Versus Plot & Summary

Versus is a battle fantasy set in a world ravaged by powerful enemies. The world was ruled by a demon king and his 47 subordinates, and the heroes fought bravely against the demon army but were defeated.

In the midst of this, the hero Halou’s comrade, Zaby, succeeded in summoning soldiers from another world. The hero comes from a different timeline from the real world. They thought they could defeat the demon army with their modern equipment, which was different from theirs but was short-lived.

They also learned that they were attacked by another “enemy of humanity” and sought help from Halou and his team.
