The news regarding the renewal was announced by the creators through a Twitter post that read, “New animation production decision! A blessing to this wonderful world! The production of a new animation has been decided!”
“New animation announcement visual released! Please look forward to the follow-up report.”
Since then, fans are constantly digging online to find some concrete news. Now that more recent updates are released online, the series is going to soon be out.
Konosuba Season 3 Storyline
The story of Konosuba takes you to many different worlds through traveling with the characters. It took direct inspiration from the light novel, Konosuba: God’s Blessing on the Wonderful World written by the famous writer, Natsume Akatsuki.
To date, there are 13 volumes of manga that are currently available in Japan. Now, the first two seasons of the series were mainly taken from the first five volumes of the novel series. So, as for season 3, it is likely to be based on volumes six and seven.
To brief the stories of the previous two seasons, it will be following the life story of KazumaSatō. He accidentally died due to a heart attack when he tried to save a girl from getting hit by a truck.
But the untimely death was quite embarrassing for the young fellow. So, after death, he meets goddess Aqua. He has been offered reincarnation by her but he will be returning to a parallel world and have MMORPG elements.
With this, he can take on adventures and is even capable of battling against monsters. It is just like he will be sent to a video game-like world where he can do an extraordinary thing.
As season 2 ended, season 3 will commence with Kazuma’s victory in his fight against the devil king. After winning a good amount of reward money, he will be leaving a lavish life. His popularity couldn’t be undermined.
He soon attracts the Crown and along with Princess Irish, they will start the mission of trapping the Chivalrous Thief Chris. Chris has taken the empire’s wealth and now it’s time to take revenge.
However, things didn’t go as planned and ultimately, Kazuma will be exiled. So, his mission is to prove his innocence and unfold the truth behind the royal conspiracy.
We will also see Megumin and Kazuma getting fond of each other and finally starting a relationship. Well, there will be a lot of twists and turns but hopefully, this is going to be the main plot.
Konosuba Season 3 Official Release Date
The official release date is still a hidden secret but we have news about the year of release. Plus, the cast is also not revealed. Now, if you are an anime fan, then you will know that it takes months to make an anime.
An anime will take around 12 to 18 months to be fully prepared. Besides, the director of Konosuba, Takaomi Kanasaku is also busy creating ‘Princess Connect! Re: Dive Season 2’. So, extra time will be needed to finish this project.
Thus, Konosuba Season 3 will probably be released by the end of January 2023. The chances of getting a late 2022 release are also there but if everything is considered, 2023 looks like the year for release.
However, there is an official confirmation regarding the release of chibi-style crossover, Isekai Quartet Season 3 where you can see the character Konosuba. Even this is going to come back to the screens by 2023.
Also, a film is in the line to get released in 2022. So, with a huge number of anime under production, we expect Konosuba Season 3 to release in 2023 itself. Once the full cast list and the release date are announced, you will get to know it from us.
