Konosuba is a good example of average beating flashy trainwreck. Although superficially it’s yet another trapped in a videogame show filled with fan service and otaku pandering, it is mostly a satire of JRPGs and nothing more. It is not making videogames to be harems masked as serious death games (Sword Art Online), it’s not stuffed with politics that go nowhere (Log Horizon), and it doesn’t treat its characters as proxies for misery porn (Grimgar).At the same time, it is not excelling at something either. The visuals are ok but far from great, the plot is there but it ain’t much, and the characters have personality but it’s fairly simple. What it manages to do in order to mitigate that is to not become stale after a few episodes (Ixion Saga DT), not go in circles without having a feeling of progression (Mondaiji), and not repeating the same joke in every episode until you no longer give a shit (One Punch Man).Did I find it hilarious? After the first episode, no I didn’t. Is it the best in what it’s doing? No it isn’t (Mahoujin Guruguru). Is it the best in the season it came out? No, but it’s definitely the funniest (Shouwa Genroku). Am I looking forward to the second season? No, there is nothing left to explore. Most of the first season was spent on introducing and getting to know the characters. Unless they keep introducing more characters or flesh out the setting, which I doubt they will, there is nothing they can do to keep it fresh. So there, well done, 5/10 but I am not interested for more. Now back to waiting for more Jojo to come out.
Before you read this it should be mentioned that this is my first review, so sorry in advance if its a mess. KonoSuba is another story that takes the "Average boy in fantasy world with RPG like aspects", but instead of making it semi-serious with a main character who is like a god, they go for a more simple comedic version of the setting. With the story being more comedy focused, don't be surprised if it doesn't go anywhere big. The biggest factor for this show is comedy. A good majority of the jokes are more young aduilt focused. I'm not really that knowledgeable about comedy, but figured I'd say something on about it. The Art, Animation, and Sound is rather average, maybe slightly above, but nothing note worthy. Then again the animation has its points, or maybe that's just me. If you can accept some flaws then I would recommend this show to people who wouldn't mind a more comedic verson of the fantasy RPG like world setting, or if you want something to pass the time with. But if you want to know for yourself if this show is for you, I would say go and watch the first episode, as that will give you a good indicator of what you can expect in the episodes after.
I was kind of looking forward to this one, unfortunately I didn't really enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. The characters are all defined through one thing and annoying without end. I liked the idea that the world wasn't the adventure filled world the protagonist wanted it to be, but instead of seeing it as a challenge (and talking some sense into his guild members), he mopedy mope moped through each episode. The only time they ever acted like adventurers/heroes, was whenever the plot required them to do so. Even all the other, so called, "adventurers" were unable to do anything whenever a real threat emerged, and put their hopes in the very same unskilled people, they didn't want in their guilds. "Nah, we don't want you in our guild. But we're sure to rely on you whenever shit goes down, because you're one of the main characters...". Great. The jokes weren't really funny, as much as they were repetitive and simple. A few jokes made me smile, but not much more. I watched all 10 episodes and I enjoyed about 30% of each. The rest I sort of sat through, waiting for the good part to finally start. Oh and I normally don't have a problem with fan service as long as it's served as part of the anime (and not overly present), but having close ups of boobs flopping everywhich way didn't really do it for me. I'd rather have any of the characters at least try to fix one of their many flaws. instead they just complained again about everything being so shitty. In the end, I was as much dissapointed with the show as whatshisface was with the world. Addendum: I like the animation and the show wasn't bad per se, (as in cringe worthy), just sort of boring and a annoying a bit to often.
