Ready for more seasons?
KonoSuba, or Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! is one of the most popular series in the isekai genre. The series was created by Natsume Akatsuki and began serialization in December 2012. It tells the story of a boy named Kazuma Sato who dies and is sent to an MMORPG world where he is forced to join a party to earn money and survive. However, his teammates end up being a useless goddess named Aqua, an archwizard named Megumin, and a crusader named Darkness. Read on to find out about the latest updates.
The last time we saw the KonoSuba team was in 2019’s Legend of Crimson. Then came an announcement in July 2021 that new projects are on the way. Everything had been quiet since then, and it’s almost been a year. But last night, the anime’s Twitter handle tweeted out that a live streaming event is coming on May 28. The event is called “KONOSUBA Channel New Information Reveal Quest Special” and is expected to feature the cast and crew as they take a quest and give us updates on what’s to come.
This update was enough to get fans excited, and speculations started coming. Many suggested that it will be the long-awaited third season, while others say it can be another movie.
Main story and spin-offs
The main manga gave way to a light novel series that aired from October 2013 to May 2020. It expanded the storyline further and gave the characters more depth. All that said, there is enough content to create more seasons, and even movies. Given that KonoSuba stays solid throughout, everything will be well-received.
