Are you enjoying the comedy of the season /a/?
The animation is too cartoony. I only save reaction faces with serious animation. Pic related, Dagakushi does it much better
This show easily could be AOTS if the character design close to LN
I have no idea who the protagonist's voice is, but he does a damn good tsukkomi.
It's fantasy medieval land. Actually I think that was brought up in the LN. The gist of it is nobody cares what age you are if you want to drink but you're responsible for yourself.
her voice is cute and arousing.
oh god dont tell me their is an entire race out of this girl
What was DEEN implying with this particular sequence of flashbacks?
If you have two screens you might be able to use this.
So anons, a boy or a girl?
I don't know about futaba, but it seems to have brought the first volume up top rank 10 in the weekly LN sales, and the second volume to rank 15. >>136391124
Multiples of both.
Why do I have a feeling they're be doing different video games reference for each episode? 1st was the pause screen and 2nd was the questing screen.
Also apparently the chinks are getting a poster of Aqua if they buy the special edition.
Would it be a chunni? A kid made by Yunyun and Kazuma would seem pretty damn sane to me.
Seems like it. End of volume 8 involves Megumin asking Kazuma to come to her room.
Anything involving Megumin usually also involves Yunyun.
>Yunyun is the only one who is wearing her cloak/uniform properly.
>Komekko tries to imitate the others with a patched cloak.
I don't believe so, at most the LN artist has been posting some similar type of stuff on his Pixiv.
It's not as if you're incapable of supporting them.
I import the BDs for one show per season. That's about 70 bucks a month, roughly the same price as an internet connection in my country.
>“What did you say before that? Before that line, what am I like…?”
>The Princess heard what I said and replied:
>“Erm… I feel that you are just like my Onii-sama from long ago…”
>“Please say it again.”
>Her Highness was a bit troubled but she still humoured me:
>“Y-you are like my Onii-sama.”
>“Can you say it more intimately, again…”
>She said to me.
>“Like my Onii-chan.”
>And so, I chose to stay in this castle.
Does she appear in the show? I need to watch this fucking scene
Eh, it shows him with a frothy mug of ale in his hand, even if it doesn't actually show him drinking the ale it's implied IMO.
And it's great.
We should hunt tetsufrogs.
He constantly has a beer mug full beside him. I guess it hasn't actually shown him taking a drink yet. They do the whole cheers thing multiple times in the first episode. There's no way it isn't implied he's drinking.
What the fuck was her problem? Is she some kind of pervert with brain problems?
Their uselessness reminds me of these dummies.
>"Are you serious? You think you can win without your armour and weapon? You are wearing just a flimsy and pretty dress today. If you take a hit from my steal that has certain kill properties in battle, you would end up in a disastrous state.”
>“Just try me.”
>Darkness treated my words as baseless intimidation and said curtly.
>“... Do you really understand? If you wear so little, you will end up naked after taking three hits from steal. I can still forgive you now…”
>“I said try me.”
>Darkness cut me off and took another step forward.
>“Hey, are you kidding me? Is this really okay? I really will do it alright?”
>“I’ve already said, try me if you dare! It’s just you and me here! Come, strip me now if you dare!”
>This girl didn’t care about that!
>“Wait, I get it, let’s talk this over calmly!”
>“There is nothing to talk about, I’ve already steeled myself! You can sexual harass others lightly, but are a coward who doesn’t dare to cross that line, strip me if you can! If you strip me and push me down, you can do whatever you want to me! Try me if you have the guts!”
Yeah she's a pervert through and through. If I recall correctly there was even a time where she complained that Kazuma didn't have the guts to do a night raid on her.
Why? Because she would enjoy it. And I'm being completely serious about that.
This is the most based protagonist I've seen in years. He's alpha, not in the obnoxious "look how sexually direct I am" way, but in a "bitch shut up for one goddamn second/why am I surrounded by complete morons" sort of way.
Oh wow how the fuck did I not notice it? Pretty sure it's Suwacko and Lily White. Not sure who the middle one is though.
Best Demon King Boss deserves his own anime appearance. I hope they add a cameo of him or something for the last episode, maybe when he is trolling all the guys at the Demon King's castle?
He's living up to the Kazuma legacy.
Well it kind of does, her name along with her clothes shows she's really a
noblewho is trying a bit too hard to look like a hardened adventurer.
She get's made fun of both early on about it if I recall correctly.
Truly the MC we need
How is he alpha when he died in the most bitch way, got laughed at even after his death, get treated like a pussy by the loli and blush at the knight like stuttering autist?
There is nothing alpha about this guy.
What that was that?
There is something wrong her right?
He believe in gender equality anon
calling him alpha is a bit over the line really, since pretty much his whole personality revolves around being an asshole who hits back when hit, being underhandedly deviant and being a lolineet.
>friend from work recommends me this show
>tell her I don't watch sao haremshit anime
>she tells me to give it chance cause the characters are actually likable
>mfw after these 2 episodes
Boy I'm sure glad I gave this a try. Might be my AOTS
Cute girls crying makes me aroused.
It's a great show, and definitely has had some good reaction images so far, but reaction goldmine of the season definitely goes to Koukaku no Pandora, hands down, no contest.
Man, is it just me, or is good comedy just not as appreciated as good drama? Like even if the comedy is really good, it will always end up being second tier to things that are "deep" or "thinking."
From the thumbnail I almost mistook that for Byakuren.
Too much reaction image
I hate this meme, you homos did the same thing to Mi-kun
For me it's because comedy comes from inherent enjoyment and fun, while a drama you have to invest more than just your ability to watch and enjoy. You do have to "think" about it more, at least to appreciate and comprehend the drama, while comedy can come and go with no effort on your part.
>LUK main stat protag
>dick-ass rogue mindset
>bullies the fuck out of everybody
>uses party to make up for shit combat capability
This is everything I've ever wanted from a vidya fantasy anime.
Funnily enough it's actually the opposite, his party is dragging him down because they're all incompetent retards despite their natural talent and advanced classes.
When he switched parties to a more capable group, none of whom had advanced classes (they were standard classes, mage, warrior and I think archer) he impressed them with how capable and resourceful he was.
Conversely the poor sap who took over leading his party had a horrible time because he was tethered to a bunch of drooling retards.
If they beat bathnamek I'll honestly be amazed.
Wiz might be as lacking in common sense, sure but she is in no way as much of a bitch as aqua. Wiz is actually a kind sweet person.
Now anyway, she apparently used to be very violent.
>mfw chuuni mage appears
>oh boy another useless fuck it's gonna be one of those shows
>yeah, yeah, the good ole' 30 second chuuni chant into fizzle, I know how this goes
>she actually drops a nuke
>woah shit nigger
>she falls flat on her face
I guess it was funny
>bullies the fuck out of everybody
Is this what happens when a series caters to S rather than M? Because I like it.
Is there much difference in that?
Everybody bullies everybody in the series. The banter is the main reason it's funny. There does need to be more series like it though.
How do you read those. Is it doing well or not?
Verily. It's the difference between a show like WCW and Another
Because she gets bored easily and wants do everything besides heal.
She was just trying to use her naturally high strength in those instances.
It's just that she's so stupid, she went ahead and used blunt attacks to which they were told the frogs were essentially immune to.
Oh this is pretty far from wish fulfillment. MC suffers way too much for that.
She's good enough at street performance that she makes another performer break down and cry.
>oh hey it's another show where mc is a beta loser faggot yet some how is the most intelligent person in the entire series but even with all those smarts he still cant get laid despite the fact every girl wants to jump on his dick.
when did /a/ become /r/anime with its shit taste?
>Generals of the Demon Lord keep appearing around him
What ? Did you just fucking spoil me you shit ass nigger ?
You can't self-insert here, the protagonist is too smart for you.
First number is its sales ranking, giving a general idea of how quickly it's selling it a given point in time. Second number is the number of "points" it's accumulated, a general approximation of what the preorder figures are like.
For adaptations of well-known series, there's usually a big boost in numbers for the first couple weeks as all the existing fans preorder right away. Based on the numbers this isn't something that has much of an existing following. It's also not hugely popular yet or anything either, 3 digits means it's selling some but for a major success you really want to get into the 2 digit range.
For something like this they're clearly promoting a lesser-known work, so usually the hope is that the show will be able to generate a boost in popularity that will snowball into a major success (through BD sales or boosting the source material's popularity) by the end of the season.
I was trying to use WCW as an example of a show with retarded girls and Another as an example of a retarded show.
I actually went through the ANN forum to see what some anons were complaining about, and holy hell was it hilarious.
There were people saying that the show wasn't funny because "they were meanspirited". Holy shit do these twats not understand the concept of banter? If you can't be an asshole with your friends, then frankly they aren't very good friends.
Honestly don't know. There's a running gag in the series where Kazuma is doing something important but sees Aqua doing a performance. He at first things it is a common parlor trick type of thing, but then she does something impossible and it starts distracting him.
Her performances are apparently top-notch.
>where mc is a beta loser faggot
Didn't bother actually reading/watching the series at all. Always nice to have these retards lowering the average IQ standards here.
>some how is the most intelligent person in the entire series
Except he isn't the smartest and it is explicitly stated as such. He's barely above average, and it only shows through his crafty nature.
>he still cant get laid despite the fact every girl wants to jump on his dick.
Except none of the girls want to jump onto his dick well into the series. And even then one of them outright begs for him to do it at one point.
So yeah, stupidity is fine and all but you should really keep yours to yourself.
Except you're not, Kazuma isn't a pair of trousers, he's his own character.
If anything series like Nisekoi fit that bill more than this one. Those harem MC's are the definition of generic and devoid of personality in order to make it easier for you to self-insert.
>wanting to self insert into a guy who became a NEET because he got cucked by a delinquent senpai and died by pissing himself to death and everyone in the other world town know him as scum and trash
are you a masochist?
Like, Kazuma died in the most pathetic way possible and you're not supposed to feel sorry for him.
This is the guy who asked his parents to divorce and remarry somebody else because he wanted a non-blood related little sister, he deserves most of the shit he gets.
Well it's pretty clear that the shitposters have started crawling in. Always nice when they are obvious about it though.
On a more relevant note. Best Goddess has steadily been getting more and more appearances in the series.
Do you think Aqua will ever figure out that
Chrisis Eris? And if so how do you think the dynamic would work out?
The setting is dark to begin with, but that's about it. Everything else is pure comedy for the most part. No angst or drama to be found really.
>There were people saying that the show wasn't funny because "they were meanspirited".
Holy shit indeed anon. That's pathetic. The reason this show actually causes me physical pain from laughter is that it reminds me with interactions of my actual friends. If you can't be a dick to your friends and they to you, you do need better friends. Though vol 5 was just perfect comedy. The chunni bastards are the best thing I've ever read. If the spinoff for them is anywhere near as funny I hope sky transl-writes some fanfiction for it at some point.
So Kazuma, what’s with you all of a sudden? If you want a sister, instead of discussing with us, you should ask your parents right?”
“I already told my parents plenty of times that I want a younger sister. And it must be a sister that is not related to me by blood, so they need to hurry up and divorce, and remarry with someone that has a daughter. That was the first time my parents beat me up.”
“They must be wonderful parents to not have chased their son who said something like that out.”
For my case, it's because he's interesting, retaliative but not insufferable and not really a scum 24/7.
You should self-insert to feel how the MC feel, be proud for whatever legit and effective decision the MC had made, and enjoy the rewards that come after that.
It's made more apparent as the series goes on but Kazuma is a jerk.
The reason why he and Aqua become best bros is because they're the only people that can actually stand each other.
She's also a master of arts and crafts and paints 10/10 masterpieces then erases them when she's done and created a convincing replica of a noble house's insignia intending to abuse it before it was promptly destroyed.
>Should've used a less provocative opening post
Not really all that provocative honestly. Just mentioned it because the thread was getting derailed a tad from actually talking about the series itself.
People need to learn to ignore those posts was all I'm trying to say.
>Twisting of the neck from falling off a tree
>Beaten to death
As of volume 8 I believe those are his deaths so far. The last one was by a Hydra by the way. They actually had to cut it open to find parts of him to revive.
They're not supposed to be able to revive again, no. Aqua is tied to him however so she just bullies Eris as her superior to break the rules and revives him. She is her superior goddess still, even as stupid as she is.
He asked for exactly that at his third death I believe. Though it was half-jokingly.
He reconsidered after they started messing around with his corpse. And Megumin wrote
‘Holy sword Excalibur ↓’on his abdomen with a marker.
Yes it is, most people consider it useless because it's range is too ridiculous actually. It's overkill for almost everything, and any teammates you have around would likely get caught up in the blast too.
Megumin obviously doesn't care about that though.
I put my Excalibur into Yunyun if you know what I mean
Mondaiji is boring. There is no banter and they are actually competent. It is funny to see a dysfunctional party of minmax wannabe
I want to make this girl sticky.
Yes, he's NBR-fag though.
“Hey Aqua! I am tired of life and won’t be going back! I want to reincarnate as a baby and start over! Send my regards to the others!”
When she heard what I said, Eris yelled.
In the end…
“What nonsense are you saying! Wait!”
As I listened to Aqua’s panicking voice, I turned to Eris.
“In summary, Eris-sama, I have a request. I won’t ask for much— but if possible, I hope to be a boy in my next life. I hope to be born into a family with a beautiful elder step sister and a cute younger sister.”
Yunyun is best girl!
Here you go anon.
Haven't seen this one yet. First it's the Aqua doujin, and now this.
Why do the scanning gods hate us so?
>>oh hey it's another show where mc is a beta loser faggot yet some how is the most intelligent person in the entire series but even with all those smarts he still cant get laid despite the fact every girl wants to jump on his dick.
1) he's not a beta loser retard. he's LAZY and he HATEs the girls around him. He doesn't fuck them because he's afraid that will lead to a relationship with a RETARD.
2) the girls don't even want to fuck him. they are too STUPID to think in those terms. Darkness wants to be raped, she's a pervert. Meg is too scared of a physical relationship and probably only wants a non-touching boyfriend, and Aqua would never let some lower lifeforms human touch her divine body like that.
The problem is while the MC and Darkness have had the best chances to fuck, they're both virgins and find a way to chicken out at the last moment every fucking time.
>This series continues to not take itself seriously, right? Like there it won't suddenly turn grimdark or anything?
it's a grimdark world with horrible things happening all the time, but no, the story itself will always be mindblowingly silly.
Honestly, I find myself more pleased by the backgrounds than I do caring about the QUALITY.
It's not like the important scenes aren't animated nicely anyway.
yeah but his willing to make a child with the yunyun and wants to marry eris . He doesnt really want to try and do something and there is also that thing that dust said that if female adventurers found they would castrate him
No it was beer, later when they become rich for certain reason both aqua and hikizuma will drink wine. Even hikizuma drinks aqua's high quality wine and replaces it with the shitty one.
Dust-san said it best actually that fucking your party member is bad.
Why do it considering it come with all kind of baggage while you can engage the services of cute succubus-neechan?
Here's some illustrations to accompany the fanfic for those of you who don't have them.
>yeah but his willing to make a child with the yunyun and wants to marry eris . He doesnt really want to try and do something and there is also that thing that dust said that if female adventurers found they would castrate him
but that just underlines the point. Yunyun is a hotty with a sexy body and a actually has a brain between her ears. she's lovably nieve and kind but otherwise there is nothing malfunctioning in her head unlike the idiot trio. And Eris is simply perfection. he'd have to be a homo to not want to bag and tag eris.
>Dust: “But we can’t lay a hand on the female adventurers sleeping near us. If you did that, you will be discovered by the other female adventurers who would gang up on you. Or your target might be hiding a dagger and you would risk getting castrated. Things like that do happen.”
The context is that Dust and/or his friends sometimes try to bang their female companions in the stables. Every time without consent so of course anyone would draw a knife in that situation.
What exactly is this? That image was posted in a couple of threads so far and people asked for scans. I'm just curious to know what it is. It looks like official art, but nothing has been that lewd so far.
No problem anon. I might compile all the illustrations together and put it up in the same Mega link with the volumes in it.
Unless Sky updates the fanfic site with all the images. Would be a bit redundant then.
More like a sister con.
Here's him in her body though.
Onto the coloured pages.
Iris is wearing an artifact created by one of those Japanese twats, Kazuma reads the Japanese writing on it and it switches their minds.
Basically someone gave that to the royal family plotting to switch with one of them.
Aqua's face here is priceless. Does she just not give a fuck that Megumin is about to publicly shame Kazuma into getting what she wants, or is she just to stupid to realize it?
Anon, look at his party members.
Wiz, Aqua, Megumin and Lalatina all have the mental age of an elementary kid.
Only Yunyun and Eris has something befitting of a human brain.
Fuck, onii-chan was part of the fanfic? Then even if there was an S2 this would never be a thing
The artist is a bit inconsistent at times. There are a couple of images with Eris and Chris that lack the scar for some reason.
I appreciate this particular director for the good work he does. But my dislike for DEEN will only end when they stop being shit in general.
Granted they aren't as bad as Toei, but they still have a lot to improve on.
>See this thread
>I think i watched this
>Turn on first episode
>Remember that i dropped it within the first minute because of truck-kun
Why do people watch this garbage?
Don't forget that Darkness, as erotic as she may be, kind of disturbs him a lot. He may like her body, but her M tendencies are a bit of a turn-off for him.
Which is what led him to be attracted to a more "normal" girl like Eris.
Einstine defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results but getting the same
This is how i feel about harem animes every time i see them
Same repeditive crap with a few chamges
You're a fucking monster.
KonoSuba doesn't act like a harem until five volumes in. That's almost two years where it never really adhered to those harem tropes.
And the insanity thing is really random trip-fag. You do know that definition is also used for the term "retarded" right?
You did not see how he actually died huh
>***,345位/***,407位 (***,184 pt) [*,**2予約] 2016/03/25 この素晴らしい世界に祝福を! 第1巻 [Blu-ray]
Looks like it gains some traction.
I hope the next episodes will deliever. Some of the stories in the later volumes must be animated!
The only retard here is you anon. You dropped something after barely seeing what it may be.
And when multiple people point out your stupidity, claiming that the show is retarded and not you just goes to show how actually retarded you are.
Funny how things work like that.
It is a shame that we won't get to see slime-kun and lamia-san animated
Why even live?
>It doesn't matter what something actually is, only what I stupidly assumed it was
And that's how they measure the autism spectrum folks. You always need something to act as the barometer.
It's okay anon, a lot of other people didn't get it either, so you're not alone.
Still kind of silly how many people took the word "fanfic" at face value though.
Only one if I recall correctly. They show up again in volume 7 briefly.
In volume 8 they have pretty much the entire adventurer's guild fighting all at once. And Aqua seemed to be the only real healer around.
So it seems like they are a real rarity. Though apparently the Axis Cult's main city is completely filled with them.
Only the mage, Rin, was a female.
Once upon a time, that group also spent their days living in a barn. One of the males got pent up and tried raping Rin. He almost got castrated.
That's why we have graveyards that infinitely spawn undead.
I always roll
To be fair, Healers have Holy-elemental spells that are super effective on demonic and undead enemies so they're not gimped that badly. And if the party values, you know, "being alive" they'll let you get the occasional final-hit in to keep your levels on par.
Yep, I rushed in too quickly and assumed they're actually something the author stuck in the middle of the Vol.6 for shits and giggles, since only the entries for these were in the front page
The way it was delivered had me in stitches.
