Konosuba or as it is known to the people who have seen the anime – “KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!” – is an anime with a pretty long title.
It’s a story about a boy, a closeted NEET, with no proper education to bite the stick of employment. He dies and then is sent to the world of a fantasy land, where he begins his journey with three other companions. The group includes a goddess, a wizard, and a crusader (Why not!) to fight against evil monsters. Either he is destroying monsters with good looking women staying by his side defending him from monsters or he clearly has dementia.
The anime television show of Konosuba is a massive hit among fans, with 20 episodes and two OVA’s – it’s clearly a fan favorite.
There is also a video game adaption of this show. It goes by the name Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! In The Life, if you are into classic JRPG games with the top-down camera angle. The video game digs deeper into the storyline of the main show as the player can interact with the characters of the show and move around the notable areas from the show.
