Konosuba Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot : Updates You Need to Know Today

There is perhaps no other anime in the isekai genre that is as revered by ardent fans as “KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World.” The anime adaptation, which launched in 2016, is based on Natsume Akatsuki’s light novel series.

As with other series such as “Sword Art Online” or “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” “KonoSuba” revolves around a character who is taken to another planet and compelled to live. However, what distinguishes “KonoSuba” is its welcome inclusion of humour and sarcasm in a genre that might take itself a little too seriously at times.

“KonoSuba” centres on Kazuma Sato, a Japanese recluse who meets the Goddess Aqua and is resurrected in an MMORPG-style universe following his tragic death.

Kazuma’s ultimate objective is to face 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 seem impossible.

Two seasons, a film, and a chibi-style spinoff programme starring other popular isekai series characters have been produced for the anime series. However, despite everything, we are still waiting for a possible Season 3 of the anime series. Here is what we currently know.

When will KonoSuba Season 3 be released?

Season 3 of “KonoSuba” has not yet been officially confirmed by the show’s producers. However, this does not rule out the possibility of an anime series being developed in the future entirely.

One thing that has given fans reason to hope for a new season of the anime series is a Reddit AMA from Kadokawa business producer Junichiro Tamura, which took place in January of this year.

Initially, Tamura’s involvement was solely to promote and discuss about “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” but with Kadokawa Publishing creating the first two “KonoSuba” light novels, doubts regarding a Season 3 for the series began to arise. ‘KonoSuba Season 3’ has a decent chance, according to Tamura, assuming the movie goes well.

Regarding the performance of the, there has been no official statement from Kadokawa “Congratulation on your new home, KonoSuba! God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Crimson is a legendary colour.” However, according to Crunchyroll, the picture grossed 200 million yen in its first weekend of release in Japan’s theatres.

According to Anime News Network, the picture grossed $1,134,786 at its U.S. premiere, which was in addition to placing eighth in Japan during its first weekend in theatres there. According to Box Office Mojo, the picture has earned a total of $5,078,942 in worldwide box office receipts as of today.

It’s possible that we’ll be years away from Season 3 if those figures turn out to be good enough to warrant it. Because there has been no confirmation of a Season 3 two years after the release of the film, it is not unreasonable to anticipate it in 2022 or 2023 if and when it is announced.

With no confirmation of “KonoSuba” Season 3 yet, no cast has been announced. However, given the fact that the voice cast from Seasons 1 and 2 was also used in the “KonoSuba” film, it’s probably reasonable to presume they’d return for a future Season 3.

Kazuma was spoken by Jun Fukushima, Aqua was voiced by Sora Amamiya, Darkness was voiced by Ai Kayano, and Megumin was voiced by Rie Takahashi.

The production team for a prospective third season of “KonoSuba” may not be as well-defined as the voice cast. According to Anime News Network, Studio Deen animated the first two seasons of the series. However, J.C. Staff was in charge of animation for the film.

Again, if the film’s performance was deemed satisfactory by those in charge of the series, J.C. Staff may be chosen to animate a Season 3. From a production standpoint, Takaomi Kanasaki, Makoto Uezu, and Masato Koda are all expected to return. Each of the three played a role in the first two seasons and the feature.

What is the plot of Season 3 of KonoSuba?

While there is no official narrative synopsis for “KonoSuba” Season 3, if confirmed, we can deduce the storey specifics based on the light novels upon which the series is based. Thus far, “KonoSuba” has remained fairly faithful to the storylines of the light novels.

Additionally, with 17 volumes of the light novel series, “KonoSuba’s” anime features a plethora of plot components. The first season of “KonoSuba” is based on the first two volumes of the light novel series, while the second season is based on the third and fourth volumes. Additionally, as the film was based on volume 5, it appeared to be a sequel to the first two seasons.

The party travels to Megumin’s hometown and battles Sylvia, a Demon King general. Kazuma and his companions eventually beat Sylvia, despite her ability to unite with two other generals and assume a more formidable form.

The following season will most likely be based on volume 6 of the light novel and will focus on Kazuma meeting with The Crown following his party’s victory over the Demon King. This rendezvous with royalty, however, ends in disaster, and Kazuma is briefly separated from his party.

Additionally, the film focuses primarily on Kazuma and Megumin’s blossoming romantic relationship. As a result, it’s likely that this will be explored further in Season 3 of the series.
