KonoSuba Season 3 Review – My Favorite Season!

Article at a glance:

  • Despite KonoSuba being primarily known for its comedy, Season 3 introduces intriguing plot elements involving the Princess, Chris’s mission, and Darkness, adding more depth compared to previous seasons.
  • The season showcases significant character development, especially for Kazuma through his interactions with Iris, Chris, and Darkness, while Aqua and Megumin take a backseat.

I know it is a little early but since it is June, I have to start reviewing the anime for Spring 2024 bit by bit. There is a lot of stuff to review and I want to free up my last week of June to prepare for the Summer season starting from July. So yeah, I will put out reviews for animes I consider “safe to review”. I decided to start with my review for KonoSuba Season 3 because this is my favorite season of the anime and one of my favorites of the year so far. And I know for a fact that my views on it will not change no matter what they put out in the remaining 3 episodes.

So keeping the introduction, welcome back to another review and we are looking at KonoSuba Season 3. Let’s get started right away.

Plot

Come on, you know you don’t watch KonoSuba for the plot. We all are here for the unhinged fun and the characters. Still even considering that, between all the stuff with the Princess, Chris’s “secret mission” and whatever is going on with Darkness, this season had quite a few interesting plot elements. Certainly more than Seasons 1 and 2 had. And I am aware that a pretty big reveal is also coming up in the remaining episodes.

So even though the plot is not the main selling point of KonoSuba, the plot for this season was quite good all things considered. So yeah, thumbs up for that. And there is a lot more plot-driven comedy in this season as well. Compare this season to Seasons 1 and 2 and I think you’ll see my point.

Characters

Oh boy, where do I even start with this one? Let’s begin with Iris. Possibly the best addition to this season. Her mere existence brought out a whole new side of Kazuma. Most of what Kazuma does this season is partially motivated because of her. And well, because he wants to stay in the Royal Palace longer but still, those two motivations go hand in hand.

Aqua and Megumin didn’t get to do much in this season. That’s fair, both of them had their arcs previously. The side characters in focus in this season were Chris and Darkness. And trust me, both of them still have more to do in this season. And by the way, Kazuma’s interactions with the two of them and Iris were the best thing about this season. Whenever I watch KonoSuba I can kind of picture how much fun the voice actors had recording for this anime. And that charm carries over to their portrayal of their respective characters adding more to the comedy.

Animations and Soundtracks

I already talked about how good the voice performance of the season is. I don’t remember the animations of Seasons 1 and 2 very well but I do think that Season 3 had a better budget. The quality of the animations feels better now so I feel like the animations have been updated somewhat. The opening and ending themes are fun once again and the OSTs are quite good as well.

Summing Up

So well, here are my final review scores for KonoSuba Season 3:

  • Plot – 8/10
  • Character – 10/10
  • Animations – 8/10
  • Soundtracks – 7/10
  • Enjoyment – 11/10
  • Overall – 9.5/10

I loved KonoSuba Season 3. As I said, by far my favorite season of the series so far. It has been absolutely unhinged so far and I am sure it will continue to be just that for the remaining 3 episodes as well. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
