Natsume Akatsuki’s KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! is a Japanese light novel series. Following his death, Kazuma Sato is sent to a fantasy world with MMORPG elements, where he forms a dysfunctional adventuring party with a goddess, an archwizard, and a crusader.
Originally serialized as a web novel on Shsetsuka ni Nar between December 2012 and October 2013, KonoSuba was published as a printed light novel series by Kadokawa Shoten under the company’s Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint from October 2013 to May 2020. The light novel series has a unique plot and illustrations by Kurone Mishima.
KonoSuba Season 3 Release Date
KonoSuba Season 3 is currently in production! Kadokawa has announced that the third season will premiere in May 2022.
Although no specific date has been announced, we believe Season 3 will premiere in January 2023.
Along with the announcement of the third season, Kadokawa revealed that a KonoSuba spin-off anime series is in the works.
An anime adaptation of the spin-off novel KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! is in the works.
Although no official date for the spin-off series has been set, it is expected to premiere in late 2023.
Konosuba Season 3 Plot
KonoSuba follows Kazuma Sat, a young boy who dies of a heart attack after rescuing a girl from a speeding truck. Upon his death, however, he is transported to a world similar to that of a role-playing game (RPG), where he quickly forms a dysfunctional party with goddess Aqua, magician Megumin, and knight Darkness.
KonoSuba season three will most likely adapt volumes six and seven of the light novel series, as the first two seasons and film did.
Possible spoilers are ahead, but in these volumes, Darkness leaves to marry a lord, potentially severing the misfit party of adventurers for good.
Kazuma is living comfortably with the reward money as word of his victories over the Devil King spreads. The Crown takes notice, and Princess Iris enlists his assistance in apprehending The Chivalrous Thief Chris, who has stolen the empire’s wealth.
