It... It's MONDAY!? FUCK! HOW DID I SLEEP THROUGH SATURDAY? I'M FUCKED!
>What she said was unusually laudable. In a provoking manner, I replied.
>“Oh, what’s with you? Jealous?”
>But Megumin didn’t get angry like she usually would. Instead, she looked at me straight in the eye and said.
>“Yes, I’m jealous. Since all that has happened, shouldn’t you pay a little more attention to me?”
>“Eh… Ah, right.”
>Without a hint of playfulness in her expression, Megumin replied in a frank manner. Instead, I was the one’s whose face felt hot with a troubled expression.
Chapter 2 scheduled for the 30th.
Fuck off Tojo , no moonrunes allowed or I will put you to a internment camp
By the end of the last volume, Kazuma and Megumin have both confessed their love to each other. Kazuma attempts to convince the reader that he legitimately has feelings for Megumin, and isn't just being swayed by the mood, but who knows for sure. Megumin had climbed into Kazuma's bed again, which is when he confessed, but ultimately he didn't end up doing anything with her. After all that, he wonders if Megumin is his girlfriend now.
You know, I always see people talking about how Aqua has great chemistry with Kazuma since they're both scumbags, but Megumin has plenty of her own scummy tendencies as well.
Hell, in her spin off, she's basically a fantasy-loli version of Kazuma himself. And every since Volume 5 or so, she's become one of the few characters who can put the usually silver-tongued Kazuma on the back foot. As shown in the Vol. 10 Chapter 1 excerpt that was posted.
>Paper due in 40min
>Better post on 4chan
Which loli witch has the strongest explosion spell?
Pretty respectable showing for the series.
>9th best LN
>8th best male character (Kazuma)
>3rd best female character (Megumin)
>4th best illustrator.
Also vol. 10 summary where, damn it.
>“Well but, if you really don’t want to then I’ll think of some other way. If we’re gonna go be bodyguards, then I want everyone to go. It’s a shame that I won’t be able to see Iris, but…”
>Then, Megumin cut me off, and released a short sigh.
>“I’m also bothered by that girl. Just now, I was feeling a bit jealous. That’s all.”
What an understanding wife, only a fool wouldn't want Megumin for themself.
>“Idiot, what I’m wearing are divine treasures you know? It’s an amazing article that can nullify any harmful conditions. There’s no way the poison of a blowfish could have any effect you know?”
Vanir's spinoff is great. It got what's probably the best actual fight in the series.
Megumin's 1st spinoff is pretty decent, the editing is a bit flawed though, I don't know if anyone has edited those yet (and Vol. 8/9 too)
Monday truly is the shittiest day of the week.
Wake me up on wednesday
I made a thread last Wednesday to discuss the new chapter and it died with no replies. Only Megumeme Monday threads have any lasting power.
I agree, I didn't hate book 3 at all. Thought it was fine to give Dorkness some character development.
But I was really fucking puzzled that they decided to do the exact same thing again. Literally why?
To cement Darkness as the worst girl.
I honestly don't care much for Iris. Not because I particularly dislike the archetype, but simply because she just IS the archetype. Which really doesn't fit in the world of Konosuba.
Eh, not sure which archetype you are talking about. She is neither a damsel in distress or typical haughty princess. She is a bit mary sue ish I'll give you that.
A lot of potential for growth though, considering she has Kazuma and Vanir as mentor(ish).
It's been like that volume since vol.3 and on.
And speaking of which, does anyone have any preview for vol. 11? Any idea which girl gonna be the main focus there?
I never really saw Volume 4 as one that tried to ship Kazuma with another member of his party, like Volume 5 and onwards.
Like, sure, they're in the city where the Axis Cult is based, but to me it just felt like another adventure the group went on.
Why did they do Aqua volume when she's already the main character of the show?
Hey hey drown yourself.
The world need more Aqua-sama.
True, I don't mind that though. Aqua-sama and trashzuma's relationship is deeper than mere cheap romance.
>yet another Megumin volume
>darkness runs off to get married again
>kazuma and pals finally have enough and let her go
>darkness is never heard from again
I'd be willing to sacrifice one more volume to get rid of Darkness.
That'd be the 4th arranged marriage arc on the series.
I hope that if we ever get a Darkness spin-off, it'll be another forced marriage. She could turn into a black widow this time
Megumin already got two spinoffs and two main volume dedicated to her.
I mean I get that Megumemefags dominate this fanbase, but this still feel unfair. I mean shit, we get it she's already acting like his wife and shit, but if later on they decided to follow the WN's ending, it just feel I dunno, cheap pandering or something.
Give us Yunyun volume, Wiz volume, or that ghost (Comet or Meteoroid IIRC) in that mansion.
A lot of potentially refreshing storyline. Yet another Megumeme volume feel too commercialized.
Done in the spin off, her character development is done and over.
Guess what will come on the package again if we get another Crimson Demon volume? Also the whole spin-off has her as co-protag.
>ghost on the mansion
Now that's just scraping the bottom of the barrel.
I'd rather have a Dust and Kazuma broing it up volume.
You have not known real fear.
Dust volume would be cool but only if he engaged in no-homo shenanigans with Kazuma instead of getting raped by nobles. That shit wasn't funny.
>I'd rather have a Dust and Kazuma broing it up volume.
Not gonna lie, as much as I like cute anime girls, there's nothing better than a good bromance in these sort of fantasy-adventure series.
Wasn't there also a third dude Kazuma supposedly hung out with? Could have sworn there was another dude besides Dust who came with Kazuma to the Succubus Shop.
I wanted to write his name too, but I also forgot. Sad.
There are 8 I think so let's count through them.
1st, Dullahan(can't remember name anymore)
5th, that trans chimera
Only two left it seems. Aqua might be able to break it by this point.
The WN already ended, though I hope the LN would end more definitively.
And if possible, make Aqua a viable romance candidate. I swear the author is making Aqua a super special secret character whose route are only unlockable after you finish the game.
>make Aqua a viable romance candidate
Why would you like to ruin Aqua? I swear self-insert fags are the fucking worst.
You sound pissed because your intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor self-insert didn't choose the girl you wanted.
>Wait, please wait! With Aqua-sama’s power, you could easily break
through the barrier created by 2 or 3 bosses!
Seems like Aqua can easily break both Vanir and Wiz's barriers no problem. She won't be purged.
Yes he did. Look at the mask. He has more lives than a cat.
I don't know when the WN ended or when the author got her publishing contract, but that open end seems like a cop out to wrap things quick and not be bounded by anything on the LN version.
Isn't the Demon King essentially Kirito?
Like, I hear that the current Demon King was some solo player from Japan who grew so powerful, he beat the previous Demon King by himself. Only to take his place, and start the cycle all over again, because he was too much of an edgy fuck to ever interact with people.
Yeah but it seem the devils have their own hierarchy, like Vanir is a duke of hell and stuff. I'm wondering if the LN would continue after the demon lord is defeated and go fight Vanir's boss or something.
The LN already deviated a bit, hopefully we'll get firmer ending.
Or maybe an omnibus ending?
>Americans "pronouncing" japanese names
>no day of the week for Darkness unless we call it masochist Mondays
I'm the one fag who likes her, dang it.
I'm surprised more people don't.
Darn Aqua for hogging the spotlight.
>I accidentally sent the tsunami to Japan instead of at the Demon King's castle
I like her because she's cute and has a cool armor piece.
And because Lalatina is a nice name too.
I didn't factor in her personality.
When you say it like that, yeah I guess.
She's less of a waifu for me so much as she would be fun to hang around once in a while.
Scenes like the Kazuma Washroom scene do nothing to help my argument, in retrospect.
It's a shame, but it's how it is. She's not bad at all, but the level is just too damn high in Konosuba. She's just a dumb old clichéd "noble girl that wants adventure" with the hard M shtick tacked on, while the rest of the main cast is pretty colorful and original.
Darkness would have been SO much better as a secondary character, overexposure is one of the things that make her annoying in my opinion.
Unfortunately, I think the OVA has the perfect line to describe most of her character.
LN will end the same as WN, the main points are there (wiz still got tons of manarocks for megumin to bust the barriers, megumin confession is the same)
Ln is just expanding stuff
The open ending is also perfect for this kind of story
>just read vol 9
>get to this scene
>this sexual tension
How the fuck can they even act normal around eachother now. Megumin saying everything she loves about Kazuma almost killed me though.
Was it anything like the sexual tension in Amagi?
For context MC and main girl were naked alone in a hotel room on the bed kissing each other after confessing their love but then a sudden phonecall reset everything.
Not nearly as sexual. Just a lot of hugging/head patting while they say what they love about each other until they eventually tell each other about their past where the volume kind of ends right after.
I... I wrote a song for Megumin.
You are my Megumin
My only Megumin
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my Megumin away
I hope she'll like it.
I... I wrote a song for Nicolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky.
I hope he likes it.
Megumin asks Kazuma if he wants to "keep going" or something to that effect, and he basically ends up chickening out, and sends her back to her room.
Granted, Megumin was likely feeling very emotionally vulnerable given the events of the volume's story, so ultimately, it may have been the right call to not just bang her then and there. At least, that's what I think. Wouldn't have kicked her out of the room, though.
I wouldn't say he kicked her out of his room, rather she just kind of up and left after their talking. She wanted to sleep with him when she first came into his room too which made it weird how she left.
Why does Darkness even cringe when he says that? I thought she was supposed to enjoy being degraded.
I'd say you should go ahead and start at the beginning. They're called "light" novels for a reason, so it's not like it's going to take you long to plow through the first two volumes.
Hell, I finished volume 1 in like a couple hours earlier today.
Don't listen to those other two fags. The only thing you'd miss from the earlier chapters is the proper introduction to Wiz, the proper introduction to Yunyun, and a single sidequest involving a dungeon that plays out as an important story element later on. Everything else is essentially verbatum with the LN, so you can just skip past the Destroyer Arc.
In fact, I'd go as far as saying that I think the anime portrays the light novels better than the light novels themselves.
I love the glint in her eyes when she's about to cast an explosion.
>In fact, I'd go as far as saying that I think the anime portrays the light novels better than the light novels themselves.
I'm kind of more inclined to the right leg because I love that kind of stockings. The tricky question is what foot is cuter?
We all know who his endgame is though
>using PDF when there's a superior format called Epub
Aqua go away
Daily reminder that Megumin isn't completely flat chested
This isn't a case of the illustrator taking some creative liberties either. During the Berdia fight, Megumin purposefully pushes her chest against Kazuma's back as a reward for praising her explosion magic, and Kazuma is surprised to find that she actually has breasts.
>apparently shes fated to become the no fun allowed anchor
>have u ever use Epub before?
This is your average epubfag
Needing to leave your computer to be "productive" means you are apestrenght wage slave, soon replaced by a machine. I get paid for making that a reality, without leaving my desk.
>wanting to ruin both Aqua and Kazuma because of a fetish
Why won't self insert fags ever give up
Her breast just aren't well developed.
what does this say?
i'm not a jap and my jap & eng sucks but i'll give it a shot
Kazuma: this time i've decided it, i'm not gonna leaving this castle
Aqua: I also didnt mind if i have to stay
Darkness: you guys, dont you always saying such selfish thing, look at the street... ahh, there's another person?
Megumin: KOMMEKO? why u're in here, u're supposed to be in home!
Kommeko: Our house is suddenly gone
i know my jap and eng sucks
Is that a dealbreaker for you? Do you need pretty pictures to look at in order to read? Do you prefer the pictures to be colored or do you want to be able to color them in yourself?
Light novels have editors, proofreaders, and general quality control. Web novels are something authors shit out on the internet by themselves. And yes, both of them can have pictures.
So if you write really good WNs,you can advance to write LNs,and if you are pretty good at that you can go on and try writing a real book?
Japanes publishing is like a fucking RPG
If you have money you can get any literature published you want. If you don't have money you can write your shitty fanfics online and beg for donations. You can also translate someone else's shitty fanfic into another language and beg for donations that way as well.
I'm glad that this thread is going to die before those Wiz Wednesday scrubs flood in.
Shouldn't we be using real Australia as the assumed time for Fantasy Australia?
Though you should generally assume that the time on 4chan is some American time zone because it's an American website whose servers are in America.
Don't forget Drama CDs, Picture Dramas, and video game tie-ins. You can be sure that any popular anime is going to have at least one video game, and it could be anything from a gacha mobage to an RPG Maker like Konosuba's.
"I thought you told me to pay at attention to you more Megumin?" "Speaking of which you gained weigh didn't you? No more onion duck for you."
Kazuma learns explosion and burns through millions worth of magicite to cast it on the demon lord's face
Gets a wish from heaven and changes Aqua for Eris. Open end with everybody living in the mansion
It's such an open-ended ending that even the WN itself could even open up for a sequel. And the LNs are fleshing out the WN, right? Hope that means we'll get some closure. Or a follow up epilogue of some sorts.
You've been a major source of help, anon. This is rather interesting. Thanks again.
Man, there's a mega link in this very thread with all novels to date, translated.
I know. I'm just interested in making a collection out of this.Thanks for the heads-up though.
If you want to collect just buy japanese raws, support the author while bypassing the american jew weeb mafia
I FORGOT HOW SLOW AND RETARDED THEY ARE. DAMMIT ALL.
The anime ruined her design, but her LN art is really cute.
>Thread made on a Sunday
>People still posting in it on a Tuesday
Not gonna lie, I'm somewhat disappointed that Kazuma's main weapon has become a Katana, when the rest of his get up is European in origin.
Extremely-stylized and romanticized, as is the norm in the sort of JRPGs the world of Konosuba is meant to parody, but European nonetheless.
Maybe. But that'll probably be because Volume 3 is generally considered to be the weakest, and the climatic fight in Volume 4 is nowhere near on the same scale as the Destroyer or even Beldia fight.
>For the sake of fighting against the suspicious person that tricked my cute little sister, I sharpened my katana that I’ve never had to use before, and began to make various other preparations, but—
Trashzuma never even bother using his katana before. That little scum only ever use his girls.
Eh. They need a strong first episode to not disappoint the old viewers and attract new viewers. If they focus all the comedy of vol. 3 on the first episode (all the court and jailbreaking tomfoolery) it would be a nice first episode.
And they could just rush through the rest of the volume, and have Vanir fight in episode three. Vol. 4 is pretty fun, and Vol. 5 with its Megumeme focus would ensure that the season ends in high note.
So yeah, buy the LN from Japan and hope for a third season so we can see Iris and Eris.
