It was announced a few days ago, so it gave time to prepare, but they are here: little news has left us today regarding the “KonoSuba” anime. Because yes, after an initial announcement in which they confirmed the return of the anime without saying anything else at all, today we have finally been able to count on both the confirmation of season 3 and a surprise that, personally, I did not expect in the least. : The spin-off “KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World!”.
Since there has been a double announcement here, let’s go through things in parts. So, I start below with everything that has been revealed for Season 3 that will mark the return of the central story of “KonoSuba” (credit to AIR for putting it all together).
Konosuba Season 3 all details and news about its anime
This is everything that has been announced about KonoSuba Season 3
Before starting with the information, I leave you with a new image that has been shared regarding the design of the main group:
Do you see the characters quite changed compared to previous seasons? Well, this time with more reason than ever, because there has been a definitive change of studio for the “KonoSuba” anime:
1. Season 3 of the anime will not be animated by either Studio Deen or J.C. Staff, but it will be Drive who takes care of it.
2. What has said notoriety study done? Well, the truth is that rather little; if a case, what I would take into account the most is that it is behind what will be the anime adaptation of Uzumaki (Junji Ito’s work) in addition to season 2 of To Your Eternity.
3. It must be said, on the other hand, that many of the main workers from previous seasons and anime content will return to the fray on a new occasion:
- Takaomi Kanyasaki, previously a director, will return as chief director.
- Yujiro Abe is the big news: after directing single episodes in anime like Boruto, Kaguya-sama and many more, he will be the main director of the anime.
- On the other hand, those in charge of both anime composition and character design (Makoto Uezu and Koichi Kikuta respectively) will resume their positions.
At this point there is no date nor a first teaser trailer for “KonoSuba” season 3, so in essence I can ‘assure’ you that the return of the anime will not happen before 2023.
KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World!, this is the official anime spin-off
The “KonoSuba” season 3 announcement may have left some very happy, but I’m sure today’s big surprise is the anime adaptation of the spin-off centered on Megumin. Again, before jumping to the information about this anime, I leave you with the promotional image that they have shared:
And given the first image of the spin-off, it is worth highlighting the following:
1. As with season 3 of the main anime, KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! will be animated by Drive.
2. The confirmed workers are essentially the same as in season 3, although with the distinction that in this case Takaomi Kanyasaki does not work as chief director, but as general supervisor of the project.
Also as with season 3, there is no premiere date and no first teaser trailer for this anime project. So, this is all there is for now friends, but I think this double announcement now deserves some patience on our part.
Synopsis of KonoSuba:
Kazuma Satou is an otaku hikikomori (Nini) high school boy who doesn’t usually leave the house, but when he does, a fateful and ridiculous accident ends his life. In the other world, a goddess appears before him and proposes to start his life again in a world of magic and sword, but the conditions are somewhat peculiar, so he will end up starting from scratch as an adventurer and accompanied by a goddess.
