At one time, everyone thought KonoSuba season 3 can never happen but there are new sources now which tell us a completely different story. If you want to get more information about the release date of KonoSuba season 3 then you are at the right place. First of all, let us look back at what KonoSuba is all about.
KonoSuba is not your everyday Isekai anime. This anime got extremely popular the moment it was released, not just in Japan but in the whole world. KonoSuba gives the comedy genre a whole new meaning with its unique parodies and jokes.
Other shows give you great stories and themes but KonoSuba ignores all that and focuses on pure entertainment! KonoSuba is extremely over the top, but it manages to execute its quirkiness in a way that is super hilarious and lighthearted. KonoSuba is one of those anime that you can just watch casually without caring much about the story. Let us look at the plot of KonoSuba:
KonoSuba Season 1 Plot:
After dying a very pathetic death on his way back from buying a game, high school student Kazuma Satou finds himself sitting before a beautiful but obnoxious goddess named Aqua. She gives him two options: continue on to heaven or reincarnate in a real fantasy world!
Choosing to start a new life, Kazuma is quickly tasked with defeating a Demon King who is terrorizing villages. But before he goes, he can choose one item of any kind to aid him in his quest, and the future hero selects Aqua. But Kazuma has made a grave mistake because Aqua is completely useless!
Unfortunately, their troubles don’t end here; it turns out that living in such a world is far different from how it plays out in a game. Instead of going on a thrilling adventure, the duo must first work to pay for their living expenses.
KonoSuba anime is a pretty close adaption of the source material and is extremely funny. All the voice actors have done a great job in both versions, the English dub, and Japanese. This gag anime really changed the meaning of the funny genre and gave us something entirely new. The animation in this anime is also very fluent and the character designs are all very original.
KonoSuba Light Novel:
KonoSuba anime actually got adapted from the light novel. The light novel of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo! is extremely popular and read by a lot of fans of the series all over the world. The light novel has a very easy to understand narrative structure so, it can even be enjoyed by someone who doesn’t even like reading.
The light novel is way ahead in the story and the anime version really has a lot of catching up to do.
KonoSuba manga is very beautifully drawn and has a lot of fans. Some even say that the manga is way better than the anime and light novel. The art style of the manga is very clean and the narrative structure is also amazing. KonoSuba is one of that manga that can seriously get you hooked.
KonoSuba Season 2:
The season 2 of KonoSuba is just as good as season 1, if not better. KonoSuba Season 2 received a lot of backlash at its release because of its sloppy animation. But, in my personal opinion, season 2 was actually better than season 1. Season 2 made the art style a little sloppy because it is a comedy anime. A sloppy art style makes the show even funnier. Other than that, there were no complaints about the second season and it was loved by the whole anime community.
When will KonoSuba Season 3 release?
If we go with what the producer has to say about the renewal, then the answer, fortunately, is YES!
According to Junichiro Tamura, a business producer for anime at KADOKAWA, the chances are extremely high that fans might get a chance to see season 3 of this amazing anime TV series. However, the decision will depend on how the movie, ” KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson” performs.
Tamura joined the Reddit AMA to discuss ‘The Rising Of The Shield Hero‘ anime, which is his latest project. During this discussion, he was asked about the renewal of KonoSuba for the third time, to which he replied, “Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo season 3 has a good chance if the movie does well.”
KonoSuba Season 3 Release Date:
KonoSuba Season 3 seemed impossible at one point. And now, everyone thought this show has gotten irrelevant, but it is just as relevant as ever. The show just recently got dubbed into English in 2019 and a Konosuba movie ( KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson ) was released in 2019 too. The upcoming anime film is going to continue the misadventures and the journey of Kazuma, Aqua, Megumin, Darkness and the rest of the KONOSUBA cast who are ready to go on the land of the Crimson Demons.
Considering the release of a Konosuba dub, and a movie, we can clearly see that this show is still very relevant. The show is very popular and will make a comeback for a season 3! Season 3 has not been announced yet but it could come out somewhere around late 2020 or 2021.
