Why does everyone shit on Aqua when is by far the most powerful character so far shown?
I mean for fucks sake she can summon biblical floods and revive the dead.
She could probably solo the demon king.
Is it because she's retarded?
Her power has nothing to do with it, She just has annoying gimmicks that get tiresome really fast.
Sometime they're funny, Majority of the time they aren't.
Though cute she comes off as snobbish and bratty. Her constant crying is attractive and her being a selfish little bitch is probably the worst part about it. I can deal with being useless in combat if you have other abilities (purification and barrier destruction) but if your only ability is party tricks then you are a burden.
Compared to the other girls her looks aren't that great either desu.
> the entire town is in danger
> her first instinct is to gtfo
Need I say more?
I'm kidding, I like baka-sama
You are not worthy.
>Doesn't do anything for my penis
With dat ass? Really?
She's the equivalent of unskilled kids that threw their single mother's mastercard at the game's cash shop to buy the most broken everything but still suck because they're stupid and bad.
People need to realize that despite Aqua's flaws, she's not that bad. She will laugh at you, try to wring out as much money as possible, and is generally a greedy dumb fuck, but she's still a loyal friend, actually a very trustworthy person, and has the power to subvert the natural laws of the world for you. She's not the greatest person, but I would definitely say she's a great friend.
Bitchy whining and crying is one of those few things where 2D is just as bad as 3D. Megumin is much younger than Aqua, yet she's far less high maintenance and whiny.
I actually like her as a character. You can't deny she's a major driving part of the show. She is endearing in her own way.
For one small moment in ep 10. I thought she was cool even if she made this face. Funny, but cool in her own way when that happened.
She is more useful and she's hot, but Megumin is the mascot. That's like Ash ditching Pikachu.
She is the worst one by far no contest.
Combat wise she is useless. How useful will that be against frogs or anything that can attack you?
I meant to say unattractive but hey keep projecting.
Most graceful goddess
If she got her divine status back right now, she would throw Kazuma's ass under the bus for not showing the proper respects.
I laughed pretty hard when she tried to bust Kazuma out of jail.
>I don't know why everyone thought Megumin made those explosions
>Mr Guard please let me give this ladder to Kazuma. He really needs it.
I can't hate anyone that funny. Would drink with and tease.
Not every party member is suited for pure combat. She's a supportive member and barrier breaking, resurrection, healing, purification, undoing curses and providing mana etc are all useful things in the adventure. She can also summon tsunamis from what we've seen so far, if you need something destructive.
All of them are goddamn stupid in their own way. But never did I see that they aren't loyal to each other.
Plus, they're funny.
Kazuma's godly luck is negated by the 3, yes.
Does she have a henshin scene or did they design her as a magical girl for no reason?
Nah she wouldn't. Aqua is actually very benevolent. Yes she'll laugh at other people's misfortune, but at the same time, she doesn't abandon them. She constantly forgets that she wants to go back to heaven too for that matter and is actually having more fun adventuring with Kazuma than her old job. She and Kazuma actually share that as a similarity, where they were both pretty much hikkomori and lazy bums before the new adventure, and despite all the hardships, are enjoying their current life.
But I love Aqua!
She acts annoying and bratty and snobby, but it just comes off as adorable to me. I would love to have her around, even with some of the trouble she causes.
Not to mention, I guarantee she would "service" Kazuma if he just asked.
So what kind of party would you guys like anyway?
A normal party like Mitsurugi's, where women partymates fawn over you.
Or like Kazuma's, where everything is fucked up with girls making work hard for you.
I have a bully fetish too, but I more so like to see people scared, angry, and confused. I don't mind tears as long as they're the product of being terrified. Otherwise it's just annoying.
Kazuma's party in the end is the better party. The hardship they share with each other is true bonding, plus the risks they have to take to get anywhere is higher profit. It's more enjoyable being with the idiots than being an idol.
I want to fill her butt with my semen.
She's not tsundere, she's smugdere who gets her ass handed to her when she goes too far but also has a dere side.
Well she isn't a love interest so I don't expect romantic stuff
If anything, she reminds me of umaru a bit too much.
But here is the thing. He genuinely seems like a slightly comedic version of your usual fairy tale prince. He is good looking, and seems to by your typical do-gooder type hero. He should be swimming in bitches. But he really only has two mediocre girls. Fuck, if the average /a/non was given powers and went around saving towns, he could probably build a better harem in a matter of days.
Not with a god tier item he wouldnt.
>i have a top tier spear and only 10 people on the planet can beat me
I doubt any of those 10 people will cone for you unless you kill their wife or something.
i seriously doubt they would stand back and let things like how kazuma was arrested for his coincidental destruction of a noble's estate (even if it saved an entire town in the process), especially if they had a godly cheat item.
Hell, even i wouldn't take that shit for doing what i thought was right, ESPECIALLY if i had some overpowered super item.
This. Aqua's childish but she takes her goddess job seriously.
Her seiyuu is good with that
Why do all the goddesses try to send souls to a universe they didn't come from?
I don't see a problem with both.
Because according to the rules everyone gets 1 (one) resurrection, and his was wasted on coming to F-Straya.
She was willing to accomodate him and give him a new, peaceful live in Japan, that's not really tempting.
At least she doesn't guide her down the path of alcoholism
Why doesn't Kazuma take any romantic or sexual interest in his party members?
Were there no strings attached, he'd probably have buried himself in all 3 long ago., Unfortunately, the strings attached are pretty dire so it's easy to maintain self-control.
C'mon, this is /a/, the average denizen
has at least 1 of the 3 of those as fetishes
And honestly, I'd settle for mentally retarded
as long as they don't have potato face
The only one that's consistently loyal is Darkness, and not for good reasons. They're dysfunctional as fuck and it's great. Aqua tries to keep her earnings to herself on the cabbages and wants to abandon the party when the Destroyer is about to blow, Megumin plays dead at the Winter Shogun and immediately tries to leave Kazuma when law enforcement comes knocking, and Kazuma wants to settle down and abandon Aqua's quest as soon as he gets money. They point this out at the crab party, everyone's looking out for number 1.
They're never going to abandon one another due to circumstances, but they sure as hell want to. A lot.
Since they're in his party, he can't simply anal then dump. Unless he wants to live a living hell, he'd have to actually get in a relationship with one of them, and none of them are suitable: Darkness is NTR-bait, Megumin is a child and Aqua is literally retarded.
I know Megumin is 14 but how old is Kazuma? And Aqua? Is she the typical thousand year old goddess?
Darkness is pretty noble, though. I'd definitely let her princess carry me to bed and then
not-so-gently dominate her.
So all of this could have been avoided if Kazuma didn't sell off this guy's sword?
Getting off is a noble endeavor, anon.
What are you looking forward to in S2? I really want to see Lalatina's marriage interview
despite Darkness being ntr bait, most things arent horny in that world
all male orcs are dead and female orcs can only breed more female orcs
most monster are dead, and people dont wanna deal with the trouble of dealing with a noble like Darkness when they can just have a nice sexual dream with NO TRABLE
That surprised me. I lowered my expectations even though the show is selling like crazy.
Anyway 10 EP is not enough for this show.
aquas not retarded she just lazy as shit. as a goddess has different priority's from the rest of them.
she could solo the demon king and go back to heaven but wheres the fun in that? right now shes on extended vacation where she can eat and drink as much as she wants. no responsibility's or job. shes willing to help out but doesnt want to completely fuck up the balance of things she only helps out when kazuma asks. party tricks are fun so why not make people lives better.
>She acts annoying and bratty and snobby, but it just comes off as adorable to me
I thought she was cute when she was talking about wanting to be praised and spoiled rotten
There are plenty of ways to get off that are easier and certainly more painful. She has a responsibility and understands that it comes first. She looks at getting off as more of a job perk, if anything.
yeah, she looked real responsible sitting in a chair on her ass, eating potato chips while she sends lame soul after lame soul to Fantasy Straya to solve a problem she herself created.
Yeah, not all seiyuus can make accurate chimp noises
Ai Kayano did a good job too. After all, it's only fair that she play a masochist after playing a sadist.
Initially this is true, but eventually it's just to tease each other.
Megumin doesn't sleep for days after Kazuma is taken by the princess, and they all go they're to get him back. They also make note of the fun they're having together in the later volumes.
okay maybe lazy was wrong word but she is bored as shit with her real goddess job. exactly zero fucks are given when kazamas choosing a item. shes been doing it so long she forgets who she sent to the new world cause theres been too many. now that shes in Australia she gets to play around doing something different.
why? her hair hoop looks dumb
>10000 human years old
How many times do you guys think Aqua has fucked someone? Don't lie to yourself and say none either, I think we all know that it would be pretty easy to trick her into fucking you.
Doesn't say specifically, but she did mention that the passage of time is different in each world. She may actually only be in her late teens or early twenties as time in the god world passes extremely slowly in comparison to others.
>(Not sure what age of majority is there)
It could actually even be 17: From the first chapter:
>She gave off the vibe of a cool beauty at first sight as she looked at me expressionlessly.
>She was a bit taller than I am.
>My height is 165 cm.
>A bit taller than me should be about 170 cm.
>She was wearing solid metal armor all over her body, a beauty with blonde hair and blue eyes.
>Probably a year or two older than me.
Aqua is such a child-like and carefree goddess. It's refreshing to see her get bullied all the time.
Well, this obviously isn't Aqua so I can post it!
Now that I know Kazuma got cucked, I like him a little more. Feel bad for the dude. Only chance for him to reincarnate into his fun dreamworld and he got this terrible place instead. God damn, how does Kazuma have good luck again?
>My first crush was my childhood friend who told me in primary school ‘let’s get married after we grow up’.
>In the summer of middle school, I saw her sitting on the back seat of a delinquent sempai’s bike. I couldn’t describe the feeling that came over me, and I didn’t go to school anymore, spending my time in online games.
Aqua has to be at least 20 or they couldn't show her drinking alcohol on television.
I know most guys here can't read moon, but reading numbers should be fine.
>She's practically asexual.
But she seems to want to do sexual things but can't
Just remembered I translated and typesetted the profiles for volume 2
because megumin and darkness are better waifu material and aqua is a whiny dumb shitstain who fucks everything up. her capacity to fuck up and ruin everything she touches is literally unmatched
>choosing party tricks over other skills
Aqua had enough skill points by level 1 with her maxed stats to buy every single archpriest skill. Party tricks are what she gets with the leftover points since she has nothing better to spend them on.
If I see 7 volumes of fanfic, I will go for it.
>Is it because she's retarded?
And a bitch.
And she'd sell you for money under other circumstances than the MC's.
Best choice is to sick Gil-kun on her, he's anti-deity.
You're better off trying to keep the King of Jobbers amused than trying to survive next to Aqua.
The adventures of Big Boss and assistant-kun when?
No, he's high enough level that he could probably crush Kazuma's skull with a finger
Remember this is RPG land, someone with broken gear from the start will easily have stats to match given enough time to grind.
Gram is a dragon-slaying sword, it doesn't have the ability to fuck what amounts to a city on legs.
>17 years old
>an hour in Heaven is a month in our world
>an hour in Heaven is 720 hours in our world
>Aqua is 12240 years old in our world
No wonder she doesn't take humans seriously.
Aqua would not be annoying or anything in peace time. In fact, she would be a fun person to hang around with.
That said, I don't think I want her to hold the leash of my life(would be fun but real scary).
She is everything we forbid ourselves to be. Serious people probably love her as long she remains a fiction.
She just doesn't care. She's not only dumb in general but she doesn't give a shit about his property.
I keep seeing her as a 3DPD older sister: she blackmails him into giving her money by threatening to reveal his masturbation habits, she calls him a lolicon when she catches him naked with megumin, she laughs at him being chased by giant toads.
Aqua truly is best girl.
The LN reinforces my image of them as siblings:
>“— Hey, who is the one who made this dish!? Tell the head chef that the talk of the town, adventurer Satou Kazuma who subjugated many bounty targets is asking for him!”
>“Tell him that the arch priest Aqua is here too!”
>After striking it rich overnight, Aqua and I had been visiting the restaurants in Axel town in search of delicious food.
>“No, I just wish to thank you and offer my compliments for the delicious meal. After enjoying the dishes in the capital, not many chefs can impress my tongue of god.”
>As the troubled head chef lowered his head in thanks, Aqua wiped the corner of her mouth with a napkin and added:
>“You used grape wine in this stew right? The bitterness is that of a red wine. The brand is… That’s right, a thirty years old Romanee-Continue… Am I wrong?”
>“It is vinegar on sales that was just purchased.”
>“The stew is delicious, but my favourite would be this. This meat is really soft. That’s right, if I have to use an analogy… This is like sneaking into the room of the girl you like, and when you open her cabinet with a pounding heart, it turns out to be a mimic treasure chest monster. That intense, unexpected impact… So, do you get what I mean?”
>“Is that so. Anyway, it is superbly delicious. I, adventurer Satou Kazuma, gives this restaurant three stars.”
>“I will give this restaurant three stars too.”
>“Thank you. I will work hard to achieve four stars next time.”
>“Haha, you have a way with words! The meal is splendid, I will come again… As thanks for the delicious dishes, please keep the change. Thank you for the meal.”
>“Thank you for the meal!”
>“Although you paid the exact amount, I will look forward to your next visit. Thank you for your patronage.”
I've heard the LN version of KonoSuba compared to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (in the sense that every character is a terrible person and that's what makes it great).
There's been plenty of comparisons to that show, yes. They're not really very terrible but they're all deeply flawed.
Also there's a lot of bullying, some of which is unfortunately skipped in the anime. Aqua emotionally bullies Kazuma back just as hard as Kazuma hits or slaps her.
Made me a fan
I didn't know she had such range
It's when Japs go to Paris expecting the romantic city full of beauty and wonder, but they are greeted by rude Frenchmen and gypsy beggars. Apparently this has shocked some Japs so hard that they have keeled over from heart attacks.
It's also not really a thing anymore. During the late 70s/early 80s when it was tough to get information, all they saw were romantic movies about Paris, city of love, etc. They fly over and get told to eat a baguette of dicks and streets covered in shit it's a bit shocking.
More like season four, if they continue pacing it with two volume per season.
>mfw KonoSuba become the next Symphogear
I never realize she's in a show until I look this stuff up after. Surprised me a lot sometimes.
That's what happens when you drag a goddess with you out of spite. Kazuma should have picked a personal power-up.
Assuming the power can't be countered by some chump who steals your sword.
Why didn't Aqua just throw water on top of the self-destructing destroyer?
>tfw playing as Aqua in Hyrule Warriors
How did blowing it up even work? Were they thinking it was like a oil fire where they exhaust the oxygen supply? But I thought the problem was like built-up heat and pressure. So was the plan just to release it all at once by blowing the thing up?
>That's what happens when you drag a goddess with you out of spite. Kazuma should have picked a personal power-up.
I dunno, most people would assume having a GODDESS as a party member would be overkill. It's not Kazuma's fault he didn't know how colossally stupid she was.
And to Aqua's credit. She did revive Kazuma from the dead at least once.
Because she's not waifu material and waifuism is the only thing that matters here.
I personally think she and Kazuma carry this show really hard. This anime won't go anywhere without their shitty behaviors.
>Died to Winter Shogun
Snapped his neck from falling off a tree
Swarmed by Kobold elites since he thought they were trash mobs like gobs
Devoured by the Kowloon Hydra
>all this anons saying these characters are not voiced by the same VA
Seriously clean your ears. I liked her performance in KonoSuba but you should be able to recognize her from Aldnoah (Asseylum Hime) onwards..
The point was that the homogeneity is a legacy from Japan's history of isolationism rather than a result of war.
If war made peoples timid, Europe would just be one big fortress.
Europe has just been one big fireball for the last 500 years.
Because of her terrible character. Being powerful doesn't mean being a good character - she is a Mary Sue, and a bad one at that.
Also, from what I've seen (dropped on ep. 2), nobody shits on her in canon, aside from mc who has good reasons to. She if fucking beloved by the locals.
>The point was that the homogeneity is a legacy from Japan's history of isolationism rather than a result of war.
Actually, technically untrue. The Japanese people were a single tribe called the Yamato, and the first emperor basically wiped out or assimilated every other tribe to become the ruler of the island. Some of these destroyed tribes entered folklore as supernatural monsters, but basically Yamato is Yamato for that reason alone.
Do you actually know what this term means?
Bella from Twilight is a Mary Sue even when pushed the fuck around. Kurokami Medaka is a Mary Sue. Aqua is basically the opposite of a Mary Sue.
>level difference is too high
>level difference limit 10 (or something)
>experience cannot be shared
Otherwise any level 1 character can just boost his level by partying to a fully equipped level 100.
She is pretty much not intrested in it it seems. She teases people for doing it but never shows any intrest doing it herself. She is basically perfectly aware of it which means she either has done a ton of it or researched the topic and just decided no this doesent intrest a goddess. Considering the goddesses seem to be more flawed like the greek gods im going toward her having a wild youth and now just not caring.
It's temporary but she fucking carries the entire team during volume 4, stands in front of a Rookie Killer to bait it into attacking her so she can drain touch it to death and more or less solos a Demon General.
apparently most monsters run away when they feel her getting close
