It's Wednesday, time for the new episode.
If you're curious, I probably won't be editing anything until volume 9 comes out. I'm busy with... other things.
Who is this useless slut bunny?
I will feel nothing but dread until we get season 2.
By the way, the LNs are like $6 on Amazon Kindle. You guys should get them, it's not hard.
I'm worried they'll fuck up season 2. Since the first season was only ten episodes I don't think the studio were betting on Konosuba getting popular, and they'll probably end up doing something stupid with season 2 because of it.
Is that an adult Megumin? Crimson demons get pretty stacked don't they?
I just hope they continue off of the last 3 or 4 episodes. There was more story into it.
I don't know much about the LNs, but as long as it keeps to parodying RPGs and fantasy cliches while staying fun and silly I'll be happy with it.
You are not going to edit the unedited part of vol 8 first? Chapter 3 and below aren't edited yet right?
He asked around earlier and most people said they wanted him to start from the top.
Remember, no sexual
Was it rape?
That's Yunyun, the village weirdo.
She isn't chuuni
Waiting to get her tits slapped.
Damn it most people are idiot. There's no guarantee the user would stick around editing 8~ volume especially since the middle part are actually decent enough.
If anything you fix the volume with the shitties editing first, Vol. 8 and Megumin's spinoff.
Stupid generalshitter, I bet the people that ask him to edit from the first volume didn't even read the LNs.
Cecily ignored me and happily buried her nose into the bed sheet and sniffed heavily.
I'm expecting there to be changes like in the first season but it still turned out great.
Are they going to do Kazuma in jail?
Why they would not?
Kazuma freezing the window so Megumin can't escape
Goddamn why do I find this generic LN so entertaining
The preview for the OVA showed Yunyun in Wiz's shop. I thought they might skip ahead or move some things around. It would be a good start for the second season, but with the OVA I wonder how they will handle it.
Lolis make the best love interests. Prove me wrong. Protip:
Mitsurugi gets lamer every appearance. Having his wing cut didn't seem to slow Hoost down one bit.
Because it isn't generic. It's also surprisingly well written, as far as LNs go.
These threads are going to get super depressing soon. I just hope volume 10 gets translated not too long after its out.
wouldn't go as far as saying it is well written, but I guess your right on the ln not being generic. It's one of those generic "not like other" lns.
Hoost isn't your average grunt. He's pretty much an endgame boss, it's actually impressive that Mitsurugi was able to wound him despite getting ambushed.
And that wound was how everyone managed to escape that fight alive, too.
The real funny part is that later
you find out that Darkness and Chris were able to fight Hoost by themselves, and Aqua casually solos him.
I did say as far as LN go. But at this point you're being facetious and aren't willing to admit that it's a genuine fun read.
They'll just give a quick synopsis of her character and add something funny and it'd be fine.
The writer has a set plan for how the story should go and where it will end, which is more than you can say for like 90% of other LNs.
Shit like the punchlines for volumes 1 and 3 coming back all the way in volumes 6 and 7 is something you'd never see in your average LN.
And that wound was how everyone managed to escape that fight alive, too.
This point is actually pretty notable. In the main story we're used to having Aqua and her literally god tier healing capabilities around, so no casualty raids on even the strongest opponents aren't that weird.
But this is before Kazuma and Aqua formed the party. Anyone who dies just fucking dies, game over. Mitsurugi was apparently able to stall Hoost long enough for (hopefully) everyone with him to get away, and that's after he got blasted with high level magic.
I mean, sure, in the main story that wouldn't be impressive either since we're familiar with Darkness' idiotically high defensive stats too, but not everyone's like her!
I am not shure that the plot is 100% set already but each joke being also a setup for a later punchline is definetly a strenght of the LN.
It also never relies on stupidity/misunderstandings but rather character flaws to drive the interpersonal humor.
no more fanfic after volume 9
Fucking why? Yen Press is godawful at translating and fuckers are so slow that I'll be dead before they release vol 3.
Don't do this to me, I thought the whole "fanfic" deal was to avoid Yen Press's faggotry.
"Darkness called. But I was on the phone so I missed her. I tried to *69 Darkness, but her machine picked up. I yelled, "Pick up the phone, Darkness!" but she ignored me. Darkness must have been screening her calls."
What is Vanir's spin-off like? Vol. 1 is flashback and Vol. 2 new things?
Vanir's spinoff is basically all of the big side characters (and Aqua) getting some time in the spotlight. It's actually really nice, because it's rare for a LN's side characters to be interesting enough to carry a story without the MC nearby.
The stars of each chapter are:
1. Dust and Yunyun
4. The succubi
Chapter 4 is awesome, by the way.
Aqua accidentally finds out about the succubi and gets ready to purge the shit out of them. In comes Vanir, who may not be particularly fond of them but is still their lord so he's not going to stand by and let them die. Aqua proceeds to remind everyone she isn't a complete joke and murders Vanir like four times in the ensuing battle. She's eventually pacified, and Vanir leaves one parting shot: he can see that in the future, Aqua will come back to the succubi and apologize in tears.
She does, because someone tells Kazuma.
The LN is an adaption of an already finished WN. It's pretty much a final draft.
All the characters are super interesting. It's nice that they get fleshed-out like that.
I'm not saying it's not a fun read, if that was the case I wouldn't be reading it right now. Just saying it's nothing special, probably the only reason I'm so into it is because it appeals to all the things I like.
If only Megumin didn't cockblock it or disturbed by other at vol.5, this would be happen
well she still has a chance right?
I am at volume 6 so far and it appears she is in the lead unless Kazuma like Iris more than an imouto
Cecily is scum. But then again it should already be obvious.
Fuck off ESL-kun.
She has a chance but not if she keeps fucking it up.
I can't wait for vol 9 where nothing happens at all.
well she still has a chance right?
In vol 8 kazuma is 100% certain he's become a harem protagonist, and believes he's on the Darkness and Megumin route. He's resolved to drag it out as long as possible to see if he can add anymore girls to the harem.
shit just cracks me up.
She still have high chance despite always fucked it up
there is no lead see
megumin and darkness are in the same boat.
hell the WN was open end between the two
Well, he was mentioned Megumin when talking to Darkness in that situation, though yeah Megumin's value is lowered because she fucked up her all of her chance.
Also, isn't the WN kinda rushed from what I heard?
Her scummyness just makes her more endearing.
I thought the whole "fanfic" deal was to avoid Yen Press's faggotry
Kadokawa DMCA'd Skythewood's page because he was translating Konosuba.
Skythewood created a "fanfic" which had extactly the same content as the translation of Konosuba, but since it's a "fanfic" they can't really complain about copyright infringement as far as I know.
I thought he did to avoid Yen Press shitting up yet another translation project, but it seems he was just doing it because they DMCA'd him before they actually licenced Konosuba.
And now he is stopping the translations once vol 9 is done and we'll have to way DECADES for the lazy faggots at Yen Press to gives us a low quality translation.
So, fuck Yen Press (again).
*did it to avoid
*we'll have to wait
thanks a lot for the long and detailed explanation
Konosuba is my first LN ever and at this point I assumed "fanfic" was just a memeword for LN
have a >: Megumin as a token of apretiation
Which vol 8 fanfic should I read? Sinenormie/Akatsuki natsumi or blitzblast?
Are you implying that BlitzBlast's version isn't what Akatsuki originally wrote or something?
Kazuma fucked up all his chances with Darkness as much Megumin does with him.
She does have some fine abs.
Didn't realize it until you said it. This is kinda like a hint, their way of thinking also similar, even though it's not exactly same.
Also, is it true that the author once said "Aqua is the main heroine, while Megumin is the true heroine".
Or is it just someone bullshit
aqua has arm gloves
this. the author basically is a troll as far as ships go but this is the point of konosuba.
cancerous haremfags still hugboxing over this garbage
gr8 b8 m8! i r8 8/8
She puts them on for work.
I don't know, she usually has sleeve things like in the anime. I might only have been for the trial.
Just confused, since there's 2 epubs on the mega drive I found in the comments on the fanfic site.
if thats how a Crimson Demon looks fully developed then sign me in for Megumin
Well here's the same passage from both of them.
“From you… I gained a lot of happy, refreshing, sad, and angry memories. As the daughter of a noble family, I originally won’t have such experiences. If I never met you, I wouldn’t have been able to travel with everyone and experience those dangerous adventures. The past year after I met you has been the happiest and most blessed time of my life.”
“I’ve… I’ve gained so many memories thanks to you. Happy ones, refreshing ones, sad ones, and angry ones, all thanks to you. As the daughter of a noble family, normally I’d never have been able to experience things like that. I’m sure that if I hadn’t met you, I’d never have been able to travel with everyone and enjoy all of those dangerous adventures. I want you to know, this past year since I’ve met you has been the happiest and most blessed time of my life.”
You pick which one you think's better. BB's edits were only from chapter 4 onwards, though.
What are you saying? Megumin is already fully developed.
Man this thread is dead compared to last week. Do people just not care about the spinoffs?
What is that filename supposed to mean?
Why does Sup Forums want to be the loli?
Lurk a little more, please.
But Megumin is a loli too. The connection to wanting to be the little girl isn't clear anyway.
Komekko a best.
Megumin is done growing. Remember, malnutrition stunts your growth.
wanting a new episode even though they ran out of ideas
Don't call her a little girl user
She's the number 1 killstealer of the Crimson Demon clan.
Vanir has it tough. At least he can zap wiz as much as he wants.
It'll sell! I know it!
I don't think a thousand years is enough.
Kazuma really should know by now not to act cocky at the climax. That'll show him. (at least he got some levels from the serenity girl)
Probably. The spin-offs aren't that interesting in my opinion, I stopped reading the Megumin spin-off at the 3rd chapter because I just wasn't interested anymore.
I'll probably go back and read them sometime after volume 9 is finished being translated since Yen Press won't catch up till 2020.
Is that an euphemism for fuck?
I will start the LNs today
how close are the main party of killing off the Demon King?
They killed a bunch of Demon Army Generals but they spend most of their time being lazy cunts and not even trying to kill him (mainly because they don't want to, the pro adventurers can do that while they enjoy the NEET life(.
They've killed a lot of them but they aren't exactly trying to kill them.
Usually they only end up killing one because they just happen to get involved with them.
They've got a pretty astonishing kill count between them, all things considered, but Kazuma managed to make it out of poverty so now he and Aqua have zero reason to stick with the Kill The Demon Lord thing.
I mean why do /they/ have to do it when there are so many other adventurers, right?
What subs do I use for this show?
They killed a bunch of Demon Army Generals but they spend most of their time being lazy cunts
They've killed a lot of them but they aren't exactly trying to kill them.
I think im gonna enjoy this shit
Is that a squid?
but Kazuma managed to make it out of poverty
He'll be back to being poor soon enough. And then he'll get rich again somehow.
Kazuma's only lost his fortune once, and that was because Vanir was being Vanir and wanted Kazuma to despair.
Vanir's a bro though so he planned it all out so that Kazuma would get his money back.
Kazuma and Aqua are busy travelling around town being nouveau-riche douchebags. I wish I had the quote for it.
AYYYY, this meal was the bomb. Take all this money and live it up
Thank you for paying and tipping the exact cost of the meal, sir & madame....
After Kazuma makes it big, the party has to find reasons to even get him out of the house. Dude's enjoying his new life and doesn't want to deal with anymore of that high risk adventurer bullshit.
Sure he's guaranteed to come back to life, but dying hurts.
He gets out of home by himself!
To visit the succubs shop
How strong is the party, anyway?
Mitsurugi is presumably supposed to be your average overpowered Sent To Another World MC, and he's constantly in the thick of things so you'd think his level would be really high by now. He's the most famous of the heroes so presumably he's the strongest person on the human side, too. So why is it that he hasn't seem to have killed a single Demon Lord General?
I mean sure, Kazuma's party is absurdly overspecialized, has Aqua, and are generally working together with a bunch of other people, but Mitsurugi should have the backing of an entire royal army. Why does he suck so much?
Was the succubus shop really unnecessary or someone else enjoy it too?
Killing the demon lord would probably destroy the economy in a world where a large amount of business is based around adventurers.
No, its a kid.
He doesn't suck, it's just that Kazuma's party has either such shit luck or such great luck that they always happen to be in the same place where a Demon Army General shows up.
The party is pretty strong anyway. Aqua is literally a god-tier priest which can bring people back from the dead and excorsise the shit our of everything; Darkness has ridiculous ammounts of endurance, to the point that she can tank pretty much everything and Megumin's Explosion spell can one-hit KO most of the enemies they come across (and when she can't, they just need to weaken the enemy till she can finish it off).
Kazuma isn't particularly powerful due to being an adventurer, but he is cunning as fuck and knows how to use the few supposedly shitty skills he has. He's basically a wild card, his main strenght isn't his diverse skills but his craftiness.
Monsters would continue existing even if they killed the Demon Lord, since even fucking cabbages are dangerous creatures in that world, so adventurers wouldn't lose their jobs.
Kazuma also has literal plot armor powers through having maxed out Luck.
Also is the Demon Lord any threatening for those of you that are advanced in the LN?
He doesn't seem to actively seek to harm cities or anything, but since I only watched the anime that starting town seemed fine and away from danger.
I like her character but I'm also really enjoying all the tie-ins and cameos from the main story. Vanir's spin-off looks promising in the same way.
Season 2 will eventually end as well user.
He sends his armies to attack cities but so far only two of his Generals were actually trying to cause harm and we don't know if they were acting on the Demon Lord's orders.
it doesnt seem like mitsurugis been there that long either
maybe 3-6 months of a headstart judging from the megumin spinoffs
Quality > Quantity.
Kazuma is pretty useless for large scale battles, but pit him in a 1v1 or similarly small scale fight and he excels. He's the most well-connected of the party, so it's thanks to him that they occasionally enjoy the support of Axel's adventurers or Wiz or even Vanir's behind-the-stage scheming. He's also the only adventurer around with Drain Touch, which as he's proven is absurdly overpowered if used right.
Aqua is literally a god, and the number one reason the party can win so many of their fights. Her buffs and heals are unmatched, her exorcism capabilities are a huge Fuck You to any demon, and worst comes to worst she's literally the head of a cult. They've never needed it yet, but Kazuma's party straight up has a religion backing them.
Megumin is a one-trick pony, but Explosion is a really good trick. If it hits someone, they're fucked. Having her around also means having Yunyun around, who's a far more competent mage. And technically it also means they have the backing of the Crimson Demons, who are so OP they can fight off the entire Demon Lord Army by themselves.
And then there's Darkness, who is just straight up immortal. She's demonstrated such feats as tanking Explosion and holding up the entire Kowloon Hydra, she is nigh invulnerable. Her accuracy's shit, but the party's main damage comes from Megumin or Aqua so who gives a shit. Her being able to stall even the strongest of opponents is a large part of why most of Kazuma's plans can succeed. And of course, she's a very esteemed noble, to the point that she can just wave her necklace and boom, the party is officially above the law.
Compared to that, Mitsurugi is just a decent all-rounder with the backing of an army of regular soldiers. That's fine for fighting grunts, but not good enough for bosses.
Oh, and Kazuma also plays the important role of babysitting Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness so they don't get themselves killed doing something mind-numbingly dumb.
It's not the most glamorous position, and as pointed out in volume 6 there are others who can probably do it too. But at the same time, there are very few people who could probably get along with those three chucklefucks as well as Kazuma does.
It smells like one
He's attacking the closer cities to him. Axel is a town for beginners, farthest from his reach. As Aqua explained in the beginning, people live in fear and choose not to be reincarnated into the same world, so population is dropping.
she looked like a pink Megumin, so she was absolutely necessary
Pretty sure people wouldn't choose to reincarnate into the same world even if the Demon Lord was dead.
and worst comes to worst she's literally the head of a cult.
Doesn't the cult think she's not the real aqua and just a heretic pretender or something? I admit to not having read the LNs much yet but I swear I saw it being discussed in a previous thread.
I agree, she looks a lot like her. Cute as hell succubus.
Was Kazuma a secret lolicon though? Those things he asked at the place and all
They used to when she showed up in that cult's city, but they acknowledged her as their god after that.
Do you think if a whole bunch of people shit talked Yen Press on twitter or something for being so god damned slow at translating that maybe they would get their shit together and get their series' translated faster??
The only messages I see them get are undeservedly positive, so maybe if they were told the truth they would consider speeding up volume releases.
I'm a paying customer, but I really don't feel like they deserve it when it takes them at least 3 or 4 months to get a manga volume released when it should take a week for a manga, or a month for an LN at most to translate it. I hate being so far behind the Jap releases even though I have money I'm willing to pay now if they would speed things up.
They sent him a young newbie on purpose because they figured a virgin like Kazuma would happily accept anything and it's how they break in their new girls.
He asked about age because the dream he request was about a shy, inexperienced, older girl. That's why he rolled with the Darkness in the bath scene for so long because it matched his request dream.
What does he need that for when he has Aqua, Darkness, and Megumin?
Succubus influence your dreams, user. Kazuma was supposed to be asleep by then.
The client should never need to see the succubus coming for their vitality, as they'd be asleep.
user never stick your dick in crazy
even 2D crazy
Because there's nothing less sexy than walking frustration.
He doesn't want to ruin the relationship he has with everyone.
I totally would motorboat yunyun's yunyuns.
What's wrong with that world? Sure, cabbages fly and everything outside city walls is trying to kill you, but forming a party with a cute girl has a good chance of it ending in marriage.
No it doesn't.
Remember Dust? He almost lost his balls for trying to make a move on Rin.
That's not even the worst of it, Being Dust is suffering.
Also, gay noble wants those balls
It was said explicitly. Attempted rape is different and was the reason succubus shop is so successful, but also because it always ended painfully.
His plot armor is Aqua. By his luck he was sent to jail, but he'll never lose at rock-paper-scissors.
His luck was great, because exploding the landlord's house worked out great for him in volume 6.
Kazuma's luck isn't always immediately apparent, but it's there.
YunYun is pretty garbage, why are you fags trying to push her again?
Why does his luck insist on screwing him over so much before things get better though.
How the hell did someone with his "luck" end up with such horribly embarrassing death to begin with?
Will you also TL volume 10 when it comes out or will you quit after editing volume 9?
To make the bullying all that much sweeter when she thinks she's being loved and has friends.
Why does his luck insist on screwing him over so much before things get better though.
Either Aqua's shit luck fucks his life and then his luck fixes it, or his luck works by putting him into shitty situations and then having him profit from said shitty situations.
Because Aqua has literally 0 luck and the universe is trying to balance out the 2, so it ends up Monkey Pawing it.
fuck, how did you guess?
even the Axis cult refused her
Yunyun had a hard life
The lack of big breasts
His death was so horrifically embarrassing that Aqua couldn't keep her usual "I am a divine goddess, bow down to me" facade going long enough to send off a spirit like she normally does. Instead she breaks out laughing, which is what directly leads to Kazuma choosing to drag her along. And it's having Aqua along that enables the party to do a lot of the crazier shit they do.
Also, you know, he's an absurdly lucky guy for getting to live in a RPG world instead of rotting away as a NEET.
How does Aqua having 0 luck make sense though? It seems the only unlucky thing to happen to her prior to ending up in fantasy straya was pissing off Kazuma. Actually that wasn't even bad luck, that was completely her own fault. In fact you'd think a hopeless damegami like her ending up with so much authority to begin with is a product of God-tier luck.
implying cowtits are better than DFC
I see what you're doing user, and you need to stop.
What the hell does "ｲｲｯ↑ﾀｲ↓ﾒｶﾞｧｧｧ↑" mean and why am I seeing it getting spammed by nips in Konosuba comment sections.
a shitty meme
Aqua is always by Kazuma's side, so she her awful luck's been canceled out by his amazing one. Vanir even straight up tells Kazuma that if he ditched his party, he would actually benefit from his luck.
Also Luck is tied to your skill as a businessman, and Aqua has proven to be frankly awful at business.
But Kazuma wasn't by her side prior to the start of the story.
His luck only applies in the new world he is into as an adventurer. Back in Japan he was just a NEET
Getting owned so badly that you lose your omnipotent godhood, your cushy life and all by the guy you were tormenting and mocking just a moment ago to go live in a barn and sleep next to horse manure all while being pitied and looked down on should count as 0 luck.
I thought their beginning stats reflected their natural state of being? Hence why Kazuma had mediocre stats across the board aside from luck due to being a NEET and Aqua had literal god-tier stats aside from intelligence due to being a retard goddess.
If Aqua had zero luck at the beginning of the story wouldn't that imply she ALWAYS had zero luck?
The int stat doesn't really make sense to me.
Aqua has rock bottom int to reflect her being an idiot but Megumin isn't exactly the brightest bulb in the shed either and she has sky high int.
Megumin isn't dumb, she's just passionate and chuuni. Anything in particular you can point out?
That's not entirely true, He states he never lost a RPS match in his life so he had incredible luck even in japan.
0 luck can't do much when you live in a realm of basically nothing.
That's why her shit luck had to get her out of there first.
Is there an Iris = Alice spinoff I missed somewhere
I think its age old problem of wizards who use wisdom as a dump stat. They have the brains the size of a galaxy but cant see the mistake in making that unholy toaster of eternal darkness that will piss off every god in the dimension.
"My eyes!↑ hurt!↑"
Meme aside, it's what megumin said when Kazuma pulled her eye patch when she deliberately bullshit them about it sealing her internal powers.
He had to get cucked so he would die and get reincarnated in a world where Megumin exists. His childhood friend was a slut anyways.
Luck-kun is a wingman that plays the long game. He knows what he's doing.
Kazuma claimed that even before he was lucky, evident that his comrades calls him "Kazuma who is only lucky in getting rare drops"
Well I believe having incredible luck as a characteristic work in both ways, either incredibly good or incredibly shit.
Luck only helps you. It doesent stop you from your own stupidity. According to Kazuma he had been only sleeping 2 hours a day for a while so it wasnt really suprising he died from a heartattack.
yes. Vanir's spinoff.
he had been only sleeping 2 hours a day
tfw I'm pretty close to that
still far behind
go check the edited chapters
they are 400% more readable than the initial translation
mfw I would have read everything long ago with this prose
Kazuma is pretty useless for large scale battles
He is pretty useful as a strategist
Mages are intelligent but lack the wisdom called common sense.
Damn irresponsible mages.
Imagine if Kazuma could buff his luck so high, it'd act like the luck potion from Harry Potter. Knowing his actual luck it would come back to bite him in the ass the next day because the world hates him.
But just like Overlord Sky dropped the reins and isn't the active Translator for the latest volume. Shouldn't interested parties be asking that guy and not Sky? Hosting the translation isn't exactly hard without Sky.
I hope he does.
Those two are too good to have to wait till the end of times for Yen Press to release volume 2.
