During the ABEMA special for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba THE MOVIE Mugen Train tonight, it was announced that Tokyo Skytree would be lit up in flames tonight until midnight tonight, and then from October 16 to 18. Footage from fans of the series close to the tower in Tokyo, which is the tallest structure in Japan, showed the tower illuminated red.

Also, earlier in the day, anime studio Ufotable released a cute, but a little depressing, “the bonds between brother and sister” visual featuring Tanjiro and Nezuko in the same style as the ending credits of the anime. The image was created to celebrate the ABEMA special that night and the talk at Jump Special Anime Festa online event this afternoon, which featured some footage from the upcoming movie.
