Great news, anime fans! ODEX Philippines has just announced that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train will be released in Philippine cinemas soon! While the highly-anticipated Demon Slayer movie is getting a PH cinema release, there’s no word yet on its release date.
With the Demon Slayer movie scheduled to release in Japan on October 16, 2020, we expect the film to release in the Philippines sometime after, ideally in November or December. Here’s hoping that cinemas are back in regular operations by that time considering that cinemas in various regions in the Philippines are currently closed due to quarantine measures against COVID-19.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train is set directly after the events of the anime series’s first season. The film’s story is described as:
“Tanjiro and the group have completed their rehabilitation training at the Butterfly Mansion, and they 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.”
