THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Haha, "Game Start". I noticed they did the introduction in a Star Wars-like movie narrative style. Funny.

Really glad they didn't waste time reintroducing all the characters again. Darkness is still such a masochist. Kazuma and Aqua's character chemistry is amusing just like the way I remember from the first season. Even with Kazuma trapped in a jail cell, she still tries to help him.

"Dead or alive"
Lmao. Pretty happy to see the show return again this Winter especially with Megumi being part of the jury with Darkness and Aqua.

The party of weirdoes is back and it started of great.
From the looks of it the party lost everything tho and the have to start over ones again.
The question is how will they do it this time.

Also the court was funny.

Watched half the raw so far. Channeling my weeb to understand what they are saying lol, for instance the joke about the lock being a cipher and kazuma taking the blame for the damage of teleporting the destroyer core.
I swear though, Aqua will end up wearing the frilly skirt around her neck by the end of the season.

Oh my God. That was so hilarious I could die! Damn it. Deen delivers 2017 with a great funny start.

I think there's a few differences from the novel. Like wasn't Dust supposed to be in Kazuma's cell? I guess they cut him out because they didn't adapt him really well in the first season.

But that was amazing. Voice acting is top notch and the OP song's dance is cute.

The Star Wars and RPG opening was also amazing. Keep it up Deen!

The part where Kazuma has to tell the truth but ending up saying lies was so funny. Especially when he started getting cocky only to be shoot down by Sena. Also when Sena keep on cut off eye witness' testimony to make up her case was really good.

I'm guessing some people itt are japanese/in japan. The raw is available on some sites, won't say where, probably against the rules, but not with subtitles. It's not 10:30 PST yet at the moment of this posting so yeah. Probably gonna stop spoiling myself with the raw and wait for a proper release.

And here they are poor again.

Okay first off, those password entries had me dying and I smiled so hard to see the Star Wars-ish crawl right after xD

Man I missed this series so much, every minute of this episode had be laughing like a crazy person and I almost forgot how stupid Aqua is and the fact that Darkness is a masochist and Megumin's explosion gimmick

The ending was funny yet messed up though, poor Kazama got screwed in every way possible lol....Looking forward to seeing where this arc goes and learning more about Darkness' family

And dat OP is hilariously glorious xDDD

Oh boy, bad-luck Kazuma. "Game Start" just for sleeping inside a prison. LOL
And then got interview or maybe it's a interrogated(?) about his real self and then facing the Trial.
Goodbye Kazuma, this episode will be your last appearance.Or so I thought it would be.

What a great start this anime really knows how to make someone laugh. poor kazuma this episode was mostly about how much they can screw with him or rather how much humiliation he can handle. the interrogation scene had to be my favorite part of this episode (that and aqua's attempts at trying to get kazuma out of prison) especially how he later managed to turn it around. I think the art style changed but I'm not 100% sure maybe I'm just seeing things.

That ending was brutal. Is is just me or does the animation look even worse than in s1? I never thought that would be possible, but I guess it's because of the new character designs, meh. Pretty strong and crazy start. The voice acting continues to be top tier. I overall missed these idiots and their dumb derpy fantasy world. The OP is hilarious.

The imprisonment and trial of Kazuma. XD He has done some pretty shitty stuff admittedly. XD At least the prosecutor was sexy as fuck! XD Pretty funny start to season 2. Alotta poorly drawn derpy faces though, wonder if they had enough time to work on this.

Best episode of the whole show IMO.

Could not stop laughing for the whole episode, absolutely bonkers + EVEN BIGGER DEEN QUALITY which makes the series so charming.

OBJECTION!

The faces were CRAZY! XDDDD

Star Wars opening, i can't even.

Strong start of the season. Loved the pause screen, the password name, and the trial. I may give the second season the same score I gave the first season if it keeps up (7/10) but it's way too early to judge.

Well, it's back, and it's started in absolutely fantastic fashion with perhaps one of the, if not the very, best episodes of the show so far. I was laughing the whole way through, even into the hilarious new OP.

I've missed this show, but I'm so glad it's back now. Let's enjoy another 10 weeks with these misfits.

Also, looks like the frogs are returning next week. Hell yes.

Hilarious episode, Great start to the 2nd season. :D

The whole Kazuma imprisoned segment was hilarious, I laugh everytime he says Soorey and throws the item out the window. XD

Interrogation was epic and funny. XD Kazuma got so smug in the middle and got wrecked at the end. XD
The trial was hilarious as well, The entire episode was so damn funny.

Also I loved the pause/continue screens. I hope the keep them through the episodes.

Poor Kazuma, He lost everything at the end. :3
Can't wait for more wacky comedy.

It's a bit of a different feeling seeing this after reading the light novels compared to the first season when I hadn't, but I can't say the enjoyment is any less because of it. I may recall many of the gags beforehand, but the voice acting and 10/10 epic reaction faces add so much charisma to the whole thing lol

In any case, wonderful to finally see it back

It's good to have a good laugh again, ah this entire episode was so stupid and unreasonable.

The parody of "hero being locked up in the prison" was absolute GOLD though.


As excellent as this anime is though, I won't turn blind eye to the messy art at times. There were few moments in which I was really astonished how badly given scene was drawn.

Then again no one really will watch this series for quality animation.(Except !!explosion!!)

Looks like they're going to spend the season trying to get enough money to pay back the debt, probably going to end with some huge thing that pays it all off in one go but it'll still be a great ride.

Okay-ish episode i guess. I don't really want to be "that guy" but honestly, i didn't laugh this time, and i really liked the first season's comedy.

But here i think it was...idk, forced? the star wars opening was pretty funny tho, but i didn't laugh how i did previously in the prequel.

Well, maybe it will get better or maybe I'm getting too old for this type of comedy.

Lol this was a pretty funny episode, seeing these idiots doing wacky things again is always a fun time.

I liked the Star Wars-like opening segment as well.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

LOL! Funny episode as usual. Welcome back.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Nice to see this again, this is a pretty good arc and there is tons of fun things to come. I wonder how they are going to handle a few interactions to come. Looks like they'll cover the debt arc this whole season.

Also DEEN seems to have fully accepted their wacky animation style and went full in with it for comedic purpose, might get overused as time goes but the dialogue gets pretty funny anyway so it should be fine.

Yeah i've definitely noticed that it's kind of different to the first season? I think at least, I watched it a while back. But it's still good enough :D

The goofballs are back and I couldn't be happier.

This episode didn't miss a beat, this was just as funny as the first season. I had a giant smile all the way though. That Star Wars crawl couldn't have come at a better time.

You don't ever really see the consequences of characters actions in anime often, I just can't believe Kazuma has to pay all of that back. I can only assume they're all going to have to go on a multitude of ridiculous quests to pay it back. I really hope that means we'll get to see some exploration of the world this season!

I can't put into words how much I missed this show! I want to see the next episode already!

The first segment with the prison lock fail wasn't funny but the rest was pretty good.
Why does this show still have this low quality animation? This show is as popular as Re Zero and even has collab manga and novel with it, the low quality animation has to be a meme at this point. It's definitely one of the most popular Isekai shows.
Hopefully we can get more than 10 episodes this time around.

The art quality is so bad as to render it nearly unwatchable, which is a shame, since it's quite a funny show.

Well, that may be cause it's terrible. God, I could hardly stand watching the first episode, constantly being distracted by how terrible the characters look. There may be people liking this art style but I doubt there are many.

Nope, officially 10 episodes, again.

Too bad, come on Deen/TMX you're lowballing the animation and even the episode count, they could've at least had the decency of giving us a full 1 cour of this comedy greatness.

Really funny episode, I forgot about Darkness's family. They're really going all out with the wacky art style this time, but it fits.

Obviously none of them are smart enough to think of this, but they should've just let him get executed, then have Aqua resurrect him again.

Great, great first episode. The animation can be a little off at times but it's a very minor complaint. Very excited for the second season!
