Megumin Spin-Off Anime ‘KONOSUBA – An Explosion on This Wonderful World!’ Coming In April

‘KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World’ has been renewed for a third season by the Japanese animation studio Drive, but as fans wait for it a prequel spin-off featuring the explosive wizard Megumin has a targeted release.

The one and only Megumin will have her own anime titled ‘Konosuba – An Explosion on This Wonderful World’ which will serve as a backstory for the scarlet-clad magician with Crunchyroll announcing they are bringing it to North America on their streaming service.

“Brace yourselves for an earth-shattering explosion, because the Megumin-focused spinoff of the KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world! anime is coming to Crunchyroll,” they said on their website. “As revealed during today’s La Mole Industry Panel, the KONOSUBA – An Explosion on This Wonderful World! anime will stream as part of Crunchyroll’s Spring 2023 lineup this April.”

Like the original show, it seems that the show will feature much of the same crass humor that is the signature comedy of franchise.

Crunchyroll added, “Based on the light novels by Natsume Akatsuki and Masahito Watari, KONOSUBA: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! is being directed by Yujiro Abe (Kaguya-sama: Love is War episode director) at studio Drive (VLAD LOVE) under the supervision of main series director Takaomi Kanasaki, with the return of Makoto Uezu as series composer and Koichi Kikuta as character designer as well.”

Studio Drive also released a teaser image to promote the anime:

Anime Planet describes the synopsis as follows,

“One year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire hit the scene, Megumin, the “Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan,” is hard at work. Ever since a life-changing encounter in her youth, the young wizard has dedicated her every waking moment to the pursuit of the ultimate offensive magic, Explosion! (Well…every moment not spent hustling food from her self-proclaimed rival.) And while the big sister’s away, the little one will play. On a routine trip into the woods, Megumin’s little sister, Komekko, finds a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing a Dark God’s tomb…”

The Japanese animation Studio Deen handled the first two seasons of ‘KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World’ and J.C.
