Konosuba season 3 is expected to release in between 2021-2022!
Before dwelling into further details, let’s see why Konosuba is unique and gained popularity within a few months after the release.
It has successfully aired a second season, a movie, and few OVAs. Fans are curious to know more about the sparks between Kazuma and Megumin, but they prefer anime over light novels because of its unique animation, music, and voiceovers.
It stole the top position because, at first glance, it would seem like another ordinary isekai anime, and this is where people usually go wrong. Konosuba forces their viewers to shut off their reasoning entirely and enjoy the show.
It’s one of the rare anime which is legitimately funny and makes you laugh. Konosuba is a mixture of all the elements- an imaginary world, cute moe girls, humor, and action.
She adds further that she can grant any power she wishes to have in the parallel world. Despite hoping for a superpower, he chooses Aqua to accompany him in the parallel world. Aqua has to defeat the Devil King to return to the afterlife.
Kazuma finds Aqua dumb and useless hence he starts recruiting members for some adventures. They finally form a party with an explosion-obsessed magician named Megumin and a masochistic crusader named Darkness.
Due to the party’s dysfunctional abilities, Kazuma feels no more motivated to defeat the devil king and plans to live a comfortable and normal life in the town.
But this all remains just a dream because life keeps throwing obstacles at him in the form of monsters, giant toads, Devil King’s general, etc.
The characters are funny in their circumstances. All the characters have their unique personalities that overall make the anime enjoyable. The show is like icing on the cake. It’s entertaining, and it’s a shame that each season has only ten episodes.

Will there be Konosuba Season 3?
1. Reference for Adaptation
Unlike other anime, mostly adapted from manga or visual novels, Konosuba was an adaption from light novel series.
Many anime don’t release next seasons or abruptly end because writers/ manga artists fail to update on time, and viewers lose interest eventually.
But that’s not the case for Konosuba because it had successfully published 17 light novel volumes. Simultaneously, Konosuba’s first season, which aired in 2016, covered 1-2 volumes. The second season covered 3-4, and the movie covered the whole novel 5.
The writer had also assured the fans that he’d keep adding more importance in the future, which means they have enough material to work on Konosuba Season 3 Ding-Ding good news!
2. Voice Actors & Producer confirmed for Konosuba Season 3
Voice Actors June Fukushima and Riya Takahashi gave a strong response to the release of Konosuba season 3 over a radio show in Japan.
On the other hand, a Kadokawa producer named Junichiro Tamura claimed that Konosuba Season 3 has a good chance only if the crimson legend movies do well in theatre.
The producers aren’t willing to share any further information because they are already busy with other projects.
Another reason for the delayed official announcement for the release of Konosuba Season 3 would be the Covid-19 pandemic.
3. Production Time
When one goes through their release dates and timeline, one can indeed find that soon after the light novel released in 2012.
It gained immense popularity, which led to manga’s creation in 2014 and anime in 2016.
There’s been only a 2-year gap, which means that Konosuba is extremely popular.
Hence there are always new releases in Japan, which also increases the chance of Konosuba Season 3.
The J.C staff has produced more than 300 anime, out of which 100 are really popular, and they keep producing quality anime, making them so popular and financially stable.
But this also means that they have many ongoing projects and are not getting much time to focus on Konosuba, so maybe we can expect it by 2022.
4. Sales Figure:
Konosuba light novel sold 1.5 million copies, while season 1 anime sold around 12000 blu-ray DVDs.
They have more than 1000 merchandise, which gets sold daily.
Alone, Megumin has more than 90 figures, which are one of the best-selling in Japan.
In the anime industry, it’s expected that there might be a sales drop in the second or third seasons.
But in the case of Konosuba, there was around a 10% drop, which means the anime has potential and can be adapted further.
There are also rumors going on about Konosuba maybe performed live by the cosplayers.
The recent Konosuba: legend of the crimson movie made a profit of 2 million dollars.
We can conclude from all this information that Konosuba Season 3 will be released in the future as it seems to have eternal profit for the producers.
The IOS Android and PS report launched a mobile and PS4 game, making a profit of 3 million dollars.
5. Popularity and Fan base
Almost everyone who watched the series became a fan. There’s no end to their seamlessly overgoing popularity.
Whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, fans worldwide keep posting artworks or memes on them!
Fans love Megumin the most, and some of her memes went viral on the internet too.
They appear in recent searches, which means people worldwide have finished watching all the seasons and are searching for more.
Their Twitter account is really active, which means that there is hope for another season, but it’s getting late as the production committee is quite busy with other anime projects for the summer!

The plot for Konosuba Season 3 is expected to continue their sequel from the Crimson Legend Movie.
We can also expect that the third season will cover volumes 6-7, but this could be changed if the producers want to produce more seasons, i.e., season 4.
We also expect a better animation in Konosuba Season 3 since there’s a change in production houses. Hence I predict that the official announcement of Konosuba season 3 will be by the fall of 2021.
Now cheer up! Your favorite series is going to continue. You need to have patience and keep yourself updated.
