Revealed back in summer 2017, progress continues with the next anime project that’s in the works for Konosuba. The new feature film has the same main production members for it but is being animated by J.C. Staff instead of Studio DEEN and now the latest trailer for it has arrived – clocking in at just one minute – and a new key visual as well. The film is expected with a summer 2019 debut.
The TV series was animated at Studio DEEN with Takaomi Kansaki directing based on scripts by Makoto Uezeu and character designs by Kouichi Kikuta.
The cast includes Jun Fukushima as Kazuma Satou, Sora Amamiya as Aqua, Rie Takahashi as Megumin, Ai Kayano as Raratina Dustiness Ford, Sayuri Hara as Luna, Tetsu Inada as Ruffian, Ayaka Suwa as Chris, Takuya Eguchi as Kyouya Mitsurugi, Hiroki Yasumoto as Beldia Dullahan and Yui Horie as Wiz.
The original work comes from writer Akatsuki Natsume with illustrations by Mishima Kurone. The book began in the fall of 2013 and has thirteen volumes released so far. It also got the expected manga adaptation along the way with Masahito Watari illustrating that starting back in September 2014.

Plot concept: After a traffic accident, Kazuma Sato’s disappointingly brief life was supposed to be over, but he wakes up to see a beautiful girl before him.

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…
