What’s All the Hubbub About? The Storyline
Reborn as a Vending Machine
If you’re not familiar with the tale, allow us to spin the yarn for you. Our unnamed protagonist starts his life as an otaku with an unusual affinity for vending machines and the isekai genre. But fate has a twisted sense of humor; he meets his end crushed under a vending machine. What happens next? He is reborn as a vending machine in a dungeon, shattering his isekai dreams but granting him a ‘broken’ ability to dispense any item he had in his past life. Enter Lammis, a young girl with her own set of “ridiculously strong” powers, who discovers our protagonist, now named Boxxo, and embarks on a journey with him.
