“KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World” is probably the most well-known anime series in the isekai genre, and it’s no surprise that it’s so popular among hardcore fans. The anime adaptation of the light novel series by Natsume Akatsuki, which premiered in 2016, is based on the novel series. A similar premise to other series such as “Sword Art Online” or “The Rising of the Shield Hero” is that a character is transported to another world and must fight for his or her survival there. However, what distinguishes “KonoSuba” from other films in the genre is its welcome use of satire and comedy in a genre that, on the whole, takes itself a little too seriously at times.
The storey of “KonoSuba” revolves around Kazuma Sato, a Japanese shut-in who meets the Goddess Aqua after his untimely death and is reincarnated in an MMORPG-style world. After all is said and done, Kazuma and his party are supposed to face the Demon King, but their alliance with the forgetful Aqua, the explosion-obsessed magician Megumin, and the sadistically depressed Darkness makes that seem like an impossible task for their dysfunctional group.
In addition to two seasons of anime television, a movie was made based on the series, as well as a chibi-style spinoff show starring other popular isekai series characters. However, even after all of this, we’re still waiting for a possible Season 3 of the anime series to air. Here’s everything we know so far about the situation.
Konosuba Season 3 Release Date
The release date for Konosuba Season 3 has not yet been announced, and the only thing that has been confirmed in the development of a new anime project. According to my estimation, Konosuba season 3 will be released in January 2023, with the release date being January 2023.
On average, it takes between 12 and 18 months after a new season has been confirmed before the new season is made available for viewing. Princes Connect is currently in development with the help of Takaomi Kanazaki (Konosuba’s director). Season 2 of Re: Dive is currently airing.
That is why, even if Konosuba season 3 is released in 2022, it will not be the final season. The first two seasons of Konosuba were released in January, which means the third season will most likely be released in January 2023. I’m curious as to why Kadokawa made the announcement so quickly.
Konosuba Season 3 Cast
There has also been no confirmation of a third season of “KonoSuba,” and no cast members have been announced. It’s probably safe to assume that the voice cast from Seasons 1 and 2 will also be returning for a potential Season 3 given the fact that they were also used for the “KonoSuba” movie. Kazuma was voiced by Jun Fukushima, Aqua was voiced by Sora Amamiya, Darkness was voiced by Ai Kayano, and Megumin was voiced by Rie Takahashi.
The production team for a potential third season of “KonoSuba” may not be as well-defined as the voice cast for the show. According to Anime News Network, the animation studio responsible for the first two seasons of the series was Studio Deen. J.C. Staff, on the other hand, was in charge of the animation for the film. Once again, if the film was deemed successful by the people in charge of the series, J.C. Staff could be the studio chosen to create the animation for Season 3. From a production standpoint, Takaomi Kanasaki, scriptwriter Makoto Uezu, and composer Masato Koda are all expected to return for a second installment. All three of them were involved in the production of the first two seasons as well as the film.
Konosuba Season 3 Plot
There may not be an official plot synopsis for “KonoSuba” Season 3, but if it is confirmed, we will be able to figure out the plot details if we follow the light novels on which the series is based in their entirety. So far, the story of “KonoSuba” has been fairly faithful to the stories of the light novels. There are a plethora of story elements to choose from in “KonoSuba’s” anime, which is based on a light novel series that has 17 volumes. The first season of “KonoSuba” is based on volumes 1 and 2 of the light novel series, and Season 2 is based on volumes 3 and 4 of the light novel series, respectively. In addition, because it was based on volume 5, the film appeared to serve as a sequel to the first two seasons of the show. A Demon King general named Sylvia appears in the film, and the party travels to Megumin’s hometown to battle her. Kazuma and his allies are ultimately victorious over Sylvia, despite the fact that she has managed to fuse with two other generals to take on a more powerful appearance.
A season based on volume 6 of the light novel would likely focus on Kazuma having a meeting with The Crown afterword of his party’s successes in fighting the Demon King spread throughout the world. This meeting with royalty, on the other hand, ends in disaster, and Kazuma even finds himself separated from the rest of his party for a while. In addition, the movie placed a strong emphasis on the developing romantic relationship between Kazuma and Megumin. Therefore, it’s likely that this will be explored in greater depth during Season 3 of the series.
