KONOSUBA is an anime that became an instant hit out of seemingly nowhere -- and now it is coming back to America.
Many claim it to be one of the best animes of Winter 2016 and today, for fans of the first season of the series, Crunchyroll announced that it will be simulcasting Season 2 of KONOSUBA- God’s blessing on this wonderful world! Starting, January 11th.
Crunchyroll has been stepping up its game when it comes to providing simulcasting of Japanese shows worldwide, as quickly as up to 30 minutes after it premieres in Japan. (This is a great service that until now not all anime fans have had access to.)
Konosuba revolves around Kazuma Satou, a teenage boy who is sent to a fantasy world following his accidental death. He meets a goddess named Aqua who gives him an option to go on to heaven or reincarnate in a real fantasy world. Kazuma chooses to follow his gamer dreams and start life in this new fantasy world, but he is faced by challenges right away. Aqua tells him the only way to return home is to defeat the villain known as the Devil King. It is up to Kazuma to overcome his selfishness and takedown the evil monster.
According to Crunchyroll:
“KONOSUBA -God's blessing on this wonderful world! 2 begins streaming tomorrow 1/11 (exact launch time to be announced later) and will be available every Wednesday at 10:35am to members worldwide excluding: Asia, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand; and German, French, Italian and Dutch Speaking Europe.”
In addition to the news about the season two release, the winter 2017 series has its home video release plans already set. The series has plans for a five volume release that is similar to the release of the first . The series is getting a five volume release for its ten-episode run. The Blu-ray special limited edition blu ray is to be priced at 7,600 yen each while the DVDs are set to be 6,600 yen. Both formats are listed as limited edition releases with the pack-in extras.
