Gifting this Wonderful World with Blessings! – Volume 12, Prologue

Next Konosuba release will be the manga’s chapter 4, which is going through the final checkups now.

Also, for those wondering where the table of contents is, the typesetting on it is up-to-down this time around, which works for Japanese, but doesn’t work for English. I would have to redesign it which will take a while, so I’ll leave it till later, which will most likely be sometime near the end of this volume.

As per usual, if you have trouble reading the images, you can find the full resolution images by right clicking the image and removing the “?w=###” from the tag. I’ll also add a link after the images for those on mobile.

Anyway, enjoy~

At the center of the adventurer’s guild, a young girl who looked like Darkness innocently smiled.

“She really does look like Lalatina-chan! Hey little girl, could you tell me who your dad is!?”

A female adventurer who was drawn in by the girl’s smile leaned on Darkness with a beer mug in hand.

“Agh, it’s none of your business you drunks! Oi Kazuma, hurry up and do something about these people!”

Darkness, whose face was flushed red with either alcohol or embarrassment, turned to me for help…

“She’s mine!”

“If you don’t want me to beat you to death then shut it!”

Darkness quickly grabbed ahold of me as I raised a thumb at the inquiring female adventurer.

Witnessing the scene unfold, the young girl began to giggle.

The rowdy-looking people who surrounded her smiled, entranced to the point where I was worried they would be arrested by the police later.

“Hey Kazuma, isn’t it about time we decide this time’s V.I.P.!?”

“Don’t you mean M.V.P.? Either way, isn’t it obvious that it would be me!?”

After I rebutted Aqua, who seemed to be in a good mood, Megumin raised her voice, a triumphant expression on her face.

“Oh? Am I, who showed the secret arts of the Crimson Magic Clan, not the clear MVP?”

“Didn’t you just mix a few materials or something? Not to mention, the guild’s bartender is probably better at you at that anyway.”

Megumin sullenly puffed her cheeks at my reply.

“Oi oi, if you’ve got a problem with it then why don’t we ask the witness? We can have her decide who did the most this time. Well, not like we all don’t already know what her answer is. It’s obviously none other than me!” I said, pointing at myself.

Then, I turned to the girl held in Darkness’s arms and who was the reason for the festivities in the guild.

“So, who do you think is number one?”

Hearing my question, the girl looked up at Darkness from within her embrace—

  1. hum…have you a timeline for translating that tome? I found myself checking your site everyday since last month:o
    I am addictif that seems


  2. Man, i loved this, and with those images i can’t wait to read it. I am so thankful that you are dedicating your time on this, and i kind of wish that there were a quick translation version, but i understand that beign careful make most of the jokes still work. Thank you for everyting.
    Hope some jap make a Adrkness revraep dojin.


  3. is it inappropriate to ask for some illustration translations for some of the earlier LN? some of it weren’t translated and got me wondering for the meaning(tried learning jap but still cant figured it out, the kanji got me). like for book 9 etc… just some food for though


  4. Megumin huh she’s a clumsy and childish little girl , when she try to get along with Kazuma in a way more than like friends ….every time is a fail and i don’t expect nothing from her , she just play with kazuma because She’s a coward .

    I hope the author end the story with a harem , what happened with Iris ? Will Kazuma came back to earth ? then what with the girls?
    I like more Darkness she is most direct but when is about love she is shy.
    I thinking so seriously but is not a dramatic story after all Lol .

    I hope Kazuma got a harem and his pet Aqua


  5. well Kazuma isn’t a great partner for her …. true
    I feel bad for our Lalatina but since this LN is comedy i think something will happen later .

    I remember when she was almost marry with that fat ass , so i can’t
    take it seriously

  7. Nice work as always, yuns-san. Thanks for your work at translating this for us.

    I managed to avoid the partial translations of urano-sama made of chapteR(1 and 3 i guess?) but i’m really dying here to read after this image of megumin asking kazuma if he wants to becomr more than friends(say yes, for the love of god, i need to see my ship sailing!)

    Anyhow, cheers yuns-sama, take care.


    1. What the crap are you on about? Who would want to ship Kazuma with a pea-brained goddess who (SPOILER!!!) bought a normal chicken egg thinking it was a dragons egg for like 10000?!?!


  8. Welp, I had the vol. 12 raw LN but i haven’t finish reading it (the kanjis made me sleepy every time i read it). I’ve only finished like 1/3 of the volume. Sigh.
    Anyway thanks for TL’ing this LN, which make it more understandable since i read the raws by skipping most of the descriptions (which is mostly in kanji that I don’t know).
    Once again, thanks for this!
    c  c.ミ


  9. What beating Kazuma to death, first you would need to actually be able to land just a single attack, you damned lewd Eroness!
    Really, these girls keep ignoring their shortcomings for comedic purposes…


  10. Lol made new WordPress just to comment 😀 (and maybe post some of my simple game scripts :D) Thank you YUNS SOO MUCH FOR BRINGING KONOSUBA TO ME :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D


  11. as ever お疲れ様でした, i was planning on buying this one a time ago but my debts seems endless `T,T` so when it comes to my hands it would be after YUNS team has ended the translate, however i’m waiting for the continuation in Yuns’ smooth style

    1. well, YUNS is indeed make us FREE to read…. but if you have chance is not hurt to buy the book dude….. just do it as token of appreciation and support to the writer of konosuba.


  12. If i remember correctly Megumin stated about Koibito-miman on that colored illustration
    koibito-miman: couple who are more than friends, but not in an intimate relationship


      1. Nope, this is the american equivalent of “going steady”. She’s saying she wants a serious relationship but is not yet ready for a sexual one. Honestly putting up limits beforehand is good idea with Kazama.

  13. Something I noticed:
    “Not to mention, the guild’s bartender is probably better at you at that anyway.”
    Shouldn’t it be “the guild’s bartender is probably better THAN you at that anyway” ?
    That aside, thanks a lot for the translation!
