A “Konosuba” Celebration: 3 Seasons, a Spinoff, and a Movie
The overall story is based on the light novel series by Natsume Akatsuki and Kurone Mishima. Takaomi. Kanasaki and Yujiro Abe (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) will be taking over the executive helm with this series. At the same time, the original voice cast for the series will also return.
The story for Konosuba is described as
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 named Aqua, and asks if he would like to go to another world. However, he is only able to bring one thing with him. To be spiteful after being made fun of, Kazuma decides to bring the goddess herself. Together, they are transported to a fantasy world filled with adventure, and ruled by a demon king. Now, Kazuma only wants to live in peace, but Aqua wants to solve as many of this world’s problems as possible.
Many have praised Konosuba for its outlandish humor and funny characters. While the humor is definitely over the top and random, the story presented also gives an insight into friendship, life, and what it means to be truly happy. Since its release, the franchise now consists of games, a movie, the original anime, and another spinoff series titled Isekai Quartet.
As of now, both seasons of Konosuba are on HBO Max and Crunchyroll. The series is available in English dub and the original Japanese with subtitles. As of now, there is no release date for Konosuba 3.
