Ryuto is a Japanese bestselling author popularly known for Reborn as a Space Mercenary and Survival in Another World with My Mistress!

In Survival in Another World with My Mistress, we meet Kousuke, a young office worker from Japan who has a keen interest in strategy, survival, and building games like Minecraft. In an unexpected twist, he is transported to a mysterious other world without apparent explanation. Soon after arriving, Kousuke discovers he possesses powers similar to a character from his favorite survival games.

His early days in this new world involve several encounters with local wildlife. During one of these encounters, he meets Sylphyel, a young elf. Kousuke learns from Sylphyel that humans are disliked in this region, largely due to the actions of a human supremacy nation.
To protect him, Sylphyel claims Kousuke as her slave. However, this arrangement soon blossoms into a strong partnership. Together, they work to assist Sylphyel and her community, facing challenges posed by the local wildlife and other dangers of their newfound world.
Their bond grows as they navigate this strange land, with Kousuke using his game-inspired skills to aid in their survival and efforts to help the elf community. This unlikely duo’s journey is filled with adventures and challenges, testing their abilities and forging a deep connection between them.

The story is captivating and peppered with humor, particularly regarding the character’s unique powers. These powers often lead to amusing reactions from the people around them. While the story briefly touches on the system stats, it doesn’t delve deeply into them, sticking to the familiar tropes found in survival and crafting games.

The world portrayed in the story follows the conventions of its genre but manages to avoid being overly predictable or cookie-cutter. While some combat is involved, the narrative primarily focuses on the characters’ daily lives and highlights the absurdity of Minecraft-like abilities in an otherwise ordinary world. This blend of humor, gaming elements, and everyday situations adds a unique and entertaining dimension to the story.

The dynamics between Kousuke and Sylphyel are what every avid reader would appreciate. Their conversations are pretty straightforward and feature the typical nuances you’d expect. Their relationship also progresses rapidly, transitioning from enemies to falling in love in a single night, setting the tone for their interactions throughout the story.

Kousuke, being a slave, initially serves as a means of protection for him and later evolves into a role he willingly embraces. However, it’s worth noting that the story hints at the possibility of a harem, which is a common trope in most genres but may not appeal to everyone. Additionally, the main character does face major challenges, especially as the story progresses.

In 2019, Ryuto published Reborn as a Space Mercenary with the help of Tetsuhiro Nabeshima and Benjamin Daughtety as illustrator and translator, respectively.

Satou Takahiro finds himself in an extraordinary situation right from the start. He awakens to a life where he possesses the skills of an ace fighter pilot on a cutting-edge military starship. This stroke of luck places him in a highly advantageous position. However, there are some significant challenges he must overcome. He has no knowledge of the star system he’s in, lacks an understanding of the local cultures and customs at the nearby trading depot, and faces the daunting task of avoiding trouble with corrupt government officials. Despite these hurdles, Hiro’s circumstances are undeniably favorable.

Hiro’s journey takes an unexpected turn as he is thrust into a growing intergalactic conflict, assuming the role of a burgeoning bounty hunter. His past life as a dedicated gamer with exceptional FPS (first-person shooter) skills gives him an edge in piloting advanced starships and wielding laser pistols. However, his transition to this new life isn’t without its challenges. Hiro struggles with mundane tasks like operating the automatic cooker on his ship, navigating the local economy without going broke, and grappling with the presence of a bosomy girl he rescued from thugs in a less-than-ideal part of town. Despite his good-natured disposition, Hiro’s comically profound naiveté could complicate his path as a space mercenary.

This novel comfortably fits into soft science fiction with a penchant for thorough explanations. Readers who prefer to skip chapters dedicated to Hiro’s meticulous daily routines involving ship maintenance, grocery shopping, and interactions with his quasi-girlfriend might want to steer clear. Hiro, aged 27 and moderately wealthy thanks to his cockpit exploits, lives life as it comes. Whether it’s a day at the shooting range, a heated argument with a bureaucrat, a quest for imported soda, or clandestinely reprogramming the training room’s AI to maintain his lover’s physique, Hiro’s life is a mix of domesticity and intergalactic dogfights.

The book’s first half leans towards the peculiarly domestic, while the latter half delves into intergalactic space battles. In this narrative, Hiro alternates between dealing with space pirates and contemplating upgrades like a fancier shower that recycles water to save money.
Hiro is a kindhearted but remarkably naïve character. The book takes a unique approach by not emphasizing technical jargon and adopting a casual style of worldbuilding. Readers gradually learn about characters like Lieutenant Serena Holz, with royal blood, and her growing attraction to Hiro as circumstances unfold. The intricacies of mercenary work, camaraderie with the local guild, and the details of running a ship are all revealed through Hiro’s interactions, especially with Elma, an irritable tsundere elf.

While Hiro may have carried over some knowledge from his previous life, he learns a lot on the fly. This learning process leads to ingenious moments, such as Hiro shutting down his ship’s core temperature to cloak its heat signature during battle.

Reborn As A Space Merc may not be a fast-paced, dramatic space adventure, but features warm and mature characters. The story doesn’t shy away from depicting adult relationships, poverty, violence, and corruption amid the vastness of space. Hiro’s discussions about practical matters like adding an air purifier to his ship or negotiating fair payment for rare cargo add depth to the narrative.
