Warning: spoilers from the manga!
The new mission of the Kisaragi Corporation is to fortify their base on the planet and expand their territory. But to achieve this, they will have to increase their points. Worse still, their new hide place is destroyed by a massive explosion after Snow has a gunpowder accident and they all find themselves living in tents on the edge of the forest.
Snow, heavily in debt, is literally willing to do anything to keep a roof over her head, especially after being unable to pay her own rent due to the Flame Zapper MK loan. 2 and that she was deported. It turns out that Grimm is very close to Wiz, as she is undead. And when she is attacked by her fellow zombies, she makes the stupid mistake of removing the blessing of death from the area… including by itself.
To make matters worse, the tent-refuge of the Kisaragi Grace Branch Secret Society finds itself besieged by Mipyoko-pyoko. In short, instead of the giant toads of Konosuba, this story features hordes of self-destructive frogs exploding! Pushed to the limit, Six decides that it is time to call on the big artillery and summon one of the supreme leaders of Kisaragi in the other world: Lilith the Black.
