Following its announcement a few weeks ago, the Demon Slayer Mugen Train series cut has now started streaming on Netflix (in the Philippines and in select countries at least), with the first episode now available.
In case you missed its reveal, ahead of the Demon Slayer Entertainment District arc (which is widely considered as Demon Slayer Season 2), a TV series version of the Mugen Train movie will release weekly starting October 10. This series version is essentially the Demon Slayer movie, but cut into six 20 minute episodes.
What makes this Mugen Train series version special is that the first episode is totally brand-new. Specifically, the first episode which you can watch now on Netflix, follows Rengoku the Flame Hashira, and it’s set around a day before the events of the Mugen Train arc.
While the Mugen Train TV version has now started airing, the Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc will air in Japan and in the West on Funimation and Crunchyroll on December 5, 2021. Currently though, there’s no word yet on if this arc will release on Netflix in the Philippines.
In related news, the Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc will feature a new opening and ending song performed by Aimer.
