The trailer features the theme song of the movie “Make Me Feel Better” performed by MindaRyn, and also gives us a more in-depth look at the events, which will occur in the film Scarlet Bond. The trailer begins with Rimuru and his comrades setting out on a journey. When they arrive in the Kingdom of Razha things appear to be amiss there, and the river is polluted.

Rimuru investigates things surrounding a mysterious queen named Towa and an ogre survivor named Hiiro. Hiiro happens to be Benimaru’s “brother”, but certain events will cause these two to end up fighting. Hiiro is apparently out for revenge, but why? The traveling, pointy-toothed peddler, Lacua, appears to be behind certain events that lead to Hiiro going berserk. But what is Lacua really after? We’ll have to wait until Scarlet Bond’s premiere in order to find out!
