Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2

Without having succeeded in eliminating the Demon King yet, Kazuma, Aqua, Darkness and Megumin will continue to work to survive and also earn money so that they can equip themselves and one day defeat the being that threatens the world.
Released in early 2017 as part of the current winter season, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2, or simply Konosuba 2, is as you can imagine from the title, the second installment of the series of the same name released exactly one year ago, being the same an adaptation of the light novels authored by Natsume Akatsuki and Kurone Mishima, being as its predecessor produced by Deen studios and having only 10 episodes to its credit.

It was a much awaited debut by more than one, due to the attractive surprise that turned out to be its first part, achieving the same being a not excellent but quite competent comedy title, which in good measure made fun of the currently somewhat burned out theme of young people being transported to fantasy worlds with elements of MMORPG, This second season of Konosuba had quite a lot of expectations behind it, to be at least as entertaining as its predecessor, which at least in my case I am happy to say that it has achieved more than that, finding in this second season a job considerably more entertaining and bearable than its predecessor.

KonoSuba! 2

The series continues where it left off at the end of its first part, with our protagonist, Kazuma, being arrested and tried for unwittingly destroying the residence of a greasy and bad-tempered nobleman, by being accused of working for the demon king he is supposed to defeat, A charge that is difficult to refute, partly because of some of his friendships and partly because his teammates are not the best legal defence out there, so after a trial from which young Kazuma will emerge more or less unscathed, it is that we enter the series in earnest, which can basically be divided into two large halves, a first one composed of several short stories without much relation between them, but which have as a central axis Kazuma's attempts to raise the suspicions that still exist about him, and that lead him to have a constant vigilance over, and a second one focused on a trip of our main party to a city famous for its hot springs and which happens to be the center of worship of the religion that pays tribute to Aqua, and which of course is inhabited by a lot of incredibly annoying and violent religious fanatics.

As you will see in this season we don't have to wait much advance of the central story of Konosuba, being basically the same one an excuse to see our quartet of heroes getting into more trouble and absurd situations, getting as I said before a better result than its predecessor in terms of entertainment level, this is largely because the series no longer has to spend time and effort to introduce the leading characters or their world, He is fully dedicated to comedy, which stands out mostly due to the excellent group dynamics among his four main charismatics, with their irreverence, perversion, bad luck and no appreciation for others, because although in the past they had already demonstrated what they were capable of being together, here those moments of interaction between them get to the point of being simply hilarious and very enjoyable, not finding chapter that could not get at least some small laugh.

Otherwise, with regard to the section of history or characters really not much to comment, and is that apart from the addition to the cast of a couple of new secondary, which although and nice funny is not as they have had much presence, and the fall of a couple of commanders of the devil king almost by chance, this second part is just that, a direct continuation of the previous, of the very funny moments that it is able to offer, it is not that it presents us precisely anything new under the sun, fulfilling its objective of entertaining and resulting in general a very light and easy to see title, but up to there, so those who were waiting for something else may end up feeling a little disappointed.

Visually speaking, the series remains in the same line of its predecessor, with some attractive and very expressive character designs from which stand out their always ridiculous facial expressions, a careful work of backgrounds, a striking color palette and an animation whose quality comes and goes, having some very well animated scenes and a good level of detail in the drawing, and others where the same goes to the ground, but unlike the previous season, where these drops in quality, although they were a defect of the work at the same time, in a certain way helped him, producing moments of involuntary comedy, here it seems that the situation was planned in advance, precisely in order to take advantage of that result achieved earlier, and is that the drops in quality come to be appreciated even in its opening, which usually is one of the pieces of animation that are more cared for in any anime.

There is not much to say about the music, keeping the section in line with its predecessor with a soundtrack suitable but not very noticeable and forgettable, although this time delivering a much more enjoyable opening, both visually and musically, and a very nice ending but of which little more can be said.

A second season that is far superior to its predecessor in more ways than one, which is a competent and very successful comedy that stands out for the great charisma of its leading quartet and its group dynamics. If you have already seen the first Konosuba and you like it, be sure that this season will meet your expectations, and if you have not yet given the title a chance, try that only for this second season is worth seeing the first.
