On March 26, the official website of 'Saga of Tanya The Evil' anime movie revealed a new key visual:

The movie was announced in January 2018, taking place after the events of the TV anime series, and is currently in production. The show is based on the manga of the same name, and aired for 12 episodes aired from January 6, 2017 to March 31. Studio NUT adapted the manga into an anime. The original manga's story was developed by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki.

Here's the plot of the series according to MAL:

An atheist Japanese salaryman, 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 sentenced to be reborn in a world that is similar to World War I Europe, mixed with early aspects of World War II and magic, in an empire torn apart by countless wars with all nearby countries. The salaryman is reborn as a girl, Tanya Degurechaff. According to "Being X", if she's not able to die a natural death, or she refuses to have faith in Him, her soul will leave the circle and be sent to hell for the countless sins that Tanya has committed in her previous life. In search for an escape, Tanya decides to enter into the Empire's Mages Division and fight in the world war, hoping to reach a high enough rank as fast as possible to remain far from the battlefield, and in this way avoid the risk of being killed. Even if she's now forced to speak with a young girl's lisp, Tanya soon turns into a ruthless soldier who prioritizes efficiency and her own career over anything else, even the lives of those beneath her, especially those that get on her bad side.
