The Hong Kong distributor Neofilms recently announced that Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! Kurenai Densets (God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World– Legend of Crimson), the anime that is based on Natsume Akatsuki’s Konosuba – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! light novel series is getting a film, in Hong Kong beginning on November 7. It was previously hinted by Neofilms at a screening of the film.
Crunchyroll and Fathom Events are screening the film in the United States, and they describe the film 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 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 its 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?!”
The movie opened in Japan on 30 August and it ranked at #8 in its debut weekend. Moreover, the film had earned 510,601,900 yen which is about US$4.72 million as of 15 September. The movie launched 4DX screenings in Japan on 4 October.
