I've read the manga version this definitely Akatsuki-sensei works, Kuzu MC, good looking heroine outside but regretable inside( i mean Snow:would like to sell her body to fatass if gives her a good amount of fortune), and yet still laughable time to time. The only flaw that i find it little disturbing is how author combine fantasy setting and modern setting, feels too unnatural( i mean in fantasy world the royal ritual who can make rain is machine with voice activation, chimera who can control ancient weapon that is robot)

Author of Konosuba, MC with Hachiman's face and Kazuma's personality. Well lets enjoy this seri!

Bloody hell, they are going to ruin this for me now when I checked the preview.
They seem to be making this some kind off a gag anime, which in my opinion, isn't one. The facial expressen on Combatant. 6 is too cartoonist and the voice should be more darker. At least in my opinion.

Lol this pv, the characters definitely remind me of Konosuba characters.
