An Explosion on this Wonderful World Could’ve been Better

June 3, 2023

Key takeaways from An Explosion on This Wonderfil World:

  • “An Explosion on This Wonderful World” starts off strong with great comedy and character development, particularly for Megumin and Yunyun.
  • However, the series loses its momentum in the second half, lacking the unhinged nature and shenanigans that made “KonoSuba” enjoyable.
  • The animations and soundtracks are highlights of the series, with a visually appealing art style and well-executed magical sequences accompanied by great music.

Konosuba is one of my favorite comedy anime of all time. Let me get that clear. I am a huge fan of the series and I am always down for more KonoSuba content. So when I heard about An Explosion on this Wonderful World, I was really excited.

And you know, sure enough, the season started off really strong with some amazing comedy and infinitely memeable moments. As things went on though, the series became rather boring for one reason or another.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today I will be talking about An Explosion on this Wonderful World. And this is a review that I am not going to enjoy writing. So let’s get started.

Plot

Ok, so the plot of this series was pretty much nonexistent since the beginning, right? We were just there to see how Megumin got her signature spells, gear, and stuff like that. Sure, there are some run-ins with demons but that is subplot worthy at best. But you know, it is meant to be a comedy SOL anime, so of course it won’t have much of a plot. And you know, I accept that and honestly, the series had a great first half.

The thing is, An Explosion on This Wonderful World fails to keep your interest in the long term. The second half of the series is just a bunch of stuff happening. Yep, just happening. It lacks the unhinged nature of KonoSuba, Megumin, and Komekko are literally carrying this series on their back. And the second half is when you truly miss Kazuma, Aqua, and all their Shenanigans.

Characters

Now, I do have some nice things to say here. If there is one thing this series got right, it was the character work. We get some amazing character development for Megumin and Yunyun in this series. Komekko also gets some well-deserved screentime and it is great. If nothing, the series really knows its characters and how to bring them out well. I wish Megumin’s classmates were just as entertaining too cause they could’ve helped save the series in the second half.

Animations and Soundtracks

This is another section in which the series does pretty well. The animations themselves aren’t mind-blowing or anything but the art style is really good. I like the way the characters look and I like the way the spells like. And of course, the spells are accompanied by some amazing soundtracks. Megumin starts casting magic, and the synths in the BGM start going crazy with that ominous music, it is glorious.

Conclusion

Here are my final scores for An Explosion on This Wonderful World:

  • Plot – 6/10
  • Characters – 8/10
  • Animations – 7/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 7/10
  • Could have been better – 10/10
  • Overall – 7/10

So yeah, it is overall a decent series that is dragged down by the badly paced second half. And honestly, I think it could’ve been saved. Either way, I still recommend checking out the first of this series cause it’s really entertaining. Those were my thoughts on An Explosion on this Wonderful World. Let me know yours in the comments. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
