Light Novel Review: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! Volume 6

Who Would Like this Series/Volume?

It’s KonoSuba. Do you like KonoSuba? Then why don’t you read more KonoSuba? This volume is more KonoSuba. And it’s good.


KonoSuba, if you ask me, is average difficulty. Yes, it might have a few dozen words you might have to look up, but if your Japanese is average, you shouldn’t have any difficulties to understand the gist of it, even if you’re too lazy to grab a dictionary.

Difficulty 6/10


NOTE: There’s an official translation out there. Support it!

Rough Sketch

Volume 6 focuses on Kazuma and the gang being invited to have an audience with the Queen, Alice. She’s, like, 12. Anyway, Kazuma wants to be her Onii-chan, so he (sorta) tries real hard but, of course, mainly embarrasses himself. While Aqua and the others manage to gain some fame on the battlefield, he’s talked into a night heist by Chris to steal a dangerous Divine Artifact to seal it. Surprisingly, the heist is a success. Alice kinda recognizes Kazuma during the heist and sorta falls for him (?).


Volume 6 Cover

Oof. I really don’t know what to tell you. KonoSuba is such an insanely funny and interesting series, there’s really no downside to it. The only reason it doesn’t get full marks is because I need those for volume 7 (spoilers!). I was able to put volume 6 away, contrary to volume 7.

KonoSuba is mainly fantasy comedy with a side of harem. And that it does perfectly. No real downtimes, always gets to the interesting parts. Lots of variety. Lots of different characters. No cringe. No overused cliches.

The one thing that did nag me was that Kazuma always seemed to fail, which made turnouts predictable. However, this time he didn’t fail, he succeeds for once and is rewarded – although not in a public fashion since he does the heist wearing a mask.

I really don’t wanna spoil too much, just read it for yourself since there’s an official translation! I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Rating 9/10
