1. It is a point of discussion. Experience with the medium is intrinsic to understanding parodies because parodies rely on the viewer understanding the references and knowing the things that are being made fun of. If I had no idea who King Arthur is, Monty Python wouldn't have been funny.
2. I was confused by how illogical everything you wrote is because you legitimately just spouted a large stream of ridiculous bullshit that is unsupported by any feasible evidence, like implying that KonoSuba is "a parody lacks the elements of parody", which is a completely meaningless and illogical statement. You can't make claims that are simply not true. Never at one point did I say I didn't understand what you wrote.
3. Unlike story, characters, music, or art, animation is barely a subjective thing. There is objectively good and objectively bad animation since the quality of animation can be empirically proven using frame rates and other such numbers.
4. The fact that you literally cannot bring in any sort of evidence and ignored every point I made about why KonoSuba is a good parody speaks volumes to how worthless your argument is, as it simply falls apart when confronted with evidence. The only point you've made is that "parodies a show or a multitude of shows for being bad by being bad it is a worthless, meaningless effort", which is not only absurdly grammatically incorrect, but also a bizarre claim to make. To make such a claim, you have to literally ignore everything I've typed. To say that KonoSuba wasn't funny to you and that's why you disliked it is perfectly reasonable, but to call it "worthless, meaningless" is irrational.

Gintama is unfunny rubbish and forcing myself through about 50 episodes of it was one of the worst decisions of my life.

Anyway, I am extremely confused by everything you have written besides for the sentence before the last paragraph. Everything you have written is legitimately factually untrue. The whole purpose of KonoSuba is to make fun of tropes present in isekais. Maybe you didn't realize that since you only have 91 shows completed, thus not being exposed to the things it parodies (isekai light novels and their adaptations), but here's a list of things that KonoSuba makes fun of:

  • Pretty much every Isekai has the MC reincarnated as some OP genius who has an amazing life, while Kazuma's days of being a NEET gamer in no way help him succeed in the new world
  • The same thing can be said about all of the other characters; they are all in one way or other over-powered, yet they are still useless
  • Kazuma's death is a straight-up joke about Mushoku Tensei
  • Side characters are constantly jealous of Kazuma's "harem", even though Kazuma's actual relationships with them are dysfunctional and he doesn't enjoy their presence
  • This guy is a parody of pretty much every isekai MC; unlike Kazuma, he is reborn as an OP character with an actual harem. Yet, he's pretty much completely useless without his magically overpowered sword
  • I view the lack of plot progression as an attack on shows like SAO, who are supposed to have an overarching story yet turn into some slice of life show where every episode is a filler

So from that list, it makes fun of overpowered isekai main characters, the very idea of isekais itself, harems, and the lack of direction/focus on the overarching plot that is common to 90% of isekai light novels. These are just off the top of my head; I'm sure there are many more examples. And that's ignoring the fact that the whole show also functions as a D&D parody. I would even go so far to call KonoSuba a deconstruction of isekais, rather than a parody. Anyway, as I said, KonoSuba is supposed to be bad. It parodies isekais by employing every isekai trope imaginable in the dumbest and most ridiculous way possible. That's what both deconstructions and parodies are meant to do, and that's what KonoSuba does. Though my favorite part of your review is that you gave a 3/10 for the art section of one of the best shows in terms of animation to ever exist. Really cool.

A parody is an imitation that is exaggerated for effect. KonoSuba mocks poorly written isekais (aka 95% of them). As such, the story purposely goes nowhere and all the characters are one dimensional. That’s what a parody is. I legitimately can’t think of one well-written parody. Their purpose is to be bad.
