The Konosuba light book series by Natsume Akatsuki and Kurone Mishima is about Kazuma, a shut-in student who dies in a traffic accident but meets the goddess Aqua after death. He is offered the opportunity to reincarnate in a fantasy world and is allowed to bring one item with him. When he chooses Aqua for himself, they are both transported to their new lives. They go on missions to earn just enough money to buy food, shelter, and clothing, and eventually, hire the sorceress Megumin and swordswoman Darkness, both of whom they rapidly discover is just as useless as they are.
The main novel series concluded in May 2020 with the 17th volume. Akatsuki also wrote spinoff novels, which were illustrated by Mishima.
