Crunchyroll Bringing 'KIZUMONOGATARI -Koyomi Vamp' To Cinemas For One Night Only

Vampires are an enduringly popular pop culture staple. From Dracula to What We Do In The Shadows, bloodsuckers have been appearing in films and television all the way back to the silent era. They're also popular in anime, with series such as Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D, Rosario+ Vampire, right up to last season's Vampire Dormitory. Crunchyroll have announced that have acquired the North American and select international theatrical rights to the supernatural vampire film compilation KIZUMONOGATARI -Koyomi Vamp.

KIZUMONOGATARI -Koyomi Vamp is a three film anime adaptation, comprised of edited footage from the trilogy of films of the same name previously released in 2016 and 2017 with animation produced by Shaft.

KIZUMONOGATARI  centers around a high school boy named Koyomi Araragi who survives an encounter with a gorgeous but helpless vampire called Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade. 

Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment will bring the film to cinemas for one day only, in North America and Mexico on August 28 and Australia on September 5.

It was one fateful evening when Koyomi Araragi encountered her – Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade: Legendary Vampire, Killer of Apparitions, and King of Apparitions. Her legs and arms were cruelly torn apart, her extravagant dress soaked in red; she’s a monster who finds herself in a tragic state, lying in a pool of her own blood. However, Koyomi finds her to be beautiful this way. 

The film is written by and directed by Nisioisin and animated by Shaft, KIZUMONOGATARI takes you back to the beginning of the MONOGATARI series. Originally based on the series of light novels, which have been adapted into anime series and movies starting with the first season in 2009.
