The KonoSuba Movie has been confirmed to be a hit, and it was already a smash hit in its own right.
In a tweet on March 23, 2015, Konosubasuban announced that it was the No. 1 most viewed anime online for the week ending March 26.
Since then, it’s been streamed in over 4.7 million countries.
Its premiere on Netflix has also been met with rave reviews, and the movie has been viewed more than 6.2 million times on YouTube.
The film is the latest in a line of titles to make it to streaming services, including The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, and Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Valhalla.
That’s a good start, but fans are still waiting to see if the film will live up to its hype.
In the meantime, the Konosubsu movie is getting plenty of positive reviews online, with several outlets calling it a classic.
“The Konosube is definitely the most entertaining anime online,” the Entertainment Weekly review concluded.
“It’s a well-executed slice-of-life tale that’s filled with memorable moments and moments of sheer joy.
There are some pretty good performances in the film and the characters, but that’s all the more reason to check out the original source: the KonoSuba manga.”
