Was the KonoSuba movie that came out in August 2019 the end of the anime? Let's explore.
'KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World!' which is known as Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! in Japanese was a big hit when it premiered for the first time. The hit anime show is originally based on a light novel series of the same name. The light novel series was published for the first time on October 1, 2013, and then the year later, on September 9, 2014, it became a manga series of the same name. Three years after the publication of the novel series, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! was made into an anime show, and season 1 called KonoSuba premiered for the first time on January 14, 2016. It didn't take long for the anime to become popular, and hence, fans fell in love with the anime series, and soon KonoSuba got renewed for the second season. The second installment premiered a year after the release of season 1, which was on January 12, 2017. Fans also got a chance to watch a few OVAs and a movie that released after the second season, however, their heart awaits the arrival of season 3 of KonoSuba. Here is everything we know about the third installment.
The second season of KonoSuba premiered for the first time on January 12, 2017. Ever since then, fans have been speculating and throwing their guesses for season 3, and many claim that the show's creators have plans for the third season. However, there is no official renewal news for season 3 as of now. A few sites are reporting that the new season has been confirmed, but this is false.
The movie 'KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson' was released on August 30, 2019, keeping the flame alive. But if we are to see a new season of KonoSuba, we can expect it sometime in 2021.
For those who have failed to follow the TV anime series season 1 and season 2 of KONOSUBA -God's blessing on this wonderful world! can now watch on Crunchyroll. Going with how the streaming service describes the anime series, "After a traffic accident, Kazuma Sato's disappointingly brief life was supposed to be over, but he wakes up to see a beautiful girl before him. She claims to be a goddess, Aqua and asks if he would like to go to another world and bring only one thing with him. Kazuma decides to bring the goddess herself, and they are transported to a fantasy world filled with adventure, ruled by a demon king. Now Kazuma only wants to live in peace, but Aqua wants to solve many of this world's problems, and the demon king will only turn a blind eye for so long…"
If we go with what the producer has to say about the renewal, then the answer, fortunately, is YES! According to Kadokawa producerJunichiro Tamura, the chances are incredibly high that fans might get a chance to see season 3 of this fantastic anime TV series. However, the decision will depend on how the movie, 'KONOSUBA -God's Blessing On This Wonderful World!' performed. Tamura joined the Reddit AMA to discuss 'The Rising Of The Shield Hero' anime, which is among his latest project. During this discussion, he was asked about the renewal of KonoSuba for the third time, to which he replied, "KonoSuba Season 3 has a good chance if the movie does well." Another thing he explained was that the decision-making process for another season of any show depends on "mostly depends on the popularity of the show."
