Pulp Fiction screenwriter Roger Avary gave a 5 star rating to the KONOSUBA - God's Blessing on This Wonderful World– Legend of Crimson (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! Kurenai Densetsu) anime film on his Letterboxd account on Sunday. Although he did not write a review for the film, he posted on Twitter that it was "easily one of the best experiences in a cinema I've ever had. I would go as far as saying it's the reason cinema was invented."
The film is based on Natsume Akatsuki's Konosuba - God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! light novel series. The film opened in Japan on August 30 and in the United States on November 12 and 14. In the U.S., it opened in more than 600 theaters and earned a total of US$1,134,786.
Crunchyroll describes the film:
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?!
