Crunchyroll announced they are teaming up with Fathom Events to debut the U.S. theatrical premiere of Konosuba.
Konosuba -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson will premiere in over 600 theaters in the United States on Tuesday, November 12 at 7:00 PM local time. The film originally premiered in Japan on August 30, 2019.
During the premiere fans will get to see an exclusive interview with Jun Fukushima the voice actor of Kazuma alongside Rie Takahashi the voice actor of Megumin. The exclusive interview will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the film.
Here’s the official description of the film:
“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 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?!”
Along with the film’s premiere Crunchyroll will launch Konosuba branded gear through their Crunchyroll Loves brand. The Konosuba line will feature six items including a special T-shirt. The gear will be available on the Crunchyroll Store in November.
They also released new Konosuba themed stickers throgh their Crunchyroll Digital Drops app. The stickers feature Kazuma and his adventuring party.
Konosuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful Word is a light novel series written by Natsume Akatsuki that originally began as a web novel series. In 2012 the series was turned in a light novel series with illustrations by Kurone Mishima.
The series was then adapted into a manga with illustrations by Masahito Watari and Joseph Yokobori.
