About Saga of Tanya the Evil the Movie:
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 the best friend you could possibly have. 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 the Movie previously made its UK debut at MCM London Comic Con (which we have a review available on our site!) back in May 2019 thanks to Crunchyroll who owns the rights to the film itself. Crunchyroll provides both new and older titles on their service each season. For films they have recently acquired studio 3Hz’s Black Fox and studio J.C.Staff’s KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! Crimson Legend.
