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.


I would agree with you if we were talking about other series, but those poorly drawn and even not so well animated scenes(mostly faces and bodies) really suit this series and had to the comedy. Is it only me who thinks that? xD
I mean, "bad art" and "bad animation" it's what you people have been calling it, but I don't really agree. if it fits the scene, if it fits the atmosphere of the moment, then it's not bad, it's different

Aaand, best opening of the season!

Agreed. It just dont feel right if the comedy combined with no game no life level of art. The watcher wont focus on the comedy but the art if they made it like that. Goofy and derpy is the most suitable for this kind of anime. And the creator agreed with the chara design. So its okay

I laughed my ass of the entire episode, which indicates that KonoSuba is back and better than ever (even if the designs are even more derpy than before). Glad to have this funny ass show back!

I think the art is that way on purpose, it adds to the comedic factor. Glad this show is still funny as shit.

Not as funny as the previous season but hey, it's just the first episode. I am sure it will get better.

Also, Megumin was and still the best girl despite it was Darkness who really shone in this episode.



As for the characters, each novel switches between the girls as a focus. Three (which is what this starts) is about Darkness, Four about Aqua, Five about Megumin, Six about a new character, Seven about Darkness, Eight about Aqua, Nine about Megumin. While again, tastes differ and of course shippers will always ship, the good thing about each book is that you like each girl (and Kazuma) more.


Eight about Eris, not Aqua.

Did the art quality become worse than season 1 or what?

If you were to, out of jealousy, inflict some unjust violence on me, I would fight back with no hesitation. I'm a guy who does what he has to do! You'd do well to remember that!" - Satou Kazuma

The third book ain't really my fav, but pacing is pretty nice, and tbh they did the jail break scene well. (Best scene of the book, and actually best scene of the joint of vol 3 (this one) and vol 5 (Megumin.))
The minimum amount of the usual Kazuma snide comments is understandable; They are reintroducing everyone here. The usual self-depreciating style is steal clear and well out there, especially the interrogation scene.




an anime made in less than a year. Of course it would be horrible visually.
And DEEN, instead of doing some self-reflection, chooses to continue that as a joke -_-
Heuh DEEN...



ps.: can't wait til Vanir gets here.

Yes and no, yes it does give Eris a chance to shine (brilliantly I will say), but at the same time it marks the start of Kazuma understanding Aqua (and what motivates her) and is pivotal for his starting to acknowledge her.

But while I know this will not be animated this season, I really really hope to witness the dangers of heat stroke and why it is important to avoid it!

Main focus is on Eris, whatever you might say, considering the ending, request and all. So yeah, it's pretty much an Eris vol(and Kazuma also realizes how she feels for the first time), Aqua is pretty much the deuteragonist here even tho he sympathizes a bit with her at the end(and then it hardly matters in future vol).

This show is so freakin funny. Everyone is so pathetic lol. Kazutrash was the best. Also the personality changes for the prosecutor were spot on, as soon as Kazuma thought he was taking charge she shifted right back.

We also got a glimpse of the truth behind Aqua!! They have yet to be seen!!!!

I feel bad for Kazuma in this episode, glad he was freed.

I hope his guys meet Darkness again.

Yes, Vol. 4 is where one of the main antagonist related to their upcoming mascot will be introduced. So I doubt it will be skipped.

I'm so glad this anime is back! Seriously one of the best and funniest of 2016 imo.
This episode was hilarious as usual, from the star wars intro to Kazuma's prosecution trial, hopefully this continues like this or it picks up the pace and gets better along the way.
Also, there are a few notable cases where the art design looks weird and awkward...though I don't think it has changed much from last season, so I'm not too bothered by it.

tho the derpy faces actually help with how ludicrous (on a good way) this show is haha

Exactly. The derpy art style actually adds to this show more than it takes away, and I'm pretty sure it was done on purpose. Want proof? Look at Rakugo, an anime that doesn't make studio Deen nearly as much money as Konosuba does, yet it has perfectly fine art (i.e. no derpy art style).

It's not a budget issue at all, it's just the art style that they chose for Konosuba, which, like I said, adds more to it than it takes away.


I agree, the derpy art style fits the comedy (for me at least) and I can see this being done intentionally.
Lol

Amazing first episode. I missed these guys so much !

The star wars-style intro was pure gold. Poor Kazuma's in for lots of troubles again. I mean he avoided execution but still ended up being poor again. AND still owes a debt to the kingdom.

I had ridiculously good laughs throughout the whole episode, but Aqua trying to break Kazuma out of jail was the best part.

As for the animation part :

NanoRin said:
And like others have said, I can't imagine Konosuba drawn and animated any other way than it is, even though it feels somewhat different this season, it's still just part of the charm of this show for me and only adds to the comedy imo. Whether it's intentional or not... Can't wait for next week!


^ This. Konosuba without the derpy faces 'n stuff is not the Konosuba I'd enjoy.
Anyways, looking forward to the next episodes ! Hoping to see more development about Darkness' family.

5/5

Hilarious, though like mentioned already, the drop in animation quality is noticable at a glance.
The derpy faces are still something I love though. :P

I still wonder wether Aqua wears panties or not...

Great start. The ass shot of Aqua felt forced lol. Was there actually a drop in animation quality? Only the in-between frames like when you pause at a random moment look weird- but you can say it adds to the goofy quality of the anime. The close ups are fine.

Lol these retards. Kazuma gets arrested on suspicion of having links to the demon King. Everyone tries to help him but then they all back off when the prosecutor says that she can imprison them all. Such friends. Lol that lie detection part. Kazuma was forced to tell the truth about everything and got trapped when he realized that Wiz was part of the demon king's army at some point. And the prosecutor brought up Kazuma's completely unrelated panty stealing to try and prove him guilty. He was also accused for all the stuff Megumin and Aqua did lol. Darkness saves the day but she could have done more given her family is close to the King. Obviously they were trying to convict a clearly innocent guy just to prevent that Lord from any embarrassment. She could have picked that thing up and wrapped things up peacefully. Oh well, they're all idiots after all. Now Kazuma has to repay the debt he now has due to the damages caused. Great hilarious episode.

Lmao the first episode barely came out, and people already made reviews on it, based on this single episode alone... That's MAL for ya I guess.

Fantastic first episode, still fun as its first season, the art was a little meh at some points... and its very noticeable, they might've cut the budget for it, so that they can produce more episodes? Who knows. Hope this season its as great as the first one, or even better.

But outrageous!!! You can't compromise on Megumin's explosion scenes, even if every other scene is stick man.
