If you're an anime fan who likes to keep up with news about the Demon Slayer movie, you're either crazy excited about every new update and milestone reached or you're sick and tired of hearing about it again and again. Regardless of which camp you fall into, it's impossible to deny that the movie has left a monumental impact on the anime community around the world. Whether that impact is lasting is still yet to be known.

In an update posted to the official Twitter account on Monday, March 15th, it was announced that Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train will be released to DVD and Blu-ray in Japan on Wednesday, June 16th with pre-orders beginning at midnight in Japan (so they began at 8 am Pacific/11 am Eastern on March 15th). The even better news is that they list the movie with English subtitles, which means an import of this item would make for an awesome collector's piece or gift for that special anime fan in your life.


To celebrate the announcement of the home video release, a new fifteen-second trailer was released. Warning: the trailer is short, but it still contains movie spoilers.

This movie has been a worldwide smash hit so far taking in over $400 million worldwide and it won't be long until the Demon Slayer movie will be hitting theaters in the USA. The first season of Demon Slayer is currently available on many platforms in both Japanese and English. Funimation and Aniplex have also released the series on home video in the United States, and Viz Media is releasing the manga.

Demon Slayer is impossible to ignore and is one of the most popular shonen properties of the last few years. The last time we had a series make this big of a splash was My Hero Academia, and even that didn't sell as many copies in one year as this series has!
