Megumin is a young and passionate wizard from the Crimson Demon Village, a remote community of mages with red eyes and a flair for the dramatic. She has devoted her life to mastering explosion magic, a powerful but impractical spell that leaves her drained of mana and unable to move for the rest of the day. Regardless, she refuses to learn any other skills.

Along with her childhood friend and self-proclaimed rival, Yunyun, Megumin enrolls in the Red Prison: a prestigious academy for Crimson Demon magic users. There, she learns more about the secrets and history of her clan, as well as the threats and challenges they must face. As she polishes her power at the Red Prison with the help of her loyal familiar Chomusuke and her adorable little sister Komekko, Megumin aims to become the greatest explosion wizard of all time!

This show's tagline should be: 'do you remember the explosion girl from Konosuba? (of course you do, you perverts) well, here's more!'. With one of the most explosive intros in anime history, Megumin makes her triumphant return to the small screen... or not?

Animation: 7
Standard grade from Konosuba and it's consistent all the way.

Story: 7.5
This show starts low and ends high, fellas. We got a few major arcs. The first arc is a school arc which quite honestly blows. Second mini-arc is the after-school special and then we get Arcanletia and the real fun begins. After that one we get Axel which is the best ...

Mixed Feelings
Well... The prequel to Konosuba. I went in with high hopes but got dissappointed slightly (sadly)

(note: I watched it with the German dub)


First of... yes, we are talking about Konosuba, a comedy anime with a very thin plot, but even in Konosuba terms.... this anime barely has a story. You have 3 Major points in the story which are pretty monotone, all taking place in places known from the 2 Konosuba Seasons and the Movie, so nothing new here. Although the anime manages to build the characters Megumin and Yun-Yun a little more, which is something i like to see.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! is a light novel series spin-off of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!, written by Natsume Akatsuki and illustrated by Kurone Mishima.

Despite being a spin-off, the series does not add anything new or interesting to the KonoSuba universe, and is limited to repeating the same jokes and situations from the original work. The characters are shallow, the plots are predictable and the humor is forced. The only thing that is saved is Mishima's line, which manages ...
