We’ve been talking a lot about anime on the big screen of late, from our recent screenings of Promare through to the exciting news of Weathering With You coming to the UK in January. But we’re not done with our theatrical anime plans for the year just yet, as today we’re proud to confirm that we’re teaming up with our great friends at Crunchyroll to bring a beloved Crunchyroll Movie Night to UK cinemas!
What’s more, the subject of this movie night is one of our current office favourites, as you’ll be able to catch Konosuba the Movie – Legend of Crimson in selected cinemas across the country, giving you a chance to spend some time with everyone’s favourite bunch of isekai idiots and delve into the past of the explosive Megumin.
You’ll be able to catch the film on the big screen for one night only, on Thursday, December 12th*, so as time is short don’t hesitate and book your tickets now! Screenings can be found in selected locations at the following cinema chains:
If you want to see a list of cinemas screening the film alongside screening times (where available), scroll a little further down this blog post. Please note that some Vue screenings may not yet be populated at the time of publication, so check the aforementioned list to see if the film is coming to a cinema near you!
* UPDATE (December 15th) – a number of additional and rearranged screenings have now been added to selected locations over the coming week, with a select number in early January 2020 – you can also find details of these screenings below.
Firstly however, for all of the details about the film, we have a little more for you below.
A video game-loving shut-in, Satou Kazuma’s life should’ve ended when he was hit by a truck, but through a twist in fate, he ends up reincarnating in another world–and dragging the goddess, Aqua, along with him.
“I’m going to enjoy the life of an adventurer that I’ve always fantasized about from RPGs! Time to be the hero!” But in spite of his enthusiasm, only trouble was waiting for Kazuma.
Namely, the troublemaking goddess, Aqua;The wildly dorky mage, Megumin; And the unrelentingly delusional lady knight, Darkness; He ends up forming a party with these potentially powerful, but
incredibly unfortunate individuals, which leads to deep debt, being tried for treason, slaying the Demon King’s generals, and occasionally dying (again).
Then, one day, the Crimson Demon girl Yun Yun says something that makes the entire group freeze up: “I want to have your babies, Kazuma!”
Upon hearing the details, it turns out that the Crimson Demon village that Megumin and Yunyun are from is facing a threat that could mean it’s 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?!
