KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! takes the isekai and fantasy genre to a wonderful turn, resulting in a series that’s filled with laughs and absolute chaos. It’s definitely a must-watch for people who love watching certain anime genres mixed with a lot of comedy in them.

Konosuba is originally a light novel series created by Natsume Akatsuki in 2013. It follows the story of Kazuma Satō, a high school student who dies and ends up reincarnated in a fantasy world mixed with MMORPG elements. Alongside him is a goddess named Aqua, who’s practically useless and loves using her powers for simple party tricks. Eventually, their party is joined by Megumin, a wizard, and Darkness, a crusader.

Megumin is one of the adorable fan favorites. This explosion magic-obsessed girl loves explosions so much that she’s dedicated her arsenal to a single powerful and destructive spell—but she can only use it once a day. Not to mention, it practically drains all her energy afterward. That’s just one of the seemingly outrageous things about Kazuma’s party as a whole which makes them such an entertaining ensemble.

Megumi in Japanese means “blessing”, so there may be a pun hidden somewhere there based on the full title of the series. Megumin can also be a cute way of saying Megumi. Since she’s so cute and all, a common question among fans may be about her age.

We’ve seen throughout the series that Megumin gets quite insecure about her body and age, reacting violently when she’s treated like a little girl. But the thing is, Megumin actually really is a little girl.

According to the third volume of the light novel, Megumin is 13 years old. As of Volume 14, she’s turned a year older.

While there are no official announcements yet for the third season of Konosuba, let’s just hope there will be soon so that we can see more of the adorable wizard and her explosion magic.
