    Evil God Average

    written by Kitaseno Yunaki(北瀬野ゆなき)

    When she stands, she’s like a white peony. When she sits, she’s like a
    tree peony. When she walks, she’s like a lily flower. And when you look
    her in the eyes, she’s like the Great King of Terror.

    Despite having the qualities to be a peerless bishoujo, because of the
    look of her eyes and that atmosphere of hers, she’s feared by others;
    such a girl is forcefully sent to another world.

    Being told that she would be granted a wish as a special favour, the girl made a wish────

    “Make my eyes and atmosphere normal please.”

    This is a story recounting the lifestyle in a parallel world of a
    girl who would be perfect (probably) if just her one weakpoint was
    overcome.

    A fantasy comedy with magic, dungeons, and a hero and demon king(candidate) who she gets tangled up with.

    She’s cursed though.

    been indifferent to me lately. Just as I was thinking about why this
    would be, I recovered fragments of my life’s memories before my previous
    life, that had helped me in the previous life as well. This is a
    romance story from my previous world, and I’ve been reincarnated as the
    noble girl villainess in the story.

    What Came to Mind During My Third Time in Another World was to For Now, Get Naked

    Synopsis:

    After being tossed into another world, Ononogi Kazuto splendidly
    defeated the Demon King as the Hero. However, there was no sign of being
    able to return to his old world at all. The moment that he touched a
    gem that appeared at the Demon King’s throne, Kazuto was sent back to
    the first town, 《Azerleims》.

    From here began the tale of this second time(NG+). He saved the
    imperial princess that he was unable to save in the second time, had a
    wedding with her, and after defeating the Demon King, met his happy end.
    Or at least that’s how it should have been. The True Demon King has
    suddenly appeared.

    Although it was a tough battle together with his companions, Kazuto
    eventually defeated it. And from the mouth of the True Demon King
    appeared a gem. Although he had a bad feeling about it, Kaztuo reached
    his hand out towards it, and when he did, Kazuto was sent once again to
    the starting town, 《Azerleims》.

    As you’d expect, by now Kazuto wasn’t really surprised, but the
    figure reflected in the mirror was female. Bewilderment. But at that
    point, Kazuto took one action.

    “…Mn. For now, let’s get naked.”

    Tilea’s Worries

    Synopsis:

    With the progression of his Chuuni Disease,
    Shioda Tetsuya is shunned by his family, and dies in despair, a thirty
    three year old jobless virgin. He vowed that if he was born again, this
    time he would stay away from delusions and live life seriously.
    Fortunately, he reincarnated in another world as a girl named Tilea, and
    lived a happy life with her kind parents and adorable little sister,
    but…

    Lately, she’d been troubled. Her beloved sister had begun talking
    about how she was actually one of the Six Demon Generals, serving
    directly under Demon King Zorg, a descendant of the Three Great Demons.
    The situation was looking bad. She had to do something before this
    Chuuni Disease got any worse!

    This is a fantasy “misunderstanding story” about a protagonist who
    has not noticed in the slightest that she’s a “cheat”-like existence,
    and how in her efforts to heal her sister’s Chuuni Disease (except that
    she really is one of the Six Demon Generals), she somehow or other ended
    up setting out to defeat the Demon King.

    The Lazy King

    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.

    Warning: You might actually feel sleepy after reading this excellent novel. The writing take you over.
