Natsume Akatsuki and Kurone Mishima’s original Konosuba light novel series follows the story of Kazuma, a shut-in student who dies in a traffic accident but meets the goddess Aqua after death. He is given a chance to reincarnate in a fantasy world and can bring one thing with him. When he chooses Aqua herself, they are both transported to their new lives. The pair embark on quests to earn enough money to buy food, shelter, and clothing, and eventually hire the sorceress Megumin and swordswoman Darkness, who are just as useless as they are.
