Isekai Quartet 2: More Laughs, More Fun

I won’t rehash my views on Isekai on this post. There are good isekai, and there are great Isekai. The show we are talking about today works because it takes the characters from the ‘big four’ Isekai (Tanya the Evil, Konosuba, Overlord, and ReZero) and smashes them together for comedic fun. That worked damn well last time, but is the shine still around for the season season? Join me after the cut as we dive into Isekai Quartet 2!

KonoSuba – God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World 2!: It’s Always Sunny in Axel

With the Isekai Genre being so big, with so many series of varying quality, there are plenty of series around to establish a sort of hierarchy of quality. Like with Shonen before it, Isekai right now is dominated by the Big 4: The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Overlord, ReZero and of course, Konosuba. And honestly? It’s not to hard to see why.

The Saga of Tanya the Evil takes very core concept of the Isekai and decides to tell a story about a world war instead of the classic fairy tail fantasy.

Overlord uses its unique protagonist to freshen up  well established genre tropes.

ReZero is a breakdown and rebuilding of not just the Isekai hero, but of anime protagonists in general.

And Konosuba is a rip-roaring comedy that is a loving pie in the face of the entire genre.

Each of these shows has their strengths and weaknesses, but they represent the absolute best that the Isekai genre has provided. While there are other excellent shows (Cautious Hero, Rising of the Shield Hero, and Reincarnated as a Slime), these four shows are the crown jewels of the genre. Today we are taking a look once again at Konosuba. I’ve gushed about the first season, and the recent movie, but now the second season has finally released its dub and we can finally ask, how does it all hold up?

Konosuba -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson: Light it Up.

It is a little bit ironic that I am giving you my thoughts on this movie before the second season, but since I’m still waiting for that English dub to come out, and this movie crossed my desk sooner than expected, I may as well just do it now. I’ve already made my feelings on Konosuba, one of the best Isekai shows in the genre,  very clear, and now it is time to see if the movie holds up! Join me after the cut as I give you my thoughts on Konosuba -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson

Isekai Quartet: Greatest Crossover

Isekai Quartet is a show in which the enjoyment you get comes mostly from much you liked the four shows it borrows from. I am on record saying that ReZero is a masterpiece of an anime, and that The Saga of Tanya the Evil is probably freshest and most unique of the major Isekai shows. I’ve said that Konosuba is a great comedy that is a playful thumb in the nose of the common tropes, but also just a fun story with some of the best characters around. And Overlord is…well it has a great premise on a familiar concept, but I just can’t get into it. Still 3 out of the 4 is pretty good.

So with all that said, you can probably tell that I liked the mini crossover series starring all four leads and their main cast members. What surprised me though was how much I loved it, and everyone else has. After the cut let’s take a dive into the breakout hit of the year: Isekai Quartet.

I don’t think anyone expected it to be THIS GOOD.
