The next Konosuba anime brings Megumin's explosions to the big screen


This girl is on fire

One of the biggest surprises of 2017 and 2016 was Konosuba's two seasons. Other than being among the shows that led to Studio Deen bringing us a series of solid hits, it was fun seeing Kazuma and his party of dimwits' attempts to survive in a fantasy world. I guess there's a plot about defeating a demon lord, but the priority seems to be in the antics.

As we went a full year without hearing any news of a sequel, the anime getting its own movie. Whether it'll be a sequel or self-contained story will depend on future updates. For now, we know that J.C. Staff (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and Slayers' Animation Production) is handling the animation, and the key staff members are returning. In other words, we're getting a nicer version of the title with the main people we know and love.

Considering this is one of my favorites of the year, I can't wait to have a great laugh again. Obviously, it'll be neat to see the best girl in Japanese theaters. I guess I can pray for a future North American screening event. Then again, relying on Aqua will result in a disappointing outcome.
