In Japan, Lazy Dungeon Master is published by Overlap Bunko as Zettai ni Hatarakitakunai Dungeon Master ga Damin wo Musaboru Made, and started off as a web novel on the Syosetsu ni Narou website. There are currently seven volumes out in Japan. The ebook for volume 1 is planned to release in English on August 5th.
Synopsis: “Come on, kill all those bandits for me already!” “No thanks. I don’t wanna do any work.” My name is Keima Masuda, and my hobby is spending each day doing exactly nothing… but one fateful night, I was summoned to another world where I met a blonde young girl who I named Rokuko. It seemed that fortune had favored me and I would soon be living a wonderful life free of work. But even though I’m a guy who loves sleeping more than eating, Rokuko demanded that I help her. “Save my dungeon! By the way, since you’re the Dungeon Master, you’ll die too if the Dungeon Core is destroyed.” The dungeon only had one room, and it was already surrounded by bandits. Seriously? It’s a checkmate already. I’ve gotta break out of this impossible situation so I can stop working and just sleep!
In Japan, An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Slave Elf Bride is published by HJ Bunko as Maou no Ore ga Dorei Elf wo Yome ni Shitanda ga, Dou Medereba Ii?, and has five volumes released so far. The author Fuminori Teshima has written several other light novel series. The ebook for volume 1 is planned to release in English in early August.
Synopsis: Zagan is feared by the masses as an evil sorcerer. Both socially awkward and foulmouthed, he spends his days studying sorcery while beating down any trespassers within his domain. One day he’s invited to a dark auction, and what he finds there is an elven slave girl of peerless beauty, Nephy. Having fallen in love at first sight, Zagan uses up his entire fortune to purchase her, but being a poor conversationalist, he has no idea how to properly interact with her. Thus, the awkward cohabitation of a sorcerer who has no idea how to convey his love and his slave who yearns for her master but has no idea how to appeal to him begins.
