Konosuba: God’s blessing to this wonderful world will be making its grand return to the world of anime later this spring with a new spin-off series, and an awesome cosplay is ready to take it all over with Megumin! The anime that took over Natsume Akatsuki’s now complete light novel series was a huge hit with fans for the first two seasons, and followed this up with a debut feature film. But that was far from the end as now the anime is gearing up to take over the world once again with some brand new anime releases very soon.
The first of these new anime is coming our way in April as part of the Spring 2023 anime schedule. Konosuba: an explosion in this wonderful world! takes place before the Megumi joins Kazuma’s party in the main series and follows her around school. This anime will be the first new one Konosuba release in quite some time, and artist @alice_dias_c on Instagram has brought the explosive wizard to life to better prepare fans for the new spin-off anime series!

How to watch Konosuba’s Megumin spin-off
Konosuba: an explosion in this wonderful world! has not set any international release plans at the time of writing when it releases in Japan in April, but what has been confirmed is that Yujiro Abe will serve as director for Studio Drive with main Konosuba franchise director Takaomi Kanasaki supervising. If you’re curious about the original light novels, the original three-part spin-off series has been licensed for an English-language release by Yen Press. They tease the spin-off as such:
“A year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire arrives on the scene, Megumin, the ‘Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan’, is hard at work. Since a life-changing encounter in her childhood, the young wizard has devoted her every waking moment to chasing the ultimate offensive magic, Explosion!(Well…any moment she doesn’t spend getting food from her self-proclaimed rival.) And while the big sister is gone, the little one plays in the woods finds Megumin’s little sister, Komekko, a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing the tomb of a Dark God…”
