Lazy Dungeon Master


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

“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]!!

Okey this story starts out pretty dark and gritty.

It is a nice story at first that splits itself between slice of life, comedy and some battles. As time passes it pretty much completly loses the battle part and switches more and more into slice of life in another world with a hint of comedy.

Some parts are very funny though to be honest the translator has chosen to not include some of the comedy chapters in the story and they are instead left as side chapters to read outside... more>> to not hurt the immersion. This lowerd the comedy part further and enhaces the slice of life part.

It is the standard JP harem trope where the MC just keeps collecting more and more girls who are all in love and willing to sleep with the MC but the MC is to "lazy" to do it (but in fact it's strongly hinted at him wanting to but being to much of a chicken)

Some annoying parts, some spoilers.


As usual loli's are involved in fact the first two heroines and who are also the main heroines and love interests are less then 10 years old in appearence but he's not a lolicon yeah! (most used line in JP novels nowadays introduce lot's of loli's but the MC keeps saying he's not a lolicon... maybe it's just the authors)

One of them is called meat and is a s*x slave bought by a bandit chief who is raped everyday for a week or two in the dungeon while the MC and loli watches and doesn't do anything. So you'd think the author doesn't shy away from s*x or at least physical relationships.

Nothing happens after this part except that Meat is used as a hug pillow by the MC when he goes to sleep and thats it. While I don't require it but with the mature tag and it's beginning I really thought this one would take a more mature approach to the harem members relationship with the MC.

I mean here the author introduces an 8 (?) year old broken s*x slave that is shown to being constantly raped and has no will to live. In comes MC gives some hamburgers, pats her head and two days later she's back to a normal 8 year old girl who's madly in love with MC for no reason. Sure you could argue that he helped her and such but it happens way to fast, wouldn't a beastkin girl normaly at least be traumatised of male humans after being captured and kept as a s*x slave?

To give him courage he is eventually raped by a girl (in his dreams? a bit unclear) which in turn makes him really start to accept his feelings for the first loli (also hinted at they might have had s*x or done naughty things while he wasn't himself) but he instantly gives a shallow excuse to not make the relationship progress. Not sure why more and more JP MC's has to be raped by the girl to progress in their relationship.


Some other points that I am all to familiar with right now is the simple fact that black hair is the mark of hero and no one except the hero or their decendents have black hair blah blah and even when lots of different food is offered the japanese cuisine is always the best wether it's the MC or someone from the other world who eats it.

All in all this is a slice of life in another world where the MC is a lolicon (though hides it behind his foot fetish) with some very funny parts and some not so fun and the MC builds his doll house with out there being any relationship except for the occsasional fan service.


Where loli will make out with big boob nee-san or loli will suck on nee-san finger and then nee-san licks finger or loli steeps on the MC to give him a massage or loli..... you get the picture

This is comedy at the finest.

The characters are absurd.
Typical tsundere loli, dense MC, perfect older sister.

The plot are absurd.
Stupid enemies, stupid schemes, stupid developments.

... more>> MC nature is inconsistent
MC suddenly questioning morale, MC suddenly hyperactive, MC suddenly sleep

Everything is out of place
Mixing comedy and dark theme. Mixing morale and lolicon theme. It's chaos.

Loli as body pillow? Absurd

The result? Absurd
You will find yourself often chuckles, maybe burst out laugh, sometimes raise your brows. It is beautifully written so you can laugh at the absurdity, nothing else. It is written for a sole reason of comedy, no other reason. You might lost interest in some mid chapter or maybe at first because you have different taste in comedy. But for me it was enjoyable ride of chuckles and happiness. <<less

This book was funny even though it had a slow kind of start and the grammar was not that well, you could feel the work being put into it especially things such as referencing which is hard to do each and every chapter. Even though it has a dark humour side it changes mistly after the first 2 volumes.

Really good dungeon management in this novel which is probably my favorite aspect of dungeon-based LNs.

The rest of the story has quite a few things that without good dungeon management I would drop this, but it's probably a 3-4/5 without it in my eyes.

The history is nice the guy doesnt have a insta kill like most MC or a cheat skill from the begining of the history just his brain, most people always complain about Meat and that Khema didnt help her but if they read the novel it was well explained that it was not even chance of save her the guy doesnt have lvl or a cheat skill nor even a weapon, 1 normal guy against several bandits and even a bandit boss that can kill even knights it simple... more>> as go to die, actually that aspect of the story was something out of the norm in the Isekai series the guy doesnt appear and save everyone or is a guy that just go killing everyone doesnt go for a harem or the great cause he just want to live and avoid anyone broke his DC. The battles against others are great he doesnt use a Weapon that kill everyone one sidely or a Mega cheat skill this is the main aspect of the MC that I like, after he get a skill but he almost dont use that or depend in that for win like most of MC.

The history is not like the avarage isekai series this is the slice of life of the guy in another world most people complain just because this:

1 He doesnt have a Cheat skill (at least at the begining)

2 He doesnt go looking for a harem

3 The guy dont go mode god/Bad ass killing everyone like happen in most novels

4 He doesnt have a Nemesis God/Demon king/ Evil royalty that betray him or the likes

Like I said before is a slice of life in another world with comedy and battles that the guy fight using his brain. <<less

I just love this novel, it has many funny moments with various ideas that makes you think that they first didnt have a plan and then get surprised of how they faced the challenge.

The ifrst chapters are a bit slow and could take time to get trough but its worth reading, nowadays I cant wait for the chapters to be released and theyre being translated at an amasing speed so I wont have to wait long.

Its seriously hard to put these feeling into words so please give it a read... more>> and enjoy. ^^ <<less

Nice. It's mostly a comedy which I sometimes found boring and hoping to skip to some events already. But some of the Keima's strategy are really smart. And overall can be summarized as a good read and recommended for people searching for light read.

Was really weird at first because of the rape, fortunately as of now, that's by far the worst thing that happened.

For once, the MC doesn't win just because of cheat powers, he actually thinks of plans to win (confrontations aren't the main part of the novel though... or maybe is that just because of the slow pace...)

The characters are rather likable (but the MC isn't the most likable), and it's funny (but once again, not often because of the major trait of the MC - its laziness. Really, he's... more>> not that lazy)

Overall, it's nice, just not incredible, not the kind of novel you'd F5 the page for 4 hours to get the new chapter as soon as possible. <<less

MC no longer considered as a closed lolicon, he's a lolicon in denial. look, we got a dungeon core loli and dogkin lo- -ehm- *hug* pillow.

The story itself is quite entertaining, the MC did not your common whack-a-mole that kill first and think later, or an over-powerered skill - hey he had to use Dungeon Point sparingly, not to mention his skills or spells had several drawbacks and limitations.

Interested with the 'cunning protag' tag, he'll defeat his enemies by:

Choking a monster to death with kamikaze little things



Tsunami, well, imagine what happen when you flood ants nests


^well those are that I have read so far, lol.

The concept itself is kind of interesting (i am new to this 'dungeon tycoon' thingy tho) with its Dungeon Battle and Yuusha subjugation. It's light-hearted story, although I wish a dark twists behind regarding that dungeon core.

To sum it up, its interesting for dungeon newbie, no information overload, no OP chars, just your slic (ing) life in dungeons...


It end up become inn though, lol.

This is actually pretty good. The Ideas and Plot is unique and comedy is refreshing. The Ecchi tag and Cover is very misleading. Its not Ecchi at all. Though I hate the fact the MC is lazy I also like that he Works just as much.

This is actually the WN. I think the LN sucks because the Heroine is not the Loli girl that we love in WN. The Ln is a little more perverted and Ecchi when WN is not. I can't help but feel disappointed on that.

-I don't... more>> know where Romance is going but I hope he ends up with 1 girl. If it turns Polygamy the deep feels about this Story will lose its meaning.
-There's a lot of good Material to work with but its not used to its full potential.

There's a Girl whose left alone and her name is Rokuko. However despite being the main heroine she has short scenes. The Author doesn't make use of this Character. You could emphasize more on her "loneliness and character". Her backstory is good but not used! This could be a really deep story. There's also a girl called Meat. I don't like the Fact that she's a potential lover. She's already had s*x a lot of times against her own will as a slave so... she's really stained and unworthy of being a Heroine.


I hate the fact the MC is very weak but coming from a Technological Era to the Middle Ages, he uses all his knowledge as a cheat and I like that. This is more of a Strategy Warfare Tactics that he uses to conquer other Dungeons.

Yare Yare its a shame that good potential is being wasted. But you got to read this! Its very entertaining and fun to read. Story-wise it sucks. Things are very disorganize. <<less

Not bad. Worth reading. Some plot hole, but not significant. Some loli/s*xual, but not to pervert degree. Humor and funny and pun. No shove-down-your-throat scene which_predicatable.

Good novel, good translation. Not waste your time.

... dangerous.

I mean literally depicting lolicon s*x scenes... It nearly turned me off this great novel. That was only a lure to anger readers or entice they're lolicon traits if they're like that. So that they would hate the bandits more and love pure Meat-chan.

Still... it could have done without the overly dramatic use of meat-chans personality change. Yup, she's a total M.... more like it. She's happy about being petted too. But actually seems to harbor, the need to be hurt by the one they love.

If only he... more>> made her an adult beast girl from the start.. not a lolicon. For sure it was for cuteness bonus and because having an MC who has s*x is a no go it seems. <<less

The MC really IS lazy. As a testament to that:


he spent the first arc of the story inside ONE room, all the time, without leaving.


fortunately, unlike alot of the supposedly “genius” mc’s out there, our MC here actually has the brains to make it work. It’s still too early to judge this accurately but it’s really turning into a very fun read.

The story is quite funny. The MC is seriously smart at playing trick and manipulating people. He managed to advantage most of the situation by pulling a trick which caused me to chuckle in laughter. As for the story, the plot is really nice since it is world building. We can see the development of the world basically focused on the dungeon in the beginning of the story however the pace for dungeon build almost disappear in the middle of the story and it moves to the part where the... more>> interaction of MC and side character happen. <<less

I dropped this one at chapter 64, because the author has made the main character into a hypocrite by this time. The MC is supposed to be super lazy and reflecting the title "Lazy Dungeon Master", but he goes from always sleeping to actually going to a town miles away himself, and puts effort into his dungeon to "be able to be lazy later on" which is a complete 180 from his character. But this is a novel, and novels need progress, so he will never again be "lazy". Therefore... more>> I'm just dropping this novel as is. <<less

good at start, lots of dungeon related stuffs and proper usage of strategies, but after 200++ starts to deteriorate, gotten way too off the original development line and romance starts to begin at full blast

within a few chapters, dungeon core got way more clingy, invited succubus to dungeon, got forced to go flirt around the village, noble girl pushed to him like she is hypnotized and he just stupidly goes with the flow

nothing more about DP spending around 210++ or dungeon related stuffs

Despite "lazy" being in the title, I kind of wish the MC would be more active because when he gets serious, he pulls off some crazy stuff. Some find the repeated use of "create golem" to be unnecessarily redundant, but I found it intriguing to see the extent of his ingenuity with it.. One thing I personally found was that I couldn't really hate any of the characters, since there isn't really a villain. (Although if you read the side stories from the receptionist's POV you will LOATHE her). I... more>> do expect that to change however, with the introduction of Leona in chapter 228. <<less

I don't get how people can dislike this novel, because although it is not anything too great it should, in my opinion, at least get a 3, what I mean is that this novel doesn't have enough characteristics for someone to hate it... Personally I find the MC pretty funny + the dungeon system pretty good hence the 4/5

umm, it's okay I guess? Something you'd read to pass time but not anything serious nor go all the way to be comedy top-notch (i rated it 2 because it's something in-between which I didn't enjoy much) it could also be said 'generic isekai' thingy, almost all character have a cardboard box personality (even MC suffered from this, and his quirk of lazyness feel fakes when compared to a novel like lazy king) the only thing (or two) that keep me reading is it's light feeling from newspaper's cartoon of... more>> sort and mc's golem fetish (probably the core goblin fetish too lol) other thing is just repetitive not interesting (mc's sleep trait, his thigh fetish, no serious story, almost all-character are one-dimension) <<less
