Which Crimson Demon would you marry?
Megumin is the best. Who else claims her man like this.
>Speaking of which, there were plenty of beautiful girls in the Home of the Crimson Magic.
>And that made me a little nervous.
>However, the two of them seemed a little tense too, or maybe it was just my imagination.
>Megumin who was watching our conversation suddenly threw a bomb.
>“Hey, I understand you don’t have much chance to meet guys and are lonely, but please don’t flirt with my man.”
>When they heard that, all three girls except Megumin were shocked.
>“Hey, hey, what did you say…!? So you were serious when you said you like me last night!?”
>This shocked the three of them even more.
>Dodonko and Funifura were at a loss and asked in a fluster—
>“Ma-ma-man!? That Megumin who didn’t care about anything other than magic has a man!? Is that a lie? It is right?You like him as a boyfriend?”
>“That-that-that’s right, it must be. Megumin who isn’t concerned about such thing, suddenly having a man… is impossible huh?”
>The two of them said.
>What is this?
>Yunyun asked in a panic:
>“Ka, Kazuma-san? Is this true? Me-Megumin made such a confession…”
>She asked softly.
>I asked Megumin with eye contact, ‘would it be fine to tell the truth?’
>“Don’t think too much about this– Kazuma already met my parents and gifted them with snacks. We even bathed together before, and had been sharing in the same bed and blanket with our bodies rubbing against each other. That’s how simple our relationship is.”
>The pale Funifura and Dodonko took a few unsteady steps back.
>Megumin wasn’t lying though.
>The corner of her lips rose in a smirk as if she was showing off.
>“… Wah, waahhh! So, so what if you have a man ahhh!”
>“I, I am not envious! I am not envious ahhhh!”
>The two of them uttered such lines before running off.
>Next, Megumin said to Yunyun who was blushing and at a loss.
>Megumin is just as alpha as Kazuma
They're perfect for each other
How much of an asshole is Kasuma?
>“Megumin, can you take a look at this, I just finished the ‘Legend of the Crimson Magic Hero’ chapter two. The scene about the burning of the Home of the Crimson Magic is really descriptive, I am really confident about it.”
>The scene about the burning of the Home of the Crimson Magic…
>Wasn’t Arue that…!
>That weirdo who sent that letter out of nowhere.
>“Hoho, let me read your masterpiece…”
>The one who forced me to come to this village!
>“So it’s you ahhhhh!!”
>I grabbed the stack of paper from Megumin and tore them in half.
>“Ahhhh… My, my masterpiece… The crystallization of my effort after staying up all week…”
>“This is the first time I see Arue who is usually cool and collected acting like this.”
>Arue hugged the torn pieces of papers and collapsed onto the ground. Megumin patted her shoulder.
>“It’s your fault…! All because of you! You know how much I was looking forward to it and how happy I was!? Do you know how depressed I became!? Stop toying with a man’s heart!”
>“Me, Megumin, what is with this rude man!? Doing something so mean to someone he first met! I was really scared!”
>“You created a series of misunderstanding that almost scared me to death! You even said something like ‘the village… is burning…’! And what was with your new work! While we were risking death in battle outside, you were snuggling at home and writing that!? You know how much trouble I went through because of the doodling you mailed to Yunyun!?”
He was the one that misunderstood what Arue was saying to SOMEONE ELSE. He was the one that made Sylvia stronger and risked Megumin's clan, destroying their village and making them spend 3 or 4 days reconstructing.
And he blamed Arue for his failures.
He really, really is a HikkiNEET. Everything else is someone else's fault.
This exemplifies Kazuma's ideology
>“Thou hikkikomori who is at a lost. Don’t blame yourself too much… It is the world’s fault that thou don’t want to work hard, it is thy environment’s fault that your personality is twisted, it is thy gene’s fault for being ugly. Don’t blame thyself, just push the blame to others…”
He always blames Aqua and others for his mistakes.
It's 50:50. If you understand the general structure of Asian languages, then no problems really. Korean was my first language so it wasn't too hard, but I can see why English-speakers would have a hard time learning it.
After all, it took me 5 years to finally grasp English well.
What are the chances we get doujins of the succubi?
It's a weird case of translation issue, the languages being 'sensible human talk' and 'chuu2 fanfiction'. Kazuma didn't know the entire village was this tier (and he's never seen Megumin write anything), and it was formatted in a way that might lead people to easily believe that the person was being dead serious and not talking her personal headcanon world.
I am going to sleep and wish to be visited by a succubus tonight, how do I make it happen?
No, she didn't. She has no fault Yunyun is a dumbass.
Also, they found out pretty fast that her part of the letter was just a chapter of her book, so she didn't exactly affect the group going there.
we're starting to get a lot of fan arts
it's not 0% at least
does your life force/vitality regenerate though?
or is it like fullmetal alchemist? if you use it, it shortens your life span
The hell is this I thought he ordered a Darkness succubus
This looks nothing like Darkness
I'm getting real fucking tired of this bait
He ordered a busty shy / inexperienced oneechan. The succubus is there to facilitate the dream.
Imagine you buy a bike and someone drives to your house in a truck, he's not giving you the truck he's giving you the bike which is currently stowed inside the truck
I like Megumin, but I do not understand the apparent obsession with her. She doesn't seem particularly better than Aqua or Darkness.
Who are you trying to say is the town's bycicle, anon?
There are a thousand reasons. She's a good cute character with a major flaw that makes it all the funnier. She isn't waifubait and she has an actual personality. Also Rie Takahashi is a cutie
She's more intelligent and willing to have sex with Kazuma than either Aqua or Darkness.
Darkness is a very confused girl, so even if she has feelings she can't act on them properly. Megumin isn't like that.
Aqua is also a Shiba Inu. You don't want to fuck your Shiba Inu.
All three girls have a very distinct and overplayed flaw, and her personality seems to revolve around it to some extent, like in the other cases.
>She's more intelligent
They all seem pretty stupid to me. Kazuma is pretty much an asshat half the time and still manages to be the most level-headed of the bunch.
>willing to have sex
That is something with which I cannot argue.
where is it
The Succubi are probably out of most adventurer's league already, since these are people who need to team up on bears that Crimsons can oneshot swarms of
granted they oneshot everything
It's probably just the de-facto gathering area for succubi and there's only that one shop.
She's intelligent but lacks all common sense, which is a common downfall of TTRPG-setting wizards who use WIS as their dump stat - they end up being completely retarded and failing rolls to realize that the big man offering them candy in a dark alley doesn't have candy.
When she actually thinks about shit she's not stupid and for some reason is reasonably good at reading people.
Well succubi are all about satifying your deepest intimate desires, right?
Obviously even though he asked for a Darkness they knew he wanted a Megumin
No, they're actually fine socially within their own sphere. It's just a massive culture gap between their world and the rest of the world i.e. the part that actually matters.
And yes, they're geniuses and hilariously overpowered, the Demon King's army gets stackwiped by a tiny defense force spamming tier nine spells and the general gets casually trolled until (s)he was probably going to die of a heart attack anyway.
>why is megumin considered a weird name?
it's like a pet name. first of all megu~ is a stupid start to a japanese name, if anything it sounds a bit western to their ears, then it's ended in an affectionate pet name like ~min; so for that to be an actual name would be much like someone in the USA introducing herself as Megs or Megums when her first name is really Megan. No one introduces themselves like that.
If you heard someone claim their first name is Megmeg or Megums, you'd think she was pulling your leg or potentially an idiot or a tragic fool whose parents were high when they named her. All of the crimson semen demons names are like this.
Anyone else surprised how much resistance Darkness put up?
Copying some anon's answer:
>She was both confused and resistant. She was well aware that "washing his back" was basically just a way of segueying into lewd things but wasn't willing just to make that jump immediately because he said "do it." It was his insistent attitude and the scandalous nature of the whole encounter that eventually got her into the mood. You have to remember that she isn't JUST a masochist. She's a high-level degenerate that's intimately familiar with more pornography and male fantasies than most anons. The idea that got into her head, an got her so hot&bothered was to "wash" his back with her breasts. She was going to press her tits with her rock-hard nipples up against his back and stroke gently up and down to make it absolutely abundantly clear that she was 100% ready for whatever came next. It was a way of taking the initiative, sexually, in that situation, which Kazuma had so unsubtly invited her to do, and the realization sinking in, as well as her determined method, were what made her so excited.
>It's worth noting that Darkness is a virgin, but nonetheless a virgin whose fantasized being the the victim end of a victim girls chapter more times than anyone here has fapped to one. Things were slowly clicking together in her head and loins in a way altogether profane.
>. If you understand the general structure of Asian languages, then no problems really.
except japanese is NOTHING like chinese or korean. Japanese is one of 4 languages in the world with no existing root or descendants. it has zero structural or lenguistic similarity to other existing languages. In theory if you learned french you'd have a chance at learning spanish or welsh or romanian or italian (actually french is very similar to italian) or Latin... all those languages are similar in structure, alphabet and even share words (if not pronounciation). Same with English and German (in fact german might just be the easiest language for native english speakers to learn, lord knows i picked up enough to get by in germany just fine in just a month). If you learn mandarin, you'd have a fair chance to learn many of the other "chinese" dialects, as well as korean and a number other asian languages. Japanese however is a different animal all together.
That's not to say japanese is a difficult language. It's just so different from many others, and it's 3 alphabets just add to the headache, that learning japanese really doesn't help you with learning any other language. Just like how learning korean or mandarin won't help you with japanese.
Two alphabets and a kanji system completely unrelated to any alphabet.
>mandarin won't help you with Japanese
Well, spoken won't, but the Nanjing and Shanghai regional dialects are remarkably similar to nipponese. It will also enable you to read almost 100% of all kanji save for some weird unmatched symbols.
I want to fill her butt with my semen.
I wonder what would happen if Aqua was the one going into the bath and not Darkness.
Might have turned into a fight for Kazuma's life.
>Speak for yourself. I can read kanji because it's basically chinese with a couple weird characters thrown in.
>Utter bullshit, I can read and comprehend basic Japanese books with rudimentary knowledge of kana and full knowledge of kanji due to being Chinese and guess most of the rest.
nice samefag autism
the previous post you're splurging over is actually more correct then you give it credit for. The thing that /a/non left out was how japan stole the whole chinese alphabet back around 800ad because chinese was "cool" in Kyo and everyone wanted to be like china to the point they even designed kyo to be identical to the chinese capital. This lead to a 1000+ year dark period of shitty male japanese writing, where almost the only authors of note in japan over that 1000+ year period of time were women, because women used Hiragana to write while men used Kanji because it was "cultured" and "sophisticated" to write with chinese letters.
It wasn't until the meiji restoration we see a proliferation of male japanese authors again. Partily this was due to the new form japanese writing took (the combination of hiragana, kanji and romanji), as well as the far better education standards teaching Kanji to the population as a whole (it's hard to be a writer when you only use kanji to write and only a handful of educated men plus the samurai class can read it, whereas the rest of the population read hiragana).
I samefagged (to take on things I forgot), but those are the wrong two posts.
It's also no longer correct in the way Japanese is written today, when it has taken massive influence from, as you said, the Chinese when it was cool and cultured to use chinkspeak since they were massive and rich.
In the recent volume, Kazuma tried to go to the succubus store but Vanir spoiled his plans right in front of Darkness and Aqua when Kazuma was at Wiz's shop along with the two.
Like Kazuma planned to spent the night out.
Also, we do know that Aqua visits the succbus store at one point in the story and tries to Purge Them All but Vanir shows up, cockblocking her.
Shame no one has translated the Vanir spinoff yet so we don't know the True Fate of the Succubus Store yet and whether or not Aqua purged them all in the end.
How do people eat crab without any of those crunchy tools?
Are the crabs I buy too small because it takes a long time for me to get all the crab meat out of their legs while the anime made the crab meat seem so easy to take out.
However, I heard that seafood is tastier when the sea animal in question is smaller and younger compared to eating from a sea animal that is very large.
For example, some of the big fish that pro fisherman catch and take a picture of, won't taste so good since the fish are so old and large compared to younger and smaller fish.
Does this also apply to crabs and lobsters?
Like would larger crabs and larger lobsters taste better and the reason why they are expensive because their meat is more easier to take out?
Smaller fish, especially river fish, taste stronger.
>how do people eat crab without any of those crunchy tools
By not being a pleb, the same response people who ask me 'how do you eat chicken that has bone' or 'how do you eat fish that's not filleted'
If you found her on the streets, would you offer to
buy her dinner?
>“... What is it? Why are you sighing… Aside from powerful magic abilities, the Crimson Magic race also has high intelligence. I can tell what Kazuma is thinking about.”
> Seeing me sigh as I walk, Megumin asked with a face full of doubt.
>“... I was thinking that… compared to that girl, Megumin is much prettier.”
>“Thank you for your compliment! As thanks, I will give you a tight hug!”
She's a gift to the universe. Definitely best girl of the season
And those clothes were great, thanks based DEEN
>Kaz has three bitches around him at all times
>One is a filthy pervert
>Goes to the succubi dream shop instead of nailing all three
I don't know why I expected anything different.
>wanting this to happen to your johnson
i can't blame him
But none of them would do that.
Darkness would blush and protest at first but then go at it like there's no tomorrow, Megumin would blush and hold hands, and Aqua would just stick out her ass and ask for some wine afterwards.
I like my crimson semen demons with meat
Will elevens ever figure out how chess works?
Nerimaki or Yunyun. I love them both.
>aaaa aaaa aaa aaaa
>no sad cliffhanger episode where
darkness gets hit by explosion in an act of self-sacrifice
>no multiple episodes reserved for Crimson semen demons and their chuuni antics
S2 or riot.
Of course, there is one bastion of the proud white race left.
Did anyone cut the rest of these out from wherever they're from? I only have Eris and Darkness. I want them because they are
Looks like it came from http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?id=154294 but I can't find the two you put up
Would you request a dream where you save a qt succubus from your batshit party and get rewarded by her?
Only if its followe by marriage with said succubus.
Geez I couldn't look at Dullahan the same way again after watching Konosuba
>you will never embarass a succubutt by telling her to enact a vanilla scene with her specifically holding hands under the blankets with the lights off after marriage and a romantic candlenight dinner.
How about Monmusu?
2chan said we would! They wouldn't lie, right? Right?
Post your face when we not only get a season 2, but we get a full season (26 episodes)
not that anon, but I think he was talking about different kind of season
I mean, not season as in winter spring etc
but anime season
k-on!! had 24 episodes
but it's still known as k-on second season, not k-on second season on the first half and then k-on third season on the later half
She'd be okay, but Darkness would be better, not to mention Chris or Wiz. Or the guild lady.
I'd eat out at the succubus restaurant, full course.
Of what? Because yet another one of my fanbase is ruined because animeonlyfag and generalfag? That's the norm on neo-/a/ isn't it? Thanks to you redditors.
I hope Mizukami's manga would never get an anime adaptation.
I was pretty dissapointed in that scene actually. Maybe I was just misreading it, but did they imply that the pieces used in that game looked like chess? I know that the rules for the game totally make no sense to Kazuma and things like teleporting and explosions are actual things and not just Megumin being a dork.
You know what, forget Yunyun. I'm taking Nerimaki.
>We will never see Megumin and Kazuma sleeping together get animated
Demon lord general cockblocks him and Kazuma feels incredibly guilty doing anything to Megumin without her consent as much as he wanted to do so. So he just freezes the window to make the room cold to make her snuggle to him but this only backfires as she notices. Still, she stays close to him and teases him as he gets embarrased
She eventually takes a bath with him and just gets used to it. Also, she sleeps with him literally.
So despite his constant sexual harassment and assholeishness, it's kind of nice to know that the guy actually has limits to what he's willing to do
Or maybe Megumin is too pure for him
She wins in the WN. Given her popularity in the LN and anime, I have little doubt that the same is going to happen.
fuck, i have been busy with work and put this show on my backlog.. marathoned all 9 episode today.
anime of the season, it has been a while since an anime can make me burst out laughin like this since fumoffu.
hope we get fuckin season two or more, this is such a fun show.
I picked them up for the typesetting, it's pretty clean and neat
Original designs of Darkness, Aqua and Megumin for those interested
Would you still love Megumin if she was in her original design?
It's the typical half-asshole type who in the end can't/won't seal the deal because that would require committment, and lord knows that would end shenanigans. Basically for the same way some people like Araragi despite his unholy levels of betamax.
Konosuba was a WN, there were no "original" designs. Even this Webmin we all recognize was the imagination of a fan artist.
Chess was brought over from Japanese cheaters. Guess what cheaters do when they play chess? They cheat. The natives assume those cheats are just part of the regular game rules and voila. You end up with Chuuss.
i would if it's longer than that and is styled differently
current megumin is pretty qt though, she had the right kind of short hair
Would you hug a sleepy Megumin in the morning?
I don't mind it. Honestly, it's not just perversion really, but so much as he just enjoys harassing people and being a pain in the ass. He probably didn't get much affection as a kid and just became an unhappy person after he became a neet due to that incident.
From a pro designer point of view the original design is pretty good and quite original even, but from a business point of view the generic schoolgirl design does appear to neckbeards better and thus generates more profit.
I haven't yet reached far enough in the novel, but considering, well, 'fanfic' by Arue with Yunyun as heroine, I can only say she's dangerous.
Nerimaki and Dodonko don't do anything to me and are so far basically strangers, while Komekko and Funifura give me an instant DAUGHTERU, MUST PROTECT AT ALL COSTS reaction.
That leaves Yunyun and Megumin. So basically, it's down to 'can you get over chuuniness' or do you want to go for outwardly smarter girl and risk a divorce down the road.
Believe it or not, all long-lasting marriages I know have a completely unreasonable, burning passion at the core.
At the same time, my childhood friend is a lawyer. He dated a lawyer girl, a fellow honors student. They joined the same practice, and married to help their careers. 2 years in, they were rising stars and basking in the high society glory, they noticed they should have a child, but why bother rising one when you can adopt? They had enough weight to bully anyone in their way and were given a 3-yr old girl, old enough to be less problematic than a pregnancy and newborn, but still young enough to be malleable... and then their careers split ways.
It's been 3 years since, and they're still at it, fighting divorce court battles, and making their adopted daughter miserable in the process. She was dragged out and taken into custody twice so far, as the court rulings changed. I sometimes talk to either of them, and all I see in their eyes is a mutual, cold, intellectual nothingness. They view one another as nothing, not even enemy... just a stepping stone that was used, then discarded, and now is an obstacle to be removed.
Beware of overly smart...
Now, do I need to state who the most marryable crimson demon is?
She may be a hopless chuuni, scaredycat and a baggage that you may end up carrying home every now and then, but once she makes up her mind she will be a faithful and loving waifu.
He is not that dense, he really wants to put it, but thanks to muh childhood friend trauma, he is afraid of commitment, so he wants the girls to be direct, like how he was expecting that Megumin confess him, but then she put a excellent mage!
Yeah, he always forget the nice abs!
Anon, the age in that world is 14, like Megumin
D-do you hate demons that much?
Fucking hell, my sides!
I don't even remember the last time I actually laughed out loud watching anime.
Even with all that awkward DEEN! animation going on this entire scene was 10/10, everything I could imagine from the fanfic and more.
No. The story ends ambiguously with Kazuma gunning for either Eris or Megumin. The party stays together as friends since Kazuma doesn't want to go back home either
mostly because Kazuma can't exactly go back home either. The previous Demon King who was also a dude from Japan explained as much when he defeated the last Demon King..
Eris just teases Kazuma about him liking her and stuff while Megumin is pretty close to Kazuma as he already confessed his feelings to her by this point and she said she wanted to see where things would go from that point.
In the WN, Kazuma defeats the Demon King by doing an Explosion together with Megumin.
If that isn't a declaration of love for her, I don't know what is.
Where the fuck did you even get this idea. Either you can't read moon or you're bullshitting
>Kazuma and Megumin shour EXPLOSION together at the end
>megumin will never shout Explosion! when you cum inside her
Does anyone else get really sad but also happy when they hear the ED? I'm also pretty partial to Rie's verison
You guys are the reason why /a/ is dying. Megumin shouldn't be associated with those degenerates
I feel like a fag for just finding out about this show and immediately writing it off because of the premise.
This is wonderful. This is the zero-to-hero story I've always wanted out of this premise, which everyone else has been constantly fucking up forever. No asspulls, no super special protagonist plot armor powers, having to work within an existing setting instead of the enitre universe revolving around the MC, it did everything right.
Wait, did they just imply that female adventurers run around /ss/ing boys in the town?
I know it's a dream, I'm pointing out that they were oddly specific about it and Kazuma's reaction implies there might be more to it than that.
Freud would definitely have my back on this one too, since it's not like fetishes appear out of a vacuum.
>What a bundle of joy for their parents. Must be nice to have cute energetic girls as your daughters
that stage lasts till they're 12-13, once they hit teens they turn into monsters who spite their parents, hate their siblings, become obsessed with fashion and other teen boys and are openly embarrassed to even be seen in public near their family. Anime's portrayal of teen girls is perhaps the most unrealistic aspect of anime ever.
I guess I should've said no asspulls thus far. Things feel like they've been set up ahead of time. Like somebody actually thought about things before they started writing.
I'm really not used to that.
>Does anyone else get really sad but also happy when they hear the ED? I'm also pretty partial to Rie's verison
its really a pretty song, and I like how all 3 of the VAs sing the song.
>that stage lasts till they're 12-13, once they hit teens they turn into monsters who spite their parents, hate their siblings, become obsessed with fashion and other teen boys and are openly embarrassed to even be seen in public near their family. Anime's portrayal of teen girls is perhaps the most unrealistic aspect of anime ever.
that's why it's called 3dpd. once the process starts it doesn't stop until they're banging whole locker rooms full of guys, getting their tits peirced and tramp stamps on their backs while claiming the world hates women and men should just shut up and sit down while they live a life without responsibility, rationality or consequences.
I really wish I could live in a world like that. Meet my own Megumin, have friends like that. But here I am in a fucking corporate job draining my life away.
I just want to be a mage
If only that would actually teleport us there. I want to drag a retarded goddess into a fantasy world and meet a loli mage
Why are cute little witches so criminally adorable. Heck cute witches in general. Is it the hat? The robe? Magic? And/or all combination of 3 plus more?
This anime is giving me false hope.
I doubt there would be any wonderful afterlife world waiting for me but I want it so badly.
Every time an episode ends I reflect back on my own life and feel depressed but I also realise it's partly my own fault.
Agh, why can't I just be more lucky, for god's sake.
But it doesn't have to be. It's charming and funny and has a great framework to let the characters play off each other and do interesting things. It's also got a wonderful sense of progression with the characters bettering themselves, which I adore.
I hate every single one of those elements and wrote this anime off because of the synopsis, but I love this show. It's won me over. It reinforces that there aren't bad concepts, just bad executions.
If you hate the other shit web novels that have this exact premise, you should love this because it's taking the piss out of them. That scene when he's picking abilities shows how this is going about it differently. And better.
>tries too hard
You're crazy. I'm shocked this was written in Japan because I'm so used to things that beat you over the head with the blunt end of the joke.
Most of the humor is coming from the characters and situations. It's a little too predictable because you can guess most of the punchlines, but again, that shows how it's not forced, everything's coming together naturally. It deserves a lot of respect for that, and not taking the easy way out.
You just don't like it because you're a stick-in-the-mud and saying it tries too hard sounds more like legitiate critique than "I don't like it."
Like the gag with Kazuma learning Steal from the Thief. I bet everyone called what the punchline was going to be miles in advance because the situation was set up, but they still do something fun with the scenario.
I mean you're even spoiled for choice. This premise has been done to death.
If you want this in serious or edgy flavors, you know where to look. Otherwise you are literally complaining about fun things being fun.
