KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! began as a novel series in 2012 by author Natsume Akatsuki. KonoSuba follows Kazuma Satou, a shut-in who initially lives in modern day Japan.
After meeting an untimely death, he is given the opportunity to reincarnate in a fantasy world by the goddess Aqua. After being allowed to choose some manner of powerful ability, Kazuma chooses to have the goddess herself accompany him on his journey, much to her dismay.
In 2016 an anime series for KonoSuba premiered from Studio Deen, which ran for two seasons through 2017. Most recently in 2019 a movie KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson received a theatrical release in Japan and select theaters in the United States.
