Konosuba started off with a great premise “What if you were to die now but offered a chance to live again in a different world?” Would you accept? This actually is a great way of getting your audience hooked. Given the options of going to heaven, being a spirit without a form at peace or continue living in a world of fantasy, everybody will definitely pick the latter.

Now within the new world, Kazuma Satou starts off his new life. Then reality hits and he doesn’t have any gold nor is he equipped to do some adventuring. Watch has our protagonist strive to become the adventurer he had only experienced playing games in his old world by first earning some gold by doing manual labor, obtain a suitable lodging and taking care of a powerful “Arch Priest” who has top tier stats but has below average intelligence.

The way Studio Deen, the studio behind Konosuba, made Konosuba is simply well done. To be honest at episode 1 I was enthralled by the montage sequence of Satou and Aqua’s daily routine as laborers that even I forgot that that wasn’t their goal in that life, which is to defeat a demon king.  The story build up is great although the anime suggest that killing the demon king is their goal, you can clearly see that the story of the anime is actually character progression. Yes you have read right their goal is but lore within that world in which they share with everybody living in the same world. The story progresses with character development and their misadventures giving you an in-depth look on what it is like to live in such a world that many of us who play MMORPGs wished at some point.

The humor is superb but can be quite repetitive. Running jokes such as the scenes with the giant frogs are very predictable but it still works. I still laughed more than i should have.

I see konosuba as a long term anime with the first season being an introduction of the plot and the characters. With season 2 already going this year no doubt konosuba will progress more into its characters like backstories and such. It’s a good and refreshing kind of look into an Anime with a fantasy genre. Sure there are many more series that has the same premise but. I can bet that Konosuba would be the funniest of them all. Since these kinds of stories tend to revolve around drama.

Konosuba is the type of anime that will make you feel great with its fantastic humor, charming characters and a game like world that I know you would want to live in if you are given the chance. The only negative thing I could see in this Anime is that it only has 13 episodes for 1 season. I literally watched it in 1 night. Hopefully the second season would be even greater.


RATING: EXPLOSION!


IT IS PRETTY HARD TO MAKE A REVIEW WHILE TRYING TO AVOID SPOILERS. I MEAN, IT’S A REVIEW SO IT HAS TO HAVE SPOILERS IN ORDER FOR OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND THE WHOLE THING. I TRIED TO LESSEN THE IMPACT OF THE SPOILERS VIA PARAPHRASING TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA BUT NOT RUIN THE WHOLE THING.
