Synopsis of Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita

The hero differs from the usual protagonist of isekai stories by the fact that he is reincarnated as a sword. He begins his search for it by appearing in the middle of a forest infested with beasts, and encounters an injured girl who is frantically fleeing for her life. Saving her from her assailants, the couple meet and the girl introduces herself as Fran. She has a difficult past, as she has suffered slavery and mistreatment from her tribe, the Black Cats. As the hero is unable to remember her past life name, the strong-willed young Fran gives her the name “Shishou” and becomes her bearer. From then on, Shishou and Fran become a formidable team, embarking on missions to free the oppressed and bring justice.
