Why the "Demon Slayer" movie is such a unique anime success

Postby fhispweer » 18.11.2021, 09:57

One of the highest-grossing movies of 2020 is finally released in the United States.

"Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba-Movie: Mugen Train" released on Friday is not just an anime film about members of the Demon Slayer Corps trying to protect train passengers from being eaten by demons. This movie saved Japan's box office during the pandemic.

The record-breaking run of the "Devil Slayer" movie began in October. It took only 10 days in Japan to get more than 100 million US dollars in the box office, and became the fastest movie ever to reach this milestone. It has become the highest-grossing anime and the highest-grossing Japanese movie of all time. "Mugen Train" closed at the world's fourth highest box office in 2020, surpassing the "creed" hyped by Christopher Nolan, who ranked fifth.

These feats are impressive for any movie, but "Wooden Train" is not even a traditional independent function. The "Demon Slayer" movie is a direct continuation of the 26 episodes of the first season of the "Demon Slayer" TV series. Unlike other animation movies that go with TV, "Mugen Train" is not a derivative or a side story. It has its own classic, which aims to make it easier for viewers who may not be familiar with the series to understand.
What is a "devil killer"?
"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" was originally a comic series by Koyoharu Gotouge. The series is set in the Taisho era (1912-1926) in Japan and tells the story of the young Tanto Tanjiro, the kind eldest son of a family that produces and sells charcoal. One day, when he returned home, he found that his family had been slaughtered by a ghost or demon who was feeding on humans. The only survivor was his sister Nezuko, who had turned into a demon but eventually protected her brother.

After meeting with Yoshiyu Tomioka, a senior member of the secret warrior organization responsible for defeating the devil, Tanjirou was sent to train to become a demon killer. This allowed Tanjiro to avenge his family and tried every means to turn Nezuko back into a human.
Along the way, he got acquainted with Azuma Zenyi, who is also a member of the Demon Slayer, a cowardly boy, a sword fighter who can only be unexpectedly skilled when he loses consciousness, and a rough boy Raised by a wild boar, Hashihira Inosuke.

The "Devil Slayer" manga was serialized in Manga Weekly "Shounen Jump" from February 2016 to May 2020. The whole series consists of 23 volumes.
