Aniplex of America and Funimation have confirmed that they have joined hands with North America for the release of the Japanese blockbuster Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. The movie is all set to see its premiere on April 23 with a new subtitled and English dubbed version.
Directed by Haruo Sotozaki, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is an adaptation of a manga series by Koyoharu Gotouge. It follows the adventures of a young boy named Tanjiro, who decides to join a group of Demon Slayers, to find the cure for his sister who has turned into a demon. The story is quite common according to the anime standards, but the too-notch animation by the studio helped it to stand alone among the top standard anime series.
Demon Slayer is now making a mark globally, leaving Your Name and spirited behind it has been the new sensation and the top-grossing movie at the Japanese box office, despite the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic.
The key reason why Demon Slayer has made such a great impact on the audience is that, rather than making a simple and traditional style anime series, they chose a slightly different path to entertain the audience.
Season 1 one of Demon Slayer has already debuted on Netflix, so the one who wants to enjoy the story before April 23, can stream it there. For those who can’t make it to a physical screening, Demon Slayer will also be available via electronic-sell-through starting June 22 on Apple TV.
