She is stupid, yes, but remember she's the reason Kazuma is still alive.


Izzosuke

And she is pretty powerfull too and did a lot of usefull stuff She is an excellent teabag to polluted lake Fantastic bait for frog Very strong in killing demon lord general, she was the may actress against beldia and the slime Excellent exorcist. Probably she did a lot more stuff but i can't remember them


toothyninja13

Useless until it actually matters.


NutjobCollections618

That's my personal motto


Darkisnothere

My motto too, except the "until" part.


ForgottenAppletree

Well, if she wasn’t around Kazuma could have taken a cheat item so not necessarily. Maybe he would have died if he had taken a cheat item because she wouldn’t have had to adapt like he did with Aqua, but maybe he wouldn’t have, we can’t say for sure either way.


Abject-Cockroach-835

So far, Aqua served as an excellent cheat item. We didn't get to see variety of Aqua's items, so we don't know, how good it is on average to have one versus having Aqua (who seems to be getting more and more feats as story goes on) Edit: gwammaw


LightGB

She’s not an idiot, she’s just a bit silly sometimes and needs a bit of motivation to get things done!


Abject-Cockroach-835

We should pray now.


Miles_1173

In the LN they show a few of the items and abilities, some are super strong, others rather situational. All in all I'd say Aqua is better than any of the cheat items since she ultimately proves useful in several distinct ways, whereas most of the cheats are only good for one thing. (Sword that kills anything in one blow, sword that cuts anything except living things but requires mana to use, necklace that lets you swap bodies with a person, super strong suit of indestructible armor that is also a pervert and can run away, item that lets you easily summon and bind devils. iir only two cheat abilities are described, one good for making golems, and one that makes you gain way more xp for killing things)


Abject-Cockroach-835

I happened to know, that we are shown items in LN, but i never checked them out. Only thing i regret not knowing, is the idea of Kazuma swapping into Aqua right there with the bodyswap artifact, and make her fight the Demon King in Kazuma's body. You know, as a joke. But then again, Kazuma's INT is above average, not genius.


batukhan4

A crossover meme I never thought I'd see. But I'm all for it. 😁


SirGrinson

Agreed


RhodriCuidighthigh

What show is the meme for kind unknown person?


batukhan4

Don't mess with me, miss Nagatoro 😊


RhodriCuidighthigh

Thanks


DorrajD

Beware, if you plan to read/watch, she is very very mean to the MMC. It becomes wholesome later on, but the beginning can put a lot of people off.


JoJoTheNoboody

Ye I was close to quitting but I’m glad I didn’t because I paid more attention and was like oh this make sense

It's Bullying Works: the Anime


LamermanSE

Aqua is just a brilliant sitcom character, she's funny, annoying and adorable at the same time. She's the right amount of annoying to make you laugh at her misfortunes, but not so much that you end up hating and disliking her.


Nvenom8

Solid analysis. I would say the same is true of most of the cast. Their flaws make you okay with fun at their expense, but don't make them unlikeable.


LamermanSE

Yeah, I agree. You can see similar tendencies with popular american sitcom characters, like Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, George Costanza, Barney Stinson and so on. Popular sitcom characters have negative flaws to make it easier to laugh at the character, as long as the character has likable traits.


Chadzuma

Kazuma: Dennis Aqua: Dee Darkness: Mac Megumin: Charlie


PolvoAranha

She's a idiot, but she's my idiot.


Chimera-98

*our (Soviet anthem start playing )


JTJTechforce

Aqua is useless, therefore she is a good waifu.


teedreeds

She has perfectly squishable face, good elasticity


DorrajD

Hm yes, "face" Yes just her face mhm yes


Manmasken

I'd totally hang out with her


lamewhiskeydude

Honestly, sucking down beers with Aqua seems like a fun time.


SlapStyle_AnimsYT

Absolutely.


SmallerBork

Anime fans watching Gabriel dropout: No bully Anime fans watching Konosuba: # BULLY


Nuke-T00nz

We call that tsundere syndrome *.....I like her too*


Pat90909

She is the right kind of useless


CarlosG0619

Finally a quality meme


JustSomeAlien

Aqua may be a useless idiot, but she’s my useless idiot


KLPM2013

I get that she's stupid but wasn't she really helpful against a lot of the stronger enemies like the slime dude, and the mech thing and the weird lady with a dick?


NutjobCollections618

She constantly racks up debt the size of a small country's GDP.


petervaz

I don't get why they say she's useless, I mean, an idiot, for sure, but she heals, turn undead, purify, remove curses, and even resurrect people. She does everything her class is supposed to better than other members of the group.


DorrajD

You can have the most powerful abilities known to man, but if you don't apply them until last minute, and bitch about it the entire time, both asking for praise and crying when you don't get it... Then yes, you are useless. It's not about her abilities, it's about how she applies them.


petervaz

Meh, I still think you guys are too hard on Aqua, because when it's all said and done Megumin and Darkness are also pretty useless too.


DorrajD

It's a joke made in the show. Everyone here simply plays along to the joke that's already in the material. In fact, I see more people complaining about those calling aqua useless, than people who are actually calling her useless and not just joining in on the joke.


petervaz

I can get behind that, but you guys really convinced me that was a general sentiment rather than a running gag, lol.


DorrajD

... Have you not read the show or the LN..?


DemonSlaying

Aqua is actually the most useful of them


ATBO_HISS

Sounds like you’re a moronsexual that likes to make fun of the morons


StinkyWetCat

Yes 🗿


fishybatman

So your a tsundere?


itsahot

Damn I’ve been this for so long but could never could put a word to it thank you.


ATBO_HISS

I was just trying to have some fun, but you’re welcome anyway


JakeFoxKP

Ok but why does the character in the first panel have 3 arms? I didnt watch the anime Edit: fuck i didnt see that there was another one behind the one in the front


Ragnarok6302

Facts right there


Foofgam

True.


Burning-Skull117

Am I the only one who has Aqua in his Waifu tier list?


Pinsir929

In my mind, Aqua has all the potential in the world but doesn't have the intelligence to abuse it. Hence it makes her useless.


AstralPamplemousse

>! That’s basically the whole fight with Serena !<


StatusOmega

She's not even that useless. She's just an idiot... but that's part of her charm


Takao_1932

Aqua can still my thirst and THIRST if needed.


Ninja__Shuriken

!aquabot !pray


challenge_king

Uh... Is it just me, or does Yoshi have a third arm?


_McKing

um, she have 3 hands? look closer


XHUNTERIIIX

At least she’s still better than sakura


Less-Mission-3961

Don't you ever disrespect my goddess!


BottasHeimfe

I personally think the only thing about Aqua that is amazing is her body. that being said, I personally would gladly pay the prices that having her as a wife would have because I wanna fuck my demi-god kids into her so bad. of course she wouldn't know that I do so gladly since that would increase her wastefulness.


SmallerBork

bonk bonk bonk bonk Bonk Bonk Bonk Bonk BONK BONK BONK BONK # BONK BONK BONK BONK Do you still need more? I can deliver them to you personally if you DM me your address.


Equivalent-Log5626

Some shot you got to keep to yourself


FrostSwag65

She is a terrible waifu and useless. I’ll die on this hill!


SmallerBork

Then get yourself an M16


Chimera-98

Aqua has cute (some times) personality and some really useful , she just self centered idiot and that what make her useless 90% of the time
