Released in Japanese cinemas last year, Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train is finally coming to Netflix in the Philippines on September 11, 2021. Finally, with this film’s upcoming release, Pinoy anime fans will finally have an official way to watch the movie following its limited cinema release in the country.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train (full title Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Movie MUGEN TRAIN) is the first feature-length film in the Demon Slayer series. The series itself started off as a manga that was serialized on Weekly Shonen Jump, and it then received an anime series adaptation which aired back in 2019.
The film’s premise 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.”
If you haven’t seen the series yet, you can also watch the full first season of Demon Slayer on Netflix.
