Konosuba Debuts First Trailer for New Megumin Spin-Off: Watch

Konosuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World is making a huge comeback as a franchise, and part of this comeback is a brand new spin-off anime series following Megumin. Now fans have gotten the first look at the new series in production with its very first teaser trailer! The franchise is not only gearing up for the highly requested third season of the anime series, but this new spin-off series will be taking a step back and following Megumin's life before she ended up traveling with Kazuya and his group as seen during the events of the main series.

It's going to be a far way off before the spin-off series actually hits, unfortunately, as demonstrated by the first teaser trailer for Konosuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World. This teaser trailer does not have much in terms of completed footage, but there's a neat behind the scenes look at not only the new character designs for Megumin and Yunyun, but much of the scenery, and even a behind the scenes look at one of Megumin's explosions coming together. You can check it out for yourself below straight from Kadokawa: 

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 or window as of this writing. The initial members of the staff have been revealed, however, with Yujiro Abe serving as director for Studio Drive with main franchise director Takaomi Kanasaki supervising. Makoto Uezu returns 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, 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..."
