Saw this on a YouTube channel today , Tokyosauras . Apparently the publisher is not going to do a 3rd season , according to the author . He thanked the animators & staff and the fans in his letter . It's not due to lack of popularity , but the " Go read the LN " by the publisher . I actually was shocked that the series has been killed . I hope Kadokawa has a change of heart , but doubtful ...

Today is a sad day. Konosuba was one of the best anime of the past two years and we're really gonna miss it.

watches video

So they do not eliminate the possibility of a potential Season 3, only that there won't be a Season 3 coming anytime soon.


Also, if you think about it Kadokawa's decision makes sense. They aren't going to gain much in terms of novel sales if they make a third season, as with 2 seasons the novels is already selling super well. A third season will not increase sales that much, hence diminishing returns. Its a shame that there won't be a continuation of a great anime anytime soon, but from a business point of view this move makes perfect sense.

I think season 3 is still possible. All this confirms is that there aren't any plans for a 3rd season at the moment. If Kadokawa ever feels that the light novel sales are dropping and need a small boost, I can see them asking for another season or the Megumin spin-off.

Yep, this.

Also, if my Japanese was better, I could buy the rest of the novels... and incentives are good.

Most anime adaptations, at their core, are meant to advertise the source material. Just look at what happened to Keijo. I honestly don't think I wanted a season 3, it would have run itself dry by then. They're not killing the series, they're just finding a logical end.

And here I am still watching the 2nd season, dang it. I can't get enough of the show, and no season 3 really sucks.

If you want S3 buy the LN. LN sales drive the creation of the anime.

For those of us who are poor (raises hand) then buying the LNs is a luxury. Heck, I'm not sure I'll be able to continue premium membership here as cheap as it is. Oh well, I can dream of a season 3.
