Plot

Following a recently failed quest, Kazuma Sato, Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness are visited by Yunyun. Yunyun explains about the letter from her father telling her to have a son with Kazuma to make their child avenge the people of Crimson Demon Village, her and Megumin's hometown, when they get destroyed. They discover that bearing a child with Kazuma is fabricated by her classmate, but Megumin decides to check her village's condition so Kazuma's party asks Wiz to teleport them.

After defeating a group of female orcs and an army of goblins with Yunyun and Crimson Magic Clan members' help, Kazuma's party arrives at the Crimson Demon Village and visits Yunyun's father, who admits exaggerating the aftermath of the attack on the village by one of the Demon King's generals named Sylvia. Afterward, Kazuma's party visits Megumin's house and meets her family, who becomes interested in Kazuma for his fortune. Later night, Megumin's mother Yuiyui sets up Kazuma to sleep with her daughter, but Megumin escapes the room. The following day, Megumin tours Kazuma and Aqua around the village by visiting her school and the storage building that holds the Mage Killer, a weapon capable of destroying the world. They later find Darkness fighting Sylvia and her army, but Sylvia retreats after learning the defeat of Verdia, Vanir, and Hans from Kazuma. Later night, Sylvia manages to take Kazuma hostage and brings him to the storage building to steal the Mage Killer, but Kazuma traps her inside and reunites with his party. She then fuses with the Mage Killer and begins destroying the Crimson Demon Village. Kazuma's party finds a rifle as a counter-weapon and uses it to kill Sylvia.

A dying Sylvia encounters Verdia and Hans in the afterlife and fuses with them to be revived as a giant monster. Wiz and Vanir arrive at the village for a business trip but end up joining the fight. Wiz collects the Crimson Magic Clan members' magic and transfers it to Megumin and Yunyun, while Kazuma deals with Sylvia to buy them time. Megumin and Yunyun destroy Sylvia with their combined powerful attack, with Kazuma getting perished as well. Afterward, Kazuma is revived and returns to Axel with his party. While on a picnic, Megumin asks Kazuma to put her experience points into another skill to be a useful mage without relying on her main magic. She casts her final Explosion skill as a farewell but finds it much stronger than usual, realizing that Kazuma disregarded her request and put the points on it instead. As they meet up with others, a heart-shaped smoke from the explosion forms in the sky.

Critical response

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Roger Avary gave KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson 5 out of 5 stars, feeling that the film gave him "easily one of the best experiences in a cinema I've ever had. I would go as far as saying it's the reason cinema was invented". [34] Nick Valdez at ComicBook.com also gave the film 5 out of 5, feeling that it "has not lost any of the pep in its step" despite being a couple of years since the franchise had released an anime adaptation due to its "fine balance between treating its characters with disrespect and love". He felt that the film had "[p]ure laughs, ridiculous situations, and even some impressive character growth rewarding long time fans". [35]

Writing for Den of Geek , Daniel Kurland gave the film 3.5 out of 5 stars, feeling that it "doesn't aim too high, but it's still a celebration of everything that makes this anime fantasy such a treat". He felt that the film was "likely to disappoint... [but] the characters remain enjoyable enough that the film amounts to a strong summation of the series" and lauded the addition of Sylvia who "makes for a fun addition that is actually intimidating". [36] Jordan Ramée at GameSpot gave the film 4 out of 10, feeling that it abandoned the "main series' traditional formula to deliver a story that's not very fun to watch". Ramée noted the main cast as the best aspect of the franchise but found the film struggling to "capture the same tone as the anime series because it splits up the core group of characters" to focus on Kazuma and Megumin. He criticized the film's repetitive humor and transphobic jokes that went "against the overall message of acceptance". [37]
