Mukouda Tsuyoshi was nothing special in modern Japan, so when he was summoned to a world of swordplay and sorcery, he thought he was ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Too bad the kingdom that summoned him only got him by mistake! Not only was he not one of the three summoned heroes, but his stats were laughable compared to theirs. On top of that, there's something really sketchy about this kingdom... "Ah, these people are the kind to try and use the Hero," he realized, and immediately left to make his own way in this other world.<br /><br />The only thing Mukouda can rely on is his unique skill: the "Online Supermarket," a skill that allows him to buy modern goods in a fantasy world. It's useless for combat, but if he plays his cards right, he could lead a comfortable life, maybe? At least, that's what Mukouda thinks, but it turns out modern food bought with this skill has some absurd effects! What happens when Mukouda introduces ridiculously tasty modern cooking to a fantasy world like this? He gets some ridiculous repeat customers begging for more...!

Everything I’ve Never Seen<br />*************************<br />If you’re like most people today, you know kids who don’t like to read, or feel discouraged by how challenging it can be. Maybe even your own kids.<br />And who can blame them? Today’s world is full of stimulation, bright colors, TVs, computers, phones—and they all take up so much time in our lives that and as a result, our kids are reading less. <br />But reading and interacting with the environment have been proven to have a powerful impact on children’s educational attainments and even on acquiring basic life skills. So it’s more important than ever today to help our kids love reading by themselves, even from the earliest stages. <br />How can we teach kids to read? How can we help kids read better? And how can we instill a love of reading in today’s kids so they’ll want to read more and more?<br />Sigal Adler has developed this interactive series, Everything I’ve Never Seen, out of the belief that despite the fact that the importance of rhyme isn’t emphasized in schools when learning to read and write, this is a method which has come into use more and more over time. <br />Children with dyslexia, for instance, find it much easier to understand words when they rhyme rather than dissecting them into letters and syllables.<br />Meeting with children in kindergarten and the early grades, Sigal has met many children who have succeeded in learning to read and write thanks to rhyme. It’s simple, enjoyable – and it works.<br />Now you and your kids are invited to learn together… grow together… laugh together, as you explore the hilarious interactive world of Everything I’ve Never Seen!<br />

Mukouda Tsuyoshi – alias, ‘Mukohda’ – was an ordinary Japanese salaryman until he was summoned to a fantasy world of swords and magic. Mukohda’s unique skill made him the only person in this world with access to modern Japanese products, but the real reason he caught the attention of the legendary magic beast, Fenrir, was his ability to cook delicious food!<br /><br />Now with a ludicrously overpowered Fenrir and a baby slime in tow, Mukohda and friends continue their laid-back journey in search of easy-living in a new kingdom. In spite of his best efforts, it seems Mukohda can’t help but get wrapped up in the adventurer lifestyle. Will this reluctant “hero” win fame, fortune, and fair maidens while he tries to fly under the radar? With food this good, he’s bound to make new friends whether he likes it or not — much to the dismay of his number 1 fan, Ninrir, the goddess with a sweet tooth. Unfortunately for her, she isn’t the only denizen of the divine realm to take notice of Mukohda’s access to otherworld goods and sweets, and the other goddesses might have demands of their own!
