Honestly this show is over-hyped, its a comedy fantasy with a main male character that dies and gets reborn into a fantasy world with magic, with female side characters. Oh man where have I heard or seen that 100 times?! Season 1 and 2 has proven its point story-wise and so far I don't see what else it can do. I know, the show is a walking meme and people want their fill, and have funny screenshots for their profile pics or whatever media. I would like Season 3 to be the last and conclude things as it runs the risk of overstaying its welcome and becoming stale.

It's funny. I like funny. I'd love as much funny as possible.

I agree with you to some extent. Konosuba seemed like an attempt to balance comedy and ecchi, still status-quo, but the humor was more charming than others. After all these years, High School DxD is still coming out with more and that's probably the most over hyped ecchi today.

At least fans can enjoy the upcoming 2nd OVA (bundled with the 12th LN) and VN coming this summer on PS. Lastly, let's not forget the unusual 2x 10 episode format + 20min 1st OVA. That could possibly mean another short(er) season or extra OVAs. I've seen worse series with more and better series with less.

No Darkness figures? What the fuck anime?

This is heresy. I shall buy a hundred Darkness dakimakuras to compensate.



I think Darkness' outfit isn't very marketable but Freeing did take Yunyun's bunny suit from the 1st OVA and give it to Aqua / Megurin. Maybe they'll do the same for Darkness down the line. I refuse to buy any figures that don't have the entire cast available. It's like Asuka without Rei. Blasphemy indeed!

A Nendoroid of Darkness is already in the pipeline (October 2017 scheduled release), and there a trio of figurines (Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness sold as a set) that, if I recall correctly, is a Bandai exclusive of some sort (might need a proxy service to get it if you want it and don't live in Japan).

I get what you're saying. Definitely...


But Kazuma snarking on everyone and everything around him is what got me hooked on this show. I liked the fact that he didn't instantly fall for someone (Eris isn't really in it that much) and is more like, 'Y'all are freaking crazy'

If it doesn't happen I will get Megumin to use Explosion Magic on the world.

Same that got me hooked, I didn't care for all the over sexualization and over done jokes. The series is good. I just wish it had a bit more of a defined plot. And don't tell me its take out some Demon Lord, they did not for one SECOND care to do it. (maybe that was the joke to because its so cliche lol?)

What the hell do people think they're going to accomplish with this shit? Do they think we're going to go "omg what an insightful analysis, fuck this show" because they are so amazing and awesome and cool?

Complain and yet ignore literally everything else I said after that quote as to why I think it's over-hyped like some liberal or conservative cherry-picking everything. SMH.

I'm sorry, did you think I was obligated to give you a thorough fisking? Because I'm not, so I won't.

Maybe they do in one of the novels?

Not gonna spoiler this, since the show's done...but here's one theory I've seen:

You know that one tough looking guy that sometimes pops up in the bar where Kazuma and co. hang out? I think he was actually a weaver, but he was a big guy that always had a nice word about Kazuma....


I think that might be the Demon Lord.

I'm currently on season 2, and I think it's a hilarious show, poking fun at "alternate world" genres that's not meant to be taken seriously.
