Following a successful partnership that brought the theatrical premiere of “Mob Psycho 100 II” and the “Yuri!!! on ICE” marathon event to the Crunchyroll community across the country, Fathom Events and Crunchyroll have announced the U.S. theatrical debut of “Saga of Tanya the Evil – the Movie -.” A direct sequel to the anime series, the movie was initially released to critical acclaim in Japan earlier this year. In addition to the full feature, attendees will also view an exclusive interview with the film’s director, Yutaka Uemura, including a behind-the-scenes look at the drama and inspiration for this brand new story arc.

The epic film follows the life of Tanya Degurechaff as she continues her misadventures, avoiding death and being sent to hell, while battling the forces of the Republic Army.


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.

The event begins Thursday, May 16 at 7:30 PM local time. Tickets for “Saga of Tanya the Evil – the Movie -” can be purchased online by visiting, or at participating theater box offices.
