Original Name: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
Following an untimely and embarrassing demise, Kazuma Satō, a Japanese teenage shut-in, meets a goddess named Aqua, who offers to reincarnate him in a parallel world with MMORPG elements, where he can go on adventures and battle monsters. Despite being offered a godlike item or ability to use in this new world, Kazuma, following some provocation, chooses Aqua herself to accompany him to the town of Axel, quickly finding her below average intelligence to be less than beneficial. With Aqua unable to return to the afterlife until the Devil King is defeated, the two form a party and recruit two other members; an explosion-obsessed magician named Megumin and a masochistic crusader named Darkness. Due to the party’s dysfunctional abilities, Kazuma quickly gives up on the idea of defeating the Devil King and tries to live a luxurious lifestyle, only to find the circumstances of his daily life force him and his party to encounter and battle the Devil King’s generals.
The main protagonist. A sixteen-year-old Japanese teenager who became a game-obsessed shut-in after having his heart broken over his childhood friend during middle school. He is sent to the parallel reality after dying from acute stress reaction, forcing Aqua to come with him after she irritates him with her attitude. Kazuma is classed as an Adventurer which, despite being the lowest ranked class, allows him to learn various skills from other classes, albeit at an increased cost. With his ability, Kazuma learns basic skills such as stealing, archery, monster detection, and basic magic.
An arch wizard who is descended from crimson demons; powerful humanoids who possess black hair and red eyes, and sport chūnibyō characteristics. Megumin only knows a single spell, an incredibly powerful Explosion spell that immediately incapacitates her for the rest of the day when cast, and refuses to learn any other skills.
The goddess of water who judged humans to send to the RPG world, up until Kazuma dragged her along with him. She is an energetic and simpleminded girl who likes to receive reverence for her status and gets upset easily. As an Archpriest and a goddess, she is powerful against demons and the undead, and is able to resurrect recently deceased people as well as purify water supplies. Rather than learning skills which would benefit her party, she spends most of her skill points learning Party Tricks.

A crusader who possesses powerful offense and defense, but lacks the accuracy to deliver her attacks. She is a masochist who dreams of being ravaged by monsters or married to an abusive husband; regardless, she becomes serious with issues involving her friends.
