Sakamori Kagami was one of the best players in VRMMO Ark Earth Online as Danblf, a veteran Summoner with the gravity to match his elite status. When he falls asleep while playing one day, he is transported to a world where the game is reality, but instead of his almighty avatar, he is stuck in the body of a pretty young girl! He can’t let anyone know that this cute little cutie is really Danblf, so he takes the name “Mira” and pretends to be Danblf’s disciple. If it comes out, he’ll never live it!
