With fantasy, action, comedy and ecchi elements combined, Konosuba is a parody isekai anime that is interesting to watch.
Konosuba follows a homebody otaku who finds himself in an afterlife slumber, but is given the chance to live in a fantasy world.
After he tries to outsmart the goddess of death and chooses to spend time volunteering in a dangerous world, all his dreams come crashing down when he realizes that his isekai version won’t make him the overpowered MC or harem protagonist he wants.
So, here is the order of the Konosuba anime series according to the storyline so far:
1. KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world! (2016)
|Title||Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!|
Kazuma Satou 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!
2. KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!: God’s Blessings On This Wonderful Choker! (2016)
|Title||Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!: Kono Subarashii Choker ni Shufuku wo|
An unaired episode bundled with the 9th volume of the light novel.
The party ends up running into Megumin’s self-proclaimed rival, Yunyun, during a trip to Wiz’s shop. Annoyed at the increased noise level brought on by additional company, Kazuma notices a choker at his feet.
After trying it on casually, he runs into big trouble: it’s a magical choker designed to make wishes come true, and until his wish does come true, it’s going to keep tightening around his neck until he’s strangled to death!
The others work hard to help make his “dreams” come true so that the choker will come loose, with Wiz offering her thighs as pillows, Darkness doing push ups to make her chest sway, and Megumin and Yunyun engaged in strip rock paper scissors… while Aqua runs errands. But will even that be enough to make the choker come off?
3. KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world! 2 (2017)
|Title||Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!|
When Kazuma Satou died, he was given two choices: pass on to heaven or be revived in a fantasy world. After choosing the new world, the goddess Aqua tasked him with defeating the Demon King, and let him choose any weapon to aid him. Unfortunately, Kazuma chose to bring Aqua herself and has regretted the decision ever since then.
Not only is he stuck with a useless deity turned party archpriest, the pair also has to make enough money for living expenses. To add to their problems, their group continued to grow as more problematic adventurers joined their ranks.
Their token spellcaster, Megumin, is an explosion magic specialist who can only cast one spell once per day and refuses to learn anything else. There is also their stalwart crusader, Lalatina “Darkness” Dustiness Ford, a helpless masochist who makes Kazuma look pure in comparison.
Second season of KonoSuba continues to follow Kazuma and the rest of his party through countless more adventures as they struggle to earn money and have to deal with one another’s problematic personalities. However, things rarely go as planned, and they are often sidetracked by their own idiotic tendencies.
4. KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world! 2: God’s Blessings on These Wonderful Works of Art! (2017)
|Title||Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2: Kono Subarashii Geijutsu ni Shukufuku wo!|
An unaired episode bundled with the 12th volume of the light novel.
After returning from his trip to Arcanretia, Kazuma is living life without a care in the world, thanks to his debts being all paid off by the reward money he earned from eliminating one of the Devil King’s generals, Hans.
One day, a rookie adventurer named Ran comes up to him in the Guild Hall asking for a handshake. She’s apparently become a fan of Kazuma after his consecutive defeat of the Devil King’s generals!
This puts him in an amazing mood, but it’s not long before the Guild receptionist Luna appears, asking him to take on a quest to eliminate a golem. Wanting to look good in front of a fan, Kazuma ends up accepting, and heads towards ancient ruins with Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness in tow.
5. KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson (2019)
|Title||Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Kurenai Densetsu|
A video game-loving shut-in, Satou Kazuma’s life should’ve ended when he was hit by a truck, but through a twist of fate, he ends up reincarnating in another world–and dragging the troublemaking goddess, Aqua, the wildly dorky mage, Megumin, and the unrelentingly delusional lady knight, Darkness, with him.
Now, the Crimson Demon village that Megumin and Yunyun are from is facing a threat that could mean its 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?!
6. KONOSUBA -An Explosion on This Wonderful World! (2023)

Then one day, her little sister finds a black kitten in the woods. But this cat isn’t just a new furry friend—she’s the key to awakening a Dark God!
