This will be short since this is season 2 so I won't have to repeat the plot or reintroduce characters. As for new characters, not much much introduced aside from Vanir. You have to watch the OVA since that introduced Yunyun who plays a minor role in season 2.
Pros and Cons
Since season 1 is built on introducing characters and build the world, season 2's advantage is to further build on the characters we have and progress the plot. However, in terms of plot's goal with Kazuma's goal to beat the Demon king, we don't even go in there. We haphazardly bump into "characters' events" and missions after Kazuma's ordeal in the beginning of season 2 with his trial due to him blowing up a rich guy's home from season 1.
Which characters get spotlight and maybe development?
We get a glimpse into Darkness's background when she promises to marry Walther Alexei Barnes, son of the man whose home was blown by Kazuma. We got teased on seeing YunYun and Megumin's backstory in one episode but not much. I suspect this episode was to promote the light novel side stories on Megumin, Megumin's sister, Komekko, and Yunyun. For the end of the series, we get some background on Wiz's position and prestige as the ice arch wizard for the Demon King and Aqua's crazy cult followers. For Eris, we get to see her briefly. That's pretty much it. The anime's focus is pretty much on Kazuma and the girls as they are the main fan service for the audience whether through comedy or ecchi fan service.
Going by what we seen in season 2's 10 episode run, you may or may not enjoy season 2 if it didn't give enough of your favorite character.
I would say season 1 was better than season 2 since the finale for season 2 was rushed and not as over the top in action and comedic shenanigans. There wasn't much at stake in season 2 or reward for the battle in season 2. In the end, I still recommend fans to continue watching the series and completing season 2 if you love KonoSuba.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
