The director is planning to release new episodes of the anime series “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba”, which tells about the adventures of demon hunters. But he is not ready to openly share his plans. While unofficial sources are betting that the sequel to the anime will be released in the fall of 2021, 2020 has given fans a full-length film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train. Its premiere took place in October.
Bloodthirsty killers attacked humanity, but the responsibility for the sister will not allow the main character to surrender. Together with his friends, he is ready to fight any enemy.
A few years ago, Tanjiro’s father died and now he is responsible for his loved ones. Becoming the head of the family, the guy somehow managed his duties. But one night, in his absence, trouble came. After the sudden attack of the demons, only sister Nezuko remained alive. But the troubles did not end there – now the girl has become one of the monsters, but with human emotions.
After the incident, the hunters behind the demonic creatures began to hunt not only for them, but also for the unfortunate Nezuko. And only the eldest brother Tanjiro is able to protect her. At the same time, he is ready to make every effort and, if it is required, life, so that his beloved sister becomes just a girl again.
Tanjiro and Nezuko set off on a long and very dangerous journey, the goal of which is to find the killer who took the life of their relatives and take revenge, and also to acquire a potion from turning a girl into a monster. Due to the fact that Nezuko did not fully become a demon, but only gained their strength, a brother should not be afraid of sister’s bites – she is not a cannibal. Cooperating with other hunters, the guys defy the enemies – and no one can go unpunished.
The new season about the struggle of the young monster hunter will reveal the next secrets of the enemy. But who actually became the main character’s sister Nezuko? Will she be able to become the enemy of Tanjiro, or will she reunite with him in the fight against evil?
