The Isekai Quartet: Another World movie release date in Japan has officially been confirmed to be on June 10, 2022, in early Summer 2022.

The time frame for the theater premiere in Japan was announced during a special live YouTube program on March 12, 2022. Overlord Season 4 voice actors Satoshi Hino (Ainz), Yumi Hara (Albedo), and Eimiri Kato (Aura Bella Fiora) discussed multiple topics, including the Overlord Season 4 release date and the Overlord Volume 15 release date.

The exact release date was announced by the Isekai Quartet: Another World trailer which was released on March 18, 2022.

On April 22, 2022, the main Isekai Quartet movie trailer was released.

The initial announcement was made by an Isekai Quartet movie trailer back in Summer 2021. Surprised? It’s not like an Isekai Quartet movie is completely unexpected.

When the second season finished, a chibi version of Roswaal L. Mathers from the Re:ZERO anime series announced that “the production of the sequel to Isekai Quartet has been decided.”

The biggest issue is whether the Isekai Quartet movie is the promised sequel that was officially announced back in March 2021.

Back when the announcement was initially made, it seemed like the sequel would be Isekai Quartet Season 3. Even the FUNimation news site announced the sequel as the third season, but the production decision announcement technically did not specify the format of the sequel.

At the same time, there’s no reason why there can’t be both a third season and an Isekai Quartet movie.

There have been a good number of anime announcements related to the Isekai Quartet anime series in 2021 and 2022. First, the Overlord Season 4 release date is in 2022 and an Overlord movie is confirmed to be in production. Then, The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 anime was also confirmed.

The KonoSuba Season 3 release date still hasn’t been announced despite a new KonoSuba anime project being announced in 2021. The only series to be left hanging is Re: Zero-Starting Life in Another World since the Re:Zero Season 3 anime hasn’t been announced despite the producer openly discussing the third season.

The Isekai Quartet movie will be produced by a returning staff at Japanese animation Studio PuYUKAI.

Director Minoru Ashina (Kaiju Girls, Re:Zero/Overlord/The Saga of Tanya the Evil animated shorts) is also writing the script. Artist Minoru Takehara (Agukara) is both the character designer and the chief animation director.

This article provides everything that is known about Isekai Quartet: Another World (Isekai Quartet movie) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

What’s the new character in the Isekai Quartet movie?

One big question is which characters will be featured in the new Isekai Quaret movie. After all, there are several newer isekai anime from Japanese publisher Kadokawa to choose from.

Notably, The Rising Of The Shield Hero’s Naofumi is shown on the key visual art despite Raphtalia and Naofumi originally only being temporary guest characters in the anime TV series. The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 release date is in Fall 2021 so that’s not much of a surprise, especially since The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 3 is already announced.

Cautious Hero’s Seiya and Ristarte also enjoyed a brief cameo in the second season. But since Cautious Hero Season 2 hasn’t been announced and the original author has moved on to focusing on the Full Dive: The Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Shittier than Real Life! light novel series it’s unlikely that they’re coming back.

The key visual for the series seems to be teasing a new character emerging from beneath the ground. It’s possible this new character is the villain for the Isekai Quartet movie since all the other main characters are running away.

Isekai Quartet: Another World USA release date predictions

As of the last update, Kadokawa, Studio PuYUKAI, or any company related to the production of the Isekai Quartet anime franchise has not officially confirmed the exact Isekai Quartet: Another World release date for international. However, the Isekai Quartet movie release date in Japan has officially been confirmed to be in June 2022.

Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.

In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when the Isekai Quartet movie USA release date will occur in the future.

November-December and May-July is typically considered the best timing for a tentpole film to have a chance at being a blockbuster premiere whereas January and February are considered the “dump months” for bad movies. Considering that info, it’s not surprising that the Isekai Quarter: Another World release date was set for June, which is early Summer 2022.

The only question is if the movie will be released internationally in theaters. Typically, that pleasure is limited to only the big anime franchises like Dragon Ball, but some of the smaller anime movies will receive limited screenings in the United States, Canada, UK, etc. But if it doesn’t premiere internationally it’ll likely be streaming on Crunchyroll eventually.

Let’s just be glad Kadokawa didn’t make fans wait too long to know the Isekai Quartet movie release date. Stay tuned!
