Banished from the Hero’s Party Story
Banished from the Hero’s Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in The Countryside is a novel series written by Zappon.
It tells about Gideon Ragnason, who is the brother of the hero. Because his blessing is not improved, the sage of the hero party decides to banish him.
He accepts the demand and decides to stay in a rural village. He starts a new leaf by changing his name to Red and covering his past.
Though he is deemed a failure, his abilities are above average. When his friend’s child gets sick, he needs a rare plant to heal him. So, Red decided to run off to the middle of the forest to pick it up.
The timing could not be worse because a dangerous monster had made its home in the forest. The adventurer guild has banned anyone from entering the forest to avoid civilians encountering the lurking beast. Through bad luck, he confronts the monster but still manages to secure the medicine.
After successfully saving the child, the father presents him with a house. Red decides to open a drug store in his home. Not long after, the princess of Loggrevia decides to live with Red.
The story between Red and Rit begins. Something bad happens, and they work together to solve it. Unfortunately, their slow-life dream is still far off.
Meanwhile, Ruti, Red’s little sister, who is also a hero, becomes emotionally unstable. Because of her blessing as a hero, she puts her life at risk to defeat the demon lord. But now, the only one who gives her emotional support is no longer around.
After falling on their mission, the hero’s party is on the brink of falling apart. Ruti and Tisse decide to find Red. Ares, the one responsible for banishing Red, follows from behind.
They get the information that Red is residing in Zoltan. Ruti goes there with the new ancient weapon they found, which turns out to be an airship. Finally, Red and Ruti reunite.
This event creates a new problem. The blessing bestowed by the world is absolute. Ruti’s fate is sealed the moment she gets the hero’s blessing. She must defeat the demon lord or never enjoy her life.
That’s when the final arc in the first season happens. Ruti fights her own blessing, and Red supports Ruti by defeating anyone who forces her to give in to her fate.
