The Saga of Tanya the Evil begins with an unnamed salaryman in 2013 modern-era Tokyo. The salaryman was murdered by an unsatisfied coworker who he had fired due to poor performance at work. Who is then confronted by a mysterious entity calling itself as God. The salaryman didn’t believe in God as they are an atheist, criticizes and mock the entity by calling it ‘Being X.’ Disgruntled by the salaryman’s behavior, Being X then reincarnates the salaryman into another world. 

The salaryman is then reincarnated as Tanya Degurechaff, an orphaned girl in an alternate reality of Imperial Germany during World War I which dragged into the 1920s. By putting the salaryman in a trying time where death and conflict is always near, Tanya would be forced to turn to Being X for help. If Tanya does not either die from natural death or refuses to have faith in Being X, her soul will leave the cycle of reincarnation and be sent to hell for the countless sins she has done. 

Refusing to bend to Being X’s desire, Tanya decided to join the Empire’s Mage Corps and join the war in hope to climb up the ranks as fast as possible to ensure safety and the risk of getting killed. Even if she’s now in the body of a little girl, Tanya is a ruthless soldier in the battlefield.
