It will be displayed as theatres in Japan from October 31. You can see both of them battling to the death in the new promotional video below with gorgeous animation from the studio working on the series and film Ufotable.

    Akira Ishida (Voices: Akaza) | Comment

    “When I read the script, I saw how it certainly isn’t wrong that Akaza is a character who makes sense when it comes to good and evil. And not just him either. Kyojuro is like that too. And they both clash when it comes to these two things, and I found that dynamic to be really interesting. I hope people get to enjoy it at the cinema.”
