Konosuba: Legend of Crimson opens March in PH
Odex, the group responsible for showing anime in the Philippines has announced that the massively anticipated Konosuba: Legend of Crimson will open in theaters March 2020.
The film will be an adaptation of the light novel Konosuba – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Which was written by Natsume Akatsuki.
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?!
Odex will also be releasing the anime film in other territories including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.
The film opened in Japan on August 30, and ranked at #8 in its debut weekend. The film had earned 510,601,900 yen (about US$4.72 million) as of September 15. The movie added 4DX screenings in Japan on October 4. The film’s two-day screening in the United States on November 12 and 14 earned a total of US$1,134,786.
