During a recent live stream “KonoSuba Channel from Isekai Museum,” an announcement was made regarding the production of the new “KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!” anime, along with the poster for it. Though it is not clear whether the new project will be a movie or a show, and the release date along further details are also not revealed yet, but the staff has asked the fans to be patient as more information will be revealed.
The original light novel series was written by Natsume Akatsuki and ended last year. The novel spawned two seasons of anime and a movie titled “KonoSuba – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World – Legend of Crimson”. Our protagonist Kazuma is a shut-in otaku who dies in an accident. He meets Aqua, the goddess of water in his afterlife, and gets a chance to restart his life in a fantasy world.
Kazuma gets a choice to bring a single thing to the fantasy world, and he decides to bring the goddess herself. Now Kazuma and Aqua are joined together to have an adventure in the new world. They are eventually joined by a sorcerer Megumi, and a Knight named Darkness.
But the fun begins when you realize how useless every character is. The rest of the story is about our team of four losers struggling to survive in this fantasy world and often getting entangled in one problem after another.
Recently Kadokawa got a lot of attention when they announced that they will produce 40 anime this year. As a result, it was pretty obvious that fans will get sequels of their favorite anime. This has already happened for other Kadokawa properties like Overlord, Saga of Tanya the Evil, and Isekai Quartet.
And finally, we got an announcement for Konosuba also. The original series was quite good and funny, so fans are eagerly waiting for new anime.
