(Fanfic) Consulting with this Masked Devil! Volume 1 Epilogue

final

Translator: yuNS

“––Like this, the store owner that was reborn as a Lich. After that, the demon king requested that she – as compensation for her rampage through the castle – become one of the demon king generals that maintain the barrier. Though her companions were freed from the premonition of death, she was no longer human, and thus she retired from being an adventurer. She decided to open a store in the town where she first met her companions. Having told them that if they were tired, they could come around to play anytime, she awaits their arrival in this store. Rumor has it that one of her former companions died in a fierce battle against a large bounty target, but even so, this this spirited store owner continues to wait for their arrival.”

“V-Vanir-san…”

“Since then, the militant store owner has become completely jaded. As of present, she gives the impression of extreme meekness. Sometimes Moi wonder where the one that said ‘I have come to fulfill our promise!’ is. Ah, where has that disciplined, forward-facing and powerful magician disappeared to…!”

“Vanir-san, Vanir-san…”

With a troubled expression, Wiz tugged on Moi sleeves.

“What is it? Moi was wondering whether to tell the tale of how Moi managed to taste interesting and strange negative emotions from the demon king’s subordinates, or the tale of how much the demon king cried after the thieving store owner took as she pleased from the treasury, only to open a store in the castle…”

“T-That’s not it, um, Aqua-sama has…”

Moi looked at where Wiz was pointing, and saw the goddess sleeping comfortably on the tabletop. Ignorant to the situation around her, the goddess drooled as she slept.

“…If she is in this defenseless state, then Moi should use Moi sure-kill death ray to send her to her grave.”

“That’s wrong you know!? Since she seems to be sleeping so comfortably, let just leave her be alright?”

Wiz, who, as usual, was soft towards the goddess, smiled wryly at Moi.

Then, Wiz pleasantly smiled at the soundly sleeping goddess and continued to happily sip her tea.

Moi suppose that just for today, Moi would leave this goddess be.

After all, today was a very special day for this store owner.

At the very least, this day should be passed peacefully.

“Vanir-san, you seem to be in a good mood. How should I say this… you’re only in a good mood when you’re plotting something… So what is it? What are you planning to do today?”

To categorize Moi as a troublemaker such as thyself is disrespectful. Moi merely used Moi power to see the future, and foresaw that a little event will occur today.

Yes, Moi enjoyed seeing a human’s surprised expression.

“A little event? As in, the customers will finally come to understand the value of our merchandise, or that the store will become prosperous…?”    

“That would be called a huge incident, not a small event.”

Moi glanced sideways at comfortably sleep goddess on the table, and turned Moi attention toward the door of the store.

Through Moi actions, Wiz seems to have also noticed that a customer was coming.

As the door opened, Wiz’s expression changed from surprise, to nostalgia, to a warm, gentle smile.

The customers that entered the store carried a child. They were two familiar, former adventurers––

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the volume!!!

  • Dark Bullet

    I think this is the last translation, guys.

    • yuNS

      Not yet~~~ Volume 9 comes out tomorrow!

  • JuliusCV

    I wonder if in the future there will be a side story with Wiz adventurer days or we only will have this much. Anyway, the image with Wiz and the girl is heartwarming.

    Thanks for the chapter! keep the amazing work!

  • Ciglossonjr

    I really hope this isnt the last translation, especially after being teased for volume 9

  • Irina Akashira

    Thanks for the update

    And just a suggestion

    If have been just licensed the main story, it isn’t exist any reason to dropped the side stories if apper more volumes in the future

  • Kemm

    I wonder which pair is it, the guys we’ve seen or the guys we’ve not seen. But I was sure that the man of the guys we’ve seen liked Wiz…

    • Relaxing Tomato

      The pair seems to be Yukinori & Karen.

      I thought it was Brad & Rosary at first, but the image here http://imgur.com/lzVhhgs shows the child’s name as Atogaki, a Japanese name

      That also suggests Yukinori is either a Crimson Demon guy or another reincarnated guy sent by Aqua.

      AQUA IS REPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING AGAIN

      • Maidniac

        na, it should be Brad and Rosary’ kid.

        there’s no way the child is called atogaki ;< , the image is for the atogaki…, and for what I understood, it seems that Yukinori died, I starting to think that the cheaters have 2 options, die on the side or becoming the next demon king

      • yuNS

        Atogaki = afterword XD; tbh I thought the girl looked a bit like young Megumin, and it’s implied that Wiz was the one that showed her explosion magic.

        • Relaxing Tomato

          Nah Lord Wolbach taught Megumin explosion

      • Kemm

        Atogaki is not the child’s name. It means “afterword”, since that’s the afterword page.

        If you just forget the romaji on top, starting to transcript the japanese text on the lower half leaves us with:
        “Atogaki

        Mazu ha kono sakuhin wo te ni totteitadaki arigatou gozaimasu.”

        which means:

        “Afterword

        First of all, thank you very much for picking up this work.”

        • Relaxing Tomato

          Just fuck my shit up

    • yuNS

      When I was tl-ing this line I was wondering why they used the term “familiar”, then I remembered that the pair of Karen/Yukinori exists as well. The term “familiar” is used from Vanir’s point of view, so the pair is Brad/Rosary.

  • Blahtoto

    Wait….. How many years has it been since Wiz becomes a Lich?? Maybe it’s her companions descendants?

    • Relaxing Tomato

      Nah, can’t be more than 20 years

    • Pablo Jiang

      maybe 5. it can’t be that many

  • Víctor Andrés Hernández Patiño

    The idea of a volume to Vanir didn’t attract me at first but now I love it. Character development for Yunyun, Luna, Iris, and that beautiful story of Wiz, 10/10 for me.

  • Victor ~victorloko~

    Oh god , this ending … please, we need more wiz ‘-‘ that image in the end really broke my heart, amazing!! I really need more of This, specially the last scene reunion… should be funny but at the some time a heart breaking … really amazing 🙂 🙂

  • Kanata Yuuki
  • sapilaut

    Yep, this novel cemented Wiz as my favorite character of this series. Such a lovely undead.

    • Pedro Stock

      yep, darkness was my favorite so far, but after this chapter I love wiz forever and beyond, favorite character ever <3

  • yuNS

    A short teaser for everyone~
    https://crimsonmagic.me/2016/07/01/fanfic-konosuba-volume-9-teaser/
    Site is still a WIP, but it’s where I’ll be posting after volume 9.

    • Arienai~

      so Megumin for the win for sure now?
      her precense are only got stronger and stronger for each volume pass, while the goddess[lol] got the more feeling of side,joke character-ish for the late volume.
      as for Darkness, well… service character-ish?

      ———
      anyone know the official english name of Darkness? because in my country version of license they pronounce her name as “Duckness” which made me confused.

      • sapilaut

        Considering the way her name is written in katakana, I can see how one would translate it as duckness. But in this novel we see Vanir’s darkness curse get the victim relating it to being a masochist. So we can assume Darkness is the correct name.

        On the topic of the newest novel, is the scanned vol 9 available anywhere? Can’t wait to read it.

    • Kotomeme Gary

      Whoa… Thanks, I thought reading past volume 9 was a lost cause and this really made my day(and hopes up), my gratitude to you yuNS

  • DiPz

    Damn… im happy for wiz that she was able to meet her old companion……

    And vanir….. what you are really a good guy huh.. hahaha thanks for the chapter ;’)

  • Rei

    Thanks for the hard work. And i have some questions for translator and sky-team. I’m sure many also want to ask this.
    Is there any chance to continue fanfic-ing vol 10 onward.? I’ve heard Volume 9 are better from any previous volume (mainly her confession). Knowing this, i don’t think i can wait for years to read “official translation” of volume 10+.
    Can we do “fanfic” just like SAO translator.? I’m sure those who want to buy physical copy will buy it no matter what. I will buy it too when i’ve got jobs in near future. And those who want to know the continuation can read it without waiting for years.
    Could you guys consider this, sky-team.

    Sincerely yours. A fan of konosuba and fan of your group translation

    • titanium

      Tell me what happened with megumin a kazuma do they start a relationship?

      • sleepy duck

        Megumin said something like this in the next volume, “I love you, who always complains about every little thing, but chooses
        to help everyone in the end, who are not straightforward, but truly kind
        at heart.” So, I think she went straight on confessing.

  • Rem

    Thanks for the amazing chapters, as always. Keep up the good work!

  • yuki

    Thanks for the translation as always!

    That said, yeesh. What a terrible fanfic. Theres absolutely no consistency to the story (Yunyun outright disappears halfway through the volume), the characters contradict the main fanfic story if I remember correctly (didn’t Kazuma say he was interested in Wiz’s story too? Why wasn’t he there in the last chapter/epilogue?) and the entire chapter about Iris is the epitome of filler content (you could literally remove that entire chapter and it wouldn’t affect the story at all)

  • 『 』

    thanks for the chapter

  • Hendras

    This is my first time my heart warmed by the ending for reading konosuba.

  • toling54

    what a nice ending 🙂 thank you very much

  • Tokimiya Rita

    It’s just my opinion but, is the “cross” in Wiz’s chest is the same as the one on rosary’s hair??
    My theory is that Rosary gave it to Wiz after she’s cursed when they fought Beldia. Just wanna hear what you guys thought about it
