So S2's first volume sold even more than the first season (of course it has an event ticket). But right now:

Season 1 volume 1: 9,516
Season 2 volume 1: 11,470

It's likely without the event ticket it would have sold roughly the same, but I'm really glad to see it still selling well! We might just get that season 3.

Ecchi series like Konosuba depend a lot on their merchandising. See High School DxD. So far they have four figures (none for Darkness) and three nendoroids. Aqua and Megumin have lots of hype. First season yielded figures only from Bellfine - not a good sign but we still got season 2. Season 2 yielded GSC and Freeing (to be released in Fall), which is a great sign with Bellfine figures getting a re-release. If fans in Japan show their love by dishing out $$$ on figures and other non light novel merch on top of light novel + BD sales, maybe we'll get a season 3... Hopefully!

No Darkness figures? What the fuck anime?

This is heresy. I shall buy a hundred Darkness dakimakuras to compensate.

I don't see how they do a season 3?with what they changed from LN 3 they were still ok. But really they changed a lot in LN 4. Especially the anime orginal ending. I don't see how they can have a season 3. Unless season 3 is only 5 episodes. Or they cut out LN 6, 8-10. I guess they can make a season 3, but it would have to be the last one they do. because of what they did with the last part of season 2, Season 3 can only be LN 5 and LN 7. If not it would cause a lot of continuality issues.

Your being to literal. Story writers can easily finagle it to put it back on track if they need/want to. Throw in some extra episodes of original content, slide stuff around, boom, easily done.

Its not impossible for them to get back on track with the LN. Other shows have done it before. For example, the end of the first season of Magi was very different from the manga, but they were able to adjust it so that it could follow the manga again for the second season. That second season was completely faithful to the manga, which allows them to continue to follow the manga if they make a third season (Hope they do).

My point is, it isn't impossible for the animators to start following the LN again if they take the right steps and cover the difference.

Even if they do adjust it. You still wouldn't be able to do LN 8, and LN 9 would be weird as ***

Going with your spoilers, could they not just invent an entierly diffrent reason to get invited or go there? Its not to hard for them to make up original content that has nothing to do with the LN's to pull them where they need to be. Hell, they could even have the author suggest something. What you wrote really doesnt sound hard to mesh around and fake. They do it often enough.

See if they do that then you really would be screwing over LN 6, 8-10. At least as it stands now you could do a little manuevering to get LN 9 animated. But if they do what you said for 6, then LN 9 and 10 would suffer greatly if they did that. Or worse


As for LN 8 it is almost impossible to do that now.
