The Dungeon Master That Absolutely Won’t Work Before Indulging in Laziness



“Hey, hurry up and massacre those bandits!”

“No way, I don’t want to work…”

Spending my daily life in leisure, that was my pastime—until I was summoned into another world and met a blonde loli introducing herself as Dungeon Core No. 695.

“Save my dungeon. By the way, if the dungeon core is destroyed, you’ll also go down with me as the dungeon master.”

A dungeon with a single room. Moreover, one already controlled by bandits. This is a [Checkmate] no matter how you look at it. Guess there’s nothing to do but somehow get out of this situation so that I can [Not Work]!!

127 thoughts on “Lazy Dungeon Master

  1. Well, it’s doesn’t seem R-18…but the LN (or it is WN? Don’t really care anyway => it’s a story) is pretty good and fun so~…….don’t know if i’m grateful, forgive you or something else…… I have little good feeling toward your choice?
    Yeah that it “little good feeling”. So i really want to read more.
    Before i enjoyed Dragon’s Bloodline & Happy Peach, and now it will be Dragon’s Bloodline & Lazy Dungeon Master (LDM?).

    1. It is a resting. R-18 (Restricted to 18+ years) It mean there may be sex or sexual activities.

    1. One chapter of LDM per week, more depending on donations.

      I also release a chapter of Dragon’s Bloodline each week as well as work on The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist (Light Novel)

    1. Also, there are quite a few on royalroadl such as ‘the slime dungeon’. Some are good, most are downright bad. It’s a bit of a gamble.

  2. Nooooooooooooo why is the loli dungeon core an oppai loli nooooooooooooooooooo I’m crying tears of blood

      1. Oh i see. I’m also planning to buy it and just wanted to say that i can share the illustrations if/when i get it.
        (oh and in case you don’t know, the preview is available on overlap along with 2 illustrations)

        1. If/when you get it, please send the images to me on here or through my email and I’ll definitely get them posted!

          1. Sure. Looks like they added it on Bookwalker so I’ll probably get it the day it’s out. I’ll be sure to send them when i get it~

            1. Awesome, I’ll insert the images into their respective chapters here in a bit (In the ToC too). Out of the house right now ^^

  3. Something I’ve been wondering ever since I saw the illustrations for the LN… Rokuko is supposed to be a loli right? Why is she normal height and so busty in the illustrations?

    1. Mentioned this a few times now so I should probably put a disclaimer somewhere… >.>

      Author changed how Rokuko looks in the Light Novel version, giving her both a loli and oppai form depending on how much DP they have stocked up.

      She is -only- loli in the Web Novel version.

      Hope that helps ^^

      1. Ahhh that makes sense now. Thanks for the really fast reply, and for all the hard work you put into translating all these awesome series.

        Now I have to figure out why WordPress decided to use my real name instead of my username…

      2. And now, almost a year later, Kehma mentions in the WN that Rokuko can change her form/age. As if it’s common sense.

        Author, you’re messing up-~-~-

  4. You know I really hope he makes something like a boss area with 5 Golems with different skills or abilities and when the hero manages to damage them enough they combine together to form a Golem with all the abilities of the other 5 Golems. That would be awesome. Not to mention a huge Game changer for the Adventurers.

    1. Yes, very much so. (If you scroll down just a little bit on the main blog, you can see the date on the most recent post. In this case, less than a week ago.)

    1. Hi lnwnepubs,

      My apologies for responding to you here, but I’ve been unable to leave a response on your web site. Anyway, If you’re interested, I’ve got a Web page to EPUB plugin for Chrome and Firefox that I’me working on. It currently supports a number of sites. Details can be found here. Send me an email ( if you’d like to discuss how it can be improved to help you.


  5. Hello Ziru,

    Firstly, I’d like to say thank you very much for your efforts, I am very much enjoying this story.

    Second, I’d like to point out a couple of very minor technical errors. In Chapter 74 both footnotes have the same ID of “fn-1”. This means the links in the text can’t jump to the footnotes because the browser doesn’t know which one to go to. In Chapter 44 both references have the same id of “r-1”, so the footnotes can’t jump back to the text.

    Finally, the following tools can be used to automatically generate an EPUB of this (or most of the other stories on your site.) For Chrome: For Firefox:
    To use:
    1. Go to one of the above sites and install.
    2. Browse to web page that has table of contents.
    3. Click on the “WebToEpub” button on toolbar.
    4. Fill in any details/change settings.
    5. Click the “Pack EPUB” button.
    6. Enjoy.

    In the interests of full disclosure, I’m the author of this plugin.

  6. Pingback: Wolf Tales
  7. It’s seems Rokuko has two form? I is chibi loli another is teenager kyunkyuu?
    that 1st not colour illustration show chibi form and some shown teenage form?

  8. hmm after many months after reading this WN i thought of a funny idea…
    expand the dungeon on the surface to the 2 nearby cities,…..

    why build when you can hijack, installing a few fake dungeon cores would also make it very easy to travel.

    also if ya want to make a boss golem…

    use a pond with alot of Algea 1 meters deep, then the boss only need 2 be like 30 cm’s tall to defeat most adversaries

  9. Excuse me,, why chapters 150 onwards is not available yet but have the titles? Just wondering,, anyway,, thanks for the translation 🙂

  10. Whose the elf girl from the V.3 illustrations? That the only scene in the illustrations I can’t remember.

  11. Chapter 170 – Rokuko’s Five Back-to-Back 10,000 DP Gacha
    Chapter 171 – 1000 DP Machine Gun Gacha (x150)

    Uwaa. What sort of absurd splurging is this? I’m looking forward to it.

  12. Thank you for translating this very great novel ^^

    I’m curious about Haku master, its a male or female :/ ( i hope its a female ~^-^~ ) IYKWIM 🙂

      1. Ohh~
        Thank you very much for the info~ ^^
        ( but, i’ll be patient until Ziru-sama translate the main story to chapter 205 ^^ )

  13. Feeling like a drug taker, that is looking at empty injector.

    I’m prety close to start reading in japanese via google translate. Please, have mercy – give one more chapter to the poor russian teenager 🙂

  14. Same here. Btw, can someone recommend any translations with a similar premise? ‘Dungeon Defense’ has been woefully lacking in that regard.

  15. Excuse me, I’ve just find this and taken interesting in the story but I saw that they said there are differences between the WN and LN about the heroine is loli or bb. So before start reading, please anyone spoild me a little about the story? Like Is this a harem comedy or a romance between a stupid main and a baka loli tsundere despite there still better girls around him ? Because some reasons I have a trauma about the second so please fell me that it the first!!!

      1. you mean “anything except stupid”. That means the first right? If so I will start reading now, and though it’s a bit early but thank you for your hard work translating this anyway!

  16. Ziru-sama!! Can you please translate “Yuusha Party no Kawaii Ko ga Ita no de, Kokuhaku Shite”? I like this novel but the translators dropped this novel :(( if you can, can you please translate these too?

    Thank you for translating lazy dungeon master I really like these novel because the MC is lazy 😀
