Synopsis

When Kazuma Satou died, he was given two choices: pass on to heaven or be revived in a fantasy world. After choosing the new world, the goddess Aqua tasked him with defeating the Demon King, and let him choose any weapon to aid him. Unfortunately, Kazuma chose to bring Aqua herself and has regretted the decision ever since then.

Not only is he stuck with a useless deity turned party archpriest, the pair also has to make enough money for living expenses. To add to their problems, their group continued to grow as more problematic adventurers joined their ranks. Their token spellcaster, Megumin, is an explosion magic specialist who can only cast one spell once per day and refuses to learn anything else. There is also their stalwart crusader, Lalatina “Darkness” Dustiness Ford, a helpless masochist who makes Kazuma look pure in comparison.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 continues to follow Kazuma and the rest of his party through countless more adventures as they struggle to earn money and have to deal with one another’s problematic personalities. However, things rarely go as planned, and they are often sidetracked by their own idiotic tendencies.

Review

The second season of Konosuba came out at the start of this year and I loved it! The outrageous comedy continued and well that’s pretty much it. It’s a fantasy comedy about taking down the evil lord (or something) and saving the world basically accidentally.

This show was more of the same and what we’ve come to expect to the series. What made the series worse in my opinion was the way it diverted between situations. What I mean is that we got a few episodes in the starting city, a few episodes traveling to another city and more episodes in that city. I personally think these middle episodes suffered from not being in the city and having scenarios around it and I think the starting episodes didn’t work as well since the lead up from the previous season had to be rebuilt and the first city didn’t really have a good ending in my opinion; they just left it. The final episodes also suffered because we didn’t have much time at all to establish the city before the evil guy attacked and the episode ended.

In the first series so much of the comedy was a result of the characters’ previous actions and these didn’t really stick over the course of travel. I would have preferred spending more time in the second city as I think it would have made the final pay off a lot better.

Despite all this I still enjoyed it and it’s definitely a very good show. That’s pretty much my explanation for not putting it higher.
