>distinctively asshole Megumin
Fanfic readers, does she keep this up every time Yunyun is around? Because this episode was amazing.
This was as amazingly badly animated and poorly paced as the first episode. In short, Deen has returned to the classic form we know and love. The real mystery is how Deen managed to make almost a whole season of mostly not shit show the first time.
Nah there's another carnival-like thing that isn't the Eris festival. Kazuma cheats to win Yunyun a prize and then Megumin shows up to bully Yunyun.
I have taken the liberty of using a GURPS supplement book for magic rules in order to make Megumin's explosion spell because I have nothing better to do being a NEET and all.
If I remember correctly, this spell works by condensing mana into a small area, building up energy. Then the mana is released from the area where it escapes very quickly causing a shockwave. The kinetic energy of the mana particles is then turned into fire as well as enhanced speed and mass for better damage.
>Greater Create Energy, Greater Transform Energy, 16d cr ex, 8d burn ex, 300 yd range
>(6 + 8 + 70 + 38 + 13) × 5 = 675 energy
The effect of this spell causes 50d crushing/explosion and 16d burning/explosion damage. The explosion from the crushing damage will affect a 64 yd radius and the burning damage a 32 yd radius. It can be cast up to 300 yd away.
Uses the Path of Energy skill.
That's the spell, but let's take a look at the requirements to cast it.
Most seasoned casters have at least Magery 3. We will be generous and assume Megumin who studied magic, along with her crimson demon magical ability, has Magery 5.
Her mana reserve is 15.
Megumin *always* puts everything she can into her spells to the point of using her own physical energy. Sometimes she becomes totally exhausted and even unconscious.
We assume she has an average FP of 10 for 3 extra energy, and an HP of 10 for 5 energy.
>675 - 23 = 652
It takes Megumin about 14 seconds to cast Explosion, rounded to 15 for Ritual Path Magic rules. A -1 to skill roll by the end.
This is three attempts and therefore needs an average of 218 energy gathered per attempt.
>The average roll of a d6 is three, or 12 for 3d6. We need a score of 219 higher than 12
>219 + 12 = 231.
>Megumin has 231 levels (or 916 points) in her Path of Energy skill.
In GURPS terms, Megumin either has a very generous GM, or is hiding the fact that she's about 350 years old.
You don't need to go that far
The fact of the matter is that Explosion is presented as one of the strongest spells in existence. A tier 9. An ult. An epic. Those are spells you're supposed to be like 70 years old to cast.
Considering that Wiz died when she was 20 and she's PROBABLY not significantly older than that but is such an archmage that she can repeatedly spam Explosion, you should probably object more to her
I dunno about you, but when I was DMing, for some of the special NPCs I just gave them a single level in a unique class so Megumin would be
Race - Crimson Demon
Class - Mage 10 or whatever, Megumin 1
This brushes aside all the problems with trying to jigsaw incompatible properties.
In GURPS, points are like a measure of power. Average people have 25-50, cops and athletes would have 50-75, soldiers 75-100, and so on.
Even Magery 20 (which is very high) would only give 60 extra energy.
I.e. subtracting 20 needed skills, or only about 8 years in age.
Crimson Demons have a racial ability to unconsciously tap into the boundless dark energy of the Abyss which fortifies their magic pool.
If Megumin's body could handle the unlimited negative energies pumping into it, she would be able to cast a BA-BOOOOOM! of apocalyptic proportions. Luckily she has low CON and she's overwhelmed quickly.
Actually I forgot that she uses a very expensive staff which could store lots of energy, say something like 300.
So her skill level would be more around 100. That'll shave off at least 175 years or so.
Megumin got 46 out of the 50 skill points needed to learn explosion initially from skill up potions. I dunno how that would figure in to gurps, but I imagine it would let you up her magery or something.
>There is no Eris doujin yet
Chris don't count.
It feels like they are different person.
>the golden apples are her hair decoration
Give me a good reason to NOT BREED with her.
Seriously, I play games, I like anime, I'm into math and science, but I can only dream of achieving the level of autism of people who delve into things like this. It's truly awe inspiring.
Why didn't you tell her sooner??
Did YunYuns VA changed? I think she sounds different than in OVA.
As expected from low intelligence goddess
This show is fucking hilarious man.
>Aqua and that other chick popping in and out of the frogs, alternating between panicked screaming and moaning
>Megumin going full bully mode on Yunyun
>That fucking speech Kazuma gave to Megumin in front of the bath about gender equality and cliches
>The crystal ball showing how big of no friend losers both Megumin and Yunyun are
Kazuma and his party of retards are gonna end up destroying Australia by the end of the show
>steals scraps, produce, and eats random bugs and crustaceans to feed her tiniest imouto with an insatiable appetite
Best crimson demon.
A warning to all planning on marrying a Crimson Demon. EVERY SINGLE CHILD will end up as a chuuni girl with dark hair and red eyes.
If you want a male heir to your clan or a child with any reasonable level of social skills then do not wed a crimson demon.
I'm not sure I understand what was going on in this scene.
Hes telling the truth, thats what going on. Maybe they are trying to push for the romance bit faster, because if we have to wait for the LNs to hit screen then people will have to wait for 3 more years.
In the LN he was thinking about how Yunyun was superior in every way to Megumin, better looking, better skill, better personality. Megumin says she can tell what he's thinking about but they didn't put that line in.
The basically sleep in the same bed together in volume 5, with megamem basically confessing her love but gets cold feed. In volume 9 both sleep in the same bed again, or kinda at least. Megameme confesses properly, tells Kazukek that she loves him, he kinda fucks up after that (was also a bit Aquas fault). They basically were about to kiss before Aqua disrupted them. At the end of volume 9 Kazuma goes full fucking retard, though so their relationship is basically back to square 1 again.
Nah she's full dere to him now. Darkness is also becoming more blatant in her attempt to seduce him, though she might still has some reservation concerning her status as a noble.
Megumin is still at that annoying "I confessed to him but it's not like we are dating or anything!" phase.
Only based Aqua didn't have any romantic flag whatsoever with him. A lot of best friend/family flag though.
You mean the one where she brags about having slept in the same bed with him and their bodys rubbing against each other? Will probably be the same we saw in episode 2. The best part of that arc is the ending, with Kazuma re-allocating all her points to make the explosions hit even harder. Thats going to be a good episode.
Yeah thats what I meant. I imagine that to basically be like the last couple scenes from episode 2. Thats also how it was written in the LNs. Megumin purposely teases them with all this shit to make them jealous which results in them running away. Basically YunYuns reaction.
What part are you referring to?
>kazuma tells megumin to learn other spells
>kazuma says megumeme is prettier so as not to say that yunyun is much superior in magic matters
>megumin gets pissed
Volume 9. Megumin was a wreck after killing the person who inspired her to use explosion in the first place. Kazuma focused on cheering her up. Sure he could technically have gone in for a kiss and it would have been okay, but waiting to make sure that he's not taking advantage of Megumin when she's emotionally vulnerable is one of the most respectable decisions he has made in the entire series. Sure, telling her that he was going to the succubus shop after because he had blue balls was a mistake, but the way he acted with Megumin in his room was fine.
No, you dumbass.
Kazuma has god-tier luck stats.
He's gonna get a harem ending.
Aqua for nights out on the town, Darkness for crazy sex and devotion, and Megumin for kinship and bonding.
Konosuba doujins are fun to read, I don't even fap to them.
>“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.”
>nterrupting what I said, Megumin leaned her face closer.
>Perhaps she was excited, as her eyes shone crimson red. I felt a serious atmosphere that didn’t allow for any joking around.
>I reflexively gulped.
>“I want you to sleep with me tonight. Uhm, is… that… fine…?”
>virgin asking to sleep with the only man she is interested in
I know looks aren't everything, but I still don't see how a curvy qt like YunYun can't make friends. She's friendly and doesn't seem all that autistic (certainly less than Kazuma's party of morons).
>tfw you will never bomb some dodonkos
In her village she was the weird one that was ashamed of all the chuuni stuff they do, all that loneliness snowballed over till when she finally left the village she had zero social skills and scared off normal people.
I am surely late for this.
So we can agree that OP1 > OP2 and ED1 < ED2, right?
Megumin has good genes, superior even, it's just that he has a stubborn personality putting all of her ability on EKSPROSIONS.
No, the entire school is Chuuni. They actually have several classes on how to introduce yourself in a dramatic fashion just like Megumin always done and the answer to many questions were "because it looks cool".
>“Recruiting party member. Must be gentle and willing to patiently listen to boring chatter. Must not mock people with weird names. Must be able to stay together even on days with no quests. Must be a frontline fighter. Preferably close to my age. I’m a 13-year-old arch wizard—“
>doesn't seem all that autistic
This is exactly why she can't make friends.
Everyone else in the Crimson Magic Village is at least as bad as Megumin is, in the autistic chuuni department. Yunyun is ostracized because she's normal and finds the shit they do cripplingly embarassing and cringe-inducing.
>But didn't she go to school full of people who weren't in the crimson semen demon clan?
The Crimson Demon Clan has the only actual school in the entire country, and possibly the world.
Royalty and other nobles have personal tutors, but only the crimson demon clan has actual schoolhouses and compulsory schooling.
So all her classmates were flaming autists.
Where the fuck did this character come from? She just suddenly turned up one episode in season one and suddenly became the most important character in the plot without any explanation whatsoever.
>is basically back to square 1 again.
this shit always happens with shitty writers.
Fortunately that anon is a speedreading fag,
There relationship is still in play Kazuma likes Megumin and she likes him back and they are both away of this fact and play off it.
It's most definitely not at square 1.
Otonanokaidan - ROFLOL
ok, Megumin is just an /a/ level troll at this point. Poor yunyun.
If they just wait a year and a half they're both legal in my state, so no problemo.
Hell, I assume it's been long enough in-universe to say "Give it a year and they'll be fine."
>Yunyun challenges Megumeem to a contest of paizuri
>Kazuma begins sweating heavily as the crimson chuuni jiiiiis at him harder and harder while his eyes dart between yunyun's yunyuns and megumin's nai
except by law statutory rape
Statutory rape to have sexual intercourse with someone under age 16. One to 20 years in prison, but (1) 10 to 20 years if the offender is age 21 or older and (2) up to one year in prison if the victim is age 14 or 15 and the offender is no more than three years older.
they'll end this season with Yunyun proposing to Kazuma and Kazuma accepting, to everyone's stunned disbelief, and YES there will be another season. Have you seen the preorders? This is blowing the first season out of the water.
Megumin with a pony tail is criminally cute.
it's a bit ahead of last year's sales numbers at the same point in the season. I'd say it will break 12k just like season 1 disk 1 did, and probably end up around 9k average per volume like season 1.
That's a weird interpretation of the events of volume 9/10.
And it's only three years apart. What's wrong with that, faggot?
When Kazuma's 21 she'll be 18. Dumb faggot. Stop being such a Megumin hater.
These scenes make me want to befriend Yunyun and make dinner for Megumin
They deserve happiness
Basically Kazuma is wishing YunYun was in their party instead of Megumin, thinking Yunyun would be a lot more useful, since she knows "other" magic and isn't a one pump chump.
However, he's just smart enough not to say that out loud, that said, Megumin "guesses" what he's thinking about when he asks her to learn other spells, so when he says she's prettier then Yunyun, Megumin gets pissed thinking "That's ALL I am over Yunyun?!!!!" in short she took it like the awkward backhanded compliment it was.
I want to marry, impregnate, and protect Yunyun!
Not necessarily in that order.
Vol.3 is a Darkness volume and Vol.4 is an Aqua one so we'll be getting a lot more of them this season while Megaman only has a few moments until Vol.5 which isn't getting adapted.
Statutory rape laws in America differ by state. They also tend to have a lot of exceptions if the parties are close in age because throwing horny teenagers in jail for having sex is an exercise in futility.
Am I supposed to read the fanfic? I can't help but feel that the humor's been lost in the translation.
How many volumes of the fanfic are in total and how many volumes of it are getting adapted?
When is Chris joining as a permanent party member, you will never be a full party without a rogue
Currently 10 total + 5 spinoffs (Megumin x4, Vanir x1)
Volumes 3 and 4 are getting adapted right now.
Volume 11 + 12 should be out this year.
I think she does in the WN. Maybe latter on near the end.
She also occasionally adventures together with Darkness as shown in Explosion spinoff, so maybe we'll get to see that as a short story?
Not him, but thanks for the info
I cant wait for vol 10 to be finished, just tell me, for the ones that have read it chapter by chapter, has Megumin and Kazuma relationship changed?
Not really. Only a few lines address it. Darkness tries to rape Kazuma a few times this volume though. The biggest development in volume 10 is the glorious return of
the truth bell
A bit. Megumin relies on Kazuma more openly and occasionally flusters him by being honest with her feelings. Kazuma feels a bit more obligated to do nice things for her, even if he's tsundere about it. They still give each other tons of shit though.
Not sure if it's the same principle, but
a teacher I had told us when she was younger and screwed something up, her mother would just look at her and say "you're so pretty." It reached the point where the word pretty became an insult to her, because they were implying they didn't have much else going for them.
Man what I like of most of the translated doujins so far, is that they use actual shit from the LN instead of just lame event or excuse for sex, sadly one of the few exeptions is the one with Yunyun.
I dunno anon, someone managed to give birth to your whore of a mother, and she somehow managed to give birth to you.
So these rectangle icon really is the icon for Axis cult huh?
You gotta admit Aqua really is tasteful, when it comes to art.
Crimson Demons are all smart in an academic sense, but their culture is all about being as chunni as possible so, for the most part, they are very lacking when it comes to common sense.
I vaguely remember that a handful of the girls found out but Vanir protected the succubi. I'm not sure if Darkness was among them. But even if she did know she's still too devout a follower of Eris to go to them.
here you go senpai
in case you didn't know they added a whole bunch of hoops to getting access
people need to get into the habit of posting single spoilered panels so people can reverse image search them instead of exhentai which needs to die
What hoops? A login for e-hentai?
its because you had an account before the changes
of course they don't tell you about this, this information is coming from new forumposters figuring stuff out on their own
there's no telling what new hoops they will ad next but it'd be nice if everyone dropped linking to exhentai and used literally any other source like hitomi la or nhentai which are basically the same thing
I feel like Megumin is that one guy who specs for the long game. I hope by the en of the series she's like a 13 year old girl version of Micheal Bay.
Quick Casting Explosions in every space available.
I'll keep that in mind for when I share porn with you guys.
sadly, I doubt she will ever put point of her mana, since is not directly affection explosion, she only use her points to make explosion stronger, faster and with better range, the best we can hope it that she somehow manage to reduce the casting value A LOT.
She already don't need to cast. Still have trouble regaining her mana though. Although I guess if push comes to shove, she could just use Aqua as infinite mana battery though.
I just had a mind blowing thought you guys,
Kazuma has super high luck right? Well in that case wouldn't it make sense that if he ever has sex with a condom off and doesn't want to impregnate someone then he would be able to alter the odds and never impregnate someone through his luckiness.
“………Nope, all the Crimson Magic clansmen have the important job of monitoring the demon king’s castle. Furthermore, they’re an important emergency force for the capital in case anything goes wrong. It wouldn’t be right for them to come for something like this right?”
>super high luck causes the seed to be super effective and create a god-tier child that goes on to make their parents rich
erby being a prodigy at something.
If I learned anything from luck-based heroes its that luck stats are instantly useless if they involve either avoiding a fight or having anything to do with women
Don't browse /pol/ nice try, but speaking of /v/
It looked a lot better than the first episode. The sequence with the exploding frogs was amazingly well animated, and the pacing was classic Konosuba. You're just shitposting for the sake of it.
Wouldn't Megumin get angry when Aqua called Kazuma a lolicon neet from bathing with her?
Was a general of the demon army, that after getting killed once, by Kazuma's group, he revived because he had a spare mask, took the oportunity to leave the demon army and took over Wiz shop; since he is a high demon the succubus love him but he is not interested.
Depends completely on the state.
>if a young adult over the age of 17 has consensual sexual relations with someone under the age of 17, but at least 15 years old, with no more than a four-year age difference between the two, the new law will not require the older party to register as a sex offender
It's insane to think that there are actual situations where an 18 year old gets registered as a pedophile for having sex with a 17 year old in some states.
I remember a Dateline episose or something where this happened and both partners had consensual sex, both of their parents were okay with it, and the 18 year old still got put on the sex offender registry.
The Sex Offender Registry is practically a joke.
A girl got put on it for taking a picture of herself naked, and sending it to her boyfriend.
She was charged with Production, Possession and Distribution of CP. And the BF (who was also her age) was charged with Possession.
Imagine telling the angry mob at your door that the reason you're on the sex offender registry is because your girlfriend from high-school sent you a picture of her boobs.
>She was charged with Production, Possession and Distribution of CP. And the BF (who was also her age) was charged with Possession.
No shit she got charged. She literally distributed images of a minor.
The real joke is how pissing in the bushes at a park at night gets you on the list.
>The real joke is how pissing in the bushes at a park at night gets you on the list.
Almost happened to me. I contested ticket and showed up to the judge with a suit and tie and the officer who gave me the ticket never showed up so it was basically tossed out.
Because it's a way of detecting newfags or secondaries like you.
Jesus fuck. You got fucking lucky.
Kazuma sure looks weird grown up. I wonder what they were thinking with the time skip.
>we don't have translations
Oh. You don't know about the translations.
To avoid DMCA issues.
Kadokawa started trying to shut down the translation, and at the time no one knew why, so they started calling it a fanfic to throw off copyright lawyers/bots.
Of course, then Yen Press actually announced their license for the book, so it's likely Kadokawa had been planning to release KonoSuba in the states for a while.
There are no translations. They got DMCA'd a year or two back. Everything from Vol1 to 3 was lost. After that, a few anons that knew the story, but didn't know moonrune wrote the fanfic so everyone else could read it before the anime came out.
But that's what they said anyway. If the Japs wanted it to be clear they could have used lolicon-NEET instead (which they didn't), I don't see why Americans are so special that they won't understand what's being said unless they translate one part and leave everything else as it is.
Probably because in Japanese the connotation of the word is different.
This is the thing about language; words can mean slightly different things, and compound words that make sense in one language are gibberish in another.
Why bother reading subtitles at all, if you want them to use the exact Japanese word for everything? Nothing is lost if they decide to use "loli" here, or "pedo" there.
In that case, they could have used pedophile instead of the multiple instances of lolicon to go even further into Commie territory.
It's not like anyone who's watching this is unaware of what loli and lolicon mean (I mean there's no way right) and I don't think it's possible at all to understand all the other mentions of loli but somehow not get the loliNEET part, even if you're missing 95% of your brain. I'll just blame this bizarre inconsistency on how bad CR has been recently while at the same thanking them for not going all the way.
You guys parse stuff really weird. Kazuma knew what he was thinking of would not have been liked and he knew Megumin was getting suspicious so he said "I was just thinking that you were prettier than the other girl" as a deflection. It's obvious in his deadpan delivery. He wants to compliment her because he can't say what he is really thinking and he wants to deflect the conversation.
>from now on, every time I call someone out on saying that Megumin is a loli, they might say that I am Megumin
If I can't be the little Crimson Devil, this is the second best thing
It's a substitution cipher of Latin letters.
Match each symbol to a letter, and there you go.
Season 1 also had them on the Adventurer cards, so fans have had plenty of time to decode them.
>NTR doujin where Megumin is slowly replaced by Yunyun in both the party and the bedroom
>ends with "My name is Yunyun! Future Village Chief! I am the number one crimson demon cuckqueen! I wield advanced magic and the loyalty of cuckslave and fiance, Kazuma Satou!
>announced naked with yunyun wearing nothing with a cape, Megumin's eyes go dead upon hearing the news and goes into the forest to cast explosion on herself
A lot of anime do it, actually. Make up some elaborate runes, map them to some letter or kana, and just write Japanese/English with it. Occasionally even German.
Some of the designs are really interesting though.
>implying Yunyun could ever defeat Megumin even in the realms of doujins
>not a newfag
Let's not play this game, since there will always be someone who's been here longer than you.
Using a doujin idea with NTR just proves he has shit taste.
Using words like cuckqueen or cuckslave however exposes that poster as someone who shouldn't be here.
And this fag ain't me, for reference
