Plot Concept: Seven high school students are involved in an airplane crash. When they woke up, they found themselves in a parallel world where magic and beastmen exist. Of course, they panicked at their sudden unexpected predicament… or not? Instead, they create a power plant in a world that doesn’t have electricity, they did a little extra work and managed to take economic control over a metropolis, they managed to repay their gratitude to some oppressed citizens by upending a corrupt government, and basically do whatever they feel like?!
You probably guessed by now, but these high school kids aren’t normal. They are all high school prodigies who stood at the top of the fields of politics, economics, science, and medicine.
This is an otherworldly revolutionary tale featuring the Earth’s dream team of individuals with superior intellect and technology being thrown into a world where super technology doesn’t exist.
