Fans of comedy series KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!) are in for some divine news. Earlier today, the show’s official Twitter account announced that a second season was greenlit for production. The news was accompanied by a pair of illustrations, which thank fans for their support.
Both pieces were drawn by light novel illustrator Kurone Mishima.
Konosuba is based on Natsume Akatsuki’s light novel series of the same name. Takaomi Kanasaki (Is This a Zombie?, Tokyo Ravens) directed the first season at Studio DEEN, with Koichi Kikuta providing character designs. Makoto Uezu (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Akame ga KILL!) was in charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll is currently streaming Konosuba on their digital platform. The first nine episodes are avaialble to free members, while premium subscribers can watch the entire run.

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…
