Summary for Yuusha ga Shinda!: Murabito no Ore ga Hotta Otoshiana ni Yuusha ga Ochita Kekka
Far to the north of the world is the Gates of Hell, a portal once used by the Demon Lord to invade the human realm. Thanks to the legendary hero Shion Bladearts, owner of Excalibur, and his loyal fellowship, the gate has been sealed and the demonic menace defeated. Unfortunately, the seal was incomplete and has begun to weaken, allowing the demons to attack again. Concerned about the safety of his village, selfish and perverted farmer Touka Scott digs booby traps to ward off demons. But fear not, because Shion is on his way to close the gates of hell again and save humanity.
Or at least he was, as the legendary hero is dead after falling into one of the traps Touka dug. Luckily, dealing with the dead is Necromancer Anri Haynesworth's specialty. Though unable to revive him, Anri is at least able to salvage her mission by forcing Touka's soul into Shion's rotting body and dragging him to Hell's Gate instead. Yuna Yunis, Touka's childhood friend, doesn't want to be left behind and goes with her. Together, as the most unsuitable group, the three set off to try to save the world.
