The most popular anime comedy of the season Konosuba is still under a lot of questions as they have not officially said anything about their next season. This anime series is full of so many fun characters and voice acting is excellent and do not forget about the love tension between Kazuma and Megumin that is the life of the show.
But without the third season we will never know if Kazuma and Megumin will ever get together for good. Aqua and darkness will also be missed if the season 3 is not released.
Konosuba Season 3 Release Date
There are many light novels for Konosuba which can tell you the further story of Konosuba but most of us are going to wait for the sequel because of its amazing animations and voice acting.
According to the Kadokawa producer Junichiro Tamura, there are high chances you will get to see Konosuba season 3 soon, but release date is not finalized yet.
We cannot fully depend on a single rumor so we did some research based on the show’s current popularity, source material, sales and profit and found out the answer to the biggest mystery right now- ‘Will there be Konosuba Season 3?’
Factor 1: Popularity
Konosuba’s popularity was at peak in 2020’s and it is still going super strong. It is evident by the number of searches for both its series and the movie that people are dying to watch the next season. Usually searches for the sequel are less than the first season but it is exact opposite in this case.
Their social media is also overflowing with new followers. Their latest light volume 17 is still extremely popular and getting multiple downloads daily.
After their movie, Konosuba’s merchandise has also seen a great hike in the sales. They keep adding new products in their merchandise every month which also acts as a positive reason for their popularity.
Factor 2: Source Material
Most anime series are just variations of different source materials such as manga, mobile games, visual novels, or light novels. Konosuba is adapted from light novels. There are currently 17 volumes of Konosuba last one being published in May 2020.
They also keep adding spin offs such as Megumin and Yunyun’s time as students two years before the main series to give it a new life and to maintain the interest of their viewers.
If we will go by the current status of light novels, we should say that there is 1% chance that there will be no sequel as the light novels have already ended. But as only volume 1 and 2 was used for the first season, 3rd, and 4th in the second season and 5th volume was totally adapted in the movie, there are still strong chances of Season 3 coming out soon.
Factor 3: Sales and Profit
Each and everything related to Konosuba makes a ton of money, be it their merchandise, movie, game, and even light novels. Although we have noticed a little drop in Blu-ray sales, but it really does not matter in 2020.
Konosuba compared to other one core anime series is very inexpensive and earns a lot of profit, there is no reason money-wise season 3 would not be aired.
After going through all the minor details, the only conclusion we get can to is that there are 99% chances that Konosuba season 3 will be out soon. We cannot exactly say about the month of year it is going to be released, maybe in the late 2021. It will break a lot of hearts if the release date will be shifted to 2022.
Only thing we can do right now is wait and support the series to the fullest!
