The movie that took the world by storm and broke records has finally arrived on Funimation, today’s review will be going over Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Mugen Train.
Picking up where the season finale left off, Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu make their way onto the train where they tasked to assist the Flame Hashira, Kyōjurō Rengoku in his mission to hunt for a demon that has killed many demon slayers, what they don’t realize is that the lower rank one of the Twelve Kizuki, Enmu has set up a trap, causing the demon slayers to fall into a deep sleep and has tasked four passengers who are suffering from severe insomnia to enter the demon slayers’ dreams and destroy their spiritual cores so that they can’t wake up again. In exchange, Enmu will allow them a peaceful sleep.
This was one of the most visually stunning anime films in recent years, aside from the intense fighting sequences this gave viewers a chance to get another perspective of these characters, through their subconscious, take Rengoku for example, his undying resolve taking the form of a hot, scorching desert on fire. Tanjiro, a serene lake under a stunning summer sky symbolizing the peace and warmth at his very core, meanwhile the dreams, even if some were for the comedic purpose (speaking of Inosuke and Zenitsu) does show what these characters deepest desires are, and what they have lost, Tanjiro and Rengoku’s dreams involved family, lost due to demons, the everyday life and familial connections that were so precious to them.
One of the things I stress the most is that if you’re a regular moviegoer who is looking to watch this movie and have no clue what’s going on and that is ok, but be sure to do your research before watching this film for the first time, the Mugen Train Film covers the Story Arc which runs from Chapters 54 through 69, and it is collected in Volumes 7 and 8. It gave good character development for the main cast but none in its villain Enmu. But what can you expect from him? He was a sadist, one that enjoys watching his victims suffer, letting them experience their greatest dreams only so he can watch the horror on their faces as they awaken to him killing them. One of the best things about this film was the combination of traditional animation with 3D animation and merged into this colorful masterpiece, Vivid colors, dynamic camera movements, one of UFOTable’s best works.
