So Kazuma got his little harem scheme going for him, even if he keeps consistently fucking it up for himself.
Megameme being the main flirt since she's probably the most "normal" of the main girls.
Which is all good, I like them all.
But let's not forgot that Kazuma and Aqua have a bond much deeper than anyone Kazuma could ever get romantically involved with.
>They both depend on each other, and wouldn't function probably without each other.
>They are basically the same person in different genders
>Even if they keep bashing each other, they still love the other person without conditions
>When Kazuma goes to steal Aegis with Chris, the first thing he thinks of is to steal a gem as a present for Aqua, because he remembers she collects odd rocks
>When Aqua hosts a festival for herself, the first stall she puts up is a japanese fish scooping pond to remind Kazuma of home
best girl thread
Are there better bros in anime?
>Are there better bros in anime?
There probably are, but Aqua and Kazuma are pretty fucking cool together. They carry the show
I like how whenever we get a point of view from Aqua it does pretty much mirror Kazama thought process of her.
"That foolish child needs my help as he can't do anything without me" (Something along those lines.
wheres Kazama's "wait did he just say he would never ever kill only humans humans........"Fuck I better help Aqua as she is a usless goddess"
True, neither Aqua nor Kazuma chases the other. Though Kazuma does several times notice that her beauty is nearly unmatched.
But that's what makes their relationship. None of them see the other as potential romantic partner, but they are both dependant and love each other, if not in any romantic ways.
I think the most probable way they would go further with each other is if Kazama, Megumin and Darkness were all more open with each other and married. This would prompt Aqua to say " Why I'm I the only one left out? Marry me too dammit!
But Aqua doesn't give a shit about either sex nor romance. She'd only do it because she felt left out.
She never displays even the slightest hints of jealousy towards his relationships, and sexual matters doesn't bother her one bit.
>“Nah, let me ask you, can you see really clearly in the dark?”
>Hearing my question, Aqua said with an ‘obviously’ expression.
>“My vision now is no different in broad daylight. What is it?”
>“So when we were sleeping in the stables together, you saw everything?”
>“I didn’t see anything. Because when I hear the sound of fap fap fap, your back was facing me.”
>“… Thank you for your mercy Aqua-sama.”
It's not a summary the latest LN volume was fan translated in the summer. Megumin confesses her love for Kazuma after she kills the woman who taught her how to use Explosion and Kazuma recopirates. Then they awkwardly hug each other in Kazuma's bed for a while. At the end Kazuma says that he guesses Megumin and him are in a relationship now.
She won it in the 5th when her own mother practically set her up for drugrape, and took out her father and Darkness.
They keep interchanging with each other like this throghout the series.
Even if they aren't always on the same wavelenght, they still think of each other and basically make the same decisions based off different reasons.
Friendly reminder that every single Konosuba is build for bullying.
Every single one except succubi.
Succubus is NOT for bullying.
Succubi is for protection against jealous party members.
There are some things which most be protected at all costs.
I have a feeling that if we ever get to this point in the anime a lot of people are gonna be mad the status quo wasn't kept.
Megumin is for DEDICATED bullying. As is everyone else. Except succubus
Chuunis are for bully. Their very nature is to be bullied. Especially arrogant ones with inflated egos.
>not bullying dopey eyes chuuni brats
wew anon.. Just.. wew.
Excactly. Besides he will never stop thinking that Darkness is the pinnacle of sex, and he will never stop thinking Eris is "main girl".
I think the Megumin flirt is mainly just fanpleasing, and he'll drop it soon enough. Don't think Konosuba could continue being what it is if Kazuma actually got in a relationship with anyone.
It's a comedy above all else. I think they might be shooting themselves in the foot by trying to fanplease via shipping.
But at least the relationship between Aqua and Kazuma is still carrying it. That and Aquas unfiltered hatred towards based Vanir.
They wouldn't be, no. It's just their friendship transcends normal relationships, and the interactions they get through that is brilliant.
And for all their banter, it's nice to see that they are literally always thinking about each other.
Absolutely. They'll make something up, which will most likely be hilarious, that'll make Megumin call it quits and reset the relationship.
Same as when Darkness asked him to fuck
Megameme is easily the first loli I've actually considered waifuing. She is just too
As for the LNs, does the story actually have its serious moments, perhaps even start to chase after the demon lord. Or is it still 99% comedy and still in that starting town.
>does the story actually have its serious moments
it does, every now and then. But again, it's not a serious story, supposed to leave you in suspence. Most of it is just comedy, and quite good comedy. But yeah, they do have some actual serious and feel moments as well
The only "serious" parts in the recent volumes is Megumin getting depressed because she killed the woman who showed her the explosion spell. She's sad for a while after that but after the aforementioned shit with Kazuma she moves on but she's still a little sad.
If Kazuma wasn't a hikki neet, and had asked her to fuck, I don't think she would've mind. Aqua doesn't seem bothered by sex. Think it's because she's a god and it's not really an important factor to her, but I think she would've indulged.
Even when she's naked and being bullied, she doesn't care about the sexual aspects of the situation.
She only abuses it when she can shame Kazuma into things.
>when Aqua is trying to purify the lake to save the Axis cult, and Hans advances on her
>All her friends run away, but she stays, having her hand literally almost burnt off, terrifyed and crying, refusing to leave
>Kazuma is the first one to realize and run back to her
It was a good scene.
I won't deny it being a damn good comedy series, but I feel like that setting requires there to be some actual heavy stuff happening at various points so that the funny bits don't start losing their edge.
Does what's-his-face show up fairly often? The one that took Aqua's offer but got that sword? Hoping he does only for Kazuma to fuck him over again. Shit was pottery.
Mate, Kazuma fucking annihilates him a few times after that. He pops up every now and then when he has built up his self esteem, only to get utterly crushed over and over.
>Best MC doesn't give a shit
I still think Kazuma is hung up on his childhood friend.
And the novel keeps mentioning Kazuma avoiding the topic of his past trauma that made him become a NEET in the first place.
For example, Eris promised the talking armor she would find a girl to wear him.
And Darkness and Megumin have been pressing Kazuma for answers about his past and origins more often lately.
If Kazuma's childhood friend did NTR Kazuma.
Would it be possible that she somehow accidentally dies while attending Kazuma's funeral?
Aqua also crushes his soul without blinking.
>A-Aqua sama.. I got you this ring. It may not be much but I felt like giving it to you
>WHERE DID IT GO??!
>I don't know, but thanks for the prop
I understand your though process, but I think it might be a little far fetched for Konosuba. Personally, I can't see it happening. But yeah, there are a few references to the NTR childhood friend, but I think it's more to cement Kazuma's backstory as a NEET, seeing how he is literally Fantasy Australia Hugh Heffner now.
>So Kazuma, what were you like in your old nation
>Hmm.. Well. I defended my friends from hoards of monsters. I was known as The One That Doesn't Sleep. I was quite famous in my guild
>Wow, you were a big deal!
>Guess you could say
>Can I ask you something about online gaming?
>Please don't Aqua-sama
>Okay.. Goodnight Kazuma :^)
>.... Goodnight Aqua
Best relationship. She could have cockblocked him instantly but didn't. Girl wingman is best wingman
So I've been reading the LNs now that I have the time.
Is the second season going to adapt books 3 and 4? If so, I'm not sure if the cliffhanger for book four would work as the cour ending.
but he goes over this at one point.
He's considering telling them that he is actually from another world/dimension, but he goes
>"nah they'll probably just treat me like when Aqua says shes a goddess"
I think that actually might be a valid point of their relationship.
Like how Darkness prayed for a friend and Eris came to her.
Kazuma may have wanted a sister hard enough that their fates somehow alligned or one of Aquas superiors made it happen. His death was rather peculior, even for him
I know what you mean. Their relationship is stronger than they have with anyone else, and it transcendes any romantic or sexual desire.
Plus their banter is sibling tier
The situation is that he's aware that both Darkness and Megumin like him that way, but Megumin is currently more honest while Darkness is still in tsun noble mode. Aqua is still the one with the best relationship with him, true comrades.
>>When Aqua hosts a festival for herself, the first stall she puts up is a japanese fish scooping pond to remind Kazuma of home
Also, she spent all her savings that she was going to use on Emperor Zell, and the first thing she wants to do is try to make Kazuma enjoy it. They do some nice gestures towards each other.
They also have moments where they threaten other people with each other, like Kazum will threaten Vanir with Aqua, or Aqua will threaten whoever she ows money to with Kazuma. They have each others back
>There are people in this thread that can not only appreciate Aqua for her banter, but have also caught up on the latest volumes
I couldn't even find people that did just one while the show aired. I'm so happy right now.
He kind of already did.
>Confessed the other night
>Kazuma brings up that he's going to the succubus dream brothel
>Asks what kind of girl he likes (or prefers)
>He replies, "A long-haired, big-breasted onee-san that will spoil me."
She's confused that he didn't answer, "A girl like you" or anything similar
That's the thing, it is stressed so many times that a girl like Darkness is his ideal sexual fantasy. He likes Megumin because she's not as odd as the other ones, but that's really it.
Even in the beauty contest, him and Aegis jizz themselves over the succubi and Darkness, and he vaguely thinks to himself
>"Oh, I shouldve asked Megumin perhaps. Oh well
>“Uh, Lady Aqua… It’s difficult for me to work if you keep hugging me…”
>Aqua was tightly hugging Wiz from behind as Wiz worked at a small table.
>“You are cooling and comfortable to hug. There are no customers anyway, so it doesn’t matter if you are not in the shop, right? Stay in my room for this summer then.”
>“E-Even if you say so…”
>Although it wasn’t swelteringly hot, the heat wave at this time was still unbearable.
>She had no intention of leaving Wiz’s cool lich body during this period.
What was meant by this?
But Aquas personality is apex, though.
I just marathoned the LN this days and it's pretty clearly since Volume 5 that Megumin won the Kazubowl
Though Kazuma keeps being scumbag and pervert, there is a clear difference in the relations between the other girls and Megumin.
Is only a question of time until they fuck, seriously
Remember when she then spends days trying to bust him out?
Remember when she bullied Eris into bringing him back?
Remember when she spent her savings so they could eat?
Remember when she turned Axel in his favor?
Remember when she preemptively stopped Vanir from going on a rampage?
Remember when she could have told people all his darkest secrets?
So far Megameme has won the Kazuma bowl. Probably just because she was fast, her mother is an actual pimp, and Darkness is being tsun. But as for the story itself, I don't see him getting in a relationship with anyone.
We seem to be heading towards that route, if the development of dynamite is any indicator. But it's too early to say. Megumin has a higher chance now because of her explosive popularity among japanese fans. The editor might change something, but who knows?
I favor Iris. I thought the stuff with the ring was cute.
Meh, but it's just the onee-chan character, it does seems different about here, like he actually cares a lot for her, but nothing romantic. Maybe is foreshadowing another arc or something
Nah, not even close.
I know, the story isn't serious by itself, and likes to troll a lot, so an open final is possible, but somehow i think the author will go for the Meme final
>Megumin has a higher chance now because of her explosive popularity among japanese fans
Nips do love their chuunis.
I never really liked Iris. She seemed like the token imouto, which Kazuma does call her a few times, but still.She doesn't really have that Konosuba personality, I think. Even Eris/Chris is a bit more dynamic, and she's supposed to be the model of modesty.
>same person different genders
I mean sure if Kazuma was a woman he'd be morally bankrupt, completely oblivious and leeching off some retard he fucked with oh wait that last one actually applies.
Why the fuck wouldn't Dorkness let Megumin taste her expensive wine when they were eating crab?
It genuinely pissed me off. She's not asking to get Aqua tier fucked, she just wanted to taste the heated wine with the crab, why is Darkness such a fucking cunt?
And I suppose Kazuma idly thinking about marrying Iris when she grows up isn't romantic? Honestly, Megumin and Iris pretty much confirm he's a closet lolicon.
I'd be fine if Eris won in a better method than it ended like the WN did.
wow there, Eris, easy now
>Honestly, Megumin and Iris pretty much confirm he's a closet lolicon.
that is confirmed throughout the series.
But when he goes to the dream brothel he keeps asking for a Darkness/head succubus type girl, and that place is tax free. If he honestly wanted to fuck a loli, he would do it via them first. Think he likes his titcows tbqh
Darkness is the worst girl. Letting Megumin partake would make Darkness more likeable, and that goes against Darkness' character. She's the wet blanket of the group when she's not being a retarded masochist trying to get everyone killed.
Here's a mild funfact.
In the original webseries, before the LN, when Kazuma defeats the Demon King he chooses to go back to Fantasy Australia, obviously. Here's the twist though; nnot because of Megumin, Darkness, Iris or Eris, but because of Aqua. She stays there, and he chooses to come back to her.
Granted, the webseries was just a bluebrint of ideas, and alot has changed. But, just saying.
Well, as Kazuma said, Darkness is 'tits'. That's all she's good for.
I had the same feeling when they moved into the mansion and the ghost steals Aqua's really expensive wine she had been saving for ages.I don't like Aqua for more than her jokes, but knowing how hard it is for her to save money, seeing her broken over her missing wine somehow made me irrationally angry at spirits for a long time.
I've never seen this show, but fuck.. That face is full of hurt. This is DEEN, right?
How the fuck do they manage to be so shit generally, and then nail such a powerful expression?
I mean "winning" in the middle of a romcom at the height of its popularity
like kuronekois just one big red flag for megumin
its still a comedy though mostly, so expect a really shaky relationship as Kazuma probably doesnt know how to be a good boyfriend
I agree with this. Kazuma will likely have multiple different romances, true to his harem style, but he'll fuck them all up eventually. As has been said by a few others, it is comedy over romance
They spent what little budget they had on making the main characters expressive.
>does it have its serious moments
Yes. They're here and there, I think the closest it's really come to having a long, drawn out serious moment is the next part of the story with Darkness. The resolution to it is pretty amazing, too, with Megumin realizing Kazuma is a most excellent guy when it really matters.
The voice actors carry so hard. The jokes are actually top tier as well, but the voice acting is just amazing. Megumin being the star, even though Im an Aqua fag. But Aqua and Kazuma both catch the spite and malice in their banter so well. It's really a pleasure to hear, even if you dont like the show
Aqua is also best girl irl
Why will she not cosplay a retarted pantsuless goddess?
Rie is a newbie is probably still having lots of fun and is more attached to Megumin more than Sora is to Aqua. To Sora, Aqua might be a fun character, but it's just another job to her.
That is true. There was an interview where the other VAs made fun of Rie for getting so into character doing their recordings. All friendly though. Would like it if anyone has it, didn't save the link when I watched it.
I believe it's the writer, forgot his name. He's drinking buddies with the guy that did Re:Zero. You'll notice that Rie is voicing one of the characters and they do homatages to each other
>Megameme's mother is an actual pimp that doesnt think twice about drugraping her daughter
>Dorkness father see's a guy he likes and senses will take care of his daughter
Are the crimson demons psycopaths?
I just watched the anime for the first time in preparation for the second season the other day, and I must say I truly enjoyed Aqua's character even though I didn't think I was going to like her much. She just had an interesting relationship with Kazuma and a variety of aspects to her personality, definitely more than the other two main girls ever did. Especially Darkness, whose character had exactly one joke attached to it repeated constantly. Megumin was cute but she needs more time.
Maybe it'll be different in season 2, but I'm looking forward to seeing more of those two.
Here is some... Fanfiction.. for you.
That's the thing. The Konosuba fanbase is divided in two; Those who enjoy the show for what it is, and those who watch it to waifu megumin (nips).
Just enjoy it for what it is, and read the novels if you have spare time.
As stated many times before, Aqua and Kazuma are the backbone of the show. Even when they are not together they are still finny. Where as Megumin and Darkness will have to be in their company to be funny.
That was fucking splendid. Even Wiz was afraid and tucked tail. Only Aqua stayed and kept torturing herself while she was terrified.
A very rare, emotional bit.
A bit similuar to the cage scene, only more serious
Except you didn't read them, but at least you are joining the thread.
The best thing about that one is that they included Rookie Succubus. She needs more doujins
>Built for breeding
>Doesn't mind sex
>Center of attention
>Easy to like
Choose your konofu carefully /a/. You only get one pick.
They do pretend to be stronger than they are, even if they have power.
Plus the whole over the top emphasis on coolness through posing, talking like idiots and acting mysterious for no reason.
Also, the Crimson village seem to rank social status according to how they introduce themselves. Hence why Megumin is so well respected and Yunyun is alienized.
They are all literally chuuni incarnate
That's how it works there. They don't really care too much about magical provess since they are all genetically engineered to be elite mages, they only care about how much you can flash that in the face of others.
Megumin does that really well, her sister even better.
Yunyun was always modest, so they all treated her like dirt, despite her being only second to megumin, and objectively more versatile in combat.
DEEN magic. Swing enough times, you'll eventually hit
No, in the beginning he thought she was sex on legs. Then he started to know her, and they developed another bond. Kazuma is well aware that she is gorgeous, he comments on that over and over again. LN6:
>Seeing how Aqua was dealing with the crowd, it wasn't difficult to understand why you would worship her
>She can look and act like a a goddess of beauty
>If only for that damn mouth of hers
And so on. They just transcended the sexual bit after they moved out of the stables.
If the Crimson demons would stop their wierd chuuni culture, couldn't they theoretically take over Australia? I mean 50 of their mages kill 1000 demons in a fire/lightning storm without breaking a sweat.
Even the finest mages in the capital speak of them with awe. Why were they like this, even before they became crimson?
>Especially Darkness, whose character had exactly one joke attached to it repeated constantly.
She gets two more jokes in the LNs, but one of them is about her having the other two so I don't know if that counts
Funny how Female Goku resembles Aqua and she is still the same chuuni character
Megumin is for tender bullying and loving. Also sex.
Isn't this supposed to be an Aqua thread?
Megumin is also for marriage.
Yeah her popularity is what makes me a bit at odds with her sudden victory.
Usually the main heroine wins, but here Megumin wins. As happy as that makes me I have to wonder if the author changed the ending as a result of Megumin's popularity.
If this is the original intention or the result of a sudden brink of inspiration then I'm all for the author's decision but if it turns out Megumin only won because she was popular then I would be very disappointed.
What main heroine? Aqua? If Kazuma suddenly goes "I love Aqua now" that would just be terrible writing.
Also this series isn't over, stop acting like the Megumin end is already set in stone.
I want to fuck
there are only two girls in "harems" that have ever won
and they had to win pretty early
Megumin has much in common with Kuroneko and when comedy trumps the actual romance, its gonna be messy
I mean, in her spin off, Megumin is often characterized to be very similar to Kazuma herself: she's a bit of a social outcast, she's not above cheating and exploiting those close to her to get ahead, and is actually a bit of a tsundere.
Like, Megumin ends up standing up for Yunyun when the latter gets conned out of some money, even though Megumin is always bad mouthing her. Similar to when Kazuma died for the second time, and was initially thankful to leave the world of Konosuba, only to end up crying when he realized he wasn't going to see the girls ever again.
What's her name?
>everyone forgets best girl
this is true best girl right here
> gives nice rewards, then jacks up the costs to make sure they're always in debt
She's the reason the beautiful goddess can't afford nice things. She's part of the establishment.
Alderp is the only reason they were ever in any unmanageable debt.
>lol you saved the townspeople from a perverted dullahan but now you owe me a new rampart
>lol you saved the entire town from a rampaging man-made calamity that has laid waste to entire countries but now you owe me for all the property damages
Aqua does occasionally get herself into debt on her own but it's manageable with a couple dozen giant frog subjugations.
Doesn't really matter in the end.
Aqua is a goddess deserving of many headpats, would worship and cuddle with.
Or the author keeps on changing the standard and Kazuma somehow becomes developed in that regard through numerous comedic hijinks of trial and errors. I mean they are all assholes and not wishy washy characters like in other series.
Well, Megu and Darkness and YunYun were unable to make Kazuma feel better after almost being raped by female orcs.
Only standing next to Aqua and tugging her clothes was Kazuma able to calm down from his encounter with the female orcs.
And Kazuma is still not comfortable enough to talk about his past with Darkness and Megumin.
Big difference with Megu in the web novel was that Megu was 17 years old.
Also, everyone seems to forget about the cat.
The reason why Kazuma takes so well care of the cat is because he knows the cat is special and believes it is gonna become a Cat Girl one girl.
>>When Aqua hosts a festival for herself, the first stall she puts up is a japanese fish scooping pond to remind Kazuma of home
Now that you mentioned it, I guess Vol. 8 had quite a decent Kazuma-Aqua relationship development. Or at least it shows how they do care of each others.
I love these tits
Like I am ever believing this shit again with Kazuma. If you look clearly at Kazuma's inner dialoge you'll see that it's simliar with Darkness and Megumin.
Kazuma: "Have I fallen for this girl without realizing it" and Kazuma himself admitted that he falls for pretty every girl that shows the least amount of interest in him.
Yeah, I aint taking volume 9 seriously after what happend in 7.
Caught a succubus what do?
Kazuma has a record of denying this strongly, he even denied Darkness's feelings for him when she indirectly said that she was in love with him. Same goes for Megumin before vol 9.
Considering Megumin is the most popular girl, they are crazy if they don't adapt vol. 5.
Although eh, I guess they could make Vol. 5 adaptation as some kind of bait for season 3.
Oh man if we can get vol. 6 adapted in the future, I don't mind if we have to wait another year before vol. 5 get its adaptation.
If I remember correctly, in volume 3-4 there is more development with Darkness's relationship with Kazuma then there is with Megumin. Doing volume 5 is probably too much.
I liked that Darkness ''sometimes'' keeps a clear head and acts ''normal'' in some situations, like with that flower girl in volume 5. How she agreed with Kazuma that killing the girl was the right decicison that moving further, thus leaving her would be the smarter idea. While Auqa and Megumin kept acting like idiots. And also when Darkness sacrificed herself in orther to clear Kazuma's name after he bombed a nobels house or something.
So is there a possibility of it being 2cour? Because it it is I might just ejaculate on the spot. Plus, like some anons said earlier, they're in a weird situation for adapting volumes 3-5. Even Slimeboss at the end of volume 5 would be a weird place to end if I remember right.
Wolbach and Cat are the same person with half the soul split into each other which creates instability. Depending on who dies first, the split soul becomes one again with the survivor having their personality become the dominant one. Wolbach died so her soul goes back to the cat and the cat now becomes the dominant personality. However, Wolbach likes baths and the cat who used to hate baths, now likes them, so Wolbach is still inside the cat, in the deepest part of the subconscious, probably.
Megemin being first was just a little out of the blue, it really surprised me. I was pretty set that Darkness was going to be first after volume 7 and since her dad literly gave her to Kazuma.
But Kazuma being Kazuma completely dismissed the thought that Darkness is in love with him or anything.
Kazuma: "Does this person like me?"
Darkness/Megumin: They say something weird.
Kazuma: "What?" "Must be my imagination"
Every fucking time. This really pissed me off when it happend with Darkness again after vol 7.
Eh well Chris is only befriend Lalatina out of pity because that dumb Crusader didn't have any friend at all, now that she has the idiot party to accompany her I guess she can leave her alone and focus more on her real job.
Darkness-Chris-Yunyun is the biggest victim of Deen's fuckery with the char design.
>dat excellent doujin featuring Chris getting fucked over a period of nights
That was really very good. Some top tier Megumin scenes in that doujin as well.
So cute. It also helped that the illustrator definitely up her game from Vol. 7 onward.
Jack pls go back to Fate
that was fucking amazing, Aqua clearly doesnt give a fuck about other people, but the way she just destroy that guy feelings, man that was a great moment
BTW, do you guys think that Aqua doesnt leave Kazuma because she was "brainwashed" as his cheat item to never leave his side?
Wish I had a bigger version of this.
She treat her cultist (and Kazuma and the chicken) as her children.
Aqua-sama is truly benevolent.
Next chapter on the 30th, it probably wouldn't finished before the new season start airing.
I'm not sure where I read it, but I'm pretty sure Aqua didn't even want to leave the world now.
>I'm not sure where I read it, but I'm pretty sure Aqua didn't even want to leave the world now.
I think there were a few times this was shown, like when she agreed with Megumin about wanting to stay together forever and the part with the lie detector where she outright reveals her gratitude to Kazuma
Not to mention Aqua and Kazuma both enjoyed the month of hard labor so much that they completely forgot their circumstances
Just wanted to say Megumeme is a piece of shit. Every other girl is good, Aqua is bro tier and Darkness is wife tier, Chris a cute. Megushit is just a steaming turd though. Why do nips always shit taste?
>Best girl actually won
Its been so long since I've felt such joy
So how much closer are they to defeating the Demon King? In the anime they took out one of his generals but if they keep this same pace it will take fucking forever for the series to reach its climax.
Yeah, Megumin is shit.
I can't people still don't realize this despite her Prequel Spinoff existing showing how much of a jerk Megumin is.
She was willing to ditch YunYun to be attacked by demons as a distraction to escape with her younger sister even though she has been pretending to be YunYun's friend and it took fucking ages before Megumin would call YunYun her friend.
Like Megumin makes a lot of requests to YunYun and YunYun obliges yet when YunYun begs Megumin to spare a Cute Duck that gives a lot of experience points, Megumin just goes ahead and kills the duck in front of YunYun.
No lie, man. Megumin can be pretty heartless and what is more shocking is that her little sister is even more of a monster than Megumin.
She Kill Steals Kazuma's achievements and she was willing to sacrifice Megumin to become the next Demon King.
Megu's family is just all sorts of messed up.
I just don't see Kazuma willing to enter that sort of family as an in-law.
Do any of you Meguminfags think Kazuma would be able to be a NEET in Megumin's family ever again?
Hell no, Megumin's father would probably embezzle Kazuma's money fast.
Megu's impouto would eat all the food before Kazuma gets his hands on it.
Megu's mother would drug Darkness and Aqua everyday and tie them up to encourage Kazuma to fuck Megumin so no more friendly dinners together.
I know Megumin seems mellow now but her family is a baggage all NEETs would stay away from.
They aren't what I could call, proper in laws to be proud of.
the series that continue way after a main couple is made (if that wanst the whole point of the serie from the start) are rare as fuck, even more if they end breaking up.
I have to give oreimu the respect for pulling that one, despise the retarded way they handle the whole ending.
He pursues her as a joke, not in any way serious about it. That's just the sort of person he is, where he tends to tease and harrass the girls he likes. He'll run away at the first sign of interest and get utterly confused.
Hand holding, head pats, hugs, and
marriage and sex in the missionary position for the purpose of reproduction with the lights off.
It rang after Kazuma said he wouldn't give her money
I could see it going either way, but seeing how the bell rang immediately with all the other lies makes me think she was telling the truth
I'd like to see relationships in anime actually progress past the kiss. Its boring when everything builds up to that, and then timeskip 10 years later and they got 2 kids and a house living happily ever after.
>I'm not sure where I read it, but I'm pretty sure Aqua didn't even want to leave the world now
Someone earlier in the thread said that in the early webseries she chose to stay in Australia, and Kazuma came back to her.
Konosuba is a frustrating series because waifufags have decided to cling onto it very, very tightly and it's hard to admit you genuinely love the series when you have Megumi Mondays and nonstop arguing over who's the cutest. It's also doubly frustrating when you pick a bestgirl but can't admit it because it'll just fan the flames of the waifu wars. I wish we could go back to the days when it was pre episode 6.
Dust implies it in the novels.
Besides ever male in Axel visits the dreambrothel and she would be an obvious pick at least once
It's a part regarding the Hero, Mitsurugi. He holds Kazuma in contempt for removing the Goddess from heaven and making her sleep in a stable next to horseshit.
Aqua simply states that she's actually had a lot of fun on the surface world, more than she'd have expected, and she says that it's fine. However, that doesn't stop her from constantly reminding Kazuma that if he doesn't personally defeat the demon king, she can't ever return.
>pre episode 6
Try back when we were still waiting for Sky to translate volumes for us. But yeah, I know what you mean. I just want to talk about the world of Konosuba, but everyone else is mostly arguing that Megumin already won just because she confessed first.
Kazuma knows she is a goddess, only that her usual personality doesnt fit his image of a goddess, when she does something that fit her title of a goddess is that he notices it, in the sense
>So you are finally acting like the goddess you are suppose to be
I hope we'll get more of Dust and his mates hanging out with Kazuma. They're not wholly relevant to the series, so it makes sense that most of those scenes were cut, but it's nice to see Kazuma actually with some male mates hanging out. Plus, I just think it'd make that one scene during Kazuma's trial where he says Dust isn't his friend that much funnier if we actually see them together a lot.
Seeing how the gods are sending earth people to defeat the demon king since he is too dangerous that nobody wants to reincarnate in that world, how people dont celebrate birthdays becuase they dont expect you to live that much, and the casual deadly monster everywhere, man that world is hell. Also remember the destroyer was going around for centuries it seems, they basically stopped a force of nature at that point from killing more people.
It didn't seem like a true requited confession. It felt hollow to me.
Kazuma seemed to have accepted simply because she was the first to confess. Megumin gave reasons why she loved him, while all he really squeaked out was a
“…Um, well, like…explosion magic and such…?”
He has to tell the crew he's sleeping over at a friend's place, while staying at a cheap inn where he won't be bothered.
Darkness knows that as lewd as Kazuma is, he will back out like a coward at the last second.
Before Darkness got married, she offered him her virginity. He got on top of her and placed his hand on her stomach before saying her abs were rock hard, breaking the mood completely.
He's using the dreambrothel so much that the succubi refer to him either on first name or "regular-san".
he goes drinking with 3 of them because they want to thank him all the money and lifeforce he has spent on them
So yeah, he indulges a few times :^)
>go to a store so often the clerks know you
No, pls, I don't want this
He is just best MC, he's a fucking rockstar.
Like back when Megumom sleeps megumin and Kazuma is genuinely considering drugraping her.
Even Aqua calls him Scumzuma, but I think that was because she wanted something off him, not because she really cared.
Dream, easily. You could get every single kink and fetish done. Also 3Ds a shit
>It didn't seem like a true requited confession. It felt hollow to me.
To be fair, knowing Kazuma, I doubt he's exactly an expert in putting his actual feelings into words. Or even being aware of them in the first place.
Remember when he was surprised to find himself crying after being killed by the Winter Shogun?
Yes, he got traumatized by his childhood friend going out with a delinquent so hard that he pretty much gave up on having a normal life and romance. Even in fantasy Australia he has trouble with relationships.
Same anon here.
Building off this, I believe at several points, Kazuma is accused of being a Tsundere or having qualities we would associate with a tsundere, and that's really not too far off with how Kazuma is.
I do agree that Kazuma doesn't seem like the type to express his feelings well, but he didn't seem to take Megumin's confession to heart. It was more of a, "Okay, I guess I'll go out with you..." kind of thing in my opinion. The fact that it happened so early in the story also raises eyebrows. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be an actual harem.
I suppose. He is in general just bad at controlling or recognizing emotions. Much like Aqua, though she is pretty decent at faking tears to get what she want
Well, I believe in the same chapter, Kazuma tries to convince the reader that his heart racing isn't because he's just horny af for the girl in front of him, but rather because he genuinely has feelings for her. But once again, it's Kazuma. So, ya know.
Also, are we really that early in the story? At this point, 6 out of the 8 Demon Generals have been defeated or befriended. Hell, if Wiz and Vanir stopped supporting the barrier, Aqua could break it, and the group could face the Demon King right then and there.
Feels like we're just halfway through the story, which feels early for a couple hook-up. Like I said earlier it could happen, but it feels pretty lame and non-melodramatic like Asuna x Kirito.
Vanir already stopped supporting the barrier since they killed him
more thanonce already. I don't know why/if Wiz is still maintaining it, maybe if she drops it the demon king will notice and send a team to fuck up the store he set her up with since she isn't paying for the protection.
I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with a couple getting together prior to the third act.
Like, of all the poor decisions a show like Zero no Tsukaima made, it having the leads ready to jump on each other by the end of Season 2 was not one of them.
I also just have faith in Konosuba's writing. Granted, it HAS a felt more and more like wishful fillment as the series has gone on, especially when you got a pure Imouto character after the MC's schlong.
>Kazuma walks into the guild and sees Dust for the first time being 100% serious and brooding while he sharpens a sword
>To kill cicadas because they would keep him awake, not enabling him to make use of the dreambrothel.
I audibly laughed at this.
Better to lowball it at 2 than risk failure with 3, although I'm sure they could try it for laughs
>oh we couldn't break the barrier after all
>too bad let's go home
Aqua's stats are stagnant so you can't count on her getting stronger. If Wiz is unable to drop her barrier without being killed they need to defeat one more General before sequence breaking.
I honestly can't remember. Then again, as Eris is the Goddess of luck or fortune or whatever, I wouldnt be surprised if it turned out that Kazuma's nearly maxed out luck was the result of him being blessed by her or something.
I was happy when I found out that this scene was added into the light novel. Megumin's confession was something else in the web novel and having most of it appear in the LN was great.
It won't stay boring for long if the author decides to add in more elements from the web novel. It should go without saying that major spoilers for the web novel ahead.
Not too long after Megumin confesses to Kazuma, Darkness does the same. Knowing full well that telling him her feelings would destroy the status quo, Darkness can't help herself after finding out that Kazuma really does care for Megumin.
That girl is a read crowd pleaser.
