KONOSUBA author Natsume Akatsuki can’t be stopped! As if one hit series wasn’t enough, Akatsuki’s Combatants Will Be Dispatched! novel series was also recently announced for an anime adaptation, and a new visual is here to tease it some more.
Five volumes of the series have been released in Japan to date, selling over 200,000 copies so far. Yen Press has released two in English, with a third to follow on April 21, and here’s their official synopsis of the first:
Always being a gun to a sword fight!
With world domination nearly in their grasp, the Supreme Leaders of the Kisaragi Corporation–an underground criminal group turned evil megacorp–have decided to try their hands at interstellar conquest. A quick dice roll nominates their chief operative, Combat Agent Six, to be the one to explore an alien planet…and the first thing he does when he gets there is change the sacred incantation for a holy ritual to the most embarrassing thing he can think of. But evil deeds are business as usual for Kisaragi operatives, so if Six wants a promotion and a raise, he’ll have to work much harder than that! For starters, he’ll have to do something about the other group of villains on the planet, who are calling themselves the “Demon Lord’s Army” or whatever. After all, this world doesn’t need two evil organizations!
