    By Natsume Akatsuki, Masahito Watari

    Kazuma Sato is a video game-loving shut-in-or at least he was, until a humiliating traffic accident brings his young life to an untimely end. But after his death, a beautiful girl claiming to be a goddess invites him to enter another world and gain some respectable perks in the process. But Kazuma's choice is going to have serious consequences for the goddess and the dead man alike...

    By Natsume Akatsuki, Masahito Watari

    After being transported to another world, Kazuma is joined by his allies Aqua the goddess, Megumin the magician, and Darkness the crusader. As they conduct more missions to fulfill quests, like purifying a lake while fending off monstrous alligators, they also progress as adventurers, receiving rewards from successful outings and skilling up. But one fateful day, one of the Demon King's terrifying dullahan generals approaches their sleepy beginner city. And somehow, Megumin gets his attention straight away, or should we say, earns his wrath... What are they going to do?!

    Game loving shut-in Kazuma Sato's life as a young schoolboy in Japan abruptly comes to an early end...or at least it was supposed to. When he opens his eyes, though, he sees a beautiful goddess that offers him a once in an after-lifetime chance to be reborn in a parallel world. The catch is that the world is violent and threatened by a growing evil! Fortunately, he can choose any one thing to bring with him. So he chooses the goddess, Aqua! And so his adventure with his gorgeous companion begins--if he could just get enough money and food to survive, keep his goddess out of trouble, and avoid grabbing the attention of the Demon King's army!

    By Natsume Akatsuki, Kurone Mishima

    Kazuma's first winter in another world isn't going so well. With companions like Aqua (Arch-priest), Megumin (Arch-wizard), and Darkness (Crusader), his party of advanced classes should be the most powerful in Axel--but they're so dysfunctional, even the easiest-seeming quest goes terribly awry, and they can barely save enough to afford a stable! When an opportunity arises to stay in a mansion, it's like a dream come true--the only catch is that they have to exorcise the evil spirits haunting it. Goddess Aqua is an expert with the undead, so the quest should be a piece of cake, right...? Unfortunately, with this useless goddess, things have a way of working out for the worst...

    After successfully saving the town from Mobile Fortress Destroyer, Kazuma is ready to sit back and enjoy the hero treatment: fame, fortune, and...criminal charges?! Now in hot water with the law, he has to find a way to clear his name with the help of Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness before the judge can sentence him to death. Darkness has a plan to buy more time, but will it be enough...? After all, in this wonderful world, who knows what'll happen?

    When adventurers are stressed and tired, there's only one place to go-hot springs! Kazuma and crew head to a town well known for their amazing open air baths and atmospheric surroundings. The only problem is that it's also famous as home to the Axis Church. Aqua couldn't be more delighted to visit all her "cute" followers but the others have heard more than enough stories to be afraid...
