The staff of the anime adaptation of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! (KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) announced on Thursday that a second season has been greenlit. The first television anime adaptation premiered on January 13, and the 10th and final episode aired on Thursday (Wednesday night).

Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan

The original light novel illustrator Kurone Mishima posted an image to celebrate the news:

Natsume Akatsuki's light novel series centers around Kazuma Satō, a hikikomori (shut-in) die-hard fan of games, anime, and manga. A traffic accident brings his disappointingly brief life to an end … or it should have, but he wakes up and sees a beautiful girl who introduces herself as a goddess. "Hey, I have some good news — would you like to go to an alternate world? You may only bring one thing you like with you."

He responds, "…So, I'll bring you." With that, he is transported to another world and his great adventure subjugating the demon king begins … but first the hard work of finding food, clothing, and shelter begins. Kazuma wants to live in peace, but the goddess raises one problem after another, and then the demon king's army has its eyes set on him.

An original video anime on Blu-ray Disc will ship with the limited edition of the ninth volume of the original light novels in June. The television anime's first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume will ship on March 25 with an original PC game.
