What a life in another world really needs is a big, great adventure… Wait, no it doesn’t!
The definitive otherworldly comedy returns!

Kazuma Sato–a game-loving shut-in who was reincarnated in a different world due to an unforeseen accident–is determined to become a hero and live the life of an adventurer in an RPG-like world. However, he continues to live a humble existence in this other world, his dream of glory never quite coming true.
Aqua, a goddess who was thrown in as a bonus during his reincarnation process.
Megumin, an archwizard who can only cast one spell a day.
Darkness, a crusader whose attacks never connect.
Along with his party of three warriors–who, despite their great powers, fail to live up to their potential–Kazuma somehow keeps completing quests.
One day, however, a servant of the King came to Kazuma and his friends, who had saved the town from the Mobile Fortress Destroyer. His message?
“Adventurer Kazuma Sato. You are currently under suspicion of subversion of the state!”
…Which way is Kazuma’s life as an adventurer in another world going!?
