//My first review. I hope you like it :) Try my best to give an honest opinion
//won't spoil anything
//i will be reviewing it based on story, art, sound, character, enjoyment and overall, as it is rated.
Summary: Wow. How do i put this? It's awesome! To be honest guys, i never had expected it to be the sort of anime that it is. In 3 words, it's crazy, funny and enjoyable. If you like an all around funny yet relaxing anime, or better yet, if you just want good laugh, i say go for it! You won't regret it, trust me!
Story: Konosuba is the type of
anime that is made purely for crazy laughs. There's not much in terms of story as that isn't the anime's selling point. If you're looking for a great plot line, there's always shows like re zero and akame, where a great plot makes the anime itself. This is not the case with Konosuba. The anime take a more relaxing and unique pace, mixed with a sense of comedy that is normally only found in school life animes. However, even with the absence of a good plot, the story itself does not feel boring nor does the comedic relief feel forced, unlike many anime nowadays, sadly. Every minute of it makes you want even more! xD
Art: Konosuba's art style is quite good. It doesn't fall back on the times nor does it feel out of place. Its art style fits the fantasy genre perfectly, and allows the person watching it to feel at ease. The visuals itself aren't so striking that it hurts the eyes, nor does it feel bland. Konosuba knows exactly how to balance different art styles to fit the different moods (Fast paced mv, chibi characters). Only reason i'm giving it 8 is because of the overusage of jelly facial expressions (i don't know what is it called ><). But still, the disgusted expressions is what makes Konosuba Konosuba!
Sound: Another factor that makes the show so great, is the sound and music. Konosuba pairs their osts to the cutscenes really really well. Prove of this is in the first episode itself. It doesn't feel out of place from the show or timing whatsoever. Even the character themes itself are a pleasure to listen to (i mean, just listen to megumin's one!). It's because of this good implementation of music and cutscene from the very 1st episode itself makes a heavy impression on the watcher. And it doesn't disappoint, even until the very last episode. The op theme is pleasing to listen to as well! (no spoilers but i really love the last episode soundtrack + mv)
Character: Very rarely does an anime has a cast of characters where everyone is likeable and has a distinct unique personality. Every character in konosuba is distinctly different from one another, even the side characters. Yet, even with such differing personalities, none of them feel boring or even less than likeable. From the main characters, to villains, to side characters, you can't hate ANY of them! All of them are funny, crazy and lovable in their own way. Btw, megumin lovable char for the win!
Enjoyment: 100% enjoyable. Not 1 minute of it feels boring.
Overall: Apart from the lack of story development, it really doesn't disappoint as a relaxing anime for casual watchers. All in all, i recommend it to anybody who enjoys casual, funny comedy animes.
