Yeah, I know the internet is overflowing with fake news on this day, but this is a legit announcement. In a new tweet released today, Kadokawa announced the release date of Konosuba Volume 17 and Dust 6 to be the first of May, 2020.
The tweet contents are as follows:
Konosuba Volume 17: Releasing on May 1st! This volume will be the conclusion to the story.
However… In the afterword, there will be some information about the “after story” that never made it into the web version!?
Also, this may be shrunk down, but this is the first reveal of Mishima Kurone-sensei’s new cover art!
(1st of May) Along with the final volume of Konosuba, the final volume of the spinoff series “A time in the limelight for this fool too!” will be released! 🎊
In Kazuma’s absence, the Demon King’s Army launches an attack on Axel!? Dust will make full use of all the cunning that he has cultivated as a delinquent adventurer and all the relationship that he has built up(?) as he readies to confront this final battle.
Please bear witness to the final battle of Dust, the man who was loved by dragons above all else!
