Konosuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! is planning a comeback with some major new projects, and the new Megumin focused spin-off has released the first trailer showing off what to expect from the new series, Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! The franchise is getting ready to return for not only its highly requested third season of the main anime series, but will also be branching off on a new spin-off all about Megumin's life before she had joined up with Kazuma Sato's party as seen in the first season of the anime series.
Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! is currently scheduled to release some time in 2023, and following the first teaser trailer released for the new anime earlier this year, we have now gotten the first full trailer showing off the spin-off in motion. Revealing the scene in which a young Megumin is likely inspired to follow her explosive new magic path when she seems another magic user unleashed one of their own, it's a major tease for more to come. Check out the first trailer for Konosuba's new Megumin spin-off anime below:
Based on Natsume Akatsuki and Masahito Watari's original light novel series, Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World's anime does not currently have a set release date outside of being scheduled for next year. Yujiro Abe will be serving as director for Studio Drive with main Konosuba franchise director Takaomi Kanasaki supervising. Makoto Uezu returns from the main series as series composer, Koichi Kikuta returns as character designer, and Rie Takahashi and Aki Toyosaki have been confirmed to return as the voices of both Megumin and Yunyun respectively. The original three volume spin-off series has been licensed for an English language release by Yen Press (if you wanted to check it out), and they describe Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World as such:
"One year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire hit the scene, Megumin, the "Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan," is hard at work. Ever since a life-changing encounter in her youth, the young wizard has dedicated her every waking moment to the pursuit of the ultimate offensive magic, Explosion! (Well...every moment not spent hustling food from her self-proclaimed rival.) And while the big sister's away, the little one will play. On a routine trip into the woods, Megumin's little sister, Komekko, finds a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing a Dark God's tomb..."
