Suddenly, high school student Subaru Natsuki has been summoned to another world on the way back from the convenience store. With the biggest crisis of his life being summoned to another world, and with no sign of the one who summoned him, things become even worse when he is attacked. But when he is saved by a mysterious, silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru attempts to return the favor by helping her track down something that was stolen from her. When they finally manage to get a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and killed by someone. Subaru then awakens in the place he was summoned and notices he gained the ability “Returns by Death” and has become a helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time to a certain point by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death?
The main protagonist. On the way home from the convenience store, he suddenly finds himself transported into another world. He has the ability that he calls “Return by Death” to go back in time when he dies, with only himself remembering what happened. He cannot tell anyone about this ability; when he tries to do so he suffers pain and also gives off the “scent of the Jealous Witch”, which attracts monsters and is unnerving to those who can detect it. Despite being a hikikomori and gamer in his real world, Subaru does a bit of workout and seems to know basic hand-to-hand combat, making him not completely weak.
The main female protagonist. She is a silver-haired half-elf girl who is one of the candidates to become the next ruler in the royal election.

She is known for killing her ‘prey’ by cutting open their stomach. In the final timeline of the stolen insignia, she is defeated by Reinhard and retreats vowing to come after Subaru again.
