This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the first arc in a new series I haven’t covered before. It’s Lazy Dungeon Master Arc 1 by Onikage Spanner!
Plot Synopsis: “Hey, hurry up and massacre those bandits!” “No way, I don’t want to work…” Spending my daily life in leisure, that was my pastime—until I was summoned into another world and met a blonde loli introducing herself as Dungeon Core No. 695. “Save my dungeon. By the way, if the dungeon core is destroyed, you’ll also go down with me as the dungeon master.”A dungeon with a single room. Moreover, one already controlled by bandits. This is a [Checkmate] no matter how you look at it. Guess there’s nothing to do but somehow get out of this situation so that I can [Not Work]!!
Plot: I don’t think I’ve ever read from a lazier protagonists’ point of view ever. I mean Keima is smart, but damn is he super lazy. The plot is excellent though.
Characters: I have to admit I like Keima, even if he’s a lazy punk. Rokuko is also pretty interesting, in an adorable airhead sort of way. The rest of the cast is pretty small in this first arc however.
Overall: This is a solid start to a pretty good series, if you can get over the fact that the main desire of the protagonist is to literally lay around in bed all day, every day.
