Let's talk about some of the facts for a season 3:
KonoSuba Season 1 sold over 10.8k sales per BD/DVD volume. That's higher than Re:Zero and some other popular anime (except YOI and Haikyuu)

Volume 10 sold over 80k before dropping out of ranking. General consensus would be that they stop peaking around 100k and gradually slowing down. (Re:Zero vol. 10 dropped out of ranking around 63k, but 2 weeks ago, the ranking was so low that Re:Zero vol. 10 popped up again to 89k.) So we can assume that KonoSuba vol. 10 have slowly but steadily sold around 100-120k per volume as of now.

The above statement seems right because KonoSuba have sold almost 1.2m books for only the year 2016 as of November 20th 2016. Making it the highest LN sold in 2016 (not counting the most hyped movie adaptation, Kimi no Na wa)
Using the above source, we also know that its spin-off sold over 225k in 2016.

KonoSuba as a whole sold almost 2m LN on July 2016, the 200万 means 2 million. So assuming that KonoSuba sold the other 500k on the second half of 2016, they would've sold almost 2.5m as of now.

Most anime never even get a third season because mostly they're used as a LN promoters... so... ;_; unless KonoSuba gets another million boost on LN or the BD/DVD itself is enough to budget it, we won't really see a third season.

Note that an anime series of 12 episodes usually need 250 million yen to budget, so that's around 2 million dollars. This is using the information from Shirobako's animation budget who has 500 million yen budget for 24 episodes..

So that means, KonoSuba should need around 200 million budget, assuming they sold 10k BD sales with 7k yen each volume, that means they should've more than enough to make another season with over 350 million yen (5 volumes)

This season was really damn good.

Animation was good, character design's were good, I felt more life in these characters then I do in many anime. I really hope they can do a season 3. Would also like to see a NA release of the blu-rays.

I don't think anyone would oppose a season 3 of this show. I believe that if the source material permits it, and Deen has the opportunity, they would absolutely make another season of Konosuba. Simply put, it's entertaining in almost every aspect! The characters and scenarios are interesting and funny, and the animation and design fits so well. Not to mention that this show has some of my favorite voice acting from anything i've watched.

It would be sad if we never got to see any more of Konosuba animated like this, but i feel like if it stopped here it went out on a high note. This is definitely a show that i'll come back and watch somewhere down the road. At the very least, we know that there's some sort of game based around the show being developed and i'm excited to see what that's like

It only seems to be growing so hopefully. Collaborations are more than abundant right now as well.

Animation was actually garbage until the last episode (which is where I assume they spent most of their episode because the last episode was gorgeous).

I dunno if I liked it better or worse than s2, but I love how they still came up with new jokes and punchlines. The Aris/Axis sect portion of the anime was amazing.

Please please please. The episode with Darkness' engagement might be the single most dementedly amazing episode of anime comedy I've ever seen.

So I just got done with watching both seasons of Konosuba. I really enjoyed both seasons, a lot of laughs & very enjoyable from beginning to end. All I can say is:

Season 1: Awesome
Season 2: Even better
Season 3: Yes please. I need more of this show.

I love how this show effectively turns the generic "trapped in an RPG" premise on its head.

Season 3 please.

PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF AQUA, LET THERE BE A SEASON 3
*Season 2 Finale ends with Volume 4 of the manga. Volume 11 is currently out.
At this rate, we're looking at at least another 4 seasons lol. They better finish what they started! I hate when an anime only puts out 1 or 2 seasons then decides to quit.

For some reason, i never liked Konosuba season 1 so much. Granted, i think it's good but... yeah. A few months later, i saw the first three episodes again in anime convention and i found myself enjoying it bit more. Though there's still one character that still bothers/annoys me. See if you can guess who i mean.

And now we have season 2. Well, guess what? I like this one more than i though. And just when the fun is about to start, it ends. The only question i have to ask: Will there be more? I sure hope so.

If there's something i don't like, then it has to be the previews of the next episode. It ends before the speech is even finished. Wonder what idea was, supposedly it's meant as a joke. That's something i heard.
