KONOSUBA Megumin Spinoff Anime Reveals Explosive New Trailer


If you’re fired up for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of KONOSUBA: An Explosion on This Wonderful World!—a KONOSUBA spinoff novel series written by Natsume Akatsuki and illustrated by Kurone Mishima—our first look at the project has officially arrived. Following up on a teaser trailer in July, the first full promotional movie is here to light the fuse for the project and get everyone ready for 2023 premiere plans.

Takaomi Kanasaki, who previously helmed the KONOSUBA anime, is on board as chief director, with Yujiro Abe (Kaguya-sama: Love is War episode director) directing the project. Makoto Uezu returns on series composition along with other familiar staff, including Koichi Kikuta as character designer and Masato Koda as composer. 

Yen Press publishes the original spinoff novels and describes them:

My name is…

One year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire hit the scene, Megumin, the “Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan,” is hard at work. Ever since a life-changing encounter in her youth, the young wizard has dedicated her every waking moment to the pursuit of the ultimate offensive magic, Explosion! (Well…every moment not spent hustling food from her self-proclaimed rival.) And while the big sister’s away, the little one will play. On a routine trip into the woods, Megumin’s little sister, Komekko, finds a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing a Dark God’s tomb
