Ready to watch the comeback of Konosuba after a whole 3 years of silence? It’s been 3 years since our iconic comedy isekai was last seen and now it has made a comeback dedicated to focusing on the life of one character, everyone’s favorite, MEGUMIN!
While some fans are controversial about the somewhat biased favorability of Kadokawo for making an entire movie based on Megumin and the next anime season or spin-off also being based on Megumin. Nevertheless, it was interesting and fun to see the side characters getting the limelight, and watching how our cute little Megumin grew up to be a walking nuclear warhead launcher is certainly something exciting!
The trailer of episode 1 has already been released and we got to Megumin’s back-story of what made her love EXPLOSION !! Is it her mom? A legendary fire wizard? The mysterious hooded figure seems like a core character for the plot of Konosuba, Explosion edition. Without waiting for any further ado, Let’s dive right into all that we know about Konosuba, an explosion in a wonderful world Episode 1.
