Konosuba Season 1 + OVA Blu-ray
About Konosuba Season 1 + OVA Blu-ray
Konosuba Season 1 contains episodes 1-10 plus the OVA of the anime directed by Takaomi Kanasaki.
Kazuma Sato decides that today is the day to get out of the house for a bit. Since he dies, pointlessly, it's clearly a bad choice. The goddess who greets him in the afterlife, however, offers him a chance to be reborn in a world not unlike that of a video game, and as a bonus she'll even throw in a cool item or power! Can't possibly be a bad choice, right? Except he arrives with no money at all, dead average skills, and his "bonus" isn't useful at all--since he picked the goddess, Aqua, herself. How are the two of them supposed to defeat the evil Devil King and live happily ever after? Well, for them, it probably starts with day laboring rather than adventuring. And it's only going to get more disappointing from there!

Ratings & Reviews
It's Konosuba, So It's Good
by Giovanni -
Box art: Amazing. Animation: Amazing Comedy: ALWAYS AMAZING. If you are only now trying to get into anime, I'd highly recommend Konosuba as one of the first ones to watch
An Isekai anime that hilariously deviates from the norm
by MKY -
Most Isekai anime has the main protagonist entering such gaming worlds with some sort of awesome abilities or powerful gear or weapon, not so for poor Kazuma, as he decides to choose the Goddess Aqua instead!
A series that introduces funny, eccentric, yet dysfunctional group of heroes that somehow elapse through each of their precarious adventures together. At first, it's just Kazuma and Aqua, but are soon joined by an 'Explosion' Wizard who can only cast her spell once-a-day, then the masochist, 'Darkness the female knight' enlists for even more demented laughs.
While there is some fan-service in Konosuba, what stood out for me is the obvious comedy, the luck/determination to persevere goofy circumstances, and the growth & progression of the team from "Zeros to Heroes" narrative. Enjoy in 1080p/16:9 video format.
A Must Watch for Comedy Fans
by Trevor -
Konosuba is one of the best comedies I have seen in a long time. Every episode has me laughing and wanting more. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend. I will say that a lot of the humor is adult oriented so if that isn't your cup of tea then I would recommend passing on this one. However, if you enjoy a good adult humor then you'll eat this show up. I'm also stoked this came with OVA's they just add so much to humor and jokes going on. I'm looking forward to season 2 and the movie being released as well.
"The" Isekai to Watch
by Kenji -
A must watch anime. Takes the traditional isekai and turns it on its head. A band of characters with unlikeable/near useless traits end up creating a make-shift family that will make you laugh as they blunder through the quests given to them all while managing to charm (or disgust) anyone they come into contact with.
The "Always Sunny" of Isekai
by Steve -
The title of this review might not be 100% accurate, but the point I'm trying to get across is that if you're looking for a traditional fantasy romp starring a traditional band of heroic heroes doing heroic deeds, look elsewhere.
I don't want to spoil too much, but the basic premise is that Kazuma Satou gets reincarnated to a fantasy world that runs on videogame logic, but finds it's not all it's cracked up to be and has to fight for day-to-day survival, nevermind honor and glory.
The show is a gold mine of comedy both visual and written, with fantastic performances in both sub and dub. If you're looking for a bawdy, subversive laugh riot, Konosuba should not be missed.
A True Comedy Isekai
by Jillian -
I'll be honest and say that this is a bare basic BluRay set, but it's Konosuba so who cares. This series is a laugh out loud mess from beginning to end and I couldn't ask for anything more. 10/10 for this comedic isekai gem that floats above all others in the bloated Genre
Excellent series, too short for the price
by Dude It's Rob -
An excellent comedy series that is full of the unexpected. The characters are unique enough that they don't seem overly cliche as the setting and personality quirks of the cast are constantly engaging. My only gripe is how unforgivably short the series is. Ten episodes and an OVA don't justify the price in my opinion, but I bought it because it was missing from my collection and it's been far too long since I've seen it. Definitely worth buying on sale. Oh, and I highly recommend the subbed version as the English cast is.... cringe worthy to say the least.
This is an Isekai anime. But it is not a typical Isekai. This is a deconstruction/parody of Isekai.
While perfectly following along the normal plotlines of dying, being reborn into another world which is somehow modeled after a swords & sorcery video game world and being given some overpowered, overwhelming advantage, this story ahs the grace to realize that humans are imperfect, gods are imperfect, and any high-level characters that inexplicably want to join your novice party probably have huge flaws and weaknesses to offset their strengths.
I am not a fan of isekai. Konosuba is a beautiful, sarcastic diamond in a sea of boring power fantasy shows.
Next episode dialogue issue
by D -
The show itself is fine. If you're looking at the reviews for the blu-ray, I'm assuming you have already seen the anime. I bought this blu-ray last winter and got around to watching it recently. Everything about it is fine, except for a single issue that occurs at the end of each episode. It's during the dialogue that leads into the next episode (essentially the preview dialogue). With Konosuba, it's not a direct summary of the next episode and there are still jokes being told. However, when watching the dub version, it cuts off in the middle of the characters speaking and goes to the next episode. This issue happens on every episode, mid sentence and thus loses the two stars.
It's not deal breaking, but it's extremely disappointing, especially since you're paying close to $40.
Should Be Called Laughsuba
This is a genuinely funny series, Aqua cracks me up everytime while the other characters have their own funny mannerisms. At 11 episodes it's a little on the short side but a third season is being made which is great as far as I'm concerned.
Short, but hilarious anime
by Matthew -
I seen this anime on Crunchyroll in subtitles and I enjoyed the story and characters. I seen a few episodes in English Dub and the cast for the characters was perfect. If you like Isekai anime, but with a lot of humor and fanservice, check out this anime. It's worth it!
