Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train is a movie about a boy who’s turned into a slayer of demons. This movie has become a huge box office success in Japan – and is the fastest film in Japanese cinema history, to make 10 billion yen in just 10 days. The movie has managed to cross expectations, generation around $44 million in revenue in its first three days of screening.
Indian anime enthusiasts have been fond of the Kimetsu no Yaiba series for a long time. This movie is creating a huge buzz in the anime communities across the country with appeals to release the movie in India on a large screen.
So what is the story about?
Kimetsu no Yaiba is based on a vastly popular Japanese manga series of the same name. The story revolves around Tanjiro Kamado, a bright and intelligent boy who turns into a demon slayer after almost all his family is slaughtered by a demon.
The film is a direct sequel to the anime series and follows Tanjiro and his friends as they battle demons on board a moving train. The manga has over 22 volumes printed and a circulation of over 100 million copies, according to Shueisha Inc.
From the trailer, it seems that the story will remain true to its original manga arc. The plot kicks off with Enmu being recently released from Muzan’s cells and is raring to seek vengeance and attacks a mysterious moving train. Throughout the course of the attack, Enmu consumes multiple passengers on the train. Our savior and hero Tanjiro comes to help, but this train has more than one demon commuter…
The trailer has already captured the hearts of millions with positive reviews for the soundtrack and super cool animation effect along with the showcased storyline.
Indian Anime lovers cannot wait for the movie
There are multiple discussions that have started around the topic of requesting this movie to be released in India officially. One such petition has been signed by over 24000 Anime Enthusiasts to bring this movie on big screens to our country. Here’s hoping that after the successful screening of “Weathering With You” in India, it has opened a new door to bring Japanese Anime close to India.
