Plot[edit | edit source]
Tsukasa Mikogami, Ringo Ōhoshi, Shinobu Sarutobi, Keine Kanzaki, Aoi Ichijō, Prince Akatsuki, and Masato Sanada are preternaturally gifted high school students dominating a variety of fields despite their young age. An 18 year old prime minister of Japan, a nuclear physicist, a journalist, a cancer-curing doctor, a master swordswoman, an illusionist, and an accomplished economist respectively, each of these specialists went to the same middle school. As a result, they decide to meet up again one day, but unfortunately their plane miraculously crash lands.
When they awake, they discover themselves not in Japan but in a fantastical, medieval world called Freyjagard. Sporting dragons, elves, and cat-eared and tailed people, also without any modern amenities, the seven high schoolers take the change in stride. Immediately they set about bringing modernity to this world, with Ringo Ōhoshi building a nuclear power plant and Masato Sanada quickly taking command of the local feudal economy, earning them riches along with modern power. Tsukasa Mikogami, the former prime minister, then sets about becoming the leader of the local town even as a local elf, Lyrule, begins to take an interest in him.
All the while, the seven geniuses continue to search for a way home.

Themes[edit | edit source]
A typical isekai trope of vanishing and appearing in a fantastical world, High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World is unique in that it breaks free of the bewilderment and cuts straight to mastery. Its seven protagonists are also united with a sense of justice that they all share, Tsukasa Mikogami having ousted his tyrant father as one example, and they seek to see their vision realized in the new world they find themselves in. Lastly, there is an element of temptation to be avoided, with their excellence making it easy to manipulate the locals, but they strive to resist the urge even so.
