1st full visual for the hotly anticipated Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train also showed off
During a special program on AbemaTV on April 10, the first trailer and full visual of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train was finally released, and with it, the release date of the hotly anticipated anime film. The anime film was teased at the end of the TV anime adaptation of Koyoharu Gotoge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga series and will be released in Japan on October 16.
The voice actors for Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae) and Zenitsu (Hiro Shimono) appeared on the special via phone to join in the excitement for the upcoming anime film and looked back at all the specials previously released on AbemaTV during the TV anime broadcast.
The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train anime film will pick up exactly where the TV anime ended and will adapt the Mugen (Infinite) train arc from the manga series by Koyoharu Gotoge, which runs in Weekly Shonen Jump. Crunchyroll streamed the TV anime as is aired and describes it as such:
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train is scheduled to be released in Japan on October 16 with the staff and cast returning from the TV anime series. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba aired from April 6, 2019 to September 28, 2019, and was streamed on Crunchyroll moments after it finished in Japan.
