Legend of Crimson
WHAT: Following May’s highly-anticipated Crunchyroll “Movie Night showing of “Saga of Tanya the Evil – the Movie -” and the partnership that brought the theatrical premiere of “Mob Psycho 100 II” and the “Yuri!!! on ICE” marathon event to cinemas nationwide, Crunchyroll and Fathom Events proudly announce the next Crunchyroll Movie Night: “KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson.” Initially released to critical acclaim in Japan in August, Crunchyroll Movie Night will be the first opportunity for U.S. fans to catch “KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson.” In addition to the full feature, fans will view an exclusive interview with Jun Fukushima (voice actor of Kazuma) and Rie Takahashi (voice actor of Megumin) that gives an exciting behind-the-scenes look at the new film.

SYNOPSIS: A video game-loving shut-in, Satou Kazuma’s life should’ve ended when he was hit by a truck, but through a twist of fate, he ends up reincarnating in another world–and dragging the troublemaking goddess, Aqua, the wildly dorky mage, Megumin, and the unrelentingly delusional lady knight, Darkness, with him. Now, the Crimson Demon village that Megumin and Yunyun are from is facing a threat that could mean its 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?!
