I Said Make My Abilities Average! (LN) - Volume 18 - Chapter Aft

Hint: To Play after pausing the player, use this button



LONG TIME NO SEE, everyone. FUNA here. We’ve made it to Volume 18 of Average! The big 20-volume mark is finally in sight… And the third volume of the manga reboot will be released on March 10th! Please support both the novels and the manga if you can!

The Crimson Vow have successfully leveled up to C-rank and finally begun to tackle proper quests on the new continent. As part of their first “inactive request,” they encounter a bunch of furballs, get acquainted with the elder dragons of a new land…and then meet a strange girl.

C’mon, girls, cut that last one loose!

On the other hand, it’s so typical for the Crimson Vow to keep her around just because she’s interesting…


Zalm: “Silva demands that you hurry back… He has even offered to take you as his lawful wife if you so desire.”

Mile: “Can it!”

Old Fisherman: “Whaddya say to another raiding voyage?”

Mile: “What, you want us to make that a regular event?!”

Mavis: “Well, of course he does. He gets to avenge his friends and family, and he gets a good haul as an added bonus…”


When will the girls depart for the capital? And how long before they’re reunited with the Wonder Trio? Only time will tell.

Now, forgive me for talking about my series under a different publisher, but if you picked this volume up in a bookstore, please take a look around. Do you see anything else? Say, for instance, Saving 80,000 Gold in Another World for My Retirement Volume 8 or I Shall Survive Using Potions! Volume 9 (both published under Kodansha K Light Novel Books)? 

Now take a look at the obi…

Oh, yes! Following the Fall 2019 anime of Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!, my remaining two works are getting anime adaptations! This means that all three series I’ve written have been published in print, adapted into manga…and now animated. That’s an incredible batting average of three times at bat and three home runs! And I owe it all to my readers. Thank you so much!

Average was the last of the three series to be launched but the first to be published, adapted into manga, and animated, so I’m delighted that the others are finally getting the same treatment. Every last one of my works has crossed the finish line, shoulder to shoulder. Could there be any greater joy for an author?


Pauline: “There’s still hope for a video game!”

Reina: “What about a movie?”

Mavis: “Wasn’t there an early screening of 80,000 Gold at Shinjuku Wald 9?”

Reina: “Oh, good point… No, it may have been on the big screen, but that doesn’t count as a movie!”

Mile: “Don’t forget about the Hollywood live-action film!”

Reina, Pauline, and Mavis: “Anything but that!!”


Thanks for supporting my “Tiny Girls Who Look 12 or 13” trilogy in book, manga, and now anime format!

And finally, to the chief editor; to the illustrator, Itsuki Akata; to Yoichi Yamakami, the cover designer; to everyone involved in the proofreading, editing, printing, binding, distribution, and selling of this book; and to everyone who’s taken these stories into their homes, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

I am sure that we will see each other again with the next volume…
