Konosuba Season 3 Storyline
Fansites have been rife with numerous theories and speculations ever since Konosuba Season 2 ended. Many have tried to predict the plot for Konosuba season 3 and how it will answer questions leftover from the end of season 2.
Konosuba Season 2 showed that our protagonists were advancing in their quest to defeat the demon king; they killed two more of the king’s generals. But the questions regarding Kazuma and Megumin, the central romance, remain unanswered: will they or will they not get together? What of the future of the characters: Darkness and Aqua? Does our gang manage to take down the demon king once and for all? The opening episode of Konosuba season 2 also opened up plotlines about additional secondary antagonists.
Konosuba Season 3 may well utilize these characters in future storylines. Which path the storyline of Konosuba season 3 will take remains to be seen but if the previous seasons are any indication, fans are going to enjoy the next season of this fun-filled, action-packed anime immensely.
