> The main character is reborn as a character from a game he played in his previous life. This character falls into ruin along with the villainess, spending the last of their years together. A man named Kururi Helan.
No details of this decline is written inside the game, it can’t be understood why this sub-character ended up with the villainess route. However, that is of no importance.
Living as a needy farmer along with someone is unpleasant, so the main character seeks a profession. For now, he aims for becoming a blacksmith as he originally had skill in it.
WN chapters split following the LN release (at the best of my guessing game) and added color illustrations. A few volumes ended up really short so the LN must have quite a bit of more content but that was never translated.
This novel has been on hiatus at volume 9 since ~2018 so it's probably as good as completed like this.
