How butthurt are the people not liking this gem?
Quality should be unanimously appreciated.
Wiz Wednesday would have been a better start for a thread
It's not that I don't like Konosuba.
I just think it's fucking ironic /a/ says DanMachi is bad while simultaneously believing Konosuba is AOTY.
Wouldn't call it a parody, but there's enough that's off-kilter about it to make it fresh.

>Once the teleportation magic was cast, the mask on the ground began to gather the dirt under it. A body formed and stood up.
The glorious bastard, I lost it here and rolled around laughing.
I could taste the anger and hate and it was amazing, if it ever happened to me I'd be furious though.
>he forgot Aiz Wallenstein
I hated the first 2-3 eps. I think once Megumi showed up I started to "understand" what was going on.
Now it's a memorable show to me. I like it. I will enjoy a season 2. As long as they stay retarded.
Funifura and Dodonko are high grade crimson demons but Megumin can't be beat.
Considering how difficult it was for Wiz to deal with Vanir and how easily Aqua can take care of both Wiz and Vanir, Aqua really is in her own tier in terms of anti-undead and unholy isn't she?
I'm not saying I think everyone should like Rakugo, but it's easily higher quality than Kono Suba, so why didn't you make this thread about the best DEEN anime in the last ten years or more?
Every kuudere ever, starting with Yuki
Lili is less forgettable among them but here is the actual best girl.
I like the show, but I can understand why some people wouldn't. Bashing people who don't like the show is just as bad as the people that go out of their way to shit on something they don't like.
Majority of hate for this show I have seen so far is bait, people dismissing out it outright for it's premise without seeing it in action or people who expected something other than what they got.
Oh, he didn't rape her, he just felt her flat chest.
There was an Archpriest in Wiz's party. She wasn't able to do shit, couldn't even lift Beldia's curse. Aqua is powerful because she's a goddess.
Literal transgender trying to force their virtue signalling on the mean old bully show.
Actual tumblrs enjoyed the show until the succubus episode where they were annoyed at the blatant fanservice.
There aren't any arch priests to compare Aqua against. But her ability to trivialize grievous wounds and casually resurrect the dead go FAR beyond anything an arch priest should be able to do.
An actual arch priest should be able to support a small group. Aqua can save an entire army.
>there aren't any archpriests to compare
Rosary from Wiz's old party and the Axis cult leader Zesta.
Besides like I said Aqua is a goddess. She could've been any class she wanted
barring anything that required luck or intelligencebut she chose Archpriest because she wanted to heal. She could've become a crusader and god blow everything to pieces if she wanted, but she wanted healing and party tricks instead.
Well that's just like, your opinion, man.
It's stated in the LNs that mortal souls are limited to a single rez because REASONS. Kazuma is well past his limit by now. Rezzing needs a good chunk of the body to work, but we aren't told how much Aqua has an advantage over regular priests here. It's safe to say that Aqua can bring back a FAR more ruined body than the regular arch priest.
Little of column A, little of column B.
Well to be fair, it is supposed to be a parody specifically of the "travel to another world" genre in LNs. To an anime audience it probably just feels like a comedic take on the RPG, more than anything else. But to people who are kind of sick of the overpowered MC landing in a fantasy world, this series was a bit of a breath of fresh air.
Well it's not even that she has water spells. The only actual skills she has are the Archpriest skills (which are massively boosted due to her being a goddess), and the party tricks.
The water abilities is because she is the goddess of water, so she has natural control over water because, as she said, its her familiar.
I recall some complaints about how the show was too "mean spirited". I mean like seriously? Does the concept of banter and slapstick not exist for these people?
I kind of assumed they were mostly Americans because of that.
I mean humor is subjective, so I guess that's a decent enough reason, though I personally strongly disagree with your assessment. Particularly the meme waifu thing, since that's just a shit reason to give for anything really.
But I do have to say that the first season only covered the first two volumes of the series, which is a pretty small amount of content to be honest. Though the repeat jokes were kind of filler honestly, and likely a cost saving measure by DEEN or something.
Cause I haven't seen it yet and there are other people to do this for me! Though, KonoSuba is good too (and a surprise, I guess) and I just discussed with guys that didn't appreciate it, felt the need to make this thread (even if I can't say it's underappreciated, its public reception is quite nice).
It's a succubus. Succubi are sluts. What's the big deal?
The LN plays it more straight, but I still remember complaints about repetition, their reactions, I forget what else. It has some typical Japanese humor but that's what anime is. People that complain about the bullying aren't really people to begin with so they are safe to ignore.
The eyes are part of it, but that's just the sign of their genetic alteration. The name Crimson Demon came from the time they begged their creator for a cool name. He randomly came up with it, and they latch on, because they were all a bunch of chunni weirdos.
Didn't they try to argue that Aqua was actually the smart one because of the sole reason that she didn't show she was dumb at all?
Which I find hilarious because it only took one episode after that one to showcase how fucking wrong they were.
Funny you say that considering we had threads "worshiping" this series years before the anime even aired.
Sorry that your favorite of the season didn't sell as well as this one anon. But that's the Winter Season for you.
>taught them their chuuni ways
Don't blame inventor-kun for that. They were already chuuni. They're the ones who wanted to be genetically engineered in the first place. All inventor-kun did wrong was being an enabler.
The magekiller and mobile fortress destroyer? All he did was doodle a dog(snake?) and squish a spider. The higher ups in the country were the ones that built them. Inventor-kun just wanted to play video games that he invented with his cheat ability.
Tumblr? Yes, they tend to like stuff though it is usually just small communities.
The "tumblr" idiots we make fun of? No, they never have fun and fine problems with everything.
Like that time they complained that there wasn't a female version of the Nintendo character Link. Then Nintendo makes Linkle, and then they complain that it isn't enough because they want the actual character Link to be made female, and to be made no different from Link otherwise. Note that this occurred not long after one of their idols specifically said that mere genderswaps of a character isn't good enough.
Seriously, nothing will make those fucker happy, so there's no point in bothering with them. Though its apparent sites like ANN are actively trying to appeal to them. With mixed results.
/a/ hypes shit all the time only to rip it apart later, or definately has some long finished franchises that still have regular threads
Never tried it myself, but isnt tumblr more for crowdsourcing an angry mob to complain about things?
>Though its apparent sites like ANN are actively trying to appeal to them. With mixed results.
The writers for ANN are from those awful communities, they're just writing what they know.
>they're just writing what they know.
Yeah, and that's what really sucks since there are actually some decent writers on that site. But it gets really overshadowed when the opinions that get the most attention are the ones who come from people who seemingly despise everything about anime that other people enjoy.
>Never tried it myself, but isnt tumblr more for crowdsourcing an angry mob to complain about things?
Eh, not really. You see when people make fun of tumblr, they aren't talking about the whole site. The vast majority of people who use tumblr are mostly chill, and share fanart, fanfics, theories, and shit from what I've seen.
The problem is that the sites attracts (for whatever reason) an extremely vocal minority of really ultra-left wing (though it's more like right wing to everywhere except America) people. Who seemingly just love being a hate mob that attacks people for not sharing their view of the world.
Similar trends can be seen on other sites, it's just that tumblr tends to congregate a fairly large number of them.
>Divorce + Darkness
Pretty self-explanatory, and it's not a meme anon. It's her in character nickname after she gets, you know, divorced.
Nothing exactly wrong with using names utilized by the characters themselves to mock her.
What, who would say such lies!? I bet it's just those Eris cultists who keep messing the place up.
Partially, the world was presumably fucked up to begin with, but once they sent some idiots in to repopulate the world, they ended up making some things worse.
The reason there are some people wearing hoodies and shit, is presumably because some Japanese guy introduced it into the world.
Though so far only a few Japanese people have been explicitly mentioned. Kazuma, Matsuragi, the inventor guy, the original user of Aegis, and
the current Demon King.
I'm watching this with my friend who only understands weeb-level Japanese. A lot of the "non-japanese" humor in this show is just the subbers re-working the script to make Kazuma be more spiteful. They did a better job of it than I could, though, and I support their decision to make a comedy funnier for EOPs.
Well there is no real plot so I don't really get how you can dislike it (though I understand you can dislike the lack of direction).
I liked the character design too, really, even though it's kinda cheap, it was the selling point of it I think. Wouldn't have been the same if it was ultra clean and on-model like SAO.
It's a bit goofy like old 90's comedy anime.
Expecting a plot out of this series was probably your first mistake anon.
There's never been explicit mention that any of the previous ones were, only that the current one is. Usually the Japanese twats kill the Demon King and marry into the royal family, leading to the OP nature of them.
I think the reason why the current one is so infamous, and his story was even made into a story book is because he was kind of an exception. At least that's my guess.
Yeah there's a bunch running around, but not many doing anything notable other than Kazuma and Matsuragi.
Though from the looks of it we might be getting a third one sometime soon, in the form of
Kazuma's childhood friend. But so far no direct confirmation on that, just what appears to be some foreshadowing.
It was average to me, I hate Isekais with a passion, the fact that it was sort of a parody made it bearable, and I really enjoyed my time, but I don't think that anyone should be berated for not liking it.
There were many Japanese in the castle when Kazuma went to the capital. They should all be high level adventurers like Mitsurugi.
I'm surprised katanas weren't introduced into the world earlier as replicas of a cheat item.
So remove the word plot and direction. It felt as if the entirety of the season was a long drawn out intro to a good anime that never took place.
When I'm watching an anime I'm not actively looking for plot. I'm water that absorbs the taste of whatever is dropped and dissolved into me. The series was a hit and miss for me, that's not to say others can't enjoy it more than me obviously.
>but I don't think that anyone should be berated for not liking it.
I don't think many people are berating others for not liking it, I think most of the annoyance is coming from the fact that a lot of people judged it before even bothering to watch it.
There were a bunch of people who saw the premise and thought it was trash without even looking at it. In fact I'm pretty sure a decent amount aren't even aware it is a parody of a genre, only seeing it as another fanservice ridden harem show (even though romance doesn't come into play until 5 volumes in).
Taste is subjective and that's fine. But looking at something with distaste and mocking those who like it without even looking at it yourself is something that can really piss me off personally.
She was the one responsible for that world and who got it to such a terrible state that they had to resort to sending in all the neets. It's her trickery and deception that has allowed her to dodge most of the blame for the mess
>It felt as if the entirety of the season was a long drawn out intro to a good anime that never took place.
But that's literally the entire point anon? Instead of heading out for some grand adventure like every other fucking series in this genre does. Kazuma and his party does the exact opposite, staying in the beginner town because they are a bunch of lazy scumbags.
Most of the excitement comes from the fact that they are actively trying to avoid trouble, and yet either due to his parties stupidity, Aqua's nature as a doom magnet, or some odd coincidences, trouble ends up finding its way towards them.
And my original post might have been a bit misleading. There is a plot, it's just really in the background and you won't really notice it, until you figure out that none of the events in the story are as random as they first appear. Everything that happens is actually quite cleverly interconnected, but this isn't made into a forthright fact. It's not exactly a top tier plot by any means, but it exists.
But again, you're free to have your own opinion. You gave it a fair shot, and that's really all that can be expected of you. Glad to see you at least got a small amount of fun out of it.
Yeah so I understand. I think it also depends on your mood and all, like you said you absorb what is given to you but it's influenced by your prejudice on it and your mood of the moment (I'm the same, I guess a lot of people are like that). Might have been wiser to put it on-hold for an indefinite time to watch it at a better time? Or I don't know I'm not in your head, but it worked for me sometimes.
Like >>143468665 said, I'm mainly complaining about people taking prejudice on some series (like this one), but I also think that some people that don't enjoy it didn't approach the series the right way.
I mean, if you go with honesty, there might be a lot to like in this anime I think (that's true for a lot of things though). I feel like some people are going in some series without willing to like it, that's kinda retarded since it would be good for everyone if they liked it. Not saying you should force yourself but go with an open mind even if that looks shitty at first.
Liking the show =/= Not liking the thread
The fanbase has really turned absolutely cancerous the last couple threads. The ratio of post talking about "I want to do x with y" with other discussion are heavily tilted to the former. Plus the last couple of threads are filled with blogshit and no one on the thread call them out. And let's not forget the cancerous rollshit that happen at least once a week. and again no one bother to call them out for their shit.
Truly, this fanbase has replaced Yahari's as the worst LN fanbase on /a/.
To be fair, this thread is pretty decent though.
But dear Eris, the threads following the OVA subs release are perhaps one of the most shitty threads I've seen for this fanbase.
Oh look, it's "fuck off with this general!"-kun, how have you been? Have you finally figured out that you don't quite understand the term "general" yet? If so, then good for you!
>these threads are worse than the Yahari ones
I'm assuming you've never been to those threads since they are literally just clones of each other and being the epitome of what you would call a circlejerk.
These threads are different because we actually have material to discuss. Not to mention I've seen numerous theories and proper discussion about shit which I assume you're conveniently ignoring with that selective attention of yours.
I actually have to agree with this assessment, the OVA was fun but the threads after it were pretty abysmal. I keep saying we should just stick with the a weekly thread each Wednesday to keep shit like that from happening.
But some idiot will just go ahead and make a Megumin OP for no reason. Not much you can about it.
You fuck literally agree with me:
>I actually have to agree with this assessment, the OVA was fun but the threads after it were pretty abysmal
I wasn't on /a/ at the time, but if I was, I'll tell them to fuck off, but no one did, and you know what that means? That means the fanbase is officially condoning those cancerous behavior.
Check and mate generalfag, your generals are cancerous as fuck. This thread is an exception, not the rule.
Ah, no I didn't agree with you, at all. I agreed with the anon I replied to (obviously), in that those OVA threads (and those threads specifically, obviously), were lacking in the usual quality.
>I wasn't on /a/ at the time, but if I was, I'll tell them to fuck off, but no one did
In other words
>I wasn't using this site at all, but I am somehow an omniscient being who can determine that people aren't using this site the way I want them to!
Yeah, way to make your retarded opinion somehow even more retarded. Congrats anon, I honestly didn't think that was possible.
>Check and mate generalfag, your generals are cancerous as fuck
Good to see you're as obvious as usual general-kun, you should really go back and study for your summer school though. Clearly you're not making as much progress as you think you are.
Megumin is cute though so it's okay.
>were lacking in the usual quality
Stop lying faggot, what quality? If this thread was any indication that your general has any good quality it wouldn't be such an exceptional thing.
The truth is, your usual shit general is filled with retarded shit like "roll x for succubus" and other mindless tirade.
And tell me how's not telling retards like >>143469158 to fuck off is a good thing? You fucks are literally the reason why so many of his kind are now infesting this fanbase. You are blind and your blindness are cancer killing the fanbase.
Okay, then check the archives, show me a single post that says "roll x for shit"? Considering your previous posts, you didn't even bother to check these threads any time recently, so you can stop talking out of your ass.
Seriously, why don't you lay off the keyboard, you can stop considering yourself the glorious culture police of this board. In all honesty, if this thread triggers you so much, then consider avoiding this board all together, considering I see no real difference between this thread and the usual ones you'd see on /a/.
Except yours off course, but that's only because you seem to be an exceptionally autistic individual. And a persistent one at that, considering how obsessed you are with a thread you hate so much. Might want to see a professional for that, or talk to a friend.
Of you happen to have access to either of those of course.
>The truth is, your usual shit general is filled with retarded shit like "roll x for succubus" and other mindless tirade.
Can anyone explain what this anon is on about? I've been in pretty much all of the threads recently, but I don't think I've seen anything like this at all.
Seriously, I think I have a pretty decent memory, but I don't remember any posts like this. If there was can anyone enlighten me.
>"The problem with this is that Aqua doesn't act like an especially stupid person"
Was this writer an actual retard? I mean pretty much everything written was stupid in one way or another, with the interpretations seemingly coming out of their ass, but seriously. If there's one single, objective fact about this series, it's that Aqua is an idiot.
The fact that she took Aqua and Kazuma's relationship badly is also a sign of pure shit. Considering their dynamic is one of the absolute highlights of this series.
He doesn't know what the term general means anon, I think he is really trying hard to fit in so he's overcompensating or something.
You can correct him all you want, but he'll just spout out the word "general" and "cancer" and how you should be doing your duty as a proper member of this site to curb such behavior. Or some other obnoxious shit.
There was quite a few "roll for succubus" posts after that episode aired and it lasted for a bit as the picture for the succubus got expanded. But for awhile now they get shouted down to fuck off.
Autism-kun is just someone mad as fuck that people enjoy something he doesn't.
Ah, so that's why I didn't know what he was talking about. I was busy the week the succubus episode aired, so I never saw those threads.
Well you're on /a/ so you'd probably be able to tell me quite a lot about that.
The usual archive is dead you sack of shits. But, fine I still found some:
Stop lying that you've never read those rollshit crap. Or maybe you're the one that rarely visit these shit generals?
TLnote: Please leave me be to circlejerk in peace.
>Have same images in the OP

So question, were the two former comrades that visited her the two shown in the spin-off, or were they the ones they mentioend before who were in love with each other?
Just confused because I think it was mentioned that some of them died or something?
>4th of May

Oh wow, truly this behavior from literally months ago is a sign of this sickening and cancerous behavior.
>outright said you didn't read these threads

You're really quite the expert at digging yourself deeper eh autism-kun?
Literally none of those have anything to do with generals idiot. Seriously, go to /co/ or /tg/ if you want to see what an actual general looks like. Just using a word like "edition" or "day" doesn't mean shit. And people reply to previous threads all the bloody time, is this your first time on /a/?
Really you're just making yourself out to be an even bigger idiot with every post you make. So keep going, this is going to be a pretty fun thread all things considered.
>>You're really quite the expert at digging yourself deeper eh autism-kun?
I said at the time you goddamn retard. Unlike you, I don't circlejerk, I usually visit only when we had new material.
And evertime, every fucking time I visit, the thread quality always go down and down. Where's the discussion of the latest Vanir chapter? Show me. because there are none, because you generalcancers are more interested in "I want to fuck megumeme xd".
Of course it has you idiot, those are an indication of how shit the threads has been. Normal thread will have people doing that to fuck off, generals don't because you tard don't want to disturb the circlejerk.
>I don't circlejerk
>keeps repeating the same idiotic posts over and over to the point where an anon can immediately tell its you
Yeah, again digging yourself deeper. Oh do you want me to explain that term for you? Since by your usage of "general" I assume you can't understand a more complex one that uses three words instead of two.
>Where's the discussion of the latest Vanir chapter?
Why don't you read the thread, or the previous ones? We already discussed the shit out of the Vanir spin-off. And also parts of volume 9 which isn't even translated at all yet funilly enough.
Which you would know if you weren't avoiding these "cancerous generals", which I recommend you keep doing since it's clear you're not doing yourself any favors.
>Of course it has you idiot, those are an indication of how shit the threads has been. Normal thread will have people doing that to fuck off, generals don't because you tard don't want to disturb the circlejerk.
That isn't the measure in which you determine what is or isn't a general retard.
So if I go to a Tales of Zesteria thread in a few days, and say "fuck off" then that is automatically a general by your logic.
Wow, you're not really good at this intelligence thing are you autism-kun?
>Normal thread will have people doing that to fuck off, generals don't because you tard don't want to disturb the circlejerk.
That doesn't make any any sense? People will tell anybody to fuck off anyways regardless of whether it is a general or not, you get it for Tokyo Ghoul threads, you get it for Bleach threads, you get it for every fucking thread.
Even this thread because of you shitposter, which funnily enough, means this isn't a general by your definition, because there is one retard (you) saying that people should fuck off.
Those are threads last week during the time where the new fanfiction is out. See for yourself the ratio of decent discussion and cancerous circlejerk.
At this point I don't know who you are lying for, are you just trying to trick yourself into believing this shitty fanbase isn't getting more and more cancerous?
>That doesn't make any any sense? People will tell anybody to fuck off anyways regardless of whether it is a general or not
Yeah? Not seeing you telling all those blogshitter/illiterate >>143323581 >>143325715
Too afraid to break the circlejerk?
And I'm not even going to point out the tumblr/SJW baits.
>That isn't the measure in which you determine what is or isn't a general retard.
So you say, but if your indicator of what is and what is not depend until they reach /vg/co/tg tier shittines, something is wrong with you.
What? You gonna wait until it get as bad as generals in those board before you start to complain and remains the fanbase to fuck off? Killyourself, I'm trying to prevent it here.
And look what happen when I took some days off. Those post-OVA threads is all the proof that without someone reminding you generalfag how much a cancers you are being these fanbase will quickly reach /vg/co/tg cancerousness.
>i didn't like the choice for yun yun's va. could also be due in part to the subpar sound/voice direction this episode, not up to the quality of the previous episodes IMO
Looks like we can add "illiterate" to the list of words you don't understand since that is a perfectly serviceable sentence. Lacking proper capitalization, and forgetting a space in Yunyun is hardly a sign of illiteracy.
And pointing out one off posts doesn't give anything you say weight, since those are, by definition, exceptions to the rule. So I guess we can add sweeping generalizations (ironic no?) to the list of your retarded logic.
>What? You gonna wait until it get as bad as generals in those board before you start to complain and remains the fanbase to fuck off? Killyourself, I'm trying to prevent it here.
Self-awareness is a thing you should try out here. Also who the fuck appointed you to that position? Why don't you take your own advice in fuck off, you're a perfect example of someone retardly obsessed with the fact that people aren't doing things you think they should be doing. Go to Tumblr if you want to have that idiotic attitude, no use being cancer here since nobody gives a shit.
>why are you lying
>waahh liar liar liar
You are really taking this way too seriously, there's a good reason why several anons have been calling you autism-kun you know?
I couldn't stand the MC in DanMachi and I couldn't remember a single supporting character. MC is just as entertaining as everyone else in Konosuba. The whole cast is entertaining.
>And pointing out one off posts doesn't give anything you say weight, since those are, by definition, exceptions to the rule
Are you fucking kidding me, can you even read? Do you know what we are talking about? I'm not complaining about the quality of those post since at this point, those kind of shitty quality of post is to be expected. What I'm complaining is the lack of response from the fanbase.
Looks like this fanbase is filled with newfag that doesn't know the meaning of "self-moderation" or perhaps that's just how a shameless generals act: "let the shitpost be, as long as we can keep circlejerking"
>You are really taking this way too seriously
Ahh yes, the normalfag response when their shittieness is pointed out "its just a thread bro! lol who cares about the quality of discussion, let me circlejerk in peace!"
Truly, kill yourself generalfag cancer.
>anon complaining about the quality of these threads
>shits up the thread
Not involved in any of the conversations, but those posts have been made before, and others have responded, and this time I felt like letting them voice their opinions without making it seem like everyone is rushing to defend the series or being patronizing. Some people don't like how Yunyun was presented. I enjoy every moment with her. You are being autistic.
The OVA was tasteless fanservice, devoid of anything that made the show clever, or even watchable. The show itself was fucking great, though.
I'd like it more if it had better girls.
Megumin is okay.
Aqua is acceptable.
Darkness is just stupid.
Thankfully Kazuma is hilarious but this show could still have a better collection of females.
>Oh hey another trapped in a videogame anime
>I bet I can shit all over it and the otakus will love me for it
>What? People like this? What? It's super popular? Oh god how do I damage control this
>I know I need to spin it in such a way that I was being postmodern ironic in my review.
It would have been great if Kazuma stopped bitching about his companions. They really aren't all that bad.
Also some of the humor wasn't very funny, like everything about the dullahan.
OVA needed more Aqua antics. Although I also get bored of excessive fanservice which is what the majority of it was.
>google "Hope Chapman"
>"Jacob" Hope Chapman
Why am I not surprised?
I would have preferred if it wasn't a fanservice OVA but outside of the semen demons dressing up and Darkness being irrelevant, it did a good job of keeping the same humor as usual. There was also a glimpse of Megumin's dark side.
To its credit though; this is one of the better CONTEXTUALIZED extended fanservice sequences I've seen.
More often than not, there is extremely loose character/plot justification for one of these sequences, and in the smaller set of cases where they ARE; they usually follow the format of shy MC sitting back flustered as these things happen because the girls decided to collaborate this one time etc...
Not saying konosuba is the only one to ever do this, HYE is one of the first similar ones that comes to mind for me. But all in all, I think as far as fanservice goes, this did a good job of also kind of being character-oriented comedy and sol as well.
>kyoanifags still this butt-blasted about phantom world
Boring as fuck generic harem anime, made even more generic via "WAT IF LIFE WAS VIDYA!?"
I can't understand this shit. It's like saying that you watch porn for the story, but then the porn itself is also weak ass softcore.
>>143474899 are entitled to your opinion no matter how shitty it may be
Oh my Aqua, this shit is so fucking great:
>“You said the invader was a magician right? Is it a single person?”
>"Yes it is a single person! Even though the general with high magic resistance, Hans-sama, left to intercept the invader at the lobby of the first floor, he was frozen and has become unable to fight. After that, Sylvia-sama, who also has high magic resistance went to intercept the invader, but…”
>The invader was able to defeat the ‘deadly poison slime’ Hans’ with powerful magic?
>With some anticipation, Moi hurried Moi steps.
>“About that, Sylvia-sama was unaffected by the magic, but then for some reason the invader charged forward. When Sylvia-sama’s body was touched, she suddenly collapsed, and has become unable to fight, just like Hans-sama…!”
This start playing in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wzXxTQeq58

Seeing these three interact was so great.
Wiz is really lovable, everybody should love Wiz!

Do people not get satire?
Floppy boobs are funny; everyone is a loser; MC is not a prudish cuck; grinding = work; Megumin is Megumin

This shit was soo good, it was hype as fuck. Fuck, why didn't Wiz win hat popularity poll? We coulda had a fuck awesome Young Wiz/Beginner Lich Wiz spinoff.
From what I can tell, a particular reason why people hate on this show without watching it is because they can't believe that DEEN finally made a good anime for once.
I used to be like that too, but when I finally watched it, I'm glad to be proven wrong.
>If spoilers are right, volume 10 will be a "original" one.
Care to elaborate on that, I have no idea what you mean by original in that sentence.
Wiz was really awesome in that chapter, surprised to hear she was considered a cold person while as an Arch-wizard but turned out to be a softy once she became a Lich.
Also I guess she really downplayed the reason why she hated the Dullahan. Cursing your comrades and making her desperate enough to become a lich would be a pretty good reason not to be fond of him.
Ah shit, I remember that story, that was all kinds of fucked up.
What's worse is that they had the nerve to backpedal and say that they weren't responsible for it at all, and said they still made a valid point and what was important was "opening the way for discussion."
At least when we tell people to commit suicide, we're not being fucking hypocrites about it.
I tried it when episode 1 first came out, but their faces were so fucking ugly, it doesn't even look like a budget thing because I can handle those. it looked like they genuinely got one of those same face artists to do the whole thing, and his sameface is godawful and man-looking. either way, Megumin is cute so I'm watching the BDs
>Also Konosuba is terribly unfunny and uninspired.
>Also I have no sense of humor and I don't know what fun is
The chink site hasn't been updated yet, so I doubt we'll be getting it next week unless they do a bulk upload this weekend or something.
Funny, this post is terribly unfunny and uninspired. It is almost like I have seen it hundreds of times but with minor variations.

I've picked up that from DEEN to watch.
Normally his own money as well.
Except for that time in between Sengoku and Quest
So he's not really a NEET at all
It would explain his infinite power level.
Apparently she was 20 when she became a Lich, I guess due to the low life expectancy of that world people tend to marry younger or something.
You know I always find it funny how the people who are the ones obsessed with maturity tend to be the most immature ones.
Yes it has sex jokes, but that doesn't invalidate all the other forms of humor (which massively outnumber the sex jokes) in the least bit. Which you'd know if you actually bothered to watch the show, which you clearly didn't.
But I guess that is expected from someone who just turned 17 this year apparently.
Your self-insert harem fantasy is shit. You wonder why some people here hate it and it's because it's the same exact generic isekai shit you see everywhere, and yet you people praise it like it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. What's so funny about it? It's just the same type of ecchi humor you see in literally every single fanservice anime ever. Oh and the characters are idiots, except the MC which is a loser asshole otaku because a lot of people on /a/ like this type of character for some reason. Oh it's satire so you can't say anything bad about it? My ass. It's still at its very core a isekai harem show. Also the art is garbage.
>Yes anon I remember when I was 16 and I thought sexual jokes were HILARIOUS.
>Yes, you're right, I don't have a sense of humor. I also have a massive stick up my ass and I'm more pretentious than you could even imagine.
I am not attracted to women, therefore fanservice and waifus aren't enough to trick me into thinking a mediocre series is better than it actually is. You're probably underestimating just how much your dick affects your judgement.
>Your dick controls your sense of humor
I remember when I thought disliking things just to reinforce a sense of superiority made me mature, then I grew up and realized it just made me a pretentious faggot.

All of these statements are wrong. The only one I'll give you is
>the art is garbage.
But even that doesn't matter because it's a comedy, not anything serious.
>imblying Eris isn't a mistranslation of Willis
Parody is different from satire retard, though I don't expect you'd have the intelligence to properly understand that.
Parody emulates the thing it is making fun of for entertainment, so of course it's extremely similar to what its parodying, that's the point.
>It's just the same type of ecchi humor
Barely any, the main form of humor is the from how much the main cast banter with one another. And Darkness' masochism tendencies barely count.
>Also the art is garbage.
Subjective opinion, though I'm sure you're the expert art critic here so you'd truly know what makes great art.
Oh and nice usage of the typical buzzwords, and fallacies, really great job at fitting in. But you're not quite at the age recommended for this site, so I personally recommend other forums. Have you tried out MAL or ANN? They seem to be more your fit.
because you basically said the same thing over and over again and all of it was wrong. You are a pretentious hipster faggot who missed the whole point of the show completely and is too prideful to admit it.
>Great argument Konosuba fag.
Nice insult? I mean calling someone something that obvious isn't really that great of a reply anon. Seriously, you're trying a bit too hard to fit in now.
Remember, when in doubt, CHOKE A BITCH
Considering what you said might as well be a lame copy pasta in terms of quality, really all that anon needed to do was quote it. It is really retarded enough on its own that he doesn't really need to add anything.
Your stupidity shines through well enough.
Careful now, he might just be a closet SAO fan, who'll get triggered.
They should have gave the catgirl a name and a few lines.
>or the tale of how much the demon king cried after the thieving store owner took as she pleased from the treasury, only to open a store in the castle…
>demon king general confirmed as NEETs
In other words every fanbase ever in existence, nice observation skills there anon.
And somehow we got the perfect response to the OP, honestly didn't expect that.
I believe that quality should be unanimously appreciated. Of course the level of subjectivity varies but sometimes it's not that subjective and everyone could like it. If you don't, the problem most likely comes from you and not from the show itself. Like, if you don't wan't to like an isekai to keep your honor unstained or something of a pretentious 17 years old.
(though there are a few simple reasons for which I would allow you to dislike the show, not because it's bad but not for you)
I think what makes this anime decent is that the MC could very well die at any moment and have his life completely ruined again and again.
It's basically suffering porn, but at the same time the MC ends up coming out ahead each time... Of course there's the NEET who probably slober over everything and would go to Gensokyo just to be with their waifu...
This anime is not very different than anything else actually... so it has to be the style, sound direction, and no expectations
If it was clearly bait why did you respond retard? And yeah you're allowed to not like it, but you probably shouldn't sound like a 16 year old when you're trying to explain your distaste for it.
And people who hate people for liking a show and not liking the people who unfairly hate it are, funnily enough, just as pathetic. Who knew?
I don't think you understand what pretentious means. Might want to try retaking that 9th grade English course you clearly failed.
Actually that's more a matter of (your) intention for not liking it rather than not liking it, everybody has his own tastes. Why don't you like it? Do you honestly not like it or are you still in the game of being or not to be a sheep that enjoy isekai-shit from seemingly garbage LN?
First time using pretentious on this thread, but I read the other guy and I mostly agree with him on that matter. Though again it's a matter of intention and I can't be sure you really dislike sex jokes or simply try to be mature.
As someone who watched over 700 shows I can say that these two shows have barely anything in common and that you're a fucking retard. DanMachi is a 5/10 at best whereas Konosuba is one of the best comedies of the past few years and a perfect parody to garbage JUST LIKE DANMACHI.
>This anime is not very different than anything else actually... so it has to be the style, sound direction, and no expectations
I can't really tell what makes this anime different but the feeling I get when watching it is very different from other recent isekai.
>It's a good show because I said it is and if you disagree with me you're pretentious
You argue like a fucking teenager. Just stop. This kind of shit discourages any meaningful discussion whatsoever.
Never watched the show, never will. Don't care to. Nothing you say will convince me otherwise. Simply doesn't appeal to me. Call me a retard all you want but it doesn't really matter. The tone of OP's post just pissed me off is all.
>Never watched the show, never will.
>but I'm going to declare it an isekai harem with a generic MC as if I actually watched it and knew what the fuck I was talking about.
I am the OP, sorry if I offended you. But I can say your logic is flawed. You might enjoy this series, we say it's good, so why not at least try the first ep? It's even for your own good, if you like it, all good! If you don't, who cares, you drop it and move on.
Why do I care... But I feel like a lot of /a/non are missing on shows because of that way of thinking "looks like shit, won't watch it, don't even want to like it". Why don't you want to like it? I appreciate liking shows like KonoSuba, it's refreshing, and I can very well watch more adult shows.
Your way of thinking is just a flawed way of entertaining yourself, or at least I feel like it after a few years of watching anime (and getting bored of "must-watches" praised for their unseenness, originality, ambition, etc. KonoSuba is just a fresh show that does isekai comedy well, don't watch it now but think about it for some other time when you feel like it, don't just discard it like that).
Wanted to add, might be presumptuous of me to talk like if everyone was like me, and I'm like everyone, but that's most likely the case, I'm nothing special. But you could very well not be like me and unable to enjoy things my way, for sure.
Next time, anon, don't swallow.
I don't see what's flawed about it. I'm only willing to try new things if it actually interests me in the first place. For example I could always be a baby-sitter for a day and see what it's like, but I would really really prefer not to. Secondly I already have a massive backlog of anime, manga, and video games and KonoSuba isn't even at the bottom. I generally have an apathy for isekai of any shape or form. Even the ones that were praised and loved by /a/ like Overlord or whatever I just completely ignored. I would rather watch something else.
Do you guys feel "love" in this series? Love and fun.
A lot of ambitious shows like Kaiba feel like they are lovingly created from their artists, but that's too professional (serious production).
KonoSuba feels a bit like love (they love what they do) but also fun (the creators are having fun themselves while doing it, I mean on another level that just liking to animate I guess). Few series feel like that imo. It's a bit like Gintama once upon a time, or Hidamari Sketch, but on a uncommon context for this kind of "love and fun".
I can understand but what I'm talking about is like "a change of pace". Though you could very well do that with anything you're not used to (movies, series, real life...). I mean, even if you don't get it now, maybe you'll get it later (and most likely in time anyway, no need to force things). For me it came with boredom for anime as a whole so I don't know. But KonoSuba is really good I think, that's not just because "I can even enjoy shit now".
I mean, with your reasoning, sadly, some "anime fans" never get to watch Kaiji (big noses lol!) or Madoka (what? magical girl? never) or Cardcaptor Sakura (what? actual magical girl? I'm not a girl) or things that are seemingly not for them.
>Never watched the show, never will.
Then why the fuck are you here? This is a KonoSuba thread.
>The tone of OP's post just pissed me off is all.
Just hide the thread and thats all, idiot.
Fighting for something that you don't know or care is a lost cause.
>I'm only willing to try new things if it actually interests me in the first place.
Then why are you here? Just saying, KonoSuba shouldn't even be at the top of your "must see or care" so leave this thread.
>I would rather watch something else.
Then fuck off and go away.
Seriously, why enter the thread, knowing that is bait about something you don't care to begin with?
>KonoSuba feels a bit like love (they love what they do) but also fun (the creators are having fun themselves while doing it...).
I cant help but imagining both LN writer and illustrator cracking their sides up every chapter they do; and also the VA cast from the anime sounded like they were having legit fun while doing their lines.
This show was nice and comfy and fresh. How can you dislike it? Can't wait for S2.
>never watched the show
Admitting this instantly forfeits any opinion you can have about it. People should know this by now.
Well, the article is talking about translating things that most people haven't been able to try. Having an informed opinion isn't really possible making those sorts of polls simply a popularity contest. The only thing in which someone can have an informed opinion is if they've played the games, which would mean they have nothing to gain from voting in a translation poll or if they really like the company or series the game is from.
There really isn't any excuse to play the assumption game and outright talk crap about something when the person hasn't seen it yet has extremely easy access to it.
Yeah I'm starting to think that too.
That's very interesting when I think about it. I'm more of a KyoAni fan for the way they manage their business (independance), their latent potential (crazy visuals and all-round skilled animators), them forming animators and all the contributing to the "ethics" of the animation industry in Japan (economically and as a craft). Also their technical prowess could only lead the industry to the top.
Though I really don't like their anime of late, the last I honestly enjoyed was Nichijou.
But DEEN just proved me otherwise. That you can do great things with limited means. Though I knew it since I like some cheap but fun shows, but KonoSuba seemed on another level on that matter. Gotta theorize and explain that, it's killing me, I want to understand with words and logic. What did they do so well.
That's quite true.
Ok so LGTSS.

From Hope's review
> The show goes out of its way to say that Aqua herself is really stupid and shallow, even emblazoning her abysmally low intelligence on her RPG-style character sheet and mentioning it multiple times after that. The problem with this is that Aqua doesn't act like an especially stupid person. She just acts like "a girl"...
See, this is called good writing. It takes more skill to portray a person who doesn't think things without them having Disney/Spongebob tier intelligence.
>Aqua doesn't act like an especially stupid person. She just acts like "a girl"...
Kazuma does it. In the anime at least, the Dullahan guy gets some in, and the townspeople too.
>I liked the character design too, really, even though it's kinda cheap, it was the selling point of it I think. Wouldn't have been the same if it was ultra clean and on-model like SAO.
Interesting thing about that, though, when taken side by side in stills they do still fit for the most part. I discovered that when I went to import their portraits into a video game.
I don't understand, if a feminist turns into a man does it mean she also turned into a rapist? How does that work?
She shouldn't be offended by fanservice and objectification any more, she should be enjoying it like the filthy man that she is
Agreed. Makes zero sense.
>My backlog of anime, manga, and video games is way too big to watch this show
Then proceeds to waste time in a thread about the show he doesn't have time for and doesn't care about and proceeds to shit up the thread for those that do care. Bravo.

Their only not-completely-useless writer is Bamboo Dong
yes really. She actually reviewed hentai. E.g. Night Shift Nurses.Still pointless to read any ANN reviews, but she was actually entertaining.
I really liked Konosuba, but I didnt like the ova. Konosuba has fanservice? Of course it has, but its not cringe, its not grisl falling to see girls panties. The fanservice is on the characters itsel. The MC is not a beta virgin that is weird around girls, and this is big props for me, they treat themselfs like friends. And last its very fun
Anime thing. She has panties in all the other versions. There is even a point that Kazuma's steal doesn't work on taking them because she values her random party trick stuff more and loads herself up with them preventing his steal ability from being able to target them.
So assume artsyle choice.
My argument was more to defend the series than to criticize the ova. The succubus episode was more fun toned than porn itself, and he tought that he was on a dream. What I like in konosuba is that they are a group of weird people that are friends, the ova was too much for the porn and too little for the fun
