The official website for the anime adaptation of Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki's Saga of Tanya the Evil (Yōjo Senki) novel series began streaming a 200-second clip from the franchise's anime film on Friday. The clip shows Tanya and her unit being fooled by an enemy stratagem, but turning the tables and assaulting the enemy headquarters.
The film opened in Japan on February 8. Kadokawa reported to the Bunka Tsushin news website on Thursday that the film has earned 100 million yen (about US$906,285) in its first five days.
The film's story follows from the events of the television anime. In 1926, Tanya and her battalion return home from defeating remnants of the Republic's army. However, when they arrive they receive word of a massive mobilization near the border with the Russy Federation, so the Empire's army must prepare. At the same time, a multinational army under the leadership of the Allied Kingdom moves into the Russy Federation. The enemy of an enemy is a friend, but among the Allied Kingdom army is Mary Sue, a girl who has sworn to exact justice against the Empire for the death of her father.
Most of the staff and cast returned from the earlier television anime.
