“Demon Slayer – Mugen Train”, also known as “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train,” has been a worldwide box-office hit. The 2020 anime movie broke all records in Japan when it was released during the autumn season. Variety reported that “Demon Slayer Mugen Train” was the country’s biggest box-office hit by December last year. It beat Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film “Spirited Away” in 2001 to become the previous record-holder. According to Indie Wire the film grossed around $350 million at the Japanese box office.
It seems that “Demon Slayer – Mugen Train” was also destined to be a box office hit in the U.S. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the film debuted in April with $21million at the U.S. Box Office. This makes it the largest U.S. debut for a foreign-language film. This is remarkable considering that “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train”, a sequel to the anime series, may have required its viewers to be familiar with its lore.
Despite the record-breaking success of the movie in theaters, many people are still left wondering when they will be able to watch it at home. This is especially true as we wait for Season 2. The anime film’s digital release is not too far away.
Demon Slayer: The Mugen Train will stream this summer
“Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 1” is over. “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train” follows Tanjiro Kamado’s siblings and Nezuko Camado, along with fellow demon slayers Zenitsu agatsuma and Inosuke Hashibara and Kyojuro Rengoku.

According to the official Demon Slayer anime website “Demon Slayer – Mugen Train” will be available for rent or purchase on all VOD platforms starting June 22, 2021.

The Ending of Demon Slayer Season 1 Explained
“Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba” is the most popular anime series of all time. The manga adaptation is centered on Tanjiro Kamado (a teenager who finds out that his family was brutally murdered). As he tries to unravel the mystery, he discovers that his sister Nezuko has been transformed into a demon by the same demon who killed their family. Nezuko is able to recognize her brother and resists killing people. She then joins Tanjiro as he attempts to become a demon-slayer. The first season of “Demon Slayer” features Tanjiro training while he searches for a way to make Nezuko a human again.
Although the first season was quite straightforward, it raises many questions for the next seasons. We don’t need to wait long to find out the answers as the sequel film, “Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train”, is currently playing in theaters. It will also soon be available on streaming services. Let’s look at the end of “Demon Slayer: Season 1” and what the future holds for the show.
Season 1 ends in a perfect setting for the movie
We see Tanjiro and Nezuko with their friends Zenitsu, Inosuke, and their friend Zenitsu board the Mugen train to embark on their next mission, which is to find out what happened to the 40 missing passengers. Tanjiro’s Kasuagi Crow instructs them to meet Hashira member Kyojuro Ringoku on board the train. The group then heads off to their next adventure. The perfect transition into Season 1’s movie “Mugen Train” is the end of Season 1. It looks like most of the movie’s events take place on the mysterious locomotive.
The trailer shows demon slayers arriving at the Yoshiwara Red-Light District to face even more enemies. Fans who can get the manga series will be able to see the movie and show soon. It’s going to be thrilling, and we cannot wait to find out the secrets behind the Mugen train.
A new enemy is introduced at the end of Season 1.
The episode’s first episode features the Lower Moons having an intense meeting with Muzan Kibutsuji. He is angry that they are not strong enough to his liking. After he has killed each of the Lower Moons, he asks Lower One for his last words. Kibutsuji is impressed by the Lower One’s answer. He injects some of his blood into Lower One to increase his power. He tells Lower One that if Hashira is killed, or Tanjiro if he feels he can be more useful, he will give him more blood.
The last scene of the season shows Lower One, creepily smiling, as the demon slayers and oblivious demons prepare to embark on their journey. Now that we have seen the trailer for “Mugen Train”, we know that Lower One is the main antagonist. He seems to lure train passengers into a hypnotic state, before killing them. Fans who can’t wait to see “Demon Slayer 2: Kimetsu No Yaiba: Mugen Train” Season 1 will love the seamless transition. If it’s anything like Season 1, “Mugen Train”, will most likely set the stage for the next season.
