I just finished watching season 1&2 of Konosuba. I want to start reading the light novel.

From which volume should I start?

  • very often things got changed/cut for the anime adaptation so it may be worth reading from the start anyway. Oct 20, 2017 at 15:20

1 Answer 1


According to Japanese Wikipedia:

  • Volume 1 covers Season 1, Episode 1 (S1E1) - S1E6
  • Volume 2 covers S1E7 - S1E10 and S2E3
  • Volume 3 covers S2E1 - S2E5 except S2E3
  • Volume 4 covers S2E6 - S2E10

So, you might want to start from Volume 5.

However, take a moment to read Is the Konosuba anime a close adaptation of the light novel? to decide whether you want to read from the beginning instead.

  • Wiz was introduced in a flashback, so i might start from the beginning. Did they skipped any other important details in the anime?

  • @trim24 Sorry, I don't follow the series though. You might ask that as a new question though.
