There are two good Konosuba crossovers with Shirou.

The cross-over has me intrigued. Let's see if I'll make it through. But the mobile links are troublesome on my desktop. Here's the same stuff corrected,

I think I like the cross-over idea, but the 2 stories above just don't cut it. In fact, I think some of the passages are similar between the stories. (might be wrong - perhaps I just don't like the writing style?)

The problem I have is conceptual, as I can't comment if those stories are good or not as I've not read them. Shirou is not the main character of that series, which in itself i not an issue, but unlike some other potential crossover characters, is neither insulting enough, vindictive enough, or of the right personality to really take offense enough, to get riled up to make a wish the same as the main character did, and even if so, would certainly not handle the end result remotely like the main.

Then it's a good thing he doesn't replace Kazuma in either of them.

Yes... but then you run into the issue of it deviating too much from the setup, which is the main appeal, at least to me...

On a different note, I noticed no one mentioned that 'Promises of a Wandering Hero' by Neoalfa updated. Though there really was not IMHO all that much in it to move the plot forward this time. To be more honest, I'd prefer a return of Rider, or concentrating on the Motoko and Naru subplots than focus given to Illya and or his biological sister. Besides Illya acting the way she is seems odd considering he is with at least Rider and Sakura in this currently and at least somewhat with Rin.

I think we see plenty of Motoko. Honestly, I'd rather see a chapter focusing on Kitsune's investigations. Another visit from Professor McDowell would be welcome also. The one thing we haven't ever seen in this story though, which I find exceedingly odd, is Shirou in his workshop. The only magecraft we've even seen that I can recall are in his fights with the Aoyama (one chapter) and a mention of his fake Kanshou and Bakuya that don't attract each other.

The general premise seems to be that Shirou died, met Aqua and got sent to the fantasy world. A bit later, Kazuma died and things proceeded as in canon. Aqua is still tied with Kazuma, with Shirou tagging along.

What irks me, is that Shirou acts as the straight man. There are moments where Kazuma is mistaken as a pervert - eg, coming back to town with Aqua and Megamin covered in slime or 'steal' -ing a female's undergarments. Shirou just thinks the worst - Kazuma sweats when Shirou looks at him.

It's those moments, that got me to drop the fic. I think I would have continued to read, if Shirou would have stood with Kazuma - or got a different kind of embarrassment. It would have been a funny story, I think.

But these aren't that. Pity.

I do think that probably would have been a more understandable reaction if he'd seen the aftermath of Kazuma stealing Chris's panties, when he was spinning them around laughing like a mad man.

The chapter spells out why. Rin, Sakura, and Rider aren't trying to lay claim to the title of "Shirou's sister." Kanako is, thus the aggression.

You are correct, they are not laying claim to being his sister... they are, each in their own way, laying claim to *him*...

Surprised no one mentioned yet that 'God Slaying Blade Works' by Marcus Galen Sands, the crossover with Campione, has updated to chapter 43.

I don't mention stories that I don't read and I dropped that one a long time ago.

Huh. Neo's getting married.
Thanks for pointing this out. I haven't been reading his stories of late, but am glad to send him well wishes.
