Film opens in Japan on October 16

Thai anime film distributor Japan Anime Movie (JAM) Thailand announced on Saturday that it will open Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-Hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Movie: Mugen Train) — the upcoming sequel anime film for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba television anime series — in theaters in Thailand on November 5.

The film will open in Japan on October 16.

The main staff members of the television anime are returning for the sequel. TOHO and Aniplex are handling the film's distribution.

Aniplex of America describes the television anime's story:

It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.

Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.

Koyoharu Gotouge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga inspired a television anime that premiered in April 2019, and aired its 26th and final episode last September.

The manga debuted in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2016, and ended on May 18. Shueisha will ship the manga's 21st compiled book volume on July 3. The franchise will have more than 80 million copies in circulation by the 21st volume's release.
