Crunchyroll Movie Night Presents “Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple”

Bungo Stray Dogs Dead Apple

Earlier this week, Crunchyroll held a scavenger hunt of sorts. Fans had to use their sleuthing skills to determine which anime film Crunchyroll would be bringing to US theaters (and Canada as well!). The answer? Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple.

Crunchyroll Movie Night – a partnership between Crunchyroll, Screenvision Media, and KAOS Connect – will be bringing Dead Apple to (hopefully) a theater near you for three nights this May. It premieres May 2nd with additional screenings May 5th and 6th.

Just last week I attended a similar screening of Free! Take Your Marks hosted by Funimation. Like Take Your Marks, all screenings of Dead Apple will be accompanied by a special message from several of the voice actors, including Yūto Uemura (voice actor for Atsushi Nakajima), Kensho Ono (voice actor for Ryuunosuke Akutagawa), and Kishō Taniyama (voice actor for Chuuya Nakahara).

Here is the summary:

Six years has passed since the bloodbath known as the Dragon’s Head Rush conflict.

Over 500 people with supernatural powers have been found dead — presumably by suicide. The Armed Detective Agency is tasked with the mission to capture Shibusawa Tatsuhiko, the mysterious special ability user thought to be involved. But when Osamu Dazai disappears, the ”Demon” Fyodor begins showing his shadow.

Those with supernatural powers, known as Special ability users, are threatened by an onslaught of unprecedentedly powerful enemies, and the city of Yokohama begins falling into a terrifying nightmare.

Atsushi and Kyouka infiltrate Shibusawa’s fortress, where they are met by Akutagawa, who delivers an unthinkable truth.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased via the Crunchyroll Movie Night website. If you don’t see a theater near you, keep checking, as they are adding more theaters every week!
