Crunchyroll, the incredibly popular anime brand, has partnered with Fathom Events to bring fans the next “Crunchyroll Movie Night” with the U.S. premiere of Saga of Tanya the Evil – the Movie. A direct sequel to the anime series titled Saga of Tanya the Evil, which drew inspiration from the light novel of the same name.

Initially released in Japan, this sequel details the life of Tanya Degurechaff, who continues her misadventures, (like avoiding being sent to hell and death), all while fighting the Republic Army forces.

Taking place in UC 1926, The Imperial Army’s 203rd Air Mage Battalion, led by Major Tanya Degurechaff, won the battle to the south against the Republic’s stragglers. After their victory, they receive special orders from Staff HQ upon arriving home, and are told there are signs of a large-scale deployment near the Empire-Federation border.

Faced with the prospect of a new major enemy, the desperate Empire fans the flame of war.

Meanwhile, an international volunteer army led by the Commonwealth arrive in Federation territory. Among them is Warrant Officer Mary Sue, who takes up arms hoping to bring the Empire, who killed her father, to justice. Check out the trailer for the movie below:

This debut offers fans an exclusive interview with Yutaka Uemura, the film’s director, giving a one of a kind behind the scenes insight into the drama and inspiration for a brand new story arc.

Saga of Tanya the Evil – the Movie, will premiere in over 500 cinemas nationwide Thursday, May 16 and tickets are already available. Be sure to check if there is a showing near you!
