Well, Konosuba: Love for These Clothes of Desire certainly has its eye-opening moments. This is a game that likes to get downright dirty in places, and embraces (with gusto) every possible sexualisation trope you can imagine in anime. It has a ball doing so, and as long asnarratives amuse you,
It is, for the most part, a visual novel, but itsome time management features thrown in for good measure. The narrative is wacky and There’s a group of “heroes” in a fantasy MMO-style world. They all have highly exaggerated character types. There’s the mage who, uh, blows her load early and wastefully. There’s a warrior a masochistic streak (to put that mildly). And so on. These characters discover a magic artefact that allows them to make clothing, that it’s also they can break the curse, their personalities will invert themselves. The only way to break the curse is to make clothing, and so they embark on that exact quest.
Konosuba: Love for These Clothes of Desire follows on from a light novel and anime series, and it doesn’t bother filling you in with whatbefore the game. I didn’t realise that it was a genuine isekai (with the main in the “real world” before being dumped in his harem) until started researching the game to review it. It doesn’t necessarily matter since self-contained and so ridiculous that “making sense” was never going to be a priority anyway.
You do, however. If a sentence like this causes you to roll your can skip this entire game: “In this small chest of mine hides a secret! An innocence and virtuousness that breast-havers can’t ever reclaim!” The game’s humour also tends to be in the service of some pretty straightforward fan service and sexualisation, rather than subversive to it, so consequently the jokes come off as intensely thirsty and pervy. Again, it’s time for what it is, but this is humour for everyone.
As a game,like a classic Atelier, I guess. You’ve got a certain number of days to complete quests or undertake activities will yield you materials and money, which you then use to craft a piece of clothing. The timelines and requirements are relatively to imagine people will struggle too much to craft all the clothing that the main story requires of them. But the break novel sequences is appreciated, and it’s a nicely structured system.
As far as the costumesyou’ll just about everything that you’d expect to see Halloween costume stores (as well as swimsuits, of course). School uniforms (white shirt and rainy weather and all), maid and nurse clothing. There are also some side can complete things up even further.
If only it didn’t look like it wasKonosuba’s art is functional carries across the idea of the raunch, but it really needed to look more like Date A Live or similar to really sell the idea that it’s sexy to go with the funny. Make no mistake about it, Konosuba wants to sexiness through its art – the characters are designed to be more than just vehicles for comedy, and there is an effort to get a lot of detail into key art scenes and the like. The art team just to work with.
Konosuba was a fun project for PQube to localise. It – like the material it’s based on – isclassic, but it’s playful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, even if there are times that you wish you didn’t find it quite as amusing as you did.
