Synopsis via ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko imprint:

I'm a dull nerd who lost consciousness after eating raw pork liver. When I thought I was reincarnated in another world, I was just a pig!


It was Jess, a girl who could read people's hearts, who helped me roll in the pig pen.


Buh! cute! From the perspective of a pig, the hem of the skirt is a glimpse of pure white.


"Oh, I can hear the voice of my heart ..."


It's bad! Desire is leaking!


"If you want it, just a little"


Eh ...!


A life that is taken care of by an innocent girl who accepts my desires like a beast (albeit a little bit). Hmmm, isn't it bad to be a pig?


This was supposed to be our crazy adventure ... but Jess, why are you aiming for your life?
