This anime deserves a better OP intro. This will be in the top running of this season.

Completely agree. Was my favorite first episode so far. So happy this is getting a series. It deserves it.

The movies were simply fantastic so I expect the TV series to be just as fantastic, I can deal with lower visual quality (still haven't watched) cuz this is probably my pick for BDs of the season.

I just watched the first episode, having never seen the films, and... isn't this basically just the Japanese equivalent of The Worst Witch?

If so, and assuming it can match Tim Curry singing about how wonderful halloween is, I'm sold. It should be an entertaining diversion.

It is, and it's also much like Harry Potter.

Well, pretty much all of them are connected in teh same or similar setting so we shouldn't be very surprised by now :)

I like how they still didn't get to Chariot, it's going to be amusing :D

This is the only series I'm looking forward to this season.

Side note: what's the best sub group to watch for this? I checked HorribleSub's website and it doesn't look like they're subbing it, and I didn't recognize any of the other groups on Nyaa.

Konosuba is the highest level of ridiculous humour, even the visuals are trolling you, seriously, it's very funny in the comedy part, although sometimes it reminds me of Pain Arc in Naruto anime.

Other than the setting, I don't really consider either to be very similar to Harry Potter though, personally. The Philosopher's Stone was a bit more similar in tone, but it diverged fairly sharply after that. The Worst Witch is very much a kids' show, and this feels the same.

This is the only series I'm looking forward to this season.

I went with ASenshi, who seem pretty good. That said, I ended up watching the entire thing with the subs turned off, so I can't comment on the quality of the actual subs themselves.

It's definitely a kid's show.
But it's a kid's show done right.
You know those times you watch a children series with your sister/brother/niece/nephew/cousin/mother/etc. and you find you're enjoying it more than any other series all year?
Yeah, this is it. It is absolutely entertaining  ;D

Because we can!

Especially since we all seen the movie already, or at least most of us :)
