There's one thing I'm convinced of. I don't want to get married any time soon.

Box of Happiness (辛福の箱, Kōfuku no Hako) is a short story that is part of an anthology of short stories based on the Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan series. It was written by Ballad Kitaguni and published by Shueisha. Box of Happiness was included with the August 2017 issue of Ultra Jump to coincide with the eighth episode release of the Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan series.

It was then compiled in a collection named Rohan Kishibe Does Not Frolic with three other stories, which released for sale on July 19, 2018. Box of Happiness is on pages 3–59 in the volume.


Rohan is called to the home of Ikkei Gozan (五山 一京(ござん いっけい), Gozan Ikkei), an antique dealer with whom he was acquainted with, under the pretext of "I want to show you a strange item." He places an item wrapped in furoshiki in front of Rohan called the "Happiness Box", which apparently has happiness packed inside. Rohan becomes angry thinking that Gozan was scheming something and is about to go home without touching the box. However, the furoshiki wrapping suddenly unravels itself to reveal innumerable ceramic pieces.

Rohan becomes irritated that he was falling for Gozan's trick. He then understands that it is actually a puzzle and could only be assembled by someone with special talents such as a Stand user. Thus, Rohan starts assembling the box out of curiosity.
