The Japanese group duo, known for performing the end theme songs for Overlord and Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World, will perform the opening theme for the upcoming movie Saga of Tanya the Evil. The group has performed the opening song “Jingo Jungle” which is used in the Saga of Tanya the Evil TV anime series.
The official website for the anime movie adaption of the Japanese light novel series written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki released a teaser trailer in October.
Saga of Tanya the Evil tells the story of an atheist Japanese salesman who is murdered and then reincarnated as young blonde, blue-eyed girl who is a ranking officer in the military during a World War II type of era. This is Tanya Degurechaff. She is known as the Devil of the Rhine, one of the greatest soldiers the Empire has ever seen! Reborn as destitute, she will do whatever it takes to survive, even if it means life behind the barrel of a gun.
The film’s story follows from the events of the television anime, with Tanya and her battalion returning home from defeating remnants of the Republic’s army. Upon their arrival, they receive word of a massive mobilization near the border with the Russy Federation, so the Empire’s army must prepare for battle. 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 Sioux, a girl who has sworn to exact justice against the Empire for the death of her father.
Most of the staff and cast return from the anime series.
