Summary for Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita

The hero differs from the usual protagonists of Isekai stories in that he is reincarnated as a sword. He begins his quest by appearing in the middle of a beast-infested forest, only to stumble upon an injured girl desperately fleeing for her life. The couple saves her from her attackers, meets and the girl introduces herself as Fran. He has a difficult past, having been enslaved and mistreated by his tribe, the Black Cats. Since the hero cannot remember the name of his past life, the young and stubborn Fran gives him the name “Shishou” and becomes its bearer. From there, Shishou and Fran become a formidable team, embarking on missions to liberate the oppressed and bring justice.
