Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o 2 19 November 2017

2017 ongoing comedic fantasy manga adaptation in 10 episodes: Anidb, vt "Konosuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!". Kazuma continues to live in an MMORPG world.

The party composition has settled down, and this is essentially several chapters of an ongoing story: Kazuma's party has acquired a large house and is contuning, very slowly, to build up power in the hopes of defeating the Demon King. But we don't see as much of the power increases as in the first series; instead what development there is here is in Kazuma's personality (he doesn't get much kinder, but he can at least fake being a grown-up convincingly) and in the back-story of the paladin Darkness (who turns out to be from a noble family).

A multi-episode story at the end of the run has the goddess Aqua visiting the town that's the home of her cult, and finding it's not as pleasing as she'd hoped. There's a welcome realism: even when the townspeople finally turn out to help her in a big battle, they don't automatically fall into line and approve of her allies too.

Aqua continues to be an annoying brat. As before, there's nothing here that will cause you to regret not having seen it; it's agreeable but nothing special. If you do want to watch the series, you might as well start from the beginning.

There's a single OVA side story following this (the team takes on a powerful giant golem), but no word on a further sequel.
