posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Isekai Quartet crossover anime project began streaming a new "Relay PV Konosuba Version" promotional video for the anime on Sunday. The video features characters from both the KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!! and Saga of Tanya the Evil franchises. The video continues where the previous video left off after the red button is shown in the world of KONOSUBA. Kazuma is gathering treasure inside a cave, including the red button, while Aqua is being consumed by a frog. Meanwhile, Megumin and Darkness are camped outside, with Darkness bemoaning not being able to go in the cave, and Megumin refusing to go in due to her explosion magic likely causing a cave-in if used inside. In the world of Saga of Tanya the Evil, Tanya Degurechaff insists on not participating on the research project for the operation orb, but is forced to by her superior officer.
The anime will premiere this spring, and will be a crossover anime featuring characters from the Overlord, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, and Saga of Tanya the Evil franchises. The anime will feature the characters in super deformed form.
Minoru Ashina (Kaiju Girls, Pure Pure Purea Desu Overlord shorts) is scripting and directing the project. Minoru Takehara is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Studio Puyukai (Kaiju Girls, Lord Marksman and Vanadis, Pure Pure Purea Desu Overlord shorts) is animating the work.
In the anime's story, a mysterious button suddenly appears one day, and characters who press it are taken to a new world to gather.
Kadokawa stated in the anime's announcement that all four franchises together have more than 16 million book copies in print, and more than 500,000 combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales totals. All four light novel series are in the "isekai" (another world) genre, and each has inspired manga and anime adaptations.
