Greetings, beloved readers! It is great to see you back again on our website. Have you heard the latest news about the release of Konosuba Season 3? Yes, that’s right. The favourite fantasy-comedy anime show, mostly known as “Isekai” in Japanese animation history, Konosuba has finally been announced a Season 3! It is very exciting news for anime fans, especially for lovers of fantasy comedy anime shows. Konosuba is a Japanese light novel anime series, and it is a great watch for anyone who is looking for a fantasy comedy, light-hearted anime series to watch.
Konosuba Season 3 News: The Isekai Parody Series Is All Set For A Season 3!
The manga of Konosuba was published in late 2012, from December 20, 2012 to October 21, 2013. And since then, Konosuba has been a popular read among manga readers. For its great success among the younger generation, Konosuba was made into a Japanese animation (anime) series. Konosuba Season 1 was first premiered on 14th January 2016, and the season continued airing on television until 24th June 2016. The first anime season of the series itself received much love from the audience, and with that being the biggest green light, the anime was renewed for a Season 2 as well. With almost a year of wait for season 2, Konosuba Season 2 was aired for the first time on 12th of January 2017. The season continued until 16th March, 2017, and was very well received among its viewers as well.
With two successful seasons on the line and a overwhelmingly positive response from the viewers, Konosuba was a fairly successful fantasy comedy anime show. Which is why, fans were expecting a season 3 for the show from the very end of Konosuba Season 2. But due to some unfortunate turns of events, the wait for a season 3 of Konosuba became increasingly more long, and currently it has been a whopping five years since the release of Konosuba Season 2. The wait has been so painstakingly long that fans almost gave up on hoping for a season 3.
But fortunately for the fans who have waited this long for the release of Konosuba Season 3, we have the best news ever. The creators and producers of the show Konosuba have officially confirmed that there will be a season 3 of Konosuba, and its production is soon to begin!
Receiving this big of a news, the Konosuba fandom seems to be in disarray and riddled with hundreds of questions about the show’s future. When is Konosuba Season 3 coming out? How many episodes will there be? We hear you. So today, keeping the questions of fans and our dear readers in mind, we bring to you a detailed discussion of Konosuba Season 3: everything we know. So relax, grab a coffee and let’s see what we have to tell you about Konosuba Season 3 and its future!
Konosuba Season 3 Announcement: Will There Be A Konosuba Season 3?
Fans of Konosuba: God’s Blessing On This Wonderful World have waited for long enough. It has been almost five years since the last season of Konosuba came out, and fans almost gave up hoping for a new season at this point. Naturally so! But it seems that our wait has not been fruitless after all – because Konosuba is all set for a brand new Season 3!
Coming as a great news for Konosuba fans, the Isekai anime series is set to come back for a season 3 in late 2022 or early 2023. The official Twitter account of Konosuba has confirmed that Season 2 is in fact not the end for Konosuba, and Konosuba is finally getting the much anticipated Season 3.
As of now, the official handle of the show Konosuba has not yet revealed any details about the official release date or new cast and crew members. From this lack of new information, it can be speculated that the Konosuba Season 3 has not yet begun its production. Which means that we might have to wait until late 2022 or early 2023 for Konosuba Season 3 to finally be on air.
So more days to wait, supposedly. But at least we know how long to wait for this time!
All the previous two seasons of Konosuba are directed by Takaomi Kanasaki. Takaomi Kanasaki is a very talented and professional producer and director who is often busy with multiple projects. And like that, Director Kanasaki is currently busy with working on another comedy Isekai series similar to Konosuba, whose name is Princess Connect! Re: Dive Season 2. Takaomi Kanasaki will be busy directing the anime series probably for the rest of 2022, which may be the biggest reason why we still have to wait for quite a period of time for Konosuba Season 3 to come back.
We are hopeful that we will get some official news about Konosuba Season 3 official release date by the end of this year, since it will be six months after the official renewal announcement of Konosuba Season 3. We are hoping that the production crew will reach a solid schedule by that time and provide us more details about when in actuality we will get to experience the Konosuba Season 3.
It is very frustrating to wait for a show to release its next season, and considering that fans had to wait for five whole years for Konosuba Season 3 news only adds to the frustration. But it is also a fact that the production of a show depends highly on the producers’ schedules and circumstances, and the corona outbreak has not been helpful at all. Many shows and anime series have been delayed in production due to the lockdown situation. But now that the situation is somewhat in control, the production team are grouping back again to continue the production. This is exactly the same thing that happened with Konosuba, and we are glad that the producers of the show are finally working on Konosuba Season 3.
Fans have welcomed the news of Konosuba Season 3 coming back with overjoyed excitement and enthusiasm. The official announcement post on twitter at the moment of writing of this article has gathered a whopping 18.7k likes, 1142 Quote Retweets along with 3006 retweets. Needless to say, fans are overjoyed to see their favourite Isekai anime show Konosuba making a comeback.
Konosuba Season 3 Release Date: When Will Konosuba Season 3 Be Released?
Fans of the Konosuba series are super impatient to hear about the official Konosuba Season 3 release date. After all, they have waited for a whole five years for this! Ever since the official announcement was made about Konosuba getting a Season 3, fans have lost their minds trying to find more and more about what is to happen in the future for Konosuba Season 3.
After Konosuba Season 2 wrapped up with ten episodes back in 2017, fans were already impatient to see more about where the storyline goes. Konosuba is an excellent Isekai show, and even though the Isekai genre of Anime is a very vast one, Konosuba deserves an honourable mention for its engaging storyline and heartfelt plot.
The original manga version of Konosuba, written by Natsume Akatsuki has concluded the storyline in 2020. Which means that the ultimate climax of the Konosuba series is already brought into existence through its manga version. Now one just has to wait until the producers of the anime series start their work, right?
But like we have said before, the production team of Konosuba have faced many setbacks in their process of bringing Konosuba series to animation. The official announcement of Konosuba Season 3 has only been made this year on May 28th, 2022 via the official Twitter account of the anime. But even though the series has finally received confirmation, unfortunately, there has been no news about the official release date for Season 3 of Konosuba yet.
In the official announcement Twitter post, there has not been any mention of the production of Konosuba Season 3, which is why we speculate that it is difficult for the producers to provide a set release date for the show Konosuba Season 3.
It is expected that by the end of 2022, the production crew of Konosuba will be far enough into the production of the Isekai anime show. We are hopeful that by that time we will get an official idea of when Konosuba Season 3 is going to be released along with many other news.
Fret not, because as soon as we get any further news about Konosuba Season 3, we will inform you about it on our website. You can count on us.
Konosuba Season 3 Episodes
Ever since the news of Konosuba Season 3 being announced started circulating , the overjoyed fans of the anime series have had a lot of questions in their minds about the show. Among these popularly asked questions of the show, fans of Konosuba are very eager to know how many episodes will Konosuba Season 3 have.
Konosuba is very different from any other popular anime series. Fans of anime know that most anime series are very lengthy in nature, with some even being hundreds of episodes long. However, Konosuba is not one of them.
Konosuba is a short, sweet anime series and a very unique addition to the Japanese isekai genre. As of now, Konosuba Season 1 and Konosuba Season 2 has featured twenty episodes in total, meaning each season has had ten episodes each.
However, since the production of Konosuba Season 3 is still at its dawn, the producers are yet to say anything about the show’s length. Which means that, there are no official statements about the number of episodes Konosuba Season 3 will have. We speculate that by the end of this year, when the producers of the anime show will have a proper production schedule and a stable idea about the show’s release, we will get some more information about how many episodes will Konosuba Season 3 really have through their official announcement.
If the airing schedule of Konosuba is to follow the previous seasons as well, then we are speculating that Konosuba Season 3 will also have ten to thirteen episodes, that is, if Konosuba Season 3 does not include any filler episodes.
Konosuba is an anime which is derived from the original Konosuba manga series which were released back in 2012 for the first time. The anime adaptation of the series was first introduced on television in 2016. Season 1 and Season 2 of the Konosuba anime was based upon the volume one to volume five of the Konosuba Manga series. With Konosuba Manga being concluded with a total of seven volumes, it is expected that Konosuba Season 3 will be based upon the volumes six and seven of the original manga.
This means that the new Konosuba Season 3 will also be somewhat the same in length with the other Konosuba Seasons. But nothing can be said for sure as of now, since the producers and creators of Konosuba have not said any specific details about Konosuba Season 3 episodes.
But worry not, because as soon as we get any news regarding the number of episodes of Konosuba Season 3, we will be quick to inform you through our website. So make sure you check in regularly to not miss out on any new details about Konosuba Season 3 episodes, and more.
Konosuba Season 3 Production Crew

As for the animating studio, Takaomi Kanasaki will be directing the show in the new Studio Drive (which is different from the direction studio of Konosuba Season 1 and Season 2). Along with Takaomi Kanasaki, Yujiro Abe will also be directing the series. Along with that, Konosuba Season 3 production crew will have Makoto Uezu returning for series composition, and Koichi Kikuta returning as character designer.
It has also been confirmed that the production crew of Konosuba will also be handling the upcoming spin-off prequel of the Megumin series, titled Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World!

The producers of the show have teased the upcoming season 3 for Konosuba with some sensational details about the new season, stating –
“After a traffic accident, Kazuma Sato’s disappointingly brief life was supposed to be over, but he wakes up to see a beautiful girl before him. She claims to be a goddess, Aqua, and asks if he would like to go to another world and bring only one thing with him. Kazuma decides to bring the goddess herself, and they are transported to a fantasy world filled with adventure, ruled by a demon king. Now Kazuma only wants to live in peace, but Aqua wants to solve many of this world’s problems, and the demon king will only turn a blind eye for so long…”.
Needless to say, Konosuba Season 3 is all set to win the hearts of its viewers once again, and our wait has been worthwhile.
Best Characters Of Konosuba: Strongest Konosuba Characters
Fans of Konosuba have a lot to say about the characters of the show. While Isekai is a genre which features an ordinary person finding themselves in an alternative fantasy world, it doesn’t mean that Isekai characters are as weak as they are thought to be.
Although Konosuba is an excellent addition to the isekai genre of Japanese anime series, this show is very different and unique from others. Konosuba is usually considered as a lovable parody of Isekai rather than a serious one, which is why fans seem to love the series more with its differences.
So in this segment of our article, we will talk about some of the best and strongest Konosuba characters (ranked weakest to strongest) who make Konosuba complete and enjoyable.
Despite being known for being the comic relief of Konosuba, Eris is a goddess with much more power than is acknowledged in the show. Being one of Aqua’s peers, Eris arrived at the mortal plane as “Chris”. Eris is the one who taught Kazuma about the “steal” skill. Although not the most capable character of the show, Eris deserves to be mentioned in this list.
- Kazuma Sato
Although Kazuma is the main protagonist of the Konosuba series, he is a surprisingly weak warrior. Although he has some combat skills, his Luck Stat is maxed out and he often ends up having things his way in one way or another. But due to him being too absorbed by worldly pleasures, Kazuma does not put an effort to become a better fighter.
Known for her masochistic nature, Darkness has the right armour, swords, and knightly values for the job. Since Darkness has impressive stamina and endurance, she is better suited for defence or decoy work. Darkness is incredibly tough with or without armour and due to her being a little masochistic personality wise, she is often the shield of the group.
Aqua is a very special character of Konosuba. Aqua was the one to introduce Kazuma to the new world and became his first adventure party member. Being a goddess herself, even though Aqua is known for her ill tempered personality and short sightedness, her power can be deadly when used correctly. Her unique abilities include creating water out of nothing, purifying it, making barriers with it and even performing amazing aquatic tricks with it. Her presence itself is enough for any unholy or undead creature to steer clear of that region, and she also possesses a great amount of magical power.
Hailing from the Crimson Demon Clan, Megumin graduated from the magic school early for her exceptional skills in magic. Also an altruistic person, Megumin sends money back to her poverty-ridden parents. Although Megumin’s skill set is limited, she is capable of setting off powerful explosions and has scored multiple major victories with that power.
Vanir’s identity or being is just the mask itself on any body, and he can use anyone’s body as his own as long as he places the mask on the body. With such scary power, Vanir is a notorious mention on this list. Vanir is able to fire a powerful bean that only a few characters of the show can survive. He is also capable of creating dirt golem bodies to distract his opponents. With excellent combat skills and durability, Vanir is definitely one of the strongest characters of Konosuba.
Coming down the strongest and most capable character of Konosuba, we have the lovely lady Wiz. The owner of the nice little magic shop where adventurers buy her wares for free, she is a sweet lady that gets along with everyone she meets. However, her powers are off the charts. She can create magic swamps to drag down hordes of enemies at once, and use a life drain spell that she also taught to Kazuma. With impressive ice magic skills and the ability to sense nearby traps or enemies, Wiz is definitely the most efficient and powerful character of Konosuba with no doubt.
