“EXPLOSION——!!!!”

That day.

I was walking home from Megumin’s daily explosion and came across the Axel vendor street.

“Come one, come all! Boy, do we have a treat for you guys today! High level ingredients! Fresh fruits and vegetables! You can’t find them anywhere else!”

The grocery stand owner was doing some kind of raffle event and yelling at the top of his lungs.

The produce in this world can be very hard to deal with.

They fly; they body slam you from the air; they squirt juice in your eyes. Things that should not be possible for things that grow in soil.

But, even the most troublesome ones are still at the mercy of nature, and right now it’s freezing outside. Some will fly away in search of warmth like birds, while others will hide and hibernate through the winter.

Because of this, they’re very expensive at this time of the year, and only nobles can afford the ones grown in greenhouses.

“Kazuma. What’s the matter? Did you want to pick up something for dinner tonight?”

“Nah, I have to carry you home, don’t I? Besides, the three of you are having a girls’ night out with Chris and Yunyun, right? Then I’ll just go out for dinner after I drop you off.”

As I was just about to leave the vendor street –

“Our prizes today are fresh produce rich in experience points! Pumpkins, watermelons, and matsutake! You heard right! The top prize is the incredibly rare matsutake!”

Megumin the Dragon Slayer

Volume 1 short story.

At a quarry close to town.

“Right, Ojou-chan, I’ll leave it in your hands.”

“Heh, leave it to me. Feast your eyes, for I shall demonstrate a glimpse of my true power right here! Were I serious, this entire quarry…! Ah, could you stand a little bit further back? Yeah, there’ll do.”

The chief civil engineer and Megumin were discussing how to proceed with their blast.

However…

“Why do I have to accompany you?”

“I don’t have a choice. I won’t be able to move after using my magic, so I’ll need you to carry me home.”

The Devil and the Forbidden Book

Vol 7 Toranora Special short story

TL: Cannongerbil

Editing: Ulti


This happened when I stayed outside until it was late and was making my way back home.

“… What’s going on?”

Even though it’s this late, for some reason, there’s a whole bunch of people lined up next to an alley.

And there were several familiar faces in the line.

My sense of curiosity getting the better of me, I walked up to them and asked,

“Excuse me, what’s this line for?”

“F-Frequent customer. What are you doing here at such a time?”

Within the queue are the onee-sans who often entertain me at the store.

“A-A human! Why would a human appear at this time?”

“Oh no, we’ve been discovered! Will today’s sale be canceled?”

The people in the line started raising a fuss upon seeing me.

“N-No, it’s fine. This man is a frequent customer at our store. He already knows that we are succubi.” Continue reading “The Devil and the Forbidden Book”

Dear Onee-chan (Bakuen 3 Gamers short story)

Dear Onee-chan

TL: Cannongerbil

Editing: Ulti


I finally found someone I knew after wandering around the village for quite some time.

That girl who’s sitting on the bench next to the store selling roasted sweet potatoes and writing about something is Onee-chan’s friend. Her name is…

“Amure! I’ve found Amure!”

“It’s Arue. My name isn’t Amure, it’s Arue. What’s the matter, Komekko? You seem quite worked up. Do you need me for something?”

Seeing me, Amure squatted down and brought her face down to my level.

“I haven’t eaten anything for three days.”

“Weren’t you eating heartily after conning Bukkoroli yesterday…? Oh fine, how about I treat you to a roasted sweet potato?”

I nodded enthusiastically, and Amure grinned in response and ordered a roasted sweet potato for me.

As I bit into my snack, I remembered what I originally came here for.

“Amure, this! Can you read it for me!?”

“M-my name is Arue… A letter? Oh, it’s a letter from Megumin. Let me see…”

Komekko’s Sugar Daddy [Bakuen 1 Short story]

Komekko’s Sugar Daddy

TL: Cannongerbil

Editing: Ulti


Just what is happening?

“Onii-chan, I want to eat frost lizard steak next!”

“Leave it to me! Onii-chan is really strong! It doesn’t matter if you want a frost lizard or a salamander, it’ll be a cinch to me!”

On the way back from school, I came across Bukkoroli trying to bribe Komekko with food. This is probably something I should be reporting to the adults of the village…

Though, this NEET is a rare lifeline to Komekko who’s still growing up, so I could turn a blind eye to this…

“I’m going to become Onii-chan’s wife when I grow up!”

“You damned NEET, how dare you seduce my sister!”

“Wai-st-stop, Megumin! Why are you hitting me all of a sudden?!”

This happened back when I was exploring Axel with Yunyun.

“Hey, aren’t those two Crimson Demons?”

“W-Wait, are you serious? Crimson Demons, you mean that clan of super powerful mages that even the Demon King’s Army is afraid of, right?”

We could hear such whispers coming from behind us as we walked past a certain street.

I maintained a calm appearance, and glanced at Yunyun beside me.

She seemed to be acting as usual, but I could see the edges of her mouth constantly twitching upwards.

I’m probably in the same state right now.

Behind us, the two men continued their whispered conversation.

“Speaking of Crimson Demons, every single one of them is an extremely skilled mage, and have mana far beyond those of regular mages.”

Underneath that hood of hers, the big breasted onee-san seemed to twitch.

“Wha…What did you say?”

“I said, please teach me that spell.”

I repeated myself to that onee-san.

The onee-san made a face more troubled than when I said I wished to conquer the world.

More troubled than when I asked for a way to grow my chest.

And even more so than when I asked her to make me into the Demon King.
