Crunchyroll Movie Night brings Saga of Tanya the Evil to the big screen

Earlier this year Crunchyroll launched its first Fathom Event with a theatrical release for the premiere of Mob Psycho 100 season 2. It was the first event that spearheaded what would be a year-long partnership between Crunchyroll and Fathom. This resulted in an assortment of anime titles premiering on the big screen. Today, Crunchyroll has announced its next Movie Night with Fathom events with the U.S. theatrical premiere of Saga of Tanya the Evil – The Movie. The event will take place on May 16th and will premiere in more than 500 theatres across the country. The movie will show at 7:30 pm local time.

Fans who attend the Crunchyroll Movie Night will also see an exclusive interview with the director of the film, Yukata Uemura. This will also give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the drama and inspiration for this new story arc. Earlier this year, the film was released in Japan which received critical acclaim. It is a direct sequel to the series, which was inspired by the light novel of the same name.

The synopsis for Saga of Tanya the Evil is as follows:

The time is UC 1926. The Imperial Army’s 203rd Air Mage Battalion led by Major Tanya Degurechaff has won the battle to the south against the Republic’s stragglers. They expected to be given a vacation after returning victorious, but instead receive special orders from Staff HQ as soon as they get home. They are told that there were 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 spearheaded by the Commonwealth set foot in Federation territory. As they say, the enemy of an enemy is your friend. They suffer through misfortune purely out of national interest, and among them is a young girl. She is Warrant Officer Mary Sue, and she takes up arms hoping to bring the Empire, who killed her father, to justice.

Saga of Tanya the Evil is the third Crunchyroll Movie Night event, which follows the previous theatrical premieres of Mob Psycho 100 season 2 and Yuri on ICE! Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased at
