KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! 3 Episode 7 Review

Megumin & Darkness’s Special Relationship

KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! 3 Episode 7 showed us the other side of Darkness. By that, I mean the side of Darkness we’re pretty used to seeing. But, how Darkness acts in Episode 7 is very different than how she acts in Episode 6.

Last week, we saw a very responsible Darkness. And this week, we saw the opposite. Even Aqua, the useless Goddess, picked up on this. She asked Darkness what happened to the version of her they saw while staying in the capital. I’m glad the characters noticed this, too.

Now, I want to address that I liked Darkness a lot in this episode. This goes against what I just said in my review of Episode 6. Last week, I said I preferred the responsible Darkness. And, I said Darkness’s masochistic tendencies were getting stale.

Well, I can admit when I’m wrong. Episode 7 proved that Darkness can still be funny while being a masochist. But, I think there are two reasons why I found her funnier in this episode compared to others. We got the contrast with the previous episode, and her masochism had to do with more than only Kazuma.

Starting with the contrast, seeing Darkness act like this right after seeing her acting normal added to the comedy. And, that could be why I liked seeing responsible Darkness, too. It may have been because it contrasted with how she usually acts.

Next, her masochism involved other people this time. Most of the time, Kazuma plays the sadist to Darkness’s masochist. But, not in this episode. At the start of the episode, we saw Megumin fulfilling that role. And, later on, Vanir was the sadist. However, in Vanir’s case, Kazuma was still indirectly involved.

We Were Robbed

Okay, so I have more to say about the part of the episode when Vanir interrogated Darkness. This was probably my favorite part of Episode 7. But we were robbed. This part could have been so much better with one simple change.

What am I talking about? When Darkness “tried on” Megumin’s outfit in the mirror, the episode peaked. However, imagine how much better it would have been if she had actually tried on Megumin’s clothes. I needed to see Darkness squeeze into the clothing of someone of Megumin’s size.

You know I’m right. We. Were. Robbed.

But all hope isn’t lost. There’s still a possibility that we get to see this, or something similar, in a future episode. After all, we now know that Darkness is interested in cute clothes. And, we now know that she thinks Megumin’s clothes are cute, which they are.

Also, don’t forget that Kazuma has made Darkness wear other embarrassing outfits before. Specifically, back in Episode 2, he had her wear a revealing maid outfit. So, since he’s now aware that Darkness is too embarrassed to wear cute clothes, what will he make her wear next? I hope it’s Megumin’s outfit.

Unfortunately, the most important person was missing when Vanir revealed this secret: Megumin. Kazuma and Aqua know that Darkness thought about trying her clothes on. But, Megumin doesn’t. How do you think she would have responded to that?

If Megumin had been there, her imagination could have been how we saw Darkness actually try it on. Upon hearing how Darkness thought about it, Megumin could have pictured what it would look like in her mind. And, upon doing so, I could see her becoming enraged when her clothes didn’t fit over Darkness’s bust.

Aqua and the Dragon’s Egg

Something I almost forgot happened in this episode was Aqua purchasing a dragon’s egg. At least, the man who sold it to her told her it was a dragon’s egg. And, Aqua being Aqua, she believed him and paid all the money she had for it.

Naturally, Kazuma assumes Aqua got scammed. He thinks it’s going to turn out to be a regular bird egg, which I can’t blame him for. But I’m not so sure that this dragon’s egg is fake. I think there’s a real possibility that it’s a genuine dragon’s egg.

If it is real, Aqua will get to gloat and rub it in Kazuma’s face. However, that might be the only difference between it being real and fake. Regardless of which it turns out to be, this egg could end up as a new “character” like Chomosuke.

Would it be funnier if this new character is a dragon or a bird? I’m not sure. My gut says that a bird would be funnier. But I also want to see smug Aqua when it hatches into a dragon. So, in either case, it should be good content.

I was also considering the possibility that a hydra might hatch from the egg. At the end of the episode, the gang is on a hydra-hunting quest, and the hydra shows up right beneath Aqua. This traumatic situation could scar her, leading to some laughs if a baby hydra comes out of the egg.

Finally, it’s possible that the egg never hatches. It might not be fertilized. If that’s the case, I have a feeling someone’s going to serve it up as food. Someone, likely Kazuma, might serve it up to Aqua. Or, Aqua might decide to cook it herself after finding out it’s worthless.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of KonoSuba 3 Episode 7? Do you think we’ll get to see the endurance competition Megumin was helping Darkness train for? Do you wish we got to see Darkness actually trying on Megumin’s outfit? And, what do you think will hatch out of Aqua’s egg?
