“KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World” is possibly the most popular isekai anime series among dedicated fans. The anime adaptation, which launched in 2016, is based on Natsume Akatsuki’s light novel series. The idea of “KonoSuba,” like that of other series such as “Sword Art Online” or “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” is that a character is transported to another planet and compelled to live. What distinguishes “KonoSuba” is its welcome use of humor and satire in a genre that can be overly serious at times.
“KonoSuba” is about Kazuma Sato, a Japanese shut-in who meets the Goddess Aqua and is resurrected in an MMORPG-style universe following his tragic death. Kazuma’s ultimate goal is to fight the Demon King, but his dysfunctional party’s team-up with the absent-minded Aqua, explosion-obsessed mage Megumin, and masochistic party member Darkness makes that goal appear impossible.
The anime series spawned two seasons, a film, and a chibi-style spinoff starring other popular isekai characters. Despite this, we are still waiting for a possible Season 3 of the anime series. So far, here’s what we know.
Release Date for KonoSuba Season 3
More details KonoSuba was announced on the anime’s Twitter page on July 18, 2021. The message did not indicate whether this was the third season of KonoSuba or a related spin-off project, such as a second feature film, with more details to be disclosed in a later post. Fans may be assured that KonoSuba will return in some form — though they may have to wait a bit longer, as the message stated that production was only getting underway.
Unless Studio Deen has been secretly planning a surprise release, KonoSuba season three will most likely air in 2022 — and possibly later if the project is a feature picture. Seasons one and two, as well as the film KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!, debuted in Japan in January 2016 and January 2017, respectively. In August 2019, Legend of Crimson will be launched.
During a special stream on May 28, 2022, an official confirmation arrived. KonoSuba’s comeback for a third season was confirmed, and some new visuals for the forthcoming work were revealed: The specific release date for the third season has yet to be announced, but we expect it to be sometime in 2023; 2024 does not appear to be a viable choice at this moment.
3rd Season of Kono Suba Storyline
Kazuma Sat, a young kid who dies of a heart attack after saving a girl from an oncoming truck, is the focus of KonoSuba. Upon his death, however, he is transferred to a realm resembling a role-playing game (RPG), where he soon forms a dysfunctional party with goddess Aqua, magician Megumin, and knight Darkness. KonoSuba season three will most likely adapt volumes six and seven of the light novel series like the first two seasons and film did.
From here on out, there may be spoilers, but Darkness departs to marry a nobleman in these volumes, potentially severing the misfit company of adventurers for good. As word of Kazuma’s successes over the Devil King spread, he is living comfortably. Princess Iris enlists his assistance to arrest The Chivalrous Thief Chris, who has stolen the empire’s treasure.
A conflict with the Devil King’s army, however, ends in disaster, and Kazuma is exiled in shame, separated from his trusted companions. The reborn former gamer will then have to clear his identity while also uncovering a vast royal conspiracy… Season three will most likely center on Kazuma and Megumin’s growing relationship, which was a major plot point in the 2019 film.
Cast of KonoSuba
There’s no word on the cast for season three yet, but we’re expecting the same key cast to return: Kazuma, who is he? Kazuma, the series’ protagonist, was initially a Japanese kid who frequently skipped school to play video games. After dying in a vehicle accident, he is reincarnated in the Fantasy World, where he partners up with the Goddess of Water Aqua to vanquish the Demon King and set all those oppressed by his tyranny free.
I’ve never heard of Arnie Pantoja before. Arnie Pantoja is a well-known voice actor who has portrayed Watchdog Man in the anime One Punch Man, Reno in the videogame Final Fantasy VII Remake, and, of course, Kazuma Satou in the crossover Isekai Quartet.
Trailer for Kono Suba
Although a trailer for KonoSuba season three will not be released for some time, this trailer for season two may serve as a reminder.
