    From the author of KONOSUBA comes a new light novel series! It’s tough being on the front lines for an evil organization, and nobody knows this better than No. 6, a Combatant for the Kisaragi Secret Society. Dispatched to a distant alien world on a reconnaissance mission, he’s got a new android partner, but how are you supposed to plan an interstellar invasion–of a fantasy world?!
