Konosuba -God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!- Film Opens in 2019

Konosuba -God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!- Film Opens in 2019Back in June, we reported that Konosuba -God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!- would be getting an animated film.

Now we’ve learned said film will be opening in Japan in 2019.

That news comes from jacket of the latest Konosuba light novel, which comes out November 1.

The film will be directed by series director Takaomi Kanasaki, and writer Makoto Uezu, character designer Koichi Kikuta and composer Masato Koda are returning too. The big change is the studio: while the show was animated at Deen, the film will be animated at J.C. Staff.

If you’re new to the Konosuba phenomenon, here’s a synopsis from Crunchyroll:

After a traffic accident, Kazuma Sato’s disappointingly brief life was supposed to be over, but he wakes up to see a beautiful girl before him. She claims to be a goddess, Aqua, and asks if he would like to go to another world and bring only one thing with him. Kazuma decides to bring the goddess herself, and they are transported to a fantasy world filled with adventure, ruled by a demon king. Now Kazuma only wants to live in peace, but Aqua wants to solve many of this world’s problems, and the demon king will only turn a blind eye for so long…

Looking forward to the Konosuba film?
