A person who wore her hood really low chanted the spell peacefully.

In contrast to her calm tone, the power of the spell was devastating.

The explosive sound shook the air, and came with a scorching blast.

The black giant beast which was chasing me was blown away without any resistance.

And that’s not all. My sacred playground was also compeletly destroyed by the powerful spell, blowing away the toys that I worked so hard to gather.

Overwhelming power that can sweep away anything.

The greatest destructive force that was greater than any other kind of spell.

This massive destruction was dealt by only a single mage. A single shot.

What kind of spell could that be?

Even the adults in the village never used something like that before.

The hooded person walked near to the mindblown and dazed me.

“Are you ok? Were you hurt anywhere?”

She bent down and peeked at my expression.

The robe she was wearing was really rustic, but when she bent down her plump breasts were displayed prominently.

Oh wow this is awesome. Well that spell was awesome too but this is way better!

“How am I able to become someone like you?”

This question just immediately popped out from my mouth. I even forgot to thank her first.

The words that my mom kept repeating recently floated in my mind.

“Our family has had thin bodies in basically every generation. You’d better give up earlier.” —— something like this.

I am not gonna give up, not gonna give up until the very end.

With such a mood like this, I clenched my fist, staring at her plump parts……

The hooded person looking at me and seems to have smiled.

“What’s your name little girl?”

“I’m Megumin.”


With a short silence. That big sister asked cringingly,

“……………Is that a nickname?”

“It’s my real name.”

The big sister silent again and tried to calm herself, and then she said,

“You want to become someome like me…? Hmm…….If you eat more, learn more, and

become an arch wizard; I am pretty sure….. ”

Become an arch wizard, then I can have huge breasts.

Become an arch wizard, then I can have huge breasts!

“Yes. If you become an arch wizard, one day you will be able to use that spell. But honestly I don’t really recommend that spell though.”

Seems like the person with the hood said something else, but I’ve already fallen into the dream of being an arch wizard.


The person with the hood patted my head while I kept mumbling “arch wizard, arch wizard”, and looked around.

“Hey little girl, did you see any other adults around here? There should be someone who removed the seal of the tomb……because the fragments of the seal are here, and it should not be automatically unsealed……”

The person with the hood twisted her head and picked up the fragment beside my feet.

“That man should still around here. Its a mystery as to who unleashed me……Well never mind, asking you is not gonna help me figure it out. ”

While she was talking, she came to the center of the giant hole that was created by the spell.

A black beast was lying over there and barely breathing.

She put her hand upon the black beast’s head.

“Please sleep a little bit longer, my other half. This world is still too peaceful for you to wake up…..”

The person with the hood mumbled like this, and her hand that seems like she was absorbing something from that beast and kept flashing.

Meanwile the beast became smaller and smaller.

Finally it shrank to the size of a cat, and its shape became a blur, and disappeared.

“Okay, after this……Oh? What are you doing right now little girl?”

I was picking up the toys that was scattered on the ground. Then she turned to me.

“I am picking up my toys. My family is very poor, these are all I have.”

“Ah? No, no. These are not toys. They are used for sealing the horrible, evil fiend. They’re very important….Hmm???? ”

I assembled those fragments that I picked up, but some of the fragments are missing.

Need three more pieces.

“Big sister your spell blew three pieces away, can we look for them together?”

“No, NoNoNo ! This is way too weird! How did you assemble those pieces that simply! This is absolutely odd! Even those adults, like oracles, were having a hard time on cracking them, how did this happen….. ”

The person with the hood kept stroking her jaw, seems to be really confused.

“When did you come and play on this sealed land little girl? Didn’t the adults inside the village told you not to go near here?”

“My mom said, if people told you ‘Its dangerious there’ ‘There’s nothing there’ or ‘Don’t get close to it’ about someplace, that always means there are treasures hidden over there.”


The person with the hood was frightened and panicked.

After that she stood beside me and put her hand on my head.

“Well, although there are still, many things that I don’t know what happened, but most likely I have to thank you. Do you have any wishes little girl? I might not look like it but I am actually a mysterious mage with great power. No matter what kind of wishes, I can make one of them come true.”


“Yes, Wish. Don’t feel hesitated, just bring it. No matter what kind of…… ”

“Conquer the world.”

“…….Sor, sorry, I can’t do that . What happened to her? This kid might able to become a great person……Errr, don’t you have any other wish?”

The edge of her hood was very low, but I still peeked that the corner of her mouth is twitching.

“Then turn me into a girl with huge boobs.”

“N,No, This is impossible either. How old are you right now? You should not be in the age to

worry about that yet.”

Looks like this is not gonna work either.


“Make me into the demon king.”

“Sor,sorry! I have to correct my words. Unlike such a talented little girl as you, I am just a simple mage with some power. Only able to achieve a simple wish.”

The person with the hood aplogized to me and a drop of sweat came across her face.

I looked at the fragment pieces on my hand.

“……..My toy is still missing three pieces. Could you find them for me?”

“Wait! No, I can still achieve a wish that’s a little larger….! And don’t treat it as a toy! That black guy right now was just sealed again! Don’t come to this place again, got it!? Don’t you have any other wish? Something a little bigger….. ”

The person with the hood seem embarrassed and looked at me cravenly.

…….Something a little bigger.

Well then——–

“Please teach me that spell.”
