After almost a year of silence, the official KonoSuba website and Twitter page have begun teasing fans again for the first time since they confirmed the “new anime project” based on the Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! (KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!) light novel series by author Natsume Akatsuki.
Starting on June 19, 2018, the official website is now under construction and fans are ecstatic, hoping this might mean that Eris’ blessed pads will soon bestow KonoSuba Season 3 upon the world.
The KonoSuba character Kazuma teases fans by saying, “I wonder if it will be a good journey,” and
best girl Aqua talks about their adventures. Based on the URL structure used by the website, KonoSuba Season 3 will be under “http://konosuba.com/3rd/” if the third season is eventually announced.
In addition, the official Twitter page highlighted the website changes and tweeted, “Come to think of it, the very reason Kazuma came to another world is…” The last time the official Twitter page gave any hints about a new KonoSuba anime was back in July of 2017.
“New anime project has started! I was allowed to announce on the radio thanks to the support of all the fans that a new anime project has started!” said the KonoSuba Twitter page. “Thank you very much indeed! We look forward to seeing you again!”
Back then, voice actors Jun Fukushima (Kazuma) and Rie Takahashi (Megumin) teased fans during a 2017 HiBiKi, but all they were allowed to say was that a “new anime project” was in development. While some fans hope Studio Deen is returning for KonoSuba Season 3, it’s still possible the “new anime project” is a KonoSuba movie or even a third OVA episode.
The other option is that the new project could be based on a Megumin light novel spin-off series called Gifting this World with Wonderful Explosions! (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo!). However, the Twitter page specifically mentions Kazuma, not Megumin, but it’s impossible to say whether that’s a hint about the upcoming project or just misdirection.
