Epilogue 1: ––For the sake of this person––

I messed up.

I parted in such a way with the person I had been looking for all my life, and in an emotional moment, I did something I shouldn’t have done.

How should I face him starting tomorrow?

He said that he loves me as well, so does that make us lovers?

Should I change the way in which I treat him?

“*Fuhaah~~*– Good morning!”

The culprit of my troubles appeared with a yawn. With a sleepy expression, he lazily walked to where we were.

Kazuma, who had begun packing his luggage before fixing his bedhead, said:

“Yunyun, let’s go back with ‘Teleport’.”

…Going to back to Axel from the fortress would have only taken a fleeting moment, but since we had come all the way here during our journey, we decided to go to a hot spring on our way back to relax.

“I don’t really mind doing that, but why did you suddenly bring that up?”

When Yunyun asked, he showed some suspicious behavior.

“T-There’s nothing really, I just really miss Axel you know~~”

Immediately after Kazuma, who said such insincere things–

“Yeah, I want to hurry up and get back to Axel for my heartfelt reunion with Emperor Zell! Let’s go home quickly and have a celebration party! We beat that evil-god after all!”

Aqua announced her plans without a hint of any ulterior motive. All she wanted to do was to celebrate with everyone.

“You’re right, we should be proud of our efforts this time. Until now, we fought against the demon king army generals because we were forced to, but this time around we had fought them on our own accord, and managed to defeat them as well.”

Said Darkness, as she stuck out her chest in a prideful fashion.

But–

“To be honest though, you didn’t really do anything.”

“Eh?”

Darkness – who had her moment of pride stolen by Kazuma – became a bit teary eyed.

“Hey, Yunyun, do you want to stay with us? There’s no need to force yourself to stay with us…”

“Eh!? Ah, y-, you mean me? Uhm, erm… if you would let me join you, I would happily…!”

Just as everyone seemed to have agreed to celebrate tonight, and were happily discussing their plans, Kazuma said:

“Ah, by the way, I’m not coming back tonight.”

It’s not like he was Aqua, so why did he say such ignorant things?

“You’re not coming back? Then where are you planning to go!? I mean, when you go out with your friends, what exactly are you guys doing?”

“Hm!? T-T-T-T-That’s is well, shouldn’t you understand? It’s just things that friends do together, you know…”

The sharp intuition of the Crimson Magic clan is telling he was going out on some funny business.

“So you’re just doing things with friends? Then tell them to come celebrate with us. It’s a rare occasion for us to gather, so the more the merrier right?”

“Eh-!?”

Kazuma’s expression looked as if he was witnessing the end of the world. Once again, I reaffirmed the greatness of my intuition.

Even though I didn’t know what he planned to do, he obviously wasn’t up to anything good.

I walked up next to Kazuma, whose shoulders were drooped, and patted him on the back.

“Well well, why don’t we have a drink with Kazuma tonight to celebrate his achievements?”

“Hey you, do you even know why I’m staying out tonight?”

Said Kazuma begrudgingly. Even so, I didn’t know what he meant.

“How would I know? By the way, where are you going?”

“The café, you know, that ‘café’? The one that operates 24/7?”

A café that operates 24/7?

There was only one café in the town of Axel that matched that description.

“…You, after what happened last night, you decided to do this kind of dirty business?”

“Hmm? What wrong Megumin? Your eyes are really red… What are you so excited about? Was it something that happened last night?”

This guy–!

…No, calm down for a bit, even though we said that we love each other, we never said that we were a couple.

Which means I had no reason to be angry.

“…That store has a lot of sexily dressed onee-sans. Hmm? Are they Kazuma’s type?”

“Huh, so you know about that store? And the type I like huh… I wonder what it is…?”

His reply was full of indecision.

“…While we’re talking about this, could I ask what type of girl Kazuma likes?”

“My type? Hm, I haven’t really considered that before… If I really have to say it though, it would be a ‘long haired, big boob’ed girl that would dote on me a lot’?”

Hearing him reply with such ease, I felt the need to reconsider my love for this man.

After what happened yesterday, shouldn’t his preference be a lot closer to me?

“Hey, what is it? I heard that if you sigh so much your luck stat would decrease you know?”

He wasn’t popular because he was always like this. Oh well—

It would be fine if I was the only person to love this strange person.

“Everyone, the preparations for ‘Teleport’ are done.”

Everyone gathered their belongings together—

“Alright, I’ll use the bounty reward to live outside for a week! Though I don’t really know how large the reward is.”

I had no idea why he wanted to stay outside for a week, but as usual, he was probably up to no good.

As I pondered about this—

“‘Teleport’–!”

–I decided that I would grow my hair longer.

Epilogue 2: ––Dear, Onii-sama––

–About one week after we returned to Axel

I was about put the plate down to feed Chomusuke, but I was interrupted by Megumin as she entered the room.

“…Kazuma, are you feeding it a bit too much? You shouldn’t dote on it so much you know?”

“But this guy hasn’t stopped eating—Here here, eat more and grow up quickly~”

Before you become that onee-san, I hope we can get along well.

Also, please forgive Megumin for using explosion magic on you.

“…There’s a letter for Kazuma. I don’t really know what’s it about though.”

A letter for me?

“Is it that dragon egg salesman again? Ever since I bought Emperor Zell, he’s been sending these mails every day.”

The idiot who got tricked lured a lot of scammers to this house.

“If it was sent to Kazuma then it probably isn’t anything good. Let me take a look.”

“Here it is… I can’t help but feel like I’ve seen this envelope somewhere…”

Megumin passed the envelope to Darkness…

Darkness opened the envelope and peeked inside. Without a moment’s delay, she shoved it in her chest pocket.

“…Oi, what are you trying to do with a letter addressed to me?”

“…It is as Aqua said, it’s just a letter from the dragon salesman.”

“It’s just as I divined! Isn’t this great Kazuma? The mails sent to me all address me as ‘This letter is addressed to the one destined to a dragon, an adventurer of great fame and might.’”

Ignoring Aqua who was saying stupid things again, I said to Darkness, who tried to avoid my gaze:

“Oi, give me the let—.”

“I refuse.”

Darkness replied in an instant, and proceeded to roll herself into a ball, as if she was pregnant woman protecting her child.

Seeing her action, I could tell who the sender of the letter was.

Because I’ve seen Darkness do this before.

“It’s Iris right!? Iris sent me that letter right!?”

“How did you guess!? No, I mean, this is just a—!”

I mercilessly stretched my hand towards Darkness’ chest as she desperately tried to refute my claims.

“AAhhhhhhhh!?”

“Look! As I thought, this is a letter sent to me by Iris!”

Darkness put her hands by her chest and bent down.

Hmpf, don’t think that I wouldn’t lay a hand on the letter if you put it by your chest.

After all, I am no longer the wuss that I was. I have been reincarnated as a ruthless man.

As I was thoroughly experiencing the thrill of my victory, I opened the letter.

Undoing the royal seal, I unfolded the letter—

‘Dear Onii-sama,

I have heard of your great achievements at the fortress nearby. You always seem to have dive headfirst into danger, so I have been a bit worried of your wellbeing…’

Just reading the header of the letter has warmed my heart.

‘This time, I have a request for Onii-sama, who has become one of the nation’s greatest adventurers.’

Then I read the last sentence.

“Actually, I am going to meet with the prince of a neighboring country with whom I have an arranged marriage with, so I would like to hire onii-sama as my bodyguard—”

And viciously ripped the letter.

Author’s Afterword:

Megumin has been very Megumin in this volume, but I’ve decided that she should feel the stench of this love quite soon.

I didn’t really intend to do so forcefully, but there is a limit to my skills as an innocent and inexperienced writer.

I will continue to try out new writing elements, and try to improve every day. One day, I will write something that will make everyone laugh out loud.

In the volume, I have been helped by Mishima Kurone-sensei, S-san, and all the people related to the publishing process. Everyone has helped the book see a peaceful and successful release.

Finally, I would sincerely thank you for buying this book! (TL Note: Heh, you guys better go buy it!)

Artist’s Afterword:

Thank you everyone for purchasing the ninth volume! (TL Note: Heh…again)

This volume has been Megumin’s turn to shine on the grand stage…! I’m actually really jealous of Kazuma!

Thanks to everyone’s support, a second season of the anime has been green-lit, and Megumin’s Bakuen (explosion) spin-off is getting manga!

When I think that the Konosuba series will continue on like this, my heart aches a little!

–Mishima Kurone

Short story published in GAMERS

An Occasional Cliche Story

That day.

After coming to this world, I finally encountered an anime like event.

“Hyaaa!?”

Darkness’ naked body was before me.

Yes, this is the so called ‘lucky pervert incident’.

“Hey, why didn’t you lock the door. Let me be clear first, I am not in the wrong at all. After all, there is no need to knock before entering the bathroom in the day.”

After waking up early in the morning, I headed to the bathroom to wash off the sweat, and ran into Darkness who was taking her clothes off.

Well, we lived in this house for more than a year, so such things do happen.

Seeing how calm I was, Darkness was dumbfounded momentarily.

“Y-Y-You turn your head away! And don’t try to play it off so easily, I already told everyone that the lock to the bathroom is broken! And even if this is an accident, men have to apologize for seeing the skin of a maiden!”

“Don’t think your warped logic will work on me! All you feminist are the same, always pushing for gender equality, but will ask the men to give way when things don’t go your way! If I accomplish enough merits to earn a peerage, I will abolish this trash system. Starting from this house.”

“I get it, I really do! There’s too many things to retort, so turn your head back first!”

Darkness finally give in to my flawless argument, and answered with a crying face.

After being judged to be innocent, I averted my face in relief.

“We already bathed together once, why are you still so shy? And you have already taken care of me a lot in that certain shop.”

“You are still going on about that!… And what is that shop?”

“That shop is just that shop. A shop that will be fine even if the young lady doesn’t know about it. By the way, are you done? I just woke up with a body of sweat, so I want to have a quick bath.”

Darkness was hit badly by these words.

“Y-You really have no reaction after seeing me naked. To think that you are still concerned with your sweat at a time like this.”

“I won’t be shakened by your naked body anymore. If you understand, then get dressed and leave.”

Darkness complained about my answer as she dressed.

—— After washing myself in the bathroom, I cast freeze onto my warm body in the living room. Darkness glared at me with slanted eyes.

“… What, you want freeze magic too?”

“No! I am just mad that you don’t even care after seeing me in the nude! You saw the bare body of a woman, don’t you find your attitude right now terrible?”

“You are really troublesome… It’s partly my fault for not remembering about the lock being broken yesterday or the day before. But I really hope you can tell me if you want me to be interested or not interested in your naked body.”

“… Well, the ideal situation would be for you to be very interested, but I don’t want you to see.”

What a troublesome woman.

“If it was Aqua, she will forget after I buy a bottle of expensive wine for her. Megumin would probably not mind at all.”

“That’s because they are abnormal! If you feel any guilt at all, I don’t mind forgiving you if you apologize. I don’t need you to buy wine for me like Aqua, just do something to appease me.”

Darkness made a roundabout speech just like a noble.

“Do something to appease you. Abuse you verbally or kick you in public? I am a normal guy without such fetishes and can’t do such Play with you…”

“Idiot, I don’t need such nonsensical things at a time like this! There are many things you can do. Like giving me something I like, or accompany me to a restaurant with great atmosphere.”

Gifts and to accompany her…

“If it is something you like, there isn’t any pet shop so no collars. As for restaurants… I only frequent the barbecue shop though.”

“… At a time like this, I hope you can put my fetish aside and give me something normal. As for restaurants, those frequented by commoners feel rather fresh, but it would be better if it caters for advanced booking or memberships.”

This girl was troublesome in many ways.

Her fetish and her personality were both troublesome.

“Go and prepare gifts for me as apology! If you see the skin of a maiden, you will have to pay the appropriate price…!”

Darkness was all smiles and was probably getting cocky as I appeared to be deep in thought.

Her smug face when she held the advantage was annoying too.

… I couldn’t be bothered to think anymore.

“I get it, I will let you see my naked body and call it a draw. Then it’s all good.”

“How is that good!? Who want to see that… Hey, don’t take your pants off, stop! I-I get it, forget about this! S-Stop… Hyaaahh!”

It had been a while since I heard Darkness squealed like a girl.

 

Digital Edition Special Story:

A Certain Chick’s Special Move

“Hey Kazuma, listen to this, Emperor Zell finally learned a trick.”

Aqua said as she held Emperor inside her palms.

After having a slightly late lunch, everyone entered idle mode.

Sitting across from Darkness, I stared at the chessboard on the table——

“I admit that you are a first rate performer, but it’s impossible for a chick to learn a trick. We are betting the dishwashing chore for next week, don’t disturb us.”

“Heehee, I have always been losing but I have a big advantage today! And you have already used the once a day explosion rule in your match against Megumin! I will win, there’s no way I can lose!”

I ignored Darkness whose eyes were sparkling with excitement and focused back on the board.

A short distance away, Megumin – who had needlessly exhausted her mana today, and had also spent all her brain power in her match with me – laid weakly on the couch.

Damn it, if I knew, I wouldn’t have used my full power against Megumin.

“Aqua, Kazuma and Darkness seemed busy, how about letting me be your audience.”

“Is he really? Well then Megumin, I’ll allow you to be the one to witness Emperor Zell’s magnificent performance.”

I felt relieved that the annoying girl is gone, and concentrated on the board once again, thinking about how to turn around my losing game.

“How about it Kazuma, it’s about time you surrender right? After I told my father about my consecutive losses, my father, who is known as the treasured sword of the Kingdom, taught me this sure win tactic.”

“For a grand noble, your dad is too childish. He dotes on his daughter too much.”

Ughh, what to do. Should I hide the thief over here…

“W-What is this!? I was thinking that a mere chick won’t be able to do much…!”

“Hmmp, you get it right? After all, it is not a chick, but a dragon. This is just a simple matter.”

……

“Hey Aqua, what did that thing do? Show me.”

Although this was a crucial moment in the contest, Megumin’s exclamation intrigued me.

“You just said you don’t want to see, so why are asking again? Emperor Zell’s performance had ended for the day. The next show would be next month.”

“Ah, hey that’s too much, just show it to me for a while, I am very bothered.”

Or rather, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate if I don’t take a look.

“Hey Kazuma, just concede if you want to see Emperor Zell’s performance. I saw it too, it was amazing. It probably surpasses Aqua’s usual performance.”

“… That amazing?”

What should I do? Solely in terms of party tricks, I had to admit that Aqua was good.

No, or rather, she had no other good points except for her healing spells and party tricks.

“Aqua, please do it again! I have never seen something so amazing.”

“No Megumin, that’s a performance from Emperor Zell’s soul it did in order to repay my careful daily tutelage. It’s not something that could be performed so simply.”

Aqua and Megumin ignored me who didn’t see it at all and got all excited.

“I couldn’t help being impressed after seeing that performance. Kazuma, are you willing to be the only one not to have seen it?”

Darkness taunted me as I was caught in a dilemma.

“You’ll regret it if you don’t see it. Emperor Zell’s lifespan might shorten if it performs that too many times. It is sleeping now because it exhausted all of its energy from doing that right?”

“Right? If Emperor Zell doesn’t want to, then I can’t do anything about it… Ahh!? Emperor Zell woke up! Are you fine!? You are doing it!? You want to perform again!?”

“Ah! Emperor Zell just…! Kazuma, Darkness! Emperor Zell is all prepared!”

What does ‘prepared’ mean, I was very bothered.

And Aqua said if I miss this chance, the next one would be next month.

“Hey, hey Aqua! Don’t mess around and come here, I want to see. Darkness, let’s take a time out.”

“No. It’s your loss if you leave the seat. How can you leave before the match is decided? Come, choose! You want the party trick or to battle!”

Uwaahhhh.

“Alright, get ready Megumin! Watch carefully and witness Emperor Zell’s special performance!”

“If I can see it again, the lofty me might fall for Emperor Zell!”

Ahh, damn it!

“I get it, I concede! Hey Aqua, wait, I want to see too!”

The moment I concede to Darkness, Aqua and Megumin high fived.

……?

“Then watch Emperor Zell’s special performance carefully.”

Darkness who was wearing a proud face started putting away the chess pieces. This gave me an ominous feeling.

“Look closely at Emperor Zell’s special trick!”

Aqua held Emperor Zell gently in her hands with a dumb smile, then cupped her hands together…

After a while, Emperor Zell snuggled into a ball, closed it’s eyes and slept.

“This child will sleep when I do this. Early to bed and early to rise makes a chick healthy wealthy and wise, right?”

Early to eat and early to shit makes it wealthy?

Or rather, covering a chick with your hands to make it sleep is not a performance, but the nature of chicks.
<TL: youtube.com/watch?v=dSfDBUYh2lc>

… Hey, hold it.

Megumin had suddenly challenged me earlier today, and Aqua  had enticed me to look at Emperor Zell’s mediocre performance. Was it all Darkness’…

“Here, Aqua, Megumin. This is the agreed payment. But father is really despicable… To use circumstances outside the chess board to force the opponent to concede…”

“Hey, wait a minute ahhhhhh!”

Translator’s Afterword:

Sky: Thanks for reading

yuNS: Eh? Is that it? Anyway, it been a short 5 months since I first started translating, and since then, my skills and comprehension have grown a lot (try reading the consulting spin-offs’ earlier chapters). When I first started I didn’t even know how to format a proper blog post (lol), but thanks to Sky’s advice I managed to learn all the essentials. Well, once again, thanks for reading this translation, and remember to support the source material! If you don’t know how to you can leave a comment below and I’ll try to help you out!

    Thank you!

  • merlix

    i know on this site it’s practically heresy to proclaim anyone but Megumin as best girl but I really have to say that Iris has been my favorite since vol 6. a blonde “innocent” charming little girl beats the loudmouthed chuuni any day for me. the fact that the two quarrel makes her all that much sweeter. so hurry up and arrive already volume 10!!!!!!

    IRIS HYPE!!!!!

    Iris best girl!

    • Tiago Rodrigues

      Myself, I think the order, from best to worst, is Eris-sama > Iris > Wolbach > Yunyun > Wiz > Sena > Darkness > Megumin > Komekko > Sylvia > Aqua.

      • Lightningdestroyer

        There’s something about Eris that always makes me been wary about her, Eris-sama is too perfect in this world filled with disappointment and let down situations, so far, every recurrent girl know until this point have a quirk or something in the personality that is a turn off.

        Aqua earlier said that Eris is even more ruthless than her about demons and undead creatures and the way that Kazuma always change the topic when is about that and how adamant is in not let Vanir or Wiz met her (She doesn’t know that kazuma can use the skill Drain touch) is very suggestive that Eris-sama have a dark side or something like that.

        But even so Eris-sama is very nice.

        Village Idiot, could you please store them, so that you could still share the goodness for new arrivals? (I already have them, just thinking about the new guys that will see your comment and see nothing)

        • Village Idiot

          If anyone wishes to host/share them, its up to them.

          I won’t do so anymore since I don’t want to play DMCA wack-a-mole that’ll start happening as it gets closer to official release.

    • Village Idiot

      Each volume has been updated with a proper credits page.

      If you’re planning on sharing the files in the future, please use the updated ones.

    Oh I will… in the three or so years it takes for Yen Press to actually translate the goddamn thing.

    Thank you guys for all of your hard work! Now it’s a waiting game. At least I got SOME closure on the Megumin route.

    • merlix

      I actually looked up their headquarters once, it’s a very ominous looking skyscraper in new york so it fits with their “let’s buy the rights to translate LN’s and then take forever and with shittier quality than fan-transations” attitude.

      Burn in hell yen press! can’t do what is expected then don’t bother trying!

      So Will you translate that?

    • Vainety

      Will it follow the same schedule(Every wednesday)?

    • Ilídio Magalhães

      Japanese version right? Since it’s free it may be a bit in the grey area of ‘rights but if you can, please do translate it.

    • Eduardo Leusin

      Thank you yuNS, can’t wait to read the next volume translated by you in your new website :3

      • Ilídio Magalhães

        Me too! It’s a shame that Sky and co. can’t do official releases for the new volumes and release them as digital previews. The probably non-existent legal model, the poor business case and the bad PR from working with a fan-crew to do your job should make this suggestion impossible. One can dream, though. I heard a rumour that several people working on the fast and apparently great (I didn’t personally made the comparison) SAO translations were doing it for free before being hired to go pro. Sky, yuNS, Nigel and the others are certainly good enough to go pro and they are fans of the series they work on which is always great.

        • Chaos

          Where Is gonna be the new website? I really really want to read the Vol 10 of this. so actually, where? q.q

    So does anyone know why they can’t continue? Sometimes if you just translate the latest volume and remove the previous from the blog, they won’t DMCA you.
    Edit; Nevermind, yuNS has the answer.

  • Ilídio Magalhães

    Thanks for the journey. It has been fun. I’m looking forward your next projects yet again!

  • Moe_Ronn

    Much thanks.

  • madafaka

    are you really not planning on translating the rest of this wonderful novel? it will leave a bad taste in our mouths if this one goes unfinished…

    • Deus Ex Machina

      yes but look someone will do another fanfiction.

  • Patty legend

    I think the bodyguard job is a trap to trick Kazuma into marring Iris.

    I will Miss the weakling updates in this masterpice.

    • Ilídio Magalhães

      Iris probably wants something similar to what Kazuma did to Darkness, ie, stopping the marriage.

      • B-Dom

        Most likely, though many of us won’t know till Yen Press releases the next volume.

        • Ilídio Magalhães

          Maybe not. There’s should be spoilers from Japanese speaking fans and maybe something more as well. It’s not the case but I found a blog the other day where the owner claims he/she will do as he/she pleases. So far it only picked MKnR, I think. Still, two years is not much. I’ve been waiting for more for the next Evangelion movie to be released!

    • TamaSaga

      Doesn’t Kazuma possess a certain princess’ ring?

    • Lightningdestroyer

      Kazuma will butt in, do something amazing and will save the day in the end.

    • RaiZero

      I think that this is Iris strategy to foil her engagement with the prince

      • Deus Ex Machina

        I support this theory. Well Megumin’s greatest rival IS Iris and not Darkness

  • midniss

    Why is sky imgur post getting downvoted?
    And account from 2012 only 70 total upvote?

  • pizzapicante27

    How do I support it, WITHOUT also supporting YenPress?

    • Ilídio Magalhães

      Buy the Japanese releases and other merchandise on Amazon.jap and other websites that sell the local market-only (and highly expensive) stuff.

      • pizzapicante27

        In yens, right? Ill try if I have the money then.

        • yuNS

          You can use visa/mastercard and a bunch of other international labels on amazon Japan. Amazon will ask you for a Japanese address when you buy the e-book, but you can google some random Japanese address and it’ll work just fine. I personally use Rakuten Kobo Books to get my e-books, though it sometimes delays its releases by one-month after amazon (which was the case with this volume). Kobo doesn’t require a Japan address to purchase and has its own e-reader, and it isn’t hard to find what you’re looking for.

          For reference, the Amazon e-book releases are usually 1-2 days after their paperback release.

    Iris finally reappears in the front stage but there wont anymore translations (T.T). Many Thks to Sky and his team for all the work they hv done. Once YenPress releases the 1st volume this site will have lost its meaning. Also i keeping my fingers crossed that the official translator for this series is some1 who knows the series

  • Lightningdestroyer

    Seriously guys, to all the ppl who has worked on, my deepest gratitude for translating this, since years ago i didn’t get so hyped about something until i got a liking to this series.
    In the beginning with the anime, i thought this was the Harem cliche of the season, oh boy, how glad i was very wrong that time, when i was seeing the tenth chapter and knew that was the end i feel that was not all of it, for some twist of the destiny i got to know that this was a LN in a fb page so i searched and got to know this fanfiction, seriously i spend like 18 continous hours reading all the published content at that time haha, since then i’ve visited this every week to see if something was up..

    Enserio muchas gracias!

    • Daegon SNK

      Yo tambien me emocione muchisimo con esta novela ligera siendo la primera que leo, me gusto demasiado.
      Ahora estamos jodidos ya que no podremos saber que pasara con iris en el siguiente volumen u.u

  • IchsanWin32

    Thank you sky-sama and yuNs-sama as the translator of this series…

    Waiting a new fanfic from Sky-sama… An overlord Fanfic maybe? ;p

  • Turtle

    Since this is the last one. I must ask, when will yen press release their translation of the light novel?

    • HyperiorV

      I predict in about 3 years since they do it seasonally ish

      • Rei

        If they still interested by this series, that is. YP now turned into greedy b that gobble a lot of title but not even improving it’s translation quality and time. With that many title, i’m 100% sure that some title will be abandoned

    • Ensiklo Media

      This isn’t the last one, the fanfic translation will continue soon on https://crimsonmagic.me/ by Yuns himself.

  • Kemm

    A heartless place to stop is this. I hope I ever get to know how this story continues.

    • Deus Ex Machina

      hey, didn’t you see the new fanfiction site?

      • Kemm

        Not before posting this. And once I saw it I wasn’t sure if they were just going to continue with one of the fanfics or all of them.

  • Omar

    Really?! You will continue the translation!?!?! I LOVE YOU!!!!! Thanks a lot TT.TT I’m really crying T.T

  • StaZs

    Thank you so much YUns i dont know how should i support you but keep up a good work

  • Maccheese

    So. Im only on volume 4 right now. But i came here looking for a possible pdf of volume nine? I absolutely love this series and hate to see Yen press sodomize it. Once all translations stop, im gonna sift through this wonderful fanfic and the original translations (so many errors) to see which is the best translation with minor errors. Then im gonna be spreading those pdfs like wildfire. Big ol’ middle finger to DMCA.

  • Nightbringer

    I would like to thanks you from the bottom of my heart for all the translations!

  • Rider Memory

    Thank you very much for all of your hardwork. i’m really grateful for it
    Wish you guys best luck!

  • One-Eyed Potato

    Thank you for continuing the “fanfics”! On another note, will the ring that Kazuma stole from Iris finally have use next volume?

  • yuki

    Thank you for your writing!

    That said, this is written a lot better than your Masked Devil fan fiction. Much tighter writing.

  • Rem

    Thank you for all the chapters, Sky!! 🙂

    The fanfiction will be continued in the other website, so Chapter 10 and so on will be translated there? Or it is just a continuation of Gifting this world with wonderful explosions! (Megumin and Yunyun Story)? Sorry for all the questions. Just making sure if it is the original series or spin-off.

  • Howard Ong

    It would have been better if iris was like: I was forced to married another prince from a neighbouring country so… Please come and save me by trashing the party!
    P.S. I know you have my ring😘

  • namae

    Etoo.. so MC already did darkness via the shop. I wonder what kind of taken care of that meant. Lol.

  • puppy0cam

    “id like to hire you as a body gu-” *rips letter going nope, nope, nope*

  • Decaf

    W-w-what’s this! Could this be?! The actual tea of romance!!! Even Mid Boss couldn’t have seen this coming!? Oh well… too bad the tea’s kinda bitter… and cold… but it’s somehow still tasty? Like in an explosive way?!?!?!?!?! … Blech… what a bad aftertaste… please try again Bleck!

  • Puro

    Iris noooo don’t marry a random guy!

  • Kao

    Megumin’s sudden confession felt a bit forced by the author (although he/she admits that) plus it’s good to finally get a bit of progression in the story so I’m not sure how I feel :/ Is it just me?
    Also I would personally like a harem type situation
