‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ bids farewell with an epic ‘movie’ release


The highly popular Japanese anime, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is officially ending with chapter 205. However, fans are now anticipating the release of the upcoming movie, Mugen Train.

Since its first release, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has fans clamoring for more chapters of the demon-fighting series. However, the completion of the series has brought a spinoff series that will center on Rengoku.

The second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba may not arrive sooner than expected because of the current pandemic crisis. Most of the TV and movie productions have been temporarily suspended.

Nonetheless, fans will have something to look forward to in the upcoming Mugen Train movie which will air this year.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train release date

The Mugen Train is currently in the works and is confirmed to arrive at the streaming platforms on October 16, 2020. This was confirmed by the official Twitter account of the series.

This may be a logical explanation because of the seemingly available English Dub created by Aniplex America.  Although the English Dub is currently in the works, there is no confirmed release date of Mugen Train for US viewers.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train plot

The movie plot will immediately follow the events from season 1. It appears that the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train is a short break between season 1 and season 2. The demon-fighting characters are transported to a mysterious train that harbors demons. The demons are causing the disappearance of many passengers.

Following the events in season 1, Tanjiro Kamado aims at finding a cure to remove the demon curse on Nezuko. However, the journey in finding the cure is not an easy task because they have to kill the Twelve Demon Moons that possess the blood in healing Nezuko.

Although the plot of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train is still a mystery, fans have theorized on the possible plots.  Tanjiro and his friends might be able to meet the Twelve Demon Moons. However, there is no confirmation yet.

Tanjiro, Nezuko and Rengoku returns to the movie

The recently released trailer for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train provides a glimpse of the characters.  The trailer reveals Enmu, Tanjiro, and Inosuke, along with a few flame-fueled frames of Kyojuro Rengoku. Furthermore, Nezuko will also join the group in defeating demons.

Will Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train arrive in Netflix

Unfortunately, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-Mugen Train is not available on Netflix US, Australia, Canada, and the UK. All these regions need to access the series through Crunchyroll, FUNimation, and AnimeLab. Currently, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 1 is airing on Netflix Philippines, sitting on number 6 spot of the most-watched TV series.
