The 26th and final episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba finally aired. However, it ended with fans at the edges of their seats and wanting more.
Don’t worry, because right after the end credits, ufotable also released this video:
Yes folks, the story of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime is going to continue… with an anime movie! Its title is Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-Hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Train Arc) .
Haruo Sotozaki will be returning to direct the anime over at ufotable, so expect some beautiful animations. Meanwhile, Akira Matsushima is also returning as character designer, and so is the main cast:
- Natsuki Hanae as Tanjirou Kamado
- Akari Kitou as Nezuko Kamado
- Hiro Shimono as Zenitsu Agatsuma
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Inosuke Hashibira
- Satoshi Hino as Kyoujurou Rengoku
Here’s how Aniplex describes the 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.
