What is Demon Slayer: Mugen Train?
The 117-minute movie follows on from the end of series one of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
The plot goes something like this:
Falling forever into an endless dream…
Tanjiro and the group have completed their rehabilitation training at the Butterfly Mansion, and arrive to their next mission on the Mugen Train, where over 40 people have disappeared in a very short period of time.
Tanjiro and Nezuko, along with Zenitsu and Inosuke, join one of the most powerful swordsmen within the Demon Slayer Corps, Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, to face the demon aboard the Mugen Train on track to despair.
The film was directed by Haruo Sotozaki, with screenplay by ufotable and character design by Akira Matsushima. It is based on an original story by mangaka Koyoharu Gotoge.
Anime production is also by ufotable.
