JR Kyushu Debuts Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Train To Celebrate Upcoming Anime Film

NHK World News shows off the limited express 'Sonic'

 Demon Slayer train


Japan has Mugen Train fever! With tickets selling out and crashing websites all over the country, it's only right that not only one, but two JR companies are collaborating with the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba THE MOVIE Mugen Train. After the JR East SL Gunma trains were announced in early September, JR Kyushu got in on the fun by debuting their own Demon Slayer trains, which started running last week.


NHK World News has a great video of the Limited Express 'Sonic' train, both from the station and from the sky:




Meanwhile, Kyushu Fukuoka Otaku Media got a video of the Limited Express 'Kamome' (train footage starts at 50 seconds):



Though we don't recommend traveling anywhere right now just to see trains, for people living in the Kyushu region, being able to see these on their daily activities would be awesome! Let's just hope they're safer than the trains in the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba series.
