Seven Seas publishes the light novel series in North America, and it describes the story:
Office worker Leon is reincarnated into a particularly punishing dating sim video game, where women reign supreme and only beautiful men have a seat at the table. But Leon has a secret weapon: he remembers everything from his past life, which includes a complete playthrough of the very game in which he is now trapped. Watch Leon spark a revolution to change this new world in order to fulfill his ultimate desire…of living a quiet, easy life in the countryside!
Kazuya Miura (DRAMAtical Murder, Full Dive, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!) and Shin’ichi Fukumoto are directing the anime at ENGI. Kenta Ihara (Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious, Full Dive, Mieruko-chan, Saga of Tanya the Evil) is in charge of the series scripts, and Masahiko Suzuki (sub-character design on Full Dive, Overlord II and III, Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song-) is designing the characters. Kashitarō Itō will perform the anime’s opening theme song “Silent Minority,” while Riko Azuna will perform the ending theme song “selfish.”
