Synopsis of Isekai Ojisan
Autumn 2017. The nephew, Takafumi, went to the hospital to visit his uncle, who had just woken up from a seventeen-year-old coma. However, he seems to have lost his mind, as he claims that he was in another world called “Grand Bahamar” during all this time, and even seems to speak a strange language. But everything changes when his uncle, an ordinary human, shows him that he learned to use magic in the other world. Thus, when Takafumi realizes that the magic his uncle uses is completely real, he proposes that she use his skills to become a successful YouTuber. Now taking care of him, Takafumi and his uncle start to get involved in the streaming life, while his uncle tells him from time to time about his life in the other world.
