KonoSuba is a light novel, manga, and anime series. It follows Kazuma Sato, who wakes up in a fantasy world after his death. While it is an isekai, it has comedic elements in Kazuma’s dysfunctional party. They inadvertently find themselves fighting the Devil King’s generals through their daily lives. As for KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World, the spin-off focuses on Megumin’s past and how she learned her Explosion spell.

Aside from a show and a light novel series, KonoSuba is also a video game. This may not be a surprise, considering the amount of MMORPG tropes and references that are in the source material. A sequel to KonoSuba: Labyrinth Of Hope And The Gathering Adventurers is in development. The title will come out on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

KonoSuba season 3 and KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World are in development. There is no news on when they will release. It is also unknown if they will air in the same anime season.
