The formal confirmation of a new Konosuba anime project, which most likely means Konosuba season 3, but there is no release date for the third season of this anime series.
The question now is when Konosuba Season 3 will be released. And how many light novel volumes will be adapted for the upcoming season?
We’ll address when the Konosuba Anime Season 3 will air, as well as how many episodes it will have, in this post, but before, some important information:
Konosuba is a terrific fantasy-themed comedic isekai anime series. Kazuma Sat is the main character in this anime series.
Kazuma Sat, a teen NEET who ends up with the worst party members, is the protagonist of the novel. Aqua, the archpriest and goddess, Megumin, the archwizard, and Darkness, the crusader They must work together to destroy the Devil King.
There have been two seasons of the Konosuba anime so far. The first season aired in 2016 and included ten episodes. Konosuba’s second season, which aired in 2017, also included ten episodes. In addition, there are two OVAs and a film.
KonoSuba: Legend of Crimson is the title of the film, which was released in 2019. The movie is a direct sequel to the second season. Because it’s unclear whether Season 3 will begin with it, it’s a good idea to watch it first.
The release date for Konosuba s3 has yet to be announced, and fans of the anime series are eager to learn when the next season of Konosuba will be released.
Let’s take a look at which light novel volumes will be adapted for the new season, as well as the most likely Konosuba Season 3 release date.
Light Novel & Manga Konosuba Season 3
The Konosuba anime series is based on the popular light book Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! in Japan.
Natsume Akatsuki wrote the Konosuba light novel series, which Kurone Mishima illustrated.
How many Konosuba volumes are there?
The Konosuba light novel series has had 17 volumes published in Japan as of February 2022.
In addition, there are four light novel spin-offs and a manga adaptation.
Is The Konosuba Light Novel Still Going?
No, the Konosuba light novel ended with volume 17, therefore the series is over. On May 1, 2020, Natsume Akatsuki (Kemono Michi) released the final volume in Japan.
The author claims that he still intends to write for Konosuba in the future. It’ll most likely be a collection of short stories, but don’t hold your breath for a Konosuba Light Novel Volume 18 release date.
Which Volumes Will Season 3 Cover?
Season 3 of Konosuba will begin with light novel volume 6 and end with book 7. Volumes 1 to 2 were adapted for the Konosuba anime’s first season. Volumes 3–4 were adapted for the Konosuba anime’s second season, and volume 5 was adapted for the movie.
So, if you’re looking to pick up where the anime left off and continue the Konosuba story, check out Konosuba Light Novel Volume 6 in English.
Season 3 of Konosuba is expected to include between 10 and 13 episodes. I wouldn’t be surprised if they adapted three volumes instead of two this time. It will take ten years to complete the anime if they continue to use only two novels per season.
There will also be enough material left over after the third season to make a fourth season of Konosuba.
I strongly advise you to read the Konosuba Light Novels. It’s a terrific way to show your support for the author, and the books look nice on a bookcase.
Release Date for Konosuba Season 3
The release date for Konosuba Season 3 is unknown, and the only thing that has been confirmed is a new anime project. It’s very certainly Konosuba season 3, with a January 2023 release date.
On average, it takes 12 to 18 months for a new season to be released after it has been confirmed. Takaomi Kanasaki, the director of Konosuba, is currently working on Princess Connect! Season 2 of Re:Dive is now airing.
That is why, even if Konosuba season 3 is announced, it will not be released in 2022. Because the first two seasons were released in January, Konosuba season 3 will most certainly be released in January 2023. I’m not sure why Kadokawa announced it so quickly.
If you’re a fan of the Konosuba series, you should also look at Konosuba Merchandise. This franchise has some fantastic merchandise.
I’ll update this post as soon as the official Konosuba Twitter account posts any information about the Konosuba Season 3 release date.
