The Storyline Of Konosuba Season 3
Season 3 for the hilarious anime series was confirmed recently. However, there is a possibility that the confirmation is not for season 3 but another side project or spin-off of the series, for example, Megumin’s point of view. Whatever it may be, one thing is for sure, a new release for Konosuba is in the works. Instead of focusing on fan theories, we can just pray it’s season 3.
Season 3 Cast
The cast for season 3 will stay the same as the previous two seasons. In the character of Megumin is Rie Takahashi. Kazuma Sato is voiced by Jun Fukushima. Aqua and Lalatina (Darkness) are played by Sora Amamiya and Ai Kayano, respectively.

Konosuba Anime Series: Other News
As mentioned earlier, the show is based on the light novel series of the same name. With fans speculating whether the latest release will be season 3 of the series or not, the release of season 4 is still in question. But if we analyze the manga, the writer has released 17 volumes of the series. The writer has finished the story, but the second season did not cover enough of the story for season 3 to be the last and final season. Hence, there are a lot of chances that there will be a season 4 for the anime as well.
Seeing as how the novel upon which the series is based is one of the top light novels of all times, the series was bound to be at least half as famous as the book. The sales of the anime series are better than average and the profits are enough that the producers think for more works related to the Konosuba series. So, in case you were wondering if the Konosuba world might come to an end soon, think again.
On another note, seeing as how season three has been confirmed at the beginning of the year, it is more than likely that the release will be at least by the middle of the year. Our bet is the end of the year, but the sooner the better.
Where Can I Watch The Series?
Like most of the other anime series, Konosuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World is available on Crunchyroll. The two seasons of the anime are also available on Netflix. You can view the other related videos, such as trailers and teaser,s on youtube.
The anime series has viewers divided on its review. The series is an isekai, comedy, fantasy, adventure, harem anime with an RPG world and a hikikomori protagonist. The story centers around the adventure the protagonist and his friends embark upon while trying to kill the ultimate villain, the devil king. As mentioned, the fans for the series think it is hands down one of the best comedy anime ever made. On the other hand, the other placid viewers think of it more as an average anime with few good laughs and an overall casual and cliché storyline.
Few Final Words
The anime has a rating of 7.9 on IMDb. My animalist rates it an 8.1 out of 10. The show has also garnered a total of 96% of ratings by google users. The art of the anime is very bright and colorful. It brings out the depressing mood of the RPG world. The theme and credit songs are very slow and mellow. This brings out the relaxed and chill tone of the anime very well. Taking into account that the show is rated PG -13, it is advised that young viewers proceed with caution. The show is very catchy and hooks viewers early on. Since it is not very long, with each episode only 23 minutes long, it does not get very boring or draggy. Overall, the anime series is a great watch in case you are looking for something relaxing and funny.
