There is little doubt that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train has already achieved so much during its North American theatrical release. However, it looks like the film is set to achieve even more this month. The anime flick has been confirmed to begin streaming on Funimation next week.
Mugen Train was initially released in Japan in October last year where it was an instant hit. However, the Demon Slayer movie, which served as the sequel to the show's first season, would not be released in the US until April 2021. The long wait certainly had fans fired up for the film and it became the highest-grossing Japanese film and anime film of all time.
But if you still didn't get enough of the Kimetsu no Yaiba film, you can look forward to its digital release. Funimation confirmed the Demon Slayer movie will stream exclusively on the platform next Tuesday.
