“KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World” is undoubtedly the most well-known anime series in the isekai genre, and it’s no surprise that it’s so popular among diehard fans. The anime adaptation of the light novel series by Natsume Akatsuki, which launched 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 taken 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 sarcasm and humour in a genre that, on the whole, takes itself a little too seriously at times.
The story of “KonoSuba” revolves around Kazuma Sato, a Japanese shut-in who meets the Goddess Aqua after his tragic death and is reincarnated in an MMORPG-style universe. After all is said and done, Kazuma and his party are intended to face the Demon King, but their alliance with the forgetful Aqua, the explosion-obsessed mage Megumin, and the sadistically depressed Darkness makes it 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 programme 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 what we know thus far about the situation.
When Will Konosuba Season 3 Be Released on Dvd and Blu-ray?
Season 3 of “KonoSuba” has not yet been officially confirmed by the show’s producers. However, this does not rule out the possibility of an anime series being developed in the future entirely.
One thing that has given fans reason to hope for a new season of the anime series is a Reddit AMA from Kadokawa business producer Junichiro Tamura, which took place in January of this year. Initially, Tamura’s involvement was solely to promote and discuss about “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” but with Kadokawa Publishing creating the first two “KonoSuba” light novels, doubts regarding a Season 3 for the series began to arise. ‘KonoSuba Season 3’ has a decent chance, according to Tamura, assuming the movie goes well.
Regarding the performance of the, there has been no official statement from Kadokawa “Congratulation on your new home, KonoSuba! God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Crimson is a legendary colour.” However, according to Crunchyroll, the picture grossed 200 million yen in its first weekend of release in Japan’s theatres.
According to Anime News Network, the picture grossed $1,134,786 at its U.S. premiere, which was in addition to placing eighth in Japan during its first weekend in theatres there. According to Box Office Mojo, the picture has earned a total of $5,078,942 in worldwide box office receipts as of today. It’s possible that we’ll be years away from Season 3 if those figures turn out to be good enough to warrant it.
Because there has been no confirmation of a Season 3 two years after the release of the film, it is not unreasonable to anticipate it in 2022 or 2023 if and when it is announced.
Who Will Be a Part of the 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 employed for the “KonoSuba” movie. Kazuma was spoken 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 prospective 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 may be the company picked to create the animation for Season 3. From a production standpoint, Takaomi Kanasaki, playwright Makoto Uezu, and composer Masato Koda are all expected to return for a second instalment. All three of them were involved in the production of the first two seasons as well as the feature.
What Exactly Is the Storyline of Konosuba Season 3?
There may not be an official narrative summary for “KonoSuba” Season 3, but if it is confirmed, we will be able to find out the plot specifics if we follow the light novels on which the series is based in their entirety.
So far, the story of “KonoSuba” has been quite faithful to the plots of the light novels. There are a plethora of tale elements to pick from in “KonoSuba’s” anime, which is based on a light novel series that includes 17 volumes. The first season of “KonoSuba” is based on volumes 1 and 2 of the light novel series, while 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 function as a sequel to the first two seasons of the show. A Demon King general named Sylvia appears in the film, and the party journeys to Megumin’s hometown to battle her. Kazuma and his allies are ultimately victorious over Sylvia, despite the fact that she has managed to combine with two other generals to take on a more powerful appearance.
A season based on volume 6 of the light novel would presumably focus on Kazuma having a meeting with The Crown after word 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 company 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 examined in greater depth during Season 3 of the series.
