Natsume Akatsuki is the author of Konosuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!
Kurone Mishima is the artist behind The Devil Is a Part-Timer! High School!--the high school manga spin-off of the hit light novel series The Devil is a Part-Timer!
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...
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?!
With his subversion of the state charge cleared up, Kazuma and Aqua are living a life of laziness thanks to their hard-earned reward money. Not content to idle away their days, Darkness and Megumin come up with a plan to revitalize the two slackers by taking them on a vacation to Alcanretia, known for its water, hot springs, and...the Axis Cult's headquarters!?
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!
For the first time since being summoned to another world, Kazuma faces his very first winter. Genuinely living in a stable during winter is too miserable to bear. Securing a better quality of life is now the top priority. Soon, he's visited by a chance he never even thought to ask for when he comes upon a request to exorcise some evil spirits haunting a mansion. While she's normally a no-good goddess, Aqua actually seems to be an expert on exorcism so Kazuma replies immediately that he will take on this quest and rare opportunity but what's actually in store for them at this creepy estate...?!
It's been nearly a year since Kazuma and his useless goddess began their life in another world. After saving the town of Axel from the Mobile Fortress Destroyer, Kazuma is arrested for teleporting a time bomb to the house of a lord. Thanks to Aqua's unhelpful testimony, Kazuma is sentenced to die...again!
