Chapter 18 Omake: Preference
「Andou-kun, do you have a type of heroine you like in light novels?」
「Hmm, the type of heroines that I like, huh? That’s right…」
Here it comessssssssssssssssssss! I did it! Like this, I’ll be able to pry information from Andou-kun on what『type of girl』he prefers!
As long as I pretend that the question’s on light novels, then Andou-kun wouldn’t know that I’ve got a crush on him. This is a maneuver to listen to his『preference』without so much as alerting his wariness！
Pooh~~ As expected of me! To think that I could come up with such a completely flawless leading question, ah how brilliant I am!
Fufu, I truly am ingenious～♪ (Asakura)
「Hmm, well. Lately, it’s got to be『Megu●n』, I think?」*
「You can’t really mean that『chuunibyouuuuuuuuuuu』!?」
What’s with that!? Is Andou-kun telling me in other words that he wants me to become a chuunibyou character!? I, the『prettiest girl in school』to abruptly job change into a chuunibyou character?! Isn’t that way overboard!? (Asakura)
「Wait, wait. Hold on, that’s not what I meant. Just because she’s a『chuunibyou』character doesn’t mean that’s the reason why I like『Megu●n』. I just genuinely like『Megu●n』as a character from『Ano Subarashii Sekai ni Revenge wo!』!
You read light novels, don’t you, Asakura-san? Nowadays, there are『●●』with characters that don’t stand out, only this character in this novel is different! She’s that sort of existence!」
「W, Well …True, there isn’t any like her」
T, True… I wondered why all the boys, the protagonists with unattractive characteristics of a『loner』in those light novels are into those popular heroine types but of late, I kind of get why they do――!? (Asakura)
「T-T-T, That aside! You said that was lately but … then, what about the light novel heroines that you liked a few years ago?」
Just as I suspected. I thought that by listening to the type of heroines that Andou-kun was into, I could use it as reference but to really go forth and act as a『chuunibyou』is too high of a hurdle for me … So, I have to use a different character as reference ―― (Asakura)
「Hmm, let’s see… it’s got to be『Watashi no Imouto ga Konna Kawaii hazu ga na Darou 』’s『●neko』」
「Isn’t that still a『chuunibyou』characterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!」
【That very night】
「M, My name is … Asakura Eleonore Scarlet!
By the deep crimson dreams of the cherry blossoms, I will vanquish you from the heavens… fuuu」
It…………Ít’s so mortifyingggggggggggggggggggggggggg! (Asakura)
The question that Asakura-san asked me today,『What type of heroines do you like?』…… Now that I think about it, moreso than『chuunibyous』, the type of light novel heroines I’m attracted to are usually those solid heroines that have things under control, that constantly pick a fight with the main character and is completely useless when it comes to the matters of the heart sort of 『disappointing heroine』……
Ah well! What effs anyway since it’s not like Asakura-san particularly wants to know about『these things』(Andou)
In case you haven’t guessed it yet, the anime of discussion was KonoSuba: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KonoSuba and OreImo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oreimo
By the way, though Andou-kun likes Megumin, I still think the best waifu is Aqua.
Oh! And Asakura-san’s quote at the end? Guess where that’s from?
Oh boy! None of you saw this coming, did ya? Well, all of you can thank Scipo0419 as he/she became my first Patreon yesterday.

Au revoir~ Till next time!
Thanks for the chapter
Aqua is a good waifu… but Darkness and Wiz have the strongest plot armor…
Thanks for the chapter XD
Wiz is easily the best waifu of Konosuba. Aqua is a leech and Megumin is a kid (though she’s the perfect younger sister character for Kazuma)
…and Darkness got left in the dark~
Neglect play is strong in this one~
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the chapter~
Thanks 4 the chapter!
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Laugh it is.
what 『Ano Subarashii Sekai ni Revenge wo!』 & 『Watashi no Imouto ga Konna Kawaii hazu ga na Darou 』 mean in English?
Hey thanghe, the actual translation isn’t necessary to the context of the story. They’re just parodies of the two anime titles that I’d link in my notes.
But if you must:
『Ano Subarashii Sekai ni Revenge wo!』 – I’ll take revenge on that wonderful world!
『Watashi no Imouto ga Konna Kawaii hazu ga na Darou 』- My sister can’t possibly be this cute!
Nice taste Andou, but Ay*se is better than *neko. Yandere FTW!
Ayase is best girl
