Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!, or KonoSuba for short, has been one of the funniest and most ridiculous anime comedies this year. It’s really no surprise that Studio Deen has decided to produce a second season on January 2017; this show is awesome. This light-hearted comedy is in fact so humorous and amusing that it doesn’t even need a plot.
KonoSuba appears as one of the countless shows about a boy trapped in a fantasy RPG world, only to give us this set of dysfunctional heroes with the weirdest and most perverted personalities. This show is all about the characters and the silly and ridiculous situations they keep getting into. While we comfortably wait for KonoSuba’s second season we’ll take a few minutes to go over these hilarious Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku characters that made us laugh so hard.
These are the top 10 most hilarious KonoSuba characters!
YunYun is this gorgeous wizard babe with an unusually revealing outfit that we get to meet in the OVA. She acts super shy, girly, and silly, which makes a striking contrast with her sexy looks. As Kazuma says, it is almost impossible to look at YunYun’s face and pay attention to her while she’s speaking because all of the attention is drawn to her huge oppai.
In fact, Yunyun’s delightful breasts can even be compared to Wiz’s, which is already saying much. But this lovely girl with a mesmerizing figure is much more than just boobs. YunYun is Megumin’s sworn rival. As such, she is constantly stalking Megumin in order to find the opportunity to challenge her, which always ends up with the funniest and most bizarre situations, just like the two playing strip jankenpon (rock, paper, scissor).
Unfortunately, Chris doesn’t really get a lot of screen time but considering what she’s done, we can’t forget about her and we should build her a freaking monument. That’s right, Chris is the enthusiastic and skillful thief who teaches Kazuma the steal skill. Needless to say, that skill has provided us with countless laughs and good times.
Of course, Chris is a bit surprised to see the way Kazuma uses this skill to steal female underwear instead of more valuable items (although panties do have their own particular value). However, she is not as innocent and defenseless as the rest of the girls. Chris is actually a little mischievous girl, and her way of paying Kazuma back for his naughtiness is quite funny too. Chris takes it out on Kazuma by exposing him publicly and letting everyone know how much of a pervert he is. Yup, public humiliation can be the funniest and most effective way of fighting pantie thieves.
The lovely and sexy Luna is the Innkeeper and quest-giver at the Axel guildhall. She’s a most cheerful and optimistic girl who teaches adventurers all they need to know about quests, rewards, and leveling up. Luna is also the first girl on the show to leave us breathless for her humongous breasts. Still, such a bright and sweet character may appear as a bit dull at first (not even huge boobs can save you from that).
However, later on in the show we find that Luna has one of the funniest running jokes on the show. Her job, as we said, is giving rewards after a successful quest, although with Kazuma’s terrible fortune, these rewards usually come with an unfortunate turn of events that make Kazuma want to die and never be reborn again. Luna excels at bringing Kazuma down every time he does something right. For instance, when Kazuma’s party was awarded 300 million eris for defeating Beldia, Luna gave them an even larger bill for the repairs of the city wall. Easy comes, easy goes.
7. Kyouya Mitsurugi
Every fantasy story needs a great and invincible hero, right? Well, our main character Kazuma is definitely not it, but we do have the antithesis of Kazuma which is Kyouya Mitsurugi, also known as the handsome swordsman. Kyouya is just another guy like Kazuma who was thrown into this world of fantasy after dying. Unlike Kazuma of course, Kyouya made the wise decision of taking with him a magical sword of unlimited power (instead of an incompetent goddess).
Kyouya has since been living the good life and he is now admired throughout the kingdom thanks to what he was able to achieve with this cheat sword. Sadly for Kyouya, everything went south when he met Kazuma (he appears to have that effect on people’s lives), since out of his big ego, Kyouya lowered his guard allowing Kazuma to steal his sword and hit him on his big head. Few things are funnier than watching this knight in shiny armor being loathed by the girls, beaten with his own sword and humiliated over and over again. Besides, his face when he’s told that his sword has been pawned is priceless. XD
Beldia is a Dullahan and one of the Devil King’s generals. He takes shelter near Axel town, which drives some of the monsters away from that area affecting the amount of available quests. With a lot of free time and no monsters around to lay waste to, Megumin goes out with Kazuma to find a suitable place for her to unleash her destructive magic, which to our amusement ends up being the castle in which Beldia is residing.
Eventually, Beldia comes up to Axel city gates to find out who has been constantly attacking him day after day. He leaves after daring Megumin to face the dangers of his castle in a week’s time. What’s so funny about this is that he has to show up again at the city because he was stood up on. What’s even more, during that week, Megumin never stopped casting her explosive magic on Beldia’s castle. Poor headless knight, however intimidating he may be, nobody respects him. Although he probably had it coming for all those times he threw his head at Wiz’s feet in order to look under her skirt.
Wiz is yet another of the many inept and unsuccessful characters in KonoSuba. She is a timid and innocent (although very well-endowed) girl who runs a failing magic shop in town and helps lost souls find their way to the afterlife. Wiz is so girly and fragile that it’s really shocking to find out she’s actually a powerful lich wizard and one of the Devil King’s generals.
Despite her fiendish descent however, Wiz uses her powers to help innocent people; as well as to produce some of the most hilarious scenes in the show. In the most difficult situations she may resort to her drain touch, sucking Kazuma dry but not in the way he’d like. Clearly, it’s an impossible task to keep your mind out of the gutter with this babe around.
As we all know, a good fantasy show cannot be complete without an adorable loli such as Megumin. She’s the arch wizard in Kazuma’s party and a very powerful one. In fact, Megumin is the most powerful wizard in the whole town, having earned the title of “crazy little girl” among other adventurers.
Obviously, Megumin had to have a weakness (otherwise she wouldn’t be in Kazuma’s party), which is the fact she can only use one spell a day, after which she faints. The funny thing about Megumin is that she actually has a lot of potential but she’s so stubborn that she refuses to learn any type of magic other than Explosion. Megumin is just so obsessed with this magic that she has to use it every day, even if it is against some poor headless guy’s castle.
Darkness is by far one of the funniest, sexiest and most perverted characters in KonoSuba, which is already saying a lot if we consider the amount of babes, perverts, and ridiculous people who inhabit Axel town. Darkness’ real name is Lalatina Dustiness Ford, and she’s the paladin in Kazuma’s party. She is an honorable warrior who has sworn to protect the weak in the name of her family even at the cost of her own dignity and sexual integrity.
Of course, none of Darkness’ enemies actually want to abuse her or anything like that (or at least they do not say it out loud) but she has such a dirty mind that she believes everyone wants to get kinky with her. And Darkness just loves fantasizing about all that kind of sadistic practices. It’s like she’s begging for someone, whether it’s Kazuma or an enemy, to kidnap her and do all kind of nasty things to her. We just don’t know what to think about this anymore. Seriously, is it sexy, awkward or unsettling? Well, at least we know it’s damn funny!.
Oh Aqua, our precious goddess of blue hair and transparent mini skirt! Aqua is the main heroine of the show and a goddess in charge of sending recently deceased people into this wonderful world of fantasy. That is, of course, until she meets Kazuma and, to her misfortune, ends up joining him on his new adventurous life. Still, we all know how karma is a bitch, and Kazuma’s brilliant idea of taking a goddess with him finally backfires when he realizes she’s of little use.
Aqua turns out to be a pain in the ass for Kazuma instead of the heroine he expected. In fact, Aqua is probably the worst partner you could possibly ask for to go on quests or adventures. This sorry excuse of a goddess is actually a silly, whiny, childish and rude little girl who doesn’t have a better idea than spending all of her skill points from leveling up on useless party tricks. Needless to say we can’t possibly hate Aqua, since watching her driving Kazuma mad all the time is freaking hilarious. Plus, we are really grateful for all the fan service she provides. 😛
1. Kazuma Satou
And finally we have the great hero of the show! Or should we say anti-hero? Kazuma Satou is not really a noble warrior or a talented mage of any kind. He starts as an introverted gamer boy with a bit of bad luck and, even though he improves in many ways along his path as adventurer, he essentially remains as a wimp throughout the show.
Clearly, that is what makes Kazuma so funny. He’s not the typical brave and admired hero. Instead, Kazuma is the average Joe who’s just trying to get by in this world full of dangers. Of course, as the big pervert he also is, Kazuma is constantly trying to make the most of his new life by taking advantage of his female party members in the naughtiest and most ridiculous ways.
Kazuma loves using his steal skill to take girls’ underwear or making YunYun and Megumin play strip rock, paper, scissor. Kazuma’s perversion always gets him in the craziest and most hilarious situations. Although if there’s anything funnier than watching him venture into the Succubus “special shop”, then that is watching him getting bit in the ass all the time due to his misdeeds and his never ending bad luck.
Well, we’ve finally come to the end of our Top 10 hilarious characters from KonoSuba, the show that made us laugh (and drool) all winter long. We’re certainly looking forward to this show’s second season, which will surely be just as funny as the first one (and if it’s not at least we’ll have Aqua’s mini skirt back).
Now it’s your turn to tell us what you think of this show and its characters. Who’s the funniest one in your opinion? And how hyped are you about the upcoming second season? Let us know in the comments! ˆ-ˆ
