Crunchyroll has released a new clip from the upcoming movie of the Saga of Tanya the Evil anime. The first trailer for the movie can be viewed above.
In the new clip, the titular Tanya is flying through the air alongside her 5th Aerial Mage Wing in order to defeat the enemy army, the Free Republic. However, when the enemy is nowhere to be found, Tanya realizes she and her battalion have fallen for a trap designed to stretch their troops and leave their main force exposed. Rather than return to aid the main force, Tanya decides to do the unexpected and lead the small battalion in a direct assault on the enemy’s HQ, hoping to destroy the Free Republic’s leadership and confuse their soldiers.
Saga of Tanya the Evil the Movie acts as a direct sequel to the 2017 anime series, taking place immediately after the events of the show. The anime follows a man who’s pushed to his death, only for a mysterious voice to begin demanding the man refer to it as God before the man is allowed into heaven. Being an atheist, the man refuses and instead calls the voice Being X. Being X, thinking the man lacks faith and needs more time to learn the power of belief, reincarnates the man in a version of early 1900s Germany, called the Empire, that exists in an alternate world.
The man is reborn as a girl named Tanya, but retains all the memories of her previous life. Recognizing the similarities to Earth’s history, Tanya uses her knowledge of how major events are bound to transpire, as well as her cunning intellect, to become one of the most formidable pilots in the Empire’s air force. Her hope is to rise in the ranks and then lead a life of relaxation on the rear lines as war with the Empire’s neighbors begins to grow. However, Being X sets events in motion that push Tanya to the front, and also begins to escalate the conflicts that will inevitably start a world war.
Saga of Tanya the Evil the Movie has already premiered in Japan, but the film won’t release internationally until May 16. You can find the anime series on Crunchyroll if you need to catch up before watching the movie. Tanya and her allies also star in a non-canon anime, Isekai Quartet, which sees all the characters from Saga of Tanya the Evil, Konosuba, Re:Zero, and Overlord get transported to Earth and attend high school together.
