The Let This Grieving Soul Retire (Nageki no Bourei wa Intai Shitai: Saijiyaku Hunter ni Yoru Saikiyou Patei Ikusei Jutsu) books, which revolve around treasure hunters, are written by Tsukikage and illustrated by Chyko. Book one arrived in August 2018, within the same year as the web novel’s debut on Shousetsuka ni Narou, and volume 11 is set to launch on February 29 this year. Micro Magazine publishes the series under its GC Novels label.

J-Novel Club describes the plot as:

It’s the golden age for treasure hunters—adventurers hungry for wealth, fame, power, and glory, who risk their lives in treasure vaults throughout the world. “Let’s become treasure hunters.” Krai and his childhood friends swore to become the greatest of them all, but that dream should have died the day Krai realized he wasn’t cut out for the job! Yet expectations continue to mount, right along with Krai’s fear for his life. While his childhood friends climb closer toward their dream, this grieving soul has one simple wish: to pack it all in and retire!

There’s also a manga by Rai Hebino, which Yen Press publishes in English.
