, they find the “fruit of evolution” that completely changes their lives.
