It would be fair to say that there’s a lot of anticipation surrounding the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba film. With the series continuing to be a massive success and one which is only growing from strength to strength as time goes on even following the manga’s end, all eyes are on the upcoming film as it seeks to continue the story of the series in animated form. A few days prior it was announced that Japanese internet streaming platform AbemaTV would air a special program on the upcoming film on August 2nd where new information on the film would be released. Thanks to that program, the latest trailer for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train has been released, showcasing new footage and the film’s theme song by LiSA.
This movie picks up right where the TV series left off with Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu boarding the Magen Train. This movie promises to tell the story of what happens on this train as they face off against one of the 12 Kizuki, Lower One Enmu. Aside from having a very cool design that features a mouth protruding from their hand, their abilities send our protagonists into an endless dream that they must wake from in order to have any chance of protecting Nezuka and surviving. The trailer shows some of the dream and fights on the train itself, all impressively animated as one would perhaps expect from the talent over at ufotable and the series based on the original TV show.
LiSA returns with music for the series in the form of the song Homura, and it should come as no surprise that LiSA’s powerful vocal performance once again stands out here. Her song for the TV series has been a major success and become her biggest song to date, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see this song match that level of success.
This latest trailer also reaffirms the release date for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train of October 16th in Japan, with a later release in the US and Canada in 2021. You can find out more about the film over on its official website.
