The first-ever anime adaptation of the Konosuba Story hit the screens in 2016. Since then, the Konosuba franchise has kept on getting bigger with its manga, movies, spin-offs, and games.
Today, Konosuba has cemented its position as one of the most iconic Isekai Anime Series of all time. The situation is such that, anyone who has heard of Isekia Anime knows about Konosuba.
