The Lazy King

Genre: High Fantasy

Leigie and Lorna by Shibaki Tsubura

Daraku no Ou
By Tsukikage

By the time I realized it, I had reincarnated into another world.
I kept sleeping, and at some point I became a Demon Lord.
Even though I never wished for it.
But for me to not have to work, this world is the best. It must be true that good things happen to good people.
The flavor of Sloth is as sweet as honey. Glory, diligence, virtue, or honor. I have no interest in anything like that.
What’s there to hide? The Lazy king is… none other than me.

    Thank you for translating this. I’ve been reading light novels and fanfics left and right for a whole of twelve months now, and I think this is one of those stories that really leaves a mark that lasts. Kudos to the author and to you. I think that, with this story to end it, I’ll give myself a break from my reading. Thanks again and I hope to read more stories from you next time.

    Any chance you can tell us what’s up? I know there are three bonus chapters hidden away on the website there.

    You previously said that you’d translate the first of them, but that was over a year ago now. Does that mean you’ve lost interest completely or just that one chapter?

  9. Is this series fully translated? Is this series over?
    The end was sort of anticlimactic. But regardless of the end one of the best novels I have ever read.

    Question to anyone who has bought and read the original novel from amazon or elsewhere. Is there a volume 3 or is it in production?

    I can’t read Japanese, but has the author explained why he’s not writing a new volume yet? A hiatus doesn’t make sense at this point anymore.

      I did google translate everywhere I thought was relevant and can’t find any details. But that doesn’t really mean much considering how many places the author can be hiding information.

      I found the authors home page.

      He had a status of all his series at the bottom there. I can’t really do anything other than google translate, so if you have a clear translation of
      堕落の王:二部完了済み
      ⇛一応、まだ続ける気はあります。。。
      Based on google translate I think it says “I might write a chapter once in a while.”

        yeah, something like that
        “anyway/at least/for the time being, I still have the feeling to continue (the work)”

        In my opinion, it kind of feels like author’s wimp, lol. The status of the novel is already completed since 2015. The web novel even if it was in bad cliffhanger, all of the attributes (of demons, and even angel & heroes) already included in the chapter title. It was 2015.

        I kind of get the impression that the last chapter was rushed. Whether it was the intention of the author or not, the second volume is clearly closed by closing the Lazy King’s room door(with creaking voice), as if saying goodbye. Without explaining the conclusion of other characters battle. Maybe the author want to fix that.

        But he has been busy with other works. Even if he decided to make the continuation (since 一応 means it hasn’t been decided), we won’t be able to enjoy it any sooner.

          Just odd. I mean the guy hasn’t had much success with any of his other projects as far as I can tell. There are some minor successes, but nothing near the level of The Lazy King.
