Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train Movie : A Recap
Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train covers the Mugen Train Arc, the seventh of the manga which takes place right after Season 1 ends. The plot for the movie revolves around our beloved group of demon slayers: Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu. Emmu, a demon, is the antagonist of the movie. She plans to kill Tanjiro to rise to a High Rank in the Twelve Kizuki.
Tanjiro takes on a mission to kill the demon who was responsible for many people disappearing on the train. Instead, the group falls prey to Emmu’s powers drifting to sleep as she attempts to destroy their spiritual cores.
Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train was released only in Japan in 2020. The Coronavirus Pandemic definitely led to delays in release in other regions. Fans were greeted with good news on 16th March 2021 that Demon Slayer Movie: Mugen Train will also be available on digital platforms in 2021.
