About the Story
Black Summoner is a popular Isekai light novel series and it follows a young man named Kelvin as he wakes up in another world and discovers that he agreed to exchange memories of his previous life for high-level skills in summoning and magic.

From the Black Knight of the Ancient Castle of Evil Spirits to the demon within the Hidden Cave of the Sage, he revels in the fight against one formidable foe after another. Join this OP adventurer in an exhilarating and epic saga as he and his allies carve their way into the annals of history!
