Konosuba finally on Blu-Ray! Film is coming to Crunchyroll!

Great news for Konosuba fans, I got two great news for anyone who loves the series. You might have watched the anime on Crunchyroll subbed and dubbed multiple times and you might even read ahead in the light novel and manga, but this news will make you cough out some money. In a tweet from Rightstuf, an online shop retail where fans buy anime products, they revealed that Discotek Media, an English company that license and sells DVDs, will be releasing the Blu-Ray set of season 1 of Konosuba (also known as KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!). This season 1 set will include all the episodes and OVA in English Sub and Dub. Season 1 will be released on May 26th, 2020.

Rightsuf synopsis

Kazuma Sato decides that today is the day to get out of the house for a bit. Since he dies, pointlessly, it’s clearly a bad choice. The goddess who greets him in the afterlife, however, offers him a chance to be reborn in a world not unlike that of a video game, and as a bonus she’ll even throw in a cool item or power! Can’t possibly be a bad choice, right? Except he arrives with no money at all, dead average skills, and his “bonus” isn’t useful at all–since he picked the goddess, Aqua, herself. How are the two of them supposed to defeat the evil Devil King and live happily ever after? Well, for them, it probably starts with day laboring rather than adventuring. And it’s only going to get more disappointing from there!

Speaking of Konosuba, anyone remember the movie Konosuba – Legend of Crimson from last year? I got good news from Crunchyroll, the movie KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson will officially be on Crunchyroll website so fans can watch it. The movie is coming on March 25th, but the English Dub will be released on April 2020. And yes, this will be for all regions in the world where you can watch Crunchyroll.

synopsis:

A video game-loving shut-in, Satou Kazuma’s life should’ve ended when he was hit by a truck, but through a twist in fate, he ends up reincarnating in another world–and dragging the goddess, Aqua, along with him.

“I’m going to enjoy the life of an adventurer that I’ve always fantasized about from RPGs! Time to be the hero!” But in spite of his enthusiasm, only trouble was waiting for Kazuma.

Namely, the troublemaking goddess, Aqua; The wildly dorky mage, Megumin; And the unrelentingly delusional lady knight, Darkness; He ends up forming a party with these potentially powerful, but incredibly unfortunate individuals, which leads to deep debt, being tried for treason, slaying the Demon King’s generals, and occasionally dying (again).

Then, one day, the Crimson Demon girl Yun Yun says something that makes the entire group freeze up: “I want to have your babies, Kazuma!”

Upon hearing the details, it turns out that the Crimson Demon village that Megumin and Yunyun are from is facing a threat that could mean it’s ending. Kazuma and his gang follow Yunyun, who returns to the Crimson Demon village intent on saving it… when they are faced with their greatest threat yet! What will become of the unremarkable adventurer Kazuma’s life in another world?!

Are you guys ready for this spring season?
