Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (Konosuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!), also known by its short name Konosuba, adapts Natsume Akatsuki's comedy fantasy light novel, which he originally penned on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website from December 2012 to October 2013. Kadokawa began publishing the series under its Sneaker Bunko label that month, featuring illustrations by Kurone Mishima (Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records). The light novel ended with the 17th volume in May 2020. Konosuba has a cumulative 10 million copies of its volumes in circulation.

Masahito Watari began drawing a manga adaptation in Monthly Dragon Age in September 2014. Kadokawa published the 15th volume on May 9.

Studio Deen produced two television anime seasons in Winter 2016 and 2017, each running for ten episodes. The Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!: Kurenai Densetsu (Konosuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! - Legend of Crimson) anime film by J.C.Staff opened in Japan in August 2019, adapting the fifth volume.

Crunchyroll simulcast the anime series with subtitles and debuted an English dub for both seasons in January and February 2019, respectively. Discotek Media licensed both seasons and original video episodes and released them on home video in May 2020 and February 2021.

Yen Press licensed the light novel and spin-off in English and published the 16th volume on April 19 and second spin-off volume in July 2020. The company is also publishing the manga adaptations of both novel series.

Sweet! I hope they are able to keep adapting this series to it's end. It sounds like a long way off but fans can hope they keep making the anime.

Everything after Megumin's sister

Well I guess that's something one wouldn't notice unless they've read the light novel which is like most of us. As for someone who has both read and watched the series (still reading) I guess you have two totally different worlds to enjoy if you don't compare them to each other that is.

I hope it's more like the first 2 seasons (amazing adaptation) and less like the movie (garbage with 30 minutes of filler).

People shitting on the studio already.
Y'all forget Studio Deen made S1 and S2. But you're probably too busy shitting on Deen too, without remembering the crapton of good anime they made, including Konosuba.
Chill, bruh.
You can always tell who are the bagonwagoners or newbies when it comes to seeing shit like that lol, I just ignore them now

I had promised myself that I won't watch 2nd season till I hear the news about 3rd....seems like it worked out well lol

May 29, 5:31 AM by Freako04

Urgh, I remember fans used to be pretty insufferable about this one.

Remember the one meme where someone compared Konosuba to WW2 and said there was never gonna be a third season? Well now we have both WW3 and Konosuba Season 3, he was right, it was connected.

2 seasons plus a movie were only able to cover 5 volumes of this........we still have a lot of konosuba to look forward to (hellllll yeaaaaahhhh!!!)

For as popular as this is, I'm surprised season 3 hasn't come sooner. What surprises me even more is that it's getting a new studio. I feel like Deen should keep this, thanks to their often wonky looking animation. It helped add to the comedy. Hopefully Drive can emulate that.
