Episodes seven, eight and nine (Aqua’s town arc) are horrendous. KonoSuba S2 makes only minimal progress. Its humor is taunting and its tone is nostalgic. I don’t know about you, but I find this show’s progress to be disappointing. Here’s my review of the show KonoSuba Season 2. Please consider it a warning before you turn off your TV, but I’m not in love with it.
Episodes 7,8,9 and 10 (Aqua’s town arc) are shamefully bad
It’s hard to believe KonoSuba has been a hit in Japan for two years now, but the last three episodes of Season 2 are embarrassingly bad. The storyline, despite the cliched premise, is still engaging and the characters likable enough. However, the arc between Aqua and her town is particularly bad.
The first episode of the town arc shows a town where Aqua is the king of the town, which is also the town of the Axis Church. Here, Aqua is constantly harassed by Axis worshipping people who look down on her because she worships Eris. It’s a shame this arc is so bad, but the ending – a zombie attack – is actually one of the best parts of KonoSuba Season 2.
Aqua’s town arc has some truly awful moments. Aqua is forced to fight the Demon King because her actions have corrupted them. She also has the ability to warp people, making them into her army. It’s a shame because the town’s actions have a terrible impact on the town. In fact, Episodes 7,8,9 and 10 (Aqua’s town arc) are shamefully bad KonoSuba Season 2.
In Episodes 7 and 8 (Aqua’s town arc), Kazuma’s life is in danger. He accidentally puts on a choker which grants wishes. Eventually, it will strangle him. He will die in four days. When Aqua sees this, she asks him to leave. He refuses, and Darkness and Megumin harass him to help him. Finally, Kazuma confesses. Afterwards, he gets angry and frightened, and the two of them end up throwing him out of the window.
The last few episodes of KonoSuba Season 2 are shamelessly bad. The first episode of this season has some excellent moments, but Episodes 7 and 8 (Aqua’s town arc) are shamefully bad. If you’re looking for a show that’s good but terrible, this is definitely the show for you.
KonoSuba S2’s progress is minimal
While KonoSuba S2 has a lot of promise, it doesn’t quite live up to its predecessor’s promise KonoSuba Season 2. While its plotline is as funny as ever and its characters are great, the pacing and structure are less than stellar. The final episodes introduce a new antagonist and the series’s clunkier tone. While I’m glad to see the series returning to the form it enjoyed playing as a kid, I’m not so sure about the future of the series.
While KonoSuba S2 doesn’t move much forward in plot, it does have its share of laughs and zany humor. The zany characters and dysfunctional cast are back and there’s more room for jokes than ever. Still, despite its flaws, the series remains a great watch and will continue to garner a large following. It’s worth the wait.
If Studio DEEN is contractually obligated to get other projects done before KonoSuba S2, the progress of this anime will be even more disappointing. The studio released 10 anime last year, including Neo Yokio and Season 4, and outsourced the Seven Deadly Sins to a smaller production company. This may explain why the studio hasn’t been able to release KonoSuba S2 until now.
As of February 2019, there’s no official release date for the KonoSuba movie. Despite the lack of official confirmation, the movie has a July 2021 release date in Japan. The movie will be available in English, and the release date will be announced closer to the movie’s premiere. Keep checking back as new news becomes available. The fans of KonoSuba are awaiting its release.
Its humor is taunting
The anime series KonoSuba is based on a light novel series written and illustrated by Akatsuki Natsume. The authors also created Sentouin Hakenshimasu! and Mangetsu no Jinrou. The first season was directed by Kanasaki Takaomi, who has also created the soundtracks for Devil May Cry and Darkstalkers.
The show is full of sexual and vulgar humor, but the manga has a better balance between taunting and fan service. Although the series relies on fan service to create a comic tone, it also knows how to use humor to its fullest effect. The show’s characters aren’t just thin jokes, though. Instead, they have more complex personalities and motivations than they’re given credit for.
The manga series was serialized and eventually ended with 17 volumes. There are now two seasons, and the anime series is also set to follow it. It’s not clear what material the next season will contain. However, the show has become a huge global phenomenon. The popularity of KonoSuba spikes around the time of new content announcements. This means that fans everywhere are eagerly awaiting its next episode.
The manga’s humor is also taunting and a bit of a parody of fantasy anime, which often fails to create a strong storyline. It uses fantasy elements and RPG elements, including isekai, to highlight the flaws of these characters. For example, Kazuma’s harem and stats are ridiculously low, and the show vindicates many villains.
The manga’s jokes fall flat, but the anime manages to pull off more of them. During the premiere episode, the anime made reference to the opening theme of the first season by mimicking Megumin’s voice. The anime also plays on the light novel’s chapters with end scenes and previews that harken back to its chapter-level storyline. One scene in particular harkens back to the novel’s chapters as the characters discuss Six’s corporate language.
Its tone is nostalgic
While the first season emphasized nostalgia, the second season remained faithful to the original manga. Fans of the original manga will likely want to revisit the series for its nostalgic tone. As an added bonus, Season 2 has a strong fanbase with fans of all ages and tastes. The show’s fans will be delighted to see more new content from Studio Deen as the series continues. However, the medium in which Season 3 will be released is still unclear. Until then, fans can be patient and enjoy Season 2 as it is.
KonoSuba Season 2’s tone feels nostalgic and is a pleasant side dish to the anime. While the anime itself is often mocking of JRPG fantasy tropes, the humor is deadpan and the characters are well-rounded. Despite the show’s light novel roots, the characters’ strengths and weaknesses are clearly defined. For instance, Aqua is slow to catch on and is a total crybaby, yet she is actually a goddess.
The anime is visually charming, but the animation isn’t the best. While it’s certainly more refined than its predecessor, the animation still feels choppy. The series isn’t a perfect remake, but it has a few things that fans will appreciate. For starters, the show’s art style isn’t the cleanest. Some scenes are intentionally lower in quality for comedic purposes.
