What's up with people liking Konosuba on /a/?

Why do they like such a shit series? Why are they such cancerous retards? Will we ever get rid of/purge them?

But what don't you like about it

>>155444687
What exactly is good about it? And plus, even if their were anything good about it, most threads on /a/ are just circlejerking on which girl is "Best", and that's how you can really tell a series is shit.

It has some good soundtrack for example.

Because /a/ is full of modern kids who think faggots screaming and ecchi jokes are really funny.

>>155445121
Sure. It was decent at first, some funny jokes aimed at other isakei and RPG tropes, then it slowly slid into a harem comedy, and character interactions started to turn into the same thing, along with character development that almost literally becomes non-existent after the first season.

It was like i was trying to watch a series that wanted to find its identity, found it, and then completely forgot what it wanted to be and started to look for a new one.

I liked it a lot when it premiered. I was a NEET for awhile and Kazuma's relatability drew me in. There were fanservice elements but it was never too much. The show made me laugh and also made me care about the characters.

>also made me care about the characters.

How exactly? They were all just so boring. Replace tsundere with a cry baby, keep chuuni, and instead of a erotic, sexy lady with a masochist. Boom, you got your cast of shitty, pandering characters v2.

Then Kazuma, oh god, Kazuma. He could have been a very interesting character, but nope, make him stay a virgin so that retards watching/reading the series can relate and go "I would totally do that, lol!"

Konosuba is a lighthearted comedy with likable characters. If you don't see those things in the show, or if you don't value those things, that's fine. But the real question here is, what's up with people liking things that I don't like?

I believe its the first episode of Season 2

What makes them "likable"? They literally have zero original characteristics.

or is "Likable" a new buzzword for anime character that are just terrible? Like when people started to call Subaru "realistic".
>>

They're all horrible assholes that are relatable. That's the appeal

To be entirely honest it does just boil down to all that.

>>155446370
>Kazuma's relatability drew me in.
Initially it did for me as well, but immediately was lost.
I doubt a NEET would maniacally laugh in front of girls like he did when he chose Aqua to come with him. Plus he gets paired up with a little cutie and a blonde masochist and never once drops his spaghetti in a NEET fashion. Not to mention he finds work almost immediately after joining the guild, something a NEET would never be able to do within a day.
There was also that whole panty situation.
He's just too bold and outright for the character he was supposed to be.

Bullshit, they go hand in hand and you fucking know it.
NEET is just a nice way of saying someone is a socially inept robot, shut in, and autist.
>>
>>155452368
If he didn't want to find work where he came from, why the fuck would he want to find work in another world where he would have even LESS understanding of everything? It makes zero fucking sense!
>>
>>155452493

Not at all. People get stuck without a job for a variety of reasons. Being a NEET isn't a permanent thing for the vast majority of people.
>>
>>155452539

Because without quick and easy access to numerous forms of entertainment via the internet, what the fuck else is he supposed to do?
>>
>>155452556
>Being a NEET isn't a permanent thing for the vast majority of people

Except Kazuma didn't want to do ANYTHING! Not even attend fucking school!
>>
>>155452556
And yet Kazuma was literally locked up in his room playing PC games only to venture out of his cave just to get a new fucking game. If he was having a tough time looking for work then that's a "fine" way of showing it.
He was supposed to be this shut in self insert for us to relate to but loses all reliability as soon as he makes friends with a hot goddess, gets a job, and literally gets a low key harem that he spends time with everyday.

No, after he seen his "Friend" from school dating someone else, he decided he didn't want to stay in school and stayed home all the time and played games.

My point exactly.
The story sucks you in thinking you can relate and suddenly becomes nothing but a young man getting surrounded by girls, becoming a hero at time, being a bold pervert, and repetitive stale jokes that grew old before the first season ended.
But in the end I still liked it and I hate myself for liking it.
>>

/a/ will debate which girl is """best""" for any series with two or more girls in it. That doesn't mean a show is shit. The real reason Konosuba sucks is that it's not funny.

>>155453703
It's not even that, it's just, he makes no moves even though he is clearly a pervert. He has no real romance to those he has known for awhile now, but he still tries to act like a pervert?

What does he want? Does he want be a sexual deviant, does he just not like the girls in any sexual way, but if so, why does he still act like a pervert to them? What the fuck is the character trying to fucking?

It's the same reason i don't like Sora from No Game No Life. He obviously wants to have sex, but he doesn't at the same fucking time.

To be fair, Darkness is *LITERALLY* a one joke character in S1. I like Konosuba but even I was getting very tired of her. She improves in S2 at least, but I wish they'd give her more character so she could have more comedic versatility.

The characters are good. Kazuma is actually funny. I want to know what you think about main characters from other shows. Do you like the obnoxious "i have to cry autistically when a girl just looks at me" type of character? Do you like the "the main character stresses himself until he has an autistic meltdown, and the girl tells him everything is ok" type of character? Well sorry Konosuba isn't like that.

You're right, it's about a character who does literally nothing different, just instead of being an autistic cry baby, he's an autistic asshole, who still doesn't do anything, just like every other Isakei MC.

>>155454852

Is it really immortality if you can (and do) die?
>>
>>155455917

Yes
>>
>>155455917
It's immortality if you can put yourself in situations that would normally kill you without hesitating because you know you're not in any real danger.

Take that as you will.
>>
>>155456876
Then it's more like nigh-invulnerability. He can die, but it is far harder to finish him off
