Turns out, evil takes initiative! With world domination close at hand, the Kisaragi Corporation turns its sights on interstellar conquest, and who better to take over a magical world than two randomly assigned minions—Combatant Agent Six and his android partner Alice? But Six’s path up the evil corporate ladder won’t be easy—a Demon Lord’s army is hatching its own nefarious plan!
coming from the same author as KONOSUBA, Combatants Will Be Dispatched! was always going to have its task cut out. Konosuba gained massive traction with many positive and negative reviews, with the +ve out wi=eighing the negative ones. people might say konoosuba is much better than Combatants Will Be Dispatched! but dont be fooled. Though the comedy of Konosuba was Good it felt sort of forced and cringy. but this is not the case here in konosuba, the author has managed to strike a proper balance between comedy and the plot with both balancing the other, whereas in Konosuba the comedy was too much. Konosuba had a pre teen set of cast whereas Combatants Will Be Dispatched! has an adult cast which makes it more likeable(for me atleast) and the comdy is not overstocked .so far(7+) the series has been great and dont mind the FANBOYS screaming that Combatants Will Be Dispatched! has floped. its just that they are angry that konosuba might most likely never get a season 3 and are venting their anger here. final ratings : a decent 7.5
here it is people proof that lighting does indeed not strike the same place twice. Before I thought about watching all i heard was "from the creator of Konosuba!" Over and over which really gets expectations to be at least close to the fun of konosuba well I can fairly say it wasn't nearly as good and damn near no worth the time. Of course give it the old 3-4 for watch test but as a warning if you didn't enjoy the small amounts of dick/ vulgar jokes on konosuba well this show is LITTERED with them and I mean litter like trash because when the same kind of joke hits you over and over it's not exactly the most fun thing to watch. That's not to say that it isn't funny when they aren't reusing the same 4 strings but that is very few and far between. For anyone needing a bit more info or are just curious here's the quick fire detailed review(don't worry spoiler free:) so first the animation, to many shows in the past year has come out with amazing quality animation, this looks like something back in 2010 there is nothing that catches your eyes..... unless you just really like looking at anime boobs all day then uhh here ya go next sound, this is subjective but the music was not my favorite either. It was very generic and nothing stood out. Now the characters, when you aren't being bombarded by a load(yes that's a play on words, they almost all are) of dick jokes to the face then the characters are fun to watch but again its few and far bewteen. finally the story, it's a different twist of an isekai, but with none of the flair or mystery that most of the popular isekais have so yet again it falls right back into the nothing special category. wrapping this up into a bow I'd have to say that this show felt out of time, it would be like watching heavens lost property or any of the other outrageously erotic shows from the 2000-2010 but it doesnt have any of the "oh it's old so it's alright" kind of thinking to protect it. Forget who the author is this show just isn't worth the time. Go watch the konosuba movie 6 times you'd get more laughs out of that than this. Hi to the people who made it this far go get you some cake or something you earned it also thanks for the read and have a good day!
From author of Konosuba* this season gets a Konosuba clone. The initial premise is interesting and had a lot of potential to be fresh take on isekai fantasy, but because it’s just the same, it’s disappointingly too similar. Just as Konosuba it abandons any attempt to develop story for sequence of short-term goals, which have nothing to do with overall objective of conquering the planet. We have evil organization, which doesn’t do anything truly evil on the screen as far as the series is concerned. Even if they do something violent, they feel bad. Same goes for main male protagonist and his android companion. Evil element is even more undermined with system of “evil points”, which is supposed to be funny, but becomes just excuse for agent six to do something lewd or annoying to girls. It quickly becomes overused trope. While other people look on the agents as doing something despicable, when they are planning against enemies. They are just using obvious strategies given the situation and equipment at the hand. For an example attacking enemy’s supplies rather than the main force. Even more than Konosuba the series embraces ecchi situations, where agent six rather than usual anime protagonist reacts in embracing the situation if not proactively looking for it. It also embraces main male character being more jerk to women around him. Which might be refreshing in way Konosuba did it by Kazuma not treating girls nice all the time under any situation as typical anime lead character. The only thing which series adds in regards to comedy are dick jokes. In regards to other elements. There is more fanservice. In terms of characters, it’s pretty much just rehash of Konosuba. We have Aqua equivalent in Snow, who is quick to jump into action without thinking, fail and whine. And she whines quite a lot. The only difference she is mostly motivated by money and has some genuine feelings for agent six. We have Megumin equivalent in Grimm, who is even more useless with her curses that have like fifty-fifty chance to fireback on herself. She is immortal and usually just dies first, then to be revived the next day. Darkness’s equivalent Rose is over obsessive about one thing food. The only different element is Alice, but even then, it’s just as overused trope of stoic, smart and small blond girl (plus android in this case) with snarky attitude. Visuals and soundtrack are ok for comedy series. It isn’t the thing anyone would watch the series for to begin with. At the end of the day, it’s just rehash of Konosuba. From reactions I saw some think it’s better other think it’s worse. Personally, I would lean towards the side, which considers it worse, than Konosuba. In itself it’s a joke already done before. That is prevailing sentiment I had throughout the series. Konosuba added dimension of parodying common isekai tropes. This doesn’t bring anything of substance to the table. By watching similar show already this thing couldn’t have that same impact. If you liked Konosuba you might enjoy it. Watch 2-3 episodes, if you like them the rest is pretty much on same level. * Kono Subarashii sekai he shukufuku wo!
