An Explosion on This Wonderful World! Light Novel and Anime

The upcoming show is a spinoff of the Konosuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! isekai anime series that is based on the light novel series of the same name.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Konosuba began as a light novel series by Natsume Akatsuki. It started with Volume 1 which was published back in October 2013.

The main series ended on the 17th volume on May 1, 2020.

Thanks to its popularity, the light novel was adapted into an anime series by Studio DEEN, with its two seasons airing in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

In 2019, an anime film by J.C.Staff was released that adapted the fifth light novel volume.

The main Konosuba series follows the misadventures of Kazuma Satou, a teenage shut-in who was transported into a fantasy world following his untimely death.

Unlike more serious isekai shows, Konosuba is a comedic take on the genre as Kazuma has a party consisting of powerful adventurers that don’t have the sharpest of minds.

An Explosion on This Wonderful World! will follow Megumin, one of Kazuma’s party members.

This anime is based on the spinoff light novel series of the same name, and its story is set before the events of the main series.
