The Other World's Books Depend on the Bean Counter, Volume 1: 03/16/23

The Other World's Books Depend on the Bean Counter, Volume 1

The Other World's Books Depend on the Bean Counter, Volume 1 by Kazuki Irodori (2020) is the first volume of an isekai BL manga series. Kondou, an overworked accountant from Japan is accidentally summoned to another world when the woman next to him is brought over to be the new holy maiden. Wanting to make a life for himself, he asks for a job managing the kingdom's books. He's put in with the others of the "Funnel Department."

Kondou, even in a new world, doesn't know how to take a break. He finds himself in a kingdom with no sense of how to balance the books. They're running inefficiently and on the brink of financial disaster. So he decides to fix things even at the cost of his own health.

And that's where the BL love comes in. I'm not going to describe it here because the set up is just so ridiculous that it needs to be experienced. Let's say it uses situational logic along the lines of having sex with a hyperthermic person to warm the up.

Despite the laughable ending, I'm invested in the shaky economic health of the kingdom. I've already bought volume two and will be reading it soon.

Five stars
