Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo First Impressions (1): This series feels somewhat familiar


I'm a bit late on this one, but I wanted to see why this show was hyped so much. Going in, all I really know is that it's supposed to be a "trapped-in-game" series.

I don't personally have a problem with a guy who has both computer speakers and a headset. I do, however, have an issue with the fact that this guy has two mice...for some reason.

Well, this escalated quickly. Also, I'm assuming we'll never see that girl again.

I'm pretty sure that's not how the human body works, but sure...why not? Let's have the guy die of shock from just the thought of being run over. This is a comedy, so I'll give it a pass.

When she started laughing like that, I honestly thought she was going to say "nah, that's not really how you died...I can't believe you fell for that". That would have actually been funny...unlike this.

Whoa whoa...does Jesus know you're spouting these blasphemous words? Also, I guess this is one of those fancy afterlife situations where there's no "punishment" outcome.

The fact that there's a light switch sound effect when this light turns on and off makes this scene actually funny.

Judging from the way he said this, I'm going to guess he's going to pick her.

Well, that was convenient.

Is this actually a mechanic? Because if so, this is hilarious.

Wait...a guild is where you get information? Isn't it usually the tavern or the inn? What games are you playing, dude? I guess you'd go there for the tutorial and learning combat basics, but that's not where you go to get basic information on the world.

Oh...the guild is the tavern...never mind, then.

So let me get this straight...the goddess who wanted to send the otaku to the game world that he would like so much is surprised that the otaku is okay in the game world? I guess she really was sending him off to die in this world.

Haha owned

Are these stats based on actual physical ability? Will this guy even be able to get a good stat if that's the case? It better not be the cliche where his best stat is intelligence...

Sigh...every time. This means he'll probably end up being a mage. I know that mages are overpowered in most games, but it feels like this happens every time...

Can magic even crit? Or is that not how luck works in this game? I actually don't have a problem with this guy having high luck...it could end up being interesting.

"Female character playing the support" cliche. Also, how is a priest not an intelligence-based class? Is healing not counted as magic? Is this like the D&D; universe where arcane magic and holy magic require different stats?

And didn't the guide just say that the mage was the least appropriate class for Aqua because of her stats? Given that Aqua's stats are the exact opposite of the main character's stats, why is the mage not the most appropriate class for him?

This is actually pretty generic RPG intro music in this scene...

One training montage later...

That's the translation they decided to use for the title? Sure, why not? Also, I see a priest, a knight, and a mage...what exactly is the main character's role? Based on the current composition, it sounds like he needs to either be a ranged DPS or a second front-liner. As for the song, I honestly don't think it's anything special.

Yeah...I'm not too sure about this one. I feel like I don't have enough information to judge. The first episode wasn't too bad, but it also wasn't that funny to me. I don't fully agree with the idea that this series is a parody of the "trapped in game" series...it feels more to me like it's just using the same elements. But I might wait to pass judgment until after I've seen some more.
