The animation “Kono Subarashii Sekai Ni Shukufuku Wo!” that started airing with TOKYO MX on January 2016 finished its season with the 10th episode on March 16th, and with this last episode came a big announcement about the production of the second season.
The popular series “Kono Subarashii Sekai Ni Shukufuku Wo!” printed and published by Sneaker Bunko is a fantasy based light novel with 8 volumes released. The ever so popular series has topped sales of over 1.5 million copies and with the airing of the animation series the fan base has grown even larger, and is assumed that all fans are thrilled with the making of the second season.
The story revolves around Kazuma Satou who finds himself thrown in a RPG game like a world in another dimension. Kazuma finds himself joining a group with the following characters: Aqua- a trouble making no good goddess, Megumin- a magic user with a bad case of middle school syndrome, and Darkness- a non-stop fantasizing knight.
Just like any story which takes place in a different dimension, the characters are faced with fighting monsters and working part time jobs in order to make some money for living. The four carefree characters drawn in a challenging outlook of another dimension is very charming. There is still a lot unknown about the second season including the airdate, there is no doubt that the 4 characters will be shown and we look forward to more updates.
Also although the 1st season of the animation is over, the animation related products still keep coming. One of the hot topic products is the 1st volume of the Blu-ray/DVD set, which comes with a generous and surprising bonus of the original PC game “Kono Subarashii Sekai Ni Shukufuku Wo! in the life” has been released on March 25th.
Folowing the generous bonus for the first volume, the second volume comes with the digested clips of the advanced screening of “Kono Hanayaka Na Utage Ni Kassai Wo!” and volume 3 with the bonus of “Kaki oroshi comic” by Kurone Mishima (who was in charge of the original illustrations for the animation).
Coming up in June we also have the release of the 9th volume of the light novel. Released with the 9th volume is the original animation blu-ray attached bundle not only with the characters; Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness, but with Megumin’s self-announced rival Yunyun who did not appear in the first season will be waiting to make her appearance.
And Yunyun’s interacting with the other characters is definitely something to keep an eye out for.
