The devious little soldier is raising all kinds of hell in the upcoming feature film, “The Saga of Tanya the Evil: The Movie”. Based on the light novel series written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuk, The Saga of Tanya the Evil tells the story of an atheist Japanese salaryman who, in the moment of being murdered, is confronted by a self-righteous entity he refers to as “Being X”, who condemns the man for not believing that “Being X” is God. He is reborn in the body of a young girl who enters the military and quickly rises through the ranks. If she does not die a natural death, Tanya’s soul will be sent to Hell.
