Am I the only one who can't stand Konosuba? The writer seems to have serious issues with women, the way female characters go from absolute bitches to spinelessly grovelling at the MC's feet, and the way the MC welcomes it. It's just such a pathetic neckbeard fantasy.

Grimgar is the only way it should be done.
Less autistic shit, no harems and more character development.
SAO got the character deaths on point but the MC was too godmode.
Overlord had an interesting story but should have had more action.

I enjoy Overlord, but you can't really argue that it's not extremely similar to being stuck in an MMO. He is in a game world then is mysteriously transported to another world that is identical to the game.

You seriously stopped reading because of what people said on a message board. I've read the entire thing twice and he doesn't become more of an asshole. He's seen humans as nothing more than tools and never goes out of his way to step on them. That's how it's always been.

>>139696247
They were not adventurers, or poor. They also weren't adventuring, they were looting. not to mention that they tried to trick him, making him think his friends might still be alive. So you're wrong four times. Read the LN.
>>
>>139692231
eh I feel .hack is really overrated just because it's older.

I honestly felt .hack is below even SAO. I don't even know honestly how people can like it.
>>
>>139695814
it really isn't. Character levels aren't even known to the inhabitants, there are no restrictions on armor or weapons, besides your personal strength. Many more things are shows that prove it as well.
>>
>>139695814
the world he's taken to is not at all similar to the game world, he was just transported with his guild hall/followers and has access to his abilities.
>>
>>139692231
SAO was better than Danmachi.
>>
>>139697012
Half of the story arcs are just Ainz trying to discover the world's actual rules so he can cheese the fuck out of it.

It may as well be a game.
>>
>>139693439
You're crazy, Konosuba girls are great characters.

To add to that, the NW has entirely new things like Martial Arts and Wild Magic.

I think you need to rethink that train of thought.

>>139697184
A huge number of existing rules come direct from his original game. The world rules may match or differ at times. It's a game crossover at best.
>>
>>139697012
He can't use items not fitting to his class unless he summoned them. The magic has tiers. Martial arts are skills.

I kept tabs on what was popular but I tend to avoid teenager angst ridden anime. Been watching too long to put up with the same shit in varying cycles to ad nauseum. Maybe that's why those weren't on my radar.

Super evil skeleton with demon posse? Fuck yea.

A college aged guy and his bros making the world better using wit, tactics and force of arms? Fuck yea

Some teenage kids in an mmo world with a harem sub theme? Pass.

Can we rate the LN? All that I tried are vastly better in the LN.

>>139692231
I'm glad they transitioned from "stuck in an MMO" to "reincarnated into a fantasy world", hope it eventually leads to proper fantasy settings like Shingeki no Bahamut or Chaos Dragon (even if the later was shit, at least it tried)

I was referring to the natural residents of the world, not the people of AOG. They are from a videogame, after all. It goes in line with this >>139697250. There ARE things that are similar, but that is because of other powerful players that came and used powerful items to fuck with the laws of the world, recreating systems from Yggdrasil.

I think you'd like Konosuba, though maybe not grimgar, I'd say just watch the first episode, as they stay petty consistent to that throughout the series.

>I think you'd like Konosuba,

I think so too from what I've seen on youtube. I just can't stand silly scenarios trying to be super serious while the situations they are in are the complete opposite. Konosuba appears more light hearted which is easier to enjoy and relax with. Grimgar turned me off from the deaths I read about in the threads.

Cute teenage kids that look like they couldn't lift over 20lbs shouldn't be fighting, dying and killing. The dichotomy is too vast to be asking the viewer to suspended their sense of disbelief. All the mmo-equse anime that I did like had adults and a wide range of cast members both in age, appearance and goals.

Go full retard or not at all, at least that's my take on it.

>>139697445
I don't think Konosuba is for anyone who wants power fantasy, MMO rules, or people being effectual. I love it because I generally don't like this genre.
>>
>>139697748
>Cute teenage kids that look like they couldn't lift over 20lbs shouldn't be fighting, dying and killing.
You're a huge sperglord if you didn't realize that several series, including Grimgar and Eva, deal with what would happen if the world is setup to make them anyway.

He tries to be an overlord and cool, but even you should be able to tell he's not. Hes a lonely soul who lost everyone held dear to him, It's an extremely tough subject. I don't know why you think that it's so out of character for him to break out of his stoic evil king act when such a thing is used against him. I just don't want you to turn away from the LN because of misconceptions, it's a very good read.

Papa Bones gave them ample time to back out and he isn't one to kill innocents. If the cast of Heinz Owl Gown was weak, they would have killed them and looted everything in the great womb of nazareth. It sucks that the "good" invaders with hearts of gold died but a lot of people aren't inherently evil by nature.
>>
>>139697973
Grimgar has several teenagers fighting and it examines what would happen in such a case: Glorification of the person holding them alive, in-fighting, false pride, stupid decision, overthinking, and inability to discuss loss and mistakes without tears and bitching. Why did the single death turn you off? It's what you would expect if you send children with swords into battle. It's not a glorification of them, the show is about how they deal with the sudden pressure.

Of course it's just an anime and is rather shallow, but it at least tries to tell a story about people and not how overpowered harem leads collect bitches.
>>
>>139697989
Isn't Grimgar also supposed to be like that? Haven't watched it, mind.
>>
>>139693439
Bait post, but it's still annoying how, if people see a non-antagonist character displaying bad qualities or being shown to be a bad person in some way that doesn't quickly get rectified through character development, they think it's a bad thing, and react like they've reacted with konosuba. These motherfuckers must really like to see the same character arcs again and again.

I honestly can't stand these "fantasy story set inside an MMO" animes.

Why not just make a normal fucking fantasy show.
>>
>>139700576
Because skills are such a great story device. Instead of a training arc or a time skip, MC just spends a day with his lewd skill teacher off screen when he advances.
>>
>>139692231
Only watched SAO (couldn't even finish the second season shit is bad), Log Horizon and Konosuba.

I agree with your rating.
What're the others about? Which are worth watching?
>>
>>139700430
I also think he did, but he didn't? It's in the Nazarick Invasion Arc when talking with the paladin/cleric guy.
>>
Normal fantasy doesn't sell because otaku can't self-insert easily. I'm sure lots of people have played a video game and thought "I wish I had X ability or was Y character".

Video game settings limit you, and true fantasy settings tend to only attract the chuunibyou crowd, but mixing the two allows an author to make their own convenient rules and grabs a larger audience.

Chuu2 stuff can scare off readers if it gets too thick or stuck up its own ass, but explaining magic as a "skill" or "attack" in game terms people can understand more easily erases the stigma slightly.
>>
>>139700672
You mean instead of showing character development, growth and depth we jsut bypass all that to give them a flat powerboost?

Grimgar is Dungeons and Dragons 5e and the MC is a Rogue with the Grapler feat.
>>
>>139700576
Because everything these days is labeled as an MMO or VRMMO.

Danmachi is a proper fantasy world even if it has stats.

(it's the gods that are transported to a game world not the MC lel)

In Grimgar although mention it's like a game its still unclear what kind of game (my bet is some tabletop).

Didn't the gods turn their normal world into a fantasy world because they were bored? Installing blessings, and abilities and titles and such.

In theory they are regular people kidnapped from their own world to fight against the enemies of a real fantasy kindom in a real fantasy world.
Also their so called "skills" are more like martial-art techniques.

Tought there is a fan theory which says they are the actual played characters in fantasy campaign.

Than why is Danmachi on the list?

Fags don't know the difference between fantasy worlds with game mechanics and actual sent into a fantasy game settings.

I think we need to differentiate actual video game mmos from trapped in a fantasy world similar to a video game. .hack and SAO are the only ones that are ACTUALLY video games.

I don't know. Season 2 of Log Horizon was pretty shit. I think I'd rather have another danmachi than season 2 part 2.

maybe the originality and the 10/10 ost?

>Grimgar

is this really what fantasy in anime has come down to? Ignore world-building on purpose, throw in MMO-shit and focus on generic drama without an overarching plot?

>grimgay in front of .hack
>log horizon near the back
>SAO made the list

Alright, you got me, motherfucker. 10/10.

I guess it's all lumped together into RPG fantasy for folks.
With something like Log Horizon, I don't blame them.

On that note, I think it does a pretty good job of showing the characters grow and adapt to their shitty situation. A lot of the post death scenes show Haru acting like the new leader whether he notices or wants to. Buying the tombstone, refusing the gift, and his talks with ghost Manato show that he's come to understand that this world has one rule: Kill or be killed.

I find it hard to rate them above each other as I like them all for different reasons
but if I had to

log horizon = overlord > .hack > danmachi = grimgar = konosuba >>>>>>>>>> sao

but even then, everything besides SAO i rate pretty closely though but for different reasons

I enjoyed the first two SAO LNs

Not perfect, but acceptable taste.

I don't know if I like grimgar that much mainly.
