Megumin's Turn! (めぐみんのターン, Megumin no Taan) is the first volume of the Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! light novel series.


Set two years before the beginning of the main series, this novel follows Megumin and Yunyun's time as students in the Crimson Demon village's school. As a child, Megumin is saved from a black beast by a big-breasted woman using Explosion magic, which later serves as her own inspiration to learn the high-power spell. The beast is shrunken by the woman and becomes a small cat, which is later adopted by Megumin and nicknamed Chomusuke. In school, Megumin and Yunyun are repeatedly competing with one another to be the best student, with the former hoping to raise enough Skill Points to learn Explosion magic.
