Review: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train

Watching Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: the Movie Mugen Train

Finally, the first anime movie adaptation of the most popular manga Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was just released in Japan on the 16th October, 2020. I went to the theater to watch Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train (劇場版 鬼滅の刃 無限列車編), which is also known as Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Infinity Train, as a big fan of both anime and manga of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

The box office of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train just reached 10 billion yen (about 100 million dollars) in 10 days from its release. It’s expected to bread the record of the famous Studio Ghibli movie Spirited Away released in 2001, which is the highest-grossing movie in Japanese history with 30.8 billion yen.

* I don’t want to be a spoiler for those who have not watched Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train. Here is no spoiler, so you don’t worry to continue reading this article to get to know what Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train is like.

The popular manga was adapted into an anime series with 26 episodes at first in 2019, and its sequel was released in 2020 as Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train. The first season of the anime series covers the story until the middle of the volume 7, followed by the anime movie with the story of the rest of the vol.7 and vol.8.

I want to focus on the quality of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, firstly. The quality of the anime movie keeps the same level of the first anime series aired in 2019, or higher. I wondered if that was a live-action movie when I saw its first scene. The high quality is a product of the Japanese anime studio ufotable’s hard work.

I found that lots of visitors laughing and crying on and off (so I did). Quite a few scenes touched my heartstrings on many occasions though I had known the story with the manga. To my disappointment, it is difficult to talk more details about the story since I don’t want to be a spoiler.

However, it’s strongly recommended to watch Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train regardless of whether you have read the manga or not.

After watching the anime film, I purchased the movie brochure of Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train. There were various exclusive items that you can get only at the theater this time like the pictures above.

As you know, there are still many parts that have been not made into anime adaptations yet (specifically, from vol.9 to vol.23). I already look forward to experiencing the next title of the anime series.
