KONOSUBA is stuffed with memorable characters, every with their very own ridiculous quirks that make them an indispensable member of the primary get together. Within the case of Megumin, who might probably flip down the advantages that come alongside along with her absurdly highly effective Explosion magic? In spite of everything, it's actually the one magic she'll use, and he or she usually fully passes out after a single bombastic casting. Okay, perhaps this doesn't sound like such an important deal in spite of everything, however Megumin's obsession with explosions impressed us to run the numbers and see simply how helpful this method will be.
On this extremely scientific examine, I rewatched all of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! and took be aware of each time Megumin says "Explosion!" That wasn't sufficient, although, so I factored in what she exploded in every episode, if she destroyed or simply broken it, and whether or not or not she had any help.
Sadly, we go fully Megumin-less till nearly 10 minutes into the second episode, the place we first get to witness her supreme energy as an Archwizard of the Crimson Demon Clan. So, with that in thoughts, let's see how a lot havoc her Explosion magic wreaks in Season 1.
Charting Megumin's Explosions by Season
The second season throws some fascinating wrinkles into the combination. It's not nearly what number of occasions she blows one thing up or how badly she damages it, so don't let the numbers journey you up.
As a bonus spherical, right here's a chart marking every precise second Megumin forged her mighty spell within the KONOSUBA: Legend of Crimson anime movie:
At first look, it could appear as if KONOSUBA Season 2 had fewer explosions, which might imply that Megumin isn't on the high of her sport, proper? This couldn't be farther from the reality! If you have a look at what Megumin did along with her explosions, from coaching on issues that aren't occupied castles to utilizing them as distractions and taking down or damaging enemies, they have been way more purposeful and exact.
Megumin's level-up will be seen towards the tip of Season 1 with the incapacitation of the Destroyer. She is method much less reckless in Season 2, and her explosions are usually used as a part of a — shock of shocks — technique the complete get together devised. WHAT IS GOING ON, KONOSUBA? Even when she tousled and couldn't hearth off her explosion in Episode 6, it was as a result of Kazuma drained her of a few of her magic.
Briefly, by the tip of the second season, Megumin isn't simply highly effective … she's extraordinarily helpful!
Megumin's Explosion: Harm vs. Destruction
In relation to the effectiveness of Megumin's energy, you will get an thought of the harm she does with every casting all through the collection. Let's check out a fast overview of her harm vs. destruction ratio. I thought of foes (and buddies) "broken" once they have been capable of stroll away from the battle and reside to struggle one other day. "Destroyed" means, basically, that they're useless or in any other case now not purposeful. Giant teams are bundled into single targets. Then we’ve a 3rd class: The uncommon "Miss" or "No Goal."
I'm not going to take the off-screen implied explosions into consideration, however relaxation assured I'm actually at all times eager about them. Notice: In some instances, single explosions each broken targets and destroyed others, so the numbers received't add up completely.
So, what's the large takeaway right here? It might not seem like Megumin has a ton of accuracy or management at her disposal, nevertheless it's not possible to miss simply how important she is to the get together as an entire. As useful as these charts could also be, although, you really want to see Megumin in motion for your self to understand her overwhelming energy. When you haven't watched KONOSUBA, there's no higher time than the current. And when you have watched it, simply do what I've been doing: Watch it time and again from starting to finish!
