[Spoilers] Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 -Episode 1 Discussion
That fucking Star Wars opening, I love this show holy shit
Did those motherfuckers take Megumin's staff? HOW WILL WE HAVE EXPLOSIONS NOW??
Fuck the staff, they took his motherfucking tracksuit! EDIT: the motherfuckers fucking tried to take it, Kazuma had it at the end
Fuck Darkness. That's it really
Trial of the century. Holy fuck that was hilarious. I love how that glasses woman didn't even bother listening to the rest of the witnesses' full explanation.
This episode was amazing. The RPG + Star Wars opening scene was very good. Then there was also Ace Attorney's "Objection" by Megumin. Overall, the KonoSuba we all know and love is back. Funny, wonky, goofy and likable. Especially when Sena keep on cutting off eye witness' testimonies or the time she put Kazuma back in his place.
It is definitely a great start of the season. It's a shame there's only 10 episodes, but I can live with it as long as they announce third season by the end of the season.
Something about this
Is it me or has the visual quality gone down a bit since the last season? Characters seem a bit angular at times.
Other than that, good start. Nice to see it's more like the first season than it is like the OVA. Kazuma is still a bit too scummy at times for my tastes, but I liked it nonetheless.
Fuck the tracksuit, they took Aqua's motherfucking sake!
My Dad asked me if I wanted to go out today for my birthday and I told him I didn't feel like it.
The real reason is because I wanted to stay home and watch Konosuba.
There's no better gift, than the gift of EXPLOSIONS!
EDIT: I was wrong, DEEN got me an even better gift this year.
Exactly what I wanted
ms. galaxy note 7 is back
They're back. They're back after a year. I missed them so much. Konosuba is finally back. I have such a huge grin on my face right now. This was everything I wanted and expected and more. The Star Wars and Ace Attorney parodies, the ridiculous faces (the lower quality just adds to the hilarity), Aqua's skirt getting even shorter, this season is wonderful. Sasuga, Deen.
Then there was also Ace Attorney's "Objection" by Megumin.
fun fact: In the LN, Aqua was boosting that she knows everything about trials by playing Ace Attorney and Danganronpa and therefore she screamed "Objection" allt he time
I'm actually amazed that they wrote it in English, despite there's a typo in it like "Etranger" instead of "Stranger" and "Caos" instead of "Chaos"
IT'S OUT! PRAISE THE LORD!
Fuck the sake, what's going to happen to Darkness!
I think the lower quality just makes it funnier honestly.
Ah yes, KonoSuba actively reaching out to its European viewers.
Its confirmed she wears underwear.
She just turns it invisible so nobody gets a pantyshot.
"It's a combination lock."
When Aqua tried to get past the guards and give Kazuma a stepping box, it reminded me how dumb she actually is.
Yup, that sounds like Aqua reasoning to me.
sadly, they didn't show the scene when everyone was accusing Kazuma for being a terrorist and Megumin was defending him by "proposing to show them how a real terrorist looks like" and all the guards jumped on her to prevent something bad
I wouldn't go that far.
didn't even bother listening to the rest of the witnesses' full explanation
, they only want enough context to make you look guilty.
We Shaft now
If only Kazuma didn't call out that forbidden topic she might have been a bit more lenient with him at the first questioning.
At this point, we just have to agree that Aqua goes commando. There's literally nothing there.
"Etranger" instead of "Stranger"
I mean, that's a French translation, so it might have been intentional
We're back baby! Those references though. Loving the new ED.
He's going to wear her armor?!
Kazuma is far from scummy!
I was afraid this was going to happen when the PV came out.
They embraced Season 1's artstyle way too much and it just feels like its much more of a eyesore now.
I still have high hopes for the season nonetheless and still think it'll be great
They took her staff at the end of the episode
Makes me sad there was no absurdly loud "SORE WA CHIGAOU YO" from Aqua now.
Isn't that just Reddit as a whole?
I don't care what other people say, I will always ship Kazuma and Aqua. They're a perfect duo.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
in LN aqua actually yells "sore wa chigau yo"
then she admitting that she only wanted to yell it once during at a trial
If you look closely at the end, he's holding it in his arms, the tracksuit is safe!
I'd watch Mage Attorney. I always thought the game series was lacking explosions.
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 -Episode 1
This zoom-in on the background character from last season was hilarious.
Love seeing the crew back again. Kazuma hating everything. Aqua actin' all doofy. Megumin going chuuni. And Darkness angry about hearing her real name. Strong laughs and fun times throughout the whole episode.
Welcome back, KonoSuba. Welcome back. :3
Is it me or has the visual quality gone down a bit since the last season?
No, it definitely did. They went full ham with the QUALITY this episode, which means it's probably going to be that way for the whole season.
I don't much care for it, but it doesn't hurt my enjoyment too much. Just seems like something that's nice in moderation (like in season 1) but really loses it's charm when done too much.
Counterpoint, Kazuma has given her the one thing she couldn't ever have without it- two explosions in one day.
Also about "Caos".. I believe it means Chaos on Spanish.
Starting with the Star Wars credit roll, this is going to be a good season.
We got a giant explosion and depleted Megumin within 5 minutes.
And the author saw, and liked.
Guess those doujins are going to be canon now...
They work far better as best friends. I hope it stays this way
Anime > RL
dis sakuga lol
The ED this episode is actually the OP
Yeah I thought the faces were quite off...
DEEN: Ok guys we established that the fan base doesn't really care about the quality of our shots in this show....so lets half-ass that part to save precious funding and put quality into something we can enjoy!
Staffs: So we're still going 100% in the OP/ED right?
DEEN: No, no we're going to half-ass that too...intentionally in intelligent design!
EDIT: Well let's us hope that Kanasaki can still pull it off even with the "trimming" of the quality. One thing I'm afraid is that this season could have a tighter string, because Kanasaki actually pulled it off in season one (which was kinda of a gamble) and the management said the, "you could do that again right?" type of deal.
I know I did ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Haaa, when it made them much more money than Rakugo, ikr?
I don't even think Megumi thinks of Kazuma as people though, just as someone who isn't an explosion.
It feels like it has gone down a bit, like they ran with the first season quality, but went a little too lax.
TOP 10 SADDEST ANIME DEATHS
He still has it in the next scene so either Kazuma's got one hell of a tight grip or the guards realized it wasn't worth anything and let him keep it.
I'm more torn up about them taking Megumin's staff...
I'm digging the new OP, probably because I'm a giant sucker for slap bass.
I'm making a gfy now of the little dance that the four of them do - are there any other scenes from the OP that anyone wants in gfy format?
EDIT:Short loop 2 (looped)
I guess Deen knows themselves which is the better show of the two.
Man, the animation looked awful in this episode. This was definitely a "classic DEEN" episode, and this is the one where it's supposed to be at its best. Not looking good for the rest of the season.
Comedy-wise, was definitely back to why I like Konosuba, with the exception of parts of the interrogation where Kazuma was somehow making the girl all embarrassed and apologetic. That was pretty stupid.
Well, she is boobs after all.
They went full Deen. You never go full Deen.
Trial reminded me of Chrono Trigger where all the insignificant shit he did came back to bite him in the ass.
DEEN made this on purpose and it's glorious.
DEEN doubled down on the QUALITY they're known for and it was fantastic. I'm so hyped to watch the rest of the season.
Its a shame we didn't get the ED this episode, I was really looking forward to it
Indeed. Megumin has a far better chance imo. And that sounds so weird to say because I know as a rule the "main" girl never loses but Konosuba breaks just enough tropes/rules I'm willing to believe it this one time.
It's like they write themselves.
and imprison the Axis cult !!!
they were bad because everybody who had a bad opinion got obliterated with down votes.
Another point in her favor - Kazuma's group is the only one who puts up with her ridiculous handicap and actually makes it useful, so she is very grateful to him. Megumin likes him a lot more than she usually lets on, especially in the OVA episode.
And I haven't read the LNs, but I hear she gets some pretty nice character development later on
Head canon turned to actually canon
Yeah, at times it looked .
Fuck them for trying to take the tracksuit!
Kazuma is dead inside LOL
That was really fun. Turns out I missed KonoSuba more than I remembered.
This is really just some shit people made up
Basically if you can see the front of their lower abdomen, it's safe to assume there is nothing there.
I genuinely can't make up my mind whether it's intentional or not. If this wasn't Konosuba, I'd just say "lol DEEN, way to half-ass it".
But... I can honestly imagine the animation supervisor looking at high quality work and saying "the joke is it looks trash. MAKE IT LOOK MORE TRASH".
I was like, hold on we are really gonna let that old creepy perv dude do whatever he wants with Darkness?
lol this would have been hilarious
Like... WHAT HAPPENED THERE
We Shaft now.
I thought the exact same thing. This pose came out of nowhere and I loved it.
It's in the LN
Also for fucks sakes DEEN. They're probably aware of their reputation but S1 had better animation than this. At least comedy is still on point and that's really all I'm expecting from this show.
i only heard if from someone else, but apparently the reason she looks like this is
Honestly, to me at least, the derpy animation and awkward faces make the show 10 times funnier.
Rakugo has the same good quality like last time and now they somehow drop even more quality on Konosuba?
