MCM London Comic Con To Host UK Premiere of Saga of Tanya The Evil: The Movie

Anime Limited, in partnership with subscription-based video-on-demand streaming giant Crunchyroll, have announced that they will be showing the feature-length-film Saga of Tanya The Evil: The Movie at MCM London Comic Con on Sunday 26th May 2019 in Japanese with English subtitles.

Unlike past Anime Limited themed cinematic events this screening of Saga of Tanya The Evil: The Movie will take place inside the MCM London Comic Con venue, and as such a ticket to the venue on the specified day (or weekend ticket) is required. Additionally this will be a ‘FREE’ screening event at the MCM Cinema Truck; so an additional ticket purchase to view the film is not required – however it is only limited to 100 people.

Synopsis: 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 your friend. 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.

It’s worth noting that Saga of Tanya The Evil: The Movie is a sequel to the events of the main TV anime series; of which is available to watch on Crunchyroll. This means that the best enjoyment will be had from wacthing the series first before watching this film. Further screening information can be found on the official Anime Limited blog.

In addition to Saga of Tanya The Evil: The Movie being shown at MCM London Comic Con, and in turn receiving its UK Premiere, Anime Limited have confirmed that Crunchyroll will be attending the event with both merchandise and competitions taking place throughout the weekend. Further details about Crunchyroll’s attendance at MCM London Comic Con can be found on the Anime Limited website.
