The Mugen Train film based on Demon Slayer broke all box office records. The second season, which has Tanjiro and the Demon Slayer Corps against the most formidable demons they’ve met so far, is available on streaming services including Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Hulu.
In other news, the Demon Slayer Corps will be airing on Cartoon Network sooner than anime fans may imagine, which means the Mugen Train has finally arrived at Toonami station.
Toonami’s upcoming translation of the Demon Slayer manga is a television version of the Mugen Train Arc, not the box-office smash movie. Tanjiro and his teenage allies are looking for a way to remove Nezuko’s demonic possession while also eliminating the demon ruler Muzan.
While on their adventure, the shonen heroes are introduced to Rengoku the Flame Hashira, the most powerful member of the Survey Corps and an avid eater, by the Mugen Train.
In 2022, Jason DeMarco, co-creator of the Toonami block on Cartoon Network, said that the anime series Demon Slayer was “too expensive” to license. Fortunately, it now appears that Tanjiro will be returning to the cable channel.
Demon Slayer’s Mugen Train Arc Premieres on Toonami
The Mugen Train Arc of “Demon Slayer” will premiere on the November 11 episode of “Toonami” on the Cartoon Network. There has been no word yet on whether or not the remaining episodes of Season 2 (the Entertainment District Arc) will be included in this run.
Demon Slayer’s long-awaited return to Toonami, coinciding with the impending debuts of Rengoku, Akaza, and the rest of the Mugen Train plot, is likely to pique the interest of some anime watchers.
Earlier this year, viewers of the anime series Demon Slayer could see the Swordsmith Village Arc from the show’s third season. The fourth season will premiere in 2019, thrusting Tanjiro and his companions into the Hashira Training Arc.
There isn’t much left from the original material to adapt at this point, and it’s not known how many more seasons Demon Slayer has until the series ends.
