Yorimichi 2 (Short story collection) announced: Release date 1/11

A new tweet by Sneaker Bunko has announced a new collection of short stories slated to be released on the 1st of November. Just like the previous Yorimichi, this should be a similar collection of exclusive short stories, including several “phantom” short stories that were previously near impossible to obtain. Additionally, according to the information released on Kadokawa’s website, this volume will contain three additional original short stories.

However, one point to note is that while they are newly written short stories, they do not take place after Volume 17. According to a follow up tweet, they will take place in and around Volumes 4-5.

In any case, it seems like I will be busy for some time yet.

(Not April fools) Konosuba Volume 17 and Dust 7 Release date announced!

Yeah, I know the internet is overflowing with fake news on this day, but this is a legit announcement. In a new tweet released today, Kadokawa announced the release date of Konosuba Volume 17 and Dust 6 to be the first of May, 2020.

The tweet contents are as follows:

Konosuba Volume 17: Releasing on May 1st! This volume will be the conclusion to the story.

However… In the afterword, there will be some information about the “after story” that never made it into the web version!?

Also, this may be shrunk down, but this is the first reveal of Mishima Kurone-sensei’s new cover art!

(1st of May) Along with the final volume of Konosuba, the final volume of the spinoff series “A time in the limelight for this fool too!” will be released! 🎊

In Kazuma’s absence, the Demon King’s Army launches an attack on Axel!? Dust will make full use of all the cunning that he has cultivated as a delinquent adventurer and all the relationship that he has built up(?) as he readies to confront this final battle.

Please bear witness to the final battle of Dust, the man who was loved by dragons above all else!

Konosuba Detour: Short story collection and Dust Spinoff Volume 6 Release date announced


Konosuba: Yorimichi (Literally Konosuba: Detour) is a collection of eight brand new short stories written by Akatsuki Natsume. The book will be released on the 1st of January alongside a new audio drama (Divine punishment upon this Cheating Goddess).

This work will probably be on my release schedule after Dust 5 is done with, so stay tuned.

Alongside that, the next volume in the Dust spinoff: A knight’s vow to you, written by Hirukuma, will be releasing on the same day. This book picks up where Dust 5 left off, which I can’t get into detail now, but if the cover is anything to go by it should shape up to be an interesting volume.


Volume 16 and Dust 5 Release Date Confirmed: 1st of August (Also TL’d story blurbs)

Release date for the next Volume of Konosuba and Dust 5 have been confirmed. Stay tuned for story blurbs

A Time in the Limelight for this fool too! 5: Covenant with the White Dragon


A Mysterious girl with links to Dust’s past has appeared!? The fifth entry to the popular Konosuba spinoff series

“I’ve found you, Line, Shaika…”

Dust managed to lose all his money in the blink of an eye… Just then, a mysterious young girl appeared in front of an exhausted Dust. Even though he would normally not show mercy even to children, in order to provide for the young girl, Dust properly accepts the guild quests, and asks Luna to please nurse her and other such activities. His gallant(?) form makes one think that the girl must be his illegitimate child!

While Kazuma and co were out taking down another Demon King’s General, rumours of a white dragon being sighted spread around Axel, throwing the town into a panic. Despite trying to make a clean break with his past, the identity of the noble Dragon Knight that spent such a long time in the town of beginners, Axel, is made clear–

To keep his promise with his partner, and for the sake of the adventurers in Axel, the Delinquent adventurer rises up
