I can not see the pictures I'm posting, because I'm using the cell phone, the images are too small, when I get home I'll post the correct picture.

Akatsuki Natsume author of KonoSuba

this woman has earned my respect.

is there actually information on the author being female? All I could find on that was a blog entry from him/her whining how he/she picked a shitty pen name because the publisher forced him/her to practice signing autographs lol

Wikipedia doesn't really have any info on that either:

the problem with wikipedia and that people are editing all the time and some things that are there are not true.

no longer exist the 2ch.net that now belongs to the owner of 4chan, I use these saite for information

I believe you misread that. It was a comment about her practicing signing autographs for her first signing event in Akihabara and she now wished she had picked an easier pen name.

I just found out that she was a woman because some users 2ch.net, posted pictures with her in the KonoSuba LN threads, between 2014 and 2015, and I started reading the threads starting volume 2.

And I never cared about it because I thought everyone already knew and that was a disseminated information, now with anime on display, the people are again asked she are a man or a woman.

In that she did an autograph session with the artist on January 23rd, I think "had" she been a man, someone would have made a comment on it, that no one has, suggests that she is indeed a woman.

As for your "interpretation", I would say yes you got it wrong. You are also missing context.

Like many Light Novel writers, she started by posting online in a blog and it was the support of her readers that helped her get published. She picked the pen name long before finding a publisher. The joke in her post was that had she known that she would ever be doing an autograph session, she would have picked an easier pen name.

So she wasn't "whining", but showing the same self-deprecating humor that has made this series such a success.

I am fully aware of that. My innitial description was a joke for crying out loud... Just chill a bit dude. Read what I wrote and assume I understood it for just a second and it makes perfect sense as a lighthearted joke on that rather than me hating on an author who's series I love and actively read myself...

Gees, man up, admit you read it wrong, it's really no big deal. But trying to pass it off as a "joke" while engaging in passive-aggressive behavior makes you look pathetic.

I don't know what is wrong with people, they make it seem like they will be executed if they misread something or made a mistake.

If you want to see how it is done, go read the "Megumin's name" thread. I coughed up a whopping hair ball there, but I had the grace to say "whoops, wrong, my bad". I could because ultimately no mistake is a "big deal". We all make them, what is essential is to fess up to them asap.

There's nothing I read wrong though, again that's just you not even considering my pov lol. I've had this conversation 2 weeks ago on irc with someone else while I linked that event-vid so like I said it was a joke. Clearly I got on your toes with that description somehow so I'm going to apologize for that if you took it that badly but that's all.

maybe answer the actual question instead of that "duh" answer earlier and you won't get that attitude. The other guy wrote
"I just found out that she was a woman because some users 2ch.net, posted pictures with her in the KonoSuba LN threads, between 2014 and 2015, and I started reading the threads starting volume 2."
which is exactly what I was asking.
Your comment about there not being any comment refuting the claim didn't do anything but try to mock someone you either weren't willing to answer or couldn't answer. Because again, you completly ignored what I wrote there while the guy with slightly broken english understood me just fine and told me what I asked about without being condescending.

Poor Duhallan-sama, he got dungoofed. I think he'll die from the shock of learning that they had just forgot about him and Darkness curse was lifted a minute after he left.

I also kinda felt bad for the blonde guy. He had just been deludedby Aqua. On the other hand, the way they kept bullying him was hilarious.

RPG player mentality when you get a sword that's useless to you but worth a lot of money, you sell it.
The i think that's general traders mentality as well.
Anyway this episode was great seeing a narcissist suffer is always nice.

And seeing Aqua in that cage was very funny.


iirc it didn't even sell for a lot because the sword can only be used by the original guy so might as well just consider it being thrown away out of spite


Can't keep with all the danmachi references

LOL I CAN'T BELIEVE AQUA WENT THROUGH WITH THE CAGE PLAN XD The first part was hilarious ... then the second part came along with this new character Kyouya, the "chosen hero" (according to him, anyway). Obviously Aqua forgot who he was completely, he has this "cursed sword" (which I thought would totally screw him over in the dragon fight), which promptly gets stolen by Kazuma when he's challenged to a duel ... and well, obviously you'd sell a sword you don't need, right? :P In any case Dullahan returns, annoyed that nobody's visited him in his castle ... this is gonna be good XD

Finally caught up to the latest episode and I have to say it's been entertaining so far. This series strongest point has been the voice actors for me. The way the jokes and the humorous scenes are delivered by each character might be even funnier than the content of the scenes themselves.

This episode was pretty good although I would still consider the one with the frogs to be my favorite.
Funniest scene was when that new hero came towards Aqua calling her his goddess and all that, and she was all like "oh yeah yeah I remember, you're... that guy". In general she's been a very fun character and was the source of some of the funniest moments in the series.

Selling that cursed sword... Might have been able to extort Kyouya for more money for it.
Brings to mind the stolen knife in Danmachi. However, in Danmachi, the thief was offered so little for it that they opted to hold on to it temporarily.
I'd say Log Horizon features a much better cursed sword.

I take it the story uses this guy to mock MMO players who buy a weapon with power far in excess of their understanding of the game mechanics. ...Also, if you can beat a boss in one hit, you're playing in a zone way too easy for the level of your equipment.

So I was thinking. His Luck stat is high enough, that he's able to steal the most valuable belonging of his target, with a 100% success rate thus far (From girls' panties, to a powerful weapon of a warrior).

Shouldn't that also affect the critical hit rate of his attacks as well? Seeing as this parallel world is based out of an RPG-game setting, you'd think the RNG on the damage he does and such to his enemies would also be favorable...
I suspect his other stats are so low that he'd be ineffective in combat even with the RNG on his side.

My tummy hurts and my neck is dry... I had laught trough the entire episode XD

I loved how the MC solved the duel, that was like a hell of a plot twist. I trough:''Ok this again. Another 1 episode long duel... lets see how the MC win this...'' and while I was about to finish by trought the MC was like: ''OK'' -KO. It was really unexpected, and I loved it.
Also, am I the only one who thinks that Dullahan actually just wants friends/guests?! I gave up on taking this anime in serious, so I am expecting anything but actual action.

I actually couldn't laugh at depressed Aqua. That was really sad :(

Besides that episode was gold and spot on. Of course if the sword is useless you sell it XD genersl rules of RPG.

Steal skill with Max luck stat is pretty clutch haha. Darkness wanting to jump in the cage was probably one of the funniet parts of the episode. That and Kuzuma with his steal skill to the ladies ;)

Poor Aqua, those alligators were basically mini dragons! That was rough.

And finally someone knew Aqua! I can't believe she forgot that guy she sent before. He seems like he's getting stronger and becoming a real warrior unlike our hero... I don't really get why they all hate him so much.

Ok, watching this episode gave me a plot idea, which could work really well for some drama/SoL harem anime. Basically, the MC is the friend of the guy who is "supposed" to be main character. It's not like he got super good looks or personality or anything, still the girls totally fawn over him in a way they would in a typical harem. At the same time, they treat the 'actual' MC like they would any other ordinary boy. The MC is just as average looking as his friend, yet he got no girls interested in him. So yeah, he is bitter about it. At the same time, he has a lot more actual chemistry with his girls, than he does with them. Either that, or he has only one girl who is genuinely interested in him (and is neutral to the harem dude) That sort of story. I wonder if it is already been done. Oregairu had a little similar approach, but not quite like what I'm talking about. If done well, this could be totally a masterpiece imo.

Well, that traumatized Aqua pretty well. Good job, Kazuma. I felt bad for her though. It's like seeing death over and over again right before your eyes.

And Aqua had Kyouya fooled pretty well, too. He probably thinks she is some sweet ojou-sama character, when she is anything but that.

Lmao Kazuma is awesome. "Okay, I'm in. Steal!"

"God blow" LMAO

Best episode so far.

There were some great scenes this episode. Especially Aqua rocked some. Still not amazed by this anime till now.
I guess I expected a bit more seriousness. I wonder where the series will go, and if they'll somewhat take care of the Devil lord.

With all the slapstick, it becomes easy to overlook two things:

1. Aqua actually admitted to having fun with Kazuma
2. Kazuma is still being genuinely mean to her at times =(

Best part of this show for me was still Aqua vomotting rainbows when she's drunk.

Nope he's just relying on that sword for 100%. Also, contrary to Kazuma who is swarmed by weird but oddly capable female party members against his will, that guys is using the advantage the sword grants him to actively attract a harem novice groupies, while still pretending to be the white knight. In other words, he's an actual douche.

Hmm, I see you point, but Kazuma stealing girls underwear is not any better/worse in my opinion, even if I lived in a magical world that would be really violating/horrible. Both guys seem like douches to me...

Also, contrary to Kazuma who is swarmed by weird but oddly capable female party members against his will, that guys is using the advantage the sword grants him to actively attract a harem novice groupies, while still pretending to be the white knight. In other words, he's an actual douche.


Wish they'd show a few more sweet/kinder moments of Aqua. Even just a pinch more before the anime ends :P

"RR break/leave it to me" in ep. 1 and where she admits she's enjoying her stay with the party.

She could be condescending/lying but they seemed genuine due to how she was voiced at those moments.
