Konosuba: God’s Blessing in this Wonderful World the Movie: Legend of Crimson is the first theatrical film in the Konosuba anime franchise and is animated by studio J.C.Staff with most of the staff from the television anime series returning. The film takes place after the events of the first two television seasons and adapts the 5th light novel volume from the original source material by creator Natsume Akatsuki.

Plot Synopsis (via Crunchyroll):

“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?!”

Konosuba: God’s Blessing in this Wonderful World is licensed by Crunchyroll and is available to stream on their official streaming service which includes the first season (dubbed/subbed), the first OVA (dubbed/subbed), the second season (subbed), and the second OVA (subbed). The English dub for the second season and second OVA are coming soon.
