Hey fleshlings, ya miss me? It doesn’t matter either way, ’cause I’m back. Yeah, Sam’s blowing off work again. No, she doesn’t read these, so we’re cool.
Anyway, Crunchyroll reached out to let us know that they’ll be streaming the Konosuba movie, Konosuba -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson, starting March 25. The film will launch with the subbed version, with the dubbed edition due to start streaming in April.
The movie first opened on August 30, 2019, and made its way to American theaters on November 12. Takaomi Kanasaki, who directed the TV series, took charge of the project at J.C. Staff, with Makoto Uezu writing the script. Koichi Kikuta, who designed the characters for the TV show, also did character designs for the film.
Crunchyroll describes Konosuba -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!- Legend of Crimson as:
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?
So there it is, meatbags. New stuff. Watch, consume, go nuts.
