The Champions return to a world full of explosions, giant frogs, and useless goddesses in our review of the first five episodes of Konosuba season 2. The first season of Konosuba was a refreshingly funny hit in the midst of an endless stream of shows featuring the tired trope of a useless nerd boy appearing in a RPG-inspired fantasy world full of cute girls and quests.
