    Great to have this back.
    but the true question remains.

    Does Aqua wear pantsu?

    I planned to start the first season soon, but I guess I will wait until this one is over and marathon both seasons in one go

    If you're scared of cliffhangers, there's no need. It's purely comedy

    Nah, it's not that. I just prefer to watch related stuff in one go.

    I fixed this for you. I don't know where you were going with the part I cut out - it's pure nonsense to me.

    Just a little over a week now. I think this is my most-looked forward to of winter. Hype. This season better be just as crazy, although I would certainly take crazier too. :smile:

    Episode 1:

    Only Kazuma could turn an insanely high luck stat into such misfortune.

    I have to admit that in a world where lockpicking is a fairly common and easily acquired skill, combination locks just make more sense. It's little smart bits of parody like this that I really enjoy the show for. The broadstrokes humor is solid, but it's the little details where this show really shines and shows its love for RPGs.

    Anyway that was just about the lamest attempt at a prison break I've ever seen. Gotta love how you can never underestimate how dumb the goddess is.

    However, the best part of the episode was a toss up between the humiliating interrogation scene and the actual trial. I think I liked the interrogation scene a little more, because it went from Kazuma being completely humiliated to him getting a little redemption only to have him waaaaay overplay his hand and get himself thrown into an even worse position. It was a funny bit of table flipping that played off his vanity.

    Just look at this misshappen hunk of humanity:

    I like that by the end of the episode not only has the crew lost everything, but they've even lost their original purpose. Forget defeating the Devil King, they've got to get themselves out of debt and prove Kazuma isn't in league with the Devil King. Plus, they're now going to be observed by someone, so they'll probably rack up even more damages.

    I do find the derpy art to be pretty funny, because the show can't hide its porny origins, but the characters look so damn inhuman that I can't imagine anyone enjoying the ecchi. Stick figures with boobs would be sexier.

    Good first episode. Looking forward to more.

    Every bit of this episode had me laughing my ass off and the derpy faces are more derpier than ever. Glad DEEN doubled down on the awesome "quality" they're known for. The wonky and loose faces really enhances the comedy. The interrogation and the trial segments were definitely the highlight especially when the orchestral music started playing. It was non-stop laughs for me from then on.

    A pretty strong start for the second season. Just hope there's more than ten episodes this time.

    I suspect that he was only told that he had good luck to make him feel better at this point, since not much that's transpired that suggests he has much. Sure he has 3 anime girls next to him at most times but their all morons and he hasn't gotten lucky with any of em.

    The whole trial scene bit reminded me of the last episode of Seinfeld, where the main characters are grilled in court over some bullshit Good Samaritan law and a bunch of side characters from seasons past make cases against them as witnesses.



    Likewise, there's a bit of karma here even if the situation itself is overblown bullshit.

    Plenty of comedies throw their characters into terrible situations at the end of an episode only for it to not matter by the beginning. It's cool seeing a comedy that doesn't feel the need to completely forgo continuity for the sake of new comedic scenarios like that.

    Good shit and it seems we even got an early full moon sighting

    That might actually be a stroke of luck when your choice are an extreme masochist, a girl that will probably punctuate sex with explosive magic and a goddess with no brain and high physical stats so likely to hurt him without even knowing it.

    I do admit the derpy faces do add charm to the comedy.

    I can't look at this and not laugh:

    Is she going commando? Anyways, they clearly know that's the only feasible way to meet the "fanservice" quota that I'm sure is quite literally obligatory, considering the inconsistent and poor character art.
    At least nice they embrace the wonkiness of the designs for the comedy. Yet another sign of DEEN really having gotten new leadership over the last year or so: being able to actually make an advantage out of a weakness.


    Episode 1
    Pretty brilliant execution of what's essentially just a recap episode of the previous season. I sure know that if I was a newcomer who just randomly picked up this episode without seeing the previous season, this would entice me to pick that one up as well.

    In any case, the true reward will be

    all the doujinshi!

    First season brought a great wave. May this one bring yet another!

    Judging by the preview, I wonder if next episode will make the OVA from the previous season an obligatory watch as well, or if they'll recap that, too.

    I hope for more Wiz this season. Not enough. Not enough.

    EP 1

    This poor bastard can't catch a break.

    Okay. I'm seeing a pattern now. I think his luck stats may be higher. However, I think his charm stats are moving up as well or he has this horrible ability to get the opposite sex to kinda fall for him just a bit. That or bring the vulnerable side out. Maybe persuasion stats being boosted yet he doesn't know.

    Case in point. The prosecutor going all cute on him. But then he got too full of himself and ruined that chance.

    Finally. How in the hell can that even be considered a skirt? Full moons all over the place. The fanart this season will be insane. I'll be very sure to enable incognito mode if I ever google her name....lol

    Episode 01

    I hated this episode

    for making it so difficult to choose a facial expression out of the countless amazing ones as my new avatar.

    KONOSUBA IS BACK BABY!!

    Fantastic first episode...

    ... though I'm scared Darkness walking away will be her exiting the main cast. She's my favorite character, so that would be a bummer.

    Episode 2:
    The art is slightly better in this episode, nothing derpy or anything. Shame.

    No matter how many times they do the "Kill the Giant Toads" quest it will never not be funny. Also, I lost it when the flower Yunyun is trying to smell grew legs and just ran the fuck out of there. That had me laughing for a whole minute.
